LOVED our stay!
Posted on: 4/17/2017
I absolutely LOVED our stay here! Everything was perfect. Without a doubt stay here! The apartment was stocked with no worries. And the large back deck was my favorite spot! I felt comfortable and relaxed here just as you should when on vacation. I do have to say though.. we paid a $45.00 service fee and was pretty much given a clean up todo list upon departure. Even though My boyfriend and I always clean up after ourselves and were doing it anyway I didn't like it being asked when paying a service fee. Also since our check out time was 10:00am (kinda early specially when everyone else runs off island time) and Check in is 4:00pm there was plenty of time for house keeping to do what was asked of us. Being they were coming right behind us. But all in all really enjoyed every bit of thought in effort made into our stay! Brittany was very helpful, kind, and informative!
Response
Thanks for your review and for sharing your feedback and suggestions Jessica! You and your boyfriend were great guests and we appreciate you choosing Island Abodes. Unfortunately we're unaware of a $45.00 service fee, as we do not charge a service fee to our guests. I have reviewed your final bill from your stay with us and cannot locate a $45.00 charge. However, I do see a $21.00 fee to Airbnb, which they collect. We do apologize if you were mistakenly charged and please do follow up with me so that we can be sure to take care of it for you if necessary. We also want to apologize if you were inconvenienced by the Check-Out list. We certainly didn't mean for it to be a list of things to worry about, and we created it simply to inform our guests of needed information: where to leave their keys, where to take the trash out to avoid the island insects, to please turn off the lights and fans to save electricity, etc. The reason for a 10am check-out is so that when other guests arrive early

Chloe
Enjoyable Stay!
Posted on: 4/17/2017
We had a wonderful time staying at Brittany's. The apartment was clean and the view from balcony was so beautiful! It is located on a hill so it'll be convenient for people who drive, but we pretty much hiked to the apartment from Cruz Bay and it wasn't bad at all! Brittany is also super accommodating and approachable. This is by far the best experience I've had with Airbnb, thank you Brittany and Robert for making our stay so enjoyable!
Response
Aww what a great review, thank you Chloe! Robert and I are so honored to be considered your best Airbnb experience, and we can't thank you for enough for sharing your feedback! Thank you for the details regarding the location and condition of the accommodations. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future! Thanks again.

Response
Hi John! Thank you for your review of the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade. So happy to hear you found your Island Abodes accommodations to be conveniently located and of great value! We sure do love those sweeping Caribbean views from the private deck, too. Come back to visit us on St. John again soon!

Mike
Fantastic Host!
Posted on: 4/17/2017
Our host was fantastic! She emailed us everything to expect in advance and gave us tips about what to pack and how the island is set up. The apartment was so clean and stunning views! They even had a welcome bowl with a note and some treats when we arrived. We can't wait to visit again and stay there! We had a full kitchen, access to a grill and they even provided beach chairs and a cooler! Our hosts went above and beyond our expectations!
Response
Mike, I'm so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade! It was our pleasure hosting you in our little piece of paradise. I am thrilled that the suite exceeded your expectations and that you found it clean and well stocked. That Caribbean view is pretty incredible, if we do say so ourselves! Glad you were able to take it all in. Robert and I can't wait to welcome you back to Island Abodes for your next St. John vacation!

Donald
Awesome View & Hosts
Posted on: 4/17/2017
We spent 3 days at Brittany and Robert's place. The view is awesome and Brittany met us at check in and checked in everyday to make sure everything was good. She offered suggestions and was very helpful. She advised us to rent a 4 wheel drive and I rented a car....I would suggest that you listen to her and rent a jeep to get to their place. You are close to town (3 min drive) but it feels like you are in the rainforest with great vistas. The place had everything you could want or need.
Response
Donald, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay in the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade. I'm glad you found the suite to be well stocked with amenities and that you enjoyed the beautiful Caribbean views. Robert and I strive to provide excellent customer service to our guests so I'm happy to hear that you found my suggestions helpful! A Jeep rental definitely enhances the St. John experience. We hope to welcome you back to Love City for another stay with Island Abodes soon!

Perfect Place to Spend My Birthday
Posted on: 4/17/2017
We truly enjoyed our stay! Beautiful view and the landscaping on the property is impressive and inspiring. Fruit trees and tropical flowers abound! The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you need to prepare entire gourmet meals. We went to the grocery store and cooked all of our meals here! My boyfriend is a great chef and he wanted for nothing in the well-equipped kitchen. Great movies available for free on the tv. We loved the outdoor daybed for afternoon lounging while enjoying the view. The bed...I could have slept for DAYS in that comfortable bed and the AC keeps the place as cool as you like it! The shower is creative and awesome. I wish I would have taken a picture. You feel like you are in an outdoor shower, yet you have the privacy of it being indoors. I sat for nearly half an hour sipping tea made in the Keurig watching 5 iguanas in the nearby tree happily chomping their breakfast of leaves. Brittany and Robert are conscientious and gracious guests. Robert wanted to do a little yard work nearby at around noon and checked with us first to make sure we weren't sleeping. We actually were and he said he would come back and do it in the afternoon. I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere where the owners were thoughtful enough to change their schedule to accommodate our lazy day. We will definitely be back!

Perfect in Every Way
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Brittany and Robert have thought of everything to make guests comfortable. They are friendly, helpful hosts. The One Bedroom Suite is spacious and well appointed. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed.The bathroom has a roomy, unique shower and a sink with plenty of shelves and drawers. The full kitchen is well equipped with full oven and microwave, and a Kurig coffee maker --- coffee is included! The adjoining sitting area has a flat screen TV with Netflix included. The BEST part is the very private, large deck overlooking Cruz Bay with a table for meals. Also, a lovely day bed with mosquito netting and indirect lighting for evening reading or naps. The carpet makes it a great place for a bit of morning yoga while the humming birds and finches flutter and the iguanas perch on neighboring trees to catch the sun. The whole complex is immaculately maintained with lovely trees, shrubs and flowers. The common area includes a brand new gas grill. Every unit has an assigned, off the street parking space! In addition, the location is very desirable. Literally, five minutes to a large, complete grocery market, liquor store, drugs store. The north shore beaches are about a 15 minute drive, and Coral Bay is about a 40 minute drive. Very convenient. We enjoyed visiting with our hosts- a lovely, hard working couple who know how to make their guests welcome and happy.

