Villa Solemare was built with love.
It is simply one-of-a-kind and unlike any luxury Caribbean villa on St. John. The original owner was a famous restaurateur who grew up in Genoa, Italy. When he first sailed to St. John, he saw the rarefied, panoramic views from this verdant hillside locale and was reminded of Sardinia's dramatic coastline where he grew up with clear blue skies and crystal clear turquoise waters. Therefore, Villa Solemare—villa of the Sun and Sea. He fell immediately in love and so will you. He built this romantic Caribbean dream home with the same time-consuming care that he put into every serving of his signature risotto.
Romantic Dream Wedding Villa—Ultimate lifetime memories.
For small wedding parties, Villa Solemare comfortably accommodates both the wedding couple and a family of 4—all with private baths. Or consider this; Villa Solemare for the family, with the bride and groom staying at Mooncottage HA - 363438 or the Teahouse Treehouse HA - 3892521 on an adjoining estate separated by an acre of landscaped tropical gardens. Or add-in Astral Ridge HA - 4066065.
Villa Solemare has no equal when it comes to privacy, exquisite detail and warmth.
There are other Caribbean luxury rental homes in Coral Bay on St. John, but only Villa Solemare has such breathtaking views and was built with such precision and care. Enjoy the Caribbean Virgin Island view from your master bedroom in an antique king-sized, 4-poster bed or from the outdoor balcony. Refined, Mediterranean-inspired antique furnishings throughout. Not to be missed in this lifetime.

Thank you for your understanding. You will absolutely LOVE your stay.
What an incredibly beautiful, relaxing home you have. It has been a real privilege to spend time here and we thank you for opening it up. We visited beaches, hiked, spent many hours on floats in the pool, and cooked some great meals. It is the perfect home for families to vacation and spend some memorable time together. Thank you so much!!

P.S. Special kudos and appreciation to Bob McNabb. Any problem that came up he fixed immediately. You are the best Bob!
Villa Solemare does NOT disappoint. From the moment you descend the stairs, through stunning foliage, you are wowed! And, then you see the view and your breath is literally taken away. From morning to night, the view enchants you – it is simply beautiful. The home itself is gorgeous, with large bedrooms, and MASSIVE bathrooms and showers larger than some NYC apartments (not really, but they are huge). We were at VS for one week, with another couple, to celebrate my 40th birthday and our 10 year wedding anniversary and it could not have been any better. The weather in STJ was oftentimes overcast, with rain, during our stay, but that made for unbelievably beautiful forever changing views and difference in water colors. The hardest part of the week was leaving every morning …..
If you're thinking about going, go.
Wow. Brian runs a first class operation. Great communication, fast follow up and Bob is on every detail on island. The property itself has incredible views, incredible privacy, a great pool and is decorated with first class details that make you feel like you transported an Italian villa to the Caribbean. We blended the luxury of the villa with a week of sea to summit to sea hikes and great swims on perfect beaches. We chose to cook at home so we could spend more time with the view.
Just returned from two beautiful weeks at Solemare with 6 adults. The house is beautiful but the view is extraordinary. We spent most our time on the patio and pool area because your eyes are so drawn to the beauty of the surroundings! The kitchen is well equipped and it comes with a nice grill, we cooked in a lot. Fresh fish is available at Calabash market three days a week. I loved Coral Bay and the layed back style of this sleepy little fishing village.
Plus I love to hike and the trails are so gorgeous and well maintained. And what can I say about the beaches, they're some of the most beautiful in the world. I need to mention that the kitchen has all this beautiful Italian pottery to use, so fun! I could go on and on but you get the idea. Bob is also very helpful and available for anything you need.
Villa Solemare was the perfect place for 2 couples to spend a week in St. John. Located high on a mountainside with a 180 degree frontal view overlooking Coral Bay surrounded by tropical landscaping made this very secluded. The villa's layout is superb! Beautifully decorated master bedrooms on one side of the villa with a huge open gourmet kitchen and living area located on the other side of the villa,connected by a large marble floored veranda/covered Pagoda with a colorful circular table. Sandstone curving steps lead you to a lower level with a deck and infinity pool. Unbelievable layout.
The property is very clean, stocked with everything you need abundant towels, beach chairs, kitchen utensil to name a few.
Property manager Bob is helpful and on demand if you have any questions or needs.
This is a five star place with only one slight draw back that we turned into an adventure- that being the Calabash boom road that you take to get to the property.
Coral Bay Area of St. John's is a safe, laid back, pictherques area with many place to dine and have a drink and places to explore.
Great house, located high above Coral Bay, two families with college age adults really enjoyed the house, the location and more importantly the setting. Highly recommend, the house manager was very accessible if need be which is always nice if something arises. Location does require a jeep, the roads are steep and unpaved which adds to the overall experience. We plan to return!
