HONEYMOON/ROMANTIC PRIVATE SUITE WITH OCEAN VIEW & POOL

Fish Bay Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Little Palm Guest Suite, located in the garden level of a quaint island stone cottage, is the perfect romantic getaway. Half of our guests are honeymooners. Situated high a top a hill that borders the National Park, it has spectacular 280 degree views of the Caribbean. For those who desire a more secluded location with luxurious furnishings, yet priced lower than the two island resort hotels.

The impeccably furnished interior boasts a King Size poster bed with a comfortable pillow top mattress. The room has a sitting area with snakeskin mosaic tile table and 2 chairs. The oversized mahogany French doors open to the ocean view and a private coral tiled deck. 2 additional French doors open to a private covered porch and patio. The suite includes a custom kitchenette area with sink, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster oven & coffee maker, ice maker and an outside grill with side burner for cooking.

The luxury bath with custom cabinetry contains glistening white carrera marble. The large shower with glass tile accents features an ocean view window and is big enough for two.

The Guest Suite has its own separate staircase and entry, with its own private covered porch, balcony and patio. Little Palm is situated in a quiet neighborhood.

A beautiful iridescent glass tiled pool with a bench allows you to relax while enjoying the panoramic ocean view...a wonderful spot to enjoy the sunset and cocktail after the beach. (See pool details under amenities.) Little Palm's guest suite is the perfect place to pamper yourself and your mate for a wonderful carribean vacation you will never forget!

No smoking is permitted on the premises. A rental car will be required for your stay; 2 dr 4WD Wrangler is recommended. (You will probably not use the 4WD, but Jeep type vehicles sit higher off the ground making them better for St John roads.) The roads are all paved from the ferry to your front door.

Below are unsolicited, unedited comments from guests who stayed at Little Palm:

“Thanks for having a wonderful property!” Alan & Lisa M – Leland, MI

“We just want you to know how much we enjoyed staying at Little Palm Suite. It was a beautiful house with a spectacular view on such a friendly island!

Thank you for letting us stay there - we will recommend your piece of paradise to others!” Gary & Allison C. – Richmond, VA

“I had a satisfying, comfortable, relaxing stay. Would like to do it again. Perhaps next year?

- Ed O. Columbia, Maryland

Hi, my name is Michael Krienik and I invite you to share the wonderful paradise of St John. I first discovered St John 30 years ago via a cruise to St Thomas with a short snorkel junket to Trunk Bay Beach in St John. I was hooked. In March of 2003 I purchased land, some say its the best lot on the whole south side of the island, with its 230 degree breathtaking ocean views. I completed Little Palm Guest Suite in August of 2009 as a place where guests can truly enjoy the best St John has to offer. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have about my villa or St John in general.

Michael Krienik - Owner purchased this studio in 2009

I spent an entire week, 8 hours a day, on the island looking at every parcel of land available. In the end, the panoramic views, the cooling trade winds, the privacy, the gentle sounds of the surf, the views of three different bays, the sunrise and sunset...I was not able to find anything that compares.

The tradewinds will keep you cool as you see one of the most spectacular views on the entire south shore. Enjoy, sunrises and sunsets!

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose St. John for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier with our selection of Palm Vista for our stay. Having never been to St. John before the assistance in getting our rental car and getting us situated was great as we arrived tired and ready to chill. This place had everything we needed for the perfect honeymoon and vacation; the views are priceless we almost didn't want to leave to go out and explore some days as it was amazing waking up in Fish Bay and enjoying our coffee by the pool or balcony. Beautiful every time of day. Michael is a wonderful host with great staff and we plan on returning.

ANOTHER WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at this lovely property set above the Caribbean Sea. Even though you are perched several hundred feet above the sea, you can still hear the ocean waves crashing on shore. The suite is well equipped, very comfortable and private. The addition of the personal ice maker is a great feature. Made plenty of ice for cocktails at sunset and we would bag some for the beach cooler for the next day. Not once did we have to buy ice on the island this time. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel or full size villa. Michael's restaurant recommendations are always spot on. You have to try ZoZo's at Caneel Bay. Make your reservations 2 weeks ahead of time. We sat at the bar for dinner and loved it. For sailing and snorkeling, we have used Captain Greg of the Spitfire which is based out of Caneel Bay Resort as well. We recommend a full day sail with lunch. For good wine at reasonable island prices, try Island Cork located in the back parking lot of Mongoose Junction.

