Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) Vacation Rental

Welcome to 'I Delfini' on beautiful St. John, US Virgin Islands; the perfect choice for the discerning Caribbean traveler, seeking a taste of island living at its finest.

Our vacation rental is newly remodeled and stylishly furnished, offering spectacular views of the blue Caribbean, along with sunset performances that are frequently stunning.

Conveniently situated just 3 miles from the main town, we are also discretely off the beaten track to provide the perfect, peaceful respite for some R&R, island style.

We are fortunate in having a couple of pleasant beaches nearby. Additionally, we are surrounded by green space and just a short jaunt to National Park Service trail heads.

The idyllic setting, overlooking Fish Bay and a pristine nature reserve, takes full advantage of the islands natural amenities at their very best. Sleep to chirping Coqui frogs and wake to chattering Bananaquit birds. Don’t forget the breathtaking views from every angle!

The large private deck is a great spot for at home BBQ's or a happy hour cocktail after a day on the beach. Other comforts include free WIFI internet, newly renovated teak kitchen, gas grill and on-site parking. The kitchen was upgraded just a few years ago and the bathroom was remodeled in 2014.

Owner owned and operated, “I Delfini” will be everything you could hope for; an absolutely delightful (and WARM!) break from reality. You won’t be disappointed.

Happy Return Visitors!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned for our 2nd stay at I Delphini and were delighted with the changes/upgrades made to the apartment and deck! The bed was comfortable and with the air conditioning unit to cool the room before bedtime we slept very well! The deck is wonderful for appreciating island breezes, nature and beautiful views of Fish Bay. Katha & Vezio are friendly, knowledgable and shared fun information about things to see and do on the island. Our favorite restaurants were Rhumb Lines and Morgan's Mango. We snorkeled at several locations and we hiked to see the only Baobob Tree on St. John (they are usually found only in Africa). Katha & Vezio also know many of the local artists on the island. We were fortunate to attend an opening at the art gallery in Mongoose Junction and enjoyed visiting with the local people and artists.

We thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits! So if you are looking for a secluded hideaway to relax and enjoy nature yet close enough to many sites, activities and happenings, this is it! We know it won't be long before we visit again!

Quiet. Clean. WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed celebrating our 30th anniversary here. It was everything we expected. New air conditioner in the bedroom made sleeping very comfortable. Wifi made it possible for us to text with our cells. The view was spectacular. We will rent this place again for our next trip to St. John! Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great Stay in Fish Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our week at "I Delphini" which is located with great views of Fish Bay. Katha and Vezio are wonderful experienced hosts that shared insight regarding places on the island to visit and explore. The apartment was very private, spotless and nicely furnished. We got used to driving on the left and navigating the steep roads and driveway. On St John do not expect consistent phone service or internet as you are "on island time" and should just enjoy the beaches, rum drinks and surroundings. Best to Katha and Vezio as we hope to see them again in Fish Bay or possibly on one of their tours of the Umbria Region of Italy. Check out www.TourUmbria.com. Ciao - Nancy & Michael

Beautiful view and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This place is off the beaten path enough to feel secluded and private but is only a 10 minute drive to town. It had everything we needed and Katha and Vetsi were the perfect hosts. Wish we had booked a longer trip but we will be back!

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

So much to say about this wonderful, comfortable and well located apartment. It had everything one could need to make their stay exceptional. On a hill, above fish bay we had a beautiful view morning and evening. The large deck allowed for visiting, lounging and cooking on the grill. Katha brought sugar down one day, to put in the bird feeder and this brought hours of enjoyment watching 30 or40 darling yellow birds " bananaquit" feast away...another morning, one of these islands treasures perched on my husbands orange juice glass and was fearless as he enjoyed his early morning breakfast. The bed was quite comfortable and the quality furnishings were well suited to the environment. We would start the air conditioner in the bedroom about an hour before retiring and then shut it off for a restful night. It was warm and humid, but we are in the tropics....so enjoyed the breezes we felt with the sliding doors open and screens closed....and understand this is all part of enjoying our tropical vacation. Hosts were overly protective of our privacy, even calling on the phone before entering our "space". The very best part of our stay was the opportunity to share wine and cheese with Katha and Vezio who were extraordinarily attentive. We enjoyed them so much we invited them to share a day with us on the water, having rented a motorized dingy. We explored the bays and tooking time to hop in at various locations to cool off and enjoy snorkeling and they were great at pointing out information about the sights...can hardly wait to return...what a blast! Ps....we unfortunately had a mishap withour rental car, was clobbered by a hit and run driver....but Vezio worked with my husband to pull out the dent...now, that is going above and beyond!

I Delfini Rental

  • 5 of 5

This unit was a pleasure to stay in. Amenities included a spectacular view, very private, clean open studio apartment space, full kitchen, nice deck and balcony, quick access into Cruz Bay for supplies and really nice hosts.

Parking is a little tight but available for one guest's car. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. One night we shared a few drinks with Katha & Vesio which was fun since we learned more about the island and about their history with the house. We will go back to St John for sure and see no reason why we wouldn't book this same unit.
