Overview

Quacco & Zimmerman Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps up to 10.

*** Check out our new lower rates for last minute bookings ***

Villa Agel is a spacious and elegant villa set on a knoll overlooking Coral Bay, Drake's Passage, and the British Virgin Islands. Though it is only minutes from the best beaches and restaurants in the Caribbean, guests enjoy complete privacy, whether sunning by the large pool or dining outside in the shade of palm trees and flowering bougainvillea. You'll fall asleep to the gentle lapping of waves on the nearby shore.

Exceptional design, craftsmanship and landscaping set Villa Agel apart. Traditional West Indian stone walls and arches are complemented by rich mahogany woodwork. You will enjoy the well-equipped spacious granite and mahogany kitchen. A formal dining area and living room wrap around the central stone tower, and a separate wet bar is great for entertaining.

At the heart of this remarkable compound is a generous and very private pool, bordered by terra cotta tile decks to delight sun worshippers. If you prefer shade, two pergolas, mature palms and lush tropical gardens offer several quiet retreats from the sun. Antique brick arches surround an expansive covered gallery overlooking the pool and Coral Bay. Each of the three master bedroom suites on the main level opens onto a different view of the pool and gardens and each also has views of Coral Bay and beyond. All are carefully appointed with traditional Caribbean mahogany furniture, are air-conditioned, and boast vaulted ceilings.

If your party requires a fourth bedroom, an additional elegant master bedroom suite is available on the lower level. Stone walls and arched windows frame views of Coral Bay and historic Fortsberg making this suite especially romantic. The largest of all the bedroom suites, it features a beautiful stone bathroom and shower, and is appointed with traditional mahogany furniture.

Privacy is given very high priority at Villa Agel. All four bedrooms (3 have AC) are well-separated by public rooms, patios, and gardens.

Guests have the personal attention of our onsite managers. Schedules permitting, we will meet you at the villa to acquaint you with everything. You may never want to leave.

Villa Agel is especially well-suited for small weddings. A small surcharge will apply, depending on the number of guests. We can offer advice on caterers, cakes, officiators and photographers.

Guestbook Comment

Where do I begin? My husband and I chose to have a beach -barefoot- wedding in St. John. Selecting the island was easy as it was my mother's favorite island of all the Caribbean. She passed away 4 1/2 years before our wedding day. Knowing how hard that day would be without her being there, I searched for a villa that would accommodate for my family. My dad gets the credit for finding Villa Agel. It was the perfect setting for the entire week! Mike & Patrick were fabulous! They graciously allowed us to hold the reception at the villa. I think having 3 active preachers in our families helped them understand our wedding wasn't going to be the typical beach wedding that could easily get out of control. :) Our families have never experienced any home as breathtaking as Villa Agel. Our wedding planner, Shea of KatiLady Katering, did a phenomenal job decorating the villa and providing for our guests. Everyone was thrilled to have been able to 'experience' Villa Agel. I could easily elaborate more on this!

The views, kitchen, and decorations are mentioned well in the other comments. What hasn't been mentioned yet are the beautiful birds, caterpillars, fabulous location, and vegetation! The plants are unbelievably lush! Mike and Patrick have done a fabulous job with all the landscaping details! There is honestly not one detail that has been overlooked. Even the contents of the welcome basket are perfectly selected! My husband and I returned to the States with some fabulous ideas for our ideal home we plan on building in the upcoming months. We are grateful and appreciative of Mike & Patrick for opening their home to visitors like us! One last item, if you make Villa Agel your place to stay once, beware as you will never want to stay anywhere else in St. John ever again. :) We are obviously planning a return trip!

A Memorable 50th Anniversary Celebration at Villa Agel

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be able to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Villa Agel. There was enough space for everyone to have their private times as well as large spaces for all to congregate. The home has a very "Old Island feel". All of the sections are beautiful and immaculate, with a spectacular view of the East end and Tortola. The pool is spacious on a lovely patio, and is well maintained. Most important, the driving access to the Villa is very easy. We've stayed in many different Villa's on STJ over the last 27 years and this is on the top of our list.

