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

Why Stephanie Annise chose Estate Rendezvous and Ditlef

When we saw Villa L'Agave we knew we had found what we had been looking for! Come enjoy the amazing views, the Island's plants and animals, the convenient and private location and everything St John has to offer!!!!!

What makes this villa unique

Our 'On Island' team makes it easy and convenient for you to ship goods before your arrival, stock the refrigerator for your arrival, set up rentals of everything from Jeeps to hikes to snorkel equipment! We look forward to helping you have your best vacation ever!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The gratitude, appreciation, and pure awe I have for Stephanie & Max Annise can never be completely expressed. Their generosity is more than any other people I have ever met. They opened their vacation home (Villa L'Agave) to us after our world was literally turned upside down after the storms. They provided us a home when ours was lost. They provided me and my island family with a safe place to laugh, eat, cry, process, and recover until we got back on our feet. Without them, I don’t know where I would be. Here is the kicker...I have never met them. I did not know who they were before the storms. They stepped up and offered generosity like I have never seen. Truly great souls. Check out Villa L'Agave. Book it. It’s the beautiful villa I called home for the past 3 months. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Absolutely Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa L'Agave. We absolutely love the place! It's the perfect distance to Cruz Bay, the bars and restaurants not to mention all of the Magnificent North Shore beaches of St John. The home and cottage had everything we needed when we decided to grill/cook one night. One of the best advertised 'secrets' is the owner's willingness to rent his Jeep Renegade. 'One Stop Shopping' at its best. We will definitely return and want to thank Max and Stephanie for renting Villa L'Agave to us - we will be back!

Perfection In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the most quaint little compound!

The views to St Croix - YES, St. Croix on clear days - was magnificent. The villa has beautiful views from every window and door. The modern kitchen had every convenience our home kitchen had (and more!). We loved the privacy of L'agave and the proximity to Cruz Bay. Dabney from Love City Management met us at the ferry and took us to the Villa. She had lots of recommendations for our time on St John. But our favorite 'activity' was sitting at the pool sipping drinks as the sun set. Thank you Villa L'agave for a memorable vacation.

Returning visitors to St. John, this trip we booked Villa L’Agave. The Villa offered us everything we would have wanted and so much more. This villa has been designed with anticipating every desire a visitor may need. the Villa has the most beautiful views to multiple bays.Close to Cruz Bay, you can be quickly downtown for dinner and shopping or off to the beaches. Max and Stephanie are the most gracious hosts. We were greeted by Brandon with a smile and the best check in process ever to this beautiful Villa. They have gone so far as to update their information binder to include all post storm information you will need during your stay.

We cooked several dinner meals at the Villa. The modern kitchen has everything you need. No matter what we cooked, if you thought you might need a special pan, bowl, or utensil, it was there!

There is also a grill on the gorgeous courtyard for easy grilling.

The bar was well stocked.

We highly recommend booking a stay! You will not be disappointed.

Villa L'Agave & St John are glorious!

The views are gorgeous.

The main house was comfortable, spacious & had everything we needed during our vacation.

Brandon & his team provided great information and had the fridge stocked with our order.

Max & Stephanie, the home owners, made booking a breeze. Thanks for sharing your home.

We look forward to next year's St John vacation at Villa L'Agave.

Fabulous Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous Villa!

This was our 4th trip to St John & first time at Villa L'Agave. This was the nicest Villa rental yet!

We were a bit worried reading the previous review about rats & scorpions but we are SO glad we relied on past previous reviews.

The home was spotless, not a scorpion to be found & no sign of rats anywhere.

The location is amazing, the views & grounds are lovely and Brandon /team stocked the home before our arrival.

We rented the Jeep & this 'one stop shopping' helped make our vacation even more stress free & fun.

We will for sure be back.

Thank you Max, Stephanie & Team Brandon!