Thank you so much, Linda, for the kind words and awesome review of your stay in the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade! Robert and I are so happy to hear you found the accommodations to be comfortable, clean, conveniently located, and well stocked with amenities. We absolutely love the private outdoor deck, too; it’s an island living essential! It sounds as though you were able to relax and unwind while on your Caribbean vacation, which is what we love to hear from our guests. Robert and I are always available to answer questions and give recommendations! We hope to welcome you back to Island Abodes and sunny St. John soon.

Serene & Comfortable
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My husband and I scored when we chose this property on a recent trip (our first) to St. John. It's everything we hoped for, based on the reviews, and more. It's the perfect size and layout for a couple. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare breakfast, pack a lunch for the beach, and enjoy happy hour snacks while watching the sunset. The bed was very comfortable and we found that turning on the a/c just before bed provided a perfect temp. I absolutely loved the shower! The decor is very fresh and beachy. Everything we needed for the beach (chairs, noodles, cooler, towels) was provided, and very much appreciated. We had a Jeep for our visit, but decided to walk into town (20 minute walk) before dark and took a taxi home ($5/pp, plus tip). Once we were more comfortable with driving and finding parking, we'd drive into town for dinner. The Starfish Market is conveniently located just down the hill from the property. I recommend buying a bag of ice to keep in the freezer for drinks and the cooler. Bring a good book and settle into the day bed on porch--heaven! I can't wait to return for another visit!

Beautiful Views & Close to Town
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Just had a great 5 night stay in the One Bedroom Suite, Island Adobe takes great care of their property and their guests. Very clean and quite place to stay. We had all the amenities needed for a quick breakfast daily, packed a lunch for beach hopping, close to town, easy access to retreat back for a few hours before going into town for dinner. Enjoyed drinking coffee and watching Cruz Bay from the patio. Thank you for the use of the beach blanket and towels. There is also chairs, pool noodles, and an ice cooler for use. Great place to stay. We look forward to our next trip and will definitely use Island Adobe again. If you get a chance make sure to book a boat charter with Sunshine Day Charters, Captain Rob will take good care of you and take you to the magic wonders of the BVIs.


Amy
Great Time
Posted on: 3/30/2017

Privacy and beautiful views makes your place a very unique experience. The views of Cruz Bay in the morning and in the evening are wonderful. We enjoyed having drinks and talking on the patio. Your condo is set up wonderfully. Perfect size for us. Definitely happy about the kitchen area, we cooked breakfast and made snacks for beach hopping. The condo is close to Cruz Bay and easy to access. This made it convenient for changing and resting before going to dinner. Few dinner spots were Dog House Pub, the chicken tenders and chili cheese Taylor tots....wow, Joe's Rum Shack (had to try it was busy), we tried Zo Zo's great place beautiful view, great bartenders, and the small Caribbean Food place has the best chicken. I cannot remember the name of it but it is close to where the ferry drops off, it is a bit of a wait though. The bedroom was nice and cool and the standing fan provided great white noise for those like myself who need to hear something. I almost thought about not turning it on because the tree frogs were chirping nicely. The curtains and blinds block all light, again great for someone like me. We loved the natural look of the shower and the outdoor feel of it. Providing the beach mat, towels, chairs, and the cooler was a wonderful treat. We brought our Yeti cooler and checked it with goodies so we wouldn't have to spend much time at the grocery store. Having the Market so close to the condo was very convenient plus the Gourmet Market for liquor was perfect! The bowl of goodies you provided us was a very kind welcoming. We did use Sunshine Day Charters to go to Jost, Captain Rob was great. Very fun time and highly recommend it. You guys are doing a great job with your rentals, we looked at all of them. St John is an amazing place. It is definitely Island life but we love it. We will be back and hope to book early enough to grab one of your rentals. Thank you again! Amy and Casey

We can't wait to return again and stay at Island Abodes!
Posted on: 3/24/2017

My fiancé and I stayed at the One Bedroom Suite in Cruz Bay and had the experience of a lifetime. The accommodations were perfectly serene and the view was spectacular. The unit was well equipped with kitchenware, beach supplies and shower essentials. We rented a Jeep as Brittany suggested and spent ample time exploring parts of the island Brittany so kindly recommended. We were able to enjoy breakfast and coffee on the deck and pack lunches for our daytime adventures. Brittany were very communicative and quick to reply both prior to arriving in St. John and during our stay, for which we are eternally grateful.

Sunset Serenade apartment was great. Even before we arrived i was impressed with Brittany's quick responses to my questions and emails. The apartment was very clean and contained everything we needed and then some. I appreciated the items in the fridge, ( mayo, coffee, etc) so we didn't have to waste money on odds and ends. The grill was a plus! The view was spectacular! All in all, a wonderful time was had by all!

Beautiful View and Accommodations
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My boyfriend and I rented the one bedroom suite at Sunset serenades at the very beginning of the season. It was our first visit to St. John so we planned on doing research before we came to educate ourselves as much as possible. Brittany was always readily available via e-mail or cell phone to answer any and all questions that I had - big or small, related to our accommodations or not! Everything regarding our rental was laid out in advance in great detail so we knew what to expect in that arena. When we arrived, our rental was clean, spacious and had a spectacular view of Cruz Bay. It was everything we were hoping for and more. Our visit was too short, and we will definitely be back! Thanks so much Brittany.

Response

Carly, we loved hosting you and Josh in the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade! Thank you for taking the time to leave your review on VRBO. I am always ready and willing to assist with travel and island questions so that you can experience the best vacation possible, especially when visiting St. John for the first time! Thrilled to hear that you found the One Bedroom Suite to be clean and spacious. It sounds like the panoramic view from the private deck took your breath away, as it does ours! Please do come back soon for another stay in Love City with Island Abodes.

This place was great! Brittany was very helpful and added extra little touches that made the stay even better! The view is wonderful! The location is great! We rented a car to get around, but also walked down and back to Cruz bay one night, which didn't take too long. The place is also very clean and appears to be recently remodeled. Couldn't of found a better place to stay!

It was off season in St John and we really didn't know what to expect . There were a few places closed but enough open that we found everything we needed . Brittany was very very helpful , unit was very clean and we were upgraded free of charge because of slow season (THANK YOU BRITTANY) . We rented a jeep close to red hook ferry that I would highly recommend. Driving on the left was Fine , I was worried but had a good navigater. The highlight of our trip was a boat trip to BVI on Bad Kitty , highly recommend . Overall experience was 5 Star thanks mostly to the wonderful Villa , Thanks Brittany for making our stay a wonderful one. 

