  • 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!"

  • A nice family getaway

    "My husband, my daughter, and I stayed in Tree Frog for a week. Pros: The owner and property manager were helpful and easy to communicate with, and the property was as described in the listing. Furnishings are nice and in good shape, attractive decor and good layout. We specifically wanted a place with an indoor vs outdoor staircase since we were traveling with a child- didn't want her traipsing around outside without us if we slept on different floors, and it was perfect. Downstairs bedroom is spacious, and the bed is comfortable. There are lots of beach supplies available for renters to use: several Tommy Bahama beach chairs (the best kind!), coolers, sand toys, etc. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing meals and cocktails. There were also plenty of extra towels and linens if we needed them, also well-stocked toilet paper and paper towels as well as some bathroom items. We appreciated that some of the pantry and toiletry items are left behind from other guests, like condiments, extra sunblock, bug spray, etc. (We've stayed at places where there was NOTHING!) Lots of privacy- no visible neighbors, no noise other than the sounds of nature. Nice view from upstairs balcony- it was cool to watch the birds during the day and especially cool to watch the bats at dusk. Cons: the drive really is rough. It is not for the inexperienced USVI driver. We didn't mind too much because we planned on eating dinner at the cottage every night anyway, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone who plans to eat/drink out then return after dark. We did use the AC downstairs in the bedroom every night... we did not find that the breezes cooled the place enough for the July heat. The patio door opening upstairs lacks a screen, so with it open, the breezes come in, but so do the mosquitoes. Our daughter ended up sleeping downstairs too. There is an AC unit upstairs too, but it didn't seem to do the trick just to cool the place at night. The bathroom was damp and hot 24/7, which came with a gross smell. The towels all smelled a little mildewy. We visit St. John a lot and so we've come to expect these things (you will find the same if not worse at other villas in this price range- TRUST ME!); I only mention it for those who are unfamiliar with St. John rentals. I've heard it's cooler and the AC is not needed at other times of the year, but we've found we need it when we come in late June or July. We enjoyed our trip, and staying at Tree Frog was a good experience."

  • Our second year in a row at Miles Away !

    "My wife and I returned to Miles Away for the second year in a row the first week of May. The House is exactly as advertised in fact id say it is actually better in person than it looks in the pictures. The house is well equipped with everything we needed, Washer, Dryer, Ninja blender, 2 coffee makers, plenty of silverware/ plates/ glasses etc. The Refrigerator has an awesome ice maker that really comes in handy for making frozen drinks to take to the beach like we did everyday. The Master Bedroom is big with a very nice 4 poster bed that is very comfortable. Very nice stone shower in master bath and plenty of nice (and large) bath and beach towels. The house has full A/C which is nice when you get home from the hot beach days, of course we also took great advantage of the nice pool outside. The house is at the end of a residential road so it is very private. The pool itself is bordered by a beautiful stone wall with flowers surrounding the top of it. We appreciated small things like the many outlets in key places for charging phones/ ipads etc....we've stayed in houses where this it not the case and it can be annoying. The cable and Wi-Fi at Miles away work very well which is not always the case on St John The house has nice flat screen TVs in the main room and master bedroom). Besides the house itself we have had the pleasure the last 2 years of dealing with Mark Miller who is the owners Property Manager. He could not have made the process any easier. Not only were we able to leave our things at the house early in the day prior to check in time but we were also given an awesome welcome basket from Sam and Jack's deli, which is a very nice place on the island. As return guests we certainly didn't expect to get another one this year. Mark was always quick to respond to any questions we may have had during our visit. Overall I would highly recommend Miles Away to anyone looking for a very nice villa in a great location at a reasonable price. I was actually a little hesitant to write this because I selfishly don't want it to become too popular!"

  • Fantastic!!!!

    "This villa is stunning, accessible, affordable, and a perfect opportunity to have a home base while staying on saint john. There is a grocery store that suited all of our needs located literally one minute from the villa that has alcohol, produce, meat, and a lot of other provisions. The villa is exactly as advertised and even better than the pics show. Angelo, the owner, was extremely helpful and responsive all the way up to our arrival. His assistant, Kay, met us right at the ferry dock, walked us to our jeep rental (which by the way was Delbert Hill car rental provided through Angelo and was fantastic also). Kay was incredibly nice and knowledgeable and so welcoming. The villa met all of our needs, had a reasonably stocked kitchen and a barbeque grill. Just an overall awesome villa and experience."
