Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Sundancer Villa; a wonderful yet affordable retreat villa for a romantic, quiet vacation for two or the perfect getaway for a small family or friends. Sitting high on a hill overlooking Fish Bay, Ditliff Point and St. Croix off in the distance, with the gentle sounds of Fish Bay surf. With our two air conditioned bedrooms and two baths, plus a huge loft with a private deck, you have all the comforts and privacy you will need. We have equipped Sundancer with brand new kitchen and baths and all modern amenities for our own extended stays plus we constantly update her with new appliances, furniture and wonderful artwork. The covered dining area faces the spectacular views as well as all of the expansive outdoor area which includes your own totally private hot tub and small swimming pool.

Fish Bay is convenient to Cruz Bay (our town) but is in a very quiet residential area. While in the past, many of the Fish Bay community's roads were gravel, all main roads are now paved including the climb up our own street to Sundancer! Many of our couples and families return to Sundancer year after year and lavish our guest book with accolades about the quiet, privacy and amenities of Sundancer. Sundancer is eco friendly with solar heated hot tub, solar powered pool and hot tub pumps and full rooftop solar voltaic system. Our environment just seems to bring out the peace and romance needed on a tropical vacation!

About Sherri Feld

We live at Sundancer three months per year and the rest of the time, we live in Central Florida in a community for active adults known as 'The Villages'. We had been wintering in the Caribbean for about 10 years before we bought Sundancer in 1998 and we have many family members and friends join us each year including our five grandchildren who love to come to 'Gammy and Poppy's Sundancer'.

Sherri Feld purchased this villa in 1998

Why Sherri Feld chose USVI/St. John

Bob is in the travel business and we have traveled extensively throughout the world and the Caribbean and each time we traveled elsewhere, we always thought of our beloved St. John because we love to swim, snorkel, scuba and just sit on the beach reading a good book. The fact that over half of St. John has been given to the National Park Service as the Virgin Island National Park makes St. John like no other Caribbean island. The world class beaches on the north shore of St. John are in their natural state and are guaranteed to stay that way forever. They are an easy 20 minute ride from Sundancer and they are a daily part of our routine while we are at Sundancer ourselves.

What makes this villa unique

The fact that we spend so much time at Sundancer encourages us to equip the home for our own personal tastes rather than bare bones rental home features. We picked Sundancer because it was and still is totally private from the eyes of neighbors and roads. If we need to spend some time in our 'birthday suits', there is no reason not to. We enjoy good music so there is a good sound system with Bluetooth and MP3 connection cables with speakers inside, in the outdoor dining area and on the pool deck. We enjoy cooking so there is a top rate Weber grill and every cooking tool you could want. We built the spacious deck for the pool and hot tub with lots of umbrella shade. The deck rails were designed to allow an unobstructed view of the Caribbean while sitting on the chaise lounges and in the hot tub, enjoying the music, drinking a margarita and watching the sun set and cruise ships roll out from St. Thomas! It just doesn't get any better! After all these years, we know St. John well and have left a book with recommended restaurants and menus for your nights on the town (10 minute drive). For a special dinner, make a reservation at ZoZo's in Caneel Bay at Sunset. Tell John (the owner) you are guests of Bob & Carol Ann Faucett. He will take very good care of you! While we constantly strive to keep Sundancer up to date with replacement furniture, appliances and artwork, there are few villas on pricey St. John that can offer the amenities that we do at the very affordable rates we ask. We have always wanted to make Sundancer available to as many folks as possible. Enjoy and feel free to ask questions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Another amazing stay at Sundancer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently returned from our annual trip to Sundancer. We now call it our home away from home! The views, pool, hot tub, tranquility and daily visits from our feathered friends make it the perfect vacation spot. We had such fun swimming and snorkeling at the magnificent beaches and loved returning in the evening to the incredible canopy of stars on display outside our door. The management company and jeep rental crew at Just Sun Jeeps took great care of us. Counting the days until we can return!

The Sundancer: A Gateway to Adventure and Romance

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 4 this was the ideal location; scenic view was unbeatable;close to expansive linking hiking trails;fun short jaunts to secluded beaches;not far from main sites and famous attractions and beaches. Each venture out was an adventure which was exactly why we chose St. John.

Each night back at Sundancer in the hot tub with the sound system playing outside was a perfect way to relax and re-energize. Driving around the island is an adventure in itself if not for the hairpin turns, the mountainous terrain with some unpaved areas, or the occasional stops to avoid grazing or road crossing cows,goats,donkeys,large crabs iguanas,deer,and an egret.

