My wife and I have wanted to stay at Reef Madness ever since we started reading the blog published by the owners during the building of this villa. Our recent 10 day trip afforded us the opportunity to do so. It was our second trip to St. John and the first time that we have stayed on the Coral Bay side of the island.
You really have to nit-pick to find anything less than flattering to say about Reef Madness. For folks that aren't used to driving on St. John roads, the drive up to the villa may be a little intmidating at first, but as you get used to the roads here in general, you'll find that you won't mind the drive soon enough - you may even enjoy it!
The villa consists of a great room with contains the kitchen, dining, and living areas, and two nearly identical bedrooms - one upstairs and one downstairs. Each of these rooms are seperate from the others.
All of the furnishings and amenities at Reef Madness are first class. Not only are the appliances all top quality, the pots and pans are as well!
There is a great entertainment system, a washer and dryer, and - get this - a stand alone ice machine in addition to the ice maker in the freezer!
There is satellite TV in the great room and the bedrooms, and the view from the infinity edge pool over looking Coral Bay harbour is to die for!
It is apparent that just about every possible need for guests here has been anticipated and provided for. There are beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers for those forays out and about, and binoculars for when you want to take a look at the scenery from the great front porch or the pool deck.
Like any other place, from time to time things go wrong. We had a problem connecting to the wireless internet connection when we first arrived, which was no big deal to us, but the management company took great pains to make sure that it was resolved as quickly as possible.
The worst thing about Reef Madness (other than the fact that we had to leave it) is that it is so beautiful and comfortable that we were tempted to pass up all of the things we come to St. John for to just hang out there all day!
