Wonderful views, as advertised. Location was convenient to everything, Jeep required. Did have an issue with the pool, but the management company was very quick to address it. Myrtle was always very pleasant. Easy recommendation.

Fantastic view in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Mar de Amores was perfect for our family vacation. The pool and grill were a great way to end the day after snorkeling on the North Shore Beaches. The villa had everything we needed for a memorable stay.

Villa Mar De Amores was everything we could have asked for and so much more!! From start to finish the experience was PERFECT. The owner, Claudia, was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to my many questions as this was our first time staying on the island. Myrtle, the house manager, was delightful and quick to respond to any our needs. The location of this villa is ideal...a short drive to town yet located up in the tree tops where you can enjoy total privacy with the most amazing ocean and sunset views.

The villa feels so spacious with its high ceilings, wall of sliding glass doors, and balcony off the bedrooms. The outside living space includes an expansive deck with a refreshing pool, a sunny lounging area, a covered space for dining alfresco, and a generously sized grill.

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time on St. John and would highly recommend Villa Mar De Amores as your "island home away from home".

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this little slice of paradise. Comfortable accommodations, beautiful views, tranquil setting and a short drive to any and all of the islands activities. Wear sunscreen and flip flops on the deck (hot,hot,hot!) and remember to "think left" when driving the winding roads on St. John!

Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

The house suited us well (3 couples). The views were stunning! I would definitely recommend the house to friends/family. The only slight draw back to the house was the lack of some basic kitchen supplies (aluminum foil, plastic wrap, can opener, cheese grater would have all been handy!) Also, other houses I have stayed at have supplied paper towels, toilet paper, kitchen trash bags etc for the week and this house did not. It obviously did not impact the happiness of our week but we're just little things that we noticed. Overall the house was fantastic!!
