    Michelle T from Raleigh, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great experience renting Mayan Sky from Viva Villas. The entire process was very easy, communication was smooth in the days and weeks leading up to our trip, and the check in process was especially good. Our concierge picked us up from the ferry dock very late, as our flight from San Juan to St Thomas was delayed several hours. He was so incredibly kind and helpful, got us settled in to the house and gave us first-timers to the island some really valuable info that we used all week during our stay. I would just caution that Mayan Sky is a house for couples, not so much for families. It's a 1-bedroom main house with 2 separate suites.

    • Manager Responded on 6/25/2017

      Thank so much for taking the time to provide us and others with feedback on your recent stay. We agree, Mayan Sky isn't ideal for small children due to the exterior access bedrooms. (Please see the age restriction posted on the VIVA! webpage.) Its amazing and perfect for couples. We hope to see you back soon! Team VIVA!

    This was our first time renting a villa so we weren't sure what to expect, but everything was wonderful. The Mayan Sky villa exceeded our expectations and the Coral Bay area is a great location. It is very close to the north shore beaches. The trip to Cruz is about a 15-20 minute drive which is not bad at all - just watch out for the donkeys and goats!

    • Manager Responded on 4/3/2017

    We returned to Mayan Sky in March, 2017 for our fifth stay at this Villa. We found Mayan Sky to be just as lovely and relaxing as when we lasted stayed four years ago. The views are breathtaking, the villa is well equipped and conveniently located with easy access to north shore and south shore beaches. We are partial to the Coral Bay side of the island which is another good reason to stay at Mayan Sky.

    We have coming to St. John yearly since 2000 and have stayed at many different villas with several different property managers. Mayan Sky is definitely one of our favorite villas and team over at Viva is terrific, very professional and attentive. We highly recommend both!

    a guest from Greenwood, LA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed in this beautiful home for a week . The location is in a good location to visit all the north beaches and bays . It has 3 bedrooms all beautiful with tvs. The only bedroom that is connected to the living area and kitchen is the master bedroom . The other two bedrooms are not. They all have awesome views and balconys. If you have young children this would not be the house for you. It is perfect for couples or older teens. The staff at vivas could not have been any better. They are really so helpful and so accommodating . Our greeter Jessica was a gem. She went above and beyond to help us with everything. We would stay here again .

    Christine P from Barnegat, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed in Mayan Sky 6 years ago and loved our villa and Coral Bay so much, we repeated the booking. We have made 5 trips with our now teenagers, this being as special as every other trip. The air worked fine, the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable. The home was in excellent condition and really showed no wear and tear after 6 years we felt. Our only suggestion would be some more comfortable couches, seating in the living room area. The view and the grounds are spectacular. Our favorite villa thus far!

    Magabe was wonderful!! He was professional,helpful,engaging and thorough. Give him a nice raise!! Excellent ambassador for VivaVillas.

    • Manager Responded on 8/15/2016

      Thank you so much for your feedback on Mayan Sky! Viva and the owners do our best in keeping the property in very good condition. We will certainly forward your suggestions on the living room furniture to the owners. We do agree that Magabe is a wonderful greeter and that's why we have him. Thank you once again for choosing Viva Villas and Mayan Sky for your vacation and we look forward to your next visit! The Viva Team!

    a guest from Kingwood, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We recently returned from a week at Mayan Sky. Loved the location that was close to Maho/Leinster Bay and on the quieter side of the island, offering a beautiful view of Coral Bat and the islands beyond. The driveway was steep, but well paved and we had no problems getting up to our home in paradise each day.

    We enjoyed using the bedrooms on the main level, kids feel better about being close by. The bedrooms were well furnished with a/c dressers, large closets and comfortable beds. Each bedroom had a connected bath which was not air conditioned and allowed you to hear the fun sounds of the birds and coqui.

    We prepared many meals in the kitchen. We were happy with the cleanliness. One suggestion would be to provide more knives for chopping and Tupperware.

    Living room had seating for 4-5 and although I will say it could be more
    comfortable, I still fell asleep on it each night. Enjoyed reading the selection of local menus and activities that were provided in the villa.

