CAPTAIN'S VIEW - BEST CRUZ BAY LOCATION, BEST VIEWS FROM CRUZ BAY!

Cruz Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This two-bedroom/two-bath villa on a hillside overlooking Cruz Bay is the perfect location for watching the yachts and sailboats cruise in and out of the bay. Owned by a sea captain, the house features stunning sunset views across Pillsbury Sound to St. Thomas. An extensive network of decks down to the pool level offers multiple opportunities for socializing or privacy.

A five-minute walk takes you past the gourmet grocery store and into town for shopping and fine dining. A five-minute drive takes you to the first of a string of gorgeous National Park beaches.

Captain’s View is the perfect St. John accommodation for one or two couples. The two king bedrooms have private baths; they’re air conditioned and equipped with satellite TV. You can stay connected with high-speed WifF (most of the time!).

Guestbook comments from the owner
Never expecting to return to the same destination, we have now spent 15 years enjoying BJs accomodations at both Harbor View and Captains View. Captains View offers a spectacular view of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas, magnificent sunsets, great for relaxing breakfastsand chill out evenings. Centrally located, within walking distance of shopsand restaurants. The interior is spacious, spotless, with a beautiful decor. We cannot wait for our next stay.

Ten years after sailing my classic ocean racer to the Virgin Islands, I bought what was at that time a plywood cabin on a sparsely populated hill above Cruz Bay, the main port of entry on St. John. St. John is arguably the finest Caribbean island with beautiful beaches and fabulous views. Since then, the house has grown into a wonderful rental property with incredible views of the harbor, sound and St. Thomas in the distance. Sunsets are incomparably beautiful and the morning water colors are shades of turquoise that are hard to believe. The convenience of walking just minutes to the grocery store or to restaurants and shopping in town, plus the privacy of being at the end of a little road, surrounded by undevelopped land, equals the perfect vacation retreat. I'm sure you will love it as much as I do!

BJ purchased this house in 1989

The incomparable view of the harbor, the stunning sunsets, the early morning palette of blues, would sell this location alone. Add to that the privacy of a dead-end road and the five minute walk into town, and you have the perfect spot for a vacation house.

Evening meals on the verandah, with the breeze coming down the undevelopped hillside, the twinkle of lights on St. Thomas, the wafting of Caribbean music from town, all make Captain's View a great place to stay.

IDEAL IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I shared a somewhat last-minute mother-daughter vacation in St. John, and were fortunate enough to find a rare vacancy at Captain's View. We felt SO lucky--this spacious two-bedroom was both elegant and comfortable, convenient and quiet. Every morning we ate breakfast on the wide porch overlooking the bay; the kitchen was very well equipped and we could have eaten there, but we wanted to sample the local restaurants..... We never felt the need to rent a car (neither of us loves driving, especially on the "wrong" side of the road); taxis are easily available to any part of the island, and we spent most days hiking or in the water. The walk to town was quick and easy; and yes, the walk back up (especially the last few feet) was demanding--but I'm a 70-year-old with mildly arthritic knees, and I made it with no problems--probably good for me! BJ, the owner, graciously drove us to the ferry on our last morning. I'm determined to make it back someday, and I don't want to stay anywhere else!

EXCELLENT VIEW AND VALUE

  • 4 of 5
You can't beat the location of this villa. It's just minutes from everything in town. And the views are outstanding. The driveway is steep but nothing that anyone coming to this adventure-filled island should be concerned about (but folks with disabilities would find this difficult).

UNBEATABLE LOCATION AND VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
We have visited St. John a number of times and knew we wanted to stay close to the restaurants and night life of Cruz Bay. Captains View was the perfect choice. Not only were we able to walk to town but we had probably the best view from our balcony. It was a treat to watch the town wake up in the morning while enjoying a coffee on the deck. Later in the day the activity of day charter boats jockeying by customs was entertaining and the sunsets were fantastic. The walk to and from town was manageable as long as you are in reasonable shape and helped to work off some of the extra calories we enjoyed at the restaurants. There is lots of room at Captains View and the amenities are not luxurious but certainly more than adequate. Because of the location we were able to eliminate the car rental and made do with the Vitran bus, taxis and day trip on the water. We will definitely stay at Captains View on our future visits.

CAPTAINS VIEW JUNE 2013

  • 5 of 5
Excellent vacation for two couples celebrating 30th anniversary. The condo had a home feeling to it, truly felt you were in the USVI. View from balcony outstanding and location allowed us to walk into town. Steep walk up/down driveway - but was manageable. If mobility problems, not the place. BBQ on balcony made for wonderful meals and the 4 beach chairs backpacks we used everywhere!! Recommend jeep if traveling around the island.

Have stayed in five other VBRO's and this one did not disappoint. Not luxury, but more than suitable for those wanting a great place at a affordable price.

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS

  • 5 of 5
BJ,

Words cannot express how thankful we are for the week we had on the island of St. John. Wow! What an amazing place. The house was incredible. Drinking coffee in the morning on the beautiful deck, the spectacular sunsets. Everything was absolutely perfect. The Island is beyond beautiful. Thanks for making our honeymoon something that I will never forget.
