About the property:

The moment you arrive, the pampering begins. You are met dockside and escorted to your rental car. Then whisked away for a short five-minute trip to Sopra Mare.

I know you are tired from a long day’s journey so after you are acquainted with Sopra Mare sit down to a full course meal complete with wine provided by us, of course, on your outside patio table.

Listen to the soft winds blow and enjoy the sounds of island life. Totally unwind from your hectic travels.

It’s getting late so sit in the 80-degree private pool with extended light show a drink in your hand while watching the lights of nearby islands.

Listen, do you hear that? Not a sound of another person near you. It’s just you and the Caribbean night.

Retire to the master suite fit for a king. A heavenly bed with Ritz Carlton pillows and 400 thread count color coordinated sheets await. There’s no white linens at your villa you. You expect, and we provide the very best.

Sleep well in your king bed as you watch cruise ships on the horizon through the full expansive doors then gently lay your head down for the first night of vacation.

Soothing surf crash below will quickly lull you to a night of blissful slumber.

Arise early, enjoy a refreshing shower from your rain forest shower head and of course, accompanied by London Molton Brown bath products world renowned for luxury at the most famous world five star hotels. Nothing is too good for you at Sopra Mare.

Now you’re ready for the beach. Load one of the multiple sized coolers, pack plenty of beach towels, grab a couple of Tommy Bahama ultra-comfortable beach chairs and begin your island adventure.

Each day you will rejoice in selecting Sopra Mare as your island vacation destination this time and for many vacations to come.

Sopra Mare (Above The Sea) is a stunning 1,600 sq ft cliffside villa, built n solid native rock set atop Maria Bluff in the most exclusive location in Chocolate Hole with crashing surf below

This unique home offers gated privacy yet has a one mile level walking circuit on paved roads where you may sip your morning coffee and watch iguana's cross your path. The villa is continually cooled by a slight gentle breeze which generally assures no biting insects.

Less than five minutes to town of Cruz Bay which offers excellent jazz at several locations on Saturday and Sunday including the famous Beach Bar - partial setting for my first book about St. John 'Keep Left.' Shopping and night life abound in Cruz Bay.

Other features include full laundry, digital cable, two connections for your iPod or MP3 player, secure, wireless high-speed Internet access for your laptop. A Bose speaker system for Bluetooth with your laptop or phone.

We want you to enjoy the full villa experience - therefore; if just two of you, no problem, bedrooms are NEVER locked off from your access.

Your villa is a world apart from noise and traffic; yet three minutes to the Westin Hotel, it's sandy beach and great Sunday Brunches.

Enjoy the song of the treefrogs late at night and wake to the hummingbirds making a feast on Sopra Mare flowers. Ceiling fans in all rooms and full individual frosty air conditioning in each bedroom await you.

Laze away in the pool on colorful rafts and turn on the pool lite show when the sun goes down - five colors and four speeds for your enjoyment.

If it's the right time take the villa binoculars and watch the Rolex Sailing Cup from the balconies with a cool beverage in your hand or dolphins, turtles and the occasional whale.

Sopra Mare has everything you would expect from an island home; convenience, elegance and comfort.

I look forward to your arrival at Sopra Mare we have a high percentage of returning guests, more than 40%. They recognize our high standards and striving for constant improvement.

Our overall occupancy at Sopra Mare is the highest on the island for two bedrooms. Guests expect and receive the best in quality, attention to detail from my excellent staff who have been providing service year after year at Sopra Mare.

NOTE: If you're seriously about staying I recommend reservations at least six to twelve months prior to your vacation dates. WE RENT UP VERY EARLY WITH MANY RETURNING GUESTS

We had a wonderful time at Sopra Mare for 10 fun filled days. The views at Sopra Mare were 2nd to none! Every night we left the doors open in the bedroom - the breezes and sound of the ocean were so relaxing. As vacation rental owners - we were impressed by Mike’s quick responses and help for our last minute trip. Everything in the place was neat, clean and up to date.
Colleen - Mike’s property manager - was also great and extremely informative.
If you have the opportunity to book this place or Mike’s other property - you will not be disappointed.
Thanks again Mike for a great time and your help.....

We made an excellent choice when we booked this house. It was the perfect house for two couples who, in addition to enjoying the island activities, liked to hang out at the pool, watch the action on the ocean (the cruise ships glowing at night were great), and cook our meals after a fun day. There are many positives to Sopra Mare. After a long day of travel from the western U.S., Mike had dinner waiting for us at the house. No rush to a restaurant or store, just start relaxing! The views are outstanding and the location is convenient to everything. Mike responds to your emails quickly. Be sure to read the letter he sends you when you book the house as it has lots of helpful information. Also, be sure to read Mike’s book “Keep Left.” It gives you some wonderful insight into the island. We recommend the house to you....and ourselves as we are already looking at our calendars to schedule our next visit.

