Overview

Rendezvous Bay House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 4

Location, Location, Location!

Pearl Guest House is a beautiful new waterfront home on Rendezvous Bay, within the exclusive Boatman Point neighborhood. Its just a 5 - 10 minute drive from downtown Cruz Bay where you'll find groceries, restaurants, and shopping; and a 15-minute drive to the VI National Park beaches. At Pearl Guest House, you'll discover another world where you can unwind and relax with the sea.

Pearl Guest House is on the waterfront. The views and sounds of the bay are amazing - like being on a boat. On a calm day one can see the coral reefs and fish below. The bay is very private and pristine, offering excellent snorkeling and kayaking. There is a path on the property to access the beach below or we have access to a private staircase to the beach which is only two houses away. The house is in a private neighborhood and is on a dead-end street. The Pearl Guest House faces to the east which has several advantages: glorious sunrises, shade in the afternoon, and best of all, constant breezes.

Pearl Guest House is a gorgeous two-story home with main living space (kitchen, dining, living) on the upper level, and bedrooms with private attached bathrooms and laundry room on the lower level.

The interior is tastefully decorated and has cool travertine floors throughout. Every room has large, screened sliding glass doors to enjoy the views and breezes. If you prefer, A/C is available throughout the home.

The kitchen is well-appointed with everything a cook might need including a microwave, dishwasher and outdoor BBQ grill. There are granite countertops and cherry cabinets including an island with stool seating. The upper level also has an indoor dining table with seating for four as well as the main living/seating area with an entertainment center. Amenities include cable TV with DVD player, stereo with CD player, high speed internet service with WiFi. There is a collection of movies for your use while here. The upper level also has an outside covered deck with seating - the perfect spot to watch the sunlight or moonlight dance on the water below.

The lower level (accessed by an exterior stairway) contains two bedrooms with adjoining private bathrooms, and a laundry room. Both bedrooms have one king-size bed and A/C. There are large sliding glass doors in each bedroom offering wonderful views of the bay and beyond. Lay in bed and be lulled asleep by the sound of the surf and tropical breezes.

The spacious lower deck is the perfect location for al fresco dining. The deck is very private and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. Look down to see bananas, coconut palms, key lime trees, frangipani, and more!

Pearl guests are welcome to use a 2-seat kayak which is on the beach below. You can paddle across the bay and relax at the white sand Ditleiff Beach. We also have coolers, beach chairs and some snorkel gear for your use while here. All linens and beach towels are provided. Pack light and relax!

The Pearl Guest House is the ideal choice for the perfect Caribbean escape!

About Karen Ovcina

We left the suburbs of Chicago after falling in love with St. John on a sailing trip. After being here 8 years, we still love it! Pearl Guest House is a two-bedroom home adjacent to the Blue Pearl Villa, our dream project which we designed and built. Pearl Guest House was completed first and we have lived there with our young son since 2009. We have moved into the Villa and are now renting the Guest House. We value our privacy and will respect yours, but of course if you need any assistance, we are nearby to help in any way. We certainly hope you find the place as magical as we do!

Karen Ovcina purchased this house in 2008

The Pearl Guest House is a GEM!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first visit to St. John. We loved the island, and were thrilled with our choice to stay at the Pearl guest house. What a beautiful house, set in an amazing location. Rendezvous Bay was so private we felt like we had the whole bay to ourselves. We enjoyed using the kayak to paddle over to the private beach across the bay. The snorkeling was so peaceful, we saw lots of fish, coral, and some turtles. Karen and Ibro were the perfect hosts. We felt very welcome, and taken care of. The house had everything we could want for our vacation. My personal favorite was the amazing shower with a view of the bay, but still totally private! The location of the house was a quick drive in to "town" for groceries, restaurants, or shopping. We would definitely recommend staying at The Pearl Guest House. We hope to return ourselves sometime soon.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the property display exactly what you get. Everything was perfect, from the welcome food and beverages all the way down to the cozy bedrooms.

