VILLA CAROLINA - HUGE PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEWS, PRIVATE, POOL, QUIET

Carolina Ridge Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Villa Carolina is a private and serene slice of paradise located in a prestigious area of Coral Bay known as Upper Carolina. Its highly elevated perch is nestled in the hillside bordering the Virgin Islands National Park. The bars, restaurants, and quaint shops of Coral Bay are just five minutes down the hill. The famous North Shore beaches of St. John are less than 10 minutes away. Francis Bay and Maho Bay are the closest. Several beaches toward the East End, like Vie's and Haulover, are also about a 10 minute drive. The incredibly pleasant sands of Salt Pond are maybe 15 minutes away. It's the perfect spot to enjoy both sides of the island.

THIS EXCLUSIVE, GATED LOCATION AFFORDS UNINTERRUPTED, 225 DEGREE, PANORAMIC VIEWS over the Carolina Valley, all of Coral Bay, out the East End of St. John toward Norman, Peter, Salt, Cooper, Ginger, and Beef Islands, and all the way to Virgin Gorda. That's 30 miles! Directly to the northeast is Drake's Channel and West End, Tortola. Spectacular sunrises on the deck are a sight to behold and star gazing evenings are out of this world. It's unforgettable 'postcard' scenery.

Relax on the expansive pool deck. Sit back in the fully reclining lounge chairs, or retreat to the comfortable wicker furniture in the shade. Float the day away in the infinity edge pool. Read a book and watch the sail boats dance the aqua blue Caribbean. Bring the blender outside and mix up a 'Painkiller'. Fire up the barbecue and enjoy a meal of local fish or lobster at the outdoor dining table. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

Wireless internet access is available throughout the house and poolside, for those of you that just can't seem to leave the real world behind. Shame on you.

The spacious Great Room with cathedral ceilings invites you to relax on the plush Tommy Bahama furniture. Five sets of mahogany French doors flow to the sunny pool deck to make for easy outdoor living. Arched breezeways allow the refreshing trade winds to circulate the villa. Ceiling fans abound, and Mexican tile floors are just another touch of class. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to prepare fantastic meals in style, and your chef will have plenty of room to get down to business. We haven't overlooked a thing; gas range, dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator with ice maker, coffee maker, toaster, and a kitchen island with an additional bar sink.

Two bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the Great Room for complete couples privacy. They are similar sized master suites and both have French doors overlooking the pool deck. Identical bathrooms have spacious closets, tiled double vanities and open-air stone grotto showers. An internal staircase leads down to the third bedroom with a private deck and a full bath with stone shower. All bedrooms have queen size beds and the third room has an extra daybed. All bedrooms also have A/C, but it's rarely needed because of the great breezes and ceiling fans.

Villa Carolina is extremely popular and has many repeat guests, so we recommend booking early (6 months advanced) to reserve your week in paradise. If for some reason we are not booked within 30 days of your desired vacation time, please contact us, as we often provide discounts for rentals on short notice.

WE APOLOGIZE, BUT BECAUSE OF LEGAL ISSUES WITH THE POOL, WE CANNOT PERMIT CHILDREN AGES 8 MONTHS TO 8 YEARS TO STAY AT VILLA CAROLINA. SORRY. We do occasionally make exceptions. Just ask.

Please do not hesitate to contact Sean by e-mail with any questions or comments. If Villa Carolina is not the right size or location for your party, Sean can also refer you to other villas. Thank you............and tell a friend!!

We have been visiting St. John for about 25 years. This incredible island grabbed a hold of us on our first trip, and we had hoped to one day have our own piece of paradise.

We've been fortunate enough to make that happen, and lucky enough to share it with others.

General Manager purchased this villa in 1988

If you've ever visited St. John, then you can certainly understand why anyone would want to own a home here. We chose the Coral Bay area to be 'on the quiet side' and we choose the homesite for the view and elevated location. We also considered this a very easy and convenient spot to enjoy both sides of the island. While looking at the property for a possible purchase back in 1988, we had to climb a tree to see the view. We almost fell out! When we had the home built in 2000 and 2001, we made sure to leave that tree, and it is right at the top of the driveway now.

The location of the property provides for some of the best views on the island. There's just no way that any picture can do it justice. Sunrises are truly amazing. The Villa borders the National Park and is totally private. There is no through traffic. A true escape.

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Sharon, What a magnificent home you have; the views, the location, the views, the comfort, the views, the layout, the views!! It wasn't easy to return home, which we did in a snowstorm. In fact we didn't think we could get up our driveway through all the snow and drifts. We did, and now we have wonderful memories of our time in St. John. We throughly enjoyed all the island had to offer, but really your home was the star attraction. To wake up in the morning to those gorgeous sunrises, sit on the patio overlooking the pool and beyond was a dream.

The view from Villa Carolina is absolutely breathtaking. The layout of the villa is wonderful, especially for 3 couples wanting to share. The furnishings and amenities have been carefully planned, and everything you need is there. The villa decor was beautiful and was very clean! We have stayed at Coral Bay previously, however, we were at a much lower elevation, so we didn't experience the view that Villa Carolina offered. The unobstructed view of the ocean and the surrounding USVI & BVI islands is absolutely gorgeous. Our escort in St. John was very friendly and very accommodating to our needs. The villa owner, Sharon, was very professional and responded very quickly to any questions we had throughout our rental process. We highly recommend this property, and would love to go back with our family someday.

