Why Deborah Visalli chose Gift Hill

After traveling the world we settled on St. John because of its unsurpassed beauty. Villa Capiz took our breath away and it was love at first sight.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I desperately needed to get away and unplug. Villa Capiz has been the perfect oasis for us. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. It's simply awesome. Your attention to every little detail did not go unnoticed nor unappreciated-inside and out! This was our first trip to St. John and God-willing not our last! Thank you again for all the TLC you've put into your home. We'll be back! P.S. OMG What a view!

2nd trip, just gets better!

  • 5 of 5

This house works perfect for us, amazing view, great pool and the owner is a pleasure to deal with. Very helpful planning a trip. The house has great space and plenty of room to stretch out. The only problem here is the week seems to go to fast!

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a family vacation to St. John and wanted to share our fantastic experience at Villa Capiz. The house istself is spacious and well appointed, and the grounds are amazing. Peter met us at the ferry and took us up to the house and gave us a detailed tour of the property, went over important information about the area, and even gave us some great restaurant recommendations. Peter even connected with us at the end of the week with helpful information about the airport, ferry schedules, etc. Thanks Peter! Lots of great features about the house but the views steal the show, the sunsets are breathtaking! This house is great for families and couples, and makes a great starting point for your daily adventures on St. John. I highly recommend this property, and hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Bill, Thank you so much for your heartfelt review! It makes me so happy to hear that folks appreciate the property and have a really good time! You're right, the views are spectacular and need to be experienced for the full "wow" factor. It changes constantly, day to night, day to day. St John is such a special place, and Villa Capiz, in our experience, captures an amazing awareness of the beauty of nature, all within a very comfortable oasis. We look forward to your return!

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Although it's been almost 2 months since our St John vacation at Villa Capiz, the villa still shines bright in my mind. Looking out at the vistas from the decks is an experience unmatched on the island. This property is unique and the attention to detail is evident everywhere you turn. The large landscaped yard keeps everything very private and makes it easy to appreciate the tropical island atmosphere. Although we didn't bring our kids on this trip, they will come next time and they'll really enjoy the pool and hot tub. This trip was 2 couples, and there are 2 master bedroom suites, perfect. The third bedroom is on the upper level, as is a third bathroom, and the house can easily accommodate 6 guests. I can't say enough about how beautiful this property is, and how much we enjoyed our time here!

Owner's Response: Hi Cynthia, Thank you for the kind words and insights about the property. Sounds like you easily adopted "island time" and fully enjoyed the vacation with your friends! The pool and hottub make every day extra fun. The 2 master bedroom suites really do work well for 2 couples, and the 3rd bedroom and bath round it out nicely for a family or other group of 6 guests. The one master does have a twin daybed as well, so 7 guests can be accomodated, if needed. We look forward to your return with family!

Beautiful experience

Feb 22- March 1

My girlfriend and I recently celebrated her 50th birthday at Villa Capiz. Our experience could not have been better. The villa was outstanding in every way, from the impossible-to-explain gorgeous views at any time of the day or night, to the comfy bed and well equipped kitchen. The large walk out showers added to the great feel of this house. We loved the privacy and romantic setting of Viila Capiz. Artwork is everywhere, from the beautiful carved Capiz doors throughout, to bronze statues in the gardens, and original paintings on every wall. The property is ideally located close to town for restaurants and shopping and there's a well stocked grocery store just a couple minutes away. It's the perfect retreat after a day of exploring the unbelievable St John beaches. Although this is a 3 bedroom house, we felt very comfortable with just the 2 of us. There are 2 master en suite bedrooms, and we hope to return soon with some family. Kids will love this place too. Cannot speak too highly of Villa Capiz and can't wait for another visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Scott! It was truely our pleasure to have you stay at Villa Capiz. I am delighted that you noticed and commented on so many of the art and details we've put into the house. I agree that the property is wonderfully private and romantic for 2 guests, and equally perfect for families or a group of friends. Hope to have your kids visit next time!

A beautiful Home in a Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Villa Capiz for 8 days during May 2014. Villa Capiz was perfect from the start when we were greeted by Peter and Gail, the Property Managers, taken to our rental car and then shown around this beautiful home. The Villa is located perfectly for those that don't want to be too far from the action of Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches but want privacy. The drive to the "other side" of the island is about a half hour. Well worth the drive to hike Ram's Head. The home is well cared for, every detail attended to. We traveled with our 20 something children who enjoyed the place as much as we did. The home is well equipped with anything you would need and VERY comfortable. The pool is the best after a nice day on the beach or a hike. Cocktails on the deck watching the sunset with the magnificent view can not be beat. Thank-you Debbie for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Amazing Home With a Priceless View

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to drop you a quick review to say what a great time we had at Villa Capiz. My Dad and Mom loved the top deck. They sat there watching the view, boats, birds and iguanas in the trees every day. The weather was good. Everything was easy to get to and enjoy. We totally enjoyed our stay.

Thanks for letting us share the property

Notes:
Having spent many months at a time at Villa Capiz while our children attended school on St. John in the winter, we added personal touches to the home not normally found in a rental property. Artwork, landscaping, and attention to detail make this villa welcoming. It is very private and yet is close to town and beaches. Also available are ipod docking stations.