    The pool was fun to take a dip in after a day on the beach. The outdoor shower was great to rinse off before tracking sand to the main level of the house. We enjoyed the patio area and outdoor dining table, although we spend more time indoors in the evening due to one daughter being sensitive to bug bites. We really never saw mosquitos at Mayan Sky, but were being cautious.

    Overall we enjoyed the property and would definitely stay at Mayan Sky in the future.

    • Manager Responded on 7/1/2016

      That is wonderful news! So glad you enjoyed your stay at Mayan Sky. We are in the process of doing inventory and will look into the knives and tupper ware. We certainly enjoyed having you as our guest and look forward to your next visit! The Viva Team!

    The property and the location of the property are outstanding! A few things that I would recommend addressing: 1) Air conditioner in master bed was not working well. It never got very cool. 2) The air conditioner in the 2nd bedroom on the 2nd floor drips on the head of the person sleeping in the bed. 3) The smoke detector continually "chirped" so we had to disconnect it. Other than those items, the property is awesome!

    We stayed at Mayan Sky for a week with two other couples. While we were there we also got married. It was all perfect. The view is amazing and the layout of the property is perfect for three couples. You have total privacy but can still meet by the pool or the kitchen area for a meal. We really have no reason to return to a hotel again, especially if we travel to the area again in the near future. It is truly PARADISE !!

    Mayan Sky was a beautiful villa with an exceptional view. Great location, close to Coral Bay and the North Shore beaches. Villa was easy to get to and we loved the well maintained driveway!! The property was clean upon check in and we loved that the kitchen had a good variety of pots pans etc to prepare our meals, as well as a great grill, which we used almost every night. We had a few minor issues with the beach chairs and the propane tank which were taken care of promptly after just one call to VIVA. We enjoyed the North Shore beaches, Maho and Frances Bay being our favorites. The Tourist Trap was a great place to stop by after the beach for a bite to eat the pulled pork and fish tacos to die for!! We spent a couple days just by the pool at Mayan, the view from the pool area is just incredible, and well appointed with comfortable lounge chairs and tables. We will definitely use VIVA again, a great management company,and would highly recommend Mayan. We will be back!!!

    We had a great stay. Property is beautiful and overall maintained very well. Would maybe suggest investing in some new beach chairs and snorkel gear . Current chairs are rusty and two are broken. Two very minor complaints as honestly everything was great. We stayed for 6 nights...every room has private bath and all rooms had fantastic views. I will say driving and the roads in St John are quite an experience in themselves. This house is about 20 minutes from Cruz Bay but only 10 minutes from best beaches on island!! And close to many hiking trails!! Would definitely stay here again.

    Everything from the greeter to the villa was perfect. We were met immediately and led to the villa which had a great view and was meticulously maintained. All the little extra touches like a beach bag and chairs, soaps and shampoo, welcome basket, etc added up to a vacation that will be very hard to beat. We highly recommend VIVA and a stay at Mayan Sky. The only issue we could see would have been if we had brought small children with us, the pool depth and really rough surface all around might be cause for concern. But it didn't affect us in the least. And how wonderful that the house is positioned so that the pool is shaded by mid afternoon! Relax in the pool until evening without getting burned! We loved it!

    This was the second stay at Mayan Sky for my husband and I. We were extremely happy with the villa, rental company (Viva Villas) and our time on the island each time. The villa has AMAZING views of Coral Bay, is quiet and private. It is about 7+ miles from Cruz Bay although we enjoy the ride - it's beautiful with great views along the way. Although it's only been the two of us for each stay, the villa would be great for up to three couples (good sized bedrooms and great room). We definitely hope to return again one day!

