Great house on St. John

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six and there was plenty of room for all of us. We had a great time in the house. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. They had coolers, beach chairs and beach towels for the beach. Shade was provided by mangrove trees. You definitely need a car to get around the island. The house is less then 5 mins from the 2 major food markets and less then 10 min drive to Cruz Bay. Great house!

Excellent, would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property in an excellent location. Very helpful owner and property manager, responsive to all needs and questions. Very comfortable, roomy place for six adults for a week. (One very minor issue: don't try to put an adult on the rollaway bed. That was hilarious. Use the futon instead.) My whole family loved the place. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks very much to the owner and property manager.

The Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Desde el primer momento fue un experiencia superior a nuestras expectativas. Villa Catalina es una casa de ensueño, con una vista increíble, una terraza donde desayunar se convirtió en una experiencia fuera de serie, una piscina para descansar a la tarde y todas las comodidades! Las camas king super confortables, los baños completos, todo decorado con muy buen gusto como para hacerte sentir mejor que en tu casa!! Un placer tratar con Claudia, la dueña, quien nos orientó en todas nuestras necesidades para hacer que la experiencia fuera perfecta! Saint john brinda toda clase de actividades para entretenerse ademas de sus playas de arenas doradas y parques nacionales con ruinas danesas. Los restaurantes y negocios son un plus para la estadía y la cantidad de excursiones posibles nos dejo con ganas varios viajes mas!! Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa y super recomendable! Gracias.

Vacation in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in St. John and the fabulous Villa Catalina. This vacation was truly amazing!! It was our second time on the island and our first at Villa Catalina. I cannot say enough how pleasant and easy it was to deal with the owner, Claudia. From start to finish this was truly easy breezy. The villa was exactly as pictured (even better in real life) It had everything you could possibly need to enjoy yourself on this little piece of Paradise called St. John. We were met at the ferry by Myrtle who was wonderful and patient while we dealt with renting our jeeps, etc. We were a family of 6; all adults (4 young adults) I would recommend this place for a large family or 3 couples traveling together. Waking up and seeing the Caribbean from your bed just cannot be beat!! Very peaceful and quiet location, only 10 minutes to Cruz Bay and about 20 minutes to the many amazing beaches of St. John. The villa is well maintained and cared for and it shows. Lots of books and games in case you are bored or need something to do; along with a beautiful new flat screen tv (which we never turned on!) Great wifi and cell service at the villa too. We cannot wait to come back!! Not to be missed.... Joe's Rum Hut, Rhumblines and the Longboard in Cruz Bay, Miss Lucy's in Coral Bay and of course, Columbo's Smoothie Stand on Centerline Road. We frequented Hawksnest Beach, Jumbie Beach, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay, Francis Bay, Salt Pond Bay and Drunk Bay. A different beach every day; what could be better?? Jeep rentals through St. John Car Rental; very easy to work with. We did a 1/2 day Catamaran snorkel sail on the Kekoa- would highly recommend. All girl crew was fantastic and fun. We hated to leave; truly. We will be back!!!! Thank you Claudia and Javier!!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Catalina in January with another couple with children. It was perfect! Claudia was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions. House managers were prompt picking us up at the dock and helped us getting our rental car and also settled in at the house. The house is beautiful, very clean, well maintained with the most spectacular views! The two bedrooms and baths upstairs were spacious, linens plentiful and beds very comfortable. The older kids stayed downstairs and they loved. Living room and kitchen had everything we needed, furniture was nice. Wifi and TV worked fine. Pool was great, nice to jump into after a day at the beach to rinse off, and very private. The deck was a perfect place to relax with an amazing view! , enough to seat a handful of people! We had a wonderful time on St John and absolutely loved this house! We will definitely be back!
