My family of 11 came there to St. John. It was extremely nice to have the community living room and kitchen and then have our separate quarters come bed time. The pool of course all the kids loved. We didn't need to bring anything with us but bathing suits and pj's cause we were either at the beach or in the pool until bedtime. I would suggest Vida De Mar to anyone that has a large group coming and the service was wonderful. They met us at the dock and took us to get the car and then to the house and made sure we understood all the functions of the house. Cool outside showers!!! Also great snorkeling right there at the house - if you didn't want to you would not even have to leave the house...
The house was wonderful, we were 5 couples (all family) and each had our privacy. The pool and deck made for great evenings of dining and sing alongs and Of course the views along with all of natures creatures gave us plenty to look at everyday. Jason was great with a follow up call to make sure we were settled in after we got lost our first trip back to the house. After we got our directions straight the location was easy into town and the market. We had a problem with a water pump and it was fixed almost as soon as it happened. Brian who takes care of the maintenance and repairs on the house was great. He gave me his card so if any problems occurred we could call him direct. I can't think of one thing I didn't like about the house, but my favorite was the outdoor shower in our room. We spent a week on a boat before coming to the house so the shower was a big hit with us. If we get back to St John, Vida De Mar will be our first choice.
It was the easiest way to have a vacation for 10 people. We all had our privacy, but plenty of time together in the wonderful living/dining/kitchen area. Ending each night in the hot tub was a favorite. The private beach was an added bonus; did some swimming and snorkeling. One of our more adventurous men slept in the hammock a few nights. Said he wanted to get the sound of the waves into his head. The location was excellent; close to town, but completely private. The staff of Catered to were very helpful in planning this vacation and on time in meeting us and getting us settled; then gave us the keys and left us alone.
Located on Dever's Bay with your own hammock on the beach. The snorkeling is awesome. The villa is set up perfect for families to have plenty of family time together and then go off to separate bedrooms for privacy. We opted to have some groceries delivered before our arrival. Great if you are low on time. The grocery store is not huge but, it will save on eating out. I strongly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen. The location is just a short drive to Cruz Bay. I have not one bad thing to say about Vida De Mar. It's a Villa our family will be talking about for years to come. Hopefully we will be able to come back again!
We had a wonderful stay at Vida de Mar. With 9 adults it is often difficult to find a place to accommodate us. This place did that and more. Great location. Easy taxi into town. Pool and private beach so if you don't want to go and explore the beautiful bounties the island has to offer...it's cool to stay around the house.
We were a party of 10, with 4 adult children, along with their 2 spouses and 2 significant others. The accommodations were perfect as each couple had their own little wing so to speak. The kitchen was so well equipped for preparing meals at home. The location was the best not only because we had our own beach along with the picture perfect views, sunsets and all, not to mention the close proximity to Cruz Bay and beaches. We rented our cars at STT airport and stopped at Cost U Less on our way to the Red Hook Ferry and were able to stock the bar and the kitchen with very affordable items before going to St. John. All in all it was a vacation all of us will never forget. Thank you Tiffany and Scot for sharing your beautiful home in paradise!
From even before our arrival on St. John to the end of our stay, we could not have asked for better service. They were able and willing to answer all questions and were incredibly wonderful to deal with even with a last minute change in travel plans. Vida De Mar is everything one could ask for in a vacation home. Great location, beautiful grounds, unbelievable views, proximity to town, soothing sound of the surf, and perfect accommodations for a group of 10. Hope to be back next year!
