ROMANTIC PRIVATE POOL VILLA, AMAZING VIEWS, GREAT LOCATION-NEAR BEACHES & TOWN

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.

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

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.

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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

AMAZING...SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
I would have to say one of the best parts of our stay was the wonderful treatment we received from Linda the owner. She was so very nice and made our experience the best we have had using vrbo. The management company she uses in St John were also the best we have experienced. From stocking our refrigerator with items before our arrival to meeting us at the dock upon our arrival. They also helped with our luggage, took us to the jeep rental company, and took us to the home to show us around. They were just awesome. They also made it clear that if there was a problem, we could contact them 24/7. However, that was not at all necessary because the home was perfect, with everything we could possibly need. Perelandra is one of only a few homes that I would ever suggest someone stay in. The views are second to none and the interior is very well appointed. We felt at home the moment we walked in. Linda goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have everything they could want or need to make their stay amazing. From comfortable beds to fantastic bathrooms, to even small things such as nice beach chairs and towels. I am positive that we will stay here again in the future, but we love St John so much that my wife and I have decided to buy a home there to make St John our home in the near future. The home also has a fantastic patio as well as a screened in porch, both with beautiful views of the ocean and the sunset each evening. I would highly recommend staying in this lovely home.

Owner's Response: Perelandra is a very special place. The views and the location were the reasons we bought this villa. Then we went ahead and made the house as special as the views. We want our guests to have a wonderful experience on our beautiful island and come back to visit again.

SPECTACULAR VILLA WITH GREAT VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to St John. If we were to return, we would certainly stay at Perelandra. Perelandra is a beautiful villa. The villa is very well maintained and it is very close to town. The view of St Thomas from the back porch area is equally beautiful in the morning as in the evening. The owner has given great thought to equipping the villa. The kitchen has a new stainless steel refrigerator and fully equipped kitchen. We cooked some meals in and always were able to find what we needed. The screened in porch is great for the evening when the bugs are out. The ceiling fan in it helps it stay comfortable. Whether you are planning to spend the day at the beach or a day at the pool you have what you need to enjoy the day. Beach supplies included several nice beach chairs, two sizes of coolers, umbrellas, and beach blanket and beach towels. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool area after a day at the beach. The pool area has two lounge chairs as well as a couple upright chairs and small tables around it. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and are air conditioned which was great given the heat in July. Our favorite beach was Maho so be sure to check it out. A little further to drive but good snorkeling and nice white beach. Our family would highly recommend this villa and booking directly with the owner.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Perelandra and are glad that you appreciate all the things we do to making our guests' stays comfortable. Everything is kept up to date and we are always doing something to make Perelandra better.
The screened porch and the screened window are important to me too. The bugs love me and the screened porch was one of our first improvements. We love having dinner out there.
You are welcome back anytime. Come back to see what we are going to be doing in September!

A SPARKLING GEM IN THE SEA OF RENTALS!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Linda! We absolutely loved your home, and we would return again and again if we could. It was so very comfortable and inviting, and it was so refreshing to find beach chairs that were not already broken, a brand-new umbrella and an ice chest for our use at the beach. It had EVERYTHING we needed for cooking, lounging, and sleeping, and served as our very private little haven we could return to after our days on the beach. The beds were comfortable and had very nice linens. The bathrooms and showers are well planned and gorgeous.

The island is amazingly scenic and the weather was perfect. We will forever treasure our pictures we took of the views and the colors of the water and beautiful white sand beaches. It was easily one of the best vacations we have ever had, and our two weeks there just flew by. We soooo hope to return some day!

We've always been satisfied with our choices we've made through vrbo.com, but your home really stands out in the respect that you have taken such efforts at attention to detail. As I said, we had absolutely everything we could ever need. It sounds ridiculous, but one of the things I really appreciated were your new windows and nicely maintained screens. The bugs just either really love me or really hate me (I’m not sure which), because when I go to the Caribbean they chow down on me. It was so nice to be able to have the windows open and feel confident the bugs were not joining us. May sound silly to some people, but it is a big plus to us!

Your very detailed notebook at the house. which contains an incredible amount of information about adventures and restaurants, was especially helpful.

We enjoyed watching from the lanai the birds and iguanas lounging in the trees in the mornings, and gazing at the beautiful sea and marina below. What a wonderful way to wake up! We are avid snorkelers and saw a nurse shark, two octopus, barracudas, turtles, squid, lobster, eels, and stingrays; not to mention the millions of beautiful fish.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We returned to our home feeling incredibly refreshed and renewed, even though we would have rather stayed in St. John! It is just what we hope for from a vacation, and you sure delivered.

WORTH THE WAIT

  • 5 of 5
This was our 8th visit to the island and 8th villa rental. We have had our eye on Perelanda for years but never available when we were. Finally we were able to connect - what a great place. Everything met or exceeded our very high expectations. Looking forward to a return visit.

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.
