The swimming pool is 3' to 5'9' deep and 15X 24 rounded. Brand new spa just added October 22, 2013! Bismarkia has central AC
The home itself is so perfectly laid out and decorated and the well stocked kitchen was a real treat.
The mountainside location was stunning and whatever little reservations I had about not having a water view quickly disappeared when I realized we had a private, beautifully landscaped property to gaze at from the patio and pool as well as every window in the house. I went from window to window every day just looking for the little deer family to show up. They came a couple of times daily and we were also visited by cats, birds and iguana's. We resisted the urge to feed any of them but really enjoyed their company!
Bismarkia's location in Fish Bay was also lovely...private and off the beaten path but far from "isolated". It took us about 15 minutes to get to town and we were also able to skip downtown traffic (not that there was much) by taking 104 out to many of the hiking trails we tackled.
The time of year was also perfect for us. The island was not the least bit crowded, yet we did not find that any of the restaurants or businesses we went to were closed. We wound up having a private Kayak trip and Horseback ride simply because no one else had booked with us.
Right from the start, when I called you during a Northeastern blizzard, you made every step of our vacation planning easy. We could not be happier with our choice to book this trip with you.
Dave and I can't stop telling people how great our trip was and how much better this was than staying at the Westin .
My wife and I recently returned for our 3rd stay at Bismarkia, and as usual everything was terrific. Arriving on island & getting set up at the house has become old hat for us, so we didn't even need our Tammy (our property manager) to meet us there. Upon arrival, the villa was once again clean & spotless, and on top of that a number of interior upgrades had been completed since our last visit (summer 2015)......which brings us to the ONE aspect of the house that almost lead us to deduct one whole rating star.......
On our last visit in July 2015, Tammy stopped by for a visit and told us that, in addition to new couch upholstery & 2nd bedroom furniture, she had a brand new king sized bed & mattress on order for the master bedroom. As much as we were bummed to have missed out on the new bed in '15, we were excited because we knew we'd be back in March of 2016 and would enjoy it then. Little did we know, the new bed turned out to be the one thing that would have a huge, negative impact on our enjoyment of glorious St. John and its beautiful beaches......
.....that bed was just too %!$%#@! comfortable! Honestly, as much as we wanted to get up early to head to Hawksnest, Maho, or Cinnamon beaches, that bed would just not let us leave. ...I'm kidding, of course ;) All joking aside, the upgrades to the master bedroom, 2nd bedroom, and living room upholstery made this already excellent villa truly outstanding. We're talking about planning for our 4th visit in the summer of 2017! Thanks Tammy, see you again soon, no doubt!
My wife and I have enjoyed our second stay in consecutive years to St. John. We have rented with 340 Real Estate and with company owner Tammy Donnelly both times. I can't say enough about Tammy....professional, very attentive to our needs, planning and service before we arrived and assisted us in every way possible. This was our first time at Bismarkia and have already scheduled our next visit for December 2016. The home is absolutely gorgeous and having the pool is perfect. Everything we needed was there including a cooler to take to the beach. We will continue this relationship and our travel needs to the islands for many years to come....
Very clean, beautiful house with all the amenities to have a sanctuary in paradise. After a long day hiking, snorkeling, and adventure seeking, after the challenges of driving the excitingly winding roads of St. John, how wonderful to have a place of your own to rest. The pool and hot tub were put to good use almost every evening. The place has a satellite TV and DVD, but we never once were tempted to use it. The grounds, while not as polished as the house, were also beautiful hosting many beautiful and exotic flora. Deer visited the grounds frequently - and were not skittish. And I was surprised that the bugs were almost non-existent (at least around early January).
I only have positive things to say about this place: Lots of open space, an aesthetically appealing and practical house with lots of natural stone work, enough distance from neighbors, close to the National Park, a short hike to a great beach, a 12 minute drive to Cruz Bay.
And, finally, Tammy was exceptionally helpful, anticipating our needs and facilitating our arrival, meeting us at the ferry and ensuring our safe arrival at the villa.
Visited Bismarkia in late-Nov./early Dec., 2015. By far, the best villa rental we have experienced in St. John (4 trips). Exceptionally clean. Central air quiet and efficient. Kitchen was well stocked with quality utensils and appliances, and, a new grill for the patio. We cook a lot. Highlight of the visit was the pool. At the end of a day snorkelling and beaching, a relaxing dip in the pool finished the day with feelings vacations are meant to evoke. We would recommend this villa to everyone.
We are very appreciative of Tammy's efforts to attend to our needs and make our stay perfect.
We had such an amazing time. From first time we contacted her, Tammy was so helpful. She gave us advice on where some of the best beaches were, great snorkeling areas as well as information on the island in general. The house exceeded our expectations, it was clean, lots of amenities (pool, jacuzzi, grill) and the kitchen was top notch. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were spacious. There were four adults that stayed for the week, very comfortable for all four of us. We look forward to returning in the future!! Thanks Tammy!
the moment we arrived at the ferry, my wife and I were welcomed by Jennifer Doran. She was very professional, very calm and very knowledgable. walked us through the smallest details of the island in a short time. Arrived at the Villa only to realize that the place was way better than the photos posted. super clean. brand new stuff. Wish I can own a place similar to Bismarkia. I will highly recommend the place and if I shall visit st john again, I will consider staying here again. Thank you tammy and thank you a million jennifer.
Easy 10-15 minute drive from Cruz Bay which is port of entry and the majority of shops, restaurants and grocery stores are located. Bismarkia is located on a flat lot surrounded by grass and beautiful grounds, easy driveway and house access.
