A perfect dream

  • 5 of 5

"Le Arc du Soleil" is an amphitheater and we had the luck to sit in the loge of it.

The "24 hour performance" begins at sunrise:

Breathtaking views with varying moods, with different colored cloud formations, rainbows, and unbelievable sounds are only "the first act".

"The prime time program" is also an optical and acoustical dream:

The twinkling stars in the firmament, the Andromeda Galaxy in the center are accompanied musically by the "St. John Tree Frog Symphony Orchestra" with the background singers "The Cruz Bay Crickets".

Piano, crescendo, mezzoforte, forte....

"The Mother Nature" is simply the best maestro!

It´s a gorgeous entertainment "Bully!" = Bravo!

We want an encore! = Zugabe, Zugabe, Zugabe!

Wir werden diesen Traum in unseren Herzen bewahren!

Thanks a lot, Servus and Goodbye!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Arc du Soleil is a place of absolute paradise! There are no words to describe its beauty. My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks there for our honeymoon, and lets just say our stay at Arc du Soleil will be hard to beat in the future! And we plan to come back as soon as we can! The villa had everything we could ask for, and we were astonished we could call it our home for those two weeks. The owners were very welcoming, generous, and helpful with everything. The villa is located in a private community, yet close enough to downtown where you can access all sorts of shopping, dining, and activities. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to stay for an unforgettable vacation!

PERFECT place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Arc du Soleil is a perfectly lovely home-away-from-home! The grounds are beautiful, the home itself is gorgeous, and the view couldn't be prettier: it looks like a postcard.

It is VERY clean and very well maintained. I'm a bit of a neat-nick, and it was above my standards which is saying quite a bit. It was so nice to have a kitchen (and grill) and laundry available; I would recommend either bringing some food down or stopping at a market and eating in a few nights, because again- the view is just glorious.

Definitely contact Captain Mindy for a snorkelling, shopping, bar-hopping boat excursion- she was wonderful!

I can't say I disliked anything, but if I had one complaint it would be that there aren't any fresh fruit stands on the island.

Eat at Morgan's Mango, drink many Painkillers, visit Foxy's (via Capt. Mindy).

All in all I would not only recommend Arc du Solieil to you, family, and friends, but I very much look forward to returning soon myself!

Wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week we just spent at this unique villa. Arriving on Wednesday and being married on Saturday at sunset on Hawksnest beach we were able to spend an enjoyable week at the villa as well as this wonderful island. Harley and Betty are amazingly easy to work with and meeting them was one of the highlights of our trip. The home has everything you need and more and the views are stunning. Sunsets are great and the pool gets sun from around 11:00am until the sun goes down.

5 Star View!

  • 5 of 5

We travel quite extensively in the Caribbean and this has to be our favorite home! The view itself is enough to give this home 5 stars! Add the gorgeous pool, gourmet kitchen, and grounds and you will not want to leave this home. If you do, some recommendations are snorkling at Waterlemon Key, Trunk Bay, and across of Vie's Snack Shack. Restaurants we recommend are Rhumb Lines, Cafe Roma, La Tapa and Morgan Mangos for lobster night. We will definitly return to this lovely home.

Beautiful Villa above Great Cruze Bay on St John! My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay! The view is incredible and we never left the Villa. We definitely plan on staying at the Arc again!
