  • Wonderful family vacation

    "Our family of eleven had a terrific time here over Thanksgiving! Great views, quiet, peaceful surroundings and comfortable accomodations. The main level had a wonderful, well equiped kitchen and living/dinning space and huge outside deck for the whole family to gather. Our grandchildren lived in the pool and hot tub when we were not at the beach! There are outside stairs to get from one level to another which would probably be a challenge for disabled and elderly. The house Managers were extremely helpful and ready to assist us at a momment's notice! We rented jeeps for the week to visit all the local beaches and for trips to town, etc. It is isolated enough that one's own transportation is a must. No taxi's to Fish Bay!"

  • Just What the Doctor Ordered

    "At times, we need to take a break from the lives we are living, to slow down the pace a notch or two. Resonate for you? Then, look no further. This St. John villa is the balm to soothe your body and soul. Described as a romantic villa, which is most certainly true, this rental is a sensorial delight. Each aesthetic detail of this thoughtfully-decorated home, truly how you feel once you set foot inside, is beyond the advertised pictures. From the art on the walls to the fabric of the armchair upholstery to the cherry wood bathroom paneling, one feels pampered by the owners who take pride in their property, as well as respect you as a renter. The bamboo shades, the rooster-motif light plates, the leather-bound guest books, and the linen tablecloths and napkins pre-set on the dinette table are other special touches. Stocked shelves of varied genres of books and CDs were provided for our entertainment. Clean and well-maintained both inside and out- this villa is so lovely! As for the villa’s surroundings, it is nestled in a hill with magnificent views of lush vegetation. Sitting on the deck whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you will find yourself making friends with nature- looking out for your favorite bird whose visits are second only to those of the precious geckos who carry out their business without ever becoming a nuisance. The flowers and the brain coral sit nearby taking in the view alongside you. The owners of this fine property were most gracious, offering us their private pool as a change from swimming at the beaches. They provided a tome of information about what to do and where to go in the form of a well-organized binder of typed content, flyers, and maps. After perusing the materials they supplied, we found a visit to the ruins of the sugar plantation at Annaberg and a sampling of the conch fritters at a stand nearby most memorable. Beach hopping and hiking were also fun. Although the villa’s kitchen is well-stocked allowing for cooking and eating in which we did during our stay, some favorite meals were had at the Lime Inn and High Tide; the mahi-mahi at these restaurants can’t be beat! If you want to experience an exquisite tasting ice cream-try lavender honey vanilla at the homemade ice cream shop. Savoring my last mouthful, I thought about transporting this otherworldly treat home. I will just have to return along with the friends and family to whom I have recommended this wonderful getaway!"

  • Great home for our family trip!

    "We just returned from a week long stay in this beautiful home! It had everything we needed and then some! We were a party of eight ranging from 9 to 70 years young and this home was perfect! Plenty of room to spread out and expansive decks and kitchen/living room to all get together! Also, the view was amazing! It was a short drive to all the groceries/restaurants/shopping in Cruz Bay. Mark was excellent! He picked us up at the dock, took us to our rental car and then up to the house we went! We took full advantage of the grill, deck and pool! Our party of eight could fit comfortably in the pool and it was a great way to cool down in the evenings! We really enjoyed out time at Southern Exposure and can't wait to come back!"

  • Breath taking views, amazing breeze, luxurious and comfortable!

    "Our stay at Palm Villa on St. John was everything we hoped for. The well-appointed villa provided ample space for our family of 5. We never tired of the magnificent 180 degree view of the ocean, and the strong trade winds kept us sufficiently cool and refreshed on the veranda. Each of the three bedrooms and baths were equipped with air conditioning as well as ceiling fans, so sleeping was comfortable. The full kitchen, complete with microwave and dishwasher enabled us to prepare meals in the villa and enjoy them while marveling at the beautiful view from the veranda. Mosquitoes, at sunset, were easily kept at bay with repellent, and were certainly no worse than elsewhere on the island. The owner of the villa was very friendly, accommodating, and responsive to our requests and questions. The binder inside the villa included many well-thought out tips about what to see and do on the island. We enjoyed the company of Shamos, the owner's cute dog, who always seemed to know when breakfast or dinner was served! The drive up to the villa was a bit unnerving, but after a few times, it became less harrowing, and the privacy and views at the top certainly made it a worthwhile journey. We would highly recommend Palm Villa and were very impressed and pleased with the quality, beauty, and amenities it offered. We hope to return in the future."

There are two international airports found nearby, one on St. Croix and one on St. Thomas. Most often travelers to St. John route via St. Thomas. The Cyril E. King Airport is located on the southwestern side of St. Thomas. The airport hosts a variety of international and regional airlines.

Small, quaint cottages dot the hillside and offer guests amazing views out over the bay. Relax on the deck in a hammock with your favorite book and simply enjoy the view. If you need to get supplies, you can get a taxi to Cruz Bay where you will find a grocer. The US Virgin Islands are a favorite island destination for American citizens because there are no immigration or customs requirements.

Activities and Attractions near Fish Bay Villas

Because of its tropical location, St. John has some superb coral reefs. Some are quite shallow and can be easily accessed from the beaches. The best diving reefs can be reached by boat charter. There are several reputable diving companies on St. John that have daily dives scheduled when the weather permits. Divers can enjoy warm tropical water and great visibility as they explore colorful reefs amid thousands of reef fish.

Sailing charters are available from several of the marinas on St. John. This is a superb way to spend a lazy day. Cruise along the coastline and drop anchor off a secluded beach. Swim ashore or snorkel on the house reefs before returning to the yacht to sail back home.

Deep sea and sport fishing are popular pastimes in St. John. There are several well-equipped fishing charter operators that will take you out to the fertile fishing grounds of the Caribbean. Most excursions include lunch and refreshments.

Alternate ways of exploring the coastline are in a sea kayak or by hiking along one of the many coastal paths on the island. Many of the trails can be explored on your own but guides are also available if you are unsure of navigating your way. Horseback riding excursions take you to explore the interior of the island.

Best Time of Year to Visit USVI St John Vacation Rentals
