Property description

St. John is as close as a person can get to living on an unspoiled island in the Caribbean. It is a tropical paradise in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The ultimate of all St. John villa rentals by owner, Softwinds offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of all of St. John, and the sparkling turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea which surrounds it.

It is the perfect St. John vacation. The Softwinds private villa sits at the apex of a hilltop in the Fish Bay estate, looking out towards the islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas, as well as across the Reef Bay, which is right next door to this spectacular St. John villa rental property.

This lovely St. John rental house has four bedrooms, and comfortably sleeps up to eight people. Each room is decorated comfortably, with pretty shuttered windows and contemporary furnishings. There are also three full bathrooms, a comfortable main living room, and a full kitchen, stocked with everything needed to make delightful family meals. Visit St. John, and sit on one of the shaded decks at Softwinds, admiring the stunning view.

Another highlight of St. John holidays at the Softwinds Caribbean private villa is the private pool, snuggled into the house courtyard; a refreshing escape in the heat of the day. If guests would like surfing or snorkeling on St. John, it is just a short walk down to nearby Reef Bay Beach, where the entire ocean is available as a playground.

The U.S. Virgin Islands are a great place for nature walks and hikes, and the Virgin Island National Park next door has dozens of trails, each as beautiful as the next. The park covers more than 60 per cent of this small island, and hiking trails lead along the coastline, past ancient petroglyphs, and among the factory ruins of the Annaberg Sugar Mill. The park is a top attraction on any St. John vacation.

If guests prefer a relaxing day at home on their trip to St. John, the Softwinds vacation villa has two televisions with cable service, a DVD player and board games and books. There is also internet service, for guests who need to stay connected.

Softwinds is a great luxury vacation rental choice for families, for couples or even for groups of friends traveling to St. John. The full kitchen means convenience and savings, not to mention the comfort of a home-like setting. Adults will love the unobstructed views out over the ocean, and the quiet decks where someone can sit for hours and sip a glass of wine, or watch the sun set. Children will love the great nature walks, the beach, not to mention their own private swimming pool.

Whether your ideal St. John vacation involves learning about history, body surfing on the beach, going for a great nature walk or hanging out at home and relaxing, this unrivaled luxury villa is the perfect choice. While you have many options to choose from among all the St. John villas for rent, Softwinds feels just like home, with everything you need available and views that seem to go on forever.

* Softwinds cannot be rented to groups with children under age 6 for safety reasons.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: Welcome to Tropical Island Retreats. We have been owners and operators of luxury Caribbean villas since 1998. We serve a discerning travel clientele, who expect only the highest quality of service and ambiance. I myself am a real-estate professional, writer, and part time Caribbean resident. I love this part of the world, and hope you can share in that passion through the beautiful homes we own and operate. My objective is to make sure you can enjoy an extraordinary vacation at an exceptional property.

Why Fish Bay:
We were drawn to Softwinds in 1999 because of its breathtaking ocean and island views, and one of a kind location on the beautiful island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands. We made this property our first purchase in the Caribbean, and have been returning ever since.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Softwinds is located on the highest bluff in the Estate Fish Bay neighborhood of St. John, US Virgin Islands. In addition to uninterrupted views of the Caribbean ocean, St. Croix and St. Thomas USVI, the property also possesses pristine views of St. John's Reef Bay and national parks, which will always be preserved.
