This was our 3rd visit to St. John and will not be our last. Altagracia was wonderful. The house was so comfortable. Everything was perfect, the pool, the bedrooms, the decks, everything!!! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one needs. The bedrooms are spacious. The views from the deck were breathtaking. We loved the fact that the home was close to Cruz Bay. Catered To Management is a very professional group of people, especially Jason. We needed something and he took care of it immediately. Our greeter Michelle was a very special person. Not only did she recommend us to take a day sail on Kekoa, but she followed through with a call to tell us the schedules and who to contact. We all have very special memories from that sail! All in all, we will definitely return to St. John and would love to stay at altagracia! Thanks to all of you for a very special vacation.
“Amazing view, great set up for multiple families”
Altagracia villa was the perfect place for us to stay during our trip to St. John for our wedding. The view, first of all, is amazing, with a long deck to view from. Each bedroom is completely separate from the rest of the house, which was very nice for privacy reasons. There are also two levels; the top level containing the living room and kitchen, with the bottom level being bedrooms only. This was a nice set up, as the "early-risers" did not disturb the rest of the house when making coffee etc. It really was a great set up. The pool is very nice, with a great outdoor kitchen area for entertaining. The road to the villa is quite steep (and you feel like you are driving off of a cliff when you start to head down), so if you are not a comfortable driver, you may be a little surprised by the driving at first. We got used to it within a day. Other than that, our welcome was very nice (our flights were delayed multiple times, and the company was very flexible with us). The only thing that wasn't mentioned during our introduction to the house was that the stove and oven run on propane. We discovered this when attempting to cook brunch for a large crowd; we ended up having to grill bacon and eggs! Once we called the management company, though, they replaced the propane within the hour. Very responsive crew.
“Total relaxation in paradise.( Altagracia)”
There were six of us on this trip and altagracia was wonderful. We had good views, nice breezes, and the villa was very comfortable. Was close to town and beaches. We all enjoyed the pool. There was space for all to be together, but areas for privacy as well. We spent most of the time on the wonderful decks. We could see for miles!! The owners did a wonderful job on the remodel. We had a chance to see it during the work in October 2011 and the end result. If you want a outstanding view, great pool, and a superb villa for the price, then altagracia is the one. The staff at Catered To, especially Jason were very helpful with anything we needed. Would not hesitate to come back to altagracia in a heartbeat. Sharon & Don
“Better than ever”
We stayed at altagracia for the second time in late February. Last year, the old deck wood seemed pretty rough and worn and now they have replaced it all with really nice smooth wood, which we appreciated. They are also building a big outdoor kitchen. I don't think we'd ever use the outdoor kitchen so I hope the rates won't be going up. Another big improvement was that they cut a lot of the foliage that was blocking the ocean views from the pool area. It is still private, but now you can see the water from the pool deck and the pool gets a lot more sun (they are working on a shaded pergola, which is definitely needed). We found we used the pool much more because of these improvements. The master bedroom/bath is really nice with curtains to block the afternoon sun (something a lot of houses don't have for some reason). We did find the bedroom aC unit was making a strange whining sound that kept us awake so we were unable to use it at night. It did not do this last year so I think it just needs maintenance. We didn't ask for maintenance while we were there. Catered To has been a pleasure to deal with. This house also has a very convenient location.
We had a fabulous time. We would highly recommend staying at altagracia it was beautiful.
“Location, location, location!”
This was our third year coming to St. John, and by far this was my favorite rental. We have stayed in more luxurious villas, but this one was ideal for a family with children. It is comfortable and clean (not 100% perfect, but clean), and feels like a real, lived-in home. Plenty of everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms -- small sample sizes of soap and shampoo are provided, but not enough for a long stay so you'll need to buy or bring some. What was most fantastic is the location. You can literally walk to town in less than 15 minutes, but you're still on a quiet street and not on top of your neighbors. Last year we stayed in Fish Bay, which was beautiful, but it was a very long drive on insanely curvy and steep roads. The drive from altagracia to town is 5 minutes, and to north shore beaches is 10-20 minutes. Oh, and I should mention that this villa has large living spaces -- two living rooms and a big open kitchen -- so there is truly plenty of room for everyone. Even the pool is big by St. John standards. If you don't need the ultimate fancy villa but want a comfortable and roomy place for you and your kids, this is the one!
“It was a great vacation,just beautiful!”
The only thing I can say bad about it and its not really bad bring alot of off alot of mosquitos.
“not happy with altagracia”
the view from the house was awesome..there wasn't any breeze throughout the house...very hot..ceiling fans did not do much for air movement. the two bedrooms downstairs had an awful musty smell. the decking around the pool would get so hot you could not even walk on it without sandals...have stayed in many catered to homes..this was the most disappointing...
Great view, big pool, nice and close to town. Very well stocked Villa. On the down side, it was dirty when we checked it. All the tables and counter tops had to be wiped down before we could use them, and there was a good amount of leaf litter on the deck (like autumn in the north east). Other than that, very happy.
“Altagracia is Paradise on Earth”
This was my sixth time on St. John and my 3rd time staying at Altagracia. This home is beautifully maintained and I'm convinced there isn't a better view on the island. All my companions but one were first time visitors to St. John and they all have told me it was one of the best vacations they ever had and already want to return to Altagracia. Thank you to the owners for sharing their lovely home and to Catered To for making our arrival and stay so comfortable. I will be back and cannot wait!!!
