About Christine Fano

Mark and Christine, and their two teenage boys came for a vacation in 2010, and feel in love with St. John. They decided to build their dream vacation home on a beautiful piece of property in paradise, on their first vacation visit. That's how quickly they fell in love with St. John. St. John is like a small town; everyone is treated like family.Then add the beautiful beaches, the sun and the turquoise water; it is heaven on earth.

Christine Fano purchased this villa in 2013

Why Christine Fano chose Rendezvous Bay

Mark and Christine picked this beautiful location for their incredible views of the turquoise Caribbean, the relaxing sound of the ocean hitting the beach below, and the trade winds that cool you. They liked the upscale neighborhood of Klein Bay, which is very quiet but is only minutes from Cruz Bay, which is the main hub in town. Casa La Famiglia has a private walking path that is a minute walk to the beach below for a swim or snorkel.

What makes this villa unique

Owners and guests of Klein Bay villa's have access to a private pebble beach that is part of the Klein Bay Association. Klein Bay has some of the best snorkeling on St. John. Since Casa La Famiglia is just above the ocean, you will hear the ocean waves gently hitting the shore. Casa La Famiglia has a private walking path that will take you to Klein Bay's private beach. Because the owner's realized how long of a day it is for guests traveling, they will provide drinks and appetizers upon arrival, dinner for the entire group on the first evening.

"WOW, WOW and WOW!!!"

"WOW, WOW and WOW!!!"
  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Casa La Famiglia! Beginning with the my initial conversation with the owner, Christine, to looking at the house in the construction phase, to walking through the completed masterpiece, was unbelievable! I had searched for months, trying to find the perfect villa for a group of us. My top search criteria was: four identical master suites, a pool, and great views. After looking one last time, I stumbled across Casa La Famiglia. I knew it was meant to be! I could not believe this villa had everything I was looking for and then some! I contacted Christine because I had numerous questions and from the first phone call, I knew I wanted to rent from this wonderful, helpful individual. She has done a fantastic job with the villa's website but nothing prepares you for the first moment of walking through the main entry and being awed by the amazing views! They have truly thought of everything in this villa. We could not have wanted one thing, in fact, we were constantly finding so many little extras that I had never had in any other rental! (Seriously, who has an entire drawer of spices, a Margaritaville blender, and a belgian waffle maker??) The bedrooms were heavenly, the indoor/outdoor showers in each suite was luxurious and the common areas had more than enough room/seating for everyone! This villa was also easy to get to, which, is not the case with many villas built into the St. John hillsides. The property manager, Justin, was readily available, should we have any questions or needs.

We rented this villa, with a group of friends, for our daughter's wedding, so this was a very stressful time for me. I cannot tell you how peaceful and serene Casa La Famiglia was--just what I needed to come back to after a hectic day of wedding errands! To be able to sit in the hot tub, under the starlit sky at night, while the remote controlled lanterns were illuminated in the background, was magical!

Needless to say, checkout day was very sad for all of us! We will definitely return to Casa La Famiglia!

Best vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures are amazing on the website and I had them as my screen saver at work the weeks leading up to our vacation. When we finally stepped foot into Casa La Famiglia it was breathtaking and beautiful beyond our expectation. We traveled with 3 other couples and 2 kids ages 12 and 6. From the time we logged on to put in our deposit we felt like we were part of the family. Christine put us in touch with amazing people to help us like Justin, Piper and Drew! Justin and Piper picked us up at he ferry and hooked us up with beautiful brand new Jeeps. They were a phone call away if we needed anything. Drew (St John Concierge) helped us find the best day trip to the BVI and was available to answer all of our questions. The house is truly amazing and perfectly designed for 4 couples and their children. They thought of everything anybody would need. The kitchen was incredibly stocked with spices, oils, condiments, papertowels, incredible appliances, pots, pans, glasses. Everything top of the line from the Restoration Hardware towels to the William Sonoma plates and silverware. Let me just ramble about some of my favorites.. Welcome dinner and drinks, Sonos WIFI music inside and out, remote control candles, beach bag and towels for each room, beach chairs, coolers, snorkle equipment for all sizes, kayak, rafts, indoor/outdoor showers in each guestroom. We snorkled in quiet Klein bay in the morning and went to the beautiful St John beaches in the afternoon but loved coming back to the house for happy hour. We floated in the infinity pool to watch the incredible Sunset and aftergow turn to stars. We would all go inside to cook together and listen to music, no need to go out. We loved all of the dining and sitting areas. We ate at the beautiful kitchen table, the back patio table and especially enjoyed the lit up courtyard or grotto (as we called it). We had the threat of a tropical storm come through but Justin came over to bring in the outdoor furniture and we felt safe in the house with a full generator. We were lucky it went by St John with only a 1/2 day rain. So much to do in the house (every game imaginable) that it didn't matter. Christine and Mark thought of everthing to make your vacation special. Just show up and enjoy.

