Reservations via VRBO

Following their recent acquisition by Expedia, VRBO has added a sliding scale service fee, which is usually about 5.5%. However, they can serve as a trusted financial intermediary, processing your deposit and balance payments, and they also offer add-on services, such as trip insurance. VRBO accepts credit cards, but they also offer a simple to use eCheck payment method. Whenever possible, we prefer payments via eCheck, to avoid credit card processing fees. VRBO's rate scheduler does not support the variable short stay premium described in our Rates section above, but our policy is described in a footnote to the Rates section of our VRBO pages.

Perfect villa! AMAZING view!!!

"My family and I recently stayed at Coconuts and it was absolutely perfect. The view is so spectacular pictures do not do it justice at all. We have stayed on many Carribbean islands, but this view out did them all. The pool was great and the temperature for hot August nights wes perfect. We cooked and ate every breakfast and many dinners in the outdoor kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the airconditioning worked great. Water pressure was low but that was to be expected. All in all a great experience. We hope to return soon, but, however I just checked the dates we were interested in and they are already booked! All in all a great place and I highly recommend it!"

An Extraordinary Villa

"We had a wonderful time at Coconuts. It was our first visit to St. John and we were out exploring the island daily but made sure we were back on time to enjoy the villa. We loved it so much we ended up just staying in for a day before we left. My boys were never bored in Coconuts, there was so much for them to do that I could just appreciate the spectacular view with a book and relax. We had all kinds of fun animals visit us too: hummingbirds, sugarquits, elk, cats, even two iguanas. The owners are a pleasure to work with, and Coconuts is a little piece of paradise. One of the best vacation villas we have stayed at. Don't hesitate to book it."

A little slice of heaven

"We just got back from a two week stay at Coconuts. The house is just as depicted in the picture and the owners (Kevin and Danielle) was a pleasure to deal with. We had one minor issue with the house and they immediately answered and tried to solve it. I also left a couple of items there and they were so helpful with finding someone to ship those to me. We were so completely satisfied with both St. John and Coconuts that we already booked the villa for next year!

The house itself is in a great location.. about 10 minutes from town and 20 minutes from the beaches. The hills were something to get used to, but after a couple of days it was no big deal. The view is amazing... it has become my happy place and I can picture it in my mind at any time. We loved the big covered gazebo and the outdoor kitchen. House is very private even though you are in a residential area. The teppanyaki was something new for us, but we loved cooking on it and my husband is already trying to see how we can incorporate one at our home! Bedroom very comfortable and a/c worked great. We did not use the living room at all as most of our time was spent outside.

Thanks again for everything and we will be back!"

Can't wait to return....

"Plumeria was just as pictured. Beautiful property. We loved being up on the hill. The views from the deck were amazing. Truly gorgeous. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub when we weren't at the beaches. The location of the home was great. Not too far away from anything on St. John. Kevin and Danielle were great hosts throughout the trip and offered many helpful recommendations for things to do on and off the island. We will definitely be returning."

perfect home, great location, amazing view

"My family and I just had the most wonderful week at Plumeria. Here are notes: The view is ridiculous. Our favorite part of the house was the huge outdoor living space (deck, pool, hot tub, porch, and dining area), which made it easy to enjoy the view all day and night. It looks just like the pictures.

The house is spacious, beachy, clean, and very comfortable, and was stocked with everything we needed to have a very easy vacation.

The homeowners left all kinds of detailed information about the house (how to use every remote; how to use the outdoor cooktop and grill) and the island (descriptions of beaches, trails and restaurants). We had no questions, and everything was a piece of cake. Beach towels, various sizes of snorkel gear, beach chairs and coolers are all provided. We packed three empty beach bags and fins for the two of us that had them; otherwise, we used what was at the house.

The house was easy to get to and only about a 10 - 15 minute drive into Cruz Bay. We loved Plumeria, and all of us (family of four) cannot wait to make a return trip."

A little piece of heaven

"We just finished a week at Plumeria and it was everything we dreamed of. The place looks exactly like the pictures but the views are even better! We watched some incredible sunsets from the deck. It was such a relaxing week. The layout of everything is perfect, it is nice to have the bedroom separate from the living area. And the deck is huge, there was so much room to spread out! We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub everyday. We hiked Rams Head Trail which was amazing, it was fun to see the other side of the island. Cruz Bay is only about a 10 minute drive so you are close to all the restaurants. We could not have had a better experience and would definitely stay here again. It really is a little piece of heaven!!

The owners responded promptly to any of our questions and the whole trip went smoothly."
