“A Wonderful Stay, One of Many at Calypso Del Sol”
My wife and I have stayed at Calypso Del Sol a few times now, we love it there and we suspect you will too. We just returned from beautiful St. John after a late season two week stay in September. Calypso is a great villa, whether it's just for the two of us or if we bring family or guests. You'll love the comfort and scenic views from the well appointed living room and kitchen and each bedroom. We particularly enjoyed the patio's -- watching the sunset with a refreshing and drink and good company or the view over the bay with a cup of coffee in the morning. Whether you just want some down-time reading your favorite novel ( I read Grisham's " The Racketeer) by the pool or you want to enjoy a day at any number of beautiful beaches, anyplace you want to go is just a short drive from Calypso's front door. I also was able to stay connected online ( yes, I had to work-a little) with the WiFi available. Our thanks to Nancy and Ernie who were available instantly if we had any problems with anything. We've been to many popular vacation spots in the Caribbean, but because of St. John's proximity within the Usvi's -- from your beach chair on many of St. John pristine beaches, you'll have an almost surreal view of near-by islands, many of which are a short dingy-ride away, other's you can visit by any number of easily available sailing charters. Calypso Del Sol would be a great choice for experiencing all that St. John has to offer.
“Dreamy Jungle Hideaway”
First, Calypso del Sol was so comfortable. Everything was there that we needed. It was a jungle hideaway with a dreamy view and plenty of privacy. I liked the place better every day of our stay. The location was just right - close to the activity of Cruz Bay yet out of the fray. We loved the iguanas. They were as curious as we were. If we sat quietly by the pool, here they'd come down the trees to get a better look. If we were on the top deck, here they'd climb up the trees to get a better look. One three-foot long one came onto the pool deck while we were sunning. Loved him. The first night, something in the jungle was very noisy and upset through much of the night. We guessed Raptor or wild monkey. We later decided that we had disturbed the iguanas by moving into the house, and then the next day they, or whatever it was, calmed down and were used to us. On Thanksgiving Day, we snorkeled at Trunk Bay and had dinner at Caneel Bay Resort. Susie recommended it for lunch. She said the buffet lunch was worth the $30. We thought dinner might be $50, try $80 per person! Still, it was another incredible setting on the water and we actually got to have turkey on Thanksgiving. I would say that our favorite part of the trip was exploring the absolutely white beaches and turquoise water of the bays and then retiring to our lovely place each evening to relax, swim in the pool and watch the sun go down. We read and caught a little football, too. The best snorkeling that we found was at Salt Marsh. For me, the best restaurant setting and food was Lucy's. The Grouper lunch plate won. We were in search of the next fried Grouper most of the trip, it seems. Do you know that neither of us bought one souvenir? My mosquito bites and my suntan still linger though. I especially like the suntan. We loved our time and we were happy that we chose Calypso. It was pretty perfect for us. Thank you to Sally for superior customer service and being so accommodating.
“The Perfect Vacation at Calypso del Sol!”
Our family just recently returned from our vacation to St. John, where we spent 9 nights at Calypso del Sol. The vacation was fantastic, and we attribute that largely to our wonderful stay at Calypso del Sol. From the beginning we received a lot of help and information from Sally (one of the owners). She played an intricate part in helping us to plan our vacation, even after we had booked her place. Once on the island, their contact Nancy was easy to reach, pleasant to talk to, and a big help. There were 6 adults (3 couples) in our group and we fit very comfortably. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and the accommodations were very nice (spacious, clean rooms and huge bathrooms with double sinks in all). There is a lot of outdoor space at the house, with decks wrapping around both levels. They have very nice furniture and we enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs in the morning eating our breakfast and drinking coffee outside, we would have meals in the screened in porch, and utilized the grill for cooking in often! While we enjoyed travelling around the island to explore the different beaches, we also very much enjoyed just relaxing by the pool at the house. The pool is pretty large (especially in comparison to some of the pools at other homes), and there were enough lounge chairs and space for all 6 of us to spread out around the pool. It was a nice alternative to having to travel to the beach. The location is very convenient to the market, shopping, restaurants, beaches, bars etc. It is close to everything and easy to get to and from. We would highly recommend staying at Calypso del Sol for any group or family that is looking for comfort, relaxation, and convenience!
