About the Property
2BR,2 Bath Villa with Pool, Oceanview; Close to town and beaches, St. John USVI
Enjoy lounging under the Caribbean sun and the blue sky that's punctuated by fluffy, cottony clouds. Enjoy paddling around in the deepest pool on Saint John -- or lolling, half underwater on the huge steps in its corner. We know you'll appreciate the quiet, secluded privacy of your own little 'peace o' heaven.'
The large dining table and cushioned chairs out on the pool deck invite your party to dine outdoors after barbecuing on the gas grill. Then enjoy gazing at a flamboyant sunset from the porch swing.
After sunset, watch as Saint Thomas comes to life like a pulsing gem of light against the black velvety background under the moon and stars.
Inside, the cross ventilation through the doors and shutter windows invite the 200-foot-high hillside breezes (aided and abetted by the floor and ceiling fans). You're sure to get a cool restful sleep. (The installed split-unit A/Cs in each bedroom are hardly ever needed).
Well-stocked supermarkets, shopping, and nightlife abound close by. And the locals are as sweet as sugar. (Say 'Hello!' first, and enjoy big smiles in return!).
Imagine yourself in the various scenes shown here. Then phone us to reserve your favorite week(s) -- and to realize a memorable dream in your own little Peace o' Heaven.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

We are willing to rent to families with children of any age. HOWEVER, it must be noted that extra care must be taken on the pool deck and in the pool, which is deeper than most. The doors leading to the deck from all rooms CAN be locked with bolts on the bottom to deter access. In any case, it is the ultimate responsibility of the parent(s) or designated caretaker to maintain constant vigilance in monitoring the movements of minors, especially infants and toddlers. Thank you for understanding in this matter. ...moreless
- Non Smoking Only
- Pets Not Allowed

Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, Beds for 4-6
Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms
- Individual A/C units in the bedrooms. On pool deck: 4 Chaise Lounges & 2 Chairs + Outdoor Dining Table & 4 Chairs. Please note that the villa & pool are for the exclusive use of the short-term rental guests. But be advised that there is a small cottage, which is rented long-term (2 tenants), as well as an "owner's apartment" below the pool deck, part of the living room & west bedroom. As the owners now live stateside due to medical disabilities, it is also rented long-term. Tenants are quiet, responsible adults, who rent with the understanding that the comfort & needs of the vacationing guests are paramount. This arrangement is quite common on St. John to help even out income in the off-season & cover the exceptionally high cost of doing business there. At the same time, the layout of the property was designed to create maximum privacy. We believe that our rates reflect our semi-private situation, while still providing all the amenities for a wonderful stay at a value price. ...moreless

We are just outside of Cruz Bay Town, off of Centerline Rd. (Rte. 10), up 'Pocket Money Lane'(Hill). You proceed up that hill about an 1/8th of a mile, pass the Church Gate on the left and Cruz Views Condos on the right. Make the 'very next' left and our home is the second property on the left, with the aqua roof. We think our place is a great location. It is high enough to be out of the hustle of town, to take advantage of the view and the breezes, yet convenient to shopping and restaurants. You can even walk!
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Andrew, aka 'Captain Magic,' has loved the water and warm weather since he was a boy. While playing sax on many cruise ships, he visited many ports o' call and fell in love with St. John. After years of dreaming, he, and his life partner, Ruthellen (aka 'Dr. Cha Cha Cha') sailed from Florida in their 30' sailboat, arriving at their new home in 2001. Andrew and Ruthellen love sharing the pristine beauty and peacefulness of St. John with their guests.
Why the Owner Chose Bethany, St. John, USVI:
For the beautiful views, especially the sunsets and the convenience to town and the beaches. Excellent value for the price.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Tropical beach feel, but convenient to town and amenities. The swing on the pool deck facing west to St. Thomas and beyond, is the perfect place to hang out. The entire living area is on one level, with only 1 step up to the porch and a low threshold. This feature and the open floor plan make it suitable for guests with disabilities and mobility issues. But, because the home is built into the natural incline, there is still a tree house feel and view from the deck.
