About Scott

We are both self-employed and live in freezing Minnesota and love to head to St. John to enjoy the warmth of the Caribbean weather. We love to travel, have been to Mexico many times, Hawaii, and Amsterdam, but fell in love with St. John.

Scott purchased this villa in 2011

Why Scott chose St John

We have been coming to the USVI and BVI (sailing) for many years and found St. John to be our favorite caribbean island. We took our time searching for the right property and had to seize the opportunity to purchase Heavenly Villas. Now we are 'living the dream'... well, sometimes, when we get to stay at Heavenly Villas!

What makes this villa unique

Heavenly Villas is located above Cruz Bay with western views that provide some awesome sunsets. We are always striving to add those special touches to Heavenly Villas and hope you will enjoy it there as much as we do. St. John is a wonderful island and a great place to visit. You can have a relaxing, romantic vacation, or bring your family and enjoy all the great hiking trails, beaches, snorkeling, and much more. We know there are many options when choosing a villa on St. John and hope you choose Heavenly Villas. We have put a lot of thought into the details and hope our guests have a great, 'don't worry, be happy' vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We just left your villa today and we had a wonderful time.

The view from the terrace is really great! Each morning and each evening it was a pleasure to watch sunrise and sunset.

Thanks again for this wonderful week in St. John.

On the Coast of Somewhere Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Heavenly Villas was the perfect place for our family. We were greeted promptly at the ferry dock by Rachelle and she took us to get our rental car and escorted us to the villa. I would recommend 4x4 car as the last hill to the house is quite steep. Our jeep handled it with ease! This was our 5th time in St. John but 1st time at Heavenly Villa. We loved the short drive to Cruz Bay. The view from Heavenly is priceless both in the morning with a cup of coffee and evening with a cocktail from the tiki bar. The villa was spotless upon arrival and well maintained with fresh propane. It was nice that beach chairs and coolers were available for us to use as well. We "do our own ting" in the islands since we have been so many times. Favorite beaches are Maho and Francis Bay. Paddle boarded with sea turtles and sting rays at both. Unique beach is Salt Pond and Drunk Bay and we always enjoy an afternoon there. We got groceries at St. Johns Market and Pine Peace and cooked many dinners at the villa on the grill. Our favorite bar was Beach Bar and Barefoot Cowboys. Rented Kayak and paddle boards at Cinnamon Bay and took them to Maho. I would recommend taking the ferry to Jost VanDyke for the day and enjoying the sights at Soggy Dollar. There are excursions that eventually end up there but since we have done those we now just go to Soggy and spend the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Heavenly Villas and highly recommend this villa. Until our next visit we will listen to our Kenny Chesney CD and think of being "On the Coast of Somewhere Beautiful! "

The views from the villa deck are awesome! St. Thomas looked especially beautiful at night. The sliding doors open up completely so you can even see the views from inside. And we could see St. Croix from the pool area. We spent many hours at the pool (where they just got new furniture!)

We cooked and grilled several meals in, and the villa had everything we needed. The temperature in the villa was easy to control thanks to the shade for the sliding doors, the fans, and the air conditioning in the bedrooms.

The island was full of life. We snorkeled at a different beach every day and each had its own unique beauty and sea life. We saw turtles, nurse sharks, parrot fish, barracudas, squids, and many colorful fish. We had great food and drink at bars and restaurants all over the island. Some of our favorites: Sam and Jack's Deli, Miss Lucy's, Skinny Legs and Cafe Roma. And you can't beat the location and atmosphere of The Beach Bar. One of our favorite experiences was swimming out to Angel's Rest floating bar!

Everyone on the island was very friendly. We definitely plan to return and will stay at Heavenly Villas again!

We loved everything about our stay at Heavenly Villa; It was the perfect home for the week for our family of three. The management company was very attentive and accommodating. Although we did not need their service, they made it known that they were available to assist with anything we needed. The Villa is exactly as the video portrays. It was immaculately clean and comfortable. It is supplied with all of the basic essentials that you need. We did not make full use of the kitchen and outside grill...too many exceptional dining spots in Cruz Bay! My daughter absolutely loved the comfy complimentary slippers!

The villa is in a perfect, secluded location in the Upper Deck area and the view is breath-taking ... such beautiful sunsets! Just open the large sliding doors and your living space is doubled to the outside deck. It is stunning to see all the nature!!!

We had great use of the beach chairs and beach towels visiting the many beautiful beaches on St John. Jeep rental is a must. The pool is only a short walk away and we had it completely to ourselves the few times we visited.

We would definitely visit again!

If you like gorgeous views, bird and animal watching, and leaving your cares behind, then this is the place for you! St. John's may have been your destination choice because of its stunning beaches, laid back island time, and fantastic nightlife, but you must add staying at Scott's place for the icing on the cake. Everything you thought you'd need and more. This place can't be beat for location, comfort, and bliss.

Perfect Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

This January was our first trip to St John and we couldn't have been more pleased with our entire stay. The property management company was incredibly friendly, helped us book some excursions and was there for any questions we may have had about the island. Like other reviewers state, a Jeep is a must as the hills around the island are something special. Additionally, we'd recommend spending a little extra on a 4-door Wrangler instead of a 2 door as it will make your day so much easier toting everything back and forth from the house. Now back to those hills.... If you were expecting to wake up and head out of the house for a quick run, I'd say you may want to reevaluate. The house is at the top of a number of narrow and windy hills. While this provides for the most beautiful views of the island, it is not conducive for runs! Instead, opt for yoga on the veranda overlooking the spectacular Cruz Bay in the morning as a way to kick of your day!

The house had everything we needed for our days exploring the beaches (ie beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers and towels). We found our favorite beach to be Cinnamon as it's the quintessential tropical beach. Snorkeling at others was better - but we found ourselves battling bugs (no-seeums) at some of the other beaches. And on that note, BRING BUG SPRAY if you plan to be on the beaches after 3pm...and then cortizone cream as well. While bugs were a problem at the beaches, they never bothered us at the house

Additionally, due to the close proximity of the house to downtown Cruz Bay, we found ourselves dining out every night and exploring different restaurants. Overall, we couldn't say enough good things about this villa. It was clean, we felt safe, had everything we needed and had the most spectacular views to look at at every day. Thanks so much Scott and Terri! We hope to be back next year!
