Why Mr and Mrs Ted Gelov chose
Like so many visitors to St. John, our family fell in love with this wonderful island because there’s just no other place quite as special and beautiful as St. John, especially for a Caribbean family vacation. We were looking for a comfortable home away from home where our children could walk to a beach and where they could safely walk around the local town to shop and explore. We also wanted a home that was both classic and beautiful on the outside, and modern and comfortable on the inside. When Casa Del Sol came on the market, we knew this was the perfect home for us. Because the villa is a member of the Klein Bay Association, we have access to the beach below the house, which provides enjoyable swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in calm, warm Caribbean waters (kayaks can be rented in Cruz Bay). We were also enthralled by this wonderful location, with lots of sun, marvelous views, and a tranquil and serene atmosphere. The oversized lot that surrounds Casa Del Sol also provides the peaceful privacy that we truly love. For our family, Casa Del Sol is a slice of heaven and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Del Sol was built in 1999 and was very well cared for and was not rented, so when we bought it 11 years later the house was in like new condition, and we intend to keep it that way. The home consists of a classic exterior design, with a thoroughly modern interior. For those who love to be outside, but not in the sun, Casa Del Sol’s multiple covered decks and balconies provide numerous places to relax and enjoy the lovely views. Because the decks were thoughtfully designed with a direct line of sight into the pool, adults can relax nearby in the shade while watching over any children in the pool. For families that love to vacation together, the four bedrooms provide excellent privacy with no common walls. Each bedroom has a covered balcony or deck, lovely views, custom granite and mahogany baths, and showers with a view The pool and the spacious sun deck are bathed in Caribbean sunshine from sunrise to late in the afternoon. The pool has stereo speakers at both ends, and a few steps away is a stone and granite wet bar and refrigerator, plus another set of speakers with speaker controls. At night, starlight and moonbeams shimmer on the sea before you. When you’re in the pool, you’re surrounded by music, soothed by the gentle trade winds and very relaxed.

Absolutely stunning villa
This house is incredible!! The views are amazing, great layout, and so peaceful and quiet. This house is everything it looks like in the pictures and MORE. We had 4 couples on this trip and everybody agreed this house exceeded all of our expectations. We did not have one issue. I would recommend this house to anyone looking in St. John.
Thank you so much for the rave review! We are thrilled the villa exceeded our expectations and certainly hope to see you again.
The perfect villa...
Casa del Sol is hard to describe in words. This property delivered beyond expectations and is truly the perfect vacation rental. The views are breath taking, the amenities are top-notch, the management company is very professional (my second experience with CVRM - both times a pain-free process) and we loved this house so much! A/C works great in the bedrooms and the breeze in the main house will keep you cool.
You cannot go wrong by staying at Casa del Sol.
Thank you for sharing your experience! Casa Del Sol is breathtaking and we are happy to see you enjoyed it as much as we do! We hope to see you again in the near future!
THE HOUSE AND THE STAFF AT CARIBBEAN VILLAS WAS AMAZING!
Our group of 4 (my wife and I, our college-age daughter and her friend) a great time! Casa Del Sol was amazing; from the moment we drove up to the house we could tell this place was perfect. As you can see in the pics, the house is made of stone inside and out and is obviously someone's personal vacation home and not just "a rental" the furnishings and decor are all high end from the decor to the antiques. All of the bedrooms and the main house have a terrace overlooking a breathtaking view of the pool and the ocean from high on the mountain! This house had everything we needed; from a well-appointed kitchen to a storage room with beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, etc. I own a beach home rental in North Carolina; so, I'm very particular about homes that I rent and this house did not disappoint. The main house is not air conditioned, but with the stone walls, open air design and constant breeze, it was never an issue. The bedrooms do have a/c but they were rarely used because of the breeze and the fact we were there in March. The only issue we had was with low water pressure in the bedroom, but after a call, someone was out within the hour to fix. I have stayed in rental homes all over the Caribbean but this house is the most amazing I have ever stayed at. But, what was more amazing was
the Caribbean Villas' staff. They were all awesome from the very start.
Our flight into St. Thomas was delayed by 4 hours putting us into St. John
about 9:30pm. I was in contact with Diane at Caribbean Villas (well after hours) up until I made contact with our Greeter, Kay, who also stayed late to meet us at the ferry dock and even coordinated with our
Jeep rental company to ensure we could get our car that night. Kudos to the
entire staff at Caribbean Villas. Thanks for an awesome experience! Just a side note about St. John: it is one of the cleanest and safest islands in the Caribbean. It's a small community and everyone knows everyone else and we never once felt unsafe anywhere we went. We will definitely be back as we will use St. John and, hopefully, Casa Del Sol as home base to explore more of the British Virgin Isles! Also, I was hesitant to rent the property because it only had two reviews on VRBO, but after some research, I found that this house advertises on several different site with all great reviews, so don't let that sway you from renting this truly awesome property!
What's not to love?
Our group of 4 couples found Casa del Sol the perfect mix of togetherness and privacy. So many outdoor living spaces--both sunny and shaded--to gather and enjoy the views and one another. Indoor great room/kitchen wonderful for nightly feasts. 4 separate pods/bedrooms for each couple to have some privacy. The home is nicely stocked with all you need for cooking and dining. Beach equipment in good shape and in ample supply. Screens to keep the mosquitoes out. Only criticism would be the lighting in the kitchen is lacking for evening meal prep, but if that is all you can complain about in paradise, I think it's a pretty good day!
Casa del Sol!!!
This house is amazing! The 8 in our party enjoyed a wonderful week! Days at the pool or beach - very enjoyable. Dancing on the pool deck at night under the stars - awesome! Hope to be back again next year. Same time, same place, same friends!
I skipped school for the opportunity to stay at Casa del Sol and it was one of the better school skipping decisions I've made! Casa del Sol, or Heaven, as I call it is beyond paradise. There are few words to describe it that do it justice. I had a fantastic time with my family and given the chance would skip school again for it! Even my teachers understood when I emailed them a picture haha. Pictures can't capture the beauty of this place any better than words can describe it. i leave with a very heavy heart but cherish the time I was allowed to spend here. I thank everyone responsible for me being allowed to spend a couple days in heaven. I highly recommend star gazing. Few places anymore have a night time view like there is here! Back to oh so cold Michigan! :(
Casa Del Sol is located on the top row of villas in the exclusive neighborhood of Klein Bay. There are about fifteen upscale villas in Klein Bay, which is a snug cove that is part of Rendezvous Bay, a larger bay on St. John's Caribbean coast. Limited development of this area insures its unique beauty, privacy and peacefulness. Ditliff Point is the peninsula that curves south into the Caribbean and protects two beaches in Klein Bay that provide swimming and snorkeling close to home, with turquoise waters, brightly colored fish, sea fans and other sea life. A 5-15 minute swim or snorkel takes you to the little used white sand beach on Ditliff Point, or you can swim and snorkel at the tranquil pebble beach directly below you in Klein Bay. The restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay are a 10 minute drive on paved roads.