Thanks Michael for another great stay. We will be back.

A WEEK IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the Little Palm Suite was wonderful! The suite was exactly as described in the posting and was accurately displayed in the photos. The view of Fish Bay off the deck was amazing! It was a beautiful sight to look forward to every morning. The suite was very clean and well-stocked with necessities. Both the inside and outside (grounds) at the suite were extremely well-maintained. We appreciated having beach towels and beach chairs provided for us to use for our daily trip(s) to the beaches.
Michael was a wonderful host! The information he provided to prior to our trip was extremely helpful as we made our plans. He was so helpful to us during our stay as well with directions and with restaurant and beach recommendations. We enjoyed ALL of the restaurants that he recommended. Our personal favorites were the Sun Dog Cafe for breakfast/lunch and the Lime Inn and Fish Trap for dinner. We loved being able to eat every meal outside for an entire week! The ice cream shop at the end of Mongoose Junction was also a favorite.
Our favorite north side beaches were Hawksnest (smaller and not very busy) and Trunk Bay (busier, but SO beautiful and picturesque).
We really enjoyed the laid-back pace on St. John and had a truly relaxing week. I really enjoyed staying a little bit outside of Cruz Bay and the location in Fish Bay was perfect. We would highly recommend Little Palm Suite!
Thank you, Michael for sharing your home with us and for helping us enjoy our week in paradise!

FABULOUS VILLA WITH A MOST GRACIOUS HOST!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending a week on St. John at Little Palm. We had a wonderful and special 11th year anniversary. This was not the first time that we researched a vacation through VRBO. After picking St. John, we wanted to find somewhere that had been given lots of reviews. Those describing Little Palm were right about the lovely property and the breathtaking views. They also highlight the fact that Michael is wonderful host. We couldn’t agree more!
Little Palm has all you need to serve as home base for exploring this beautiful island. We took adventures each day with coolers and lawn chairs. We often got back mid afternoon with provisions to enjoy the pool, the sunset, and a BBQ. We grabbed steaks and fixings for one evening for the grill, we had burgers another couple evenings, and chicken on another night, all with grilled veggies on the side. All this on Michael‘s brand new grill! We made eggs and toast most mornings to get going while watching cruise ships leave St Thomas. The property enjoys both the sunrise and sunset.
St. John is a special place and it was made that much more special by the combinations of a well designed and stunning space to stay and the bonus gift of spending time with a gracious host. All wrapped up atop a skytop view of a breathtaking island.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA. BREATHTAKING VIEW.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in this villa for three years in a row (so far). The place is beautiful, high up on a ridge overlooking Fish Bay. The view is amazing. It’s private, yet within 10 minutes of Cruz Bay. Michael is a great host and will go out of his way to provide any guidance you seek while on St John. This is a perfect spot for a couple and the pictures can’t do it justice!

SPECTACULAR VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time in St. John. The property was very clean and well maintained. We had a little glitch with an electrical issue but Michael was very accommodating. He was super helpful with any questions we had and really paid attention to anything we needed. The views from the deck are unbelievable and we so enjoyed having our coffee there in the morning and cocktails at night under the stars. The snorkeling was great, we went to Maho Bay and Trunk Bay (Trunk was a little busy and there is a $4.00 fee to enter). Try to get to Coral Bay and eat at Lucy's, really pretty spot on the water. The pictures were spot on although the pool is shared with the owner but it was not a problem as he we didn't see him when we were in the pool. Be sure to bring bug spray and anti itch cream!! Cruz Bay is about a 10-15 minute drive and there are a lot of restaurants, we loved Spyglass. You can get sandwiches to go at a deli in Mongoose Junction if you want for the beach (Michael has coolers and beach chairs). There are quite a few stairs to the suite, not a problem for us but just an fyi. We had a great, relaxing time. Thanks Michael!!!