Response

Ben & Pam, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay in the One Bedroom Suite at Sunset Serenade. There is something special about visiting St. John during the off season and it sounds as if your expectations for your Caribbean vacation were exceeded! No matter what the season, there are always places open on island to stock up on necessities, enjoy a decadent meal, sip delicious cocktails, and relax gorgeous sunset views. I love to hear that you mastered left side driving while exploring with a Jeep rental. Having your own transportation during your stay is definitely helpful! Bad Kitty runs an incredible BVI trip – so glad you had fun! We hope to welcome you back to Island Abodes soon.

Perfect vacation and wedding on the beach!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

We stayed a week at this unit and the it was perfect for the two of us. It had a beautiful view of the water on a very spacious porch, that I spent a lot of time on enjoying all the tropical trees and birds and iguanas. The unit was equipped with everything from sunscreen to beach chairs and umbrella and cooler and books to read that we really only needed to bring our clothes. The owners have everything organized and labeled from parking to any directions you might need on your journeys around the island. We rented a car and it was so close to town and th grocery store. They also recommend great places to eat and tell you about all the beaches you can visit on the island. I have never rented from someone on VRBO that was as helpful and truly wanted to make our trip a memorable one. Thank you for letting us enjoy your piece of paradise.

Response

We appreciate you taking the time to post such a great review on VRBO Libby! And thank you for choosing Island Abodes for your trip to St. John - we know you had many options when finding a place to stay.

Thank you so much for such a great review. You were a great guest and we'd love to welcome you back to our piece of paradise anytime!

We had an amazing time on St.John! The views were spectacular, and I enjoyed drinking my coffee on the balcony every morning. Brittney and Robert really go the extra mile for their guests. They provided chairs, a cooler, beach towels, and snorkel masks! This made it much easier to pack and we had everything we needed for the beach. They were also available when questions came up, and it was great to have a local to tell you what to do. I can't wait to plan my next trip with them!! I would highly recommend them and their property!

I absolutely loved my stay in the One-Bedroom Apartment at Sunset Serenade! The view was spectacular and the day bed out on the porch was o-so-cozy. It was so nice to have a full and equipped kitchen to cook meals. The unit had everything I needed like shampoo, body wash, blow-dryer, cooler, chairs, pool noodles, and more! I also loved the front porch with the garden view. The breeze was so nice and it's a great place to relax. Brittany and Robert made this unit feel like home! I had such a great time that I will be back very soon ;)

Great 1-bedroom
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Our 23 and 18 year old children stayed in the 1-bedrom while we stayed in the Penthouse during our family vacation. Brittany and Robert were gracious hosts and attended to every need - from the welcome basket to towels, chairs and coolers for the beach. The space was just the right size with a bed that slept great, amazing "outdoor-feel" shower, Keurig and a great view from the patio. We really enjoyed our time at Island Abodes and hope to return one day!

Response

Thank you for the review Penny! Robert and I truly enjoyed your whole family and we can't thank you for enough for choosing Island Abodes and for taking the time to post a review. We really hope your "kids" enjoyed their stay in the One-bedroom and that they had everything they needed. Thanks again and we hope to welcome you back in the future!

Wonderful Hosts!

My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom unit at Sunset Serenade last week. It was wonderful. Very clean, a comfy bed and had all the accommodations of home. We loved the beautiful view of Cruz Bay. Brittany and Robert were WONDERFUL hosts. While we were on the island we kept hearing horror stories from people we met about their accommodations from the places they were staying at. We kept telling them to visit the Island Abode website for their future visits. No complaints and WE WILL BE BACK.

Fantastic accommodations and hospitality! My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom apartment which also had a living space, full kitchen and private bathroom! We came to St John with two other couples who stayed upstairs in separate units. Perfect accommodations for hanging with your friends but having your own private space. Brittany has thought of everything you need at your home away from home! My husband and I will definitely be coming back to stay in a Sunset Serenade unit!

Clean, comfortable place

We had a wonderful week enjoying the hospitality of Brittany and Robert at their one bedroom home rental on St John. It had everything one would need both to stay at the house and go off to the fabulous beaches for the day. We made use of the cooler, beach mat and beach towels every day. Returning back to a clean comfortable place with a hot shower, big deck overlooking the bay, and finally a comfortable bed completed the day. Thanks again. We'll be back.” –Lillian “Just got home from a wonderful week at the one-bedroom apartment at islandabodes. I am ready to go back! Brittany and Robert have worked hard to make everything beautiful and welcoming. The apartment was beautifully furnished. We enjoyed the amazing view of Cruz Bay and the convenience of riding to town and the north shore beaches.

The place is great!

I had the pleasure to meet both Brittany N Bob. The place is great! Clean n well equipped. they covered everything you could think of to make your stay comfortable. The view is amazing! I would definitely recommend having a vehicle to get to and from town as well as around the island.

Thanks so much Chris, Robert and I really enjoyed meeting you! You were such a great guest and we can't thank you enough for posting such a nice review on Airbnb! It sounds like you enjoyed your stay, the view and your comfy accommodations. Again, thank you and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Happy Holidays!

Memorable Trip
Posted on: 10/3/2016

It was a memorable trip and our first time to St John. Our host, Brittany, was great. We were arriving in the morning and she offered a number of options to guide us to the apartment. She picked us up in town and we followed her to the one bedroom apartment, which helped familiarize ourselves with the winding streets and hills of St John. The view from the balcony and our bedroom was amazing. The apt was very clean and well equipped. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a Keurig coffee machine. I loved the shower with its loose pebble flooring. She did not miss a thing. We had beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, bug spray, umbrella and even some snack bars to take with us on our outings. We made good use of the Roku (with subscription) and watched a few movies at night. Brittany was always a phone call away if we needed any assistance. I would highly recommend this apt to anyone visiting St John.”

Response

Thanks so much Neil! Robert and I loved having you both as guests and were so glad to hear that you enjoyed both your first trip to St. John and also your stay with us at Island Abodes. Nothing makes us happier than to hear that the apartment and the amenities exceeded your expectations and that you had everything you needed for a great day at the beach! Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback and post it on Airbnb. We hope to welcome you back very soon and would love to have you anytime!

