High up on the hill overlooking beautiful Fish Bay, is a lovely yellow villa with light purple shutters. Welcome to Daffodil Villa, a lovely three bedroom three and half bath home, nestled hillside in upper Estate Fish Bay, on St. John's south shore. A haven for peace and privacy.
The wide spacious deck and swimming pool overlook the Bay and beyond. The pool is and is 22 X 14 only 5 foot deep in the middle and about 4 feet deep around the edges. Very people friendly for everyone and of course is designed with the panorama in mind. Four reclining lounge chairs and two pool floats are available for relaxing by land or water.
Also available is an outdoor dining table for six for enjoying lunch on the covered patio or dining under the stairs. Under the bamboo covered trellis a comfortable cushioned sofa, two chairs & ottomans for you to relax and gaze out to the spectacular south shore view.
Every room at Daffodil Villa affords dazzling ocean views. Come experience the magic of Daffodil Villa! All attempts to duplicate the view, which is a full 180 degrees from sunrise to sunset, have been thwarted. But when you reach the top of the villa's personal “Stairway to Heaven” this view will take your breath away.
The light-filled great room is bright and airy, decorated with high end furniture and queen pullout, modern art prints, rattan end tables and coffee table. Over the entertainment center is a large wall hanging, hand made in Afganistan. Recently added is a 42″ LG – LCD Flat Panel TV with Expanded Digital Cable. Also included is a Magnavox DVD, as well as a collection of CD's, DVD's and an assortment of paperback books for your viewing and listening pleasure. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. A big breakfast bar area with seating for three, track lighting and a large window above the sink to gaze out to the ocean. Over the bar you will notice a large, commissioned oil showing the view of Fish Bay as interpreted by San Antonio born artist Bruno Andrade, who has shown in galleries all over the county. Just off the kitchen is the laundry room which includes a washer and dryer for guest use.
Two dining tables are available on the expansive pool deck. Enjoy dining by day or night. One large round table with comfortable cushion seating on the sun deck under a beautiful wood trellis or a rectangular table under the covered veranda. This gives you the choice of dining in the sun or shade. There is also a gas grill for cooking all your Caribbean delights!
This villa has two equal master suites. The Sunrise Suite which faces east and the Sunset Suite which faces west. Each bedroom is located on either side of the great room area, to afford maximum privacy for couples or great for families with children as both bedrooms are housed under the same roof. Sliding glass doors from either bedroom access the deck and pool areas.
The Sunrise Suite includes a mahogany and seagrass queen size bed with heavenly mattress. A comfortable sitting chair for reading or relaxing, a three drawer dresser, air conditioning, a large ceiling fan, telephone, large closet for all your Caribbean attire and multiple windows to feel the breezes that flow from the east. Matching two drawer night stands with wall mounted lights on each side as well as a 32″ Panasonic flat screen TV with Expanded Digital Cable built in DVD player and iPhone, iPad charger with auto sync time. The Sunrise bathrooms is designed with a floating vanity to make it appear even larger. Inset into the dark blue tile are specially made, hand painted sinks in the Talavera style, a type of majolica earthenware which was introduced by the Spanish, but has its origins from the time of the 9th century. The bright colors are reflective of the Caribbean islands themselves. Shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the shower are complimented with a sink soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and hair dryer for your convenience. The showers are open to the air and designed so you can appreciate the view, the breeze and the wonderful sounds of the island.
The Sunset Suite faces west to take in maximum light and sun exposure. This suite contains a lovely rattan four poster queen size bed, with heavenly mattress for the ultimate nights sleep. Matching rattan night stands with 2 drawers each, wall mounted lights on each side allow for sleep or read time together or separately. A sitting chair for relaxing or reading, air conditioning, a large ceiling fan, telephone, three drawer dresser, a large closet for all your island wear and multiple windows to take advantage of our cooling tradewinds. This suite also includes a 32″ Panasonic flat screen TV with Expanded Digital Cable, built in DVD player and iPhone, iPad charger with auto sync time.

