Why Deborah Visalli chose St John

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!

Villa Capiz was everything we hoped it would be. The views are breathtaking from all over the house. The bedrooms were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the living area was very nice. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck and relaxing around the pool in the afternoon after swimming with the turtles at Maho Bay. The girls appreciated the wi-fi. We hope to return soon! Just remember...keep left😀

Paradise with a view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Capiz. We loved the layout of the home, the fabulous pool and hot tub, and the privacy offered by the tropical landscaping and driveway gate. The panoramic views of neighboring islands were spectacular so we spent hours on the porch and around the pool morning and night. Debbie was so helpful when I had questions before the trip and always responded to my emails quickly. Additionally, Peter and Gail were also helpful with pre-arrival information as well as welcoming us to St. John and making us feel at home at Villa Capiz. We will cherish the memories from our trip forever! I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a peaceful week in paradise with all of the amenities.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Capiz with my brother and his family. The house was amazing! The views, the pool, the outdoor space, the home itself - all perfect!! We cooked several nights and the kitchen was well equipped. There is a grill on the upper deck that we used for grilling. All the rooms were comfortable and welcoming. The view of Cruz Bay is magnificent - loved sitting on the deck. The view never got old. Sunsets were amazing! Thank you for having such an perfect home! Hope to be back!!!

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long stay at Villa Capiz with my fiance, sister and brother-in-law. We could not have asked for a better experience in St. John-the island is absolutely beautiful-the best snorkeling and hiking around! Villa Capiz exceeded all of our expectations, from the moment we were first messaging with the owners until arrival on the island everything was friendly, informative and a breeze. The on-island property managers were a great source of information and made themselves available for all questions or concerns during our stay! Not surprisingly, we had no concerns-the house is so comfortable, has incredible views and a well stocked kitchen. It also has coolers and beach chairs which were wonderful! Cannot thank you enough for a beautiful stay in St. John. We hope to be back again someday!

Paradise at Villa Capiz

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Villa Capiz could not have been better. The property is very clean and well maintained. The views at all times day or night are amazing. The owner and property manager were both very helpful. Any questions we had about planning our trip or activities we were interested in were always answered promptly. The guest book with beach descriptions was especially helpful. We took a picture of the descriptions so we could follow the directions to the best snorkel spots at the various beaches. Very accurate and helpful. We went to as many different beaches as we could during our stay. All the beaches are amazingly beautiful. Our favorite restraurant was Asolare. The best bartender and waitress we have ever had anywhere!! The food was delicious and the views were outstanding. Thank you Debbie for our awesome stay at Villa Capiz!!

Highly recommend Villa Capiz!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned (early May) from celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on our favorite island and in our favorite home on St. John. This was our sixth stay at Villa Capiz and it truly is a place that makes us feel like we are part of St. John while also feeling like home. From the moment you arrive at the gated entrance, Villa Capiz gives you everything you are looking for on your stay in the islands. The views from the living area, pool, and decks are incredible. You are surrounded by tropical gardens and have complete privacy while enjoying the pool, hot tub, outdoor grill and views. There are days we don't leave the property because of everything Villa Capiz offers but when we do, Cruz Bay, restaurants and the many beautiful beaches are all within a 10-15 minute drive. Another advantage of Villa Capiz is that it is great for families or couples. The bedrooms are set up where up to three couple can enjoy complete privacy. Our previous stays have been with our two children and we still had extra room. For our anniversary trip this year, we can also verify Villa Capiz is perfect for just two!

The owner is great to work with and Peter and Gail (local property managers) are the best. From the time you meet them, you realize you have friends on the island. One last comment,,,, on your first afternoon/evening at Villa Capiz, put your favorite music on (great outdoor speakers), fix your favorite drink, enjoy the views and watch the sunset over St. Thomas. You will then realize you are truly in paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all your reflections and descriptions of Villa Capiz and Peter and Gail! Our sentiments exactly! You suggest the perfect way to begin one's holiday, relaxing and watching the sunset from the decks.We also agree that the property works beautifully as a romantic getaway for 2 people without feeling too expansive, and also works great for 2 couples, with 2 master bedroom suites, and also for families, including small children. We are truly delighted that you enjoyed yet another vacation at Villa Capiz and hope to host you again soon at your "home away from home"! Cheers!

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.
