Beautiful spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is in the perfect location, with a great view, wonderful spa on the deck, and close to Cruz Bay. It is the guesthouse of a larger villa but is situated for maximum privacy and quiet. My husband and I cooked something on the grill most evenings and just relaxed and enjoyed the view of the lights of St. Thomas. Sinbad and Chris are great to work with and dedicated to providing a great stay to their guests. St. John is a beautiful place with lots to see and do. Highly recommended!!

Cute, quiet, romantic

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well stocked, clean, and private. We spent our honeymoon there, one full week. We used the full kitchen and grill and were a quick drive to the center of town. Sinbad greeted us with warmth and great inside tips. I really don't know if we had rented elsewhere, if we would've been so informed and keyed in. All in all, a fantastic place!

Perfect cottage for a couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic vacation in St. John's, and loved our home away from home. It had everything we needed and was very comfy. The porch is awesome, and having the grill ready to go was wonderful since we caught a couple fish on our boating trip! We enjoyed being tucked away in the forest with a gorgeous view, while having Cruz Bay a short drive away. We highly recommend staying here, you will be well taken care of by Sinbad! :)

We are so thankful we were able to spend our time at St. John in your lovely cottage. Everything we needed was within reach. The view was beautiful, your cottage was beautiful, everything was great! It was the perfect getaway!


Thank you, thank you! We appreciate you helping us with our transition into St John. Thank you for the who's, what, when, where, and how!

Hope to visit again one day!

Meritage Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Property is cozy and well maintained, close to town yet tucked away in the foilage and hills that surrounds St Johns. View is Cruz Bay, Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole. If traveling around the island to visit beaches and snorkeling, Meritage cottage has all the necessary items to ensure your beverages are cold, chairs for the beach and snorkeling gear. Property manager is very nice, met us when we arrived and gave us an overview of the property and a cool refreshing welcome drink. The Meritage Cottage is a lovely booking for couples and if combined with the Meritage House would make a fantastic property for a group of eight. Cheers
