“Last beautiful trip to St.John”
I can't say enough about Esprit or the Catered To staff, they were there when we needed them and not when we didn't. Because of my wife's illness we probably spent more time at the villa than most guests. The views from all the decks is unmatched by any place we have ever stayed. We spent hours just relaxing by the pool or lounging on the main deck. My wife, Donna, and I met on St. John in 1978 and have had a few trips back since then but this, our final trip was by far the most memorable. Donna passed away on December 6th and our stay at Esprit will always have a special place in my heart. She was so thrilled to be able to make one more trip and I am very grateful to the people at Catered To for making that possible.
“Another day in paradise”
Catered to treated us very well,meeting us at the ferry dock and having the villa up and ready for our arrival...Villa Espirt was a great rental...I'VE been coming to ST.John for over 40 years and I never tire of its beauty...The villa is atop Bordeaux MTN. With a view to die for and constant cool breezes...Although not new it, provides great value for the money...I have stayed there twice and each time I was very pleased and recommend it and catered to highly
“A slice of Paradise”
We booked a last minute stay at Esprit and although we had a couple of small instances where Catered To was not quite on the ball they absolutly picked it up when we needed their help in storing our luggage and giving a lift to the ferry. Esprit is a beautiful well equipped Villa complete with clean fleece jackets to be worn on those breezy evenings when all you want to do is sit out on the deck or by the pool and star gaze. My only complaint is that the gas grill is all the way down by the pool at the complete opposite side of the house from the kitchen which doesn't make for grilling out very convenient but other than that, the Villa owners are clearly thoughtful and obviously demand only the best which is refelcted in thier choice of Catered To as thier Villa rental agent. I would absolutly recommend Catered To and Esprit to friends. (rating ease of check in average because we were not met at the ferry even though we had called from Red Hook to say we were on the way, had to make another phone call after waiting about 30 min in Cruz Bay.Our escort was very nice but she never did apologize or acknowlege the inconvenience, just not the best way to be greeted after a long day of traveling). We got over it.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Esprit. We apologize for the delay at the dock in Cruz Bay. We have spoken to the greeter that met you and she was unfortunately delayed at a car rental agency with a previous guest arrival. She has been reminded to call for assistance if she is running at all late. We are sorry about that. We are pleased that you enjoyed the house and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Catered To Vacation Homes Management
“Breathtaking views...for the adventurer at heart”
We stayed at Esprit with extended family and enjoyed our time there very much. The "meet and greet" was much appreciated. When we got off of the car barge, an employee from "Catered To" met us and drove to the villa while we followed. Good Thing! We would have had a hard time finding the place in the dark without her. We had a sturdy SUV vehicle and we needed it to get to the villa on the rugged terrain. The villa was clean, beautiful and felt like home to us. The views spectacular and we looked forward to watching the sunrise over the mountain each day. We went in early December which meant the "Christmas Winds" were blowing all the time giving us relief after a hot day of hiking or snorkeling. We could sleep comfortably with the windows open and the a/c off most of the time. The villa had all of the necessities and was worth the price. I would definitely recommend this villa for the adventure and experience.
The site of the house is terrific. Beautiful, quiet, isolated, relaxing. The owners had great materials at the house. Catered To is the best! We had an a/c issue and they solved it that day. Very responsive. Only complaints are: the kitchen is dated and needs new pots/pans/ knives etc. The pool was dirty the entire time. The snorkle gear is ripped/broken.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Esprit. We apologize that you felt that any items at the villa may have been dated. We will be conducting a full inventory July 2012 and we will replace any items that may seem tired. We are also sorry that the pool was at all dirty. The location of Esprit and the strong breezes on Bordeaux do have a tendency to put leaves in the pool. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back to Esprit and St. John in the near future.
“Paradise 0NLY gets better”
I have been coming to St.John for over 40 years and never tire of the experince.I have traveled all over the world but always come back for some quality down time. My stay at Espirit was great and the view never ceases to give me great pleasure.Over the years I have stayed in many Villas on the island, some extremely lavish, some very modest and I can say Espirit was great,...value, location,just enough luxury etc.Its location at mid-island gives you the best of both worlds...I plan on staying there again
“St. John is always Terrific”
We love St. John and have been coming for many years and have rented many houses. This house was beautifully designed and decorated. It would probably appeal most to folks who have been to St. John previously and are ready to explore some less-visited areas of the island. House had some fairly minor maintenance issues, and hope they can be correctly quickly.
House was delighful; view spectacular, nice privacy and convenience to the four corners of the island. Only negative was Paris car rental.
“Everything was great.”
Beautiful villa. Beautiful view. Our three children were delighted. Hopefully we'll come back again.
“We loved Espirit”
This January, my husband, daughter and I had the pleasure of staying on the mountain in Espirit. We loved it. We have travelled to St John on occasions. We have stayed in several different places, Espirit was our favorite. The house was very comfortable, the pool was refreshing and the isolated location made us feel like we had the island to ourselves.
