Overview

About the property

4 Bdrm, 4 Bath with pool, a/c, walk to a beach

Casa Del Sol is a gorgeous plantation style home that consists of a majestic 2-level stone main house that is flanked on both sides by a 2-level bedroom tower. The building materials and the design of Casa Del Sol are traditional Caribbean, with handsome arched stonework and antique brick patios, two grand stairways, fully screened and custom built mahogany doors and windows, terra cotta tiled floors, and beamed cathedral ceilings. It enjoys a wonderfully scenic and sunny location in the top row of villas in the exclusive and private neighborhood of Klein Bay, on the south shore of St. John. It’s less than a 10 minute drive into Cruz Bay with all its colorful restaurants, bars and boutiques, and it’s less than a 10 minute walk down to swimming and snorkeling at the small beach below the house. Klein Bay is a neighborhood with no commercial hotels or condos and very limited residential development, so this area has maintained its unique beauty and peaceful character.

As for the house, it is beautiful to behold and wonderful to enjoy. The great room and two bedrooms are on the upper level, while the lower level contains two bedrooms, pool, wet bar, a fifth full bath and a covered deck and sun decks. That gives everybody plenty of room and privacy while also providing many common areas for people to share together.

In 2014 the entire villa was remodeled with a custom install of fully screened doors and windows. One of the objectives of the remodel was to insure that the soothing Caribbean winds can drift through the house, but the no-see-ums and other flying insects cannot. With arched stone windows and doorways it cost almost $300,00 to effectively remodel every door and window, but the job was a complete success that now greatly enhances the comfort and livability of Casa Del Sol.

All the bedrooms are air conditioned with screened mahogany doors and windows, terra cotta tiled floors, queen mahogany beds, plantation style furniture, custom built mahogany and granite baths, and showers with a lovely view. Both upper bedrooms open to their own 100 sq/ft covered balcony with a lovely view, while the lower bedrooms also open to a covered deck with scenic views. Each bedroom includes a custom granite and mahogany bath and shower.

On the upper level there is a 650 square foot great room that contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. With its handsome stone walls, arched screened mahogany doors and windows, beamed cathedral ceiling, terra cotta tiled floors, and wicker and mahogany furniture, this room recreates the feeling of a classic Caribbean plantation. Yet it also includes a 32” flat screen TV/DVD, high speed wireless internet, and an AM/FM stereo/CD played through 4 ceiling mounted speakers in the great room, with another 4 speakers on the lower level at the wet bar and pool, with volume controls on both levels.

The kitchen combines beauty and function with mahogany cabinets and granite counter tops, a side by side refrigerator and freezer with water and ice dispenser, a 4 burner glass topped electric stove with 36” standard and convection ovens, a microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, and coffeemaker. A 12 piece set of Calphalon cookware and abundant dishes, dinnerware, and dining linens for a party of 10 are provided.

Mr and Mrs Ted Gelov purchased this villa in 2010

Why Mr and Mrs Ted Gelov chose Cruz Bay

Like so many visitors to St. John, our family fell in love with this wonderful island because there’s just no other place quite as special and beautiful as St. John, especially for a Caribbean family vacation. We were looking for a comfortable home away from home where our children could walk to a beach and where they could safely walk around the local town to shop and explore. We also wanted a home that was both classic and beautiful on the outside, and modern and comfortable on the inside. When Casa Del Sol came on the market, we knew this was the perfect home for us. Because the villa is a member of the Klein Bay Association, we have access to the beach below the house, which provides enjoyable swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in calm, warm Caribbean waters (kayaks can be rented in Cruz Bay). We were also enthralled by this wonderful location, with lots of sun, marvelous views, and a tranquil and serene atmosphere. The oversized lot that surrounds Casa Del Sol also provides the peaceful privacy that we truly love. For our family, Casa Del Sol is a slice of heaven and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Del Sol was built in 1999 and was very well cared for and was not rented, so when we bought it 11 years later the house was in like new condition, and we intend to keep it that way. The home consists of a classic exterior design, with a thoroughly modern interior. For those who love to be outside, but not in the sun, Casa Del Sol’s multiple covered decks and balconies provide numerous places to relax and enjoy the lovely views. Because the decks were thoughtfully designed with a direct line of sight into the pool, adults can relax nearby in the shade while watching over any children in the pool.

For families that love to vacation together, the four bedrooms provide excellent privacy with no common walls. Each bedroom has a covered balcony or deck, lovely views, custom granite and mahogany baths, and showers with a view

The pool and the spacious sun deck are bathed in Caribbean sunshine from sunrise to late in the afternoon. The pool has stereo speakers at both ends, and a few steps away is a stone and granite wet bar and refrigerator, plus another set of speakers with speaker controls. At night, starlight and moonbeams shimmer on the sea before you. When you’re in the pool, you’re surrounded by music, soothed by the gentle trade winds and very relaxed.

