OUR BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a great vacation place to go with a family! We took the kids for Spring break. Traveling with teens can be difficult, but this villa was spacious and well-appointed. Everyone had enough space to spread out and the views were spectacular from all venues. The deck was fabulous to hang out - either in the hammock or just chilling on the couch - watching dish TV (for the kids) or the views (me and my husband).

St. John has the most beautiful beaches, you have to visit a new one each day. The villa was the perfect place to return to each day - we would hang out at the shared pool -but it was really like a private pool - we only saw the other tenant once - and had a great time with them by the way!

A new driveway and retaining wall was just installed, so no noise from the road - the kids had plenty of space to safely roam around, and we were only a 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay.

The owner is friendly and accommodating - he helped set up a fishing trip and a catamaran snorking trip.

This is a great place for a family - the kitchen was terrific, the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious with fluffy towels, and there were coolers, chairs, blankets and towels available to use for our beach hopping. For families with young children or teenagers - this is the place to stay (especially after checking out the hotel prices!) I might even come back with my girlfriends for a girl's getaway! It would also be terrific vacation place for a group of couple friends. This villa has it all for everyone!

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned home from a two week stay in the upper floor 2 BR villa. This accommodation was perfect for our family, two adults and two young children (5 and 18 months). The pool and deck, with a fabulous sunset view, were great for us and the kids after mornings spent at the beach. The baby could nap, while we still enjoyed the outside. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. There were beach chairs, coolers and toys available for beach trips. The location was convenient to town and north shore beaches, as well as exploring Coral Bay. The bedrooms are split on either side of the living room, so it would also be a great place for two couples to share. When you take the time to compare prices, this property is a fantastic value. We highly recommend it! Can't wait to go back. Special thanks to James for being so accommodating and easy to work with.

A Great Setting for a Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks on the magnificent island of St. John. We have visited St. John many times, and this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. We had a beautiful view from the lovely deck. The house was private and very comfortable. It was a plus to take a dip in the pool when we returned from the beach each day. The house was close to Cruz Bay for nightlife. The hosts were very helpful and hospitable.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family made a big splurge and provided a vacation for Our Christmas this year. We have 4 kids (5yr-12yrs). We had the vacation of a lifetime. We looked at a lot of rentals and found this one to be a great central location, closer to the most popular beaches but also to the opposite side of the island which you are going to want to visit! It was also one of the most affordable for its size, that included a pool. We loved that the bedrooms were all in the same unit! We loved the pool and hot tub, used them almost daily after days at the beach. All beach amenities were provided and even the car for, a small price, directly from James! This was so convenient. James was great to pick us up from the fairy and give us a short tour of the island. We loved the back deck. However, DO NOT sleep out there (we learned the hard way) as you will be absolutely covered in bug bites. The beds were comfortable, condo clean and stocked well. The property was just beautiful. James was fantastic to work with. We happened to travel the week of the huge snowstorms back east that shut down airports so we had to stay a few extra days due to delayed flights. Luckily there were a few available nights when we needed them and James gave us such a great discount to be able to stay two more nights which we are forever grateful for. We would absolutely Come back here! You will not regret staying here for a minute!

Wonderful place-Convenient, luxurious & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great villa and you won't be disappointed if you rent it. My kids (teenagers) and I spent a week here and it was just right. James was very accommodating to our Thursday-Thursday schedule, and also rented us a sturdy 4-wheel drive car at a discounted rate. We took a cab from the airport in St. Thomas to Red Hook, caught the ferry over and James picked us up at the dock. He filled us on some good things to do while taking us straight to the house, only 10 min from the dock. The house has a nice main living area, great AV set-up, a kitchen with everything we needed and a wonderful westward view of Cruz Bay. It was very convenient to the town, as well as to highway 104 which goes right up to the centerline road, so it was quick to get to anywhere on the island. Each bedroom had a bathroom and the four of us were very comfortable. AC was available but with the breeze we never needed it. Many of the other reviews of other properties I read mentioned chickens and donkeys making all sorts of noise early in the morning, but I never heard them here. The only sounds were the occasional dog in the distance or a horn from a truck rounding the nearby bend in the road. The pool and hot tub were terrific, and great to return to after a day at the beach. The house had beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and a basket full of information brochures and magazines. Wi-fi was fast and worked everywhere in the house and around the pool. We typically would start the day with a run down the back roads, checking out the great views, followed by a jump in the pool, and then enjoying a smoothie from the blender as we sat on the porch. We then would set off on the days adventure. Upon return, we would relax in the hot tub before cooking our dinner or going out and then come home to watch some of their supplied movies or on Dish TV. Definitely consider eating in occasionally. There is a market about 5 min away from the property, but be prepared for sticker shock on food items in St. John. Everything except chicken and plantains is 2-3 times what you are probably used to paying, but it's still far cheaper than eating out. If I had to think of a negative on the property it would be that we did get some mosquitos occasionally in the house despite our best efforts, but that was only one 1-2 days when the wind was down. James was very responsive and took us back to the ferry right on time. I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a relaxing week in St. John.

We love Rendezvous Villa

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I, as we as my adult son and girlfriend stated at Rendezvous Villa at Christmas Time. This was my eighth trip to St. John. By far, this was the best villa we have stayed in. The villa was lovely and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook many meals at home. The deck overlooking the water was amazing. We enjoyed have dinner on the deck with lights twinkling and the stars shining over St. Thomas in the distance. There was more than ample room in the Villa for four adults. The outside area - the pool and lounge area with couches and bid screen tv - was beautiful. My son and his girlfriend practically lived out there. We rented a jeep from Jim and it couldn't have been easier. He met us at the dock in Cruz Bay and delivered us back there on our departure. Jim is awesome and a wonderful host. We can't wait to go back next year.

Boatman Rd is a very upscale residential neighborhood adjacent to Chocolate Hole, great for walking to take in the phenomenal ocean views, and incredible cliff-side vacation homes. Very safe and low-traffic with access to the water in several spots, but very hilly! Also great trail hiking in the National Park, a short drive away.

Within the 5 minute drive to town you will pass the Westin Resort and all the grocery/wine stores (St. John Market is a 2 minute drive). It is an easy drive home from Cruz Bay after a great restaurant meal or fun in the local bars and pubs.

We are centrally located so getting to the some of the best beaches in the world is easy to do. Most north shore National Park beaches are a 15 minute drive. You can drive to Skinny legs in Coral Bay in about 20 minutes.
