Ebb-tide was a great time. We had 4 couples and the house and experience was amazing. The open air kitchen and large dining tables really made cooking and meals enjoyable. All rooms have their own air-conditioners which made it cool in the evenings. Private bathrooms were nice as well. Easy stroll to Chocolate Hole for shells, beach walks, and sight seeing.
10 of us stayed comfortably in this fantastic home at the lower section of Chocolate Hole. 6 adults, 4 kids under age of 13. About a mile from Cruz Bay, and conveniently located close to the Starfish market. Being near the shore was excellent for the kids to explore and find shells, hermit crabs, etc... while the parents relaxed. Side note - use insect/mosquito repellent in all of St John, you don't realize the little critters are biting you until you are bit up! We would love to go back again, again and again!
This was our sixth trip to STJ. As usual it was second to none and a highly recommend them for your vacation planning. Truly a great service. Ebb Tide was more beautiful than we could imagine and we will be staying there again next year! There was plenty of space and privacy and the layout was very nice. The Weber grill was great to cook our meals on and we enjoyed the patio space. The view was beautiful but not as nice as up on the hills but I wouldn't let that be detractor from renting Ebb Tide.
Before we arrived, our representative was super helpful in finding the right Villa and assisting us with other incidentals. We arrived and a courteous lady picked us up from the ferry and brought us to our Car Rental and then we followed her to the home where we got an overview. The property was perfect for us and felt very open and spacious. We are very big into water activities and twice spent an hour or so snorkeling right from the home (stay 30 feet of the shore and head towards the open water for to see the best fish, the current and swells pick up if you go around the bend). There are lots of rocks and sea urchins in front of the property, so we accessed the water from a beach to the left of the property. While there was better snorkeling around the Island, it was nice to have an option only 50 feet away. Since we were close to the water, we knew there would be more bugs then if we stayed in the hills but being right on the water was our preference. The house had everything we needed and the rooms were large. It even had two washers and dryers. While the pool is small, it was big enough to cool off in. It was a nice touch that there was a house keeper mid week. Also, the home is a short 8 minute drive to downtown, and about a 20-30 minute drive to the Beaches.
If you have kids, this is the house. beach, pool, iguanas, lizards, birds, turtles and good snorkeling. I might also add a very nice Webber grill for dad.
This was a great house for 2 families with adult kids. Nice view of Chocolate Hole that had very good snorkeling that you could walk to. We used this bay a lot for both swimming and snorkeling, a great plus. It was calm and clean water. It was a very quiet location that was close to town, groceries and the only gas station. The house came with everything you needed for a good vacation on the beach. Only the bedrooms have aC so the great room has 4 ceiling fans. The pool is small but wonderful for relaxing and cooling down. We ate all of our meals at the large outside table. My only complaints are the refrigerator had a hard time keeping all of the items cold, you needed bottled water to drink because like all houses the water is from a cistern and bring bug spray, it is buggy. A extra cooler for beer and water would take off the pressure off the refrigerator. The two upstairs bedrooms are pretty equal in size but much larger than the two nice bedrooms downstairs, so if 4 couples wanted to rent the accommodations would not be equal. I would definitely rent this house and in this bay again.
We had a wonderful experience at Ebb Tide. Three couples shared the home and each of us had our private space. Looking out over the sailboats moored in the Hole was a beautiful sight every morning as we drank our coffee next to the pool. Tom was "Johnny on the Spot" when we had difficulty with something. I can't even remember what it was, now. I highly recommend the company and Ebb Tide.
We have been coming to St. John for 20 years. I know now what I have been missing the past 20 years. We had a really nice welcome basket to greet us at our rental home after a very long day of travel. It was very much appreciated. Since we had some travel delays with the airline and it caused us to miss our car rental. The house was wonderful and we really enjoyed the beauty of the place and the surroundings. Ebb Tide has a really nice beach to explore which was perfect for our 10 year old. Would def stay here again. Thanks for the wonderful experience
