Great Cruz Bay villa description
Villa Adagio is a unique luxury vacation home on the South West side of the beautiful island of St John. Its hillside location offers spectacular views of Great Cruz Bay, Pillsbury Sound and the hills of St Thomas and St James in the distance.
Upon entering the villa, the first thing you notice is the striking indoor pool under sky lights. It is all framed by the breathtaking view through the floor to ceiling sliding windows. Walk through the big room onto the spacious deck, grab a lounge chair and a cool drink and watch the sailboats drift by. Or simply relax in the jacuzzi. The villa's hospitable great room offers luxurious comfort. A modern kitchen features bamboo and mahogany cabinetry with granite counters. The formal dining area reflects the fine eye for detail carried throughout this villa. All 3 air conditioned bedrooms contain a seating area furnished with unique accents as well as a spacious bathroom, 2 of which have outdoor showers. One bedroom is accessible from the driveway as well as from the deck, but can be locked. A beautiful tropical backyard offers outdoor dining by the fountain.
In just a short driving distance is the town of Cruz Bay with lovely shops, wonderful restaurants and access to all kinds of water sports. Glorious, world acclaimed beaches are just minutes away. Snorkeling, para-sailing, hiking, it's all right here.
The best part of the island is that it is 2/3 national park, so it is unspoiled tropical forest, absolutely gorgeous.
Come see for yourself... you won't regret it! Paradise is awaiting you. We welcome you to Villa Adagio.

I think we fell in love with Villa Adagio when we walked through the door and saw the inside pool with Great Cruz Bay in the background. Instantly we relaxed and each day was fabulous! It is a spectacular property, and also comfy and inviting. Not too far from town, but very private and quiet. This is where we want to be when visiting St John again!

Perfect in every way
Perfect in every way
We were amazed with the beauty from the second we stepped on St John. Our greeter was friendly and helpful and.acquired our rental vehicle with ease. We were surprised how spectacular the house was when we arrived. We loved having the doors open with warm Caribbean breezes during the day and we only used the air when we slept at night.The owner supplied us with tons of great local info and knowledge and we brought it with us daily when we embarked on our adventures.The decor was perfect and furnishings were very plush The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking breakfast everyday and several dinners. The indoor pool was perfect to cool off in after our fantastic long day's out. We couldn't have imagined a better home, location or place to have spent our vacation. We can't wait to go back!!

Beatiful, but very hot view.....
Beatiful, but very hot view.....
Could Not ask for a better view. Morning coffee was great. Home too Hot for us. We keep our AC on about 71 at home and the house was about 88 in the evening with the sun cooking on the windows. We figured out timing of the AC in bedroom and closed off the bath and Sun Room. Kids loved the pool. We prefer AC. Could not cook in the home so we had to go out each night.Did not know one room was accessible from outside the house. We have young kids. The other home we considered did communicated this and it had FULL AC. Beds were very comfortable.

Owner response: We've stayed at the house many times during the summer months and never had a problem. If the sliding doors on all sides are kept open, the skylights open and the ceiling fans on, there is a nice breeze going through the great room that keeps it comfortable. I appreciate the comment about the downstairs room being accessible from the driveway, I had not thought about that and have put that in the description.

Villa Adagio offers the best of everything in St. John. Wonderful views, every night we had a spectacular sunset. Indoor pool is by far the most romantic - the outdoor spa is like no other! Felt so relaxed during our stay was just waiting for Jimmy Buffett and Tommy Bahama to walk in - furnishings all top end, felt like a princess. Will return to Adagio for many years to come, this place rocked!

