Very charming house with beautiful view. Short walk to everything in town. Hear the ocean while falling asleep. Will definitely stay here again.
I took my daughter and her buddy to St. John for a vacation. A friend told me about Michael's villa and it was perfect. Mike was also a great host.He met us at the ferry since he happened to be in town. He walked us to the villa and showed us all around. The walk is easy - just a short little hill. We were often met by those peacocks who wander around! Beds are comfy. The kitchen is well equipped with everything to cook with. But we went out for almost every meal since the food is SOOO good on this island!
We had coffee on the veranda every morning. Beautiful. The little beach is great. We snorkled all around and saw tons of pretty fish. We did not rent a car which was no problem since the walk to town is only 5 minutes tops. Taxis are always available at the ferry dock. Even though I kind of stumbled upon this little gem of a villa, I'd have to say there just can't be anything that's better from a comfort/location/access/safety perspective. Love this place! Thanks Island Mike!
My husband and I stayed at seaside vista for 8 days. The location to town is perfect. It is a short walk to many restaurants and bars. The house was the perfect size for the 2 of us. The views from the patio are amazing. We bought a few groceries at the local market, if I was to do it again I would bring some non perishables in my suit case as the grocery stores are very expensive. It was so relaxing to get up and have breakfast and coffee on the patio every morning. We rented a car for a day to go to the beaches and over to coral bay. After that we took $6 taxi rides to the beach. We walked to Joe's Rum shack happy hour $3 whatever you want, daily. What a bargain! The bed is very comfortable. On the last day when looking at the checkout instructions, we realized there was a washer and dryer. It is outside, downstairs so we did not find it until we were leaving, lol. Michael was not on the island while we were there. Leslie was very accommodating and checked in to see if we needed anything. It was a fantastic vacation and we would definitely stay at seaside vista again.
What a wonderful week at a beautiful location. The house is lovely and just the right size for two adults. We lingered on the porch in the mornings and explored the beaches each afternoon. The window unit AC does a great job of cooling the house down in the evenings. The proximity of this house to downtown is the very best part. It's a five minute walk, from the house, to the Cruz Bay ferry dock. We walked to happy hour/dinner each night, alleviating all concerns about parking or about consuming alcohol. Despite being in the heart of the activity, it was quiet and peaceful with the occasional vehicle passing by and daily run-by of the neighboring peacock. The view from the porch, overlooking the magnificent water, with varying shades of blue, as well as the local "pirate ship" is almost breathtaking. Throw in the sunset over the water and it is paradise. We cannot wait to return and will definitely rebook at Seaside Vista.

We stayed in Seaside Vista because we didn't want to be among the many condo units. It was a short walk to town and the house was perfect for the four of us. The owner lives nearby and was in touch during the week to make our stay comfortable. Beautiful views of the ocean off the veranda and everything you need for a relaxed vacation.
