About Villa St John 540/848-0049
Completed renovated post Irma. Come and enjoy Villa St John, a one of a kind, palatial, Caribbean-style retreat, perched with private stairs to secluded Chocolate Hole bay on the island paradise of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Find us on the web.
A dream come true, this stunning villa welcomes you with gentle tropical breezes, warm and delicious sunlight to bathe in, sweet floral scents of the tropics and the soothing music of waves caressing the white-sand beach below. Villa St. John is one of only a few beachfront villas on this exclusive eight mile stretch of utopia.
Stunning, warm and welcoming, the grand villa is comprised of four bedroom suites and the honeymoon villa of two bedroom suites. Both the grand and honeymoon villas have their own living and dining room areas and newly renovated kitchens with rich mahogany cabinetry and granite counter tops.
One of Villa St. John’s most unique features is that all of the six bedrooms are 650 square foot master suites (the largest on the island), each with their own 2 person jacuzzi, walk-in closets, refrigerator, and balcony, offering panoramic views of Chocolate Bay, the Caribbean and a picturesque inlet that accommodates spectacular boats, a pristine beach and the rhythmic sound of lapping waves of crystal clear water from the Caribbean.
Enjoy a dip in the warm, clear turquoise sea of the villa’s sand beach or swim in the crystal water of the villa’s swimming pool, its deck splashed with casual outdoor furniture for sunbathing or entertaining. Enjoy the sunset over St. Thomas as you sit in the jacuzzi, have cocktails on the deck of the outdoor dining area, or relax on your room’s private balcony, all of which provide the perfect setting to watch the sun sink below the horizon over the sparkling bay and the blue-green Caribbean, or rise to announce a spectacular new day in paradise at dawn.
The villa complex is ideal for weddings, reunions, family get-togethers, a romantic island escape, honeymoons or for simply relaxing island-style and is the perfect launch for island adventures such as kayaking, hiking, shopping in Cruz Bay, snorkeling, scuba diving or deep-sea fishing.
For those who simply are unable to leave their work at home, Villa St. John is equipped with wireless internet access, printer and fax.

Where can we begin? We booked Villa St John pre-hurricane season 2017. We watched in horror as two hurricanes hit the USVI's in September and held our breath in hopes that our family surprise "trip of a lifetime" would be able to proceed. With a party of 12 (comprised of six couples) Villa St John was the place we wanted to be. We worried and prayed. But oh my, when we arrived on April 7th, the faith payed off. The villa is stunning. Everything is new from the impressive roof with copper trim, beautiful new colour, travertine surround pool, hot tubs, bedrooms, and tasteful decorations, it provides a sense of calm from the moment you enter the property. Having a main villa with four bedrooms, living room and kitchen plus "little villa" with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, it was the perfect accommodation for our group. The views are spectacular, the beach very private, and the location at Chocolate Hole makes it very close to Cruz Bay for travel to town for wonderful dinners. St. John has, once again, won our hearts. Kim and on-site manager Jared have accomplished a stunning feat in refurbishing this beloved villa beyond its initial state. I could only imagine how perfect this setting would be for a wedding. A piece of my heart remains on the island as I write this one day post-vacation. And to Kim and Jared .... thank you for your hard work in making our dream vacation come true. You have given us a very special gift and we will forever be grateful.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. We worked incredibly hard on improving every detail of the villa to create a location that would be the perfect base for lifelong memories.
I own it so I might be biased!
We just spent two weeks putting the finishing touches on the villa after a complete renovation post-Irma. The villa has never looked better and I still maintain Chocolate Hole is the quietest best beach on the island.
Everyroom has a king bed and queen sleeper sofa or daybed. The rooms feel huge and I retreated many times to the solitude on my deck when construction overwhelmed me.
We planned the new deck with an eye to weddings and I believe we have succeeded way beyond my wildest dreams.
The houses were completely stocked and up to dateThe property is set in a dream location
This house is set on a chunk of St. John that accommodates large parties and allows for some of the best smirking on the island
It is stocked with twice what you need and the pool is set up to allow for some great volleyball
Our tenth stay on the island and by far the best accomodations
Thank you so much for the nice review...we are delighted that you enjoyed our villa.
We think it is a dream location as well!
P.S. I believe he was referring to snorkeling not smirking :)
Beautiful Home in Paradise
From the moment you walk into the main villa and look over the main entry balcony you feel like throwing up your fist and saying "Yes!". After the flight, journey across St. Thomas and the boat ride you feel like you've made it to your haven. The view of the bay is absolutely beautiful! The rooms were very well appointed and large. Plenty of room to spread out. The bathrooms and closets are very roomy as well. The mini fridges in each bathroom were nice too! The kitchen comes equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals which was nice because we did do quite a few meals in. The outside areas off the living room and down by the pool deck were great for relaxing in the morning with your coffee or for drinks in the evening. We loved the hot tub down by the pool at night. The iguanas love the pool deck as well but we enjoyed sharing the space with them. If you don't bother them, they won't bother you! It was also very cool to be able to walk down the stairs to the beach. The guys in our group went out spear fishing in the bay one morning. They didn't have much luck but they had fun! We also had our wedding reception here and it was perfect for 50+ people! The only suggestion I would make is that there are no full length mirrors in neither the main or guest house. Ladies like to see their full reflections before going out to dinner or on their wedding day ;-). Overall though, the place was perfect for our 15 person family!! Our two couples with 3 small children between them stayed in the guest villa which was perfect for everyone. No one felt afraid of waking up the kids at night and they didn't worry about waking us up in the morning! Also, Jared the Villa manager was very helpful and attentive to our needs. Thank you Jared!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are delighted your wedding and vacation was a success and that Villa St John could be part of that.
Loved our stay at Villa St. John!
We got married on the island and had the reception back at the villa... it was perfect for the size of our party! The layout of the rooms also worked perfectly for our guests. We invited couples and with each room set up as a suite - it couldn't have been any better. The owner and management company were super helpful and so great to work with too! We would definitely come back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay.
We are delighted the wedding and reception went off without a hitch. I am also grateful for the positive review. Thank you for enjoying our home.
Amazing Views and House!
We just returned from Spring Break 2017. We stayed at Villa St John with 2 other families and we had the most wonderful stay.
First, the owner was so responsive to any questions I had prior to the trip. Then two weeks prior to arrival the property manager, Jared contacted me to set up picking us up at the ferry and checking to see if there was anything special we needed. Jared was great! Met us and stayed in contact while we were in St John.
The House! Well, the the house itself is beautiful. Loved that every room had its own master bath! The beds were very comfortable. The views were amazing!! I loved having my morning coffee on the balcony and enjoying the views. The pool and two hot tubs were great too!
I would definitely love to go back to this home!
Thanks so much for making our trip so wonderful!!!
Villa St John is situated on beautiful Chocolate Hole Bay..home to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Rent a boat and arrange to be picked up in Chocolate hole...afterwards walk up the stairs and jump in the crystal clean pool! Finish your day with drinks in the 88 jet Spa!
