Description of the Cruz Bay vacation villa rental
The views, privacy, comfort, and romantic ambiance of this intimate, elegant villa will delight you. Clinging to the hillside above Cruz Bay, Perelandra's breathtaking views sweep from the deserted cays nestled in the Windward Passage to the sailboats skimming through Pillsbury Sound to the spectacular sunsets resting upon St. Thomas. Later in the evening, St. Thomas' twinkling lights provide a romantic backdrop to your evening.

The villa's perfect location offers proximity to town -- with its ferries, restaurants, and shops -- and to the world-famous National Park beaches of the North Shore while also providing complete privacy among lush landscaping.

Perelandra offers two luxuriously appointed bedrooms -- each with its own air-conditioning, and two large bathrooms -- each with a large walk-in shower. There is a queen sized sofa bed in the living rom. This meticulously-crafted home includes cove molding, mood lighting, Saltilo tiles, exotic woods, and ceiling fans throughout

Glass tiles set in the vaulted ceilings bathe the living areas in light. Bedroom and great room doors open out onto two levels of wrap-around decks and verandas which, in turn, lead to the beautiful, refreshing swimming pool -- perfectly sized to be large enough to cool off and exercise in (10 x 18) but small enough to warm up quickly in the sun. While the pool area provides beautiful views of the ocean and St. Thomas, others can not view you as it is surrounded by garden walls and verdant foliage and flowers.

Perelandra is very-well provisioned. Its kitchen provides everything you'll need to fix snacks for the beach, to make your own Caribbean drinks to sip poolside or while watching the sunset, or to prepare that romantic dinner for just the two of you. Special kitchen features include a large side-by-side refrigerator with ice-maker, range with built-in griddle, chef-quality pots and pans, and designer dinnerware.

Additional amenities also include a new washer and dryer, 2 tv's, many games, CDs, DVDs, videos, phones upstairs and down with answering machine, beach chairs and towels, picnic coolers, beach bags. See the extensive list below of all additional amenities provided for your comfort and convenience. All items are top quality.

Perelandra is perfect for a romantic interlude for the two of you, for two couples vacationing together (bedrooms are equally desirable), or for a family with children.

Saw this villa--Perelandra--on Vacation Rentals by Owner which we've used several times before with very happy results. Our first time to St. John but we'd heard good things about it and it seemed like our kind of place--WARM in the winter, in fact warm enough to be able to swim & snorkle comfortably in the ocean; full of nature (2/3 of the island is National Park), and a great islandy place to relax, renew, and reconnect with each other. It was ALL of that and more. And Perelandra definitely added, in fact was an integral part, of the whole experience. The house is VERY clean, VERY private, and has the most spectacular views we have had ANYWHERE (and we've been fortunate enough to have gone to many places in this world). The pool area is, as advertised, clothing-optional private. Beautiful plants/trees in the garden--makes you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle when you look out certain windows, but of course the 'main event' view is that incredible ocean dotted with all the beautiful cays and islands. Sunsets were amazing. Spent a LOT of time sitting outside on the deck--enjoying the view, the little yellow bananaquits & beautifully-colored humingbirds, and the iguanas lazing in the trees with our morning coffee. Enjoying the sailboats skimming over the ocean surface with our afternoon aperitif, or enjoying the sunsets, purple twilight, and then shimmering lights coming on in St. Thomas, as evening faded into night while we ate our dinner out on the deck (or even danced to the great music collection). We LOVED it at Perelandra and certainly hope to return soon.

Very nice home with great views

Perlandra is a very nice property with great views of Cruise Bay and St Thomas. Having air conditioning in the 2 bedrooms was great for a July vacation. Appliances in great shape and very new. The deck, pool and screened in porch are very nice. We grilled out a few times and had very nice dinners on the deck watching the sunset.

