This villa lacked for nothing! And right on the beach! We had a lovely stay. I did call to let you know that the washing machine is not functioning properly- it wouldn't cycle and didn't empty. Thanks for everything. Fran
SOP was top drawer, as always!!!
String of Pearls was absolutely super. It was our third stay and everything was perfect. All equipment and appliances worked as they should. We took the kayak out a couple of times since the weather was great our entire stay. But the rain late Friday night into Saturday morning was the heaviest I have ever seen on STJ!!! Would suspect it filled BJ's cistern. Take care to all and we will be contacting you soon to schedule our April visit. Thanks for everything!!
Hidden Gem
We had a wonderful stay at SOP. Fantastic location, minutes from town. Very private. Walk to the Westin and enjoy their amenities and Cruz Bay Water Sports excursions leave from their dock. It was so convenient to walk over and get on the boat. Excellent communication and very clean. Kayak, life jackets, cooler, beach chairs and noodles are all their for your use. Lay in bed and look at the bay and sailboats.
String of Pearls
Amazing! I absolutely loved String of Pearls. The location was perfect the place was clean and the host Nemisy was great!

I would definitely recommend staying at String of Pearls.
We stayed here for the second consecutive year. Like last year, we loved our stay. Beautiful villa with a great location.
Where do I start? We LOVE it here and it truly feel like it's our home for a week. We enjoy all the amenities including the beach,the kayak, the hummingbirds in the morning and the home itself. It has everything we need for a relaxing week. It's our home away from home. BJ is an exceptional host and we don't have any other interest in visiting anywhere else for a salt water vacation! We'll be back. Thank you for another great vacation and stay. Jill and Eric Akre
March 2017 Stay at SOP
The place was perfect for just the two of us! We really enjoyed everything String of Pearls offered (especially the tandem kayak) and the close location to the downtown area and the national park was an added bonus! We would definitely stay there again!
Any closer to the water we'd be swimming
This place is all about being beach front! Waking up with your coffee & sitting at one of the many choices on the beach enjoying the boats on the water! Swimming at your door! Close to town & other great beaches ! Love walking to Westin's great restaurants. The studio only holds 2 so very romantic. BJ responds quickly if you have any problems on your stay. We stayed 9 days & never even used the hot tub or kayak so next time for sure! We will definitely return to this hidden gem on our favorite island! 🌴
Absolutely first rate as always. BJ is such a great host.
Very Pleased with String Of Pearls. This was my first visit to St. John. During the rental process, Gina was helpful on all fronts. When I arrived and opened the front door, "fresh flowers welcomed me". There were well-selected items already in the fridge. The view is beautiful.It is like you have your own little private beach. If I ever come to St. John again, I will want to stay at the String Of Pearls.
St. John strong!
We reserved String of Pearls nearly a year prior to our visit, which was an annual trip for Thanksgiving. Of course, following Irma and Maria we were in deep debate about whether or not we should go as planned. We did, and are very happy we did so. The house was miraculously spared any significant damage, and the power to it had been restored the day before we arrived - an added and unexpected plus. The local team had ensured everything was as it would have been in any non post-hurricane visit. The beach had been cleared for our use, the house was spotless. You could tell a lot of work had gone in to preparing this little oasis. The debris was still piled high in other areas, power lines were being actively restrung throughout the island, and construction hammers replaced the usual sounds of sugarbirds but welcomingly so. The island has a long road ahead and I'm sure the folks working on String of Pearls had plenty of other priorities they could have been addressing, but they made our comfort and stay a top one and we were very humbled and thankful for it.
String of Pearls: A hidden gem in the middle of a tropical paradise
To say that my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the String of Pearls is an understatement. This beautiful relaxing villa is a hidden gem in the middle of a tropical paradise. It has all the amenities needed for a romantic getaway (i.e. full kitchen, bathroom, private deck, hot tub and beach view of Great Cruz Bay). And, is close enough for a short drive into Cruz Bay for dining options, activities, beaches and night life. What's also fantastic about the property is the wonderful owner, BJ, and property manager, Jason, who made sure we felt comfortable during our stay. It was sad to leave, but we can't wait to come back!
Wonderful villa
We have stayed at String of Pearls three times and absolutely love it! It is perfect for two people. Great location and beautiful views. It is only a short drive into Cruz Bay and even closer to the grocery store. We love the layout of the villa----large sliding doors across the front which let in a great breeze. We usually need no ac. Very private and always a great time! BJ Harris and staff do everything to ensure that we have a wonderful vacation! Just booked for next year!
String of Pearls
Top drawer as always!! Our fifth stay and it was perfect in every way. It was great to see how little damage the villa suffered and to bump into BJ a couple of times. The roosters starting up at 3:30 in the morning was interesting,, but we are early risers so it was no big deal. LOL Thanks for everything and will be back next year again. Tom
String of Pearls is a true gem!
We had the privilege of staying at SOP this month, and what a treat! There are very few villas on St. John with direct water access, but this space does. It also has all of your comforting amenities like A/C, dishwasher, Satellite TV, internet, plus hot tub and pool, all at an unbelievably low nightly rate for St. John.

It's close to town, quiet (except for the rooster), and private.