We will certainly be back
Posted on: 4/17/2017

This place couldn't really be much better. Incredible location : overlooking Cruz Bay, up in the hills, iguanas in the rubber trees, cool passing rain showers. Brittany and Robert were exceptionally helpful; picking us up at the ferry and making themselves available for anything we needed. They have a wealth of information regarding St. John's. The neighborhood itself is quiet and peaceful. The apartment was set up perfectly for a vacation week: full kitchen, super comfortable bed and a rock tile shower that was unique and wonderful. It was hard to leave the large relaxing balcony everyday, which offers an incredible view of the entire west side of the island. Caribbean air flows through at all hours. We cannot not recommend IA highly enough (and we will certainly be back).

Response

We can't thank you for enough for your review Kristen! And congratulations again on your recent nuptials! We really appreciate you providing so many details about the accommodations and your stay with us at Island Abodes. We've gained a lot of knowledge over the years living on this little rock, and we hope being able and willing to share that with our guests is just one more thing that sets us apart! We'd absolutely love to have you guys back, so please do keep us in mind when planning your next trip to St. John.. Thank you again and best wishes!

the space was gorgeous
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My wife and I stayed For 3 nights the space was gorgeous, very welcoming and clean. It has everything you would expect and more. From extra towels for the beach to beach chairs and cooler for your drinks. The sunset from the balcony is priceless and balcony sofa very comfortable for an afternoon nap. Perfect for couple. Highly recommended. Thank you Britanny

Response

Thank you Fernando! We loved having you and your wife stay with us - you were such great guests. It sounds as though you enjoyed the property and found it very clean, inviting, and well-equipped. Thank you for posting a review and for your recommendation. We truly appreciate it and hope to see you again soon!

Highly Recommend
Posted on: 4/17/2017

We had an excellent stay at IslandAbodes one bedroom apartment. Brittany met us at the ferry dock and took us to the market to do some shopping. She provided us with some suggestions on restaurants to visit. The apartment itself was as advertised, and the view from the balcony was incredible, we saw the most amazing sunset! It's a tough walk to town, so we rented a Jeep our last two days. I highly recommend Brittany's apartments and would definitely stay during our next visit.”

Response

We can't thank you enough for your great review Steven! It was truly my pleasure to provide transportation upon you arrival. Robert and I just want to ensure our guests feel welcome and comfortable with the island as soon as they arrive. We hope you enjoyed the restaurant recommendations - we love to share our favorites with our guests! We were so pleased to hear you enjoyed the One Bedroom Apartment and that you plan to stay with us again. We'd love to welcome you back and think you'll be impressed with any of our Island Abodes properties. Thanks again Steven!

Amazing Hosts
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Brittany and Robert were amazing hosts for our first trip to St. John. They went above and beyond to make my family and I feel welcome, including meeting us at the car barge, providing good recommendations for restaurants/beaches, and even giving us a free upgrade for part of our stay. The amenities of the apartment are top notch and the unit has a great view of Cruz Bay. They also conveniently provide everything you need for a day at the beach (towels, mat, chairs, cooler, bug spray). I cannot recommend the Island Abodes team enough and will not hesitate to book with them in the future. Thanks again Brittany and Robert!”

Response

Thanks so much Albert! We appreciate you taking the time to give us such a great review. You and your family were a pleasure to host and we're just happy to hear you guys all had a good time and had everything you needed during your stay! We're excited for your next trip and thank you again for both your review and recommendation. We hope to see you soon and thanks for choosing Island Abodes!


Gary
Amazing!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

The trip to Cruz Bay was amazing. Brittany was a wonderful host and took care of us the moment we got off of the ferry. She was very accommodating and her setup at the apartment prepares you with everything you'll need for your trip. The one bedroom apartment was everything it was portrayed to be. A fantastic patio and patio view. Full kitchen, beautiful bathroom and bedroom. The apartment was very comfortable and a delight to come back to at the end of our long days. The location is a quick 5 minute cab ride into town. Things couldn't have gone better on our trip and Brittany's place was a huge reason why.

Response

So nice to read your review Gary, we can't thank you enough for taking the time to share your feedback on Airbnb! Your kind words are much appreciated and we're just so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us at Island Abodes. Based on your review, it sounds as though you really had a great time on St. John, and we're just happy to have been a part of it. Thanks again and please know we'd love to have you back anytime!

Amazing View and Great Owners!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My husband and I, along with our two little girls, were the first to stay in Robert and Brittany's 1 bedroom condo. We had a great experience! The owners were very welcoming and accommodating, and even took my husband to the grocery store as soon as we arrived. This condo has a large porch with an amazing view, and we loved hanging out there sipping coffee or eating breakfast. The bed was very comfortable, and all the windows in the bedroom looking out onto lush vegetation and the view of the ocean made for a great scene to wake up to each morning. We also loved the unique bathroom. The whole setup made for a peaceful and relaxing getaway in paradise. We were sad to leave and would definitely enjoy staying at this place again!

Response
Thank you so much for your review Christine! As our first guests, you will always hold a special place in our hearts and we appreciate you taking the time to post a review regarding your stay! It sounds as though you and your family had a lovely stay and we were so pleased to hear you enjoyed the view, the comfy bed and porch and bathroom! Our goal is to provide you with a relaxing stay and we love nothing more than to hear that we did just that. We too were sad to see you go and look forward to your return!

Awesome Sunsets
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Our stay on St John was fabulous. We had a one bedroom, one bath room with a roomy deck overlooking the Ocean, Cruz Bay, and Mongoose Junction. The second night we were sitting on the deck having a drink before we went out for dinner and experienced the most beautiful sunset. We made it a point the rest of the trip to be on our Deck to duplicate that wonderful sight. But, what really made our mini vacation was the hospitality and advice we got from our hosts. We went to several beaches, took a private boat trip, went snorkeling, hiked, played tennis, got a massage, eat lunch and dinner at many different unique places and best of all we did all that within our budget. We will definitely go back to St John and request the same accomodations. Fantastic Vacaction.

Response
Thanks for your review! Aren't those St. John sunsets just beautiful? Seeing them is one of our favorite things about living here! We were happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to do so many awesome activities during your stay on St. John. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Thanks again.

Wonderful one-bedroom with great proximity to St John
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My husband & I stayed here for a week in March 2015 on our babymoon. I was 6 months pregnant & it was just what we needed. A great unit with a full kitchen, stunning views, and wonderful owners. We wanted to relax, enjoy St. John, hike & enjoy the beaches. The unit is great. Great views from the bedroom and living space/kitchen. Outdoor seating perfect for breakfast, which we made each day at the unit, & happy hour during sunset. One of my favorite days was just watching the iguanas climb the trees around us and sun themselves. The unit has no AC which was NO issue for us. The tropical breeze hits the unit and the ceiling fans were plenty. Robert & Brittany are wonderful hosts. They helped us find the grocery store, pick beach spots & get around overall. US cells work there, so it was super easy to text Robert and get his advice. They are like personal concierges! They had beach chairs, towels, coolers, BBQ grill, fully equipped kitchen & were so helpful. We would definitely recommend staying at one of Robert & Brittany's properties. Definitely rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle on St. John because the showers can hit and you still need to get up those hills. Having your own car to traverse the island is the only way to go.

