This house was perfect for us; it was indeed a "house of breezes" with the lulling sound of the surf a constant companion. The house itself showed the care that the owners took in its design and it was just an easy house at which to feel free and at easy.
I was speechless when the doors flew open and we walked into Beit Hawa. I had never been to a tropical destination before and this was perfect. I can't think of one negative aspect of the vacation home or the vacation on St. John other than the fact I had to leave. It provided the comfort and privacy I needed for my first Island vacation. I travel a lot. And I rarely if ever want to travel to the same place twice. But from the moment I stepped foot on St. John I began planning my trip back. The ambiance, the "artsy" laid back feel on the island, the vibe (the rum!) were just what the doctor ordered. At Beit Hawa loved the view, the neighborhood bird, the iguanas hanging out in the trees, the outdoor shower! You'll be hearing from me soon on the return dates...
We had an excellent trip to St. John, and loved Beit Hawa. A representative from the agency met us at the ferry dock, took us to pick up our rental car, and let us follow her to the house for the first time. She gave us a tour of the house, a book and advice on things to do & restaurants, etc, and the refrigerator even had essentials in it to buy us time before we needed to head to the grocery store. Beit Hawa was exactly as pictured. We were with our parents, so the separation between a master suite and the main house was nice, as we like to sleep in, and they are early risers. We spent time on the deck in the evenings, made use of the grill, and even used the telescope to look at the moon. Good location -- very quick drive to Cruz Bay for groceries, dining out, etc. We loved being right over the water -- gorgeous views from all the big windows. We would definitely return and recommend to friends.
We spent 8 wonderful days on St. John in July. This was our 3rd house rental on St. John and so far, Beit Hawa has been the best! Great location, comfortable beds, awesome breeze, sounds of waves crashing on the rocks, and a beautiful view. My husband and 2 daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Most nights we enjoyed cooking dinner together and used the grill often. I am counting down the days until my next vacation!
The views from this secluded villa are breath taking. reading a book out on the sundeck, listening to the surf coming in below you is sooo relaxing. A/C in bedroom can hardly cool the spacious master suite, so that could use updating. Otherwise there were no surprises at all. I highly recommend this villa. It is a ways from cruz bay, but it is 90% main roads to the villa and the drive only takes 5 minutes. We rented from st.john car rental and they let you park in their lot, so we were always close to the food and drinks.
What a beautiful place. It was by far more than I expected. We loved the hot tub in the evenings and sitting out on the deck with coffee in the mornings. The view was amazing, the wonderful smell of the flowers, the tree frogs and seeing a few inguanas running around was great. We were in St. John for my daughters wedding and we got some beautiful pictures at the place. The front doors made a great back ground and the spiral stair case made for some beautiful pictures. Thank you for a wonderful time and we hope to come back in the future.

We just returned from a week at Beit Hawa. Overall, a great place to stay and Catered To made the experience very smooth. Beit Hawa is 5-10 minute drive to Cruz Bay. By St. John standards it is a very easy drive, even at night. The house is spacious - we were six adults and did not feel crowded at any point. It is also well-equipped. The furniture and fixtures are not brand new, but everything is in working condition and clean. We were a bit concerned about lack of aC in the main house (the two loft bedrooms are located there), but because the house gets morning sun and is located at a breezy spot, heat was not an issue at all. All in all, we will certainly consider Beit Hawa for our next trip.
Spectacular, stunning, overwhelming ocean view from a fantastic located villa. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time, enjoyed the villa and the beaches on the island very much. The villa had great privacy and still close to the shopping center and the beaches. We had everything that we needed to spend a unforgettable time on that paradise island. Friends were already asking us for details to that villa. We hope to go back soon.
