About the property

St John's most beautiful villa featuring 5 bedrooms sleeps 2-12 near Cruz Bay.

This home fared very well during the hurricanes and is now ready and available for visiting! Casa De Sonadores (House of Dreamers) is located on one of the uppermost lots in gated Virgin Grand Estates, a private neighborhood of multi million dollar luxury villas. As our property manager meets and greets you in Cruz Bay, you'll likely get a rental vehicle and be escorted to the property for a tour. The drive is about 7 minutes to the villa on good paved roads. As you drive between the villas massive native stone walls you will immediately be in awe of the panoramic view that stretches from Little St. James in the south, past St. Thomas and Hans Lollick in the west, to Lovango in the northwest. Breathtaking is not an overstatement. If you arrive near sunset the year round blazing sunset views are indescribable. The views from this location are so much better in person than can be captured by photography.

Inside you will see the results of years put into design and construction. The award winning architect went all out with features such as 7' high massive native stone privacy walls and privacy gate, the most beautiful round gourmet kitchen on St John, bedrooms with solid walled privacy terraces, a game room and theater room for the occasional rainy day, and a sunny pool deck that gets sun almost all day long. The villa air conditioning, shaded veranda, and covered terraces are there for those seeking a bit less sun. Take your time to look over the details in the photos of Casa De Sonadores. While this property is priced very competitive it is truly among the most spectacular on the island.

There are not many better locations on St John than upper Virgin Grand Estates. About a half-mile below are the restaurants, beach and fitness room of the Westin Resort. An easy walk downhill but slower back up. The renowned restaurants and shops of the delightful village of Cruz Bay are a 7 minute drive, entirely on paved roads. St. John's famed north shore beaches like Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Maho and Francis are also a short drive away.

Contact us with all your questions. We love to talk about Casa De Sonadores and St John. John and Vicky will reply back quickly and if they don't have answers they will get them from our excellent property managers.

About John and Vicky Daly

My family presently lives in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Now over 20 years ago my wife and I first went to St John on our honeymoon. Falling in love with the island and after many wonderful trips back we developed the property known as Virgin Grand Estates. Casa De Sonadores is the result of years of work and planning for a spectacular home away from home in our favorite place.

John and Vicky Daly purchased this villa in 2003

Why John and Vicky Daly chose Estate San Soucci

A lot of thought was put into where to build on St John. For us, choosing one of the most magnificent lots in the Virgin Grand Estates luxury gated subdivision made the most sense. While we had the choice of many areas on the island we love the panoramic and beathtaking sunset views we have at Casa De Sonadores. The location has the best of everything. We have fabulous views at our elevation yet we are close to shopping, dining, and all the wonderful beaches of St John.

What makes this villa unique

Unique to Casa De Sonadores is one of the most detailed and luxurious villas on the island. Also unique is the quiet unspoiled sense we have as we look out over some of the most beautiful water and island views I have seen anywhere.

Paradise in St. John

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at your Villa from June 24th through July 1, 2017. From walking in the door to the high end kitchen to the comfortable beds and numerous balconies and outdoor showers we felt we were in paradise! We had a slight issue with running out of water, my husband was luckily home while we were exploring, after one call to Gina she had everything set in motion, water delivered, and we were taken care of immediately! I would highly recommend this home for a memorable stay!

Spectacular home with unbelievable views. Every bedroom has its own private bathroom. Great for 4 couples. The 5th bedroom in the basement was a little disappointing. It was like a cave. All other bedrooms had views and balconies. Loved the sounds of the tree frogs at night. Slept like a baby.

Gorgeous villa, breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Sonadores is not only a beautiful villa inside and out but provides all the amenities one needs while on vacation. The pool is great, and the game/movie room downstairs is an added bonus as well. The air hockey table was put to good use while we were there :) The kitchen is well stocked, beds and linens are super comfy and outdoor showers are just fabulous! We had a great trip but choosing to stay at Sonadores was the icing on the cake!

Casa De Sonadores

  • 5 of 5

3rd time staying in St John. This house was #1. We had 8 of us there for a week. This house is incredible with unbelievable views from the back porch and all of the bedrooms. The place is enormous. The outdoor showers are great and so Caribbean feeling.

The kitchen area is top level with an incredible restaurant level stove.

I will be back there again in 2018..

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time visiting this property and we will continually come back on a regular basis. It is well equipped with all the essentials for 2x families, conveniently located close enough to town and all major beaches, and has spectacular views of the sunset (best enjoyed with a cocktail in hand). Will definitely come back.
