Testimonials for Casa de Suenos - Upper John's Folly
We visited St. John and stayed at the beautiful Casa De Suenos at the beginning of December. We had the time of our lives! From the beginning of planning our trip, speaking with Kay and booking, nothing could have gone smoother. Even when we forgot snorkel equipment at the home, Kay and Windspree made it simple to have our equipment sent home. If you are looking for the most relaxing, beautiful environment to vacation, St. John and Casa De Suenos is the place to be! Thanks for having us!

What a wonderful time we had here at the "House of Dreams". The view,the accomodations of this home were everything we had hoped for. Thank you for sharing your home. Loved returning to the island this time for a surprise 60th birthday with kids and grandkids. Most of the time cooking the meals for the gang here and enjoying the view. This house was made for family gatherings.Daily walks to the Tourist Trap during nap time was fun.(For the grandparents)! as always we love everything about St.John.
We Love St.John! The View is Amazing! We want to come back every year!

You were a best friend to Nancy and we may not have done so well here with out your gracious presence.
Your support and generousity has been overwhelming. We love you and appreciate you taking us in and guiding us, as we cluelessly stumbled. Can you consider us an extension of your family with Nancy? Your home is a wonderful place. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Been coming here for 8 years.Love the home.Snorkeling is great at Francis and Salt pond.Looked at other homes,but the access to snorkeling nearlby beats out other homes. Restaurants: Shipwreck,Aqua Bistro,Sweet Plantains,Skinny legs and Donkey Diner for pizza is great. Big Dissappointment is Island Blues (owner ran it onto the ground!)
Zasada , Suffolk,VA , 02/2013

Amazing stay and loved the view!
Scott Jackson , Moorseville,NC , 04/2012
We really enjpyed our stay at Casa de Suenos and St. John. We enjoyed meals at Skinny Legs, Miss Lucy's, Vie's Snack Shack and the Tourist Trap! We chartered the Pirate's Penny for a day trip to the British Virgin Islands where we stopped at the Bath's to snorkel and see the granite formations that were so much fun! Great lunch at Cooper Island with more snorkeling at the Norman Island caves. We took day trips to Maho Bay, Trunk Bay, Caneel Bay and East End. We also got an early start one morning to hike Ram's Head for a picnic. The best part was having three generations of our family together. Enjoy your stay!

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa De Suenos and St.John. We celebrated Easter at Emmaus Moravian Church. What a welcoming congregation,with a view of coral bay better that any stained glass windows. Steve of Mathayon Catering cooked up a wonderful dinner for us. We also enjoyed meals at Skinny legs, Miss Lucy's, Vie's Snack Shop, and of course The Tourist Trap at the end of the driveway.We chartered the Pirates Penny for a day trip to the BVIwhere we stopped at Spanish Town Virgin Gorda and also at the Baths for a snorkel trip to granite rock and cave formations that were so much fun! Captain Rick was s helpful and told us all sorts of stories from Treasure Island (AKA Norman Island) the forest are on the right in the view from our porch.Great lunch on
Cooper Island with more snorkeling at the Caves. John drove us all over the island,including trips to Maho Bay,Trunk Bay, Caneel Bay and the East End. We also got an early start one morning to hike to Ram's head for a picnic of cheese sandwiches! The best part was having three generations of our family together. Enjoy your stay!
Keeser and Beauchamp , LA & VA , 04/2012

Great house, Great time, Great snorkeling ! Thanks
Peggy and Jack Dimond , NY , 02/2012
Multiple repeat visits (7 or 8) Great house. Thanks for improving the driveway. Great snorkeling Island rocks in middle of Salt Pond Bay are almost as good or better than waterlemon caye.Occasionally rough so only for good swimmers. Haulover Bay when calm in front of house. somewhat treacherous entry-might want to wear shoes and then thow them back on shore,exit is easier. Vegetation and coral is among the best. Waterlemon Cay start from beach and go around island. Francis Bay go out along right side to point. Lameshure bay is also good.go out along left and after 1st point there is Coral extending out into bay. We are good swimmers. Each snorkel lasts between 1.5-2 hours. Restaurants: Miss Lucy's,Sweet Plantains,Aqua Bistro,Shipwreck are all good!!!Island Blues is under new management and is disappointing and we used to eat lunch there everyday,hopefully will be under new management next year.Until next year(hopefully)!

A wonderful house, we loved the outdoor showers and the views from all the rooms. We’ll miss sitting on the patio at night looking at the big dipper. Very nice. The views are spectacular.

A spectacular view, a charming villa, lots of wonderful beaches and the incredible and amazing world, on the island and in the sea. So we enjoyed this place and had a great vacation. BTW, the driveway is also unforgettable “The head says it should be fixed but the heart says its part of an adventure like everything on this island."
D'Alessandro Family , Munster, Germany , 08/2010
We enjoyed Casa de Suenos! Great views great breeze! Keep the driveway as it is -- so St. John! The layout of the house is very well thought out.
Barnes and DeLongis Families , 07/2010
Our group from Peninsula Baptist church in Mooresville, NC brought Vacation Bible School to Calvary Baptist Church. We loved the house and the 50 children we shared it with this week! Thank you for sharing the wonderful views!
Peninsula Baptist Church , Mooresville, NC , 06/2010
Wow! We arrived at night tired from long traveling. I woke up at 5:30a.m. and said to my husband “Honey, open your eyes!” Waking up, to the glorious view of the ocean and the island, was breathtaking. Even when you are brushing your teeth, look up in the bathroom mirror and you see ocean view there as well! What a spot. Peaceful, beautiful, soul mending. Your villa is fantastic. I think the driveway adds a level of charm and adventure.
Diane and Ralph , 06/2010
Amazing villa. We loved our time here. It was our 1st visit to St. John and we will be back.
A wonderful week here. We always have a great time. Will be here again next year.

Paradise. Possibly my favourite place on earth. I think it’s our 7th or 8th time here.
