  • Perfect Secluded Getaway!

    "We stayed at Hawksnest for Two and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. From the beginning the owner was super responsive - gave us great options - and we had zero issues during the whole rental process. Their concierge met us at the ferry dock as promised, secured our car rental at a better on-line rate and brought us there to pick up the car. (This is important - because a rough start can get your vacation off on the wrong foot!) The home was well maintained and the view was stunning. We enjoyed coffee every morning and sunsets at night after amazing days at the beach. I HIGHLY recommend a rental car. Toting a cooler, beach bag and chairs (provided) down the driveway would have been tough. We had one day that was completely rained out and the movies and music were the perfect alternative. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if that is how you want to do it. We cannot wait to go back! Only minor negative was no dryer for suits and towels - the cloths lines were great as long as we got things inside before any rain during the night."

  • Wonderful Spring Break Trip!

    "Our family of five really enjoyed our first trip to Puerto Rico thanks to Cunneen and her property. The villa was perfectly suited for our stay and roomy enough for everyone. Cunneen and her assistant were always quick to respond to any inquiries we had prior to and during our stay. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and convenience of the pool. The villas in Rio Mar are secure and the security staff were very visible throughout the complex. It was close to everything we needed and we enjoyed many day trips along with relaxing days at the villa. We will definitely return!"

  • Absolutely Wonderful!

    "I honestly cannot say enough about what a fantastic time we had in St. Maarten. We love this villa and will definitely return! My husband and I came here for our annual adult escape and the property was perfect, the location is perfect, you can walk to the beach, bars, restaurants and the local store if you need anything small. We rented a jeep and explored the island every day. The people we met were so friendly too! When we arrived, the villa was clean, the pool was clear and Jill arrived with a welcome gift for us. Gordon was so nice to stop by and walk through everything, and gave us tips on places to go. Jill was excellent with helping us make all of the arrangements, thank you again! Next time we will return with friends! I highly recommend Captain Neil with the Celine Too, any of his trips will not disappoint. We ate all over the island, loved Orient Beach and Great Bay Beach. A few of the places we went to: Buccaneer Beach Bar, Greenhouse, Café Atlantico, St. Maarten Yacht Club, The Sky's the Limit, Skipjacks, Pineapple Petes, Dinghy Dock (drinks), Busby's Beach Bar, Calmos, Sunset Beach Bar, and Taloula Mangos! Definitely try the lobster at Skipjacks, and the Guavaberry Coladas at Sunset Beach Bar and Taloula Mangos. The food was excellent, the service was much slower but that is expected in the islands. Also, the dive master who lives below is extremely quiet, we rarely knew he was around. The cleaning lady was so nice to come in midweek to clean up and the pool man was also very friendly! Take the time to enjoy this amazing island, visit as many beaches as you can! We didn't like Mullet Bay Beach, but that was just us. Found it too quiet, and didn't like sliding down the sand to get to the water, but it was very popular for families. We truly had no major issues, loved running around all day and coming back to this beautiful villa. Stay away from the time share scams, they will just waste your time and believe me nothing is free! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home, we will definitely be back and will recommend this to our friends! I am not sure about staying here with kids (ours would need a hotel with other kids and activities) but the room for the kids is fabulous and the pool is excellent!"

  • 3 generations in paradise

    "We have been to St. John many times since our honeymoon in 1999. We have always stayed in a different villa, but Sanctuary was always one we said we would go back to one day. We traveled with our 2 children (13 and 9) and my husbands parents. The Villa did not disappoint. It is still as welcoming and accommodating as it was when we stayed there in 2004. The kitchen and all it's amenities were a highlight of the house! One suggestion I would make is to have a couple beach chairs that are higher off the ground. This would really help out the older people when traveling to the beach. Other than that it was perfect!"
