Recent USVI/Great St. James Island reviews

  • 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."

  • Breathtaking Views, Great Accomodations

    "We loved our stay Casa Blanca. The views are breathtaking, the pool was divine, location is excellent, and the house was very clean. The house is located close to the Marriott and a 2 minute drive to a nice public that had food, volleyball court, and water sport rentals. It was also a quick drive (less than 10 minutes) to grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. As for the property, the kitchen was nicely equipped, and making it easy to cook. The owner had almost everything you'd need for the beach; towels, coolers, etc. The bedrooms were spacious and each had its own full bath. My kids enjoyed walking around the property looking at the fruit trees, relaxing in the hammock, and sitting at the table overlooking the magnificent views of the water while doing homework. The owner was helpful, answered all of my questions, and gave suggestions. We have rented numerous homes from these websites and this owner was hands down the best we have ever had. We truly felt at home. I would highly recommend renting this house!"

  • Purposefully Peaceful

    "My wife and I enjoyed the coziness of the cottage for 5 nights and fell in love with our perch above the most amazing view to the entrance into Coral Bay and Hurricane Hole. I was a little intimidated about traveling during "hurricane" season but honestly the slow time on the island was wonderfully quiet. We had only one day of intermittent rain while on the island and beautiful weather otherwise. If you are uncertain about St John as your destination I have to say it is now our favorite vacation location. You must experience it with your own senses to appreciate all it offers. There is something for everyone at St John. Quietness with nature, history in the ruins, beauty found not just in the pristine clear water beaches and reefs but also the miles of hiking trails, culture of the locals, shopping and night life, and restaurants with a taste of food for everyone. Being a guest at House of Open Arms was unlike no other experience we had on a vacation. We enjoy being around other people when we want too and we had plenty of time while on beaches, shopping, or restaurants. However if you want to be secluded and alone then the villa is the perfect place to be off the beaten tourist path. Catherine is a wonderful host and sincerely desires to see you have a wonderful experience and not just a place to stay while on the island. Catherine personally meeting us, and providing a very delicious meal on our first night demonstrated this. Catherine truly loves seeing guests enjoy the cottage, villa and the island. We were blessed meeting Catherine and experiencing her passion and vision for the House of Open Arms. Quotes I never thought I would hear from my wife, "I love the outside shower. No one can see us out here", "I like doing dishes.... with sunglasses on", "what day is it?" I will never forget the time we spent together here."
