Why Deborah Visalli chose Cruz Bay

After traveling the world we settled on St. John because of its unsurpassed beauty. Villa Capiz took our breath away and it was love at first sight.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I desperately needed to get away and unplug. Villa Capiz has been the perfect oasis for us. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. It's simply awesome. Your attention to every little detail did not go unnoticed nor unappreciated-inside and out! This was our first trip to St. John and God-willing not our last! Thank you again for all the TLC you've put into your home. We'll be back! P.S. OMG What a view!

Having spent many months at a time at Villa Capiz while our children attended school on St. John in the winter, we added personal touches to the home not normally found in a rental property. Artwork, landscaping, and attention to detail make this villa welcoming. It is very private and yet is close to town and beaches. Also available are ipod docking stations.

Fantastic place to vacation and get away!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Capiz was perfect for our family spring break - we can't wait to go back! The house and gardens are beautiful and they have everything you need there. So relaxing with the pool & hot tub, and the decks have fantastic views of St. Thomas/surrounding islands. Loved going to the different beaches for the day and then going back to the awesome pool later in the day. House feels so spacious, yet private. Highly recommend Villa Capiz!

Stunning sunsets and unbelievable views

  • 5 of 5

This hilltop villa offers up spectacular views, unbelievable sunsets, and peaceful gardens providing privacy and solitude. We enjoyed wondering the gardens enjoying the diversity of plants and artwork.

Attention to detail is on display throughout. The craftsmenship, woodworking, and diverse artwork make the setting.

The bedrooms are large and comfortable with private bathrooms and beautiful views of gardens and islands.

The gourmet kitchen is large and well stocked for those group dinners.

We explored a different beach everyday all within a short drive. Stunning white sand beaches, warm water, outstanding world class snorkeling on safe calm beaches was our favorite activity.

Finishing our day sitting poolside enjoying the view of St Thomas and cooling off with a swim in the villa pool.

We loved the feeling of a family home, welcoming and safe.

The setting is spectacular, and we recommend that if you visit St John , plan a stay at the Villa Capiz.

The villa was just as described!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great. A really neat place to stay. The villa has an Asian flare. We loved the beautifully carved wooden doors. Plenty of towels, trash bags, dishwasher soap, beach towels.....having those little things really helps! The boys loved the floats at the pool and we cooked out several times on the grill. We even hopped in the hot tub a few times. We went to a different beach each day and had a great time! Will definitely be back! Thank you so much Debbie for sharing your lovely place, and many thanks to Gail & Peter for all your help and info!

Tranquil Vibes at this Tropical Zen Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The moment we entered the leafy tropical grounds of Villa Capiz, I knew we were in for a treat in paradise. Tucked into the lush landscaping were eastern style stone statues, welcoming us home and leading up and over a footbridge to the deck.

Morning yoga on the deck rewarded us with epic views of the teal ocean framed by palms and tropical vegetation sprouting everywhere. From above, we discovered iguanas basking lazily in the tops of trees, bright yellow bananaquits flitting about, red throated finches, and jewel toned hummingbirds flashing iridescence in the sunlight. It’s clear that the eco-conscious owners’ earth-friendly landscaping techniques have worked beautifully, just ask the birds!

Opening to the deck, gorgeous handmade wooden doors inlaid with soft pink capiz shells give Villa Capiz it’s name. The doors provide cool shade from the afternoon sun, or slide open to reveal an ocean view from the kitchen, where you stand preparing your next fruity beverage. The Capiz doors aren’t the only beautiful wood pieces here, you will find intricate wood carvings on many doors and furniture pieces throughout the home. There’s an artistic detail in every nook and cranny waiting to be discovered.

Lots of outdoor seating areas invite you to enjoy in the views, and we loved lounging by the pool, playing tunes on the outdoor speakers.

Each evening, we soaked in the hot tub and watched incredible island sunsets and moonrises— hands down THE BEST hot tub view I have ever enjoyed. The views were out of this world from our private perch on the hillside, overlooking the sparkling lights on St. Thomas in the distance, and the expansive Caribbean Sea dotted with tropical islands beyond.

Of course, St. John has some other pretty beautiful sights to see (world class white sand beaches, turquoise waters, rainbow tropical reef fish, sea turtles, coral reefs, palm trees blowing in the breeze)…all easily accessible from Villa Capiz. Tropical paradise? Absolutely!

Easy, breezy, beautiful Villa Capiz!
