About the property

4 bedroom 4 1/2 bath plus loft. Sleeps up to 8 adults and 2 children.

Affordable 4 bedroom Beach Walk Villa is located on one of St John’s most spectacular tropical reefs. Sleeps up to 10 guests if 2 children use the loft. Priced according to the number of guests, we will only rent to one group on the property at a time whether you have just two or up to ten people. Couples or teens using the lower level (we call it Aussie) have their own mini suite complete with second kitchen, living area, two bedrooms and two baths. The main upper level has two bedrooms, two and one half baths, and a fabulous Great Room surrounded by glass to let in the spectacular all around view. Open the screened large glass windows to hear the sound of the surf that you will never forget.

The fun really begins outside at Beach Walk. Our calm crystal clear water offers some of the best swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking on St John. We provide you with snorkel and mask and kayaks free of charge. You can swim, snorkel, kayak, or hike over to the beach at Chocolate Hole. We prefer to snorkel because the reef is teeming with beautiful, colorful sea life that you will not want to miss. The kids love searching for shells and hermit crabs along our shore. Relax in the hammock at the water’s edge and listen to the sounds of the Bay.

About John and Vicky Daly

We are John and Vicky and are veterinarians in Virginia. We honeymooned on St John at Caneel in 1993 and have now returned over 100 times. We love to sail, snorkel, and listen to the sea breeze and surf just outside our panoramic windows at Beach Walk. Our daughter and dog also love Beach Walk. Especially exploring all the coral along the shore, finding hermit crabs, and spotting iguanas in the trees.

John and Vicky Daly purchased this villa in 2005

Why John and Vicky Daly chose Cruz Bay

One of St John's best locations due to being located adjacent to a magnificent Tropical Reef. Very convenient to groceries, shopping, restaurants, Cruz Bay, and the north shore beaches.

What makes this villa unique

Kayaks and Snorkel gear free of charge. Beach Walk is a rare find being located on some of St John's most beautiful waters. Swim and snorkel and kayak without always having to drive somewhere. The sounds and sights are remarkable at our waterside villa. The best pool on St John is our tropical reef right outside your door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The villa is adorable and the a/c was wonderful but not needed at night, great during the day though. I loved how cozy this villa is, I also love being right on the water. I can see why you do love this villa so much.

In addition to the view I LOVED the wildlife, the salt pond is amazing. If you go out there at night with a flash light you can see hundreds of little shrimp and their eyes glow, it is the coolest thing I've ever seen. (yep, nature/animal geek on board) There were also all types of weird fish and crabs to be seen too. I never knew there was so much life in those salt ponds. Unbelievable... I loved it.

I also loved the iguanas and set up a little feeding time each day around 9 a.m. I have the coolest pictures and they really loved the oranges and bananas we put out for them. Again, the nature geek in me couldn't get enough of it and I enjoyed that as much as the view. Do me a favor and drop a banana or two for my little scaly friends next time your there. They were so neat to watch and really looked forward to their little meal.

Great spot in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Beachwalk. Both the owner and the local manager were extremely accommodating and the villa was clean and well equipped. The location of the villa is extraordinary, completely surrounded by water. Unlike many villas, there was plenty to do on site-kayak, snorkel, hike and lounge. Although the place is fully air conditioned, we kept the windows open to enjoy the breeze and listened to the waves lap against the shore. The drive to the villa is probably the easiest of all villas we have stayed at on St John. In short, Beachwalk is a great villa!!

Beach Hole Rental St John's

  • 4 of 5

we were escorted to the house in our rented Jeep. The House was clean and well stocked with items required for a beach stay. Steve and Lisa toured the house with us an explained all the important items. The driveway requires a skilled driver. The driveway patch appears to not be a legal rode. Driving on the Island can present challenges with driving on the left, hairpin turns and impatient St. John drivers. All in all we had a wonderful time despite this. There were an excessive amount of lights and it was a challenge to commit so many to memory. The cable/wifi/phone worked intermittently. Many of the doors had fingerprints. The ceiling fans were long over due for cleaning.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

Beach Walk & Aussie Villa (daylight basement and upper floors of this location) are one of three Villas we rented for our wedding on St John. The owner and property manager were wonderful to work with, the accommodations are very comfortable and the home offers a perfect place for laid back island enjoyment. I've been on island every year for 15 years and highly recommend this home.

Sweet location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our second trip to St John..this time we brought first timers down with us. My best friend and her husband...we all loved the house! Wonderful location...amazing snorkeling right off of the rocky beach area. House was comfortable with nice decor. Great amenities and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great hospitality from the owner. Hot tub did not work during our stay but wasn't a huge deal for us-- we attempted to heat it up but it was a no go. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend for future!

A great family house

  • 4 of 5

We came as an extended family of 7. One of our young adult children said "It's the best vacation I've ever had" Obviously the beaches and sights of St John are quite lovely but the evening dinners looking out at a Caribbean sunset with all of us enjoying each other's company is priceless. The house lends itself to readily to family groups. It is easy , casual, relaxed and comfortable -

Once the kids left after a week we had the place to ourselves and I was able to use the downstairs unit as a writing studio for an important project I'm working on.

It turned out great for my needs -quiet and cool and offered the solitude I needed

The owner provided great service through his property manager who, in fact, responded almost immediately to our request for more wine glasses. Our favorite beach was Salt Pond in Coral Bay - near by is Miss Lucy's seaside restaurant a must place to go for inexpensive drinks and great food . The baby goats like to mingle with the guests!

Great Location and Lovely View!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying right on the water, enjoying the kayaks and snorkeling just steps away. The home had everything that we needed to cook meals in, or just a few minutes drive to Cruz Bay, where the restaurant choices were abundant. We love the peaceful neighborhood and will definitely choose this home for our next St. John trip!

Fun is the best way to describe Beach Walk. Sleeping up to ten with 4 bedrooms and sleep loft. Your kayaks and snorkel gear are on site and you'll want to get into that water just steps away every day. Get out for a nap in the hammock and listen to the surf. Count the types of fish and coral you see in our reef at Beach Walk. The water is crystal clear and refreshing. The very best pool on St John is the ocean itself at Beach Walk Villa.

St. John is famous for its natural unspoiled beauty. Beach Walk displays St. John at its finest, being located 20 feet from the clear beautiful waters of Chocolate Hole. Beach Walk is conveniently located only 5 minutes from the quaint town of Cruz Bay with its great shopping and restaurants. Also nearby is St. John national park and all the famous white sand beaches including Trunk Bay, Hawks Nest, Maho, and Francis.
