Fish Bay villa description

Palm Vista is a sparkling clean island style villa situated 500 feet above sea level on the boundary of the national park. The 280 degree panoramic views are unparalleled on the south shore; providing views all the way to Ram Head and sunrises in the east, looking south into Reef Bay, Fish Bay and Rendevous Bay, and to the west for great sunsets. The site gives you the ultimate in privacy, yet you are close enough to hear the gentle sounds of the surf below.

Palm Vista just received Trip Advisor’s “Award of Excellence' for 2014 plus the Best Villa Rental” Award for 2013.
Plus, Luxury Retreats International has rated Palm Vista as 1 of the top 10 view villas in the world! http://news.luxuryretreats.com/January_2013/newsletter/index.asp

I have the best maid on the island, so you will find the villa VERY CLEAN. The sparkling pool is also professionally cleaned at least once a week.

The vaulted ceiling Great Room constructed of native stone walls and travertine marble floors, has 20' wide sliding glass doors to the south providing a great ocean view with screens for you to enjoy the cooling trade winds. The French doors to the east provide for more ocean and pool views. The large new sectional couch provides comfortable seating and the new Sony 40' flat panel TV is connected to satellite as well as DVD. There is also a bar and stools; perfect for entertaining.

Each of the three central air conditioned bedroom suites has their own luxury bath, with Walter Zanger tiled vanities trimmed in mahogany. Plenty of shelving for easy living, plus large travertine showers. Each bedroom has wonderful ocean views!

The main level has a large Veranda which wraps around the south and east of the home, covered in coraltile and amply furnished for relaxing and dining. The views from the veranda are too good to describe - this is where you will spend your time, enjoying the cooling trade winds. The veranda flows to the pool deck, also covered in beautiful natural coral stone.

Just 5 years old, Palm Vista was completed with loving care as you will see, from the hand made pottery light fixtures, the detailed tile work, the beamed ceilings to the star fish adorned bulkheads no detail was spared. Come and experience the paradise of Palm Vista!

Rent from 1 to 3 bedrooms;Priced accordingly. If you have a need for a 4th bedroom, you can rent the Guest Suite on the property next door; contact owner for more details.

A rental car will be required for your stay. 2 or 4 door 4WD Wrangler is recommended; not because you will use 4WD, but Jeeps sit higher off the ground making maneuvering the hills and turns on St John easier.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Hi, my name is Michael Krienik and I invite you to share the wonderful paradise of St John. I first discovered St John 30 years ago via a cruise to St Thomas with a short snorkel junket to Trunk Bay Beach. I was hooked. In March of 2003 I purchased land, some say its the best lot on the whole south side of the island, with its 280 degree breathtaking ocean views. I completed Palm-Vista Villa in August of 2009 as a place where guests can truly enjoy the best St John has to offer. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have about my villa or St John in general.

                      Why the Owner Chose Fish Bay:
                      I spent an entire week, 8 hours a day, on the island looking at every parcel of land available. In the end, the panoramic views, the cooling trade winds, the privacy, the gentle sounds of the surf, the views of three different bays, the sunrise and sunset...I was not able to find anything that compares.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      There's nothing like waking up to the sunrise over the ocean...the morning golden sun reflects on the gleaming white posts of the veranda....great place to enjoy your morning cup of Joe. To see all the undisturbed land in the National Park and the rugged coast line...breathtaking. Same goes for the beautiful sunsets....perched high atop skytop you can see into 4 bays and all the way top St Croix on a clear day.