My Husband & I stayed at Daffodil on our last trip to St John. We needed to make a villa change half way through our week & that's when we found Daffodil! We loved everything about it. The view & pool deck really won us over. The house was very comfortable & bright & meet all of our needs. Kathy was so helpful & was great to work with. We've already booked our next trip to Daffodil in 2012.
Thank you so much for your review of Daffodil Villa, I hope that your stay in 2012 was as good as 2011. I am sorry for whatever happened in 2011 that made you make the switch! Forgive us for just now submitting a response to your review, we were unaware we could respond to your review. We very much appreciate your review though. We hope you can come join us soon though! Until then, follow us on FB and Insta to keep this beautiful island in your thoughts!
Thanks so much,

“A quiet place with great view”
Left on 07/08/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | brwernerReviewed Jul 8, 2010Stayed Mar 2010
180 degree view to the south, with portions of sunrises and sunsets. No neighbors to speak of. Very well maintained villa, with the only negative on furnishings being very soft beds. Great for a undisturbed getaway, as long as you don't mind the drive from town and the beaches.
It sounds like you enjoyed your visit to Daffodil Villa! This villa really does have some spectacular views. I am sorry if the beds were too soft, I hope that it was not a source of discomfort for you. We have had other guests tell us they are the most comfortable beds they have slept on in a long time, I guess its like the sleep number beds, you just never know what may be comfortable for someone. We hope to have you back down soon, to Daffodil Villa or one of our other villas! We are sorry we didn't respond sooner, we were unaware we could respond to our reviews! Until you make it back to the islands follow us on insta or FB to keep this beautiful island in your thoughts!

“Little Piece of Paradise”
Left on 04/02/2010 for a stay in February 2010 | Miss. SnigginsReviewed Apr 2, 2010Stayed Feb 2010
Daffodil Villa is a gorgeous little property, just as comfortable and secluded as it looks on its website. The spacious kitchen is wonderfully equipped; the sheltered patio dining table has a fabulous view; why would you bother going out to dinner? The brisk little plunge pool wakes you up in the morning and provides a refreshing cool-off after you return from snorkeling and before you take your nap. Beds are comfy; bathrooms are beautiful; great room is airy and bright. Outside, humming birds zip around the brilliant flowering shrubs, and a family of kestrels perches in the trees on the hill above the house. Bring your binoculars! We adore this charming place. Caveats: As with many St. John properties, you MUST have 4-wheel drive to navigate the narrow, dubiously paved roads and steep driveway. Water pressure is not great and there are screens-only windows that let the breezes waft through the bathrooms, so showering at Daffodil can be a really cool experience, in all senses of the word. But those are small prices to pay for a stay so close to paradise.

“Clean, bright villa with some drawbacks”
Left on 06/30/2009 for a stay in April 2008 | PeteReviewed Jun 30, 2009Stayed Apr 2008
We have stayed at Daffodil three times...in fact, three years in a row.
Pros: It is clean and bright. The views of Fish Bay, the Southern part of the National Park and Reef Bay are amazing. The A/C works great, if that matters to you. We also liked that it was easy to lock the villa when going into town. Actually, we really like the villa itself.
Cons: The pool and the pool area. Due to the tradewinds, the pool never seemed to get warm enough to use. We are pool people, so that was a bother. The pool deck is, well, barren. We used to stay at Unicorn, Daffodil's downstairs neighbor. While it had its own issues, the pool area was full of flowers. We missed that lushness at Daffodil. Lastly, the owners really should consider putting a hot tub on the pool deck. The deck area where they have the round table that no one uses would be ideal.
Thank you for review, and let me start off by apologizing for our incredibly delayed response. We were just made aware that we are able to respond to our reviews. We appreciate your feedback so much and are so happy you liked the villa. Daffodil does have a pool heater, so we hope that it was operational during your stay. In the event that anything was uncomfortable about your stay we want you to always let us know, it is incredibly important to us that you have the best stay possible. We hope that you give us another opportunity to have another experience with both the Island Getaways management and maintenance team as well as Daffodil Villa. Since your stay, the villa has had several upgrades and improvements, though, I regret, they do not include a hot tub. We have added an ADT alarm though! :)
We hope to hear from you soon!
