While planning our trip I had no idea where to begin with where to stay and especially what part of the island. The owners were so much help and decided that maybe somewhere between Cruz Bay and coral might be just perfect. Let me just say we were thrilled with our decision. Villa Morena was a perfect escape to call home for a week. The views are simply breath taking. The rooms had everything we needed and the place was spotless upon arrival. After all our research we were so pleased and confident we made the right decision. We have already booked for next year! Thank you, Dan and Lorena!!!

“Perfect Villa for our family!”

Villa Morena was the perfect choice for us. The reviews and photos lived up to expectations. We really enjoyed the Coral Bay side of the island as it's a little more quiet and relaxed. The property is very clean and well maintained and furnished. It has everything you need for the week, including beach chairs and towels as well as kitchen equipment and grill. The owners (Dan and Lorena) are great hosts, very helpful and just nice people. You do need a Jeep to reach the Villa. We enjoyed snorkeling at Salt Pond and Little Lameshur. We dined at Aqua Bistro, Pickles Deli, Miss Lucy's and Skinny Legs (all were good). Feeding the crabs turned out to be fascinating. Our kids for some reason found the porch a great place to sleep as it was like sleeping outside and camping for them, so we actually had an empty bedroom the entire stay! We would highly recommend this property and hope to return some day.

“Breathtaking villa in St. John - THANK YOU DAN AND LORENA!!!!!!”

My wife and I decided to go to St. John for our belated honeymoon/vacation that we honestly just didn't have the chance to take because life got in the way. We're both from Florida and are simply just accustomed to the daily hustle & bustle of our daily lives. Dan and Lorena, in so many ways made our vacation one for the books!! They made us completely forget about our lives back at home by providing us with an amazing house, that we were able to call our home (for the weekend) and by being the best tour-guides for our short time spent on the island.

Dan (a.k.a. BRUCE the tour-guide, (inside story)), is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to knowing the best restaurants, best sunsets, best snorkeling reefs to visit, and the best islands to hop around that serve the best Bushwhackers and Painkillers. Villa Morena also was able to provide us with a safe and fun island hopping boat that we were able to charter for the day which made our trip that much more exciting!

The house itself was perfect! They recently remodeled it a couple months ago to provide us with all the amenities that we are accustomed to back at home like A/C, modern new bathrooms and living areas which awesome views of Coral Bay.

I don't typically write reviews for anything online, so this is one of my first. That being said, Villa Morena and its hosts truly knocked it out of the park for us! I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone looking to stay in St. John for any reason.

“Excellent Stay at Villa Morena!”

We had such an excellent time staying at Villa Morena! We enjoyed the quieter more scenic side of the island near coral bay. The owners Dan and Lorena were the BEST hosts. Upon arrival, they met us at the ferry and brought us to our jeep rental, and then to our Villa. During our stay Dan and Lorena, told us the best places to eat, hike, and snorkel and the even offered to arrange a boat excursion for us. The Villa was recently re-modeled, CLEAN, and comfortable, and attractive. Also of important note, our villa had air conditioning which is not the case in other vacation rentals on St. John! We ate breakfast each morning on the private balcony and soaked in the beautiful views for coral bay, (so relaxing). The location was very near the most pristine, BEST beaches on St. John (all the beaches are great, but our favorites were withing 10-12 minutes from the villa) There was also a small grocery store nearby for supplies/food which turned out to be quite convenient. We highly recommend this place to all of our friends and family. THANKS DAN AND LORENA!!!

“Excellent Villa: Very comfortable with great views and attentive owners.”
Reviewed 18 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at Villa Morena during the last week of November trying to take advantage of the US Holidays and to stay far, far away, from any 'Black Friday' madness and temptations. We had St John on our list of places to visit as it was a destination highly recommended by friends and family. Being the first time on the USVI, we only knew we wanted a quiet place with easy access to beaches and nature but not away from civilization. Villa Morena proved to be a perfect choice for us from beginning to end. The owners helped us plan most of the activities and they were very accommodating to our needs... from renting a car, to booking excursions and recommending great restaurants. We traveled with our 3.5 year old and she enjoyed everything... from the wildlife in the area (including the donkeys that roam around the island), to snorkeling and sailing. Enjoyment for the big ones was plenty too, from drinks at Soggy Dollar Bar to excellent food around the island. After a usual day full of activities, getting to a cozy place with stunning views was awesome. I advise for mosquito repellent when sipping your wine/beer/rum at the balcony to watch the sunsets. Having A/C and TV in the rooms was a big plus for our nights. I definitely would stay at this Villa again when considering traveling to St John.
