My husband and I staying in Opar Villa for our honeymoon May 13-20, 2001. It has a wonderful location on Klein Bay on the south side of St John. Amenities include a great hot tub, a small pool (7X15?), spacious deck with plenty of very comfortable deck chairs, and outdoor showers (but there are a few inside as well)
We enjoyed this villa very much, the location was incredible and we could access the bay below (although it was very very difficult to - you need to be in good shape and good at rock scrambling since there is just a rope to yet you most of the way down). The layout is suitable for families or honeymooners - but I don't think that I would recommend it for couples who want some privacy from one another. The layout of the house is one main building with the living room, dining room, well equipped kitched (watch the knives - they are really sharp) and an upstairs loft bedroom with two twin beds. Seperating the main house from the sleeping quarters is the deck, pool, outside shower etc). The sleeping quarters include two queen bedrooms which have seperate entrances and bathrooms but are right next to one another (and sound will travel).
There are extensive gardens surrounding the villa with gorgeous bougainvilla and hibiscus covering the grounds. There are no nearby neighbors - but up on the hill you can see the other homes.
We were very happy with the villa and would return if we were alone (although it would not necessarily be our first choice). The best part was watching the turtles surface as they were feeding in the bay below and watching two waterspouts form in the bay as a storm passed over. It is a nice villa which was clean, bug free, rodent free, wonderfully located and nicely appointed. We rented through Lisa Durgin @Vacation Vistas, who was terrific!
