“A beautiful well maintained villa that is even nicer than its on”
We visited for a week in January with 10 family members spanning four generations - 2 to 84 years of age. We were surprised to find the villa even more beautiful than the pictures posted on our broker's website. The living area on the main floor has been recently redecorated and is very clean and attractive. The kitchen is beautiful and well appointed. Each of the bedrooms is comfortable and clean and because they are spread among several levels, we never felt crowded, even with our large group. The downstairs apartment was spacious and perfect for our daughter, son-in-law, and young grand daughter. The owners were also very thoughtful to provide beach toys, chairs, large fluffy towels, and even some food and drink in the refrigerator to get us started. We highly recommend Villa Panache!
We spent a week at Villa Panache and it exceeded our expectations. The view is incredible and one never tires of it because the sea and sky change moment by moment. The home could use a little TLC. The fabric on the living room furniture has seen better days and the outdoor furniture is not long for this world, but I know rentals have a hard life. The layout of the house could not be more perfect.Everyone had their private space but when we were all together, there was plenty of room. Outdoor speakers would have been nice, but in the great room, the sound system is great. It really is a fabulous house! We had used Catered To once before and would never use any other company. They go above and beyond to make sure everything is just right for their clients. Our only problem with St. John is the attitude of the islanders. So very many of them seem to despise visitors and make sure you know they do. A week without pesky tourists might help with this attitude problem. For this reason alone, we will probably take our family to Bermuda the next time we plan a large family vacation. We were there in June and the attitude was much better. I am sure there are many other islands where the locals appreciate what visitors bring to their economy.
Overall this home was nice. The Kitchen, living room and basement apartment have all been updated and the air conditioning works well. The other bedrooms and bathrooms are pretty dated and could stand to be updated. The house was very clean and the management company "Catered To" was fantastic. They were very helpful in the booking process and the check in process. Jason at Catered To was extremely competent and we will definitely use him again. We stay on the island regularly and are use to driving around. If you are not comfortable driving on the island this home might be a little further out for you. The house could also use outdoor speakers near the pool. Overall, a nice home that we had fun in.
We planned and saved for 3 years to take and treat 11 of our very close friends with us to a very special place on Earth and to celebrate milestone birthdays. The folks at Catered To were amazing to work with, so kudos to them! Villa Panache is beautiful, welcoming and quite comfortable. There were 13 of us gathered for a week in St. John. Some of the guests had never been to the island or ever seen the Caribbean. Being able to overlook the pool area onto that incredible body of water was a dream. We never went out for supper one night because the gourmet kitchen was all we needed, plus it was fun to cook for one another. Two people prepared a breakfast and supper one night during the week and then they were "off" for the remainder of the vacation. It worked out great! After wonderful nights of listening to great music, having multiple cocktails and eating like kings and queens, we slept like babies in our comfortable rooms. Each morning we would rise and quietly make our way to the coffee pot, softly wishing each other a "good morning" and then step out onto the patio where the pool is located. We'd listen to the morning birds and watch as the sun rose in the east over the mountain top. After breakfast, we'd all gather for a day of fun at one of the incredible beaches and then return to our oasis at the beautiful pool where we created our very own "Tikibar". Beginning with music, appetizers and cocktails followed by a wonderful meal. Two friends hired Chef Ted to come by one night which was fantastic and it happened to be on the full moon night, which made it even more special! This place is magical. Every one of us would come back in a second. What a great place where accommodations were excellent, laughter was abound, weather was perfect and memories were created for a lifetime. *Kitchen/Great Room is amazing- Pool is wonderful. Bedrooms are comfortable- Bathrooms are spacious- Beach chairs were great to have-Cleaning crew mid-week was a treat*
Villa Panache was wonderful, the perfect mix of luxury and comfort! We felt like we were on our own private island! Everything was great! The views from the pool/ patio and master bedroom was amazing. The views from the other bedrooms were not as good as the pictures on line. That is the only disappointing thing I found.
“A wonderful family experience.”
The service was excellent. Everyone was very helpful. We loved the home, plenty of room and space for the family and kids. The view was outstanding. The house had everything you would want or need to have a wonderful vacation. We loved the pool and open floor plan. The children loved the TV room and pull out beds. The kitchen had everything needed to serve and cook for a crowd. Least of all was the comfort of the bed in the master bedroom which left alot to be desired. Also, the furniture in the family needs new coverings.
“Everything was very nice-great home,island,beaches,etc.”
Again everything was great. We have been coming to St. Johns for over 30 years and will continue to.We have stayed at Villa Panache before and enjoyed just as much this time.We really didn't require any services the home was well stocked with all necessary items that made our stay very enjoyable.
This was a fantastic house for a family group including two teenagers who found the pool and their own rooms to be "the best". The house came with more then we thought like a cabinet full of sun block and a complimentary starter package in the refrigerator. The staff was great even when we had a problem with one of the room air-conditioners. I would highly recommend this villa.
“Villa Panache - April 2010”
We have stayed at Villa Panache 5 or 6 times. While we have tried other villas in the island, we always come back. The house is beautifully but comfortably decorated, you really feel at home. The set up really is ideal for a large group and for everyone to be in the same area with lots of space and sharing multiple activities at once. Our group loves to enjoy a great dinner after a day at the beach and cooking is a delight in this kitchen which overlooks the bay and allows you to stay close to the social action (pool, terrace, etc.) while cooking. We are hoping for two weeks next year!
“Being Catered to in St. John”
We have been travelling to St. John for over 30 years now, and it still remains our favorite vacation spot. For the past ten years or so we have been renting properties managed by "Catered to." Our favorite house is Villa Panache. The house is very comfortable for young and old and the view superb. "Catered to" personnel have seen to our every need promptly but we've rarely needed anything from them! All of the houses we've rented from them have always been ready and waiting for us weary travelers. We will return to St. John and Villa Panache as soon as we can!
