Comments from the Guest Book


This was our first stay here on SJ.  We really enjoyed the villa and all its amenities including the pool and A/C.  The beaches were beautiful and the weather was perfect!  We toured the island with Fins, Feathers, and 4-Wheel and spent many hours floating in the water….

Yes!  This week was everything we hoped for and more! The house is wonderful, the weather has been perfect, and the water warm.  This was our 1st trip to the island – a 50th birthday celebration that has been in the making for almost a year and no disappointments!  Just not enough time to see everything and do everything.  We will definitely be back and your home will be our 1st choice!

What a fabulous week!  We spent Saturday and Sunday just unwinding by the pool…. We ventured to Coral Bay and had a great “crunchy fish” Reuben sandwich at Miss Lucy’s….  Next time we want to “beach hop”.  We also enjoyed just relaxing and fixing our meals in the beautiful villa…. St John captured our hearts and we will be back!

Thank you, Calypso del Sol!  A fantastic week has gone by here in St. John. From snorkeling to horseback riding through the mountains, we had a fabulous time! 

P.s.  The bright green iguana who likes to “chill” by the pool is named Charlie! 

Thank you again.

Our visit was wonderful.  Your home is beautiful and spacious with great views. Porches and decks with very nice furnishings were a plus.  We have stayed on St. John for 5 years over the holidays and your home is probably the nicest we have had. You included lots of extras, like paper products, cleaning items and detergents.  The food and drink gift basket was really nice to have upon our arrival.  We really enjoyed the quality and the peace and quiet....  Thank you for all your hospitality, and making us feel welcome….  Your home is beautiful, and a great location from town, with a nice neighborhood.  We would love to come back!

Bananas are yellow.

Iguanas are green.

We are all so mellow

And feeling so keen!


Like a little tadpole

In a big old fishbowl

We are eager to extol

Calypso del Sol!

It has been a fantastic week in St John at Calypso del Sol.  The days and nights here provided ample opportunity for fun and relaxation…Thank you for this wonderful place!   It is 18 degrees in Brooklyn right now, 75 degrees in St. John. I wonder if this house needs a caretaker…?  Day-O!

So many trails; so little time.

So many restaurants; so little time.

So many islands; so little time.

So many beaches – we had time!

And a great time!

Another beautiful and amazing week has ended in St. John.  We were so lucky to be here taking refuge from the New England weather.  Our week has been filled with snorkeling, tanning, exploring, and so much more.  Our trip to St. Thomas was great for us ladies… and the men enjoyed the complimentary beers at each store we purchased jewels at.  Two of us went to the dolphin exploration in Tortola…  Our tans will fade and the soft sand will be washed out of our clothes but we will never forget our fun times and great experiences in St. John.  Thank you!!

This was a perfect week with our family!  We spent our time between Cruz Bay, Coral Bay, snorkeling, eating, and sightseeing.  Our new favorite is Denis Beach…. There is so much to see and do on the island and this home puts you in a great place to take advantage.  Calypso del Sol is SO comfortable, well-stocked, and has perfect views!   The hot tub is pretty great, too!  This was our second trip here and we are sure to come back!

We loved our stay at Calypso del Sol and can’t wait to come back!  Terrific pool and decks, and the sunsets are spectacular.  Great restaurants…and of course great beaches….  We’re counting the days until we come back.

We got home from our wonderful trip a week ago….My family loved Calypso Del Sol! We had so much fun. The downstairs bedrooms were great for the kids. We spent a lot of time lounging around the pool. I met the two neighbor black labs and brought them back to be petted. We took some wonderful walks and snorkels. As always, the island is so beautiful and our trip was too short.  Thank you so much!

Your place is beautiful.  And the view breathtaking.  I could just sit there for hours and just look at the boats and the water.  We had a great time and ALL of your suggestions were invaluable.  One nice touch was having a few things in the fridge when we arrived.  And I think we left your liquor cabinet better stocked than when we arrived.  We went out to dinner 4 times.... The favorite beach was the one near Skinny Legs,  the name of which I cannot remember.  And we did go there for lunch which was a real experience….  The weather was good the whole time we were here. It rained and was overcast for part of one day, but not bad enough to curtail any of our activities….  The week flew by and none of us could believe when Friday night rolled around!...  I know when we get home we will wish we could beam ourselves right back!

It is almost 5:00 pm, I am sitting on the deck watching the beginning of what I already know will be another incredible sunset, and the sheer pleasure of the beauty I am about to behold is already rushing through my consciousness.    We cannot thank you enough for the marvelous week we have had.  The comfort of Calypso del Sol, the beauty of St. John, the marvels of the north shore beaches and bays…have brought us immeasurable pleasure.  A few notes to those who follow, especially newcomers:  Learn to snorkel; see every beach on the north side of the island; take your camera (it’s one beautiful thing after another); then back to Calypso and rum for the sunset.  Enjoy!  We certainly did!

