More on St. John: St. John, the smallest and most idyllic of the three United States Virgin Islands, is best known for its many post card perfect white sand beaches, turquoise bays abounding in colorful corals and rainbows of tropical fish and endless vistas of lush green hills. Only nine miles long and four miles wide, two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park, so its spectacular beaches and untouched forests will remain that way for generations to come and be accessible to all. There are tours of the National Park by Jeep or safari bus and hikes on spectacular trails led by Park Rangers who enrich the experience with talks on the island's history and geology. Only twenty minutes from St. Thomas by convenient hourly ferry, St. John is the peaceful, uncommercialized paradise island. It has no high-rise buildings, cruise ship docks or Airports.

Frank Fazenbaker purchased this villa in 2013

Why Frank Fazenbaker chose St John

We vacationed in St. John many years ago and fell in love with the island. The beaches are the best and so many of them to choose from. The island is very friendly with great restaurants. You can just relax or stay on the go with lots of things to do.

Location!! Location!! The last thing you want to do is drive to the other end of the island after a long day at the beach or if you need to do shopping , etc.

What makes this villa unique

We love to spend time at the beaches and snorkel. And you can just relax at the villa and enjoy the outdoor living poolside with some of the best views and sunsets on St. John. We also enjoy going downtown and the east end of the island is great. The location is great, you are 5 min. from town and the beaches , but very private. Villa Serendipity is located in a very up scale area with a lot of space between other estate villas.

Our guests services include provisioning for charter boat reservations, day spa appointments,catering arrangements and dinner reservations or even your own chef.

Villa Serendipity was perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to St. John nearly every year for the past 20 years. Although we loved every villa we stayed at, we've always wanted to try a different one always looking for a better location and one to fit our growning family.

Villa Serendipity was perfect in every way. Lots of privacy with each bedroom having its own full bath. Kitchen had everything we could have possibly needed, outdoor bar and pool area had the afternoon sun which we had lacked at other villas. Location to town was ideal, just a 5 minute drive. View was incrediable with a lovely sunset. Villa Serendipity was ideal for myself, husband, adult children and 20 month old grandson! Looking forward to go back again!

Perfect Villa for Multiple Families

  • 5 of 5

-->Although it was the first trip to St. John for our family of three, we traveled with two other families of three who had been there numerous times as well as one other couple. The house suited our needs perfectly with plenty of social areas in the breezeway and at the bar by the pool. The house had everything we needed for our weeks stay including beach chairs and a cooler.

I made a video of our adventures in the house and around St. John and Jost Van Dyke that can be viewed on YouTube by clicking here: http://bit.ly/1QfKFnl

I would definitely recommend this villa (that we saw on House Hunters International) in St. John!

Great Villa and stay.

  • 5 of 5

The location is close to town and markets. Views incredible. Loved how the villa is laid out. Each bedroom with a private bathroom. Kitchen is very well stocked. Lots of spices, etc. left by other guests so don't buy before you see what's there. Outdoor bar area is great. Loved the extra fridge there as well as the ice maker. Always had ice and plenty of fridge space for drinks between all the fridges. Rooms stocked well with plenty of towels, extra sheets and blankets. Internet and all TV's worked well. Gas grill handy and easy to use. Accommodated large meals well. parking easy for 3 jeeps. Pool nice and refreshing. The only downside is the poor road condition up to the actual house. It's broken pavement, large ruts and not possible for 2 cars to pass at the same time. Someone will have to back up or down around a curve. It was bad enough that the 3 nights we went out, we called cabs rather than drive that at night in the dark. Cimmeron was great to work with. Would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad your family and friends enjoyed your stay at Villa Serendipity. Thank you for your kind words and hope you will join our long list of returning guests. The road going to the villa is being worked on and will be completed soon. Seems like they are always working on the roads on St John. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Our first trip to St. John was amazing! This was a long awaited vacation with 4 other couples, altho' one couple was unable to go, at the last minute. Serendipity proved to be a perfect choice for our group! Beautiful decor, wonderfully large and fully equipped kitchen, large dining areas, both indoor and out, pool and an amazing balcony view down on the cove at Chocolate Hole and out to St. Thomas. Great place to relax after a full day of snorkeling and exploring this beautiful island. Both the beaches and the roads of St. John are breathtaking! The coves of tranquil turquoise seas, rimmed in fine white sand supplied us with endless postcard perfect photos of our mornings at the beach, while our treks over the mountainous roads provided more thrills than any theme park roller coaster. St. John is definitely on our list for a return trip!

Perfect Anniversary Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a 5 days trip to St. John for our 2nd anniversary and could not have asked for a better house to stay in! At first we thought a 5 bedroom house would be too large for the 2 of us, but the privacy was perfect. The kitchen was a great size, the master was lovely and the master bathroom was HUGE! Also, the view from the master when you wake up in the morning was amazing, the pictures do not do it justice. Working with the owner was so easy, I have stayed in VRBO homes before, but I couldn't believe how fast he got back to me with every question that I had (from places to eat, the best beaches and a rental car). I can't wait to book another trip, not soon enough!
