AN AMAZING VILLA - EMINENCE ON HIGH!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 12 nights at Eminence on High. This villa exceeded our expectations!!!

The views out of Bordeaux Mtn are amazing. We overlooked Coral Bay, out to the East End of the island and Tortola in the distance. There were countless vista points throughout the property and each gave an equally impressive view. The property is also professionally landscaped and maintained. Driveway in was behind gates and plenty of room to pull in, turn around and pull back out. At the entrance to the home, there is a guest house that also has a laundry room equipped with detergents, etc. There was also three coolers to take to the beach. As one other person mentioned, no snorkel equipment (which was fine), so we rented some down in Cruz Bay for a week.

Prior to the trip, I had concerns on safety of the villa (I had brought my two small children (3 yo & 4 yo), a "mobility challenged" father). I had little to worry about at this villa. The walk up to the main house from the driveway was about 30 steps on tiled stairs with a railing on one side. The inside of the house was perfect. All 3 bedrooms in the main house were accessed through interior access (this was huge for us). The pool / patio areas are tiled. The pool can be accessed through glass doors that open from the outdoor eating area or from the outside patio. For the safety with the kids, we kept the glass doors closed/locked. The kids could still get to it if they walked around, but felt it was something they had to go out of the way to do (rather than falling). The view from the patio is amazing!! At first it appeared that they patio area dropped down into the mountain; however, there is a small ravine that is landscaped -- so that made me feel comfortable!

The villa was decorated TOP NOTCH and was pristine. The villa was stocked with anything you could think of: an abundance of linens, beach towels, seasonings, utensils. Small toiletries were provided. The villa also was equipped with a Sonos sound system which we used all the time to speaker in music throughout the villa and the pool. The Wi-Fi access was great. We were able to access it everywhere; except the stone sitting room. It came in great in the outdoor sitting area and pool. Because each adult brought phones and Ipads -- for cell service, AT&T worked well, Verizon didn't work (for us).

I would not hesitate in booking this villa again!

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH OUTSTANDING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Loved my stay at Eminence on High in beautiful St. John. Unfortunately, I was only able to sneak away from work for a few short days, but this home hit the mark perfectly. The photos on the site represented the villa perfectly, the villa was in immaculate condition, and it is exactly what I had in mind. There is plenty of room at this villa for several couples, with enough places to lay around and read a book if you want to get away from things. Even though there is a home behind and in front of this villa, once you are in the house, you have to really work to see any spec of another house, and they certainly can't see you, so if privacy is important, you can certainly check that box here.

I cooked every day in the villa. They had absolutely everything I could have wanted. A nice steak on the grill one night.

The pool was cold, and I got in once, but the hot tub was perfect. Was great looking up at the stars in the bubbly hot tub with a cold beverage.

Leading up to my trip, I asked the owner several questions which were immediately answered; I really appreciated this as I didn't have a lot of time to get ready.

The only thing I would add is snorkeling equipment (many villas have a handful of masks and snorkels), and a slightly smaller cooler. For one person, the big cooler was a bit cumbersome (even though it has wheels), especially going to Salt Pond. (Clearly, if I'm mentioning these two little nits, the rest of the trip must have been spectacular, and it was. I have to give them *something* to work on. lol)

Also have to give a shout out to the property manager. I contacted him a couple of days beforehand, and since my time was limited, I asked that he just meet me at the Starfish market where I would buy provisions on my way in. He was perfectly flexible - I texted him in the checkout line, he told me that he was in the parking lot, I came out, and he was in the car next to me, and I was on my way. He gave a quick but very thorough run through the house with me, and he was on his way. It could not have been a more efficient check-in. *Exactly* what I wanted.

A few lunches at Skinny Legs, Salt Pond, Trunk Bay, Hawksnest and Francis, and it was off to home for me. This time when I went to Trunk Bay, I got there early (like 9 or so), and went to the far right as you face the water. There was a nice nook there that gave some privacy. I'll be back.
