just stay 3 nights and was worried base on reviews. The screens looked new and the ac in bedroom froze me at night. View was incredible. House is in great condition. I highly recommend villa fabbio. The fridge was very cold. It appears that all outside furniture was replaced or fixed. Cant wait to come back for a longer stay
View was outstanding but the villa was run down and in need of work.
- A/C in main room never worked
- A/C in MBR worked sparingly, very difficult to sleep in hot room
- many holes in screens which let bugs in
- Refridgerater barely kept food cold
Picture and description of villa was very deceiving. The landscaping and general condition of property are that of a run down building or one that needs much TLC. We would definitely not return.
My experience at Villa Fabbio is mixed. The location of the house in Virgin Grand Estates was great and the view from the patio was beautiful but the house needs a lot of TLC. Most of the outdoor furniture was broken and needs to be replaced and the refrigerator barely kept our food cold. In addition, many screens were broken which allowed the bugs inside. The bedding also looked old and weathered.
I am not sure I'd ever stay at this house again....the other homes in this sub-division look a lot nicer and better cared for.
We stayed here in March 2015 and were disappointed with the service and condition of the villa.
The good: Beautiful view, large kitchen, nice outdoor patio/pool area, plenty of space for 4 people and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. Location was good - 10 min from Cruz Bay and easy to get around to other places on the island.
The bad: The AC in the bedroom inside the house did not work at all, so that room was extremely hot at night. There were broken and ripped screens throughout the rental, so we had mosquitos and bugs all over. Every morning we woke up with new bug bites and we were constantly killing big roach-like bugs in the house. The pool was freezing - silly to complain about since its hot there, but it really was extremely cold so we barely used it.
The ugly: This was the biggest disappointment for our group - this place is run down and needs some major TLC. There was garbage and junk lying around the yard. The landscaping has not been maintained and looks overgrown and sloppy, as if nobody has been there in months. The patio furniture was falling apart, moldy and dirty. Some of the patio chairs were cracked and others had arms/legs falling off. A couple kitchen cupboards were falling off their hinges and there were door handles barely hanging onto the door. I also want to point out that there is a lower level that has a separate entrance. I don't know if someone is living there or if it is used for storage, but it looks disgusting and it freaked us out a bit because we didn't know if someone was down there or not.
Overall, the place was run down and felt like a foreclosure property. It was decent and clean inside and it met our needs for the week, but we were not impressed. I would not go back and I will not recommend this rental. A lot of the issues were cosmetic and didn't necessarily impact our stay, but we just found it disappointing that someone would allow their rental to be in this shape.
Lastly, the check in/check out situation was frustrating. The cleaning lady was sent to pick us up and drop us off. She acted very rude and annoyed and didn't make us feel welcome at all. On the last day she showed up 2 hours early and started cleaning while we were eating, so we felt rushed to get out of there. We never saw or heard from Peter any time during or after our stay.
This villa is the total package. Fabulous views, great deck & pool, cozy furniture, ALL extras and amenities that you could possibly ask for away from home....completely like being at home in paradise. Kitchen has everything you might need, including bar supplies and spices!!! There are books and games available, cooler and beach chairs for days at the beach and the MOST AWESOME sling chairs on the deck for relaxation, sunsets or stargazing (even a telescope). We have been to several properties on the island over the past 30 years. This is a personal favorite.
