Notre Ciel Reviews

Description of Notre Ciel from St. John Villa Rental -- Nestled in the highlands of St. John, USVI, Villa Notre Ciel is named for its spectacular views. French for 'our sky' or 'our heaven', Notre Ciel sits atop Mamey Peak providing privacy and 'a little piece of heaven'. Notre Ciel overlooks Coral Bay to the east with spectacular views of the British Virgin Islands and the east-end of St. John. Each room has an incredible view. Come experience our view of paradise.

1. "It turns out that sometimes you can believe what you see on the Internet. Notre Ciel is every bit as beautiful - actually more so - than what is posted on the Internet. No picture could do justice to the view...or capture the complete serenity to be had looking at the morning sunrise."

2. "We have returned to vacation in the Virgin Islands with our kids many times...this was the best trip ever! We never tired of the views and appreciated the cool breezes after spending the day on the beach and snorkeling. We loved the pool, and the house had everything we needed."

3. "This place was incredible. It exceeded our expectations. You hardly know which way to look when standing on the balcony. It is magnificent. The kids loved the loft. The only negative is the pain of separation. WE WILL BE BACK!! "

4. "This is truly a special place. The sunrises are magnificent. We have been to St. John many times but this is our first time on the east side. This is much better than the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay."

5. "Our Honeymoon!! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to stay. We loved the views and the seclusion that Notre Ciel offers."

6. "We had such a wonderful week here. Our party consisted of my 81 year old father, my husband and three children ages 10, 7 and 6. The house was perfect for us. The views were so fantastic we really didn't feel like we had to go anywhere."

Rendezvous By The Sea Reviews

Description of Rendezvous By The Sea from St. John Villa Rental -- Rendezvous by the Sea Villa is a wonderful 3 bedroom 3½ bathroom villa perched on the water in the Boatman Point neighborhood on the southwest shore of St. John, USVI. The sunrise will wake you up every morning and if you’re lucky to be on island during a full moon, the moonrise is spectacular over Rendezvous Bay while eating a candlelit dinner on our screened veranda. Rendezvous by the Sea is a convenient 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay but far enough away to feel like you’re away from it all. Relax in the pool and look down at the reefs below you. You can actually see fish, turtles and stingrays from the pool deck – your own private aquarium! Follow the steps down to the beach below us and on a calm day you can snorkel or swim in the late morning/early afternoon. Return to the villa for a late lunch or early cocktails on the veranda. The lush grounds around the villa are filled with local flora: papaya trees, white and pink oleander, coconut palms, juniper and jasmine. There are fun mosaics and eclectic artwork and prints throughout the inside and outside of the house. This is a beach house at its finest!

Little slice of Heaven -- 8/13/2011
This beautiful getaway is just minutes from downtown. This was our second year staying there. You definitely will need to rent a vehicle and should do so ahead of time.
Nancy met us at the dock again and was a great help in getting everyone to the house along with our luggage. We had fresh bananas waiting for us when we got there. Last year we were met with a warm blueberry crisp.
The house was unchanged. They updated the railing around the pool and some of the other woodwork. The pool is clean and refreshing. The house is well taken care of. It has all the amenities needed... We cooked at the house for most meals rather than eating out since the restaurants are expensive. There is a washer and dryer there as well which can diminish the amount you pack by simply doing a load or two during your stay.
The views from the porch are simply amazing. This year we saw a whale just outside the bay. At night the waves wash on the shore a mere 50ft away.
During the day we took excursions to several beaches around the island... clear to the other end of the island is approx 25-35minutes. Two days we stayed at the house just to relax and snorkel from the beach there as well as lounge by the pool.
Overall, this is a wonderful vacation. There are some nice things to do and see on the island. But if you're someone who just wants to relax... this is the place to be.
Whats the downside...?? Difficult to say... the internet at the house is slow and there isnt any verizon cell phone coverage at the house. If you go to town and get exposed to St. Thomas, you can get service.

Our stay (and entire trip) was fantastic. The villa is absolutely beautiful - the perfect place to get away from it all for a while. I really appreciated our host's willingness to help by getting our jeep and picking us up even though we got in late. It was also great to have someone with local knowledge to answer our questions. I'd recommend this villa in a heartbeat.

Cortney -- Fort Wayne IN
This was a great location to stay on St John..The views were wonderful.
We were met coming off the ferry and the owner assisted in getting our bags over to the house as well as getting us to our rental car. There was warm blueberry coffeecake awaiting us at the house.
The house is wonderfully furnished and many small amenities were present as well.
We had an easy 2min walk down to the beach... the walk back up might be difficult for some. We were able to go snorkeling right off the beach and saw several rays and a huge eagle ray on the first day.
We had an excellent time and are planning on returning again this year.

Ann -- Chatham, MA
We have stayed at Rendezvous By The Sea several times and would not consider staying elsewhere. The location is outstanding, the views unparalleled. The villa and guest house are comfortable, clean and have charming Caribbean decor. Despite all that St. John has to offer visitors to do, we found ourselves preferring to spend many days simply relaxing at the villa. The screened porch is the perfect spot to dine, read a book, savor the breeze off the water, watch the sunrise or simply relax. We highly recommend Rendezvous By The Sea to anyone looking for an unforgettable vacation.

