“Amorosa is the pits!”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017
1
person found this review helpful

After staying at Amorosa for a week, I think I should advise future potential renters NOT to rent this home unless they see it in person, as we feel that the description from management is extremely deceptive and inaccurate. The pictures were obviously taken years ago. The owners emergency man told us that the home has been for sale for nine years,and he only gets a chance to remedy problems that the management company can’t handle. He said that the management company handles everything else, and does not call him for anything as they do not like to spend money (which is apparent wherever you look). The house is not beachside,no walk to the beach. The house is in dire need of updating and repair.Here is just a sample of the problems that we noticed with the house Filthy although housekeeping was leaving when we arrived we still found items from other renters Most screens have holes/patches where they have attempted to repair Rugs in master bedroom are shredding The monogramed beach towels are shredding –the captain of the dive boat we rented kept making jokes about our towels and the “classy” place we must be staying at Patio dining set – 3 chairs are broken, you can’t sit back Light fixtures throughout the property are broken and dirty with lights missing Exposed wires in electrical box at the front entrance Paint splashed all over the bedroom doors in Master bedroom Rubber seals on some doors are pulled out or hanging Many windows need replacement MAJOR ANT PROBLEM Steps near hammock are washed out and the pergola above is rotting with pieces that have fallen, the area around the hammock has not been cleaned or weeded in ages Light pole by the pool area is falling apart, broken light and leaning terribly, lounge area by this pole has obviously been overlooked in the cleaning process for some time, would not sit on the furniture. This is just a list off the top of my head At one time this house must have been magnificent, but unfortunately it has not been maintained and through our experience with management, they do not seem to care. The owner of the home is aware of the issues. He did offer to “buy a few hundred dollar gift certificate” to a restaurant, we thanked him but felt that we should advise future potential renters of the conditions instead. When we go on a family vacation, we expect to stay at a place that is at least as nice if not nicer than our own home. We had been planning this vacation for over a year and were really looking forward to it. Our visit to St. John was truly enjoyable, our stay at Amorosa was the pits.

Management Response
9 Nov 2017
We are always as humble and respectful as possible with our guests. This review is very difficult to read though because most of it is not true and all of it is exaggerated beyond anything reasonable. I spoke to these guests several times during their stay, they called our managers multiple times per day (who were very responsive) and our maintenance man went out many times, mostly for odd reasons. We have a very close and long-term relationship with our maintenance man and spend money right away when things come up. One complaint, however, was about ants on an "outdoor" terrace. Another complaint was that the artwork in the house was "outdated" (it's the same artwork as shown in the photos). They got the idea that Peter Bay Beach was closed just embedded in their mind, which was definitely not the case and we tried several times explaining this. I have no idea where they got the idea that the house is beachfront. It is in walking distance, not beach front. To top it all off, our property manager received a butt-dial voice message from the guests where we heard them laughing and saying how they would complain about everything possible until they got the trip for free. There are indeed about half a dozen small screen patches, but we are replacing all of the screens right now. When they say things like "Paint splashed all over the bedroom doors in Master bedroom" I have to assume that they are talking about a small speck somewhere because I have never seen what they are referring to and I believe that applies to the other comments also.

I don't like writing this sort of thing in response to a guest. I'd rather be completely accommodating, but the review is just so unfair that I have to defend the house and our wonderful staff. Thank you for reading!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Amorosa was everything we hoped for and more! From the moment we arrived on St John the stage was set, which started with a Rep greeting us at the ferry and guiding us right to the villa.

Amorosa is a stunning property in the perfect location. The architecture and furnishings are first rate, the layout is great for both privacy of each guest as well as group time, and the views are out of this world. 10 minutes to downtown, 5 minutes to world class beaches, and a place you don't want to leave! St John itself is such a great island, with so much you can do.

Highly recommend this property, we will return for sure!

“Beautiful Villa - Gorgeous Views”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We were 2 families visiting St. John for spring break week. Amarosa was just as the pictures showed - gorgeous view, well maintained, beautiful grounds. We have no complaints. It was perfect for our week vacation. The location is the best on the island, close to all the North Shore beaches yet conveniently close to town. St. John is a magical place and the villa takes full advantage of its surroundings. We are already dreaming up ways to make a return trip some day!

“Perfect Escape!”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Amorosa has the top location on St John. You are just minutes away from all of the North Shore beaches including our favorite, Cinnamon Bay. The views are good with BVI islands in the background and the gorgeous turquoise waters to watch sailboats pass by. You are also a quick drive to Cruz Bay for dining and provisions. The home is equipped very well with everything you need to enjoy a week or more. This is the 4th villa we have rented on STJ and our favorite.

“Truly Amazing! Pure Paradise!”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in September 2015

This villa is simply the best! Our family has stayed here before and we come back each time for the beautiful views, convenient location and incredible amenities. We were able to walk to Trunk Bay with no problem and drive into town many nights to enjoy the nightlife. But the best part was just spending time there, enjoying the pool and outside barbecue and spending time with family and making new memories.

“FABULOUS!”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Amorosa was absolutely fabulous! It's close to two amazing beaches... Trunk and Cinnamon. My family was able to walk to both, which was a HUGE deal for us because we can't all fit in one car. The view from the pool deck and all of the rooms is awesome. We loved how each room had it's own outside sitting area, but there was also plenty of space for us all to be together. The kitchen was everything that we needed and more. The wine tasting room was the icing on the cake. We will definitely be recommending this to others and will be back the next time we visit St. John!

This is my third trip to St John. I had inquired with the owner specifically about the view and the possibility of walking to a beach, which for me is what my winter vacation is all about. There are 3 high bedrooms here and the view may be obstructed from some of them by palm trees but it is still first rate and way outranks what I've been looking at for the last 3 months!! It was the ability to walk to the beach that made this location the best. My husband does all the driving and I hate to have to depend on him totally for beach visits. At Amorosa, you can easily walk to Peter Bay Beach. But you can also (not quite as easily but doable) walk to Trunk and Cinnamon. Trunk has 3 dangerous hairpin turns and with the roads so narrow, I chose Cinnamon Beach. Early almost every am I took my coffee down the road (careful of traffic but nothing much before 8) and walked the whole length of Cinnamon beach. Id say 10 minutes down, 20 minutes on the beach and 15 minutes back because it's a tad more uphill. My husband slept in and I got my 2+ mile walk in with no Jeep necessary. Going higher up for a world class view would have made this hike impossible. Beautiful house, great view and walking access made this my best vacation yet! Hoping for a repeat.
