Other St John Rental Villas
Often times we have groups that are just a little too big for a single villa on St. John or maybe our places is just a little to big for them. We have some close friends who own villas or rental apartments that we are proud to send group referrals.
Beachfront or high up on a hillside, small or large, close to Cruz Bay (or not), there is a villa on St John just for you
We have been visiting or living on St John for over 17 years and have to say we are still as much in love with St John today as the day we first stepped foot on our island. Yes, many things have changed since that first visit but many of the things that brought us to St John have not changed…the shear beauty of the island, the beaches, the vistas, and the warmth of the people of St John. Thanks to the Virgin Islands National Park which covers over ⅔’s of St John, much of our land will be forever green.
Today there are lots (and lots) of choices of wonderful places to stay on St John. Large. Small. Fancy. Basic. Faces east to get a sunrise. Faces west to capture the sunset. High up on a hill. Walking distance to the beach.
4 Short-Term Rental Apartments
Completed in February 2019, this 2 building, 6 unit complex on Gifft Hill has been completely rebuilt inside and out after massive damage from the storms of 2017. With a new concrete base structure, walkways, staircases and sunset pool deck, their 4 short-term rental units include 2 x 2 bedroom / 1 Bath apartments with large outdoor sunset patios, 1 large studio apartment, and 1 small poolside cottage.
Calypso del Sol
Small Neighboring Villa
Calypso del Sol is just down the hill from Great Expectations and can accommodate up to 6 guests. We often recommend when we have very large groups that need additional bedrooms.
Located on Chocolate Hole Bay about 5 minutes from the picturesque town of Cruz Bay, a stay at this new, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, fully air-conditioned villa will be a vacation to remember!
Calypso del Sol has glorious water views from the pool deck and from both large, covered porches, with inviting views of Chocolate Hole and Pillsbury Sound. Enjoy gazing at the stars while soaking in the hot tub.
Coconut Hill Cottage & Tropical Treehouse
Amazing Coral Bay Views and Sunrises
Coconut Hill Cottage & Tropical Treehouse is perched on the upper east side of Bordeaux Mountain and looks over all of Coral Bay, East End, and almost the entire British Virgin Islands. The villa is made up of 2 buildings:
the upper is Coconut Hill Cottage with 2 bedrooms, a Loft, full kitchen, living room and screened-in patio and 3 bathrooms
the lower is Tropical Tree House that is connected to the main driveway by a staircase and has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom
There is a nice pool area off the main living space and they proudly installed solar power and Tesla Powerwalls to avoid any issues with island power outages.
Into the Mystic
Into the Mystic is a split complex that is never rented to more than one set of guests. The primary villa is a 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath villa for 2 people. Starting in October 2018, they now offer the lower level apartment that allows another 2 guests to bring the total 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath villa to up to 4 people.
The villa is just above Caribbean Oasis and Aqua Bistro on the southwestern edge of Coral Bay.
