Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Afternoon, just wanted to Thank Andretti and BJ for setting us up in Harbor View, we had a great time last week, the view was breathtaking, and the location was great. I will definitely recommend to future prospects.

Perfect home-base to explore St. John!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor View for our honeymoon in May, 2016. It was perfect! Though it is a bit of a steep walk, you can easily walk to and from Cruz Bay in less than 10 minutes. The Dolphin Market (grocery) is about a 2 minute walk. The view from the balcony was incredible any time of day. We loved having coffee on the deck in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. We rented a jeep for 3 of the 5 days we were there (definitely recommend this so you can explore the island) but if you want to stay close to Cruz Bay or if you're taking excursions out of the Bay it is not completely necessary. Harbor View is close enough to walk to town (lots of bars, restaurants, and shops), to some trail heads, and to nearby beaches like Solomon Beach and Honeymoon Beach. We never felt unsafe and though there were people staying in the unit above us, we never heard or saw them. Our space was very private. There is a good breeze that keeps it relatively cool, but there is also an AC unit in the bedroom which was really nice for sleeping. The bed is a king and is very comfortable. There is wifi and satellite TV which was also nice. We only swam in the pool a couple of times because the beaches were so beautiful, but it was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful and drove us and our luggage up the hill the day we arrived and checked in. Be prepared for some crowing roosters outside the windows - this is a pretty common site across the island, but it wasn't too bad with the ambient noise of the AC unit at night. The space was a perfect size for a couple - very romantic. If we came back with a larger group, it would be fun to rent the top and bottom units and fill it with friends or family. There is a maintenance guy who lives on the very bottom of the building but you would never know he's there and he's very friendly. I highly recommend this rental!

Cute flat with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights and I wish it was longer! The villa is in a great location -- walking distance to town and right next to a grocery store. Slight walk up a hill to get to the flat but well worth it for the absolutely gorgeous view of the bay. The patio was perfect for morning coffee and sunset cocktails. 3 of the 5 days we didn't have a car and we managed just fine with strolling through town and hiking to the closest beach. What a great place to call home on our trip to St John!

Pefect place to anchor your St. John visit!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our recent St. John visit. If you want to experience the island as you might if you were a local, this is perfect. Walking distance to Dolphin Market (for your various essentials) and all restaurants, bars, and shops in Cruz Bay & Mongoose Junction, it made all our errands & meals very easy and accessible. For excursions around the island, it's also conveniently located right on Centerline Rd., and very close to the N. Shore Rd., so you can get anywhere you need to go easily. The walk up to the villa is a bit steep (but only for a short distance), so if mobility is an issue, this may pose a challenge. The villa is bright, clean, and very comfortable, with just about all the amenitites you need for a visit to the island. As at least one other reviewer noted, on a busy night, you can hear some of the action "downtown," so peak seasons (presumably, like during Carnival?), it may be an issue. We were so well provisioned, that we never needed to engage property management (though I felt like stopping in just to say "hi!"). The only thing that would prevent us from staying here again is that we will take our kids with us on our next visit, so we'd need another BR.

Gem of a place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely place. It is convenient to everything and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts on the deck and the lovely sunsets. I actually ended up with a horrific sore throat so I probably used the place more than others do. It had all the comforts of home and the evening breezes provided for peaceful sleeps. We did use our ear plugs on several nights as we visited St John during the festive season (last week of December and into Jan), but the music was generally mellow. Robert downstairs was most helpful with advice; he is a very kind man! The tenants upstairs were also a pleasure to meet. It is an overall great place to stay and enjoy the island.

Our stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on St. John after a long day and long flight. We were happy to see our villa was less than 2 minutes away from the ferry. The villa is within close proximity to a grocery store, shops as well as restaurants. The villa has all of the comforts of home and it was a pleasant stay. If you are looking to stay in Cruz Bay, and would like to stay in a villa close to the action for half the cost, Harbor View is the place to be. Definitely would come back to Harbor View.

Harbor View says it All!!!!

  • 4 of 5

BJ and Andretti were a pleasure to work with. We have been coming to St John for almost 20 yrs and Harbor View has the most awesome sunset views of Cruz Bay and over to St Thomas that we have ever seen.Let me just add, that we are budget minded travlers. The king bed was very comfortable and we slept like babies! Harbor View has a challenging drive way and parking spot. We are "senior citizens" so if younger it would not be an issue. We were there for 10 days and never saw a single bug of any kind....just a few mosquitoes after the downpour of 9" of rain. There is a shared pool and a 2 bedroom unit above (Captains View) that had a flat parking area. All in all we were very pleased. Excellant value.