My favorite part of this rental was the fact that the water is close enough to hear, and the sound of the surf hitting the beach is enough to lull you into a perfect sense of tranquility. A few nights we decided to sleep with the sliding glass door wide open, and the screen door closed. The sounds were hypnotic. It was some of the best sleeping conditions I've had in years. While we were there, we were blessed by the moon coming up over the bay at night and glistening on the water with a million flashed of silver moonlight. In the morning, we were equally blessed by the sun peeking up over the horizon and illuminating our room with the early rays.

Every amenity and necessity were provided. Even though the hosts were right next door, we never heard from them until we were about to leave.

I also loved the fact that the house came with the use of a kayak and a paddle board. The waves were too rough to use the paddle-board, but I enjoyed a couple of twilight excursions in the kayak, and even did some night time snorkeling on the far side of the bay.

I would definitely stay here again...very soon I hope.

Awesome Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome Villa!

This place is even better than advertised! Where to begin… we were greeted by Ibro at our jeep rental location and he guided us back to the villa which is only 5+ minutes from downtown Cruz bay. Once we arrived at the villa Karen and Ibro gave us a quick tour. They were extremely nice and made sure we were situated and had all of our questions answered before leaving. In my opinion the pictures on the website don’t do the villa justice. The upstairs living area is open and airy and the views from decks are incredible. The bedrooms are on the lower level and feel brand new. Very clean and tidy…we never saw a bug in the house. There was always a nice breeze coming off of the ocean which kept the temperature in the villa very comfortable. We never had to use the upstairs air conditioner and only had to run the downstairs once for about an hour.

Although the main house is right next door you can’t see it from either of the decks so you truly have your privacy. In addition, there is no house to the right of the guest house providing additional privacy, but it is nice to know that Karen and Ibro are right next store if anything goes wrong or if you have any questions.

Rendezvous bay is so tranquil and has nearly zero traffic. A busy day on the water was when we saw one lone paddle boarder make his way across the bay. After traveling across the island all week my wife and I commented that our favorite view was the one from the Pearl Guest House. You are only about 30 – 40 feet off the water with access to the bay by a walking trail from the villa. There are also stairs down to the water about a 100 yards from the house if you would rather. The view of the night sky was so clear we would spend the end of each evening stargazing before calling it a day.

After a week at the Pearl Guest House we feel spoiled and know that it will be hard to find a villa this nice and with this view elsewhere. We look forward to heading back to the Pearl Guest house in the near future!

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

We were the first people to be lucky enough to rent this beautiful home. Karen and Ibro were very helpful and friendly. They even surprised us with a nice basket of goodies on arrival.

The house is absolutely beautiful. We loved the décor and all the nice little touches. Everything in the house is pleasing to the eye. The kitchen is just as it appears in the pictures. It is well stocked (they even had nice clean spices, sugar, flour and oil available for our use). There was nothing we needed that was not available. The water is filtered and the fridge was great for water and ice.

The beds were true kings and very comfortable, especially the one with memory foam. The AC throughout the house was powerful but the house was fairly cool just with the fans and the doors open. The screens on the doors and windows kept the bugs out. We did not get any bites while at this house.

The TV and WiFi worked well. We lost Wifi for one day but as soon as I let Ibro know, he had it back up and running. Our cell service with Verizon was very poor at the house (no fault of the owners, just an FYI).

Bathrooms are very nice and they thought of everything we might need (hair dryer, shampoo, razors, toothpaste, insect repellant, lotion, etc).

The views from both decks were amazing. The location is absolutely perfect because the house is in a very quiet area on a beautiful bay with no traffic except the occasional boat mooring (we think Johnny Depp's boat was out there one day). You are literally 2 miles from Cruz Bay with the best grocery stores and lots of restaurants, but you would never know it looking out the window.

The water in the bay was beautiful. The entry is a little bit difficult when there is some surf (most days we had some surf, but it was December). The snorkeling in the bay was great if you could get past the entry. They had a nice kayak and paddle board for use in the bay as well. These were really nice to have because it was easier to get out onto the water using the kayak.

I was worried about privacy from the main house prior to booking. This was not a problem at all. In fact we sort of wished we had seen Karen and Ibro more because they were so nice and helpful. The driveway and parking were perfect. There is a nice pad for parking which allows you to turn around easily. It is not steep like many of the driveways on the island.

I would not hesitate to rent this house again.
