“A beautiful, comfortable place - friendly and informative host.”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I recently celebrated my birthday with friends at the Beach Villa. It's a great place, open and airy, right on the water, wonderful landscaping, nice artistic touches. Located on Great Cruz Bay (not Cruz Bay), near (but not adjacent to) the Westin. I was totally happy with every aspect of the rental. Donald Schnell was a friendly and helpful host, who also rented us a virtually brand new Jeep, which made getting the island a breeze.

Wonderful 5 bedroom all with thier own bath and all large rooms.Pool has an island with palm in the middle, hot tub overlooking Great Cruz bay.Kitchen was adequate but needs some updating ( two refrigerators but both had hard time keeping things much below 65 or so) we had 8 of us and ate dinners in all but once,so we went to the Starfish market for out supllies.Out door grill was nice to have as well it also needed a new burner.
Plenty of room to gather with the nice interior living room and adjoining out door covered deck area with many nice plantings around home.Hammocks under the shade trees were enjoyed by all as well as the "beach area" overlooking the bay.

“Family house for wedding week at Beach Villa”
Reviewed 9 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

person found this review helpful

We needed to accommodate two families for our wedding this August in St. John. We rented both the Beach Villa and the Beach Estate and were really happy with our decision!

Overall the Beach Villa was a wonderful choice for our family. There bedrooms were really big with their own bathrooms and working air conditioning. They were really beautiful rooms! The kitchen itself could use some updates for entertaining, but overall we were happy with what it provided. Plenty of space in the rooms, not enough space for lounging around as a group indoors.

The pool was smaller than I imagined but truly stunning with the palm tree island in the middle. There were plenty of pool toys for the kids in our group. The bay was easy enough to access (yes, there are rocks -- so be prepared for a tough entrance). Plenty of space to lounge and relax outside.

My 95 year old grandmother was in our group and got around the property just fine. There was one bedroom that was ground floor which made it easy for her.

The location is truly ideal. Since we had a large group in town for the wedding it helped to be so central to grocery stores, downtown, and the Westin. You can actually see the Westin from the villa.

There were many creatures running around outside -- lizards, iguanas, etc. The house itself was very clean and we hardly ran into any issues with bugs.

One downfall was the hot-tub. It never heated up and despite repeated calls to Donald it wasn't fixed.

Donald is really a great person to rent from. He can even set you up with rental cars that he delivers to the villas. He made everything so easy - -we were picked up at the ferry dock, taken to his office to sign paperwork and pick up our rental cars for the week, and off we went! Donald also went the extra mile when learning about a baby in our group who was getting attacked by mosquitos at night -- he brought over a mosquito net without us even asking and she was never bit again!

Glad to come across your review again & happy to see everyone enjoyed themselves! The hot tub has a couple of switches and we think there was some missed communications where not everyone knew how to operate it with the heat on (sometimes happens with larger groups that don't all arrive at once). We've simplified it and hope we've find a balance between ease of use & not having it run unnecessarily since they draw a huge amount of electricity and ours is the most expensive in the nation per khw.
