An amazing time

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Meritage Great house for 8 days and had a wonderful time. We are in love with St. John. Every morning we cooked breakfast and then set out for the beach. We would either go out for dinner or grill out on the deck. The view from the house is beautiful! We found the house to be very cozy and comfortable and took full advantage of the pool and hot tub. The owners were very nice and we would recommend this place to friends. We might try to come back next summer with friends.

Just paradise

  • 5 out of 5
An amazingly picturesque villa with a view of the Caribbean and the islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas. Witnessed the lovely sunset views from the relaxing patios and decks. Unwind on the inviting mini pool and Jacuzzi, lying and sunbathing in the hammock or by the garden. Beautifully ornate bedrooms with complete amenities. Situated on a hillside, a view down are tourist attractions to wander around. The famous nude beach is just a few steps away. Marvelous vacation!

Great House

  • 4 out of 5
The house is exactly as it states on the website. It is in a great location with a super view both morning and evening. The property could use some updating but is exactly as the pictures show. You will need to rent a car to get around. It is expensive to take a taxi around town. We found that Trunk Bay had the best beach. If you plan on doing your own cooking you should bring storage(ziploc bags) or some type of wrap for leftovers. There are limited utensils but enough to get by. We stayed for 9 days and there was only one garbage bag supplied. You also need to take your own trash to the dumpster down the road. We brought supplies/food from the states. As expected food from grocery store was very expensive. A must is to visit the Tourist Trap Restaurant. It was excellent!!! All-in-all would recommend for large group or families.

Fantastic Time Away, Spent Here!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow!

What a great experience. We felt that we were all alone in paradise because the property has so much privacy, but in reality, it is only 3 minutes from downtown!!!

We spent time cooking in the more than adequate kitchen, relaxing on all of the multiple decks, splashing in the pool and the hot tub, listening to great music, and just being able to fully remove ourselves from the stress of our tread mill lives...

Chris, one of the owners told us about Captain Greg and how to charter his sail boat for a whole day of fun. He mentioned that we may want to explore some of the other nearby Islands, which we did; and recommended a place to rent a car and also a few restaurants that were absolutely excellent!

We have been to the Island many times in the past, but had not spent time in such a lovely home away from home! We would certainly recommend this property, and thought that it is at the top of the list. Have fun there!

Chris has us in his books again for next year.

Loved the Meritage House! Exactly as Advertised!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week over Christmas at the Meritage House. The house was just as described on the web site and the pictures were up to date. The house was extremely clean, well maintained and had every amenity we needed; no need to bring anything but your bathing suit. Not luxurious - but had a great “island feel."

We loved the set-up of the house; the main living area was on the top floor and all the bedrooms were below and each bedroom had its own bath. That allowed for everyone to have privacy, peace and quiet if they needed it.

Having Sinbad (the property manager) was a plus as well. He picked us from the Ferry in Hart Bay, and gave us a quick tour of everything we'd need to know around town - grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Nothing went wrong during out trip, but we knew that if anything did, he was there to help.

The location was extremely convenient; a five minute drive to town (Hart Bay) and 15-20 minute drive to the most beauitful beaches in the world (in particular, the North Shore beaches).

We would not hesitate to book this house again when we return to St. John’s!

Owner's Response: Meg,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Meritage Great House. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and look forward to coming back again. We try hard as a team between myself (owner), Sinbad (manager), and Allana ( housekeeper) to cover all the bases to make sure everything is in tip top shape for your vacation. We appreciate you writing about your experience to give future guest something to go by when they view the web site.

Absolutely A Fantastic House And Week On St. John

  • 5 out of 5
SinBAD,
I can't thank you enough for a great week on St.John. Like I wrote on the gas can, we have rented several houses in the carribean, but none of them had SinBAD! The welcoming to the home, the thorough explanation of the home, directions to gas and food, recommendations on what to do, and the entertainment! All of that takes the guesswork out of it for us and lets us concentrate on enjoying our vacation! It was all fantastic and made our week that much more enjoyable. Both of my kids have talked more about SinBAD and their bracelets than what they did on St. John! I have already spoken with Chris Rosbrook about booking another week next June.
Thanks again for everything you did and making our group feel so welcome!

Owner's Response: Chris Brown and Family,
I would like to thank you for taking the time to relate your experience at Meritage Great House with folks who are considering it for there family as a place to stay while vacationing on St.John. It is our intention to have all our guest leave with the same satisfaction you have and hopefully even have them as a returning guest as your family is planning on doing. Again thank you for your kind remarks and you are so right that we are lucky enough to have one of St.John's treasures Sinbad to manage our house.
Regards,
Chris Rosbrook
