Overview

Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths 1-2 &3-4 guests have different rates Read rates carefully

The views, privacy, comfort, and romantic ambiance of this intimate, elegant villa will delight you. Clinging to the hillside above Cruz Bay, Perelandra's breathtaking views sweep from the deserted cays nestled in the Windward Passage to the sailboats skimming through Pillsbury Sound to the spectacular sunsets resting upon St. Thomas. Later in the evening, St. Thomas' twinkling lights provide a romantic backdrop to your evening.

The villa's perfect location offers proximity to town -- with its ferries, restaurants, and shops -- and to the world-famous National Park beaches of the North Shore while also providing complete privacy among lush landscaping.

Perelandra offers two luxuriously appointed bedrooms -- each with its own air-conditioning, and two large bathrooms -- each with a large walk-in shower. There is a queen sized sofa bed in the living rom. This meticulously-crafted home includes cove molding, mood lighting, Saltilo tiles, exotic woods, and ceiling fans throughout

Glass tiles set in the vaulted ceilings bathe the living areas in light. Bedroom and great room doors open out onto two levels of wrap-around decks and verandas which, in turn, lead to the beautiful, refreshing swimming pool -- perfectly sized to be large enough to cool off and exercise in (10 x 18) but small enough to warm up quickly in the sun. While the pool area provides beautiful views of the ocean and St. Thomas, others can not view you as it is surrounded by garden walls and verdant foliage and flowers.

Perelandra is very-well provisioned. Its kitchen provides everything you'll need to fix snacks for the beach, to make your own Caribbean drinks to sip poolside or while watching the sunset, or to prepare that romantic dinner for just the two of you. Special kitchen features include a large side-by-side refrigerator with ice-maker, range with built-in griddle, chef-quality pots and pans, and designer dinnerware.

Additional amenities also include a new washer and dryer, 2 tv's, many games, CDs, DVDs, videos, phones upstairs and down with answering machine, beach chairs and towels, picnic coolers, beach bags. See the extensive list below of all additional amenities provided for your comfort and convenience. All items are top quality.

Perelandra is perfect for a romantic interlude for the two of you, for two couples vacationing together (bedrooms are equally desirable), or for a family with children.

About Linda Gallagher

My husband and I were lucky enough to buy this beautiful villa. We want to share it with you. We have been coming to St. John for years and think it is the most beautiful place on earth. I know you will love Perelandra and St. John.

Linda Gallagher purchased this villa in 2011

Why Linda Gallagher chose Cruz Bay

Who wouldn't want to own a piece of Paradise? We looked at lots of houses on the island and Perelandra was the perfect villa for us.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5
We just recently returned from a trip to St. John and Perelandra and it was amazing! We went with another couple and because the bedrooms are on separate floors it allowed for a lot of privacy! The location was great, the views were spectacular and anything you could possibly need was in the home!! Not only did St Joh exceed our expectation, but so did Perelandra! We cannot wait to visit both again!!

Owner's Response: It is just for these reasons, and more that we do get repeat guests at Perelandra. The view and the location were the reasons we chose Perelandra and we do everything we can to make it comfortable and special for our guests.
The twobedrooms with en suite baths on seperate floors are great for two couples with a king and queen in each. And when the downstairs bedroom is made up as twins it is great for a family with children. Luckily there is a interior staircase that makes it easy for children to get upstairs to the living areas and their parents.
We're glad you enjoyed Perelandra.

Perelandra is amazing

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from 6 nights at Perelandra and we're already missing it! The property is absolutely stunning and the location is perfect, 2mins from the Supermarket / liquor store & 5mins from downtown Cruz Bay. Perelandra is perfect for a couple, 2 couples, or a small family looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the mainland. On top Perelandra being an amazing villa, St. John the island might be the most special places I've ever visited, my wife and I fell in love with it from the minute we arrived. This was our first time staying at Perelandra but it most certainly won't be our last. Thank you Linda & everyone working at Cimmaron for making our vacation exceed our expectations!!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to St. John and the second time for the rest of our group. It was very nice to be met at the ferry dock by someone from Cimmaron and take us directly to the house and give us a tour. One of my favorite parts of the house was the amazing view!!!!!! It was amazing to see beautiful sunsets and enjoy a picturesque view everyday!!! We could see some awesome boats and the group of iguanas that live in the tree just below the house!! It was fun to search the tree everyday/night to see where they would be sunning. The house was surrounded by beautiful manicured landscaping and really added to the look of the villa. The drive from Cruz Bay to the house is very short and by the end of our stay we could do it in our sleep! Just remember to stay on the left! -- The house was great for 2 couples! It was a big plus to have our own porch and control of the individual AC units in the rooms. Each room had an awesome in suite full bath with full privacy from the other rooms. They had a great closet with several shelves to put everything while we were there. There are full size washer and dryers that were great! The kitchen was highly utilized, as was the grill! The porch was a frequent spot for after happy hour snacks and dinner! We spent almost every afternoon/evening in the pool, which is shallow as you get it but gets deeper towards the opposite side (deep enough my 6’4 boyfriend could still be fully submerged). Having the chairs and coolers right at the house was very convenient!! Great for stopping at starfish market for “beverages” to take for a nice day at the beach. All of the beaches were a short drive from the house unless you venture over to Coral Bay, which took about 40 minutes but way worth it for some great snorkeling!!! The home was very secure with locks on all the sliding doors, shutters that locked from the inside and a large lock on the front door. There is a safe that was very easy to use in the house as well. Overall the house made for an impeccable stay and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the house!!!! It made my first and their returning trip to St. Johns a memorable visit!!!

