My husband and I stayed at this villa in early October for our honeymoon. The house is wonderfully situated atop a quiet hill with amazing views of the sea, Chocolate Hole and St. Croix. It's 10 minutes from anywhere you'd want to go. The house and amenities (beach towels, chairs, a blender, two grills, and laundry) were perfect for what we needed plus the pool is amazing. We can't wait to go back.
You will not be disappointed! From the moment we entered the house, we were overwhelmed. It looks exactly like the pictures. The view is spectacular. After spending the days at the beach and exploring the island we would spend the evenings grilling some steaks and just enjoying the deck and the pool. A special thanks to Claudia and Javier for sharing their home and making our 2012 Thanksgiving week one we will never forget. We will be back!
My wife, my 21 year old son & 17 yr daughter, our best friend and I spent the last week in June at Mar de Amores on St. John and it was even better than we'd hoped (web photos do not do justice). The living room opens to an amazing deck with pool and a million dollar view of Chocolate Hole and accompanying Bays. The bedrooms are air conditioned which made sleeping during a very humid week restful. The villa is at the very top of a really fun winding road that climbs a pretty steep hill (jeep or 4 wheel drive essential). It is private and did I mention the view? Worth the climb every time, and literally minutes from the Town of Cruz Bay. The villa manager, Myrtle was a pleasure and did everything to help make our stay terrific. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on. Even my two kids unplugged, relaxed, and didn't want to leave. Needless to say, we highly recommend Mar De Amores and hope to return as soon as possible.
Beautiful view from the villa. A romantic and relaxing stay. Secluded and quiet. Drive up to villa frightening until you realize that your vehicle is capable of going up and around those steep curves! Well worth the drive!
