Do not deal with this person; I booked this house back on March 2017 to stay in March 2018, and when hurricane IRMA blew through St. Johns I immediately cancelled my reservation in October 2017 because of the severe damage and BJ blew me off like it was no big deal. However through various emails I was informed of the struggle the island was having getting back on their feet. I gave BJ plenty of notice to cancel and they have sent me meaningless emails and I have not received my deposit back. I believe in Karma and what goes around comes around. I'm gonna have to take my losses however I must say don't book with BJ she has no integrity.
We where the first to stay here after 2 devastating cat 5 hurricanes. The home was amazing we can not say enough about our time spent on this island and the peace and serenity your home provided.
We stayed at Swogjan for 2 weeks over the Christmas weeks, and I've been meaning to write a review... Overall we had a great stay and I recommend the property- particularly for families. It's a medium sized split level house with 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 1 bedroom on a lower/basement floor. The lower bedroom is not directly connected, and I think they may rent it out separately at times. The main Pros are: perfect location on the island (very central and not near the noisy areas), a FANTASTIC private swimming pool, and probably the best views on the island. Also, communication with the rental agency and owners was very good. Cons: Definitely in need of an update; if you are looking for a super luxury new construction kind of place, this is not it- very clean and well maintained though. Water pressure is an issue because it has natural rainwater tanks which means that if you use up the tank you need to wait 15 minutes for the it to refill to get water back. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would come back.
Swogjan's Dragon was the perfect place for me, my husband and our friends who traveled with us to St. John. The house was nicely furnished, beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of cooking utensils and parking at the house was some of the best I have experiended in 25 years of going to St. John. Swogjan's is very centrally located which made going to the beaches an easy drive. The location of the house made for some of the most fabulous breezes ever experienced in St. John (good for keeping the mosquitos at bay!). Air condition was really not needed, but it is great to have it if one needs it. Thanks for adding it to Swogjan's! Views were spectacular -- down to Coral Bay, the Sir Francis Drake passage, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola -- just breath taking!! Thanks for sharing "the Dragon" with us. A great time was had by all.
