An amazing vacation! The house was beautiful with everything a person could need. Close to Cruz bay. The food in the refrigerator to welcome us was amazing!

“This vacation was one of the best we've ever experienced!”

Staying at Ballena Blue was everything we wanted and more. The home was comfortable, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed right down to beach chairs and towels! Having a gas grill was outstanding when cooking after a beautiful beach day. The location was close to Cruz Bay and many restaurants and beaches. I highly recommend staying at Ballena Blue. I know we will be back for sure!

“Quiet location with views to St Croix”
Reviewed December 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A beautifully decorated home, well-stocked kitchen, and nice little touches like a collection of books to read. My husband and I spent a week in this lovely villa. As regular visitors to St John, we enjoy staying at new villas for a different view of the island and beyond and want to be close to Cruz Bay. Ballena Blue is a great option for both. We would happily return.

Ballena blue was fabulous! The house was spotless and pleasantly stocked with essentials when we arrived, Beers, soda and snacks after a long day of travel.
The views were stunning! Spacious and plenty of room for our family of five. Reasonably priced as well.
Service was top notch. We had a problem with the master bed and electricity our first night but both were promtly fixed after a quick call to Dwayne. He was so responsive!
We will be back. I have no hesitations recommending this house. It exceeded our expectations!

“Beautiful views”

This rental property was perfect! Stunning views of the ocean off of back deck. The rental was very clean and tastefully decorated. Landscaping outside was beautiful and seemed as if you were in your own tropical garden. The rental is at the end of a paved driveway with a code locked gate. The house felt very private and secluded although there were other houses nearby, you could not see or hear any other people. Rental company was very helpful and courteous and made the details of getting to St John and the rental house as smooth as possible. Would highly recommend this rental and would love to stay here again!

“Wonderful house with a fabulous view”
Reviewed March 26, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My wife and I and another couple stayed at Ballena Blue the week of Jan. 16 and had a wonderful time there. The house is located on a hill with a sweeping view of the bay, which was exactly what we were looking for in our stay in St. John. It is furnished very nicely, and the two bedrooms on the main floor plus the third very large bedroom on the lower level would make for a comfortable stay for a family or even for three couples. The location works very well,as it is a short drive to Cruz Bay. It is also easy to get to great beaches and to Coral Bay. We certainly recommend this villa very highly to anyone looking for a great vacation home in St. John. Roger S
