“Wonderful” Chateau Margot was perfect for a family celebration and holiday. The three seperate buildings gave privacy and comfort for the three different families on this trip. The terrace was perfect to enjoy the spectacular views and get together for breakfast and afternoon cocktails. The house is very well appointed, tastefully furnished and very quiet.

Eco Friendly Beachfront Villa

Virgin Islands National Park villa

4 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Great House and Setting” I agree with every positive comment made by others. This was our second year of staying at Reef Bay. There were 6 of us, including four teenage girls. There is so much living space! The design is remarkable. Our days were full: from hiking to the petroglyphs, swimming at the nearby beach (quietest scenic beach that you'll ever see), and sampling the island's beautiful north shore beaches. The house is a nature lovers dream, looking over the National Park. The owner and caretaker were always quick to answer any questions I had leading up to our visit. After arriving, we never needed help because we had no problems!

"Just For 2" Tropical Orchid Hot/Tub/SPA ~ SALE NOW

Cruz Bay villa

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“spectacular views with affordable villa” My husband and I had wonderful time in the Tropical Garden villa we rented from Jacqueline. This is not the typical rental where you pick up your key and you're on your own. Jacqueline met us after we arrived on the ferry and rented our jeep to follow her up to the villa. Her home is part of the property to which her four rental villas are connected, and everything is well kept. She was so friendly and helpful providing advice and making sure we had everything we needed. By the end of the week, we had become friends. The Tropical Garden villa has a spectacular view overlooking Great Cruz Bay, Chocolate Hole, and Heart Bay, which you can enjoy from the deck, living room and bedroom. It is on the lower level and has a secluded feeling. It has a full kitchen and a gas grill in the garden. There is a hot tub with a view that you can find at the end of the path through the tropical garden. The beach chairs and cooler that were provided were very much appreciated during our many outings to different gorgeous beaches every day. We have fond memories of waking up and seeing that incredible view and enjoying our breakfast on the deck. We also enjoyed staying in the White Seagull villa for the latter part of the trip when it was available. We would stay in either one again. Jacqueline went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. We were sad to leave but very happy to have a new friend in St. John!

Mooncottage: Most Romantic St. John Petite Luxury Villa in peaceful Coral Bay

Coral Bay villa

2 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 4

“The PERFECT Honeymoon” There truly are not enough positive ways to sum up our 10 nights at Mooncottage. From the very beginning, Brian was a tremendous help as we were researching locations to spend our honeymoon. He made sure to provide us any local "tips" we would need so that there were no surprises along the way. It's hard to trust all of the incredible review online (can Mooncottage really be THAT amazing?!) - but they are all true! The home is beautiful - pictures don't even begin to do justice to the stunning views - and the amount of space was perfect for the 2 of us. We wanted a honeymoon location where we could just relax and never feel like we were on a schedule, and Mooncottage provided the perfect accommodations for that. We spent mornings and nights just taking in all of the scenery below us, and spent our days visiting different beaches, restaurants, and bars each day. We came to embrace the (very bumpy) drive up/down the road to the house, and it's really kind of fun once you get used to it! The privacy is well worth the short extra drive -- and we loved being in Coral Bay on the less populated end of the island. We've already passed the name of the home along to a few of our friends who are looking for a special getaway -- and we can't wait to go back ourselves!

"Just For 2" White Seagull POOL SALE NOW

Cruz Bay villa

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“Spectacular View and Wonderful Hospitality!” We just returned from a wonderful 8-day stay in the White Seagull, at "Just For Two" on St. John. This was a return trip for us, having stayed there, last May, as well. We rarely return to the same location, preferring to seek new adventures. This was a rare exception and a testimony to the wonder of this place - both St. John and Jacqueline's hospitality. The room is wonderfully decorated and comfortable, with 270 degree views of the Caribbean. We overlook Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole from our windows, with views of St. Thomas from the Sky Lounge. It's amazing to wake to the early sunrise and see the ocean view, by simply sitting up in the bed. We took wonderful photos of the sunsets from the rooftop Sky Lounge and our location near the top of a mountain, overlooking the island. Jacqueline readily gave us access to her private patio, as well, providing wonderful views of Great Cruz Bay and relaxing surroundings to talk or simply play cards, in paradise! The room is well decorated with antiques and personal items. There was good Wi-Fi access and a TV with limited channels, but we rarely used them. A fireplace was available, but we can't imagine using it, except in the dead of "winter"! The room offers a small kitchenette, suitable for simple breakfasts or lunch preparation. There is access to a grill in the courtyard, as well. However, we mostly enjoyed the wonderful food at all the restaurants on the island. You definitely need to rent a car and we have had great experience with Courtesy Rental. The roads are steep, somewhat narrow and you get the challenge of driving on the left side. It's a challenge, but quickly becomes comfortable. The roads Just For Two are steep, but enjoyable. There is a back way that allows a "less steep" option, if it is rainy. Next year is our 25th anniversary and we are planning to return, yet again. It's hard to argue with perfection - especially for a milestone date.

