- Very Good
My husband and I just spent a wonderful week at Perelandra. The villa was beautiful -- very comfortable and clean, with a gorgeous view across the water to St. Thomas. We cooked out on the grill on the nights we didn't go out to dinner. The villa is very convenient to a nice market and close to downtown. We'd definitely recommend it!!
“Lovely hillside villa with views of Cruz Bay”
Lovely comfortable villa in the hills above Cruz Bay. Two bedrooms - one with queen bed with views of St Thomas from the bed. The other a kingside bed downstairs. We tried both rooms! Great bathrooms with safe, hairdryers, toiletries. Gas barbecue on large terrace. We counted 9 iguanas in the trees one day and many hummingbirds. Small pool where we spent a lovely afternoon. Shady spots and sunny ones. Large washer and dryer which was very appreciated. There were even binoculars to borrow as we forgot ours and great beach chairs, coolers and beach towels provided. Kitchen very well stocked. Tv, DVD player, iPod docker and best of all Wifi as we needed to keep in touch with our children during the trip. Linda was great to deal with. Don't want to leave! Highly recommended.
Response from the owner We are so glad Perelandra met all your needs. We love it and enjoy sharing it with guests like you. It's lots of fun to watch the hummingbirds, bananaquits, iguanas while sitting on the deck with coffee or a cocktail in hand.
I recently stayed 7 nights at Perelandra with my wife, 9 month old daughter, and inlaws. We had a fabulous vacation. The views are amazing and the screened in porch was wonderful in the evenings when the Mosquitos arrive. The pool was perfect for an afternoon swim as its in direct sun from midday forward. Within very short distance of downtown Cruz bay and the best market in town, Starfish. The kitchen was fully equipped to prepare any type of meal. The owner Linda was very easy to work with, I highly recommend Perelandra.
Response from the owner We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation on St. John and at Perelandra. We love our location. Being so close to town and the beaches make Perelandra a great place to stay. And I love the screen porch too!
“Fabulous place to stay!”
We were visiting St. John for a wedding and had reviewed a lot of properties before deciding on Villa Perelandra. I was very picky as we were traveling with our 3 month old. I liked Linda right off the bat; she was very accommodating and even rented a pack and play for our baby for no extra charge! She really put me at ease and I knew I picked the right place for us. The property itself is located 5 min away from Cruz Bay, which was very convenient. Emily, the property manager, greeted us at the ferry dock and took us to the property. She even checked in with us the next day to see if we needed anything. The house is beautiful, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. After a day at the beach we would relax by the pool, enjoy cool beverages (the fridge was graciously stocked with a variety of drinks) and take in the beautiful scenery. We even ate in one night and watched the sunset from the upper deck. In short, I highly recommend Villa Perelandra; the property is beautiful and the service stellar. Thank you Linda!
“Absolutely Fabulous! A great location with gorgeous views and i”
We are extremely "picky" travelers and have high expectations. I am happy to tell you that Perelandra exceeded our expectations as did St. John. The location of the home is perfect. The views from the deck are outstanding and having a kitchen, laundry and pool were bonuses. Renting a vehicle with 4 wheel drive is essential, but the roads are in perfect condition and it was fun driving the hills and switch-backs. Cimmeron gave us exceptional service as well and we would recommend them. Actually I have already recommended both Cimmeron and Perelandra to individuals I know that travel. We visited every beach and enjoyed the variety. Trunk Bay has the best sand and the underwater trail which I found to be OK. Waterlemon Cay had the best snorkeling, but there is alot of hiking and swimming involved to get there. We loved the fact that all the beaches were in coves and we snorkled in all of them. We saw rays, turtles, a Lemon shark, an eel, lots of fish (the typical ones you see in the Carribbean), and Coral. It was not the very best snorkeling we have every had, but it was adequate. I would certainly recommend Perelandra to anyone planning on visiting St. John. We checked out Caneel Bay and were really glad we did not decide on that Resort. And, although Perelandra is a 2 bedroom (we used only one and put our luggage in the other), but we did use both baths.
