Wonderful Villa!

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here for 9 days and it was absolutely spectacular! The view as stated by previous visitors was beautiful. We spent our time during the day visiting the beaches and hanging out with friends that live on the island. We ate all of our meals in and having a large kitchen was definitely a plus. The kitchen could use a sharpening stone for the knives but other than that we had everything we needed to make delicious meals overlooking Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole. Myrtle was extremely helpful and Claudia was pleasure to work with. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. It was nice to swim in the pool in the morning and in the evening after our long days out on the the island or in the water. We visited Salt Pond, Francis Bay, Maho Beach, took a sunset cruise via Cruz Bay Watersports at the Westin, went scuba diving & boating. The grocery stores were very convenient and we refilled our water jugs at St. John Ice to save on trash. We rented a Jeep and it was a lot of fun driving around on the island. You just have to take it slow and remember to 'Stay Left'. It was warm and humid in the evening so we did utilize the AC units in the bedrooms. But as soon as we got up in the morning they got turned off and the doors opened to catch the breeze. The weather was perfect and we wished we could have stayed longer!

LOVED the View!

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week on St. Thomas with friends, my husband and I enjoyed several days alone at Mar de Amores on St. John. Hands down, our stay at this beautiful villa was our favorite part of the vacation! After eating out most night on St. Thomas, we enjoyed cooking every night at the Villa so we could enjoy the amazing view. Every afternoon when we returned from a full day at the beach, there was an adorable baby goat grazing on the hill above the villa.

There is quite a bit of wildlife on St. John, so always keep a camera handy. You will not regret it if you bring along an underwater camera to capture the sea turtles and stingrays at Maho Bay!

The Villa is on the very top of a steep road, but we had zero problems in a normal rental car (no Jeep needed). After the initial drive, it is easy. Just always remember, "Keep Left"! It is very convenient to Cruz Bay and several food stores.

Myrtle met us at the ferry and was very friendly & professional. We followed her up to the villa where she showed us all of the amenities before leaving us to enjoy our vacation.

Whether there are 2 of you or an entire family, you will not be disappointed in the villa with all of the included amenities.

We hope to return to St. John in 2017 or 2018 and plan on another stay at Mar de Amores!!

Wondeful time at mar de Amores

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my 22 year & 9 year old sons and I spent the most perfect week this January at Mar de Amores on St. John and it was even better than we'd hoped. The living room opens to fantastic open deck with a nice pool and an amazing view of the Caribbean. The bedrooms have a great ocean view as well and are air conditioned which we did not need at all, since it was very breezy. The villa is at the very top of a road. The master bathroom was just remodeled and look nice. The view is worth the climb every time, and only minutes from Cruz Bay. Claudia, the owner was professional and accommodating. Her villa manager, Myrtle was a pleasure and did everything to help make our stay comfortable. The house looks really nice, clean and all in perfect working condition; we had a relaxed week, and didn’t want to leave. We recommend Mar De Amores and hope to return as soon as possible.

Views are better than the photos...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in July 2015 and very much enjoyed our visit. The online photos do not do justice to the actual views from the villa, which are quite spectacular.

The property itself was attractively furnished with all the necessities to make for a pleasant stay. There's excellent air conditioning in the bedrooms for use when needed, although elevation seems to keep the villi itself pretty cool even during hot weather. The central rooms do not have air-conditioning but we didn't find it necessary in any event.

There is a large outdoor deck with an outdoor picnic table for dining and a large grill which if necessary could probably be used to grill meat for a small wedding reception. Our kids spent hours in the pool which has lights that can be turned at night for a romantic before-bedtime dip.

The drive up to the villa is certainly a bit hair-raising but I suppose that's the price one must pay for the beautiful views. I don't believe it's possible to rent anything less than the four-wheel-drive in St. John anyway, so there shouldn't really be a problem.

Wonderful villa, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated my 40th birthday in beautiful St. John, USVI for 8 fabulous days. Even though we didn't need three bedrooms, like Mar De Amores has, this was the perfect choice for us. The location of the villa is great; it is convenient to town but far enough away to have your privacy. The view of Chocolate Hole is amazing. When looking for a villa to rent, I was looking for one that had lots of windows/doors that we could open to have the cross breeze and convenient to town and the beaches. Mar De Amores was just that for us. With the June high temperatures of about 85 degrees, we never felt we needed to turn on the air conditioner units; the cross breeze was great. The villa was very comfortable and home like. It had all of the kitchen necessities that we needed and even had beach necessities like beach chairs, beach towels and coolers for your use. We rented a Jeep from Conrad Sutton and were able to use their parking lot when we went downtown so we didn't have to pay to park in town. Claudia was good to answer any questions that we had before we got there and it was comforting to know we could call Myrtle if there were any needs while we were there on island. We would definately rent from Claudia and stay at Mar De Amores again. We are already thinking about when we can go back and take the kids this time. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful St. John Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from a wonderful vacation to St. John and St. Thomas. The Villa Mar de Amores was a perfect choice to spend on our 12th wedding anniversary on St. John - it was even better than we hoped for. The villa is positioned at the top of the hill and had beautiful water views from the patio and the other living areas. It overlooks Chocolate Hole and is very convenient to town (Cruz Bay) and all of the island beaches. Simple put, PARADISE.

The Villa comes with all of the necessities that one could want- Beach Chairs, Coolers, Washer & Dryer, TV (Cable) and of course the beautiful deck side pool. Claudia the owner was very helpful and friendly to work with. Myrtle, the villa manager was there to meet us at the ferry and escort us to the villa and help us with any questions we had. We visited 6 different beaches in 6 days and each one was more beautiful than the one before.

Needless to say- we can't wait until next year and we highly recommend Mar de Amores
