Visit St. John on the only time, island time.

Meritage Great House has everything you need to experience paradise.

Just three minutes from the lively town of Cruz Bay where you can find the best restaurants and shopping areas on the island, Meritage offers a romantic setting overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Situated on the hillside of Chocolate Hole, St. John, USVI, Meritage is just a short walk down a winding path to tranquil Hart Bay. Hart Bay is perfect for beachcombing and sunbathing.

Meritage has three levels of decks, with bedrooms on each level. There is a sundeck around the pool and wrap around covered decks on two levels, many different gathering places for your group, and secluded places for privacy. There is a wireless internet connection throughout the house.The villa was recently renovated with new furniture and hand-painted wall accents with faux finishing. From the decks, you can see the islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas in the distance. Relax poolside and listen to the surf roll in from Hart Bay Beach which is just a five-minute walk down from the house. Lay in the hammock sipping your favorite cocktail while you watch a dramatic Caribbean sunset.

The well-stocked kitchen with Italian granite countertops is a great place to create a feast. Or, you may simply want to whip up a tropical concoction by the pool.

The best of nature and paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The best of everything you could ask for! We loved our mornings with the iguanas on the treetops, even named a few. The property is filled with the beauties of nature while making for easy entertaining. The multiple decks and outdoor living spaces are awesome. The pool is perfect for an evening dip after spending the days at the bay's. And the hot tub is perfect when you want to relax even more.The multiple master bedrooms with master baths makes for easy living. Chris was phenomenal thru the entire booking process, so helpful and attentive, and Sinbad is fantastic with helping acclimate to the property and island. It's still the best keep secret, the natural beauties are mesmerizing. Definitely recommend it regardless of your parties ages. Perfect for young families, couples of all ages, and groups of adults. Perfectly private and close to town, awesome location!

Great home, great hosts!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A very memorable trip at Meritage! Awesome views and location to town, beaches, national park and sightseeing. SUPER comfy house, lots of privacy, loved the pool, everything you need is here and so fun to work with Chris and Sinbad. The pictures do not do this home justice - beautiful plantings, multi-levels offer privacy, and great views from all areas. If you are looking for views, comfort, island style, easy access, privacy and a home to keep all parties happy - this is it! Just book it and ENJOY!!!!

Incredible House + Host

  • 5 of 5

Chris/Sinbad were awesome hosts, answering a million questions and giving us an awesome welcome to the house. The house has an incredible view of St John and everything you could need for a party of 8. The beds were very comfortable, pool is great and also has a hot tub.

I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 couples and one single just returned from our 10-day vacation on St. John. Sinbad welcomed us at the ferry, escorted us to the house and gave us a complete tour. Each of the 4 BR's has its own private entrance, bath with shower, a/c as well as a private decks with seating to enjoy the exceptional views. The communal area has a full kitchen, large dining table for 8, TV, fast wifi, bar, and ceiling fans. The large main deck has a very nice gas grill, more outdoor seating and another dining table. The pool was cool with plenty of seating to nap or sunbathe. There are so many extras provided by the host. Coolers, beach chairs, towels, pool floats, and ample recommendations for activities. Most activities are about 10-15 minutes away by car. Taxis are no problem. Private chefs and cleaning services are available. The water is filtered and tastes great. The bedrooms have reading lamps and plenty of closet space. There is ambient lighting by the pool and in the main living area. We loved watching the many iguana's, gecko's and birds that frequent the property. The property is lovely, great location up on the hill to catch the breezes and enjoy the views, the owner could not have been more helpful and Sinbad is a phone call away although we had no reason to call.