Diane and Fitz are wonderful hosts, being very attentive to our needs , making sure we had enough linens, towels, beach chairs, etc for our large group.

Other than it's people, the beaches are the most part of STJ. Go to as many different ones as possible. They are all beautiful and everyone has a favorite .As far as snorkeling, following the Sea Turtles on Maho is fun, but the most exquisite spot is Waterlemon Cay. Also, make sure you take the walk out to Drunk Bay from Salt Bay. You'll be rewarded at the end.

Our favorite restaurant on this trip was Sweet Plantains and the "take out" pizza from Indigo Grille was first rate.

Many thanks to Diane and Fitz for the opportunity for a memorable vacation,

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Villa Agel and it was even better than the first. The Villa is beautiful inside and out, tastefully decorated and surrounded by a gorgeous tropical garden. The view of Coral Bay, Francis Drake Passage and the BVI from the Villa's breezy perch atop a knoll is mesmerizing. The pool is very private and inviting though if it were me, I would have installed some pool lighting during it's construction to add to the night time ambiance. New Villa managers Diane and Fitz were very welcoming and helpful. My only disappointment was not with the Villa but with the Coral Bay community in general. I've been coming to St. John for 40 years and it's sad to see locals who don't seem to care about or appreciate the beauty of their Island. Garbage dumpsters next to the main road were overflowing and foul smelling for days. The roads in general seem to get worse on each visit- but hey, at least there IS a paved road to Villa Agel unlike many other rental Villas. I've rented several other homes on St. John but Villa Agel would be my pick for a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for returning to Villa Agel. It was a pleasure to meet you both! We understand your disappointment about the garbage. The trash overflowing from the dumpsters is an eyesore. It's such a sharp contrast to the beauty of the island. Hopefully the situation will improve before your next visit (and we do hope to see you again)! Diane and Fitz

Awesome Vacation & Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Villa Agel property is best with property care takers that are willing to accommodate a vacation for first time home renters. With that said Di & Fitz turned a late arrival to St John's and Villa Agel into a "Concierge" experience. We are very thankful to Di & Fitz to make this happen for us! The accommodations are "first class". We/I know this as I am a traveler for business that some folks would dream to have and I turn this nightmare schedule in to fun.

So speaking of fun. This home is very nice, with a location that I would recommend this to anyone that will listen to me :-). We will return and hopefully Di & Fitz will figure out how to put up with us for 2 weeks!

The Villa Agel is a nice home that will accommodate a group of friends/family of what they advertise easily and room to spare. Pool is perfect and just the right amount of external dining facilities and inside dining facilities.

So, Di & Fitz as you know from a demanding traveler........ I must have some suggestions :-) What could you improve on, more services to guests, complimentary for repeat guests :-), charge for additional "concierge items, more activity "stuff" on site to share or rent? BTW none of this is even required but what if?? This was available Domino's- Papa John Delivery or Island favorite pizza!

In closing thank you for having us Johnson & Tull Family!

Will we remain your best and favorite guests?

I will send you an email to share for future guests of awesome things to do on St John's when staying at Villa Agel. This is really worth something!

Owner's Response: Hi Bruce, It was great to meet your family and we appreciate you staying at Villa Agel. Hopefully you will return for two weeks next season...a week just isn't long enough! I don't think you'll see pizza delivery in Coral Bay in the near future but luckily it's on the menu at Indigo Grill so you don't have to travel too far to get your fix :) Diane and Fitz

Hard to Beat It!

  • 5 of 5

The house features wonderful view, a beautiful and private pool, comfortable beds, and is nicely decorated. The road is a winding, hilly road but once you are here (hit the grocery and liquor store first) you won't want to leave. Bathrooms are "outdoor" with open air (screened) areas. Fully stocked kitchen. Wifi not that great but works. Hosts were gracious and helpful. There are 4BR, two in the main house, two in the pool house. If I return to St. John, I will stay there again.
