The private St John Villa Siempré Azul, named for the remarkably rich variants of blue sky and water above and below, is a custom Caribbean villa rental located above Friis Bay, just south of the quiet St. John, USVI, community of Coral Bay. Perched not far above the surf, this luxury villa's oceanfront view is spectacular! From north to south your eyes will travel the blue waters from Coral Bay Harbor, past East End and on out to the dancing Caribbean sea.
Siempré Azul is intimately secluded (perfect for Honeymoons) yet conveniently close to beaches, hiking trails, and to Coral Bay's unique shops and dining spots. This private villa is a perfect choice for your tropical retreat.

About Chris Boyd
I am custom home builder both on St. John and in New Jersey. I built Siempre Azul from the ground up. I purchased this one of kind property in 1990. Construction was completed in 2000 with constant fine tuning and continous upgrades. If I am not working you can find me on or in the water. My hobbies are surfing, snorkeling, boating, kayaking and hiking all the trails on St. john. I am a licensed pilot rated in both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. I also enjoy racing nascar and have competed at the Las Vegas Speedway, Talladega Super Speedway in Alabama, Miami Speedway, Myrtle Beach Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway at speeds approaching 200 MPH.
Why Chris Boyd chose Estate Emmaus
Siempre Azul a spectacular ocean front property that is totally private and secluded yet minutes away from all the pristine white sand beaches and fine dinning in coral bay.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is custom built out of natural stone both inside and out. The stone was hand split at the St. Thomas rock quarry. All the interior hardwoods were milled and fabricated into custom cabinetry and trim on site. my personnel attention was given to every detail during the construction process. This property is a one of kind piece of paradise perfect for that special time to share with that special person in your life. please take a few minutes to read the many 5 star reviews on home away or VRBO.

Unforgettable Couples Paradise
Siempre Azul is the 'Jewel of Coral Bay'. Often times, the photos make a villa look better online than it does in person. However, this villa proved to be even better than the online photos. As the villa gate opens you are greeted by a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea. Next, you follow a beautiful stone driveway that leads you down to the villa. It was as though you were driving into the sea. Crashing waves welcome you to your vacation stay. What an amazing place. The villa was well designed and immaculate, perfect for couples. We came to St John to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and have no regrets. We love to explore new places on our own. After completely covering the island of St John, we both agreed that Siempre Azul is in the best location on the island.
Chris, the owner was great every step along the way, making sure that we had a great stay. The property manager was terrific. She met us at the villa and gave us a walk-thru of the property along with recommendations for restaurants, groceries stores and other essential island tips.
We plan on returning to Siempre Azul in the future.
I appreciate your comments and thank you for choosing Siempre Azul for your ocean front vacation. Please come back again like so many of my guests do. When a guests writes a review like this it makes all the hard work that went into building the home and keeping it in pristine condition well worth while.
Pat & Patty
The Villa Siempre Azul was a perfect fit to what we were looking for. Serenity, privacy, location, comforts, and an absolutely amazing, usable outdoor space. The views are second to none. If you have ever visited St. John, there are two types of people, Coral Bay or Cruz Bay. If you are looking for the ultimate escape, and enjoy the above mentioned traits in a get away, Siempre Azul is for you. With out a doubt, our favorite Villa an the island! We will return hopefully sooner than later. Chris was very helpful and has the Villa managed will. There really is not one negative thing we can say about our stay. What a piece of paradise! Thank you for being gracious enough to let us enjoy your piece of paradise.
When ever a guest takes the time to write a nice review like this it makes all the work and effort to keep the place polished well worth while. I am glad you enjoyed the house and property. Hopefully when you return I will have the next upgrade completed which is an outdoor brick pizza oven.

