“PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT”
While writing this review, I find myself missing Bliss more with each passing letter. This was truly a wonderful experience on St. JOHN, VI. Cynthia was great from the start. Prompt responses and answers to all of our concerns and questions. From planning the trip, to island day beach excursions, nothing was too much to ask. Bliss is a piece of heaven. There are many books, movies and VIEWS to keep everyone happy. I couldn't watch TV, but the selections were ample. Kitchen was well equipped. All was clean and very well updated. Anyone could use this place as a home. The air conditioner, when needed, was plenty to keep the whole place cool, upstairs and down. The mattresses were comfy. It was easy to sleep. Also, there was a grill (worked perfect) and a patio that I could just enjoy forever...view of Cruz Bay. If you do encounter an issue while you stay, rest assured that they will work diligently and quickly to resolve and make things perfect. I would recommend a car. The hill is too much for most. Well worth the climb though for the untouchable views. Just as a side note...we moved to Gallows point for the last half of the stay and it wasn't nearly as comfortable. We should have saved our money and stayed longer at Bliss.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great, detailed review. I'm sure it will help many others on Flipkey/TripAdvisor as they search for the perfect place for them to stay on St. John. I'm glad that you had a wonderful, comfortable stay and hope to welcome you back soon for a longer stay next time at your "island home away from home." Best wishes, Cynthia
“Great time at Bliss”
Bliss is not large but perfect for 3 to 4 people. We enjoyed the view of Cruz Bay and the proximity to town. Cynthia has all the necessities in Bliss and it was nice to use the cooler and beach chairs. We rented a jeep from amalie at the airport in St Thomas, I would recommend renting a vehicle, as the walk to town and back is possible, but requires a lot of effort. The beaches around the island are beautiful and it is great to be able to explore. I would recommend going to Chateau Bordeaux for lunch, it has a great view of Coral Bay and wonderful food. Thanks Cynthia, you have a great villa and would love to stay again.
“Great views, beautiful home”
We stayed at Bliss for five days in april 2013. Everything was perfect from the time we stepped off the ferry and were greeted by Cimarron Management Company. They escorted us to the condo and showed us around, making sure we knew where everything was and had everything we needed. We hadn't rented a car in advance and helped us find one when we decided we wanted one. Even before we left home, the owner, Cynthia, sent us numerous communications to make sure we were prepared and even called us when we got there to make sure everything was okay. The condo is lovely, well-appointed, with everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful island of St. John. It was nice to come home to the cool of air conditioning after a day at the beach. The coolers and beach chairs were essential for our trips to the numerous beautiful, unspoiled beaches. We enjoyed the pool on a couple of afternoons as well. We really appreciated the fully appointed kitchen, especially being able to make our own breakfasts and eat on the deck overlooking the bay. The blender came in very handy for making frozen drinks in the evening. The condo is close to the town of Cruz Bay, but the walk back up the hill is, well, all uphill. We hadn't planned to rent a jeep because we were worried about driving on the "wrong" side of the road on mountainous roads. But we quickly realized that we would miss out on some of the more interesting experiences if we had to rely on local taxis so we bit the bullet and did it. It was challenging but fun and we were glad we were able to explore every corner of the island on our own schedule. All in all a wonderful way to spend our vacation.
We had a great stay at Bliss. We loved the view and had everything we needed at the condo. We made great use of the beach chairs, boogie board, noodle and cooler for our long days at the beach. We only used it a couple times but it was nice to also have the option of the pool. Our two best days were sailing with Simplicity Charters and renting a Hobie at Cinnamon Beach. We will definitely be back to St. John.
Imagine stepping out of the snow in your hometown to board a plane in the am and off just a few hours later into the sun and warmth of this tropical paradise!!! It's still hard to believe but how wonderfully refreshing it is!! Just a short ride up the hill to Bliss and the beautiful scene below will definitely make you smile with luggage still in hand! What great accommodations you will experience here...lovely views, quiet and private, beautifully re-modeled and fully equipped kitchen, bath and living area with a/C if so desired. A shared pool just steps below that is usually yours alone with the same spectacular view. A real "home away from home" and so comfortable when returning from a day at the beach, sailing, hiking or exploring any of the unique places on the island. You won't be disappointed with a stay here... Truly a unique and satisfying experience!
We stayed at Bliss in February 2013, and were completely happy with the accomodations. The condo was perfect for our family. The loft was the ideal space for my teenage son and his friend- they had amazing views from the top level! The location is about a five minute walk to town. The hill is a little steep, so while we were definitely able to walk up from town, (and did so a few times), it was also an inexpensive cab ride when we were feeling lazy! The patio area was fantastic- we spent a lot of time out there enjoying the sunsets and cocktails. I would absolutely recommend bliss to anyone. We will be back!
Response from the owner Thank you Colleen for taking the time to post your review. I look forward to welcoming you back to Bliss, your "home away from home" in paradise!
Dear Cynthia, I can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us. The home is beautifully furnished with large comfortable kitchen and dining areas. We used a Jeep rental with your personal parking space (discreetly convenient to the entry). Thank you for the use of the picnic equipment,as we ate lunch everyday at the beaches! Off season is wonderful for exploring the island without crowds.Some of the Cruz Bay restaurants and services were closed off season, but we did not really miss them. The weather was great. The us Virgin Islands Park is an incredible marine resource with outstanding snorkeling preserved. We loved it there and hated to leave!
“Perfect name for this Villa!”
We stayed at the Bliss June 27-July 5. It was the perfect fit for us. Upon arrival at St. John, we were met by Robin from Cimmaron at the dock. We followed her up to the Villa, where she showed us around and answered any questions we had. The Villa is beautifully decorated. I especially loved the kitchen where everything you may need was at your fingertips. We also cooked on the grill that was right on our patio. The villa is a five minute walk to town. We just loved it and will be back next year to stay at the Bliss!
Response from the owner Thank you Kim for taking the time to leave your review of the Bliss. It helps so many people. I'm so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do and enjoyed it's comfort, convenient location and all its amenities. Can't wait to welcome you back to your "home away from home in paradise" next year.
“Spring Break 2012”
This is a lovely unit and fits a family of four nicely. The view is awesome, we spent a lot of time on the patio and I understand Cynthia has recently improved this space by adding a bar on the railing out there. In my opinion you want to rent a jeep on St John as the whole island is hilly. From Bliss you are minutes (or a short downhill walk) from town and there is easy access to beaches, shopping and the east side of the island. The local management company,Cimmaron, was easy to work with the few times we needed something. Their staff called ahead, greeted us when we got off the ferry and gave us their cell phone number.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and to also include pictures! I just added a picture on this site (#16) that shows just a portion of the custom-built Ipe deck bar I had built all along the rail on Bliss's deck. It's a little hard to tell from this picture, but it's plenty wide enough to hold dinner settings, computers, cocktails and appetizers, and, of course, the little bowl of sugar water to put out for the lovely (& thirsty!) bananaquits (aka sugar birds). Once I get down to Bliss myself again, I'll take some better pictures and post them.
“The Bliss is truly absolute Bliss!!!”
We just left the Bliss and miss it terribly. It is an absolutely gorgeous condo that is comfortable beyond belief, clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, close to town and I could go on and on. We will definitely be back again. Thank you so much Cindy for sharing your wonderful home with us!!!
Response from the owner I am so glad you had such a great time at Bliss and in St. John; that's my goal for each and every one of my guests. I'm very happy to hear that you want to come back and look forward to speaking with you again in the near future. Thank you for taking the time to post your review; its much appreciated.
