Overview

Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Privacy and comfort describes this beautifully appointed, ocean view villa while enjoying the convenience of being close to Cruz Bay’s fine restaurants, bars and grocery stores (1 ½ miles to Cruz Bay).

Riley’s Retreat has a total of five bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, four bathrooms, in two separate apartments. You can be assured of privacy since the entire villa is only rented to one group. If you require three or less bedrooms, the main level will be reserved for you. If additional space is needed, then guests can also use the lower level apartment.

The main level has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, granite counter tops and travertine floors. Riley’s Retreat has magnificent stone and Venetian plaster walls. The Great Room has a 52” plasma TV, Bose entertainment system and a pool table.

Enjoy cocktails and dine on the beautiful balcony with views of Pillsbury Sound and St Thomas. On clear days you can see St Croix and Puerto Rico. From this balcony there is a gorgeous sunset (roughly from mid-October to mid-March).

The lower level consists of two bedrooms, one bathroom, living room and complete kitchen, also with granite counters and travertine floors. The balcony is equivalent to the main level balcony with the same spectacular view.

All bedrooms are air conditioned.

The pool area is very private and also has a hot tub. There is a bar area to enjoy snacks and a bathroom.

Relax and enjoy!

Terrific House

  • 5 of 5

This spacious villa was just perfect for our extended family. Our daughter, son-in law and 2 1/2 year old granddaughter occupied the downstairs living area and the rest of us were lodged in the three bedrooms on the upper level. We particularly liked the pool being fenced in and situated on a level below the downstairs living area...perfect for young children. The kitchen has a huge island and high end appliances. The verandas off of each living area offered a lovely view and were well used by all for reading, eating and relaxing. The laundry room has a washer and dryer for each living unit. Our hosts, Heidi and Tim, were most accommodating.

A fine week at Riley's Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed a wonderful week on St. John staying at Riley's Retreat. The villa is very nice, very well laid out, and provided plenty of room for Mom/Dad and four adult kids to be together when we wanted and have our own space when needed. The kitchen is great, very well equipped, and the open plan and big island made preparing meals a lot of fun. The verandas have beautiful views and were a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, eat meals together, and enjoy a glass of wine and play games at the end of the day. The pool/hot tub deck had sun all day, a beautiful pool, and was very comfy in the evening. Riley's is a great place to base from when visiting St. John.

Heidi, Tim, and Austin were very attentive and responsive when we had questions or needed a hand with something. Unlike other St. John villas at which we've stayed, having the owners nearby is really great compared to dealing with a villa rental or management company. Very positive experience!!

Riley's only weakness is also one of its best attributes - LOCATION! Just a little ways off Centerline Road and only a mile out of town made getting into town for dinner, shopping, etc. quite convenient, and access to the south shore beaches was easy compared to some other places we've stayed. But being just a little ways off of Centerline Road also entailed a bit of traffic noise, which we got used to quickly.

Our family highly recommends Riley's Retreat, and would definitely stay there again next time we visit the island!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rileys Retreat was perfect for our family Christmas Vacation. The retreat was large enough for 7 adults to have plenty of space for privacy and perfect for family time. It was nice to have a big kitchen to prepare breakfast before venturing out to the many beaches. The villa offers beach chairs and snorkel gear for your use. After a day of touring the island, it was so nice to come back to a pool and hot tub! Close to town for dinner and shopping. The wild chickens, snacked on the starfruit tree adding to the remote feel of the island! The view is awesome! Heidi is so helpful and great to work with. Had the pleasure of meeting her husband Tim as well. Austin, the caretaker is on the property for any questions or needs. Would love to plan our next adventure on St John and at Rileys Retreat!

Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

We came for a wedding and filled the house up!! The views were incredible and the kitchen was wonderful. All the amenities anyone needs including snorkel gear, wetsuits, beach chairs and beach towels. The only negative was if you were staying at the house during the day. All the noise from Highway 10 and all the heavy equipment and yard equipment carries uphill and is very noisy. In the early morning there are many roosters in the neighborhood if you are a light sleeper - take earplugs. We were at the beach most days - so we didn't notice it as much - but the folks that decided to spend the day at the house - it was not as relaxing as they had hoped. Owners were great to work with.

Amazing Villa !!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning Heidi was so helpful, responsive and accommodating with me trying to plan my 40th birthday vacation. There were 10 of us and the house was perfect, two couples downstairs and the rest of us upstairs made the perfect arrangement. There was plenty of room and privacy for when you needed quiet time and the common areas were perfect for entertaining. Both balconies span the entire length of the house and offer breathtaking views of the water and the island. I took an private outdoor shower every day it was so awesome!

Austin the caretaker was on property and checked in and made sure we had everything we needed. They really have thought of everything there, snorkel gear, beach towels, fully stocked kitchen, even with spices and coffee filters:)

I will totally be back, hopefully annually if I can round up the crew:)

Thanks Heidi, it was the perfect place to stay and the best birthday trip ever!
