There where a few minor problems with the home that were immediately addressed once reported. The home was very nice and well stocked. The house was close enough to the ocean to hear the waves. We thought the timely response to any problem or question from Catered To was fantastic.
“An amazing secluded paradise”
Ebb-tide was a great time. We had 4 couples and the house and experience was amazing. The open air kitchen and large dining tables really made cooking and meals enjoyable. All rooms have their own air-conditioners which made it cool in the evenings. Private bathrooms were nice as well. Easy stroll to Chocolate Hole for shells, beach walks, and sight seeing. We all highly recommend ebb-tide and especially Catered To Vacation Rentals!!
“Just Do It!”
First, This was our 20th anniversary getaway. I had some concerns because current Ebb Tide reviews were unavailable and I didn't want to show up to a overgrown house with an empty pool. Even though we were on a budget, we had a couple of requirements for our vacation; a pool, a private location, a King Master bedroom connected to living area, and close to town. With no privacy and $300-$400+ a night at the Westin, we felt the Ebb Tide was a much better deal. Catered To was excellent to deal with before and during our stay. Even though we were over an hour late because of us airways, Viki met us at the dock, drove us to Courtesy Car Rental, pointed out some places to eat, and escorted us to the villa. She gave us a tour of the property and went over the necessary info. Our main responsiblilty was to take our own trash off which is no problem because there are several trash dumpsters on the way to town. I thought there was a mid-week cleaning but it was not an issue. We did use the onsite laundry machines to wash the provided towels during our stay. The first evening, Diane called to check on us and answer any questions. They were available to answer questions throughout the week. The owner's supplied some snacks and drinks in the refrig. Nice touch and unexpected! The home was exceptional and was as shown in the pictures on Catered To's website. While food prices on the island are 50%+ higher than in the us, we prepared breakfast and lunch in a well appointed kitchen. We lost power (whole island) for about an hour and couldn't flush the toilets. Pros: Clean, private pool, 5 mins from town, Pool floats, coolers, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, internet, cable, last house on road (no traffic) Cons: Tree drops leaves in the pool daily, Uninvited pool guests!(see pics), Occassional odor from Chocolate Hole Pond. Could see neighbors from outdoor shower. Beach pathway need some repair. Wish list: AC in living room. Screens over all sliding doors.
“Never a disappointment”
This was the second time we stayed at Ebb Tide from Catered To. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to coming back next year!
“Great location and property”
Our family loved our stay at ebb tide! We enjoyed the views from the deck, pool, and living room. There were five of us - 2 couples and a sixteen year old - and the villa allowed alone time when we wanted it as well as family time together. I wasn't sure how the exterior entrances to 3 of the bedrooms would work, or the fact that there is not a common 1/2 bath, but neither was an issue. A big plus for us was the easy access to the water - we saw puffer fish, stingray, turtle, and barracuda whiles snorkeling. Tip: beach chairs and snorkel equipment are located in a storage area adjacent to the front door (we didn't discover this until our last day). Chocolate hole is a great location - close to restaurants and grocery, but away from the crowds of Cruz Bay and the Westin. We appreciated the service level of catered to throughout the process from choosing a villa, helping plan excursions and provisioning, to making sure the villa was 100% satisfactory once we had arrived. Overall it was a great trip and we are already starting to plan our return in 2014!
Enjoyed the view and the service was great! Will be back. Sofa was very uncomfortable, but we were gone or outside the entire time, so wasn't that big of a deal to us. Great kitchen, well equipped! We cooked every night, so it made it very easy for us. Company was very helpful!
“Ebb Tide Rocks! - As do Catered To!”
10 of us stayed comfortably in this fantastic home at the lower section of Chocolate Hole. 6 adults, 4 kids under age of 13. About a mile from Cruz Bay, and conveniently located close to the Starfish market. Being near the shore was excellent for the kids to explore and find shells, hermit crabs, etc... while the parents relaxed. Catered To was a great company to rent the home from - they lived up to every expectation and promise made. Side note - use insect/mosquito repellent in all of St John, you don't realize the little critters are biting you until you are bit up! We would love to go back again, again and again!
Our family of 8 stayed 4 nights at EbbTide. The location is private but convenient if we needed to run out for groceries or happy hours! All rooms were spacious. We "cooked in" 2 nights because we enjoyed sitting by the pool/patio so much. Very nice RIO beach chairs, 2 coolers, snorkel equipment and beach towels were provided. I would rate it 4 stars, but one bedroom's a/C did not work, a part had to be ordered, but property management brought in a portable unit. I only wished that all a/C's had been checked before we arrived. That said, we would stay here again!
“Beautiful Island, Beautiful House”
This was our first time using Catered To service and we have been coming to St. John for 20 years. I know now what I have been missing the past 20 years. Catered to was a wonderful service. We had a really nice welcome basket to greet us at our rental home after a very long day of travel. It was very much appreciated. Catered To also took great care of us. Since we had some travel delays with the airline and it caused us to miss our car rental, Brett from Catered to took us to the grocery store when we arrived and also picked us up early the next day to get our rental car. next time, I will be sure to have Catered To arrange our rental car. The house was wonderful and we really enjoyed the beauty of the place and the surroundings. Ebb Tide has a really nice beach to explore which was perfect for our 10 year old. Would def stay here again. Thanks for the wonderful experience
“This was our dream vacation”
This was our sixth trip to STJ and we have always utilized the services of Catered To. As usual they were second to none and a highly recommend them for your vacation planning. Truly a great service. Ebb Tide was more beautiful than we could imagine and we will be staying there again next year! There was plenty of space and privacy and the layout was very nice. The Weber grill was great to cook our meals on and we enjoyed the patio space. The view was beautiful but not as nice as up on the hills but I wouldn't let that be detractor from renting Ebb Tide.
