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.

I LOVE KAMABESU

My experience at Kamabesu was wonderful. The owners have thought of everything and are available to help in any other way imaginable. I traveled there with my 8month old son and it was ideal. There were ready for us with a pack n play, bouncy swing, outdoor baby swing and many age appropriate toys. They were even helpful in introducing us to trusted sitters! We easily transitioned into this beautiful environment. I can't wait to make to come back with my little boy next year.

Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Kamabesu the first week of August. The villa had everything we needed. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds were oh so comfortable! The view of Fish Bay from the massive screened in porch was beautiful and the pool and pool area was perfect (and safe) for the kids. We also felt that the location was perfect for us…away from the hustle of Cruz Bay but easily accessible.

Owner's Response: We always look forward to repeat guests and truly hope the Reese family returns. We think they'll appreciate the further updates we've added to the property this winter by remodeling the kitchen in the main house to be more user friendly and adding an additional 20 feet in the living area to make more space for relaxing after a long day at the beach.

My wife and I recently planned a quick family getaway to St. John and couldn't possibly have been happier in choosing Kamabesu over a hotel. There's nothing like the privacy and peace of having your very own home while on the island. Katie and Bryan made sure we had eveything we needed while we were at the villa, and pointed us in all the right directions when we ventured out to eat and beach and hike and shop. They're full of recommendations and can help you get the most out of the experience, whether it be finding the more hidden beaches or helping you find activities. WONDERFUL stay. We're already planning to go back.

A private garden oasis on St John

After ten glorious early-March days at Kamabesu, we long to return! Kamabesu Villa is wonderfully situated for privacy and tranquility, but is convenient to Cruz Bay’s fine dining and shopping. Kamabesu was the perfect home base for touring St. John’s beaches and sites in our rented Jeep.

Kamabesu’s main house is a beautifully “old style” Caribbean villa, designed for complete relaxation and enjoyment of the remarkable setting overlooking Fish Bay. The villa’s large rooms, with high vaulted wood ceilings, paddle fans, and tiled floors, are naturally light, cool and ventilated to the prevailing sea breezes. We particularly enjoyed dining and relaxing on Kamabesu’s huge screen porch, which more than doubles the villa’s living area. Although independently controlled bedroom air conditioning (and all other modern comforts) are provided at Kamabesu, we never once turned on the AC.

Outside, Kamabesu is a garden oasis, with lush tropical plantings – all chosen and carefully tended by Kamabesu’s owners/managers. (Bougainvillea was flowering all over the property while we were there, and other plants and trees were ready burst into bloom.) Natural stone pathways and stairways wander through the plantings, connecting the main house to Kamabesu’s relaxing pool area, which is always sunny, breezy, and fragrant, as well as to additional guest rooms in the “Club House”.

Although our small group of four was not using the Club House rooms, I enjoyed a tour. The Club House guest rooms (which are never rented separately from the main house, but may be rented in addition to the main house for larger groups) are true “master suites” - as substantial and comfortable as the bedrooms in the main house - so no one will ever feel “short changed” in this private retreat.

With all of Kamabesu’s many amenities, what is most remarkable about Kamabesu is the personal care taken by the owners and the gracious on-site manager to insure the comfort of guests. Many thanks to the owners of Kamabesu Villa for creating this wonderful home and for sharing Kamabesu on HomeAway.

Owner's Response: We were so happy to host Christie and her family. There trip was during the height of dry season and while we didn't see much in the way of rain our 60,000 gallons of cistern water held us over until a few evening showers started to replenish it. We delight in visitors from all over the country and hope they return again soon.