Perfect. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Perelandra was just want we wanted - very private, with a pool, and an awesome view of Cruz Bay. There are 2 bedrooms, but we only used the upstairs one one. (The downstairs one was almost identical, with its own full bathroom.) The bed was comfy and both bedrooms have an A/C unit which kept it plenty cold. The only reason I didn't choose "Excellent" for "Sleep Quality" was because the bugs and birds at night are very loud. :) You could see that as charming or annoying - but it's just part of the island experience! The location of the villa is perfect - far enough away from the main road to be quiet and private, up on the hillside with a GREAT view, and still within a 5 minute drive of main Cruz Bay, and within 15 minute drive of the north shore beaches. We loved the full kitchen and BBQ grill - we ate most of our meals right in the villa. Perelandra also has satellite TV, wireless internet access, plenty of island guidebooks to help you out, and all the beach items you'll need - chairs, towels, coolers, umbrella, etc. The property owners were fantastic to work with - very responsive and knowledgable, and even called us while we were there to make sure things were going well. And the local property management company (Cimmaron St. John) took excellent care of us - met us at the ferry, showed us to the car rental agency, pointed out all the major things we'd need (grocery story, market, etc), and responded to all our questions and needs throughout our stay.

Gorgeous!

We spent a fabulous week at Perelandra! We went to a tn of beaches all over the island and then would head back to the house to watch the sunset, have another swim and cocktails! Everything was neat, clean and a real home away from home. We can't wait to go back! Movie night at Planche del Mar on Saturdays is a must! And a trip to Coral Bay and smoothies are fantastic too. We loved every part of our trip!

"We are so glad you had a wonderful time! You'll have to come back because we are about to embark on a wonderful renovation. We are replacing the wood decks with cut coral, adding a screen porch to part of the upper deck, getting all new outdoor furniture, adding a tropical outdoor shower to the pool area, getting all new appliances and upgrading the kitchen and bathroom cabinets! However nothing could ever replace our views and sunsets. Perelandra will continue to be the perfect place to relax and have fun."

Breathtaking view, totally relaxing, very comfortable.

Our stay at Perelandra was superb, starting with Emily (from the property mgmt. firm) greeting us at the ferry dock upon our arrival. She drove us to the car rental agency and then led us up to our villa, where she spent a good 45 minutes showing us the ins and outs of Perelandra. A bonus for us was a welcome package, which included a bottle of Cruzan rum, cheese & crackers and a few other goodies. Our six-day stay at the villa just what my wife and I needed after finishing a hectic tax season. The amenities of the villa were more than adequate. We used the outdoor grill several times and the clean refreshing pool daily. Other than backing out the steep driveway, the location of Perelandra is very convenient to downtown and just minutes away from great snorkeling spots. The best part of our stay at the villa was sitting out on the back deck early in the morning sipping a hot cup of coffee, listening to the birds singing and watching the boats come & go in Cruz Bay. The evening hours were special also, as the crescent moon shone over the water and many stars and planets could be viewed from the house. For us, the vacation at Perelandra met and in many ways exceeded our expectations.

"We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. You will be happy to know that our latest upgrade to Perelandra was to enlarge the driveway to make it easier to enter and exit. As well, we repainted the lower bedroom, replaced all interior doors and put up a beautiful new pergola to give some shade to the upper deck. Adding new landscaping makes Perelandra even more private."

I love Perelandra!

Our trip to Perelandra couldn't have been any more wonderful. The weather was perfect and the house was ideal. It was amazing to spend the day at the beach, take a dip in the pool and then relax with a drink watching the sunset over the Cruz bay with views of St Thomas. Perelandra is in the perfect for visiting beaches and spending time in town. I hope to make it back soon for more fun!

Stunning Villa with a View!

Left on May 1, 2012 for a stay in Apr 2012
My husband and I stayed at Perelandra mid-April and it was stunning! The villa was charming with beautiful decor and a warm vibe. The updated kitchen and bathrooms were wonderful with every appliance and cookware you might need for a gourmet dinner or relaxing barbecue. We ate every meal on the large terrace while enjoying the view of Cruz Bay or watching the sunset. The upstairs bedroom was airy and light-filled - some nights we left all the windows open because there was a nice breeze and when it got hotter we turned on the a/c which hardly muttered a sound! The pool was great to take a morning or afternoon dip in to cool off and simply take in the view. What is great about Perelandra is that it's so close to everything - 2 minutes by car to a few grocery stores, less than 5 minutes to all the restaurants in Cruz Bay, 10-15 minutes to beautiful beaches - yet the property was nice and secluded. We're excited to go back!

