“Our third stay at Terrahawk”
We originally chose Terrahawk because we wanted a nice private villa where we could walk to a north shore beach (rather than drive) because we had small children. It fit the bill, and we've returned every year since! The villa is nestled into the National Park forest, which you are sharing with geckos, iguanas, chickens and bananaquits. It has two bedrooms, with a central family room/kitchen area. All three rooms look out over a large deck with ocean views. But that's not why you came to St John! A short walk down the driveway and across the street, and you'll find yourself on a splendid coral sand beach draped in palm trees and sea grapes. Life can't get much better. Walk down in the morning or before sunset, and you'll have the entire beach to yourself. If you somehow manage to get bored with Gibney Beach, a dozen other beaches are a short drive away, including Hawksnest and Trunk Bay. Budget for a rental car, (the villa management company will arrange it for you) and about $300 to stock the refrigerator for the week. But other than that, put your wallet away and enjoy a week away from it all. I know this must sound like the place's marketing department, but that's just how much I love coming here!
“Everything you need at Terra Hawk - and with an excellent view!”
If you are a fan of Gibney Beach (my favorite beach) then the ideal villa location is Terra Hawk. The driveway is not for the faint of heart - a definite workout -but totally worth it! The view from the deck is amazing. Terra Hawk was fully stocked for those choosing to dine in. In theory, the showers with the open-air window are a great idea. However, I am not a fan of sharing my shower time with mosquitos and lizards! :) We are looking forward to visiting Terra Hawk again...
It was perfect. Cater-To was the best and we are already planning the next stay.
“We had a wonderfull time!!!”
Location couldn´t be better, a wonderful beach steps away from the house. Service was present at all times, Sharon was extremely kind with us, always ready to help. House had a beautiful view from the terrace and all the necessary appliances. Also Wifi was very useful. No blackout curtains is the only criticism we have.
“We loved Terrahawk and Catered To”
We chose Terrahawk because of the convenient 2 minute walk down the driveway to a beautiful north shore beach. (We didn't want to have to load the kids into the Jeep every day just to get to the beach.) The walk and beach were everything we were hoping for! To be clear, there are other villas on hillside, but they are further up the hill, off of long access roads. Even though they can see the ocean, they still have to use a car to get there. Not so at Terrahawk. The villa is very private, nestled right into the natural landscape of the National Park. It can't be seen from the road, and most people we met didn't even realize it was there. Another great feature was the full kitchen with every kitchen utensil and gadget you could ever need. It felt more like we were staying at a friend's place. We cooked dinner in most nights, often using the gas grill on the gigantic deck overlooking Hawksnest Bay. There's another villa, called Callalloo, sharing the driveway with Terrahawk. Although I've never been inside, it also looked very nice, and we thought about convincing some friends or family to come next time and rent the place across the way. This was our 3rd rental on St John and the first through "Catered To". I'd say their service is top notch. The house was spotless, and every detail was attended to.
“You will want to come back.”
Home in great location. Tremendous view. Well equipped. Catered To easy to work with and responsive. Being within walking distance of an outstanding beach biggest treat.
“Loved it, except for the spiders!”
TerraHawk was as clost to perfect as you can get. The location was perfect, the house was wonderful. Proximity to the beach was perfect. Loved the outside showers. Loved the view. Loved St. John. Loved snuba. Loved snorkeling. Ten minutes to Trunk Bay, the most beautiful beach, can't beat that! Can't wait to come back! The only shadow on this otherwise perfect vacation were the 3 huge spiders in the house (2 one night and another the next). We couldn't figure out how something that big got in. I understand we were in the tropics and there are big bugs there, but them being in the house really gave me the creeps. It was hard to sleep that night, I kept imaging it on the bed or on me. Gives me the chills just thinking about it. I'm going to look at my vacation photos now and dream I was still there.
“Villa was much smaller and darker than photos depicted.”
Once on the premises, we felt this villa was too small to comfortably share with our son and his wife for a week. Due to a stipulation in the rental contract, we had to incur the cost of renting a larger villa in addition to paying in full for this one, so the owners of each villa could be compensated. After moving to a larger villa, the four of us had a wonderful vacation experience. However, my husband and I are still making credit card payments on the unexpected cost of having to rent two villas instead of one. I will be more careful next time when selecting accommodations based on Internet photos.
“We had a wonderful time & would recommend it for everyone!”
The Catered To staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Their customer service was second to none. Terrahawk is in a perfect location for access to the beaches. It is a 10 minutes drive to town which was perfect for us because we wanted the peace and quiet and sounds of the ocean.
“Cottage by the sea”
I've lost count as to how many times we've rented this home since the mid '90s. It is a comfortable home with beautiful views and a very private location. The privacy and views are what we come time and time again for. We appreciate that it is fully air conditioned as well. When we first started coming here there was no a/C, but we were younger then. If it is quiet beauty that you seek this is the place for you. Good amenities as for the Cable/Internet but no pool. Always a way to forget about the world when you are here and the Catered to staff is always there if you need anything - they will just take care of it.
