Nestled amongst lush tropical foliage and the glorious ocean hillsides of St. John, your island paradise awaits. Upon entering the Villa, you will be captivated by the spacious great room with its high ceiling and spectacular panoramic view of the Caribbean. Just beyond expansive sliding glass doors, visitors may bask on the large upper-level balcony patio, or relax in the pool.
Villa Rendezvous is an extraordinary waterfront home with air conditioning throughout and direct access to snorkeling from the property. The great room opens onto a large pool deck and oversized pool via a series of sliding glass doors. These doors can be completely recessed, so you can seamlessly enjoy both indoor and outdoor living space. This is the ultimate in Caribbean style living.
With stylish decor throughout, a gorgeous upscale kitchen, cable TV in every bedroom suite, and interior access to all four bedrooms (two bedrooms per level), there are few other villas that can compare for the value. Each master bedroom is tastefully and luxuriously appointed in themed decor and has its own fully enclosed bath. Rooms are accessible from within the Villa or by using the outdoor illuminated walkways, and a new modern kitchen is perfect for entertaining at the villa.
The lush flat lawn, high-speed wireless Internet access, and a stairs to the water's edge are a few of the many added surprises you can expect at Villa Rendezvous. Children welcome!!

We, (Kurt, Suzanne, 13-year old Kory, and 7-year old Alek) hail from the suburbs of Philadelphia. We own D4 Creative, an advertising agency (that Suzanne founded in 1990), and try to spend at least one month a year in our paradise villa. Suzanne spent many months completely renovating the villa, and you'll relish living in a home that combines elegance with comfort. Kurt, by the way, was a record producer in a previous life, and is now the chief creative officer and president of the agency. Kory is already writing his own songs, loves to snowboard and surf. Alek is a charming, funny, and rough and tumble kid, loves to play anything. We invite everyone to share this incredible place with us. St. John is simply magical!
Kurt Shore purchased this villa in 2000
As we already said, St. John is really paradise. You quickly realize that you can truly unplug from the world, and relax and enjoy the simple things in life, pay more attention to your kids, family, loved ones...
St. John is a small island, (28 miles in perimeter), with a beauty all of it's own. Our property is ideally located to enjoy the whole island easily. Or you can simply stay at the villa. Beautiful vistas of the Caribbean Ocean are seen from every room in the house. We have one of the largest swimming pools on the island, and there is beach access about 100 yards from our home for all the villas to enjoy. (Be careful, wear swim shoes to avoid the sea urchins- big ouch.)
I can't believe it has taken me so long to write this review given the wonderful time we had on St. John. We were two families traveling together - 4 adults, 5 children (ages 5-13). The house was huge - we could have slept another family easily. All of the bedrooms connected with internal staircases, which was very important to us with small children, and a feature that was actually hard to find on St. John. The views from the house are breathtaking. We spent each morning in the pool, then explored a different beach each day, then returned for another swim in the pool and dinner on the deck. The beach chairs, toys, towels, bags were all in great condition. We had a few incidents with things in the house breaking - the ice maker, one bedroom A/C unit, and the shelving in one bedroom. In each case, the property management company was at the house in less than 30 minutes to fix the problem. They were really friendly and very responsive. We highly recommend this house!
We had 13 people in this house, 9 adults and 4 children. There was never a time where we felt we are on top of each other. There was so much space and privacy. The kids were in the pool pretty much anytime we were on the property. The kitchen was full of amenities -- ice maker was great! We did have a water leak the first day we were there. It was fixed and completely taken care of by the time we got home from dinner. Very responsive management company. I'm not sure you can beat the view. It was a fantastic place to spend Thanksgiving and probably the best view we have had for our Thanksgiving meal. Very much recommend this place especially for large groups and kids.
This villa was perfect for our large extended family. There were grandparents, young adults and young children (ages 7 and 8). The safari room was perfect for a family with young kids as there are 2 KING beds in one room (one of the king beds in a separate alcove situated perfectly so the kids could not fall out of bed). The other bedrooms allowed for different sleeping arrangments, one room had a queen bed plus a pull out queen sofa, the other has a King bed plus pull out single bed. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, spices, etc.
The pool area is HUGE, and safe for kids. We used the grill daily.
VIlla hit all of our must haves: FULL AC, cable and TV's in all rooms, KID friendly, Safe POOL deck area, close to Cruz Bay. Multiple and separate sleeping arrangements.
The only CON was theat there was no music outside on the deck. There is WIFI so we used our IPHONES, but I recommend bring a small portable speaker to hook up your IPHONE to.
Kurt and Viva Vacations were great to deal with- very repsonsive and accomodating.
Everything was as advertised. Online pictures do not do it justice - the views from the great room and pool deck made me not want to leave. The owner, Kurt, and the property management company went above and beyond to make us feel at home. As a homeaway.com owner myself, I would highly recommend this property.
This was our fifth trip to St. John and our fifth different villa.Villa Rendezvous is, by far, our favorite villa we have ever rented! We traveled with both children and seniors, and the house was perfect for everyone. The villa is exactly as pictured on the website. The spacious kitchen/living/dining area opens to the great pool and the gorgeous view of Klein Bay. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, each with their own bathroom. The villa had everything you could possibly need from kitchen supplies to dining china to beach chairs and towels. It was easy to see that the owners have given significant thought and attention to all of the little details that make a rental feel like a home. If you are looking for a St. John villa that can easily accommodate a large or small group, young or old in a breath-taking location, Villa Rendezvous is the perfect home away from home!
We traveled from California and New York to stay at Villa Rendezvous for a week. The home was amazing beyond expectations! The view from the pool deck is incredible! In fact, every room in the house has a great view. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and gadgets. The pool is huge and perfect for swimming and just relaxing. Many of the days we didn't even leave the house - just spent the day in the pool and on the pool deck. The management company is very helpful and reliable. The location of the home is great - not far from Cruz Bay and restaurant and shops but far enough for peace and quiet. We would LOVE to go back!
Rendezvous Bay, USVI - St. John, Caribbean (3 Miles from Cruz Bay, 1.5 Mile from Westin) -- St. John is a paradise.

The Westin Resort is only 1.5 miles away- has boating, sailing, water activities of all kinds, and tennis. Hiking trails are plentiful. Cruz Bay, while small and intimate has dozens of great restaurants and one-of-a-kind stores.
