SEA TURTLE VILLA - BEST RENTAL VALUE ON ST. JOHN!!

Fish Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Sea Turtle Villa is one of St. John's most popular vacation homes. The casual elegance of Sea Turtle Villa makes it an ideal accommodation for discriminating travelers. The alfresco architectural design with 10 foot by 10 foot openings allows guests to enjoy the comforting breezes and spectacular views (views of Fish, Rendezvous & Hart Bays and the V.I. National Park) whether from inside the villa or while lounging in the pool.

Honeymoon And 'Special Anniversary' couples especially love the privacy, couples traveling together love the accommodations ('not even a toss up for master bedrooms'), and our larger groups (up to six guests) love the comforts and conveniences of spending time together.

Guests love to see all the 'Sea Turtles' that have been used as decorative appointments in the house...there is even an on-going challenge in the guest book of the latest 'count' of sea turtles.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only

About Rich and Cherry Glass

Cherry and I live in southwestern Ohio where we own and operate a bed and breakfast. Our life when not serving guests consists of spending as much time as possible with our kids and grandkids and dreaming of our next visit to St. John.

Rich and Cherry Glass purchased this villa in 2001

Why Rich and Cherry Glass chose Fish Bay

We have been traveling to St. John for 30 years and Sea Turtle Villa is the culmination of our desire to own a villa on St. John. After staying in numerous rental villas, we have had the opportunity to pick and choose the best features of each in our own villa.

A Great Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this villa for our summer vacation and had an amazing time. The villa had everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting out on the back porch overlooking Fish Bay and swimming in the private pool!! We rented a jeep and explored different beaches everyday. We had dinner at Café Roma and Morgans Mango both were very good but most of all we loved grilling at the villa. Such a relaxing vacation. We would definitely rent this villa again!

Amazing View!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Rich and Cherry for sharing your beautiful home with us!!! This is our second time visiting St. John and have fallen in love with this beautiful island! If you want a hiking challenge hit the reef bay trail!!! Vies shack in coral bay is a wonderful secret place to eat and enjoy the beach! The weather was a bit on the rainy side daily but we still enjoyed the beach. Only draw back was they were working on a house I believe below us so the hammering started at about 630 am daily :( fortunately we do not usually sleep in too late. I thought about doing the turtle counting attempt but there is just way too many I would notice a new one all the time lol!
Thank you again !!!!

Owner's Response: We are once again very appreciative of another '5 star' rating Sea Turtle. The construction mentioned is well down the hill from our property and not in our sub division. The 'noise' from this construction is limited as the house under construction is nearing completion and future work will be concentrated on the interior.

My husband, 3 kids (ages 9-14), & I had a fabulous spring break at Sea Turtle. This was our first trip to St John and we are so happy we chose this villa. The description and photos are very accurate except you can't really appreciate the stunning views until you experience them in person! The villa was clean and well cared for. The owners & property manager were very helpful & easy to work with. We were met at the ferry and driven to rent our car. After a stop to grab groceries, we followed the manager to the house where she showed us around and answered our questions. Even though there are just 2 bedrooms, the open loft areas with futons outside each room allowed all 3 kids to have their own space. It was a perfect family set up- no bedrooms were detached as so many are on St. John. My husband had been a little hesitant about the property because it is a little drive from town, but we found driving on St. John to be a big part of the fun and didn't mind the extra few minutes in the car seeing more of the island & views than we would have staying in town area. (It actually was not as long of a drive as we expected.) As hard as it was to drag ourselves off the beach everyday, we loved getting back to the house to enjoy the peaceful views at sunset. We loved Trunk & Cinnamon Bays- snorkeling was great as well as relaxing in beach chairs (available at the house) soaking in the beautiful view- the water was even more breathtaking than we had imagined. We did a horseback ride in Coral Bay- so fun and saw more amazing views. We didn't eat out much - everyone wanted to get back and enjoy the house at night. Just before we caught the ferry we did enjoy a meal just across the street at Cruz Landing. Food was yummy and they were super accommodating with our luggage and helping us finish in time to make the ferry on time! We were sad to leave St John and Sea Turtle, but we will absolutely be back! Thank you Cherry & Rich for sharing your lovely home with us!

Beautiful views, great villa! Would give 10 stars if possible.

  • 5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Sea Turtle. The views are incredible, and the open/screened in living area provides an excellent breeze. Being that close to the water that you can hear it just adds to the overall experience. On clear nights, the stars were unbelievably bright. Living in the country in Ohio, I thought our starry nights were unbeatable, until last week. You can even see the lights of St. Croix on some nights. The large deck area that wraps around the side to the back is perfect/accommodating for those that want sun, as well as those that prefer shade. The villa is very private, and the Fish Bay area (especially during the evening) is extremely quiet and serene. The pool is perfect for keeping cool and just floating around. We had a couple of rainy mornings, and each one came with a beautiful rainbow. My wife and I enjoy morning walks/hikes and walking the hills of Fish Bay Estates was a great workout (with great views included). We were excited to find from the owners (Rich & Cherry are awesome!) that right down the hill maybe 100 yards is the trail entry to a very well maintained path that if followed, will lead to ruins and a Baobab tree, as well as the Esperance trail that goes to Little Reef Bay beach. The villa pictures and listing are very accurate, and the property is very clean and well maintained. Rich & Cherry are always available to answer any questions you may have and communicate extremely well on all facets of the check-in process. I would highly recommend this property. For the first time on our numerous ventures to the island, we were at one of the beautiful beaches and actually were wishing we had just stayed back at the villa enjoying the pool/decks/views/privacy. That's how much we think of Sea Turtle. We have stayed at a few luxury villas on the island in other areas such as Virgin Grand Estates and Coral Bay, as well as beachfront at Caneel Bay, and I can honestly say that Sea Turtle has moved to the top of our list! Thanks Rich & Cherry, we hope to return soon.

Truly Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
For our first visit to the Carribean, this villa was exactly as pictured on various internet sites and better. Everything one could need or plan for on a beach vacation was at this villa from sundries to beach chairs to snorkel equipment. For once, on one of our many beach vacations we actually spent an afternoon cooking and lounging around the pool at the villa. I couldn't wait to just go back from the beautiful beaches and hang out. Cooking was a breeze with so many kitchen gadgets and utensils. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in that I wish I knew the mattress brand! My son and I counted the number of various turtle decorations as it was so appropriately decorated. Very private and relaxing. The owners and management company were awesome to deal with!!

Beautiful villa. Great views and quiet setting

  • 5 of 5
This was our 7th visit to St. John. In the past my wife and I stayed either in the Chocolate Hole or Coral Bay areas of the island, but thought we would give Fish Bay a try. So glad we did. The Sea Turtle is a beautiful villa nicely appointed and comfortable with great views and quiet. The villa had all the comforts of home on a beautiful and exotic island. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. The lovely pool and deck were heavily used each day after snorkeling or hiking. The landscaping was particularly lovely with a lot of attention to detail and the setting. Given all this the Sea Turtle is a great value. A most wonderful stay for us. To quote Kenney Chesney, "When things get tough, I go down there."
