We loved Villa Mar de amores from the moment we got there. Amazing views, great vibes, lovely decorations, high ceilings, comfy beds, great kitchen, just perfect. It's even nicer than the pictures. We all started smiling when we climbed to the top of the hill in our Jeep. Perfect amount of space for the five of us. Could sit on that deck any time of day and be totally entranced. The owner is great, and the on island managers were also great. We booked the house again for next year before we left!

I can't say enough amazing things about Villa Mar De amores! My girlfriend and I stayed here to ring in the New Year and we had a wonderful time. When we arrived, we found that the villa was very well stocked with everything we needed (all cookware, dishes, linens, etc.). The villa is tranquil, charming and we found it to be well maintained, not to mention that the villa is huge with plenty of room. We spent lots of time wining and dining on the wood deck and took numerous dips in the pool while soaking in the beautiful views of the ocean. We also found the location ideal. It feels very much like you're getting away from it all but if you're looking for a day in town, your a quick car ride away. The Cividini Family was very polite and communicative throughout the entire process and answered all my questions promptly. All in all, the villa is amazing with beautiful views and loads of privacy. The accommodations were above and beyond what we expected. This is the perfect place for relaxing. I would recommend it to anyone for almost any occasion. I myself plan to return with friends in the future. We already look forward to our next visit!

We enjoyed our stay at Mar de amores, the views are breathtaking, those evenings at the deck will be with us forever, the island life is such a nice experience,so easy going...Dining in town was wonderful and we also loved the beaches, Truk Bay was our favorite one.

We enjoyed the villa. It was clean. The rooms are actually a little smaller than the pictures show on the site, but I'm sure all sites use wide angle lens'. The kitchen was adequately equipped. The jacuzzi tub does not work, but there is a shower in the master bath, which is what we normally use anyway. Bedrooms are airconditioned and we slept comfortably. Pool was clean and had jets in it. A 4 wheel drive is almost a must to get up the driveway--but that's all that is normally rented on St John, anyway. Close to town. Close to Westin. All paved roads to Villa. It was really nice to work directly with renting the villa from the owners rather than a rental company. Appreciated getting our security deposit check back so quickly after returning home. The home could use a little updating and repair of minor things, but nothing to the extent of affecting our stay.

It can be cost-prohibitive for couples to stay in Villas on STJ...they're usually much more cost-friendly to multiple couples or large families. So my wife and I did a lot of villa research before this last trip to STJ, our 4th. And for the price, location, villa design, views and overall amenities (a/c in bedrooms, washer/dryer, full kitchen, etc.), Mar De amores is really tough to beat.
Only knock would maybe the lack of a hot tub, but there's a nice-sized pool that we enjoyed and preferred relaxing in after all those hot, fun days running around the island.
We did not bring our small children on this trip, but if we had, we feel like they would have done great in this villa. It's very safe.
We were really comfortable in this villa, always felt safe and secure, and the proximity to town made everything that much easier.
Highly recommend. And the owners could not have been easier to work with.
