About the Property

A 5 bedroom, 5 full & 3 half bath home with amazing views of the BVI..

La Pura Vida Villa is actually two buildings - the Main House, comprised of 3 bedrooms (each with a private bath), a game room with a big screen 3D TV and pool table, a gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, a bar, laundry room, great room and dining room. The Master Suite has a spacious sitting room with a computer and TV. The Master Bath has 2 vanities, a full size tub and a huge shower with 2 rain shower heads and a handheld shower. Additionally, there is a wall mounted TV in the Master Bath, situated for perfect viewing while soaking in the tub. One of the downstairs bedrooms has an expansive double vanity and both an indoor and outdoor shower. All of the bedrooms in the house and cottage open onto a balcony or veranda.

The expansive Great Room and Dining Room flow seamlessly from one to another, bordered by the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. There is hardly a tool or appliance that you will find missing from this kitchen! Custom mahogany french doors border this room and can be opened onto the large veranda. In fact, both levels of the house have a large veranda, perfect for early morning coffee or watching the sun go down with a glass of wine!

The Main House is separated from the Cottage by a large pool deck complete with deck chairs and umbrellas. A covered outdoor dining area that seats 10 is flanked by an outdoor grill, ice maker, refrigerator and another TV if the beautiful view of the ocean and surrounding islands isn't enough! The enclosed storage area behind the outdoor dining contains pool floats that can be used in the arc-shaped pool with an infinity edge and separate waterfall feature. An outdoor shower and pool bath border the pool deck.

The Cottage has two bedrooms. The lower one has a small kitchen and living room area. Each bedroom has a private bath and balcony with lovely views.

All bedrooms contain telephones, TVs, clock radios that dock with iPhones, hair dryers, safes, robes, beach towels and bags, and of course, toiletries. Additionally, an iron and ironing board, as well as blow-up mattresses and a pack and play are available for use. Please let us know in advance if you would like to use any of these. There are cards, games, books and movies for our guests to enjoy while at La Pura Vida Villa.

The lush surrounding gardens complete the picture of La Pura Vida Villa. Doves flutter and hummingbirds flit about the property and if you're lucky, you might spot an iguana or mongoose down below on the hillside.

We truly hope our guests love and enjoy La Pura Vida Villa as much as we do, and care for it as if it were their own so that others can enjoy it for many years. Come enjoy La Pura Vida - 'The Pure Life'.

La Pura Vida Villa is located on the East End of the beautiful island of St. John. Away from the busier Cruz Bay (12 miles and 40 minutes to the west), La Pura Vida is a luxury retreat where one can truly relax and soak in the serenity and pristine beauty of the island of St. John. Must-sees or dos in the vicinity of the home are the artist community of Coral Bay, Vi's Snack Shack (the BEST garlic fried chicken on the planet), Skinny Legs Bar & Grill (live music on the weekends and Sloop Jones' studio (a local artist of international repute). Many hiking trails through the surrounding national parkland are nearby, some ending in the opportunity to explore the ruins of ancient sugar mills.


Manager info

About: Owners Tim and Diane Myers are native Texans who fell in love with the beauty and charm of the Virgin Islands years ago when they rented a sailboat and spent a week sailing in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean. A few years and a few rentals later, they purchased their own sailboat and began spending almost every summer and holiday island-hopping in the Virgin Islands. Flash forward a few more years, and they decided that it wasn’t just enough to circle the beauty of St. John in a boat – they wanted to build a home there. From this came La Pura Vida Villa – a luxurious 5-bedroom home perched high on a hillside on St. John, with sweeping, breathtaking views of Tortola and other surrounding islands. A place to unwind and reconnect with nature and others. A place to make memories and experience “La Pura Vida” – “The Pure Life”.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The unspoiled beauty of the island of St. John, over half of which is National Parkland, drew us to it. We knew the island would never be overdeveloped. We chose local Barefoot Architects to design the home and the meticulous Alex Brookes of Creative Builders to build it. Decorated by Houston-based interior decorators David Merryman and Karen Kramer, the house has a warm, comfortable and elegant feel with enhanced functionality.
