    We loved our stay at Luminaria! We are so sad to be back home in the cold New England weather. The house is beautiful. There is ample space upstairs plus two full bedrooms with bathrooms downstairs. The kitchen is huge and is fairly stocked with all the necessary kitchen gadgets. We loved the pool and the Jacuzzi. It is very close to all of the popular beaches!

    a guest from Evergreen, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our villa! Our greeter was at the ferry dock to meet us as promised, helped us get our rental car and lead us to the villa. Gave us a quick tour of the home and details and briefed us on the local maps. The villa was ready for our arrival, being cooled and welcoming. The property is located with a wonderful view,but its only disadvantage to this location is a 25 minute drive into cruz bay, for breakfast, shopping, beaches and dining. Knowing this, we were hesitant to go out at night and have drinks as the drive back is dark, steep and winding, and can be confusing until you know your way. Coral Bay is only about 5 minutes away, closer, but with fewer options. The girls at the management company were extremely helpful! A few days in, we didn't have hot water and within hours they had the heating element replaced and working by the time we returned that day. We would recommend Villa Luminaria!

    Carol T from Bellville, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Once again we had an amazing time. It is just so hard to leave St. calls to you every day..."come back..come back!" Too many beautiful beaches, so little time! Excellent snorkeling (we love renting our gear from Crabby's aka Doug at Corral Bay); had a great excursion by Ocean Runner over to Yost Van Dyke, BVI (Thank You Captain Jay and Morgan!); we hiked and saw many ruins; enjoyed amazing meals esp. at Agua Bistro (Ponzu Tuna on Fridays) and High Tide for breakfast in Cruz Bay. Our beautiful Villa Luminaria was perfect for our family of six...truly a peaceful, relaxing vacation we will never forget! And we dearly love the people of St happy, helpful, and friendly! SO very sad to leave! But we will return!
    Thank You Christine and Charmaine, and VIVA Villas!

    Gary L from Eagan, MN recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed in nearly a dozen different villas over the years, and Luminaria is one of the best. The 270 degree views from the decks are fantastic! The kitchen was well appointed, the common areas were spacious, WiFi worked well (on the main level), the coolers, beach chairs and towels were in good shape, bedrooms and bathrooms were great, the pool was nice for a day away from the beach, and the icemakers and everthing else worked! The drive up was all paved, with a few switchbacks and donkeys on the way. The turn into the driveway was tight, but getting to Luminaria was actually fairly easy as far as St. John villas go, and driving in St. John is part of the fun every year! The proximity to the north shore beaches was great - about 15 minutes to Cinnamon Bay. We hit Coral Bay favorites Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro, and Shipwreck Landing, and also the new Indigo Grill, which was a nice addition to Coral Bay. Luminaria is a superior option for a St. John villa!

    Luminaria is a home that enlightens you. The views are spectacular from every window. The appointments from this artist owned home are incredible. The pool is protected so that it is warm enough to enjoy - and oh how fun it is to swim with the dolphins under the waterfall. The location is superior to enable you to get to the beaches to snorkel the pristine waters. The owner provides so many to amenities to cook with. Where else could you find a rental kitchen with a food processor and a salad spinner. If you choose, you can eat out as there are several options in Coral Bay. Management is definitely there to serve you. You can count on Christine and Sherrolyn to care for you and for Joe to be at your doorstep if there is a problem. Out of a 1-5, we would give Luminaria and VIVA a 10!

Kitchen utensil stock was very nice too. GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

    I must say that every year you further validate my decision to book our vacations through VIVA. The arrival and move in were flawless and the house was in wonderful shape. As a family that has traveled now to St John 5 times, we can't understand why anyone would go out on their own to book a "by Owner" the staff and response team you have in place, all living on island, ensures that every detail is looked after and any problems are addressed immediately. Literally in 5-10 minutes your man arrived to reset the water pump when we noticed the water was off on day 5. We can't wait to come back and see you again, maybe twice next year? Great Job (again) Christine, Joe, and Bear.

    This is the second time we've rented this villa. The view here is simply anazing. The design, construction and furnishings of the home were top of the line. The pool was great. Not heated, but comfortable for swimming. The driveway was a little scary at first, but we got used to it. Just take your time. 8 minutes from Maho Bay, we think the best beach on the island. It was hard to leave after a week, but we plan on returning.

    a guest from Lebanon, PA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family recently spent our time on Saint John in the villa Luminaria. We had a fantastic time, in part because of the beautiful home and the service of VIVA. We loved the convenience of the beach towels, beach bags, beach chairs, multiple size coolers, etc. The pool and hot tub were a great way to relax after spending the day at the beach. And any time was great to sit and enjoy the beautiful view of Coral Bay. The house had a fully-stocked kitchen and plenty of well thought out touches. Many people clearly spent a good deal of time organizing the house and the documentation to ensure guests would be able to fully enjoy the home. I would certainly recommend staying at Luminaria as well as booking with VIVA. We hope to return to Saint John again soon.

    a guest from New York, NY recommends this vacation rental

    Luminaria has some of the most amazing views of Tortola and Coral Bay. Our family had a wonderful time staying here from Christmas to New Year's. The house had plenty of fans and when all doors were opened, the breeze was relaxing. All the rooms have air conditioning. The location was a bit far from Cruz Bay where all the restaurants, shops, grocery stores where. Not much in Coral Bay. With the addition of windy steep roads, it made it a bit less appealing to leave for dinner. But we did eat out enough and also cooked a lot. The driveway was a challenge since it was sooo steep. But guess that's why the house had such amazing views. We didn't use the pool much since it wasn't heated but we wanted to visit all the local beaches anyway.

