We stayed in the Coral Unit for our 'weddingmoon' on February 13-20. Everything was clean and comfortable. The view is gorgeous from the veranda! It was nice to have a kitchen to make dinners because eating on the island can get very expensive. Ashley was very helpful when we had any questions about getting around the island. Location is pretty... More

My husband and I went to St. John March 4 - 11, 2013. We researched a number of places to stay, and decided to go to Serendip. We are so glad we did! It was the perfect place for us, and truly was a beautiful place to be. It was close enough to town, yet far enough to be peaceful.... More

Stayed in the Delta unit again, and everything was great. Love the location of Serendip, the beautiful views, the comfortable units. The manager Ashley does a terrific job and made us feel very welcome. I used the pool this visit, which was a nice late afternoon treat. Will definitely stay at Serendip on my next trip back to St. John.

Forth time visitor to the USVI, but first time to Serendip. It won't be the last. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Charlotte Amalie and to the peace and quiet of a tropical paradise then Serendip is your answer. It's NOT on the beach or down in town...that's the point. It's up in... More

This was my second year in a row staying at Serendip, and once again I had an amazing time. I stayed for two weeks this year in a studio apartment and it was perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled within a lush, tropical setting on two acres with ocean views to Cruz Bay, our one-bedroom and studio condos at Serendip Vacation Condos are being continually upgraded inside and out. We are an intimate complex of only 10 units in a quiet residential area of St. John. Each of the 8 one-bedroom and 2 studio condos have a fully-equipped kitchen, AC, cable, and large covered veranda with ocean views. The studio units have an maximum occupancy of 2 guests. Our one-bedroom units have a maximum occupancy of 4 guests, with NO additional 'per person' fees! The guest laundry facilities are a great added value for small families or the budget friendly traveler, and we also have beach towels, beach chairs & even a cooler for your memorable days on our beautiful USVI National Park beaches. One of our favorite features is the large covered veranda that extends the length of the entire condo and is a wonderful place for dining, reading a book or watching the sunset. The condo complex also has a lovely pool with a seating area, chaise lounges, and BBQ grill. Review our photos and let us know which unit you are interested in reserving when you submit an inquiry. This will allow us to provide an accurate rate and more details about the specific unit. Serendip is one of the best St John vacation values on the island. We look forward to having you as our guest. ... more   less