This is an all around excellent rental. Beautiful views right out front door and very comfortable accommodations. Clean and up to date. Amenities at the property are great including a Jacuzzi, grill, towels, fins and chairs. Great communication with the owner and property manager (Nancy) from beginning to end. Also- feels very safe and secure which can be an issue at some rentals. No problem getting to all the wonderful beaches. Will be back soon and stay here again. Had a great week! thank you
glad you enjoyed the house. my mission is your complete satisfaction. please come back again like so many guests do. have a great summer!
5 star view
I honestly felt like I was at some exclusive 5 star resort with that view. The pictures do it no justice, this really is a magical place. I loved having the sound of the surf every day from my villa, especially in the morning. The sunrises are spectacular. My husband and I enjoyed beachcombing one night just steps from the patio. Great for couples as it is kinda compact inside. Bathroom is very roomy and the kitchen was perfect for us. I could not get enough of the front patio and that view. Very clean, lots of storage and closets, and the bed was very comfortable. Hot tub was awesome. Just use lots of bug spray when you are outside because of the noseeums. Can't wait to go back!!
Made for an awesome Honeymoon
We spent our honeymoon here and I am at a loss of words how happy we are choosing to spend our honeymoon and first ever trip to STJ at Siempre Azul. It made our stay perfect. First Chris, the owner, is so easy to work with and very accommodating. Without him and his on-island manager Nancy, the experience here would not have been as good as it was. He did everything he could to make sure we had a comfortable stay. On day 2 there was small issue with the A/C unit. I emailed Chris about it and we left for a few hours to explore. When we arrived the problem was fixed! Him and Nancy jumped on it so quickly. You don't find that type of service just anywhere. We were forever impressed.
We absolutely LOVED the house and the property. The house was perfectly sized for a couple. It was clean and well maintained. The listing description does not do this property justice. This house is a treasure in Coral Bay. Prime spot and private like no other. Being on a budget, we were thrilled to be able to afford to stay this villa. The view is spectacular. We ordered food to go a few times and sat on the balcony and ate and made our own drinks in the blender which worked out great. What a great spot to be in Coral Bay as well close to Miss Lucys restaurant and all. The property is so private we liked that it had a gate, felt much more secure.
I think the outdoor shower was our favorite part! The privacy of the property made the outdoor shower so wonderful. We used the indoor shower the first night and then discovered the outside shower and used it the remainder of the trip! That fact alone will bring us back to this property in the future. Man, who knew taking a shower could be so exciting.
Another thing that I loved was that we had access to the garage area to store beach equipment and there was even a shop vac down there with an extension cord so I was able to vacuum the sand out of our jeep every evening! How fantastic is that having a fresh jeep to start each day?! Also used it to vacuum the house mid-week. Not something that Chris advertised but I truly appreciate it and hope will be there next time.
Washer and dryer worked out great allowing us to pack light and clean our clothes and towels throughout the week.
Coral bay area occasionally loses power temporarily. We did lose power two times during the week for a an hour or two.Not a big deal though.
We can't wait to get back here and spend another week. Its the perfect home for an active St John vacation.
Thanks for all the compliments. As a team we work hard to ensure a memorable stay at the house for all out guests. I try very hard to have back up system for everything. please come back and see us again.

Wonderful Honeymooners dream stay
We can go on and on about how much we loved Siempre Azul but it would do no justice for it. We loved everything about our stay and have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. From the help we received on our journey there to the service after it was simply amazing. Chris and Nancy both are excellent and the home was number one on the island as far as we are concerned. We will always book with Chris no hesitations there. Thanks to you Chris for being able to stay in your lovely home and for Nancy thanks for all of you help during our stay:)
The island of St. John is the smallest and quietest of the US Virgin islands. An 8 mile, 30 minute scenic drive east will take you from Cruz Bay, the main restaurant and excellent shopping area to the smaller community of Coral Bay. Siempre Azul is not far from the Salt Pond beach at the southern tip. Ramshead hiking trail starts here and meanders up the mountain to a dazzling 200 ft. high panoramic view. Several local beaches are found here while St John's famous beaches are dotted along the North Shore. Archaeological findings, many ruins and interesting hiking trails abound.