Poi Pu St John Villa - great views & total privacy

Cruz Bay house

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Lifetime Memories” My family and friends rented Poi Pu for a week this past June. We had an amazing time. We loved the rock double shower. Several nights we cooked dinner and everyone ate out on the deck what a beautiful experience. It was also located close to some of the most beautiful beaches ever. The house was very clean, great amenities, cozy, and we were comfortable. If we needed anything we could call the property management and they were prompt to offer advice or their services if needed. It was also the little things that made our stay like the beach accessories that we were able to use instead of having to rent them daily. Those costs could have added up quickly. A beautiful home with a beautiful view. We can't wait to return. Also we were traveling with our 10 month old daughter. She took her very first steps at Poi Pu. We made lasting memories for our family.

“Week in paradise!” Our stay in the Little Palm Suite was wonderful! The suite was exactly as described in the posting and was accurately displayed in the photos. The view of Fish Bay off the deck was amazing! It was a beautiful sight to look forward to every morning. The suite was very clean and well-stocked with necessities. Both the inside and outside (grounds) at the suite were extremely well-maintained. We appreciated having beach towels and beach chairs provided for us to use for our daily trip(s) to the beaches. Michael was a wonderful host! The information he provided to prior to our trip was extremely helpful as we made our plans. He was so helpful to us during our stay as well with directions and with restaurant and beach recommendations. We enjoyed all of the restaurants that he recommended. Our personal favorites were the Sun Dog Cafe for breakfast/lunch and the Lime Inn and Fish Trap for dinner. We loved being able to eat every meal outside for an entire week! The ice cream shop at the end of Mongoose Junction was also a favorite. Our favorite north side beaches were Hawksnest (smaller and not very busy) and Trunk Bay (busier, but so beautiful and picturesque). We really enjoyed the laid-back pace on St. John and had a truly relaxing week. I really enjoyed staying a little bit outside of Cruz Bay and the location in Fish Bay was perfect. We would highly recommend Little Palm Suite! Thank you, Michael for sharing your home with us and for helping us enjoy our week in paradise!

Harbor View - Big Views & Sunsets In Cruz Bay

Cruz Bay apartment

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“Best view in the islands!” For several years now, my favorite form of relaxation at Harbor View is kicking back in the evening and watching the setting sun slide down behind St. Thomas ...while sipping away at something with a lime in it. Great location. Just a couple minute walk downhill to the ferry dock, restaurants, the Dolphin grocery and easy-going night life in Cruz Bay. Super staff at St. John Properties.

Cinnamon Stones

St. John villa

4 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 9

“Enjoy oustanding views from this totally secluded villa” My wife and I spent a week at Cinnamon Stones and we couldn't have been more pleased. The views are some of the best you can enjoy anywhere and you're totally secluded from anyone else. The modest-sized pool is on the lower level which, while not ideal, is necessary due to the slope the house is built upon, and only adds to the privacy. Lush foliage is well-maintained. The kitchen is outstanding, ideal for amateur chefs who enjoy staying in and preparing gourmet meals, which we do. It is well-stocked with many high-end items. If you like going out for dinner every night this place probably isn't for you since the road leading to the highway from the house can be challenging in the dark, moreso if it's raining. My advice, stay in and enjoy what you're paying for. My wife and I walked for exercise every morning, and due to the terrain you can get a great workout! Nice outdoor shower at the pool and the master bathroom shower is amazing, you'll have to see for yourself. No a/C in the villa may scare away some but it honestly was never an issue the entire week we were there (in June!!), great breezes and plenty of ceiling fans. Tourists from the northeast us probably can't imagine staying at a villa with no a/C since they sweat profusely above 60 degrees. This place is a gem, bring your lover and get busy!

