Perfect house for 3 couples -- parents and grown kids
We rented this house for ourselves and our two grown children and their spouses. The reviews of this property were absolutely accurate. A fantastic space for a family gathering! Beautiful furnishings, well-stocked kitchen, gorgeous porch with a view, great pool (we used it every day), and close to town and anything you'd want. The owner and management team were very helpful and responsive. Beds were comfortable, climate control was great (and needed in the late PM on return from the beach). There were beach chairs, beach towels, all linens -- well equipped. Nice floats for the pool too. Our one small negative was the lack of shade. The porch does not provide shade from the late pm sun -- and the pool umbrella could not cover the deck adequately. We understand a cabana that we in place before Maria will be reinstalled soon. Short of that, this place was perfection! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us

Lovely Family Holiday
We stayed at Idyllic for almost 2 weeks with our grown children and their spouses. It was perfect! The view and the location were exceptional! My husband woke early every day just to sit outside and overlook Chocolate Hole. My kids loved the separate apartment on the lower level. The pool was lovely too. We had a wonderful time!

Best deal on the island
You won’t find a house of this size with a beautiful view and a private pool for less than less on St. John. The manager is excellent and extremely thorough and professional. The view is phenomenal. The view could be maximized with some plant trimming but I understand that the owner intends to do that soon, some minor repairs needed in the house, but as I said this place is a steal in my opinion so we didn’t mind at all, manager did point things out and I’ve every confidence if we needed something addressed she would have been right on it. We were way too relaxed to be bothered with normal wear and tear. Pool isn’t heated but was remarkably warm, very comfortable temp. Manager left a welcome basket which was super thoughtful. House is very well stocked with all the things you need, even plenty of alcohol left by precious guests. Excellent, highly recommend and we hope to be back soon! 5 stars

The Idyllic Villa Is Certainly Idyllic
Our experience at the Idyllic Villa was fantastic! Jackie, the property manager, communicated with us throughout the reservation process. She provided valuable information about the property, the island, and various car rental options. She even arranged a private taxi service to meet us at the airport to take us to the Red Hook ferry for an additional fee. The private taxi was worth it! It was a much more comfortable and pleasant ride than the regular taxis that pack their vans full of random travelers. Jackie met us at the St. John ferry dock when we arrived on the island. She took our bags into her car while we retrieved our rental car. Our car rental was delayed because we arrived after their regular closing hours, but Jackie stayed with us while we waited. After we were all set with our rental car, we followed her to the villa, where she gave us a complete property tour. Jackie and the property owners even had a welcome gift of some supplies for us in the refrigerator! The villa is beautiful! The view of Great Cruz Bay is simply stunning. Our family enjoyed sitting in the living room, on the deck, and swimming in the pool while soaking up that view! The villa has everything you need for your stay. The beds were very comfortable; there were plenty of bath and beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, and umbrellas for use at the beaches. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, plates, utensils, cooking implements, and herbs and spices. We used the gas grill on the deck to cook a few meals, and it worked wonderfully. The clothes washer and dryer were stocked with detergent and fabric softener. The bathrooms had plenty of bar soap, toilet paper, and other items. Little things like those can often complicate a rental experience, but Jackie and the owners thought of everything! During our stay, we had a minor maintenance issue that was our fault, but Jackie had a maintenance person at the property within 30 minutes of us reporting the problem. Fantastic service! I couldn’t have been happier with our stay and with Jackie. My family is already planning a return trip, and we want to reserve the same villa for next year.

New memories in a familiar place
Idyllic was my families property in the late 80’s early 90’s. I was the last to leave back then and I step foot back on it 31 yrs later. I brought 4 friends who had never experienced St John. The house /location was truly ideal and perfect! They fell in love just as I did all those years ago. The house is a perfect size for 6. The outside to me is the best part. An expansive deck with breathtaking views and pool deck to stretch out after a day on the beach. It was all I had hoped and more. Communications were excellent with vacation villa I hope to return again soon with my kids

"Idyllic was perfect for the 5 of us. LOVED the back deck and enjoyed coffee there every morning enjoying the view and calm serenity of the quiet bay. We snorkeled for the first time…Loved the pool set up, Loved the house set up… thanks for an unforgettable week!"

Great property !
We had an amazing stay in St John at Idyllic. The property was perfect for my family of 6. The kitchen was stocked when we got there, with cold beer and wine waiting. The space allowed for a teenager den. And, the kids loved the pool! Perfect to unwind after long days of hiking and swimming!

We've rented this villa several times. We love the beautiful view of the harbor with St Thomas in the background which we can enjoy while dining on the covered deck. The villa is immaculate and tastefully decorated. We love everything about it!

Perfect family villa!
We had a wonderful week at Idyllic Villa! The property manager was very helpful and all of our needs were accommodated for our family with 4 children. The kids loved the pool and we loved the incredible view! We would definitely stay here again!

Idyllic villa was a beautiful paradise for our family to stay. We are most of our meals here on the porch enjoying the sunset. Our adventures were all over the island..thank you for the delicious treats upon our arrival. Your house was a relaxing oasis for us all!