    The perfect house for 3 couples!
    Mayan Sky was even better than in the pictures, we absolutely loved it! The views are amazing, the house is beautiful, wonderful decor & landscaping!
    Each bedroom feels very private, but plenty of shared living space to hang out together.
    Coffee at the table outside in the sunshine (with the amazing view) every morning is something we will never forget.
    Absolutely loved the private open air showers attached to each of the bathrooms looking out into the beautiful surrounding forrest. Because of its location, the house was very safe & quiet perched up on Upper Carolina, and it had a great breeze. We rarely used the AC, just turned it on low during the day to cool off after the beach. The pool was perfect for taking a dip to cool down or lie out in the sun.
    Staying in Coral your on the “quieter” side of the island, but there is still so much to do!
    Your 5/10 minutes (depending on donkeys) to Rams Head/Salt Pond Bay, Maho Bay and Waterlemon Cay etc. All amazingly beautiful & great snorkeling. You must go to Skinny Legs! Eat great food, shop and grab a Key Lime Colada (you wont regret it). Across the street is
    Indigo Grill (a must try). Check out an adorable place next door on the second floor called Island Muse, all locally made jewelry, gifts & art!
    Cruz Bay (20 minutes) has many restaurants! We loved Rhumb Lines and Burger Bar! Tons more great shopping to do there! On our Anniversary we went to ZoZos (just outside Cruz) located at Caneel Bay Resort. This is a very special place with wonderful service, we had an amazing dinner, great memories. Don’t miss Honeymoon Beach, right next to Caneel, its open to the public, beach is spectacular and there is a little shop and snack/bev shack within walking distance! We got to see some Sea Turtles while snorkeling here, something I had done before, but always the highlight of my trip, so cool!
    St John is a favorite of mine and I already miss being at Mayan Sky

    This was our fifth trip to STJ, but first time staying in Coral Bay. We stayed at Mayan Sky for 7 days in January. It was a great location on Upper Carolina, well maintained villa with sweeping views of Coral Bay. Most of the screens on the doors did need some maintenance because they were coming loose from the frames, but it wasn't a big issue and I'd stay at Mayan Sky again. This was the second time we've used Viva and they are great to work with, very professional and communicate very well. Shanna at Blue Sky did our provisions again and she is always a delight to work with and would highly recommend her. I can't wait to return to this wonderful island.

    Stayed here for 10 days with our 3 teenagers. LOVED this house! Left the house open, no a/c needed. Has to be one of THE best views of Coral Bay! Open air shower is fantastic! Surprise visit from some of the local donkeys our second night there. Careful coming up the drive at night. Easy access to town and all of the beaches. Loved the pool. The girls at Viva and Varlack Rentals were wonderful to deal with. We got delayed coming in and they took care of everything we needed. Also, recommend Blue Sky Concierge for grocery delivery before you arrive. Excellent service all the way around. We will definitely use all of their services again.

    After visiting STJ for the ninth time, we decided we wanted to stay on the Coral side. This is the first time we used ViVA Villas and they were excellent. Mayan Sky was beautiful. The villa met all are needs. Our two children in the the downstairs room which is accessed by an external staircase. It was like they had their own little apartment (14 and 11 yrs old). The view of Coral Bay is awesome and the villa was a five minute drive to Coral. It was a 6 minute ride to Maho Beach.

    We stayed here with 2 other couples and we all had a great time. Each bedroom had more than enough privacy and the main areas of the house were spacious enough to keep us from feeling like we were on top of eachother. The decor was lovely and the view was amazing! The only thing we noticed is that the door screens may need to be replaced soon. :) My husband and I have stayed on the Island before and this home was far better than the last one we stayed at. We would definitely rent this location or at least from Viva again! Thanks so much!

    We loved staying at Mayan Sky. It was me (the mom) and 3 teenagers and an 8 year old. Everyone had their own room -- and we could've EASILY fit another 6 people. There's lots of space for air beds on the floor. Each bedroom has a private bath. This is a spectacular property with gorgeous views, landscaping, deck/patios, the works. The only complaints were the freezer didn't work properly (but we didn't bother to call VIVA) and the pool was pretty chilly -- didn't use it much. Every room is a grand room--we'd stay here again for sure.

    • Manager Responded on 4/9/2014

      Thank you so much for your feedback! We wish you had called us and let us know of the freezer as we would have work on your behalf and taken care of right away.

