La Collina 02/15/03
Reviewers Rating: Great
We chose La Collina for a number of different reasons. This villa is set up wonderfully for families traveling together with children. Each bedroom has a pull out bed which was perfect for our group of 3 couples, 2 of which had small children. There are 2 master bedrooms, of equal size, on the first floor each with their own bath and sliding glass doors offering beautiful views. There is a living room, dining room and kitchen also located on the main floor. The other 2 bedrooms are located on the lower level with outside entries also having their own bath. The pull out sofas in each room made it possible for us, in particular, to put our children to bed and enjoy the deck not having to worry about our children being so far away. The rooms have ample room for the sofa beds. The pool area is located away from the deck making it possible to close the porch doors and not having to worry about our children, ages 2 - 11 venturing unaccompanied to this area.

The deck to this villa was the high point. It was extremely large and had plenty of seating. The view of Great Cruz Bay was to die for, with St. Thomas in he distance.

In summary:

Good points: Good location to town, wonderful views, nice layout for traveling with small children and ample seating inside and out for large groups. A/C in all bedrooms and plenty of room. Nice pool area with a porch area for your beach supplies. Plenty of beach chairs for our group.

Low points: Entry can be tricky having to cross into oncoming traffic on a hill, no water pressure to speak of in the upstairs bathrooms, we had to wear our shoes in the shower (I won't say they were dirty, they just LOOKED stained) Down stairs bathrooms were glass block with no doors. Water splashed all over the floor and toilet with each shower. There is only 1 TV for the house. No problem but after a week of Sponge Bob, I was craving for news.

Additional comments: The pool is not as large as it appears to be on-line. It is about 6ft x 8ft. This is not due to enhanced photography. After we took a picture of the pool with our camera, it appeared just as it does on the web site! The pool is however, a sufficient size. The children enjoyed it.

This Villa was perfect for the mixture of couples in our group offering security for young children and privacy (downstairs) for grandma and grandpap.
