News of St. John is thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new service! News of St. John Villa Rentals is a website to showcase short term rentals and connect renters with property owners at no cost. Check it out at Newsofstjohnvillarentals.com or access it from the navigation menu on News of St. John.
Today, we are revisiting two amazing villas, perched high above Great Cruz Bay. Between the two homes there are two pools, six bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, two beautifully equipped kitchens and a wide variety of exquisite indoor and outdoor lounging and dining areas from which you can enjoy that beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. These villas can be rented separately with total privacy. Or you can rent them both and open a privacy door to a long walkway that connects the expansive verandas. Oh, and the new website allows you to BOOK DIRECT, avoiding the high fees of a third-party service! Let’s take a closer look at The Other World and Villa L’Autre Monde….
If you haven’t already booked your winter or spring getaway to St. John, you are probably right now in the process of looking around for an incredible retreat for your family and friends. The stunning Chocolate Hole villa I am sharing with you today combines luxury, privacy and seamless outdoor living surrounded by mother nature and views of the Caribbean. All within a ten-minute drive to the shopping and dining of Cruz Bay and St. John’s stunning white sand beaches. Even at first glance, it’s quite obvious why a budding young country star, years ago, loved coming home to this beautiful space to get some inspiration for some of his number one hits (if you know, you know :)). Let’s take a closer look at Villa De Vida, a quaint and charming three-bedroom pool villa that could be your next Love City retreat!
Good Morning, Good Morning! I know we cover a ton of Real Estate here on News of St. John. But, this post is dedicated to those of you looking for your next vacation rental! WindSong Villa encapsulates the perfect escape for a family or group of friends. Four Primary Suites with exquisite private baths, mountain and ocean views, 6000 square feet of luxurious outdoor and interior living and entertaining areas combine to make this the perfect vacation destination for up to eight guests. Oh, and for the first time in twelve years, this home is ready to welcome guests AND they have very limited availability. So, if you like what you see here, act fast. This divine home will book up quickly!
You know that feeling of not really feeling like you’re actually ON vacation until you’re half way finished with it? How about the feeling of missing out on the island hopping that the British Virgin Islands once provided us with? Well, I may have a solution for those of you who can sympathize with those sentiments. St. Croix is just a boat or sea plane ride away from St. John OR a great weekend stop on your way here. And, there’s a funky little beachfront hotel near the pier in downtown Frederiksted that will be sure to get you into vacation mode straightaway.
You just got off the ferry after traveling for twelve plus hours. All you want to do is drop your bags, dig your feet into the sand and kick back with a rum drink and a burger in front of you. But, first, you have to get your rental car, drive 20 minutes to your villa, unload the car and THEN drive back to town and hassle with finding parking. If you got off the 4’o’clock boat, it will be way past “5’o’clock somewhere” before you have completed your mission.
Sound familiar? Well, today I have to share with you a bit about Wharfside Village and the new luxury accommodations located just steps from the ferry dock and “stumbling distance” to ALL of your favorite Cruz Bay watering holes…Oh, and definitely keep reading. There are some sneak peaks of what’s next at Wharfside Village included here as well!
Alright, let’s face it…We all LOVE St. John. But “convenience” isn’t necessarily a synonym of Love City. Well, what if I told you, there is now a deluxe accommodation that is just steps away from groceries, organic lunch and juices, the best coffee on island (in my opinion!) and necessity shopping that is a few moments walk from the ferry dock but away from the noise of the evening crowds? Let’s dive in and take a closer look at the Marketplace Suites….
Good Morning! I have seen A LOT of messages and posts about last minute rentals. With the predictably busy summer season upon us, accommodations have been tough to find. Well, for those of you on the hunt, I have to share with you today a newly renovated, boutique style rental that is just a moment’s stroll from downtown Cruz Bay. The Peacock is a fresh listing on the vacation rental market, has all the comforts of home, beautiful views, and funky decor.
Well folks, Thanksgiving is creeping up on us which means the Holiday Season is right around the corner. Many of you may look forward to this time of year for large family gatherings and re-connecting with your loved ones. Unfortunately, for many, the current pandemic may keep us away from these larger gatherings due to concern over the spread of the virus and the health of our more “at-risk” family members.
Due to all of this, 2020 might be the year that you finally take that holiday trip that you’ve been thinking about for a long while. With family traditions potentially on pause until a vaccination is widely accessible, a simple getaway to St. John in a private villa with your immediate family might be the holiday rest and relaxation you need.
The USVI is OPEN to visitors again as of tomorrow and we want to highlight a luxury lodging option that is close to town with all of the amenities and incredible views.
