About The Owner

I came from the beautiful north, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Summers in the north and winters vacation on St John are the best. What a wonderful exchange to move from sunny days to sunny days.

This island St John has been my home for 26 years. I have had guest for many of these years and love to share my stories and hear their's. The island has changed so much over the years. No one would know where you lived when you said St John, now they do. The homes back then were small, colorful, and open. No one had air conditioning, we had ceiling fans only.

What is nice about our home on St John is the breeze, the Trade Winds blow all the time. The house sits at the top of the hill. giving us cool nights. The view is spectacular of the ocean, bays, valleys and hills. Mystical and magical the view will lift your heart, make you sing and set your soul to a dance. Yes, to dream again.

Why The Owner chose Great Cruz Bay

The( Spectacular) view above Great Cruz Bay took our breath away at first site. What a Caribbean island!

Come be my guest and tell me your story. Why did you come to St John? Warm!

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!

What makes this villa unique

Serene gardens full of luscious tropical flowers frame the magnificent ocean views. The peaceful surroundings, the sounds of nature, and the touch of the breezes will take your breath away! Wake with a cup of warn coffee on the veranda and know your dream is alive..

Grocery stores and restaurants and take-out food are available only a few minutes away. Finding the special gift is easy when it's just minutes away. The Westin Resort welcomes outside guests and offers dinning on the beach, gift stores, tennis, spa and classes in aqua exercise in the Westin spectacular pool. Spend a day of resort living and come home to your private villas Tropical Orchid and Tropical Garden

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest: Honeymooners(Minnesota)

Date of Stay: 03/09/10 Review Submitted: 07/22/10



My husband and I stayed at this villa for a week during our honeymoon. We had stayed on St. Thomas earlier but we both agree that St. Johns is our favorite of the two islands! We greatly enjoyed our time at the villa and it looks just like the pictures. The private deck was our favorite spot of the home and it is a great place for morning breakfast/evening sunsets. At night you can sometimes even hear music from the Westin Resort far below. It is very peaceful. And the owner, Jacqueline, is wonderful! She met us at the ferry in Cruz Bay and drove us personally to her home. The drive up is quite an adventure but you will get used to it by the end of your stay! She also lives on site in the main house and was very welcoming. She is a great resource and will make sure you have everything you need. I highly recommend any of her rentals! One note: I recommend renting a 4 wheel drive car for your time on the island. It will give you the freedom to explore the island and great beaches - our favorite was Cinammon Beach. And a short drive down into town gives you plenty of options for restaurants and shopping. There is also a great grocery store near the villa that will have everything you need in case you want to make use of the grill and kitchen in the unit. Overall, our experience was wonderful and we would definitely consider staying here again in the future

Great little get-a-way for a couple

  • 5 of 5

I found Jacque's place on Home Away (http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p283835) and it was just the perfect spot. It is close enough to town to be convenient, but not so close that you were in it. Had a great view of the harbor, the accommodations are perfect for a couple, and the Jacuzzi was the icing on the cake. She was very helpful but left us to our own to enjoy. I would highly recommend this rental and will be back!

Perfect for us for 18 years now.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in the Tropical Orchids for 2 wks for 18 years now. Very quiet, private and a fabulous view. Jacqueline is a gracious host. In the tropics fresh water is a very precious resource and we respect that. We always look forward to our winter get

away. We love everything unique about St. John.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at Tropical Garden at Island Rentals for 12 days in February, 2015

Pros: Private, isolated, seems secure, beautiful views, wonderful breezes, quality windows, sliding doors, screens exclude insects. Good cross ventilation. Beautiful comfortable bed & furniture. Mountainside location provides advantages/disadvantages. Lush flora, colorful birds (and bees!), like living in a tropical tree house. Very dark at night.

Cons: Limited water supply and very limited and tepid "hot" water combined with inadequate sewer system. A sign in the bathroom reads: "In this land of fun and sun, we don't flush for number one."

According to the owner, the site depends entirely upon rainwater stored in & pumped from a cistern. She suggests “navy style”showers: Water on get wet, off to shampoo, on for rinse, etc. No water during blackouts.

Be ready to haul your trash and unflushed odorous tissue up the stairs & transport out to public dumpsters daily.

When we arrived we found the floors had not been scrubbed, the flatware & tray were dirty, and the top of the fridge was filthy with kitchen grease and dust. There were bugs in the utensil holder & crawling on the counter tops. It was up to us to scrub the floor & boil water to sterilize the flatware.

Slippery and poorly lit or unlit stairways: Down two flights to entrance, down another to grill. Up 4th to hot tub.

No back-up power and no emergency lighting. Extremely small TV & cable service = 2-3 English language channels. WIFI is hit and miss. No dishwasher. Bedroom is cramped. No smoke or CO detectors on an island where fire fighting is a real challenge.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This little villa Tropical Garden was perfect for the two of us. Just as shown on the site everything was as described so we were just thrilled.

Views,views,views! and the villa tucked down and into the hillside was very private. It was truly a get away from it all experience. Beautiful views of Chocolate Hole, Great Cruz Bay with the early morning sun rise and a full afternoon sun. Jacqueline our host was wonderful. Offered tips for dining, shopping and activities. Also left us to ourselves for complete privacy yet reachable by phone for any needs we had. 1st time to St John for us, kids all grown up and just the two of us starting our lives alone again what a great beginning!!

Excellent villa and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Tropical Orchid for 7 days in March 2014. The villa is wonderful. Gorgeous views of Great Cruz Bay, Chocolate Hole. We could see St Croix on clear days and the sunrises and sunsets were amazing. The villa had everything needed to make our stay comfortable - full kitchen, a hot tub, nice outdoor porch and off street parking. Short drive to town of Cruz Bay. We felt very safe. I can't say enough good things about St John. The people are friendly and fun and the island is beautiful! Jacqueline was a wonderful host. Can't wait to return.

Best Value on St John

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed here for eight days. 'Just for 2' has all anyone could ask for when staying on St John: awesome view of Great Cruz Bay, comfortable Caribbean furnishings, complete kitchen, incredible & beautiful landscaping, attentive landlord, convenient location to Centerline and Southside Road and more. Ideal for honeymooners and couples of all ages. We will definitely be back. Thanks JP!

PS; We recommend Skinny Legs, Woody's Seafood, Lime Inn, Spyglass for very good and affordable drinks & meals. For snorkeling check out Hansen, Francis, Jumbie and Leinster Bays. Be on the lookout for deer, donkeys, land & sea turtles, goats, chickens and more.
