From beginning to end, from initial conversations, booking, staying...the owner was responsive, kind and wonderful. Aurora is very close to Cruz Bay but away enough from the lights and noise. The layout is perfect. The villa is well-kept, the furniture new and comfortable. Each bedroom has a pillow-top view to die for! The kitchen is stocked with the best of everything. The views from the numerous porches are breathtaking. There are so many places to sit and relax, read, eat or just be amazed that you will have a hard time finding which one is your favorite. The grounds have fantastic flowers that attack many birds and hummingbirds. The views of the water, the views of St Thomas and even Cruz Bay are just amazing. We enjoyed Aurora so much we wish we could have stayed another week! The location, right up the road from the market, is perfect. It has easy parking and a quiet street. After driving the island and seeing many of the villas we had considered. Aurora was SO much better on all counts! From location, ease of driving, views, amenities... you name it. Do NOT hesitate to rent this villa. You will fall in love with it as we did. The only 'heads up' is that it is not the best for toddlers as the railings have wide gaps. But Aurora is beautiful day and night. The night lighting is amazing! The owners have so many attention to details that I could write forever! I am one of the most picky people when it comes to spending our hard-earned money. No one researches more or asks more questions than I do. So, rest assured, Aurora is one villa you do not have to hesitate to rent. I researched villas for 2 years. Yes, 2 years before booking Aurora. I was solely responsible for the choice for all in our party (lots of pressure). This is a treasure.