We are extremely "picky" travelers and have high expectations. I am happy to tell you that Perelandra exceeded our expectations as did St. John. The location of the home is perfect. The views from the deck are outstanding and having a kitchen, laundry and pool were bonuses. Renting a vehicle with 4 wheel drive is essential, but the roads are in perfect condition and it was fun driving the hills and switch-backs. Cimmeron gave us exceptional service as well and we would recommend them. Actually I have already recommended both Cimmeron and Perelandra to individuals I know that travel. We visited every beach and enjoyed the variety. Trunk Bay has the best sand and the underwater trail which I found to be OK. Waterlemon Cay had the best snorkeling, but there is alot of hiking and swimming involved to get there. We loved the fact that all the beaches were in coves and we snorkled in all of them. We saw rays, turtles, a Lemon shark, an eel, lots of fish (the typical ones you see in the Carribbean), and Coral. It was not the very best snorkeling we have every had, but it was adequate. I would certainly recommend Perelandra to anyone planning on visiting St. John. We checked out Caneel Bay and were really glad we did not decide on that Resort. And, although Perelandra is a 2 bedroom (we used only one and put our luggage in the other), but we did use both baths.

They help make Perelandra what we want it to be - a beautiful villa, stocked with everything a guest would want with a great view and location."

We were visiting St. John for a wedding and had reviewed a lot of properties before deciding on Villa Perelandra. I was very picky as we were traveling with our 3 month old. I liked Linda right off the bat; she was very accommodating and even rented a pack and play for our baby for no extra charge! She really put me at ease and I knew I picked the right place for us. The property itself is located 5 min away from Cruz Bay, which was very convenient. Emily, the property manager, greeted us at the ferry dock and took us to the property. She even checked in with us the next day to see if we needed anything. The house is beautiful, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. After a day at the beach we would relax by the pool, enjoy cool beverages (the fridge was graciously stocked with a variety of drinks) and take in the beautiful scenery. We even ate in one night and watched the sunset from the upper deck. In short, I highly recommend Villa Perelandra; the property is beautiful and the service stellar. Thank you Linda!

Recently stayed 9 nights at Perelandra, great Cruz Bay location..very easy to get to. Spotless villa! It's the perfect size for one or two couples, well stocked kitchen, all the beach chairs and towels you would need, WIFI, nice size bathrooms, sun deck and pool...the list goes on. Upper deck is very spacious and the views are to die for! I have stayed at about 8 villas on the Island and this is one of the best ones. The owner Linda Gallagher was great to deal with when booking the villa and Cimmaron took care of everything else while we were there. I would definitely stay there again!

Excellent vacation

I recently stayed 7 nights at Perelandra with my wife, 9 month old daughter, and inlaws. We had a fabulous vacation. The views are amazing and the screened in porch was wonderful in the evenings when the Mosquitos arrive. The pool was perfect for an afternoon swim as its in direct sun from midday forward. Within very short distance of downtown Cruz bay and the best market in town, Starfish. The kitchen was fully equipped to prepare any type of meal. The owner Linda was very easy to work with, I highly recommend Perelandra.

Lovely hillside villa with views of Cruz Bay

Lovely comfortable villa in the hills above Cruz Bay. Two bedrooms - one with queen bed with views of St Thomas from the bed. The other a kingside bed downstairs. We tried both rooms! Great bathrooms with safe, hairdryers, toiletries. Gas barbecue on large terrace. We counted 9 iguanas in the trees one day and many hummingbirds. Small pool where we spent a lovely afternoon. Shady spots and sunny ones. Large washer and dryer which was very appreciated. There were even binoculars to borrow as we forgot ours and great beach chairs, coolers and beach towels provided. Kitchen very well stocked. Tv, DVD player, iPod docker and best of all Wifi as we needed to keep in touch with our children during the trip. Linda was great to deal with. Don't want to leave! Highly recommended.

