About Aaron Smith

It all started in the 80's...

My parents discovered St. John in 1980. Every year after that, they would stay on St. Thomas and take the people ferry over to St. John every day. My brother and I would come down with them every Spring Break. We would spend the day at the beach and return to St. Thomas in the evening.

Fast forward a few years...College, marriage, children (Tyler, Garrett, and Emersen). Then in 2005, I wanted to surprise Jana for her 40th birthday. So I planned a trip with our good friends to stay on St. John for a week. It was an incredible trip. That’s when it got into our blood. We “got” it. The whole vibe of St. John: the beauty of the island, the people, the culture, the pace of life (island time). After that trip, we immediately began planning our next trip to St. John for the following year. We also vacationed in a few other places that year, but nothing compared...We were hooked! We have returned every year since.

In 2008 we took our first-ever two week vacation (to St. John of course). We love staying for two weeks---you have time to really decompress and get on island time.

Aaron Smith purchased this villa in 2011

Why Aaron Smith chose Rendezvous Bay

We have stayed on the Coral Bay side and the Cruz Bay side. During our 2010 trip, we looked at some land and some houses, with the dream of living here one day. It quickly became an obsession. We looked at several homes, but the view at Blue Heaven Rendezvous kept us coming back. We ended up buying in 2011. We hope you enjoy Blue Heaven Rendezvous as much as we do. It is in the classic caribbean style with extensive stone work throughout the property and Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The View!

It is mesmerizing. When we are on St John, we are outside almost all of the time. Breakfast or just coffee on the deck, taking in the morning view as the island wakes up. Most of the day is spent at one of our favorite beaches, we pack a cooler with 'beach sandwiches'. For some reason a sandwich always tastes better at the beach. In the late afternoon we're back on the deck as the sun begins to fade. We grill out most nights with music and cocktails. We hope you will enjoy the villa as much as we do. It is affordably priced so that others can enjoy two weeks on island as well.

Perfect location, comfortable, easy and cute!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 of us stayed at Blue Heaven in April 2017 and found it to be exactly what we needed. The deck is perfect, well equipped, and has, as others have accurately noted, an amazing view. The bedrooms are all comfortable and quiet from any activity in the main part of the house. The kitchen is well equipped - we did not eat lunch or dinner in the house, but did have breakfast and heavy appetizers and lacked for nothing. Brian and Jessie are great - and adapted to issues that we had due to Delta's meltdown and our arriving in pieces and one day late - they were great. There are coolers, chairs, beach towels - the AC in the bedrooms is very good - all in all just a great house for 5 or 6 folks - or fewer. 5 minutes into town. And Aaron is great to work with too. My sister had stayed in this house before and loved it as well. I will unquestionably check this house first for every subsequent trip and stay here if it is available. Love it. You will too.

Wonderful getaway villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this villa. We were welcomed by the property managers at the ferry dock in cruz bay and with a short steep drive (the whole island is very steep and windy roads!) we arrived to our villa placed in the hills of St. John with breath taking views of the ocean. Aaron has refreshments and snacks awaiting on our arrival which was very nice after a long day of traveling. There is AC only in the bedrooms, but we did not need it in the living area/ kitchen when we were home we keep the sliding doors open with the island breeze flowing in is all you need. The villa is very well equipped with everything from beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, full equipped kitchen if you want to cook a meal in, Gas grill, bath towels, laundry room. It is a short drive to cruz bay, grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants. We visited a different beach each day and had wonderful relaxing evenings at our villa. Can't wait to book our next trip!

Our on-island Villa Manager will meet you at the Ferry Dock and escort you to the villa and give you an orientation. They are available during your entire stay for any questions about the villa or if any maintenance items pop up. They are a wonderful couple who are happy help, if needed.

You will want to explore the island from this perfect location. Just a short drive into town (Cruz Bay) and for world famous beaches: Honeymoon, Solomon, Caneel, Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho and Francis; snorkeling, scuba, hiking, shopping, dining, and happy hour.

When you want to head to Coral Bay (quieter side), it's a quick drive via centerline road to Coral Bay. Enjoy a great burger or fish sandwich at Skinny Legs, breakfast in the morning or pizza at night at Donkey Diner, a fresh lobster roll at Tourist Trap. Great swimming, snorkeling and hiking at: Salt Pond, Grootpan, Great & Little Lameshur, and Reef bay.

Incredible hiking through out the national park. Favorites are the Reef Bay hike and Ram Head.
