Just the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in the VI and BVI, and had the vacation of a lifetime. We began our vacation with a 3 night stay at Ylang Ylang, and it couldn't have been a more perfect start to our trip. We'd never been to the VI before, and were a little unsure about location, driving (wrong side of the road :)), and so forth.

The villa is well appointed, with a complete kitchen, wonderful pool/patio/balcony, and the most gorgeous view! Waking up to that view each morning, and having coffee outside was such a treat - such a peaceful place to relax. The inside and outside are very well maintained, and the housekeeper and property care taker are both extremely pleasant and helpful. The owner provided a lot of great information at the time of booking, and also checked in with us to make sure our stay was going well.

The villa is in an excellent location, and we were able to walk to Cruz Bay each day. We hiked the VI National Park trails, which are also within easy walking distance from the villa, and hiked to Solomon Beach, Honeymoon Beach, and on to Caneel Bay Resort for lunch one day. We had the best sushi there - Geisha Roll! We hiked back up the trail to Cruz Bay, and then would either walk back to the villa or take a taxi. It's a steep uphill to go home, but a great workout! In the evenings we would walk back to Cruz Bay for dinner - must try The Lime Inn - and then would take a taxi back to the villa at night.

We will definitely recommend this villa to our friends, and look forward to going to back to Ylang Ylang with our family in the future.

Enjoy!

9 days of happiness

  • 5 of 5

This was our 12 visit to St. John - our favorite spot in the Caribbean.

we have stayed on both sides of the island and prefer the Cruz Bay side for the accessibility to "Love city" and the beaches.

I must say - Ylang Ylang was perfect! we were two couples and there was plenty of space to enjoy each others company yet have private space to yourself with the bedrooms being on two different levels. you cannot beat the location - quiet, yet 1 minute from downtown cruz bay. the villa has spectacular views of St. Thomas. The expansive deck lends itself to the outdoor living we prefer when we get out of the cold in the dead of winter. The sectional couch outside was perfect for chilling at night and the small pool was just right for a cooling off dip. furnishings were new and very well done. Kitchen was a little tiny bit short on pots and pans (a small fry pan was missed for eggs in the morning!) but had enough good quality dishware and glassware for 4-8 people. the upstairs master bedroom had great sliding doors onto the deck with a king bed and the downstairs bedroom was huge and very quiet at night with a super comfy king bed as well. having a small fridge downstairs in the bedroom was a great help.

I would not hesitate to stay here again! working with the owner was a great experience and on island we had a super gal to help us with anything we needed (our car broke down and she was quick to call a friend to check it out for us!) I look forward to returning as soon as possible!!!!

Very Nice Villa with Great View and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another wonderful visit to St. John. When picking a villa, I always make sure to find one with a great view (preferably facing west) and great outdoor spaces. Ylang Ylang did not disappoint. The very large outdoor living terrace and it's wonderful western view of the sea and St. Thomas was perfect. The house was clean, comfortable, easy, and very convenient to Cruz Bay (about a 3 minute drive). My two daughters shared the lower level bedroom while my wife and I stayed upstairs. After a day at the beach, we would all enjoy sitting in the lounge chairs at to corner of the terrace, sipping our drinks, while watching the wonderful sunsets...and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas. It was nice having Jim, the owner, right next door, and available to take care of any problems. While Jim's house is very close, the thick tropical vegetation provides a nice buffer, and our villa felt private. Overall, a great vacation and great villa to stay in.

Tim and family (Florida)

  • 5 of 5

Ylang Ylang was perfect for my family including my 2 1/2 year old duaghter. The owner Jim was extremely helpful and was there if needed. The unit is very well equipped and close proximity to town but not to close. I already miss this place and can't wait to come back. Thanks so much Jim for a vacation my family will never forget.

St John is by far the pretest place I have ever seen. This is coming from someone who travels quite a bit. This little island paradise is easy to get around and very safe.

Welcome To St John

  • 5 of 5

I'm a man of few words so i'll keep this short and sweet. This place is awesome. My wife and i (32 and 33 respectively) came on our honeymoon. We had 10 nights- 5 of which were planned at in Cruz Bay and 5 at Coral Bay. We loved Ylang Ylang so much- that after our original 5 nights we extended our stay. It's the perfect place for 2 people. The little pool and outdoor deck is fantastic. It's literally about a 2 minute drive to downtown/grocery store. The owner- James- is right next door but goes out of his way to respect your privacy. And yet he's there when you need him.

I fully expect to come back again in a year or two. Enjoy this wonderful Island.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Ylang Ylang was perfect. My brother and I took my dad to Cruz Bay for his 70th birthday. Jim, the owner, could not have been more cordial and helpful. The views were as pictured and the condo itself is beautifully designed and incredibly well kept, private and isolated (although it is a stones throw from town!!) The perfect place for an island get away for those not looking for the run of the mill tourist experience. Looking forward to our next visit soon! p.s. My dad left some clothing at the condo Jim contacted me, and we had the clothes before we unpacked, talk about white glove service...we got it!!
