  • Rest and Renewal!

    "My husband, two adult children, and I spent a week at Villa De Amores to celebrate significant family milestones. We could not have been more pleased. The views from the deck are stunning and the property is very private and quiet. I have stayed closer to Cruz Bay before and there was significantly more noise there. Although the driveway is steep, the property manager guides you the first time, and after that it was not difficult with a 4-wheel drive--even though we were loaded down with gear most of the time. We would have preferred more beach and bath towels as there was only one per person available. Beach chairs and coolers made it easy to pack up for our daily snorkeling trips. We have returned renewed and rested hoping we can one day return to this beautiful island home."

  • Perfect Couples Vacation!

    "The pictures of this beautiful villa do not do it justice! Blue Papaya is perfectly situated in Virgin Grande Estates, which is a quiet, private, gated community in Great Cruz bay over looking the Westin. You are about a 10-15 minute drive to Cruz Bay area and route 10 to famous North Shore beaches. Both Starfish Market and St John Market are on the way to the villa as well. The home had a car port large enough for 2 jeeps and a longer driveway if more car space is needed. Blue Papaya was perfectly laid out for our 3 couples vacation. Walking into the upstairs main living area, there is a large sitting area for game night, dining table, bar area, large up to date kitchen with blender, icemaker in freezer, plenty of cooking utensils, toaster and coffee maker. Connected to the kitchen is a walk in laundry, this is very handy if you are a light packer :) There is a little hall with master suite connected. The porch is AMAZING and had some of the best sunsets I have ever seen on St John. It was perfect for morning coffee, evening "happy hour(s)" and dining. There is master suite in a separate building (but connected) and two master suites at the pool area (one has a beverage center and large sitting area - would be perfect for a family with children) Also a half bath at pool area and a grill. All master suites were equally beautiful, furnished and spacious with plenty of closet and storage space and in room safes. The entire villa has A/C (I was a little surprised since most homes I've stayed in only have A/C in bedrooms). There were plenty of towels including beach towels, coolers and beach chairs. Destination St. John was extremely helpful and quick to respond with all questions, excellent management company! We can't wait to book again for another vacation in paradise!!!!"

  • 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."

  • Incredible view

    "My wife and I stayed at Skyflower for our Honeymoon and had an amazing time. The view looks the same as in the pictures but the real experience is breathtaking. Getting used to no air conditioning on the island was an adventure but the villa is at the top of the mountain where the wind cools."
