Our Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

My mother-in-law, wife, our three kids between 13 and 8, and I traveled to St. John and spent a week at the Still Waters Villa for Spring Break. Let me start by saying we absolutely loved St. John. We were blown away by the beauty of the beaches, blueness of the water and remoteness of the national park. The snorkeling was amazing everywhere we went and we rented two paddle boards for the entire week, which was a ton of fun. The Still Waters Villa worked perfectly for us. The views of Chocolate Hole were picture perfect and the openness of the villa was very conducive to a great vacation feel. The kitchen was well equipped and suited us well as we ate every breakfast and many dinners in the Villa, as well as packed picnic lunches for our daily adventures. The master bedroom and bath was very nice and comfortable and our kids and mother-in-law fit perfectly into the second master bedroom and loft. The location of the Villa was also very convenient to the local grocery store and meals in Cruz Bay. The free rentals of the snorkeling equipment from the owners shop Low Key was a nice touch and we used the equipment daily. Other positives of the Villa were the AC worked great, pool was nice for late day dips, the mattresses and linens were very comfortable, and there was a brand new washer and dryer that go a lot of use. In addition to our daily trek to the various beaches (Maho, Trunk Bay, Watermelon Key, Cinnamon Bay, Caneel Bay - all amazing but Maho was our favorite for the paddle boards), we took an awesome sailing/snorkeling trip on the with Captain Rick and Madison, rented the paddle boards from Lucy at, and made the drive over to the other side of the island to The Tourist Trap outside Coral Bay - yummy lobster Rolls and pork nachos. No doubt in our minds that we will be back to both St. John and the Still Waters Villa.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus our 2 college kids stayed here recently for a week during spring break, and found Still Waters to be a great villa. Very nicely appointed, fabulous views, and very private. Chocolate Hole is close enough to Cruz Bay for dinners out, and St. John's beaches are tremendous - thanks, Ann Marie, for the recommendation on Francis Beach! We would recommend Still Waters and the owners without hesitation to anyone looking for a beautifule place to stay.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Ann Marie and Bob were an absolute pleasure to work with. Stillwaters was the perfect Villa to stay in and celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed the last 2 weeks of October 2015 and the weather was perfect. The Villa is beautiful and was fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The views were breathtaking. The private swimming pool was amazing. Stillwaters Villa is definitely the place to stay in St. John. We are looking forward to a return trip in the near future. Thanks again to Ann Marie and Bob for making our 25th Anniversary a special one to cherish!

Incredibly Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Still Waters villa is the perfect place for relaxing by the pool all day and enjoying great views. From the moment we contacted Annmarie, she was very helpful. She suggested we send dry goods ahead of time which worked out great. She also recommended ferries, car rental, deep sea fishing and provided snorkel equipment. She and Bob quickly handled a small leak we had and finally, she graciously dropped lost items by the house. The house is very comfortable and well maintained. It's' conveniently located close to groceries, restaurants and shopping yet secluded enough for much needed quiet. We cooked in most nights and found the kitchen well equipped and particular enjoyed the grill on the deck. We highly recommend Still Waters and we are already making plans to return.

We loved this villa -- a wonderful place to spend our anniversary week. The views from inside and from the deck are amazing. The kitchen/great room is very bright with sliding glass doors on two sides, and the master bedroom is spacious and bright as well. The house is very comfortable and very well maintained. The location is convenient -- only 10 minutes from Cruz Bay, with easy access to the North shore beaches. The house is owned by Annmarie and Bob; Annmarie also owns a watersports /dive shop called Low-key Watersports, which is located right in the heart of Cruz Bay. Annemarie and her staff were very friendly and helpful with great suggestions for restaurants and activities. We booked a sunset snorkel sailing cruise and a dingy rental though Low-key, both of which were a lot of fun. Annmarie also provided complimentary snorkel gear because we were guests at Stillwater.

This is a great villa for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 has stayed in a number of villas on St. John over the years, but Still Waters is the best yet! Annmarie and Bob live on the island, and you can tell that this villa is maintained by people that want their guests to have a great experience. The design is perfect for a family. The master is spacious and very nice, but there isn't much of a drop off for the second bedroom - it is on the other side of the villa with inside access. The air conditioning worked well throughout the villa and the pool is right outside of the living area, which is nice for parents with kids. The house also has a generator, and Bob was at the house within 5 minutes the day the power went out on our trip. The kitchen is well stocked with nice cookware, above average appliances, etc. This is a well built home with a great design, very attentive owners, a convenient location, privacy, and an attractive price. We may charter a boat next year, but the next time we book a house on St. John, it will be Still Waters. Thank you again Annmarie and Bob!
