About the property

Sleeps 10, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms

Casa de Suenos is a 4 bedroom villa majestically perched on the mountain side over looking John’s Folly in Coral Bay, St. John. This home is elegantly furnished with private bedrooms at each corner, upstairs and downstairs. The gourmet kitchen features an island bar where the cook or chef can easily participate in conversation with others. Top of the line new appliances, spacious Corian countertops and beautiful cabinetry will delight your cooking needs. The sumptuous master suite has its own outdoor access down to the pool. Take in endless views of Johns Folly Bay, the East End of St. John as well as the British Virgin Islands. All four bedrooms in the main house feature fantastic views, air conditioning and tropical designer furnishings. Each bedroom has a private full bath. The aerial view from the great room is exhilarating!

The fifth bedroom is in a separate cottage with it's own kitchen and living space.

On a clear day it's possible to see Peter Island, Le Duck, Tortola and more, while listening to sounds of the surf down below. Nestled against the mountain, this stately villa is cooled by tropical breezes. The great room has beautiful seating, including a dining table that seats 8 and plush living room furniture. Amenities include state-of-the-art satellite service and flat screen t.v. The twin bedroom off the pool deck is private and comfortable. The twin beds can be made into a king-size bed. The other bedroom off the pool deck has a queen futon sofa bed. The tall, arched windows in the great room allow you to see the expanse of ocean and sky surrounding this island paradise. The spacious, one-bedroom guest cottage is located right next to the main house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The saying goes, “ Third times a charm” we agree! Our third time in St. John and we had the best vacation (away from all of the snowmaggedon in the northeast) We had wonderful weather and our days consisted of coffee time, beach time, lunch time, pool time, naptime dinner time and bedtime. Repeat Daily!!

We spent most of our beach time at Francis bay but if you go get there by 9-9:30 for easy parking. Snorkelling there was fun....ton of fish, but we had daily visits from the local nurse shark, sting rays, turtles and a couple of tarpon. Lunch/dinner at our favourite shipwreck and Skinny Legs for amazing burgers. Miss Lucys was a real disappointment will not return there .

Your lovely home was by far the most well equipped and comfy place we have rented. Little Hobie cat was quite the token and looks to be on the mend from a nasty encounter with another cat. We fed him well and will miss him.

Looking forward to another trip back.

Beautiful views at large hillside villa.

  • 5 of 5

I visited this house in march with two other couples. It was an amazing week, my wife and I wish we could have stayed longer. Its everything we wanted and more. The set up of the bedrooms and guest cottage worked quite well. I could see this house being perfect for large family gatherings. The downstairs rooms connect to a small play area. The master and guest suite are on either side of the kitchen. The guest house is down a floor next to the pool area. The house, patio, and rooms were excellently cleaned. That picturesque cliff view of the water in the morning will stay with me for a long time. I made sure the last day I got to see a sunrise from the patio, it was beautiful. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and they keep a well stocked pantry with all the spices and condiments you could need. We celebrated a birthday and it was a breeze cooking rib-eye steaks on the grill and they provide grill utensils. Appliances were on the newer side and in excellent working condition. The outdoor showers I think were one of my favorite parts. After a long day at pristine white sand beaches. It was a nice feeling to take a cool outdoor shower to clean up before dinner. The house is an incredible destination, but like any vacation on St John, it is up to you what kind of vacation to have. St John is a place to unplug, incredible beaches on the island, so much to explore. My favorite beach was a toss up between Trunk and Maho. I didn't get a chance to go hiking but that is on my list for next time. The local restaurants on the coral bay side offered good food for decent prices. I think Cruze bay eateries are over rated and so far away to not be worth the trek. No consistent cell service on the island, but why would you want it? At the house you could get connected if you wanted to, it has an internet phone for calls to the main land, and a local phone for calls on the island. Consistent Wifi connection in the kitchen, upstairs bedrooms, and patio. The one caveat is I would warn guests about the driveway, it is easy to miss and unpaved. It really isn’t a problem with the typical jeep wranglers people rent on the island. I plan on returning to this gem of an island. Remember you can’t drink all day on the beach, unless you start early.

Private Luxury Villa with Epic Views of Coral Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Casa De Suenos! We shared the villa with two other couples and our time together on the Island could not have been more magical. The villa is enormous, with a separate, private villa apart from the main house. We will definitely stay there again!

Casa De Suenos is immaculately maintained and the villa was clean as a whistle when we arrived. The listing description was not only accurate, but the villa far exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend that you stay at Casa De Suenos if you are planning a vacation on St. John...

We spent every morning and evening enjoying the spectacular views of Coral Bay, as well as the stunning sunrises and sunsets in the comfortable chairs on the enormous and well maintained outdoor patio.

This place tops our list of FAVORITE PLACES TO VACATION … EVER!

Casa De Suenos is cheerful with its tropical colors and comfortable, yet beautiful, furniture.

The kitchen was well-stocked and worked great for our group. We fully took advantage of cooking in the kitchen and enjoying Casa De Suenos!

The place has plenty of helpful books and brochures, and the laundry facilities were a definite plus.

Another bonus were the beach chairs, that we made use of every day at the beach.

And the pool after a day at the beach was the best place to hang out! Again … what a view!

The Coral Bay location is simply perfect. Our dining recommendations: Skinny Legs and AquaBistro.

Beach recommendations: Maho Bay, Cinnamon Bay and, our favorite, Trunk Bay.

Excursion recommendation: Cruz Bay Watersports to Jost Van Dyke.

See you soon St. John! We will definitely be back in 2018!

AMAZING VIEWS and very spacious!

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful villa for our group of 10 close family and friends. Stunning views and plenty of space for all of us. We enjoy the snorkeling opportunities and great restaurants on the east side of St. John. However I have to mention that the villa needs a little cleaning TLC and could use some new kitchen appliances. The refrigerator could not keep our food cold enough and the oven would not stay on while trying to bake a casserole. Bed and bath floors need good scrubbing and curtains in master bedroom need washing (very dirty and dusty). All in all we recommend this villa - especially after some extra cleaning and new kitchen appliances.
