Luxury, lots of personal space inside and outside, and tranquil setting surrounds you.

What makes this house unique

Unforgettable Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Iola for our honeymoon! The house was everything that the listing described and so much more! There were a few items that we had forgotten that was covered in the house and we were so thankful to not have to worry about things. Having beach chairs, coolers and other items that are not easy to travel with made our stay on St. John that much better! The house was absolutely beautiful and we would not only like to return, but will recommend the house to others. We loved eating at Miss Lucy's and exploring the island. The hikes we enjoyed the most were Reef Bay (guided by the National Parks Service) and Ram Head, which is just a few minutes away from the house. Highly recommend!

This was our second stay at Olala and we can't imagine anything better. It's a beautiful house and a beautiful island. The "sleeping porch" is awesome, waking up to the sound of the surf, the sun rise, and the island breeze is beyond description. On top of that the hermit crabs are hilarious. The more you feed them the more come for the handouts. If you're looking for a wonderful laidback vacation this is the place. We will be back for many years to come. I'm almost reluctant to say it, because I don't want it to become to popular, but you should seriously consider staying at Olala.

Ideal Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay at this home in St. John. My husband and I along with our two college age sons spent spring break week at Iola. We found the accomodations perfect for our needs. This spectacular house with large rooms, great views, necessary beach/home supplies and gracious landlords that were available, as well as very respectful of privacy, contributed to our satisfaction. We explored St. John's beaches by snorkeling and swimming as well as enjoyed some relaxing down time in a beautiful and serene setting. The glowing reviews that we read about he house before our booking were spot on. So glad to have found and booked this property.

Beautiful Property. Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
Iola is a beautiful, spacious house with every detail attended to for comfort. The house was immaculately clean and the owners were most helpful throughout our stay. Our favorite spots are the "sleeping porch" with beautiful breezes and views and the terrace area out back. The landscaping is very nice and the entire property gives you the feeling of peace, tranquility, and relaxation. We highly recommend staying here.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay at Iola. The home was above and beyond our expectations. The outlooks are spectacular. Each window, and there are lots of them, gives you a different view. We would have breakfast on the porch overlooking John Folly Bay with the BVI in the distance, happy hour on the patio with the Bananaquit “sugarbirds” and evenings star gazing on the back deck. This home has everything we needed and more. The hosts, Jones and Margie, are kind and gracious. Jones has spent that past several years building this home with his own two hands, the attention to detail is second to none. You can feel the love they have for the island and their home. The location is ideal for spending time in Coral Bay. It took us longer to pack our Jeep then to drive to Salt Pond. There are so many “local” beaches near Iola. Some of the best restaurants on island are just minutes away. Our time at Iola was too short. We look forward to being back and enjoying the warm hospitality of the Jones’.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5
IOLA is a beautiful home! We enjoyed the spectacular views from this home. We were very close to great beaches for snorkeling, and we could walk down to the Tourist Trap for the delicious lobster salad! The home is very comfortable and we totally relaxed! The crabs entertained us every morning with their march to devour the coffee grounds!

Notes:
Strongly suggest renting a 4 wheel vehicle for sightseeing from the many car rentals near the St John ferry dock or from St Thomas airport. There are steep, windy paved roads all the way from the dock to the lower level of villa 'Iola' and the drive past the lower driveway to the upper level car port parking is a typical, unpaved, bumpy, steep, island road. You can also take the bus from the nearby 'Tourist Trap', an outdoor restaurant to go across island from Salt Pond to Cruz Bay (town) for only $1. It runs from 6:00AM to 7:00PM every hour on the hour. There are hiking trials all over the island and many beaches to choose from. Over one half of the island is part of the National Park with old slave plantation ruins and great adventure. Our beaches are renown for great snorkeling. We are off the beaten path!!!
