Know Before You Go...

Marathon is ideal for two couples or a family who wants to spend a lot of time relaxing together. You can swim in the pool, sunbathe in loungers, or watch TV under the veranda; or move inside and cook together in the gourmet kitchen. It has a pretty convenient location, so you can easily access most of St. John’s attractions in a few minutes’ drive.

Marathon Villa

Marathon, St. John villa review

We had an amazing stay at Marathon Villa in January 2021. The villa is beautifully built and impeccably maintained with high end Thermador appliances, Caribbean style furnishings, extremely comfortable beds and the best view on island. Centrally located, we were 10 minutes from Cruz Bay, 20 minutes from the north beaches and everything we needed in between. Our stay was enhanced by the excellent service provided to us by Shawna Dunaway with Where To Stay, in fact, we were hesitant to stay in a villa that was not along the water, but she recommended this villa and assured us we would not regret it. She was right! Our stay was 17 days and we watched the sunset every night, from the comfort of our outdoor living area…I’ve been frequenting St John 2-3x per year since 1992 and this, by far, is the best sunset view on island. We have already booked our return trip for 2022 and have locked in the villa for 22 days!

I’ve been looking for a travel partner like Shawna for quite some time. Shawna is very responsive, knowledgeable and a joy to work with! She will be my go-to source for all my island stays from now on. 5 Stars & 2 thumbs up!

Marathon, St. John villa review

The same as last year. Marathon was wonderful - great views of St. Thomas, well equipped, and comfortable furniture. We enjoyed eating out by pool and actually only went out twice. We will come back to Marathon again.

WhereToStay is always great.

Marathon, St. John villa review

It is hard to say anything negative about this villa. It is new, clean, and modern. We felt very much at home, and you won’t find a better place on the island to enjoy the sunsets. We like it so much that we are booking Marathon again next year!

Shawna Dunaway is wonderful. She is highly professional, and she adds a lovely, personal touch. I have recommended her to my friends, and I will always reach to her for ideas on where to stay in the Caribbean. She extended herself above and beyond when we were unable to stay at the villa during our expected time. Shawna is a love, and she was very helpful, compassionate, and understanding.

Marathon was absolutely the best villa have rented in over 20 years of renting.

Marathon, St. John villa review

Great views, great layout, wonderfully furnished, nicely equipped kitchen. Because it was so well done and a great view of St. Thomas, we only ate out 3 nights.

Working with Shawna couldn’t have been better.

Fantastic Week in Paradise

Marathon, St. John villa review

We had a group of three couples visit Love City during Carnival and, besides myself, no one else had been to St. John. Needless to say, every one of us absolutely relished in the beauty of the island and the grace of the people. What made it even more special was our stay at Marathon. It was perfect for three couples, as all three bedrooms provided complete privacy, ensuite bathrooms, and spectacular views of Great Cruz Bay, St. Thomas, & neighboring islands. All three bedrooms, which are very nicely appointed, are separate from the well-organized indoor living space and kitchen. The outdoor space and associated views are breathtaking. I’m not overstating this when I say that my wife gasped when we walked through the doors. It is many times better than what is shown in the pictures. Marathon is also in a great area to explore the entire island. We took our daily drive “down and up the hill,” to explore - approximately 10 minutes to town, 20 to the north side beaches, and 30 to Coral Bay. I could go on… if you are looking for a St. John home base that is a well-appointed, fantastic space with easy access, incredible views, with an infinity pool, Marathon should be your choice! It will be ours again, God willing. Cheers!

My experience in working with WhereToStay and Shawna was nothing but fantastic. She is extremely organized, well-communicated, and provided a ton of assistance and great suggestions. I have already recommended her to a few friends and will be reaching out to her when we return - hopefully soon!