    We were a group of 3 couples, siblings and our significant others. We loved the house and it's breezy, relaxing vibe. All three bedrooms afforded total privacy and comfort including en suite bathrooms! Loved the furnishings and decor throughout and the kitchen was well-stocked, well equipped, and roomy.
    Our only issue was that the pool needed cleaning when we arrived but that was remedied in reasonable time by management.
    We loved it!

    Connie A from Ft. Mitchell, KY recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first-time stay in the Coral Bay area, and we were pleasantly surprised how much more relaxing the area was. In the past, we have stayed in the Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole areas. We loved not hearing heavy truck traffic, barking dogs, and crowing roosters. Rather we heard the local donkeys braying a few times in the early morning.

    Mayan Sky was well appointed with quality furnishings, kitchen ware, and three separate ensuite bedrooms. This was great for our party of 3 adult couples. The view from Mayan Sky was "five star!"

    The pool was small, but the view from the pool made up for that.

    From the standpoint of beaching, we enjoyed the convenience of reaching our favorite North Shore beaches. Also, we experienced some new hikes in the area.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the restaurants in the Coral Bay area. They served delicious seafood with generous portions. In fact, our opinion is these establishments were better than their Cruz Bay counterparts. (We ate at Aqua Bistro two times and Shipwrecked.)

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2014

      Thank you so much, your feedback is very important to us! We are so pleased to hear that you loved your stay at Mayan Sky and loved the Coral Bay area. Mayan Sky is a very unique villa and I totally agree with you that this area is more laid back and you are closer to the beaches on that end. The restaurants are great! We certainly hope that you will return to St. John and this lovely villa! The Viva Team!

    Vickie W from Villa Hills, KY recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I came to St. John to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We celebrated our honeymoon as well on St. John and said we would always go back. Mayan Sky exceeded our expectations. We choose to stay away from the Cruz Bay area and so the quieter side of Coral Bay area was a great decision.
    Our stay was very comfortable since there was plenty of room, beautiful view looking out over Coral bay, private, and was very clean. This villa would be perfect for three couples where each couple would have total privacy or also perfect for a large family. The pool was clean and refreshing and villa came equipe with everything you needed to cook with to beach chairs, towels, and beach bag for beach days. We would definitely rent this villa again. To clarify the 4 in general condition: ice maker was not working upon our arrival and was brought to their attention. VIVA! was quick to respond and had it working as soon as they could. Bath towels smelled musty/moldy and VIVA! made aware. They ran a refresh cycle on front loader washer; yet towels still smelled. We just think the washer is the problem and a more thorough cleaning/sanitizing would help; throw the towels out and start over with new.
    Overall, we were very happy. Our greeter was prompt and very thorough to give us island info to tour of villa. The blue info binder in the Villa was our lifeline to the island. VIVA! recommended Cloud9 for a sailing experience and we truley had a wonderful time. Greeter recommended Auqua Bistro in Coral Bay which ended up being our favorite place to eat on the island.
    You will not be disappointed!

    Susan B from Carrboro, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Mayan Sky has a beautiful location overlooking Coral Bay. The house was spotless and VIVA's staff and housekeeping were wonderful. The only down side of this house was the pool. It is not heated, so most of the time it just was not warm enough to use for any extended length of time, and definitely not at night. Also, it has a uniform depth of approximately 5 feet, six inches, so I could not stand in the pool as the water was over my head. Several mornings we found dead frogs in the pool. I have not encountered this in my other stays at places in St. John with pools, and we suspected it might be due to the heavy landscaping around the pool. I would recommend this house but would make sure it was clear about the limitations of the pool and the frogs. Maybe a better rental for people who do not really intend to use the pool.

    • Manager Responded on 12/15/2010

      Thank You so much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The pool is a uniform depth we agree... we've never experienced frogs at Mayan Sky's pool before and will address this issue immediately. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to improve our services at Mayan Sky! Update: We have not been able to find any frogs in the pool at Mayan Sky...hopefully this was a one time event but we will keep an eye out for those little hoppers!

    We had a great stay at Mayan Sky. The location near Coral Bay was perfect. The villa was very comfortable and had a beautiful view of Coral Bay. There was one downside. The pool pump was not working at all during our stay. Once it was fixed it knocked out the electricity for the kitchen including the refrigerator. The propoerty manager was able to care of the electrical issues except for the pool. I am sure these problems will be fixed in the near future if they have not already been fixed. We would be happy to stay at Mayan Sky again.

