The ongoing VRBO dustup over changing terms has prompted David Pinardi of OnIslandTimes and Stan Nicholas, of Lunazul Villa in Coral Bay to come up with a villa rental site that’s exclusively St. John.
StJohn-VillaRentals.com is just an idea right now, but the website is beautiful and they’ve already gotten feedback from the STJ Accommodations Council.
Now they need to populate it with villas.
“We believe the time is right at St. John is the right place to establish a St. John rental site, allowing villa owners and managers to break away from the large rental sites like VRBO and Flipkey,” David says.
They’ll charge a flat rate, with no commissions and to help build traffic, the subscription is half price for the first year.
Owners and mangers will communicate directly with guests, and be able to manage their own property listing and availability calendar.

This is definitely in beta mode. Owners, managers and visitors, leave David and Stan your questions and input below in comments. They’re looking for the input and they’ll read your comments.