This place is great for those seeking almost anything. It is virtually isolated by surrounding woods to provide total privacy for intimate romantic moments. Anybody that can get here would find this villa a good fit.The sightseeing is unsurpassed, the linking hiking trails that have an entry point within walking distance just up the hill from the Sundancer offer a fabulous chance to view the botanical and animal life as well as historic ruins, a waterfall, petroglyphs, and a very secluded beach. On top of this, the Sundancer is within 10-15 minutes from Cruz Bay and its restaurants, half and full day boat excursions, sails, and shopping. St.John is a small island, so getting to the north side of the island is only about a 20 minute trip, and getting to the far side of the island and Coral Bay, Salt Pond Bay, and Drunk Bay takes less than 45 minutes. Rent a jeep and have a ball exploring. The snorkeling is fantastic, and the snorkel trail at Trunk Bay is worthwhile, but you will search out better snorkel areas on and offshore.

Every meal that we ate out was at a different place, and they were all delightfully delicious, and each eatery had its own niche characteristic. You owe it to yourself to dine with the Skinny Legs folks, Woody's crew, and a treat of a Smoothie at Columbo's roadside spot. Each will force you to smile as you leave; you won't be able to help yourself.

Sailing with Cpt. Jason on the Cloud 9 was great! Whether you want to scuba, snorkel, sail aimlessly or to a destination,just tell Cpt. Jason, and your wish becomes his command,and Cpt.Jason magically takes you to exactly the right spots to fullfill your desire. Other boats dictate where you go, but you decide on the Cloud 9.

Sundancer has everything you need except food and trash removal. Alas,we had to leave for home.I'll be back!

Lovely week with family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Excellent week spent exploring St John with Sundancer as our home base. Exciting driving in our Jeep on Fish Bay's steep roads to the island's snorkeling beaches. Gorgeous secluded location with a truly mind boggling view. We will cherish memories of sitting outside, gazing at the turquoise waters and enjoying the birds at the feeder. Comfortable nicely decorated home. Owner and agent made rental arrangements easy and stress-free. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. Nicely appointed kitchen for meals at home. A/C in bedrooms and laundry downstairs. Hiked to ruins from the house. We would definitely come back in a heartbeat!!

Great stay after being away for 10 years!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I loved our stay at Sundancer. It was my first time back to St. John after 10 years, and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Wonderful views of Fish Bay, and the sea. The house, pool, and hot tub were perfect. My girlfriend is from Lithuania and she couldn't believe that there were places like Sundancer, the beaches, the people, everything.

Everyone involved with Sundancer, from making the reservation to having the owners call to welcome us, just made our stay wonderful. They even had the fridge stocked for us. Incredible!!!!

We are already working on plans to come back this winter. We can't wait. And we're going to stay at Sundancer again!

Loved, loved , loved Sundancer!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with several adult children) spent the holidays vacationing at Sundancer. We had a wonderful time! Our children said it was the best family vacation we have ever taken (and we have taken them on cruises, Jamaica, Cozumel, Riviera Maya, etc). We are planning to return to St. John next year for another family vacation. Sundancer is located in Fish Bay, just a short drive from Cruz Bay and the north shore beaches. Sundancer has a beautiful view of the bay and surrounding mountains, in a very quiet neighborhood. The villa was perfect for us. The kitchen was well stocked. It has two large bedrooms and baths and a large loft bedroom. The two lower level bedrooms were air conditioned, although we never had to use it. Great ocean breezes kept the temperature perfect. We especially enjoyed the huge outside deck, hot tub, and pool. We spent most of our time (when not on the beach) outside on the deck. When not hiking the National Park trails, we spent our mornings walking in Fish Bay.--- great area for walking. The parking at the villa could be a challenge, but once a driver masters the five point turn, no problem. The management company had someone meet us in Cruz Bay and escort us to the villa. They left us with a bag of staples to get us through until we could get to the grocery. The owners were easy to work with--- they even called while we were there to make sure everything was OK. All of the restaurants in Cruz Bay are very good. Check out Woody's or Joe's Rum Hut for happy hour. A trip to Skinny Legs and Ms. Lucy's in Coral Bay for lunch/dinner is a must. A great villa for the price!

Makes Me Long for Where I Really Wanna Be...Somewhere in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I, along with another couple, headed down to St. John this past fall and absolutely fell in love with the island. This rental unit was perfect for us. It had ample space, which included a good-sized kitchen, a well-lit porch and deck with a hammock, lounge chairs, pool and jacuzzi, two bathrooms, and two large bedrooms (there is also a loft we didn't use). Located literally on a mountain side, Sundancer offers a beautiful view overlooking Fish Bay and even better sunsets each day around dusk. When opened, the sliding glass doors let in the ocean breeze that kept everyone cool at night. For rainy days there are a number of board games, books, and CD's to keep the family entertained for hours. It's a short drive to all the north shore beaches and even closer to Cruz Bay for downtown shopping or bar hopping. The driveway is a little narrow, but you'll get the hang of it by day two. This is a wonderful getaway. Highly recommended.
