What makes this villa unique

One of the best features of this villa is being to escape from it all. You truly feel like you have your own private piece of paradise. From watching cruise ships in the distance to watching the sun come up with a cup a coffee, this will truly become your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I spent our 14th wedding anniversary at Island Dreams and couldn't have been happier. We were amazed at how the house had every amenity you could think of....from beach towels to professional cookware. Sitting on the porch drinkning coffe and watching the sun come up was truly amazing. Dealing with the owners through VRBO was great and easy. Once on island their property manager was there for our every need. We can't wait to return to Island Dreams next year!

Picture Perfect Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time of rest and relaxation at Island Dreams on St John. The views from the decks are as stunning as they appear in the pictures. It was always very breezy when sitting on the deck facing Coral Bay, but in the heat of the day, it was welcomed. The kitchen was great and we chose to eat out only a handful of times during our stay as we enjoyed using the well stocked kitchen and grill outside. We found a nice little grocery store just 5 minutes away in Coral Bay - Dolphin Grocery Store. Once we got accustomed to the island pricing, we pretty much found all we needed and more at that store. In my opinion, the jeep is a must, unless you are already used to the roads in St John. Having the private pool was great to cool off after a hike or sitting in the sun. The hosts provide beach chairs, coolers and a great selection of paperback books to use for your beach trips, which we found very useful. Although we came to relax and unplug, it was nice to have good internet connection to check in occasionally and take care of business when necessary. Would definitely recommend this property to any couple looking for a quiet beach vacation.

All that we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Island Dreams on St. John. It WAS as amazing as it looks in the photos, but even better in person of course. The villa has everything that you need and more. We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful sunrise every morning without even getting out of bed. The views from the deck and pool are so amazing, we spent as much time outside as we could. Even a view while you shower, you can't get much better than that!

We went out for dinners and spent some time in Cruz Bay, which was nice , but we were so happy to return to the villa and Coral Bay every day for a more quiet and laid back experience.

We did a lot of hiking, snorkeling, and just enjoying the most beautiful beaches. The short drives around the island allowed us to do so many things and explore so many different areas of the island while still having time to relax and enjoy it all too. I do recommend a jeep or 4-wheel drive because the roads can be rough, even leading to the villa.

St. John is amazing and Island Dreams is a great place to stay while there. I wish I was back there already!

The view and the breeze....ah yes!

  • 4 of 5

This is truly a home away from home with all you need in the kitchen and comfortable living and sleeping spaces. The upper floor has the kitchen and breakfast bar, a full bath, and a side room with a comfy couch and direct TV (plus dvd and cd players with a nice selection of classics for both.) The deck wraps around the front and side offering stunning views from inside and out. The pool is small and cool. (We never used it because the strong breeze made it a little too chilly for us) and the deck chairs are tucked back in a protected corner with a decent view (a good thing again because of the breeze.) Outside stairs from both ends of the deck lead down to the bedroom level. One bedroom is the owner's suite and locked up and the second bedroom was for us. Another deck runs along the front of this level and the big sliding doors in the bedrooms, leading out to the deck, offer refreshing air circulation and an amazing view. (We never ever even thought about putting on the a/c although it is available both upstairs and down.) The ensuite bathroom is roomy and nicely furnished. The location is central to everything in Coral Bay and, although you definitely need a Jeep to get up and down the hill and across some of the rocks in the road leading to their gated community of 3 or 4 houses, the trip isn't too daunting if you take it slow! And the view and the breeze are worth the drive for sure!!! The only downsides for us were that the dining area is behind the house in a lovely, landscaped gazebo but there is no view, they are caring for a stray cat who can be quite feisty (and is expecting soon...needs to be spayed!!!), and the bed and bathroom linens are a little tired, but other than that, we loved everything about the place. We would definitely chose Island Dreams again for another visit to St. John.

Awesome view and amenities

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our first stay in St. John and Island Dreams was the perfect place for us. It's location is quiet and private and the view of Coral Bay was beautiful. We spent hours sitting by the pool and enjoying the view along with the island breeze. Beaches for snorkeling are only a short drive away. We grilled out almost every night and the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind and remember who you are, this is the place!

Loved our stay! House is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to St. John and we loved it! We were greeted at the ferry by the owner's representative, driven to the car rental agency and then led to the house (driving on the 'wrong' side of the road took some getting used to though) where we were given a tour of the house. The house description and pictures were spot on; prior to the trip the owner quickly answered our questions. The house had all the amenities that were promised and was clean and well maintained. A lot of privacy and the view is one of a kind. We loved Miss Lucy's restaurant and the Aqua Bistro. Beaches were beautiful. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Review of our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had our best visit yet to St. John because of the beautiful home we stayed in. Beautiful inside and out, amazing sunrises and views of Coral Bay. The home was well stocked and well cared for. Looking forward to staying there again!

Enjoy the quieter side of the island, but with all the amenities. Located just down the hill are famous restaurants and shopping. Also close by are small grocery stores where you can bring food home and grill while watching the sun set from the house.
