  • We love banana cabana

    "We loved staying at banana cabana! So peaceful, clean and relaxing, great location! We enjoyed our family time! Not ideal for young children unless you want to share a room with them. Ideal for a family of 4 with kids a little more independent, privacy and great common space too. We hope to stay there again!"

  • A nice family getaway

    "My husband, my daughter, and I stayed in Tree Frog for a week. Pros: The owner and property manager were helpful and easy to communicate with, and the property was as described in the listing. Furnishings are nice and in good shape, attractive decor and good layout. We specifically wanted a place with an indoor vs outdoor staircase since we were traveling with a child- didn't want her traipsing around outside without us if we slept on different floors, and it was perfect. Downstairs bedroom is spacious, and the bed is comfortable. There are lots of beach supplies available for renters to use: several Tommy Bahama beach chairs (the best kind!), coolers, sand toys, etc. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing meals and cocktails. There were also plenty of extra towels and linens if we needed them, also well-stocked toilet paper and paper towels as well as some bathroom items. We appreciated that some of the pantry and toiletry items are left behind from other guests, like condiments, extra sunblock, bug spray, etc. (We've stayed at places where there was NOTHING!) Lots of privacy- no visible neighbors, no noise other than the sounds of nature. Nice view from upstairs balcony- it was cool to watch the birds during the day and especially cool to watch the bats at dusk. Cons: the drive really is rough. It is not for the inexperienced USVI driver. We didn't mind too much because we planned on eating dinner at the cottage every night anyway, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone who plans to eat/drink out then return after dark. We did use the AC downstairs in the bedroom every night... we did not find that the breezes cooled the place enough for the July heat. The patio door opening upstairs lacks a screen, so with it open, the breezes come in, but so do the mosquitoes. Our daughter ended up sleeping downstairs too. There is an AC unit upstairs too, but it didn't seem to do the trick just to cool the place at night. The bathroom was damp and hot 24/7, which came with a gross smell. The towels all smelled a little mildewy. We visit St. John a lot and so we've come to expect these things (you will find the same if not worse at other villas in this price range- TRUST ME!); I only mention it for those who are unfamiliar with St. John rentals. I've heard it's cooler and the AC is not needed at other times of the year, but we've found we need it when we come in late June or July. We enjoyed our trip, and staying at Tree Frog was a good experience."

  • Early December Stay

    "This was our first time renting White Cottage on St. John. We have been renting villas for many years on the island along with semi annual stays at Caneel Bay. It really is a nice house in a great location very private and not too far from Cruz Bay. There are four large private masters all with King beds we invited 2 other couples for the week and had plenty of space. The kitchen has every thing you need to prepare meals and plenty of serving platters etc often missing on other properties. The house has a laundry with brand new top of the line washer dryer so no need to over pack your suitcase. The pool is small and in a bit of a precarious location between the main house and a up stairs bedroom suite. The management company Destination St. John in my opinion is the best on the island we expect top notch service and always receive it. From the pick up at the ferry dock to the gourmet lunch basket in the fridge they make sure every thing is perfect for your stay. White Cottage is an excellent choice for a property in this price range and we would consider returning."

  • 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"
