"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!
Mark and Beth Kansas
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!

Well here we are for our third visit. We did it! As promised we brought our kids (15 and 14), and, as always, had an Idyllic time! 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
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!
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!!
Bon from Rhode Island
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.
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.

Our ten days here was just super! Your house is beautiful and we loved it. This was our 5th time renting and this is my favorite so far! We hope to be back! All of your amenities were great!
We have had an absolutely perfect week here. Sad to be leaving!
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!