Response
Many thanks for your review Jenny! We hope your babymoon was everything you hoped for and needed for your last vacation before your precious baby arrived. We do hope all is well and that the whole family is doing great! We appreciate your kind words and details regarding your stay with us. It was truly our pleasure to assist you during your time on St. John and we hope to welcome you back very soon, baby in tow! :) Thanks again!

Nicely done space above it all
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My family and I were recently looking for somewhere near Cruz Bay to rent and came across Island Abodes. Having not stayed on this side of the island previously it was nice to get the sunsets and a brilliant view over Cruz Bay. At night you would get some sounds drifting up but we found this to be pleasant - above it all but still close enough to get a vibe. The place itself was nicely done, high ceilings and slatted windows, and a very large balcony space where we spent a fair amount of time. The bathroom was excellent and it felt as if you were outdoors when taking a shower. The owners were very accommodating and reacted quickly to any request. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking for accommodation close to Cruz Bay.

Response
We appreciate your review and can't thank you enough for providing insight to your recent stay with us. It sounds as though you and your family enjoyed your time here on the island and that's all we ever hoped for. We were glad to hear you found us easy to get in touch with and accommodating and we do hope you'll consider staying with us again upon your return to St. John. Thanks again!

WE WILL BE BACK
Posted on: 6/23/2016
My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom unit at Sunset Serenade last week. It was wonderful. Very clean, a comfy bed and had all the accommodations of home. We loved the beautiful view of Cruz Bay. Brittany and Robert were WONDERFUL hosts. While we were on the island we kept hearing horror stories from people we met about their accommodations from the places they were staying at. We kept telling them to visit the Island Abode website for their future visits. No complaints and WE WILL BE BACK.

Great Vacation
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Highly recommend this vacation spot. Affordable, great location on St John, wonderful view of Cruz Bay, and convieniently located to shopping, grocery stores, bars, dinner, taxi's etc. The kitchen was perfect and our meals on the deck was ideal. The hosts went out of their way to accommodate us and the advise about what to do and where to go on St John saved us a ton of money. We will duplicate this vacation. It was great!!!

Response
Thank you for your recommendation and for taking the time to post a review on Vrbo! Both Robert and I were delighted to hear that you found your accommodations convenient with wonderful views and an ideal kitchen. It truly was our pleasure to assist you with local information and make your trip more affordable. We can't wait for your duplicate vacation... We'll be waiting! Thank you again.

Perfect Stay in the heart of paradise!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

We couldn't have asked for a better stay in St. John. The 1-bedroom was perfectly appointed, spacious, and the views from the deck were unbelievable. John and Brittany went out of their way to ensure we had the best time possible while we there providing us with some beach towels and chairs and even a cooler. The extra fans in the bedroom were a really nice touch as it did get a bit hot during the night time! The internet was fast and allowed me and my girlfriend to stay in touch in the evenings. The walk to Cruz Bay is pretty easy, though I wouldn't want to venture up the hills back from CB so I would definitely look to take a cab! Renting a Jeep on the island is definitely the way to go so you can head off to some of the more secluded beaches and hit up a grocery store. Breakfast each morning on the balcony was such a highlight of the trip. Thanks again Robert and Brittany! We'll definitely be back!

Response
Hi Mike! It sounds as though you thoroughly enjoyed your time on St. John, especially in our one-bedroom condo and we can't thank you enough for sharing your feedback. We appreciate your kind words and details for future guests and we hope to see you again real soon!

Great space, view, location and value
Posted on: 4/17/2017

I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment and was extremely satisfied! The unit contains everything you need...even a cooler and chairs for when you head to the beach for the day. The day bed on the LARGE patio was a great spot to lay and watch the stars or curl up with a good book. Location is close enough to Cruz Bay so you can enjoy all Cruz Bay has to offer but far enough away so you can enjoy the peace and quiet when you want it!!!

Response
Thank you for your review! We were very pleased to learn you had everything you needed while staying with us, that you found the location convenient, and that you were able to enjoy the day bed at night - the view of the stars on St. John is unparalleled and we were glad to hear you experienced that. Thanks again and we hope to see you again in the future!

Our Honeymoon
Posted on: 6/23/2016
We had a great time staying with Robert and Brittany. Robert even picked us up at the ferry, which was so awesome of him!! The apartment is fabulous. It wasn't just clean and had all the amenities, but it felt like staying at a 5 star hotel. The pictures don't do it just, it was super fancy inside and around the property. It's really close to town. One could walk if you wanted to but it was also super easy to catch a taxi into town. Cruz bay has everything you would want from a cute Caribbean vacation town, including shops, bars, restaurants and flea markets and of course beautiful beaches. We recommend renting a jeep at least for one or two days to explore the island. Our favorite beaches were waterlemon (amazing snorkeling) and maho bay (most beautiful white sand beach) we also loved cinnamon bay (best of both worlds with white sand beach and awesome snorkeling) I would definitely stay with Robert and Brittany again. They were great hosts who let us have our privacy but we're always available for answering questions and giving advise. Thank you for everything!!

Undoubtedly Recommendable!! A home away from home.
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My fiancé and I stayed in the one bedroom villa at Island Adobes, St. John. This villa is literally a 5 minute ride from the ferry dock and amazingly convenient for anyone, even if you didn't have a vehicle. It's near all the local restraunts, gas stations, and food markets. Upon first entry to the villa we immediately fell in love. The view is to die for and the villa was welcoming and extremely clean. We had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners by the name of Robert who immediately after introducing himself truly tried to attend to any needs we had which was very considerate especially after, all of our expectations were already met. We truly couldn't have asked for a better stay. We have been telling all of our friends and we plan on visiting again and we will refuse to stay anywhere else. We recorded the amazing sounds of nature and the sea breeze at night. Hoping to replicate it to play in our home. It was truly relaxing. It reminded us much of home. It had volted cielings, and an amazing patio area with a day bed that was great for our early morning coffee and island delicacy's we purchased on the island. To our surprise there was a Keurig which we loved. It was stocked with Starbucks and French Roast cups. This truly took me away because I came ready with instant coffee and it was a pleasure not having to submit to it when I am so use to our early morning Starbucks run before the office. Which also made the wifi so convenient. Thank you very much Brittany and Robert for amazing hospitality. You'll definitely see us again.

