Island Stones is a Villa out of a story book. There were 12 of us, ranging in age from 32-61 and we all agree our stay in this Villa was like a dream come true. From the views, to the amenities, to the attention to our requests. During our stay we asked for beach chairs, snorkel equipment a couple repairs all were delivered or completed within hours of our request. Henry, who is in charge of maintenance, truly did everything possible to make our visit to Island Stones as comfortable as possible. And he succeeded!
This trip was in celebration of mine and my husbands 10 year anniversary. We were married on St. John and most of this same group was with us in 2004 and although the villa we rented then was also stupendous, Island Stones wins the prize. We have always done all of our own shopping and cooking during these trips. Island Stones made this an easy task for 12. The veranda and the bar area is such a wonderful place for gathering and just having fun. The Wifi was great, we were able to hook up our Iphones, play our music, dance and enjoy. During the days, after returning from the beach, we would take to the pool for a late afternoon dip along with afternoon cocktails. How fun!
As for the house itself, wow! The bedrooms are nicely separated and you have a lot of privacy. Everyone loved their outside showers and as I briefly mentioned already, the kitchen and all the amenities made storing all the food and cooking a breeze.
As others have mentioned in their reviews, renting a four wheel vehicle is necessary. Although a taxi will come down the road, it makes it much easier to just drive yourself. We rented three (3) Jeeps between the twelve of us and that worked out perfectly.
If you are one of the lucky ones who gets a chance to rent this wonderful villa, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