A Wonderful Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at Casa La Famiglia was fantastic - right from the moment we stepped foot on St. John. A member of the courteous staff greeted our party after we arrived by ferry, and our luggage was quickly loaded into the taxi. Once we secured our 2 rental cars, the rental car drivers from our party followed our taxi to the house for a tour of the grounds.

The house was simply awesome! The stunning visuals from the house's informative web page came to life in the blink of an eye. From the beautifully decorated rooms to the view of Klein Bay across the infinity pool, it was obvious that you were standing in an extraordinary place. The kids took off exploring down over the hill to Klein Bay, and we got ourselves acquainted with the fully equipped kitchen - complete with a delicious dinner calling our name from within the refrigerator.

The house has a classic, Old World feel to it, but don't get disappointed, technology lovers - Casa La Famiglia has more digital options than a new car. There is a large, 3D HDTV with channels provided by Dish, a BluRay player, an iMac, outdoor music, WiFi access, and a network extender from AT&T (not to mention a variety of state-of-the-art appliances in the kitchen). Plus, Throwback Thursday wouldn't have been complete without BluRays of "The Brady Bunch" and classic games including Pictionary, Uno, and [my new favorite] Farkel.

Our nominated rental car drivers appreciated the amenities on the exterior. There was more than enough room for our 4-door rental Jeeps in the driveway, and there was easy access to a hose for cleaning the house beach chairs and snorkel gear prior to returning them to the storage building near the driveway. Access to town for dining or shopping was just a short drive away, so the house location provided a great balance between island getaway seclusion and quick access to the 'lights of town'.

The staff did an aMAzing job of staying in communication with the house via phone calls and text messages to ensure the experience was exceeding our expectations. We really didn't have to lift a finger - the hardest thing we did each morning was pull ourselves from an extremely comfortable bed to decide which beautiful beach we wanted to visit after a short, scenic trek through beautiful St. John. However, the last morning of our vacation was the most difficult, because after a week at Casa La Famiglia we couldn't tell if we were going home or leaving home … :D

Simply the best vacation villa on STJ!

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of 4 couples and I get a little too into the process of finding the PERFECT place to stay. We found the construction blog for Casa Lafamiglia and followed for 6 months before deciding this was our place. Christine was perfect and set up every detail beforehand. There are simply not words for the view when you pull into the villa, but most importantly, the view when you open the front door. A short 10 minutes got us anywhere we wanted to go including downtown or the Starfish Market for all of our shopping/grocery needs. Simply put, we will NEVER look for another villa after finding Christine and Mark's home. Knowing the quality/location of the home and the people we are dealing with takes all of the stress out of booking the perfect vacation home. We hope to go back at least every other year. Your search is over.. book it!

What a wonderful home. We have rented many villas in the past including two others in St. John, but never anything like this. Outstanding location, unbelievable accommodations and the best owners that we have ever met. Perfect place for our anniversary vacation with our family; ages 68 to 3. We had 10 total and it was perfect.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
What can say but wow! The owners are delightful and their home away from home spectacular. We loved everything about it. You will want for nothing. We had 4 adults and 5 children ages 10 - 12. Yes 2 sets of twins:). The kids loved the pool, hot tub, kayaks, and even the outdoor showers. The adults did too but I think the endless views captured me the most.
St. John is beautiful island with tons of snorkeling, good restaurants, beaches, hiking etc. I do have 2 specific recommendations. 1. Born to Rhumb (boat charter)
Shane and Andi are the owners. They were terrific. Great with kids too. We went to the BVI, snorkeled at the Indians, then some caves, then lunch at Norman island with more snorkeling, Peter island and back. They customize trips to your liking! Highly recommend.

2. Paradise massage - Barb and Cary - they come to you. An awesome massage in your own home!
Definitely an indulgence worth having!

We plan to return in the not too distant future!

Thank you Christine!
