Overview

Cruz Bay House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 4

Location, Location, Location!

Pearl Guest House is a beautiful new waterfront home on Rendezvous Bay, within the exclusive Boatman Point neighborhood. Its just a 5 - 10 minute drive from downtown Cruz Bay where you'll find groceries, restaurants, and shopping; and a 15-minute drive to the VI National Park beaches. At Pearl Guest House, you'll discover another world where you can unwind and relax with the sea.

Pearl Guest House is on the waterfront. The views and sounds of the bay are amazing - like being on a boat. On a calm day one can see the coral reefs and fish below. The bay is very private and pristine, offering excellent snorkeling and kayaking. There is a path on the property to access the beach below or we have access to a private staircase to the beach which is only two houses away. The house is in a private neighborhood and is on a dead-end street. The Pearl Guest House faces to the east which has several advantages: glorious sunrises, shade in the afternoon, and best of all, constant breezes.

Pearl Guest House is a gorgeous two-story home with main living space (kitchen, dining, living) on the upper level, and bedrooms with private attached bathrooms and laundry room on the lower level.

The interior is tastefully decorated and has cool travertine floors throughout. Every room has large, screened sliding glass doors to enjoy the views and breezes. If you prefer, A/C is available throughout the home.

The kitchen is well-appointed with everything a cook might need including a microwave, dishwasher and outdoor BBQ grill. There are granite countertops and cherry cabinets including an island with stool seating. The upper level also has an indoor dining table with seating for four as well as the main living/seating area with an entertainment center. Amenities include cable TV with DVD player, stereo with CD player, high speed internet service with WiFi. There is a collection of movies for your use while here. The upper level also has an outside covered deck with seating - the perfect spot to watch the sunlight or moonlight dance on the water below.

The lower level (accessed by an exterior stairway) contains two bedrooms with adjoining private bathrooms, and a laundry room. Both bedrooms have one king-size bed and A/C. There are large sliding glass doors in each bedroom offering wonderful views of the bay and beyond. Lay in bed and be lulled asleep by the sound of the surf and tropical breezes.

The spacious lower deck is the perfect location for al fresco dining. The deck is very private and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. Look down to see bananas, coconut palms, key lime trees, frangipani, and more!

Pearl guests are welcome to use a 2-seat kayak which is on the beach below. You can paddle across the bay and relax at the white sand Ditleiff Beach. We also have coolers, beach chairs and some snorkel gear for your use while here. All linens and beach towels are provided. Pack light and relax!

The Pearl Guest House is the ideal choice for the perfect Caribbean escape!

About Karen O

We left the suburbs of Chicago after falling in love with St. John on a sailing trip. After being here 8 years, we still love it! Pearl Guest House is a two-bedroom home adjacent to the Blue Pearl Villa, our dream project which we designed and built. We have moved into the Villa and are now renting the Guest House. We value our privacy and will respect yours, but of course if you need any assistance, we are nearby to help in any way. We certainly hope you find the place as magical as we do!

Karen O purchased this house in 2008

Great Locatiom with Personal Attention

  • 5 of 5

Pearl is perfect for you if you like a great island location, stunning views, personal attention and cleanliness! The separation of bedrooms and living areas makes room enough for everyone and multiple activities. The balconies are fabulous for sunning, dining, happy hour or morning tea! The trail to the sea makes for great adventures right outside your door! Will keep this property on my "best" list.

Excellent place on St. John

  • 5 of 5

First off, of all the rentals we've done through VRBO/Homeaway... Karen & Ibro are the best and most responsive owners out there. They couldn't be nicer people. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us. The location is fantastic. The view is spectacular. And a whole host of little things made the trip so much easier. For example, beach chairs, beach mat for picnics, floats... and a place for us to fresh water spray our gear after snorkeling. The kitchen was well equipped, and their were plenty of towels for both beach and shower use. I really can't find anything wrong with the place. It's a very nice place, it's in fantastic condition, and the owners are as good as they come.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family just got back from a fabulous week on St. John and the beautiful Pearl Guest House. The owners are lovely people who made our stay just perfect. The home is immaculately clean and stylishly decorated. The views from this home are stunningly gorgeous! Cruz Bay is an easy 5 minutes drive from the property. We would love a return visit to this villa!

Wonderful view, great amenities and a quiet place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our friends (another couple) spent six days and five nights on St. John over the Thanksgiving week. We stayed in Karen & Ibro's guest house and found everything we needed, including a wonderful gift basket with coffee, chocolates, cheese and cured meat to feed our travel weary bodies.

Ibro met us at Courtesy Car Rental and led us to their house after our arrival by ferry. The drive is about 10 minutes from town, just far enough to get used to driving on the left side of the road. The most stunning moment was driving up to the parking for the guest house, as Karen has referred to it, "parking with a view". Both Karen and Ibro provided a tour of the house, amenities, electronics and AC (in all rooms).

In short: The house was a wonderful retreat to spend each evening, cook some great meals with friends and watch the waves come in to Rendezvous Bay. The mornings we woke up to the sound of waves and if we arose early enough, the sun came up in the saddle across the bay.

Karen, Ibro - we truly appreciate the hospitality and making us feel welcome to St. John.

WOW! Better than we could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

The Pearl Guest House was everything you could dream of for a vacation. St. John is one of our favorite vacation spots, and the Pearl Guest House topped all of our previous stays for sure! The view is unbelievable! What a wonderful way to wake up each day! Karen and Ibro were very gracious hosts, and provided everything we might need during our stay. Karen was great to communicate with while we were planning our vacation, and Ibro even met us at our Jeep rental location to show us how to get to the house. The location is great, as the house is not far from town, but also private. They had everything available we might need (beach chairs, towels, etc.) for our stay in St. John. We can't wait to go back to St. John and stay at the Pearl Guest House.

This is it!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive things about the Pearl Guest House. First of all, St. John is my husband and my favorite vacation destination. If we need a break, we try to head to St. John. We always rent a Jeep and have toured the island enough to feel like seasoned visitors with personal knowledge of the best spots, etc. We've stayed at five different places including "luxury" abodes such as the Gibney villas and the Peter Bay Gatehouse. The Pearl Guest House was by far our favorite for multiple reasons. First, the view is beyond incredible. There is literally an ocean view from every room in the house (even the bathrooms!) Ibro and Karen have done a stunning job with the interior. The living area has vaulted ceilings, a lot of light, morning sun on the patio, and a lovely overall feel. The bottom level houses the bedrooms which we found very comfortable with an oversized bathroom and washer/dryer. One nice surprise was how convenient the guest house was to town for groceries, restaurants, etc. It's also centrally located to the road to Coral Bay, so we found it to be so easy to get wherever we were heading. I also have to say how professionally yet friendly the hosts treated us. They were on hand to help, but not intrusive. We just loved our experience there and wouldn't hesitate to return.
