ROMANTIC PRIVATE POOL VILLA, AMAZING VIEWS, GREAT LOCATION-NEAR BEACHES & TOWN

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Cruz Bay - Perelandra

2 bedrooms, 2 baths 1-2 &3-4 guests have different rates Read rates carefully

The views, privacy, comfort, and romantic ambiance of this intimate, elegant villa will delight you. Clinging to the hillside above Cruz Bay, Perelandra's breathtaking views sweep from the deserted cays nestled in the Windward Passage to the sailboats skimming through Pillsbury Sound to the spectacular sunsets resting upon St. Thomas. Later in the evening, St. Thomas' twinkling lights provide a romantic backdrop to your evening.

The villa's perfect location offers proximity to town -- with its ferries, restaurants, and shops -- and to the world-famous National Park beaches of the North Shore while also providing complete privacy among lush landscaping.

Perelandra offers two luxuriously appointed bedrooms -- each with its own air-conditioning, and two large bathrooms -- each with a large walk-in shower. There is a queen sized sofa bed in the living rom. This meticulously-crafted home includes cove molding, mood lighting, Saltilo tiles, exotic woods, and ceiling fans throughout

Glass tiles set in the vaulted ceilings bathe the living areas in light. Bedroom and great room doors open out onto two levels of wrap-around decks and verandas which, in turn, lead to the beautiful, refreshing swimming pool -- perfectly sized to be large enough to cool off and exercise in (10 x 18) but small enough to warm up quickly in the sun. While the pool area provides beautiful views of the ocean and St. Thomas, others can not view you as it is surrounded by garden walls and verdant foliage and flowers.

Perelandra is very-well provisioned. Its kitchen provides everything you'll need to fix snacks for the beach, to make your own Caribbean drinks to sip poolside or while watching the sunset, or to prepare that romantic dinner for just the two of you. Special kitchen features include a large side-by-side refrigerator with ice-maker, range with built-in griddle, chef-quality pots and pans, and designer dinnerware.

Additional amenities also include a new washer and dryer, 2 tv's, many games, CDs, DVDs, videos, phones upstairs and down with answering machine, beach chairs and towels, picnic coolers, beach bags. See the extensive list below of all additional amenities provided for your comfort and convenience. All items are top quality.

Perelandra is perfect for a romantic interlude for the two of you, for two couples vacationing together (bedrooms are equally desirable), or for a family with children.

Why Linda Gallagher chose Cruz Bay

Who wouldn't want to own a piece of Paradise? We looked at lots of houses on the island and Perelandra was the perfect villa for us.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was my first time to St. John and the second time for the rest of our group. It was very nice to be met at the ferry dock by someone from Cimmaron and take us directly to the house and give us a tour. One of my favorite parts of the house was the amazing view!!!!!! It was amazing to see beautiful sunsets and enjoy a picturesque view everyday!!! We could see some awesome boats and the group of iguanas that live in the tree just below the house!! It was fun to search the tree everyday/night to see where they would be sunning. The house was surrounded by beautiful manicured landscaping and really added to the look of the villa. The drive from Cruz Bay to the house is very short and by the end of our stay we could do it in our sleep! Just remember to stay on the left! -- The house was great for 2 couples! It was a big plus to have our own porch and control of the individual AC units in the rooms. Each room had an awesome in suite full bath with full privacy from the other rooms. They had a great closet with several shelves to put everything while we were there. There are full size washer and dryers that were great! The kitchen was highly utilized, as was the grill! The porch was a frequent spot for after happy hour snacks and dinner! We spent almost every afternoon/evening in the pool, which is shallow as you get it but gets deeper towards the opposite side (deep enough my 6’4 boyfriend could still be fully submerged). Having the chairs and coolers right at the house was very convenient!! Great for stopping at starfish market for “beverages” to take for a nice day at the beach. All of the beaches were a short drive from the house unless you venture over to Coral Bay, which took about 40 minutes but way worth it for some great snorkeling!!! The home was very secure with locks on all the sliding doors, shutters that locked from the inside and a large lock on the front door. There is a safe that was very easy to use in the house as well. Overall the house made for an impeccable stay and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the house!!!! It made my first and their returning trip to St. Johns a memorable visit!!!

A REMARCABLE home!!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four stayed at Perelandra from July 30th to August 7th. WE ALL LOVED IT!! The house is clean, bright, and comfortable. The view from the back deck was simply astonishing. The pool was a refreshing oasis in the Caribbean weather, which we north-easterners are not accustomed to. The service provided by Cimmaron (the property management company) was exceptional. Overall we had a spectacular vacation, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Perelandra.

Beautiful!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful villa, with views that don't disappoint. We went to St. John for our 20th wedding anniversary with our two kids, ages 10 and 12. I found the villa through this site, and when my husband saw it in person, he said, "This place is just perfect." It is very convenient to Cruz Bay, and has EVERYTHING you would need. There's a well-appointed kitchen, beach chairs and towels, an umbrella, etc. The owner and the rental agency could not have been more accommodating. Everything was clean and in working order. There is only AC in the bedrooms so the living area can get warm in the afternoons, but we were on the beach most of the time! The stairs that go down to the second bedroom are sort of narrow for mobility challenged folks...but overall and in every way, I definitely recommend this place! Can't wait to go back! It's a good home base for your trip to paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review and I would be thrilled if you returned for another milestone wedding anniversary!
Just as your husband said, when we first saw Perelandra we said, "This place is just perfect! ". And we continue to work to make it so.
The living room can sometimes be warm in the middle of summer but we close the outside doors in the morning before going out for the day and have found that keeps the room cooler when we return.
So glad you enjoyed our piece of paradise.

