Wonderful place to stay in St. John
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.
