“Very Much Enjoyed The Villa”
We didn't know what to expect arriving with two two-year olds and my wife, but we very much enjoyed the Villa. It is two bedrooms connected in the middle by the living room/dining area/kitchen. It was more than enough room for the four of us. Not sure if it could fit much more without having to use the middle area. Villa was nicely outfitted and had lots of extras such as deck chairs and a barbecue as well as beach towels and even sun screen. We went to the beach in the morning and then used the small pool in the afternoon -- which was perfect for young kids. Deck has a great view of grand cruz bay and you can spend all day under the shaded part. The bedrooms are air conditioned but not the main part -- we didn't mind because we just kept the screen doors open. It is just beyond the Westin -- so we drove into town and to the beaches with a rental car which you will definitely need. The villa is on a hill -- very steep so you basically have to drive everywhere which is the one down side. We also bought our food on St. Thomas at the Cost-U-Less (Costco equivalent) which saved us a lot of money. It was a great vacation and we would go back.
“Very beautiful view and villa! Very spacious but some Maintainan”
We loved our stay at the blue tang and catered too was excellent! We have a couple of concerns however !. There is a wasps nest under a lawn chair outside. 2. The light fixture in the bathroom fell one evening and fortunately we were not there otherwise we could have been injured! We would stay there again if the Maintanance was up to Parr. Catered too was very caring and helpful! We replaced the guest book because theirs was filled up and kind of dirty! Very remote and peaceful and the driveway was a challenge but fun!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Blue Tang. The wasps have been removed and the light fixture has been fixed. We appreciate your feedback and we hope to welcome you back in the future.
Patricia was our greeter when we arrived on St. John. She was friendly and helpful. She assisted us in retrieving our rental car and then brought us directly to the villa. Blue Tang has a breathtaking view. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck in the mornings (with our coffee)and evenings (reading). The villa had everything we could have possibly needed for cooking and going to the beach (including beach chairs, coolers & towels!). A home away from home! The villa is in a neighborhood but situated so that it felt very private. We would definitely stay at Blue Tang again or recommend it to a friend.
“Great trip to St. John”
We enjoyed our visit to St. John and Catered to Vacation Homes was wonderful in their service. The snacks and drinks left for us were much appreciated. The location of the home was fine and the view was incredible. The kitchen was very well equipped and the lay-out of the house was perfect for two couples. We also enjoyed having chairs to take to the beach along with coolers for drinks and snacks. We would have enjoyed having the entire house air-conditioned since the mosquitoes were awful and since the house is not air-tight, they were everywhere. The second bed room had an awful smell from the hot water and not enough hot water for one shower. We would also suggest a solid door into the second bath for privacy.
We loved Blue Tang! The location was fantastic; close to town, but private. The house was comfortable and had plenty of space for our family. Coffee on the covered deck with the iguanas was one of the things we enjoyed the most. Catered To was very helpful and responsive.
“A Belated Honeymoon”
My husband and I loved staying at the Blue Tang. It was in a great location with awesome views. The villa had everything we could have wanted including beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, etc. The property management company responded quickly to any issues or questions that we had. We would definitely stay there again.
“Blue Tang: A relaxing, calming and airy atmosphere.”
Blue Tang is the most pleasant of the 5 villas we have stayed in on St. John. While not the most luxurious, it is very comfortable. There are two negative features: a difficult driveway if car does not have 4 wheel drive and lack of dishwasher. These are compensated for by the layout, location, view and otherwise nice kitchen area. While it is open in design, there is a sense of privacy, both in the sleeping areas and also to any other villas in the vicinity.
We really enjoyed the Blue Tang. Catered To was also very professional and courteous. I would not, however, recommend the continued referral of guests to St. John Car Rental. First, we found them rude. Second, after the jeep broke down and we had to ask that it be replaced, they attempted to charge us for the day it was out of service. Third, we accidently left our rain coats in the jeep when they picked it up, and when we called to ask that they be returned, they had somehow disappeared. They obviously felt that they have a monopoly on St. John and were horrible to deal with. But Catered To was excellent and so was Blue Tang.
“Great relaxing trip for all”
Our family really needed a quiet vacation that still offered fun activities nearby if we chose to get out and explore. Our stay at the exceptional Blue Tang was just the right place at the right time. We got out every day for a little while to visit the many splendors of St. John, but it was great to come home to a relaxing and comfortable home with everything we needed to feel "at home" away from home.
“It was Paradise!”
We rented Blue Tang with another couple. It was Paradise! The accommodations were lovely-we lived on the 60 foot covered deck. The view was gorgeous. Every detail was taken care of. "Catered to" vacations met us at the ferry, took us to the car rental, and introduced us to everything at the house. The food setup that we ordered ahead of time was perfect. The weather was perfect all week and we explored the whole island-it's beaches, shops and restaurants. It was the most relaxing vacation we'd all had in years. I can't wait to return.
