SANCTUARY ST JOHN - LUXURY WATERFRONT VACATION HOME

Rendezvous Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms - Pool and Hot Tub on the beach

With ocean sounds and views from every room, you will be mesmerized by the changing colors from sunrise to sunset. All your senses will be awakened with the sights, sounds, and smells of this romantic setting. Cool tropical breezes, flowering hibiscus, orchids, palms, and unique native birds are all awaiting your visit to Sanctuary.

This sensual villa captures the essence of the Caribbean. Sanctuary features four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large gourmet kitchen, swimming pool, hot tub, and expansive decks to lounge and sun. A Zen water fountain spills over a native stone wall into the pool. A large covered veranda provides an outdoor dining experience you will never forget.

The Great Room provides an incredible view of the entire bay through a wall of sliding glass doors that open onto the 55-foot long covered veranda on the water. The stunning 20 foot long designer kitchen features a huge island with built-in cook surface and bar seating for four, custom teak cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless steel refrigerator, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, and all the appliances, dinnerware, cookware, and utensils a chef may need. A laundry room with washer and dryer is just off the kitchen.

The Great Room is also home to the entertainment center, which features 5.1 home theater surround speakers, a large TV/monitor with cable, DVD, iPod docking station, CD player and one remote control for all. Outdoor speakers are hidden on the pool deck. An extensive library of books, music and movies are provided, as well as whole house wireless internet access.

All four bedrooms are air conditioned, and feature king sized beds, attached baths, cordless phones, and covered decks on the water. One of the bedrooms is in the separate and very private Pool Deck Suite, extending the romance of villa living.

The two lower-level bedrooms are decorated in the colors of the Caribbean, and share a full bath and shady private patio. They feature king size beds, although one can be made up with two twin beds if preferred. One also features a wet bar and mini-refrigerator.

Our group was comprised of six people (two friends and two couples), between the ages of 30-41. We wanted a place where we could reconnect, be just a little rambunctious, and truly feel as though we were on vacation. Prior to this trip, I was not a enthusiast of the whole 'tropical vacation' idea, since that typically involved staying at large resorts and being subjected to crowds, children and the 'herd of cattle' treatment. Thankfully, Sanctuary St. John is the antithesis of the mainstream tropical vacation.

Sanctuary St. John absolutely gave us the best vacation getaway experience! Ed & CJ have been doing this for quite some time...and it shows. The house is situated in a sweet spot, which leaves one feeling that they're living the epitome of luxury. Waking up each morning to the swooping pelicans, hearing the waves crashing 24 hours a day, and being surrounded by all the comforts of home (including wifi, blessed be!) allowed us to detach from our lives back home and fully feel that we were a part of island life. Everything was truly clean, useable, and there was plenty of space for our groceries & belongings, allowing us to 'move in' and live.

Our first night had the clearest sky of the entire trip, and the view of the stars is everything. Sitting in the pool and hot tub each night, watching cruise ships go by, seeing the tiniest twinkle of lights from St. Croix, hearing our favorite music over the outdoor speakers...these are moments that live on well after the stay has come to an end.

St. John's many beaches are worth the short drives. On weekdays, even close to the holidays, we felt as though some beaches were there just for us. When we would encounter others, we found everyone to be friendly, respectful and just plain happy. Local life is every bit as relaxed as one might assume, but there is a variety of shopping & dining options that are within 10-15 minutes' drive, and are certainly recommended.

Yes, we're coming back. No, we wouldn't change a thing. Yes, that is saying something. If you want to put the rest of the world on a shelf, and focus on peace, restoration & comfort, this is the place to do it.

Luxury with All The Comforts of Home!

My husband and I had the good fortune to stay at this wonderful villa on a recent vacation. Having worked in the hospitality industry for a good portion of my career, I am quite picky when it comes to the places I stay while spending my limited vacation time. While Sanctuary looked wonderful before we got there, it completely exceeded expectations after we arrived.

What can I say? The view is gorgeous and while there is a certain amount of planning that goes behind orchestrating that, it really is nature at its best. The grounds, however, the structure, layout and quality of the property itself is really the thing to be discussed. You can tell that every inch of this property has been thought out and given the utmost in consideration. Each sleeping room has, what seems to be, an individualized view. The privacy you can feel within a house full of people is not often something you are granted in a property such as this. However, each space is open, airy, yet truly private - even the bedrooms connected by a bathroom on the lower level. There were a total of six of us traveling together, occupying each of the bedrooms, and when you wanted/needed to escape to the privacy of your room, you were truly able. The outdoor areas are great for lounging and the occasional meal outdoors. With the full grill, you can prepare a large meal, cook it, and then eat it all under the gorgeous tropical sky. While a good part of our days were spent snorkling and exploring the beauty of St. John, we spent almost every night taking in the clear, starry sky from either the pool or hot tub. We visited over the Thanksgiving holiday and were able to make a complete Thanksgiving feast in the fully loaded kitchen. We ate out only twice the entire time making full use of these facilities for the length of our stay. While not even realizing I'd need or want a washer and dryer during my vacation (because, really, who wants to do laundry while away?) it was a dream come true. While I packed more than enough for our trip, I welcomed the chance to clean what could before leaving for home and was able to unpack a fresh bag rather than do a bunch of laundry after arriving home.

As cliche as it may sound, this property truly was a 'home away from home'. Well, if my home was a gorgeous villa, that is. It was everything I wanted to experience in luxury, yet provided all of the comforts of home. Stay here and you won't regret it!

First Timer Success!!

This was the first time on vacation to stay in a home rental and not a hotel. It was perfection! Being away from the crowds in a secluded home was better than anything a full service hotel could have. When on vacation I want peace and quiet with a chance to see what it is really like to live on the island. This was exactly that! How can you beat enjoying a pool, followed by a quick trip to be at the beach and enjoy snorkeling, with an awesome hot tub to top it off? I’ve never felt so well taken care of by these home owners as I have been in staying other places. You can tell that they care about the property and want their guests to feel welcomed and cared for. Just to be clear – I’m going to go to St. John again. But I am only going if I can stay at Sanctuary!
