About Aaron Smith

It all started in the 80's...

My parents discovered St. John in 1980. Every year after that, they would stay on St. Thomas and take the people ferry over to St. John every day. My brother and I would come down with them every Spring Break. We would spend the day at the beach and return to St. Thomas in the evening.

Fast forward a few years...College, marriage, children (Tyler, Garrett, and Emersen). Then in 2005, I wanted to surprise Jana for her 40th birthday. So I planned a trip with our good friends to stay on St. John for a week. It was an incredible trip. That’s when it got into our blood. We “got” it. The whole vibe of St. John: the beauty of the island, the people, the culture, the pace of life (island time). After that trip, we immediately began planning our next trip to St. John for the following year. We also vacationed in a few other places that year, but nothing compared...We were hooked! We have returned every year since.

In 2008 we took our first-ever two week vacation (to St. John of course). We love staying for two weeks---you have time to really decompress and get on island time.

Aaron Smith purchased this villa in 2011

Why Aaron Smith chose Cruz Bay

We have stayed on the Coral Bay side and the Cruz Bay side. During our 2010 trip, we looked at some land and some houses, with the dream of living here one day. It quickly became an obsession. We looked at several homes, but the view at Blue Heaven Rendezvous kept us coming back. We ended up buying in 2011. We hope you enjoy Blue Heaven Rendezvous as much as we do. It is in the classic caribbean style with extensive stone work throughout the property and Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The View!

It is mesmerizing. When we are on St John, we are outside almost all of the time. Breakfast or just coffee on the deck, taking in the morning view as the island wakes up. Most of the day is spent at one of our favorite beaches, we pack a cooler with 'beach sandwiches'. For some reason a sandwich always tastes better at the beach. In the late afternoon we're back on the deck as the sun begins to fade. We grill out most nights with music and cocktails. We hope you will enjoy the villa as much as we do. It is affordably priced so that others can enjoy two weeks on island as well.

Wonderful getaway villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this villa. We were welcomed by the property managers at the ferry dock in cruz bay and with a short steep drive (the whole island is very steep and windy roads!) we arrived to our villa placed in the hills of St. John with breath taking views of the ocean. Aaron has refreshments and snacks awaiting on our arrival which was very nice after a long day of traveling. There is AC only in the bedrooms, but we did not need it in the living area/ kitchen when we were home we keep the sliding doors open with the island breeze flowing in is all you need. The villa is very well equipped with everything from beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, full equipped kitchen if you want to cook a meal in, Gas grill, bath towels, laundry room. It is a short drive to cruz bay, grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants. We visited a different beach each day and had wonderful relaxing evenings at our villa. Can't wait to book our next trip!

Heavenly views and breezes

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as represented in the listing. All of the comforts of home and even a much needed welcome snack. I would highly recommend this property. Be sure to rent a vehicle if considering this property.

A cool spot for three couples!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the villa. The views are breathtaking and it's a short trip into town. We stayed with two other couples and we had plenty of privacy. The rooms were comfortable and the house always had a nice breeze running through it. Although there were tiny mosquitoes around we weren't really bothered and we were quick to shut screens doors when we were coming/going. The management company and owner were extremely helpful when we couldn't find a car rental and when we had a slight problem with internet. Overall, a great spot on St. John! Would definitely recommend to others! Happy New Year!

Comfortable house. Well equipped. Gorgeous view.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. Each room has its own A/C and bathroom. The Mosquitos are a bit of a menace but all doors have screens which helped a lot. Comfy living space and well equipped kitchen as well as an outside grill. The beach chairs came in very handy on our beach days. But the best part of the house is the amazing view off the back deck. It's one of the best on the island!! It catches both the sunrise and sunset. We never got tired of looking at it. Overall we were very pleased with our accommodations.

Owner's Response: Amy - We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We recently replaced all the sliders in the house to help with the mosquitoes Good to here it's working. We agree that it is the best view on the island! It's always nice to wake up to that view and enjoy coffee on the deck. Our favorite time of day is in the afternoon coming home from the beach, as the sun begins to set with fresh fish on the grill and a refreshing beverage in hand. Cheers!

Home Away From Home; Pros & Cons

  • 4 of 5

This house is comfortable, spacious and clean. It pretty much has everything you need and a few little extras (like items left behind from previous tenants... sun screen, laundry detergent, coffee filters, ketchup, etc.). The decor is nice and tropical; every room has a spectacular view!

A few things to be aware of: The AC is only in the bedrooms, but there are plenty of screens, ceiling fans, and always a tropical breeze. We were always comfortable. Also, there's no dishwasher in the kitchen, but I didn't mind washing our dirty dishes by hand. They provide lots of dish soap, kitchen towels & drying rack. There's a nice laundry room with another spectacular view. There are other houses in the same location, but they are spread out enough that you don't hear or see anyone else. You will see some wild life, but that's adorable... birds, lizards, tropical flowers, etc.

Important info about St. John: If this is your first time visiting the island, as it was ours, you might be shocked to see how very steep the roads are, and some of the sharp turns going up or down the hills are pretty scary. It's like being on a roller coaster. You really have to slow down for the turns and watch out for other drivers. This house is located on the south side of the island on the side of a steep hill, which is why the view is so nice . The drive to this property was scary for us the first few days, and then we acclimated to it. With that said, the drive everywhere on this island is pretty darn scary. I was also shocked to see so many dangerously steep driveways all over the place. Wonderfully, I can share that the driveway for this property is very nice and flat and straight. Getting to it is another story, but again, that's everywhere on the island. Some families say that driving the crazy hills is part of the fun and experience. You have to rent a 4x4 vehicle. 99% of the vehicles were jeeps. We needed more seating, so we rented a Ford Explorer. It handled pretty well. The drive to Cruz Bay was only about 10 minutes. If you want to go to the beaches on the north side of the island (Maho, Cinnamon, Trunk Bay, Waterlemon, etc.), when pulling out of the driveway (there's a mirror so you can see if anything is coming), turn right to go up hill and connect with Rt 10 at the top, and take it East to route 20. It's about a 20 min drive to get to those beaches.

Blue Heaven was comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Kelly, Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the island as first timers. When you return for your next trip, I think you will find that hills aren't that scary any more. We look forward to having you back to Blue Heaven Rendezvous!

Our on-island Villa Manager will meet you at the Ferry Dock and escort you to the villa and give you an orientation. They are available during your entire stay for any questions about the villa or if any maintenance items pop up. They are a wonderful couple who are happy help, if needed.

You will want to explore the island from this perfect location. Just a short drive into town (Cruz Bay) and for world famous beaches: Honeymoon, Solomon, Caneel, Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho and Francis; snorkeling, scuba, hiking, shopping, dining, and happy hour.

When you want to head to Coral Bay (quieter side), it's a quick drive via centerline road to Coral Bay. Enjoy a great burger or fish sandwich at Skinny Legs, breakfast in the morning or pizza at night at Donkey Diner, a fresh lobster roll at Tourist Trap. Great swimming, snorkeling and hiking at: Salt Pond, Grootpan, Great & Little Lameshur, and Reef bay.

Incredible hiking through out the national park. Favorites are the Reef Bay hike and Ram Head.
