We wanted to get a house owned and operated by someone on the island so that we could support rebuilding after the hurricanes. Curtis and Myrtle are lifelong residents whose personal home was destroyed, but they were wonderful hosts to our family. Curtis promptly helped with my myriad of requests before we arrived, purchased groceries for us (don't forget the Cruzan Rum!) so we could have a quick dinner for our kids after a long day of travel, and promptly addressed the minor issues with the house. He and Myrtle took us out on their pristine boat to the BVI one day, even playing with our young children throughout the day.
The house itself was immaculate, nicely decorated, and well stocked with everything we needed. The beds are comfortable (and I'm picky), the outdoor showers were a treat, and the views were glorious. The construction noise at the Westin (should be open in Jan 2019!) was nominal. I was a bit concerned that it wasn't going to be a kid-friendly house for my 2- and 5-year old kids, but the bedroom configuration was great (both near each other via interior stairwell) and we rented some toys from Island Baby, so we were all set! There was generally a steady breeze keeping the house temperate, but we did use the A/C in the bedrooms at night.
We were there for 12 days and will certainly be back. The only improvements I would love to see would be more shade over the hammock and the outdoor dining table.
Thank you Curtis and Myrtle!
Stayed at the Villa Villekula and this property totally exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of room for our family of 10 to spread out between the two levels. Our villa had all the comforts of home, was well equipped and when any need arose Nanci was there to assist. There were beach towels, chairs and coolers for our trips to the lovely beaches and parking for three vehicles. We enjoyed the swimming pool, grilling out in the afternoons and the beautiful views of Great Cruz Bay. There was a separate deck for grilling off the main level, table and chairs and lounge chairs. The pool was on a separate level, was nice and also had plenty of seating for everyone to enjoy. We spent several afternoons gathering on the back deck enjoying the beautiful view. This Villa is in a great location, convenient to town, restaurants and shopping. Upon our departure, I noticed I was missing an earring and alerted Nanci. A few hours later Nanci contacted me to let me know the cleaning crew had found my earring and would be mailing it back to me in the States. I can’t say enough good things about this property and the people that manage and care for it. I would definitely recommend this property to others. Thank you for a contributing to another wonderful experience at St John.
