AQUA BAY VILLA; COASTAL ELEGANCE, WALK TO TOWN, NICE VALUE FOR COUPLES OR FAMILY

Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Aqua Bay Villa is a large Caribbean style manor house; set in a private compound consisting of charming, fully equipped vacation rental suites, a courtyard, pool and gazebo. An approximate eight minute walk to Cruz Bay where most of the activities, restaurants and shopping are located and in close proximity to Frank Bay, a nice snorkeling beach on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. John.

The classic Caribbean architecture of the villa resides behind a native stone wall and entry gate; lush, tropical landscaping with flowering gardens and birds await your arrival. Our villa has gorgeous southwest ocean views and breathtaking sunsets over St. Thomas and the neighboring islands.

All located within the St. John tropical style villa; each of the villa's suites have a kitchen, dining and living area plus an air-conditioned master bedroom with the bathroom en suite. The verandas and decks overlook palm trees surrounding the swimming pool, an Audobon Bird Pond Sanctuary and the Caribbean Sea beyond. Mahogany doors and details, high vaulted ceilings in two of the suites, custom tile floors and covered verandas reflect the tropical Caribbean lifestyle. Quality furniture from all over the world as well as lighting and artwork made by the islands artisans create an authentic St. John villa experiance.

We stayed at the Villa on our very first trip to St. John and through the years we went from villa to condo, all over the island in search of the best villa rental location on St. John. We ended up coming full circle, back to 'Aqua Bay', the best of both worlds, offering our guests both privacy in a lovely neighborhood and close proximity to the charming village of Cruz Bay.

In addition to the location, many of the views are wonderful! One really feels you are living on the island; upon waking up and bringing your coffee or herbal tea out to the veranda to watch the island 'wake-up' and the boats go by, all through out the day; whether you head to the gorgeous beaches nearby or relax at 'home' by the pool. In the evening, it is fun to walk to town and enjoy the many scrumptious restaurants or just prepare a wonderful dinner in your own kitchen and end the day watching the sun set and the stars appearing above.

A beautiful Villa on St. John, USVI

  • 5 of 5
Aqua Bay Villa exceeded all of our expectations!!! The villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. Conviently located to downtown Cruz Bay (a short walk) and a few steps from Frank Bay which has some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever see. The owners are very accesible and will make sure your stay will be a memorable experience. Their management and cleaning team are exceptional. We have been to this beautiful island over 20 times and Aqua Bay Villa is by far the nicest property we have had the pleasure to rent.

SENTIMENTAL SENIORS ENJOYING SPECTACULAR SUNSETS !! :)

  • 5 of 5
My husband did his review but being a typical wife I wanted the last word!!! :) Aqua Bay Villas what is there not to like. This was our second visit to Aqua Bay Villas the first staying with my husband's sister in the Dolphina. We loved the villa, the location and working with the owners made it an easy decision to return the following year. We stayed in L'Isle Amour this past year and loved it. The views are breathtaking. Breakfast on the veranda watching the ships go by is a fantastic way to start your day. At night watching the sunset with a cocktail and cooking on the grille is a perfect way to end the day. A trip to Starfish for groceries and you are good to go. A short walk to Frank Bay or Cruz Bay for happy hour make this location perfect. No need for a car unless you want to visit another part of the island. We are returning for 6 weeks in 2014 to our home away from home!! :)

Owner's Response: Hello Penny!

Your review put such a smile on our faces, thank you for giving us a great start to our day! Your descriptions really brought us back to the many wonderful moments, both at Aqua Bay Villas and on St. John, especially since we are not there all of the time to be able to enjoy the villa and that beautiful island.

I love L' Isle Amour too, just as you described...watching the island wake up first thing in the morning and then a cocktail in the evening, the constellations are amazing too, have you seen them from the master bedroom veranda? I love to cook in that particular kitchen; it is bright and airy with all of the windows and the high ceilings, the views are inspiring. (My husband loves the veranda on Dolphina, he takes out his telescope so we can catch a better view of the boats going by, and the islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas.) We really appreciate your complimentary comments and we are looking forward to having you and Mike back at the villa, perhaps one of these times we will be together to toast those gorgeous sunsets, thank you again!

Kindest regards,

Leslie & Theo

Just a beautiful location with fantastic water views and walking distance to downtown Cruz Bay.

The villa was very clean and had everything you need on site. Nothing better than waking up overlooking the ocean. A short walk to the beach, Cruz Bay and the local restaurants and shops. We liked it so much we booked it for 2014 as soon as we got home in March.

Owner's Response: Hello Michael & Penelope,

We are so happy that you will be staying at Aqua Bay Villas again! We really appreciate our return guests, which many of whom become friends. We are so glad that you like the location and the views, (one of the primary reasons we fell in love with the villa too!) The close proximity to town yet quiet neighborhood was another reason.

