About The Owner

Building Andara in 2010 fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a home on a Caribbean island. We have been traveling to St. John for the past 25+ years and have made an annual tradition of traveling with extended family. We love to scuba dive, hike, snorkel, and chillax! There is no place better to decompress than St. John, being 2/3 National Park with some of the most gorgeous beaches in our own backyard. We hope you love STJ as much as we do & are happy to share Andara!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Estate Hansen Bay

The sweeping north shore panoramic views across to Tortola & the BVIs, watching vessels from sailing yachts to majestic private yachts cruise down the Sir Francis Drake Channel will relax even the most stressed out mainland traveler! The breezes, bananaquits (island birds), humming birds, serenity of the East End called us to this piece of paradise.

What makes this villa unique

Andara is in close proximity to the laid back vibe of Coral Bay and it's unique variety of restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. After a day of exploring or lounging at one of the nearby beaches Andara is a peaceful oasis to return to at the end of the day!

extremely easy to work with

  • 5 of 5

We visit STJ annually, this year in April, can't wait and looking forward to Andara. The owner, Andy has been very accommodating with quick responses to questions and helping with additional days and guests. In short a pleasure to work with. He uses VIVA for contracts/etc and they have also been very responsive. Planning and villa selection is always part of the fun and these folks have added to the fun while making it easy.

Reward for Living

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a world class, restfull vacation, then this villa is perfect for you. Natural beauty abounds, picture postcard beaches just a short ride away, starlit nights...... The villa itself has every possible amenity; one of our favorites are those outdoor showers. Thanks to the satellite, we were even able to catch the NFL playoff games under the gazebo with Tortola's twinkling lights in the background! We'll be back!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at Villa Andara reminded us how much we missed the St. John. The view from the villa is like none other. Rainbows and ships set in the startlingly blue water and lush surroundings greet you every day. While the view from the villa is magical the Villa itself is a true work of art. Every light fixture, furniture and design element has been carefully thought out to add to the beautiful setting that is St. John. Yes, you need a car to take advantage of the island but we discovered on our last day that a quick trip down the hill brings you to a rocky beach perfect for a quick visit and snorkel. Simply perfect getaway.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you made it to the beach below Andara. It really is a very nice little snorkel spot. Hope to see you again soon!

This home was built with Heaven in mind. We have been lucky to visit Villa Andara on two different occasions. When I am not here I am dreaming of my return. The home is exquisite. Every detail has been thought out. If you are not the adventurous type; no worries, there isn't a reason to leave. The impeccable view is panoramic, the infinity pool transcends you into a state of ecstasy. The luxurious outdoor showers that overlook the intertwined vines of the flora allow for a refreshing yet invigorating feel unlike any experience. The kitchen is gourmet all the way. You will enjoy cooking in it or if you are really lucky watching someone cook for you in this state of the art kitchen. If this home is a budget stretch for you, go for it! You will not be disappointed.

Second time around

  • 4 of 5

A true testomony of our love of Andura was that we came back, as we had a flawless vacation here last year. We did notice some differences however which we did not expect based upon the pricey,yet competitive, rate of such luxury. This year the bronze wall fountain did not function and was not repaired during our stay. Seems like a little issue unless you had experienced the hundreds of hummingbirds using it as their tropical bar last year. We came in on Super Bowl Sunday and alas none of the televisions worked. Of course you may also be thinking that we were on vacation, who needs TV? It would have nice to have at least been able to watch the big game. The TV / satellite issue was partially resolved mid-week after two calls so we could finally get music in the great room. To this day we are unable to switch it to the gazebo/ pool area speakers. One of our party is a a wonderful amateur chef. He delights in using what we have on hand to create delectable dishes. But alas, the beautiful commercial gas range had electronic sparking issues all week and did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time. (Resulting in stained clothes.) Light fixtures need cleaning outside and light bulbs need to be replaced. All this being said we know is genuinely minor but... We have grown to expect clean, properly functioning facilities, especially if we are willing to pay the price. If we were the owners we would want to know these things and would drill down to whose resposility it is to keep it at 100%. We love this place and do not want to see it decline. Just sayin'.

We loved Villa Andara so much we went back and had our wedding there

  • 5 of 5

In 2011 my (then) boyfriend and I took our first romantic getaway together as the very first rental guests of Villa Andara. The most vivid memory for me was our drive out to the East End and seeing the villa up on the mountain as we made our way up the winding road. It was hard to believe we would be spending the next week in a house that looked like paradise. Once there, you enter the driveway from above and you can't help but have your breath taken away by the view. It is not possible to use words to describe taking in the first view of your surroundings. The house is impeccably done with every detail considered. The outside living space is a gorgeous and inviting as the inside. The gourmet kitchen and outside grill area have every amenity you would need if you will be cooking any meal. Our week was perfect, really, we wanted for nothing and had every luxury we would need.

And so 3 years later while planning, there was no question where to have our destination wedding. We returned to paradise at Villa Andara. The setting was perfect and our wedding day and honeymoon were all that it should be.

I'm intentionally keeping this review short so that anyone skimming through to get a sense of this house will quickly see that it's one of the most beautiful places on St. John. If you choose Villa Andara you will have no regrets.
