  • Fantastic Stay

    "We had a group of 8 (7 adults and a 12 year old). The house was just as described and was very clean. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us. The deck is large and the view is amazing. The kitchen was equipped with the all the necessities. The water comes from a cistern so you cannot use it for drinking or making coffee. Stock up on gallons of bottled water. Teeth brushing with it is fine. The water wasn't a big deal at all. Dawn was very responsive from when we first booked until when we left. She was friendly, informative and quick to respond. Like most houses on the island, there is only air conditioning in the 2 bedrooms. There are plenty of screen sliding doors for a good cross breeze. The loft rooms have windows, ceiling fans and extra floor fans to keep cool. The loft would not be ideal for smaller children. The stairs are steep and you have to use caution. Once up in the lofts, they are very roomy. We ended up moving our son into the master bedroom with us. We just took a twin mattress from the loft and put it on the bedroom floor. If you have younger ones, you can probably fit 2 twins on the floor of each master. There are two full baths but they are in each of the master bedrooms, so anyone not in a master must come through to use them. None of this was a big deal but just wanted to make note of it. If you go to the beach there are tons of items available at the house for you: beach chairs, coolers, some snorkeling gear, sand buckets, toys and beach towels. The house really had everything we needed. The internet worked pretty well. If it was cloudy or the wind was blowing a little hard, you could have a hard time getting service for a little bit. Nothing to do with the service at the house...just how it goes on the island in general. Everything was very nice and we made a lot of great memories. We were with someone who used to live on the island so we did a lot of traveling around the island, but Dawn will give you tons of ideas if you have never been there before. There are many amazing beaches. The only caution are the roads. They drive on the left and the roads are very narrow, go up, down and around. Many driveways and some roads are pretty steep at times so get a vehicle with 4 wheel drive if possible. The driveway at this house is also steep, but we ended up parking towards the top since we had a mini van. No way it would make it up and down. We just improvised, but you do a lot of that with island living."

  • The Reilly's loved Riley's

    "MY family really enjoyed our stay at Riley's retreat. We really appreciate the kindness the owner's have shown in letting us stay. The home sleeps 10 comfortably with AC bedrooms in a safe and private location. The views from the balconies overlooking Cruz Bay were so beautiful that at times my family had trouble mobilizing to leave and go to the beach. No one wanted to leave. The poolside and hot tub which were surrounded by the most beautiful landscaping were a nice touch to relax in after a long day in the sun. There is a short drive to town and all of the most beautiful beaches you've ever seen. They also have a really great kitchen with all needed appliances. Perfect for a family trip or a girl's vacation."

  • Excellent Choice

    "This property was very clean and well maintained inside and out. The location was perfect... 5 minutes to downtown for dining & shopping. My family really enjoyed the island and strongly recommend this property for guests needing 2 bedrooms. I can't say enough good things about our entire experience on the island and it all started and ended with this property. It was a great choice. We will definitely be back to St John and we will be sure to contact John & Denise for our rental needs. They were very eager to help and always pointed us in the right direction for anything we inquired about. Eric & Tracy Smith - Aledo TX - 4th of July Week -"

  • Great Condo!

    "Our family of five stayed at Southern Serenity back in Sept. (a great time to go) and loved it. The unit itself was great and the location could not be beat. Views were great and had a short walk to the Beach Bar. Didn't realize how much time we saved by not having to find a parking place. Unit was furnished great but I understand they have some new furniture arriving in late fall. St John Villa management was great also. Hope we can stay there again, may have to reserve two of the Blair's condos if we all can't fit in Southern Serenity. By the way views from this unit were fantastic."
