Feels Like Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week with family in late March/ early May, and to say it was spectacular is understating it. If you want an exotic location without feeling like a tourist this is it. Simply Paradise is a lovely, comfortable home with a postcard view of Chocolate Hole Bay. We very comfortably had 6 adults and two little kids share the 2 upstairs bedrooms and the fully accommodating suite below. The kitchen, spacious living room, sun room and dining area are perfect for a vacation stay. Every morning I was able to brew a fresh pot of coffee, take a cup to the deck and just sit back in a chair with my feet up chilling to the sunrise and the many birds who live in the jacaranda trees by the railing. Cruz Bay has fun restaurants, bars, and fantastic shopping within a 10 minute cab ride from the house and easy walking all around the quaint town, and the beaches of St.John and the nearby BVI are unbelievable ! St. John has a super cool vibe with everything you could want for a relaxing vacation, and Simply Paradise is a place that makes you feel at home in the best vacation spot on the planet ! Finest vacation we've ever had and very much hope to come again!

Great place for family!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Simply Paradise this past April and it was fantastic! Perfect location, great views, nice and cool(ac worked great!) had everything we needed, plenty of space and our boys (6 and 3) loved the kids room and all the toys that were there! This kept them busy while we enjoyed the morning view with our coffee on the deck. Hot tub was great as well and we took advantage of it almost every day! The only complaint (if you can call it a complaint...we were in paradise!) was there were only 4 beach towels for the 4 of us all week...they dried off every night but were pretty salty sandy by the 3rd day. There is a washer and dryer but we didn't want to spend the time waiting for them to get washed/dried before heading out for the day. We ended up getting a few of out own towels for the week. Other than that a perfect 10!

Great View & accessible location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 children (14) & (9). The kitchen is fully stocked. We prepared every breakfast and dinner at the house. The market is right down the road and we grilled on the deck every evening. The owners have graciously supplied beach chairs and towels. They also have snorkel gear and beach toys which saved us rental fees. The house is very clean and spacious. The location is 5 min into Cruz Bay and accessible to all main roads. We can't say enough about the view. It's a beautiful view of Chocolate Hole. We enjoyed the hot tub & watched the cruise ships sail by each evening.

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends go down Mid-October and this house was perfect! It was my first time to St. John and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Conveniently located only a short drive from the beach and shops. We cooked almost all of our meals in the house, as the kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need. A great view to wake up to in the morning or watch the sunset at night.

While we were there, we experienced some bad weather, and had management come check up on us to make sure we had everything we needed for the time we'd be stuck inside, which was great!

I'd definitely recommend this house and can't wait to make it back again soon!

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

Went for a long weekend to run 8 Tuff Miles and it was the perfect place to relax both before and after. Open floor plan with large common area to play a game with the rest of the group or find another spot and relax or read a book. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked several big meals together. But the best part were the views on the deck that goes the length of the house. Expansive across the entire bay at Chocolate Hole. It's one of the main reasons I keep going back there. Easy to get to and then only a 5 minute car ride to the bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay and this place has everything I'm looking for. Highly recommended!

It really is simply paradise

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this house 7 times in the past 6 years. It is in a quiet neighborhood located above Chocolate Hole and walking distance to the Westin. 5 min drive to cruz bay and 10 more minutes to the beaches. The house has such a great feel with extra fun things such as snorkeling gear, toys, kids stuff, etc. Most of the time spent here is either out or on the wonderful back deck, complete with hammock chairs, a grill, table, and a HOT TUB.

Cannot recommend this house enough.
