Best location! An easy walk to town, and the short hill on the way made me feel better about all the good food and drinks I had been enjoying all week. My friend and I stayed in Dolphina, which was perfect for the 2 of us but would also be nice for up to two couples. Luckily she doesn't like... More

We traveled to St John in March 2016 and rented Azul la Mer for 2 weeks. We were met at the ferry by Dena and taken to the local grocery store for shopping. I was immediately disappointed by the lack of sunlight coming into this villa. It was dull, dingy and dark. We were not inside 10 minutes and I... More

Hello there, We are also disappointed that you did not enjoy the pool suite as much as you would have liked and apologize for the torrential rains that caused the leak. Luckily, it does not pour that hard all day that often however it does make it difficult to find the source of a leak. Our property managers will work... More

Location is ideal. Just outside of Cruz Bay, which we walked to every day. Very convenient, with no issue of parking. Tucked away and a nice comfortable villa.

A tropical, private paradise of Caribbean styled, fully equipped, rental villa suites located in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to Cruz Bay where most of the activities, restaurants and shopping are located and approximately 100 steps to a nice snorkeling beach so renting a car is optional.

All the villa suites are fully furnished along with flat screened TVs and WiFi, in addition to kitchens that come complete with: refridgerator, gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender and all kitchenware and utensils. The villa also provides beach chairs, beach towels, all linens, coolers, hair dryers, as well as many other amenities and a triple filter water system. From the moment our guests arrive at the St. John ferry dock, they are transported to a tropical vacation paradise with incredible natural beauty, beaches, views, watersports and delicious restaurants. A wonderful management team, combined with immaculate, comfortable and affordable accommodations that often become one's "island home away from home" make for an experience to be cherished forever! ... more   less
