“A slice of heaven on earth”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

One of the best weeks of vacation we have ever had. The views from the home are amazing and must be experienced to be appreciated. There are sweeping views of the bay and mountains and the pool / jacuzzi sits on top of it all. The suites were first class the entire way - recently renovated and finished impeccably. Everything from the mattresses to the bedding to the bathrobes were A+, Ritz-Carlton-esq. We were just a short drive to the center of town and the most beatific beaches in the world. We can not wait until out next visit to this truly magical home.

We are so glad you were able to come down to enjoy Mystic Ridge and it captured such a wonderful ambiance for you! The new owner has been had a great vision for Mystic Ridge and along with the Island Getaways team's dedication to the renovations and improvements, the villa has really come such a long way! We can't wait to host you again, and forgive the delay in our response to your review-we didn't know we could respond on to review on Flipkey! :)

“Lovely villa, fantastic views, great location”

We recently returned from a stay at this villa. This was our third St John trip, but our first stay in the Bordeaux Mtn area. I would definitely recommend this villa and/or location. The views were far better than pictured, and even in early June, no A/C was needed due to the mountain breezes (although A/C is available in bedrooms). It is very convenient to Maho Bay and other north shore beaches for snorkeling (where we saw many turtles), and to Coral Bay restaurants and bars, and quick shopping trips. Major shopping trips would still need to go over to Cruz Bay, but the ride is only 20 minutes or so. It also is probably one of the most easily accessible villas in Bordeaux, with a short, level driveway. Absolutely no need for 4 wheel drive on this trip!

The villa was very clean, and the kitchen was extremely well provisioned with high end cookware, numerous plates, platters, glasses, bowls, utensils, and gadgets. It also had some aluminum foil, paper products, saran wrap, ziplocs, and S&P already there, which was much appreciated. The rental agency included a welcome basket with snacks and beverages .

Bedrooms were all very comfortable with good mattresses, and nice bed linens. Great views from the master bedroom and 2nd floor queen bedroom on their private seating areas (porch). It is an east facing view, so be prepared to have the sun wake you... The showers have garden window(s), and nice quality towels.

The villa supplied numerous beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc.

The living room has 3 large couches and other seating as well, so it will definitely fit 8 people very easily. The decking is expansive and has many deck chairs, and you have good views throughout, with great views at the far end of the deck. There were several papaya trees with ripe fruit, but we didn't try any. The landscaping is professional and very nicely done. The view is just fabulous, although we had some haze for the first few days (which cleared eventually). The hot tub is probably only suited to 4 persons, or you could squeeze in 6 very close friends... The pool was cool and refreshing, but seemed a little smaller than pictured, though definitely adequate. It is easy to prepare meals and still converse with people on the deck. Nice stereo system with iPod adapter, and the WiFi was good for our phones and laptop. Please note that your laptop will probably not fit in the safe in the Master bedroom...

We only used 3 out of the 4 bedrooms, and while we didn't actually see the 4th, I don't know that I would recommend it. It is only accessible by stairs, and is too low to have a view, and has no A/C (and not sure it would get a breeze).

Overall, I was very happy with the rental agent, the villa, the views, and would definitely come back here again. I was very surprised to see that this villa only has a handful of reviews, and think it is amongst the nicest we've stayed at in St John. Recommended!

Hi bennette4796,
I love what you said - no 4 wheel drive needed this trip! haha! So true! Thank you so much for your very detailed review of Mystic Ridge, that is so very helpful to our future guests to hear from you. Kathy, the owner of Island Getaways, goes to great care to make sure her villas are very well stocked so that your vacation is easy and you can focus on having a blast and making great memories. I am so happy to read that all of those things (the ziplock/towels/tupperware etc) made a difference for you! You will be happy to also know that this spring we got a new safe that is larger! Please do forgive the delay in our response - we were just made aware that we can respond to our reviews! We hope to have you back soon but until then, please do follow us on FB and Insta! Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
