  • Perfect and Picturesque Getaway

    "Our stay at Lameshur Cottages was absolutely perfect for my husband and I and our two teenage daughters. We have stayed in many beautiful resorts but were really looking for something "off the beaten path" and much more laid-back. Although this type of vacationing may not be for everyone, we absolutely loved the very peaceful atmosphere and beautiful views of the mountain that we woke up to every morning. The cottage was adorable and really had everything that we needed and we love that the owners provide everything you need for the beach, including beach towels, chairs, snorkeling gear etc. We do like to kayak but we didn't happen to use the kayak on this trip but will definitely use it the next time back : ) We were very glad that we rented a car because we were able to see so many things all around the island that we wouldn't have if we took public transportation. We did go into Cruz Bay a few times because, of course having teenagers with us, they like a little more "hustle and bustle" but it was so nice to come back to the peaceful cottage. Liz, the owner gave us some very helpful advice on places to go and see. We really enjoyed the local live music at the restaurants in the Coral Bay Area. Aqua Bistro Restaurant was one of our favorites. Liz also suggested Monday open mic night at Café Concordia and that was our favorite evening (great food, atmosphere and such talented musicians)! Thank you again Liz (and Russ...even though we didn't get to meet him in person)"

  • 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."

  • OMG! What a picturesque vacation home!

    "We couldn't believe our eyes when we first arrived (after dark) and saw our vacation accommodation twinkling down the hillside ...one gingerbread cottage after another ...blue, yellow, pink ...connected by stone stairways, porches, railings ...and a turquoise pool at the edge of the cliff. "Is this all ours?!" Many many thanks to Marcia and Georgia for a special home-away-from-home. We appreciated the piles of thick towels, drawers full of kitchen equipment and spices, delightful ceramic dishes, comfy beds, colorful sheets, art & crafts everywhere, jungle bathrooms (couldn't believe the loud tree frogs that serenaded me in the shower), al fresco living/dining/and sleeping, and photo-ops galore. All nine of us are daydreaming about Callaloo, and hoping to return!"
