  • Completely Fabulous Vacation!!!

    "We took a group of 8 on the Freedom and couldn't have been more pleased. The crew was over the top with its hospitality. We were pampered. And the whole crew was very knowledgeable about the islands and history. For a unique vacation experience that is very low stress, you won't find a better value. We took over a year to plan this vacation and it was worth every minute. Our same group did St. Maarten a few years ago on land. It was great, but there's something about being ON the water! Freedom was fabulous!"

  • LOCATION!!! LOCATION!!! LOCATION!!! VIEWS!!! VIEWS!!! VIEWS!!!

    "We absolutely loved Villa Encantada and plan to go back! Our trip included three generations: grandparents, parents and 2 kids, aged 6 and 7, so only 6 people for a 4,500 square feet, extremely spacious and well designed home. We had more than enough space, so we never felt on top of each other or lacked privacy. We could have had two other couples with us and still would have had enough space. The location was absolutely perfect. It was a great base of operation, whether we wanted to go snorkeling (Megan's Bay, Coki Beach), shop or grab the ferry at Red Hook or go sailing. We made numerous trips to the grocery stores (Pueblo's / Fruit Bowl) and food stands for fresh fruits and vegetables and cooked almost every night. The kitchen has every appliance, dish, pot, spoon, etc. needed, so meal preparation was easy. The table for 8 was perfect as well and the open floor plan created a great family area where we were all within eye-sight, but doing our own things. PROS: Location, views, space, amenities, tons of decking, speakers throughout the house and outside, privacy, vegetation, proximity to grocery stores and shopping in Charlotte Amalie, BBQ grill, pool, feeling of safety, washer/dryer, towels, binoculars, blender, dishes, gourmet kitchen, air conditioners in bedrooms, on-site caretaker, wonderful and kind owners, too many to name! CONS: need to label light switches (hee hee), no A/C in the living room (These were not bothersome, but there has to be at least one con in paradise, right?) The grandparents had a really hard time finding the “hidden” driveway. We had to keep reminding them to use Google Maps. This is what I actually liked about the villa – it’s secluded, even though it’s 1200 feet above Charlotte Amalie. Also, please note, there are two listings in VRBO and one shows the villa in Charlotte Amalie, even though the description tells you it’s 1200 feet above it. As a result, there was some confusion about the ability to “walk” to town, but this isn’t really viable. You absolutely need a car. (KEEP LEFT!) You can’t really walk anywhere from the house since the roads are extremely narrow and it’s dangerous and with the hills, it’s practically impossible. I actually liked this, because of the seclusion in the midst of the city. Thanks Bill and Brit for sharing your beautiful home with us! https://www.google.com/maps/place/Villa+Encantada/@18.3542464,-64.9434875,17z/"

  • Perfect place to stay! Will come back again!

    "We had a fantastic stay!! The house was absolutely everything we could need! It was very clean, plenty of amenities, 5 min jeep ride from cruz bay, and had 2 grocery stores about 2 min away. We cooked, packed lunches, even grilled on the deck. The owners who live upstairs are so kind... and made sure we knew they were available if we needed anything. They are very kind and friendly, but were sure to give us privacy. Because of the property location, we needed a jeep rental to get to all of the amazing beaches and to town. No problem at all, we knew this beforehand, and had already reserved a jeep. We will definitely not hesitate to stay here again while visiting St. John!"

  • Adventures in paradise!

    "My husband and I had planned for a long time to share this experience with our whole family. The vacation was all that we hoped it would be and more. The villa and its amenities fulfilled the needs of 11 family members. We appreciated the cleanliness of the villa and the two ladies who came in to clean during the week."
