  • Beautiful villa high above Coral Bay

    "This beautiful villa was the perfect place for our family vacation: grandparents, parents, teenagers and older kids. The house is so thoughtfully designed and appointed, with lots of space for everyone to spread out to sleep or to gather together to enjoy each other's company. We rented jeeps (don't come to Coral Bay if you can't handle driving on some rough roads) and spent our days swimming and snorkeling at nearby Maho Bay, Francis Bay, and Cinnamon Bay and hiking the island's trails. We all looked forward to coming back to the villa to relax, gaze at the vistas or the stars, and make meals together. The home's caretakers were responsive and helpful, and have thought of every detail. We hope we'll be back!"

  • Beautifully appointed property

    "We stayed at Sea Palace for a week. Greg was very easy to work with and very responsive to requests. The house is beautifully designed and appointed with everything you might need. We cooked most meals on the grill and the kitchen was great to work in. We took advantage of everything the villa had to offer. Greg even let us use the hottub next door since no one was in that property during the week we were there. The rum tasting bar was great, I tried the Black strap rum which I liked as a floater on top of my painkiller. Everything worked well. Nice selection of DVDs and Netflix was available on the TV (we don't go much out in the evenings). A/C worked great for the whole floor if you need it. Plenty of beach towels, bath towels and so much space. Almost too much for just the two of us, this is really perfect for two couples traveling together. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

  • Five stars (Excellent) does not seem adequate for this house and its locale: A new VRBO category?

    "My wife and I returned a week ago after ten days at Bob's incredible place in early March 2017. The other reviewers did a great job at capturing the highlights, but as someone who has rented spaces in the Caribbean islands countless times in the past forty years, my context focuses on Bob's peerless attentiveness to lovely and comfortable furnishings inside and out, handsome interior architecture and paint palettes, superior quality linens and towels, and, perhaps the best-equipped kitchen I've encountered in an island rental property, right down to the six matching high-end wine glasses and a corkscrew that is far better than the one we own at home. Once you actually experience how remote this property is, one can only wonder at the level of effort and care Bob put into this place, perched under a stone cliff overlooking nothing but the BVI's and an endless chorus of incoming waves and trade winds. This is no ordinary Caribbean rental, for certain, and when you factor in the loving extra personal touches that Bob brought to bear, I could certainly make a reasonable case that the good people at VRBO should create a new category, maybe called "Five Stars Plus" for exceptional situations like this one. This review also needs to include the property managers who could not have been more helpful at every turn, including guiding us to Bob's house at dark on our arrival and whose friendship was part of an experience that we will never forget. We have already sent Bob a deposit for 2018!"

  • Home away from home

    "My wife and I have never rented the same villa twice. That is, until now. We were so impressed with the quality of this villa, and the generosity of the owner and property manager, we have already booked Villa South Palm for next year. The location, view, furnishings, A/C, appliances and layout of this villa are top-notch. We have travelled to St. John 13 times since January of 2000, and rented a villa in various locations throughout the island. But, Villa South Palm has been the most comfortable and convenient so far."
