About John Bauer

I'm 57 years old living in Southern California. My wife and I purchased this property about 9 years ago when we lived in Philadelphia and have enjoyed vacationing here. We take pride in our property and are responsive to any of our renters' needs. This property is fully-furnished and has all the amenities of home!

John Bauer purchased this condo in 2003

Why John Bauer chose Southside

After traveling all 50 States, this was the first time I felt that I was somewhere special. It was still under the control of the United States so the language, laws, homeland security, mail, telephone, Coast Guard and other government amenities that I was used to in the States are here. Yet there is a beauty of the land and especially the water that cannot be found anywhere in the 50 States. The people are extremely polite and always greet you with 'good morning', 'good afternoon' or 'good night', which is the custom of the island. If you use this greeting with them, you will always be treated with respect. The Island has a slow pace and it takes a day or so to completely unwind, then suddenly you are more relaxed than anywhere else I have been.

a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented in this area for over 10 years and this condo was the best. We shared it with another family and the layout allowed us to be together but also to be apart. Wi-Fi was a boost. The amenities of Bolongo Beach Resort, a short walk, helped to entertain our range of ages. Working with Mr. Bauer was uncomplicated and efficient.

A bit of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing vacation at the Sea Cliff property. The condo was exactly as pictured with plenty of room for everyone to relax. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed watching the sea turtles feeding right in front of us (a real highlight for our daughter). Everything you need to enjoy the island is included from a cooler and beach chairs to restaurant guides and maps. We made several meals in the well appointed kitchen as well as dinner at Iggies and Mims both just a 2 minute stroll from the condo. John sent all the info we needed ahead of our trip and communicated with us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. It was difficult to leave this bit of paradise but we look forward to returning again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay for a week was wonderful. Property was represented very well. It was very clean. John provided all the info needed and extra. I would definitely recommend this rental. We all loved the condo and everything at Bolongo Bay. We loved the dive shop and all three restaurants on the bay. We had a great time.

Had a wonderful stay in this immaculate condo. Very nicely laid out and comfortable - great accommodations for our family of 4. Easily could have held a few more. Close to a couple great restaurants; fabulous views both AM and PM. Well equipped kitchen; the place was very airy and well ventilated. Highly recommend!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I do not exaggerate when I say it was the best Caribbean vacation we ever had! We have been going back to Bolongo for almost ten years. We started by staying at the hotel; later when our twin girls grew and they were able to travel we stayed at the condos. We enjoyed very much all our vacations but the stay at the Sea-cliff villa was the best by far. Everything is perfect in this place: the condo's open layout, the tasteful furniture, the cleanliness, the comfortable beds, the completely equipped kitchen and last but not least the breathtaking views. To add to all of these is the beautiful Sea-Cliff swimming pool where one can swim and sun bathe in the sun during the day and watch unforgettable sun sets. The beach is a short and pleasant walk away. For our family, having the tennis courts also a few steps away from the condo is the most desirable thing. We used to have lunch at Iggies on the Bolongo Beach; this year we did the same but most times we brought lunch back to the condo and ate enjoying the view. The owner was extremely nice and willing to help us have this wonderful vacations. He was so quick to answer any questions and he sent us all the information about the condo, Bolongo, and all the enjoyable places. We all have the best memories of our April 2014 vacation. As usual, we made many trips to St.John we went to our favorite restaurants in Red Hook and Charlotte Amalia and we strolled around the jewelry stores; but at the end of the day we rushed back to our "home for ten days" to watch the sunset from the Sea Cliff pool. The evenings we spent most times at "Iggies" which has entertainment every night. Not only would I recommend this condo but we will go back as many times as possible.
