Can't thank you enough for helping us get over there and to the Villa so late at night. I know that was not something you had to do and we all are grateful for your help. The first morning there (Sun.) Tom and I awoke to the most beautiful view we have ever had at a home while staying there . All of my family found it breathtaking. As we explored acqua Blu we just fell totally in love with it and everything around it. Tom and I have been coming over for 7 to 10 days each year for 9 years now. It was however the first time for our children and grandchildren. Little Taylor and aaron , our grandbabies, I know they are not really babies at 10 yrs., but to us they will always be ...just absolutely lived in that pool when they couldn't be at the beach. I never thought of a pool being a "needed" thing until this time. They actually learned how to snorkel in one day in that pool before trying it out in the beautiful sea. We had family dinners at that enormous table almost every night. I always had the pleasure of wiping it down afterwards...have to tell you...I was tired by the time I made it all the way around ! I wish I could be cleaning it down tonight though. We all agreed that we have never slept as soundly as we did in the beds there. Ours was the St. Thomas room and it was wonderful. I hope we didn't leave it in too much of a mess for your housekeeper. We tried hard to do as much as we could to tidy things up before leaving, but honestly we didn't want to leave and let anyone else come in and take our place. The entire family has all agreed that if we get to come back together next summer...7 days is going to have to become 10 days !! This is an amazing Villa with plenty of room for 2 to 10 and everyone have all the privacy they need. Roads to Villa are all paved and concrete with enough parking to easily put 4 vehicles. The area is so safe and secure feeling that you never feel concerned. Short walk to a beach for limin' all day.
This is the third property we've rented on St. John, and this house far outshines the others. It is simply perfect. The views, the breezes, the comfortable furniture, the gorgeous pool and to top it all off, the ability to hop down the stairs to the wine room and pick out a great bottle to have with dinner. It was actually difficult to tear ourselves away from the house each day in order to enjoy the rest of the island. We will try very very hard to schedule our trips around the availability of this house, as anything else could only disappoint us after this experience. As my sometimes difficult-to-please teenage daughter put it, "this is like a movie star vacation." Our "BEST vacation ever."
We are a huge fans of St. John and have visited annually for the last seven years. Of all the places we have stayed during our visits, Acqua blu was our favorite, hands down! We have young children, and it was the most accommodating that we have found. Wonderful views, awesome kitchen, relaxing spots everywhere you turn, and very private location made it our most enjoyable stay yet!
