Fish Bay Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 spacious bedrooms with Caribbean view balconies and 2 full baths. Beautiful

Great value! Beautiful new 900 sq. ft. air conditioned apartment has two large bedrooms, both with views, both with comfortable queen size beds. 2 full baths and a comfortable living room, dining room and modern kitchen with everything you need for a pleasant stay. A 50 foot long balcony provides a spot to sit and enjoy a book or just take in the view. Colorful gardens and landscaping surround the property and you are encouraged to pick fruit from the trees. Depending on the season there are bananas, star fruit, key limes, mangoes, papaya,and more. There is central air but with the sea breezes you hardly need it. The nearest beach (Klien 1/2 mile) is cobblestone but the snorkeling is great. Reef Bay Beach is about 5 minutes by car and offers exceptional views and privacy. The apartment borders Nature Conservancy land and is in Fish Bay, a quiet peaceful place 10 minutes from town and 20 minutes to the beautiful north shore beaches. Beach chairs, beach towels and ice chests are provided as will as friendly help and local knowledge. Free WiFi and laptop provided.

About John Dickson

Your hosts John and Linda have lived and worked on St. John for 10 years and love to share their knowledge of the island and the location of their favorite snorkle spots, hiking trails and best places to shop and eat.

Why John Dickson chose St John

Ocan View is the perfect get away located in the lovely valley above Fish Bay and has beautiful views and trade wind breezes.

It is just a short hop to Cruz Bay for dining or shopping. There is a long flat driveway with plenty of parking.

What makes this apartment unique

There are beautiful views from every room including the bathrooms.

Cool and comfortable sleeping, dining and just relaxing.

You will love it!

I do my best to spend at least one week to 10 days in St. John, VI, every year. This year I spent 8 days on this property and I can sincerely assure anybody that is a great place to spend a vacation. The house was immaculate clean, very well maintained and surpassed by far my expectations. The manager and his wife are top class pleople, very friendly and caring.

I highly recommend this place to anybody.

Quiet location, Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our August stay with John and Linda was the best on St John so far. The house was stocked with everything we needed and more. AC units in bedrooms and main room kept us comfy and cool. John met us at the ferry dock and after we got squared away with our jeep rental company, lead us to the house. Linda had left us a homemade banana bread as a welcome surprise. Linda and John live above the rental unit and we enjoyed several conversations about island life as well as a visit or two with their sweet dog and cat. There is ample flat parking on the crushed stone drive and only 3 or 4 steps down to the entrance patio of the rental unit. Highly recommended!

Wonderful place, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nicely furnished, clean and comfortable for our family of 4. John and Linda were fantastic hosts and a real pleasure to meet. They shared home cooked treats as well as their knowledge of the island. We enjoyed many of the hikes John recommended and had a great time picking our gifts at their gift store in town. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable place to stay, I highly recommend. Enjoy, we certainly did! Eric, Pam Kyle and Ian

Everything you need in one spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 7 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week. The apartment was very clean, quiet and a great place to relax in the evening after multiple days at the beach. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make meals at ‘home’ if you want to stay in for dinner or make a picnic to take with you. We felt very much at home and can’t wait to go back.

John & Linda are the best hosts that you could ask for. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. It is reassuring to have friends on the island that can answer any questions and help out if something is needed.

My wife and daughter love Linda’s Cruz Bay shop Pink Papaya. This is a must visit for island gifts and art.

Great Place, Great People, Great Deal

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to St. John six times. We found this place after the Fish Bay villa we normally stay in was booked. How glad I am it was. This is a very nice apartment on the south side of Cruz Bay. Very nice accommodation in a beautiful neighborhood. Clean, quiet, safe, and roomy. Towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, books on St. John, coolers , fully equipped property etc. Every thing you need at an affordable price. Peaceful and pretty.

Nearby Klein bay is private and beautiful. You have the beach to yourself. Sharks, Rays, turtles conch. You name it. North shore beaches are accessed via the Center Line Rd. or through town. Close to town for a night out and nearby markets for staying in and cooking for yourself. John and Linda are just lovely hosts. Their open hearts and open home help make the trip all the better. After a week there, I'll always think of them as friends.

Exceptional hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed with John and Linda for eight nights and we can't say enough about the warm welcome and hospitality we enjoyed during our vacation to St. John. John met us at the car ferry with a map and guided us to the property. Linda is an amazing baker and brought down cookies and coffee cake and other treats every day. Our boys are still raving about her Jumbie Cookies! They shared key limes, mangoes and star fruit from trees on the property. We were able to use snorkel gear and kayaks and tips from their experiences on STJ to help us choose "off-the-beaten-path" beaches and snorkels to suit our interests. In addition, John has a coffee shop/bookstore and stocks a killer Vietnamese coffee that blew our socks off! He also turned us on to some great reads. Linda has a beautiful gift shop in town that's also worth checking out for gifts and jewelry to take home. The flat has amazing views from the deck and a terrific cross-breeze. We never used AC and slept under fans. We cooked every day and found the kitchen well-appointed for our needs. John and Linda's attention make this flat a terrific base for an amazing STJ vacation.

Two thirds of St. John is protected forever as a US National Park and huge areas of the surrounding waters are Coral Reef National Monument. A truly special place. The apartment is located overlooking Fish Bay, a quiet rural valley just 10 minutes from Cruz Bay and another 10 minutes from the fabulous North Shore Beaches.
