We first traveled to St John in 1994, with two very young children in tow, desperate to escape the London winter blues and destined for a reunion with some Boston friends. Earlier in our marriage we'd travelled to a number of Caribbean islands, but the beauty of St John was just awe inspiring. On that very first visit we purchased land, beginning a long and wonderful association with the Island of St John.

Whilst we contemplated the design of the house, we continued to visit renting a number of the charming houses in the Rendezvous Bay area, and finally built our own home in 1999.

As our family grew and aged, the one constant in all our lives was Leeward. In their early years, the children spent time in the shallows of Maho Bay, playing and learning to snorkel, but also accompanied us on hikes and more adventurous dives and outings as their confidence grew. Now we do all that, but can also throw in an hour at the Beach Bar or leave them at Woodies, the cool hangout for all self respecting youngsters.

Leeward has provided countless memories as the family has grown up. The London winters are still dreary, and we escape frequently to St John. The lure of the island is strong, and even after 18 years there is a rush of anticipation as we prepare for another visit. And the children , even with the two older ones now graduated from college, are still as keen as ever to get on that air plane and head to St John and Leeward.

It is a gorgeous island, and a beautiful house from which to enjoy it. Our family has done so, and judging by the number of repeat guests at Leeward, some stretching back over 10 years, many others have done so to.

We prefer to call guests 'Friends of Leeward' as opposed to 'Visitors'. We do hope you'll find time to visit St John, and if your travel plans incorporate another villa, that is fine too. Enjoy the natural beauty of St John. We know you'll be back.

The South shore of St John is a popular destination for visitors. Rendezvous Bay is the most beautiful of the residential areas on the south shore, and Klein Bay is a charming and picturesque community within Rendezvous.

We were fortunate to buy this plot long before the real estate boom. It is a choice lot, high enough to benefit from the gentle trade breeze, but low enough to feel as if you can step off the deck in to the ocean. The house faces due south making the pool and deck a favoured place. Enjoying an early morning coffee on the deck overlooking Ditleff Point, lounging on the pool side furniture soaking up the sun shine, laying on a pool float listening to music from the outdoor speakers, or having a late afternoon cocktail are all options you'll want to consider. And the night sky is a a joy to behold.

The house itself benefits from high quality finishings. Yet it is not pretentious. Maintenance and cleanliness are high on the agenda, so you can relax in comfort. A/C in the secure bedroom wing, and copious ceiling fans throughout the property keep it cool. There are stunning views from almost every aspect.

We're a pretty active family, and after a day out on the latest adventure, nothing beats coming back to Leeward, firing up the BBQ, and sipping a cold beer or a rum cocktail whilst looking out over the ocean.

No Caribbean property is complete without a garden and we take pride in the gardens at Leeward. It can be challenging at times, but there is a good array of mature palms and shrubs, fruit trees including mango, banana, coconut, star fruit and lime. I like to rise early and wander about the garden watching the humming birds feed and marvel at the colours of the foliage and tropical flowers.

Leeward is a well maintained upmarket, family house with beautiful furnishings. Its views are unsurpassed, with many guests enjoying fabulous memories of the house. I feel confident you will to.

Paradise - a very special place!

We arrived for our one week family stay at the enchanting Leeward Villa and instantly fell in love with the place. Set upon the private mountainside overlooking Klein Bay and Dittlif Point, the views are breathtaking. The villa is just a short ride to Cruz Bay and close enough to all of the beaches by car. We enjoyed walking to Klein Bay, set right below the villa. A bit of a walk, but worth it to snorkel amongst the many fish and starfish.

It was simply amazing to wake up every morning to the beautiful view from the bedroom balcony. We enjoyed many relaxing mornings just sitting outside taking in all of the views with our morning coffee. We often spent our evenings and dinner poolside. Turning off all of the villa lights, we were in awe by the glitter of the many stars above us. We knew we were in paradise - a very special place!

The villa's accomadations were perfect for our stay. Each of the 4 bedrooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. The professionally equipped kitchen was perfect for preparing meals during our stay. We enjoyed barbecuing and eating every evening poolside at the huge outdoor dinning table. Evenings we would relax in the beautifully furnished living room.

The management team at CareFree Getaways were most professional. From the moment we stepped off the ferry they made sure our stay would be most relaxing and successful.

We highly recommend staying at the Leeward Villa. Don't think twice - while on St. John - this is truly the place to be!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a delightful review. We are so pleased that you had a great vacation. This is our first year on VRBO and we understand that it can be a leap of faith when booking a house unseen, so it is gratifying when expectations are met, or even surpassed. Leeward has an enviable location, and we place a big emphasis on the house being maintained to a level that makes us all comfortable. St John has a way of seducing visitors, so whenever the calling next comes, do get in contact. Thank you again for spending the time to post a review.

Spectacular Setting

The house was ideal for our group of three couples. We cooked great meals in the well-equipped kitchen and on the grill, then enjoyed eating them at the outside and inside tables. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and we all slept exceptionally well.

Leeward is well-located, very well-maintained, and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We found it easy to work with the property managers, who were helpful, available, and responsive. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and most were excellent, but we would rank Leeward as the best and recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such positive feedback. More importantly, we are delighted you were all able to relax and enjoy St John whilst staying at Leeward. Having a responsive on island representative is important for us all, so it's good to know that facet is also working well.

Great Villa Overlooking the water

  • Submitted: Jul 1, 2013

The villa was excellent. Everyone had a wonderful time and there was plenty of space so if you did not want to be around someone, there was somewhere to go! The pots, pans, dishes, knives were of good quality so cooking was a pleasure. The only issue we had was trying to figure out how to use the convection oven and the CD player did not seem to work properly. We would definitely look to return here. The views were great and a short trip to town. The last evening we did not cook at home but had a wonderful meal at the Ocean Grill in Cruz Bay. Would also highly recommend Cloud 9 Sailing Charters.

Owner's Response: We do appreciate people taking time to post a review, so thank you. Leeward views are stunning, and we are pleased you all enjoyed your stay.
There should be laminated instructions for all appliances, but occasionally things go missing or an appliance just stops working. We have an excellent on island management company who are great to work with, so if anything is not working satisfactorily, or you're struggling to operate something, just give them a call. They'll have the answer right away, or they'll send the requisite maintenance man very promptly.

Stunning views and Wonderful Accommodations

My husband and I traveled with our two children (5 and 2), babysitter and another couple. Upon arrival the views were stunning! It felt like you were right on the water with very few other villas in view. The setup is perfect at Leeward with the separate building with the four bedrooms each with its own bathroon/shower just a few steps from the main house. This allowed people who wanted to go to bed earlier could do so while others wanted to stay out by the pool later. The balconies from the two masters where incredible although we didn't take advantage of them as much as we should have. I felt very secure having the kids and the babysitter in the lower level. The deck area was lovely and the pool was wonderful at the end of a day at the beach. We cooked some great meals on the outdoor grill. Plenty of space for everyone. The property was very clean and the flowers and gardens stunning. The driveway was a little scary but so has everywhere else we have stayed in St John. The location is terrific with a short drive to Cruz Bay and short cut on Gifft Hill Road over to Centerline to Coral Bay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to post a review. The views from the house are indeed beautiful. It's a simply gorgeous spot. We built the bedroom wing with our own family in mind, as we know that peace of mind is important for both parents and children. Glad you enjoyed the gardens. St John driveways can be a bit quirky. It's part of the challenge of island living, but you soon get used to it!
