Serenity Villa Testimonials

Once again Serenity has been an amazing place to rejuvenate! Waking to the incredible views, coffee in the in the pool and dinners on the deck was just what the Dr. ordered. Thanks for all the care given in making it so easy to relax!
Your Serenity Devotee’s Megan and Dan New Mexico

April 5-12, 2014
Thank you for our week of true “Serenity”. The villa was perfect for our stay and the view was breathtaking. It will be hard to head home and not be able to open our doors to see amazing blue water, lush green foliage and brilliant sun at all times. But thankfully we will always have our memories (and hopefully many return trips)!
The little lizards and iguanas were adorable! I am not usually a reptile fan but truly they were fun to watch and peaceful in their own way.
For a small island it is amazing how much there is to do!
Thank you Lisa and Captain Bob (Tropic Power Boat rentals) for a truly peaceful and beautiful week!

WOW! This was our first visit to St. John and it was fantastic! Serenity was a wonderful house with a phenomenal view! We have never been to a house with such a view before! It was a wonderful treat. The iguanas came to the pool deck every day (3 total) and enjoyed basking in the sun. We named them! Wish we could stay longer to see even more!

This was our first visit to St. John. Serenity was a fantastic place to have as a home base as we explored this wonderful island. We loved swimming in the pool and spending time watching the passing boats and the hypnotically beautiful water and sky. The iguanas and other wildlife were a highlight as well. We had a great stay and are sorry to see it come to an end! Thank you so much for making your home available as a home away from home in St. John!

Serenity’ says it all – wonderful & serene!”

This was our first time staying on St. John and we were so happy with how our rental of Serenity turned out. (I think I researched every single villa on the island in planning our trip!) I stayed there with my boyfriend and the house was a perfect size for us. It is located between Great Cruz Bay (where the Westin is) and Chocolate Hole in the Maria Bluff neighborhood – it’s less than a 10-minute drive to town, but feels a world away. It sticks out on a leafy bluff so that you have unobstructed views of the water and of St. Thomas, dramatic views at sunrise *and* sunset, and don’t see your neighbors. I liked facing out on the open water rather than into one specific bay – it felt very private that way (no staring onto the decks of moored boats 🙂 and vice versa :)) and the view was always changing as various sailboats, power boats, and cruise ships went by. The view was so serene, in fact, that we spent a lot more time at ‘home’ than we had planned – we would find ourselves sitting on the deck or lounging in the pool just gazing out at the water and then finding that a lot of time had gone by. Thus, we found some of our ambitions dissolving along with our daily-life stress. 🙂 We kept thinking we saw whales in the distance, but it may have been relaxation-induced hallucinations. 🙂

We loved hanging out on the covered part of the patio above the pool deck, as well as in the pool, which was great – bigger and deeper than it looked in the photos. It was possible to actually do some real swimming in this pool. There were also pool floats that we enjoyed using. Many iguanas came to the pool area to sun themselves during our stay, which for me was a big highlight of the trip since I love reptiles. We also had a few tiny lizards in the house – which I was also very happy about since I figured they would eat any unfriendly biting bugs that might be around. Happily, we did not have any issue with mosquitoes or other bugs while we were there (which is definitely worth mentioning since I can be a mosquito magnet :)). The window screens were in good condition and we enjoyed the constant breezes (and never had to turn on the a/c in the main house – just in our bedroom pod).

The bed we used was very comfortable (in the furthest pod from the main house). The wifi was strong and I got a strong 4G signal on at&T; (throughout the island, actually). Having never stayed in a place using cistern water, I was a bit hesitant about how that would work, but we never ran out of water and the water pressure in the shower was decent. Overall, it was a very comfortable house that made a great home-away-from home while on STJ – Serenity lives up to its name!

Taking care of booking and all the logistics was a breeze. Lisa (of Vacation Vistas) was great to work with and made everything easy. She had many excellent recommendations of things to see and do and was just all-around nice! We would definitely work with her again in the future.

All in all, we were very, very happy with Serenity. Writing this review is bringing back good memories but also making me sad that we had to leave! 😉

July 10-19, 2013
Fabulous stay! View is breathtaking. Peace abounds in this place with the hypnotic sounds of the waves and birds, frequent visits by reptile friends- one day we counted 5 iguanas friendly and curious about us. Had everything we needed for grilling home cooked meals-ate out one evening only! Wonderful farsight and planning, Lisa! Favorite time was early mornings before sunrise…. Love this ho9me, thank you for sharing it with us!

July 2013
Now that the dust has settled from our whirlwind trip to paradise, I wanted to drop you a line to say “thanks” for everything!

Serenity villa certainly lived up to its’ name—quiet, lovely, and the view phenomenal! It was very well stocked with all we would need….even down to a variety of games (which we played one day because too sunburned to get out) and art canvas for the creative spirit. Even a small library suited to a variety literary tastes.

…Our last day there it stormed ALL DAY which was kind of nice to just pack and read while we watched the lightning on the water outside. The power went out for about 30 minutes but no big problem. …

My favorite memories out of all the exciting things we did were the early sunrise times out on Serenity’s deck: cup of coffee in hand, visited by all sorts of bird friends singing songs to ring in the day, white butterflies everywhere, and every now and then a wild parrot to disrupt the reverie—-these things I remember with the greatest joy and wistfulness, for it is so far removed from this concrete jungle I live in here!

Thank you for everything. For all the thought you obviously have given to the needs of the visitors at the villa, for providing transportation with Bazile and his taxi service (especially won points in my book for the “First Lady” bit), for the arrangements made with the car rental prior to our arrival, and for the Big Notebook full of helpful information to the curious visitor.
You are a first class operation!