Spectacular Villa with Great Views

Left on Jul 27, 2013 for a stay in Jul 2013
This was our second trip to St John. If we were to return, we would certainly stay at Perelandra. Perelandra is a beautiful villa. The villa is very well maintained and it is very close to town. The view of St Thomas from the back porch area is equally beautiful in the morning as in the evening. The owner has given great thought to equipping the villa. The kitchen has a new stainless steel refrigerator and fully equipped kitchen. We cooked some meals in and always were able to find what we needed. The screened in porch is great for the evening when the bugs are out. The ceiling fan in it helps it stay comfortable. Whether you are planning to spend the day at the beach or a day at the pool you have what you need to enjoy the day. Beach supplies included several nice beach chairs, two sizes of coolers, umbrellas, and beach blanket and beach towels. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool area after a day at the beach. The pool area has two lounge chairs as well as a couple upright chairs and small tables around it. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and are air conditioned which was great given the heat in July. Our favorite beach was Maho so be sure to check it out. A little further to drive but good snorkeling and nice white beach. Our family would highly recommend this villa and booking directly with the owner.

This was out 2nd visit to Perelanda. The first was 10 years ago for our honeymoon and this time we went back with our children, it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The villa is well maintained, clean and updated, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals (though we used the grill most nights to take full advantage of the view!) We loved our time in St.John and would definitely go back to Perelandra.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Perelandra and can't say enough positive things about the house, the location, the owner and the management company. This was our first time to St. John so we had no idea how to chose the perfect place to stay - but Perelandra was definitely it! The house is clean and homey with an AMAZING view and a great little pool for cooling off or hanging out. My six year old son spent a TON of time in that pool and loved it. The house has a very secluded feel, as it sits nestled into the hillside, and has with the most incredible view of Cruz Bay, St. Thomas and other islands. It is well-stocked with all you need for picnics on the beach and hanging out at the pool (plus the sunburn you'll inevitably get:)). The location is so great because you are two minutes from the Star Market (and liquor store) and three minutes from "downtown" Cruz Bay + the road that takes you to all the beautiful North Shore beaches. Finally, the management company is very attentive and the owner, Linda, was very patient with my MANY emails before the trip asking questions about the house, the island, etc. St. John is a beautiful island with tons to do - we went to the beach and snorkled almost every day and spent a ton of time in our little pool and admiring the view from our porch. My six year old son did NOT want to leave. Perelandra is a great spot!

Wonderful Villa with Wonderful Owners and Management

After spending 9 nights at Perelandra with our 9 year old twin daughters, my wife and I absolutely enjoyed every second of our trip to St. John and our accommodations at Perelandra. The pool was perfect for the 4 of us. This villa actually was the perfect size for our family of four and I can see where two couple would be happy staying here as well. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were well maintained, stocked, private and nicely designed and appointed. Linda (owner) and Cimmaron (mgmt. company) were very helpful for us first timers on the island. I've read here on TripAdvisor where some folks didn't like the fact that there is no air conditioning in the living / kitchen area. While this might trouble some people, we had no issue with it whatsoever. (and we were there in June!) It's a tropical environment on St. John so we knew what kind of weather to expect. Any heating up in the afternoons could be lessened by closing the storm blinds while out at the beaches. When we would return in the afternoons / evenings the nice, cool pool helped refresh us in the late evenings. There are some of the most beautiful views from that wonderful deck and balcony. (where we spent most of our time at the villa) We played games in the screened in porch a couple of evenings as well. Zero complaints from us on this villa. Thanks to Linda and Cimmaron for everything!

The setup of the two bedrooms make it perfect for a family of four, two couples or even the two single women I have coming soon. Perelandra is also popular with honeymoon couples. We've hosted many. Thank you for a great, informative review. Your family is welcome back anytime."

