  • It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

    "We vacation on St. John as often as possible, normally once a year. This year we were fortunate enough to visit a second time with a group of friends. We selected Villa Carolina for it's view and location. What a fantastic home! It was the perfect size for our group of 7. The outdoor pool deck was the nicest outdoor area we've had at any of the villas we've stayed at to date. From the infinity pool to the comfy deck furniture, we spent a great deal of time soaking up the view, eating meals, drinking coffee and enjoying a late night glass of wine I can't think of a time that we were more relaxed, laughed a ton and truly enjoyed this special place. The three bedrooms are fairly equal with nice furniture and comfy beds. Plenty of drawers and closet space (although I packed really light this trip). The kitchen had just about everything you could want to cook great meals and even though there is a lovely dining room table, we ate all meals around the table and chairs on the pool deck. The living room had a couch, chairs, TV, sound system but we seldom sat in here and only turned on the TV once throughout the week. It was great to have a washer and dryer throughout the week as it allowed me to minimize the amount of clothing I brought along on this visit. While there is a villa slightly up hill to the right, we never heard nor saw anyone all week. Villa Carolina gives you a secluded feeling, yet you are close to all the Coral Bay restaurants and the north shore beaches. For us, Villa Carolina sits in a perfect spot! Sharon, the owner, was a delight to work with and I already know we'll be back to Villa Carolina for another visit. In fact, I wish I was still there. Thanks to Sharon for sharing her beautiful home with us."

  • Beautiful home over looking the water

    "We so enjoyed staying at your beautiful home. Really loved the level parking area. The home itself was really clean. We had iguana visiting us everyday which was really neat. Got some really great pictures of them and the beautiful clear water below. Even saw a shark. Loved being over the water. And having the little grocery store and a place to rent snorkel gear just a minute down the road. Skinny Legs and Shipwreck Landing restaurants were great and right there by the house. We did a lot of grilling at the house and enjoyed eating on the deck watching the sunset. I particularly enjoyed the sunrises every morning between 5 and 530 sitting outside or laying in the hammock watching the day come in. We went out on a snorkel sunset sail with Kiote sails. (Right here in Coral Bay by Skinny Legs). That was such a great time. After that Jimmy the captain would sound his horn every time he would go out again and give us a wave. Enjoyed Maho Beach a lot (great beach for seeing the Sea Turtles) and also visited Little Lamshure Bay and Salt Pond (brought back our own natural sea salt to cook with) plus went out on the Kekoa Catamaran in Cruz Bay. Enjoyed everything! Thanks again so much for opening up your home for us to enjoy. Absolutely enjoyed and so glad we chose Cliffhanger as our vacation spot. Its location is ideal for peace and quiet but within minutes of things you need. One thing worth mentioning. Rent a Jeep on St John if you really want to enjoy seeing the island. You will need it for the steep hills and sharp curves."

  • Our most peaceful visit to the island

    "Our 4th visit to St John and our most peaceful visit yet. We stayed in the studio and loved it! Both Russ and Liz were great! A very hard working couple that were always available if we needed them but we never felt they were intruding.As mentioned in other reviews the cottage has everything that you would need. During our stay Russ completed an upgrade to the water storage and supply for the studio ,which worked wonderfully.Although remote, the cottage is a short walk to the bus stop which stops at Salt Pond Bay and then heads back to Cruz Bay. The buses seem more reliable than in past years, and the price is only $1/per person. If you like to hike ,the cottage is close to several of the most popular trails. Beaches are nearby and Coral Bay has plenty of good choices for dining. We found the cottage to be perfect !! We are planning a trip for next year and hopefully will stay at the cottage/studio again."

  • Absolute perfection!

    "This was our second time staying at Estate Fortsberg and certainly will not be our last. From the moment you arrive, the drive up to the villa is exciting and adventurous! Upon walking in the front door, you start to understand what is going to make your stay exceptional.....the amazing view CANNOT be matched ANYWHERE on the island! The pool/spa is welcoming and encourages everyone to gather and share stories of the day, have great conversations while relaxing or dining al fresco! Cool breezes run through the main house and after a few minutes being there, you realize you may never leave and explore the rest of the island! We had a party of 8 and were all comfortable in each bedroom, in the downstairs hammock or outdoor living area. The outdoor showers are one of my favorite things about the house.. The kitchen was perfect to cook in as you never felt like you were missing out on enjoying the view, because even being behind the stove gives you the best view! The house has all amenities you could want or need. Every morning we would have coffee on the terrace and plan our day which would include a hike, beach, snorkel and lunch at a local restaurant. A few of our favorites are Aqua Bistro, Skinny Legs, Shipwreck and Indigo Grill. The local grocery store next to Aqua Bistro has EVERYTHING you could want or need as well. No need to go far if you run out of something. We would always head back to the villa around 3-4 pm and wonder why we ever left that morning, because it just doesn't get any better than a little music, a cocktail and a swim in the pool overlooking the blue water dotted with sailboats heading in or out of Coral Bay. Sunrise and sunsets are amazing and are worth waking up early for. Star gazing is taken to a new level here, as there are no lights to compete with and you can get a great view of constellations and shooting stars. I could go on and on about this property. Thank you to the owner for sharing this place with the world! Windspree took exceptional care of us from beginning to end, from our initial correspondence, greeting us at the ferry and grocery delivery on our arrival night. We'll be back very soon!"
