Thank you, Marcia! Even though the Caribbean is a long way from California, we do think it's worth the trip. Thank you for staying with us, and I am so glad you enjoyed Softwinds and St. John so much.
Stayed here and will return in 2015. By far the best value in St. John. We had the pool all to ourselves. Feeding the birds, iguana and goats was something we looked forward to everyday!!!

thank you ladies for being such thoughtful guest. When I realized it was spring break time I was a bit apprehensive about renting for that time period. You ladies have proven what we knew, that you should always ignore stereo types. You kept the suite in immaculate condition ,and were ideal guest. Thanks again for a taste of that homemade lasagna . You could always return and start your own restaurant

It was our pleasure to host such a wonderful family. Christian Villa is our family home in paradise. Having a family that enjoyed it as a family and treated the Villa with such respect in reference to cleanliness and care was amazing. We even had a moment to talk about the wonderful time of my parents' 25th anniversary at the Villa for they were celebrating their 25th anniversary as well. We would love to have them back again and again.
