About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 2-16)

540/848-0049 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, coffee maker, refrigerator, and balcony, offering panoramic views of Chocolate Bay, the Caribbean and a picturesque inlet that accommodates spectacular yachts, 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 private, white 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.

Come and enjoy this one of a kind, palatial, Mediterranean-style retreat, perched on a beautifully landscaped bluff overlooking a secluded bay on the island paradise of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

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 graphite counter tops.

Beautiful Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!

The houses were completely stocked and up to dateThe property is set in a dream location

  • 5 of 5

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

Loved our stay at Villa St. John!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing home for a destination wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful wedding week at Villa St John. It was a quiet place to have the wedding of our dreams. Thanks to Kim we were able to do all the planing online. She was able to recommend an amazing caterer and minister. The house had everything we needed for the week and there are several stores close to the home. The only complaint we would have is for the amount we paid for a week the beds were not very comfortable. We would defiantly stay again, maybe for our 5 year anniversary

Amazing Views and House!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

About Kim Ellsworth-Evans

We were married on St John and go back every year to celebrate our anniversary. We love to host rum tastings and have gotten to know some of the rum experts on the island. We have three daughters, two out of college and a 14 year old. She has grown up spending summers and weeks on St John.

Kim Ellsworth-Evans purchased this villa in 2004

Why Kim Ellsworth-Evans chose Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay

Chocolate Hole Bay is so private. I enjoy sitting on the deck with a good book, listening to the sound of the waves, and of course swimming in our pool. Since we are southern exposure the pool is quite warm! When I get tired of the pool, I meander down the steps to the beach and look for sea glass, or snorkel in Chocolate Hole Bay.

What makes this villa unique

The direct access to the beach is what sold me on the house. We went swimming in Chocolate Hole Bay one morning and as I looked up and realized I could be at the beach in 42 steps, I was sold.

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.
