  • Beautiful Home Perfect Vacation

    "We spent 11 days in this beautiful home on our first trip to the Virgin Islands. Sopra Mare is absolutely beautiful. Mulley certainly knows how to build them. The views from all rooms is picture perfect. The house has everything you need from beach chairs and coolers for a great day on the beach, to all the kitchen appliances to fix a great meal. We spent dinners out but also cooked a bunch on the grill and enjoyed lots of time chilling in the pool. Wi-Fi worked great so it was nice to plug into the Bose speaker and listen to music and relax on the balcony with a glass of wine. Our kids really enjoyed the home and missed nothing from home. AC at night in the bedrooms was nice, but the evening with all the doors opened and the breeze from the ocean made you really feel the Island life. Mulley was great in responding to any questions we had prior to our trip, and had some great suggestions. Reading his blog was a great way to plan a few beach days. All recommendations were fantastic. We will be back Mulley, and thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. oh and remember KEEP LEFT!!"

  • Great stay above Coral Bay!

    "My wife and I had an excellent week at Giovanna's in Calabash Boom. We drank coffee from the deck every morning, the amazing views of St. John's east end and the BVI beyond were worth the trip alone. We've been to St. John a number of times, but this was the first time we have rented a house. We were really pleased with the choice. It was convenient to all our favorite spots on the Coral Bay side of the island and had everything you would need for a week in the tropics. The Calabash market it almost just below it on the main road, and it is convenient to many of the other Coral Bay establishments. Thanks Antonette!"

  • Couldn't have Been Any Better

    "I could not believe all the reviews since they were ALL great - but now I know. Areca is a beautiful place that is accurately portrayed in the description. House was immaculate and decorations and overall feel were very nice and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with spices, sharp knives and many different types of pots and pans and utensils. And I cook a lot so this was very important to me! The pantry had extra paper products and towels and various other items. The house was also very baby friendly. We had 4 couples and a 2 1/2 year old, 1 year old, and 4 month old. We blocked off the stairs to the upper bedrooms - and all was fine! All the doors locked for safety and even the screen doors could be bolted into the floor and ceiling. The outside railing was child friendly as well! We ran into a couple very small issues (which switch works what and broken fan/light chains) and Diana arrived first thing the next morning and handled them all quickly. Also, we had questions off and on during the weeks leading up to our vacation and Diana answered them all very quickly. The outdoor areas were wonderful with plenty of seating and fans and lighting as well. The pool was very nice and clean! Everyone said the beds were very comfortable and the rooms nice and cool. The only thing we ran into was the baby monitors being used upstairs would be blocked by all the stone and not transmit to the downstairs. Not overly important fur us since the upstairs baby was still unable to climb out of the pack and play. We have been to St. John many times over the years and stayed in many different villas. The view from Areca is by far the most majestic. You can see the sunrise and sunset without ever having the sun blazing directly onto any of the outdoor sitting areas. Johnson's Reef sits right out front and it is amazing to watch as the day goes by. Much better than a TV! You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay at Areca!"

  • What a great place!!

    "If your coming to St. John and want the best view, home and accessories....WaterCliff is definitely your destination. Best home layout we've rented in St. John. Private and perfect for family or group. It's so close to Cruz Bay and the property is very secure. The pool was wonderful and the home is situated high on the edge of the cliff for perfect views and great trade winds everyday. If you have the chance to stay here, do it!!! DL"
