Heather purchased this villa in 2012
The villa exudes simple elegance and truly gives you
the opportunity to 'be away from it all' but never to far from the action when you desire. It has nice sized rooms in a manageable package with all of the amenities of luxury and comfort.
Fun & Contentment was built to fully take advantage of the incredible views and privacy and the layout provides access to all living, relaxing, and parking areas on one level. It's location also affords it great breezes virtually all year round.
My 2nd stay at F&C and believe it or not, it was better. The upgrades and additions were perfect. New Hot Tub, new deck floor, new fence and new overhead terrace section were all top notch and well constructed. Heather and Joe are the nicest people and are willing to give great suggestions to make your stay better. Views from all sections of the deck are spectacular. House is in Pristine condition,(I'm a neat freak) and kitchen has everything you need, (new appliances) if making some of your meals at home. Thanks again Heather and Joe for being so helpful and sharing your home. Great experience
This was our fifth trip to St John, and by far the best place we’ve ever stayed at. The view over Coral bay and the east end to the British islands is spectacular. I managed to get up almost every day to catch the unforgettable sunrises. The bedrooms are well appointed and separated by the living room to provide privacy. We didn’t need the AC in the master bedroom because of the constant breeze. My brother and sister-in-law used the AC in the other bedroom and were quite comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need if you wish to cook your own meals. If not, it is a short drive to many fine local restaurants. Some have said the drive up to the place is rough but with a rental jeep (make no substitutions) it is quite manageable and will seem easier every day.
I can’t recommend Fun and Contentment enough. We hope to be back there next winter
We stayed for a week in the middle of December with my best friend and his wife. The house was perfect for us all. The mountaintop view was beyond belief, the pictures don't really do it justice. It was almost like looking out over the Grand Canyon for the first time. The full moon rising over the islands was spiritual. The outside deck was bigger than expected, plenty of room, with brand new comfortable furniture, and the new deck roof was perfect. The house, all concrete, seemed built to withstand a CAT5. The brand new hot tub was awesome and the pool clean and refreshing, like swimming in a spring. You can jam out on the deck using their excellent outdoor speakers. The kitchen has everything you could ever want or use. The bedrooms are big, airy, and oh the bed, the king size bed was so comfortable that I didn't want to get out of it. The bathrooms, the house in general, is very clean. Almost new. Didn't spend much time enjoying the central family room or watching TV, but they have it all and its comfy. Heather gave us access to the washer/dryer downstairs, which was nice. The only possible problem for some people might be the drive up to the house. It's not for the squeamish. Our 4 wheel drive Jeep handled it superbly and is highly recommended for getting around the island in general. The little supermarket below the house at the bottom of the hill was unbelievably stocked with almost everything you could ever need, and it was open from 7am to 10pm. This side of the island was just what we were looking for. It's much more chilled out and quieter than the western Cruz Bay side. I would highly recommend this house and would rent it again in an instant. In fact, good luck finding a better bang for your buck.
The view from the deck is superb! The house is clean and nice and well set up. The owners are nice, respond promptly and very helpful. I highly recommend the home. The common area does not have AC but with the fans it is ok. The drive up is challenging but easily doable with a jeep. When staying there, understand that being off the beaten path and away from the crowds means a longer and very windy drive to Cruz Bay to eat and shop if desired. As we love Mongoose Junction we did this alot. Beaches 15 min and Cruz bout 25 min. We found that we tended to stay out all day rather than repeat the drive. The beaches are amazing!!!! A must trip for beach lovers. Snorkeling great and easy! Did I say the view is as amazing as advertised?! We would stay at the house again! Thanks Heather and Jo!
Our small family of three stayed at Fun and Contentment for our second trip to St John...we are sure grateful for the experience! Every part of the house was spot on. The views are incredible, the breeze is amazing, the beds are awesome and the pool is a great addition. Heather and Joe were very helpful answering any questions we had about the property and the area. I only wish we had not already booked our Christmas rental before we found this place!
In a word, spectacular. This was our first trip to St. John, and my husband and I stayed at Fun and Contentment, and we loved it. On the inside, the home itself was very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. However, we spent as much time as possible on the expansive deck which provided breathtaking views of the East End, Tortola and other BVI as observed from the pool, patio table (breakfast, dinner), sofas (great for star gazing at night) or lounge chairs. We were also supplied with provisions for excursions such as a cooler, beach towels and beach chairs. The location up on the mountain allowed us to forego the use of the a/c since the trade winds kept us cool at night.
We had close proximity to fantastic restaurants (Aqua Bistro, Indigo Blues, Miss Lucy’s) as well as many beaches. Joe and Heather were nice and very accessible for questions and offered great dining and day trip suggestions. Yes, four wheel drive is a must, but it's well worth the drive. ;)
Thank you so much!
Dave and Terri
