St. John Villa, Delfina. April 2009
Villa Specialist Bonnie Todman received a glowing trip report from these special guests. These repeat renters to St. John felt embraced by the warmth and care of their island managers as well as the ambiance and style of their chosen villa this time around, the beautiful Delfina...
We send our most sincere thanks to you, to everyone who is a part of your team, and to the owners of Delfina. We appreciate the free day that made it possible for us to make this trip as well as the great service provided by your team. Also, thanks for arranging the trundle bed for the 10 year old - it worked out very well, he loved the games!
What a warm welcome from Chuck as he led us to the villa! The presentation of the villa was enchanting, each room with the lights glowing, ceiling fans cooling the air and music drifting through the home. Our group was thrilled as Chuck took us on a tour and made us welcome. Then as we unpacked and settled in, we realized how much of a home it really was, with everything we could possibly need already there - from spices in the kitchen to band aids in the drawer.
My daughter and I loved changing the table linens to a different theme each day. The freshly baked carrot cake, and grapes, and water, and beer, and coffee, and diet/regular cokes, and chips and flowers made our first morning a dream come true as we sat on the balconies eating breakfast and looking across the bay at the most wonderful blue color of the water with the warm sun on our faces.
This vacation, for all of us, was wonderful. The villa made it so special that we happily came home from the beach (getting out of the water is very hard to do) to live in luxury and jump in the hot tub and cool off in the wonderful infinity pool. And the final touch with the balloons to celebrate my husband's birthday, the whole picture was perfect and so was the look in his eyes.
The memories will live forever in all our hearts, and when things get crazy busy I will go back to St. John and be in the water again and sit on the balcony of Delfina and take a breath of the cleansing air. Thanks, again, for your contribution to the best of our 6 visits to St. John.
