This was our first trip to St. John USVI. I did not know the area or anything about accommodations. Dan proved to be a wonderful resource. From booking, arrival and throughout the stay he was only a text or an email away. The Villa Morena is on the "quiet end"on the island near coral Bay. We stayed in the lower two bedroom, efficiency - type apartment. It was perfect for us. We had total privacy, a gorgeous view of coral Bay- all nestled in a tropical mountainside paradise. The house is gorgeous. The neighborhood is beautiful. There are so many things we enjoyed about staying there. There were beach chairs, a small cooler and snorkel equipment for our use. All were appreciated and used. The welcome package was also a wonderful treat. I won't say more because I don't want to ruin anyone else's surprise! Dan recommended a boating charter and jeep rental that we used and both were perfect. One morning we woke up to donkeys on the driveway. We also fed the local birds from our beautiful patio. All week long we were entertained by the bananaquitwho who came and ate sugar out of a bowl that we put on the patio! Saint John is without a doubt the most beautiful place in the world I have ever visited. Don't hesitate to stay at this property. You will not be disappointed.

The villa is amazing and private. Dan is always in contact and extremely helpful. Dan does everything to ensure you are attended to from being picked up at ferry upon arrival to excellent suggestions on what you may need or want to do. The villa is not to be missed. It's close to everything from beaches to cruz bay. Dan makes sure from jeep rental to dive cruises you have whatever you need or want. The view from the deck is amazing and breath taking. The snorkel, chairs and towels are great for the beach. Definitely returning to this great place.

We took advantage of the whole house rental and this spacious villa was amazing for our family. The views are brilliant by day, shimmering by night. Whether sharing the villa with family or friends, the en-suite bedrooms with bathrooms offer privacy and a relaxing way to end the day, whether you’ve spent it reclining on your porch; exploring coral reefs off the spectacular white-sand beaches of St. John; hiking trails with historic sugar mills or perhaps you’ve been sailing or enjoying water sports courtesy of planning from the owners Dan and Lorena. In addition to organizing outings, you can invite a chef for home-cooked meals, or they will stock your kitchen according to your preferences. If your preference is hands-on when it comes to food preparations, you’ll be cooking in a fully equipped chef’s kitchen. The open kitchen and dining area looking out onto the Caribbean, blend into the living room. Enjoy the large patio for morning coffee or evening drinks. We had an amazing time at Villa Morena and have already booked our return trip next year!

While planning our trip I had no idea where to begin with where to stay and especially what part of the island. The owners were so much help and decided that maybe somewhere between Cruz Bay and coral might be just perfect. Let me just say we were thrilled with our decision. Villa Morena was a perfect escape to call home for a week. The views are simply breath taking. The rooms had everything we needed and the place was spotless upon arrival. After all our research we were so pleased and confident we made the right decision. We have already booked for next year! Thank you, Dan and Lorena!!!

Villa Morena was the perfect choice for us. The reviews and photos lived up to expectations. We really enjoyed the Coral Bay side of the island as it's a little more quiet and relaxed. The property is very clean and well maintained and furnished. It has everything you need for the week, including beach chairs and towels as well as kitchen equipment and grill. The owners (Dan and Lorena) are great hosts, very helpful and just nice people. You do need a Jeep to reach the Villa. We enjoyed snorkeling at Salt Pond and Little Lameshur. We dined at Aqua Bistro, Pickles Deli, Miss Lucy's and Skinny Legs (all were good). Feeding the crabs turned out to be fascinating. Our kids for some reason found the porch a great place to sleep as it was like sleeping outside and camping for them, so we actually had an empty bedroom the entire stay! We would highly recommend this property and hope to return some day.
