Beautiful, immaculate home
Wonderful experience at Villa Iola. Clean, comfortable, and beautiful property with everything you need. The outdoor sitting areas and flowers ard gorgeous. Marge and Philip are very gracious hosts. Highly recommend.
Saint John was amazing!!!
Our stay at IOLA was wonderful. It is the perfect retreat for any couple wanting to get away from it all. The owners were not only accommodating, they went above and beyond what was expected just to make sure we were comfortable and that we experienced all that Saint John had to offer. I would recommend IOLA to anyone. We absolutely loved everything about it. ~Shawn & Kim Ward
The entire experience was peerless! The vistas from Iola are incredible, the nearby snorkeling opportunities are fabulous, and the people are the best! The floor plan was open and spacious and the home is situated such that there is a steady sea breeze flowing throughout the day and night. The owners are terrific, kind people, and the love and attention they put into building this home is obvious. if you're going to St John, this is the place to stay!
A very special place with great views and cool breezes!!!
Loved Iola!!!! The place was comfortable and homey with plenty of room. A fully equipped kitchen and lots of places to sit and admire the views! The best place to sleep was on the screened porch. Received lots of good recommendations from Nikki, Marie's daughter on things to do and places to see. The big highlight was going out on Capt Jimmy's boat, Kiote! Enjoyed sailing around Huuricane hole and Sara taking us on a guided snorkeling trip of the beautiful mangroves. Saw all sorts of marine wild life! Loved the Coral bay side of island and loved Iola!!! We would stay there again!
This place has amazing views and we had an awesome breeze all week. Meticulously built and maintained. we had just 2 in our party but this would be very comfortable for 4. Awesome job and hats off to Margie and Jonesy!!
We had no idea what we were doing when we booked this trip. Definitely read trip advisor for lots of tips about hiking, activities etc. with regard to our accommodations – we got so lucky. This house is truly beautiful and very nicely appointed. The view is priceless. I am so glad we stayed at this part of the island - get out of Cruz Bay for sure. Things we did not know: Margie and Jones and their dog live downstairs. You want to come prepared for island living and not expect five star white glove convenience. This is a DIY vacation. Bring shoes you can hike in, don't waste water, don't expect A/C. We loved every minute. Tip: forgo the master bedroom and sleep on the bed on the porch - you will awaken to the most incredible view daily and an ocean breeze. Absolutely beautiful.
'Iola' is located 10 minutes past Coral Bay 'Town' on the quiet end of St John. Suggest you rent a 4wd vehicle to enjoy the adventures and all the many beaches you want to explore. From Cruz Bay cross the island via Centerline Road takes 30 to 40 minutes. Other Activities: St John has over 40 hiking trails thru the national park & over 22 beaches. Snorkeling is excellent in aqua bays.
