Guest Reviews

Fantastic weekend adventure!

This was a lovely little cottage nestled I. The hills above Cruz Bay. The property had everything we could have wanted and more - from beach supplies (towels, chairs, coolers) to restaurant recommendations. You definitely need a car - preferably something with more than 4 cylinders. Would definitely stay again!

Fantastic Cottage

Beautiful cottage with sweeping views of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. Close to town but has a relaxing, secluded feel. Morning coffee as well as stunning sunset views on the deck, the perfect way to start and end your day. Tara made the entire process very easy, its clear she truly cares about your experience. We will definitely book again!

Delightful stay

Off the beaten track was this delightful cottage with so many lovely details. Wish we could have spent more time!

Another Wonderful 3 Weeks at Alexandra Cottage

My wife & I returned March 7th 2019 from another 3 wonderful weeks at Alexandra Cottage. The Island infrastructure has progressed significantly from last year. Power, Internet, and telephone service has been restored as well as a major clean up at the many beautiful beaches. Jim & Tara are exceptional hosts and have put incredible thought and money into updating their property. Beautiful flowers and shrubs have been re-planted and are meticulously cared for by a wonderful gardener. The beautiful surroundings are further enhanced by a spectacular view of the harbor. Having breakfast on the deck while watching sailboats and ferries was a daily treat that we both enjoyed. I highly recommend any property that is owned and managed by Jim & Tara. They truly care for their guests and are genuinely great people.

perfect 10 days at Alexandra cottage

We just returned from Alexandra cottage last week. Finding great accomodations for just 2 people in St. John is always challenging. this property exceeded our expectations. It had everything we needed to cook a few meals, the bed was super comfortable, great water pressure and you can\'t beat the location and the view. Access to the bigger pool of Mandeville properties made this extra sweet. We can\'t wait to return! any of the properties that are owned by Mandavilla are just wonderful! you can find them inat stjohnvirginislands.
