  • Luminaria is amazing!

    "Our family group of seven adults and a 3-moth old baby stayed at Luminaria for two weeks. It was a wonderful experience. First, the house is beautiful--well laid out and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped ( a good thing, because with a baby, we did not eat out). We were even able to watch a little of the NCAA basketball tournament! The living area is very spacious, and gave us plenty of room to watch basketball, read a book, take a nap, or sit in the sun, without getting in each other's way. The pool was lovely, especially for those who had to stay home with the baby while the rest of the group went snorkeling. The driveway is very steep--even with dry weather, you will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle. But that was a worthwhile trade-off to get the amazing views. I can't imagine that many places have views over both Coral Bay and the Drake Passage. We enjoyed watching the boats in the Passage and the sailboats in Coral Bay. The Viva Villa team was great, supplying us with a first-rate greeter (Magabe) and responding quickly to our complaint of the downstairs bathroom drains clogging. The downside of being on top of a mountain is that you have to drive to go anywhere. But we managed to snorkel at least once a day, and even took the baby with us a couple of times. Plenty of shade at Trunk Bay (but get there early), Maho Bay and Francis Bay. We also enjoyed our snorkel-sunset sail with Virgin Magic Charters. We'd come back in a heartbeat if St. John were a little easier to get to."

  • Perfect family getaway!

    "We rented this amazing home for a family reunion and if things could be better than perfect, it was! The entire experience was just wonderful. Each of the bedrooms was fabulous, filled with beautiful touches. And the bathrooms? Straight out of a magazine! The layout of the house itself - amazing views from each room - was conducive to separate family groups. While it was important for us to share the common areas, having our separate bedroom sanctuaries was a very nice thing indeed. Don and his family could not have been more helpful or accommodating. They assisted us in our bookings for transportation, a fishing trip, a chef to cook our Thanksgiving dinner and a day trip over to BVI. It was probably the best , least stressful vacation we have ever had. Everyone was delighted and no one was disappointed. We were a short 10 minute drive to downtown Cruz Bay, with its shops and restaurants. We could snorkel off of our private beach. The pool and hot tub were great. Thank you again Don for being so accommodating and patient with my many questions. We cannot wait to return. We would highly recommend this rental to families."

  • Cozy Magic Treehouse

    "After some issue with which of the two properties we were staying in, we ended up in Just Enough. The views are amazing, you can even gaze at Coral Bay from the comfort of the shower. The floors in the house are gorgeous, I would love them in my own home. Comfortable bed, great airflow so you do not miss A/C at all. The decks are both great, fun to sit out and watch the little birds eating sugar and lizards in the treetops. Coral bay is close by and there are great places to eat there if you don't feel like using the kitchen or the grill. (we put both to good use) Once you get the roads down, nothing is hard to get to on St. John. The house was a good fit for our little family of 3. While the property itself is great and we do tell everyone that it was a great place to stay, the on-island manager was a little disappointment. She emailed us as we were leaving to tell us the original house we were supposed to stay in of the two properties, we would not be in and she was putting us in Just enough. (the two properties are right next to each other) Instead of meeting us to get us in the property, she sent a "friend", and she also had that "friend" give us his car for the first two days because she double booked the car we rented from her, but chose to tell us it was being repaired. (we saw the people who were in the other cottage using it so we knew it wasn't being repaired it was there when they were and we saw them drive it and they left the keys in it for us when they left.) The "friend" had his own opinions on her and shared them, but he was super helpful anytime we talked to him. We also had an issue the night before we left with the lock box and being as she is nearly impossible to get a hold of, it was a really stressful last night of the vacation waiting on her to make an effort to contact us back. I think, but I can't be sure, but we might have seen the property manager once, but it also might have been the cleaning lady for the other cottage. Also we were there for 9 nights and a refresh of towels would have been nice, they tend to get stinky. All in all the property itself is great, and if you do not need the manager or you have the patience, its a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it for a rather relaxing stay."

  • The Hortons

    "Well, another great stay on St.Johns at Villa Mahr. This was our second 2 week stay (we were here about the same time in 2014). We really can't say enough about this home and its owners. The house was in great shape and very comfortable to live in for 2 weeks- clean and well kept. The pool was refreshing and you just never get tired of the beautiful beach's on the island. We hiked to some of the more remote spots on the island this time and experienced some great beach's and views. The view from the porch at the house never gets old. Just an all around great trip. Scott rented us the 4 door pick up truck this trip and that worked out great. The rental has 2 glass bottom 2 man kayaks and they fit on the truck rack. We took them everyday we went to the beach- did some great paddling around the beautiful bays. compliments of the owner. If you are looking for a great place to stay while you enjoy all St johns has to offer - you will not be disappointed with this rental. CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK"
