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 ... with all the amenities of home.
Stone paths meander through flowering gardens surrounding this lovely property.
The villa is located above and directly in the middle of a beautiful beach, giving it a commanding unobstructed vantage point of the water, where you can watch resident sea turtles and sail boats passing by, while relaxing on the deck or by the pool.
Because the property (one of the few on St John) faces directly west, you will enjoy a magnificent view of Coral Bay, with a spectacular nightly light show of a kaleidoscope of colors, including oranges, pinks, purples, yellows and blues, dancing off the water and surrounding mountains, that guests have described as the most amazing sunset views.
This hidden East End gem is secluded, undeveloped, quiet and how St John was many years ago, vastly different from crowded and noisy Cruz Bay or even the West side of Coral Bay. Perfect for nature lovers and those seeking solitude. Here, you will see wild donkeys, goats, sheep, deer, mongoose, iguana, and many varieties of birds and lizards.
The 180 degree 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. Because it is semi-private, often you will be the only people on the beach and can enjoy the beach in solitude. Another great beach with soft white sand is just a 5 minute further walk away. Finally, 2 more beaches (both good for snorkeling) are within an easy 5 minute drive. Because many beaches on the island are not swimmable or accessible, there simply is nowhere else on the island where so many fine beaches are so close by your accommodations.
We provide all that you will need to enjoy the fabulous water: snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler and 2 kayaks. The kayaks will be your best way to explore the pristine reefs and beautiful coves in Coral Bay.
We'll tell you the best restaurants, trails and sites that you will want to see, so that you get the most out of your holiday.
So mark your calendar and pack your bags, it's vacation time.
Villa caretakers live nearby to assist you in any way they can to make this the vacation of your dreams.
NOTE: This is a non-smoking property. There is no smoking inside or outside, anywhere on the property. No smokers please.

Elopement to St. John
This trip was especially special because it was our first time in the USVI. Absolutely perfect location, away from all the traffic and noise from the Cruz Bay area. The pictures were exactly as described and instructions were clear from prior arrival to departure. Hope to make this an annual visit!
The house was well-appointed and the views....amazing! Danielle was great, too! To the owners...thank you for sharing your home. We had the best vacation!
Great East End vacation home, excellant hosts!
My husband, me, and friends (another couple) enjoyed the sunsets, star gazing and relaxation of Wild Jasmine. This was a fantastic spot with easy availability of a nearby private beach. It was great to use the included kayaks, conveniently stored right on the beach. The views from the huge deck were glorious. The living space was very lovely and generously sized for two couples. The kitchen well equiped! It is nice that the two bedrooms are private as they are separated by the living room, each with en suite bathrooms and deck access. Beach chairs and a cooler is provided. William and Isabelle were very helpful as needed, as they live nearby, while providing all the privacy we wanted. I can't say enough good things about Wild Jasmine! It's our favorite vacation home yet on St. John.
My wife & I spent six nights at Wild Jasmine Villa, and we loved it. We rented a jeep from St. John car rental and loved exploring the Island, stopping at lots of beaches, small cafes and shops. The Villa had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck, with the beautiful view. The house is facing west so it has very nice sunsets. We plan to come back to St. John Island, loved the natural beauty, beaches, and William and Isabelle were wonderful hosts. Thank You
Great place, great people, great time!
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!
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!!
