Why Curtis Penn chose Great Cruz Bay

We actually built Bombalassy at it's location on St. John because is the most beautiful property to be able to enjoy the peaceful intimacy of the Great Cruz Bay harbor and a perfect vantage point to the many highlights St. John has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Curtis & Myrtle,

What a wonderful time we had here in St. John. This is our 3rd visit and each time we have stayed in your beautiful villas. Everything was just as we remembered from our last trip here. Thanks for providing the perfect setting for the perfect islands.

Our vacation in Villa Bombalassy was great.

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Villa Bombalassy was perfect. The villa itself had everything we needed. The views are spectacular from every room, the patio and decks The owners, Myrtle and Curtis are great. Curtis took us on a great boat trip around the island which was the highlight of our trip. Would definitely go back to Villa Bombalassy!

Beautiful Bombalassy

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark after our flight was delayed. Communicating with the Penn's was efficient and easy (via text), and Myrtle picked us up at the ferry dock. She kindly stopped at the grocery store so we could grab a few essentials before morning. Thank you!! The drive to Bombalassy was thrilling after dark - and when the sun came up in the morning - wow! - the view was magnificent! The pictures accurately portray the villa. The location was fabulous - the architect and landscaper did an outstanding job. The villa was absolutely perfect for our family of Mom, Dad and teenager. No detail was forgotten. The property was very clean and well-maintained. Customer service was flawless - communications with the Penn's were prompt and courteous. I would recommend this property without reservation to a friend or relative. At the villa, we enjoyed the outdoor showers (like being in Eden!) and watching the activity in the bay. We used the grill one night for burgers. We visited a new beach every day: Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay, Hawksnest Bay, Honeymoon Bay, Maho Bay and Hansen Bay. Get to Trunk Bay early and you have it to yourself! We snorkeled at every beach: saw a ribbon-like eel at Trunk Bay, turtles and tarpon at Maho Bay, starfish at Hansen's Bay. Lovely colored fish all around. One favorite was Hawksnest Bay where big waves = big fun!! Most mornings we stopped at the Baked in the Sun Bakery for coffee and a treat. We packed snacks and beverages in the provided cooler, and generally went for a late lunch/supper. We enjoyed the Sun Dog Cafe, Shipwreck Landing, Ocean Grill, and TWO trips to Candi's Delight Barbecue shack. YUM! Driving the roads of St. John is thrilling - with a beautiful view around every corner. St. John is lovely and the people were gracious and friendly.

Exceptional Service/Awesome View = Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Curtis and Myrtle (husband and wife owners of the property) went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Myrtle gave us a "tour" of the town just off the ferry when we picked up our rental car (a must IMHO for truly exploring St. John). We rented the car through Curtis. Great car with competitive rates. A gift basket was waiting in the villa upon our arrival. We were also pleasantly surprised to not have to buy coffee filters, spices, laundry detergent, dishwash soap, paper products, etc. which would have added up quickly at the ASTRONOMICALLY PRICED grocery stores. Curtis even helped me buy some fishing lures from his buddy when I found out that St. John does not have a tackle shop on the island (I left them for the next guest!)

The villa was beautiful. From the stainless steel appliances, to the comfortable beds/pillow, Villa Bombalassy was perfectly appointed. It had EVERYTHING we needed for a perfect stay (toaster, coffee maker, pots/pans, hairdryer, etc.). Nothing was left out. It had two A/C units in the bedrooms, but we never turned them on once, leaving the windows open (with screens so no bugs) and letting the Caribbean trade winds cool the house.

The views were awesome from every room in the villa. The pictures on the website are dead on. Looking down on the harbor in Great Cruz Bay and out to sea, was truly magical. We never grew tired of it.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND St. John and Villa Bombalassy. We'll be back!

Lovely home. Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We found the property in great condition. It was very convenient for a family of four to have all the living space under one roof and both the bedrooms upstairs (like a traditional home). There was occasionally a little bit of noise from the Westin but not much...and the bay had many lovely boats (yachts) to gaze upon.

We really liked the proximity to the grocery, town and the north shore beaches.

Above all, Myrtle and Curtis were a delight to work with. We will stay here again.

The views were awesome from every room in the villa. The pictures on the website are dead on. Looking down on the harbor in Great Cruz Bay and out to sea, was truly magical. We never grew tired of it.

The Top 5 experiences of our St. John trip were (in no particular order):

1) Hiking (best hikes were Reef Bay trail, Annaberg area/Leinster Bay trail, and Lind Point trail)

2) Boat trip on the Bad Kitty (a day trip to various islands which was well worth it, especially the Baths at Virgin Gorda)

3) Happy hour drinks on the beach at Cruz Bay ($3 drinks at Joe's Rum Hut…Painkiller's and Bushwacker's…yum!)

4) Beaches (our favorites were Cinnamon, Trunk, Maho, Saltpond and Hawksnest)

5) Snorkeling (saw plenty of turtle's at Maho Bay and even a spotted eagle ray)

Our favorite restaurants were Ocean Grill (in Mongoose Junction), ZoZo's at the Sugar Mill (in Caneel Bay Resort) and Rhumb Lines.

Some things we wished we would have done, but didn't have time for:

-Hiking the Ram's Head trail which we heard was breathtaking and similar to Ireland

-Taking a chartered fishing trip

-Snokeling Waterlemon Cay (supposedly the best on the island)

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND St. John and Villa Bombalassy. We'll be back!!
