Come and enjoy a stay here at Hummingbird's Seacret where you can experience a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere with easy access to dining and shopping as well as our spectacular beaches. The lovely Great Cruz Bay neighborhood offers island-easy walking for those who wish to stroll, walk or jog while enjoying beautiful views all along the way. Hummingbird's Seacret is the perfect home for many types of groups, amazingly child friendly (even the wee ones).
The home is just small enough for one couple or even a single person to feel totally comfortable, safe and secluded.
We just returned from a week long stay and couldn't have been happier with the villa. It was quite comfortable for my family of four (two of them being children). The two identical bedrooms had comfortable king sized beds, including high quality linens and towels, in addition, the closets were full of extra linens and blankets. The kitchen was well stocked with anything one might need to cook a meal or prepare drinks by the pool, not to mention it was amaingly organized (and full of items from local shops). The pool area / deck provided equal amounts of both sun and shade, including a covered area with comfortable seating. The pool was the pefect size to either relax by or cool off after a day at the beach. We loved lying in the lounge chairs to watch the shooting stars at night. There was also some new deck seating and and pool floats which were wonderful additions. The games and puzzles were a big hit. The neighborhood is close to town, within walking distance to the Weston and full of beautful homes. The welcome package of snacks and drinks was such a pleasant surprise. Communication with everyone at Vacation Vistas was excellent. Having stayed in various villas in St John over the years, I have to say, Seacret Garden had everyting we needed and then some for our family. It was a very well cared for home and we look forward to our next trip!
Humming Bird's Seacret - Private, breezy, vibrant with dazzling views
Reservation ID #HA-0GZC69
I have stayed at a number of rental properties over the years and I will say this was the best stocked and best overall quality. The furniture and property is clearly cared for and didn't even feel like a rental property! The view and private pool were amazing to have access to and the location is close enough to Cruz Bay that you can take a taxi to and fro with ease. The property manager recommended an amazing taxi driver we used for the entire stay - he was great. The property manager was very easy to correspond with before and during the stay. 10 out of 10 - the location, view and property itself were all amazing!

We love Hummingbird's Seacret! Your home is beautiful and we will surely be back! The house had everything we needed. We will recommend this Villa to everyone.
April 2016-Pennie and Erick from Ft. Mills, SC said...
Thank you for letting us enjoy it. We needed nothing while we where here. We have stayed at lots of other villas over the past 18 years and none of them had all the things yours has! We will definitely recommend the house to friends.
March 2016-Bob &Lyn, Mark & Karen from St Louis, MO said...
The perfect 2 bedroom Villa- great breezes and the Villa has everything we needed. A lovely comfortable home and very clean. We loved the location and St John is certainly our favorite island
July 25- Aug 1 2014
Our 20th year coming to St John and we think we may have had the best weather yet! The blues and greens of the water were so vivid- and great photo ops! … Until next year!
The Holmes 5+ times here!
July 17-24, 2014
This was our first visit to St. John and we had an incredible time! Our stay in this wonderful house made our time perfect! The view is awesome and the house itself is just right for 2 couples! We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and soaking in the pool. What a great way to cool off! We snorkeled each day..however our day with Captain Bob (Tropic Power Boat Rentals) was a fantastic way to start- especially us who were new to snorkeling! We look forward to a return visit soon!

We loved our stay here at Hummingbird's Seacret. The house was beautifully decorated and the views spectacular. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the hummingbird's. Have never seen so many enjoying the perfection of the flowers in your beautiful tree! We also enjoyed the nice breeze and sitting on your back patio and floating on your rafts. … Thank you! The G's
July 8-15 2014
We had a fantastic time at Hummingbird's Seacret! It was my husband's and my 4th trip to the island and our sons' first trip. They are 5 and 2 and had the best time! The house is perfect for a small family and the pool is the perfect size. We spent many days at the beach…they also took their first boat trip to Sandy Cay and Jost Van Dyke, they loved getting stamps in their passports- soo cool! Once again another great trip to St. John. We look forward to many more family trips and hopefully some of them back at Hummingbirds Seacret!
Special thanks to Lisa and Captain Bob (Tropic Power Boat Rentals) who made our trip easy and fun!

