“Gorgeous Home and Property”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I stayed at this lovey residence in January and could not have been any more pleased! The home completely exceeded my expectations- it was gorgeous- from the overall property design to the fabulous architectural details and decorating! The individual villas provided privacy and deluxe accommodations and the main house offered us all a lovely place to connect-whether inside the fabulously decorated home, out on one of the gorgeous patios or verandas flanked by amazing landscaping, by the poolside listening to the waterfall or in the crows nest enjoying the sunset. The views are serene and just fabulous-- like a magazine advertisement! The location was ideal, too, and we enjoyed dining out, shopping and going on adventures. We all had a marvelous time!

“Paradise”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in January 2014

This house was beyond beautiful. We felt like we were in Paradise. A tropical villa that is everything you would imagine. We traveled with two other couples and there were 4 gorgeous suites to choose from. We stayed in the Queen suite over the laundry room. The main house was lovely and very updated. We cooked in three nights. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and there was a grill which made dinner even better. We had a chef, recommended by the owners, come in one night and prepare an incredible 4 course meal for us. We had drinks every night from the crows nest and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The house manager was incredibly responsive - we only had one small issue with the gas supply to the grill and he was there in less than 30 minutes and we were up and running. He also met us at the ferry and was great in staying in contact to be sure everything was going well. We would go back again and in fact intend to. Las Brisas Caribe is an amazing venue to have a truly luxurious Carribean holiday!

“A Week in Paradise”
Reviewed 16 May 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation with friends and family at Las Brisas Caribe in mid-January. The villa is spacious and beautifully laid out - a great spot to enjoy Caribbean days and nights. During the day we visited lovely beaches, sailed, snorkeled and explored the island. Then we'd return to our luxurious accomodations.
We swam in the pool and had 'happy hours' on the Crow's Nest looking out on Cruz Bay at the magnificent sunsets. We cooked dinner on the grill or went out to one of the many first-rate restaurants on the island. We called it 'paradise'....a super week!

“Hugely disappointing! Beware --loud, smelly contruction site.”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We just returned from staying five days at in St. John at the Villa Brisas Caribe and I am sad to say that we had a terrible expereince. We booked the house thorugh Travel Keys, which was a huge mistake. Their service was awful. When we arrived at the house we were confronted by a giant house that is being constructed immediately in front of our villa. The contruction started every day including Saturday, from 6:30 am to 4:30 pm. It was band saws, jack hammers and loud music playing all day! When we called Travel Keys to complain, they said that they had mentioned that there could be contruction in the "arrival documents." I looked and it is totally generic boilerplate language that could apply to any rental and they don't give you those documents until you are about to leave and have already put down most of your money. As if the construction nosie was not enough, the house also reeked of moth balls because the local managager claimed that he was trying to deodorize it--as if anyone thinks that moth balls smell good! He said that the people before us had complained about a smell and then a couple days later a guy came to check the septic system because he said that the previous guests had complained of a sewage smell. And in fact, once the moth ball smell disappated we began to smell the sewage. Our stay was not relaxing or enjoyable--don't use Travel Keys or any other thrid party booking agent that claims to be a conceirge service and doesn't have a presence on the island.

Management Response

We are Tom and Cheryl , the owners of Las Brisas Caribe. We appreciate your feedback and are sorry that your experience at our villa did not meet your expectations. In conjunction with Suite St. John (our rental agency), we have been renting Las Brisas Caribe for over 10 years, serving hundreds of guests, and striving to provide them with the best possible St. John experience in a comfortable, well-maintained luxury villa. We, too, do not enjoy the construction across the street, but we recognize that our Maria Bluff neighborhood is very desirable for other luxury homes and that the construction of those homes is beyond our control. We and many of our returning guests deal with the noise by going to the beautiful beaches or enjoying other St. John activities during construction hours, and returning for the quiet sunsets from the Crow's Nest and dinners under the stars on the veranda. We also take great care of and perform meticulous and proactive maintenance on our villa, with bi-annual maintenance on the A/C and septic systems and weekly landscaping and site inspections. In fact, all our systems passed inspection with flying colors just four weeks prior to your visit. Upon receipt of your comments, we had our on-island manager and house systems manager reinspect the property for any issues, and this week the owner of Suite St. John will also inspect the property. And to be honest, in all our weeks of staying at Las Brisas Caribe over 10 years of ownership, we have never had your experiences. We and Suite St. John are serious about excellent and responsive customer service and maintaining Las Brisas Caribe as one of the premier villas on St. John. We invite you to contact us through Suite St. John to discuss your concerns and how we address them. Sincerely, Tom and Cheryl

“The Completely Gorgeous Perfect House”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This will be a short review. This house had everything. So many little amenities. Lots of space. Nice views. Gorgeous materials (stone, wood, surfaces). Lovely outdoor showers. Many, many ceiling fans. Huge kitchen, but still efficient for the cooks. Pool lovely. I've just come back from St. John, just the two of us this time, and we dreamed of Las Brisas despite the comforts of the Westin.

“Caribbean dream villa (resort) on Maria Bluff, St John, USVI”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Las Brisas Caribe provides stunning ocean views from a perch on Maria Bluff between Chocolate Hole harbor and Great Cruz Bay on the south side of St John. Three separate buildings house four fully air-conditioned suites with private baths and exhilarating outdoor showers that can accommodate a large family or multiple couples that may desire some privacy. The common areas are extensive and comfortable including multiple level terraces above the pool that offer a variety of sun and shade throughout the day. We found the poolside gazebo to be very comfortable and a good place from which to view the pool waterfall and fierce-looking but friendly iguanas. The kitchen is perfect for producing meals for a crowd at the long dining table and extensive counters. The large living room and formal dining area are surrounded on three sides by massive French doors that let the trade winds blow right through. At the end of the day do not miss the opportunity to watch the sun set over St Thomas from the crows nest on the roof of the main building. This very special and beautifully maintained property is two miles from the passenger ferry pier in Cruz Bay, 1.8 miles from the car ferry pier, 1.2 miles from the St John market and one mile to the entrance of the Westin St John Resort. The famous beaches in Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon and Maho bays in the National Park along the northwest and north shore are several miles away reached in a few minutes in one of the fun open-air a taxis or your rental car, but go early if you expect to park it. If you are considering a Caribbean vacation with friends or family and wish to go first class, you must consider Las Brisas Caribe.
