About Donna Whitman
We built this home in 2007 and in 2008 we began renting. We live in New Jersey and try to get to St John at least 10 weeks a year. We have 3 daughters and 7 grand children who love this Island almost as much as we do. We hope you feel as comfortable in our Villa as we do.
Donna Whitman purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Donna Whitman chose Point Rendezvous
Our Villa is one of a kind and comes from our love and appreciation for this beautiful island! The History of our villa’s name is quite romantic. Before we built this home we traveled to the island time after time. It’s beauty and peace of mind kept enticing us back. Until one day when we were sitting on the beach looking at the breathtaking scenery, listening to the crashing of the waves and enjoying the hot sun beating down on us! That day my husband made a promise to me that one day we would have our own home on St John. Well needless to say he kept his promise and we now have our own little piece of paradise that we would love to share with you!!!!

Wonderful property for a family vacation ! Great service and location!
We enjoyed our stay in Saint John and this home was the reason! We had a family of 6 adults and one two year old for over a week the house was
clean, large and modern . The sunrise was spectacular in the morning but no sunsets because you are on a mountain side . The view of the bay is lovely from the pool and the property manager Dave was friendly and attentive . We had some issues with wireless connectivity and had a plumbing issue while there which was resolved as soon As a plumber was available ( water pump needed to be replaced ) . We were greeted with delicious goodies , a clean pool and a cool air conditioned
House . Appliances were modern in the kitchen as well as bathrooms and laundry . Dave Met us at the ferry and drove us to the property in a rain storm
And we were grateful !! The ac is wonderful but fresh air was an easy option with the big doors all
Round with screens . I would recommend signing up for a housekeeping service option if you stay a week as sand and jungle leaves make their way in with many day trips to the beach. The location allowed for trade winds which made insects minimal. Driveway was adequate for two Jeep’s but is a bit steep to walk down for seniors and little ones . There are Lots of stairs on The property so be ready for that but they were doable ! The sweet Toddler with us loved the pool and the railings on porches were very adequate for his safety ! . A gate was required at the staircase at the main level but it was hard to find one to fit at local
Rental places . Ship a larger one if possible
For your stay if you have little ones .
Location was convenient to Cruz bay shops and restaurants.
Amazing stay at Promises Kept!
Promises kept was an amazing villa!!! Everything about the villa was perfect. The property manager David made the entire process seem less. He took care of helping with bags, groceries, getting some sand toys for my daughter and even left us a great charcuterie platter for us. Amazing stay at Promises kept!
This home is Amazing!! Zero damage
This home was wonderful with million dollar views and 4 master suites. Our family and friends enjoyed every second. Pool was also great and my 6 year old was in it whenever we were home. The home was also very easy to get to. In Saint John some of the homes are more difficult to find. I would definitely recommend to families with kids or four couples. The rooms were all amazing as well as the bathrooms! We would definitely stay at Promises Kept again!
Beautiful Villa, A Few Service Issues
Promises Kept is a relatively new villa with spectacular views of Rendezvous and Fish Bays. It's an easy 15 minutes from Cruz Bay and close to the Rt. 104 cut-off for the East End. Very well appointed, with central air conditioning throughout, and very nice king bedrooms, all with large en suite bathrooms. Large kitchen with an island is very well-appointed, and the furniture The infinity pool and deck are great for relaxing at the end of the day.
Pros: Location, the interior of the villa, central air, high end appliances, views.
Cons: The only con was issues we had with hot water and getting the manager to respond. It was late season and Mark, the property manager was out of town. While he tried to deal with things from afar, his folks on the island were slow in finally getting things resolved. The sound system also was not working and could not be fixed.
Overall: This is a beatiful place that the owners have invested in and maintained to a high standard, as reflected by the cost of the rental. I think our issues were probably an anomoly, but the bottom line is they shouldn't happen at this price.
It was unfortunate that the stereo amplifier blew out at the villa . We sent a technician over promptly when we founf out it was not working and he did tell us the amp was shot but here was a Bose system there to play music that he hooked up. .
The hot water is propane heated and the 100 lb tank ran out . I ordered (2) 100 lb tanks 2 weeks before I left of a week vacation and was told by Paradise gas before I left they were delivered . Unfortunately they were not. delivered. I called Maint from the states and had him hook up a temporary 20 lb tank as we can only get 100 Lb tanks delivered from the gas company on St. John . I also called the guest from the states a few times to keep him updated . .
I had employees in the office but apparently received the messages late as they already left. Ironically this was the only villa rented when I was gone for a week and had these issues with a luxury villa 6 years old that I could have dealt with them more promptly.
My apologies again for the inconvenience to the guests who were quite understanding and very nice about these events . MS
Beautiful Villa with Terrific View
Villa Promises Kept is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to relax and enjoy the island. We have been to St. John in the past and highly recommend Villa Promises Kept. We were greeted by Marsha at the car ferry and she provided local information that helped us throughout the week. Once arriving at Promises Kept Marsha walked us through the villa and answered any of our questions. Each of the 4 bedrooms has its own bathroom suite which makes it nice for everyone. We took advantage of the kitchen and grill and ate our meals on the veranda each morning and night. The pool is positioned beautifully overlooking the bay. There were beach chairs for renters to use when traveling to the beaches. Traveling with 3 teenagers and 3 adults can be challenging but not on this trip between the pool, beach and boardgames played each night it was a relaxing trip. Marc and Marsha (managers) were very attentive from the first contact booking the villa to our last day making sure we were all set to return home. The Villa was beautiful and well maintained. Villa Promises Kept is located about 5 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from Trunk Bay.
