About this villa

The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers are always amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.


Villa Sunset Cruz is located in the exclusive gated community of Virgin Grand Estates, an upscale neighborhood on St. John's spectacular Southwest Shore. Sunset Cruz sits at an elevation of about 700 feet above sea level with breathtaking panoramic views of Great Cruz Bay, the Caribbean Sea, St. Thomas and smaller Caribbean islands off in the distance. Villa Sunset Cruz is the only home on its drive so you will enjoy privacy and seclusion here. The west facing views offer spectacular sunsets year round.



Every level of Villa Sunset Cruz offers opportunities for outdoor living. This 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, 3 level Villa has everything that you will need for a perfect Caribbean get away. Villa Sunset Cruz features each bedroom as a Master Suite with traditional outdoor St John garden showers. Each Master Suite has a king bed, TV, A/C, water view and private bath. All bedrooms have access to outdoor balconies with private sitting areas overlooking Great Cruz Bay and breathtaking sunsets.



One flight of stairs up from the driveway is a large pool deck with a family style saltwater pool with lounge chairs for sunbathing, a poolside bar including an ice maker, refrigerator, Margaritaville blender and a propane grill. Adjacent to the pool is a half bath and outdoor shower perfect for rinsing off after a day at the beach or pool.



On the second level, there is a large air conditioned great room with vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and an adjacent half bath. The great room opens onto a spacious deck and is the perfect place to gather and entertain. The chef’s kitchen comes equipped with everything you will need to cook all your meals in style with new stainless steel appliances, natural stone countertops, custom cabinetry and countertop bar with barstool seating. This level has an indoor dining area with seating for 6. This level also has a spectacular west facing outdoor balcony spanning the entire length of the house. The balcony is directly accessible from the two second floor bedrooms and the great room and is equipped with a dining table for family meals and loveseats for morning coffee. There is also an outdoor patio adjacent to the kitchen with a second grill and private seating for reading and relaxing in the shade. The laundry room is also found on this level.

The private third floor bedroom includes its own balcony with seating and views over Great Cruz Bay. This room offers a private retreat and is the highest point in the house for the perfect sunset view.



You decide which level offers the best sunbathing and optimal viewing of the brilliant turquoise waters of the Caribbean by day, and fiery sunsets by evening.



The villa offers green power with over 50 solar panels and three Tesla Powerwalls for battery backup.



From the villa you can take a 5 minute stroll down to the Westin, a 5-10 minute drive to Cruz Bay for shopping and dinner or grill out and relax on the patio.

    Great stay!

    This home is awesome! It is well taken care of and had everything we needed! The property manager was AWESOME and even brought us flippers to use because there weren't enough on the property for all of us. They even showed up with 2 new lounge chairs while we were staying there. The A/C on the property got very cold when we needed it! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking or preparing meals! My FAVORITE part was the outdoor shower where I had a hermit crab who joined me for my shower on several days. With that being said, we had a couple very minor issues. I will say that we didn't think the reviews about the beach being a 5 min walk away were accurate. The roads up to the house were very windy and steep and we are fairly young and athletic and still wouldn't have attempted to walk to the bottom. You for sure will be driving down to the bottom. Also, the wifi didn't work well for us at all even though the manager came to reset the router for us. Really wasn't much of an issue because we had good service at the house without needing the wifi much. Highly recommend this home!!

    A slice of heaven!

    There is not one thing that this property did not have. The owners have literally thought of every thing you might possibly need. The house was so clean and beautiful. We cooked in every night to enjoy the sunset because it was just breathtaking going over the hill! The owners were quick to respond if I did have a question, and so kind and helpful. I highly recommend this place if you’re coming to St. John!

    Relief

    Wonderful property with beautiful views. The first drive up was a little exciting, but we quickly became accustomed to it. The villa was as advertised, well equipped with everything needed for a great stay. Would highly recommend to anyone from families to groups of friends.

