About the property

VIewtiful - Enjoy Privacy and One of the Most Spectacular Views in the Caribbean

VIewtiful is a two bedroom, 2 and a half bath, two level home with a pool, hot tub, breeze, and spectacular views of Coral Bay and British Virgin Islands. It is high on trade winds cooled Mamey Peak with spectacular views along the boundaries of the Virgin Islands National Park.

From your private parking space, there is a short walk through the garden entry to the upper level of the home. The upper level is a great room, with a living room area, dining room area, and a complete kitchen with dishwasher. Outside the kitchen door, is an outside dining area and gas grill. There is a half bath is off the living room area, which has cable TV, DSL and wifi, and stereo. Step out the door to a large sun deck with lounges and enjoy our spectacular sun and moon rises over Coral Bay.

There is an outside staircase, to a very private lower level, with two bedrooms, each with their own attached full bath, the pool, and spa.

One bedroom has a king bed, and the second has two twin beds which can also be made up as a king bed. Both bedrooms have air conditioning, and the bedroom with the twin beds also has cable tv.

Step out of both bedrooms onto the pool deck. One side of the pool has a large sun deck with lounges for sunning, and the other side has an equally large fully covered deck with table and chairs, and a mini bar with small fridge. A side deck has the Jacuzzi, with lots of privacy and great views of Coral Bay.

This home is located on the center of the island, close to the beaches, and less than a mile to Maho Bay. It is an ideal location for guests who want to explore St. John.

Beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel equipment and coolers are provided. The home has a washer and dryer. A great home for one or two couples.

There is a minimum 10 year age limit because of pool safety issues.

Property is nice, but needs a few improvements.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 8 nights in March with two adults and two kids.

PROS: Amazing views. Great location for North Shore beaches. Fantastic property owner (responsive, helpful). We enjoyed all the decks, grill, and hot tub. Great selection of St. John books, novels, games, coolers, snorkels, beach chairs, etc. Usable little kitchen and living area. A/C in bedrooms worked well. Washer/dryer essential.

CONS: Steep, bumpy driveway in need of repair. Property is not new, and needs a little refresh. Bedrooms a little musty. Some broken tiles here and there outside. Hot tub cover half filled with water and moldy. Half of jets on hot tub non-functional (we still enjoyed it). Water heater a little small.

Great views, house needs work

  • 3 of 5

First the good. Have stayed on St John several times at different houses. This house had by far the best view overlooking Coral Bay and the BVI. Trade Winds in winter provide constant cool breeze day and night. Caretaker of property was very nice and seems responsive to any issues. The bad. Stayed in this property twice now two years apart. They seem to have let the property go some since our first visit. Have noticed it is definitely in need of updating of appliances and some maintenance. Only one eye of gas stove would provide enough heat to really cook on. One eye was completely rusted in two preventing anyone from using it. Stove, toaster definitely needed to be replaced. Hottub stopped heating halfway thru week and never was fixed before we left. I do think caretaker tried to get someone to come look at it but appeared it was never fixed. Could still use it but we normally like hot tub warmer than 92 degrees especially at night. If you want a great view and don't mind being 15-20 min out of Cruz Bay and just want a place to sleep then Viewtiful is great. Still enjoyed staying but not sure I would book it again without some maintenance issues resolved and couple newer appliances.

Owner's Response: Hi Wayne, We apologize that the issues made your stay less than what it could have been. When we bring guests to the home, the last thing we ask all of our guests, is to please let us know of any issues, they find with the home, while they are here. We do stress letting us know while you are here, because living on a little island, sometimes affects our ability to get replacements or repairs done right away, and we really do try and keep our homes in great shape! We did call the spa repair company, the day we spoke to you, and they did come out, the next day and diagnosed it, but had to order a part. It was repaired and back up and hot, on Monday, unfortunately, the day after you left. The toaster oven has been replaced! The stove does work, but you are correct, not as well as it could. We asked the current guests about it, (they have rented the home many times), and they pointed out that the airflow from the kitchen windows, definitely affects the effectiveness of the stove! We have been working on plans to upgrade the kitchen, and a different stove will be part of those plans. We hope you will stay in touch, and give us another shot! We would also definitely appreciate an email to our personal email, with any other items, you feel we should look at!!

Mamey Peak Rental - Viewtiful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two teenage daughters enjoyed our stay at Viewtiful immensely. The home was well stocked with all the essentials and lots of extras like games, coolers, containers which made our stay easier. Location of home is terrific....short drive to all the best snorkeling spots. The home contains numerous books on St. John and a very comprehensive book on recommendations, restaurants, ferry schedule, churches, etc. A lot of thought and planning went into creating book for guests. A/C in both bedrooms worked great...quiet. Bedrooms are separate so adults can have privacy if they want. Laundry was also available. Mary-Eileen generously picked us up after we just made the last Ferry (midnight) and kindly drove us to rental car place following morning. She gave us a thorough overview of house and made herself available for questions. We will stay here again.

Awesome Views at Viewtiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Viewtiful and the beautiful island of St. John. This was our 12th visit to St. John over the past 20 years and I'm hoping to make many more visits!

The location is what first attracted us to Viewtiful. We enjoy being close to the North Shore beaches (Francis and Maho are my husband's favorite) and prefer the quieter side of St. John. We prefer to dine in Coral Bay and enjoyed the new Oasis restaurant this trip along with the regular visits to Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro and Shipwreck. We are used to the challenging driveways and side roads that you can find with many of the villa's on St. John and appreciated the "shorter" drive off of Centerline Road to Viewtiful.

Viewtiful had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked, the internet was speedy and although we didn't use it often the TV had lots of options on channels. We enjoyed the pool after returning from the beaches and used the hot-tub several times. The hot tub was a perfect way to end the day -- an ideal location for stargazing. The bedroom set-up is perfect for two couples or a family -- each with their own bathroom. We only turned the AC on one night in the bedroom and we really didn't need to -- there was always a nice breeze coming in the windows.

It was a pleasure to deal with Private Homes for Private Vacations again. Mary-Eileen was quick to respond to any questions we had. We look forward to their assistance on our next trip.
