Guestbook comments from the owner

The photos on line do not do this home justice. The spectacular views immediately lull you into vacation mode. the stresses of daily life melt away with every sunrise from this perfect locationand the gleeful feeeling that only vacation can bring was bolstered with every sunset. The views are truly amazing. The living space of our house far exceeded our expectations as well. The two master suites could be an ad for " coastal living" Magazine. The craftsmanship is stunning, the design of the rooms were only slightly overshadowed by the windows which allowed for such wonderful island breezes.Our children had plenty of space to play and lounge without getting on each others nerveswhich made the trip enjoyable.The kitchen-always the center point of action, is large enough to allow plenty of hands in the kitchen and at the same time allows the chefto partake in the great room fun happenings. Skyway was in a word. "

Perfect! wqe will be back

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a week at Skyway and wish we were still there. The house was an awesome place to stay while visiting a beautiful island. We spent most days going to different beaches or taking boat trips. Skyway was our place to come back to mid-afternoon to and relax by the pool. We only went out one night for dinner as Skyway presented such a nice place for 8 of us to relax and grill out fresh fish and other foods. We spent most afternoons and evenings by the pool and hot tub enjoying what had to be the best views and sunsets on the island. No, the pictures do not do it justice. It was nice to have the snorkel gear, towels, and beach chairs so we really needed to bring nothing for the beach and boat trips. The mosquitoes were a little bad on the island since they had some rain a few weeks prior, and up on the hill at Skyway they were not bad at all with a nice light breeze much of the time. We only had one issue with a power blip at the house, and the property manager Denise took care of it with a response that only left me saying WOW! She was great to work with and gave us a great orientation with recommendations for things to do. We had 6 adults and 2 college age kids. We rented two jeeps which made going anywhere anytime very convenient. Every beach we went to was less than 30 minutes from Skyway, and Cruz Bay was just 7 minutes down the hill for shopping and restaurants. Everyone had a blast and we will definitely try and find our way back to St. John and Skyway. The island has much to offer for great beach lovers.

Perfect Christmas Vacation for 2013

  • 5 of 5
What a terrific house, maintained well, and immaculate. The best view on St. John. You can see Cruz Bay, and St. Thomas. We had one of our best vacations with our family of 6. The Beaches were close by, the pool and hot tub were used everyday by our family. The separate bedrooms were great for our kids. We enjoyed the use of the snorkeling equipment, and of course recommended places to visit from Jay and Denise. We can't wait to go back (especially since temperature now on Jan.7, 2014 is 7 degrees!)

It doesn't Get Better

It doesn't Get Better
  • 5 of 5
Skyway is Caribbean luxury at its finest. On an island like St. Johns where you can't have a home on the beach the next best place is at the tops of the mountains with beautiful views of the bays, islands, and the natural beauty the island holds. Skyway is comfortable and filled with all the amenities one would need to make for a great vacation. Its prime location makes it easy to get to all of the island's beaches, markets, bars and restaurants while still making you feel like you're the only one on the island. One cannot ask for more from a Villa. There are very few homes on the island that would be worth staying in when compared to Skyway. The owner, Jay, was extremely helpful and kind.

Awesome vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Eight members of our extended family (aged 14-84)recently spent a week at Skyway and enjoyed every minute. The views, house, layout, kitchen, pool, hot tub, and location were terrific. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from the pool and spent hours enjoying the view and the breezes from several sitting areas on the property.

There was plenty of room for all of us in the kitchen area when we cooked in and plenty of options for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful environment. We really loved this house!

Jay was very helpful giving us all the information we needed to make our decision to stay at Skyway and Denise was a wonderful resource on the island.

Over the top...literally

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at Skyway. The views off the back are some of the best in all of St. John. The villa was clean, modern, spacious and very comfortable. We were two couples traveling for fun. The house was stocked with all the items you'll need including coolers, beach towels, beach chairs and most importantly, snorkeling gear. The villa is a short 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay with great access to the Coral Bay side of the island as well. We cant wait to come back.

Skyway Was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a magical week at Skyway. We were 5 adults and 5 teenagers. Everyone had their own space and the layout was perfect. The house is beautiful, the layout allows for both privacy and lots of interaction, and the view is the best on St. John. We appreciated the well-appointed kitchen, the beach chairs and snorkeling equipment, and the pool and hot tub. The house was convenient to Cruz Bay and to the beaches. We really enjoyed Cinnamon Bay (swimming, body surfing, snorkeling, kayaking), early morning hikes before the kids got up, dinners under the pergola, and the amazing sunsets. Lots of memories were made! We'll be back soon.
