“Tremendous view, pool, hot tub, accommodations, and with all needs covered.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The view from this villa is breath-taking. Every bedroom has a view. We had a hard time selecting bedrooms because each is great. All amenities in villa were anticipated and available. We would stay here again, anytime.

“Perfection!”

Because we do loads of internet research and analysis, it is not often that something exceeds our expectations. I am thrilled to say Island Sun blew them away! The pictures are good but they do not do this stunning home justice. This property literally took my breath away. It is gorgeous, laid out perfectly for function and privacy, has all the conveniences of home but better, is simple to keep neat, has a fully equiped kitchen. When I go away I always look forward to coming home to my bed and pillow... Not the case! The beds were so comfortable (kicking myself for not checking to see the name of the matress) and the pillows were just right.
The outside living space was just as impressive as the inside. The view has got to be among the best on the island, with blue water, islands and beaches visible from the huge patio and hot tub. The stargazing at night was fantastic!!!
A spacious pool, hot tub, gorgeous grounds and a short walk to a suger mill ruin will keep you entertained if you need a break from the beaches.
Believe it or not this home is kid friendly as well. There are not many nic-nacs set around and the things that are are durable. The location was good for us but might be slightly daunting to folks who arent really comfortable driving in the islands. You must be willing to navigate the challenging roads leading to this home but that said it is only a few miles from town and driving isnt simple anywhere on the island. Needless to say I would stay here again in a heart-beat, very thankful to the owners for listing this fabulous property to rent.

“Simply The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Stayed at Island Sun Thankgiving Week. What a magnificent place! The first thing you notice is the incredible view from about 600 ft above the north shore of St. John, with the BVIS in the distance from the back of the house - and we hadn't even walked in through the front yet! It's that wide-open, spacious, and comfortable, with all the amenities including a fully-stocked (utensils and gadgets, not food) kitchen. Did I mention the views? The constant breeze is welcoming, and it's a couple of degrees cooler than down below in Cruz Bay. Located mid-way between Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, meaning we were never more than a 20 minute drive from about anywhere on the island. I cannot imagine a better place to stay on the entire island. One more thing - the views are spectacular!!!
