  • Nice stay at Riley's Retreat and Best Family Vacation Ever!!

    "I started planning our family trip to St. John a year before we went, and can't tell you how many rental properties I looked at. Something made me always come back to Riley's Retreat. I am glad I followed my gut as it was a fantastic property to rent for the week for our family of four (kids age 12 & 15) as well as for our friends and their 2 children (10 & 13). The construction of the home is beautiful and had so many wonderful touches from the outdoor shower, & laundry facility, to the beautiful salt water pool and hot tub, which were used constantly. Also available were beach chairs, snorkeling equipment (we brought our own but our friends did not so it was helpful to them) A must when visiting St. John. We appreciated that there was very nice bedding and towels and the pillows and beds were very comfy. The master closet needs a good cleaning (dusty and got our clothes dirty) and repairs to the shelves (falling off or missing). The kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed. We took advantage of grilling a few nights and even had another family who were traveling at the same time come over for a cook out. There was plenty of room for entertaining and the pool table was a treat for everyone. Ellis and Rebecca were a lovely couple that live in the cottage on the property and manage it, they were helpful when picking us up at the ferry and with grill and dryer issues. Having two washers was a plus, but only one working dryer was a challenge with 2 families, daily visits to the beach, washing towels, etc. The lower level was occupied by our friends and they did mention that the kitchen was not well stocked and the beds were not as comfortable as we experienced. My only complaint was the noise coming from the road, which is very heavily traveled by a lot of cars and water trucks (who beep when coming around a sharp corner). I was happy to be close to town as it was our first visit and it made for very easy travel back and forth. My husband says it was authentic to hear the roosters and the cars, I found it difficult to relax & take in the amazing views. We had massages set up at the house and would have liked them on the deck but for the noise. We opted for the living room which worked well. Heidi, the owner was very helpful in having a fruit basket prepared for our friends and in recommending great restaurants. Overall, our stay was very comfortable. We would definitely come back!"

  • Stunning Views!!

    "My family's stay at The Mandavilla was just wonderful! Tara and James were great and very helpful before and during our stay. They live on the island and had lots of info about what to do and where to go. The house was beautiful an very comfortable for my family (five adults). I just can't say enough about the extra large deck and the spectacular views!!! So amazing!!! I also really liked that Tara and James provide everything you need for a day at the beach: towels, chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, and noodles. I highly recommend this house and can't wait to go back!"

  • Oh my god!

    "The title says it all. Mom, 18 year old son and 20 year old son with girl friend stayed for a week. Accommodations could not have been better. The place is stocked with everything you could possible need. The views are out of this world! Just like the pictures even better. Charlie is one of the nicest people you could meet and his wife is very responsive to the booking process. Charlie some how you got the better half of the deal! Coral Bay is where you want to be for relaxation and the restaurants there are top notch. Enjoyed every minute of our time there and look forward to coming back. Thank you for sharing your home with our family."
