Overview

Great Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

As featured on HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL 2013. THIS IS A NEW EPISODE as CHEZ SHELL WAS ALSO FEATURED ON HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL 2010 WITH DIFFERENT POTENTIAL BUYERS... Chez Shell is a two bedroom Pool Villa (pool completed as of November 2011!!!!) located near the Westin Resort in Great Cruz Bay and is just 5 minutes from down town Cruz Bay. Enjoy evening sunsets over Great Cruz Bay and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas once the sun has set for the evening. The home has two Master Suites each with en-suite Master Baths with custom showers. The entire home has beautiful quarry stone floors imported from the Middle East.

The main entrance at Chez Shell is graced by Old Chicago Brick walkways and tropical gardens bordered with palm trees, fragrant frangipani flowers, tree orchids and other tropical foliage. Once you step inside the front entry, the well-appointed great room opens up before you. Through large archways, the views of Great Cruz Bay and beyond sooth your senses. Proceed through the great room and enter the completely Screened Outdoor Living Area. Beyond the Screened Outdoor Living Area is a Sun Deck with table for out door dining and the view of Great Cruz Bay, the Sandy Beach and Swaying Palm Trees at the Westin Beach Resort. The Screened in Porch area is a great spot to read a book or enjoy evening conversations over cocktails while the sun sets in the distance. Just off the kitchen/dining area you step out to the brand new 20 X 35 pool veranda featuring classic Old Chicago Brick Pavered sun deck and native stone walls overlooking Great Cruz Bay and St. Thomas Beyond. Every room is appointed with plenty of windows to ensure that you enjoy both gorgeous ocean/harbor views and garden views regardless of where you rest.

Preparing meals in Chez Shell's well-equipped kitchen is a pleasure with plenty of lighting, great air flow and ample space to prepare your meals. Dine inside adjacent to the kitchen or outdoors on the Sun Deck. There is comfortable seating for six at the either of the indoor or outdoor dining tables with views of the Ocean/Harbor and the Island of St. Thomas.

It is a wonderful Villa for families with inside access to both of the Master Bedroom Suites directly from the Great Room. The Master Suites are air conditioned, one with garden views and one with views of Great Cruz Bay Harbor and the Ocean beyond. Chez Shell also has multiple living spaces inside and out so you may enjoy the active harbor views and sunset views towards St Thomas from many different areas.

The decor is warm and inviting and in tune with Caribbean Style living. Most of the furnishings are from India, Bali, the South West United States which includes various antiques from around the world. Chez Shell was totally remodeled in 2007 by a talented builder out of New Mexico.

The house is just a short 5 minute walk to the beaches at Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole and a short drive to the famous North Shore Beaches.

If you enjoy colorful awesome sunsets over the water, a convenient location and a beautiful place to stay, you'll find your perfect vacation waiting at Chez Shell

About Denise and John

John and Denise have been traveling to the Island since the late 1990's and finally decided to purchase a home and live on island. We love the beach and the ocean. We also love hiking on the island as it is so picturesque. We are also Licensed Real Estate Agents on St John and work with Tropical Properties in Down Town Cruz Bay in front of Castaways Tavern!

Denise and John purchased this villa in 2011

Why Denise and John chose Great Cruz Bay

We have been vacationing in the Islands since the late 1990's and fell in love with St. John the first time we visited. Contractors by trade owning a home in Paradise was a must. The Island is beautiful, the people are warm and the weather is perfect. 'Welcome to summer for the rest of your life' is the attitude on Island.

What makes this villa unique

Brand new luxurious pool was completed as of November of 2011. Also 24/7 on site concierge, separated for privacy, will allow you to have access to information either in person or by cell phone ranging from island 'must see and must do's', excursions and dinner reservations. We will personally pick you up at the ferry dock and escort you to the Villa. Villa provisioning is also available at the cost of groceries plus 25% with no delivery fee.