Our first stay in St John. The house was very convenient to everything in town. The view from the balcony was absolutely perfect! We slept very good at night with the cool breeze and the sounds of the ocean, best rest we've had fro awhile!

Just wanted to let you all know that we truly enjoyed our stay at Serenity Villa and St. John. We couldn't have asked for more from the house, and - as far as St. John - it was a wonderful experience.
We managed to swim and snorkel a few of the beaches, enjoyed the Carnival, took a hike through the park and simply spent the time care- free and relaxed (the latter was the intent of the vacation!). Evenings were spent cooking on the grill, lounging on the deck and just spending some family time and reading.
We are already talking about the possibilities of "going back to St. John."
Thank you for all your assistance and help with the planning.
James S.

Splendore Reviews

Description of Splendore from St. John Villa Rental -- Sculptured high on a magnificent bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Splendore can be your luxury retreat in paradise. Designed by internationally acclaimed St. John architect Rob Crane, A.I.A., this elegant home combines Antillian style with European charm. From the Campanile tower, to the stylish stonework, this contemporary estate is reminiscent of a renaissance villa. Privately secluded on Maria Bluff, Splendore has four wings that surround a sparkling pool and spa, with breathtaking ocean views from every room. Enter through a garden courtyard, into a foyer to behold the azure blue sea. Beneath one's feet is the cool feel of custom Italian tile throughout, even at poolside.

Hi Lisa,
Just want to thank you and your staff for our recent visit last week at Splendore. We had a wonderful time. The house was great and we really appreciated all the "extra" amenities you supplied. You run a very nice operation. This was our 5th time to St John and we had our best house and time yet. We love the St John experience and relaxation.
Thank you again.

We are back home in Massachusetts after a wonderful stay in St. John. My son cried as we packed to leave, a first for him! Truthfully, I think we all felt like crying. The island and the villa made a huge impression on all of us. Your efforts on our behalf were over the top, as well! We were hoping to reserve the villa for the same time next year!

We spent 8 glorious days at Splendore and it exceeded our expectations! The house is extremely well maintained and a wonderful set up for two couples traveling together. Everyone gets their own master suite with very beautiful garden shower. The kitchen is so well appointed, that cooking a few meals in was actually a treat, as we enjoyed dining on the verandah. Lisa is a gem, she fills you in on where everything is located in town that you will need for your stay.
During our stay we hired Capt. Bob to take us snorkeling and had a great day! Capt Bob has been on St. John for a long time and showed us a different view of the island along with some magnificent reefs. Lisa has all the contact information on Capt. Bob...would highly recommend him for a new view of St. John.
Everything was so great for our stay, we cannot wait to get back and would definitely stay at Splendore again.

Sundancer Villa has two private, air-conditioned, queen sized bedrooms with 2-baths and a third twin or king bedded loft reached by a spiral staircase.

This was our sixth time staying at Sundancer. We just love it! My wife and I started going to Sundancer in 2006. Over the years we have tried other villas on St John. We just keep coming back to Sundancer. We love the privacy. We love the location of the pool – just outside the door. We love the view of Fish Bay. We sit out on the deck every morning and eat our breakfast, and just look at the glorious view. We look forward to returning again to Sundancer.
Ted and Marilyn, Webster, NY

Thank you so much for sharing your Island home with us. The place had everything, views,pool, hot tub,hammock, birds. The location was perfect, as the South side is very quiet, but also close enough to Cruz Bay for those rides home after dinner and a few pain killers My wife Sue had just recently started a new job teaching and we found this place kind of last minute to fit her new schedule. It was just what the Dr. ordered, a great way to unwind. We would highly recommend Sundancer to one or two couples or a family. It is a great value and Sherri was great to work with. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Thanks again -- Tom and Sue Mayotte, Massachusetts

We had one of our most lovely vacations at the sundancer. What a wonderful house to stay in. Also, the owners and management were responsive and wonderful to deal with. Highly recommended!
Jonathan Levine, NJ

We enjoyed our Easter vacation at Sundancer. The views, location and privacy were perfect for our family of four. The house is a great base for traveling to all parts of the island. The pool and hot tub was a nice break from the sand and surf of the beaches on St. John’s. There are colorful flowers that surround the property and watching the birds every day was an added treat. Our daughters loved the loft!
Rule Family, Waynesboro, VA

The Sundancer is a very private home with wonderful views! You can see homes off in the distance but none are very close. We spent lots of time in the pool and the hot tub and never saw anyone...just a few lizards & deer. We enjoyed having speakers outside for the sound system. Looking out to the Caribbean Sea from the pool & the hot tub was amazing!! There were many days where we stayed at the home all day. Very relaxing vacation. Beautiful home! Thank you!

WOW - what a wonderful experience and a truly awesome vacation! My husband Dan & I had great time. Our friends Bob & Syd said we would love St. John.
Everything was exceptional & first class without being stuffy... We needed to relax and that is exactly what we did. Pool, gazebo, wet bar, guest rooms, kitchen - all was just fabulous. I was in the kitchen a lot; doing what I love most cooking and it felt just like being at home; however with the extraodinary view.
We are already looking at dates for next year to book & can't wait!
Thank you & all the staff for a memorable trip. We'll be clients for a lifetime!
Warm regards, Mike & Dan Armstrong