    Excellent

    Property was perfect for our family for an extended stay. Plenty of room for privacy, particularly with the independent bedroom suites, and the spacious and open living room/kitchen. The outdoor spaces are huge and numerous, and the pool was everything we could have hoped for. Property management was great - very quick with responses and always gave us a heads-up on services as needed. JP was excellent - familiarized us with the house, gave lots of recommendations, always available by text or phone call if needed. Location is ideal - private and secure, yet close to everything - North Shore beaches are close, 15 minutes to Coral Bay, less than 10 minutes to Cruz Bay. And so close to Shambles and Windmill Bar... our two favorites! Couldn't have asked for a better property for a family vacation.

    Great house, perfect for 3 couples.

    Great kitchen, perfect for cooking in. Nice views of Great Cruz Bay (Westin), though the high up location means a long(ish), adventurous drive. Maybe 15 minutes from town, 20-25 from the beaches. The pool deck and bar are great for villa days. Best feature is the bedrooms are all separate from the common area, so there's plenty of privacy. You won't see/hear other folks in your group unless and until you want to. We'd happily stay again.

    Sunset View and Amenities Made it Hard to Leave

    The property was well-equipped and amenities, especially little extra items such as coffee, beach chairs and towels, pool-side wet bar, made it difficult to leave. We spent a lot more time on the deck and pool areas then expected. The three room set-up was great for my family with older children and would be wonderful for three couples. Plenty of common areas and privacy. We will go back!

    One of My Favorite Villa in St John Hands Down!

    I have been visiting St John for 18 years with my husband and we have stayed in MANY villas, and this one was hands down the best. It was beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, and we felt like we could feel the vibe that the house was loved. It was perfectly equiped, but really more than that every need seemed to be anticipated. The owners left us drinks and goodies when we arrived that were delicious and so appreciated after the long trip! The view was unparalelled and the photos do not even do it justice. I do not have anything bad to say about the property and would DEFINITLEY stay here again. My only complaint had nothing to do with the home, but with the property management company. We were set to leave during tropical storm Grace, our flight was cancelled, and the ferries were stopped. We contacted the property manager to help us navigate where to stay that evening (our flight was not resceduled until the next day). The property management company, who did not call us at all, but only responded to texts just basically said check the hotels and that we needed to be out by 10am (house cleaners even came early at 8:30am). So there we were, all of the hotels/villas on the island were booked, we were given no time to figure out where to go, and were just quite literally kicked out on the streets. They did not lift a finger to help us out. We sincerely thought we would be sleeping on the benches at the ferry dock or in a rental car that night with our two children in a tropical storm. Thankfully after a ton of hustling around town and chatting with everyone we saw and the kindness of multiple strangers, we found a hotel that agreed to stay open despite their intension to close for the season that night (Thank you SO much to Cruz Bay Boutique Motel for your kindness and willingness to help those of us who were stranded). I am in the real estate industry myself and would have expected the property management company to at least try to help us find a place to lay our head. I want the homeowners know, as I heard stories of other property management companies pulling out the stops to assist their clients that were stranded that evening. Otherwise the home is absolute perfection! If you stay here just make sure to leave the island ahead of a storm or you may be up the creek with no paddle!

    Great Views, comfortable stay!

    We enjoyed our time at Sunset Cruz. The pool was perfect for our two kids. They spent hours each day in it! The house is set up in the "pod" style that many homes on the island are. All rooms are accessibly from the large covered veranda on the 2nd/main level. There is a great room with the kitchen, living room, dining room and half bath. Each bedroom has its own entry, a king bed and its own bathroom. Overall, the rooms are fairly equal and this would work well for several couples traveling together. There are two that could probably be considered an owner's suite. My kids are 9 and 12, and we were comfortable not having the rooms accessible by an interior staircase. The house was comfortable and had everything that we needed, including beach chairs, beach towels, lots of bath towels, a properly stocked kitchen, plenty of dishwasher and laundry detergent. There is an ice machine in the pool bar, which is awesome to have. They had several coolers we could chose from to take to the beach, some pool toys, etc. We used LandLubbers, on suggestion of management, to pre-stock the kitchen before arrival and they were amazing. Management was great. We had an issue with the Wifi upon checking in, but they quickly sent someone out to help. Good communication and quick to assist. They also had a little basket of amazing food from North Shore Deli in the fridge when we got there - we loved it all. Thanks! One note: We were told to drink bottled water, and not the tap water, so make sure to order some jugs of water (or pick them up) before stopping at the home.
