Stairway to Heaven -- Rendezvous by the Sea Villa

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Rendezvous by the Sea Villa is a wonderful three bedroom three and-a-half bathroom villa perched on the water in the Boatman Point neighborhood on the southwest shore of St. John, USVI. The sunrise will wake you up every morning and if you are lucky to be on island during a full moon, the moonrise is spectacular over Rendezvous Bay while eating a candlelit dinner on our screened veranda.

Rendezvous by the Sea is a convenient 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay but far enough away to feel like you are away from it all. Relax in the pool and look down at the reefs below you. You can actually see fish, turtles and stingrays from the pool deck--your own private aquarium! Follow the steps down to the beach below us and on a calm day you can snorkel or swim in the late morning/early afternoon. Return to the villa for a late lunch or early cocktails on the veranda.

The lush grounds around the villa are filled with local flora: papaya trees, white and pink oleander, coconut palms, juniper and jasmine. There are fun mosaics and eclectic artwork and prints throughout the inside and outside of the house. This is a beach house at its finest!

About Nancy Louis

We built RBTS in 1999 to 2000. Very much a labor of LOVE. We wanted a comfortable, waterfront beach house. Nothing fancy but it has all the amenities you could want. And some unique, fun stuff incorporated in it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! This is our third year in a row at Rendezvous by the Sea (and 8th coming to the island). This house is so spectacular from its incredible views to the screened proches, and beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms (the tiles are incredible). Sully (the dog) is an interesting new addition. He's very rambunctious and basically a big gallot. Chili Dog is sweet as can be and Baco made it to the top of the driveway one day. I tried to keep water in the bird baths but heard the sound of a large animal drinking from the bowl outside the master bath and expected see a wild animal - you guessed it ... it was Sully!

I'll repeat some recommendations we've made in previous book:

Best Beach: Francis

Best Dinners: Chateau Bordeaux and Stone Terrace

Best Burger: Skinny Legs

Best View for afternoon drink and coconut shrimp: Shipwreck Landing

Best Post Beach Painkiller: The Beach Bar

Best Place on the Planet: Rendezvous by the Sea

Thank you so much, See you next year!! M & K

Two weeks in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Rendezvous By The Sea has been our go to villa for our last 3 stays in St John. Located on Monte Bay, RBTS affords awesome, expansive views of Rendezvous Bay. This location is a short 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay. The neighborhood is quiet and conducive to relaxing by the pool surrounded by large deck space. The spacious screened in porch is a top feature. Wether its breakfast, lunch or dinner you'll find us eating there, mesmerized by the sounds of the surf below. There is access to a secluded rocky beach just below the villa. Experienced snorkelers will find vibrant reefs and ample sea your back yard!

Rendezvous By The Sea has all you need in a well equipped kitchen. A big screen TV, WiFi, games, puzzles, gas grill, coolers, washer, dryer, dishwasher, provide all the comforts of home. Nancy and John, the villa owners, are most accommodating. They are readily available should any problems arise. Never had any issues during our 3 stays.

Away from the villa, when venturing out, (and you must tour St John's numerous sites) we loved the sugar mill ruins, hiking trails, over 50 spectacular beaches and great restaurants and bars. Our favorites: Reef Bay Trail, Salt Pond, Drunk Bay, Francis and Maho Bays, Jumbie Beach, Joe's Rum Hut, Umami Bar and, well, so much more!