Palm Vista: 1 of the Top 10 Villa Views in World! Over 120 FIVE STAR REVIEWS

Cruz Bay villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Comfortable and pleasant with easy days and restful nights.” We returned home with fond memories of our wonderful 10 days in St. Johns. On our arrival, we were welcomed at the Cruz Bay ferry dock by a representative of Palm Vista who guided us, after picking up our car rental, to the Palm Vista villa. All operational issues of the villa and our responsibilities were explained. The lodging at Palm Vista was perfect for what we had wished--isolated when we were there, spectacular views at all times of day, comfortable, clean inside and out, nice flowers and setting, spacious and quiet. To top that, everything worked splendidly, from the kitchen and its appliances, to the showers, to the grill, to the wireless if you were so inclined. The seemingly perilous drive to Palm Vista through the turns and up the slopes was definitely worth the few anxious moments and the courageous act was always generously rewarded. We made many trips with our rented Jeep Wrangler and snorkeled and enjoyed visiting other parts of the island and having some memorable dinners. But, returning to Palm Vista was always joined with great anticipation by all four of us for the waiting discussion, drinks, sometimes dinner, and views to pass the time and to catch some sun with complete relaxation, mostly around the pool and on the main patio. Some books were read and the nights were perfect for a restful sleep. We took a chance depending upon the website for information, and it worked out excellently. I will keep Palm Vista in mind for the next time. Of course, the picture of Palm Vista copied on the ceramic cup that we took home, will come in sight every time the cup is lifted, be it containing coffee or scotch, and it will bring back great memories of the paradise we found. All things worked out regarding travel and car rental, and we enjoyed some nice food and comfortable dining in town. We all had a great time! There is no mistake here!

Honeymoon Hikers Cottage- Coral Bay,USVI- St. John

Coral Bay villa

“Amazing Vacation Rental” I have stayed at this property owner's other rental and did not think I could top that..I was wrong! This property was just as, if not more gorgeous than her other place, Mimosa. The views were amazing and we always felt like we exploring the island, even if we never left the villa. One thing that made this great was how easy it was to talk to and work with the owner, easiest vacation I have ever planned. The place was clean and bug/dirt free. I have stayed in quite a few places around St. John and this is by far the nicest. I already booked my vacation for next winter at this property and can't wait. It is private but still has easy access to hiking, swimming, getting to town, it is just an all around great place and I cannot wait to go back. I highly recommend this rental, and I'm picky!

About St. John

About: Saint John

In the US Virgin Islands, you’ll find tiny, beautiful, and tropical Saint John. With a lush national park surrounded by white sand beaches on all coasts, endless watersports, friendly locals, a burgeoning culinary scene, shopping galore, and plenty of places to get your buzz on while relaxing – Saint John should top your list of places to visit in the coming years. Here’s a breakdown of everything you’ll need to know before you go:

History

A brief history of the island starts with sugar cane planation agriculture and the slave revolt in 1733 that left a quarter of the island’s population dead. The US bought it from Denmark in 1917, and John Rockefeller owned much of it by 1956. He donated it back to the US and it was declared a National Park, which is why most of the center of the island remains untouched and well preserved. Since then, tourism has exploded on this beautiful escape in the middle of a turquoise ocean.

Things to do

If you’re coming to Saint John and the Caribbean in general – your fun begins at the beaches. Hawksnest Beach has incredible scuba diving and snorkeling where you can see many species of fish. Trunk Bay is extremely popular, which is a good thing and bad thing. It is the most crowded area on the island, but perfect for people watching and sun bathing. Snorkel outside Water Lemon Cay where you’ll be closer to ocean life than anywhere else. Salmon Bay is a short hike away through the National Forest, and is worth the extra effort. Salt Pond Bay and Drunk Bay are two other must-visit beaches, and on Drunk Bay you’ll find eerie effigies of ‘human’ families made out of rocks, coral, and sticks left by tourists. Get to Cinnamon Bay early to ensure you’ll have access to a Jet Ski or scuba set.

