Loved our family vacay villa; quiet and with an unforgettable view including the iguanas!Elizabeth G.
Well don't let my delay in posting a review undermine the terrific time my family had in St. John in July. A large part of the trip's success was staying at Calypso del Sol. In booking the villa, Sally was super easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. Once the villa was booked, Sally supplemented our trip planning with helpful information about the area. We contacted the property manager on the island on the ferry ride over and she met us at our car rental. We followed her to the villa, which was a blessing since we needed some initial help navigating the left side of the road! Sally ensured that the house was set up for our family (12 your old twins and our 17 year old niece). The villa is lovely, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The views from either deck or the pool are unforgettable. The pool was so nice after a day at the beach. The villa's location provided easy access to the beaches and to the grocery and restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped so we ate in a few nights and tried out the excellent restaurants the other nights. The ability to make our own lunches allowed us to spend the day at the amazing beaches or relax and enjoy the view at the villa. And we all were captivated by the iguanas that live in the nearby tree! We hope to return to St. John and stay at Calypso del Sol.
Amazing viewsLynn Y.
Wonderful: had everything we needed. Loved that the other 2 bedrooms were down stairs and the master upstairs. Great house, close enough to everything, wish I had more time to stay
I guess that means I need to return,, Thanks for a great vacation.
Calypso del Sol was even nicer than our last stay.Tom R.
This was our second stay at Calypso and our sixth to St. John, and we had an amazing trip.
Calypso del Sol was as nice as we remembered it to be. The master bedroom upstairs and other bedrooms downstairs give a nice separation between groups of people, and yet you can all gather on the sundeck, or porch, or in the great room for meals and drinks. We spent a lot of time on the covered porch watching the sunset in the evenings, and Chocolate Hole and the ocean during the mornings. We used the screened in porch a lot as well, as it makes sitting outside in the evenings quite pleasurable. We typically travel in mid-December. The weather on this trip was the best we've ever encountered - low humidity, just enough clouds for a break from the sun now and again, and cool breezy evenings. As a bonus, there were relatively few mosquitos this year.
We also took advantage of the wonderful pool at Calypso, quite a bit. Although we love going to the beaches and snorkeling, my wife and I had two pool days out of the ten we stayed, where we just lazed around the villa and pool. It's actually a great way to spend your first day after the long travel, which you can follow up with a trip to town for dinner in the evening. We brought my my wife's parents on this trip (their first St. John visit!) and they loved the pool. They weren't up for the beach trek every day like we were, so they spent a few more days enjoying the pool and hot tub. We appreciated that Calypso had beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, and an umbrella available for us to make beach trips easy.
The updates you made since our last visit in 2015, and since the hurricanes, added a nice touch. We were glad to see the villa made it through the storms without too much trouble. The new furniture was very nice and comfortable for reading and talking.
It was nice to see so many signs of recovery on the island from the 2017 Hurricanes, Irma and Maria. Although many of our favorite restaurants were still closed (Waterfront Bistro, Ocean Grill), we found some great alternatives. The Longboard was one of our favorites on this visit - we went several times for the wahoo and hamachi poke bowls! I had several great salads, all with Josephine's Greens in them. Also, the Tap and Still had very juicy burgers and great fries for cheap!
All in all, it was a great trip, and we appreciate you hosting us for a second time!
Great location and wonderful house!Debbie D.
We had a great time at Calyspo Del Sol! The house is great for giving everyone their own space with bedrooms/bathrooms and lots of great common areas to hang out as well. We had some very small issues that were resolved promptly by the management company! Our greeter gave us some of the best info on the island also! Highly recommend staying here!
Beautiful villa, relaxing, great locationCarol S.
Beautiful villa and pool. Gorgeous location over looking Chocolate Hole and out to the ocean. House was clean, nicely appointed with everything we needed or wanted. Signature, the rental company, was outstanding. Very quick to respond to everything including recommendations on where to eat. Our 2 week stay gave us a mid stay cleaning that was superb. Try it, you'll love it!
Love the house. Clean.
