What a terrific place! The views, house, and vibe were just wonderful. Felt like we were living in a postcard picture. First time visitors to this part of STJ and will definitely be back…and to Debolina!!! Thank you!

Kim & Andre’ , NY , 02/2017

Amazing Views, beautiful weather and wonderful house! It was great that we could enjoy our vacation together with extended family. Hospitality here is awesome- hope to return someday.

We enjoyed staying at DeBolina this year and would be interested in staying again in 2016.

Joanne & Family , 11/2015

First off, we had a fantastic time during our two-week stay at DeBolina.  The view from DeBolina is truly one of the most beautiful views on the island -- especially the sunrises.  The kitchen was great for meal prep, and we loved returning home after a day at the beach for a refreshing dip in the pool.  The home's location is perfect for beaching on the North Shore beaches as well as Salt Pond, Great Lameshur, and hiking to Ram Head. Your office staff provided great service from our first day meet-and-greet to helping correct internet service issues. The home was clean and appropriately priced and we all agree that we would return for another stay. Also, I am writing this after we received a heavy snowfall.  Wish we were back on STJ!

Connie & Family , 02/2015

We've only been home less than 12 hours.  When I woke up this morning I was not looking to the sunrise over the beautiful gardens and enjoying the pleasant breezes but instead looking out at snow and cool wind.  What a difference a day makes.

DeBolina was a perfect home-away-from-home for us.  We have been to the island several times and stayed in four other properties.  DeBolina is our favorite, hands down, and it will be our number one choice when we return.  We prefer the Coral Bay end of the island and DeBolina gives us easy access to Coral Bay but yet it is just a short drop down on the north side to our favorite beaches.  And jumping over to Cruz Bay is easy from the house.  The home is well cared for, spacious and inviting.  If it was too breezy on the front deck we could easily find another deck area to enjoy.  The bedrooms have more than adequate space and storage, plenty of light and windows for island breezes, and comfortable bedding.  With five bathrooms it was easy to feel you had privacy and they provide LOTS of towels.  We always had sufficient water and plenty of hot water for showers.  (For those who have never been to St. John in the winter, water availability can be a problem in some rentals.)  The kitchen has absolutely everything you need for cooking and serving.  We really appreciated the icemaker in the fridge for all those tropical drinks!

From the easy reservation process, good care-taking of our many questions prior to arrival and responsiveness during our stay we couldn't have asked for better property managers.  Karen, Kay and staff took great care of us, even helping us out in an emergency with our car.

Thank you for an absolutely fantastic paradise for our entire family.  We returned after 19 years (honeymoon then) with our 3 boys (15, 13 and 11).  It was the BEST VACATION EVER!! DeBolina is gorgeous in the morning and just as fabulous at night.  We snorkeled every day at a different beach.  The soutside beaches were awesome, especially on those windy days.  Leinster Bay was  worth the walk, the best snorkeling for spotted rays, turtles, nurse sharks and more.  Swimming in the pool at DeBolina wa so memorable, especially for Neill!  Thank you again for sharing your paradise wtih us.  We can't wait to come back next year!

Laurie, Brian, Camron, Nolan & Neill , Sterling, MA , 04/2013

We all had a wonderful time at DeBolina.  We have stayed at many other houses over the last ten years and so for DeBolina is on the TOP of our list! One of our highlights was watching our 8Tuff miles race team - out of 1500 people, we had 3 entrants!  Congratulations! Lots of fun hiking, snorkeling, swimming and sharing aour own seafood we brought from Connecticut.  Visiting Sally and Buck is always a treat, we will back!

The Extended King Family , Connecticut, Boston & Oregon , 02/2013

Thank you for a wonderful week on a beautiful island!  The house was perfect for us - every amenity we could want and a great lcoation.  We loved the view of Coral Bay.  It doesn't get better than that!  The kids had a great time snorkeling the reefs.  We saw many turtles and several sharks (nurse & lemon).  What exciting stories for them to tell at school!  Well definitely be back!

