  • Curry Cabin plus Annex

    "We spent a wonderful week at the Curry cabin and its adjoining annex. It was a family reunion of 9 people (2 kids under 10) and 1 dog. The cabin was sweet and rustic,…kitchen fully stocked, beds comfortable, a lovely backyard facing the lake with a nice view of the mountains. We had a problem with the plumbing early in the week which meant that we did not have the use of the downstairs bathroom for two days. Randy was very responsive and the handyman was able to help us out early on our third day there. It was inconvenient but we felt that our concerns were addressed. The lake is quite low and was quite a distance from the house…the area around it was covered with goose poop. This did not make the area conducive for swimming, fishing or using the boats that the cabin offers. That was our choice and Randy was very helpful with suggestions of other places to swim. Since it was a hot week we made good use of his suggestions of a quarry and another, smaller lake. There were no beaches on the lake but the water was refreshing and clean. In the interests of full disclosure…the write up of the house says that there is internet access. This is not actually true. As Randy told us prior to our arriving, you can create your own “hotspot” using your cell phone but we weren’t able to get this to work because of limited cell service. So if internet is important to anyone, be forewarned. Also understand that there are really only two bedrooms in the main house. The loft is an open area overlooking the living room next to the upstairs bedroom. If you add the annex there are three bedrooms plus the loft. The loft was perfect for the kids and their very generous aunt. The cabin is up in the mountains above Ashland…it is a 35-40 minute drive up a very windy, steep mountain road where there are often open road areas right next to a steep drop-off. This was a bit daunting at first but got easier as the week went along. Because there is not much in the way of groceries up on the mountain planning meals at the beginning of the week and really loading up on supplies made our stay less stressful. We really loved the annex…it is right off of the kitchen to the main house and was the perfect place for our family members to find a bit of privacy. All in all the cabin is as advertised…rustic and very adequate for 9 people…we even had an extra bed had we needed it."

  • Luminaria is amazing!

    "Our family group of seven adults and a 3-moth old baby stayed at Luminaria for two weeks. It was a wonderful experience. First, the house is beautiful--well laid out and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped ( a good thing, because with a baby, we did not eat out). We were even able to watch a little of the NCAA basketball tournament! The living area is very spacious, and gave us plenty of room to watch basketball, read a book, take a nap, or sit in the sun, without getting in each other's way. The pool was lovely, especially for those who had to stay home with the baby while the rest of the group went snorkeling. The driveway is very steep--even with dry weather, you will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle. But that was a worthwhile trade-off to get the amazing views. I can't imagine that many places have views over both Coral Bay and the Drake Passage. We enjoyed watching the boats in the Passage and the sailboats in Coral Bay. The Viva Villa team was great, supplying us with a first-rate greeter (Magabe) and responding quickly to our complaint of the downstairs bathroom drains clogging. The downside of being on top of a mountain is that you have to drive to go anywhere. But we managed to snorkel at least once a day, and even took the baby with us a couple of times. Plenty of shade at Trunk Bay (but get there early), Maho Bay and Francis Bay. We also enjoyed our snorkel-sunset sail with Virgin Magic Charters. We'd come back in a heartbeat if St. John were a little easier to get to."

  • Great location/place/price. Couldn't be beat.

    "Darren was a great host, the views of the ocean and sounds of the waves were wonderful. The condo itself was great, it was my wife and I with our 3 month old son, and my in-laws. It was comfortable for all of us to be in there together. Thank Darren!"

  • Perfect!

    "My two girlfriends and I LOVE this cottage! We have stayed many places in our 30+ years of taking bi-yearly getaway trips but this has become our favorite! It's SO peaceful and relaxing in this home. We have rented from Paul before and knew we would be walking into a well-equipped and pristine home. The rental process is completely hassle-free! Paul was so attentive to making sure our stay was enjoyable by recommending local wineries and letting us know we were welcome to use the gas logs as the weather was expected to turn chilly. We can't wait to stay here again next year!"
