Skytop Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) Vacation Rental

Welcome to 'I Delfini' on beautiful St. John, US Virgin Islands; the perfect choice for the discerning Caribbean traveler, seeking a taste of island living at its finest.

Our vacation rental is newly remodeled and stylishly furnished, offering spectacular views of the blue Caribbean, along with sunset performances that are frequently stunning.

Conveniently situated just 3 miles from the main town, we are also discretely off the beaten track to provide the perfect, peaceful respite for some R&R, island style.

We are fortunate in having a couple of pleasant beaches nearby. Additionally, we are surrounded by green space and just a short jaunt to National Park Service trail heads.

The idyllic setting, overlooking Fish Bay and a pristine nature reserve, takes full advantage of the islands natural amenities at their very best. Sleep to chirping Coqui frogs and wake to chattering Bananaquit birds. Don’t forget the breathtaking views from every angle!

The large private deck is a great spot for at home BBQ's or a happy hour cocktail after a day on the beach. Other comforts include free WIFI internet, newly renovated teak kitchen, gas grill and on-site parking. The kitchen was upgraded just a few years ago and the bathroom was remodeled in 2014.

Owner owned and operated, “I Delfini” will be everything you could hope for; an absolutely delightful (and WARM!) break from reality. You won’t be disappointed.

WONDERFUL!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh visit to St. John. "I Delfini" was a wonderful place to stay! It was perfect for 2 people and had everything we could possibly need! The view is just gorgeous! The photos do not do this place justice. The bedroom has sliding doors that let the breezes come right in. We truly enjoyed getting to know our hosts, Katha & Vezio. The are wonderful people that respect your privacy. You'd never even know they were there! If you are looking for a quaint, cozy and comfortable place for two....THIS IS IT!!

Ten days in PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

We have done some traveling in the States and Europe as well as several cruises, but this vacation has found it's way to the top of our list. As others have stated, Katha and Vezio are great hosts without being intrusive. They leave you alone unless you need something and then they are right there for you.

The suite is perfect for two. Clean beyond all expectations yet very homey. Everything is there including pots and pans. The view is awesome! Sitting half way up the hill overlooking Fish Bay, you can see for miles and miles across the Caribbean. We found the pace quite leisurely on the Island. We went into "town" and hit some of the beach bars and restaurants which are lots of fun. We also spent time on the deck of the apartment just talking and reading.

You really do need a car or Jeep, but do not fear driving on the left. It becomes second nature almost immediately. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are only minutes away and the sugar sand, warm sun and great snorkeling await you.

We highly recommend renting from Katha and Vezio. They will quickly become your friends in St. John.

It is not a question of whether we rent here again, but when! Soon I hope.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think my words can explain how perfect everything was! The house suite was very private and had everything we needed to make this mother-daughter vacation great! Katha & Vinzo were so welcoming and just around the corner to answer every question we might have! They were spot on with every recommendation they had regarding places to visit, eat & best beaches! This experience exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to visit again!!!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Recommended without hesitation, pictures do not do it justice. Home is very clean and well appointed, beautiful view, Katha & Vezio are warm, friendly and available if needed but provided complete privacy. Hiking trails available within walking distance allowing a welcome reprieve from driving steep and winding island roads!

Perfect for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Apartment was very clean, functional and private with all amenities we needed. Hosts (Katha & Vezio) we're very welcoming and helpful without being overly visible. We had a very calm and relaxing anniversary vacation. Highly recommended.

Great cozy spot!

  • 5 of 5

A great in-law apartment in Katha and Vezio's home. It's updated, new grill, nicely furnished. Really, everything you could want, and anything lacking, just ask. They could not be more helpful!

Steep drive up, have and use 4WD!

Really, the only drawback was an occasional waft of sewage or rotting trash odor, i strongly suspect it was either an algae bloom in Fish Bay or else unfortunate wind direction from the closest trash dump. You can hardly fault the property or the owners!

Great views, of the bay and sunsets in a quiet and lovely setting.

Perfect for a couple!

Thanks you two for a terrific stay and for all your help! We loved it!

Owner's Response: Clarification of odor issue: Unfortunately, during the stay of these guests, there occurred the demise of a deer on the property directly below us. This caused a brief episode of unpleasantness before it could be cleared away. The problem is now entirely resolved with no lingering effects. It has never happened before and is extremely unlikely to reoccur in the future. Right now, the most notable scent is of our flowering Star Jasmine shrub. : > Thank you for your understanding.
