  • Amazing Romantic Getaway

    "We had a fabulous trip and can still not stop talking about Balance Villa. Thank you so much for making it available for others to enjoy. We have stayed on St. John twice before (the Westin) so this was our first time renting a house. It was interesting to see how much some things on the island have developed since our last stay in 2003. We also honeymooned there in 1989. As for the house, it is just fabulous! The view is spectacular and the location, Fish Bay, was just perfect. Outside of Cruz Bay just enough but close enough to run into town for dinner, shopping, etc. We both loved the house itself - the layout was perfect, amenities, decor, etc. very much to our taste. The openness with all the doors leading out to the balcony and pool deck were great. We never had to touch the A/C as we had cool breezes every evening. While we did venture out a couple days for beaches and hikes, we spent a lot of time enjoying the villa and the pool. We have been renting vacation homes for many years (25+) in South Carolina, Florida, and more recently Michigan. We have stayed at some nice places and some not so nice places. Balance far exceeded our expectations, and Ann and Marc just seemed to think of everything in terms of amenities, etc. We are already talking about what we want to do next year. If we return to St. John, Balance is a no brainer. I have already recommended to one co-worker."

  • Perfect for our family!

    "Ginger Thomas was everything we expected, and more! Great views in a quiet neighborhood. The house was impeccably clean and had all the amenities. We loved the huge porch for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The layout of the upper floor separate from the downstairs studio worked perfectly for our group. Easy communication with Tara, thank you!"

  • Fabulous Stay with 4 adults 5 kids (ages 5 to 9)

    "This house is wonderful! Perfect location. Perfect view of St. Thomas. We really loved every part of it. The pool is great. The kitchen had everything we needed. The linens and towels were nice. My bed was very comfortable. Was only buggy when the kids left the balcony doors open in their room. The 5 kids loved the playroom - the 4 adults liked that the playroom was separate from the main portion of the house! Each bedroom has a King sized bed and its own bathroom - which makes it the perfect house for 4 couples. The bedroom and bathroom doors are not solid doors they are made of slats. It wasn't a problem but I prefer more privacy from both sides of the door than that. 3 bedrooms are on the second floor and one is on the main floor. (There is another bedroom with a murphy bed off the playroom which does not have a door to the main house. It is not equivalent to the other 4 bedrooms at all.) Two of the bedrooms have an indoor shower and an outdoor shower. The other two have just an outdoor shower. I LOVED the outdoor shower. The house is environmentally friendly with timers on the lights and the a/c. So, if you want the lights or a/c on you have to set a dial. We thought that aspect was great until we went to bed the first night and the a\c in our rooms clicked off after 6 hours (max setting). I generally like to sleep much longer than 6 hours and the room got uncomfortable. It wasn't a big deal just found myself jumping out of bed whenever I woke up in the middle of the night to walk around to the kids rooms to turn the knob so they didn't get hot and wake up early. The music system was nice. I didn't watch one second of tv the entire time I was there so I can't comment on that. But there were tvs in every bedroom, living room and the playroom. The playroom has a bathroom, a bedroom, an air hockey table, pool table and an old school video game thing. There were also lots of comfy looking recliners down there. Beach chairs, snorkel gear for adults, a cooler, pool floats, beach towels for 8 people, extra sheets, a roll of paper towels, more toilet paper than you will be able to use, some laundry detergent, dish soap, garbage bags, a few seasonings, sugar and olive oil were there as well. Coffee pot filters too. The management company, Sol Villas, sent Henry (or Enry as we've been calling him) to greet us and take care of a faulty smoke detector at one point. He was fabulous. I'm very happy and will definitely be back!"

  • An Amazing Stay in Coral Bay!

    "My husband and I stayed at A Slice of Life for a week and could not have asked for a better stay. The Villa has everything you need and more, including beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, a kayak and plenty of items you need to cook most anything. We loved waking up to the beautiful views of Hurricaine Hole and the BVI's. We saw deer in the yard each morning too. The owner made suggestions for his favorite beaches and restaraunts which were all fabulous. Coral Bay is definitely the quiter side of the island which we enjoyed very much, but has plenty of restaraunts less than 5 minutes away and about 25 minutes to the North beaches along a beautiful route. Our first but not our last stay here!"
