We have just returned from an amazing week on St John after staying in this beautiful villa.
Amorosa met and exceeded all of our expectations. Interior of the villa is beautiful but also very functional. The outside is great, lots of space to lounge and enjoy the view.
And the view - wow - every day it took my breath away. Looking across Cinnamon Bay to the BVI continuously draws your eyes.
The location is perfect as well - a few minutes to both Trunk and Cinnamon Bay by car. Cruz bay is only 10 Minutes away.
And last but least - the owners was awesome - we had a couple of very minor issues and they were brilliant. I hope we can go back another day.
St John, is waiting for you. Amarosa is our favorite place to stay. Always clean, attentive staff, perfect location to beaches, Cruz Bay and the views to die for. The Villa is perfect, conformable, with ever modern convenience. We can't wait to get back to Amarosa next January. The Daly's have been wonderful to us every year we have stayed at one of their Villa's.
It was all that was promised and more. Arrived late due to flight delays, lights all on. Food had been set out for us, meat marinating in the fridge, with side dishes fully prepared.
It is located on a perfect part of the island so you have easy access to all beaches. Walk to beach was easy and quick (once you did the path).
Amazing sunsets and more.
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.
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!
