We LOVE Seawing!

I left St. John this morning and am currently on the flight to the West Coast to go home. This past week, we stayed in another villa on St. John, because we didn't know that Seawing is back on the vacation rental market, and may not have been when we put in our reservations. Although this other Villa is wonderful, it's not Seawing.
My wife and I spent a week at Seawing almost a decade ago - it was the most wonderfully romantic week of our life. Every time we drive by Seawing we talk about how, "Seawing is by far our favorite Villa on St. John."
This morning as we were leaving the island, we passed Seawing, which ptompted my wife to tell the other two people on vacation with us about Seawing. She told them about how the front of the house seems open to the sea. We talked about the unique tiered layout that adds charm. We talked the fantastic front deck and how much we loved it. We reminisced about the back courtyard and shower.
I'm excited to see that Seawing has new owners Andi love the improvements you are making. I'm sure I'll be staying soon.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review about Seawing. Like you, the villa has always charmed us. We feel very lucky to have been able to purchase the villa and have our dream of ownership fulfilled. We have just spent 2 weeks at the villa working with local contractors completing upgrades of a new custom-built mahogany kitchen, bath and the installation of a hot tub. The landscapers have done a staller job in restoring and improving the original gardens. The privacy of the mountainside hot tub with water views and the expansive ocean/island views from the deck linger in our minds even though we have left ST John. We have done our best to improve upon the villa while maintaining its unique character. We hope that you return to once again experience the spender of Seawing.