Another great year at Hummingbird's Seacret!
April 27 2014
Perfect! Thanks! This is our 6th or 7th trip to St. John over the past 25 years (quite an accomplishment coming from the West coast). We were so comfortable in your beautiful home- more and more comfortable each day in fact! We dined out on the deck more times than we dined out this trip. It's tough to beat the view from here, and the warm breezes in any restaurant! ..A wonderful trip- thanks so much for sharing your home! the A's California

This is a very enjoyable place to stay! It is well organized, supplied with everything needed, and especially aesthetic. We were very comfortable and look forward to returning! Thank you for all the thoughtful additions!
Patricia and David
The feeling of "home" is an intangible, though very real thing that all who stay here must feel! You have filled this place with appreciation and joy that is palpable for all who are lucky enough to spend time here. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We hope to have added our own measure of appreciation, love and joy as our contribution for all who come here. Thank you!

"This place should not be a "Seacret"!"
We have done vacation rentals in Spain, Italy, Malta, the UK and Ireland, and also once before in St John. Hummingbird's Seacret was hands-down the best place we have ever rented! Start with the house: It was exactly as advertised. It looked like the pictures online and it was indeed perfect for two couples to share with two matching master bedrooms. Excellent kitchen. Beautiful baths. Great patio and pool. Next, the equipment in the house: The kitchen was wonderfully equipped with pans and all other cooking tools as well as eating/serving pieces. Also, there were plastic wrap, aluminum foil, waxed paper, coffee filters, paper napkins, paper towels, plastic storage container, etcs -- all the consumables that are never provided and one always has to go out and buy. There were toys, puzzles, cards, books, binoculars, beach chairs, etc etc to use. There were more towels than we own at home, and ditto with beach towels. Finally, the property manager: Lisa promptly answered every email I sent during the planning phase. She met us at the ferry dock, accompanied us over to the car rental place, and then led us out to the house for the property briefing. She assured us that any problems with the house would be handled right away, but we had no occasion to test that out! I will definitely try to rent this place again!
Btw, Lisa's company (Vacation Vistas) partners with Tropic Powerboat Rentals. We chartered a fabulous day-long trip around St John with Captain Bob. He's a diver, and took us to four absolutely fabulous snorkeling spots. Along the way we heard some riotous stories and learned a lot about the island. This is also a must-do!
My husband, myself and our 2 boys (5 & 2 1/2) stayed at Hummingbirds Seacret for 10 days in February 2014. In the past we've rented 3 other homes on the island (never before in one of Lisa's homes). While all of them were very nice, Hummingbirds was hands down the best experience. Kate (Lisa's helper) picked us up at the ferry dock. She was so warm and welcoming, full of great information, and when we arrived at the house we were greeted with crackers, cheese, beer & wine. After traveling 10 long hours w/2 small children, we were beyond thrilled! From then on it just kept getting better. The house was perfect, The open, single building, ranch style allowed us to lounge by the pool while the kids watched cartoons or played in the pool. Speaking of the pool, it was perfect; heated and clean with outstanding views! You'd think in such a warm place you wouldn't need a heated pool. However when your kids want you to go in with them 1st thing in the a.m. And last thing before bed, the heat makes it so much more enjoyable. The location was great, close to town and grocery store. Also, unlike other homes we've rented we never once had to use air conditioning, the house was always airy and comfortable. We rented strollers and took walks every morning which turned out to be a highlight of the trip for both my husband and I. The roads were paved and the hills were steep and there were continuous breathtaking views! We've had some amazing views in the past, but this villa (although the lowest geographically) is my favorite!! I love seeing the boats, the inlets the hills and the sea! The house was clean, bright, and stocked with all the little things you need a bit of but you can only purchase in large quantity...coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, dishwasher soap, sponges etc...to sum it up: we will use Lisa's Co. from now on, and we can't wait to go back to Hummingbirds Secret!
You have a wonderful house! This is our first time to stay on St. John and your villa made it perfect! This won't be the last time we stay with you. The views are spectacular to say the least. The amenities you provide could not be more perfect!

