5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, 12 Sleeps With Views Of Great Cruz Bay And St. Thomas
Our villa main house will be ready for guests starting in mid-April 2018. Enjoy the 2 Master Bedrooms with ensuite baths and full amenities of the main house! You will love the Spectacular Sunsets over Great Cruz Bay and the Lights of St. Thomas from the new pool deck of Villa Solare. Wonderful 30' X 12' pool and covered patio were added in the fall of 2015. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Great Cruz Bay Estates, Villa Solare offers easy 10-minute access to downtown (no hair-pin curves or roller coaster hills), convenient to shopping, restaurants and North Shore beaches.
Upon entering the Villa property, you experience the natural Caribbean artistry of stone & shell archways, brick courtyard and tropical gardens. The Villa features a Main house with two Master Suites and a Guest Cottage with 3 additional bedroom suites. New A/C in the main living allows additional sleeping on the sleeper sofa, providing accommodations for 2 or as many as 12! All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have private full baths. Each bedroom includes flat screen TVs with cable, and Ceiling fans. Wonderful mahogany cathedral ceilings, doors and paneling throughout, complete the Caribbean experience. The two upper level bedrooms of the Guest Cottage have beautiful new outdoor showers with Caribbean Stone detail. In Spring of 2018, the upper twin guest bedroom is being converted to a studio apartment with small kitchen, indoor eating and sofa with integrated deluxe queen bed. Great for creating separate living for grandparents or young adults.
In addition to the two Master Suites, the Main House features a newly renovated Kitchen with stainless steel appliances and serving/entertaining island, spacious Dining Area and Casual Living Room. Walk from the Living Area onto the spacious deck and relax around your private pool, overlooking the moorings of Great Cruz Bay. The new covered deck accommodates casual dining for 10 as well as a sitting area to escape the afternoon sun or occasional showers.
From the Guest House, enjoy great views from the elevated deck or relax in the shaded patios beneath.
Plenty of parking with easy turn-around. The gently sloping yard is perfect for families with small children or elderly. Easy 5 min. walk to the Westin for beaches, bars and boat rentals/excursions. Wonderful venue for Family Reunions or Wedding Party accommodations.

Nice property in a great location. Great pool area and view.
We had a few minor issues at first but the manager was quick to get them remedied. This was our 4th trip to the VI and the house worked great for our group of 10. The driveway is a little steep but that is the way things are in the VI. Pool area worked great and the view is fantastic. Location is close to Cruz Bay for restaurants/shopping and most of the beaches are 15 minutes away.
We were finally able to vacation with our adult children at the Villa Solare. It was perfect for us! The pool patio was amazing and we spent most of our time out there, in the morning or evening watching the sunset. It is close to Cruz Bay so driving in for dinner or groceries was easy. The kitchen was well stocked, even though we only cooked in one night. The separate bedrooms with bathrooms were all great. I wish I was still there! We will really try to come back!! We were met at the dock by Kay, who did a great job showing us around. Thank you so much for sharing this home and beautiful island.
Excited that your family was able to experience the island and our villa! So glad you love the new pool and deck! We are continuing to add to the island experience...next time you visit we hope to have newly renovated outdoor showers in the guest house! Check us out for your next trip!
Incredible view, amazing pool and patio, lots of space
We had a fantastic stay on St. John for an family reunion with 10 people ages 3 to 67. The house has everything we needed for an amazing week away. We especially loved the patio and pool area. We spent almost all of our time at the house outside on the patio. Great location near Cruz Bay but very quiet at night. The home owner is very responsive and helpful. Most definitely one of the best places our family has ever stayed at!
So happy you enjoyed Villa Solare! The pool deck is our favorite as well with multiple relaxing spaces from sun deck to covered bedroom porches - everyone can hang together! Also, love assisting guests with all their vacation needs - keeps us engaged in island life! Hope to have you back!
Friends Group Trip
The view at every time of the day was phenomenal. There is no better way to drink your morning coffee than watching the sunrise on the bay. We were met at the dock by Kay who explained to us everything we needed to know about the Villa and the Island. Everything was very clean and well appointed. The Villa had all the amenities needed for a trip to the island: blender, beach chairs, cooler, pool floats, and beach towels. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, and big enough to cook a meal for 10. Overall, an excellent experience on the best island in the Caribbean.
It's always great, and rare, when the real thing is even better than the photos! The house is spacious and the outdoor patio/pool area is new and beautifully designed. The owners thought of everything to make the stay easy and provided what is needed, without additional clutter. The cooler on wheels, beach chairs and beach towels were essentials. Loved the large dining table on the patio and the lounge chairs for the pool. A perfect layout for families and/or friends.
Grandmama's Birthday Celebration!
"Why should I want to leave this place?" said Grandmama repeatedly as her family tried to convince her to revisit the beaches that we all remembered so fondly. And indeed, this group of 10 couldn't agree more, although we did explore a bit! Villa Solare was perfect for our 4 generation family gathering including 90 yo Grandmama and 2.5 yo great-grandson. The new pool and deck area was indeed so inviting that we spend most of our time there and ate on the covered verandah every night. The layout with the cottage bedrooms/baths for our mostly later risers and the 2 master bedrooms overlooking the pool could not have been better. We only had one car (definitely opt for a jeep; you need the clearance) for our group of 10 but no worries - lounge at our pool, walk to the beach at the Westin for sand play or drinks, quick run to drop off some at Cinnamon or Caneel, drop off our scuba divers for a pickup at Chocolate Hole, walk to St. John grocery, watch the resident iguanas from the pool (a favorite of everyone)- all easy on island time! Groceries were of sufficient variety although certainly trended more expensive; we mostly shopped nearby St. John grocery but also loved the bagels from Baked in the Sun (and they made a fabulous flourless chocolate torte for gluten intolerant Grandmama.)The villa was well equipped (we prepared all dinners at home), only tried the AC in one room one time as the fans were sufficient and preferred by us and any minor issues we had were solved quickly and in a friendly manner by Caribbean Villas. From the initial booking process to when we left was a positive experience. Any tips ? - Yep, I wouldn't rent a car at the airport again (long line and I am now wary of the car barges as one went down the week we were there and it is guess work as to how early one needs to get in line to make sure you make the ferry to make it to the airport in time. ) Also pack snacks or lunch for the airport - the checkin process is long and the food in the terminal marginal.
Would I return to Villa Solare - and do I hope to return - you betcha!
Amazed that you were able to gather the family for this wonderful event and we feel blessed that you picked Villa Solare to host it! Thanks also for the great insight on the rental car and airport situation. We hope to have you back soon!
