What a wonderful time we had on St. John!  This was our first visit – after being on St. Thomas for 4 nights for my son’s wedding.  This island is truly a relaxing place.  The condo was perfect – nice to come back after a long day at the many beaches -- a warm shower felt terrific!  Got our exercise by walking to and from town each day.  Had a fabulous ½ day snorkeling trip on the Kekoa – worth the price.  We’ll be back to St. John, for sure.

We had a wonderful stay at Serendip.  A perfect place to stay and so nice to have whatever you need right there – really was just like home.  We made breakfast and packed lunch at the condo and took it in a cooler to whatever beach we were going to.

Amazing trip!  Visited for our 6th wedding anniversary.  What an incredible island!  We were fascinated by something new every day.  There’s so much history and you can feel the energy of the local people everywhere.  We hiked trails every day and ended with a beautiful sunset out on the veranda.  Incredible beaches and super yummy food.  Thank you for everything, property managers!

Our 33rd wedding anniversary will be a special memory.  We had all we needed here for a remarkable stay.  Clean.  Close enough to beaches and hikes.  Comfortable.  Relaxing.  Loved our time on St. John and with the St. Thomas Church of Christ on Sunday.  Thanks!

We had an amazing trip to St. John and loved our stay at Serendip!  It was perfect for a family of 4 with a 4 year old and a 20 month old – we donated several kids toys, buckets, beach balls, floaties.  Hope these come in handy for any future families that stay here.  Loved sitting out on the balcony listening to all the birds, frogs, and other island sounds.  The bananaquits loved the sugar we put out every morning and we enjoyed watching them.  Thanks to the property manager for making sure we had a great stay!  We’ll be back!

Back for business.  All is going very well.  Wonderful new property managers doing an excellent job…Serendip is even better – the grounds and condos are in fine shape.  As always, hate to leave.

Although we had a very short visit we enjoyed ourselves immensely.  Great staff and all the islanders, especially the taxi drivers, were very helpful.

Most definitely love the condo!  We had a wonderful time here at Serendip.  It was definitely a home away from home.  We enjoyed the marvelous view and the rest of the guests at the condo.  This was the second time here spent celebrating our parents’ anniversary and we plan on staying here again!  We truly thank you guys.

This was our second visit to St. John and first stay at Serendip.  What a gem it is!  We loved the views and sounds.  Out and about we saw cows, donkeys, deer, roosters, chickens, mongoose and lizards but our favorite was seeing the cute bananaquits every morning at the feeder!  Our favorite thing to do during our stay was snorkel!  We could spend hours at all the beaches.  Our favorite was Maho Bay – swimming with the sea turtles!  Recommend Drift Away Spa for massages and Cruz Bay Water Sports for The Baths tour, also VI Park tour with the guide!  We enjoyed our vacation.  Can’t wait to return.

We really enjoyed our stay at Serendip on St. John.  The view we had from the balcony of the condo was awesome.  We drove around the entire island and enjoyed all the beaches and scenery.  We also made a day trip to The Baths on Virgin Gorda and the views were breathtaking.  The kids could not get enough --snorkeling or exploring.  We plan on coming back again!

Serendip was a wonderful condo with absolutely everything we needed!  Property managers were fantastic and gave us lots of great tips.  We stayed for 2 weeks without a jeep and took safari taxis to the beaches and the bus to Coral Bay.

Once again we are enjoying our Serendip condo and the view from the veranda: early a.m. to watch the sunlight over STT and watching the sun go down in the p.m.  Swimming, snorkeling, enjoying the sun and the wildlife on our favorite island!  Any day on the water is better than a great day at work.  Thanks for sharing your retreat with us.  We will be back soon!

We could not have asked for a more wonderful spot than Serendip!  This is my first time in the Caribbean -- pleasantly surprised at how generous the locals are!  We have loved every minute here.  See you soon, Serendip!

We came on our honeymoon and it was a blast!  Food was delicious, sights were gorgeous and the wildlife was fantastic! Snorkeling Maho and Francis was the highlight of the week!  Make sure to wear sunscreen… The property manager was wonderful and super helpful!  She’ll give you the 411 on where to eat and where to go.  Wish there had been more time for more adventures!  Serendip is the tops!

We are enjoying our stay at Serendip.  We rented here previously.  We love the condo’s spaciousness and breezes.  Will visit again and stay here.  Had a wonderful day at Cinnamon Bay.  Rented a kayak and paddled around the cays, stopping to snorkel -- maybe our favorite adventure (although we love Salt Pond and Leinster Bay/Waterlemon Cay).  So many beautiful beaches, so little time.  We’ll have to come back.

This is our first time to St. John and we hope to be back!  Such an amazing place.  We came for a family friend’s destination wedding and could not be happier with our accommodations at Serendip!  The property managers have been so helpful and accommodating for our stay.

