Virgin Grand Estates Villa Rental Photos and Description

St John's most beautiful villa featuring 5 bedrooms sleeps 2-12 near Cruz Bay.

Casa De Sonadores (House of Dreamers) is located on one of the uppermost lots in gated Virgin Grand Estates, a private neighborhood of multi million dollar luxury villas. As our property manager meets and greets you in Cruz Bay, you'll likely get a rental vehicle and be escorted to the property for a tour. The drive is about 7 minutes to the villa on good paved roads. As you drive between the villas massive native stone walls you will immediately be in awe of the panoramic view that stretches from Little St. James in the south, past St. Thomas and Hans Lollick in the west, to Lovango in the northwest. Breathtaking is not an overstatement. If you arrive near sunset the year round blazing sunset views are indescribable. The views from this location are so much better in person than can be captured by photography.

Inside you will see the results of years put into design and construction. The award winning architect went all out with features such as 7' high massive native stone privacy walls and privacy gate, the most beautiful round gourmet kitchen on St John, bedrooms with solid walled privacy terraces, a game room and theater room for the occasional rainy day, and a sunny pool deck that gets sun almost all day long. The villa air conditioning, shaded veranda, and covered terraces are there for those seeking a bit less sun. Take your time to look over the details in the photos of Casa De Sonadores. While this property is priced very competitive it is truly among the most spectacular on the island.

There are not many better locations on St John than upper Virgin Grand Estates. About a half-mile below are the restaurants, beach and fitness room of the Westin Resort. An easy walk downhill but slower back up. The renowned restaurants and shops of the delightful village of Cruz Bay are a 7 minute drive, entirely on paved roads. St. John's famed north shore beaches like Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Maho and Francis are also a short drive away.

Contact us with all your questions. We love to talk about Casa De Sonadores and St John. John and Vicky will reply back quickly and if they don't have answers they will get them from our excellent property managers.

About John and Vicky Daly

My family presently lives in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Now over 20 years ago my wife and I first went to St John on our honeymoon. Falling in love with the island and after many wonderful trips back we developed the property known as Virgin Grand Estates. Casa De Sonadores is the result of years of work and planning for a spectacular home away from home in our favorite place.

John and Vicky Daly purchased this villa in 2003

Why John and Vicky Daly chose Virgin Grand Estates

A lot of thought was put into where to build on St John. For us, choosing one of the most magnificent lots in the Virgin Grand Estates luxury gated subdivision made the most sense. While we had the choice of many areas on the island we love the panoramic and beathtaking sunset views we have at Casa De Sonadores. The location has the best of everything. We have fabulous views at our elevation yet we are close to shopping, dining, and all the wonderful beaches of St John.

What makes this villa unique

Unique to Casa De Sonadores is one of the most detailed and luxurious villas on the island. Also unique is the quiet unspoiled sense we have as we look out over some of the most beautiful water and island views I have seen anywhere.

Awesome View

  • 5 of 5
Six of us had a fantastic time at Casa de Sonadores! The villa is great for a family or a group of couples such as us. The view of St. Thomas from the pool and the bedrooms is spectacular. The kitchen is very large and very well stocked with appliances and everything else you could need. The outdoor grill is a nice feature. Having your own pool is a great thing if you choose to stay around the villa for the day. A car rental is a must, but great roads and driveway to the property compared to a lot of villas on St. John. Driving time to the beach varies based on which of the many beaches on St. John you want to go to. The outdoor showers is a great feature of the bedrooms. The game room downstairs is great for children or for adults to watch a movie. We could get any TV channel we could possibly want which might not sound like much but in the past we have had issues with getting the major US networks at other properties on St. John. This property is in a gated community and has its own private gate onto the villa itself. No other properties are right on top of you which is very enjoyable. The owners of this property are very accommodating in every way.

Beautiful Home- Perfect for a Group

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th time in St. John, but our first time to rent a villa. We rented Casa de Sonadores to celebrate a 40th birthday with 3 couples and 2 children ages 7 and 9. The rental process was smooth and the owners and caretakers were readily available to answer any and all questions pre-arrival. There were no problems arriving in Saint John and the caretakers promptly met us at the ferry dock. They were nice enough to secure all three jeep rentals ahead of time since we arrived late and secure parking and helped us tote our luggage and load up for departure to the villa. The drive from Cruz Bay is about 8 minutes. We were thrilled when we arrived at the house. It was just as pictured. The landscaping is beautiful. The furnishings were well kept. The kitchen had everything we needed. Although we did not do much cooking, we could have if we had wanted to. The frig was stocked with a few goodies and beverages. Enough to hold us over until we could stock up at the store the next day. For a rental we found the house very well maintained. No spiderwebs, dust in corners etc, I even checked under the bed. We were also pleased to find plenty of beach chairs and snorkel gear for our use. The bedrooms were of ample size and pretty much all the same so no one felt like they were getting a bad room. The outdoor showers were amazing. The AC in all the rooms worked fabulously which was super important to us. We rented a villa on another island previously which had no AC and we got very little sleep... so AC was really important to me this time. I was not disappointed. The owners even called in to check in on us to make sure everything was ok, which was nice. We have not experienced that with other rental properties. All in all a great experience and would highly recommend.

Good not Excellent

  • 4 of 5
We rented this location for a family get together, there were nine of us, location was plenty big, all enjoyed the outdoor showers.

The evening views toward St. Thomas never stopped to amaze us each evening while enjoying the pool area.

Kitchen was a great place to prepare many evening meals.

If one rents this location you will experience a fair amount of vehicle noise as the road is very close to this location, if you have windows open you will hear it, however due to the landscaping you have a fair amount of privacy, but there is noise at times.

Having been vacationing on St. John since 1977 this location met our needs, it could use a little hands on care. We were told this place is apparently for sale as they were attempting to show it while we were there.

The managers did contact us several times, and met us promptly at the docks to escort us to the residence.

Excellent home. Very nice for the entire family. The kids, 6 and 8, loved the pool. Beautiful views. Lizards, iguanas, and goats wandered through. Large kitchen and all the amenities.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion-type vacation with 9 adults and 6 small children. All fit comfortably in the 5 bedrooms. The house was a perfect home base from which to explore St. John. One of our favorite things was how the house was designed to have all the doors and windows opened and turn it into an open-air villa with the tradewinds blowing through. LOVED the outdoor showers in each room. The house is luxurious as seen in the stock photos, but the one thing the stock photos can't quite convey well enough is the view. We really enjoyed spending our evenings relaxing and watching the sun set from this villa. INCREDIBLE VIEW!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Loretta. The view is indeed magical. Sonadores captures the evening sunset perfectly, which is an exciting phenomenon to see behind the silhouette of St. Thomas. And we're proud to say that it's visible year round at our villa. So visit us any time and you won't be disappointed!