“Had an unbelievable time - marvelous experience.”
The house is in an incredibly beautiful spot, and St. John is the closest thing to paradise we have ever seen. If you like a relaxed atmosphere with remote beaches and water so clear it is hard to believe (fantastic snorkeling) then this is a place not to be missed. The house itself is beautiful, pleasant appointments, great amenities. It was a very comfortable stay for 4 people, seems it would be equally so for 6.
This was our second stay at Calypso del Sol and the first time we were there with our three adult children. We found Calypso a perfect home-away-from home. Perched over Chocolate Bay, it is beautifully sited morning, noon and night for lovely and interesting views. The pool and the porches were favorite spots for relaxing, reading and talking. The bedrooms and the downstairs porch offer privacy while the main floor offers space for everyone in shared or separate activities. We enjoyed sunning, eating, hiking, snorkeling and generally exploring St. John. It was a perfect retreat for our family at a time when the beauty and peace of Calypso was much needed, an oasis from which we returned restored and refreshed.
“Relaxing Villa Retreat”
We had a wonderful stay at Calyspo del Sol Villa. Wonderful house, caretakers, and owners. Would definitely recommend this villa to all!
“Fantastic villa - great location and wonderful view!”
Calypso Del Sol is a fantastic villa with great views inside and out. The porches are amazing and the large pool was so relaxing. The beach chairs and the cooler were great to take to the many beaches on St. John. The location is so convient to Cruz Bay and the market, and yet it is very quiet and private as well (can't see your neighbors at all). The villa inside was very clean and nice, and we particularly enjoyed the great view from the master bedroom when waking up in the morning! Also, the bathroom is big and the shower is huge, with a lot of water pressure - wonderful! Everything about this villa is fantastic, and we hope to return some day!
“Planning to come back!!”
My husband and I, our two children, and my parents had an absolute dream vacation at Calypso del Sol. The amenities are what you would find at home, too many to list, every comfort imaginable with an exquisite view and a very pleasant and helpful property manager. While it was a great vacation with children, the house can very easily accomodate three couples. St. John is a magical island and we were very happy to have found such a perfect house.
“Paradise within Reach - add on”
Add to Carol's comments that I was the designated driver. It was really convenient to Cruz Bay, the local markets and as a center for day trips. Cruz Bay had really good food and the best looking dress ever for my granddaughter (4 at the time). The house is 2 level, spacious, well laid out, outfitted & landscaped. The house elevation provides light breezes and an excellent photo platform. The bigger the lense zoom range the better. I caught amazing cloud formations, the bay, the flowers & birds, the colorful sail boats and cruise ships, all from the veranda. I especially enjoyed watching the unique hummingbirds close up from the veranda- irridescent with spiked head feathers.
“Paradise within Reach”
From the time we arrived in St. Thomas until we left our stay was fantastic. We were met by a jovial, entertaining driver who delivered us to the Red Hook ferry. Once in Cruz Bay, we were met by the rental manager who helped us get our rental car and then took us to the Villa. What a joy to step into a relaxing, beautiful setting. From the wine and cheese and flowers to the refreshing swim in the pool, our stay was outstanding. The appointments in the kitchen enabled us to eat at the "Villa Restaurant" and enjoy many of the local cuisine. How restful to come home from a day at the beach or sightseeing, take a dip in the pool and then relax on the porch with a cool drink and light refreshments. The beds were comfortable and so we enjoyed a good night's sleep. The same driver met us when it was time to leave our paradise. Since we had some time to kill in St Thomas he introduced us to his favorite restaurant and we were able to shop without lugging our suitcases around. We have recommended Calypso del Sol to many friends. We hope to return again soon.
