Very Friendly & Accommodating- The Perfect Island Getaway
Breathtaking views, the owner was very gracious during a historically difficult time. We arrived just before the COVID 19 pandemic. The owner gave us extra time at a discounted rate so we could make the best travel arrangements for our family. The management company was spot on in every aspect. We loved the Eco home experience. It has made us more aware of our energy use at home. We were able to see the island like very few get to see. Cant wait to get back to love city; the owner, locals and management company made us feel like family. See ya soon.
Great layout lovely views
First experience with VRBO might just be my last
House on the hill with a spectacular view
Our family, to include myself, my husband our two children and even my parents visited for a week at the end of February 2020. Cute and comfortable place, we really enjoyed it! The view is out of this world! Whether we were having dinner at the dinner table, sitting out on the spacious balcony or lounging by the pool, you have a perfect view over Coral Bay, amazing! Very private, no neighbors that you can see from the house. The property managers did a bang up job showing us to the house from the ferry, they even offer a provisioning service (among many others) that we took advantage of. They had the fridge stocked with essentials to get us started when we arrived. Once we got to the house, she showed us around and helped us get acclimated which was nice. Before we left on our trip, we had so many questions, I mean LOTs of questions, the home owner was so great with providing detail, and responding quickly, very nice exchanges that were immensely helpful and appreciated. The house could use some minor updates and a little TLC (tender loving care) here and there but overall, a warm, inviting, private get away home with a beautiful view! We loved the stay and we loved the island! We were first timers! Also, happy that we chose Saint John over Saint Thomas!
P.S. The toilets were absolutely fine! :-)
Nice stay. Needs a little maintenance.
We stayed here for a little over a week in February 2020. We liked that it had more eco features and even the composting toilets were ok. The house is really BIG! There were only 3 of us staying at it. My wife, son and I. The layouts of the lofts over the lower bedrooms is a bit different. The house needs some maintenance and updating. Painting, tile work, etc.. For the money it was good value as we typically don't spend a ton of time at the villa. We made it work and had a great vacation.
Excellent views and comfortable home. Just minor suggestions need to leave ice for new guests, a new toaster and bedroom shades , and maybe some non breakable dinnerware. Very minor ideas to make it perfect!
Thank you for the kind words and suggestions. We are looking into those suggestions right now.
Satinwood's magnificent view is what keeps our guests returning. The view of Coral Bay, the east end of St. John and the British Virgin Islands is wonderful. The villa is close to the shops, restaurants and clubs of Coral Bay and the beaches are not a very long drive - it is a small island. Even the shopping and other amenities of Cruz Bay is only a short drive. Snorkel gear, ocean kayaks and other rental equipment is available in Coral Bay - or Cruz Bay. Sailing rentals are possible, bit should be coordinated before arrival through our on-island, expert property managers.
Satinwood is a modern green villa. We practice water conservation, advocate low power use and sustain the property with solar power (and a generator, just in case, because no one wants a power outage, which is common on the island, to interfere with their vacation). This does not mean we compromise on amenities. Satinwood has cable television, stereo, WiFi internet access, microwave ovens, full-sized kitchen appliances including a gas oven and stove, and more.
The bedrooms have the original Select Comfort firmness-adjustable, king beds. The rest of the beds are twin beds in lofts above the two main floor - the twin beds are also firmness-adjustable beds by Select Comfort.
The private pool is always a wonderful and relaxing way to finish a busy day, even if that day was at the beach. The deck is warm and private and a wonderful place for sun worshipers - just remember how warm the tropical sun can be!
Satinwood's location was very carefully selected. Our experience in the islands is long and we wanted to face the cool prevailing breezes and the carefully engineered design allows these breezes, freshened by the trees of the Coral Bay basin, to flow and through the house, exiting through high clerestories at the back. The result is an open, airy and year-round comfortable place without the need for air-conditioning. Many locations on the island absolutely do need air-conditioning. Satinwood simply does not.
Come experience Satinwood for yourself. We have many repeat guests who have visited Satinwood many, many times. Come enjoy the natural wonder and beauty of St. John!
Why Jim Damon chose Upper Carolina
Satinwood is our family vacation home, not an investment property. We have over 40 years on St. John and picked this location deliberately when there were lots of options. We chose to live off the grid and preserve the natural beauty of the area as much as possible. Satinwood remains our favorite spot to get away from it all. We hope you enjoy the magnificent views, the tranquility and privacy as much as we do.
