The Cividinis at Sunset on St John.
Claudia Cividini purchased this villa in 2003
St John is one of the most magic places in the world. The weather, the water, the people...just unforgettable and beautiful.
Breezy, comfortable, close to town, great views, affordable, clean, bright, very private.
Met Winnie at the dock. She was the best/nicest/genuine person we met all week. Simply adorable. She took time to take us to our car rental and then we followed her to the house. She as just so funny and sweet! The driveway was straight up. She said if you hit the mountain turn left. The house itself had heavy doors. The breezes blow them shut loudly. The two master bedrooms were beautiful. Only one had a master bath, the other had a bath just outside in the hallway, which also had a door to the pool area. We had many Iguanas in our trees, never once getting on our deck, but they were awesome to watch. They fought occasionally and fell out of the trees. We ordered 2 pizza's the first night, a 6 pack of beer, some wings, and some pop and bill was $108. Whew.
We bought water, if you can - get water the first night you're there. Ask your guide to stop at Dolphin and pick up 10 minutes worth of water, rum and food for a night. We didn't do that - and we wish we would have. We packed coffee and other basics. You must have snacks for sitting on the deck. The deck is beautiful and quiet. We saw no one when we were there. We heard laughter from a deck a little ways away, but saw no one. The house itself is equipped nicely. Good pots and pans, good dishes and glassware, many towels, beach towels and beach chairs and coolers when you go to Cinnamon or Trunk or my favorite Maho. They are good chairs. The first floor bedroom is outside down the steps. There are 2 twin beds with patio doors onto a nice patio area. And it has a bathroom. There is also a workout room with a futon for another sleeper. The washer dryer area is down there too. I loved the high ceilings. The pictures are not up to date - I saw no patio furniture like shown. But there was plenty of good furniture there. The pic of the living room is not exact anymore - there is a flat screen TV there now. I loved making coffee and sitting on the deck waiting for others to wake up.
There's a beautiful view on the deck and it's fun to listen to the cars squealing on the hairpin turns after the rain.
You do need a 4 wheel drive to get here.
This was a fantastic villa our
family totally enjoyed. Outstanding view of the ocean. It
seemed remote in the pictures but when we got there,
the attractions were just within close range we almost
visited them all. The villa was huge and well-equipped.
We engaged in endless sports adventure and activities
too. It was a fun-filled vacation after all!
The villa has breathtaking views of the ocean. I went vacationed with a group of friends and we had a great time! We were able to get up in the mornings and enjoy our breakfast out on the porch with the beautiful tropical breeze with a truly unique backdrop. The driveway up to the house took some getting used to (as did a lot of roads on st. john). Catalina's distance from the downtown area allowed for us to enjoy the privacy of a secluded location without having to give up convenience of being close by.
This place was absolutely fantastic! Best vacation I've been on in so long. The house is so inviting. It rests on a mountain with a view overlooking all of the beautiful island of St John as well as the crystal clear ocean. The house has three bedrooms and two stories. We slept on the second story while the kids slept on the first. The island is beautiful and has wonderful weather. I can live there if it weren't for work. I highly recommend this charming house.
The moment we walked into the house it was enchanting. The height of the house gave it, it's antique architecture and spacious rooms made it perfect for a big family. The view was breathtaking and it was so nice outside we didn't use the air conditioning system once. I would definitely recommend this house and trip to family and friends!
We enjoyed our time at Villa Catalina very much. It was very comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful view looking toward St Croix. It was also very convenient to Starfish market complex (Sam and Jacks Deli too) and Cruz Bay. The only things that make it a 4 instead of 5 are the pool being very small and low on water, and the lack of AC in the great room. - but the bedrooms had great AC and were very comfortable. We would definitely go back and hope to soon! DO eat breakfast at Donkey Diner and DO visit all of the beaches and ruins!
Villa Catalina is located in Chocolate Hole North, St John, United States Virgin Islands, Caribbean.
