About the property

Stone Main House(2 bedroom/2 bathroom) and a Guest House(1 bedroom 1 bathroom)

Welcome to our Rustic European family retreat!

We now have a new, 2016 Jeep Renegade available for rent - Ask us about it!

The main stone home (L’Agave) and guest house (Petite Agave) are a mix of modern and charming old world elegance possessing incredible views of multiple Bays - Great Cruz, Chocolate Hole, Hart, Klein & Rendezvous. On a clear day you can easily see St. Croix.

Upon your arrival, you will pass through our electric gate down a secluded driveway surrounded by lush tropical plants, ending in a garden path. A stone archway and wrought iron entrance welcomes you to an expansive stone courtyard connecting the main house and the guest house. In the stone courtyard you will find a gas grill and seating for Alfresco dining. The Main two story home includes a mahogany kitchen, 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. The Guest House provides an additional full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, outdoor shower and room to spread out for a larger family or a group.

The property has 5 different dining options, each with its own unique character – 3 outdoor and 2 indoor. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. Fans throughout the property (inside and outside) keep the air flowing at all times. The Property has the latest WiFi technology.

Lounge in the sun or the shade on one of the many chaises and seating options available throughout the upper and lower property. Picturesque stone stairs lead from the stone courtyard down to the pool deck enabling guests to access the pool without disturbing anyone in either house. Splash in the gorgeous pool off the deck and enjoy the amazing views!

Your villa is a short ride to beaches, Cruz Bay shopping and dining. Beach towels, beach chairs and coolers are provided for your enjoyment.

Our 'On Island' family will meet you at the ferry and take you to your villa. They can assist with jeep rental, kayak & paddle board rental, restaurant reservations, and so much more!

About Stephanie Annise

We have been travelling to St John for over 23 years. We love to get away and unplug from our busy daily routines. During our travels and time on St John we have searched for a home that combines both old European and Caribbean charm.

Stephanie Annise purchased this villa in 2014

We looked at so many homes when planning our family trip to St. John. Finally we landed on Villa L'Agave. Owners Stephanie and Max, as well as the Crandall on St. John team were beyond accommodating, attentive and thoughtful. It was a very easy decision to select this home.

We had several changes in our literary from adjustments in travel dates and guest counts. They were happy to help us make everything work.

Villa L'Agave is a dynamic property. It's so thoughtfully cared for. The landscaping is lush, with lots of unique florals and foliage. The indoor-outdoor feel of the property allowed for commanding views from every room, and for a unique tropical island experience.

As a group of 6, we rented both the guest house and the main house. The compound set-up allowed for privacy, yet we were just a few steps away from each other.

The home is well-appointed, and clean! There is even a fully-stocked bar, where you replace what you use...Sound is piped outside on the porches, which is great. We could only get one channel to work, but - it was the channel we liked, so no big deal. You certainly don't need any A/C at this home, however having A/C in the bedrooms was an added bonus.

The pool was the perfect size, and the deck caught the afternoon sun. The breeze was just perfect. Our family had a great time sitting on the mixed soft seating and lounge chairs watching the numerous iguanas, lizards and birds. From the porch you could see the views of Hart Bay, Chocolate Hole, Great Cruz Bay and Rendezvous Bay. At night, the sky was intense with stars, and you could see the faint lights of St. Croix in the distance.

Crandall was quick to meet us, and to make any accommodations we needed, from car rentals, re-stocking beach chairs, and even helping us with finding the best spots to eat.

The drive up to the home was an experience. It took us a couple of time, but, started to feel like a pro by the second day.

We can't wait to come back to St. John, and so happy we found this home.

Great place to stay just outside of Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it. Very easy to work with for booking and the management company while on the island. The house was very clean and perfect. The view was fantastic and the location was both far enough from Cruz Bay to have some privacy/quiet but also close enough to easily get to things (5-7 min drive max). I'd definitely rent this again!

We loved everything about our recent stay at L'Agave!! It couldn't have been a better location (definitely recommend a Jeep), the home was just adorable, perfectly rustic and authentic but comfortable with all the modern amenities you could ask for. Literally our home away from home for the week! The view was BREATHTAKING every minute of every day! You just never get sick of it. Breakfast out on the deck every morning, watching a quick storm come in off the ocean, sitting by the pool in the evenings, the view is spectacular!! Airy and open upstairs with a perfect breeze off the ocean and then comfortable sleeping in the lower level with A/C. They've thought of everything. The property managers were wonderful with an immediate visit to change a lightbulb! The owners were fantastic as well! They are lucky to get rid of us because we would have stayed forever! Thanks for sharing your home!!

We just got back from the most amazing trip to St. John. Booking was easy and L'Agave surpassed our expectations. The property manager, Crandall-on-St-John, took care of everything for us while we were there and the communication with them prior to our trip was excellent. We were struck by the gorgeous view the moment we walked in. The amenities were great - we even grilled out a few nights. We'd love to bring the kiddo back with us one day. I'm sure he would love the property as much as my husband and I did. Perfect location.

L' AGAVE is exactly as advertised.

Our family of 5 had the best time ever!

The owners helped us make decisions before we even booked with them! Crandall-on -St John, the property manager not only rented us our jeep, they stocked the fridge - with the list I sent before we got there - for us too.

We were so impressed with the whole property. Courtyard,decks, pool, houses....perfect.

We hit every beach - including a few we would have missed if the owners had not mentioned them.... We enjoyed grilling, eating out in town, EVERYTHING about our St John vacation. GREAT FIND

Thank you, thank you, thank you !

We just got home from a super fun vacation in ST JOHN.

Your beautiful home - including the guest house - was an AMAZING value! We loved having all the space four our family of 4.

It was close enough to town to pop in when we wanted & far enough out of town & situated in such a way as to feel completely private....

The kids had a blast in the pool & "their own private house" and we enjoyed lounging on the decks each morning & evening.

We just can't say thank you enough for sharing your home with us.
