We returned to St John for a 7 day stay and were thoroughly pleased with our Villa, Sopra Mare. While not far from town, it's perched atop a quiet hillside that offered private balcony, patio, pool and master suite views of each island sunrise and sunset. Whether watching the passing power / sail boats or star gazing, the view was spectacular. While some promotional listings exaggerate the accommodations; this one accurately reflected the expansive overlook views and the well-designed layout of the villa.
One of the outstanding features was the fold-away floor to ceiling glass doors in the master suite and living room which offered a true open-air experience taking advantage of the villa's vantage point. Sopra Mare came fully equipped with all kitchen amenities, propane outdoor grill, beach chairs, coolers and beach towels.
The villa owner (Mike Mullen - Famed Author of "Keep Left - The Open Air Asylum Called St.John") and management company were easy to work with and very accommodating. The "briefing materials" left with us by the management staff were thorough and complete in describing the amenities of the property as well as having current restaurant menus and convenient entertainment opportunities.
We'd highly recommend staying at Sopra Mare.
