Overview

Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

2BR,2 Bath Villa with Pool, Oceanview; Close to town and beaches, St. John USVI

From the moment you enter the front door of this lovely oceanview home, you'll feel glad you made the right choice for your vacation in the tropics. As you cross the tan, tiled floor, you'll notice the modern kitchen and the generous dining table. Passing through the French doors, you'll arrive on the tiled pool deck. There you can plop down on a padded, cushioned pool chair. Better yet, you can kick off your sandals, and pop right into the gorgeous pool!

Enjoy lounging under the Caribbean sun and the blue sky that's punctuated by fluffy, cottony clouds. Enjoy paddling around in the deepest pool on Saint John -- or lolling, half underwater on the huge steps in its corner. We know you'll appreciate the quiet, secluded privacy of your own little 'peace o' heaven.'

The large dining table and cushioned chairs out on the pool deck invite your party to dine outdoors after barbecuing on the gas grill. Then enjoy gazing at a flamboyant sunset from the porch swing.

After sunset, watch as Saint Thomas comes to life like a pulsing gem of light against the black velvety background under the moon and stars.

Inside, the cross ventilation through the doors and shutter windows invite the 200-foot-high hillside breezes (aided and abetted by the floor and ceiling fans). You're sure to get a cool restful sleep. (The imported, 8,500-BTU air-conditioning units are almost never turned on).

Well-stocked supermarts, shopping, and nightlife abound close by. And the locals are as sweet as sugar. (Say 'Hello!' first, and enjoy big smiles in return!).

Imagine yourself in the various scenes shown here. Then phone us to reserve your favorite week(s) -- and to realize a memorable dream in your own little Peace o' Heaven.

About Ruthellen and/or Andrew

Andrew, aka 'Captain Magic,' has loved the water and warm weather since he was a boy. While playing sax on many cruise ships, he visited many ports o' call and fell in love with St. John. After years of dreaming, he, and his life partner, Ruthellen (aka 'Dr. Cha Cha Cha') sailed from Florida in their 30' sailboat, arriving at their new home in 2001. Andrew and Ruthellen love sharing the pristine beauty and peacefulness of St. John with their guests.

Ruthellen and/or Andrew purchased this villa in 2000

Why Ruthellen and/or Andrew chose Cruz Bay

For the beautiful views, especially the sunsets and the convenience to town and the beaches.

Excellent value for the price.

What makes this villa unique

Tropical beach feel, but convenient to town and amenities. The swing on the pool deck facing west to St. Thomas and beyond, is the perfect place to hang out.

The entire living area is on one level, with only 1 step up to the porch and a low threshold. This feature and the open floor plan make it suitable for guests with disabilities and mobility issues. But, because the home is built into the natural incline, there is still a tree house feel and view from the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited Peace O’Heaven for a special family celebration. After talking with Ruthellen, we knew this was the right place for our family. Her personal approach was appreciated and it removed every concern we may have had about renting. Once we arrived, Mark met us at the dock and took care of everything as promised, and more! He was excellent with every detail including recommending places to visit and eat. The house was clean and just as it appears in the listing. It had everything a family needed and more. The huge doors in every room leading to the pool deck let in the breeze and allowed us a wonderful view of the island. The pool was a hit for our 3 kids after a day of snorkeling. The house is located on the hillside so a jeep is recommended. It didn’t take long to find our way around and visit many of the beaches on the island. They are each unique and well worth the time to see. We can’t thank Ruthellen, Andrew and Mark enough for making it a perfect place to celebrate our special occasion. We have already recommended it to several of our friends; we just hope they take us with them when they visit! I’m sure we will be back in the future.

Awesome Time

  • 5 of 5
I read a lot of reviews before deciding to stay at Peace O' Heaven and this place lived up to the hype! I went with four other college buddies to explore St. John and relax and we all had a ton of fun. The view is absolutely amazing and the pool was great to jump into after coming back from the beaches/exploring the island. The location was excellent too. It was isolated enough that we were happy with our privacy, but also close enough so that we could walk downtown to all the different restaurants and bars in Cruz Bay. I would definitely recommend renting a jeep for at least one day though. While there are close enough beaches and trails that you can walk to (Solomon Beach and Hunk Trail), you still should make it a point to explore the east side of the island. Along the way you will see some of the most amazing beaches at Cinnamon Bay and Coral Bay. Definitely make it a point to grab a bite to eat at Skinny Legs too! The service was also very friendly and helpful. I spoke with the owners (Ruthellen and Andrew) before our trip and they were both extremely nice and helpful in answering all our questions. The manager was also awesome too (Richard). He was available if we had any issues and also was nice enough to give all five of us a ride to the villa from the ferry in his truck. Overall we had a great experience. We did St. John right by having an awesome/affordable villa, exploring the various beaches/hiking trails, and also wandering around Cruz Bay to all the different bars and restaurants (Joe's Rum Hut, Castaway, Beach Bar, Rhumb Line). If I come back to St John, I would definitely stay at Peace O'Heaven again! Thanks again Ruthellen, Andrew, and Richard.

piece and peace of heaven!

  • 5 of 5
The name of the villa says it all, it's like having peace and being in heaven. The villa is well stocked with everything that we need. The pool was nice place to soak in after a long day at the beach. It is just a few blocks away from restaurants and shops. We would definitely recommend this villa!

An excellent budget property

  • 4 of 5
The view is four star. The pool is nice too. It is 8 ft deep, so the kids can dive, which is a real treat these days. The outdoor tile is slippery when wet, so you'll want to be careful. The patio area is great too. View, pool and patio - that is why you come here. The interior is spacious, which is nice, but does not get alot of natural light. The kitchen has everything you need. You might find the decor to be dated, but overall the place has great bones, including nice vaulted ceilings. Better beach chairs would be nice. I spoke to the owner about that. The owners are excellent to deal with.

Great Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week around Christmas at the villa and really loved it. My wife and I with our two sons (19 and 16). We got into St. John after 9pm, and Jason was waiting for us at the ferry dock. He stopped at the market so we could get food for breakfast, then helped us settle in after a long day of traveling. Jason was very responsive with any questions or requests that we had.
The next morning we walked down to town to get our Jeep at L&L. It's an easy walk to town, a little more effort coming back up.
The layout of the house is very nice for a family or for two couples. Breakfast by the pool in the morning, cocktails by the pool at sunset. What more could you ask for.

Great time!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Peace O'Heaven celebrating my partners birthday with friends. We were met at the Ferry from Red Hook by Jason, who was really great. He took us to the grocery store for alittle shopping so we'd have stuff for breakfast and then up ( and I do mean UP) to the house. It's up the hill with an awesome view of St. Thomas and the water. The house is lovely, nicely equiped for a vacation, bedrooms at oppposite ends of the house and a super pool. We sat outside almost continually when at the house. It's a great location for getting into town and not having to find parking, although be aware that the walk back up to the house would be tough with alot of packages so rent a vehicle. We used Denzil Clyne with great results. Only downside was the car that started every morning at 5:45 right outside the master bedroom window. We would definitely rent again but we'd take the back bedroom next time.

We are just outside of Cruz Bay Town, off of Centerline Rd. (Rte. 10), up 'Pocket Money Lane'(Hill). You proceed up that hill about an 1/8th of a mile, pass the Church Gate on the left and Cruz Views Condos on the right. Make the 'very next' left and our home is the second property on the left, with the aqua roof. We think our place is a great location. It is high enough to be out of the hustle of town, to take advantage of the view and the breezes, yet convenient to shopping and restaurants. You can even walk!
