About Sheila Reiner

John is a landscape architect and Sheila is a retired school teacher. We love travel (especially to our home in St. John), theater, and fine dining. We have four adult children who spent much of their growing up years vacationing on St. John. As a family, we often spend our Christmas vacations in our St. John home, sharing old memories and making new ones.

Why Sheila Reiner chose Fish Bay

John and I chose to build our vacation home on St. John because we love the natural beauty and quiet of the island, and because it is one of the U.S. territories. We wanted to build our home where we could enjoy perfect weather all year round. Because the Virgin Islands National Park covers two thirds of the island, we are assured it will keep its pristine, natural environment.

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a quiet area called Estate Fish Bay. It overlooks the calm, blue waters of Fish Bay and the Caribbean Ocean. On a clear day we can see St. Croix in the distance. Our house rises above the tree tops with a spectacular, panoramic view of the Caribbean and surrounding mountains. One of our favorite pastimes while in our paradise home is feeding sugar water to and watching the small yellow birds, Banana Quits, as they dart back and forth from our deck to the trees below. John and I also love spending time lying in one of the two hammocks in our screened in porches reading a good book and watching the shadows on the mountains and ocean as the sun makes its way across the Caribbean blue sky. We are ten minutes away from the quaint village of Cruz Bay, and just minutes away from all of the white sand beaches of the island.

Quiet base to explore St. John from

  • 5 of 5
My husband, sister, brother-in-law & myself had a wonderful time on St. John. We liked the quiet atmosphere in Fish Bay. The view from the deck is beautiful. I always woke up early and watched the world turn light from the hammock. The house has the feel of an old family retreat. It's not fancy, but very comfortable with all the conveniences you'd want. We made good use of the washer & dryer, beach towells, cooler and beach chairs. We cooked steaks on the grill one night and ate out on the deck. It was lovely. The driveway scared us, it's not easy to back up out of, especially in the dark, but my husband did great. We saw much scarier ones and decided we were lucky! We were gone all day every day seeing St. John, and appreciated coming "home" and relaxing. If you need a fancy resort you should look somewhere else, but if you want a nice homey base this is the perfect place to stay. The layout is very good for 2 couples.

Best time of my life!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time at Sheila's villa! The house is spacious and well maintained. It is simple and very personable.

We stayed there with a large group, but we never felt as if we were in each other's way. Outside deck overlooking the ocean is perfect for hanging out with friends. Kitchen was big enough to cook for all of us.

Thanks again! We will definitely come back!

A Taste of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a glorious 10 days two Summer's ago (lif'e's been busy!) here in this lovely, quaint, relaxing, comfortable, and inviting "home" in Fish Bay on St. John Isl. You will literally wake up each morning to the heavenly sights and sounds of the beautiful ocean right outside your bedside, only to continue this existence of Paradise, throughout your day, enjoying all the amenities and comforts of "home", while at the same time, basking in the reality of island living - "planning to spend the day at one of the many Island beaches, or trails for hiking" - just a short drive away! Much to do, shop, eat, and enjoy no matter what your decision: In or Out! Not to disappoint!! What are you waiting for?? Live Life!

Owner's Response: Kathy, Thank you for your very gracious review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home and your time spent on St. John. I couldn't have described life on St. John any better. Hope you get a chance to visit again and soak up life "St. John" style. Sheila
