  • Our home away from home

    "We first visited the "our villa" 10 years ago for our honeymoon, coming with our two kids (adolescent) and my BFF. 10 years have flown by (and the kids just about grown) and we all came back to celebrate and it felt like we had never left – it felt like our island home. We have only been back to reality 2 days and we constantly are looking back at our pictures and dreaming of being back there -- overlooking the breathtaking view of Coral Bay, hearing the cockadoodle-doo of the roosters and the hee-hawing of the donkeys each morning, and looking up at the crystal clear starry sky every night. It was great (and a money saver) being able to cook our own meals every day, including lunches to take to the beach (the house has dishes and things necessary for cooking as well as many of the minor things like condiments -- we brought additional things with us from home, trying to limit our purchases at the grocery store on St. John to perishables perishables – Starfish Market in Cruz Bay or Love City Market really close to the villa). Since we cooked in for most dinners, we had limited experiences with restaurants, but of course, we went to Skinny Legs, just across from Sea Grape Road, as well as the Tourist Trap (a fun place, like a food truck, on the way back from Lameshur Bay. My BFF and her husband had a good experience at Indigo Grill before we got there. We ran out of time and missed out on Caribbean Oasis which was on our list to try). We loved having beach chairs and towels at our disposal for our daily trips to the various local beaches (our tip -- check the schedule for cruise ships in St. Thomas and save going to Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay for days they are NOT in port - it was great!... Maho Bay is another great one... Waterlemon Bay (via hike) is not as beachy and has great snorkeling, but more of a current to be mindful of; Little Lameshur Bay was also nice and a little secret/privately owned beach on the East End - Hansen Bay that charges a small fee to get in). Having a washing machine and dryer at the house helped immensely, allowing us to pack less, clearing room in our suitcases for the non-perishable food we brought on the way down, and souvenirs and rum to bring home! I'm sure there is so much more I could say, but this is a wonderful place to stay! Charlie and Chris are great to work with and very responsive (and I love how they allowed payment through PayPal!). We hope to book again for our 20th anniversary, if not much sooner!!!"

  • Great Anniversary Vacation on St John

    "We just returned from a fabulous 9 day stay on St John. We've been there twice before and had different accommodations each time. Although they all had great features Larimar had the best combination not the least of which was it's proximity to Cruz Bay. The other condos we stayed at you had to drive to town, which is tricking after visiting some of the wonderful bars and restaurants. From Larimar It was an easy walk to town as it was all down hill. The walk back is a little more difficult as you have to climb a moderate hill. Actually it was great exercise! The condo itself was very nice although slightly over kill for just 2 people. The entire unit was very clean and comfortable, especially the master bed. There were plenty of bath towels (I preferred to air dry) and beach towels (again I air dried) along with great beach chairs. Having coolers was also a huge benefit for the beach. The only minor fault I could find was that the kitchen was small and the refrigerator looked like it should be replaced, although it worked fine. The other thing is that it only had a small George Forman grill on the deck, not the gas grill shown in the pictures. We don't like air conditioners so that wasn't an issue, the ceiling and floor fans kept us cool enough and kept the tiny bugs away. Don't plan on sleeping in as the roosters, peacock and morning doves start making a major racket beginning around 4:30am every morning, actually we experienced those natural noises at the other condos too. It's just part of the experience. Oh yeah, then there was the two construction projects going on at either end of the street that began at 6:45am everyday... can't blame the owners for any of that. When all is said and done, I would highly recommend this place and will definitely considerate for our next visit. Oh yes, Steve was a great guy and a big help and always available if needed. Oh before I forget, someone said it's an easy walk to Solomon/Honeymoon Beach, NOT SO! If you start at the beginning of the trail it's a 30 minute walk and another 15 minutes from the condo. I'm in very good shape but to me the hike isn't worth it. Go to Trunk Bay or Cinnamon Bay those are by far the best beaches. Ok now I'm done."

  • Spectacular

    "Jacqueline cares about her guests and she goes above and beyond to make everyone comfortable. The Villa is very nice and the pool is fantastic. We loved the nice breeze and beautiful views. We didn't need the air conditioner with the three door walls open. The sun does wake you up early but we loved that. The pictures are accurate and the vibe at this place is so pleasant. We were not disappointed in any way and we hope to return. We had dinner on the roof lounge and the view was breathtaking."

  • PERFECT!!

    "My daughter and I just spent two amazing weeks at Bliss for my 50th birthday! The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to the charming town of Cruz Bay. Yes there is a small section of a very steep hill but worth it because of the view! The onsite parking made it so simple. We did not have to think about a thing, the owner and her property management team were so helpful and very easily obtainable...Jill at Cimmeron made us any reservations we needed and was full of good suggestions! The villa is so well appointed and comfortable. Cynthia, the owner, did a wonderful job renovating! We hope to return sometime for sure!!!! Thanks to Cynthia for sharing her wonderful villa!"
