Breathtaking views, cool caribbean breezes and laid-back island living is what it is all about.

This is your very own tropical paradise. A place to slow down life and get back to nature ... but with all the amenities of home.

Enjoy stunning sunsets by the pool as you watch the sailboats pass by.

The 180 degree ocean and mountain views from the large deck and each room are as good as it gets, making this a romantic place to stay for a couple or a wonderful setting to relax as a family during your well deserved vacation.

It's hard to imagine a more enchanting location.

Just a 5 - 10 minute walk away is a semi-private beach with some of the best snorkeling on the island. Other favorite beaches are nearby.

Great place, great people, great time!

  • 5 of 5

This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house that is fully equipped and sleeps 4. The owners are a lovely couple and live in their own house right next door. They couldn’t be nicer or more helpful. The house is located about as far east on the East End of St. John that you can get. With that comes a lovely place, up high on a hill with constant amazing views and privacy away from the more crowded Cruz Bay area and resorts. The only down side is getting there. If you plan on excursions or dinners in Cruz Bay this might not be the place for you. It takes 45 minutes to drive from Cruz Bay over extremely windy and steep roads. That’s not the kind of drive I would want to be making at night after dinner. That said we were happy to avoid Cruz Bay the entire week and had a fantastic time! Coral Bay is 20 minutes away and has a few restaurants there- our favorite by far was Indigo Grill. There is also a Dolphin Market which seems to be open all year including Christmas. We shopped there and made a number of our meals in the house. The touristy North Shore beaches are 30 minutes away and are fine if you don’t mind a lot of people. You need to get there early to get parking. At the bottom of the hill from the house is a common beach area that is owned by the homeowners association. It is a nice rocky beach area with some of the best snorkeling on the island. We are divers so we would rate this snorkeling #2 to Waterlemon Cay. Don’t miss Privateer Bay for snorkeling as well- on the BVI side of the hill near the house. The house has a small pool that overlooks Hansen Bay if you want to cool off at the house. The owners have everything in the house you could possibly want from snorkeling equipment, coolers, condiments, wifi, cable tv, air conditioning in the bedrooms, etc. The one thing I would say is that you are best renting a Jeep to get to and from this house. There are many steep roads and driveways that you are best doing in a Jeep due to its approach clearance. I am generally not a fan of Jeeps but in this case I am. We rented one on St Thomas at the airport and took the car ferry. It was convenient in that we only had to pile our luggage in the Jeep and go but you can also take a passenger ferry to Cruz Bay and rent one there instead. Either works. For a family of 4, a 4 door Wrangler was perfect and had room for all of our luggage. Plan on a full day for travel but once you are there it’s worth it.

Wild Jasmine is the jewel of St. John!

  • 5 of 5

In planning our trip to the island, we spent over a month researching villas in various locations. We chose Wild Jasmine for its location on the East End of the island and its expansive views of Coral Bay to the west and the Caribbean Sea to the south. In all of our travels around the island, we did not see another villa with the privacy and views that Wild Jasmine provided. Isabelle and William are awesome people and were the perfect hosts during our stay. Isabelle's creative touch is felt all over the property, from the exotic landscaping to the upscale, comfortable, and spotlessly clean villa interior. William provided us with information on the best beaches, restaurants, and events on the island which helped jumpstart our trip. They also provided beach chairs and towels as well as two kayaks for use during our stay. On our final day, we awoke to a double rainbow over Coral Bay, a site which I am told is quite frequent!! We would never dream of staying anywhere else on St. John and will be back next year!!

Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Wild Jasmine and I loved it! I was looking for someplace that was peaceful, quiet, tasteful and yet adventurous…somewhere close to the best snorkeling with a very genuine feel about it and this place turned out to be perfect! The house is super comfortable and decorated beautifully with a roomy, well-appointed kitchen which is so important as we all know-it even has both a large fridge for groceries and a smaller one for drinks. Gorgeous bed in the master...slept really well the entire stay. The views are AMAZING…as are the sunsets..from every room in the house, the full-length deck, the pool. Truly some of the best I saw-and I just about explored every road, nook and cranny on the island.

Some of the best snorkeling on the island can also only be accessed easily from here. The house includes a private beach with access to Pelican’s Rock where I saw giant turtles, nurse sharks, large families of squid, rays, big puffer fish, and tons of colorful fish and corals. (Don't worry about the sharks...they are docile and harmless and you are lucky to see one!) The other top snorkel spot on the island with some of the prettiest corals and most abundant fish is Haulover North (down the trail and then swim left) which is only a very short drive from the house. Kayaks are also available for exploring the closer bays. It’s also close to Hansen Bay, Haulover South and Salt Pond Bay which also have good snorkeling/ hiking and are nice, beautiful, uncrowded (yes!) beaches.

There are great restaurants in the area-Aqua Bistro, Indigo Grill, and Skinny Legs Bar & Grill, all of which are recommended. You can get a yummy smoothie at Columbo’s on the way to the North Shore Beaches too :)

I found the East End to be my favorite place on the island…it’s very special-the brilliant turquoise waters, the lack of tourists, the smell in the air. (Hopefully, you’ll get lucky and the Mock Orange trees will be blooming.) If you want to feel like you actually got away from it all, had an adventure and really lived the island life in comfort, Wild Jasmine will definitely do that for you.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I took a trip to this villa and had an absolutely amazing time! We were able to use the grill, and spent a lot of time at the pool at the villa. Of course the beaches were amazing, but the villa was such a wonderful place to return home to. We primarily ate out, but did grill one night. William & Isabelle were very welcoming and left a great bottle of wine and a sweet welcome card when we arrived. It was a much needed vacation for both of us! I will recommend renting a jeep over a sedan to get to this portion of St. John. The terrain is tough after a certain point. The private beach about 5 minutes away is stunning, and we enjoyed some tremendous snorkeling right off the bay. It was the highlight of our trip simply because the beach was all ours! I would recommend bringing water shoes as there are a few sea urchins. But it is so worth it to have a beach 100% to yourselves. Stunning. We had a wonderful time!

Spectacular house with a gorgeous view!!

  • 5 of 5

Thankfully, our family selected this gorgeous house as our vacation spot to celebrate 2 graduations, two 50th birthdays, and a 25th wedding anniversary! This house was PERFECT in every way, and far exceeded our expectations!! The views off the back deck and pool area were breathtaking, and we spent many morning having coffee and many evenings having drinks while taking in the beauty of Hansen Bay. William was a most gracious and accommodating host! It was so nice having someone that lived on the island giving us advice on the best places to snorkel, eat, hike, etc. We were very sad to have our stay at such a beautiful place come to an end! Hopefully, we will have an opportunity to return to Wild Jasmine in the future!

Amazing Home in St. John, USVI

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience staying at this home. William was very accommodating and the house was in a perfect location. The view was breathtaking, the house cozy, quiet and relaxing. The home decor had so many nice touches that really made it an awesome place to stay. William went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and was a great source of information about the island, the best places to go and things to see. The kayaks near the house were wonderful to use for exploring the seemingly private beach. Staying at this home on St. John made me feel like I was living as a local and in on all the island secrets! Look no further for a St. John home and book this listing now.
