About Randy Hervey
Our California home had a beautiful view of the Pacific but our lives in the civilized world were corporate encrusted, freeway driven, and mall dominated. When a business opportunity arose in the year 2000, we took a leap of faith and traded our Catalina Island view for a view of St Croix and a less complicated not so 'civilized' life in the islands. This beautiful paradise called St. John is a wonderful place to be. We like to tell first time visitors to the island: 'Not many people come to St. John, just once!' It's true.
Randy Hervey purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Randy Hervey chose Estate Bethany
This villa is literally built 'Up On The Rocks', actually, huge boulders. These boulders and rock cliffs that make up the property provide quite a unique back drop. The home was rebuilt to be attractive to guests that insist on nicely appointed and comfortable accommodations but are also budget conscious. "Up On The Rocks" is the ideal choice for the informed island visitors who prefer to spend their time and budget at the 35 beautiful beaches and on the pristine waters that make the island such a famous place, instead of, at the villa or resort pool.
What makes this Villa unique
The home, uniquely surrounded by huge boulders, is perched high above the bays commanding a spectacular panorama view. It is around the hill and away from the hustle bustle of the village of Cruz Bay but conveniently located a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk, to town. Total renovation just completed in March 2015. Everything, inside and out, is brand new!

I would like to thank both Randy and Henry for their hospitality. We stayed at the beautiful “Up on The Rocks” April 2-10. Our trip started out with every glitch you can imagine. Our plane was supposed to arrive early afternoon and didn’t arrive until after 9 pm. It arrived without all our luggage. Our delay caused us to miss the car ferry and left us scrambling for the last people ferry over. Henry maintained my sanity all day and was a refreshing sight at 10:30 pm waiting for us at the dock. He was kind enough to bring us to the store so we would be able to have cream for our coffee in the morning. He became my hero! We lost power on the Island due to a fire a couple days later. To our surprise, Randy and Henry kept us on generator as late in the am as we needed and then at night to keep us comfortable. The island, at the time, was without WiFi. Amazingly, they got that for us too. The place is super stocked with everything including a beautiful laundry room. The view, spectacular! We also had the companionship of a cute, friendly kitty each morning and night. I can’t say enough about Randy and Henry. They made our stay wonderful. Thank you.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at "Up On the Rocks". It is a comfortable, well-provisioned villa with spectacular views and a great location. It was just the two of us, but the villa is roomy enough for 4 people. The furniture was comfy and the bathrooms were beautiful. We spent most of our time on the huge deck enjoying the view and the breezes. We loved it so much, we've already booked it for next year!
BC & CB
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and want thank you for taking time to give such a nice review.
You were great guests and we look forward to your return next year.
We enjoyed our stay at Up on the rocks! The house was laid out very nice and the view was great!
My husband and I really enjoyed the house . It has all the amenities you need and the views from deck were great . We even cooked dinner twice during our stay. I look forward to visiting again in the future.
Better Than Advertised!
We've stayed in several St. John villas over the years and no other two bedroom compares on both the quality of the amenities and the simplicity and ease of Up on the Rocks. Located just a few minutes from the Centerline roundabout, Up on the Rocks is in a perfect location for guests to be part of the Cruz Bay activity yet quickly be home. I would recommend this villa to any family of four looking to enjoy all that St. John has to offer.
A/C will freeze you out
Just returned from here and we loved it. We have a great view to sit out at night and watch the lights and watch the morning and afternoon views. The actual place is top notch renovation. They had everything you could possibly want. I am a home designer and wife is a real estate agent and the place is fantastic and comfortable, meaning we know our dwellings.
The A/C in the bedrooms with the door shut will freeze you out, which if you have had a hot day, is a welcome night sleep. (My last visit to St John the A/C at a different villa went out and it was miserable.
I thought the driveway was going to be an issue but after the 1st time and making it up backwards, I was a pro at it. This place is great for 2 couples with the split rooms and bathrooms. Gives each their own privacy.
Definitely recommend this villa
P.S. the villa kitty is friendly.
The view from the porch was amazing, we spent most nights grilling out there
St John is famous for it's 35 pristine beaches. The snorkeling is superb, many of the bays are ideal for paddle boarders of all levels. The vast array of hiking trails are in great condition thanks somewhat to the efforts of the national park. Come, rent a Jeep and explore this beautiful island and the many things it has to offer.
