i did a short last minute stay at nautilus 11/2/08 to 11/6/08 with a buddy. my 10th villa stay on st john but 1st rental through private homes and had a very pleasant experience and i highly recommend. nautilus is located on maria bluff and had wonderful sunrise and water views.
she was very clean, well maintained, and fully equipped. wonderful covered veranda on all sides. while not an issue for us, there is no pool but that is clearly reflected in the rental rate. while i have stayed at less expensive villas and much higher priced ones (and each had own pros & cons)i have never been more pleased overall (location, equipped and value).
while i would normally reserve 4 stars for a more luxurious villa, she compares favorably with villas costing twice as much and offering less.
one word of caution. there is an added bedroom that connects to master via the master bath and looks like a great room for kids. however, the house is on an unscreened bluff and in my opinion is not suitable for small or adventuresome children (and probably not suitable for many on the stj party folks).