6 great items 1) Great management: met us at the ferry. Attentive and available to our needs. Provided us disposable towels for the last day when we had checked out. 2) Wonderful Villa: Large place, top-notch furnishings 3) Indoor Pool & Outdoor Hot-tub: due to mosquitos, sun, and cleanliness this is the best possible setup (despite my initial desires for outdoor pool) 4) Great view 5) Private bedrooms on opposite ends of villa 6) Location: ideal place to be, close to north shore beaches and town/restaurants

Our stay at Villa Adagio was everything we expected and more. The property was every bit as beautiful as the on-line photos and description. We were greeted by an employee of Catered Too right at the car barge and immediately escorted to the villa. It was very clean and supplied with everything we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable vacation. The air conditioning in my daughters room was not working properly and all we needed to do was make a call and it was repaired the very next day. The accommodations were inviting and it was so nice to call it home for our week in St. John. We would recommend the villa for anyone wanting to stay in a private home on the island. We had a great time at Woody's and a delicious dinner at the Fish Trap. We would also recommend Uncle Joe's barbeque. For a great sandwich, stop in at Sam and Jacks deli. If you travel to Coral Bay try Skinny Legs for a burger or Miss Lucy's for a Reuben sandwich made with grouper. Gibney Beach is also a must, it's a beautiful beach but get there early for a parking spot. We are hoping to come to the wonderful island of St. John again next summer.

Everything about this place is amazing -- it is truly one of a kind. The views are absolutely stunning, hard not to love watching the sun go down while relaxing in the jacuzzi. I have amazing memories of my trip here and hope to have the chance to go back again one day!

Can't recomend it enough! Superb vacation villa.
I can't recommend this place highly enough. It's amazing. Every room has a spectacular view of the bay. Every nook has an overstuffed chair more comfortable than the last. The bedrooms are beautiful and spacious, the main room---well, it has a pool in it, enough said---and the deck, which runs the entire length of the house, is lined with plush lounge chairs and an outdoor hot tub to boot. When we arrived, the place was so clean it looked like it was brand new. (The only evidence that anyone had stayed there before was the guest book full of gushing reviews.) The owners were accommodating and helpful, and the local maintenance people were remarkably responsive. All in all, a fantastic property and a dream vacation.

Guest comment entered by owner
We went to St. John for the first time last year and absolutely loved it! We were so in awe of the natural beauty of the island AND of lovely Villa Adagio! Your home is stunning and was a perfect location for our get away. We enjoyed a few dinners that we prepared ourselves in the beautifully appointed kitchen....Villa Adagio was perfect for entertaining! We loved the pool in the living room and the spectacular views of the bay! Thank you for such a memorable vacation, we can't wait to come back!

I have stayed at Villa Adagio three times now - and can't wait to go back. The house is so perfect for vacation. A great kitchen for cooking and the house is set up for entertaining. The house is beautifully decorated (the photos barely do it justice!) - and each bedroom is like its own mini-suite. It set up on a hill and so quiet at night and the view of the bay from the gorgeous deck is second to none. I highly recommend this property!!

About the owner: We live in Manhattan Beach, CA. We have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren, hoping for a few more grandchildren in the future! Skip is CEO/Chairman of a magazine publishing company and also produces consumer shows. He has offices all over the country so travels a lot. Paula joins him when she can. When it's time to relax, we head to the beautiful island of St John. We love it and are sure you will too. See you there!
Why the Owner Chose Great Cruz Bay:
We chose St John because of its gorgeous, world acclaimed beaches and its seclusion. It is 2/3 national park which is protected and cannot be developed, so the island will never be overpopulated. The locals are very friendly and welcoming. The island offers wonderful, upscale restaurants as well as cozy, casual eateries. We love to go sailing, snorkeling and just relax on the beach, enjoying spectacular views. Everywhere you go on this island, you will be astounded at the breathtaking vistas, it is truly paradise!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We fell in love with the view and then built the house. The view is truly spectacular. We furnished the house for us, making it a home away from home, not a 'rental'. It is a very comfortable, yet elegant home. We have picked top of the line, tasteful and lovely furniture and accents. The linens are of superior quality, the dishes and glassware are beautiful, even the beach towels are extra large and soft. Come see for yourself!