Perfect location for a relaxing week. The view was amazing. BJ and her staff go over and beyond to make your trip one to remember. So nice to have beach chairs, towels and a cooler available for beach trips. We will go back.
Cliff & Diane
A gem of a studio with beautiful views of Great Cruz Bay. Enjoy late afternoon cocktails on the deck before heading to town for Painkillers and dinner. We spent two weeks with friends at Coral Bay before coming to String of Pearls for a week of quiet relaxation. 10 minute drive to Trunk Bay and Hawksnest. There is construction in the wake of the hurricanes and Great Cruz Bay is no exception, but it is positive and not intrusive. Love St. John and its wonderful people. Love the staff at St.John Properties, too.
Shawn & Jessica
Shawn and I really enjoyed our stay at String of Pearls. It was exactly what we were looking for, in a great location! We will def be back and have already recommended it to our friends. :)
Perfect for a couple
This villa was perfect for a couple. A loft with a very comfortable bed, direct bay access with use of a kayak! There was a jacuzzi on the balcony that my husband used once, but I never was up to using it because when we'd get back to the villa in the early evening, the mosquitoes were out and I was the one they preferred between the two of us. We kept the windows opened (with the screens closed, of course, during the day, but closed everything up in the evening and used the A/C for the night when we went to sleep. That way, the nearby roosters didn't wake us up around 4:30 am as they had the first night we left the windows open without the A/C. Good convenient location for running back and forth to downtown Cruz Bay and to the many beaches! Loved this place!
Can't wait to visit again!!
String of Pearls was everything we hoped for and more! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The beach cottage is far enough from busy Cruz Bay yet close enough to the Westin and Market to meet our meal needs! Having a full kitchen is always on our priority list! The beach front and kayak offered plenty of relaxation and activity! The weather was perfect and with the amount of windows, fans, and picturesque patio door- we didn't need the AC, actually didn't even think about the use of AC. The taxi services at the Westin offered us the opportunity to visit the National Park without having to rent a car. Linda and Pam of St John Properties offered a seamless transition from “real life” directly to “vacation life” the moment I inquired! Communication was wonderful, they set up transportation services for arrival and departure and having the added comfort of contact information while on the Island added an extra sense of comfort, along with BJ being at the top of the hill!
We will be back and will certainly inquire on this property again!!
Charming Caribbean Oceanfront Cottage in Prime Location
My husband and I spent an extended weekend in May at String of Pearls and we loved every minute of it. The house is located in Great Cruz Bay in walking distance from the Westin Resort and has its own Beach right in front of the house. Despite its superb location, the place is absolutely quiet (no noises from the Ressort) and makes you feel you got away from it all! The house is very solidly built and tastefully furnished and decorated. It has a large deck with terrific Ocean view and a large outdoor area down below with Beach access. It comes with a Grill and outdoor furniture and one evening we had a romantic candle light dinner right on the beach! During the day we spent the time on the deck reading or watch the sailboats going in and out Great Cruz Bay. The owner of String of Pearls also owns a beautiful historic sailboat and took us and two other couples out one evening for an absolutely spectacular sunset cruise, champagne and gourmet cheese platter included! All in all, our stay at String of Pearl was a wonderful experience and we will certainly come back.
Perfect romantic weekend
String of Pearls could not have been more perfect! We came to St. John for a wedding and stayed in this gem on the beach just steps away from the Westin Resort and azure waters of Great Cruz Bay. This is a big little house and has everything you could possibly want. The staff at St. John Properties saw to our every need and made sure we were happy. It was nice to know the owner lives on the property, although with our separate driveway and parking, we never actually saw her. We couldn’t rave enough about this real Pearl!
String of Pearls was AWESOME
Thank you, Pam, Linda, and BJ for all of your help during our stay at SOP. It was so quaint and cute, but gave us the "home base" we needed while exploring the island. We loved opening all the windows and having the island cross breeze. We were completely relaxed, but managed to have an excellent adventure during our visit to St. John!
Wonderful Cozy Spot
This was our second visit to St. John and our second stay at String of Pearls. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing atmosphere this is the place to be.
String of Pearls is a piece of heaven tucked away on St. John's Island. Enjoy your private beach overlooking the bay. Let the stress drip away as you relax in a hammock on the beach, with the warm breezes flowing across you and take in the smell of island tranquility. As you enter the cottage, all your needs are met with a cozy sitting area and a comfy bed to watch the stars twinkle and illuminate as you wish upon a star. You will never be ready to say goodbye but, I guarantee a piece of the island will go with you until you return again.
Perfect Beachfront Romantic Villa
Beautiful small villa with its own beach! This villa has everything you need for a romantic getaway! Beautiful interior with canopy bed, patio with hot tub and a wonderful outdoor area with lounges and hammock. The location is VERY close to the Westin. It's near the quiet section so you can enjoy the market and restaurants while not being disturbed by others. My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. Very nice and private yet with access to anything you need. Nice linens, kayak, coolers for your beach days. I'd highly recommend String of Pearls!
Ron And Sharon
We had a great time as always!!! Thanks to all. The shower handle is broken, but I let Mark know. Also the washing machine seems to be kaput. But no big deal for us. Thanks again!!!
