“Most Beautiful and Refreshing”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in August 2014

I spent one of the happiest weeks of my life, with my eldest daughter and her husband at Adante by the Sea. There is so much that I enjoyed at Adante, excellent accommodations, breath taking views, and very friendly people. I enjoyed the most beautiful nights, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves and the cool breeze from the sea. I enjoyed sitting on the upper deck with the beautiful potted plants, and gazing at the blue sea and sky. The sunrise, as it appears between sea and sky is most marvelous. I had great fun and enjoyment in the swimming pool and the whirlpool. I love being at Andante and I am looking forward to my next visit.

“Spacious and Private”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is a great house for groups of family and/or friends. I had my privacy when I needed it and great gathering spaces for companionship and conversation. A fabulous kitchen (although I didn't cook much) , living room, indoor and outdoor dining rooms are marvelous for socializing or just relaxing. There is another deck on the lower level that has a hammock and gets wonderful warm breezes from the bay. I would lounge there after a swim with a book and a drink. Or go down to the bay and sit with my chair in the gentle surf to watch the sunset. I love using the private outdoor shower to clean and cool off. St. John has so many wonderful places to go to that are either totally unspoiled or commercial. For me it was a place to relax and Andante was the perfect place to do it.

Thanks so much for your kind words. It is great to hear that you were able to enjoy Andante exactly as we have designed, getting seclusion and privacy when you wanted it; and quality time with loved ones when you desired - all surrounded by the sights and sounds of the ocean and the incredible nature of Sr. John. We hope you will return! Marilyn & Rich

It a perfect vacation!! The villa was beyond perfect, with the room, the view, and the amenities. After a day of snorkling, hiking, or shopping, what better way to end the day, than a cold beverage on the porch overlooking the ocean, or lounging by the pool. It was so good!!!! Spent the evenings listening to the waves coming ashore, and watching the sun set. Six star recommendation!!

“Living the Dream of unwinding in paradise!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in March 2014

What a great spot! After almost a year of extended travel for work, we were looking for just the right place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beauty of St. John. Andante by the Sea fulfilled all those desires and more! The view off the decks was outstanding, the ambience around you just saying "relax". Being there brought such a feeling of contentment and renewal. As much fun as it is exploring the area, there was just as much joy in simply " hanging " at Andante, chilling by the pool, listening to the deck stereo and catching sun and warm breezes. whether it was the morning cup of coffee to start your day, or your favorite cocktail watching the cruise ships head out for the night, each day was a fun experience. We definitely hope we can do this again!

We want Andante to allow your senses to fully come alive to the magnificent beauty that is St. John.

“Incredible vacation experience!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful time during our vacation at Andante. The house is beautiful, the view of the ocean is amazing, and the sunsets are outstanding. The pool is private enough for a comfortable swim, and the exposure to the sun is wonderful. The rooms are spacious, and the house is well kept. The amenities make the villa superior to staying at a hotel.

“A Beautiful Sanctuary!”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We had the most relaxing and healing vacation at Andante. The house is so beautiful and peaceful! The abundance of windows allow for spectacular views from inside the house. The outdoor deck spaces offered even more magnificent ocean views. We enjoyed both phenomenal sunrises and sunsets, as well as beautiful moon viewings. The sounds of the ocean waves was so calming. At night, the outdoor tree frog sounds coupled with the ocean waves creates a peaceful atmosphere. All the rooms are very spacious, clean and decorated in a simple, holistic manner. I value that clean/renewable energy is used to power the house and that Andante is consciousness about water conservation and quality. We enjoyed doing yoga on the spacious decks, especially the downstairs shaded deck with a cool and constant breeze. The kitchen is stocked with all cooking supplies. We were able to cook great meals and ate at the outside table in the evening everynight. I have traveled to many beautiful places, but none have been as high-quality and beautiful as Andante. Andante is a sacred space! We are returning again this year. It is a vacation sanctuary.

“Relaxing in every way”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our family (2 adults and 20-something sons) stayed at Andante over the holiday season and thoroughly enjoyed the views, the setting, and the accommodations. It is perched on Hart Bay, with sea views capturing both the sunrises and sunsets -- spectacular. You want for nothing here -- the owners have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, relaxing and memorable. The on-the-island managers were most helpful in suggesting restaurants, activities and even making reservations. Thanks to all for a wonderful start to the New Year. We hope to be back to this lovely island and great vacation home.
