Simply Paradise also has a brand new 4 person Jacuzzi. The perfect spot to spend your evening underneath the stars.
We stayed here with our 2 children (14) & (9). The kitchen is fully stocked. We prepared every breakfast and dinner at the house. The market is right down the road and we grilled on the deck every evening. The owners have graciously supplied beach chairs and towels. They also have snorkel gear and beach toys which saved us rental fees. The house is very clean and spacious. The location is 5 min into Cruz Bay and accessible to all main roads. We can't say enough about the view. It's a beautiful view of Chocolate Hole. We enjoyed the hot tub & watched the cruise ships sail by each evening.
We had a group of friends go down Mid-October and this house was perfect! It was my first time to St. John and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Conveniently located only a short drive from the beach and shops. We cooked almost all of our meals in the house, as the kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need. A great view to wake up to in the morning or watch the sunset at night.
While we were there, we experienced some bad weather, and had management come check up on us to make sure we had everything we needed for the time we'd be stuck inside, which was great!
I'd definitely recommend this house and can't wait to make it back again soon!
Went for a long weekend to run 8 Tuff Miles and it was the perfect place to relax both before and after. Open floor plan with large common area to play a game with the rest of the group or find another spot and relax or read a book. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked several big meals together. But the best part were the views on the deck that goes the length of the house. Expansive across the entire bay at Chocolate Hole. It's one of the main reasons I keep going back there. Easy to get to and then only a 5 minute car ride to the bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay and this place has everything I'm looking for. Highly recommended!
I have stayed at this house 7 times in the past 6 years. It is in a quiet neighborhood located above Chocolate Hole and walking distance to the Westin. 5 min drive to cruz bay and 10 more minutes to the beaches. The house has such a great feel with extra fun things such as snorkeling gear, toys, kids stuff, etc. Most of the time spent here is either out or on the wonderful back deck, complete with hammock chairs, a grill, table, and a HOT TUB.
Cannot recommend this house enough.
We LOVE Simply Paradise! My husband & I have been to St John 3 times and have always stayed at this wonderful house. This time we traveled with our 10-month-old daughter as well as our friends & their 10-month-old. The house was perfect for us. It's a great location & an easy drive to restaurants and all of the beaches. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking at home, which we did twice. The porch is perfect for hanging out in the morning, and the hot tub was a welcome way to end the day after the girls were in bed. Although, I have to say that the hammock swings are the best part of the deck at any time of day - especially when watching the sunset!
I don't have a lot of experience with beach vacation rentals, but this place exceeded expectations. It is nice, clean, and well maintained and feels like home as soon as you arrive. The house is stocked with everything you'd need, but you'll spend most of your waking hours out on the deck. It's a convenient location (though you'll need a car) with great views of Chocolate Hole. I'd definitely recommend it to others and hope to go back soon myself!
