Wonderful house for exploring the island. We really enjoyed this house and this first time to St John and the Virgin Islands. We had 7 people total (3 adults, and 4 children ages 11-15) and found the house (Belle Mer) and property to be perfect for what we were looking for.
Cimmaron Management provided another aerobed for an additional kid and although it was a little tight in the bedroom it worked out perfectly for our situation. House was clean and very well laid out. Housekeeping came to the house mid week of our visit and cleaned up a bit and changed our bed sheets, they were very friendly and polite! The grounds keepers also showed up the morning of mid week and they were very friendly and let us know what they were there for. It rained nearly every night we were in St John, but the days were usually mostly sunny. The house was laid out well where we could sit on the back veranda and listen to the tree frogs peep while it was raining and just relax. The kids did get some use out of the pool (although somewhat small) and it worked perfect for them to get their snorkel gear figured out and tuned in before hitting the ocean. We ended up renting inflatable Kayaks from Beach Bums (right at the end of the ferry dock 2nd level of building) and they worked amazing for seeing Klein Bay, Rendevous Bay as well as checking out Ditleff Point. Beach Bums were very helpful in rental times and set up process of kayaks, we would highly recommend them for anyone. We found some of the best snorkeling from the places we went on St John right in our back yard from the house. Lots of Black Sea Urchins though so beware, but we did see lots of coral, fish, conch, crab, star fish, sand dollars, snails, and many other things right in the back yard bay from this house. The kids also enjoyed the local iguana that would travel through the back yard every morning as well as the dozen or so Hermit Crab that live in the back yard. There is a small sandy beach on the neck of Ditleff Point that worked good for a landing for the kayaks, but did take the kayaks all the way to the rocky point of Ditleff to see the tide pools. Overall Amazing property, house and island we enjoyed it alot!
Cimmaron Property Management was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Very easy to work with and very friendly. I would say one of the best companies that we have ever dealt with in our travels in many other places. Thanks, all of you at Cimmaron you made it Great!
