At Home In the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5
This is our 2nd stay at Still Waters villa and we feel like it's home. The setting is beautiful with stunning views of the ocean from every room, including the master bath shower. It is located a short drive from Cruz Bay. It is tastefully decorated and comfortable. We love the kitchen (which opens to the living room & dining room). It is a pleasure to stay in on some nights and cook and dine with the beautiful view. We also loved the convenience of the amenities provided, like the coolers, beach chairs, snorkel gear, the rafts for the private pool, and the tons of movies for a rainy day (we only had one, luckily). Ann Marie and Bob are both very accommodating and genuinely interested in making sure you are comfortable. We both loved this beautiful villa and are happy we found it. Thank you Ann Marie & Bob! -A & J

A True Vision of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I was invited by my daughter and her family to spend a week at Stillwaters Villa on St. John this July. We enjoyed a very relaxing vacation in a truly beautiful setting. The ocean views from the porch and the living areas of the house were stupendous. The house appears very isolated from the rest of the world due to the wonderful landscaping which affords great privacy.
We cooked most meals in the lovely kitchen which is located slightly above but open to the living room. This arrangement enabled those in the kitchen to interact and converse with other family members who were relaxing in the living room. The kitchen was well appointed and had sufficient preparation areas which enabled several people to assist in meal preparation simultaneously.
The villa is very nicely decorated with island motifs and beautiful art and artifacts.The architectural style is fascinating as the villa is built on several levels which provide for wonderful views of the water and surrounding areas.
Although there were five of us and three different generations sharing the house, we always were able to find our own space and to do our own thing in our own way during the week that we were there. We enjoyed a very relaxing time at Stillwaters Villa.

This visit, they brought the entire family, and we are always happy to share our beautiful island, and home with new adventurers. I hope we see you again next year.

Very comfortable with everything you need for your stay

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this home from end of June into early July. Both Bob and Ann Marie are excellent hosts. Having the snorkel gear rental was another added bonus. This home is very well stocked in way of coolers, cooking utensils, beach towels etc. Great location not far from the grocery store and town yet removed enough that we felt like we were in our own area of paradise. We would highly recommend renting here. We couldn't have asked for a better rental.

Owner's Response: Hi Patti and Drew!

So glad you liked Still Waters Villa! We agree that the snorkel gear adds to the convenience of the rental - so Thanks to Low Key Watersports!
We hope to see you and the family back this way. Our clients are always the best part of the business!
Take Care,

Lovely home and wonderful attention by the island based owners

  • 5 of 5
We have been traveling to St John since 1995 and have stayed at numerous houses, both resorts, and even camped (I don't recommend doing that), and we found Still Waters to be among the best. The house is conveniently located just a short drive to Cruz Bay. It is decorated beautifully, and we enjoyed the floor to ceiling glass surrounding the living room which enabled us to enjoy the lush landscape and water views. The owners are very attentive (one of the air conditioners didn't work and it was fixed early the next morning), but the owners are not intrusive in the least bit. Ann Marie checked in via email to make sure things were going well and to see if we needed anything. We all felt like they genuinely cared about our trip and our comfort. I can honestly write that I have never experienced that type of concern for my family's enjoyment or well being before on the island. Bob, one of the owners, lives in the house directly below Still Waters, and we only saw him when we needed something (I think the other owner Ann Marie lives in a house above Still Waters, and I only saw her in the dive shop). Bob's dog did visit us once in awhile which was always a pleasure, and being dog lovers we got into the habit of bringing our left overs home for him. At first the driveway can appear daunting but was easily maneuvered within a couple of days. I recommend pulling straight in and backing up the hill. Still Waters is a lovely home, maintained with an attention to detail, and the owners go the extra distance to ensure the occupants are well taken care of.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa and Family!

Bob and I care very much about the quality of your vacation! We will do our very best to make sure that the villa is exactly what you expected, from the working amenities, to the high quality of the sheets! Your family was fun and I know that Cookie (the dog) will miss you!

We hope we see you back here again!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and comfortable, just like we expected based on the description and pictures. We especially enjoyed the outdoor space - the views are beautiful, the furniture comfortable, and the pool was perfect for floating with a drink in the afternoon before dinner. Ann Marie and Bob were great to work with. A couple of things needed fixing during our stay (we arrived after a major rain storm which caused some issues), and everything was attended to promptly. It was obvious that our comfort was very important to Ann Marie. It was also great to be able to print our boarding passes and keep our luggage at Low Key on the day of our departure. My husband and I hope to be back soon!

Very Comfortable Villa!

  • 4 of 5
Our family recently returned from a stay at Stillwaters and had a great time! We were planning to have 6 in our group, but had a last minute addition so there were 7 total. Ann Marie was very helpful and flexible with us on the additional person, and the house had plenty of room for us to spread out. The design worked for us as the two main bedrooms are on either side of the villa, so we had plenty of privacy. One of the bedrooms has a nice porch/balcony attached to it that we used when we needed some quiet time. The master is right off of the pool deck, but there are nice, thick curtains blocking the view if needed. All of the beds in the house were incredibly comfortable with high quality linens. The pool is smaller, but very deep, so it stayed cool. The lounge chairs were nice and soft, and the umbrellas were a great addition. Many naps were taken on the porch! The living room furniture was comfortable and even fit our large group. The location of the house is PERFECT. Not far from town, but you still feel secluded and nestled in the tree canopies. The only other house we could see was Bob's below us. Even though he lived close, we were never bothered. Ann Marie checked in on us via email and made herself available if we needed anything at all. The villa was clean, and well stocked with beach towels, coolers, and plenty of chairs... even with our group of 7! We never ran out of hot water, and the air conditioner worked so well that a few of us actually got cold at night! The owners also own the best dive/snorkel shop on the island and snorkel gear is included in your stay. The staff at Low Key was also VERY NICE and helpful! The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because the kitchen is advertised as being a gourmet kitchen, but was lacking on some basic supplies. There was no baking sheet, only one spatula, and hardly any storage containers, just to name a few. We cooked the majority of our meals at home and were in need of a few extra supplies. But the blender worked perfectly and we used it every day! The tile floors/steps throughout the house also get a little slippery after a couple pain killers so watch your step! All in all we had an awesome time at this house and would absolutely return. Thanks Bob and Ann Marie!