We are very lucky to have one of the best housekeepers on the island in addition to a wonderful management team; they will all be excited to hear that you will be returning as well!

Thank you so much, we are really looking forward to seeing you again!

All our best,

Leslie & Theo

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5
We've loved our stays at Aqua Bay Villas. We were first introduced to the lovely Villas when we were invited to stay with my sister and brother-in-law not once but twice. We stayed in the loft bedroom in Dolphina and felt as though we were in a tropical treehouse..morning coffee and a view from the porch, what a great way to start the day...then walks to Frank Bay for our ocean fix, we were hooked. The Villas have four units and this past year we stayed in Azul la Mer....cozy, private, great little deck and easy pool access. Can't wait for this coming year and a stay at A la Plage. The owners have been just wonderful, making sure our accommodations are perfect for a great get-a-away. A perfect place to experience the island!

Owner's Response: Hello Ed & Donna!

Thank you for the wonderful review; we are excited to have you back and that you will be staying in A' la Plage this time, (the "famous" hammock awaits your arrival!)

We are so happy that you like the villa as well, it is a "Great Escape," (well said) especially for couples - lots of privacy yet close enough to get together with family and/or friends and an easy walk to the beach or town. We love the proximity to Cruz Bay as well, we do not feel quite so quilty walking back to the villa after indulging in a delicious dinner in town! In the event that you want to cook at home, A' la Plage is getting all new appliances, new mahogany cabinetry, etc. so you will have a beautiful, updated kitchen soon.

Thank you again for taking the time to send this review, we really appreciate it and we look forward to hearing about your next February vacation at Aqua Bay Villas!

All our best,

Leslie & Theo

Vacation In Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Aqua Bay Villas is perfect for a vacation on St John. The villa has 4 separate units and we stayed in Dolphina, which is the unit with a loft 2nd bedroom, so my sister in law and her husband joined us. They loved waking up to the beautiful views of the ocean each morning. The owners, could not be nicer and the unit has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay; kitchen fully equipped, beach chairs, grille on the massive covered veranda, and a small pool to enjoy after a day on the beach. The location is perfect, good snorkeling & sunsets at Frank Bay, 5 minute walk to Cruz Bay, restaurants & bars and the manager picked us up at the ferry dock and even took us for a quick trip to the grocery store! The unit is immaculate and lived up to all our expectations. We have recommended this to our friends and can't wait for our next visit!!

Owner's Response: Hi Ron & Kathy,

Thank you for the fantastic review, we really appreciate it and it is completely our pleasure as well as getting to know you both!

Your great comments mean the world to us and we love to have you stay year after year! St. John attracts really wonderful individuals such as yourselves which help make the island so special.

We are so glad that your family is able to join you at different times during your stay as well; the villa seems ideal for providing a tropical getaway for couples in addition to families, Dolphina's spacious veranda is wonderful for entertaining yet there is plenty of privacy at the villa when needed for both.

We are also happy that our location has really worked well for you; not needing a car for a lengthy stay has it's advantages, especially during high season when parking in Cruz Bay becomes quite precious!

We are really looking forward to seeing you again in January, we can't wait to spend time together and enjoy a beverage on Dolphina's veranda, thank you again!

All our very best,

Leslie & Theo

Our Wonderful Stay at A La Plage and Azul la Mer

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at Aqua Bay Villas. The 2 villas we stayed in were wonderfully decorated with tropical decor and original artwork of the area. It was truly a secret tropical hideaway for us. Every morning we ate breakfast on A La Plage's lovely porch. We walked to town easily and often, and down to Frank Bay, so close by, for sunsets. The beds were extremely comfortable, the pool was refreshing, the iguanas in the lush trees by the pool were a wonderful entertainment for the 2 kids. The a/c was wonderfully cool for the warm summer nights. We loved the showers with views out to the back gardens. The kitchens were well equipped. Parking our rental car was easy, we did not need a 4wd car! I recommend these villas highly. This was one of the best vacations we have ever had, a perfect base for all our hiking and beach days around the island. There were plenty of books to choose from, could spend months there reading (I enjoyed a Carl Hiaasen novel!) Thank you so much to the owners!

Owner's Response: Hi Melinda,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review; we are really happy that you and your family had such a great time at Aqua Bay and we loved hearing about your vacation!

The pictures that you sent to us were wonderful too; enjoying the pool and gazebo full of books has become a popular little destination after a day at the beach or when guests just want to relax at "home."
We have to thank our guests as well, as many are avid readers and are quite generous by contributing their own books to our gazebo after they have finished reading them.

We were thrilled that you liked the decor and especially that you found that the beds are very comfortable, we know how important a good mattress and quality linens are to an excellent sleep!

We are looking forward to catching up with you again soon and would love to have you return to Aqua Bay on your next St. John Vacation!

Thank you again,

Leslie & Theo
