Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family just returned from a wonderful summer stay at Villa Amorosa. St. John is one of our favorite retreats for swimming, snorkeling, diving and exploring and we wanted to take our children and grandchildren, a six month old and a twenty four month old.

Villa Amorosa was truly lovely with a great layout, luxurious amenities and spectacular views. While I think it was designed to accommodate four couples offering maximum privacy with private balconies and outdoor showers, it was perfect for all of us. We felt very comfortable with the layout for our young family. (The oversized closets in the two bedrooms of the main house became our small nurseries with a crib in each.)

The central North Shore location made trips to the beaches easy and the pool was always a nice place to come home to in the evening and enjoy our amazing view.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Amorosa is beautiful and spacious! The views are stunning. We cooked and ate most of our meals on the veranda and loved it.

We also liked being so close to the beaches. You could literally be at Trunk Bay in 2 minutes!

I would definitely consider staying here again.

Beautiful property - Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families visiting St. John for spring break week. Amarosa was just as the pictures showed - gorgeous view, well maintained, beautiful grounds. We have no complaints. It was perfect for our week vacation. The location is the best on the island, close to all the North Shore beaches yet conveniently close to town. St. John is a magical place and the villa takes full advantage of its surroundings. We are already dreaming up ways to make a return trip some day!

Incredibly Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Amarosa is a gorgeous property from the exceptional exterior design of a Tuscan Villa, beautifully landscaped, to the very appealing pool with lovely views of Peter and Cinnamon Bays. It had great privacy and both interior and exterior were exceptionally clean and well-maintained. The owners were very attentive.

Perfect Location- Heavenly Week!

  • 5 of 5

Amorosa has the top location on St John. You are just minutes away from all of the North Shore beaches including our favorite, Cinnamon Bay. The views are good with BVI islands in the background and the gorgeous turquoise waters to watch sailboats pass by. You are also a quick drive to Cruz Bay for dining and provisions. The home is clean, nicely decorated and equipped very well with everything you need to enjoy a week or more. This is the 4th villa we have rented on STJ and our favorite. I recommend dining at Asolare a few minutes drive from Amorosa before you enter Cruz Bay. The sunset is spectacular and the food and service even better. Such a nice intimate feel to this restaurant. Rhumb Line in Cruz Bay is also a must for dining every visit. The Szechuan Tuna and guava habanero margarita are amazing! If you want to get away from the tourist traps and boat to private interesting locations in the BVI or USVI contact Captain Wilson of Island Wilson Excursions. He will pick you up at Cruz Bay and whisk you away to someplace beautiful to snorkel, tour, swim or relax on a beach where no one is there but you! STJ is heaven to us. We brought a first timer couple this year and they already want us to book Amorosa for next year!

Great Week in St John

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples familiar with the BVI but new to St John. Great Villa....lots of thought went into it and no doubt a lot of money was put into it when built. Nemisy the villa concierge did a wonderful job of all our advance planning. She coordinated a private chef...met us at the ferry.. handled all our provisioning and hooked us up with the most punctual taxi driver (John) ever. The Villa was well stocked with everything we needed. Great kitchen. New grill and hammock. Great views from part of the pool deck and and one outdoor shower. Upon our departure a pair of shoes were left and the Villa manager found them and drove all the way to the ferry to get them to us. Great service by everyone.

We are sun people and wanted to hang outside overlooking the ocean. In January only part of the sun deck and pool are in the sun. Enough for two people to sun for a couple of hours. The blue cushions in the pictures are disgusting right now and need to be replaced. And some of the outdoor furniture just needs to be thrown out. In our opinion some of the palms and plants should be trimmed to allow for a better view of the great BVI. Apparently a new management team that we worked with just took over. If they are able to make some changes this can be a fabulous property. For this price of property some maintenance is needed. Please note that only one bedroom has an indoor shower. The others have great outdoor showers ( one with the best view in the Villa).

We loved the bars, restuarants and people of St John. We took day trips to JVD, Tortola, and Saba, and had a wonderful week. You cant go wrong on this island.

Amazing property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this amazing property. Great setup. Great location and perfect for our family. Our only suggestion would be to cut back the trees that block much of the million dollar view. If trees were trimmed, we would definitely go back.

Car: recommended

Amorosa Peter Bay is located right in the middle of perhaps the nicest of any Caribbean destinations. The National Park of St. John USVI covers over 2/3rds of the island and surrounds the property. Amorosa is also surrounded by many of the world's most fabulous white sand warm blue water beaches. Water sports are available at nearby Cinnamon Bay Beach. The Reef Bay trail to ancient petroglyphs, the ruins at Annaberg and Catherineberg, and Caneel Bay Resort are all nearby. Coral Bay is about a 15 minute car ride. Cruz Bay about ten minutes away offers many fine restaurants, duty free shops, and ferry connections to the BVI and St. Thomas.
