This was my second stay at The Tennis Cottage and hopefully won't be last. We love this place--the view, location, and attention to detail are top notch. Bill and Suzanne are wonderful hosts and you can tell how much they care about the entire property. Everything is sparkling clean and they also provide wonderful extras--like beach chairs, coolers, towels, you name it--they have thought of it. Can't wait to go back--I highly recommend!

We had a fantastic stay! The view from the tennis cottage and court is breathtaking. The cottage has plenty of room, is well equipped and clean. We also loved having a tennis court right outside the door! The owners were accommodating... If your looking for a nice place with great views, and short drive to the beaches, this is it! The weather is also incredible. Loved the sunshine, blue water and breezes.

A St. John vacation is the best and the best place to stay is Orchid Court! Feb 2019 was our second stay here. The first time in the Tennis Cottage and this year in Main House. The web site says “designed for privacy, serenity and relaxation” - and I really can’t say it better. My family of four insisted we come back to St. John and stay at Orchid Court. The location in Catherineberg is perfect. Easy to get to Cruz or Coral Bay, and north and south beaches. You’ll want for nothing here - everything we needed was provided. My personal favorite thing at Orchid Court was the wonderful breeze. You’ll be planning your trip back or how you can stay forever before you leave. Thanks Suzanne and Bill for sharing your home!

Time to leave this beautiful, quiet retreat in the hills. The sounds of the cottage are going to be missed - the coqui, the morning doves. Our early morning yoga and tennis routine was a great start tor the daily exploration of the island's best beaches and snorkeling. Every day was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you for the warm greeting and welcoming table. Nice touches throughout.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful cottage with us. We will miss looking out at all the stars and "stars" on the yachts at night. The sunrises and sunsets were magnificent. We appreciate your simple acts of kindness: fixing my hat, fresh local fish, flowers when we arrived. We saw a hummingbird on your hibiscus today. We love this island and hope to come back. P.S. The Trail Bandit Guide was wonderful. we used it for hikes and driving to the beaches. The St. John "Feet, Fins and 4 Wheel Drive" book by Pam Gaffin was also very useful for planning snorkeling and hiking trips. I might suggest some type of fish guide. I saw lots of fish at Maho and wanted to find out what they were.

A relaxing break. Loved the tranquility, loved the hot tub and loved the cottage. Up at 6am every morning and ready for bed by 8pm after long days visiting all the beaches. Played tennis but not enough! We may come again!

I will take back with me many, many fond memories. The view of the Norfolk Island Pine from the hot tub. The pair of French Angelfish at the back of Hawksnest Reef. The passion fruit daiquiri at Shipwreck Landing. But maybe none so fond as the view from the terrace at night after having arrived from our "Incredible Journey" here after our "bird strike" emergency landing. Loved everything.
