SALT POND VISTA - PRIVATE, QUIET, & BEST VIEWS ON THE ISLAND

Johns Folly Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Salt Pond Vista is the dream destination you've been searching for on St. John, near Concordia. The newly renovated villa is private and quiet overlooking an endless expanse of VI National Park land. It is the best view on the island, including a breathtaking, sweeping, panoramic view of Drunk Bay, Ram's Head and Salt Pond Bay.

The two level villa is fully air-conditioned, has wireless Internet access and is tastefully decorated, complete with coral, rock and shell embedded walls in the traditional island style. The Main Level and Lower Level are quite private and separated by an exterior staircase. We offer rentals of the Main Level or the entire villa. We never rent the two levels to unrelated parties. This is a perfect vacation home for two couples or multi-generational families, allowing both togetherness and privacy.

The Main Level includes a kitchen/indoor dining/living room, tiled bathroom and spacious bedroom with a breakfast table. Both bedroom and living areas open onto a large, elegant, inviting deck where you will want to spend all your time. A partial roof overhang creates a shady area at all hours of the day, while the other half of the deck is always exposed to the sun for those who relish sunbathing. Deep cushioned loungers are perfect for relaxing, napping and reading on this breezy, scenic deck. Outdoor cooking and dining is also possible with a gas grill and large teak dining set.

The Lower Level includes one bedroom, tiled bathroom and galley kitchen/living room/dining area all of which open to a lovely deck.

Other amenities include outdoor showers and beach supplies.

Salt Pond Vista is remote enough so that you will need to rent a car. However there are two restaurants and one convenience store within walking distance. One of the best beaches and snorkeling areas on the island, Salt Pond Bay, is less than a five minute drive away or, if so inclined, hiking trails leading to the beach begin below the villa. Coral Bay and numerous other beaches, restaurants, and stores are close by, 10 minutes or less by car.

If you can imagine gazing at Caribbean waterviews from large decks, listening to the waves from Drunk Bay, watching sailboats glide by from afar, catching sight of humming birds magically suspended in the tropical flowers, seeing small geckos dart by, and breathing in the beauty of St. John at a relaxing pace, then Salt Pond Vista is the place for you. Come and enjoy this spectacular property!

We absolutely loved Salt Pond Vista. In our opinion, it was the best spot on the island. The house is very clean, and is equiped with everything you would ever need! Beach chairs, umbrella, coolers and snorkeling equipment are all there and available for you to use. We rented both floors of the house. The kids had the top floor at night & we had the bottom floor. There was only one thing wrong with our stay here... it was too short! If we are lucky enough to come back to St. John sometime we will have to stay longer than just one week.
You need a 4x4 vehicle to get around the island for sure! There are so many places to explore!

Wonderful vacation home!

This home was just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. Clean and wonderful. We felt like we were in heaven. Great kitchen, porch and bed. Even the snorkeling equipment was supplied. We loved every minute of our week long stay!

Best view in Caribbean

  • 5 of 5
This place is a hidden gem in the entire Caribbean. The description is so modest, we didn't know what to expect before we arrived the house. It's beautiful, peaceful almost mesmerizing with lights and sounds of island. The beach is absolutely clean and picturesque, it was very hard to come back to the real world. The owner, Pam was patient and resourceful, and was prompt to provide us tips and guidance for the first timer. The managing company was also very friendly although the information they provide us about a barge during holiday was not accurate. The website about a barge from St Thomas to St. John was very helpful and accurate. Certainly now, we know a little bit about St John and Salt Pond Vista, we'd like to come back. Next time we'll have to make sure to rent a4x4, although our family was able to manage with a standard size car. We reserved a 4x4, when we arrived to the car rental agency(Budget) they didn't provide us what we reserved. We 'll not trust Budget rental again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, Ryo Sook. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Salt Pond Vista. We agree that it is a very peaceful, relaxing place in paradise that can sometimes be hard to describe adequately. We're sorry about the miscommunication of ferry schedules from the management company. Holiday schedules are sometimes a moving target on the island, undergoing many changes. Unfortunately, it is not the first time we have heard complaints about that particular car rental agency on St. Thomas. Hopefully you'll be able to rent a car on St. John for your next trip. The key is to rent a car well in advance of your trip. We hope you'll return to Salt Pond again in the near future.

My hubby and I went for our 10 year anniversary and had the best time!! Salt Pond vista exceeded our expectations! It had everything we could have asked for, and the view from the upper balcony was breathtaking. Bring your hiking shoes! There are some great trails and beaches that you can have to yourself if you can find them :) You will need 4 wheel drive to stay here but that's like most the island. Our favorite spot to snorkel was Salt Pond. We saw so many beautiful fish and also a few turtles a small shark and a sting ray!! Might want to bring a waterproof camera! Something I wish we had done. We are hoping to go back ASAP and when we do we will want to stay here!!

If you like quiet, Salt Pond Vista offers some of the best views on the island, and walking access to outstanding and not very crowded snorkeling beaches (Salt Pond Bay and Blue Cobblestone beach off the Ram's Head trail). Nice kitchen, bathrooms, and beds, but by far the best feature of Salt Pond Vista is the back porch! Watch storms come in over the Caribbean, view St. Croix, listen to waves crashing on Drunk Bay, watch Bananaquits and hummingbirds playing in water baths, pick a papaya from the tree hanging over the deck, or just take a nap (which we did often!). You are also only a mile or two from several restaurants in Coral Bay. We had 3 children and 3 adults in the party and rented both units which provided adequate space. You'll want a 4-wheel drive to get around the Saint John roads. Wonderful, wonderful vacation!

Spectacular Views

  • 4 of 5
The views from this villa are spectacular! It is a beautiful setting and very comfortable accomodations. The only drawbacks are no washer and dryer, and no TV in the upstairs living area. We were also unaware of the layout of the villa. The downstairs is a separate unit with a separate entrance. Each unit has only one bedroom and one bathroom. Overall, it is an awesome vacation villa, especially for two couples or two small families.
