I booked this Villa as part of a birthday surprise for my husband and he is still talking about the trip and asking when we can return to this Villa. We loved the separate rooms as it provided that private space when you needed it and the big living area when we all came together. Of course, the iguanas made us feel right at home!
My family of 11 came there to St. John. It was extremely nice to have the community living room and kitchen and then have our separate quarters come bed time. The pool of course all the kids loved. We didn't need to bring anything with us but bathing suits and pj's cause we were either at the beach or in the pool until bedtime. I would suggest Vida De Mar to anyone that has a large group coming and the service was wonderful. They met us at the dock and took us to get the car and then to the house and made sure we understood all the functions of the house. Cool outside showers!!! Also great snorkeling right there at the house - if you didn't want to you would not even have to leave the house...
“Awesome vacation, turning 60 not so bad when you get to enjoy th”
The house was wonderful, we were 5 couples (all family) and each had our privacy. The pool and deck made for great evenings of dining and sing alongs and Of course the views along with all of natures creatures gave us plenty to look at everyday. Jason was great with a follow up call to make sure we were settled in after we got lost our first trip back to the house. After we got our directions straight the location was easy into town and the market. We had a problem with a water pump and it was fixed almost as soon as it happened. Brian who takes care of the maintance and repairs on the house was great. He gave me his card so if any problems occured we could call him direct. I can't think of one thing I didn't like about the house, but my favorite was the outdoor shower in our room. We spent a week on a boat before coming to the house so the shower was a big hit with us. If we get back to St John, Vida De Mar will be our first choice.
“Vida De Mar”
What an amazing property!! Me and my (now) husband stayed at Vida for our wedding. We had family come in and spend the week with us. Vida was the perfect house! The pool and deck were enjoyed by all. Catered To was amazing, answering any calls or concerns we had---someone locked themselves out of their safe and we had no problem getting help. The house is laid out with plenty of community and private space. The only draw back was the non functioning hot tub, we were never able to get in as it was scalding! But the pool was just right! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
“Excellent in every way”
It was the easiest way to have a vacation for 10 people. We all had our privacy, but plenty of time together in the wonderful living/dining/kitchen area. Ending each night in the hot tub was a favorite. The private beach was an added bonus; did some swimming and snorkeling. One of our more adventurous men slept in the hammock a few nights. Said he wanted to get the sound of the waves into his head. The location was excellent; close to town, but completely private. The staff of Catered to were very helpful in planning this vacation and on time in meeting us and getting us settled; then gave us the keys and left us alone.
“Good place to call home for a week!”
Pros: Location (just a short drive from Cruz Bay on all paved roads), tons of privacy, peaceful and quiet, beautiful landscaping and views, villa layout for large groups, the full a/C worked great, washer/dryer conveniently located in main great room, comfortable beds and pillows, large pool & hot tub, plenty of pool toys and rafts, excellent indoor/outdoor sound system with iPod connectivity, plenty of dishes and glasses for a large group, nice new coffee maker, plenty of beach towel (though some need replacement), Catered To immediately brought us out new flashlights when ours did not work (needed to go to beach cottage at night), & 2 beautiful outdoor stone showers. Cons: Some broken furniture (1 dining room chair, 1 patio lounger, & 1 patio chair); no working TV in bedroom w/twin beds (Catered To said they would replace it, but didn't during our stay); kitchen needs a good cleaning (sticky cabinets, dishwasher, etc.); pots and pans need to be replaced asap; bedrooms could use more storage (not entirely filled with linens); website is misleading in that it leaves you with the impression that toiletries like shampoo & soap were included, but in reality you have just a days worth or two & never replenished with the mid-week linen change; & coolers were filthy (smelled like rotten meat with an orange goo in the bottom). Overall, the villa needs a good cleaning. As guests, we shouldn't be at the mercy of the guests who stayed before us (condition of grill, coolers, spilled liquids down cabinet fronts, etc.). However, the villa is in an incredible location, has a great layout for groups, and the full house a/C was fantastic.
“Fantastic Family Villa”
Located on Dever's Bay with your own hammock on the beach. The snorkeling is awesome. The villa is set up perfect for families to have plenty of family time together and then go off to separate bedrooms for privacy. We opted to have some groceries delivered before our arrival. Great if you are low on time. The grocery store is not huge but, it will save on eating out. I strongly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen. The location is just a short drive to Cruz Bay. I have not one bad thing to say about Vida De Mar. It's a Villa our family will be talking about for years to come. Hopefully we will be able to come back again!
We had a wonderful stay at Vida de Mar. With 9 adults it is often difficult to find a place to accommodate us. This place did that and more. Great location. Easy taxi into town. Pool and private beach so if you don't want to go and explore the beautiful bounties the island has to offer...it's cool to stay around the house.
“The best vacation in Paradise!”
We were a party of 10, with 4 adult children, along with their 2 spouses and 2 significant others. The accommodations were perfect as each couple had their own little wing so to speak. The kitchen was so well equipped for preparing meals at home. The location was the best not only because we had our own beach along with the picture perfect views, sunsets and all, not to mention the close proximity to Cruz Bay and beaches. We rented our cars at STT airport and stopped at Cost U Less on our way to the Red Hook Ferry and were able to stock the bar and the kitchen with very affordable items before going to St. John. All in all it was a vacation all of us will never forget. Thank you Tiffany and Scot for sharing your beautiful home in paradise!
From even before our arrival on St. John to the end of our stay, we could not have asked for better service from Catered To. They were able and willing to answer all questions and were incredibly wonderful to deal with even with a last minute change in travel plans.Vida De Mar is everything one could ask for in a vacation home.Great location, beautiful grounds, unbelieveable views, proximity to town, sooothing sound of the surf ,and perfect accomodations for a group of 10. Hope to be back next year!
