Recent USVI/St. John reviews

  • A great find

    "A clean condo with comfortable beds and couches. Wifi, a satellite, TV and A/C and in both rooms and in the family room too. There are beach chairs (4), bathroom towels and beach towels as well as a bathroom with a tub. A balcony with a gas grill on the table and a view of Cruz Bay. Charles and Marlita great host and responded promptly for our requests for batteries for the A/C remotes and when we ran low on running water. Charles even showed up one day without being contacted and refilled the water, I would have liked mixing bowls, measuring cups and measuring spoons, better pots and pans, a few more bowls and more light in the kitchen. Even so, would stay there again because of the great rate and Charles & Marlita."

  • 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!"

  • Amazing view on the water

    "We just got back from Ocean Palm. I highly recommend working with St John Ultimate Villas. The staff there was so amazing to work with. Response time was immediate and answered all of my questions promptly and accurately. I was not disappointed in the customer service. This property is bank owned and does show some wear. However, do not hesitate to stay. Some appliances need work, some things are rusty. The rooms are fabulous - huge and nicely decorated. A/C works in all areas. Huge grill a plus. The view is like none other. Right on the water. You can listen to the waves 24/7. It is a coral beach so you can't lie out on it but you don't need to Salt Pond is 2 minutes away and Trunk/Cinnamon/Maho a 15 minute drive. plenty of pots/pans/dishes/containers in the kitchen for cooking - everything you need. plenty of towels for beach and every day use. some inner tubes and we left behind a raft. Just be careful of the outdoor chairs. The salt air rusted some of the legs on a few chairs but there are so many chairs you can just put those aside and still have plenty to spare. Everyone will have enough privacy as they want. plenty of room for everyone. You will absolutely enjoy your stay here."
