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!

EXCELLANT TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The kids and I had a fantastic stay @ Still Waters. The villa had a relaxing floor plan where we could be close or plenty of room on the deck for alone time. The view was incredible with nice lounge chairs, umbrellas and a table to enjoy dinner. The villa was very clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure. Coolers, towels and beach chairs were provided for our trips to the many beautiful beaches. Fab restaurants were Zo-Zos, the Terrace, Oceans362 and La Tapa. Rent a jeep and get brave! Anne-Marie and Bob were very gracious host. St. John is a real gem, ENJOY!!

FELT LIKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a week at this beautiful island home and the only problem was that our stay wasn't long enough! The property is even more beautiful in person that it appears in the photos. The home is immaculately clean and well cared for. There are gorgeous sea views from every room in the house...even the shower in the master bath has a magnificent view! The location was perfect...nice and quiet yet a quick and easy drive into Cruz Bay and to the beaches. The owners were wonderful. They made sure we had everything we needed...one morning the blender broke. We called to let them know and by the time we got back from the beach that afternoon a brand new Cuisinart blender was waiting on the counter for us. We also appreciated the snorkel gear that was included from their dive shop in town. Brand new beach chairs were available for our use and coolers were there and ready to be packed for our daily beach trips. This was a most memorable family vacation and we truly enjoyed every moment at Still Water...thank you Bob and Ann Marie...we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us Heidi and Orlando! We are glad that you and the kids had a wonderful time. The best part of our business is the fun clients we meet along the way, and you definitely qualify! We hope to see you back next year!

CHARMING, WELL EQUIPPED HILLSIDE VILLA, WITH BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Two well travelled couples in their early 60's travelled from snowy Vermont in April to this charming, modern, well equipped hillside villa. About 8 minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, you arrive at this beautiful, clean home, that had everything we needed. The kitchen was large and functional, and the bedrooms were inviting, open, and impeccably clean. We loved the comfort of the king size bed, and the home had wonderful views of the blue water, allowing plenty of sunshine to come in. Outside, the deck had very comfortable seating, with beautiful views, overlooking the hillside trees. Additionally, the home had excellent Wi-Fi ( a must for us). The villa even comes with beach chairs that you can pack into your Jeep, as well as a cooler and complimentary snorkeling gear for all. Although indicated as a potential issue in other properties, we did not see any ants or unwelcome critters. Overall, the villa was clean, open, spacious, and very relaxing. The A/C worked very well, and both couples had their privacy at each end of the home. The owners were great to deal with, both before and during our stay. The only side note regarding St. John, we recommend the rental of a Jeep, to get up some winding hills. However, we quickly adjusted to the roads, and after the second day, we were travelling like locals. Overall rating: A. Great place, good value, very relaxing, with a comfort layout and design.

IF YOU GO TO THE ISLANDS, STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were treated last December with 2 airline tickets to St. John, returning after a 20 year absence. My sons started searching for a villa in November, and were fortunate to stumble across an opening at Still Waters for a week in February. And what a week it was!
Prior to arrival, my sons and I exchanged numerous emails with co-owner Ann Marie regarding a host of questions from on-site equipment, shopping spots, car rental tips, etc. She was always gracious, helpful, and timely with her responses. We were never able to ask a question that she couldn’t answer. It was most comforting to know that there was someone there to take care of business.
We were met at the Cruz Bay ferry dock by Bob, who whisked us to our car rental and then to the Villa for a quick but thorough introduction to all the amenities of the beautiful property. After the long flight from NYC, it was such a pleasure to be able to get settled in so quickly – a mere 2 hours from airplane to poolside, thanks in large part to tips and tricks that Ann Marie and Bob offered ahead of time.
As for the Villa – there isn’t much more to say than what others have said below. We found it clean as a whistle, well laid out, full of all the amenities we would expect for a top-shelf resort destination, and quietly located in a spot less than 10 minutes to Cruz Bay. Never been to the islands before? Have concerns or questions about this Villa? No worries about Still Waters. Rest assured – spend your advance worry time fussing over island-essential issues such as sun screen and rum.
One tip that I discovered, and that Ann Marie was able to accommodate, was to send myself two boxes of gear ahead of time. The US Postal Service has 3 sizes of boxes, Priority Mail, and the largest was $18 to mail. I filled it with some Power Bars, sunscreen bottles, lotions, etc. The TSA at every airport has not been kind to travelers as of late – especially with liquid containers over 3+ ounces. Ann Marie gave us her mailing address, and alerted us by email when they arrived. We found them on the kitchen counter on arrival, safe and sound.
Lastly, the beaches. The complimentary snorkel equipment provided by the Low Key dive shop was served up by friendly staff; what a great addition to the myriad benefits of a Still Waters rental. We managed to find beach bags that we were able to stuff with over-sized beach towels (provided). Toss all items in the Jeep - and you're GOOD TO GO!
