Miles Away is absolutely awesome!
Leslie from Destination St John was very friendly and spent alot of time introducing us to the electronics, big flat panel in LR and each BR has a nice TV, all with cable and DVD, kitchen stereo with a very nice selection of CDs which we enjoyed. There is also a big selection of DVDs.
The home has a security system which we set each time we left the property, it also has a "safe" setting which can be used at night while you are in the villa.
The home is exquistely decorated and the art is beautiful. The owners really love this place and it shows!
The kitchen is gorgeous with granite and upscale appliances plus all the utensils and gadgets one needs.
Bathrooms have alot of marble and teak, very roomy and bright.
Nice pool with plenty of sun,toys and privacy.
It has amazing views looking over the valley and Fish Bay. Our very first afternoon we experienced a spectacular rainbow, and several throughout the week. At night the stars were dazzling, the MB has a telescope (we are not savvy enough to try it out). We had a stunning full moon during our visit.
The terrace is very large with big cushy overstuffed furnishings for lounging and patio table for dining, with a great breeze. We enjoyed breakfast there most mornings and a few dinners as well. Papaya trees right off the terrace attracted many hummingbirds for our entertainment.
It is located far enough from town that it is pretty quiet and yet is only about a 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay.
The only downside, if I had to name one was construction a couple of houses down the road and above as well. The noise stopped around 3:30 or 4 in the afternoons and never woke us in the mornings (we slept with the BR closed and A/C on) Both homes look to be almost completed.
Miles Away is well-cared for, nicely appointed, handsomely decorated and is extremely comfortable. We will definitely return to Miles Away in the future.
