Location: One of the best we have enjoyed in our many visits to St. John. The view was spectacular with gorgeous sunsets and the lights of St. Thomas coming on in the evening. The house itself it was accessible and convenient; only minutes from Cruz Bay. The road from the main road up to the house (Chocolate East) was an easy grade and paved all the way. Parking at the house couldn't have been easier. There is a new market nearby which made provisioning stress-free. A 15 minute drive brought us to the north shore beaches and a 25 minute drive to the East End.
The house: First, the deck went on for miles with plenty of seating and chaises. There were three different deck dining areas in addition to the pool deck. This was the best equipped house we have ever rented anywhere. Even a professional chef would appreciate all of those can't-live-without gadgets. This house is not new. Don't expect it to be a state of the art house like you may live in at home. When I commented to the house manager that a new mattress was needed (when he came by to fix a TV glitch), he called me later that day and told me that a new mattress would be delivered the following day. How's that for service!! The bedroom was huge and air-conditioned with a walk-in closet and safe. The master bathroom - well, the shower had a glass roof above it, so it was almost like showering outside plus a large vanity and huge mirror.
The pool: Just look at the photos and it's even more beautiful. We spent most of our days floating in the pool and star-gazing at night in the hot tub.
Bill and Jan couldn't have been nicer. Bill called me at the house after the new mattress was delivered to make sure we were happy and Dave, the house manager, was responsive and accommodating.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful house Bill and Jan, and for your personal kindness and consideration. We hope to be back again and again.
