Still Water Villa - JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our 2nd trip to St. John & our first house rental. We absolutely loved Still Water Villa & all decided that a house rental on St. John beats staying in a hotel. And we would definitely try and rent Still Water Villa again. Ann Marie & Bob (house owners) were both super nice and really wanted our stay to be perfect. The house was very clean, kitchen nice and well appointed, awesome mattresses & good quality sheets, great views, nice pool. The list goes on. I really cannot think of a negative....only wish we had stayed a little longer. And if you are wondering about the bedroom situation, our family of 5 consists of mom/dad & 3 young adult daughters. One daughter stayed in the loft bedroom & said it felt private enough & quiet. She shared a bathroom with the other 2 girls who had a king size bed with a hall bathroom next to it & that worked out just fine. My husband & I had the "master bedroom" with a private bathroom. Still Water Villa - JUST PERFECT

Privacy, great location and perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is very clean and has the extras you need - beach chairs, coolers and plenty of towels. We enjoyed our close proximity to Cruz Bay but loved the privacy of the villa. Views are very nice and the awnings added extra time outside when the sun was too hot or during a light rain. The Master bed is comfortable which there is nothing worse than sleeping on a bad mattress...especially on vacation. Other key amenities were the patio lounge chairs provided the perfect spot for hours of reading, the wireless speaker was nice to Bluetooth our playlists, the ice maker provided a limitless amount to keep our evening beverages cool and it was nice to know we had a generator in the event of a power outage. Power went out twice in Cruz Bay while out to dinner and while we anticipated calling Bob to set up the generator upon returning, power was never lost.

The owners, Bob and Ann Marie, made everything seamless from meeting us at the ferry to pointing out the grocery stores. I've read many of the reviews prior to booking and my only hesitation with initially booking this villa was payment via check directly to the owners tends to make me nervous but I assure you that they are reputable folks and own a very well respected business on the island called Low Key Dive Shop. Also, when speaking with local business owners around town, when asked where I was staying, upon saying, "Still Waters", more than not, the locals would say, "Bob and Ann Marie's" place.

The description and photos of the villa are what to expect. My kids (ages, 13, 11 and 9) and husband agree that we would definitely stay at Still Waters again!!

Our Second Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Still Waters Villa and it was just as wonderful as the first. The views, open floor plan and location are all excellent. The house is well equipped and fit our family of five easily. Anne Marie and Bob were extremely responsive both leading up to the trip, as well as during our stay. The house is very comfortable and quickly feels like home. The views are so relaxing and beautiful, we spent a lot of time just laying in the lounge chairs looking out at the sea while our kids played in the pool. The location is very convenient to Cruz Bay, a ten minute drive or less, and even closer to the Starfish market, which we visited daily because we would eat many of our meals at Still Waters. If you do venture out, we highly recommend Beach Bar for Happy Hour as it sits on the beach in downtown Cruz Bay and is a great place to bring kids. And for dinner, we loved both The Longboard in Cruz Bay and Zo Zo's at Caneel Bay ($$$$) more than lived up to it's reputation. Our favaorite beaches to visit on this stay were Francis Bay, Jumbie (get there early to get one of the five parking spots), and Little Lemshur Bay (on other side of island by Coral Bay and you need an SUV to drive the last half mile). Hope you have a wonderful stay.

Awesome house with a true million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

Annmarie and Bob had everything ready for us and are on the island to help if you need it.

The house itself is amazing. A great view of the water, and a cool pool too. The finishes in the house are top notch. The kitchen and even shower in the master have great view. Loved the place and would definitely stay there again. This time it was just two of us, but the house is plenty big enough and spread out enough for at least six. Pick this one guys. You won't regret it

Paradise on St John

  • 5 of 5

It was love at first site at Still Waters: the villa is spacious, impeccably furnished, and beautifully appointed - beachy in decor but not kitschy. The kitchen is far and away the best equipped I've rented anywhere; the only things I wanted for were ridiculously minute - like sharper knives and more storage containers for leftovers (like Tupperware, Gladware and the like). But all the essentials are covered and then some - fantastic blender, poolside as well as indoor-appropriate serving dishes, super nice cookware, baking dishes, cheese grater, toaster, coffee maker - it's all there and good quality.

The view from the deck is amazing, and we enjoyed many lovely sunsets. The pool is smallish but deep and well-maintained and is great for cooling off in the afternoon. The overall location was great too - just minutes from Cruz Bay but quiet and secluded on a hill to allow for absolutely privacy while on the deck. Although there were just two of us sharing the villa, the house is very spacious and laid out in a way that would be great for families or multiple couples, allowing for common space but also privacy when needed.

Annmarie could not possibly have been any kinder or more professional. She was fantastically responsive and accommodating from my very first inquiry all the way through to our departure. (Her staff at Low Key Watersports resonates this same tone - everyone we interacted with was wonderful and greatly contributed to our wonderful time in St John.) I can't think of anywhere better to stay on St John and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Still Waters and Annmarie to others.

Excellent home for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked Still Waters for our very first VRBO rental. We were so impressed how easy it was to work with Ann Marie! She helped us book a charter for a day around BVI and dinner reservations. Once we arrived on the island, Bob took great care getting us settled in to our home for the week. The house is well appointed, the views spectacular and we had everything we needed to have a wonderful time! We will definitely rent from Ann Marie and Bob again!!
