We actually built Bombalassy at it's location on St. John because is the most beautiful property to be able to enjoy the peaceful intimacy of the Great Cruz Bay harbor and a perfect vantage point to the many highlights St. John has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Curtis & Myrtle,

What a wonderful time we had here in St. John. This is our 3rd visit and each time we have stayed in your beautiful villas. Everything was just as we remembered from our last trip here. Thanks for providing the perfect setting for the perfect islands.

Perfect Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Bombalassy was absolutely perfect for our stay in St. John. My husband and I stayed in the Villa along with the parents. It is a perfect location. A close car/taxi ride to downtown and to the beaches. The views were beautiful. Curtis and Myrtle were extremely accommodating, including stocking the house with some essentials before our visit. Myrtle was there to great us getting off the ferry. They always answered the phone when we called and helped us with any questions we had. The pool was a perfect temperature. The villa itself was very comfortable for 4 adults. The beach chairs, towels and cooler were great additional touches that we used throughout our trip. All appliances, pots, pans, hair dryers, coffee pot, washer/dryer, etc. worked great. We would definitely come back.

luxury in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bombalassy is a true gem. The villa itself was well appointed and the furnishings were extremely comfortable. The view from the villa was spectacular. Curtis and Myrtle were extremely accommodating. I rented a crib and car seat for my two year old. When we arrived, the crib was set up in the bedroom and the car seat installed in our jeep. We couldn't have asked for a better home or hosts. Looking forward to a return trip next year!

Bombalassy was a perfect retreat for our stay on the beautiful island of St. John. The house was lovely and provided everything one would need in a home and on a vacation: comfortable, spotless and private, beautiful views, awesome outdoor showers, a cooling dip pool and soothing ocean breezes! The location of the house is just a short drive away to restaurants, groceries and shopping. We rented our car through Curtis which was hassle free. The island has so many beautiful beaches and fun restaurants we highly recommend a rental car for exploring! Curtis and Myrtle are the perfect managers and will help you in anyway possible. It was hard to leave this awesome vacation home and island. Thank you again Curtis and Myrtle for making this vacation home and St John experience delightful.

We will be back!

The Bombalassy

  • 5 of 5

The Bombalassy is a fantastic property. It is clean with up-to-date styling of flooring, counters, etc. It has a spectacular view of the bay with all of the sailboats. We loved to hang out on the private patio whether it was in the morning for coffee or evening drinks. The Landlord was also outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the day-long boat trip to BVI aboard his personal boat. I cannot think of one thing that could have been better. When we return to St. John, we will absolutely book this property again.

Beautiful Bombalassy

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to do something special in celebration of our twin sons' 21st birthday and our 25th wedding anniversary and found it on the charming island of St. John in Bombalassy, named for a local sea shell. It is an architectural wonder carved into the mountainside overlooking Great Cruz Bay. It is built out of local stone with dozens of perfectly intact conch shells embedded into the walls adding to the color and charm of the place. The amenities are all first rate. Curtis and Myrtle did it right...no shortcuts. We especially appreciated the quasi-outdoor showers which allow you to appreciate the spectacular view of the bay while enjoying your shower. Don't be intimidated by the steep driveway. Just make sure you have good brakes on your rental. There's also quite a few steep steps to get to Bombalassy...after you park your car. As long as you don't have any significant knee problems you should be fine. Myrtle could not have been nicer. What a delightful woman and she couldn't have been more accommodating and responsive. She met us at the ferry and took us to our temporary Caribbean home. She explained everything about the house and made us feel welcome. If we needed anything she responded immediately. Our favorite beach was Hawksnest Beach (get there before 9:30A) and we discovered the best pizza on the planet at Ristorante Da Livio in Cruz bay. One's bucket list can't be complete without one trip to the Soggy Dollar in the British Virgin Islands. Curtis initially responded to my emails and texts before the trip, but after we arrived on the island I never heard from him again despite sending him several emails and texts. We were hoping he'd at least stop by the house, but he never did. I even mentioned this to Myrtle at the end of our stay...still no response. Not a huge deal but this was the only perplexing and disappointing aspect of the trip and would have made it 5 stars had he been more responsive. We look forward to returning to beautiful Bombalassy in the future, the jewel of St. John.
