About Dave Rifkin
My occupation (trial lawyer and real estate developer) has lots of rewarding moments, but its also a very stressful way to earn a living. Relaxation and unwinding is not an option, its an absolute necessity and when it comes to relaxation, Rainbow Beach is pure magic. If you need to unwind, this is a fantastic place to do it. This location also has a very romantic essence. It has always worked for me, and I bet it will do the same for you .
Dave Rifkin purchased this Villa in 1992
Why Dave Rifkin chose Estate Saint Quaco and Zimmerman
We looked for years for a beachfront site on St. John to build a vacation home for my family. The National Park beaches are gorgeous and the Park owns most of the islands beachfront property, so there just isn’t a lot of private beachfront property on St. John. So when this property came on the market, we pounced on it and it has proven to be one of the best decisions we ever made. We designed the house to accommodate a large family, but it's also designed so the upper level is perfect for just one or two couples. Maybe it's the turquoise waters right outside your windows, or the lapping of the sea on the shore, or the softly blowing, warm, moist trade winds, but there's something very romantic about Rainbow Beach. Over the years we've rented to a lot of honeymooners, couples and lovers, and the guest comments make it real clear that this is a house with a genuine romantic essence.
What makes this Villa unique
I like to be in the water, or on the water, 2-3 hours a day - swimming, snorkeling and boating. I’m a self confessed beach nut, and the Caribbean sun and the warm sea are what makes every day at Rainbow Beach another day in heaven for me. At night you can always find me in the hot tub with some good music and a cold drink under a star filled sky – the sun’s down, but I’m still in heaven. If you or your family like being in the water and on the water, I think you’ll really enjoy Rainbow Beach

We love the villa and our stay was greate
The villa is perfect, all renovated, we had everything we need. Overall we love it. The only problem we had was a hot tub which did not work and needs to be upgraded, replaced, or not advertised as villa's feature at al. Thank you.
You were lovely guests at Rainbow Beach. We apologize for the hot tub but the part has arrived and is now operating. Have a wonderful holiday.
Great house and Spectacular View
This house was perfect for us. There were some previously expressed concerns about the furniture but what we found was new and fit in just right in this home. We had 7 adults using the four bedrooms, two on the lower level and two on the main floor. Great for privacy. Kitchen was a good size and completely stocked with everything we needed. All the amenities were fabulous - we didn't want for anything.
The house is secluded with an incredible view of Coral Bay. The pool/hot tub were fabulous and in great condition. We ended up just hanging out there quite a bit because it was so nice. We used the grill on several occasions and it worked perfectly.
The beach area is pretty small and not really suitable for swimming (lots of sea grass). It is very shallow but this actually allowed us to walk out to a beautiful coral island which we explored for at length. We knew this ahead of time that it wasn't a swimming-type beach so we weren't really disappointed.
Would we go back there? Absolutely! This was the perfect house for our family and hopefully we'll be back.
Rainbow Beach is amazing!!
I have been to Rainbow Beach 7 times. Since my last visit 3 beautiful bathrooms have been installed, a beautiful sectional couch, large tv in downstairs master bedroom, rugs, bedding etc. This is a beautiful home that provides an amazing get away. The views are extraordinary with a pool and jacuzzi overlooking the bay. I love the convenience to all of the local beaches and bistros. Should you wish to cook at home there are 3 markets within a couple of miles. Kitchen is fully stocked. Enjoy a honeymoon here or bring friends and family. I have no desire to go any where else.
I've stayed in this house 4 times. Plenty of room and the amenities are wonderful. House has everything you. It's private location and beach front views are second to none.
Loved the new updates
The home is spectacular and now with some newer updates it's perfect! This is my second visit. This stay included two families. More than enough room for everyone. The kids loved the pool and the beach access is fantastic. We had everything we needed and can't wait to come back.
I was a bit hesitant to stay here reading the last review regarding the small issues they had but obviously the villa owner and manager have made some nice upgrades. There were no bathroom/water issues with us and we had 8 guests the entire week and a half. New living and dining room furniture, exceptional kitchen overflowing with accessories. Deck furniture recovered, list goes on. It's obvious the villa owner listens to his/her guests and made the appropriate improvements. We love Rainbow Beach and will return next spring. Spent time at Lucys Restaurant and Lameshur Bay. The drive to Concordia and walk to Salt Pond was a full day's adventure. We love St. John and will continue to stay at Rainbow Beach. It truly is a comfortable and affordable accommodation.
Thank you for your review about your recent stay at the Rainbow Beach House. We appreciate your comments and letting others know that improvements have been made.
There have been some ups and downs with this villa and we want everyone to know we have been listening. All the comments had an impact on us as well as the owner! Some of the improvements include - new living room sectional couch, 3 updated bathrooms, newly covered lounge furniture, just to name a few items. New photographs have now been taken and will be added to the site very soon! If you are interested in staying here and if you have any concerns, please call or email us. We want guests to be comfortable with their choice of properties and we are here to make sure your vacation is special!
