My wife and I stayed at Villa Oceana for a week. The location was perfect, a short drive to everything, beaches, shopping, bars and restaurants. The villa was great, well equipped kitchen, nice living area and a comfortable bedroom. The deck is very private and the view was just amazing. My wife and I have spent a lot of time in the islands but this villa by far has most amazing views we've experienced in the Caribbean. Excellent vacation. We will be returning!
A previous review indicated that the roof (directly over the bed) leaked, and the owner replied that it had been fixed. Not true - it rained at night several times and the roof leaked terribly. Someone came to repair it with some goop (probably the same as the first time) but it did no good.
An ugly old rug covered broken tiles in the living room, the kitchen stove was not supplied with enough gas and ran out after cooking for 15 minutes, a cabinet door had broken hinges, an electrical outlet in the kitchen didn't work, and when appliances were plugged into another outlet it became overloaded and everything in the kitchen stopped working.
Condensation from the air conditioning caused a constant, large puddle of water on the floor tiles of the deck, which was very slippery and dangerous.
When we contacted the property manager, which we had to do several times,especially about the leaky roof, she became annoyed and told us that we needed to be patient, and that these things would be fixed....shortly after we were leaving.
The unit wasn't very clean, either. And, there was no closet or any place to hang clothes. Because this is half of what was once a full unit that was split down the middle into two units, it is very narrow, and there is no soundproofing from the neighbors.
The view and location were wonderful, though. However, I would not recommend this property, especially since we have stayed at another property on St. John at a comparable price and it was so much nicer; we only had positive things to say about that one.
The view was our favorite part of this rental, just as beautiful as in the pictures. Spending time on the deck with coffee or cocktails was splendid. The AC and ceiling fan worked great when we needed it, but that was only a few evenings. The place was very clean, kitchen well stocked for two, coffee maker and grinder were my most used items. Plenty of hot water for showers. WIFI worked perfectly, nice to post my pictures on facebook in the evenings. Plenty of fresh towles, ice chest, some beach chairs ( they are sorta on their last leg, but OK). Easy parking, but that last hill up to the house is a challange the first time, after a day or so you'll be a pro.! Bed was confortable, we slept great. I saw a few tiny ants, but that was my own fault, left some crumbs on the counter. I heard one misquito one night. Close to Starfish Market and all the action in town. We did'nt use the pool but it looked beautiful. Really private when we were there, where was everybody? Got a real good deal at the last minute on this little villa, fresh flowers in a vace when we arrived. Just one negative for us was the narrow spiral staircase to the bedroom, I did'nt like that. I would return. If you rent here or anywhere on the island put out a bowl of sugar on the deck and see a sweet gang of yellow birds get a sugar high (Bananaquits). We had just a perfect time in St. John!
I have truly found paradise. This villa is so nicely decorated and incredibly comfortable. I love to cook and was so pleased to find how well stocked the kitchen was and that the grill was so conveniently placed on the lanai outside of the kitchen.
I am a stickler for nice linens and was thrilled with the quality and quantity of them.
The view from the marble deck was spectacular from morning to sunset - which is a million dollar view! The double lounge on the deck was the perfect place to sip on coffee and meditate into gratitude for the gift of this week.
I called the owner to ask a question about the dish setup and was amazed at the immediate response and the quick fix she was able to give me over the phone. I hate to admit it but I had pressed the wrong button and set everything askew. Within minutes all was well.
The air conditioning and ceiling fan kept the temperature of the villa at a perfect level. The fresh air was also so inviting.
The location of the villa is close to everything and yet just far enough away to feel secluded and peaceful.
Since I own my own company I had to check emails and field an occasional phone call. The WiFi set up is high speed and the cell phone coverage was perfect!
The only thing I would change, if I could, would have been to book 2 weeks instead of 1. Next visit will be 2 weeks for certain.
The view Cruz Bay from this villa was amazing! However I would never recommend 4 adults staying in this tiny villa. The pull out bed was very uncomfortable, and the last night we were ther the upstairs roof started leaking on the bed due to the rain. It is incredibly close to town and grocery store, but some taxis would not return us to the villa because of the 90 degree turns and steep hills you had to take to reach the villa. The owner did respond to our several phone calls promptly, so we were pleased the the service. Under the description of the rental it is listed that there is a large cooler on site, which there is not.
My wife and myself stayed in this villa a few weeks ago. We had reserved the villa a few months ago. Before I gad arrived I saw a review about the kitchen and windows so was a bit reluctant. However when we arrived any doubt was quickly diminished. The villa was jsut right for the two of us. The kitchen had eerything we needed and more. The view is absolutely breathtaking. It was hot the week we were there but the A/C kept the villa perfectly comfortable. We will definitely be coming here again. My parents anniversary is coming up and I think this would be a great present for them as well. We spent most of our days at the North Shore Beaches but on an off day we stay home and sat next to the pool. I was worried about the shared pool, but didnt see any one the entire 2 hours we were there. The view from the pool is just as fantastic. If your looking for a great romantic getaway this is the place!!
