Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9). Discounts for less than 4 bedrooms.

CLICK on the video link upper left in the photo of the pool on the home page. A video says a thousand words!!! You can use "book it now" button AND/OR I am happy to talk to you personally.

In the category of the ocean view homes/villas on St John, Blue Agave Villa has location, location, location! There are discounts for the use of less than 4 bedrooms. Blue Agave Villa was completed in late 2009 on the best lot in Chocolate Hole. Blue Agave Villa has unparalleled privacy and A+ class ocean views! Our bedrooms are unexpectedly spacious with large ensuite bathrooms. Blue Agave was designed by a famous St John architect with outdoor living in mind by encompassing the pool and HUGE white travertine decks as the focal points of the modern island style villa.

A fabulous fact is that Blue Agave is on the sunny, dry, SOUTH side of St. John. It is low enough to hear the waves in Hart Bay, but high enough to have a 150 degree spectacular ocean view. Last year, a family friend arrived in darkness. In the morning we found her crying with happiness on the deck, sobbing that she had never seen such a breathtaking view.

The view from Blue Agave is of four St John bays from Hart Bay to Cruz Bay and the islands of Pillsbury Sound to the west. In the distance you will be able to see St. Croix and St. Thomas.

Year round spectacular sunset viewing on the pool deck is one the many pleasures awaiting you. Our family routine is that we are always home for sunsets and the ohhs and ahhs they bring.

The romantic twinkling lights of St Thomas will bedazzle you and your loved ones at night while you sip drinks, chat , and play games under the fans of the outdoor gallery. Our villa faces into the gentle, cooling trade winds.

Relax on the deck with a drink in your hand while you watch boats sail in the azure waters. From the extremely spacious deck, the sun arcs across the Caribbean Sea giving you ALL DAY sun at the pool. The two covered gazebos allow a choice of sun or shade at any time of the day. The view is magnificent from any spot.

The air conditioned bedrooms are unexpectantly large and beautifully decorated. Each room has a spacious in suite bath with a large architectural designed walk in shower. There are 3 king beds (one of which can be converted to two twins) and one queen bed. The mattresses are new and comfortable. Large windows allow for great airflow and views from every room.

The kitchen has the amenities that you have in your home. We dine in more than we dine out, since we have a better view than any restaurant on St John. We enjoy the casual dining style of grilling fresh fish on the deck while we visit with each other.

The owners of Blue Agave enjoy tropical plants and flowers. You will be delighted by the color and floral fragrances of Frangipani and Jasmine. Look for orchids in the trees. Other flowers include allemande, heliconia, Cinderella flower, bird of paradise, bougainvillea, red jatropha, dropping tears, hibiscus, ixora, and ginger to name a few.

Three large coconut trees give privacy from the dead end road to the pool, so that you can enjoy the pool in total privacy. Our lot is huge with magnificant landscaping. You cannot see any neighboring homes from the villa. Blue Agave will provide a relaxing romantic vacation for two and yet can accommodate a very small family event such as a wedding or reunion. Neighboring homes can be rented for additional guests.

St John is a friendly, laid back island. 'Chillin' is the term used for relaxing here. Blue Agave Villa is so self-contained that you can enjoy being holed up in the villa poolside for days enjoying rest, rejuvenation and relaxation. (The closest grocery store is 2 minutes away.) When you do venture out, the beaches, world famous snorkling, and restaurants will delight you.

We have wireless internet and are located so that we have US cell phone service. Due to the terrain, this is rare on the island.

You can be away, but be connected.

Enjoyment is ready to be had at Blue Agave Villa, St John in America's Paradise! Please read our guest reviews.

About Debra Layne

We have been in Colorado since 1977 and have had a very rewarding life here. We have raised two great sons and enjoy living in the foothills outside of Boulder.

Debra Layne purchased this villa in 2006

Why Debra Layne chose Cruz Bay

We first went to St Thomas/St John in 1978 and had a enjoyable time especially on 'Tony's Taxi'. We returned to St John for a week at Cinnamon Bay with our sons. Everything about our trip was excellent. The lovely beaches, great snorkeling and water sports, and the taxi driver who gave us a tour of the island made our visits the best vacations ever. For the past 7 years we have been visiting friends on St John and decided that we should be a part of the island. The island is so safe and the locals are welcoming.

