With ocean sounds and views from every room, you will be mesmerized by the changing colors from sunrise to sunset. All your senses will be awakened with the sights, sounds, and smells of this romantic setting. Cool tropical breezes, flowering hibiscus, orchids, palms, and unique native birds are all awaiting your visit to Sanctuary.

This sensual villa captures the essence of the Caribbean. Sanctuary features four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large gourmet kitchen, swimming pool, hot tub, and expansive decks to lounge and sun. A Zen water fountain spills over a native stone wall into the pool. A large covered veranda provides an outdoor dining experience you will never forget.

The Great Room provides an incredible view of the entire bay through a wall of sliding glass doors that open onto the 55-foot long covered veranda on the water. The stunning 20 foot long designer kitchen features a huge island with built-in cook surface and bar seating for four, custom teak cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless steel refrigerator, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, and all the appliances, dinnerware, cookware, and utensils a chef may need. A laundry room with washer and dryer is just off the kitchen.

The Great Room is also home to the entertainment center, which features 5.1 home theater surround speakers, a large TV/monitor with cable, DVD, iPod docking station, CD player and one remote control for all. Outdoor speakers are hidden on the pool deck. An extensive library of books, music and movies are provided, as well as whole house wireless internet access.

All four bedrooms are air conditioned, and feature king sized beds, attached baths, cordless phones, and covered decks on the water. One of the bedrooms is in the separate and very private Pool Deck Suite, extending the romance of villa living.

The two lower-level bedrooms are decorated in the colors of the Caribbean, and share a full bath and shady private patio. They feature king size beds, although one can be made up with two twin beds if preferred. One also features a wet bar and mini-refrigerator.

3 generations in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been to St. John many times since our honeymoon in 1999. We have always stayed in a different villa, but Sanctuary was always one we said we would go back to one day. We traveled with our 2 children (13 and 9) and my husbands parents. The Villa did not disappoint. It is still as welcoming and accommodating as it was when we stayed there in 2004. The kitchen and all it's amenities were a highlight of the house! One suggestion I would make is to have a couple beach chairs that are higher off the ground. This would really help out the older people when traveling to the beach. Other than that it was perfect!

Home Again!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 8th year at The Sanctuary. It never disappoints. We were thrilled and felt immediately at home on our first trip with our family of 8. We have had 6, 4, 3 and just the two of us and it has always been as welcoming as the first visit. We have our privacy with a view that is hard to beat. The close proximity to Cruz Bay makes it great for dinners out. We will return again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to St. John. We have stayed in Peter Bay, Cruz Bay and Catherinesburg. This was our first stay in Rendevous Bay. We traveled with two other couples and our 3 kids, it was a perfect layout with two of the bedrooms having separate baths and the one our family used was downstairs with a shared bath with our kids. The house was beautifully appointed and had many extras as far as supplies needed for cooking so we didn't have to purchase things we may use just one time. The view is amazing and the location was convenient to town. The downstairs bedrooms are only accessible by steps outside of the villa, but since the weather is usually nice it wasn't a problem for our crew. Mark at SeaView Homes was very accommodating and helped us plan our trip along the way. The owners have thought of everything needed to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Everything in this home is well maintained and very clean. Thank you Wilson's for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

First visit to St. John and landed a gem of a place! Had everything we needed and more. Would highly recommend this home to all...the nature, the kayak, the pool and home provide us an abundance of great memories and experiences.

The Experience Lasts All Year!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was comprised of six people (two friends and two couples), between the ages of 30-41. We wanted a place where we could reconnect, be just a little rambunctious, and truly feel as though we were on vacation. Prior to this trip, I was not a enthusiast of the whole 'tropical vacation' idea, since that typically involved staying at large resorts and being subjected to crowds, children and the 'herd of cattle' treatment. Thankfully, Sanctuary St. John is the antithesis of the mainstream tropical vacation.

Sanctuary St. John absolutely gave us the best vacation getaway experience! Ed & CJ have been doing this for quite some time...and it shows. The house is situated in a sweet spot, which leaves one feeling that they're living the epitome of luxury. Waking up each morning to the swooping pelicans, hearing the waves crashing 24 hours a day, and being surrounded by all the comforts of home (including wifi, blessed be!) allowed us to detach from our lives back home and fully feel that we were a part of island life. Everything was truly clean, useable, and there was plenty of space for our groceries & belongings, allowing us to 'move in' and live.

Our first night had the clearest sky of the entire trip, and the view of the stars is everything. Sitting in the pool and hot tub each night, watching cruise ships go by, seeing the tiniest twinkle of lights from St. Croix, hearing our favorite music over the outdoor speakers...these are moments that live on well after the stay has come to an end.

St. John's many beaches are worth the short drives. On weekdays, even close to the holidays, we felt as though some beaches were there just for us. When we would encounter others, we found everyone to be friendly, respectful and just plain happy. Local life is every bit as relaxed as one might assume, but there is a variety of shopping & dining options that are within 10-15 minutes' drive, and are certainly recommended.

Yes, we're coming back. No, we wouldn't change a thing. Yes, that is saying something. If you want to put the rest of the world on a shelf, and focus on peace, restoration & comfort, this is the place to do it.
