I'm out of words to describe this place!! I never been to the Caribbean before, so the blue shades made such an impact! So much life! About the villa, I can't thank enough for having chosen such a nice place for our stay! The pool area is amazing, the kitchen is fully equipped, the beds were so comfy, the balcony had such a view, and a cool breeze! Just amazing! Randle is the most amazing host you can get for your stay, he is such a nice guy, kind, helpful.. he gave us many tips for the best beaches, the not so touristic ones as well, we became very close and had a great time together! Wishing everyone that stays at Kamabesu can have the same level of fun and happiness we did! Cause it was just great! We can't wait to come back! ❤❤❤

Great villa with wonderful views, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and plenty of room. The pool area was very relaxing as well as the flowers and greenery all around us. Location was ten minutes to Cruz Bay and maybe 15 -20 minutes to beautiful beaches! The caretaker on site was never an issue and we hardly knew he was there. He was great picking us up at ferry, taking us to car rental and then to the house! Would definitely recommend Kamebesu to family and friends!

The host canceled this reservation 159 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Response from Katie:
This was canceled by Shannon's request as she did not want to incur the fees associated with her initiating the cancellation. Now that I know I get punished as a host initiating the cancellation, I will not likely grant that request again. Please know that airbnb has strict cancellation fees and other punishments for both renters and hosts (as a host, making dates unavailable on your calendar if you cancel a reservation, for instance).

We had a terrific stay over Christmas at Kamabesu Villa with extended family. The villa and the site of the villa are amazing. The neighborhood is peaceful and out of the fray, while still a short drive to everything. Kitchen was well stocked, beds super comfortable, and the deck(s) wonderful for lazing around. Loved that the house had homey touches like book and DVD (and sunblock!) collections. You can harvest a little aloe and lots of limes from the beautiful grounds. Many thanks to Katie and Randle for a vacation to remember.

We had a fantastic stay at Kamabesu! The caretaker Randle is very informative, responsive and welcoming - he was the perfect host for us and quickly helped us whenever needed. The view from the main house is stunning. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood which definitely requires a car to get into town, but is not too far tucked away to be considered inaccessible. They had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay and enjoy our relaxing vacation. The only "issue" was that an air conditioning unit in one of the bedrooms was not working. Randle provided a few fans for the inconvenience. Cell service is basically non-existent here - FYI - (though they do have wifi) but that just made us take some much needed time away from our devices! Lots of love in this family home. Thanks, Katie!