What makes this villa unique

The Sunsets are incredible. A green flash can be seen when it sets on the water. We enjoy being outdoors, so the villa is designed to enjoy the breathtaking ocean views while swimming, reading, sunning, dining and relaxing. Visiting the beaches, Mahi sandwiches at Skinny Legs, the Full Moon party at Miss Lucy's and seeing our friends on island makes the trip to St John worth traveling all the way from Colorado.

Paradise at the Blue Agava Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the Blue Agave and yes, we would still return again. The Villa has a way of taking you out of your normal daily grind and putting you in a place of peace and tranquility. You can't help but relax and take in the beauty of St. John and it's surroundings. Your Villa is the whole package. From booking to check-out, everything is well organized, efficient, and top notch. Our group was at the Blue Agave for Valentine's Day 2017, and Debra Layne made a suggestion of going to ZoZo's for dinner. We not only had dinner, but we did their Sunset Sail package. Thank you Debra for the wonderful recommendation. It was truly a fantastic experience! The rest of the week each of the 4 couples took turns in the kitchen. The Villa's kitchen had everything we needed to make exquisite meals, down to the fancy dinnerware to plate our creations. While one couple was slaving in the kitchen the other couples took a dip in the relaxing pool or lounged by the beautiful poolside and enjoyed a cool beverage and appetizers. Nothing can top enjoying our wonderful creations in the kitchen, than to enjoy them while watching the sunset and its ever changing beauty each night. Weather was perfect, beaches were beautiful, abundant, and unique in their own ways. Hiking was enjoyable and the locals were very friendly and helpful. All around the Blue Agave is Paradise!

Comfortable, nice views

  • 4 of 5

Blue Agave was very homey and we found all the amenities we would expect a home to have; from bag clips to freshwater hose and nozzle to guide books. We enjoyed finding the iguanas in the trees each morning and had several beautiful "moonsets." The outdoor space suited us well and the kids took an evening swim most nights. It's clear the owners enjoy St. John and that Blue Agave is not just rental property for them. The deck space was very nice compared to some of the other rental homes that just have a big rectangle of tile around a rectangular pool. AC in the bedrooms were a necessity during our July rental, ceiling fans ran everywhere (even outside on deck). Downstairs bedrooms are not connected to upper living area, access is via stairs. That was fine for our teens. Overall very pleasant!

Beautiful Views and Comfortable Living

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Blue Agave with three other couples. The location is beautiful with stunning views of the blue waters surrounding St. John. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath and then there is a shared kitchen, living room, two covered outdoor areas with tables and chairs. In between is a open area and pool. Even though we had a couple of short periods of (heavy) rain we never actually sat in the living room as the covered outdoor areas were large enough to keep us from getting wet. The days were full of beaches, snorkeling, hiking the many trails followed by cocktails, dinner and group chatter around the pool until bed. Beach towels, beach chairs and coolers were provided. I would highly recommend this location!

Owner's Response: The temperatures in St John are so great for being outdoors. In all the time that we have had our home, we have never eaten indoors at Blue Agave. I designed the dining gallery for dining in most weather. I am so glad that you enjoyed your couples vacation. Please return when you can.

Amazing Beach House in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have found this property. The Chocolate Hole location is absolutely perfect and the views are gorgeous! The house is very well equipped with anything you could possibly want or need.

Want to go to one of St. John's fantastic beaches? Beach Towels, beach chairs, coolers, swim noodles and rafts are on hand for your use. We also appreciated the St John beach guide that was in the house. This helped us to navigate to a few places that we had not been on previous trips to the island. Salt Pond is our new favorite beach spot!

Thinking of cooking a few meals in? This kitchen is set up very well. Pans, casserole dishes, baking sheets, spices, you name it, they've thought of it. There were even ziploc bags, foil and paper towels; things one would normally have to pick up at high prices on their own.

Want to stay in for the day or evening? There's plenty to do at the house. The pool is wonderful and the chaise lounges are plentiful. We spent an evening in and played card games and swam under the stars. But... don't forget the bug spray. The mosquitos are no joke!!!

The drive into Cruz Bay is about 10 minutes. We parked with Slim Man's nearly everyday and went to a different restaurant every night (except game night). There is a grocery store about 5 minutes away. This was very convenient for our daily beach trips to pick up ice, beer, water and snacks.

Thank you so much for a very memorable trip. We would definitely return to this same property!