Response
Many thanks for your great review Danielle! We appreciate all of the details and were just delighted to hear that you and your fiance felt welcome and relaxed during your stay with us. It sounds as though you both had a wonderful time and we can't thank you enough for your recommendation. We hope the recording of the island sounds will tide you over until you come back to see us. We look forward to seeing you again!

Fantastic views of Cruz Bay!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My friend and I stayed in the one bedroom villa for 5 nights. We had everything we needed! Robert and Brittany were great! They were always available for anything we needed. Robert even gave us a ride to the beach one of our days without a Jeep. Our favorite time each day was sipping coffee and reading our books with the amazing view of Cruz Bay before we left each day. Although there is no A/C, we were comfortable at night with the fans. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I also recommend that a jeep is rented for anyone staying here. Although it is a short walk into town, the hills are quite steep and the roads get slippery when wet.

Response
Thanks Daphne! It sounds as though your 5 night stay went well and that you enjoyed your time with us. Robert and I truly enjoy making sure our guests are well taken care of and we did not mind assisting you at all! Thanks for your recommendations for future guests regarding a rental Jeep - they are definitely the way to go and best way to see the island! We were glad to hear you were comfortable and happy and we hope to welcome you back very soon!

This place is great!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

I usually don't bother to babble on about lodging. A hotel is a hotel. Etc. But this outfit is great. Quiet, perfect for St. John. Comfortable, simple, great views, terrific bathroom (I demand greatness in the shower.) Nice people and everything worked. No TV. No radio. No idiots on water skis or ATV's running loose. Town is 24 seconds down the hill - Island is 2 minutes to right and then up/down some hills that call for strong stomachs. St. John is still to top joint in the island chain and these people run a perfect place to drop - and stay.

The perfect island experience!

Our stay at Island Abodes was wonderful, and we're so grateful for the owner's flexibility with scheduling, etc. It made our stay so much more enjoyable. Our 1 bedroom apt. was very clean, and inviting. The view was excellent, and we loved the critters that hung about (outside). Very charming. Would definitely recommend this to friends. Thank you!!

Wonderful Experience!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Our stay at Island Abodes was amazing! We ended up on St. John with no where to stay, as our arrangements had fallen through. We found a hotel for our first night but we needed a place for the rest of the week. I found Island Aboades on Homeaway and emailed Robert and Brittany at 5 am, by 7am Brittany had emailed us back! She was extremely helpful and made sure we got into a room that night. We loved the one bedroom apartment! The balcony has an amazing view of the bay and very comfortable chairs for watching the sunset. We had a kitchen with everything we needed to cook/grill, including a keurig for morning coffee. The bathroom has a cool screened in shower with a rain shower head that was very relaxing after a day at the beach. The apartment does not have A.C. but they give you plenty of fans and it was not uncomfortable or hot at all. We loved this apartment and Robert and Brittany were great! We will recommend Island Abodes to anyone!

Response
It was my pleasure to ensure you had a place to stay Rebecca! We know things happen and we do our best to stay available for our guests and assist with anything you may need! We were just happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the condo to be comfortable and well-equipped. Thank you for the review and recommendation and please don't hesitate to call us next time you need a place to stay on St. John! We'd love to have you.

Robert and Brittany ROCK big time! The time we spent in their 1 bedrm apt was wonderful, and their flexibility with schedules made our stay very memorable and easy. We will most definitely stay there again next time. St. John is our most favorite vacation spot, and this place just made our experience better than ever. Thanks so much!

My girlfriend and I arrived in St John and the directions were great to find your property. My girlfriend has been to the island in the past but this was my first experience. When we arrived Brittany met us and was extremely welcoming. The views from the balcony and the bedroom were an absolute delight to wake up to every morning. The location is fantastic for experiencing all that the island has to offer. We will be returning to the island hopefully soon and we will definitely be booking to stay in your one bedroom again. Thank you for your hospitality.

Sunset Serenade
Posted on: 4/17/2017

My husband and I have been coming to SJ for a few years now, we are always impressed with the beautiful views that many properties offer and Island Abodes did not disappoint. Immediately upon arriving we were amazed at the beautiful, lush gardens surrounding this special property. We appreciated the close proximity to Cruz Bay as well. Entering the villa, we were blown away by the gorgeous views of Cruz bay and beyond. Every spare minute there was spent on the deck enjoying the iguanas and the views below. We also loved the unique, retro shower with rocks. The unit was well-equipped with all the amenities and comforts one would hope for while away from home. We highly recommend Island Abodes especially to anyone looking for a villa close to town, that provides many options for couples or families interested in staying together, yet having their own private unit. Thank you Brittany!

Response
We can't thank you enough for your review and recommendation for Island Abodes! We were so glad you chose to stay with us on this trip to St. John, as we know you had many beautiful options. It sounds as though you and your husband enjoyed many aspects of Sunset Serenade, and nothing makes us happier! Thank you again for your kind words and details regarding the property. We hope you'll consider staying with us next time you're on St. John either at Sunset Serenade or another one of our beautiful properties. Happy Holidays!

Wonderful Overall
Posted on: 4/17/2017

We arrived on Sunday and were picked up graciously by one of the owners around 3:30. The property itself was beautiful with an incredible view and access to town only a short drive away. All week, every need was met including free Wi-Fi, an excellent working kitchen, Netflix and Hulu services that we did not use but had to option to at no extra charge, and showers with windows that provided an interesting but secluded view for utmost privacy. Our shower did not work the first day but the owners were extremely apologetic and fixed it immediately. Would recommend this house and any others for all people (adventurous and not.) Child friendly and inviting, this is the perfect place to take a secluded vacation from your home on the beautiful island of St. John.

Response

Thanks Abby! We appreciate you taking the time to share a review on VRBO. It was our pleasure to pick you up from the ferry dock! We try to be constantly available to our guests and want to do everything possible to ensure you have the best stay during your time on this beautiful little island! We were glad to hear you enjoyed the amenities that come with Sunset Serenade and again, we apologize for the initial inoperable shower. It sounds as though you guys truly enjoyed your stay and we'd love to host you again in the future. Thanks again and take care!