A REMARCABLE home!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at Perelandra from July 30th to August 7th. WE ALL LOVED IT!! The house is clean, bright, and comfortable. The view from the back deck was simply astonishing. The pool was a refreshing oasis in the Caribbean weather, which we north-easterners are not accustomed to. The service provided by Cimmaron (the property management company) was exceptional. Overall we had a spectacular vacation, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Perelandra.

Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful villa, with views that don't disappoint. We went to St. John for our 20th wedding anniversary with our two kids, ages 10 and 12. I found the villa through this site, and when my husband saw it in person, he said, "This place is just perfect." It is very convenient to Cruz Bay, and has EVERYTHING you would need. There's a well-appointed kitchen, beach chairs and towels, an umbrella, etc. The owner and the rental agency could not have been more accommodating. Everything was clean and in working order. There is only AC in the bedrooms so the living area can get warm in the afternoons, but we were on the beach most of the time! The stairs that go down to the second bedroom are sort of narrow for mobility challenged folks...but overall and in every way, I definitely recommend this place! Can't wait to go back! It's a good home base for your trip to paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review and I would be thrilled if you returned for another milestone wedding anniversary!
Just as your husband said, when we first saw Perelandra we said, "This place is just perfect! ". And we continue to work to make it so.
The living room can sometimes be warm in the middle of summer but we close the outside doors in the morning before going out for the day and have found that keeps the room cooler when we return.
So glad you enjoyed our piece of paradise.

Wonderfully amazing!

This is my husband's and my 4th time to St. John and our friends' first time. Let me start w/the view! Not only do you get to watch the sunset setting behind St. Thomas across the way, you get to watch the boats coming in and out of Cruz Bay, making for wonderful pictures. The drive from Cruz Bay up Jacob's ladder is a short travel from the busy area of restaurants to your own peaceful stay. The home was perfect for 2 couples and the first villa for us to stay in any area of the Caribbean that allowed accessiblity to both bedrooms from inside. Each room was w/an en suite full bath and had full privacy (visual and audible) from the other rooms. The kitchen was fully supplied for those nights you want to cook and eat quietly on the deck. The grill was pretty new and well maintained.
A day on the beach was easy as beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler and towels were supplied. After happy hour at our favorite spots, it was always nice to come home to share the pool w/Iggy and his iguana family either on the pool deck or sunbathing in the trees w/in the well maintained landscaping.
The home was secured w/locked entrances, bracing for the sliding doors and a programmable safe.
Marilyn from Cimmaron, the management company, met us at the ferry dock, took us to our rental car and directed us to the villa, leaving only after a tour. She was nice enough to call on us twice to make sure we were enjoying our stay, answering any questions we had, etc. Linda, the owner even called to do the same. Unfortunately, we are early risers and were already on the beach when she called and left a message.
What a luxurious villa to stay in for a very affordable price compared to the other homes we searched. We will be back at our next visit of St John, our little paradise!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you found everything you wanted and needed at Perelandra. We try hard to think of everything a guest might need and want. Our management Cimmaron plays an important part in that as you can see from your interaction with Marilyn and we are very grateful to them.
We'll be doing even more to make Perelandra perfect in September. Come back and see!
Thank you for choosing Perelandra and we would welcome you back anytime.

Map

Car: necessary

Perelandra has the best location on the best island in the Caribbean.

St. John is unique among the Caribbean islands because it is the only one that is 2/3 National Park--providing you with rare access to pristine beaches and water for swimming & snorkeling as well as miles of nature trails to hike. After a days recreation, come home to relax at Perelandra.

Sitting on Perelandra's deck with an expansive view of the turquoise ocean and surrounding mountainous islands, surrounded with fragrant tropical flowers & chirping yellow sugarbirds, watch the brilliant sunsets as day turns into dusk, and then linger a bit longer & watch the twinkling lights of St. Thomas appear as the tree frogs begin your evening serenade.
