Why Daniel chose Estate Carolina

We had this villa built because we cannot imagine a better place to vacation than St. John. Our 'Almost Heaven' has a spectacular, panoramic view of surrounding Coral Bay and the neighboring Tortola and Drake's Passage.

For a magnificent view, Almost Heaven is the place to stay. The pool area is a great place to hang out for morning sun and in the late evening when the stars are out. The screened dining area keeps bugs away while eating and provides shade during the heat of the day.

Perfect home base to explore all corners of St. John!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days and 4 nights at Almost Heaven and the house delivered in all areas! First-time renting a Villa for a larger party after visiting the island solo or plus 1 prior and the house was exactly what we needed. The view was incredible looking out into Coral Bay everyday and it was a great location to explore all the different beaches, restaurants, and shops on all different ends of the island. We hit up North Shore beaches numerous times, Salt Ponds/Rams Head, and made trips in town to Cruz Bay. Grocery store right down below as well in Coral Bay.

The AC units in the bedrooms worked very well and made sleeping very easy at night. When at the house, you will want to leave the doors and windows open in the main room on top floor with living room and kitchen with the breeze coming in off the deck.

Plenty of beach chairs, towels, and a cooler to bring along to all your beach adventures. Driveway and road were fine driving on as someone who has visited St. John's plenty of times before but as usual 4 wheel drive required. Easiest to just drive into the driveway when parking then when leaving back out and make a 3 or 4 pt turn up the driveway in front of the neighbor's house to change directions when you head out to the main road.

We didn't use the pool that much except for a few dips after beach days, but was nice. Make sure to keep pool lights off at night though to limit bugs getting in pool to clean out next day.

Besides needing to reset the wifi at the start of the trip since house hadn't been rented a few weeks, we didn't need to contact the owners or property manager at all during the trip. We even got a personal escort to follow from Cruz Bay to the house as we stopped at the Beach Bar for a late lunch when traveling to the island on day 1.

House is great if you got teenage/young adult kids and also would work well for couples with the 3 bedrooms. All beds are large enough for 2 people to share.

The deck is a great place to have meals at. We often ate breakfast and dinner at the villa, while lunch out.

Only knock is they need to replace the vacuum because doesn't seem to work to use to get sand out of returning your rental. There is a vacuum at the gas station in Cruz Bay though before you return your jeep rental.

View was great, house had some issues. Hot tub didn't work right. House was not all in good repair,.

  • 3 of 5

House is great. View was awesome. The road in was challenging, but very doable. The upkeep of the house was less than satisfactory. Lights burned out, dishwasher not properly installed. Hot tub worked part way part of the time. The property manager was nice, but did not return calls, or communicate what he would do to resolve the issues. The most disappointing part was that the issues with the hot tub were known , but had not been resolved prior to our stay. I do not like paying for services not rendered. We did have a wonderful time and will return to St John, but would not rent this property again.

Always Almost Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Almost Heaven and we can't wait to go back! The house has everything you need to relax. Great beach chairs and cooler made spending the day at the beach a breeze. The house is perfectly located in Coral Bay and gets the best sunrise! Love the pool, hot tub, and outdoor shower!

Delightful property and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgiving - what a wonderful location at any time of year! To escape from the cold in New England and arrive to beautiful sunny skies on St John - that was certainly "Almost Heaven", And the house was fabulous with the most breathtaking view of Coral Bay from the veranda. Having breakfast out there every morning listening to the birds was all I needed to relax. This property is so well equipped with everything you need, and more. The pool and hot tub are amazing. We enjoyed the restaurants in Coral Bay and only went to Cruz bay once during our stay. The North Shore beaches are fabulous and all within easy reach of the property by car. We would definitely plan on returning.

Beautiful home, great value

  • 5 of 5

* Well-equipped kitchen, pool, towels, etc.

* Fabulous views

* Air con in all 3 bedrooms was welcome

* Scary driveway (4WD is mandatory)

* About 20 minutes to the North Shore beaches

* Liked the funkier, less touristy atmosphere of Coral Bay, but if you're looking for a lot of nightlife, you may want to be closer to Cruz Bay.

We would stay here again.
