Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 2-16)

540/848-0049 One of Villa St. John’s most unique features is that all of the six bedrooms are 650 square foot master suites (the largest on the island), each with their own 2 person jacuzzi, walk-in closets, coffee maker, refrigerator, and balcony, offering panoramic views of Chocolate Bay, the Caribbean and a picturesque inlet that accommodates spectacular yachts, a pristine beach and the rhythmic sound of lapping waves of crystal clear water from the Caribbean.

Enjoy a dip in the warm, clear turquoise sea of the villa’s private, white sand beach or swim in the crystal water of the villa’s swimming pool, its deck splashed with casual outdoor furniture for sunbathing or entertaining.

Come and enjoy this one of a kind, palatial, Mediterranean-style retreat, perched on a beautifully landscaped bluff overlooking a secluded bay on the island paradise of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

A dream come true, this stunning villa welcomes you with gentle tropical breezes, warm and delicious sunlight to bathe in, sweet floral scents of the tropics and the soothing music of waves caressing the white-sand beach below. Villa St. John is one of only a few beachfront villas on this exclusive eight mile stretch of utopia.

Stunning, warm and welcoming, the grand villa is comprised of four bedroom suites and the honeymoon villa of two bedroom suites. Both the grand and honeymoon villas have their own living and dining room areas and newly renovated kitchens with rich mahogany cabinetry and graphite counter tops.

About Kim Ellsworth-Evans

We were married on St John and go back every year to celebrate our anniversary. We love to host rum tastings and have gotten to know some of the rum experts on the island. We have three daughters, two out of college and a 14 year old. She has grown up spending summers and weeks on St John.

Kim Ellsworth-Evans purchased this villa in 2004

Why Kim Ellsworth-Evans chose Cruz Bay

Chocolate Hole Bay is so private. I enjoy sitting on the deck with a good book, listening to the sound of the waves, and of course swimming in our pool. Since we are southern exposure the pool is quite warm! When I get tired of the pool, I meander down the steps to the beach and look for sea glass, or snorkel in Chocolate Hole Bay.

What makes this villa unique

The direct access to the beach is what sold me on the house. We went swimming in Chocolate Hole Bay one morning and as I looked up and realized I could be at the beach in 42 steps, I was sold.

Beautiful Views, Big house with Great Bones.

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfectly arranged for multiple couples with 6 private guest bedrooms all with views. The location is excellent for sunset cocktails. Great for entertaining. The owner couldn't be more helpful. Also conveniently located near town. It just needs some regular drinking glasses for the kitchen and wine glasses (primarily stocked with plastic glasses). It would also be nice to update the living room furniture, the leather couches are dated. Otherwise a 5 star villa, overall an excellent stay and highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. I have ordered more regular drinking glasses and more wine glasses. I replace wine glasses four times a year but they are the first thing broken. New living room furniture has been ordered, but that will take months to arrive.

Stunning pool, room for 6 couples plus kids

  • 5 of 5

The Villa's great room was perfect for entertaining while allowing for introverts like myself to escape to the sanctuary of one of the six master suites. Going into our time on island I was concerned about the number of guests we'd be hosting but the Villa handled 60+ party goers with ease. I highly recommend spending your time in paradise at this Villa and look forward to many future stays.

St John's finest

  • 5 of 5

Got to stay at Villa St John for two glorious weeks. Great space for group activities, like the gazebo by the pool and the kitchen/dining/living room combo. Also the bedrooms are large and each as it's own bath. There was refrigerator in our room so we could keep things there as needed rather than in the main kitchen refrigerator. There was also space for a blow up bed to add to the flexibilty. Every detail was covered,

Highly recommend

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

My son was recently married on St. John and we stayed at Villa St. John for two glorious weeks. The villa is lovely, comfortable, spacious and well managed. It truly is a little piece of heaven. We hosted a catered dinner for 65 people, and it worked just great. The kitchen is well laid out for multiple cooks to be working at once and well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. There was obviously a great deal of thought put into layout and furnishings that make it easy for 12+ people to share the space. The pool is great and having the beach just a few steps away is an added bonus. Many in our group enjoyed snorkeling right off the villa in Chocolate Hole. The stunning views from each bedroom and from the decks and pool area are a balm to the soul. I would highly recommend Villa St. John for a magical vacation experience.

Enjoy the sunset over St. Thomas as you sit in the jacuzzi, have cocktails on the deck of the outdoor dining area, or relax on your room’s private balcony, all of which provide the perfect setting to watch the sun sink below the horizon over the sparkling bay and the blue-green Caribbean, or rise to announce a spectacular new day in paradise at dawn.

The villa complex is ideal for weddings, reunions, family get-togethers, a romantic island escape, honeymoons or for simply relaxing island-style and is the perfect launch for island adventures such as kayaking, hiking, shopping in Cruz Bay, snorkeling, scuba diving or deep-sea fishing.