Ryan, Katie, Lauren, Julia Evan and Maia Kinzy , Austin, TX , 08/2011

Thank you for opening your home for us to escape reality in such fine fashion!  DeBolina is a delight, as is Coral Bay.  Best snorkeling? Waterlemon Cay. Note: Beware of (ouch!) black sea urchins! Best cheeseburgers? Skinny Legs. Best Sunset Sail? Capt. Rick, Cimmaron Yacht Charters. Best Beach? Gibney or Hawksnest (the debate continues).  Best lime and coconut? Skinny Legs.

Cowan, Doyle & Ellington Families , NC and VA , 05/2011

New Hampshire (20 degrees and snowing) to St. John (81 degrees and sunny), what an amazingly beautiful world we live in. St. John and the people who live here are very special - Thank you!

Nancy, Chris, Sharon & Jim , New Hampshire , 04/2011

Loved everything, but leaving!  St. John is truly paradise.  Hope to see you next  year!

P.S. The note is short because my son is going on a donkey hunt.

Scolow, Bright and Chism Families , 04/2011

We just arrived (4 of us) from Idaho and Maine.  So far so good.  Amazing views. Main room and porch are fantastic spaces. Shower has nice water pressure - very good. Big storm overnight March 30. Thewind in the trees was intense, as was the noise made by the donkeys!  I'm sure the island needed the rains.

Windspree Guests , Idaho & Maine USA , 03/2011

A wonderfully relaxing vacation at Debolina with our friends from Idaho.  Gorgeous views and a coooling breeze make this a great loation. Thanks!

The Fusain Family , Freeport, ME , 03/2011

Thank you, Thank you for making our vacation relaxing and enjoyable. Karen, our family thanks you for your understanding and kindness. Debolina was absolutely perfect. The house was what we all needed, especially the children. We will keep this on our list for the next visit. I just wanted to express our gratitude for you help. Again, thank you!

Goldbach , 05/2010

What a gift you give your guests; Debolina is just amazing in so many ways. We weren't sure we'd ever want to leave that spectacular view. When we flnally did, we discovered the wonderful flavors of Coral Bay. The house was in the perfect locaton for us. Our routine found us heading down to Hawksnest & Maho for the day and back up to Columbo's for smoothies before heading "home" to cool off in the pool. We enjoyed family meals, games, reading and glorious sunrises and sunsets. Thank goodness we had 10 days to enjoy it all, but of course even that is never enough time so we look forward to a return to Debolina really soon. Thanks again for all of this

Newman/Client-Bayard Family , MS , 03/2010

Roses are red, violets are blue, Debolina is lovely-You'll enjoy it too! Thanks for the great vacay!

Burgin Family , 12/2009

Once again we had a FANTASTIC stay here at Debolina. This is our second time and the view gets more and more amazing. We took advantage of the wonderful beaches, and just loved Maho for the entire family. We used the well stocked kitchen but also enjoyed some time out. Skinny Legs, Shipwreck, Aqua Bistro and Paradiso. Beautiful conch shells everywhere!! We still stop at Columbo's Smoothie's almost everyday. Rum or no rum, they're still delicious! We just love it here and feel so lucky to have Debolina to stay at. Of course, cocktails by the pool in the afternoom are a fun way to wind down the day. We look forward to coming back again next year! Oh, glass blowing at Maho Camps is a really neat thing to do!

Henricksons , 04/2009

Our two families enjoyed their stay immensely. We enjoyed using the kitchen and had great converstaions around the dinner table. The weather was great; the views stunning. The snorkels were, as always, amazing. The walk to Waterlemon was well worth it. We're soaking up as much sun as we can before we head back to Canada.

CANADA , 01/2009

Our 3rd visit to DeBolina and once again, we couldn’t have loved it more- 3 Families celebrating many decades of special friendship in a very special place. Both house and island feel like a home away from home. As I watch the sunrise on our last full day, wistful for more. I already anticipate our return. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Diane, Joe, David and Julia , 12/2008

We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect! We loved Maho Beach, we saw sea turtles and sting rays there. The pool was great. The kitchen is beautfully stocked-we used everything. The breeze was so great, we didn't even think about using the AC. This was a wonderful place for a family reunion.