We enjoyed the week of June 7th at the beautiful Sopra Mare. We were absolutely overcome by the breathtaking and panoramic ocean views. The villa is sited perfectly to catch the tropical breezes and we very much enjoyed the outside pool, terraces, and balconies. In fact, we found ourselves outside for the majority of our stay! The house is perfectly equipped with everything we needed. Colleen, the property manager, was so welcoming and while we didn’t need to call on her, she made herself available to us 24/7. The owner is incredibly responsive and responsible as well. You cannot go wrong at Sopra Mare! If you are looking for true privacy, relaxation, and beauty, this is your spot!

We just got back from a week at Sopra Mare. Mike was professional and easy to work with. The house was the perfect layout. Open dining/living/deck area overlooking the pool (convenient for watching kids in the pool while parents sit on the deck), 2 bedrooms right across the hall from each other (again, especially convenient for families), laundry on the main floor, beautiful kitchen, great Bose portable Bluetooth speakers. But the best feature was the view - there’s a wall of windows overlooking the sea - magnificent. You’ll love it.

We spent a week at Sopra Mare. The owner, Mike, was easy to work with before our arrival, responding quickly to emails. The home is clean, comfortable, open, light and has spectacular views, including sunrises and sunsets. We loved sleeping with our door wide open to the sound of the surf and with warm breezes washing over us. If you get tired of the beaches or want a late night dip, the pool awaits. The kitchen is well stocked and the owner even provided food for our first meal. All-in-all a fabulous experience and we highly recommend Sopra Mare.

Our 7th visit to St. John and our first stay at Sopra Mare was a highly anticipated trip and Sopra Mare did not disappoint. Mike and Colleen were fantastic to work with from start to finish, making our planning and arrival a breeze. St. John is a wonderfully beautiful island, with breathtaking beaches and eclectic shops and folks to match. We have always rented villas for our visits and Sopra Mare has quickly moved to the top of the A-rated list. The villa is beautiful, wonderfully maintained and the views are picturesque to say the least. There are a couple of things I’d like to mention that set Sopra Mare above the rest. Number one, the driveway. You might think this insignificant, but trust me, some of the driveways on the island are not for the faint of heart. Sopra Mare provides and easy in, easy out flat driveway (relatively unheard of on the island) that makes for a comfortable arrival/departure, day or night. Number 2, the pool! This was our very first rental that we actually used the pool. Most villas have one, but they are ice cold this time of year. Not Sopra Mare. The water temps were 84 degrees our entire stay and it was magnificent. To come in from a day at the beaches and have the opportunity to float, relax and gaze at the sunset was an absolute highlight. And an added bonus, the fancy in pool lighting made night swimming an experience.

I have already begun throwing coins into our St. John jar for our 2016 visit and Sopra Mare will definitely be our final Caribbean destination from here on out.

Thank you Mike!!

We arrived on STJ on 8/15, and enjoyed our stay at Sopre Mare. Prior to our visit, the owner (Mike) was quick to respond to our questions, and offer advice, etc. The property manager (Colleen) was also quick to respond to questions we had while on STJ. Customer service is top-notch, especially the added bonus of having a meal ready for you on your first night. That was a very nice touch given we were exhausted from a full day of travel. The villa - met our expectations, was comfortable, and was a great place to relax after a day at the beach. Fully furnished with all your basic needs. The neighborhood is quiet. The location is very convenient. The evenings were very pleasant with the views and sounds of the ocean. Sitting on the porch or balconies at night was a great way to end the day. My daughters enjoyed the pool in the evening as well. The king bed was very comfortable and we slept great. Rooms have A/C and cool down very nice. The views are very nice and add to the ambiance of the villa. We spent most of our days either on the beach or taking a boating trip, thus, after a long day, it was great to come back to the villa and relax... We were very pleased with our stay at Sopra Mare and would highly recommended it. We will stay here again when we return. Overall, fantastic villa!!

My family and I arrived in St. John, exhausted after a long day of travel including plane, taxi, ferry and rental car. It was wonderful to find a dinner waiting for us. The house [Sopra Mare] was perfect. Just a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean. So conveniently located, only minutes to town. We spent each day exploring the island, going to different beaches (snorkeling with the turtles, rays and fish of every color shape and size). Skinny Legs for a late lunch one afternoon, happy hour in town the next. Eat in or dine out, it was all so wonderful and relaxing. Mike and Colleen were fantastic and so responsive to our questions.
