The views from this villa are breathtaking 24 hours a day. The sunsets are often spectacular and shortly thereafter all the night lights of St. Thomas come on, creating a captivating view that lasts all night. Daybreak is also a special time as you can watch the early morning boats come into and leave from the Westin Resort just below.
During the day the view is tranquil and captivating as the sail and power boats pass by, and an occasional cruise ship can be seen slipping along en route to St. Thomas. It would be hard to find a more picturesque view from any kitchen than the daytime view of the sea below from this villa.
'Paradise Revisited' is designed to 'bring the outside in' with open-air, screened-in areas for the kitchen, dining room and lounges. The tradewinds can provide a gentle, refreshing breeze that runs right through the villa common areas.
Each of the four bedrooms is air conditioned and each has its own bathroom and its own private deck area. There is a separate deck with two hammocks that guests can use for taking an afternoon nap or just relaxing and admiring the tropical vegitation.
Chocolate Hole is one of the best locations on St. John. It is a relatively quiet and peacefull area, yet only a short ride to the Starfish grocery store and retail shops. The drive to Cruz Bay town takes only a few minutes, and that is were you will find excellent shopping, restaurants and other night time activities.

I first visited St. John about thirty years ago which made a lasting impression on me. I felt then, and still believe, that St. John is perhaps the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. When in St. John my daughter loves to go horseback riding in Coral Bay while my son likes the snorkeling best. My kids are in fifth grade. We often go down over their summer break and take a classmate buddy or two and their families with us. The kids all love to play in the pool for hours on end in the afternoon after a day at the beach.
St. John is a special place in that roughly 2/3 of the island is a National Park. The shops are upscale by island standards and St. John has many excellent restraurants. The beaches all along the north shore are wonderfull.
Our extended family stayed at Paradise Revisited over the Christmas holiday. The house easily accommodated the 7 of us. The house and grounds are lovely, with spectacular views. There are two bedrooms on the main level with the kitchen / dining area, etc. and two bedrooms downstairs, at pool level. We were interested in this property because of the easy access from the parking area and close proximity to town and beaches. Each of the bedrooms comes with its own bathroom; however, the two down stairs bedrooms are only accessible by going outside. It is notable that there is no common main level bathroom, making it necessary to enter a bedroom to access one. The kitchen was very well equipped. I agree with the previous reviewer that our only concern was the mosquitoes, which made sitting outside in the early morning unpleasant and some mosquitoes also managed to find their way inside.
This home is located in a convenient location to Cruz Bay and the motor ferry. IT is just past the Westin Resort and located near a number of other private homes. The images accuratly describe the home. It is notable that two bedrooms and all the living space are on the main level and two bedrooms are accessible independently on the lower level, each having private entrances and full bathrooms. The two lower level bedrooms are on the same level as the hammock deck and pool area. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was fully equipped, and furniture was on par and in good condition with most properties in the area. The entrance was flat and easy to access. I have visited the USVI islands many times and will definitely consider this property in the future. We had a wonderful vacation and the home and pool were wonderful for our family. The only concern at all was the number of mosquitos. I don't think the was related to the propertly location as much as there was substantial rainfall prior to our arrival and the wind was more calm than normal which made for beautiful days, but with a payback of more mosquitos during the nights.
