About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Villa Dos Palmas is on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. John—truly one of the most gorgeous islands in the world. The Villa is located in Coral Bay, on the east end of St. John, which is known for it's laid-back, funky atmosphere and spectacular scenery. Once a remote outpost of the Virgin Islands, Coral Bay has developed into an eclectic collection of shops, galleries and restaurants nestled amidst stunning natural beauty. Situated high on a mountain ridge above the bay, Dos Palmas has expansive views of the Caribbean Sea and all of the British Virgin Islands to the east and south with equally impressive mountain views to the west and north. The view of Virgin Gorda on a moonlit night is an experience of a lifetime as are the softly lit skies of sunrise.

This tastefully decorated home contains three bedrooms, all with large private baths. The Master Bedroom includes a private deck. Air conditioning is an option in all bedrooms, though the tropical breezes and ceiling fans are perfect for most nights. There is a beautiful pool with a covered poolside wet bar and entertainment area including a grill. On the main level there is a large fully equipped kitchen with comfortable counter seating and large living room with entertainment center. Dine al fresco on the spacious covered deck overlooking the sea or celebrate a special night in the formal dining area. The villa also features an internet equipped office and work area.

The property is meticulously landscaped and surrounded by peaceful tropical gardens and local fruit trees.

St. John boasts a wide selection of some of the finest beaches anywhere. Since over 2/3 of the island is US National Park, there are many hiking trails and Danish sugar mill ruins to explore—some which can be hiked right from the villa. There are many more restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay and the famous duty free shopping on St. Thomas. On St. John all types of water sports activities are available and can be arranged prior to your arrival if desired. St. John is also a short boat trip from The British Virgin Islands, with many scenic and adventurous spots to choose from... considered a 'must do' by many vacationers, we'll set up an unforgettable BVI day trip during your stay if you choose. Remember your passport if you want to do a BVI trip.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Dos Palmas. Steve was very helpful and responsive to texts. The house had everything we needed. Would definitely go back! The house is astounding, the pictures don't do it justice. The pool is always the perfect temperature!

Great Trip to Dos Palmas!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, better than advertised. Pictures just don't do views justice. Interior is very comfortable. Owner, Steve, was very accessible and helpful prior to and during trip. 5 minute trip down to Coral Bay. Would highly recommend!

Beyond beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

You always hope vacation will live up to expectations, and this one exceeded ours. We stayed with our 11 month old and 2.5 year old. The home was perfectly clean, the grounds are meticulously landscaped, and the rooms are beautifully decorated (the décor made us feel like we were in Thailand or Bali)! The open plan of the kitchen and living room were ideal for kids and the large deck outside was a bonus play and dining area. We could not get over the view from the deck and pool. Really stunning to see the blue water below and mountains around us! We bought groceries on St. Thomas, but the grocery store at the bottom of the hill near the house was great for anything we ran out of. They even had organic milk. Driving up the steep hill to the house and maneuvering in and out of the driveway were scary at first, but were a breeze by a day or two into the trip. The owner was always available by phone before and during our stay if we had a question. We typically don’t repeat vacation spots, but this home is worth visiting again!

Exceeded Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second visit to St. John! This time we took two other couples with us and stayed at Dos Palmas. Our friends were newbies to the island, although we have sailed the BVIs with them on charters several times. We were looking for a comfortable oasis to decompress from 10 days on a sailboat, and this villa totally delivered!

The bedrooms were very comfortable, all with their own baths. The kitchen and living area were spacious and well-equipped. This house has tremendous deck and patio space, with a wonderful pool and outside bar for relaxing. The views from the home are of Hurricane Hole and the East End, up the Sir Frances Drake channel, and the BVIs. The sun rises over Virgin Gorda in the distance. The highlight of the home is the gardens: So many palm trees of all varieties, and flowers and other tropical vegetation create a private and lush setting. The owner Steve has put a lot of love and attention in this villa, and it shows!

We highly recommend Dos Palmas and hope to return some day!

This was our second visit to Dos Palmas. Though the photos are great, the home

Is even more beautiful and luxurious.

Steve has thought of everything, including basic supplies in kitchen and laundry room.

He could not have been more helpful checking that we could find our way around,

And had everything we needed.

The home is a resort in itself, so we most often ate there, and relaxed there

After exploring the wonderful beaches and snorkeling daily.

We plan to keep coming.

Couldn't give this a higher rating, for beauty, quality of home and caring of owner.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and parents had the best stay at Dos Palmas and a fantastic week in Coral Bay! Steve was helpful and responsive from start to finish. We met the on island contact Kenny when we first arrived and he showed us around the place. Everything was easy, the place was immaculate, and the kitchen fully stocked with cooking utensils. Coral Bay is a great area of St John to stay in order to get away from the crowds at Cruz Bay. Also, many good day trips leave from this part of the island. We did the following activities during the week: powerboat day trip with Fly Away Charters, paddleboarding with SUP, and a sailing day trip with Sail Long Distance. The island is great too because there are many hikes and beaches to explore. We had great meals at Aqua Bistro and Miss Lilly's, and other nights we grilled at Dos Palmas. Just one note, get a car with four wheel drive (which we had) for both getting to the house and also just generally around the island.
