CLOUD NINE: SPECTACULAR SUNSET VIEWS, EXCELLENT PRIVACY, POOL AND SPA

Gift Hill Villa Rental Photos and Description

Breathtaking view of islands and ocean around from the top of Gifft Hill.

Cloud Nine is located on a hilltop 640 feet above the Caribbean Sea where you can see mountain peaks 80 miles away. With spectacular views, gentle trade winds, and the twinkling lights of distant islands Cloud Nine combines the comforts of traditional Caribbean architecture with casual elegance and creates a private, romantic and restful environment. There are beds for up to nine people at this vacation villa. At night after a beautiful sunset, the soft lighting, gentle trade winds and twinkling lights of distant islands create a seductive and tranquil ambiance. A covered walkway connects the living room/kitchen with the bedroom wing.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair accessible
  • non smoking only

We are Allen and Linda. We and our two teen daughters are residents of St. John and have lived on St. John since 1990. We chose St. John as our ideal home after exploring the Caribbean and Bahamas by sailboat. We manage Cloud Nine and Pebble Cove on East End ourselves and it is very important to us that our guests are pleased with the property. We find the views from this lovely home to defy description and every time we walk in the front door we are still charmed by the view.

Linda Sorensen or Allen Glenn purchased this villa in 1996

We wanted to offer this pleasure to our guests as well. We also love the relative coolness of this particular Gifft Hill location. The sun keeps the pool warm, but gentle breezes keep the house very comfortable year round. The courtyard opens to the view and offers plenty of privacy, a feature most guests highly value. Yes, you can swim, sunbathe or soak in the spa with no bathing suit.

A short drive to the beaches, close to town yet uniquely private. This is the perfect location from which to explore St. John. We love sitting on the deck under the stars or under the shade of the gazebo and watching the play of light and wind on the waters below. The sunsets and lights of St. Thomas are magical!

True Jewel on St. John

  • Submitted: Mar 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Cloud 9 was more and everything we expected and was a true jewel in STJ!
We loved the view and it has to be one of the best on the island-we spent our evenings watching the sunset, the lights off STT twinkle while in the pool.
I can't say enough about Allen and Linda ( owners ) as they were so gracious to let us stay one extra night in the villa due to the port being closed courtesy of Issac.
Thank you for the best vacation and for the memories

Cloud Nine is heaven on earth!

  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
We have been coming to St. John for many years and have stayed in many villas. Now, for the last 5 years Cloud Nine Villa is our favorite place to stay. We have given up trying any others as we are so comfortable here. We love the view; it takes our breath away every time we return "home", walk in the courtyard door and look out over the islands and water. We love the privacy, especially the way the house is designed around a courtyard with a pool in the center. We indulge in taking a nude dip anytime we want, then lie in the sun on the lounge chairs until we are ready to dip again. We love the hot tub, a wonderful place to enjoy a tall one while we observe the sunset or the stars. The master bedroom is great; we can open the doors to the outdoors and truly feel we are in the islands. The gazebo is great for reading or dining, a welcome shady retreat when we've had enough sun. We feel like we are home at Cloud Nine. Thank you Allen and Linda for sharing your special place! We will be back next year!
