Beautiful little getaway!
Patty's place is breathtaking! We arrived at St John and was greeted by Patty at the ferry. She has accommodated us in every way possible with supplies, fruit baskett with cheese, and cupcakes at the end of our stay. The grocery stores
was near as well as the restaurants, and enjoyed every minute of it. We have also toured outside to the BVI's and that was a wonderful experience to see. We will be back and will bring our children with us. I highly recommend this place! Thank you!!
St John Visit
My wife and I vacationed with another couple and stayed at “Patty M’s Place” for 6 nights. From the very moment I booked the property, Patty was very diligent in answering my questions and communicating through online messaging.
When we arrived in St John, she met us at the ferry dock with a welcome sign and waited for us to compete our Jeep rental and grocery shopping so she could lead us to the property.
The property was only a few minutes from town and very clean. It has a fantastic view of the island and bay from the day room. Patty supplied us with water, coffee, spices, fruit trays, and all the other small things that could have been easily forgotten. This included beach towels, coolers, and snorkeling equipment. Our entire stay was very pleasant. Towards the end of our visit Patty checked in with us and brought chocolate muffins.
I highly recommend visiting St John and staying at “Patty M’s Place.” You’ll be glad you did.
We loved it!
Patty's place has an amazing view that can't be beat. The view aside, the home was very clean and well-appointed with anything you could need. Fully-equipped kitchen, lots of beach towels, chairs, snorkeling gear, beach toys, toiletries, super clean grill, parking was easy, and the unit was spacious.
Patty was very generous and provided us with fruit, cheese, crackers, OJ, water, coffee, muffins, and many spices to use for cooking.
The location is perfect to Cruz Bay and the beautiful beaches. The hills to and from the apartment to Cruz Bay are small and few compared to the rest of the island; easy to manage. We say this for any first-time St John visitors. She also provided us with car rental info, restaurants, shops, beaches and anything you might need to make your visit smooth.
We will be back! Thank you, Patty, for helping to make our stay easy and relaxing.
Great views but Bed bug issues
The apartment has great views and everything was as described. The owner, Patty, seemed to be very nice and welcoming until we alerted her about having bed bug issues. At first she met us at the ferry to show us the property and left a generous fruit basket in the fridge for us. On the last day she sent us a message that felt like she was pushing us to check out as early as possible in the morning, she didn’t even try to remind us what the check out time was. Then we alerted her about the bed bug bites that we received during our stay and she didn’t respond to our message. We did not ask for money back or anything, just wanted to alert her about the issue out of courtesy to the next visitors and we were very shocked that she didn’t respond at all.
Well after five years doing a vacation rental and 119 excellent and no negative reviews finally got one of these.
.First let’s get the facts straight.
I need to point out I had to give these guests a negative review based on the condition in which they left the apartment. Sink overflowing with dirty dishes, bags of trash left in apartment, food and dirt on floor which apparently hadn’t even been swept and both beds full of sand. Child or someone urinated in the bed and wet bedding never removed and changed.
Informed they were supposedly bitten by bugs very late the last evening of their stay. Informed they were bitten by bugs AFTER a face to face meeting with me earlier this same last night when I was told by guest that everything was fine. Informed they were bitten by bugs AFTER not before they received my standard “goodby” text sent to all my guests which they found somehow offensive. Supposedly slept in a bed with bed bugs three nights without informing owner until very late the fourth night when they again slept in a bed with bed bugs. Really?
When I first started out years ago was warned by an experienced host about the rare scammer (maybe 1-2% of guests) who will claim your place “has bugs” with the hope you will panic in fear of a terrible review and give them their money back. Here is how was told they would act.
Upon arrival will never make any complimentary comments but instead look for things to criticize and complain about no matter how silly, petty or ridiculous. Will not tell you anything about “bugs” until the last minute when checking out so you have no time to have a professional inspection to prove there are no bugs. Was also advised NOT to give them money since scammers communicate with each other and you could end up with more of them on your doorstep.
While they fit the above pattern they could very well have been bitten. If you get a lot of beach sand in your bed along with sand flea eggs you could be in for a very rough night and not the kind when you wake up satisfied with a smile on your face.
Lastly I want to point out the guests before and the guests who arrived the same day they left both wrote glowing five star reviews with no complaint of bugs. Neither has any of the 40+ other parties that used the same apartment over the last year complained of bugs.
So the slept in a bed with bed bugs for four nights? Really? I don't know about you but I'd be out the door, if nothing else, sleeping under a palm tree!
Amazing Stay, Amazing hostess!
We just spent one week in St.John. We found the perfect place to stay for our family of 6. The home has all the amenities you would need for fun times at the beautiful beaches. Patty Mahoney met us at the ferry, led us to the home and showed us around. She was always available for any questions we had, very accommodating and just plain wonderful!
Wonderful quiet vacation for our family!
We stayed in Patty's rental in February 2019. It was a great fit for our family (2 adults, 4 kids). We loved the views, and enjoyed watching the cruise ships at night. Patty was incredibly accommodating, and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The unit was stocked with everything we needed: cooking utensils, beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys, gas grill, etc. It's also in a great location - near groceries and restaurants, and an easy drive to all the north shore beaches. We were so sad to leave, and would definitely stay here again the next time we are fortunate enough to come to St. John.
St John has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world that have been preserved as a National Park (3/4 of island is a National Park).
