Overview

About the property

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

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 Cruz Bay

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.

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..

Exquisite Property, View, and Management Team

  • 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.

AMAZING ST. JOHN HOME IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples travelling, and were pleasantly surprised when we reached our destination in St. John - Casa de Sonodores. It is a nice, spacious home that is in a great location with a wonderful view. It was so nice to have all the bedrooms with king size beds and indoor/outdoor showers. We enjoyed the refreshing pool and outside deck areas - very relaxing. The home was well equipped with little extras, and we were all very comfortable. The booking process was very easy, and the owner was very responsive. We would consider this home on a future trip.

Another Stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Casa de Sonadores and we have enjoyed everything about it. This will not be our last time either, we will be back. It has a beautiful view of St. Thomas and this year we woke up to see the Super moon setting over St. Thomas. The villa has everything you could want or need. The pool is right outside the living room and overlooks Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. It offers a Modern Kitchen with all quality appliances, Spacious Living room and Dining area, each of the 4 king bedded rooms has outdoor showers which are great, Air Conditioning in all rooms, modern TV’s with cable in all rooms and Internet. As a bonus there is a downstairs entertainment room with TV and theater seating, Pool Table, Air Hockey table and old style Video Game. The Villa is located close to Cruz Bay (2 miles) and it is also very easy to get to the North Shore beaches or any place on the other side of the island. The villa is also gated and very private with the trees and foliage and the normal sounds of the night surrounding the property. We also used the outdoor grill to cook steaks two times. We have stayed several times at properties of the owner of Casa de Sonadores and have always had fabulous service from them. Looking forward to staying here again sometime soon. We are a party of three couples who travel together.

Fabulous Stay with 4 adults 5 kids (ages 5 to 9)

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful! Perfect location. Perfect view of St. Thomas. We really loved every part of it. The pool is great. The kitchen had everything we needed. The linens and towels were nice. My bed was very comfortable. Was only buggy when the kids left the balcony doors open in their room. The 5 kids loved the playroom - the 4 adults liked that the playroom was separate from the main portion of the house!

Each bedroom has a King sized bed and its own bathroom - which makes it the perfect house for 4 couples. The bedroom and bathroom doors are not solid doors they are made of slats. It wasn't a problem but I prefer more privacy from both sides of the door than that. 3 bedrooms are on the second floor and one is on the main floor. (There is another bedroom with a murphy bed off the playroom which does not have a door to the main house. It is not equivalent to the other 4 bedrooms at all.) Two of the bedrooms have an indoor shower and an outdoor shower. The other two have just an outdoor shower. I LOVED the outdoor shower.

The house is environmentally friendly with timers on the lights and the a/c. So, if you want the lights or a/c on you have to set a dial. We thought that aspect was great until we went to bed the first night and the a\c in our rooms clicked off after 6 hours (max setting). I generally like to sleep much longer than 6 hours and the room got uncomfortable. It wasn't a big deal just found myself jumping out of bed whenever I woke up in the middle of the night to walk around to the kids rooms to turn the knob so they didn't get hot and wake up early.

The music system was nice. I didn't watch one second of tv the entire time I was there so I can't comment on that. But there were tvs in every bedroom, living room and the playroom. The playroom has a bathroom, a bedroom, an air hockey table, pool table and an old school video game thing. There were also lots of comfy looking recliners down there. Beach chairs, snorkel gear for adults, a cooler, pool floats, beach towels for 8 people, extra sheets, a roll of paper towels, more toilet paper than you will be able to use, some laundry detergent, dish soap, garbage bags, a few seasonings, sugar and olive oil were there as well. Coffee pot filters too.

The management company, Sol Villas, sent Henry (or Enry as we've been calling him) to greet us and take care of a faulty smoke detector at one point. He was fabulous.

I'm very happy and will definitely be back!

Beautiful home, fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our adult children and their significant others. The owner, John, was very responsive to my initial inquiry and follow up questions. We were greeted in St. John ferry dock by property manager, Henry, Henry was very kind, friendly and helpful. They did a great job in stocking our requested provisions. We felt very comfortable from the first time we met him. The home is gorgeous, with beautiful views of the surrounding islands. we spent our mornings on the patio having breakfast and several dinners outsider as well. Felt very safe on the island, with mostly very friendly islanders. a car is a must to get around in St. John ( we rented 2 jeeps at thrifty car rental in st Thomas and took car ferry across; fairly easy) . Home is equipped well with stereos in and outside, tv, kitchen appliances and plenty of dishware. My entire family said this was our best vacation ever. We will definitely be back.
