    a guest from Wilmette, IL recommends this vacation rental

    This was our family's 5th trip to St. John and second time renting in the Coral Bay area. Heaven's Gate has an absolutely breathtaking view of Peter Island, Hurricane Hole, and some of the BVI. The view, however, comes with a price: strong winds from the east, which forced us to close doors, secure towels, and dine inside despite the marvelous outdoor eating areas the owners have furnished.
    The house itself is well designed, offering privacy, plenty of outdoor space, a well-oriented pool, and lovely landscaping done by Josephine, the owner. She and her wonderful son, Hugo, also provided delicious organic produce from their farm. We felt very welcome upon arrival.
    Unlike the other homes we have rented, Heaven's Gate was more sparsely supplied and had more repair needs. Simple examples include no beach towels (there were bath towels of a different color that were intended for beach use; we ended up purchasing beach towels and donating them to the home); leaky kitchen faucet and refrigerator; broken window cranks; and lack of serving dishes. No single item was a deal-breaker or even enough to merit calling the owners. This was simply a different experience from what we had had in previous rentals.
    Overall, Heaven's Gate is a lovely, private home for a larger family or group. The strong breeze keeps the place cool and less buggy than other locations. If that is important to you, then Heaven's Gate is a good fit.

      Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your recent Heaven’s Gate stay. We’re delighted that the views, location, gardens, friendliness of the property managers/owners and special touches like organic produce provided to you made your experience ‘heavenly’. We’re sorry to learn that there are a few more tweaks needed at the villa to make it 100% exceptional (i.e. actual beach towels instead of regular towels, a leak in a faucet, broken window cranks and serving dishes,etc.). We will be sharing your comments/feedback with the owners and property managers to ensure that you’re next visit is 100% satisfactory. THE VIVA TEAM
