  • Lovely Place. Missing Sea Spirit already.

    "We had a wonderful time at Sea Spirit. The place is very remote and you definitely need a 4-wheel drive, but that it what we were looking for. The view off the deck is absolutely amazing. There are 2 bays on either side of the cottage that you can walk to. There is usually not a sole at either one. The snorkeling at these bays, and directly in front of the cottage, was the best on the island, in our opinion. We also loved driving a couple miles down the main road (which turns into a very bumpy dirt road) to Lameshur Beach. It was always un-crowded and gorgeous. The restaurants/bars we enjoyed most on the island were The Beach Bar in Cruz Bay and Skinny Legs in Coral Bay. The cottage itself was small, but met all our needs. We appreciated that there was a cooler and beach chairs that we could haul with us while exploring the island. The landscaping around the cottage was beautiful. We cannot wait to go back and would not want to stay anywhere else on the island as this spot is perfect."

  • Gorgeous House with Amazing Views

    "Two families spent a fantastic week at Villa Ixora. We loved every aspect of the house - and it's prettier in person than in pictures. There is plenty of room and the layout is perfect, especially when traveling with more than one family. Loved that the kitchen and great room are in their own building. The location of the house is fantastic - great views, amazing breezes and easy access to everywhere on the island. James met us at the Ferry and led us to the house. Can't wait to visit again!"

  • Amazing views and convenience

    "We stayed at the treehouse from april 22nd - April 28th 2016. It was amazing in all aspects. The house has BREATHTAKING views and is close to everything due to its central location. The nights were perfect in the bedroom off the main deck. Gentle winds all night kept us comfortable and we have never slept better. The owners were more than accommodating and provided almost everything we needed to have a care free vacation. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a St. John rental. Thanks so much for helping us have the best vacation ever!!!"

  • Great Views, Comfortable Villa for 5-6

    "The views from the main living room and deck/pool/hot tub area are amazing. You get an incredible panorama of Coral Bay, East End, and Norman Island to the east, and Jost Van Dyke to the north. The large pool and hot tub were wonderful--a great way to relax at the end of the day. Beds were comfortable, showers were good (with just enough hot water), and the property managers left a stocked fridge, including chocolates, as we arrived on the Saturday before Easter. They also left plenty of towels, soap, and shampoo/conditioner. The villa was clean and comfortable, though the decor is a little dated. Parking off of Centerline Rd. was easy--it's not one of those crazy hidden driveways with a steep drop, you don't have to go off-roading for 10 minutes, and there's plenty of room to maneuver a large Jeep. Overall, my wife, son, mom, and brother had a really great time. We've stayed on St. John several times, and this has to be the best location we've ever had. Close to the north shore beaches and Coral Bay. Not too far from Cruz Bay, and walking distance to Colombo's Smoothies. My only complaint about the villa's location on its ridge would be the wind, which howled most of the day and night during our 6-day stay. I think it was partly just a particularly windy week on the island. But it's definitely windier at the villa, as there's nothing to block the tradewinds. Finally, my only complaint about the property management is a minor one--the DVD players didn't work. The one downstairs had no connecting cable at all, and the one upstairs had the wrong type of cable. When I tried to get them to address it, they were responsive, but never actually came out and fixed it. Maybe it's harder to get the right kind of cable on the island. Not a big deal, obviously, but they could have done better. But overall, a terrific villa for the price, particularly if, like me, your priorities are great views, good location, a pool, and a hot tub."
