Guestbook comments from the owner

Starstruck Day and Night"

My wife, teenage daughter with friend, and I spent a week at "Starstruck" for our first visit to St. John. The accommodations, view and privacy left nothing to be desired. The location lent itself to convenient downtown access for shopping and night life while also being a perfect launching point for excursions to the island's back-side. Lounging by the pool for an afternoon grilling, using the Jacuzzi for an aqua massage or taking in the untainted night sky from the stone patio or terrace very quickly became our regimen. ___

A Dream in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

As we awoke in the finial topped tall poster bed at Starstruck we looked beyond our tanned feet and through the mahogany screened door, past the tops of foxtail palms and realized that this was our last day to awake to the panoramic view of Cruz Bay, St. Thomas and 6 other Caribbean islands. From our 800-foot high perch in the St. John canopy we had just enjoyed a truly unique luxury vacation that will be difficult to match anywhere else.

The property, which appears to be near new, was wonderfully appointed and had the look and feel of a professionally maintained luxury residence. We enjoyed the centrally located kitchen/great room which had large arched mahogany doors leading to the pool and pergola on one side of the home, and an expansive covered porch on the ocean side of the property which was appointed with plush couches and chairs for relaxing as well as railing high tables and chairs for outdoor dining or just enjoying the sunset as pleasure boats and ships set off on their ocean passages.

Each of the 4 bedrooms had hardwood appointed bathrooms with dual sinks and spacious ocean view showers. After our hike on the historic Reef Bay Trail we all enjoyed a relaxing session in the outdoor hot tub complete with messaging jets for our aching feet. (Wear socks and shoes on that hike!)

We chose to leave the air conditioning off and the windows and doors open so we could enjoy the evening breeze blowing through the Traveller Palms and the hiss of the occasional passing tropical shower. Needless to we were very happy with our week at Starstruck and hope to return soon.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You can’t get any better than Starstruck … a wonderful week of relaxation and fun. The house has beautiful vistas from every angle, a pool in the courtyard and a hot tub on the deck, surrounded by lush vegetation. Four private, spacious, comfortable suites that contain every amenity you need and a kitchen/family room for intimate gatherings. We enjoyed breath-taking sunsets from the dining area on the deck and had refreshing barbecues by the pool. The house is modernly appointed with mahogany trim, custom cabinetry and terra cotta tiled floors, which made it feel like a luxury resort. It is situated close to white sand beaches, snorkeling, hiking, restaurants and shops. Can’t wait to go back next year.

BETTER THAN ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 Couples in our late 50's and early 60's that were going to St John for the first time. I searched for a villa and found STARSTRUCK and I'm so glad I did. It looked beautiful in the pictures and vidio and in real live it was even better. Jay was easy to work with to get it booked and Dinise was a great help before we arrived and meeting us when we are arrived. She met us at the Dolphin market after we picked up some supplies and we followed her to Starstruck. She gave us a tour and showed us everything we needed to know.

I will say the drive in and driveway is quite the experience. We rented 2 jeeps from sunshine jeep rental and you do need them. The first thing you notices is the beautiful view you have. It is breathtaking. Then you see the great detail Jay put into the driveway and stairs down to the pool area and main entrance of the villa. The wall he build by the pool is just gorgeous. The pool area had everything that you needed. Lounges,floats,coolers,Webber grill,bathroom,towels, and a table for 8.

The main house starts with 2 huge wooden doors that are just so beautiful. The main room is tasteful decorated and so spacious. The kitchen is well layout with all stainless appliances and everything thing you need to cook with. We brought all our meats with us and I cooked just about every night. Pantry was well stocked.

Walking out the back off the house through 2 sets of double door and you are greeted to a million dollar view of St John. It is just breathtaking. We ate out there on the tile balcony just about every night watching the lights of St Thomas and the boats crossing the bay.

One of the reasons we chose STARSTRUCK was the bedroom set up. All 4 are the same size and set up. No fighting over who get which one. 2 are on each end of the top level and lower level. Did I mention the hot tub on the lower end. Some of us really enjoyed that to end our night. All tile shower are huge and the bathrooms are well designed for comfort. Queen size beds were very comfortable and plenty of space with closets and every bedroom has its own air conditioner. Great laundry room on lower level. This Villa has everything you need to have a great time. It's about a 12 minute ride into Cruz Bay. We went to a bunch of beaches everyday and then to some fun happy hours in Cruz Bay. But the best part was coming home to Starstruck every night.

I highly recommend it. Great Job Jay!!!!!!!

Breathtaking and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to St John and we love it more and more everytime we come. The beaches and the snorkeling are to die for. We are foodies and have several restaurants we adore here. This is the third villa we have rented on the island and we absolutely loved every part of it. We came with two other families. The bedrooms are all separate enough that you can feel like you are in your own space and not on top of one another. The home owner and the house manager were a joy to work with. My mom who was with us, hurt her back on the trip and the house manager went as far as to call around and find spas with available massage appointments. Above and beyond! We absolutely loved the kitchen and cooked many meals in it together as a family. The views from every bedroom and the patios are the best you can get. Easy to get to town in Cruz bay and not a far drive to some of the most stunning beaches you have ever seen. We hope to one day own something on this island. Its just heaven on earth. Cant wait to come back!!! Side note....one of our favorite days was cruising around the surrounding islands with Big Blue excursions and Captain Mindy. ABSOLUTE must do!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back from Starstruck and I’m already dreaming of another vacation back!!! We rent houses frequently all over the world and were very very impressed with how beautiful and well thought out the house was. Jay truly did an amazing. Denise was sure to get back to my texts ASAP and supplied anything we needed. Everything was perfect with the house and we enjoyed all the amenities and little extras the house provided. Loved that the soap had a 'Starstuck' sticker on it like a hotel, bedroom en-suites where beautiful, all the kitchen utensils were great, grill was large, snorkel equipment plentiful, beach chairs, large beach towels, etc. Not to mention the view! As the other reviews stated, the view was absolutely breathtaking and the pictures just don’t do it justice. We were perched firmly on that patio every night to enjoy the sunset, stayed to enjoy the lights of St. Thomas and awoke to the sun sparkling on the water. Truly magical! My only fault with the house was while we LOVED the view, our kids waking up at the 6am sunrise left something to be desired! So maybe some pull shades/blinds would be great in the bedrooms. Definitely recommend staying at Starstuck, you will not be disappointed! Wish I was there now....

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teenage children and I spent a perfect week at Starstruck. The pictures do not do the house or views justice! The location of the house was perfect close to town and all of the beaches. We did not find ourselves needing anything- the house is perfectly stocked. Denise the property manager was a phone call away! The separate bedroom suites are so quiet that you feel like your alone in the house. We tried a different beach each morning then came back to the house and loved the outdoor shower. We would relax for awhile and head to town. We especially liked the house being set high in the treetops. We enjoyed the privacy not having neighbors too close by. Perfect Trip!!
