Overview

Contant & Contant Farms House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Villa Rhapsody St. John is a beautiful and very special 5BR / 5.5 bath luxury vacation villa located on the western shores of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. It is set in truly spectacular & magnificent tropical surroundings. Villa Rhapsody St. John is a newly constructed villa as of June 2008.

Villa Rhapsody is truly a Caribbean estate in its size, spaciousness, and privacy. As you enter Villa Rhapsody, its magnitude is as breathtaking as its majesty. Located on a 1/2 acre lot immediately adjacent to the ocean, a 16' x 32' spectacular infinity pool & immense pool deck command center stage.

The Great House, and various living pods surrounding the infinity pool. The hot tub, looking out towards the beautiful Caribbean sits poolside.

Unlike most St. John villas that are located high on the hills with distant ocean views, Villa Rhapsody St. John floats directly over the spectacular turquoise Caribbean - the ocean literally 50 feet below.

By day, your view of yachts & sailing vessels of all sizes traveling from Cruz Bay to Great Cruz Bay and St. Thomas is soothing. By evening, the fiery sunsets over the infinity pool with the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance is majestic. The eternal sound of the surging ocean below you is your romantic soundtrack.

This magnificent 5BR/5.5 bath villa sleeps up to 10 adults, plus additional bedding for an additional 4 children sleeps a total of 14 (10 adults + 4 children). In the Rhapsody St. John Great Room is a spacious living area, dining area, chef's kitchen, and small office area with high speed DSL.

A state-of-the-art entertainment center & sound system with large screen HDTV is enjoyed in the Great Room area.

Outside of the Great Room is the breathtaking Rhapsody St. John lanai. This exterior living area is Caribbean living at its best. Oceanfront & looking out towards St. Thomas & St. James islands, day or night, the views are grand.

Whether for a romantic hideaway, or a festive special occasion, Villa Rhapsody St. John offers the spaciousness of a Caribbean estate with ultra luxury accommodations, a magnificent and romantic infinity pool and deck, a superb private setting - all floating above the turquoise Caribbean with the never ending surround sound of the ocean directly below you.

Why Richard Matheny chose Cruz Bay

Photo is of Richard Matheny, President of Suite St. John Villas Management, property managers for Villa Rhapsody St. John. Richard Matheny has managed Rhapsody St. John since it was built in 2008. The location puts Rhapsody very close to the water, providing wonderful views. You can also hear the ocean and Cruz Bay is just a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

The Infinity Edge pool provides breathtaking views with the ocean right in front of you. Villa Rhapsody St. John is a Caribbean villa as a work of art. The attention to detail in every aspect of construction and design makes the villa extremely pleasing to the eye, setting just the right mood for St. John.

The villa was amazing. Everything you see in the pictures is what you receive. Unbelievably we were still shocked and surprised when we arrived on how beautiful it was. Perfect location, perfect villa, perfect weather, best vacation ever. We will surely go back. Pool is essential in 90degree weather. So awesome. Wish I was still there.

Perfect Luxury Vacation Property - look no further!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rhapsody exceeded our expectations in every way. The views are expansive and beautiful, and can not truly be captured in photos. The location is ideal. It's just a short drive to downtown St. John yet located atop a small cliff to ensure total privacy.

The villa itself is beautiful. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and the other living spaces were comfortable and very well equipped (not to mention the outdoor sound system). Every bedroom has an ocean view! The infinity pool and the Jacuzzi are also beautiful. Tons of outdoor tables, dining areas, outdoor sofas, and deck chairs to enjoy the amazing unobstructed views of the water and neighboring islands.

Before venturing off property to snorkel at one of the local beaches, we were quite pleased to find a cache of snorkeling gear, beach chairs, blankets, towels, umbrellas, coolers, kids toys, and more.

The staff at the villa were great too! Both Richard and the on-site property manager, Tommy, could not have been more accommodating. From arranging our car rental to advising on top restaurants and a private chef. They thought of everything and were always available to assist with any of our needs.

The villa is great for a romantic getaway or large groups. We had such a great and relaxing time. Villa Rhapsody is truly an amazing place. We look forward to going back to as soon as possible.

This place was fabulous! We liked that there was no foliage beyond the pool -- cuts down on mosquitos. And it was beautiful to sit in the pool at the negative edge and watch the sun set on St. Thomas with nothing obstructing your view. It was as if you were on an anchored boat watching it. Also loved the layout of the bedrooms. Each bedroom had it's own private access so as to not disturb anyone else, and gives you breathing room. There was no expense spared when building this villa. Also loved that there were 2 washers & dryers (one was a stackable, but better than having just one set!). Would have liked king sized beds in each bedroom, though. The kitchen was well appointed with a separate room with the stackable w&d, safe, counter top & sink, and 2nd refrigerator! So great! Huge deck area around pool. Also nice to have covered walking area behind the pool. Separate shower & toilet out by pool; huge linen closet next to it. Beach towels provided which was terrific! Also had 2 coolers for our use. Thanks for letting us 'borrow' your house!
