Beautiful Villa in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we opened the front door to the villa and saw the amazing views it took our breath away! This villa is located near everything you need (5 minutes to grocery, 10 minutes to town, 15 minutes to the most beautiful beaches in the world), but far enough away from the crowds and noise of Cruz Bay. The villa had everything you would need for a perfect beach vacation including 3 different sizes of coolers, beach chairs, plenty of dishes, etc. The beds were super comfortable and the shower that overlooked the bay was amazing! We originally booked this villa for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens), but our friends and their teenage son decided to join us for the week. The villa had plenty of space for all 7 of us to stretch out and have room, but also afforded us wonderful areas to eat and play games together. The kids loved the deep pool and the adults loved drinking on the patio and watching the ocean.

Ann Marie & Bob were extremely helpful throughout the process and even included free snorkel gear for all of us since they own a local dive shop.

We cannot wait to go back!

Beautiful and Comfortable Villa ~ Week went by too quick!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's 5th trip to St. John and 1st time staying at Still Waters... Loved this villa! It was close to Cruz Bay which was very convenient since we went out with Low Key Watersports 2 mornings... highly recommend going diving or snorkeling with them! The villa was very comfortable and the perfect size for our family of 4... teenage daughter slept in the quest room and teenage son in the loft. The open floor plan was wonderful and the kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans and dishes needed to host a dinner party ... we had 2 other couples join us for a pasta dinner 1 evening after a day of diving. The kids enjoyed playing in the deeper pool and I enjoyed laying out around it. There is a nice view of Chocolate Hole and Hart Bay from just about every room in the villa! There are plenty of bath and beach towels and a full size washer and dryer which were used and worked perfectly! Probably the feature I appreciated the most was the a/c in the "entire" villa... after a day at the beach or out on the boat, we would come back to the villa and turn the a/c on and in no time at all it was cool and a bug-free evening was enjoyed while watching a movie as a family! Thank you Ann Marie for being so helpful from the beginning to the end of our stay and to Bob for his help showing us to the villa and captaining 1 of our dive/snorkel days! We'll be back!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I went to St. John and stayed at the most beautiful villa ever. We went to several beaches each day, snorkeled, and ate wonderful food. Our favorite beach was Trunk Bay. During one of the trips to the beach we saw several rays, a turtle, and lots of colorful fish and coral. We took a boat to the British Virgin Islands, saw the Baths, and went snorkeling off the coast of Norman Island. What a beautiful place! The water color and clarity was incredible. The villa was located in an area that was easy to get to all the beaches. It had a wonderful pool and a great view of the water. It was so relaxing. I don't think I have ever been on a vacation that I enjoyed more. Thanks Ann Marie for all the beach and restaurant suggestions. I would recommend Still Waters to anyone visiting St. John...hands down the best! We'll be back.

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!
