Guestbook comments from the owner

Our ten day St. John vacation was filled with a beautiful home,beautiful people and beautiful experiences. The rental home (Points of View) was beyond description with the bold and varying ocean and bay views that surrounded the property. The open layout, multiple doors and circular deck gave the sense of living outdoors & indoors simultaneously. The vibrant colors and home design captured the St. John reality, providing numerous opportunities to relax, to read,converse,swim,and eat with numerous variations in the water views that were constantly changing throughout the day. The drive to the East End of St. John is an experience not to be missed; as we wound around the island through the National Park we took pictures of Donkeys, goats and other wildlife. The Caribbean Sea views surrounded us throughtout the 10 days. The bay offered a back drop captured against green mountains and small islands with multiple colors of blue water (aqua marine,crystal blue, turquoise, ect.) that contrasted with the green vegetation and the hillside. We learned to snorkel, visiting 5 beaches. each different and offering an unique vegetation and marine experience. We meandered down our road when we were in local snorkel/swimming mood and drove to Trunk Bay, Waterlemon Cay and Cinnamon Bay when we were feeling adventurous. Every morning and evening started with a dip in the swimming pool,providing either planning for future outings or a reflection time for the day. Our family enjoys to read and the home/deck/grounds provided a variety of reading settings where we could be alone with our thoughts or congregate as a family. Our only disappointment was our inability to use the villa to its maximum capacity. Three people felt somewhat rambling. Next year we will solve this by inviting our daughter's friends or asking relatives to join us in this stimulating and aesthetic experience.

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

This is a top notch property with all the amenities one could think of. The views from the deck are unsurpassed. The service from the caretakers was also faultless. This house had everything we needed and more and is one of the best places we have ever stayed in. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer!

One thing, the roads are not for the faint of heart or for low clearance sedans.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house with spectacular views. Every bedroom has a private bath and a view. Walk or quick drive to beautiful, uncrowded beached with excellent swimming, boating, and snorkeling. Great for one or more families. Pool and sun deck. Athena and Jay ate accessible and fix any problem promptly. Convenient to our favorite restaurant, Sweet Plantain, in Coral Bay.

Beautiful Home, Fabulous Views, Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

Points of View is the best. With its cheerful, colorful décor inside and the outdoor views to die for, this is a wonderful place to relax and recharge. It's completely comfortable, whether you curl up inside with a book/ebook, sunbathe on the massive deck or take a dip in the pool. The location is serene -- the East End of St. John is worlds away from Cruz Bay, but CB is there is you want it. However, don't forget to explore Coral Bay, which has its own laid-back island charms. But the best thing to do, day in and day out, is snorkel! You can walk to the nearby homeowners beach or take a short drive to many other less-crowded, out-of-the way spots, although there's not a bad beach on St. John. We have been to POV several times and heartily recommend it.

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular place to vacation! The home is beautiful, the bedrooms are comfortable with each having its own bathroom, the amenities are terrific, and the scenery just can not be beat. Though our days were mostly spent snorkeling and swimming in the fabulous ocean waters, relaxing by the home pool or reading in the late afternoon on one of the lovely decks as the colors of the sky slipped into grays was always a delight. The worst thing about Points of View is that eventually you have to leave.