We truly appreciate the opportunity of staying in your home for the week. This is our 1st trip to St. John but definitely not the last.  My husband and I were just married and this was our honeymoon.  We could not have asked for a better vacation.  Your home was perfect for the 2 of us.  It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable.  We enjoyed the wonderful views from the porch and the relaxing pool area.  The house is perfectly located close to town but yet very private.  The back pack cooler came in handy when hiking and spending long days at the beach.  We made a few meals here at the house and loved having a grill.  The house was stocked with everything and I cannot see myself staying anywhere else on future trips.  We tried to visit as much of the island as possible but there is never enough time. We hope to return next year with our families and bring our passports so we can visit the BVIs.  Thank you for everything!  We really hate to leave!  This was a honeymoon to remember!

Thank you for sharing your absolutely wonderful home with us.  This is our 3rd trip to St. John….  It is our 1st time staying at a villa instead of the Westin and we absolutely loved every moment of it.  You had everything here that we needed, including the chairs, floats & coolers which make it so easy for us to go to the gorgeous beaches and spend the day – which we did enjoy doing every day.  The views were spectacular from the veranda and th3e pool was wonderful as well.  We went to just about every beach…  We ate our diners out every night except for barbeque from Candi’s one night but our next visit we will eat in more and enjoy the house more.  Plan on coming back next year.  Thanks again!

We loved staying in your beautiful home.  It was so comfortable and we had everything we needed.  Thank you for the welcome package – the pineapple was incredible!  This is our second time to visit St. John and we like it so much…  I spotted the three iguanas.  Some of our favorite moments were sitting on the veranda enjoying the fabulous sunsets and beautiful boats in Chocolate Hole.  

P.S.  The island lost power for about 2 hours – it made for an exciting evening.  Thank goodness the home is well stocked with candles and flashlights!

The end of a great vacation is here!  This is our 2nd time in St. John and we hate to leave!  The view is wonderful, pool is so refreshing, and the balcony just off the kitchen is wonderfully bug free!  St. John Off the Beaten Path was a very informative book (we did hike a little)….  As I am writing I am seeing at least four black hummingbirds….  You don’t have to bring anything except sunscreen!

The Bushwhacker Bandits came to St. John for their 1st stay on vacation in Calypso del Sol and were NOT disappointed!  A picture perfect place for 3 couples.   We enjoyed the flora, fauna, and sunsets!  …Proximity to Cruz Bay for ease of shopping and eating out is a plus! Very nicely appointed and well maintained villa!  We have all enjoyed our stay tremendously!

Calypso del Sol is a wonderful villa.  We love the floor plan.  All three bedrooms are equal and private.  The A/C worked well as needed.  The villa has easy access and wonderful views.  The porches, pool, hot tub are great. We made us of the laundry room, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler.  We would definitely book Calypso del Sol again – the villa made this trip so enjoyable!

We loved our trip here!  Your house is beautiful and very comfortable.  We checked out the entire island and all of the beaches….  The ”critters” right here outside your balcony behaved for us when we took their pictures.  (Do you know about the 3 iguanas that live in the tree on far side of the balcony?)  The bananaquits (sugar birds), hummingbirds, and parakeets kept us entertained.  Thanks so much for letting us have this opportunity!

What a fabulous place to spend vacation.  This was the most relaxing vacation, so laid back.  The house served every need.  Sunshine, pool, Jacuzzi, bug free (thanks for the screens!!) and spectacular….  We enjoyed sitting on the veranda watching the sunsets and the boats in the bay.  The nicest thing is how clean and beautiful and great condition the house is in.  Everything so well appointed – we felt like we were home.  Thanks for a great week @ Calypso del Sol.  We hope to be back soon.

We had a wonderful vacation.  The beaches were beautiful and we really enjoyed Trunk Bay with its awesome snorkeling.  I came with my parents, my brother, and sister and loved having family time in this gorgeous villa.  The views were beautiful and the sunsets divine.  The location was perfect with an easy access to town but quiet in the house.  …My name is KS and as my first trip to St. John it was the best trip ever.

I am now talking – MS.  This was a great trip and I hope we come back next year or sooner.  My room is great and I love sharing it with my sister K.  My bed is also really comfortable.  I like the pools so much.  I just had to take a dip before leaving.  It was fun having rafts and a hot tub.  Thanks for everything.

We all had a great time in your beautiful (well-stocked) home.  Thank you for providing us all the luxuries of home with this gorgeous view & special island.   My husband & I have been here many times and finally brought the kids.  Don’t think we’ll go anywhere else now for spring break!  Thanks again for every thing.

It has been a great home for our group to stay in for our vacation time.  The pool & hot tub are great.  Everything was very clean and well done.  We enjoyed being able to enjoy the sun or using the patio for shade.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.  It was perfect in every way.  The design of the decks kept us lobsters from broiling, yet plenty of exposure for us other times to get rid of our winter pall.  Hope to be back next year!