    Thanks you so much for a wonderful week at Mayan Sky. The house was just fabulous! We made last minute reservations and the Viva staff was great to make sure our last minute trip was arranged. Our greeter, Brenda, was wonderful. Since our flight to St. Thomas was delayed, we didn't arrive until late. She was kind enough to go to the car rental agency and pick up our car keys for us earlier that day, so that we could still use our car that night. The house itself was wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. The welcoming basket of goodies was great as we were really hungry when we arrived. One thing that any renter should be aware of is that only the master bedroom is attached to the main living space, so the other 2 bedrooms are separate (one is ourside downstairs and the other is across a small veranda). This means that you have to lock the bedroom doors when you go to bed. Having 2 small children, I didn't feel comfortable with them in a locked room away from me where they couldn't come get me if they needed to and I wouldn't be able to hear them from the master bedroom. So we all bunked together in the master bedroom. The pool was wonderful and great for a morning dip in the pool. The location was perfect - away from Cruz Bay, but close enough that it was an easy drive. Coral Bay was very convenient as were most of the north shore beaches. Lastly, our flight got cancelled and so we couldn't leave for another day (no tears were shed!). Viva was wonderful in letting us stay for another night. Thanks again for a most memorable vacation! We would highly recommend Viva and Mayan Sky to anyone interested in coming to St. John.

    This was a great Villa and if I travel to St. John with three couples, I will always look for it first!

    Rob & Sharon M from Boylston, MA recommends this vacation rental

    We just wanted to make sure that Sherylinne is recognized for her incredibly hard work. We arrived on St. John and had rented another villa with another property rental company. Upon booking, we were told the property was 'private' which was our primary criteria. Much to our chagrin, we arrived at the villa and it was far from private. It was a nightmare. We immediately called VIVA on that Saturday afternoon. Although she was getting ready to shut down the office for the weekend, Sherylinn spent lots of time on the phone with us recommending some available properties that would suit our tastes. She even returned our calls on Saturday evening, after hours. The next day, we met her at Mayan Sky and we checked in to the paradise she promised. I must note that she did this on her husband's birthday to boot and went out of her way to make sure that our vacation was rescued by getting us into Mayan Sky starting on Sunday. Sherylinn should be commended! Please give her a promotion or a raise!! She's the type of employee that should be held on to. Thanks to her hospitality, we will ALWAYS use VIVA (this was our 4th trip to St. John) in the future AND we will recommend VIVA to our friends who know how picky we are about accommodations and customer service. Give Sherylinn our best and thank her again for her incredible hospitality and for saving our vacation!!!!

    The vacation, staff and rental were above expectation... and this was our 4th trip as a family so, we had a frame of reference. We would definitely choose Viva again over other rental companies we've used in prior trips.

    Thank you for our exquisite week ! St. John never dissappoints ! The Purdon family

    a guest from Millington, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    Overall Mayan Sky was wonderful!!! The location, view and property itself were beautiful.

    Pros: Almost everything.
    Cons(and not major at all):

    * Screens opening in bathroom shower - For safety reasons it would have been nice to have a window to close and lock for safety and to keep the air conditioning in. Although, it was wonderful taking a shower with an open window though!!!

    *Video library was very limited. It shouldn't even be advertised in the villas description.

    *Television channels - very basic TV. Our daughter wanted to watch Disney and Nick during the evening. I missed not checking on The Weather Channel for local weather.

    * Layout - good for three couples. Our daughter slept with me in the master bedroom and my husband slept across the way in the other upstairs bedroom. Otherwise she would have been totally separated from us.

      Thanks so much for your feedback. The owners have since increased the volume of videos available to renters and have a selection that includes something for adults and children. Additional amenities at Mayan Sky include wireless internet, and board games. The bathroom windows are quite tropical in design and adds character to the villa-we see that you enjoyed it! We hope you return to Mayan Sky soon! The VIVA Team