We will work very hard to make your vacation as relaxing and rewarding as possible to insure that you will choose us the next time you decide to visit the Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here from 9/29-10/5/13 and loved every minute of it. The four of us are best friends and decided to plan this vacation to St. Thomas/St. John last year and are so happy we did. We heard about your villa on House Hunters Int'l and decided if coming here we HAD to stay here =)

It was more than we could have imagined and the infinity pool views made for relaxing evenings. We have fallen in love with the island, the villa and the cat (Alex....what we named him) He loved the lobster and mahi mahi.

We will definitely be back and recommend Chez Shell to family and friends.

The Only Thing Wrong Is ---- You Have To Leave Eventually.

My wife and I, along with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 y/o grandson spent a week relaxing in luxury and making family memories at this delightful villa. Chez Shell exceeded all our expectations. Everything was the highest quality; in excellent working order; fully equipped; and the owners provided instant personal attention to assist in any way. We could not recommend Chez Shell more highly.

Pictures are worth a 1000 words and reality is better

We returned to St. John and after traveling to other islands and we could not have chosen a better place to stay (after staying in a condo at the Westin 9 years ago). The villa is beautiful, the location is great (close to town and grocery stores) and the pictures are exactly what you should expect. The kitchen is perfect to cook in (well stocked with gadgets, pans, knives) and the gas grill is a very nice extra, you might even consider cooking on vacation, I know I did. The villa, pool and grounds were extremely clean and well maintained. It was a perfect little piece of paradise. John and Denise were great to rent from and I would recommend the villa to anyone.

Loved our stay at Chez Shell!

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples traveling and chose this villa for the location and both bedrooms being equal. We loved everything about the Villa. The furnishings, the new swimming pool and especially the gorgeous sunsets every night, the list goes on. We can't say enough about John and Denise, their hospitality and all the care they put into this beautiful villa. We would definitely stay there again!

Our "perfect vacation" at Chez Shell!!

Our "perfect vacation" at Chez Shell!!
  • 5 of 5
We recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Chez Shell the third week of August. To sum up the villa and St. John in one word; Amazing!!
John and Denise are the perfect villa owners. Their hospitality is "second to none!"They are very helpful and accommodating . The villa is absolutely wonderful ! Perfect location, only 5-10 minutes from Cruz Bay and easy to get on main roads for traveling to other beaches.
The pool on the beautiful patio is so nice .In good weather , the views and sunsets are " to die for!"
There were a few nights we preferred staying at the villa after a busy day of snorkeling, hiking and "beach hopping." So relaxing and peaceful!!
Chez Shell is furnished nicely with a Caribbean flair and a casual atmosphere . We especially enjoyed sitting in the screened in porch area with our coffee and watching the sugar birds at the bird feeder or just soaking in the wonderful views of Great Cruz Bay.
There was plenty of room for my husband , myself and our two college age daughters.
I highly recommend Chez Shell and I can't wait to return. We've found our new favorite island !!:)

We had an outstanding stay at the The Villa Chez Shell. It was our first trip to St. John and our first big trip with our toddler. The villa was beautiful and perfect for our stay. It is close enough to the town and restaurants, and an easy walk to the beach (although chances are you'll spend more time at the other various beaches). John and Denise went out of their way to answer my questions, and even had the pack and play set-up upon our arrival. The villa was funished and taken care of like they live there, not as though it was a rental. They pay attention to the details and have the "extra" taken care of. They go out of their way to make your stay perfect. It's a shame more folks don't rent like John and Denise! We can't wait to plan our next trip back! Thanks John and Denise for your wonderful hospitality.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I selected this villa because of the great reviews and the beautiful photos on the website. We were simply awestruck from the time we walked thru the door of this beautiful well appointed villa. This was our third visit to St. John and easily our most favorite. All of the rooms were spacious, and decorated in true Caribbean "style" which only added to the experience. The villa is very open yet warm and cozy. My wife and I soon found our favorite spots to sit and enjoy the spectacular views, whether it was relaxing on chaises on the beautiful pool deck area or enjoying the view out the wall of windows in the living area. My wife and I felt that there was plenty of room for each of us to have our own "space". The view, the accommodations, the close access to beaches and Cruz Bay…I could go on forever. We will definitely recommend to friends and family, and hope to visit this beautiful villa again and again.
