  • ESTATE CONTANT BEATS WESTIN CANEEL BAY HANDS DOWN

    "ESTATE CONTANT BEATS THE WESTIN, & CANEEL BAY HANDS DOWN MAKES MY TOP TEN LIST FOR A GENUINE CARRIBEAN EXPERIENCE The Tenant Estate lodgings by Escape Together--—may not be a big luxury hotel with fancy furniture, and its view may not be as glorious as some (though it comes close). But if you are looking for great hosts, a great place and a genuine Caribbean experience this it! With our hosts guidance, we found ourselves engaging with local people as if we were natives, taking back roads to far towns in quest of adventure, lunching in the most idyllic tropical havens.. I learned from experience that the big name hotels are like a comfort zone with their designer pools, water sports, and welcome bars, but once you enter its hard to escape them except for the obligatory Taxi Ride to Cruz Bay to do officially sanctioned tourist things, or the for an obligatory for dinner or that one trip to the beach. Robert and his Wife’s open, friendly, Caribbean starts to rub off on you from the moment you arrive and show you around the flat. It’s clear from the get go that they have thought of everything, from strong internet connectivity, the sine qua non of any great hotel today, to fans and AC to combat warm air, and from beach chairs, to sun screen, and Off. As you sit on the beautiful porch at Content Estates and stare off a three masted schooner at anchor in the bay below, you find your brain, disconnecting, and your body relaxing from a world where it may be your misfortune to think too hard about just about everything. It dawns on you, "Wow! I am really on vacation." Robert and family, my hosts at Estate Contant helped me realize the best part of a Saint John vacation is not just Pina Coladas, balmy temperatures, turquoise blue waters, but the wonderful people on remarkable island. Robert gave me a great tip for interacting with locals. "Just say, Good morning, Good Afternoon, Good evening to locals and it will make a world of difference. " I did and people consistently responded with great smiles, a helping hand, even hugs! Robert is full of local tips and lore . . . Back roads to far towns, the Fish Ruben in Coral Bay, Hit Maho beach for snorkeling and sea turtles, dinner at Candies Barbecue, a local hangout down the road, One thing is certain I will be back again next year. Couldn’t fit it all in. I wish I had booked in at Escape Together for a week longer. Take my advice, stay here when you come to Saint John"

  • St John's finest

    "Got to stay at Villa St John for two glorious weeks. Great space for group activities, like the gazebo by the pool and the kitchen/dining/living room combo. Also the bedrooms are large and each as it's own bath. There was refrigerator in our room so we could keep things there as needed rather than in the main kitchen refrigerator. There was also space for a blow up bed to add to the flexibilty. Every detail was covered, Highly recommend"

  • FANTASTIC LOCATION, FANTASTIC HOUSE!!!

    "My family and I stayed at this house the last week of June. The weather was perfect! The house afforded privacy for the family and was a great place for entertaining. We spent a lot of time on the decks. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed the pool on the lower deck. The management team in charge of the property could not have been more helpful to us. They made sure we had what we needed and gave us helpful hints on how to navigate throughout the island. It was, by far, the best vacation my family and I have ever had. Thanks to the owners and Henry and Larissa who made our stay relaxing and fun!!!"

  • So Much Space!

    "This place is great! Vida da Mar feels like you’re on your own private island, but you’re only a quick drive to town. The common area in the center of the property has a fully appointed kitchen, living room, and dining room. The common building opens to the pool and deck area, which is huge, has plenty of comfy lounge chairs, umbrellas, and an outdoor dining area. The deck area is right over the ocean, and we were treated to stunning sunsets every evening. Oh, and you can walk right down to the private beach. The private sleeping villas were perfect for our group. I think our villa was larger than my entire apartment. I cannot say enough. The property is right on the ocean, and there is so much space—both indoors and outdoors. Absolutely lovely."
