THE ISLAND

St. John is a natural gem and one of three U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. Two thirds of the island are designated national park land; this equals to 7,200 acres of land and 5,600 acres underwater! The island is just a 15-minute ferry ride from St. Thomas, its sister island.  No passport is required, as it is part of U.S. Territory.

PRIVATE VILLA

Nestled on a sparsely populated bay, the villa is located just a few minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, where fresh local dining casual eateries and unique artists’ shops dot the waterfront city. The villa features accommodations and a private beach access to make this location perfect for activities or relaxing beside the private pool. 

DINING

Flavor, flair, and fire are just a few words that can describe the array of dining spots in downtown St. John. Cruz Bay is safe and easy to get around by foot or open air cab.