The perfect villa...

  • 5 of 5

Casa del Sol is hard to describe in words. This property delivered beyond expectations and is truly the perfect vacation rental. The views are breath taking, the amenities are top-notch, the management company is very professional (my second experience with CVRM - both times a pain-free process) and we loved this house so much! A/C works great in the bedrooms and the breeze in the main house will keep you cool.

You cannot go wrong by staying at Casa del Sol.

THE HOUSE AND THE STAFF AT CARIBBEAN VILLAS WAS AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 (my wife and I, our college-age daughter and her friend) a great time! Casa Del Sol was amazing; from the moment we drove up to the house we could tell this place was perfect. As you can see in the pics, the house is made of stone inside and out and is obviously someone's personal vacation home and not just "a rental" the furnishings and decor are all high end from the decor to the antiques. All of the bedrooms and the main house have a terrace overlooking a breathtaking view of the pool and the ocean from high on the mountain! This house had everything we needed; from a well-appointed kitchen to a storage room with beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, etc. I own a beach home rental in North Carolina; so, I'm very particular about homes that I rent and this house did not disappoint. The main house is not air conditioned, but with the stone walls, open air design and constant breeze, it was never an issue. The bedrooms do have a/c but they were rarely used because of the breeze and the fact we were there in March. The only issue we had was with low water pressure in the bedroom, but after a call, someone was out within the hour to fix. I have stayed in rental homes all over the Caribbean but this house is the most amazing I have ever stayed at. But, what was more amazing was

the Caribbean Villas' staff. They were all awesome from the very start.

Our flight into St. Thomas was delayed by 4 hours putting us into St. John

about 9:30pm. I was in contact with Diane at Caribbean Villas (well after hours) up until I made contact with our Greeter, Kay, who also stayed late to meet us at the ferry dock and even coordinated with our

Jeep rental company to ensure we could get our car that night. Kudos to the

entire staff at Caribbean Villas. Thanks for an awesome experience! Just a side note about St. John: it is one of the cleanest and safest islands in the Caribbean. It's a small community and everyone knows everyone else and we never once felt unsafe anywhere we went. We will definitely be back as we will use St. John and, hopefully, Casa Del Sol as home base to explore more of the British Virgin Isles! Also, I was hesitant to rent the property because it only had two reviews on VRBO, but after some research, I found that this house advertises on several different site with all great reviews, so don't let that sway you from renting this truly awesome property!

What's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples found Casa del Sol the perfect mix of togetherness and privacy. So many outdoor living spaces--both sunny and shaded--to gather and enjoy the views and one another. Indoor great room/kitchen wonderful for nightly feasts. 4 separate pods/bedrooms for each couple to have some privacy. The home is nicely stocked with all you need for cooking and dining. Beach equipment in good shape and in ample supply. Screens to keep the mosquitoes out. Only criticism would be the lighting in the kitchen is lacking for evening meal prep, but if that is all you can complain about in paradise, I think it's a pretty good day!

Casa del Sol!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! The 8 in our party enjoyed a wonderful week! Days at the pool or beach - very enjoyable. Dancing on the pool deck at night under the stars - awesome! Hope to be back again next year. Same time, same place, same friends!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I skipped school for the opportunity to stay at Casa del Sol and it was one of the better school skipping decisions I've made! Casa del Sol, or Heaven, as I call it is beyond paradise. There are few words to describe it that do it justice. I had a fantastic time with my family and given the chance would skip school again for it! Even my teachers understood when I emailed them a picture haha. Pictures can't capture the beauty of this place any better than words can describe it. i leave with a very heavy heart but cherish the time I was allowed to spend here. I thank everyone responsible for me being allowed to spend a couple days in heaven. I highly recommend star gazing. Few places anymore have a night time view like there is here! Back to oh so cold Michigan! :(

Casa Del Sol is located on the top row of villas in the exclusive neighborhood of Klein Bay. There are about fifteen upscale villas in Klein Bay, which is a snug cove that is part of Rendezvous Bay, a larger bay on St. John's Caribbean coast. Limited development of this area insures its unique beauty, privacy and peacefulness. Ditliff Point is the peninsula that curves south into the Caribbean and protects two beaches in Klein Bay that provide swimming and snorkeling close to home, with turquoise waters, brightly colored fish, sea fans and other sea life. A 5-15 minute swim or snorkel takes you to the little used white sand beach on Ditliff Point, or you can swim and snorkel at the tranquil pebble beach directly below you in Klein Bay. The restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay are a 10 minute drive on paved roads.