Trip Advisor Review
"Completely exceeded our expectations."
The description on the websites do not do this place justice. The tiled bathrooms have a huge jalousie window that opens and makes it feel like an outdoor shower. The rooms are spacious, the villa was immaculate, and the kitchen was well equipped. We were welcomed by a fruit and cheese platter, with crackers and some beverages in the fridge. The coffee pot was great and filters were supplied. Coolers and beach chairs as well as numerous beach towels were included. Front loading full size brand name washer and dryer were available and also immaculate. While the living room was lovely with very comfortable furniture, the spacious deck is where we found ourselves morning, noon, and night. The view was great, just Like the website pictures, with sunrise and sunset views. The pool was warm, clean and refreshing and included floats to relax on. There are several areas to relax including high top tables and chairs outside which made sunset cocktails fun and multiple lounges for laying out and for the inevitable nap. The deck had shaded and unshaded areas so those sensitive to the sun will be fine. There was a lovely breeze day and night, we found we never needed the a/c in the bedroom(it is included and was easy to operate). The location is great, about 5 mins to town. I did take a cab home and it was 6dollars. We also took the waiting cabs that are located at the Westin for 5$per person. The St. John market is across from the Westin and is two minutes away. They are well stocked with groceries and liquor, and even had gluten free items such as quinoa and Ezekiel bread! Hummingbird's Seacret is homey and comfortable, truly our home away from home. Upon arrival we were instantly relaxed by the surroundings and never wanted to leave. The north beaches were maybe 12-15minutes away. Even the east end was only about 20 min. We were joined by another couple mid week and we were all comfortable, with room for all.
This is our 40th winter St. John visit, the 16th booking with the incomparable Lisa, but our 1st at Hibiscus Garden. It's a lovely house, and, like all of Lisa's, immaculate and well-appointed. Close to town, good neighborhood, but extremely private. The layout is fine for one couple, but would offer privacy for two, as the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the living space. Breezes keep it cool in the afternoon, and it faces north-east so the inside hardly ever gets full sun; this would be especially important in warmer months. Deck & pool mostly shaded for the sun-wary. We rarely used the air conditioning. Outside the back door is a tree with large, fuzzy pink blooms which attract hummingbirds, often more than a dozen at a time in the morning. (1 flight of steps down from parking to house - no wheelchairs.) Like the hummingbirds, we hope to come back.

We couldn't have been more pleased with the property or the service at Hibiscus Garden and Jackie Harrison. Absolutely everything we needed was provided and then some. We are already planning our return to St. John and Hibiscus Garden.
Thank you Lisa!

Our week here has been one of the most wonderful, relaxing vacations we've ever had. Hibiscus felt like our home away from home. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling your pristine beaches and roaming the beautiful island. A fantastic way to celebrate our 49th anniversary with two of our closest friends!
Thanks, Lorraine and Bob
Year #17 for us on St. John and at least our 4th stay here at Hibiscus Garden. We dined twice on the Hibiscus terrace and enjoyed it better than any restaurant in town--until 2011!

We celebrated our 10th anniversary in style with 2 weeks at Hibiscus Garden. Our 6th trip to St John and our 2nd with 2 1/2 year old son. Hibiscus was beyond perfection for our family. We've stayed at a lot of villas, hotels etc,,, and Hibiscus had everything we needed plus some! We very much appreciated the iPod docker and listened to Tropical music during our many, many hours by the pool... Great Vacation!! Love your home!!
Amy, Don and Quinn
Don't know where to start-- we rent a lot of beach/lake homes and this takes the cake..Comfortable AND beautiful, not a single thing we felt missing..that's a huge compliment! As for St. John -first timer's who plan to be back! We had the perfect mix of eating in and out. Afternoon patio and pool was the highlight of our daily routine!
Todd and Heidi
What a fabulous week and absolutely beautiful place to spend it...our first time on St John and already making plans to come back and stay right here at Hibiscus Garden! We loved it!

My huisband and out two adult children love St. John. WE have rented thorugh the years from many companies. The service that Lisa provided exceeds them all. And the villa was just perfect.
"Lisa I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience we had renting Hibiscus Garden villa from you... we have rented throughout the years in St John and we were truly impressed with the villa and with you.
Thank you!" MN

What a beautiful villa! The art and accessories were just exactly what you would expect a vacation villa to have. Where do they shop? The kitchen had everything you could want and more. They thought of everything even down the binoculars to check out the view. The views were gorgeous. We loved the spacious deck. The layout was perfect for two couples. The great room was just the right size. You could see the views from inside and see the breathtaking garden area from inside as well. I had breakfast in the garden area and watched the hummingbirds feed and play. I can't say enough about how much we loved this place. The pictures do not do it, or the view justice. Thanks so much for such a lovely home away from home. The perfect vacation getaway!

We spent a wonderful week at Hibiscus Garden. We were met at the dock, shown around the area, given tips on places to eat and shop, and welcomed at the house with hors d'oeuvres, beverages and fresh island flowers! The house was clean and inviting. The balcony was a favorite place to enjoy sunrises and sunsets! What a view! We would highly recommend this rental house.

My husband and I have been travelling to St. John consecutively now for 13 years. We've stayed in large homes, smaller homes, and a condo all over the island. We feel we've found "the one" at Hibiscus Garden.
It's close to town with a spectacular view. The amenities in the kitchen are superb and the bedrooms and bathrooms are most comfortable. The A/C is both used and appreicated!
Simply put, it's a pleasure to stay at Hibiscus Garden and I don't forsee staying anywhere else.
You to will be hooked.....Stephanie