    • Manager Responded on 1/14/2014

      Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at Luminaria! We do agree with you that the views are amazing. St. John itself is a hilly island with a lot of winding roads, however after a day or two it becomes easier. Thank you once again and we look forward your return! The Viva Team!

    Sandy W from Smithfield, RI recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the house and would definitely recommend it as well as all the folks @ Viva, they were awesome. We came in a day late due to hurricane, but we still had a great time. I love Upper Carolina area and have stayed in that area before. The only issue
    (and not a big one) was that both the greeter and maintenance noted we didn't have enough toilet paper, but no one came back with any, no big deal, we just went out and bought more.

    We had a great week at Luminaria, high up Upper Carolina Road looking over Coral Bay and across to the BVI. Luminaria has stunning views and is a very well equipped and cared for villa. Great kitchen, great layout, wonderful hot tub and pool and deck area,
    beautifully landscaped. Viva Villas was great--very organized and helpful. St. John Car Rental was also excellent. A fantastic and memorable vacation!

    I thought I scanned and e-mail my survey, nontheless I can send another survey. I had an amazing time on my honeymoon. Lumaria was beautiful and it was so fun to be there, as well as relaxing, with an amazing view. St. John is also beautiful and the restaurants are amazing. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental, and I wanted to thank you so much for an amazing time. Hope to come back soon.

    Robert W from Raleigh, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Very impressive location/view. Lots of space and furniture. Kitchen was well equipped and large. No warning that driveway is very steep and you have to drive a block past it and make a u-turn in order to drive up. Most issues were resolved quickly by Viva Villas. Pool lights never worked and attempts to repair it failed. It took a while to get acclimated to the lack of AC in the living/dining areas.

    • Manager Responded on 6/15/2011

      Thanks so much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The driveway is steep. We recommend to our guests to make the U-turn to enter the driveway for two reasons: primarily so that they can see the driveway before attempt and secondly because its an easier and more gradual approach to the driveway-however, you can go up head on. You are correct, Luminaria only has a/c in the bedrooms. It als has several ceiling fans throughout and screened doors to keep the air circulating throughout. The VIVA Team

    Patrick & Shari M from China, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed 8 wonderful days in St. John and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luminaria Villa. The villa was large and clean, and the views were incredible!
    We all enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and the spaciousness of the villa. My wife liked having the kids bedrooms accessible by inside stairs, under the same roof. The villa is tastefully decorated and the landscaping lush and colorful with flowering plants and trees all around. The location was very private (clothing optional) and convenient to Coral Bay and the north shore beaches. The villa management company was very responsive brining us a full propane tank for the grill when ours ran out after hours. I wouldn't hesitate staying at Luminaria again and would recomend it to anyone travelling to St. John and staying at the Coral Bay side of the island.

    As always, we greatly enjoyed our stay on Saint John thanks to Viva. Our greeter, Corine, was helpful, warm, and welcoming. We can't wait to see her again next year. We had an atypical requests (to order a ppv boxing match at the house) and VIVA did everything they could to make it happen. When we ran into troubles the night of the fight, sherrolyn was extremely helpful on the emergency line, and while things did not work out, VIVA did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Luminaria was beautiful and our mid-week maid was a sweetheart. Thanks for all of your help!

    Sincerely,
    Spencer

    over to Luminaria and were more than pleasantly surprised! What a beautiful home with spectacular views!! We really can't say enough about Viva rentals. The employees were so helpful and friendly, and Corine, especially, made the vacation just that much better. She was so easy to talk to and really seemed to want to make sure our stay was a great one. Thanks, Viva, for helping to make the week a wonderful, memorable one. Your friendliness and professionalism makes you a company we will strongly recommend to others.

    Andrea B from NEW Foundland, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    This was our fourth trip to St. John and by far the most relaxing and enjoyable. What a wonderful stay we had in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the basket of treats left for us, the fresh flowers on the table and the other little touches that made us feel at home. We loved the different pieces of pottery and beautiful artwork . We especially enjoyed the wildlife and diversity that surrounded us. We searched for hermit crabs in the dark with flashlights and counted the 50+ bats as they emerged at dusk as we sat in the hot tub drinking banana smoothies and rum punch. No wonder we didn’t have any problems with bugs! The kids enjoyed the donkeys, goats, lizards, frogs, and mongoose that were easy to find if you took the time to look. We had a delightful boat ride to the BVI with Captain Patrick of the Nauti Nymph. He was a wealth of knowledge and we all had a great day of snorkeling and exploring. Some of our favorite restaurants were Morgan’s Mango, Aqua Bistro and Skinny Legs. Miss Lucy’s is just not the same without Miss Lucy. We explored new beaches and found Little Lameshur Bay and Vie’s Beach to be some of our favorites. We look forward to coming back and staying at Luminaria in the near future. Truly a phenomenal vacation.