Wonderfully amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
This is my husband's and my 4th time to St. John and our friends' first time. Let me start w/the view! Not only do you get to watch the sunset setting behind St. Thomas across the way, you get to watch the boats coming in and out of Cruz Bay, making for wonderful pictures. The drive from Cruz Bay up Jacob's ladder is a short travel from the busy area of restaurants to your own peaceful stay. The home was perfect for 2 couples and the first villa for us to stay in any area of the Caribbean that allowed accessiblity to both bedrooms from inside. Each room was w/an en suite full bath and had full privacy (visual and audible) from the other rooms. The kitchen was fully supplied for those nights you want to cook and eat quietly on the deck. The grill was pretty new and well maintained.
A day on the beach was easy as beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler and towels were supplied. After happy hour at our favorite spots, it was always nice to come home to share the pool w/Iggy and his iguana family either on the pool deck or sunbathing in the trees w/in the well maintained landscaping.
The home was secured w/locked entrances, bracing for the sliding doors and a programmable safe.
Marilyn from Cimmaron, the management company, met us at the ferry dock, took us to our rental car and directed us to the villa, leaving only after a tour. She was nice enough to call on us twice to make sure we were enjoying our stay, answering any questions we had, etc. Linda, the owner even called to do the same. Unfortunately, we are early risers and were already on the beach when she called and left a message.
What a luxurious villa to stay in for a very affordable price compared to the other homes we searched. We will be back at our next visit of St John, our little paradise!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you found everything you wanted and needed at Perelandra. We try hard to think of everything a guest might need and want. Our management Cimmaron plays an important part in that as you can see from your interaction with Marilyn and we are very grateful to them.
We'll be doing even more to make Perelandra perfect in September. Come back and see!
Thank you for choosing Perelandra and we would welcome you back anytime.

Amazing...simply AMAZING!

  • 5 out of 5
I would have to say one of the best parts of our stay was the wonderful treatment we received from Linda the owner. She was so very nice and made our experience the best we have had using vrbo. The management company she uses in St John were also the best we have experienced. From stocking our refrigerator with items before our arrival to meeting us at the dock upon our arrival. They also helped with our luggage, took us to the jeep rental company, and took us to the home to show us around. They were just awesome. They also made it clear that if there was a problem, we could contact them 24/7. However, that was not at all necessary because the home was perfect, with everything we could possibly need. Perelandra is one of only a few homes that I would ever suggest someone stay in. The views are second to none and the interior is very well appointed. We felt at home the moment we walked in. Linda goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have everything they could want or need to make their stay amazing. From comfortable beds to fantastic bathrooms, to even small things such as nice beach chairs and towels. I am positive that we will stay here again in the future, but we love St John so much that my wife and I have decided to buy a home there to make St John our home in the near future. The home also has a fantastic patio as well as a screened in porch, both with beautiful views of the ocean and the sunset each evening. I would highly recommend staying in this lovely home.

Owner's Response: Perelandra is a very special place. The views and the location were the reasons we bought this villa. Then we went ahead and made the house as special as the views. We want our guests to have a wonderful experience on our beautiful island and come back to visit again.

Spectacular Villa with Great Views

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second trip to St John. If we were to return, we would certainly stay at Perelandra. Perelandra is a beautiful villa. The villa is very well maintained and it is very close to town. The view of St Thomas from the back porch area is equally beautiful in the morning as in the evening. The owner has given great thought to equipping the villa. The kitchen has a new stainless steel refrigerator and fully equipped kitchen. We cooked some meals in and always were able to find what we needed. The screened in porch is great for the evening when the bugs are out. The ceiling fan in it helps it stay comfortable. Whether you are planning to spend the day at the beach or a day at the pool you have what you need to enjoy the day. Beach supplies included several nice beach chairs, two sizes of coolers, umbrellas, and beach blanket and beach towels. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool area after a day at the beach. The pool area has two lounge chairs as well as a couple upright chairs and small tables around it. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and are air conditioned which was great given the heat in July. Our favorite beach was Maho so be sure to check it out. A little further to drive but good snorkeling and nice white beach. Our family would highly recommend this villa and booking directly with the owner.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Perelandra and are glad that you appreciate all the things we do to making our guests' stays comfortable. Everything is kept up to date and we are always doing something to make Perelandra better.
The screened porch and the screened window are important to me too. The bugs love me and the screened porch was one of our first improvements. We love having dinner out there.
You are welcome back anytime. Come back to see what we are going to be doing in September!

Car: necessary

Perelandra has the best location on the best island in the Caribbean.

St. John is unique among the Caribbean islands because it is the only one that is 2/3 National Park--providing you with rare access to pristine beaches and water for swimming & snorkeling as well as miles of nature trails to hike. After a days recreation, come home to relax at Perelandra.

Sitting on Perelandra's deck with an expansive view of the turquoise ocean and surrounding mountainous islands, surrounded with fragrant tropical flowers & chirping yellow sugarbirds, watch the brilliant sunsets as day turns into dusk, and then linger a bit longer & watch the twinkling lights of St. Thomas appear as the tree frogs begin your evening serenade.
