  • Wonderful vacation!

    "Our group of 3 couples and one single just returned from our 10-day vacation on St. John. Sinbad welcomed us at the ferry, escorted us to the house and gave us a complete tour. Each of the 4 BR's has its own private entrance, bath with shower, a/c as well as a private decks with seating to enjoy the exceptional views. The communal area has a full kitchen, large dining table for 8, TV, fast wifi, bar, and ceiling fans. The large main deck has a very nice gas grill, more outdoor seating and another dining table. The pool was cool with plenty of seating to nap or sunbathe. There are so many extras provided by the host. Coolers, beach chairs, towels, pool floats, and ample recommendations for activities. Most activities are about 10-15 minutes away by car. Taxis are no problem. Private chefs and cleaning services are available. The water is filtered and tastes great. The bedrooms have reading lamps and plenty of closet space. There is ambient lighting by the pool and in the main living area. We loved watching the many iguana's, gecko's and birds that frequent the property. The property is lovely, great location up on the hill to catch the breezes and enjoy the views, the owner could not have been more helpful and Sinbad is a phone call away although we had no reason to call."

  • Great experience and amazing views

    "This was our first trip to St. John and friends that had been before insisted we spend the week there rather than St. Thomas, they were right! With around 4,000 people on St. John (vs 55,000 on St. Thomas) we made the right call to enjoy our vacation there! It is extremely laid back and relaxing with great people! Cruz bay at night is a must! The arrival and greeting was great! We were meet at the ferry and taken to St. John Rentals. After this we were guided to the house and after one trip it was easy to find on our own and took only about 15 minutes to arrive there from Cruz Bay. Michael went above in making us feel welcome, he even helped me in handling a flat tire issue so it was quickly resolved! We only had a few questions as Michael provided great detail with documents and answered many questions via email before our arrival. The property is very well kept and the amenities are great. Our view was simply fantastic, the pictures of the property cannot do it justice! We overlooked Fish bay and had a huge range of view such that we could see much of that side of the island. At night you could leave the doors open and use the screens provided to hear the waves and enjoy the night air without seeing all the city lights as those are all hidden. We always had a great amount of privacy at the house and had everything we could think of included in the rental. Air conditioning was included, many places do not have this. The pool was well kept with a great view of the bay. A very comfortable huge king size bed was also provided. The refrigerator (with freezer for ice) was a perfect size to hold cold drinks and food for breakfast/lunch. The bathroom was huge and the shower has a great view of the bay. Towels, beach chairs and two coolers are provided also which were a great help in our daily travels. You will not need an umbrella as the beaches almost all have natural shade from trees. Overall the unit is amazing and once you stay there I believe you will also agree. After being on the island for 7 days and and seeing many of the other units we looked at up close I can see we made a great decision to stay with Michael. If we would have chosen one of the other locations I feel we would have been let down and not enjoyed our stay as much. After staying here it is easy to see why he has so many return guests. If you visit St. John you owe it to yourself to have a great place and an amazing view, this is it!"

  • Slice of Paradise

    "Our trip to St. John as always was exceptional. This home is perched next to the ocean with a nice view and close the Cruz Bay. Home is appointed very well with interesting decor and very comfortable beds. The bedrooms provide privacy for all as they are situated in the corners on the top and bottom levels. The salt water pool was great and always clean. Kitchen works well for large groups. We used the outside steps to access the bottom bedrooms as the spiral staircases down to these bedrooms are tight and noisy for those that are already sleeping or sleeping in. I would highly recommend this property to anyone whom is looking for a home to rent on the island of St. John. One last comment; the management company response and solutions were fantastic."

  • Paradise

    "My family recently returned from a week in this lovely home perched high above Chocolate Hole and Rendezvous Bay in St. John and it truly was paradise. The home is lovely -- very airy and wood everywhere, which made it seem almost like you were in Bali. In the evenings the sunsets are directly in front of you and are spectacular, and then as the sun goes down (& until almost mid-day the next day, when the sun makes it over the higher points surrounding the back of the house) the elevation brings in a very pleasant cool breeze. The home is divided into upper and lower sections, each having its own kitchen (although the lower section kitchen is small) and this is also a great way to divide space (or get rid of kids!). The location is close to Cruz Bay, so getting into town for restaurants, supplies etc is easy -- but the location also offers a quick escape to the beaches we prefer on the Eastern (opposite) end of St. John. We have been coming to St John for 25 years and this was our favorite house, no doubt about it. It is Paradise in Paradise."