Had a great week with beautiful weather. The house was just right for us and we would choose it again! A fantastic island with lots to see and do but still unspoiled. Idyllic is the right word to describe this!

We started our week snorkeling….we enjoyed many dinners on the deck overlooking Great Cruz Bay…Thank you Lisa and Idyllic for 3 wonderful, memorable vacations, first our honeymoon, second for our ten year anniversary and now with our wonderful kiddos. Time marches on. Thank you Thank you! The G's Vermont

Our family stayed at Idyllic for Thanksgiving. We lived every minute. We've stayed on St. john many over the last 30 yrs. and keep coming back. Of all the villas we've stayed at Idyllic was perfect! We had lots of rain showers, so the big covered porch was perfect for waiting for the rain to pass while sipping cocktails. Kids loved the pool and playing "store" in the cabana! There is so much beauty to be had on St. John!.. Band L families Rhode Island

Hi Lisa-
Just wanted to be sure to say Thanks for all your help organizing our visit to St John and Idyllic - the villa was beautiful and it had everything we could want - We all agreed that you and Vacation Vistas are the best villa rental company we have dealt with yet!

November 2013

Idyllic was Ideal!

My parents, my husband and I and my two young children (4&6) stayed at Idyllic this past November. After many trips to St. John, and many prior villa rentals, Idyllic really impressed us. The layout was perfect- two rooms off the main living area for my husband and I with the kids, and then another bedroom with couch, small fridge and bathroom for my parents downstairs. We are a beach-loving family, but found ourselves at the Villa a few days- completely content. We had one issue with an air conditioner, and Lisa from Vacation Vistas had a brand new a/c installed within hours of our phone call. We will definitely be visiting Idyllic again- we hated to leave!!

The views from this villa are amazing. We have been staying with Vacation Vistas for years now. But this was our first time staying at the Idyllic. But it won't be our last! The layout of the Idyllic is so convenient. But I think our favorite part of the villa was the pool and the pool cabana. We spends days and evenings in the pool. Perfect amount of sun and shade. Lisa with Vacation Vistas is the best, hands down!

"Great for 3 Generation Family"
I had the pleasure of staying Idyllic Villa this past April during school vacation week. I traveled from CT with my husband and two teenagers, and my parents flew in from Florida to stay with us. The setup was perfect for our group. The Main floor had two bedrooms both with King Beds that could be converted to two twins, and each had a private bath. The downstairs (below the main floor) had a King suite, with bathroom, washer and dryer and its own deck. My parents loved having their own private space downstairs. Our Favorite spot by far was the spacious porch with the amazing view. Having our own private pool with lounge chairs was also great. The Kitchen was fully equipped and had everything you could possibly need.

Jackie Harrison was wonderful, meeting us at the Ferry to grab our luggage, directing us to the rental car location she recommended, and leading us to the Villa. She reviewed the ST. John Map with us, and made great recommendations. One day the Wifi needed to be reset, we sent her an e-mail, and it she fixed it immediately.

This is the first time we had opted to rent a Villa in the Caribbean vs. staying at a resort or going on a cruise, and now I can't imagine doing it any other way. We would wake up when we wanted, read and enjoy our coffee and breakfast with a great view, and then decide which beach to hit to go snorkeling. We would come home relax by the pool, do some more reading and relaxing, and then decide whether to cook and eat on our beautiful porch, or to find a nice restaurant. I would absolutely rent with Vacation Vista's again, and would love to return to Idyllic.

August 2012
Idyllic was perfect for our stay. We had two adults who stayed in the suite downstairs and four teens who shared the two bedrooms/two baths upstairs. Villa is great - clean, a/c, pool, all the amenities you need. Easy drive to Cruz Bay - no crazy driveways or roads. We loved all the animals we came across at the villa: several iguanas who hang out in the trees to the left of the deck, a million banaquits who come every morning if you put out a bowl of sugar and a bowl of water, we even had a deer in the backyard. Saw wild donkeys on our fun ride out to the East End. Love, love, love St John - no reason to ever go anywhere else.

The Two of us had a wonderful time on spring break-our last before retiring. We hiked, snorkeled, swam, ate, drove all over the island and fed bananas to the birds. R hooked the iPod up to the speakers in the pool house and we listened to jazz and island music the days we spent here .. we..read and looked out over Great Cruz Bay from every seat and drank pina coladas and mojitos. The view from here is spectacular day or night, be sure to check out the stars! Thanks for all the beach towels and providing beach chairs and a cooler. I'm sure we'll be back.

Just wanted you to know how very much we appreciated all the arrangements and accommodations you made for us for our wonderful trip to St.John. "Idyllic" is a perfect place for a three-generation family; we loved the pool (and plentiful beach towels), the decks, the view, proximity to town, and the way the bedrooms and living areas are arranged. We enjoyed our taxi rides with Bazil and found it so convenient to have that and our rental car all arranged.
Thank you very much,
Ann and family from Maine

Idyllic was awesome! We were excited about the pool. My Grandfather had a laugh in the pool- we dove off the rafts, played "Cruise ship and "supersonic action"! My Grandmother loved the birds that came and one bird even drank some coffee. And last night we even saw three parrots fly by!
