Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Tesori is a touch of Paradise. It is just as magnificent as described by Destination St. John. Kelly was immediately responsive to any questions I had along the way. We rented the villa to celebrate our son’s wedding on island. As Westin St. John time share owners we have vacationed on St. John for the past 14 years. Our youngest fell in love with the Island and moved there several years ago. Visiting St. John for this memorable occasion enabled us to look outside the box and search for a villa for our extended family. In an effort to make this event even more spectacular we spent hours choosing the perfect property. Villa Tesori is child friendly and was ideal for our daughter’s 1, 4 and 6 year old children. The spacious well-appointed accommodations, the view, the landscaping, beautiful swimming pool and gazebo, BBQ, snorkeling equipment and multiple other amenities brought our family together in so many ways. For those who are looking for the perfect location, a touch of elegance along with a view that just can’t be beat, Villa Tesori is the place to be. From this property you can easily explore the natural beauty of the island, its’ pristine beaches along with the expansive, breathtaking National park. Thank you to the owners of Villa Tesori and Destination St. John for providing us with a such a memorable experience.

Wonderful Christmas Time Stay at Villa Tesori

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay in St. John but first time staying at Villa Tesori, and it definitely was one of our best experiences with a villa. The location of the villa is extremely convenient to Cruz Bay, the beaches, and other key spots on the island. The house itself is very comfortable, outfitted with everything that you need to have a great stay. We appreciated that it had snorkel equipment, rafts, chairs, beach towels, etc. The view at Villa Tesori is really second to none. It was spectacular. The layout of the villa was perfect for our family of four and two sets of extended family (aunts and cousins).

Magnificent in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous villas over 20 + years of vacationing in St. John & I can honestly say that Villa Tesori is the absolute total package -- from the view to the location, the quality and beauty of the home, as well as the thoughtful details put into the villa, there is nothing this owner has neglected. The villa is situated to take advantage of the incredible views & the constant cooling breeze -- a fact very much appreciated during one of St. John's notorious June heat waves !!

Our favorite part was the terrace & pool area & if you will take time to read the owners' blog, believe them when they say that you should consider spending a day or 2 at the villa and enjoy all it has to offer. We did this on more than one occasion, enjoying the fantastic pool & bar area to cooking most all of our dinners in the fabulous kitchen or outdoor grill area & dining alfresco most nights -- truly an exceptional experience !

The time we spent together as a family was priceless --- the fact that we had a generator when the power went out for hours was equally as treasured !!! We never missed a beat although all over the island , people were talking about the big outage on both St. Thomas & St. John !! Again, the owners' attention to detail was highly appreciated !

We did have an issue with a bothersome & smelly septic system glitch although the mgmt company did eventually get someone out to pump the tank on the day that we were departing & the new guests arriving -- her explanation was to blame us & say that we overused the system however the odor was present upon arrival & we did mention it to the maintenance man as we were moving in & also notified mgmt numerous times in our stay -- at one point, one of the bedrooms was unusable because of the smell but the sofas are wide & welcoming and the couple were fine with sleeping in the great room.

BUT even with this singular hiccup, the positives of the staff & villa far outweigh the one negative item & I would not hesitate to stay (or recommend) in this property again if I'm so fortunate to have the opportunity in the future.

Trust me, if you're looking for a memorable vacation in a fantastic villa with exceptional finishes & views, your search is over !! Villa Tesori is amazing & over the top when compared to other similarly priced properties on the island ---

This house has everything

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Villa Tesori (we stayed there back in May 2010), and it was improved from last time. We had 5 couples for 6 nights at, and it is the perfect place. The location and views are spectacular, and the house has everything - 10 beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels, beautiful rooms/bathrooms, a sound system, etc. Everything you could think of is there to use. I don't want to recommend it too much, as I want it to be available the next time we go to St John!

WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tesori exceeded our expectations for a wonderful family holiday. From our grandson's gasp of delight in first seeing the view to Rendezvous Bay at the top of the stairs leading to the Villa to our farewell to that same vista, we loved it! We rented the Villa to share with our two daughters' families--an extended family holiday to celebrate the year of our 50th wedding anniversary. Photos of the Villa match reality--it is as beautiful as it looks. Our 4 grandchildren ages 13-10 spent hours in the pool. The veranda provided the perfect place for group games. All ten of us enjoyed meals around the long dining table or at the pool deck table. About half of our meals were easily prepared in the exceptionally well-equipped kitchen. Happily, the Villa had snorkeling equipment to outfit the entire family for trips to the beaches--about a 20 minute drive from the Villa; we especially enjoyed Trunk Bay, Maho Bay, and Waterlemon Cay--many fish, coral, turtles, and rays. First time visitors to St. John need to know that a car will be necessary to enjoy this island. We enjoyed lovely dinners at Morgan's Mango, Ocean Grill, and The Terrace all in Cruz Bay and all happy to accommodate a group of 10. Happily the property manager had left a welcome basket of crackers and cheese--a most welcome treat after traveling from the snowy north country all day.
