  • Perfect Views in a Zen Like Atmosphere

    "The online pictures of Villa Towanda on VRBO don't do it justice because the property has a serene feel and vibe (with just the right touch of Indonesian charm) that simply can't be captured in still photos. The roads up to the property are steep and the location would be difficult to find on your own, so we definitely needed to meet the manager at Long Bay Beach Resort to follow him up. Definitely rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle! We loved the outdoor/indoor living spaces typical in the Caribbean. The management team is very responsive and great to work with. The kitchen and living/dining rooms were under the terrace cover and flowed outside right to the pool. The villa has three self enclosed "suites" consisting of a bedroom and bathroom that are all of approximately equal size...two are stacked (upstairs/downstairs) and the third is upstairs but separated from the other two with an incredible view and outdoor shower. The main problem with the property is that the bedrooms are not air conditioned (and easily could be) and the fans are not sufficient to keep you cool at night with the mosquito nets down (and the electricity sometimes going out at night to turn your fan off). Other than the lack of A/C, it was a perfect stay in a perfect setting."

  • Paradise found on Grace Bay!

    "Wow! That is the best word to describe our vacation at Pam and George's condo this month. My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in grand style and booking George's condo was the best decision we ever could have made. From start to finish the process was easy as could be. Before our trip George gave us tips on restaurants, car rental and activities. His insight helped us to plan our trip around the things we really wanted to do. He recommended renting a car and we are so glad we did. There is so much to see on the island and a car is the way to see it all at your own pace. We felt safe and never hesitated to go anywhere. The people on the island were so helpful and kind which made exploring a real pleasure. Upon arrival at the airport we were met by the property manager, Lucy, and she was great. She had everything all set for our rental car pick up and she escorted us to the resort and helped us settle in. The resort is beautiful! Lovely well-maintained grounds, beautiful pool area and the beach is the best in the Caribbean! The condo itself was absolutely gorgeous! It was perfect for the two of us and so clean! It was great to have a kitchenette and laundry right in the condo. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony each morning listening to the ocean breeze. We went to the local grocery and the Wine Cellar and stocked up on food and alcoholic beverages. This was the way to go for us because we didn't want to have three huge meals everyday. We chose to eat in for breakfast and lunch and then splurge on dinner. The food on the island is very expensive so having the kitchen in the condo was perfect for us. The beach is nothing short of amazing! Beautiful turquoise blue water, so clear you could see all the way to the bottom. The sand was clean, white powdery sand. The best part of the beach was having the VIP club. We had a special section of blue umbrellas and chairs that were just for folks renting from owners. We never had to wait for a chair or reserve one. We always had the sporting equipment available to us. The beach butlers through the VIP club were terrific especially Joseph! He was so nice and knowledgeable about things to do on the island. We took our own drinks to put in the cooler so we never had to leave the beach. You can walk 15 min to the best snorkeling I've ever seen. We ate at several restaurants and Asu at the Alexandra was our favorite! Renting from George and Pam was the way to go!"

  • Luminaria is amazing!

    "Our family group of seven adults and a 3-moth old baby stayed at Luminaria for two weeks. It was a wonderful experience. First, the house is beautiful--well laid out and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped ( a good thing, because with a baby, we did not eat out). We were even able to watch a little of the NCAA basketball tournament! The living area is very spacious, and gave us plenty of room to watch basketball, read a book, take a nap, or sit in the sun, without getting in each other's way. The pool was lovely, especially for those who had to stay home with the baby while the rest of the group went snorkeling. The driveway is very steep--even with dry weather, you will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle. But that was a worthwhile trade-off to get the amazing views. I can't imagine that many places have views over both Coral Bay and the Drake Passage. We enjoyed watching the boats in the Passage and the sailboats in Coral Bay. The Viva Villa team was great, supplying us with a first-rate greeter (Magabe) and responding quickly to our complaint of the downstairs bathroom drains clogging. The downside of being on top of a mountain is that you have to drive to go anywhere. But we managed to snorkel at least once a day, and even took the baby with us a couple of times. Plenty of shade at Trunk Bay (but get there early), Maho Bay and Francis Bay. We also enjoyed our snorkel-sunset sail with Virgin Magic Charters. We'd come back in a heartbeat if St. John were a little easier to get to."

    "Marilyn and Rich - your home is absolutely beautiful! Our family had the most relaxing and perfect vacation! The house was wonderfully equipped and had all the amenities one may need, from cooking on the grill to preparing morning breakfast! We loved the lazy days by the pool and the constant Tradewind breezes. Nights were star filled while relaxing in the hot tub. Thank you for sharing your house - we could not of had a more perfect vacation! Beth and Greg Altemus"
