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

Wedding Celebration

  • 4 of 5

This was a great spot for our trip for my sister's wedding. A few minutes to town for shops, food, and bars. My family of 5 had plenty of room and comfort for our down time. The view was excellent! Owners were very helpful and accessible.

Perfect villa for your perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was fantastic! The owners did everything top notch with this house and the amenities! I've stayed on St John several times before and this was by far the best spot I've seen. It was close to town which was super convenient. The beds were probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The view was spectacular! It was such a treat every morning to get a cup of coffee and sit out on the comfy couch outside admiring the beauty and the same for cocktails in the evening! The owners were super sweet and very accessible to anything we needed. I highly highly recommend staying at this villa, you will NOT be disappointed! We will be going back! Thanks James and Tara for a perfect weekend!

Amazing view with lots of privacy!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were looking for a romantic, relaxing, and private getaway vacation and Ylang Ylang was the perfect place. The view is great, and we were fortunate to have been there over July 4 so that we could see the fireworks over Cruz Bay. The pool was an added bonus. The house is situated in a very private and quiet location, yet one that is so close to town and the restaurants. A short drive to the beaches , too. We've done a lot of traveling and would highly recommend this house.

Luxury, amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in mid-June (two adult couples). The home was fantastic! The Overton's put a lot of thought and care into making sure our stay was perfect. The home was incredibly clean, well decorated and VERY confortable with all the little additions you could need through a stay such as pans, pots and utensils in the kitchen, to great beach towels for use throughout the stay, to water and beach accessories at your disposal. The beds were amazing and provided for a heavenly nights sleep! Tara and Jim were so kind and helpful if we ever had a question, and Tara really went out of her way to be available for us. I cannot recommend this location enough! An absolute perfect choice for the perfect vacation!