New Year's on St. John
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Planning, communicating and making arrangements for pick-up and drop-off at the docks with Brittany was a breeze. And the unit was great. It had most everything you would need. The deck had a wonderful view of Cruz Bay although since we spent a lot of time on the other side of the island in Coral Bay we didn't take full advantage of it. The unit was clean and spacious for two people and everything worked well. (could have used a couple more lamps or overhead lights with more wattage - e.g. it was difficult to read in bed before lights-out and another light over the sink area would have been a plus at night). Thanks Brittany!

Response

Thanks for taking the time to post a review on VRBO Ray! I was glad to hear that you found the entire process of staying with us a breeze, even before you arrived on our tiny island. It was my pleasure to assist you and ensure y'all had the best stay possible. Thanks for the suggestion regarding more lighting. Robert and I will certainly see what we can do about that and we appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to improve our units. It sounds as though you had a great time on St. John and in our One-bedroom and we look forward to welcoming you back for another visit in the future. Thanks again Ray!

Paradise perfection

From the moment we booked our stay,Brittany and Robert were amazing, always responding in a very timely matter. When arrived in St Johns we were meet at the ferry, on the way to the rental, driving through town lots of new points of intrest were pointed out to us, since we hadn't been to the island in a couple years. Upon arriving at our unit, we were given lots of brochure and a list of taxi phone numbers. The one bedroom unit was amazing, way better than we expected, and impeccably clean. The views were superb, and everything we needed and then some was on hand. I have to tell you the shower was our favorite feature so spacious and tropical... I can't say enough good things about our gracious host or the accommodations.we will definitely return to island abodes on future visits. Do plan on renting a car or taking taxis to get arround the walk from town is quite a workout not far but VERY steep, hence the wonderful veiws.... Thank you for everything Brittany and Robert you were fantastic host...

Response

Hi again Nancy! And thanks so much for your great review regarding your recent stay with us. Robert and I were happy to help and always do our very best to ensure our guests feel comfortable and relaxed on St. John. Anything we can do to make your stay better, we will do it! It sounds as though you thoroughly enjoyed our spacious and clean one-bedroom unit, complete with a breathtaking view! Thanks for sharing the suggestion of renting a car with future guests. St. John has so many steep hills so it really is a great idea and we appreciate you mentioning it. We hope to welcome you back very soon. Thanks again for the review and the recommendation!

Great place to stay on St. John!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Island Abodes provided a great last minute accommodation for our stay in St. John. We had spent the previous four nights at a campground, so the comfortable bed, A/C and hot shower were just the relief we needed! Not to mention, we had a great view of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas and we were minutes from town. Thanks, Brittany, for being so hopeful and quick to respond to our request!

Response

A great place to stay when you vacation in paradise
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Our stay at Sunset Serenade could not have been better. The location is a short drive from Cruz Bay with a great view of the town and St. Thomas in the distance. Day or night, it was a wonderful view (including the resident Iguana who perched in the tree about 30 feet from the balcony). The apartment was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Plenty of towels and a terrific shower (almost like being out of doors), air-conditioning (which we never used), a nice kitchen (which we did use) and bag chairs and a cooler for the beach. There are a couple of groceries and a gas station on the way so supplies were easily had. I would highly recommend renting a car. The walk into town would not be pleasant. Brittany was very helpful. She offered to meet us when we arrived and gladly answered all of our many questions. I will say that the drive up from town is not for the timid but after a couple of trips it was no big deal and it made us appreciate the apartment even more. I will definitely recommend Sunset Serenade to our friends, as long it isn't for the same week we want to be there.

Trip to St. John
Posted on: 4/17/2017

It was a memorable trip. Our first time to St John. Our host - Brittany was great, She picked us up in town and guided us to the one bedroom apartment before our 4 pm checkin time.We would have never found it on our own!! The view from the balcony and our bedroom was amazing. The apt was very clean and well equipped. The kitchen was well stocked, even had a Keurig coffee machine. I loved the shower with its loose pebble flooring. She did not miss a thing. We had beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, bug spray, umbrella and even some snack bars to take with us on our outings. We made good use of the Roku ( with subscription), watched a few movies at night. Brittany was always a phone call away if we needed any assistance. I would highly recommend this apt to anyone visiting St John.

Best views of Cruz Bay!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

This stay was wonderful! I've never before "looked forward" to getting back to the place we stay during our vacations but this was the exception. The views and the amazing deck were fantastic! The deck is very private and much larger than expected, perfect place for our breakfast every morning. My hubby even napped on the daybed while I got ready for the evening. The bed was very comfortable and I really liked the shower-feels as if your outside but still very private. Very clean and tradewinds were perfect during our stay. We never used the A/C. Called Brittany when we got our Jeep and she gave us directions and met us there. The place is landscaped very nicely and even grilled steaks one evening. If we revisit St John in the future I would plan to stay at this place again. Thanks Brittany for making out visit to St. John so memorable!

Many thanks for your awesome review Cindy! We enjoyed having you both and I loved nothing more than to hear that you're looking forward to your next stay with us! Thank you for your details regarding the One-Bedroom Suite and all of things you enjoyed about it. It was absolutely no problem for me to meet you at the car rental and to make sure your entire stay was just perfect! We want to ensure you come back to our little island, and we want to do our best to make sure you want to stay at Island Abodes. Thanks again for posting this Cindy, we appreciate it so much and can't wait to welcome you back!

We had a great experience!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

We stayed in Brittany and Robert's one bedroom apartment, and it was perfect for the two of us! The view was beautiful, the apartment was clean, the bed was very comfy, and the customer service was absolutely outstanding. Before we left, Brittany responded to my email questions within the hour, and offered several options for us to choose from to make it easiest for us to find the apartment. She even offered to meet us at the ferry to caravan over. We elected to find it on our own as we wanted to grab some groceries and weren't sure when we'd be ready. We found it with little trouble using Robert and Brittany 's directions - in the dark no less! We walked in to a basket full of snacks, a couple bottles of the local beer, and a kitchen with all the gadgets and appliances you'd need to cook whatever you want. SO welcoming! There were also plenty of linens, a cooler, chairs (these are the fold up nylon lawn chairs in a bag rather than beach chairs), maps and island info, and even a selection of books in the front closet! We rented a jeep and were glad we did as the roads are steeply hilled. For evenings out, I'd recommend parking in Mongoose Junction and strolling Wherever you want to go. Be patient, parking is a little tough to find during the evening. I loved St John and I'd definitely recommend Brittany and Robert's home for accommodation!

