Guest Reviews

Great stay on St John

Beautiful property! A rental car is a must.

You WON'T be disappointed..........

If an AWESOME VIEW, being close to Cruz Bay, and AWESOME property owners is what you are looking for, this is the property for you! Two couples stayed here for one week and everything we could have asked for and MORE was provided. Beach chairs, snorkeling gear, our own private pool and top-notch accommodations were all here. Tara was THE BEST!!!! We even got a preview of the other property next door and all of their properties were clean and well maintained. I would recommend any of their properties!!!

Excellent Place, but have wheels!

It was a beautiful property with a great deck, well equipped, and very comfortable. There is a nature area in the back where many iguanas live and it was an added bonus for our group to often see 6-8 iguanas hanging out in the trees. Our only surprise was that the map on the property listing suggests that the property is close behind the Dolphin Market. Reality is the Dolphin Market is only about a third of the way up a very steep hill to the unit. We rented a jeep after checking in which easily solved that problem. But, being up the steep hill is why the views are so stunning. We hung out at the unit more than planned because it was so peaceful on the deck and the view stunning.

We loved everything about it!

Ylang Ylang is an awesome place to stay! The location is great! The property is neat and well kept and the views are to die for! The owners are very helpful! Would delicately stay here again!

Beautiful and convenient location

Great property, and location was so nice. Just a couple of minutes from the ferry. Clean house with great views and a private pool to come home to after hiking was awesome. Extremely helpful host we will definitely stay here again.
