Overview

Fish Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 baths, pool, hot tub, a/c, private, very quiet

Surfside enjoys a pristine location on the very edge of the undeveloped National Park lands at Reef Bay. The tranquilizing and unspoiled views from Surfside include the turquoise seas and the jade green forests of the south shore National Park. It's an easy walk on a private path to the often-deserted white sand beach that offers snorkeling, swimming and beach combing. There are few homes on this hard-to-find road to the beach, and this contributes to a very peaceful and quiet location that is blessed with great natural beauty. Despite its end of the world feel, Surfside is only a four mile drive from the restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay. Reef Bay remains a wonderful and still secret location that tourists rarely discover.

The charming 3-level villa uses attractive Mediterranean design features such as beautiful stone walls, antique brick patios and a French terra cotta tiled roof. It is built on a sloping hillside and uses three floors to create an atmosphere of privacy and comfort for up to six persons. The living, dining and kitchen areas, plus a south facing sun deck, two covered patios and an en suite bedroom and bath are located on the main (entrance) level. Interior stairs lead to the second bedroom and bath on the upper level. Exterior stairs lead down to the pool, sun deck, hot tub, and the lower level bedroom and bath. Steps from the pool deck lead to the path to the beach.

The living areas are designed to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing home away from home. The cathedral ceilings, rose tiled floors and Indonesian teak furniture create a tropical atmosphere in the intimate living room. While nothing beats the mesmerizing sounds of the surf below and nature outside, an iPod ready stereo system and a flat screen HDTV with DVD provide electronic entertainment. The cook's kitchen features brand new marble countertops, a farm sink and professional stainless steel appliances, including a dual-fuel stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and all cooking and dining accessories. A gas barbeque is located on the patio and the washer and dryer are located on the lower level. Surfside offers two dining locations, both with romantic ocean views. The interior teak dining table seats 6 comfortably, as does the beautiful outdoor teak dining table located on the oceanfront deck.

All three bedrooms are similar in size and furnishings and all offer good privacy, air conditioning and great ocean views. The queen bedroom on the main level has French doors that open to a small deck. The upper level king bedroom also has a small deck with lovely views. The lower level king bedroom is off the pool deck. Each bedroom has an attractive adjoining tiled bath and shower and there are flat screen TVs on all three levels.

With refreshing ocean breezes, all day sun, fabulous views, and the soothing background music of waves breaking on the beach, Surfside is a charming and romantic hideaway for honeymooners and lovers. With frequent wildlife sightings and great swimming and hiking, the villa is also an excellent choice for nature lovers and families with beach loving kids. It's the perfect location for the perfect vacation!

Why Alan Pedersen chose St John

After looking all over the Caribbean, we drove down an out of the way road on St. John and discovered Reef Bay with its end of the world location, incredible views and fabulous beach. We knew our search was over!

What makes this villa unique

You can walk out your door and enjoy great hiking, beachcombing and swimming. Deer, iguana and many types of birds are frequent visitors. You can hike to the petroglyphs and sugar mill ruins from the villa.

Favorite rental home ever!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant to rent this house since there were no recent reviews but wow-what a treat! The views are stunning from all 3 porches. The seclusion and privacy of the pool and hot tub were so romantic. The hike to the beach was beautiful and we were often the only ones out there. The outside spaces of the property make this house so special. We stayed in the upstairs bedroom for the best view out to the ocean. This home is well suited for up to 6 people. It was also stocked with games, novels, bird books, binoculars, ice chest, beach chairs and towels, plenty of kitchen gadgets and dishes, nice bath towels, washer and dryer, pool floats. It was not a bad drive (about 15 minutes) into Cruz Bay and there was also quick access to 104 to get to the other side of the island. There is an iguana that lives near the pool but we never did see him. The sounds of the ocean and birds were so relaxing to listen to at night. We were fortunate to be there at full moon and the reflections on the water at night were beautiful. The pool got full sun most of the day so was a nice temperature for swimming into the evening. We enjoyed having a separate table on the lower level in the shade for when the sun was out. The driveway was a little difficult to pull out of so definitely recommend a 4WD jeep. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here but I hope to come back and bring my college age kids soon. I wouldn't recommend this property for someone who has difficulty walking due to the number of stairs. Other than that, absolutely loved this place! Even with a few houses to the right, with plenty of vegetation I still felt like it was a very private home.

Island Magic

  • 5 of 5

The most relaxing spot on earth! Surfside is private, spacious, comfortable and fully equipped -- just pack your bathing suit and a towel and let the ocean breezes and the sun work their magic. We enjoyed the fabulous views of Reef Bay, the amazing night skys, the gorgeous beach, poolside visits by iguanas and bananaquits and long, lazy days exploring St. John. This is a great place to refresh and renew your spirit.

Can't Wait to Return

  • 5 of 5

Absolute best vacation ever. The house is in a quiet, secluded area with a great view of the ocean. The facilities are well-maintained and had everything we needed for our one week stay. The photos do not actually show how nice the home really is. The drive to and from town was easy once we did it a couple of times. The restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay were fun, but we would have been just as happy to have stocked up at the grocery store and cooked at the house every night. The beach below the house is great for exploring. The pool has a great view of the ocean, as do most of the rooms in the house. We really enjoyed our time here and would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone.
