Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 out of 5
After first arriving in St. John for the first time we were blown away by the scenery. After meeting Brian at the ferry, who kindly greeted us, look us grocery shopping and to pick up our rental car. We followed Brian back to the house which at first we thought the road leading up was never going to get us there. Then, we arrived and it was the most beautiful place! We loved the privacy, the views and of course cooking dinner on the grill almost everynight. We would return to this house 100 times over again. It was not buggy and we loved using the hot tub at night after dinner with a rum punch in hand. The accommodations for daily beach lounging and snorkeling was just icing on the cake. Plenty of towels, snorkel gear options, coolers and chairs. We had the time of our lives visiting all the beaches and swimming with all the fish and sea turtles. We would wake up every morning to a beautiful sunrise shinning in through our bedroom screen doors. Most relaxing and mind soothing vacation we needed after a long winter in Maine. We can't wait to rent this house again. If you don't mind driving a mile or two up the half paved, half dirt road to get to your dream vacation destination, this is the place for you. Our pick up from the airport in St Thomas was arranged for us to and from and we never had to worry about planning our taxi service. Someone was always there to meet us with a welcome sign. I hope the next couple can enjoy this place as much as we did. If your looking for a laid back and relaxing tropical getaway, this is it!!!!

Windward Side

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is absolutely beautiful! The views from every window are outstanding and we especially loved the outdoor shower. The property is very clean and very private...a perfect spot. Susan & Diane are great and make sure everything goes smoothly from the pick up at the airport, car rental and meet and greet. I highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a luxurious spot to relax. We will definitely rent here again and again.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I recently returned from a week at Windwardside Main House. Because of the reviews we had read we had very high expectations, but the property actually exceeded those high expectations. For starters, Susan's team was very professional and excellent to deal with. The property itself is private, clean and well maintained and has lovely furnishings and landscaping and wonderful views. In a word - romantic. We spent our days exploring the beautiful island of St. John, but at the end of each day we looked forward to returning to our retreat on the mountainside. I highly recommend this property.

Even better second time around!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the small guesthouse two years ago for our honeymoon, and couldn't wait to come back. This time we stayed in the main house and once again are counting the days until our return. Susan and her team leave nothing out...every detail is covered from the beautiful furnishings to providing us with all the information we needed for getting to and around the island. We loved it so much we recommended it to some friends who stayed there a few weeks before us. We went from there to Tortola, which was nice, but it wasn't the same because now we are spoiled!

Wonderful place to stay in St. John

  • 5 out of 5
We can't say enough good things about our stay at Windwardside Main House. You always wonder when you rent a place to stay if it will look as good as the pictures. Well, this place was even better than we could have imagined from the pictures. The customer service provided by Diane and Fitz throughout this process (from making the reservation, through the day we left) was superb. Fitz met us at the ferry, took us to pick up our rental car, took us to the grocery store and then to the house (and was very patient while we gathered our goods at the store). Diane checked on us after a couple of days to ensure we didn't have any questions or need anything. I've never had quite an experience like that when renting a property on vacation. The house had all the necessities for cooking, had beach items (towels, chairs, coolers and snorkeling gear), was quiet, and had spectacular views. The grounds were beautifully planted, and we could sit on the porch in the morning with our coffee, taking in the view and watching all the birds. We were concerned about renting a place that didn't have air conditioning in the bedroom, but we quickly got use to it, and the ceiling fan and breezes through the screened doors and windows made it very pleasant (an added plus to having no glass windows was being able to listen to the beautiful symphony of the night creatures..it was wonderful!). Some might think the drive up to the house is a bit daunting, but after a couple of times doing it, you become a pro. We were sad to leave such a beautiful place, but hope to be back very soon, and will definitely plan on staying here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Donna,

Thanks for staying with us and for the lovely review. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the chorus of tree frogs and crickets. Even after thirty years on St. John I still love those sounds. I will pass your kind words on to Diane and Fitz.

Perfect Villa/ Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 out of 5
If you love to drive around in a Jeep and spend your days in the water snorkeling and swimming, you will love St. John and Windwardside could not have been more perfect. The description is very accurate and it is even more spacious and has more amenities than we expected. The property was clean and has a nicely stocked kitchen. The hot tub is great for relaxing with a drink after a long day of swimming and it has a great view of Coral Bay. Also, there is a gas grill so you can cut back on restaurant expenses (typical price for dinner for two with 1-2 drinks easily exceeds 60 bucks). The owner's customer service was flawless and extremely quick with communication. The island intro with Brian was completely on-point and he provided great insight into how to get the most out of your stay for what type of vacation you are seeking. He probably chatted with us for an hour or more with a map and helped guide us to more casually local type restaurants and great snorkeling spots that aren't overhyped (instead of Trunk Bay, go to Jumbie). He also put us into contact with the boat Pirate's Penny for the obligatory boat trip to BVI and snorkeling (great trip and great crew... 10 person boat instead of the 50 person hoards on the booze cruise). Also, there were several great guidebooks in the living room for trails and snorkeling. We cannot wait to refer our friends and family to Windwardside and hopefully they will be bringing us back with them.
best beaches for snorkeling: Salt Pond Bay/ Waterlemon Key/ Brown's Bay/ Jumbie Beach
best beaches for swimming/ playing in water: Francis Bay/ Jumbie Beach
favorite hike: Ram's Head
favorite restaurants: Hercule's (Cruz Bay Carribbean/ Curried Chicken platter and pates are good... most affordable restaurant of the trip)
Pink Corner (Coral Bay Carribbean/ great local food)
Skinny Legs (Coral Bay Burgers/ yeah, it's burgers, but they are good ones and this is the place if you want to party in Coral Bay)
Donkey Diner (breakfast food is good/ never tried pizza)
Aqua Bistro (good food at reasonable (for St. John) prices
Miss Lucy's (Coral Bay... only had the conch fritters as meal, but they are easily the best on the island... we had them at several places that were not great)
Rhumb Lines in Cruz Bay if you're craving Thai
really, the food on most of the island is above average and there is no fast food, so at least you can see where restaurants are so expensive
