About dave rather

We are a family of six with small children. We live in Baltimore, MD and own a restaurant called Mother's. We come to St. John 2 or 3 times a year and never get bored. Our very active children enjoy the pool, hottub, ping pong table and wildlife surrounding the home. We encourage you to treat our house like your own and would be happy to assist in making your vacation plans.

dave rather purchased this house in 2008

Why dave rather chose Gift Hill

One of our family members learned to cook in St. John and resided there for 4 years. After many vacations, we knew it was the perfect spot for our second home. 3/4 of the island is a US National Park. This creates a perfect play ground to explore the beaches, ocean and peaceful community. The hedonistic vibe of the locals and great restaurants create a great atmosphere. Short boating trips to other islands make this US territory even more attractive.

What makes this house unique

Our family has been vacationing in St. John for 17 years. We bought this brand new home in 2008 and couldn't be happier! The views of the sunset and privacy of the lot are priceless. Bannana and Payua Trees surround the property. The beautiful flowers and landscaping and wildlife ie. deer, iguanas, geckos and hummingbirds surround the property. The location of the house on a high ridge allow for trade winds and a perfect spot to watch the boats floating around the island.

Beautiful home for an Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful home with amazing views of St Thomas. We had 4 adults and 4 kids. Our 3 kids were able to share the room (thanks to the trundle beds) across from the master where we stayed. The house was large enough that you could always find a quiet place to relax. The double decks were great. I don't know which had a better view. We all loved the pool. The pictures look exactly as we found it. The rental agency Carefree Getaways was really great to work with. They even helped us obtain a rental car when our plans fell through. We all left hoping we would be back. Thanks for everything!

Fantastic Home for a Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I along with my family (parents,sisters,aunts) arrived at Soul Island on August 10, 2012 after much anticipation. It was the first family vacation we have ever taken and was the trip of a lifetime. The house is amazing and offers something for everyone. We spent days hanging around the pool and evenings eating home cooked dinners on the balcony at sunset. There were 12 of us ranging in age from 20-60, and throughout the week the home provided a great areas to congregate and make plans and was conveniently located in the island so that we were never far from the beaches or from hiking trails, or a restaurant. The home was fully stocked with dishes, essential cooking supplies, towels, etc. There were also lots of games, movies, whole house sound system, and fresh fruit growing on the trees outside. There is also a drawer in the house with all kinds of brochures and pamphlets if you are interested in booking an excursion of some sort. One of the neatest things was a huge guest book where people have stayed and left intimate details of their time spent on the island and at soul island house. Reading though the books gives you a great idea of snorkeling spots, great places to dine, but also makes you realize how great the house is and how many great times have been had at the home. The owners have done a fantastic job and make booking and arriving a very easy process. We hope to return again as soon as it is possible. On a random note, the beds are comfortable, the baths are great and the house is just very very roomy and has a great feel to it. We can't wait to return!!

Honeymooners

  • 5 out of 5
We took our honeymoon to Soul Island and it will never be forgotten. We were only two in this massive house that sleeps 12 and we were so spoiled. We got up every morning to an amazing view, lounged around on the huge deck and took an adventure to any one of the awesome beaches. We loved St. John, but always wanted to be back at the house for sunset. St. John can keep you so busy, but you don't even need to leave Soul Island because you have the best view, an awesome pool, jacuzzi on the deck, sunsets, and great amenities. The kitchen is full of anything you need. The bathrooms are gorgeous. What a treat! The owner was a great guy and hope to meet him one day and go back:)

Gorgeous Views!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Soul Island is a spacious, beatifully appointed 4 bedroom home suitable for AT LEAST eight people. THere are 2 floors with 2 bedrooms on each floors and would be ideal for a large family or for multiple families travelling together. We have been to St John many times and the gorgeous sunset views from Soul Island can not be beat! Dave, the owner, was also a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely stay here again if we were travelling with a large group!
