“This place could use some maintenance and loving car”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

It impressed my how the place was falling apart and how desperately hot the living areas were. Air conditioners in the bedrooms were nice, but would it kill you to put an air conditioner in the kitchen, dining room, living room and TV area? So hot in those areas that it was very uncomfortable. The kitchen sink facet is falling apart and most of the doors do not close. Could be a very nice place to stay with a little improvement. The pool and pool area were nice. Canoes and BBQ grill are a good touch. If you like sleeping on the rack, you would love the beds.

Would I stay here again. NO! The advertisement was extremely misleading.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry you felt disappointed in your stay, and wish you had reached out to us sooner. We have maintenance staff on call and a 24 hour emergency phone number and could have been there in a matter of minutes, had you reached out.
The great room has never been air-conditioned and we have never advertised that it has AC. Most guests are very comfortable in this space from the seabreezes coming through the French doors and windows.
The French doors do require the pins to be set engaged to keep from blowing open. The kitchen faucet could have quickly been addressed as well, so you would not have the inconvenience through out the stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the sea kayaks and the pool. Bed firmness is really something subjective and everyone has a preferred firmness. I'm sorry they were not comfortable..
We are disappointed to see you feel that the information you had on the home was misleading, we pride ourselves in making sure guests are matched with a home that meets or exceeds their expectations. I do hope you had a great vacation here on St John and will give us another chance to exceed your expectations and make you one of our many satisfied guests. Thank you again for sharing your experience.

We loved the convenience to town. We stayed in Coral Bay last year and enjoyed the convenience to town more at Calypso Cove. Kids loved the hop in hop out pool. We enjoyed the grill and everything worked fine at the house. Would definitely stay here again.

“Nice place to stay, would rent it again, close to water, has most of what you need”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Well is was $3100 for a week plus a day in summer(8 days). It has a nice set up, air conditioned downstairs, and upstairs bedroom. The main upstairs does not have AC, just ceiling fans, gets a big humid but not too bad. Good kitchen, TV's, showers, everything works fine. The downstairs door and the upstairs door could use some fixing, both hard to open. It is right by the water, but it is Fish Bay, ok snorkeling but the beach near is not great. It is a bit from town, and two nasty hills you have to go over, but that is all part of the St. John experience. It is quiet out there, big Iguana we called "Charlie" lives there he was neat to see. Nice to have a washer and dryer there. No see ums around in the evening, Fish bay is known for that but it was not real bad. I would stay there again, but I might look for something a bit closer to town or by Coral Bay.
