Everything was perfect...great views, villa was very clean and organized. My suggestion for the kitchen though would be have a crock pot! We appreciated a phone call from the office with departure instructions. Loved the island--we will be makeing this an annual vacation!

The accommodation was very comfortable with all the amenities one could want including a modern kitchen, washer & dryer, nice living/dining room, a large upper bedroom and lower separate (& private) master bedroom. Very nice swimming pool. The views from the villa were breathtaking! Every night we sat on our deck with a glass of wine and watched the incredibly beautiful sunsets.
During our stay we drove all over the island. The beaches were beautiful and the crystal clear water was the prettiest we had ever seen. Good restaurants too. Highly recommend Sunset Ridge Villas and the island for a relaxing getaway. We are coming back next year ... really best vacation ever!

We love staying at Sunset Ridge. It's not a resort nor does it have amenities that most vacationers expect. We love the privacy, the smallness, the views and the sunsets from the pool. It's our kind of place!

We stayed at Sunset Ridge Villa E from 7/6/13 thru 7/13/13 and we had a fabulous stay. The property is very well kept, clean and the management company was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. The unit was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all of the things we needed for the week. The welcome bag was also an unexpected surprise which added to our enjoyment.
The trade winds at the top of the hill did keep the large Villa cool and even with the windows open there was no insect problem. The master bedroom Villa was on the hot side at night even with the ceiling and box fans on high. My wife actually slept in the other building until all of our party arrived as the temperature was much more pleasant. The view from the unit, the patio, and especially the pool deck were amazing and we spent many hours just sitting and enjoying with morning coffee or evening drinks.
I thought the Villas were a great value and a terrific place to start and finish our days exploring all the sites the island had to offer.I would definitely recommend the the Sunset Ridge Villas to anyone planning on a visit to St.John.

My son and I spent a week in Unit D at the end of June. The unit is very spacious and we were able to spread out and each have our own space. The unit was clean upon our arrival and the fresh flowers on the dining room table were beautiful. We cooked in for breakfast, packed up our lunches and usually went out for dinner each evening after enjoying the pool - we had it to ourselves every time - or just taking in the amazing views from the property. The unit was fully stocked with everything we needed including a new washer and dryer which allowed us to pack light. Although we traveled in June and were a bit concerned that the unit had no air conditioning, we were never warm due to the amazing trade winds and numerous ceiling and floor fans provided. The unit also came with plenty of beach chairs, coolers for our use and previous guests left web hind some snorkel gear and toys for our use. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to our return!

There is a reason why they named this villa Sunset Ridge, it's all about the views. After a relaxing day on one of the 50 beaches on St. John we would open a bottle of wine and watch the sunset every night. For the price, Sunset Ridge is an excellent deal...we have stayed at the Westin... paid twice as much... had half the living space and all the chairs around the pool had someone's towel on it...any time we wanted to use the pool at Sunset Ridge we practically had it all to ourselves...in other words no crowds lots of peace and quite. It's a very relaxing place to go.
