About James & Tara Overton
He was born in South Dakota. At a young age his parents introduced him to Virgin Islands on a family vacation trip. He fell in love with Caribbean blue water and the serenity of the islands. He have lived on all three islands for 31 years. He chose St. John to be his home as the island optimized what he had always dreamed about living in a tropical island with beautiful white sand beach, tradewind breezes and amazing views. He was one of the general contractors to joined and completed Western hotel resort in St. John and Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas. He had fulfilled his dream by building Mandavilla Properties (Alexandra Cottage, Ylang Ylang, Ginger Thomas, Mandavilla Rose and Mandavilla). James met Tara in Charleston, SC. They fell in love and together they personally operate these properties and share this beautiful piece of island with you.

Beautiful cottage with sweeping views of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. Close to town but has a relaxing, secluded feel. Morning coffee as well as stunning sunset views on the deck, the perfect way to start and end your day. Tara made the entire process very easy, it’s clear she truly cares about your experience. We will definitely book again!
Off the beaten track was this delightful cottage with so many lovely details. Wish we could have spent more time!
Another Wonderful 3 Weeks at Alexandra Cottage
My wife & I returned March 7th 2019 from another 3 wonderful weeks at Alexandra Cottage. The Island infrastructure has progressed significantly from last year. Power, Internet, and telephone service has been restored as well as a major clean up at the many beautiful beaches.
Jim & Tara are exceptional hosts and have put incredible thought and money into updating their property. Beautiful flowers and shrubs have been re-planted and are meticulously cared for by a wonderful gardener. The beautiful surroundings are further enhanced by a spectacular view of the harbor. Having breakfast on the deck while watching sailboats and ferries was a daily treat that we both enjoyed.
I highly recommend any property that is owned and managed by Jim & Tara. They truly care for their guests and are genuinely great people.
Awesome for two people!
View is absolutely stunning! Out of the way place but accessible to town by walking down the hill. Problem is take a taxi back at night. Paving is incomplete. No sidewalks until you get all the way to town. Share a pool with some other units. Pool is great as are the lounge chairs. The bed is super comfortable.
It was my pleasure to meet you. Alexandra cottage location is secluded with one of the best view on the island and all the amenities you need during your stay with us. We are happy you have enjoyed all of the above. We are working to earn your 5 stars and had the road filled and smooth out so it would be more enjoyable for a short walk to town a few days after you departed. We looking forward to see you in your return visit to the island.
Fantastic view of Cruz Bay
The place was clean. Our favorite parts were the outdoor shower and the view from the bed and patio. Tara was very responsive and gave us some great advice about snorkeling spots on St. John including Waterlemon Cay which turned out to be the best snorkeling of our entire trip. Thanks Tara!
perfect 10 days at Alexandra cottage
We just returned from Alexandra cottage last week. Finding great accomodations for just 2 people in St. John is always challenging. this property exceeded our expectations. It had everything we needed to cook a few meals, the bed was super comfortable, great water pressure and you can't beat the location and the view. Access to the bigger pool of Mandeville properties made this extra sweet. We can't wait to return! any of the properties
that are owned by Mandavilla are just wonderful! you can find them inat stjohnvirginislands.
75% of St John island is National Park Reserve. You will find many beautiful natural beaches, ruin and hiking trails.
