Great place for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Villekulla is a lovely, comfortable and colorful house, set above a picturesque harbor, that was perfect for our adult family vacation. Whatever fun we were having during the day -- snorkeling, hiking, boating -- we always looked forward to coming back to the house with it's two-level deck, beautiful vistas, and pool. We got a lot of use out of the two kayaks to row around the harbor and to the Westin. It's very convenient to Starfish Market and to the restaurants in Cruz Bay (we liked Beach Bar for drinks, Waterfront Bistro for a special meal, Lime Inn, and the kids liked Rhumb Lines -- service was great everywhere). We easily managed to cook Thanksgiving dinner here. Nanci, the property manager, was excellent to work with -- very helpful and accommodating. The pictures are very accurate and we would totally recommend a stay here. Would love to come back.

Excellent Location, Highly Recommend Villa Villekula

  • 4 of 5

Villa Villekula is located ideally near Cruz Bay. Very close to the Westin & St. John Market for easy grocery shopping. I have stayed on St. John a few times and the location of Villa Villekula was more convenient than others due to the proximity to shopping & restaurants. Nancy, the property manager was excellent to work with. She arranged our airport transportation for arrival & departure and waited for us to get our rental cars etc. Here are the only downfalls (but I've noticed most of these issues at any home I've rented on the island) : Furniture is getting very worn (especially in living room). The cushions need a very deep cleaning, the patio furniture also could use a deep cleaning, the house in general could use a deep cleaning and paint touch up. Trim, doors etc are getting very dirty. Everything else was great! Will definitely come back!

  • 4 of 5

Great location for easy access to Cruz Bay Restaurants, Shopping, Ferry etc.

Clean Home, Comfortable, Internet & TV's worked great.

Beds are comfy.

Access to Great Cruise bay and kayaks was awesome, pool was great

Overall nice place to stay

Minor downsides are

Noisy AC in master bed.

Moldy cushions on 4 of the seven outdoor lounge chairs. (3 vinyl ones are fine)

Master bath shower has very low pressure because faucets are leaking.

Very nice house to stay in!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the house. I thought there was a picture with some sand by the water and when we go there that was not the case, but very nicely located. The kayaks were handy to have and it's very close to the Westin resort so they have a nice beach and Scuba Shop. Nancy was very friendly and helpful also. I would recommend it to anyone going to St John.

Villa Villekula- Fantastic rental on St. John, Virgin Islands

  • 5 of 5

This house met all of our family vacation needs, being well located near the Westin Resort and all the water activities offered there and a short drive to all the fabulous restaurants in town. Morgan's Mango and The Waterfront Cafe were two of our favorites. When we did stay in, the kitchen has everything you could need. We loved that the house is well stocked with books for vacation reading. Lovely views, quiet. Fantastic property manager. We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family.
