Sopra Mare was the perfect house to spend a week at. The house is beautiful and decorated perfectly. You will be stunned by the views, especially at sunset. We used the beach chairs and coolers everyday and returned from the beach to an inviting pool...

We picked Sopra Mare after an exhaustive search and we were not disappointed. The house was clean and well maintained. The friendly property manager met us at Cruz Bay and lead us to the property. The view is spectacular from the pool and the house. We enjoyed opening the sliding, accordion doors each morning to let the cool breeze flow through the house...

If you’re looking for a peaceful location and views that will blow your mind this is your place. The view during the day is as breathtaking as the sunset at night. I can’t say enough about the owner of the property, He is accommodating and truly wants you to enjoy your stay...

Can’t say enough about how great this Villa was. We were contacted in advance to let us know that someone would meet us and get us situated into the Villa. Mike the owner was excellent by communicating and coordinating all the details. The Villas was everything and more than we ever expected. You will not find a better view anywhere...

We love Sopra Mare! We stayed 7 nights in May 2018 and are already planning to return next year. Sopra Mare had us from the view from the pool. 180 degrees of sheer beauty. The villa is private, easy to get to and convenient to all you might want to do on St. John. Meticulously cleaned and ready for your visit.
