Overview

East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms

Caribbean Sunrise is the ultimate in serenity and privacy. Here you are treated to spectacular views are of the bight at Norman Island and on down the Sir Frances Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda. You will find yourselves embraced by the constant tropical breezes and the crystal clear sea below.

The tastefully appointed villa is complete with ceiling fans, huge canopied king bed, well equipped kitchen, unique double sink bath, 2 outdoor showers, outdoor stereo system, grill and very private pool.

Caribbean Sunrise is part of Privateer Bay and located on a private cul-de-sac bordering undeveloped property as far as the eye can see. In this setting, you will enjoy some of the best snorkeling the island has to offer at Privateer Beach or in Hansen Bay, each just a two minute drive from your door.

Should you choose to venture out and explore the beautiful, laid back island of St. John, you are only a 12 minute drive to dining and artsy shopping boutiques in quirky Coral Bay. A 20 minute drive takes you to the world famous North Shore beaches where you can swim, snorkel, hike, wind surf and walk the beach to your heart’s content. In addition, you can visit the ruins in the National Park. Thanks to John Rockefeller, 2/3 of our beautiful island remains in the National Park.

I have been to St John 6 times over the last 15 years. I found Caribbean Sunrise to be the best accommodations I have been to. We thoroughly enjoyed the East End and would recommend this property to anyone who would prefer to get away from the touristy action of the West End. Secluded, quiet, and stunningly beautiful, this place is one that dream vacations are made of. The owners are most gracious and they make you feel right at home.

Romantic and peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was better than we could have imagined. It is perfect for two people without feeling crowded. The special features the owners put into the house really make it feel comfortable and cozy. Of course, as everyone will tell you, the views are better in person. The house is off the grid but we have stayed in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay before and truly enjoyed the privacy. We used the grill every night and had dinner on the deck overlooking the lights of Norman Island. The trade winds kept the house cool and we liked the fact that we did not have to use air conditioning and could listen to the sounds of the island and the sea at night. The snorkeling in Privateer Bay was great... it is a rocky beach but the water was clear and it was the one place we saw sting rays. For a real getaway, in a beautiful setting, in a lovely Caribbean style home... this is for you. Lastly, we enjoyed having dinner with the owners, Bob & Betsy, who we now consider to be our friends. You will not be disappointed with Caribbean Sunrise.

The perfect romantic getaway for any couple!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our honeymoon - private, remote, comfortable, clean, and so picturesque! Bob and Betsy were very friendly and accommodating, they made us feel right at home, and were always available by phone if we had any questions. If you are looking for a romantic getaway this is the place to stay! We were extremely glad we had chosen this villa on the East End of St. John because we got to mingle with some of the locals and experience the laid back lifestyle that makes St. John so special. If you enjoy grilling/cooking and laying out by the pool this villa has the perfect set-up for you. Otherwise it's a short, beautiful drive to the nearby beaches where we enjoyed lots snorkeling and hiking. We also enjoyed the local restaurants which are just a quick drive away. If you are trying to decide where to stay on the Island, the extra drive over to the East End is sooo worth it.. We were amazed at the beauty of that side of the Island! Rent a jeep and this villa, and you will have the best view of anywhere!!

Father/Son Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Where to start... Bob and Betsy your house is unbelievable. The view is out of this world! We truly enjoyed the house and its amentities. The location allows a nice cool breeze everynight. This trip allowed rest and relaxation and time with my father.

Location: Although a small drive from Cruz Bay we truly enjoyed the drive, with beautiful views in all directions. The house is super private.

House: The house is beautiful decorated and very well equipped. Each room has an amazing view!

Things to Do: We loved Cinnamon Bay and Salt Pond Bay. The small Hike to Rams Head was great!

Thank you for being so hospitable with your retreat. I look forward to my second visit in the near future

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I would like to tell you a lie so you will not consider this villa, this would give us a better chance of returning. We spent 9 glorious days at Caribbean Sunrise. This was our 2nd visit to St John, on our 1st visit we stayed in the Chocolate Hole area. Now understand, my comment to people who asked where we were staying and I would mention the East End. We are not at staying at the end of the world, but we are about the end of St John and for us it was perfect. We returned to St John for our 35th anniversary and could not have picked a better place to celebrate. If you like to party you are only 15 minutes, at the most from Coral Bay. We did drive back from Cruz Bay twice in the dark, its about 45 minutes but minimal traffic and other than curvy roads, an easy drive if you have not had too many rum drinks. We enjoy our own company and found the villa the perfect place to have a drink, relax and cook our own dinner. We brought 6 nights of meals from home frozen which we grilled at the villa, and fyi, nicest grill of a villa I have ever used. Please picture an incredible view, no other houses in site, and lazily preparing your meal at your own pace with the person you enjoy being with....now that's a vacation to me. We did have a chance to enjoy a meal with the owners of the villa on our last night in St John. We were going to enjoy an Iowa steak on the grill, but it was a pleasure to spend time with them, as they were very enjoyable company. We had a couples massage at the villa, it was my wife's birthday and by far the best gift I have ever given her. Getting a massage by Barb and Cheryl and listening to the waves, tough to take. I am a type A personality who likes to be busy and do things, This is the first vacation where I actually spent 3 days at the villa reading and staring at the view and thought what a perfect day. Another first for us was the outdoor shower, I am sold, total privacy with a view to kill for. Told my wife we need one of these in Iowa, our place is private, but without the view and wonderful breezes, just wouldn't be the same. We would and plan to return to St John in the future and I would not hesitate to again rent this villa!!

Wonderful Private Location

  • 5 of 5

You can't appreciate the absolute privacy and the rugged beauty of Caribbean Sunrise without staying there. The property is very clean and comfortable. It has all the amenities of home; it feels like home - except it's on a rocky hill over looking the Caribbean Sea and British Virgin Islands! The owners are very helpful and trustworthy. I recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet and private vacation while staying in an absolutely perfect home for two.
