I was born and raised on St. John. As a 5th generation St. Johnian, I am very proud of my heritage and my island home. My wife Ann began teaching on St. John in the early 1970s and retired after 43 years. We have a wealth of knowledge and favorite places to share with our Bluebitch guests to ensure this vacation will be one of your best and most memorable.
We began building our home in 2002 out of bluebitch stone, a native stone quarried on St. John. It's been a "labor of love" and a "dream come true" for us!

Bluebitch is beautiful!! And part of the beauty stems from the amount of love that has been put into the craftmanship of this villa. Private beach has been the pre-bedtime stop every night.
Ten days is not enough.
I was half-tempted to title this review "Whatever you do, DON'T go to Bluebitch!" in a selfish effort to keep it more to myself!
My wife and I traveled to Bluebitch St. John for our honeymoon (she found it here on homeaway.com). The reviews were all very positive, the price was right, and the villa was available at the right time - the Universe was, I think, telling us to go to Bluebitch. The Universe has good taste.
This review is posted in list form, in terms of what is "easy" to do and "hard" to do, at the Bluebitch Villa in particular and on St. John in general.
At BB, it is
EASY to feel at home. The villa is clean and bright, large and comfortable, and full of things that make it feel like a home. The kitchen has full-size appliances; the main living area has room to stretch out; the bedroom is large and has furniture and closets (so you don't live out of a suitcase).
HARD to remember that it's not actually your house. While Ann and Albion live upstairs, it's not as if you are bumping into them all the time (although if you need something, it's easy to just shout!) The villa is very secluded and private, the grounds are lush and green, and the layout of the area is such that you will not see locals or guests from other lodgings. You really feel like you have your own private slice of paradise.
EASY to spend the whole day at the Villa. Stock the fridge with goodies, brew some coffee or blend up some frozen drinks, and spend the day snorkeling at the private beach or reading on the balcony.
HARD to keep track of the day and time. I suggest losing yourself in the rhythm of the waves.
In St. John, it is
EASY to get lost on your first day; the roads are somewhat haphazardly laid out, and of course it's your first day. So set aside a couple of hours and go exploring.
HARD to get lost on your second day; the island isn't that big
EASY to spend a fortune on food and drink; this is an island in the middle of the ocean and it's tough to get all the creature comforts there, so you pay for it
HARD not to take advantage of happy hour to find ways to live on the cheap
Thus I am hesitant to post this review, for fear that Bluebitch St John will be booked for years on end and I won't be able to go back! We can't thank Ann and Albion enough for their hospitality. Our honeymoon was worth every penny.
From our first email and phone contact before our travel, the owners here (Ann and Albion) provided everything we needed, imagined and unimagined. They gave us travel information, Al met us at the ferry and took us to the local market for provisions, helped us with our luggage, then Ann gave us a thorough tour of the lovely property. The photos on the Internet represent the accommodation perfectly... No disappointments there. The villa is immaculately clean with many small touches and supplies that we could possibly need. We used their car and advise for exploration and day trips to make the most of our stay on this beautiful island. Ann and Al were available for help and to answer questions, but were never "heavy handed" respecting our privacy.
We whole heartedly recommend a booking here.
We keep coming back to St. John, Bluebitch and its wonderful owners! The house is only a few minutes away (by car) from downtown Cruz Bay and its restaurants. It's a relatively quick drive to get to the series of public beaches (Hawksnest, Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay). The property is well maintained and clean. It has everything for a comfortable stay (washer, dryer, full kitchen, microwave, etc). The private beach is a treat! One cannot wish for a better customer service. The owners, Ann and Albion, are very quick to response to any concerns/questions. We highly recommend this property!
Everything was pure purefection while staying at this property. This is a property that is a labor of love both inside and out, as the house is gorgeous and the grounds and view are breathtaking. On top of that it was such excellent customer service and care by the owners. This location really is the perfect spot as you watch the sunsets and you are close in driving distance to everything you could need. Our honeymoon was everything we hoped it could be and more, and it would not have been that way without Blue Bitch.
My husband and I were guests at BlueBitch for 9 glorious nights from June 2 to 11th , 2016. The pictures of this beautiful home do not do it justice. We felt like we were living in a tropical paradise. Every corner of BlueBitch was designed and built by the owners with love, using native materials such as the blue rock, coral, shells, and colored glass. The decor and layout of the home is perfect, considering every need of their guests. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony having coffee in the morning, or watching the sunset at night. We also enjoyed the sounds of BlueBitch , boats crossing the channel, birds singing, and sometimes a little steel pan music. Our favorite part of staying at BlueBitch was meeting the owners, Ann and Albion. They are truly the nicest people you'll ever meet.Thanks to Ann we were able to hike to some spots on St.John a little less known, and very special. By the end of our stay, BlueBitch and the special island of St. John, felt like home. Thank you Ann and Albion for making our week in paradise one we will never forget. We hope we can return again soon.