Thank you for providing details about the amenities provided and for the helpful parking hints. Future guests will surely appreciate your feedback and we can't thank you enough! We hope to welcome you back in the future... we'd love to provide you with another great stay that exceeds your expectations!

Best Caribbean vacation I've ever had!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

I loved staying here and the owners, Robert and Brittany, are amazing. When we landed on St. John, we picked up our rented jeep and followed Brittany's directions right to the Suite. Once we arrived, Robert was waiting there to show us around, see if we needed anything, and answered all our questions about things to do and where to go. Our first view when we walked in was so beautiful. You walk in and all you see is this wide open view of Cruz Bay and across the water to St. Thomas. The deck had a table, a couple chairs, and a daybed that made enjoying the view and air simple and comfortable. We ate breakfast out there most days and watched the sunset most nights. We also got a nice view most days of our "neighbors", a tree of iguanas off to the side of the house. It was fun to see them sunning and they never left their tree so they weren't a nuisance. There was plenty of room for my mom and I with the queen bed in the bedroom and a sleeper sofa. The bedroom had an AC unit in it that was nice to turn on low to go with the fan on the warmer nights. St. John is beautiful and it is more relaxed and less crowded than what I was expecting after being on St. Thomas. We went to town to eat once a day and just walked around because it was easy to get to most everything. A majority of the beaches are easy to get to since they are all along the same road. We went snorkeling several days and got to see everything from colorful interesting fish in the reefs, to stingrays and sea turtles. Brittany and Robert were always available to answer any questions or help out in any way to make sure we fully enjoyed our vacation. I've never been a big fan of Carribean vacations because of all the stress and hastle, but I am already planning on returning the next time I get a chance!

Thank you for posting a review Leigh! It's so awesome that both you and your mom took the time to leave such great feedback for us and for future guests. We really appreciate you both. It sounds as though you guys thoroughly enjoyed the island and your stay with us, and nothing makes us happier! We do our very best to ensure our guests are comfortable, relaxed, and have everything they need, so it was awesome to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much, despite not normally being a "Caribbean vacation" kind of girl. We hope we've changed your mind permanently and that you'll continue to come back to St. John. It's our favorite place in the world and we love to share that with our guests. Thanks again Leigh, we hope to welcome you and your Mom back in the near future. Maybe next time you can try a different Island Abodes property, or even bring the whole family :) Take care!

Wonderful Experience
Posted on: 4/17/2017

This experience was so wonderful that I can't wait to go back! Brittany recommended that we rent a jeep for the week. Excellent advice! Made it to islandabodes without any trouble following Brittany's directions. Robert met us and showed us around and gave us great information about the beaches, restaurants, and shopping. The one-bedroom apartment was very clean, nice, and equipped with anything we might need for our weeks stay (fully-equipped kitchen, linens, bug spray, beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, snacks, etc.). The screened patio door and windows allowed for a continuous wonderful breeze. Loved the open feel of the shower with the tile and pebbles. It was great to be able to wash the sand off us and our things outside our door before going in. Now for the best part - the amazing view of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas! The clear blue waters, sail boats resting in the bay, and boats/ferries coming and going, it never got old. It was an easy ride to town for restuarants and shopping. It was also an easy ride to all the north shore beaches. Our snorkeling experience was at Hawksnest for coral and stingrays and at Maho Bay for sea turtles and stingrays. This was our first snorkeling experience ever and it was amazing. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. I can't thank Brittany and Robert enough for a wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend islandabodes and will certainly stay there again for any future trips to St. John.

Hi again Mary! Thank you for sharing your experience at Island Abodes and for taking the time to post it on VRBO! Robert and I were pleased to have you and your daughter as our guests, you guys were so great. And it sounds as though you both had a wonderful time on St. John and really made the most of your vacation. I'm glad our advice to rent a Jeep paid off.. we just think that's the best (and most affordable) way to get the most out of the island on a daily basis! Just think, you may have missed some of those turtles and stingrays without your own set of wheels :) Thank you again for your review, your recommendation, your kind words. We look forward to your return and will do our very best to ensure you have another great stay!

I can't say enough good things about this rental!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

I could have stayed on the large patio 90% of the stay and have been happy, but the rest of the unit was just as special. The bed was very comfortable, the shower felt like an experience, and the thought out details throughout the unit made this a place I will return to again if I revisit St John. It's an excellent value for your money and I highly recommend staying in this unit and enjoying a sunset from the patio!

Response

Thank you Kristen! Again, we so enjoyed having you and were so happy to hear how pleased you were with your stay at Island Abodes! We really hope to see you again in the future. Take care! :)

I could move in! Awesome place to stay!
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Brittany & Robert's one bedroom apartment was wonderful! It is well situated, feels very private, nestled in such lush & tropical gardens, spotlessly clean and has sweet little touches that made it feel extra special, like fresh flowers in the bathroom. There is so much good to say. The shower is awesome, that patio (& daybed) are sublime. (And so large that I had plenty of room to practice my yoga out there each morning!) Being a little higher up above Cruz Bay, the breezes are great! I know St. John well & can say, without a doubt, that this apartment is excellent value, & Robert and Brittany's customer service is bar none! I cannot wait to return! Thanks you guys! See you soon :-)

Response

Thanks so much Karen! Robert and I can't thank you enough for your great review, kind words, and five stars! We loved reading that you enjoyed your stay with us at Island Abodes and that our beautiful One Bedroom Suite exceeded your expectations! Thank you for appreciating the little touches, cleanliness, and surrounding garden views. We look forward to having you back and you know you're welcome anytime. Thanks again!

5-Star Experience
Posted on: 4/17/2017

Great 1 bedroom unit . Nothing to complain about and I don't see how it could've been made any better. Very clean, comfortable bed, great deck, and front area for hanging out. Nice gardens. Easy access. Everything was in great condition. Cooler, chairs, towels, beach mat...made everything so easy. Coffee machine and Keurig. Really cool shower...almost like an outdoor shower. Never had that icky feeling that one can sometimes have when staying in an Airbnb or mediocre hotel/motel. Owners are highly receptive and friendly and it's clear that they take great care of their properties and want their guests to have the most enjoyable experience possible. I wouldn't hesitate renting from Island Abodes again.

Response

Thanks so much Douglas! We loved reading that you had a great stay, and that you enjoyed the One Bedroom Suite. We appreciate your feedback regarding the condition of the property and the service and amenities provided to you.
