    Mark F from Indian Land, South Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    You can't ask for a more beautiful setting to enjoy the fantastic panoramic views offered by this villa! If you are looking for privacy and sunrise to sunset vistas, this is your spot. Very easily located from Cruz Bay, your most likely port of entrance, this location sits high on the side of the hillside above Chocolate Hole Bay below. You can literally watch the sun rise over the water until it sets later in the day past St. Thomas to the west. Just minutes to Starfish Market for anything you may wish for the kitchen or easily back to Cruz Bay for restaurants. Rent a Jeep and take in the many beautiful bays for snorkeling and enjoying the Caribbean. We loved it and dealing with Viva Villas was first class, great communication and assistance! Thank you Christine and Audrey, very attentive and helpful. Looking to return, highly recommend!

    Incredibly relaxing experience! The house is set up perfectly for two couples. Space to gather together and space to enjoy solitude when you so desire. The kitchen set up works well because you can use the kitchen and not bother anyone else. I consider that a huge plus...

    We had a wonderful time. The Villa was great and the view spectacular. Every morning looking out at the view, I felt like I was in paradise. The villa was very clean with everything you need to cook meals at home if you choose. The beds were so comfortale that we slept later than planned. We lost power after a rain storm and the property manager came right over and made sure that we got it back. We had no complaints and would rent this villa again. We were on the island for my son's wedding and staying at the villa added to the whole experience.

    a guest from St John, Virgin Islands recommends this vacation rental

    Nothing can compare to the view from Magic View Villa. It was a great house to relax and unwind in. It was very quiet and peaceful. Only disappointment was the AC in the kitchen was not working and it got quite warm as we spent time cooking our Christmas meal. Other than that all was WONDERFUL!!The constant breezes provided enough cool in the other parts of the villa that we didn't even need to use the working ACs. It is a great location close to town but it feels like you are miles away with it's peacefulness!

    • Manager Responded on 1/1/2016

      Thank so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your recent stay. We are ecstatic that you had an amazing time, enjoyed Magic and made Xmas dinner. That's exactly the magical vacation we envision for our guests! There's no a/c in the kitchen area at Magic. There is an old unit that the owners decided not to put into use and hopefully we can remove this unit over time but the villa is not advertised as having a/c in the kitchen. Magic View does have a/c in the bedrooms as well as the living room and the area, elevation and tropical Tradewinds are plentiful. We apologize for any confusion surrounding the unit in the kitchen and look forward to your return stay at this amazing home! The VIVA! Team

    The pictures don't lie the home and views are even more vivid than pictures can even capture. For a couples getaway, you will have the time of your life. Very conveniently located and very close to the Westin Hotel. We had friends staying at the Westin and had them over for dinner and sunset. Much less expensive than staying at the Westin and much more fun with your own private plunge pool.

    180 degree views. We always made a point to be back at the house for sunset. Never used the TV since we gazed at boat traffic in the Bay and dramatic clouds passing by. The drive up the mountain was a bit of a challenge but that's St. John.

    This was our 4th visit to St. John and we loved this villa! The location is convenient to town yet feels like you are away from it all. The pictures are very accurate and the views and the breezes are amazing. Even with the beautiful breezes the AC was wonderful with the July heat and humidity. The property is well maintained and comfortable. We felt at home immediately.
    We loved hiking every morning, spending the afternoon at one the the many beaches in the afternoon and looked forward to coming back to the villa to cook out and relax on the deck and enjoy the views!
    We had an issue with a running toilet and Viva was quick to respond and resolve the problem. Would highly recommend booking with Viva and will use them again!

    We have stayed at villas in S Bart for 5 or 6 years and decided to go back to S John. We hadn't been there in about 6 years and were glad we returned. We love the ruggedness of the park and the beaches are beautiful. Magic Villa was just perfect. The location was close to Cruz Bay with a magical view. The pool was a bit small but we were fine with it. I loved the kitchen and
    S was pleased it was so well outfitted.

    What a spot! Beautiful home in an absolutely spectacular setting. If you're looking for a secluded place 10 minutes from Cruz Bay's restaurants, the beaches and with a breathtaking view, this is it! While the beaches on St John are beautiful, it was difficult to leave this home each day. Description and photos on the web site are accurate but don't really do the place justice. Jessica, our greeter from Viva Villas was wonderful… very informative and helpful.
    Go to Morgan's Mango for dinner… great food and a fun spot, especially on Friday nights when Lauren Jones is performing! Snorkeling with Eco Tours at Honeymoon Beach or on your own… you can't go wrong on St John.

We had minor issues and Joe came and took care of them right away, thank you! We love ST John and can't wait to come back. We had a fabulous time and hated to come back to reality.

    We loved our stay at Magic View Villa. What an amazing view, to be able to see both sunrise and sunset from our deck was just perfect. The location was quiet and private. The road up was challenging but became fun once we got used to it. Easy drive to Cruz Bay. The villa was very comfortable, and extremely well equipped. Everything worked perfectly, internet needed resetting, but worked fine afterward. If I needed to find a nit to pick, it would be nice to have the AC working in the kitchen area. Got pretty warm while cooking, but we managed. The Viva crew, Sherrolyn and Christine were great to work with...Nakira was awesome, so helpful and pleasant. This was our first time staying on STJ, and we can't wait to come back and book with Viva!

