Recent Cruz Bay reviews

  • Wonderful experience @ La Colina!

    "This rental property is an older home with beautifully updated bathrooms and kitchen, and very close to all the popular restraunts in Cruz Bay. The home is unique with its stone walls, and generous sized balcony porch with loads of room to gaze out over Great Cruz Bay. The lower level two bedrooms could use some paint and are essentially cut off from the main house amenities requiring outdoor steps to get to main house. But older teens would love the privacy. The upper lever master bedrooms are generous sized, with gorgeous views. It's important to note this is not a neighborhood you can go out and take a safe morning walk. Although traffic was rare, roads are very narrow and only room for one way traffic. We were all lunged at by a imposing black dog on a chain we aptly named Cudjoe, a few doors from the entrance to the community. Another, unleashed (friendlier) pit bull mix followed our friends one morning. Although the master bedrooms are air conditioned, the main living area/dining room was quite warm a few nights, and bugs got in through slits in the screen doors, which need replacing. Also important, the pool is smaller than it appears in pictures. It was a refreshing dip after a day at the beach though, and none of us were up for swimming laps, ha! Each morning, we spent some time cleaning all the leaves and plant debris as it would become dirty. A minor annoyance, I know but still something you don't want to be doing on vacation! There is a pretty, narrow view of the bay but is quite limited by the position of pool and surrounding vegetation. If you love animals, La Colina has a menagerie: a chicken with her 5 little chicks came by for daily visits, several Iguanas came poolside to make an appearance, and every morning deer were spotted grazing below the balcony. Be aware, even though we called well ahead as instructed, we had to wait 15-20 minutes to be picked up by Carribean Villas staff both arriving and leaving. Not fun when you are standing with your luggage, travel-weary and some strange, drunk man kept harassing us and asking us where we were staying, or when the ferry is leaving in 15 minutes. Other than the few aforementioned minor issues, we all loved the home and location."

  • Fantastic by all accounts

    "I really, really enjoyed the location, it was absolutely excellent. Close enough to the downtown / shopping area to enjoy dinner and drinks in 5 minutes but just far away to feel like you are snuggled up on the side of the mountain, all alone, with an out of this world amazing view of Cruz Bay. It's the perfect size for two couples or even a family with children. And while it's surrounded by postcard-esque views, exotic plants and iguanas crawling through the trees, it maintains a coziness / quaintness that makes you feel like you're at home the second you walk through the door. I can't recommend it enough!"

  • Amazing !

    "Good Day ! First off, I really don't even want to post a review, I want this beautiful property to remain a secret, however, everyone must enjoy paradise. I can tell you this, if you don't need a pool and resort life, and you want to feel comfortable, this place is for you. The hosts are great, you couldn't ask for more, Robert was very helpful with everything and anything we needed, the property is on top of the hill, has great views and lovely landscaping. I recommend renting a vehicle if you stay at this property. I would give Robert and his family 10 stars if i could. FYI - I miss that delicious rum cake !!!"

  • Our most memorable family vacation!

    "THE VIEW! THAT POOL! Everything about this Villa is absolutely amazing, but its the view and the pool that takes you away any time of the day. The house is modern, beautifully appointed and has all high end appliances and more cooking supplies than you will ever need! We were a group of 6 adults and 3 young children and the house accommodated everyone with plenty of space and more than enough outdoor seating. Our day trips to the beaches were made easy with beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and ice provided by the villa. The location of this Villa is perfect! Set up on a hill in private residential neighborhood, our time spent at the Villa and by the pool were peaceful and relaxing. Leeward is a quick drive to Cruz Bay and all its action! Not too far from the gorgeous beaches of St. John, which we visited daily, but all roads lead us back to that amazing infinity pool! Relaxing on the floats, drinking while sitting on the in-pool bench or looking out over the infinity edge....blue water for miles disappears into the blue sky! The kids swam for hours, and even danced thanks to the incredible sound system outdoors! In the evenings we'd sip cocktails in the warm air while taking in the view of passing cruise ships! Where else can you see the sun rise and set for the same spot...just perfect! The property management company were a pleasure to work with! They were very helpful and responsive to our questions during our planning stage and even more so once we arrived to the island. I even had several conversations with the home owner leading up to our trip and he was just as helpful! In our conversations you could tell he took such pride in the Leeward Villa! And from the moment we first stepped into the home I could see why! We hope to be back soon and highly recommend this villa for your next vacation!"
