About the Property

1+ bedroom, 1 bath, a/c, lovely harbor views, very convenient

With only a few exceptions, there are very few one bedroom rental villas on St. John, and none are as convenient to Cruz Bay as is Periwinkle. You can walk to a white sand beach, tennis courts or restaurants at the Westin Resort and you’re a 5-minute drive from Cruz Bay, yet you're located in a private, picturesque setting, surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping. For these reasons, and also due to Periwinkle's affordable price, its cheerful decor and its cozy hot tub and master bedroom, Periwinkle is a real find. As many honeymooners will happily attest, this villa offers an affordable price and romantic privacy that you just can't find in a hotel setting. Periwinkle and its neighbors, Jasmine, Rosebay and Hawksbill, are all separate homes that can be rented together.

Periwinkle sits about 100 feet up the hill that overlooks the harbor at Great Cruz Bay. The house is surrounded by tropical vegetation in a well landscaped spot that offers marvelous 180 degree views that include the islands of St James Islands, and a slice of St.Thomas, plus the sparkling blue-green waters of Great Cruz Bay and the Caribbean. The house faces south and west so it gets plenty of sun, lovely colors at sunset, and the lights of distant islands twinkling at night. Periwinkle is also very convenient - less than a 5-minute drive - to the restaurants and bars, groceries and shopping in the delightful town of Cruz Bay. It's recommend that you rent a jeep, but because you’re only a 5-minute walk to the Westin Resort, with restaurants, a beach and a taxi stand, this is one of the few villas we offer where you could get by without a jeep.


Periwinkle is a charming and cozy one bedroom, one bath villa with a romantic private hot tub and central air conditioning. You park below the house and a stairway leads up to the entrance into the great room. The interior is a charming tropical motif, with cathedral ceilings with ceiling fans, terra cotta tiled floors, and wicker furniture. Five sets of screened sliding glass doors open to insure a constant flow of cooling trade winds, or close the doors and relax in the comfort of central air conditioning. There is a sun deck off the south side of the villa and all the rooms are on one level, except the small loft on the second level.
The living room furniture creates a casual summer-like atmosphere and throughout the living and dining areas tasteful rugs, lamps, Caribbean artwork and other accessories enhance the feeling of relaxed tropical living. The entertainment system includes cable TV and DVD, an AM/FM stereo with CD and high speed internet.
The interior dining area has a glass topped table that seats four with picturesque water views. The table for four on the sun deck offers even more delicious views. Either table is the perfect spot for romantic candlelight dinners or casual meals.

Periwinkle contains a well equipped kitchen that is perfect for preparing anything from light snacks to gourmet dinners. It includes a 4 burner electric stove, GE refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, server ware, utensils and dinnerware. Also included are a washer/dryer, telephone, gas barbeque grill and an iron and ironing board.

The master bedroom has a king bed and is pleasantly furnished with honey wicker furniture. Open the screened sliding glass doors and the lacy white floor to ceiling curtains wave gently as the soft Caribbean breezes softly caress your body. A tiled bath and shower is off the bedroom.
The second bedroom is a loft (two twins) that is accessed by stairs.

Manager info

About: Periwinkle is one of 4 villas that are neighbors on the hill behind the harbor at Great Cruz Bay. As we mentioned in the Hawkesbill comments, we had been looking for a 4-5 bedroom home, but instead of buying one large villa we bought four smaller villas in the same local - sometimes things work out better than as originally planned. The four homes are all neighbors but the lush vegetation gives them all a good amount of privacy. Without a villa below it, Periwinkle is one of the more private of the villa villas. It's also a cozy and comfortable home, and one of the few one bedroom villas left in this expensive neighborhood of 3-6 bedroom villas

Why Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI:
We wanted to be close to Cruz Bay, but we didn't want to be in the town itself, it's a bit too busy and noisy for us to live in. We’re only about a 5-minute drive from Cruz Bay, yet we're on a quiet hillside overlooking a lovely harbor that we think is much less busy and more scenic than Cruz Bay. Cruz Bay is really a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable small Caribbean town, and we do hugely love it. Yet we much prefer the views and peacefulness of this location. On this picturesque hillside you get the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
A 1-bedroom villa in Great Cruz Bay may not be entirely unique, but there are certainly very few 1-bedroom villas remaining in this area as smaller villas are bought up and then remodeled into larger villas. The pricing for Periwinkle is also somewhat unique, because as the villas get larger, the rental rates move in the same direction - larger.
