  • Great Spot!

    "Peaceful Cottages turned out to be a great place to stay. We stayed in the larger of the two cottages and found it the be very comfortable with plenty of living space both indoors and out. Trevor was an excellent host providing great service and information. We were able to book a boat rental through his service and the available "loaner" vehicle was great for getting around the island. It was a pleasure to see his goodwill embassador "Jackie" everyday as well. We stayed for a week and had a great time. We would highly recommend Peaceful Cottages."

  • Great views morning, noon and night

    "We truly enjoyed the stay at Waterlemon. Quite mornings looking out at Coral Bay with a cup of coffee before the kids were up and then again at dinner and into the evening. We saw rainbows just about every morning as the morning showers passed by. The manager and the owner are easy to work with and really nice."

  • Wonderful honeymoon

    "My husband and I decided on SMS for our honeymoon stay and we are so glad we made that decision. We had previously stayed in Cruz Bay when we traveled to the islands before and we wanted to try out the other side. The views from this place are absolutely amazing, the pictures truly don't do it justice. The property manager, Dave, was also great. He met us in coral bay and escorted us up to SMS. He showed us around, gave plenty of recommendations on restaurants, hiking, bays, etc to check out. We woke up the next day to no water, and Dave was there within 10 minutes, and by the time we came back from the day at the beach everything was fixed. SMS is nicely equipped with plenty of kitchen items, beach chairs, coolers, towels, etc, although non-stick pans would be nice as well as a beach umbrella. The pool and hot tub are wonderful, we utilized both often. The drive up to SMS is an adventure, but we had no trouble with our jeep. It's definitely a bit of a drive to get from SMS to Cruz bay, but we didn't mind it. We went a few times during our week for dinner, and the other times we stayed in Coral Bay. There's lots of hiking to explore, we loved Ram Head Trail. We also kayaked to hurricane hole which was beautiful. Overall, our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend SMS! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!"

  • 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."
