About Jack O'Rourke

Jack and Mary O'Rourke, after several years of chartering sailboats in the Virgin Islands, discovered Ditleff Point and purchased the first lot. Ditleff was part of the original Laurance Rockefeller estate which has sat idle and protected for 50 years. Mary and Jack decided to build the ultimate vacation home on one of the most stunning locations in the Caribbean.

Jack O'Rourke purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jack O'Rourke chose Point Rendezvous

This lot has incomparable views, water access, tremendous privacy and breezes the year around. St. John is a safe and exclusive Island with all the amenities: good restaurants, shopping, incredible beaches, a very large National Park, and a range of activities available.

What makes this villa unique

The Ditleff Peninsula is gated and the Villa is additionally gated for the ultimate in privacy. There is direct access to the ocean from the Kaleidoscope lot and also access to the large protected Ditleff Point homeowner's private beach for swimming, snorkeling and sun bathing. One can anchor in Ditleff Bay, dingy or swim to the beach and walk on the brick pathway to the road and walk to Kaleidoscope Villa a quarter mile away up a gently sloping paved road.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible and is situated on one of the most beautiful parts of the island. The views are literally breathtaking from every room, from the terrace and the tower. The pool is fantastic, landscaping is lush and beautiful. The home's location puts you in the middle of two beautiful bays, both of which offer great snorkeling. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the island host was attentive and available 24/7 if needed. The included chairs, coolers and beach gear made it so convenient to load up our Jeeps for the day and venture out. I have visited St John multiple times and this is by far the most fantastic villa I've ever seen.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The villa is breathtaking when you enter.

The drive to Ditleff point has some steep hills & tight turns but we had no problem getting to & from the villa. Recommend 4 wheel drive.

LOTS of games at the house.

The kitchen is GREAT to cook in. We appreciated that they have 2 refrigerators PLUS one in the outside bar. They have a separate ice maker which is awesome. Surprised this is the 1st luxury villa we've stayed in that had one!

Lots of snorkel equipment available if you don't want to bring your own.

Fun to watch the stars from the hot tub.

Comfortable beach chairs are provided that are easy to carry to the beach. Easy to get to Maho or the beaches past Coral Bay like Salt Pond & Ram's Head via Highway 104 which is close by & runs across the top of the island. The owners provide complimentary beach bags you can take home as a momento.

We slept great in the comfy beds. There are lots of hangars in the closets which isn't always the case. 3 of the bedrooms have outdoor showers which usually great. The master can be breezy & chilly. The others have less breeze. An indoor shower is available in 1 bedroom. The bedrooms aren't the same size but are well appointed.

The outdoor area by the pool is fantastic when hanging out at the house although it can be too windy for dinner or games.

You can watch turtles in the bay to the left of the villa - especially from the master bedroom patio. We were told the bay is too rough to swim with them.

The sound system is phenomenal. You can connect your own music through Apple TV or through an auxiliary port. There is Dish TV in each room.

Owners are super nice - even sent us a Christmas card prior to our stay!

Jane & Brian are great island hosts & will help answer any questions you have.

Loved that a private beach is a short walk from the house (slightly up hill walk on the way back). There is a pull out where you can park your car. The beach is rocky. You'll want good sandals (or watershoes) when on the beach. There was good snorkeling right or left from the beach. When we went left we saw 2 octopus. There were lots of fish along the rocks on the right. We also saw a big ray swimming along the rocks. We also enjoyed looking for shells on this beach.

Liked watching the cruise ships sail out of St. Thomas after sunset.

I would not suggest this villa for families with small children.

Amazing Views, fabulous warm infinity pool with fab floor plan outdoor space, sweet beach access

  • 5 of 5

The builder/owner thought of every detail. Feels like 'home', spacious, cozy, inviting-stocked with everything you may need or want. From the built in cabinet ice maker to the two sets of laundry facilities and the out door showers, nothing was left out. And then there is the outdoor space, VIEWS -warm infinity pool, and private hot tub, relaxing loung area and turret with amazing views everywhere. And the beaches right at your doorstep....The only thing missing is our name on the deed!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous views! Breathtaking when we entered the villa. We loved the floor plan/layout - so nice that each bedroom is separated from the main living area with no worries of waking anyone or bothering anyone with noise. The outdoor showers - the outdoor showers - the outdoor showers!!!!!! Aaaamazing. This was a once in a lifetime family vacation and this villa exceeded our expectations. Would not recommend this villa for families with small children only because of the height/rocks around the pool area. If you want memorable views, a high quality villa and exceptional service, this is it.

This villa is beyond amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beyond amazing. It is our 3rd time to rent the villa over the past 5 years. It continues to be emaculantly maintained. The view from the property is absolutely breath-taking. St John offers great food and beautiful sights and activities. This trip we choose to spend a little more of our time on property so that we could relax and enjoy the villa amenities more. We grilled out one night and actually ordered in pizza another night. Watching the sunset while sitting at the edge of the infinity pool is pretty awesome. We did an all day boat trip one day for snorkling and island hopping. Our group plans to return once again for a spectacular vacation in a couple of years. You will NOT be disappointed.

Surreal experience, beauty, once in a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The owners and property have more 5-star reviews than any other for good reason.

It would be hard to add anything that hasn't already been said.

The property is, amazingly, even better looking than the fabulous pictures you'll see online. Then there are the little details - the deck and infinity pool are oriented south towards maximum sunlight. When you make your way from one enclosure to the next, especially at night, you'll notice a wonderful ocean breeze rolls through, and it is bug free! You can't describe a morning staring out over the bay from the master bedroom watching sea turtles, or looking out from the outlook at your kids in the infinity pool below, while iridescent hummingbirds flicker through vibrant foliage behind you. The pair of kestrels that share the home with you. Watching cruise ships on the horizon at night. You can walk the whole gated point yourself with a private beach. And it is a 5-10 minute drive into town. Of course, the island host was a treat and the owners accommodated the small window for the stay we had requested with great ease. Thank you, Jack!

We stayed as a family of four with two young children who could have spent the whole vacation at the villa.
