Recent Magens Bay reviews

  • Just what we needed!

    "This studio fit our needs perfectly, and was in a fabulous location right on the beach in Bolongo Bay. The patio overlooks the outdoor seating area for Mim's Restaurant (a must-do for their Thursday night shrimp feast), which is lovely at night with all the lights and the wonderful water beyond. We were lucky enough to have a full moon during part of our stay, which was spectacular. Our only "complaint," which probably has more to do with the island itself than the condo, is that the water pressure and temperature in the shower were a little unpredictable. Consequently, our showers were much quicker than at home (which is probably a good thing)! But that's a small price to pay for an otherwise excellent stay! The owner was great and she really put a lot of thought into providing amenities and little extras for her guests. Everything from beach chairs, umbrellas, noodles and boogie boards to mini toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Thank you!"

  • The Best Private Beach on Magens Bay.

    "This was our third trip to Villa Eau Claire. We have stayed in the 1 bed 1 bath, 1 bed studio, and now the 2 bed 2 bath units. This time we brought along our two young boys, 6 yrs old & 8yrs old. My mother-in-law & father-in-law stayed in the studio rental. Both the kids as well as my wife's parents enjoyed every single second of our stay. The stunning view from the house is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed snorkeling right along the edge of the rocks where we were able to see a plethora of aquatic life. We ate fresh mango and delicious coconut straight from the property. I have had other family members and friends that have booked at Villa Eau Claire since our most recent stay and it exceeded their expectations as well. The owners are a pleasure to work with! Thank you again for sharing this beautiful location with us. We had a remarkable time and look forward to returning soon!"

  • Cozy Magic Treehouse

    "After some issue with which of the two properties we were staying in, we ended up in Just Enough. The views are amazing, you can even gaze at Coral Bay from the comfort of the shower. The floors in the house are gorgeous, I would love them in my own home. Comfortable bed, great airflow so you do not miss A/C at all. The decks are both great, fun to sit out and watch the little birds eating sugar and lizards in the treetops. Coral bay is close by and there are great places to eat there if you don't feel like using the kitchen or the grill. (we put both to good use) Once you get the roads down, nothing is hard to get to on St. John. The house was a good fit for our little family of 3. While the property itself is great and we do tell everyone that it was a great place to stay, the on-island manager was a little disappointment. She emailed us as we were leaving to tell us the original house we were supposed to stay in of the two properties, we would not be in and she was putting us in Just enough. (the two properties are right next to each other) Instead of meeting us to get us in the property, she sent a "friend", and she also had that "friend" give us his car for the first two days because she double booked the car we rented from her, but chose to tell us it was being repaired. (we saw the people who were in the other cottage using it so we knew it wasn't being repaired it was there when they were and we saw them drive it and they left the keys in it for us when they left.) The "friend" had his own opinions on her and shared them, but he was super helpful anytime we talked to him. We also had an issue the night before we left with the lock box and being as she is nearly impossible to get a hold of, it was a really stressful last night of the vacation waiting on her to make an effort to contact us back. I think, but I can't be sure, but we might have seen the property manager once, but it also might have been the cleaning lady for the other cottage. Also we were there for 9 nights and a refresh of towels would have been nice, they tend to get stinky. All in all the property itself is great, and if you do not need the manager or you have the patience, its a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it for a rather relaxing stay."