There isn’t much we would have changed; maybe just add more time!  The condo was perfect, exactly as advertised, and the property manager was a gracious and considerate hostess.  Never got a car and it really worked out fine.  Taxis are plentiful and everywhere. 
David & Maureen of Wolfeboro, NH

We had a fantastic time – our first trip to St. John and the V.I.  Amazing view and sunsets from the deck.  A beautiful condo.  Really appreciated the beach chairs and cooler.  The property manager is a star – very helpful with everything.

Our 13th annual trip to St. John and we loved it just as much as our past trips!  The condo was very comfy and we hope to come back again.  We loved the pool so much that Jack (7yrs) and Maya (9yrs) were jumping in the water and staying in for hours!  One day when we were at Solomon, Chloe (4yrs) learned to swim!  We had an awesome time here.

Sisters’ week.  What a way to enjoy spring break! We loved our home away from home.  As we enjoy the view from our porch this morning, just thinking about the beautiful beaches, the mountains, the great food, and a wonderful place to sleep at night!  We are blessed!

We had a wonderful time on St. John and enjoyed the condo very much.  Also we loved the view and the property manager was very helpful with everything.  The condo was very nice and clean and is just a wonderful place to stay on St. John.  We will be coming back to St. John next year also.

Serendip is everything we dreamed of and more!  Where shall we begin?  The view, the location, the pool, the condos have huge accommodating decks -- perfect for us!  We grilled and listened to tunes.  The property manager was super easy-going and always very accommodating.  Definitely will stay here again. We watched movies every night – good ones, too.  We love St. John and Serendip!

We had a fabulous time here on St. John.  We feel very fortunate to have found this place to stay!  We loved our porch here at the condo and ate breakfast every day, and many delicious dinners here, too!  And what fun watching the bananaquits each morning!  We had the best day trip ever on The Bad Kitty.  The weather was sometimes cloudy but it was still plenty of sun for us!  Great snorkeling – every day we went, actually.  It was great for us to have a rental car – we love to explore the whole island.  Can’t wait to return!  Thanks to the property manager for doing such a great job.

Easy to forget what day it is here.  Thank you to the property manager for all the help and making us feel so welcomed here.  The view is not too hard to take either.  Be well.  Peace.

Welcome to paradise!  Serendip provides all the comforts of home without the hassles.  No bugs but plenty of hummingbirds and bananaquits.  Walk to Cruz Bay easy (not too hot – perfect). Grab a taxi to and from the beaches.  Met other guests around the pool or around the island.  Folks friendly and helpful.  Church air conditioned and pastor amazing. We left happy and hope to return when the snow flies in 2014.  We come yearly 10, 20, 30 years ago!  Property manager helpful and quick to respond to any request. 
Pat & Jim G. of Medford, MA

Magical island with amazing snorkeling, sailing (Sail Safari great for a lesson and a full day snorkel on Dell Rose 40’), beaching, hiking (great ranger-led hike to Reef Bay) and relaxing.  We love the National Park.  We hope to come back regularly and learn to be more laid back like the charming people we’ve met here!  Loved the condo, so clean, well-equipped, gorgeous views.  The property manager made the condo feel like home.  The iguanas in the trees, hummingbirds, and bananaquits were awesome.  Make sure you have AT&T cellular!

Fourth time at Serendip!  Good swimming and snorkeling, great dining (have breakfast on the veranda). Had a great, relaxing time – now back to cold New England but missed the blizzard of ’13!

As usual, another great vacation at Serendip!  It’s great to be back to a familiar place (10+ years) and to have a great host in the property manager.  Thanks, we’ll see you next year!

Lovely condo and a beautiful view.  We totally enjoyed our time here.  The property manager was wonderful and helped us a lot.  A four day vacation is too short and we will be back next time!

Lovely scenery during our 10 day stay at Serendip.  Lots of hills and interesting fellow condo-dwellers.  Condo nice, clean, and friendly. The beaches are spectacular and clean.

Where to begin?  My first visit to St. John was many years ago.  I stayed at Serendip.  The property manager was such a great host that I decided to come back for 2 weeks this year!  My sister took a condo too and she has already said she’ll be back too.  The island is pretty hard to describe to people who haven’t visited.  I tell everyone if they don’t return from St. John in a more peaceful state of mind, then maybe they have issues!  I can recommend Jost Van Dyke (a must visit) and great hikes: Reef Bay Trail, Cinnamon Bay Trail, and Caneel Hill trail to Hawksnest.  The property manager was once again a great host and I’m already planning a return trip for next year.  As long as a condo is available we’ll be staying here from now on.

We had a wonderful time on STJ.  We LOVED Serendip!  We fed the bananaquits every morning.  The property manager was great.  We will be back!
