“Beautiful inside and out”
Reviewed June 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My Husband & I were meeting my Family and from Georgia for a weeks vacation 6 of us in all, none of us had been to St. John before and my sister in-law had picked the Idyllic for us to stay in. We were excited for a year and let me tell you we were not disappointed. We had some iguanas come visit at the pool and other animals. The pool could have been kept cleaner nobody ever came to clean it, we just skimmed the top. We frequent the Starfish & St. John Markets mostly for grocery's the prices were not that bad. We also ate out at The Dog House Pub, Joe's RumHut, The Tap Room, Skinny Legs on Coral Bay, Oh and I can not forget out day trip to BVI our Captain Adam and his wife Erin, We chartered their boat ( they really don't advertise saw them on the beach at Cruz Bay) their Boat is called Isle Okopa, what a Fantastic time we had just the eight of us went to Willy T's ate lunch jumped off the ship what a rush. Then went to Soggy Dollar what a great trip.

“Excellent stay for our Wedding/Honeymoon”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a wonderful time we had. This was our second time visiting the island.

After a lot of deliberation we went with Vacation Vistas and rented this property from April 30th - May 9th. Upon arrival, we were met at the ferry and brought to the home. Jackie came to great us at the home - complete with wine & fresh fruit.

We got married on 5/5 and traveled with 3 other friends who were attending the wedding. We received a very nice card and champagne from the folks at Vacation Vistas - it was such a nice surprise!

We really enjoyed the view & evenings on the deck overlooking Great Cruz Bay. We loved watching the Westin Ferry come and go.

The home was clean, the bed & linens were comfortable. The pool was refreshing and used often. Pretty much anything you would need is provided. Plenty of beach towels and bath towels - a washer / dryer is there too.

We would absolutely return & plan to make it an anniversary trip as well! I will recommend Vacation Vistas and would use them again as well.

“Idyllic and Vacation Vistas Get a Perfect Score”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We enjoyed 8 wonderful nights at Idyllic in Febuary 2016. The villa was amazing! It was perfect for our group of 6 adults. The house had everything we needed and then some. The porch overlooking the harbor was the perfect setting for am coffee and breakfast as well as pm cocktails and dinner. We enjoyed several of St John's beautiful beaches during the day and came back to enjoy the pool in the afternoon. Jackie of Vacation Vistas was excellent. She saw to our EVERY need. Prior to visiting St John we did a very thorough study to search for the perfect house. We definately found it! Can't wait to return.

“Idyllic Week in St. John!”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We recently returned from a wonderful week staying at Idyllic Villa. After many years visiting St. John, this was our first time renting a house now that our children are older, married and with a girlfriend. Idyllic was perfect for us. Our children had the two rooms upstairs with their own bathrooms, and we had the suite downstairs so we all had privacy but together spaces. The kitchen was well appointed with more dishes and supplies than we knew what to do with, and we enjoyed a combination of eating in and going out to dinner. The view was lovely, the covered porch spacious for all meals, and the week could not have gone better. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

“Idyllic stay on Great Cruz Bay”

We loved our stay at Idyllic Villa with our adult children! We are a family of 5 and found the villa quite comfy for us all. We stayed in the master bedroom downstairs, while our son and fiancé stayed in the BR with attached bath, and our daughter stayed in the other bedroom. The house was not too large with unnecessary space. We spent most of our time outside under the large deck are on the comfy outdoor furniture. Coffee and breakfast never tasted so good. We watched the harbor activity change with the time, and watched the occasional showers come down. The pool area was terrific for an afternoon swim after the beaches, loved the cabana house for music and a small refrigerator. Comfy beach chairs and 2 size coolers were perfect. We cooked one night at home and chose to eat out the others. Not a super "fancy" fancy house, but perfect for our needs with plenty of amenities. We LOVED being in Great Cruz Bay area. Residential, a bit easier to walk and run in the morning on the roads less traveled there. Close to town. We will hopefully come back! We love St. John.... Thank you Lisa Durgin and the owners.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Idyllic was amazing. Quiet, secluded, beautiful view and close to town. Not hard to get to - no steep hills! The beds were comfortable, the pool great, the kitchen immaculate. Lisa from Vacation Vistas helped us and was always there if we needed her. Hope to return to this villa and beautiful St. John.

“Idyllic was Ideal!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

people found this review helpful

My parents, my husband and I and my two young children (4&6) stayed at Idyllic this past November. After many trips to St. John, and many prior villa rentals, Idyllic really impressed us. The layout was perfect- two rooms off the main living area for my husband and I with the kids, and then another bedroom with couch, small fridge and bathroom for my parents downstairs. We are a beach-loving family, but found ourselves at the Villa a few days- completely content. We had one issue with an air conditioner, and Lisa from Vacation Vistas had a brand new AC installed within hours of our phone call. We will definitely be visiting Idyllic again- we hated to leave!!
