Alyce and Paul bought the land for Sea Swan in 1998 we knew the view would be good but didn't realize it would be spectacular. Even long time St.Johnians are amazed at the wonderful view.

The view. At 622 feet above sea level on a clear day you can see over 100 miles. Complete privacy. Luxurious appointments and fully appointed and stocked kitchen.

Unforgettable birthday trip!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
My husband and I went to St. John to celebrate my 30th birthday. This was our first time to the Virgin Islands, and we could not have chosen a better place to stay! Paul and Alyce's home is just as beautiful as the pictures and they are incredible hosts. We arrived late in the evening, and rather than go out to the grocery store to pick up items for breakfast, we were welcomed with a full basket of goodies, including Alyce's homemade muffins (DELICIOUS!!) and fresh flowers from their garden. The apartment is spacious and airy, with incredible attention to detail, and our favorite part (and many other guests as well) was sitting on the balcony eating breakfast and watching the sunset. The apartment is well-stocked with everything you need and Alyce is particularly good at answering emails if you have a specific request. Although Paul and Alyce are just upstairs, which was nice in case we had questions, the apartment itself is very private and quiet. You will need a car for this location, it would be very difficult to not have one. While a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended, we were able to visit the vast majority of the island with our small rental (Toyota Yaris). Be sure to visit Baked in the Sun, a bakery in Cruz Bay...they have fantastic sandwiches and their breakfast menu looked delicious as well. Paul was so kind and went over the area's beaches with us, and we enjoyed driving around to find our personal favorites (Maho Bay!!) Consider making later dinner reservations - why deal with the 'sunset-seeking' crowds when the sunsets from Sea Swan are absolutely spectacular and you can enjoy them on the balcony, along with a glass of wine, while changing for dinner. We would highly recommend a stay at the Sea Swan and cannot wait to visit again! Happy Travels!!

Spectacular Sea Swan

My husband & I knew immediately we chose the perfect haven for our 10 day stay. Sea Swan is so much more than an apartment. The living area is exquisite with spectacular views from every room. Attention to detail is everywhere, from the welcome basket & well appointed kitchen to the plush towels in the bathroom. Every morning we enjoyed coffee on our private balcony & twice saw breathtaking rainbows! The location was also wonderful! We felt very comfortable driving to town at night & didn't have to worry about unpaved roads. Thank you Paul & Alyce for sharing your lovely paradise!!!

Ultimate relaxation in home away from home

I spent 3 fabulous weeks at sea swan. The apartment is extremely spacious and very welcoming. I felt right at home. I enjoyed listening to the peaceful tropical sounds as I watched the sunrise each morning and sunset each night over st Thomas. The view is spectacular. I could sit on the chaise lounge and watch the twinkle lights of st Thomas for hours. Was such a peaceful feeling. The hosts are very gracious and accommodating. I appreciated there was so much privacy in the apt and on the decks. I would definitely recommend sea swan! I never wanted to leave.

A Perfect Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose St. John and Sea Swan as the destination for our honeymoon and we were not let down. As we were driving up to the home we were commenting to each other that we hoped the place lived up to the pictures... my oh my, did it ever! The home is beautiful and clean. The blue is so relaxing and peaceful and completely perfect for this space. What can't be beat is the view! Amazing! The home is perfectly furnished and felt private and comfortable and perfect!

Alyce and Paul were very gracious hosts. Paul met us rather late to guide us from the ferry dock to the home. He took us to the store to pick up groceries and gave us all the inside information we needed on beaches to visit and things to do. With them upstairs we knew we could count on them if there was a problem or question (there wasn't) but we also felt like we had a completely private place to ourselves.

The balcony outside of the bedroom was my favorite part. So beautiful to go outside early in the morning and just enjoy the morning rain and insanely gorgeous views. We were able to borrow snorkeling equipment. The washer and dryer were nice, so that we always had fresh towels for the beach and didn't have to fly home with dirty clothes.

We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone!

Perfect Accommodations

Seaswan is a lovely apartment with gorgeous views, beautifully furnished, appointed and cared for by wonderful owners. Alyce and Paul take great pride in their home and you can see it everywhere. I felt safe and very comfortable. I even loved it when it rained all day and I had to stay indoors. Their welcome package was above and beyond the norm (muffins, fruit, eggs, bread, and mini snickers bite sized treats in the freezer). The apartment has a real kitchen with an oven and a dishwasher - many places on St. John only have a toaster oven. It also has a huge laundry room next to the apartment with washer and dryer. The bed is fantastic - nice and firm (old beds can sag in St John from the moisture in the air) I plan to return in 2014.
