“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!
“A little slice of paradise!”
When we were deciding on a rental in St. John I was fixated on having a great view...I can't imagine there's a much better view paired with a beautiful and clean house on the whole island! The pictures can't possibly do it justice. We couldn't stop taking pictures in hopes of capturing it the best we could. The house is very clean and well-equipped. We were able to eat some dinners in, using both the grill and the stove. We had Meredith at St. John Provisions shop for food for us and stock the house before we got there so that we didn't have to go back out once we got in the first night. Very convenient! The kids loved the pool. The beds are super comfortable and it seems that our host had thought of everything we might need - soap, shampoo, hair dryers, beach towels, chairs and coolers, etc. Our favorite beach was Cinnamon Bay since we were able to rent paddle boards and skim boards for the kids. All around it was an awesome vacation. Thank you, Michael!!
“Simply the best”
We have visited St John many times and this is our 3rd villa rental. Honestly, the view was the best. The villa was an easy drive from town and spotless. We were impressed with the top notch quality of all three bedrooms. Three bathrooms and all were enormous and elegant. But the best was sitting on the large terrace with friends sharing dinner and the days adventures. Great for children too! Come get me! I don't think I can wait another year.
“Amazing from Sunrise to Sunset”
Renting this villa for a week is a 'check' in the bucket list. To wake up every morning to an amazing sunrise over the Caribbean waters to ending the day looking up at your own personal planetarium, it's something you should do if you have the opportunity. If you are seeking relaxation, privacy, and a nice home - this is great choice. The home is in a great location in St John - 10 minutes to Cruz Bay and a short drive to the North Shore and Coral Bay.
“Private, peaceful, stunning views!”
This is our third trip to St. John, and our first stay at Palm Vista. The Villa is beautiful - the view exceeded our expectations. Michael met us at the ferry and escorted us on the very exciting trip to the property. He is a wonderful host with great attention to detail, providing information on local restaurants, shopping, and provisioning services. Our favorite moments were watching the sunrise over the National Park, and enjoying our evening meal on the veranda as the sun went down. The location provided us with a peaceful, private retreat to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We are already planning a return trip to Palm Vista next year. If you are considering this Villa for your St. John vacation, you will not be disappointed.
“This is truly paradise!”
The view from here is beyond any expectation, whether at sunrise/sunset or at night, the star gazing is something I've never seen. The pictures of the villa do not do it justice! It was spectacular! It's beautiful, spacious and peaceful. The villa is beautifully designed and decorated. Michael has thought of every little detail to make your stay so wonderful and easy. We spent my husbands 40th Birthday here with 4 great friends. Truly a getaway from it all! This was our first time to St. John, but certainly not our last to Palm Vista!
A short ride from the ferry up a winding road, a quick turn, and voila . . . paradise! First, the views of the bays and hills below are absolutely spectacular and can be seen from pretty much every part of the villa. The photos on the website don't begin to do it justice. We were surrounded by beauty and privacy from the main rooms of the villa, the bedrooms below, the pool tucked into the hillside and the beautiful covered veranda. There's really no need to go any place else. But if you do want to venture around St. John (and seriously, you do), Michael is an excellent host. He lives next door and can help you out with anything you need including excellent recommendations for restaurants, bars, beaches, and things to see and do. We will be back! This place is what dreams are made of!
“Wonderful place to stay when visiting St. John!”
Palm Visita is absolutely beautiful. The view is amazing with three gorgeous bay's below you. The villa is very well kept, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Michael has it stocked with everything you would need for the beach and the pool. We visited in July with 3 children ages 13, 11 and 10 months. The drive into town is very easy and quick to both Cruz Bay and the beaches. Michael is a wonderful host. He lives in the cottage next to the property and can answer any questions and provide any advice that you would need. Everyone had a fantastic and relaxing time thanks to Palm Vista offering both the comforts of home and a memorable vacation experience. He knows the island well and is very helpful and friendly. We plan to return soon and will defiantly stay here again!
Our stay at Palm Vista was outstanding! The villa has great appeal and the views from the villa are just to die for. The place is well appointed and has all the required amenities. At check-in, the owner/property manager will take you through the villa and provide information about St, John's. Be sure to ask for restaurant and beach recommendations. With recommendations in hand we toured the entire island and enjoyed new location every day and experienced great food and great beaches. During our last day we took a boat trip to The Baths, Virgin Gorda... well worth the trip. We rent Caribbean villas on a yearly basis, I highly recommend Palm Vista!
This villa is about 10-15 minutes outside of Cruz Bay and, while it is a bit of a climb (all paved roads)to get to it, it is well worth the effort! The views are spectacular. It is a very comfortable villa, not huge, but big enough. You will find yourself outside most of the time, either on the deck enjoying the views or in the small but lovely pool. Your host, Mike, is sincerely interested in his guests having a great time. He lives next door and manages to attain that perfect place between being available and giving his guests plenty of privacy. Highly recommend this villa, especially if you like a great view!
