  • Great location in Cruz Bay, lovely studio

    "The studio was just what we needed for our stay in Cruz Bay. It was clean, well-designed , and had a wonderful smell to it...sounds bizarre but it was really a most pleasant smell. The unit had everything we needed -- the kitchenette had a small fridge, coffee maker, plates, glasses, etc., the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. The description and pictures were very accurate. The view from the terrace is lovely. The reserved parking spot was taken by the occupants of the one-bedroom unit but we were able to find a free unassigned spot for the night -- for longer stays you might want to make sure you have a spot as parking in Cruz Bay can be a challenge. On all our previous trips to St. John we have just stayed in Cruz Bay but on this trip we decided to spend most of the trip staying out on the East End (in or near Coral Bay). At the end, though, we needed our Cruz Bay "fix" and we had wanted to try Grande Bay so this place was perfect. We walked to dinner at a great new restaurant in Cruz Bay called Extra Virgin, and then the next day to shops for some souvenirs. It was very quick and easy working with Kevin on the reservation which we really appreciated. We will definitely consider staying there again when we return to St. John."

  • Wonderful location and Staff!

    "We spent a week in December at the house. We are a family of 5 with three young children. The home is beautifully maintained by the sweetest and helpful two women - Ilsia and Delia. We had every meal catered to and ate outside under a picturesque pergola. While I was a little under the weather, Ilsia and Delia thoughtfully made me some fresh lemonade daily until I got better. The house is directly across from the beach and not a far drive from the Marina. It has plenty of room and a very indoor/outdoor feel since the plantation shutters/doors line the main living area - perfect for enjoying the balmy breeze. The bedrooms are air-conditioned which is great at night to keep the mosquitos at bay. You can't get a better location/staff for the value!"

    "We had a fantastic holiday here! The Tree House is really cute and comfortable and the balcony covered to get away from the sun. The hammocks below are great for an afternoon siesta. The kayaks make the journey out to the reef accessible and the reef fish and turtles make great snorkelling. We never got to see a manitee which some people do apparently. Rubio, the caretaker, is a gem and he took me out spear-fishing on the reef getting a good haul for the BBQ. All in all highly recommended."

  • Great Place for Couples or Families

    "My wife and I stayed 5 nights at this house in June 2016, and we would ABSOLUTELY go back! The grounds are beautiful and make you feel very secluded. It is in a very quiet section of the island, but it is very close to Hope Town, a convenience store, and several restaurants. You will practically have the beach in front of the house to yourselves, and having "On Da Beach" next door was much more of an amenity than an issue - nice to have good, relatively inexpensive (for the Bahamas) food and drinks right next door, plus they close down around 7 p.m.! You can't beat having breakfast overlooking the ocean and sitting on the back deck at night to see a million stars! The main house is divided into LR/DR/K/MBR in larger unit, with a double bed and single bed plus bath unit across the breezeway. Small cottage on the grounds sleeps at least 2 more. It was just the two of us on this visit, but we could easily see bringing the whole family plus a couple of friends, and everyone would be quite comfortable and have some private space. The owner and property managers were excellent and very responsive. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience!"