VA , 07/2008

Thank you so much for a fabulous stay at Debolina. As a group of moms who rarely get together we soaked up every moment of our stay. From the unbelievable views, the ocean breezes, the warm and inviting home ot the breathtaking island scenery…we had a blast! Thank you for your generosity.

MA , 06/2008

Our second stay at Debolina-we love being close to North Shore Beaches and Skinny Legs! The views are magnificent! Will be back!

Haygoods , 05/2008

Thank you! The house is just perfect for a family to stay at. The view is amazing! We all had such a wonderful time, especially the children. We look forward to visiting again next year.

Henricksons , 01/2008

The guidebooks may coo over the divine North Shore beaches, but we agree: there's nothing to top quirky, quiet Coral Bay and breezy Debolina. A spectacular house for families to gather, beautifully designed to set off the view. Time flew-well spent away from internet chat, phones and the everyday fuss. Loved Miss Lucy's, but equally loved a PB&J from the deck. The house-well named: Into the Wind-has been a perfect setting for our St.John experience-everything one could want or need.

Sebrings , FL , 07/2007

What a place! The view, the pool…I can go on and on! This is our 5th year visiting St. John and this is the best home we've rented yet. My son loved the loft; my daughter loved her own room off the pool. My husband and I slept as if on board a ship with the ocean breezes. We had a wonderful 2 weeks and hope to return. The air is truly rare up there!

Dales , RI , 03/2007

A wonderful family reunion-11 of us savoring the view, beaches and the ambience of this house. Thank you for keeping the place to pristine-great farewell dinner at Miss Lucy's.

NY/CT/VA , 02/2007

Our first stay at Debolina and it couldn't have been any better-rooms, grounds, kitchen, views, breeze… We've visited St. John a number of times and have never had a nicer stay! We hope to return!

VA , 12/2006

We had a wonderful time at Debolina! The view is breathtaking. The breeze from the ocean is all the AC you need. It was a true delight to stay here for a week.

Jen, Mike, Chad, Kristi , 06/2006

Thank you for sharing this little piece of paradise. We love St. John, there is so much to do. One day we took a boat to the BVI's. It was SO much fun! Thank you!

Haygood/Johnson , 05/2006

The view here is fantastic, and the gardens are a plus. We loved Skinny Legs, and had a perfect excursion to to Virgin Gorda and Norman Island with Cruz Bay Watersports. What a great trip!

Wade , 03/2006

We had a wonderful time. The view is fantastic. Sweet Plantains was great. Fly Away boat chaters was so much fun. A beautiful place-so relaxing-loved the sound of the rain showers. Traversing the road was a real adventure!

Dail/Young , 02/2006

We had a great time this week! So sad to go home :( We love Coral Bay and especially Skinny's. The best days were spent at Waterlemon Cay and a trip to Virgin Gorda. We can't wait to come back! Thanks for the memories.

Baskins , 02/2006

This was our 7th trip since 1980, but this was by far the best house of all! Everyone had a fabulous time, especially with the pool. We hit all of our favorite beaches-Hawksnest, Maho, Cinnamon, Trunk, Leinster, Lameshur and Francis. The flowers are magnificent and make the atmosphere even better! Thanks so much!

Schaefers/Wilkinsons , 01/2006

Debolina owners, we thank you for a wonderful home. The nine of us made ourselves right at home. We did hear wishes for movable fans in the bedrooms with twin beds. Our front room downstairs was perfect. Our favorite place to eat was Skinny Legs, and Shipwreck had the best drinks. We cooked a lot and your kitchen is great! We loved Cinnamon Bay. A week never seems long enough, but I guess you can't play all the time. Many thanks.

Price/Cox Family , 12/2005

Our 2nd visit to Debolina and once again we couldn' t have loved it more. Both house and island feel like a home away from home. As I watch the sunrise on our last day here, I already anticipate our return. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
