“Nirvana ”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2015

My wife and I stayed at The String Of Pearls for our wedding / honeymoon in 2008. It was the best week of my life. I am planning our 10 year anniversary and we are going back. The owner at the time, (and I hope still) BJ, was amazing. She also was the witness at our wedding. She bought my wife flowers to wear in her hair. We were not really ready for everything (emotionally we were but we were unprepared) and BJ was there to cross the T's for us. She also drove us to and from the ceremony at Cinnamon Bay. Oh and the villa itself is pure bliss. Great view, hot tub, stocked fridge, and as I said it was the greatest week of my life. If you don't like The String Of Pearls, then you are just plain crazy. Thank you BJ for everything and I look forward to seeing you again next June!! We will be contacting you very soon!!

“Perfect romantic single couple villa”

This is the perfect villa on St. John for a couple. BJ's great photos don't do it justice. Very clean, up to date, and all the amenities a couple could want or need. The views of Great Cruz Bay are spectacular and the unit is convenient to everything. It is VERY private and secluded. The landscaping is fantastic and there is an abundance of beach chairs. Even a hammock. I just can't say enough about BJ and String of Pearls!!!

“Exceeded our Expectations”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our stay at the String of Pearls was more than we expected. When we arrived the owner had left us fruits and bottled water. The music was on and we immediately felt comfortable. We utilized everything including the kayak on the property and the gas grill. It has a full kitchen too! The sunsets are beautiful from this location and it is extremely private. To have a private beach was a once in a lifetime experience for us although we hope to visit String of Pearls again in 2017. We would recommend the String of Pearls to any one of our friends or family member. Thank you so much for the beautiful and safe accommodations. Hope to see you in 2017!

We enjoyed one week of romantic and private accomodations. The staff was attentive to our needs. String of Pearls has its own private beach and a two person kayak to explore the exquisite Great Cruz Bay. We would recommend this beautiful villa to all who seeks peace and tranquility.

I was a little apprehensive about writing this review for fear that more people would locate this rental. That said, any couple renting this property will be very happy!!!
Perfect romantic hideaway. Tucked 50 yards off the water with a private beach. attended a wedding at the Westin which was a 3 minute walk down the beach. This property has everything packed into an incredibly efficient space. B
BJ, Andretti (my contact), and staff were great throughout the whole process. The photos really don't do this property justice. Good times guaranteed at The String of Pearls!!

Thanks again To BJ!!!
