Alyce and Paul bought the land for Sea Swan in 1998 we knew the view would be good but didn't realize it would be spectacular. Even long time St.Johnians are amazed at the wonderful view.

The view. At 622 feet above sea level on a clear day you can see over 100 miles. Complete privacy. Luxurious appointments and fully appointed and stocked kitchen.

A WONDERFUL STAY!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I stayed in SeaSwan back in May for a girls getaway. The place was beautiful, and convenient to Cruz Bay, it had everything you need for a day at the beach!! Paul was so kind to help my friends that traveled with us find their Villa and make sure they did not get lost, you cant find that kind of hospitality any where else!! The views from the apartment are some of the best on the island, and great for relaxing and enjoying the sunsets. I cant say enough great things about this place,and when I plan to make a trip back to St. John, I will for sure stay at SeaSwan!!!

GENEROUS AND GREAT VIEWS!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at SeaSwan for our anniversary. First of all: it really does look as great as it does in the pictures. It's an amazing view! The place itself is very comfortable with every amenity. The owners are what push this property over the edge: they are so generous! They met us at the dock to help us find our rental car agency and then led us back to the property (you will need a rental car to stay here for sure). It was nice b/c although the town is small, it's disorienting when you've never been there and have to drive on the left! They helped us with our luggage and then showed us the welcome basket in the fridge: homemade muffins, cheese, wine, and fruit. Try getting that (for free) at a resort! It made us feel so welcome, and it was especially nice b/c it was raining very hard when we got in and we weren't up for venturing back out. They had maps and travel books, towels and beach chairs. It was great. Finally, (and I know it was an exceptional situation so I wouldn't expect this, per se) but it poured while we were there, and Alyce and Paul were so concerned that we make it back to St. Thomas for our flight, that they personally took us over on the car barge and drove us there. That type of care and concern is uncommon, even at the best resorts. It was so private and romantic...truly a great choice in St. John.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We do have sunshine on St John although you both didn't get to enjoy much of it! We felt so bad about the rain but happy you enjoyed the privacy and had the special time together.Hope you give St John another chance for a beach vacation.

A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Gift Hill for 8 days. Let me say: from the start, Alyce was fast to answer any query we may have. Upon our arrival, Paul met us at the ferry to drive us to our rental car company, and then told us about various info we should know about the island (better-priced groceries, gas station, etc.). The apartment was absolutely superb, with a view of the mountains and St. Thomas afar that was truly spectacular. Alyce and Paul had preprared a welcome basket that was unique: home-made muffins, cheese, crackers, red and white wine, and I forget what else. All the time we were there, the place was quiet and always felt like home to go back to at the end of the day. This apartment is a true gem, that we would recommend to anyone who is travelling to St. John!

PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved staying at Sea Swan. It was perfect. Great views from every room. The kitchen was fully stocked with condiments, spices, paper products and a lot more. There was a basket of goodies waiting for us in the refrigerator. It was great to have a washer and dryer. Towels on the Caribbean tend to get very smelly within a day. We always had fresh smelling towels. Paul and Alice were great hosts. We saw them in the beginning and never saw them much after that. We love St John, the snorkeling is amazing. We will be back to this beautiful apartment the next time we come to this beautiful island.

BEST WEEK OF OUR LIVES

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alyce and Paul for sharing your BEAUTIFUL home with us. Your home was better than any five star resort with every extra you could think of including the surroundings of beautiful gardens and variety of visiting birds. We had the best week of our lives not only enjoying the beautiful beaches but staying in the best place in st john.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay at SeaSwan. On our first visit to St.John 20 + years ago we had a modest budget and rented many disappointing rentals. SeaSwan is our effort to share the peace and privacy of our home and provide guests with comfortable and luxurious amenities at a reasonable price with a beautiful view.Hope to see you return.

UNFORGETTABLE BIRTHDAY TRIP!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I went to St. John to celebrate my 30th birthday. This was our first time to the Virgin Islands, and we could not have chosen a better place to stay! Paul and Alyce's home is just as beautiful as the pictures and they are incredible hosts. We arrived late in the evening, and rather than go out to the grocery store to pick up items for breakfast, we were welcomed with a full basket of goodies, including Alyce's homemade muffins (DELICIOUS!!) and fresh flowers from their garden. The apartment is spacious and airy, with incredible attention to detail, and our favorite part (and many other guests as well) was sitting on the balcony eating breakfast and watching the sunset. The apartment is well-stocked with everything you need and Alyce is particularly good at answering emails if you have a specific request. Although Paul and Alyce are just upstairs, which was nice in case we had questions, the apartment itself is very private and quiet. You will need a car for this location, it would be very difficult to not have one. While a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended, we were able to visit the vast majority of the island with our small rental (Toyota Yaris). Be sure to visit Baked in the Sun, a bakery in Cruz Bay...they have fantastic sandwiches and their breakfast menu looked delicious as well. Paul was so kind and went over the area's beaches with us, and we enjoyed driving around to find our personal favorites (Maho Bay!!) Consider making later dinner reservations - why deal with the 'sunset-seeking' crowds when the sunsets from Sea Swan are absolutely spectacular and you can enjoy them on the balcony, along with a glass of wine, while changing for dinner. We would highly recommend a stay at the Sea Swan and cannot wait to visit again! Happy Travels!!
