A great place to relax and recharge

  • 5 of 5

Our experience started with a wonderful welcome from Nanci. She picked us up, got us to the house and gave us a full run-down of all we needed to know. From there we were left to enjoy all that the house has to offer.

This is truly an amazing property. There were 10 of us in the house including 4 children and we never once felt crowded. Everything you need to function on a day-to-day basis is available. The pool provided a way to remain cool while not at the beach. The grill allowed us to cook up some delicious freshly caught Mahi Mahi. The deck allowed us to enjoy some snacks and cocktails while watching the sunset.

If you are looking for a place that feels like home in a tropical location look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Great place for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Villekulla is a lovely, comfortable and colorful house, set above a picturesque harbor, that was perfect for our adult family vacation. Whatever fun we were having during the day -- snorkeling, hiking, boating -- we always looked forward to coming back to the house with it's two-level deck, beautiful vistas, and pool. We got a lot of use out of the two kayaks to row around the harbor and to the Westin. It's very convenient to Starfish Market and to the restaurants in Cruz Bay (we liked Beach Bar for drinks, Waterfront Bistro for a special meal, Lime Inn, and the kids liked Rhumb Lines -- service was great everywhere). We easily managed to cook Thanksgiving dinner here. Nanci, the property manager, was excellent to work with -- very helpful and accommodating. The pictures are very accurate and we would totally recommend a stay here. Would love to come back.

Excellent Location, Highly Recommend Villa Villekula

  • 4 of 5

Villa Villekula is located ideally near Cruz Bay. Very close to the Westin & St. John Market for easy grocery shopping. I have stayed on St. John a few times and the location of Villa Villekula was more convenient than others due to the proximity to shopping & restaurants. Nancy, the property manager was excellent to work with. She arranged our airport transportation for arrival & departure and waited for us to get our rental cars etc. Here are the only downfalls (but I've noticed most of these issues at any home I've rented on the island) : Furniture is getting very worn (especially in living room). The cushions need a very deep cleaning, the patio furniture also could use a deep cleaning, the house in general could use a deep cleaning and paint touch up. Trim, doors etc are getting very dirty. Everything else was great! Will definitely come back!
