About Vistaero. WOW. I mean, really, WOW. All of us stood with jaws dropped when we got out of the jeeps and saw the amazing views. Vistaero absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. The pool is huge and beautiful. The hot tub is a real must for a few in our group, and this one was great. The deck space was just incredible, with views of the sunset at one end and Ditliff point at the other, with Rendezvous Bay shimmering front and center all day long. Several days it was clear enough to see St. Croix, and most nights the stars were absolutely dazzling. We saw shooting stars!!
There was sun on the pool pretty much all day long and plenty of covered outdoor space for those that needed a break from it. There was brand new plastic stemware for sipping drinks by the pool and a spare blender (since we wore the first one out :)
We ate dinner in a lot this year, and the 10 of us dined very comfortably on the outside table. The dishes were new and lovely, the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need and the coffee cups are huge! The only thing I will bring next year - a small knife sharpener.
There are incredible breezes day and night, so it was always so comfortable to sit and be mesmerized by the views.
The inside space also exceeded our expectations. There is new furniture in the dining and living spaces (although honestly, these rooms were hardly ever used since we LIVED outside). The kitchen was very well equipped and nicely laid out for group cooking. There is a lovely half bath and a modern laundry room off the kitchen to complete the great room.
The bedrooms all had great split AC units and the bedding all looked new. The bathrooms all had granite countertops and big showers. Because this villa is so HUGE, there was tons of privacy and everyone loved the fact that the bedrooms were all reached from the outside.
Destination St. John is a great company to work with. They and the owners are doing a wonderful job with Vistaero. We had no problems to report, but while we were there an employee came by to measure the outdoor carpeting in the shaded area in front of the main house and delivered a new one the day we were leaving.
I have been to STJ many times and this is the first time I actually booked the same villa for next year - and I did that before we even left the island!
