Love, love, love
This house had everything for us. We had such a relaxing time. Starting with Luciah meeting us at the dock. What a joy she is. She told us all about St John and the recovery. The island looks beautiful. Then took us to the house and told us all about living in an island home. The house is so well equipped. It had things in the kitchen I would not have thought of.
The living spaces were perfect for our large family. We never felt crowded, and I loved that the bedrooms did not have TV’s. We actually hung out together.
Monte is a small drive away from town, which I loved. It is in a quiet little private area. You never hear anything from outside the house. We felt like we were on the island all by ourselves.
We found it easiest and so comfortable to spend most of our time at home. But when we did go around the island and to the beaches, it was so beautiful. What a resilient island. Hard to tell they had just had 2 big hurricanes hit.
Thank you Luciah for all that you have done for us. Looking forward to coming back.
Nice House, Great View
My extended family of 11 just stayed in this house for a week over Thanksgiving. It was perfect with all the bedrooms. The view was amazing, and my kids had a blast in the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with a myriad of utensils, cooking pots and tools. I wish the common area had been a little bigger, as it was hard for all of us to sit around together. The outside patio was nice, but unfortunately there were bugs most evenings, and with the sun shining directly in there from 1pm on, it was hot for sure. We did have a few issues, but Luciah was quick to respond and get us help.
There were some little things that didn’t work, such as lights on the back staircase, outlet in the bathroom, and bathroom doors that didn’t shut. Nothing major that ruined our time, but I’m picky about things – I’ll total admit that!
Overall, the house was nice and worked for our needs. One thing that I had trouble finding info on before we went : The guest house is by where you park, which is only a short staircase from the house (so it’s close). The second floor of said building is a tight winding metal staircase outdoors. It’s cute for sure, but definitely not an easy place for elderly to use or possibly young children. Not a complaint, just wanted to give the info.
Owner’s Response:Thank you for your review Stacey,
I am so glad you had a great time and Luciah was available to take care of any issues you may have had.
Looking forward to your return.
Very nice home, great views and comforts! We loved St John! Luciah, the property manager, was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Additionally, she provided some recommendations on jeep rentals and boat charters, both of which were top notch.
A Dreamy Villa
We frequent St. John and were overjoyed to bring along all of our adult children and granddaughter on this visit. Monte Bay Villa was perfect for our group, each couple had their own private bedroom/bathroom with cozy clean bedding, towels and beautiful surroundings. We loved the big kitchen, sitting areas, dining areas…we even had a catering company, Passion Fruits, come to the villa to cook us a beautiful meal! It was amazing! We loved coming home from the beaches each day to relax by the pool and cook dinners. Luciah was so wonderful to work with, she is always there to answer any questions along the way while you are awaiting your visit and was so pleasant to meet upon our arrival. The views are stunning from the villa, looking over the turquoise waters, listening to the sounds of the island and falling asleep to the sounds of waves crashing on the rocky shore below was so soothing. If you have a big group of couples…don’t hesitate to stay at Monte Bay Villa, it’s truly magical!
We loved our stay at Monte Bay. Sonya was wonderful to work with and very engaged in making sure everything was perfect. Make sure you ask her lots of questions before you head that way. She is a great local ressource. The house is gorgeous and the two outdoor showers were a hit! We would definitely return to spend more time in this perfect paradise. We spent a day at Hawknest beach and one at Trunk Bay. Both gorgeous beaches within a few miles. Snorkeling and clear turquoise water made for a happy group. Renting a Jeep on the island is the best way to go as it is VERY hilly. There are a few grocery stores nearby with “ island prices.” We could see some remnant of the storm but it didn’t take anything away from the beauty of this place.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your time at Monte Bay. We also love your recommendations. It is always great for others to see our guest recommendations. I also love these beaches and the beautiful waters.
We are looking forward to your return.
Happy travels, Rhonda
The house is absolutely beautiful.. We had great time.
Owner’s Response:Dear Diana,
