Why Deborah Visalli chose Cruz Bay

After traveling the world we settled on St. John because of its unsurpassed beauty. Villa Capiz took our breath away and it was love at first sight.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I desperately needed to get away and unplug. Villa Capiz has been the perfect oasis for us. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. It's simply awesome. Your attention to every little detail did not go unnoticed nor unappreciated-inside and out! This was our first trip to St. John and God-willing not our last! Thank you again for all the TLC you've put into your home. We'll be back! P.S. OMG What a view!

Having spent many months at a time at Villa Capiz while our children attended school on St. John in the winter, we added personal touches to the home not normally found in a rental property. Artwork, landscaping, and attention to detail make this villa welcoming. It is very private and yet is close to town and beaches. Also available are ipod docking stations.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Tranquil Vibes at this Tropical Zen Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The moment we entered the leafy tropical grounds of Villa Capiz, I knew we were in for a treat in paradise. Tucked into the lush landscaping were eastern style stone statues, welcoming us home and leading up and over a footbridge to the deck.

Morning yoga on the deck rewarded us with epic views of the teal ocean framed by palms and tropical vegetation sprouting everywhere. From above, we discovered iguanas basking lazily in the tops of trees, bright yellow bananaquits flitting about, red throated finches, and jewel toned hummingbirds flashing iridescence in the sunlight. It’s clear that the eco-conscious owners’ earth-friendly landscaping techniques have worked beautifully, just ask the birds!

Opening to the deck, gorgeous handmade wooden doors inlaid with soft pink capiz shells give Villa Capiz it’s name. The doors provide cool shade from the afternoon sun, or slide open to reveal an ocean view from the kitchen, where you stand preparing your next fruity beverage. The Capiz doors aren’t the only beautiful wood pieces here, you will find intricate wood carvings on many doors and furniture pieces throughout the home. There’s an artistic detail in every nook and cranny waiting to be discovered.

Lots of outdoor seating areas invite you to enjoy in the views, and we loved lounging by the pool, playing tunes on the outdoor speakers.

Each evening, we soaked in the hot tub and watched incredible island sunsets and moonrises— hands down THE BEST hot tub view I have ever enjoyed. The views were out of this world from our private perch on the hillside, overlooking the sparkling lights on St. Thomas in the distance, and the expansive Caribbean Sea dotted with tropical islands beyond.

Of course, St. John has some other pretty beautiful sights to see (world class white sand beaches, turquoise waters, rainbow tropical reef fish, sea turtles, coral reefs, palm trees blowing in the breeze)…all easily accessible from Villa Capiz. Tropical paradise? Absolutely!

Easy, breezy, beautiful Villa Capiz!

This is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay on St. John!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Capiz was everything we hoped it would be. The views are breathtaking from all over the house. The bedrooms were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the living area was very nice. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck and relaxing around the pool in the afternoon after swimming with the turtles at Maho Bay. The girls appreciated the wi-fi. We hope to return soon! Just remember...keep left😀

Paradise with a view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Capiz. We loved the layout of the home, the fabulous pool and hot tub, and the privacy offered by the tropical landscaping and driveway gate. The panoramic views of neighboring islands were spectacular so we spent hours on the porch and around the pool morning and night. Debbie was so helpful when I had questions before the trip and always responded to my emails quickly. Additionally, Peter and Gail were also helpful with pre-arrival information as well as welcoming us to St. John and making us feel at home at Villa Capiz. We will cherish the memories from our trip forever! I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a peaceful week in paradise with all of the amenities.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Capiz with my brother and his family. The house was amazing! The views, the pool, the outdoor space, the home itself - all perfect!! We cooked several nights and the kitchen was well equipped. There is a grill on the upper deck that we used for grilling. All the rooms were comfortable and welcoming. The view of Cruz Bay is magnificent - loved sitting on the deck. The view never got old. Sunsets were amazing! Thank you for having such an perfect home! Hope to be back!!!

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long stay at Villa Capiz with my fiance, sister and brother-in-law. We could not have asked for a better experience in St. John-the island is absolutely beautiful-the best snorkeling and hiking around! Villa Capiz exceeded all of our expectations, from the moment we were first messaging with the owners until arrival on the island everything was friendly, informative and a breeze. The on-island property managers were a great source of information and made themselves available for all questions or concerns during our stay! Not surprisingly, we had no concerns-the house is so comfortable, has incredible views and a well stocked kitchen. It also has coolers and beach chairs which were wonderful! Cannot thank you enough for a beautiful stay in St. John. We hope to be back again someday!

Paradise at Villa Capiz

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Villa Capiz could not have been better. The property is very clean and well maintained. The views at all times day or night are amazing. The owner and property manager were both very helpful. Any questions we had about planning our trip or activities we were interested in were always answered promptly. The guest book with beach descriptions was especially helpful. We took a picture of the descriptions so we could follow the directions to the best snorkel spots at the various beaches. Very accurate and helpful. We went to as many different beaches as we could during our stay. All the beaches are amazingly beautiful. Our favorite restraurant was Asolare. The best bartender and waitress we have ever had anywhere!! The food was delicious and the views were outstanding. Thank you Debbie for our awesome stay at Villa Capiz!!

Two thirds of St. John is National Park, and what a gem it is...and Villa Capiz is waiting to be your vacation spot to explore and experience this beautiful tropical paradise.

Other Activities: Spa, boating, shopping, kayaking, hiking, parasailing
