She loves the beaches, the mountains and the year round summer on St. John and is proud of the consistent high level of quality and services her VIVA team provides our island visitors every day.
This was our second stay at Windchime with my family. Overall, the villa provides a very private location, all the comforts of home and central access to the main routes to Cruz Bay, Coral Bay and the Beaches. The villa is on top of Gifft Hill which provides stunning views of the Carribean Sea and Chocolate Hole, the high elevation provides for cooling trade winds all day long.
Windchime is located a short driving distance to the Virgin Islands National Park beaches and hiking trails. Duty free shopping and a wide array of dining options are just minutes away by Jeep rides. A typical day on St. John can be as relaxing as hanging at one of our world-famous beaches, taking a guided hike, or exploring the hiking trails on your own. There are plenty of full and half day sail and power boat charters, tours to the nearby British Virgin Islands, and fishing charters, as well as plenty of other ways to spend your vacation.
