  • Fantastic family vacation

    "We rented the villa at the last minute- literally the last minute. The owner was fantastic and incredibly responsive on a Saturday to arrange the start our vacation at Eau Claire the next day (Sunday). We brought our 3 year old son, and had an amazing vacation. The pocket beach on the property was easily accessible for our son down the stairs, and the water was warm (even in the morning), shallow, and calm. There were fish, turtles, lizards, and pelicans as constant companions making a great natural environment. It is an easy walk/swim through the water (even carrying a 3 year old) to the larger and mostly unused Little Magen's beach where there is a spot of decent snorkeling off the near side. The location is great for day trips- including to the car ferry terminal to St. John. We stayed in the 2BDR/1BA which has plenty of space, a fantastic deck looking out across the bay, and is well appointed and comfortable. We used the AC sparingly when going to bed, and the screens were very good at keeping out bugs. The laundry on the property was essential and makes packing light feasible."

  • 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!"

  • Sunrise Villa was perfect for our best family vacation ever

    "Sunrise Villa was such a great place to stay for our most awesome family vacation ever! This house is very comfortable, very accommodating and very special. Rosanne and Wayne were perfect property managers, guided us right in and set us up right. Beds were super comfy, kitchen plentiful and lounging areas just right. The image of all those islands (USVIs, BVIs) from the back deck view is still so very fresh in our minds. Place is conveniently located near everything you need too: coolest beaches/snorkeling, various adventures, great restaurants, shops and convenience. Venturing out to far beaches or over to Cruz Bay for a few nights of fun is all very within reach too. If you enjoy getting around this wild and adventurous island you will have no problem with the added driveway thrill up to this paradise in the sky. Oh, and all those stars at night! Thank you Mike, Rosanne and Wayne for a really, really great time. Rob & Carolyn"

  • 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."
