PHOENIX BY THE SEA is located on the hillside above Rendezvous Bay on the South shore of St. John and offers unforgettable views of the Caribbean Sea. The villa is very private, yet only about a 10 minute drive to the main town of Cruz Bay and 5 -10 minutes further on to the world-renowned beaches on the North shore of St. John.
Enter your Caribbean-style tropical retreat through a gated entrance and down a stairway lined with native stone walls to the fully air conditioned great room featuring comfortable seating areas, gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar and dining room with seating up to 6. The ocean-side sliding doors in the living and dining areas lead to the large upper deck for enjoying the ocean views by day and the magnificent star field while relaxing in the Jacuzzi at night. The gourmet kitchen includes everything you need for preparing snacks for the beach or dining at home. A BBQ and dining area for 6 is located on the upper deck for enjoying the views while you grill your meal and dine alfresco.
The master suite with king bed and a second bedroom with king bed (convertible to 2 twins) are accessed through a sliding glass door from the great room to an exterior covered veranda lined with a native stone wall and lush tropical vegetation. Both bedrooms are air conditioned with en suite baths and feature Cable TV, DVD, and sliding glass doors leading to the upper deck. A queen size sleeper sofa is located in the great room.
Stairs from the upper deck lead to the lower pool deck with its equally incredible views. Enjoy the refreshing in-deck pool or sunbathe on comfortable loungers on the lower deck. The third air conditioned bedroom is also located on this level and features Cable TV, DVD, an en suite bath with walk-in tiled shower, and two walls of screened sliding glass doors to the deck which provide dramatic panoramic vistas of the Caribbean Sea.

What a beautiful, perfect house and location on Rendezvous Bay! Our 2 week stay was wonderful - we hated to leave. CimmaronSt.John was a wonderful, attentive mgmt. co. whose personnel were friendly and informative. The house is terrific, beautiful furnishings and what a lovely view! Breezes kept the house cool every night, so we never had to use a/c. We enjoyed every moment spent on the decks, pool and hot tub; the great gas grill was used nightly. There is an abundance of outdoor furniture too, and beach chairs, towels and coolers are available. A mid-stay housecleaning was included in our 2 week stay, and that was so nice. A great washer and dryer was so convenient to have, too. All in all, this was a perfect rental for us and we can only hope to return again, not only to St. John but to Phoenix By The Sea!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

My husband and I stayed at Phoenix by the Sea with another couple. This property is lovely, but I wouldn't recommend it to people who have problems with stairs. It was perfect for us though! We used the upper bedrooms on the deck with the hot tub. Both bedrooms were nice - we wished they had been a little more luxurious.
Overall, it was a great property and a great value!

We were lucky to be able to spend a week at Phoenix By the Sea--a beautiful house with spectacular views. The renovated, fully air conditioned (not that we needed it) house overlooks Rendezvous Bay, with its unspoiled turquoise waters. The house has a fully renovated kitchen (including all new appliances), hot tub on the upper deck, small pool on the lower deck, and those million dollar views from every room. The house is situated a short drive from Cruz Bay, so shops and restaurants are minutes away. We particularly liked Morgans Mango for dinner and Sun Dog Cafe for lunch. Of course, being on St. John, we did not get to spend nearly enough time relaxing at the house, as we drove around the island to its many amazing beaches.
The house was spotless when we arrived. The property managers (Cimmaron in Cruz Bay) were available to answer any questions and help with booking activities. St. John was everything that we expected and even though it was spring break week, the beaches were pleasantly uncrowded. Driving on the island (we had a car) was not too bad if you just take your time. If you didn't have a car there were many taxis taking people around the island, stopping at all of the best beaches. If you have binoculars don't forget them; the night sky was also quite impressive.
