Fourth Family visit to St John

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in the Still Waters Villa and it totally met all our expectations upon our arrival, and most of all, throughout the week. On this trip, only 5 of us (3 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 7) could get away for the week. It was the perfect space for this trip. The house has incredible ocean views of two harbors and the facility is beautifully maintained The large open space lay-out with a commercial kitchen, beautiful furniture in the living and dining area, outdoor deck, and pool, all on the same level, provided a very beautiful experience. The 2 bedrooms are outstanding and the loft for the kids proved to be a highlight. The facility is better than advertised! No hurricane damage and fully air-conditioned. A short 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay for shopping, etc. makes this villa an outstanding option. We would highly recommend this property to anyone. The owners (Ann Marie and Bob), who live on St. John, were always available and helpful. We will be back!!

Amazing Vacation & Villa

  • 5 of 5

Still Waters is a wonderful villa, great location, amazing views and the owners are extremely nice and helpful. We spent 8 days here, just got back yesterday and I miss it already.

The location is close to Cruz Bay & the market. It is very private. If you plan on cooking, the villa is equipped with high end appliances, a new weber grill & tons of pots and pans. We mostly ate out, but the kitchen is well equipped. There are tons of beach towels, coolers, linens and the beds are very comfortable. The AC worked perfectly, and if you want to opt for no AC there are plenty of sliding doors and fans to keep the island breezes going through the house. It is also extremely clean and well maintained. Everything you look for in a vacation rental.

We are a family of four, 2 adults and 2 boys - my youngest slept in the back bedroom (we nicknamed this room the sleeping cave - darkest part of the house and if you shut the door at night the AC kept it very cool) and my older teenage son loved his own space up in the loft. We had one of the best vacations of our lives.

Still Water Villa - JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our 2nd trip to St. John & our first house rental. We absolutely loved Still Water Villa & all decided that a house rental on St. John beats staying in a hotel. And we would definitely try and rent Still Water Villa again. Ann Marie & Bob (house owners) were both super nice and really wanted our stay to be perfect. The house was very clean, kitchen nice and well appointed, awesome mattresses & good quality sheets, great views, nice pool. The list goes on. I really cannot think of a negative....only wish we had stayed a little longer. And if you are wondering about the bedroom situation, our family of 5 consists of mom/dad & 3 young adult daughters. One daughter stayed in the loft bedroom & said it felt private enough & quiet. She shared a bathroom with the other 2 girls who had a king size bed with a hall bathroom next to it & that worked out just fine. My husband & I had the "master bedroom" with a private bathroom. Still Water Villa - JUST PERFECT

Privacy, great location and perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is very clean and has the extras you need - beach chairs, coolers and plenty of towels. We enjoyed our close proximity to Cruz Bay but loved the privacy of the villa. Views are very nice and the awnings added extra time outside when the sun was too hot or during a light rain. The Master bed is comfortable which there is nothing worse than sleeping on a bad mattress...especially on vacation. Other key amenities were the patio lounge chairs provided the perfect spot for hours of reading, the wireless speaker was nice to Bluetooth our playlists, the ice maker provided a limitless amount to keep our evening beverages cool and it was nice to know we had a generator in the event of a power outage. Power went out twice in Cruz Bay while out to dinner and while we anticipated calling Bob to set up the generator upon returning, power was never lost.

The owners, Bob and Ann Marie, made everything seamless from meeting us at the ferry to pointing out the grocery stores. I've read many of the reviews prior to booking and my only hesitation with initially booking this villa was payment via check directly to the owners tends to make me nervous but I assure you that they are reputable folks and own a very well respected business on the island called Low Key Dive Shop. Also, when speaking with local business owners around town, when asked where I was staying, upon saying, "Still Waters", more than not, the locals would say, "Bob and Ann Marie's" place.

The description and photos of the villa are what to expect. My kids (ages, 13, 11 and 9) and husband agree that we would definitely stay at Still Waters again!!

Our Second Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Still Waters Villa and it was just as wonderful as the first. The views, open floor plan and location are all excellent. The house is well equipped and fit our family of five easily. Anne Marie and Bob were extremely responsive both leading up to the trip, as well as during our stay. The house is very comfortable and quickly feels like home. The views are so relaxing and beautiful, we spent a lot of time just laying in the lounge chairs looking out at the sea while our kids played in the pool. The location is very convenient to Cruz Bay, a ten minute drive or less, and even closer to the Starfish market, which we visited daily because we would eat many of our meals at Still Waters. If you do venture out, we highly recommend Beach Bar for Happy Hour as it sits on the beach in downtown Cruz Bay and is a great place to bring kids. And for dinner, we loved both The Longboard in Cruz Bay and Zo Zo's at Caneel Bay ($$$$) more than lived up to it's reputation. Our favaorite beaches to visit on this stay were Francis Bay, Jumbie (get there early to get one of the five parking spots), and Little Lemshur Bay (on other side of island by Coral Bay and you need an SUV to drive the last half mile). Hope you have a wonderful stay.
