About James Walgenwitt

I'm from New York City, have lived in St. John since 1997 working for Westin, Ritz-Carlton and Marriott. I love the laid back lifestyle so decided I would go into the hospitality business for myself. This is the only property I own (or have ever owned) and have been renovating it since the day I bought it (the renovations never stop, always more to do!) I get to spend loads of time with my 6 year old son, native Virgin islander; we love hiking, hitting the beach, boating and travel! I also tend bar one night a week at High Tide, come by to see me!

James Walgenwitt purchased this villa in 1999

Why James Walgenwitt chose Rendezvous Bay

After life in the Big City and the suburbs of New York, life in my neighborhood could not be any easier. For a while I rented a home closer to Cruz Bay (too close) and for a year rented a place in Fish Bay (too remote). Rendezvous is perfect: 5 minutes to Cruz Bay bars, restaurants, groceries, shopping, ferries to St. Thomas. 15 minute drive to all of my favorite beaches on the North Shore, National Park and hiking trails. Easy to catch a boat to British Virgin Islands from Cruz Bay. Quiet, safe neighborhood where I know most of my neighbors and rarely bother to lock my door or take the keys out of my car. I have a big yard I'm always gardening with lots of sun and awesome sunsets, accross the street down Boatman road are awesome views east of Rendezvous Bay and the entire South Shore of St. John, with great sun and moonrises.

What makes this villa unique

The property has 3 totally seperate units which are all completely private from one another so I have the incredible luck to get to live here in one of them. It is situated at the top of a hill so the view and the breeze is awesome!

The units are so private from one another that I rarely run into my guests unless they come by and knock on my door to get advice about where to go and what to do on their vacations. Over time I've made some great friends who come back to visit again year after year. It makes my job extremely easy caring for the property and my guests since I am on site, anything that does go wrong can be remedied right away. Then there is great sunsets from the pool, grilling out on the deck with friends, the garden filled with tropical plants and fruit trees, the easy access to town and beaches and other islands, A/C which you rarely need because of the great breezes, convenience of internet and Dish network TV...

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at the cottage and once again had a wonderful stay. We stayed eight nights this visit. We love how the cottage has everything we need in it. We enjoyed sitting in the living room in the evening after a great day snorkeling the beautiful beaches of St John. We like how the living room is screened in so we could be outside but not have to worry about bugs. It was also great having the property owner on-site. James is such a nice guy. He is there to help if you need anything. The one time we did have an issue (because of something I did) he was right there fixing it. We liked getting in the pool for a quick swim after a day at the beaches. There is also a covered area by the pool with a couch and chairs that is a good place to hang out. The driveway was easy to get into and had a nice place to turn around. It was nice having a washer and dryer. The bedroom has A/C which we did use at night. There are beach chairs, coolers, and ice packs for your trips to the beach. We have also stayed in the two bedroom villa and liked it just as much as the cottage. You can't go wrong with either property!

Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
I came to St. John for Carnival once again and had a great time. I lived on island at one time, so I am familiar with the different places you can stay. This villa is a true hidden gem. As a woman traveling alone, this villa provided complete privacy without losing the quaint island feel. The screened in veranda was fantastic as I was able to enjoy dining al fresco without any bugs. Awesome. The owners were very friendly and helpful when anything was needed. I highly recommend this villa for your next trip to St. John.

Great time, great place to stay in St.John

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a week in St. John staying at the Rendezvous Cottage with my wife and 17month old. What a great time and great place to stay. James is an amazing host, warm and welcoming. The cottage was lovely, private, and in a great spot. There is a wonderful pool with a special shallow area for little ones, as well as a great shaded area for relaxing. Great sunsets every night too. Less than 5 min from Cruz Bay, which was great to be in a nice quiet area with an incredible view, but close enough to be downtown in just a couple minutes. Another 10 minutes past Cruz Bay starts all the great beaches on the north shore. I guess the best compliment I can give is that I would definitely stay at the rendezvous Cottage again on my next trip. James, thanks for making us feel so welcome, we had a great time.

A Summer Stay in the Cottage

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I found the place attractive. The area it is located in is a short distance from the ferry. It is generally quite. The bed is firm (if you have a preference) and it was great to cook out on the gas grill. We were worried about the heat but the small A/C unit was enough to keep us cool. Mosquiteos are a problem on the island so bug spray is recommeneded. The pool is nice to jump into during the afternoon if the beach is too hot. The unit is out of the way and offers some privacy.

James and Sania provided everything we need for the stay and are a pleasure to know. James furnishes the cottage so that all you need is to drop your bags in the bedroom and start relaxing.

St. John restaurents weren't the best dining experience we had but that is OK as we cooked at the cotttage. A car is a must. It is better if you rent a vehicle for the stay on the island. Ferry service is your only choice for reaching the island or by hired boat. There are plenty of beachs to choose from on the island. You don't need to plan to go back to St. Thomas or St. Croix with the hiking and watersporting choices at St. John.

Love this little cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in all units of this house, and love the neighborhood and the landlords!!! You can cook to your hearts content or go downtown for a nice meal, and the view from the pool is wonderful. All amenities are included, and I think it is a bargain for St. John market.

Nice rendezvous for two

  • 4 of 5
If you're looking for a 5 star Westin with hot and cold running maids and room service this is not for you. If you are looking for nice accomodations with a gracious host this fits the bill. Any negatives are far outweighed by the pluses. Built into a hillside this unit can be a bit on the dark side and the bedroom is not much bigger than the bed. The kitchen is plenty large enough and fully equipped. A wide double door and two windows open fully into a large, private, roofed and screened deck that serves as outdoor dining and comfortable sitting area. The deck has a great view and usually had a nice breeze. A set of stairs outside your door brings you up to a great built-in pool with over sized deck, plenty of seating, shaded areas and again the great view. The pool is shared with another unit and the host, but is large enough to accomodate everyone. The whole time we were there no one else used the pool area. We are laid back travelers as for as we were concerned this was excellent, especially considering the price. We rated it good since there as always room for improvement. If you have great difficulty with stairs this is not for you. We would definitely go back.

Boatman Rd is a very upscale residential neighborhood adjacent to Chocolate Hole, great for walking to take in the phenomenal ocean views, and incredible cliff-side vacation homes. Very safe and low-traffic with access to the water in several spots, but very hilly! Also great trail hiking in the National Park, a short drive away.

Within the 5 minute drive to town you will pass the Westin Resort and all the grocery/wine stores (St. John Market is a 2 minute drive). It is an easy drive home from Cruz Bay after a great restaurant meal or fun in the local bars and pubs.

We are centrally located so getting to the some of the best beaches in the world is easy to do. Most north shore National Park beaches are a 15 minute drive. You can drive to Skinny legs in Coral Bay in about 20 minutes.

Notes:
It's difficult to describe how great the outdoor screened-in porch feels. You are surrounded by tropical plants and trees, with a great sunset view all the way to St. Thomas. You are outside feeling the awesome Caribbean weather but protected from the elements (and the mosquitoes), have comfortable furniture with ceiling fans and flat-screen TV and all the amenities. Many quests come back again and again for this and prefer it to the 2BR Villa upstairs.
