Absolutey Perfect!

Vida De Mar is spectacular! We stayed for a week with our four teenage children. The property is beautiful, the accommodations are very very nice, and the villa is close to everything you want or need on the island. The kids loved having their own villas with plenty of room for everyone. We really enjoyed hanging out at the pool and walking the beach. The main house with the kitchen and dining area is a great place to regroup, enjoy a meal together, and of course happy hour. Our greeter was very friendly and helpful. We also received a call on the first day to make sure everything was to our liking. The island of St. John speaks for itself - Paradise!! This was truly the perfect villa for us and we couldn't have been happier.

"Memories for Days "

July 15, 2014

When your looking for the perfect vacation for friends and family the first thing you do is read reviews and even when your writing a review of your own. After reading some I don't think it's necessary for me to bore folks with a list of pro's and con's but rather try and relay to whomever is reading and looking...don't look to hard because you've found it here at Vida de Mar. We stayed here with one other couple after spending a "Magical" week on a yacht in the BVI's which in itself a dream come true vacation. We were fortunate enough to spend another week in this beautiful beach front Villa ..and it will stay in my thoughts the rest of my days. Vida is quiet and private yet close to town and is everything you'd expect from a first class vacation stay. Our room was "Parrot Suite.".. It was beautifully decorated and a "cool retreat" with an amazing outdoor shower and a perfect place for a good nap...a sound sleep...or just some personal time after exploring the Island or relaxing on a killer beach or dancing the night away at funky beach bars and restaurants. We really had everything we desired with all the comforts of home and if there was a con I really can't remember what it was. Personally I spent many hours floating in the pool or relaxing in the "Zen Spa" with a cocktail listening to Island music or the waves below and cooking up something freshly caught from town on the Barbie...What a life! I believe no matter how many folks you choose to come here with you will enjoy the sanctuary of your room...the modern and tastefully decorated "great room" for your time and gatherings, and the overall layout of this Villa. Booking was easy..the price was right...and these folks want you to have your dream vacation. you can tell my wife and I had the vacation of a lifetime with great friends and "Memories for Days" We have not stopped talking about it since we returned home to Carmel, CA and now we just need to figure out how to return as soon as we can with more friends. I would not hesitate to choose Vida has the Island flavor you are dreaming about.

Outstanding home

May 4, 2014

We came to the house with 10 adults and a 7 month old grandson. It fit all our needs and had so much more. It was exactly like it was described, clean, comfortable and perfect. Close to town, yet private.