Peace to you all,
Melinda (and all of the R’s)

P.S. The Iguanas were a big hit with the college group!

We love this house and it is very comfortable and the view is wonderful! Unfortunately I have not the good words to describe it as your friends. Anyway it’s the 10th year we’ve come to St. John and this is the best house we rent! We were delighted, so delighted! We have make the reservation for next year! We want to say a big thanks to Lisa who was always there for us!

Super place with great views, private, and close to all.
I surprised my husband for his 50th. Our family (2 kids aged 9&13) and another family of same size and age stayed here. We needed to rent a cot and that was easy. You don’t speed a ton of time in the rooms any way. Most time was spent on pool deck or under cover of the deck. It was so beautiful the views of St Thomas and beyond. The kids loved the pool and the place was so easy to come and go. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat. It was very clean and comfortable. Can’t wait for our next trip.

Our first stay in St John. The house was very convenient to everything in town. The view from the balcony was absolutely perfect! We slept very good at night with the cool breeze and the sounds of the ocean, best rest we’ve had fro awhile! Mike and Sherri

Just wanted to let you all know that we truly enjoyed our stay at Serenity Villa and St. John. We couldn’t have asked for more from the house, and – as far as
St. John – it was a wonderful experience.

We managed to swim and snorkel a few of the beaches, enjoyed the Carnival, took a hike through the park and simply spent the time care- free and relaxed (the latter was the intent of the vacation!). Evenings were spent cooking on the grill, lounging on the deck and just spending some family time and reading.

We are already talking about the possibilities of “going back to St. John.”

Thank you for all your assistance and help with the planning.

What an amazing place! We loved the pool and beautiful views! It was certainly a treat to have a/c in the kitchen and living room! Thank you for sharing Serenity with and making it so accommodating. We truly felt at home and couldn’t have had a better place!

Our family enjoyed a lovely relaxing week here at Serenity. We really liked the privacy of this villa, and the fact that it’s enshrouded with such lush vegetation. I especially liked the wild frangipani and bougainvillea. It’s a beautiful place, with a spectacular view and we’re already thinking about our next trip back!

What a wonderful home,an ideal place to laze away the tensions of the “real world’. Loved it all, the waves, great pool,star gazing, sun decks and shady spot with table to watch sailboats. Visited most beaches..but what we really enjoyed was how quickly we got into the rhythm of the house; sleep late, lots of dips in the pool, grill some burgers for dinner. Our trip was great , hated to leave but can’t recommend the house highly enough, everything we could have needed we found in the house.

Question: If you want a spectacular view then Serenity is your villa. The fact that it is on the end of a bluff is what sold it for us. The villa itself is lovely, very clean and extremely comfortable. The AC in the living quarters is a plus. I did suggest that a pair of binoculars be placed in the villa because several times we wished we had a pair, cruise ships pass by along with beautifil sailboats. Iguanas will visit the pool area in the afternoon sun but they are quite docile. The pool was refreshing after a day at the beach and the deck is huge. We used the grill and it worked great and the hammock in the back of the house is a delite, very relaxing. Lisa is outstanding as the person who will help you with any question you might have, with your car rental, and acutally anything pertaining to your visit to St. John. The Villa Serenity suits its name to a tee.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serenity. Your home is well named! The location and views unmatched on the island, close to “civilization”, but seemingly in the middle of the Caribbean. We loved hearing the waves crash into the bluffs- the higher locations don’t have the same “audio”. Everything about this house is conducive to relaxation!
Thanks so much for such a well stocked house on our arrival. We rent houses often, and have never arrived to drinks, food, paper products and cleaning items, etc… No need to run to the store immediately upon arrival.
We loved our stay and will likely return!

This was our second trip to St John, but the first time we rented a villa. Our rental agent, Jackie Harrison, of Vacation Villas more like a concierge than a rental agent. Lisa hooked us up with a taxi service to and from the airport in St Thomas, a car rental agency in St. John, a guided boat rental, tips on all the best restaurants and shops and even directions to all the great beaches on St. John all at no extra charge. Just an outstanding job Lisa.
The privacy at Serenity surprised us thanks in a large part to renting the lower level bedroom for our teenage daughter and her best friend. They spent allot of time in down their in the evening playing music and laughing, but we hardly heard them. The main part of the villa was very nice and consisted of kitchen, dining area and great room. The pluses far out weighed the minuses (noisy dishwasher). The views from any room are unparallel. The bedrooms were very comfortable and stylishly decorated. The pool was just the right size for cooling off after a long day at the beach. The gas grill was new and worked great. Serenity offered plenty of outdoor furniture for dining or simply sunbathing. Serenity also offered easy access to town. We rate it 4 1/2 stars out of five.

We stayed for a week at Serenity almost 6 months ago. I returned to the website just to see a few pictures and to remember how beautiful it was. The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. If you are contemplating a St. John’s vacation you couldn’t do better than to book a week at Serenity. The photos give an accurate idea of the place, which is not always the case when you visit hotel websites. Everything was clean, comfortable and in good repair. You’ll want to rent a Jeep. The people we worked with at Vacation Vistas could not have been nicer. We felt truly welcomed. I was there with my wife and two teenaged daughters and we all loved every minute. I think we saved money versus a hotel stay. We were able to buy our groceries, which made a big difference. I hope we can manage a return trip soon. If we can, it will be at a Vacation Vistas villa without question.
