“Slice of paradise with nonstop views”
Reviewed January 2, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I had seen the gorgeous online photos, so I thought I knew what to expect. But Bay Rum Breeze exceeded my expectations and just blew me (and my family) away. The location and the views are awe-inspiring, and the villa is the perfect place to enjoy them from. It is fresh and solid and clean, and very well-designed, from the covered veranda to the beach equipment closet. We loved the feeling of spaciousness, and everyone, from teenage daughters to type-A husband, found their own nook to relax in. My husband spent hours lazing on the veranda with his kindle, my daughters shuttled between the pool and the hot tub, and listened to their ipods on the outdoor speakers. The kitchen is well-stocked -- I never reached for a utensil that wasn't there, and there were plenty of plates and glasses and silverware. We all got a kick from of the outdoor showers, complete with postcard views and big fluffy bath towels.

When we first arrived on the ferry dock, we were met by an excellent greeter, who walked us over to pick up our rental car, and then led the way out to the villa in his car. It was great to have his help (especially because there was a glitch with the jeep rental), and then to have his tour of the villa, showing us things we might need to know. I wouldn't have expected that extra service, but I was really glad to have it.

All in all, I can't imagine a better rental place, and -- first day home -- I've already started scheming how to get back to Bay Rum Breeze soon.

“An amazing villa on an amazing Island”
Reviewed December 11, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

Just got back from another great stay at Bay Rum Breeze. This was our 2nd time staying there and it was just fantastic. I love the location; quiet and peaceful, yet not far to Coral Bay and even to Cruz Bay where we usually went for dinner. Close to excellent beaches (we went to Maho, Trunk, and Haulover where we snorkelled). The villa has the most amazing view of the British Virgin Islands... To wake up to this is just heaven on earth. The villa still looks brand new (it is only 1 year old) and it really has the feel of luxury with beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bath and the most amazing tile on the floor and in the showers. It is well maintained! And I love the furnishings- everything is so nicely decorated and coordinated. We used both the pool and hot tub (what a treat to have a big hot tub to use after a day of hiking on the Island!). The villa is definitely spacious and there are so many different rooms to hang out in. I love this place and can't wait to go back!!

“Bay Rum Breeze was INCREDIBLE!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Bay Rum Breeze villa made our first trip to St. John very special! Our experience from start to finish was exceptional. VIVA VILLAS manages the property and were excellent to deal with... we would recommend their services with confidence. The villa was absolutely beautiful, without being over the top. We found it very comfortable, and even though the villa is brand new, it is already loaded with all the amenities you can imagine....every kitchen appliance/gadget you could ever need, spices to cook with, a basket of sunscreen/bug spray, laundry detergent, shampoo and soaps, beach chairs, coolers, etc. There is even WIFI and an ipod dock through which you can play your music on the outdoor speaker system!

Although it is a large home and there were only two of us, we did not feel it was too big. The layout is exceptional, with an easy walk out to the outdoor living area with beautiful patio furniture, a built-in grill, a large, beautiful pool and a hot tub. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast outside every morning, and used the grill several nights. We loved the location of this villa, as it offered easy access to the beautiful north shore beaches, and it was close to Coral Bay, which we loved. BRB is located less than 1/2 mile from the smoothie shack, which was a favorite stop at the end of the day.

The best part of this villa is the stunning view that you can see from every room and bedroom in the house (as well as from the 3 outdoor showers, which were awesome!)... the pictures don't even do it justice!!! You can see for miles! There are views of the east end of St. John, as well as views of some of the BVI's. We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon.... there are no words to describe how beautiful it was, lighting up Coral Bay and the ocean beyond.

We enjoyed hiking the Reef Bay Trail, and continued on to Little Lameshur Bay, which was a beautiful beach with excellent snorkeling. Our favorite hike was Ram's Head, as the views were gorgeous. The best snorkeling we experienced was at Waterlemon. Here we saw several spotted eagle rays, a giant bed of star fish, turtles, a nurse shark, and a couple large barracuda. The reef at Waterlemon is very interesting and colorful, with tons to see... just be aware of the current which can be strong on the back side of the cay. We visited the Donkey Diner and Skinnylegs, and enjoyed the casual atmosphere at both. We also had excellent sandwiches at Deli Grotto in Mongoose Junction. St. John is a beautiful island... we can't wait to return! We would give Bay Rum Breeze our top recommendation!

“Beautiful New Villa with View to Match”
Reviewed February 25, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

The photos on line looked great, but the villa is even more beautiful in real life. Our jaws were dropping when we walked in. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could want. The countertop was this beautiful, swirly natural stone. The wood beamed ceiling and beautiful tile and furnishings (both inside and outside) are great. The pool was great and the hot tub was state of the art with a really easy to close top. The villa layout is perfect. It's really new, and you can tell everything was well thought out when it was designed. All the bedrooms are the same size and have their own bathrooms with a door leading to an outdoor shower. We really liked the outdoor showers because they have beautiful tile, glass block, and feel more like indoor than outdoor - except you have fresh air and a view! The location is great for the north shore beaches and Coral Bay. It's not far from Cruz Bay either. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.
