About Scott

We are both self-employed and live in freezing Minnesota and love to head to St. John to enjoy the warmth of the Caribbean weather. We love to travel, have been to Mexico many times, Hawaii, and Amsterdam, but fell in love with St. John.

Scott purchased this villa in 2011

Why Scott chose Cruz Bay

We have been coming to the USVI and BVI (sailing) for many years and found St. John to be our favorite caribbean island. We took our time searching for the right property and had to seize the opportunity to purchase Heavenly Villas. Now we are 'living the dream'... well, sometimes, when we get to stay at Heavenly Villas!

What makes this villa unique

Heavenly Villas is located above Cruz Bay with western views that provide some awesome sunsets. We are always striving to add those special touches to Heavenly Villas and hope you will enjoy it there as much as we do. St. John is a wonderful island and a great place to visit. You can have a relaxing, romantic vacation, or bring your family and enjoy all the great hiking trails, beaches, snorkeling, and much more. We know there are many options when choosing a villa on St. John and hope you choose Heavenly Villas. We have put a lot of thought into the details and hope our guests have a great, 'don't worry, be happy' vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott,



We just left your villa today and we had a wonderful time.



The view from the terrace is really great! Each morning and each evening it was a pleasure to watch sunrise and sunset.



Thanks again for this wonderful week in St. John.

On the Coast of Somewhere Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Heavenly Villas was the perfect place for our family. We were greeted promptly at the ferry dock by Rachelle and she took us to get our rental car and escorted us to the villa. I would recommend 4x4 car as the last hill to the house is quite steep. Our jeep handled it with ease! This was our 5th time in St. John but 1st time at Heavenly Villa. We loved the short drive to Cruz Bay. The view from Heavenly is priceless both in the morning with a cup of coffee and evening with a cocktail from the tiki bar. The villa was spotless upon arrival and well maintained with fresh propane. It was nice that beach chairs and coolers were available for us to use as well. We "do our own ting" in the islands since we have been so many times. Favorite beaches are Maho and Francis Bay. Paddle boarded with sea turtles and sting rays at both. Unique beach is Salt Pond and Drunk Bay and we always enjoy an afternoon there. We got groceries at St. Johns Market and Pine Peace and cooked many dinners at the villa on the grill. Our favorite bar was Beach Bar and Barefoot Cowboys. Rented Kayak and paddle boards at Cinnamon Bay and took them to Maho. I would recommend taking the ferry to Jost VanDyke for the day and enjoying the sights at Soggy Dollar. There are excursions that eventually end up there but since we have done those we now just go to Soggy and spend the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Heavenly Villas and highly recommend this villa. Until our next visit we will listen to our Kenny Chesney CD and think of being "On the Coast of Somewhere Beautiful! "

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Heavenly villa definitely lives up to its' name! Truly spectacular views and perfect for watching sunsets on the wraparound deck! Exceptionally private and serene making for a relaxing getaway. Incredibly convenient to Cruz Bay and everything it has to offer including shops, restaurants, and all types of excursions/activities! We're down in St. John a couple times a year and few accommodations compare to Heavenly Villa! We'd recommend it to anyone and would most definitely stay here again!

Beautiful stay in beautiful St John

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfortable and spacious; the views are truly AMAZING. I've visited St John two times before and the view from the house gave me a whole new perspective on the island. One of the days it was so clear we could see St. Croix.

What you should know about the house: Bed is comfortable, furnishings including kitchen gear are a little dated/worn, full size washer/dryer (awesome), a stereo system with speakers throughout the house (cool) and wraparound porch with BBQ, lounge chairs and hammock are the best for relaxing or entertaining guests (we did both). We walked to the rental about half our stay (VERY steep and a pretty taxing climb - I don't recommend it unless you really want a challenge), and the rest of the time rented a Jeep through L&L.

Best day trip was to Coral Bay! But then again, there are no bad beaches to be found, each is beautiful in its own way. We especially liked Maho for snorkeling because of the variety (turtles/rays in the middle of the grassy area, and beautiful, colorful fish on the rocky shore side.) If you want to be pampered, spend an afternoon at Caneel Bay, it's a very family friendly bay for swimming, with sea turtles, afterwards have drinks, lunch or dinner beachside - the only beach in St. John with a swimmable beachside restaurant.

Owner's Response: Hello thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed Heavenly Villas. I am not sure what you are referring to about the kitchen gear? We have a brand new fridge, dishwasher, toaster, coffee pot, pots and pans, dishes, etc. The microwave was only one year old. I know you had the problem with the power surge which fried the cord on the microwave. We apologize for that, but power surges are common on the island. We always recommend that you use a vehicle when staying at your villa. Despite being very close to town the last few blocks are very steep and are a great workout, if that is what you are looking for on your vacation. If you prefer a more relaxing vacation you will want a vehicle. It is also nice to have the vehicle to get to the North Shore where the best beaches in the world reside. It is the elevation, however, that provides Heavenly Villas THE BEST VIEW ON THE ISLAND.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Heavenly Villa was perfect for us and our week on St. John. The villa was well stocked and clean. And the villa is incredibly convenient to Cruz Bay, and has beautiful views. Up on the hill, the mornings were peaceful and the sunsets were amazing. Scott, the owner, was super responsive, accommodating and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

Beautiful villa with the best views!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a 2 weeks stay at Heavenly Villas and the entire experience was top notch. After booking, the owner and management company were very gracious and communicated with me in a timely manner. The information provided for prior to arrival was comprehensive and very helpful. The villa was very clean, well appointed and is in a great location and close to Cruz Bay and food shops. We enjoyed sunset every day as we relaxed on the veranda. You really can't beat the view form this villa! We enjoyed our stay and were able to really explore St. John. After the trip, the owner called me to check in and make sure we enjoyed our stay and to see if there were any recommendations for what they could do better. The owner is great to work with and really cares about making your stay the best experience possible. I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends and family!

Heavenly Villas is located just 3 minutes from downtown and the ferry dock. It is in the Bethany area, perched above town allowing for unsurpassed, 180 degree ocean views and breathtaking sunsets. It is only 1/2 mile from Great Cruz Bay and just a 5 minute drive to the best beaches in the world on the north shore. The close proximity to town, coupled with the elevation and incredible views makes Heavenly Villas a must see.
