A most classy beach villa! My husband and I stayed in some lovely villas on other Caribbean islands, but they just don't compare to Calicaribe. This was our first time on St. John, and we fell in love with Calicaribe. As much as we liked the intimacy of St. John, and all it had to offer, our main reason for wanting to go back would be to spend more time at Calicaribe. I even miss the cameleons that hang around the shower garden. The attention to detail, the finishes of the home, the unpretentious fabrics, and decor made the house "homey" and relaxing, with a designer's dash of class and style!
We stayed in this lovely villa late November with another couple and even though the villa has 3 bedrooms, we only utilized the two on the main floor. Calicaribe is located only minutes from the ferry in Cruz Bay yet is set in a very private area with amazing views. All the indoor living spaces were great including great beds and an amazing master bathroom shower. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in along with an outdoor grill. The best part of the villa is the outdoor spaces with a covered porch, swimming pool and beautiful views. My husband is a paraplegic and the villa worked great for him. The main living areas and 2 bedrooms and baths are on one floor with no steps.
I had the pleasure of staying at CaliCaribe for 8 days. It truly is a slice of heaven. If you are looking to relax, recharge and unwind this is the perfect location to do so. It's very romantic and the perfect set up for couples. The rooms are situated in such a way that provide plenty of privacy. The villa is decorated with elegant and beautiful touches.
The view is even more breath taking in person and the most beautiful I've ever seen!!
Town is a short walk or drive down the hill into Cruz Bay with all the restaurants, shopping and bars. A very cute area. The beaches I visited were all unbelievable.
I can't wait to go back! I've told all my friends and family about what an amazing place Calicaribe is.
What a truly wonderful experience! Everything about Calicaribe was just perfect! The home, the view, the pool, the porch....it was a splendid vacation! So close to everything in Cruz Bay, restaurants, the market, shopping. We definitely will go back!
I have been travelling to St. John for many years and Calicaribe is my absolute favorite place to stay. I will sometimes change the dates of my travel so I can stay here. Lovely, well maintained property, tastefully furnished and literally minutes from Cruz Bay and the Marketplace. The house has a wonderful pool for relaxing beside and dipping in after a day at the beach. Very reasonably priced as well. But the major asset of this property in my opinion are the views. Located on a hillside facing west, north/west the view includes Stevens Cay, Grass Cay, Mingo Cay, Two Brothers, Thatch Cay, Hans Lollik, all of Pillsbury Sound and, of course, parts of St. Thomas. Sunsets range from beautiful to truly spectacular. I wish I was there now! Highly recommended.

Great views , loved the pool and dining area that overlook the turquoise water and other islands. Watched the Iguanas in the trees while drinking morning coffee . Lots of privacy for 3 couples or families , as all bedrooms and baths are separate . Great location , close to Cruz Bay , with lots of great restaurants , a wonderful market and the beautiful north beaches. Tastefully decorated with local art . Wonderful stay and highly recommended.
Calicaribe is very close to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches. This ideal location makes it convenient to go to the grocery store, dine at the great local restaurants, shop, and enjoy all the best beaches. At this villa, all of your destinations are just minutes away.
Because the home is at the top of Contant mountain, you have fabulous views and complete privacy, on an acre lot.
Many villas are a long drive to town, or are on the east side of the island, without the beautiful sunsets each evening.
We believe Calicaribe enjoys the perfect location for great water views, convenience , and privacy !!
