Lovely home, well equipped w all the accoutrements & toys needed to enjoy a week on St John. The views make it all the better.
We were so blessed to be able to stay in such an incredible villa. We felt so in tune with all the natural blessings of STJ and what it is that brings us back year after year. La Jolla Caribe is beautifully decorated and has a perfect layout; wonderful living area with equal bedrooms on all levels of this home. This villa would never disappoint and is truly a value for all that you get! Love the drive in and out each day. FYI...Thee best hot tub we have ever come across while traveling and never really been a big fan. Fun to use after returning from day at the beach with pre dinner drinks. Again, if La Jolla Caribe is available, TAKE IT!
The villa is amazing. Everything from the view (probably one of the very best views on the whole island) to the clean and nice interior is top notch. The hot tub area is awesome. The home has amazing privacy, amenities, and feels very tropical. Waking up to the sounds of the tropical birds was one of my very favorite things on the trip as was the outdoor warm water shower with am amazing view. I will definitely be back. The villa couldn't be in a better location. It is right in the middle of the island and sits between the two main roads so access in all directions is awesome. If you decide to stay here…..you will not be disappointed and you will have a memory that will last a lifetime!
St. John Paradise! This villa is absolutely heaven. The view is the best on the island. The breezes are amazing because the house is up so high. The whole house is well equipped for your every need. There are 3 beaches just a few minutes drive away or for those that love to hike a short distance away.
There are three levels and each level has a huge and fantastic deck. Since I am handicapped we stayed in one of the top floor bedrooms. That gave me access to everything I needed: kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining rooms, living room (with cable TV), the huge top deck (with the beautiful view) and a private outside walk in shower! There were orchids blooming on the wall of the shower, it was wonderful. Mark this as the next place to stay when you visit St. John!
La Jolla Caribe was pretty much perfect for my family of nine. There's enough room to spread out plus a nice living room where we could hang out together. The kitchen had everything we needed and was far better than in most rentals. We had a toddler with us so having a hot tub and no pool was good - plus why would you want a pool when there are many wonderful beaches close at hand?
The location is close to everything (OK, maybe everything is close to everything on St. John) but it was easy to get to town for shopping and the beaches for swimming. You absolutely must have a high clearance, 4 wheel drive vehicle since the road is a goat path, especially downhill to Cinnamon Bay.
It's hard to overstate the view. For the most part you are looking at undeveloped parkland or the sea or distant islands. You really are king of the mountain with a vast kingdom below.
The bedrooms were bright and cheerful and there were some complaints about biting insects but that was probably the only griping I heard all week. Everything was clean and well maintained and the management company was always helpful.
Anyone able to spend a week at this house (and this island) should be grateful for their good fortune in life.
We are repeat guests at La Jolla Caribe. How relaxing. How perfect. We love the ocean breezes and the privacy, and the view is The Most Spectacular on the island! There is an unobstructed 200+ degree view of the Caribbean, from St. Thomas on the West to British Tortola on the East and Jost Van Dyke and beyond to the North. The house is completely surrounded by National Park, and the wonderful seclusion of the Park assures peace and quiet and no extraneous light to detract from the glorious night sky.
Over the years, we have stayed in a different room on the three decks – each is lovely, with its own charm. No air conditioning is necessary. This home was built when architects knew how to take advantage of the island breezes, and every room is comfortable. We have enjoyed many wonderful dinners – and breakfasts – on the covered dining table on the deck, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen. The “jungle shower” outside the master bedroom is a special treat.
The road to the house used to be difficult in places, but it is much improved now with some extensive paving.
Two super beaches are within sight, and four more are just a quick hop. It is an easy 10 minute drive into Cruz Bay for supplies, shops, and restaurants. But we don’t stay long in town. The house and setting is why we come and why we will be back!
***I am disabled and this place was perfect for me. The top floor gives you access to living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a marvelous deck.