Response from the owner We are so glad we pleased our "picky" guests. It is what we strive for. And we really appreciate our management company Cimmaron and all they do to make our guests comfortable. They help make Perelandra what we want it to be - a beautiful villa, stocked with everything a guest would want with a great view and location.
“Stunning Villa with a View!”
My husband and I stayed at Perelandra mid-April and it was stunning! The villa was charming with beautiful decor and a warm vibe. The updated kitchen and bathrooms were wonderful with every appliance and cookware you might need for a gourmet dinner or relaxing barbecue. We ate every meal on the large terrace while enjoying the view of Cruz Bay or watching the sunset. The upstairs bedroom was airy and light-filled - some nights we left all the windows open because there was a nice breeze and when it got hotter we turned on the a/c which hardly muttered a sound! The pool was great to take a morning or afternoon dip in to cool off and simply take in the view. What is great about Perelandra is that it's so close to everything - 2 minutes by car to a few grocery stores, less than 5 minutes to all the restaurants in Cruz Bay, 10-15 minutes to beautiful beaches - yet the property was nice and secluded. We're excited to go back!
Response from the owner Thank you for this great review. It mentions everything we love about Perelandra - the location, the views, the pool and the feeling of being alone in paradise. We have added many upgrades to the villa to help make our guests even more comfortable and are so glad you had a wonderful time there. Come back soon.
“Breathtaking view, totally relaxing, very comfortable.”
Our stay at Perelandra was superb, starting with Emily (from the property mgmt. firm) greeting us at the ferry dock upon our arrival. She drove us to the car rental agency and then led us up to our villa, where she spent a good 45 minutes showing us the ins and outs of Perelandra. A bonus for us was a welcome package, which included a bottle of Cruzan rum, cheese & crackers and a few other goodies. Our six-day stay at the villa just what my wife and I needed after finishing a hectic tax season. The amenities of the villa were more than adequate. We used the outdoor grill several times and the clean refreshing pool daily. Other than backing out the steep driveway, the location of Perelandra is very convenient to downtown and just minutes away from great snorkeling spots. The best part of our stay at the villa was sitting out on the back deck early in the morning sipping a hot cup of coffee, listening to the birds singing and watching the boats come & go in Cruz Bay. The evening hours were special also, as the crescent moon shone over the water and many stars and planets could be viewed from the house. For us, the vacation at Perelandra met and in many ways exceeded our expectations.
Response from the owner We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. You will be happy to know that our latest upgrade to Perelandra was to enlarge the driveway to make it easier to enter and exit. As well, we repainted the lower bedroom, replaced all interior doors and put up a beautiful new pergola to give some shade to the upper deck. Adding new landscaping makes Perelandra even more private.
“I love Perelandra!”
Our trip to Perelandra couldn't have been any more wonderful. The weather was perfect and the house was ideal. It was amazing to spend the day at the beach, take a dip in the pool and then relax with a drink watching the sunset over the Cruz bay with views of St Thomas. Perelandra is in the perfect for visiting beaches and spending time in town. I hope to make it back soon for more fun!
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your stay at Perelandra. The sunset views and the location so close to Cruz Bay and the beaches were the reason we bought Perelandra. You are welcome back any time.
We spent a fabulous week at Perelandra! We went to a tn of beaches all over the island and then would head back to the house to watch the sunset, have another swim and cocktails! Everything was neat, clean and a real home away from home. We can't wait to go back! Movie night at Planche del Mar on Saturdays is a must! And a trip to Coral Bay and smoothies are fantastic too. We loved every part of our trip!
Response from the owner We are so glad you had a wonderful time! You'll have to come back because we are about to embark on a wonderful renovation. We are replacing the wood decks with cut coral, adding a screen porch to part of the upper deck, getting all new outdoor furniture, adding a tropical outdoor shower to the pool area, getting all new appliances and upgrading the kitchen and bathroom cabinets! However nothing could ever replace our views and sunsets. Perelandra will continue to be the perfect place to relax and have fun.
