  • 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."

  • The Hortons

    "Well, another great stay on St.Johns at Villa Mahr. This was our second 2 week stay (we were here about the same time in 2014). We really can't say enough about this home and its owners. The house was in great shape and very comfortable to live in for 2 weeks- clean and well kept. The pool was refreshing and you just never get tired of the beautiful beach's on the island. We hiked to some of the more remote spots on the island this time and experienced some great beach's and views. The view from the porch at the house never gets old. Just an all around great trip. Scott rented us the 4 door pick up truck this trip and that worked out great. The rental has 2 glass bottom 2 man kayaks and they fit on the truck rack. We took them everyday we went to the beach- did some great paddling around the beautiful bays. compliments of the owner. If you are looking for a great place to stay while you enjoy all St johns has to offer - you will not be disappointed with this rental. CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK"

  • Fun family retreat!

    "We loved staying at the cottage for 10 days with our boys, ages 8 and 11. The setup allowed us to have some relaxed family time at the cabin, enjoying the natural surroundings, playing cards, even watching a movie. The location is easily accessible (via rented Jeep) to all of our old favorite beaches as well as some new favorites we discovered this trip. The kitchen was easy to use and the beds were comfy; the weather on the mountain is comfortable for sleeping. It was great to be able to turn on the row of white lights that lead up the path to light our way home if we went out for dinner. We loved the Maho Bay camps, but enjoyed staying here more in many ways-- hot shower, functioning kitchen, and comfortable beds made this a great retreat, with a close to nature feel; loved hearing frogs and birds, as well as cicadas at night. The only thing we'd improve is that it was difficult to get our snorkeling gear and swimsuits to dry on the clothesline-- there isn't a sunny area to hang them. Things dried better when brought inside overnight. We learned from Viki about the Laundrymat outside Cruz Bay, we brought laundry there halfway through and they washed, dried and folded our clothes for a fair rate while we had fun. The hosts' friendly and helpful but not intrusive style was perfect for us. We'd love to come back!"

  • Incredible view

    "My wife and I stayed at Skyflower for our Honeymoon and had an amazing time. The view looks the same as in the pictures but the real experience is breathtaking. Getting used to no air conditioning on the island was an adventure but the villa is at the top of the mountain where the wind cools."
