Villa with Beautiful Sunset and Ocean View (See Video)

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa


About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-10)

Nestled on a hill with great west views consisting of a 2 bedroom unit with adjoining doors to another 2 bedroom attached unit doubling rooms and capacity including bath and kitchen accomodating up to 10 guests. Very spacious.

This villa is located 1.5 miles out of town but minutes from the ferries, beaches, restaurants, clinic etc. All paved roads, this unit has off road private door front parking. The units are by far better than the rates may reflect, but we know how expensive it is to stay on St. John and to get here so we priced for guests on a budget, cheaper than all hotels on the island but much nicer and less crowded. You won't be disappointed.

Why Charles Smith chose Cruz Bay

I chose this location because of the awesome West and southwest ocean and sunset views, convenience of being out of town but still close to everything you came to beautiful St. John for. The beaches, the car and passenger ferries, the stores and if your heart starts racing from all the wonders of our little Paradise, the Myrah Keating Smith Clinic is less than a mile away. If i were on vacation here on St. John, this is where i would like to be.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy watching the ships and ferries travel between St. John, St. Thomas East and south shores and ocean views down to Vieques and an awesome sunset right from your kitchen, living and dining room or balcony while you barbecue or just relax on the balcony.

Very Clean Property

  • 3 of 5

Given the cost of living on St. John and what you have to pay at the upscale resorts, this a bargain. Although kind of sparsely furnished (a queen bed instead of a full size would be a nice addition to the master bedroom) and decorated, it was roomy and very clean inside. Unless you're a fitness junkie, you're not going to walk to town from here. Upon arrival, It would have been nice to have a couple of bottles of water in the fridge and some ice in the freezer. Some outdoor landscaping and clean up would enhance the appearance. You are asked to turn off the AC when you go out. So, when you return, it's a little stuffing until everything cools down.

Great Villa at a Fantastic Price!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Horizon Villas! The other villas are long term rentals and residents are very quiet. The vacation villa sits quite close to a very busy road, so there's some noise from that, but overall not too noticeable. The views from the balcony were amazing - great spot for your morning coffee or sunset cocktails. The villa is quite spacious, and even though there were only two of us traveling, we could have easily fit 8 people here with no problem. It's a little over a mile out of Cruz Bay, but there's a bus stop across the street. I wouldn't say it's walking distance just due to the hills and lack of shoulder on the road. Villa was well equipped with beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back again!

great value

  • 5 of 5

great value for the money, as St. John can be very expensive. Owners are very responsive and in touch with meeting at the ferry docks, itself is well maintained and comfortable with anything you could need, very nice deck with view of cruz bay and st is only about 5 minutes from downtown; great property and owners, would definitely stay again

A great find

  • 4 of 5

A clean condo with comfortable beds and couches. Wifi, a satellite, TV and A/C and in both rooms and in the family room too. There are beach chairs (4), bathroom towels and beach towels as well as a bathroom with a tub. A balcony with a gas grill on the table and a view of Cruz Bay. Charles and Marlita great host and responded promptly for our requests for batteries for the A/C remotes and when we ran low on running water. Charles even showed up one day without being contacted and refilled the water, I would have liked mixing bowls, measuring cups and measuring spoons, better pots and pans, a few more bowls and more light in the kitchen. Even so, would stay there again because of the great rate and Charles & Marlita.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to post a review because I want to keep this place to myself, no kidding! This is an almost new roomy condo with a fantastic location & view overlooking Cruz Bay. It has a full kitchen, bath w/ tub, satellite TV, good Wifi & good A/C. Charles & Marlita are excellent people & will respond promptly to any requests you may have. There are a few extras included for beach lovers. There is a very good gas grill on the balcony. Others say this, but please conserve resources during your stay. Is is the St. John way. We honestly hated to leave this place!

Clean and shinny. 5 min drive down the hill to center of Cruz Bay. Bus stop at end of driveway if you do not have car. Charles and Marlita great host, came by several times per our request. Best shows on Island can be enjoyed from the balcony, sunsets, rain storms and LIGHTNING! No need for TV. Nice bathroom with TUB ( if you have small children) please remember to conserve on St John, and where ever you may be or go. Will definitely be back.