    Magic View lived up to its name. If you are looking for a villa to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean, this is it. The villa is well furnished and beautifully decorated. As first time visitors to St. John, we found the location perfect for access to beaches and Cruz Bay. However, when we just wanted to relax and enjoy the view, it provided a peaceful and private setting. Viva! made the trip easy and enjoyable. We were provided information as needed throughout the whole process and never had to worry.

    What a great vacation home! From the moment you enter the front gate you can tell this is a wonderful place. There is beautiful landscaping leading down to the house. Before you go in the front door, you need to walk out to the deck to see why this is called the Magic View Villa. You won't want to go inside other then to use the kitchen or go to bed. Everything was just perfect. We would stay here again!

    Robert & Val M from Charlotte, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The views from this villa are truly incredible---one of our favorite times of day was watching the sunset outside, sipping cocktails on the deck, while listening to our favorite music....inside, the amenities are superb...the villa comes complete with everything you would need for cooking in or preparing a picnic on a beach.....the beds and furniture were very comfortable--- and the master bath with its bamboo shower and rock interior belong in an issue of "Architectural Digest"! While a jeep rental is essential, the villa is located within easy reach of downtown Cruz Bay---we recommend "Magic" very highly...would come back again in a heartbeat!!

    • Manager Responded on 2/6/2013

      Thank you so much with your feedback from your recent stay at Magic View! The owners and past guests have experienced the same thing you mentioned and that's why it's called Magic because it is Magical!! Let us know when your ready to rebook!! The Viva Team!

    James S from Clovis, NM recommends this vacation rental

    I would recommend this property to others but here are areas for improvement of the property:

    Air Condition all buildings. This will especially help the kitchen to keep insects out and to decrease how hard the refrigerator has to work. Found a scorpion in the fridge on the last morning!

    Put proper door seals on all door frames. Too many insects and lizards get into the rooms and would aid in cooling too.

    Guest building has an open air shower. Advertise this or enclose it since mosquitos and lizards can enter through here. Also makes it impossible to cool building with AC.

    Roof leaks in Family room...3rd rafter over from the left as you look at the ocean. Roof also leaks in the laundry room.

    Kitchen needs a plastic pitcher for drinks/cool-aid.

    Front gate cannot be locked at night.

    Nicer TV in family room would be good for kids and cordless phones in other buildings could be added rather than the only phone being in the kitchen.

    Exterior door hinges in guest bedroom were coming out...one fell out while we were there.

    • Manager Responded on 4/9/2010

      July 2010 update: Temptress has been improved...and has had a name change to Magic View Villa Temptress has undergone great improvements since your visit: the roof leak has been repaired and new doors, fixtures, painting & landscaping added. The air-conditioning is operational in the bedrooms and living room area -they were serviced. In addition to the structural changes, all new furniture (inside and outside), original artwork, luxury linens, a flat screen television,DVD player and new stem ware were purchased. We invite you back to see the NEW TEMPTRESS and to enjoy all of the great amenities therein! The VIVA Team!

    Deb B from Burlington, VT recommends this vacation rental

    A precious little gem! Views are to die for. It's also clear that VIVA, as property managers, insure that the property is up to par. This property is ideal for 2 adults or a family of 4 with teenage children. The layout and the drop off from the decks would make this villa a poor choice for a family with younger children. For adults, however, it's awesome! This is not a fancy villa, but it's simplicity has a charm of it's own. We would definitely return. We would also recommend contacting VIVA if you are looking for a vacation villa to rent.

    • Manager Responded on 4/9/2010

      Thanks for your feedback. Since your visit, Tempress has undergone great improvements. There is a pull out sleeper sofa in the greatroom for an additional sleeping area and lots of original artwork, new furniture, bedding and luxury linens have all been added to improve the decor-the diamond in the rough has truly been revealed! Please return soon to see these fantastic changes first hand! The VIVA Team!

    Jeff W from Longmeadow, MA recommends this vacation rental

    Nice views but no place to sit. The house is broken into 4 buildings: MBR, kitchen, LR, BR2. There is nowhere to sit except on the beds. Furniture in the living room is really uncomfortable and there's no place to eat a meal. Also, this is a bad rental for families with young children. There are no railings and the 2 bedrooms are far away with the pool between them. Great for 2 couples. Also, the cheesy way the management company put "please tip the greeter" started our vacation on a bad tone.

    • Manager Responded on 3/27/2009

      Thank goodness for guest feedback! No VIVA guest should ever be told or even feel that any tip is ever expected - it is against our written greeter policies. We have already addressed this greeter violation thanks to your on-line feedback and further discussions with you! Other good news - the owner of Temptress is addressing the concern of comfortable seating and other improvements you've suggested and also sends you her heartfelt thanks. We are already looking forward to your next visit! 2010 update-new outside seating has been added to Temptress both off the greatroom and off the kitchen area as well. This additional outside seating offers comfort, style and the ability to lounge and full enjoy the views!
