We visited Skyridge from July 18th thru July 25th. It was perfect for us. We had a large group of nine, ranging from age 10 to age 80, so the layout with two floors worked very well. We could be together as a family, or we could scatter out for more individual time. We cooked in 3 nights and had a game night – all of us gathered around the big dining room table. We could send the younger kids downstairs to watch TV while the rest of us hung out on the deck to watch the birds, the ever changing view and enjoy the wonderful breezes – in the whole week the upstairs TV was never turned on. Loved the outdoor shower! Having WIFI was great, and we never had a problem with AT&T cell phones. The pool got plenty of use by all of us! We had adult drinks with the key limes from the property. The interesting driveway was quickly mastered as was driving on the “wrong” side of the road. The steep, winding roads were an eye-opener - count on a 20-30 minute drive to get anywhere. We visited Lameshur Bay to snorkel, dive and enjoy the beautiful beach; Waterlemon Cay to snorkel, and Trunk Bay for our daughter’s wedding. We chartered “Born to Rhumb” and highly recommend them!

During our trip planning (and even during our time at Skyridge), Kay from Windspree was very helpful, and Judy did a great job of greeting us, showing us Skyridge and giving us very good instructions on where to shop and such. Skyridge had everything we needed – I hope we can go back again.


Skyridge was great!  We had 4 couples on our trip and Skyridge was perfect for us.  The views are amazing and the breezes coming up the hill made it very pleasant.  WIth quick access to either the north shore beaches or Coral Bay, this is a very convenient location.

Thanks again Homer and Linda for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. It was even more special this time to come here with our kids (grown) What a great feat to get all of us here from all over,but we did it! We can't remember when the last time we spent a week together. Loved snorkeling at Maho,Francis,Haulover,Lameshur and Salt Pond. Fun playing cards and scabble-disconnecting from devices!

Highlights were:

Meeting Ziggy Hartness,the pig and attending his 4th B'day party at the Beach Bar. Meals at Aqua Bistro were the best ever! Family Portraits by Lindsey Vann at Maho Beach. All in All, great family vacation,great weather,great memories made.

Thank you for the beautiful villa. We had a wonderful stay here. The view was amazing and the binoculars were great for bird watching. The pool was so fun. Everyone here in St.John was so nice,someone offered us some fruits that looked like dragon-eye. The "Tourist Trap" restaurant was very good.

My memories will be full of the view that I can not get enough of, the sun so soft upon my back, the breeze that plays on my body like cool butterflies, the lack of humidity,the beauty of the plants and the knowledge of their defences (look don't touch!), the wild life songs that sang me to sleep. but mostly the security and love I felt being among the family. I enjoyed the outdoor shower!!!

Nice gardener,Cleaned the pool!

Connie , 05/2014

First time on Paddle-board,Great Fun! Turning around against the Cinnamon Bay current not so easy. Did ok on knees until metal joints became irritated. Tried standing up,wiped out,exciting!

What I will remember:

Bird watching while bathing

Best Bushwacker on the island at Miss Lucy's,Jazz brunch and baby goats strolling through the tables were a bonus.

Donkeys,goats,and chickens around every corner giving new meaning to Free-Range! Everyone should be so lucky!

Tourists on buses marching like ants into Trunk Bay. Glad they didnt know to be the first on the beach at 7:30 like us!

Communing with sea turtles in Maho Bay,Empty beaches at Salt Pond and Waterlemon

Mr. Romney taking the time from his gadening to name the beautiful plants in the garden;tasty cocktails and snacks from the freshly picked limes and papaya.

natures A/C (Island Breeze) instead of the manmade version.

Best Cuisine on the Island at Concordia (don't feed the feral cats and keep a can of bug spray at the table for your feet) Chef is from one of my favorite NOLA  restaurants Conchon- and does a wonderful job.

Best Bar food goes to Skinny Legs. Different activity every night.Get there before sunset and play a round of horseshoes.

Enjoyed the Kayak eco-tour,but was surprised to learn that most of the plants on island are out to get me.

The reverend Capt.Phil Chalker of the Wayward Sailor (yes he is ordained and does weddings and burials at sea) Not a first class operation,but a first class experience. Avoid the crowds,sail with him.

Eating and sitting around the table talking "remember the time.." stories while swatting skeeters.The skeeter zapper. Best invention since the yellow post it note. Even the drivers at the cab stands use them.

Copies of Homer's books that he personalized for us. We passed them around,was glad to learn he's an engineering geek like us.

All in All, the trip of a lifetime,with the boys graduating,this may be the last family trip with all of us together.If so, Im glad this was it.

Dear Windspree (especially Kay),

Our stay was fantastic. All the comments we read on websites beforehand were spot-on. The house was very well prepared for our arrival - i.e., your maid did a great job on it. Scenery is outstanding, great views. Kay was really helpful in making arrangements, answering questions, and explaining what to expect, very professional. 


Most of our pictures only duplicate views already posted on your website. But one afternoon, from the deck we saw the pictured  Coast Guard ship sailing through the channel.



Gene and Mary Ann , 05/2014

Once again, our vacation at Skyridge is winding down. We leave with many, many pictures and memories. First 2 days on the water and snorkeling and visiting (can you say Painkilllers?) the BVI's aboard a charter from Ocean Runners (Captain Pogan was loads of fun) Sunday, we went fishing aboard the Bad Kitty and came home with more tuna than we could have imagined.Just note, The captains license is for 6 passengers-No more....or your extra friend will have to spend the "Voyage" at the Westin-Not too shabby was it Linda?
The rest of out time was spent thouroughly enjoying our time spent with Homer and Linda watching the beautiful boats in the channel,snorkeling at out favorite places and relaxing with our "Island friends".

It was our first time to hike Rams head -What an amazing view-cooling off with a snorkel at blue cobblestone and hiking back to the car.Finished with lunch at Tourist Trap-Awesome! Our dinners at Caneel and Concordia were great, but the evenings spent at Skyridge playing games were most enjoyable. Thank you to our dear friends Homer and Linda, for welcoming us, once again, into your home. 

Al and Carol , Huntsville,AL , 04/2014

Thank you for sharing your home with us.Your home, beautiful lanscapes, views, and beaches were amazing. This was our first time to St.John, but it will not be our last. We had wonderful weather and awesome snorkel trips to several bays on the island. Your home is perfect. We had all that we needed. Loved the views,decktime and stars at night.

Chris,Cristin,Meredith and Caty , Acworth,GA , 03/2014

Another wonderful week on St.John. So Glad we met Homer and Linda on our last trip. Thank you for sharing your house,it's a wonderful home. We loved the view,watching rain storms come and pass us by was fun. Watching the birds wes a treat, those hummers are ferocious! Great snorkeling especially at Salt Pond and the Indians. We saw our first shark snorkeling on this trip,a nurse and a lemon-Very exciting. Great week!