OUTSTANDING VACATION, STUNNING VIEWS AND EXCEPTIONALLY WELL-EQUIPPED KITCHEN

  • 5 of 5
Our three adult children joined us for Christmas week in Villa Carolina. This "Skipping Christmas" vacation ranks up there among the all-time best, due in large part to how much we all enjoyed our time in this villa. The views are as advertised--stunning sunrises but the sunsets are equally gorgeous, even though you can't see the sun sink into the sea due to terrain. And it's too bad this website doesn't have audio so you could hear the tree frogs that start up at dusk and go all night--simply a magical soundtrack. We never turned the air conditioning on at all during our stay--breezes were lovely and the numerous ceiling fans did the job when it did get warm. This was the best-equipped kitchen of any place we've stayed, ever. There was even a Christmas-themed hors d’oeuvres plate (complete with Santa cheese knife) that we enjoyed using. Highly recommended, really can't say enough nice things. Villa Carolina was the height of our trip. It's an amazing, quiet and tranquil oasis.

PERFECT LUXURY

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to the quiet side of the island and the accommodations were perfect. When we arrived in the driveway of the villa, my husband commented, "We should have brought binoculars or a travel telescope". I opened the door to the villa to find the villa was equipped with a telescope already and the views were spectacular!

We appreciated that the owner, Sharon was willing to forgo the island greeter when she was not able to accommodate our time table for arrival. This allowed us to get our grocery shopping done prior to traveling to the quiet side of the island. The villa was clean and beautiful. All of the appliances worked great and we were very comfortable playing board games in the late afternoon and evening. My husband travels extensively, especially in Asia-Pacific and Europe and with all of our travels in mind, we both agreed that was the most beautiful and romantic place we have ever stayed. Thank you for sharing your luxurious villa with us! We look forward to returning and sharing it with friends!

POORLY DESIGNED HOUSE - AND BUGS

  • 1 of 5
We left after 3 nights. No blinds on the bedroom window facing the pool and the sun rises at 5:15 am. Showers look great in photos but allow you to hear the tree frogs all night long. A bird made a nest outside our bedroom and made noises all night and all day. The air is loud and clanky in the one upstairs room. Air in other upstairs room hasn't worked since April 2013 according to the guest book. Downstairs bedroom is the only room you can sleep in and it is in a cave like environment. A huge roach crawled across my back in the middle of the night. And we sprayed everything with bug spray. The main room doors (facing the pool) do not have screens and this room is not air conditioned.

Owner's Response: I am extremely sorry that the guests were not able to enjoy their stay in Villa Carolina. Many of their complaints are the very things that visitors seek out on an island that is 3/4 National Park: the singing of tree frogs, the lovely birds and their calling, the island breeze blowing through the screened doors at night, the gorgeous sunrise coming up over the East End. Now, of course I realize that everyone is not an early riser, but I have yet to figure out what I could put on the doors so that guests who want to leave them open are able to enjoy the breeze while blocking the light and not the view! There's no easy solution.

Our website states that the villa does not have central air, but only "wall units" in bedrooms. The noted guest book comment about the A/C was written in an effort to give me a heads up that one unit was not working. It was repaired as quickly as possible and has since had to be replaced. Nothing happens overnight in STJ! The new unit had to be shipped from stateside.

The room referred to as "the cave" is a lovely room with a large window view AND a 6 foot sliding glass door that leads to a private deck. It's a well lite cave! Villa Carolina is gorgeous, well appointed and very comfortable. Most of the comments we get are about the appointment of furniture and the classy décor! We have many repeat guests and have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback over the years as one can see from our many five star reviews. The villa is clearly well appreciated.

I talked to the guests on their second day there. They said they were having a wonderful time and mentioned no issues at all. Every guest is given my cell number and is directed to call me immediately with any problems they might be having. I didn't have an opportunity to solve any of their issues because I was never made aware of them. Nor was anyone on my staff made aware of any problems! I heard nothing until I received an e-mail eight days later, saying that they left after three days.... without notifying anyone. The villa sat unlocked and unattended until their anticipated departure four days later.

I do wonder though, how does one keep the birds and tree frogs from singing? And I also have another question. If the AC was so loud and clanky, how did they hear the frogs and birds?

I am always very concerned about the comfort of my guests and I'm happy to receive any constructive criticism with their comfort in mind. Thank You

THE PERFECT ST JOHN VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Villa Carolina was spectacular! Even better than the online photos portray. Clean, quiet, comfortable with a magnificent view and a fabulous location. Coral Bay was just wonderful. Salt Pond Bay beach, Miss Lucy's, The Shipwreck, Skinny Legs, Pickles in Paradise sandwich shop. You definitely need a car and driving is part of the adventure. Access to the rest of the island was no problem. We loved exploring all the beaches of St John and hanging out in Cruz Bay a few evenings. Highly recommend Villa Carolina.