Try out Maho Beach as well, a family-friendly environment with plenty to do. You’ll find boat charters all over the island for sunset cruises, deep-sea fishing, and much more adventure.

The most well known hike on the island is arguably along the Reef Bay Trail, a 4.9-mile route from Centerline Road to the beach below. The hike travels along the ruins of the Reef Bay Sugar Factory. A slightly easier hike takes you along the rocky trail on the Coral Bay side of the island. The trail brings hikers to the petroglyph pool, which features unique carvings most likely created by the Taino people, pre-Columbian islanders. The Ram Head Trail is a mountain hike that will leave you breathless, not just at the views either.

If you’re feeling wild, parasail or paraglide at one of the beaches or bays, or if you’re looking to live a bit of history, visit the Annaberg Sugar Plantation.

Transit

Even though Saint John is two-thirds national forest, that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to get around. Board a helicopter, water taxi, small charter plane or commercial airplane to jet from island to island, and there’s no passport required for U.S. citizens.

Car rentals are plentiful but remember two key things: you MUST drive on the left side of the road, and speed limits are 20mph at most. There are taxis available through three main companies – Paradise Taxi, Saint John Taxi Association, or Per Dohm’s. If you want to travel in style, book a limo through Executive One Limousines, Slimo’s, or Love City Limousines. There are also water taxis available for you.

Vitran operates air-conditioned buses over the length of the island. Buses leave Cruz Bay in front of the ferry terminal at 6am and 7am, then every hour at 25 minutes after the hour until 7:25pm. They arrive at Coral Bay about 40 minutes later.

From Saint John, it's easy to explore the rest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, as ferries and boats are constantly shuttling passengers back and forth. Ferries travel to Red Hook, Charlotte Amalie, and more leaving a few times per hour. Tickets are cheap at $5 for adults and $1 for children. If you've brought your passport along, you can also head to the nearby British Virgin Islands to enjoy an exclusive high-end holiday adventure.

Weather

Looking for perpetual summer? You’ll find it on any of the US Virgin Islands, and Saint John is no exception. The smallest and most protected island of them all experiences sunny days, infrequent showers, and gentle breezes every month of the year. Average weather during the summer season is 82 degrees Fahrenheit (though low 90s is typical too), with the winter dropping down to only 77 degrees. The gentle winds keep the weather from getting too hot or humid, and it remains just perfect, all year.

Rain showers are often short and typically occur early in the morning or at night. All day downpours over numerous days are not common. The driest months are typically February and March, and the wettest is November.

You may need to wear a jacket if you come during the winter, just a light one, for the early morning and late at night. Most of the time shops and restaurants will have AC on to combat the heat. The ocean temp is about 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so swimmers can cool off but it is not going to stop anyone from jumping in!

Keep an eye on hurricane reports before you book your trip, but they are extremely rare and even if a storm event is happening in ‘the Caribbean’ it may not be anywhere close to Saint John.

Eden Lounge
Wonderful stay!

The Eden Lounge was a perfect place for my wife and I for our 10-day stay on St. John. Cynthia provided us with everything we needed for the beach and the accommodations were perfect. The porch was perfect for us to have breakfast in the morning and relax with lights on in the evenings (and watch the lizard eat the moths the lights attracted). Close enough to Cruz Bay but far enough to enjoy the quite and nature.see more

We enjoyed our lazy mornings sipping coffee and listening to the waves. Made it tough to motivate and hit the beaches - which we did, of course. Cooking while overlooking the ocean was so serene. Will definitely stay there again!see more

Palm Vista: 1 of the Top 10 Villa Views in World! Over 120 FIVE STAR REVIEWS
Wonderful Family Vaca

We spent a fabulous week here with our adult children. First visit back to St. John in almost 20 years. Palm Vista was just as lovely as the photos and the view was awe inspiring. Perfect accommodation for 6 of us. While we felt that we had the mountain to ourselves, we were in good driving distance to Cruz Bay and the beaches. Home was clean, beautifully maintained, kitchen was very well equipped for our nights cooking in. Every detail thought out. and beautifully met. Great pool. Beach equipment and coolers. While Cruz Bay is starting to open up again, Coral Bay was still pretty much shut down. Some restaurants still struggling to get back in gear so check in with them before going on "old" ratings.see more
