Rendezvous & Ditleff Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Nestled amongst lush tropical foliage and the glorious ocean hillsides of St. John, your island paradise awaits. Upon entering the Villa, you will be captivated by the spacious great room with its high ceiling and spectacular panoramic view of the Caribbean. Just beyond expansive sliding glass doors, visitors may bask on the large upper-level balcony patio, or relax in the pool.

Villa Rendezvous is an extraordinary waterfront home with air conditioning throughout and direct access to snorkeling from the property. The great room opens onto a large pool deck and oversized pool via a series of sliding glass doors. These doors can be completely recessed, so you can seamlessly enjoy both indoor and outdoor living space. This is the ultimate in Caribbean style living.

With stylish decor throughout, a gorgeous upscale kitchen, cable TV in every bedroom suite, and interior access to all four bedrooms (two bedrooms per level), there are few other villas that can compare for the value. Each master bedroom is tastefully and luxuriously appointed in themed decor and has its own fully enclosed bath. Rooms are accessible from within the Villa or by using the outdoor illuminated walkways, and a new modern kitchen is perfect for entertaining at the villa.

The lush flat lawn, high-speed wireless Internet access, and a stairs to the water's edge are a few of the many added surprises you can expect at Villa Rendezvous. Children welcome!!

About Kurt Shore

We, (Kurt, Suzanne, 13-year old Kory, and 7-year old Alek) hail from the suburbs of Philadelphia. We own D4 Creative, an advertising agency (that Suzanne founded in 1990), and try to spend at least one month a year in our paradise villa. Suzanne spent many months completely renovating the villa, and you'll relish living in a home that combines elegance with comfort. Kurt, by the way, was a record producer in a previous life, and is now the chief creative officer and president of the agency. Kory is already writing his own songs, loves to snowboard and surf. Alek is a charming, funny, and rough and tumble kid, loves to play anything. We invite everyone to share this incredible place with us. St. John is simply magical!

Kurt Shore purchased this villa in 2000

Why Kurt Shore chose Cruz Bay

As we already said, St. John is really paradise. You quickly realize that you can truly unplug from the world, and relax and enjoy the simple things in life, pay more attention to your kids, family, loved ones...

What makes this villa unique

St. John is a small island, (28 miles in perimeter), with a beauty all of it's own. Our property is ideally located to enjoy the whole island easily. Or you can simply stay at the villa. Beautiful vistas of the Caribbean Ocean are seen from every room in the house. We have one of the largest swimming pools on the island, and there is beach access about 100 yards from our home for all the villas to enjoy. (Be careful, wear swim shoes to avoid the sea urchins- big ouch.)

Slice of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to St. John as always was exceptional. This home is perched next to the ocean with a nice view and close the Cruz Bay. Home is appointed very well with interesting decor and very comfortable beds. The bedrooms provide privacy for all as they are situated in the corners on the top and bottom levels. The salt water pool was great and always clean. Kitchen works well for large groups. We used the outside steps to access the bottom bedrooms as the spiral staircases down to these bedrooms are tight and noisy for those that are already sleeping or sleeping in. I would highly recommend this property to anyone whom is looking for a home to rent on the island of St. John. One last comment; the management company response and solutions were fantastic.

Great location, clean, great living space and view!

  • 5 of 5

Everything went so smoothly with our rental, it was a great experience! Nyiesha, our greeter, was very easy to find when we arrived and did a great job introducing us to the home and giving some local recommendations. The accommodations were extremely clean and beautiful (spectacular view) and the location was great. Thanks Kurt for answering all my questions promptly and sharing your beautiful home with our families!

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe it has taken me so long to write this review given the wonderful time we had on St. John. We were two families traveling together - 4 adults, 5 children (ages 5-13). The house was huge - we could have slept another family easily. All of the bedrooms connected with internal staircases, which was very important to us with small children, and a feature that was actually hard to find on St. John. The views from the house are breathtaking. We spent each morning in the pool, then explored a different beach each day, then returned for another swim in the pool and dinner on the deck. The beach chairs, toys, towels, bags were all in great condition. We had a few incidents with things in the house breaking - the ice maker, one bedroom A/C unit, and the shelving in one bedroom. In each case, the property management company was at the house in less than 30 minutes to fix the problem. They were really friendly and very responsive. We highly recommend this house!

Wonderful and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 people in this house, 9 adults and 4 children. There was never a time where we felt we are on top of each other. There was so much space and privacy. The kids were in the pool pretty much anytime we were on the property. The kitchen was full of amenities -- ice maker was great! We did have a water leak the first day we were there. It was fixed and completely taken care of by the time we got home from dinner. Very responsive management company. I'm not sure you can beat the view. It was a fantastic place to spend Thanksgiving and probably the best view we have had for our Thanksgiving meal. Very much recommend this place especially for large groups and kids.
