About Property Manager
Hi! This is my husband Josh and our son paddling around Lameshur Bay. He blames me for getting him involved with all this St John stuff! I, Suzanne, started vacationing on St John when I was in college, about 18 years ago. I took Josh here when we were dating and he also fell in love with this unique island. We bought property and started building- 2 years later we were finished-phew! We love to come down with our combined family of 2 college age boys, and our 5 and 2 year old. We certainly know the ins and outs of what to do with kids while vacationing on St John. This place is really a treasure and we are happy to share it with others.
Property Manager purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Property Manager chose Lower Carolina
We love being on the 'quieter' side of the island! Coral Bay has beautiful beaches, restaurants and bars without a lot of the commercialism you see in Cruz Bay. Our Villa is located in a wonderful neighborhood with a mixture of rental homes and year round residents. And we have a beautiful paved road that leads to the property- a plus on St John!
What makes this Villa unique
We have a killer view! On a clear day you can see Virgin Gorda. The views of the topography and water, clouds and blue sky are breath taking. We get wonderful sun and moon rises. The Villa is also brand new, solidly built, tastefully decorated with a lot of rich tropical wood. And the pool is a definite plus- hard to keep the kids out of it!

Great house, great location, and great views
We had 8 adults stay at this house for 8 days and it was great. The house has plenty of room for everyone to move around and not feel cramped. You can not beat the views at sunrise and sunset. Fantastic. The house was nicely equipped with everything needed for cooking, swimming and the beach.
The booking agent, Mark, also was easy to work with. Always responsive via email and gave us all the information needed.
We would definitely stay here again.
Best Villa in St John!
We had visited back in 2014 and stayed at the Villa and were so impressed by the Flanders Villa and the charms of St John, we knew we would be back. We had booked the villa for December of 2017, but Hurricane Irma arrived and we had to change plans. Both Mark and the Flanders were very communicative and we received a full refund from the Flanders. The Villa weathered the storm well, but power was down and roads blocked. We went to Belize as we had the time off already and the snorkeling was good, but it doesn't beat St John's snorkeling. We brought the family with the grandchildren in July of 2019 for a 40th birthday getaway and the Flanders Villa was the perfect base of operations for the 8 of us. Everyone had a marvelous time. The kitchen is perfect for making a big breakfast for everyone and the markets and beaches are close by. We enjoyed the new grill which we used for a couple of cookouts at the villa. The trade winds keep the house very comfortable even in July and all of the rooms are air conditioned so you get a great nights sleep for another day of exploring the island. The kids really enjoyed the pool which kept a perfect refreshing temperature due to the trade winds even though you would think it would get too warm in the tropical sun. We always get up early to see the dazzling light show known as sunrise in Coral Bay! We really appreciated the quiet laid back life style on the Coral Bay side of the island, but it is just a short drive to Cruz Bay if you want to experience the night life there, or catch a ferry to one of the other islands. We enjoyed the master bedroom shower which is under the sky. I saw a falling star one evening while showering. Occasionally you may have the company of a gecko or frog, but that is also part of the charm for me. We also watched 3 iguanas in the trees right below the balcony, and marveled at their camouflage, as they basked in the warm sunshine. After a brief rain one day, a beautiful rainbow arched across the harbor below which accentuated the already stunning view. If you don't have a great time here, you must not be trying. We are looking forward to another return trip to the Flanders Villa soon!

Beautiful location and beautiful villa!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The villa was clean, well stocked, and had beautiful views! We loved having a place to come back to after fun days of snorkeling and beach time! The outdoor showers were wonderful. There was a washer and dryer on site with was amazing. We had plenty of space to have large family dinners and play games at night! We had a wonderful time at this villa and would definitely come back!!
The house is in a great location overlooking Coral Bay. It’s extremely well maintained and appointed. The kitchen is stocked with all of the utensils, pots, and pans you need to prepare your own meals. Check out Skinny Legs for lunch/dinner and the Pickle for open mic night just down below on the bay. Mark was extremely helpful, responsive and pleasant to work with. We are already planning a return trip. Thanks, Mark!
Our 6th trip to St. John and our favorite rental by far. Great views, comfortable, spacious well decorated home. The property manager was quite helpful with tips, etc. Highly recommend it.
This is a great house. The furniture and decor is exceptional. The pool and view from it are fabulous. The kitchen is very nice and well equipped. The master bedroom is attached to the living space and is beautiful with a great outdoor shower. The other master and 2 bedrooms do require you to go outside and down steps. They each have a connected bathroom but to leave you have to go outside. Mark was very helpful getting us there and anything else we needed. Coral bay is still recovering so some of the landscape isn't as perfect as it used to be but the locals are so overwhelmingly grateful for tourists, it made us happy to be staying on that side of the island to help them recover. We really enjoyed eating at Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro and Pizza in Paradise. Some of the nicest people we have ever met. 4 wheel drive is a good idea for getting there and budget car rental at st Thomas airport really stinks. Go with Avis if your renting and actually want them to reserve a car when you make a reservation.
