I fell in love with St John, the gem of the islands. For years, our summer home was on Madeline Island in Wisconsin on Lake Superior. St. John became the perfect island winter home for us. We filled our days with beach-combing, snorkeling,hiking the National Park trails and learning the island history. Building our home here was a big adventure. I have completed the dream and I want to share it with you.
This island has been my home for 26 years. I have had guests for many of these years. I love to hear their stories and share mine.
What is nice about our home is the great uplifting feelings of dreams coming true Feel the soft breeze, the Trade Winds and cool nights. Sit on the Sky Lounge and star gaze.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2009
The beautiful view and trade winds above Great Cruz Bay took our heart away at first site. What a Caribbean island!
Come be my guest and tell me your story. Why did you come to St John?
I live on site, I'm here to answer any questions or at the end of your day, a solute and toast on the veranda to a beautiful sunset over the twinkling lights of the islands. Cheers!

Island rentals, your villa captured our hearts 12 years ago, and we’ve been coming back every year! Each day starts with cup of coffee while soaking up the amazing views of the Caribbean. From there on, well...…it’s whatever we feel like doing. Sometimes it’s venturing out and experiencing the many things St. John has to offer, and other times it’s just relaxing and indulging in a good book. This is our reward for all the hard work the rest of the year.
Thanks Jacqueline for understanding what “getting away” is all about and making sure we enjoy our time on island and guest villa.

My husband and I were ready for a much needed vacation. We are great "trip-takers," but a relaxing vacation is not our typical way to travel...although after this lovely get-away, it may be more often! I was looking for a great view, a unique spot, a large room to be able to settle into and enjoy, a pool for after the beach, a kitchenette for food & drinks so that we didn't have to go out for each meal. The White Seagull was perfect. I wasn't too enticed by the decor upon my first research, but found out later from the lovely Jacqueline that much of the decor is family heirlooms. The antiques and flair gave the room that much more warmth. Also, although Jacqueline lives on the property, we only saw her twice. She was so welcoming and genuinely happy to share her space, but we almost felt like we were the only ones there - very private. We went from bay to bay each day snorkeling, swimming with turtles and enjoying the beautiful water. We went out twice with Ocean Runner Boat Rentals, and had a wonderful time! Hung out a lot at the High Tide too - tasty food and good service. Also the X Bar for a cozy place away. More bays to enjoy, fish to swim with, and blue waters sooth the soul. We'll be back!
Our May week in “Just for Two” at the White Seagull was magical and restorative. Spectacular 270 degree views go on forever. Beautiful sunrises, rainbows and moonrises above Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole and on across the ocean toward St. Croix greet you from the front of the unit. Spectacular sunsets from the “Sky Lounge” to the twinkling lights of St. Thomas end each perfect day. The lovely infinity pool provided just the right refreshing invigoration following our daily excursions to our favorite, also magical, St. John beaches and snorkel spots. Beautifully appointed, the “Just for Two” studio is larger than it appears in the pictures, and is filled with wonderful antique furnishings and thoughtful personal touches. It includes a kitchenette and lovely bath with a huge shower that are very logically separated by sliding glass doors. While the kitchenette doesn’t include a stove, the availability of the grill in the pool area worked quite well for us. Dining poolside in the evenings was delightful. Our gracious host Jacqueline ensured we had everything we needed (even a sheet for the back of our rental jeep to catch sand!) Reliable Wi-Fi is a nice added amenity; we were able to check-in for our return flight with ease. We’ll be back to St. John again as soon as possible!
We just returned from a wonderful 8-day stay in the White Seagull, at "Just For Two" on St. John. This was a return trip for us, having stayed there, last May, as well. We rarely return to the same location, preferring to seek new adventures. This was a rare exception and a testimony to the wonder of this place - both St. John and Jacqueline's hospitality.
The room is wonderfully decorated and comfortable, with 270 degree views of the Caribbean. We overlook Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole from our windows, with views of St. Thomas from the Sky Lounge. It's amazing to wake to the early sunrise and see the ocean view, by simply sitting up in the bed. We took wonderful photos of the sunsets from the rooftop Sky Lounge and our location near the top of a mountain, overlooking the island. Jacqueline readily gave us access to her private patio, as well, providing wonderful views of Great Cruz Bay and relaxing surroundings to talk or simply play cards, in paradise!
