Joy of Life Reviews

A little slice of paradise.

We just made our second trip to St John. Our first trip was long before the hurricanes. We loved the island the first time but visiting after the hurricanes made us love the island even more. They have done so much work, but you can still see signs of destruction. All of the locals thanked us repeatedly for coming to their island. They made us feel special and appreciated…. when they are the special ones. They all truly love their beautiful island paradise.

Karen and Jeff were wonderful hosts and the house is lovely. It has everything you need. And, if there is something you don’t have, Karen and Jeff will get it for you!

We will definitely be returning. I just hope it does not take us so long to get back!!

Thank you for an incredible vacation.

Views from the villa are unsurpassed, the villa is spotless, housekeeper knowledgable and very helpful.

The views from the second-floor villa are incredible. The sun rises over the multiple British Virgin Islands with Coral Bay in the foreground. The colors of the sea and islands change as the sun moves from east to west. Variety of boats and ships pass by and through.

The villa is perfectly clean and appears to be new. The workmanship reflects attention to detail and there is no visible wear.

The trade winds are constant and seem to be perfectly aligned to the villa.

Rented jeep at ST John Car Rental in Cruz Bay. Two grocery stores in Cruz Bay, a couple of smaller convenience stores in Coral Bay.

Beaches seem to have lost a lot of vegetation. Trunk Bay beach is still a favorite and you can rent chairs and restrooms/showers available. Facilities at Cinnamon and Maho not back in full operation.

Holly (one of the caretakers) was extremely helpful when our flight was delayed and showed us around the villa upon arrival. She is a local expert ready and willing to share all the information you might want/need.

If you want killer views, solitude, clean, modern, this is it. Highly recommend.
