..."Heaven in St John"- Haiku;.. "Just a brief email to thank you for renting your house to us from 2/25-3/3. My family and I had the best time. Our 10 month old granddaughter began crawling there, and our grandson went snorkeling everyday at Hawksnest. The graciousness of everyone on St. John was fantastic from Carefree to the locals. And the house was magnificent. We just loved it. Actually, I would not go to sleep until I had seen the stars at 2AM. Unbelievable. The aquamarine water, just everything. Superb! How lovely to have a cup of coffee poolside in the AM and to just sit and read and unwind.

..."We are having a marvelous time. You have been very responsive, as always, to our requests. The kids and grand kids always look forward to coming. The little guys alternate the pool and the hot tub for half the day...Linda and Gordon..."
..."Bob and I had the most Amazing Week of our Lives staying at Haiku. The pictures of this Villa do not do it Justice!! The open air living area, was just Amazing. With the Constant Breeze and the beautiful view, we would without a doubt stay here again!! What a wonderful way to experience, "Island Living"! Thank You so very much, and we will definitely be booking through Carefree Again!! Yours Truly, Michelle Healy"...
...."Good Memories"...Reviewed January 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2012
This was our second time and it was everything we wanted and expected. First time was when my son was born and 2 weeeks old. This time he was 17 and we took him and friends for their graduation trip. The home was still charming and romantic. Secluded yet close enough. The owners keep it in great condition and would be back in a minute. We were last there in 2010. Fort Lauderdale, FL"....
....Beautiful and comfortable nature's retreat...We couldn't be more pleased with our stay at Haiku on St John. We go to St John to enjoy its natural beauty, warm and tourquoise waters, slow pace and friendly environment. Haiku to us was a microcosm of St John; it's a beautiful house, with comfortable bedrooms and baths, and an open concept living/dining room that is literally open to the outside. You dine and lounge while watching all that nature holds, the beautiful foliage, water views, sunsets, and enjoy a pool and hot tub that seems to be right inside the house! There is a nicely furnished kitchen, and televisions and air-conditioning, but the closeness to nature that is what this house is all about. You will see geckos, and a occational iquana too! This house is not sterile, cookie-cutter hotel room, but a unique nature lover's paradise. We loved how close the house is to town (5 minutes) and to the Westin Hotel just down the hill for some easy dining and amenities. We loved Haiku and look forward to returning there again! ...Marti Washington D.C. ...."
This was our 23rd year to St. John and our 10th year at Haiku. Friends and family visited with us. As always, Cindy, Mo and the Carefree staff take good care of us.

We spent our daughter’s spring break in paradise, with special thanks to the owners. The house was just lovely. We’ve rented homes with doors that brought the inside in, but never before one where the inside was outside. What a wonderful design and such a well-appointed home. We saw land and sea creatures, snorkeled almost every beach, ate marvelous food out and cooked meals at home watching the bananaquits and hummingbirds. We’ll be back!

Stayed for our 10th anniversary! Loved every second here at Haiku. We snorkeled and swam. Mostly we ate at Haiku as we both are professional chefs.
Tradewinds blowing cool
Agave and Aloe around
Hummingbirds fly by
We are in heaven
Even the towels are great
Banana Rum Punch
Careful that booze will sneak up
Best not to over-do

What can we say except “perfect”. Thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities of the villa- great views- loved the open- air living space-watching the bananaquits in the mornings (don’t forget to feed them). Wonderful on island dining. Carefree Getaways - easy to work with. Thank you!

Everyone is asleep except me and the roosters! I have the entire world to myself, and all of Haiku’s healing powers! This place is so magical-I have never experienced anything like it. I hope I can retain this state of mind while shoveling snow in my driveway TOMORROW.
I sat by the pool with an Egret, and took a short walk with an iguana and met a nice donkey that comes when I call him!
Thank you to all who made this possible! I will never be the same!!

This was my first time coming to the Caribbean. Let me tell you it was a great trip! #HAIKU
I went night swimming. The pool here is great! Lynn
These comments were written by Lynn, who visited St. John for her 16th birthday present. Lynn enjoyed everything immensely. My husband and I have been several times to St. John, the last being 10 years ago. Of all the places we have stayed, Haiku is definitely our favorite.
P.S. We scared away our lizard friend, Mr. Majestic! I hope he comes back to befriend the next guests!