The room is well decorated with antiques and personal items. There was good Wi-Fi access and a TV with limited channels, but we rarely used them. A fireplace was available, but we can't imagine using it, except in the dead of "winter"! The room offers a small kitchenette, suitable for simple breakfasts or lunch preparation. There is access to a grill in the courtyard, as well. However, we mostly enjoyed the wonderful food at all the restaurants on the island.
You definitely need to rent a car and we have had great experience with Courtesy Rental. The roads are steep, somewhat narrow and you get the challenge of driving on the left side. It's a challenge, but quickly becomes comfortable. The roads Just For Two are steep, but enjoyable. There is a back way that allows a "less steep" option, if it is rainy.
Next year is our 25th anniversary and we are planning to return, yet again. It's hard to argue with perfection - especially for a milestone date.
Can't say enough good things about our stay here. The location and easy access to Cruz Bay along with the best views on St John are just a couple of reasons while we will be back. But maybe the best part of our experience was having Jacqueline as our host! She was quick to help out any way she could, including sharing her favorite spots on the island that we might not have heard about in travel brochures. The villa was stocked with everythign we needed for a week long stay, including a cooler and beach chairs! Don't bother searching for another villa, it doesn't get better than this one.
My girlfriend and I spent our vacation on St. John and had the pleasure of staying in the White Seagull suite at Island Rentals. I want to start by saying the photo’s on the website do not do the place justice, it’s so beautiful inside and out. Gardens and flowers surround the modern villa. The view from the balconies and the awesome sky roof are truly breathtaking!! You can see St Thomas and the Great Cruz Bay and at night the stars look amazing. With the cool trade winds high atop the hill at Island Rentals we didn’t even need to use the air conditioning our entire stay. We opened a couple (of the three) sliding glass doors to let the breeze cool the room and allow us to enjoy the symphony of island wildlife as we drifted off to sleep. The frogs chirping and the winds blowing through the palm trees just outside were like a sweet lullaby. I’ve never slept so well in my entire life! The suite is truly amazing; everything you need is there. There are beach chairs, a cooler, towels and sunscreen. Buy food and grill by the amazing pool. The hot tub and the view from it were spectacular! The walk in shower was awesome. The building is modern and the rooms are decorated so beautifully. It even smells really good with all of the antique wood in the room! We rented a scooter, which I highly recommend (*if your riding skills are very strong, there’s lots of STEEP hills) and rode around the island, beach hopping and eating great foods all week. It was a truly amazing vacation. Trust me when I tell you it’s PERFECT!
I had the pleasure of talking with Jacqueline the owner of Island Rentals who lives adjacent to the rentals. She’s lovely woman who is very knowledgeable about the island. It was like having our own concierge. I really appreciated her help and found her advise on restaurants rock solid. She saved us a ton of money by helping us avoid tourist traps and turned us on to some hidden gems. I’ve stayed at the big resort and can honestly say I had a much better experience staying with Jacqueline at Island Rentals. I loved the privacy and intimacy of our suite, not to mention the view. I couldn’t imagine anything that would have made our experience any better. I fell in love with my girl all over again and somehow fell more in love with life. Thank you Jacqueline for giving me the gift of true relaxation and recovery. You are an angel!
I will be staying there again FOR SURE and highly recommen
My husband and I had wonderful time in the White Seagull villa we rented from Jacqueline. This is not the typical rental where you pick up your key and you’re on your own. Jacqueline met us after we arrived on the ferry and rented our jeep to follow her up to the villa. Her home is part of the property to which her four rental villas are connected. She was so friendly and helpful providing advice and making sure we had everything we needed. By the end of the week, we had become friends.
The White Seagull villa has a spectacular view overlooking Great Cruz Bay, Chocolate Hole, and Heart Bay, which you can enjoy from the rooftop patio (sky lounge), the living room and balconies on three sides. It has a partial kitchen and a gas grill and hot plate in the courtyard. There is a lovely pool with a view off the courtyard and access to the hot tub with a view down the stairs. The beach chairs and cooler that were provided were very much appreciated during our many outings to different gorgeous beaches every day. The sky lounge has private access from the villa and was a prime spot to have our morning coffee, watch the sunset with a pina colada, and gaze at the stars.
We also enjoyed staying in the Tropical Garden villa for the earlier part of the trip. We would stay in either one again. Jacqueline went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. We were sad to leave but very happy to have a new friend in St. John!
