    Beautiful space with great view and location

    The place was clean and well-maintained, the view was stunning, and the location was a convenient drive to everything we wanted to do in Cruz Bay and the north side beaches.

    Absolutely the Best!!!

    What an amazing trip!!! Beautiful island, beautiful people, beautiful beaches. We spent 8 days at this gorgeous villa and it wan't enough. One of the nicest, no, actually the nicest place in which we have stayed through VRBO. Paul and Alyce were amazing hosts - there when we just wanted to chat, but not around otherwise. Their island greeting was one of the best parts of the trip. Thanks to their knowledge, we knew right away all of the places we wanted to visit and how to get there. We arrived at night and didn't have to go out to find something to eat or drink in the dark thanks to them. If you love to snorkel, don't miss this island. The bed in the villa is as amazing as everyone says in all the reviews. Views are phenomenal, and we could not have been any more comfortable. Great kitchen for cooking, well stocked. When, if, we visit again, we will stay at the SeaSwan for sure!!! If you want privacy, you will get it for sure, but we found that we met some amazing people in Alyce and Paul and feel like we made some new friends.

    Loved sitting on top of a jungle with a balcony running the whole length! A nice private retreat!

    Sea Swan was perfect! It had everything we needed including baskets of cheese, crackers, muffins, apples and wine! This became our dinner since we arrived way later than expected! The jungle noises were amazing at night! We especially enjoyed the queen size lounger outside! Also, we enjoyed the beautiful tropical garden and outdoor lighting. The view is spectacular and we really felt alone and could escape there. All beach day supples were there as well! Alyce's advice to rent a jeep on St. Thomas and car ferry over and meet her escort to follow up to Sea Swan was perfect! Our favorite things on St. John was to drive to town early and have breakfast at Sun Dog and lunch at Tap Room both in Mongoose Junction. We met lots of fun people and had a riot on the Bad Kitty boat tour to the British Virgin Islands and we loved Francis Bay Beach. Our dinners were great at Morgan's Mango, Ocean 362, Extra Virgin and the Terrace. The driving is incredibly steep and curvy so get the 4 door jeep for greater stability. Lots of hiking but be careful on all the loose rocks! Wear hiking boots! There are no shoulders or sidewalks so running and biking are out of the question!

    Absolutely Perfect!

    Sea Swan exceeded our expectations! My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights from Nov. 18, 2018 to Nov. 26, 2018. The Condo is and looks exactly as described in VRBO. It is well built, very clean, has high-end quality furniture, and has all the comforts of home. The kitchen basically comes fully stocked and has everything you'd find in your kitchen at home including all condiments. The bathroom is huge and also has everything including many towels and a great shower. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The views are incredible from the long balcony off the bedroom, living room and kitchen as you gaze over Cruz Bay and the bay where the Westin is. Alyce and Paul were gracious, wonderful hosts. Even though they own the entire villa and were living on the floor above us, we never heard them and didn't even know they were there. They gave us a gift basket with homemade muffins (delicious!), cheese, crackers, two bottles of wine, fruit, etc. Paul met us at the ferry when we first arrived and gave us an escort back to the condo which is easy to get to and only 8-10 minutes outside of town. Alyce and Paul respect your privacy but are also available if you need them for anything or want to have a glass of wine. My wife and I had something going on every day as we were part of a group of over 20 friends so we never even got a chance to talk to Alyce or Paul until our last day. They supplied us with beach chairs, a large and small cooler and plenty of beach towels. The washer and dryer are conveniently located right around the corner from the kitchen and outside the kitchen door was a brand new gas grille. We also had our own driveway and parking area right next to the condo for our jeep. I was pleasantly surprised to see the island recovered from the hurricanes of 2017 and is pretty much back to normal. I think Sea Swan is the perfect place to stay and would highly recommend it to other couples!

    The location, view, and amenities were just as described. We were extremely pleased. The beautiful apartment was so nice to come home to after a full day of adventuring, and it was great to start off each morning with the amazing views!

    Perfection

    Perfect. Gorgeous. Heavenly holiday. From the moment we were met at the ferry to the moment we left at the end of our stay, we were impressed with the kindness and attention to detail we experienced. The home has stunning views. It is extremely comfortable. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. The kitchen was nicely stocked with not only all equipment we needed to prepare meals but also spices, basic condiments and a welcome basket of food. The bathroom had toiletry items needed for our stay as well as things we might need. The couples chaise on the covered porch just off the bedroom was a favorite place to lounge while the covered porch just off the kitchen was our favorite place for our evening meal. A fabulous bathroom, plush towels, soft sheets, a washer/dryer, outdoor grill, beach goods all available for our use made our visit extra comfortable. Exceptional attention to detail was evident everywhere we turned. Alyce and Paul were wonderful in communication with us both before our arrival in giving us practical information and quick to answer any questions we had during our visit. The island is uncrowded, beautiful and the people kind. You will need a car to get around. We appreciated so incredibly much the delightful lady, Wini, who greeted us upon arrival and quickly became our friend. Her genuine kindness is beyond words and being a native to the island, she gave us such a personal insight into the history, challenges, cherished treasures and humor of St John. She is an example of the heartbeat of St John. Alyce and Paul have a gorgeous home, exquisite taste, exceptional detail in comfort for their guests, and a gem in Wini. They have provided their visitors all they need for a comfortable, luxurious, relaxing stay. We look forward to return and there is no place we would rather stay than SeaSwan.
