About James Overton

I was born in South Dakota. At a young age my parents introduced me to Virgin Islands on a family vacation trip. I fell in love with Caribbean blue water and the serenity of the islands. I have lived on all three islands for 31 years. I chose St. John to be my home as the island optimized what I had always dreamed about living in a tropical island with a beautiful white sand beach, tradewind breezes and amazing views. I was one of the contractors to joined and completed Westin hotel resort in St. John and Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas. I had fulfilled my dream by building Mandavilla Properties ( Ylang Ylang, Ginger Thomas, Mandavilla Rose, Alexandra Cottage and The Mandavilla) with an amazing views and location. Today I enable to share this beautiful piece of island with you.

James Overton purchased this house in 2006

Why James Overton chose Cruz Bay

What makes this house unique

Beautiful morning view and even better sunset!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and my parents visited St. John for the first time and were not disappointed. The view from the property is breath taking. Its a very short ride into the center of town (others said they walked we were not so ambitious but I suppose its about as close as you can be and still have a wonderful view from above). As a first timer I did not know to ask but was thrilled that Ylan Ylang has a back up generator... apparently power outages are not uncommon in St. John and we did lose power during our stay thankfully the generator immediately came on so we didn't miss a beat. I would absolutely stay at any of the Mandavilla Properties again. My cousin joined us and stayed in Alexandra cottage which is delightful! For us the common living area was too warm to sleep (as we are accustomed to) so Tara graciously provided a VERY COMFORTABLE air mattress for our 2 younger children that we set up in our bedroom so this was not an issue. I have used VRBO in the past and have yet to have any problems, that being said Tara and Jim were very hands on owners which was very nice. They thought of everything from a bluetooth speaker for outside to kitchen essentials to coolers and ice packs for the beach. The place is very clean and the beds are comfortable. Cruz Bay for us has it all: it's close to the ferry, grocery stores, dining, and shopping as well as having a great view and being close to our favorite beaches (Trunk, Maho, and Cinnamon Bay). All in all it was a wonderful vacation I wouldn't change a thing and we hope to be back again soon. Thank you Tara and Jim for sharing your home with us!

The View!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished up a week on St John and Ylang Ylang is an excellent vacation rental. House and property are very clean and well maintained and the amenities are great. The view is one of the best on the island especially for sunset. This was our 3rd St John trip and we can't say enough good things about this property. Tara and James are very attentive and respond promptly to help with questions leading up to the trip and during our stay.

Excellent location and views

  • 4 of 5

Had a four night stay in June with two couples. Property as described. We loved the views and sitting on the covered patio with the breeze in the morning and evening was very relaxing. Lots of birds and iguanas in the trees to watch. The beds were very comfortable, and there was plenty of room for the four of us. We walked down the hill into town at night for dinner and took cabs back up as the hill is fairly steep. We only had one slight issue with the pool being a bit sandy on our arrival, however the owner responded immediately to our concerns and came out personally to correct. One thing of note is that the bedrooms are not connected inside of the property. They each have their own separate entrances, which was fine for us, but if you were taking small children this would be an issue. The owner has a few other properties that would be more suitable for families with small children.
