Kamabesu Villa, pronounced kuh-Mä’-beh- soo’, overlooking quiet Fish Bay on tranquil St. John in the US Virgin Islands, is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The screen enclosed veranda offers stunning views on St. John’s south shore and refreshing tropical breezes keeping the temperatures at bay. Kamabesu is in a private residential location only minutes to the walking paths of Reef Bay, Ditleff Point, Fish Bay and Klein Bay beaches. The shallow reefs and shoals in these waters offers great snorkeling making them a must see during your visit. St. John is noted for the fine white sand beaches on its north shore: Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho and Francis Bays just a short 10 to 15 minute drive. Kamabesu is only minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, the ferry dock, groc

Owner's Ammenities: The owner’s great loves include beach lounging, gardening, cooking, literature and movies. Kamabesu Villa features multiple amenities for these hobbies from the extensive Library of Books to the Catalogs of Music, DVDs, Games and Videos as well as all the tools a pampered chef could desire.

Movie classics such as Bridge over the River Kwai, Rear Window, The God Father I-III, Braveheart and Moulin Rouge are just highlights in the collection. Surround sound from speakers mounted on the ceiling transforms the living room into your own viewing theater and the rustling of the Caribbean winds only enhances the experience.

Lush gardens with Orchids, Oleander, Hibiscus, Bouganvillia and Fan Palms border the driveway providing privacy and improving the views through the eyes and nose. Fruit trees like mango, papaya, coconut, lime and genip (a local fruit) produce seasonally on the property. Kamabesu is currently adding a pool and 2 bedrooms to the lower level of the property which is 70 f

Family Inspired: Kamabesu (pronounced Ka-MA-ba-sue) Villa is a place where families feel welcome and comfort is primary. Like her namesakes, the four sisters whom inspired this house: Katie, Maggie, Betsy and Susan, Kamabesu embodies casual sophistication.

The Tartas began visiting the tropics 25 years ago and over time fell in love with the beautiful island of St. John. After many seasons to the same spot, Fish Bay, the Tartas purchased Kamabesu focusing on it’s transformation into a tropical paradise.

Joe & Paula, parents to the Kamabesu girls, have invested their hearts and are happy to welcome you to their home. They are both avid gardeners and believe a vacation home should be more comfortable than the one you left. Paula hand painted the details in all the bathrooms including the 6 foot Palm tree and international phrases for 'Water is Precious.' Joe’s hands-on approach to the garden has fortified the house with a wall of plantings offering privacy and beauty to all guests.

Kitchen Capable: Kamabesu’s kitchen is fully equipped including a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, oven/stove top, pots, pans, serving platters and even an ice machine for blended drinks! This kitchen is capable of preparing any meal, from quiet intimate dinners on the cool verandah to a family BBQ with burgers and ribs on the gas grill outside.

Joe & Paula purchased the house with family in mind. Expanding from a 3 - 7 bedroom villa this property has grown as their family has. With 4 daughters (Katie, Maggie, Betsy and Susan) now grown up and with families of their own it is still the spot they all come for special occasions.

Katie Tarta purchased this villa in 2004

As a 5 bedroom rental property (the two bedroom apartment is reserved for the on-site caretakers) the house boasts a family feel without everyone being on top of each other. Having been part of the step by step process to expand every detail has been accounted for.

Caretakers Dawn & Craig Cox offer on-site first hand knowledge of the island with concierge services available to improve your vacation and island stay. The house has the ability to offer privacy and togetherness as each bedroom has its own bathroom. The Main House which holds two of the 5 bedrooms and the Club House holds the other 3.

DREAM FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Kamabesu Villa was all that we imaged and more! Every inch of this gorgeous home with views of the water from the bedrooms, screened lanai, and salt water pool meet all expectations and more. The grounds are gorgeous with native flowers and plants (even aloe for sunburns!) and the home is well appointed with an open floor plan and generous sized rooms. The main house where we stayed has two large bedrooms with en suite baths and an updated, well stocked kitchen opening to the family/living area and screened lanai. Dawn and Craig, the on site caretakers, were welcoming, gracious and accomodating. We emailed a provisions list prior to our stay and it was such a wonderful amenity and service, as were the transportation, dining and activity recommendations. Dawn made reservations for all of our needs, including sailing and snorkeling and a wonderful driver who took us on an Island tour. We cannot say enough about her hands on approach to our stay and highly recommend using Kamabesu's added value amenities services. They will tailor a price to fit all their guests needs. In summary, our family so enjoyed our stay that we are booking for next year!

MEMORABLE EXTENDED FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 4 of 5
What a beautiful property for my sisters, my cousins, and our families. There were 11 of us total and the layout of the property allowed us to have as much time together or apart as we wanted. The two house layout was nice for the kids to have a space to get away as well and the pool made the heat of the day so much less an issue. The caretakers were amazing, interested in all feedback we had to offer, and hospitable while being helpful at a moment's notice.

The property was extremely clean and the layout and amenities were exactly as they were represented on the website. Maintenance is a key and the condition of the property made that very apparent to our entire party. Customer service was second to none and I would highly suggest this property to anybody looking to travel to St. John.

For anybody looking for a snorkel or sunset cruise, I would highly recommend the Calypso Catamaran tour. Their staff were amazing and we all had a wonderful time. Eating/shopping in Cruz Bay was great and we found ourselves especially attracted to the shops in Mongoose Junction.

6 + 5 = GREAT 2 FAMILY TRIP!

  • 4 of 5
our 2 families greatly enjoyed our stay at Kamabesu. It was just what we were hoping it would be - comfortable with a lovely view. The kitchen is nicely appointed for those of us who enjoyed cooking and the outdoor grill in the front patio/driveway area was well utilized! The two houses on the property have a uniquely different feel from one another - the main house is spacious and breezy while the guest house's blue and green rooms have a special woody, "old beach-house" feel. The caretaker was easily accessible and accommodating. To her credit, when one of the AC units malfunctioned, she had it repaired the same day! We hope to return in the future and recommend it to those who want a luxurious feel that is not "over the top" in terms cost/value.

Owner's Response: Kamabesu Villa was designed so large groups could have some privacy during their togetherness. The Club House, aptly named, is a simple addition to the property with all of the same amenities (each bedroom with attached bathroom, wide closets, plentiful pillows, king size temperpedic beds, 4-500 thread count sheets, black out shades, coffee machine, refrigeration, easy pool access) as the main house less a TV. We have repaired the AC and ordered an entire new unit to have on stand by for all 3 suites in the Club House. Our guest's comfort is a primary concern and we are pleased to be able to serve you!

I would highly recommend this place! After traveling a lot I feel in love this place immediately! The beds are so comfortable, the pool is convenient and the place feels very private even though you are in a nice residential neighborhood. Very peaceful yet still great being so close to town. I can't wait to go back!!

FAMILY REUNION- 5 SIBLINGS + SPOUSES

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful setting with fantastic views from the veranda. The great room was a perfect gathering spot
for our group. The villa is tastefully & colorfully decorated. Kitchen is very well equipped & the king
sized beds are comfy. The on site managers are very helpful. The pool & deck are quite nice.
The steps from the main villa to the lower 3 bedrooms are a bit of a hassle. Overall, this is a lovely, quiet place from which to enjoy St John
