Great Views, Great Owner, Great Property!
This was a great stay on St John. I have stayed on St John about two dozen times previously. This time, I was here on a househunting trip, and so I stayed at Bliss in September 2019, right as Tropical Storm Karen passed by St John. Dan the owner communicated frequently and in detail before my stay. The property was described very accurately on the VRBO website. Everything was clean; the property management company (LCM) handled the pre-stay coordination emails (which gave lots of useful information, but more importantly, especially for folks that have not been to St John before, they explained the St John ferry and rental car process nicely!). Dabney from LC met me at the ferry dock in Cruz bay, and led me to Bliss villa, which is located in Estate Bethany, maybe 5 minutes from downtown, before you get to the Westin, and pretty high up (Of course, that's what gives you the great views!). The steep access roads were no steeper than other locations within St John, although I'm glad I had rented a 4WD Jeep! All the access roads were paved, so I was never worried about the jeep making it up the hill at all. There were three parking spots, right by the cottage; some of these might be shared by other nearby renters, but I had them all to myself when I was here. Even the view from the parking spots was spectacular!
The cottage is adequately sized for a 1BR unit, and the photos depict very accurately what the cottage looks like, inside and out. But oh my that outdoor deck/balcony is the reason you want to stay at this place - huge, with GREAT, more than 180 deg views, including sunset views of St Thomas to the west, then southwards to Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole, and eastwards to a tiny bit of Rendezvous Bay. Evenings/mornings I had food out on the balcony (several tables, chairs, and a nice grill) and watched the scenery - awesome!
The kitchen was stocked with new appliances, clean silverware, utensils, etc... everything you'd need. TV and electricity worked fine...even during the tropical storm passage - nice!
The bedroom is a loft-style room located in a gabled portion of the second floor, and accessed by a spiral staircase. The view from the bedroom window is pretty expansive as well.
I also want to point out that the owner Dan was very reachable and accommodating, especially when port closures due to the passing storm threatened to preclude my departure. Overall, this was a great stay - highly recommended!
Booking was simple, upon the deposit being taken, we had an email detailing what was to come next. They sent suggestions on the island for Jeep rentals, excursions, and restaurants. It made planning extremely easy with the extensive list they provided. We kept in close contact during our flight into STT and ferry over to St John to find Dabney waiting for us to take us to our rental company (Jeep). She then escorted us to the property where she gave us the grand tour and made sure all of our needs were taken care of before leaving us. The property is stunning, absolutely gorgeous views, easy to find, comfortable bed, stocked kitchen for cooking at the property if you choose, beach towels for use, cold A/C, washer/dryer, beach chairs, coolers, and snorkel gear. We will book this property again in the future. Thank you for making our stay perfect in every way!
1st Trip to St. John
Breathtaking hilltop views with stunning sunsets! This peaceful, quiet duplex was spotless and well equipped with everything needed for an island vacay to include snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels and an outside shower! We had an issue with little hot water in the bathroom shower but Dabney was very responsive. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything you can imagine to prep a meal if you don’t want to eat out every night but when you venture out, we highly recommend Longboard... food was delicious!
The villa is beautiful and the views are breathtaking......
Very clean and exactly as described.
I truly cant think of a better place to take a vacation, or a better villa to stay at.
I will definitely be back.....
The property management was there to assist you in anyway the could, and were a pleasure to talk to.
If you are planning a trip to St. John I highly recommend staying at Bliss. The villa is exactly that........