"We try hard to make sure Perelandra is constantly updated and outfitted to insure our guests get "just what they need" from a vacation on St. John. Yes, the view and the sunsets are incredible, it's quiet and secluded but still a five minute drive to Cruz Bay and close to our beautiful National Park beaches. Those are some of the reasons we chose to make Perelandra ours. We are happy when our guests are happy. Many of them come back and we hope you will too."

My husband and I just spent a wonderful week at Perelandra. The villa was beautiful -- very comfortable and clean, with a gorgeous view across the water to St. Thomas. We cooked out on the grill on the nights we didn't go out to dinner. The villa is very convenient to a nice market and close to downtown. We'd definitely recommend it!!

Incredible stay at Perelandra!

Left on Jun 22, 2015 for a stay in Jun 2015
My wife, another couple and I stayed at Perelandra for 1 week in June 2015. We are 2 couples who met on our honeymoon 5 years ago and have the same wedding anniversary. We wanted to meet up and celebrate together. We decided on staying in St. John and found Perelandra as a great villa option for us. We couldn't believe how perfect this place was! The view and location are the best parts in a long list of great things about this villa. The unobstructed view of St. Thomas in the distance and Cruz Bay is perfect to wake up to and when winding down at night. The pool was also a great place to wind down after a long day of swimming at the beaches. We would make some drinks, turn on the stereo, and relax in the pool. Perelandra was centrally located. It is only about a 3-5 minute drive down a steep hill and one main road to the center of Cruz Bay and the road that leads to the North Shore beaches. St. John's market and a gas station are both right at the bottom of the steep hill. Drive 1 minute in the opposite direction and you will reach Starfish Market, which has Sam and Jack's Deli upstairs (had the best deli sandwiches). We were very impressed with how clean the villa was. No ants or pests finding their way in. All the dishes and pots were clean and ready to use. All the appliances were in great working shape. The grounds and condition of the house were beautiful. The washer and dryer were clean and very convenient. Cimmaron Property management were very helpful. They were there to lead us to the villa when we go off the car barge. They showed us around the house, gave us the keys and recommended some restaurants, bars, and beaches. One night we called the concierge service to make reservations on the night of our anniversary. They ended up getting us the last available table that night. I cannot say enough great things about our stay at Perelandra. We were very happy we chose to stay there, and recommend it to any small family or small groups of people looking for a relaxing and fun villa in St. John.

"I am so happy to hear you all had such a great time! Thank you for this great review! When I hear how guests appreciate all we do to keep Perelandra beautiful, up to date, well stocked, sparkling clean and how our management company goes out of their way to help our guests, I know all the effort we all put in is well worth it. Our villa is now solar powered so as well we are doing what we can to help our environment."

Outstanding Villa with specaticular views!!!

Left on Aug 2, 2015 for a stay in Jul 2015
I couldn't wait to write this review! My husband, our 2 year old daughter and in laws just got back 2 days ago from Perelandra on the island of St John in the USVI and we are missing it already!!! After missing our flight we were just excited to be on the island but once we arrived at the villa we were THRILLED! This place is a hidden oasis! On top of a hill overlooking the gorgeous Cruz Bay and St Thomas in the distance we felt so relaxed and ready to enjoy! We were met by Colby from Cimmaron management company at the car barge ferry and he took us straight there. He was the most friendliest person and so eager to help us with anything and everything. (they even had a complimentary bag of goodies soda, snacks and RUM!! along with a jug of water to get us started) This villa was also EXTREMELY clean! Not 1 ant, spider, or any bug!!!!! My husband daughter and I stayed in the bedroom on the lower floor which worked out great. We had the king size bed and my daughter had a blow up mattress (of course she ended up in bed with us) which was fine because we had so much room. That king mattress was the MOST comfortable bed we have EVER slept on (we really would like the brand of that mattress because we are wanting to buy the same one now) The bedrooms had air conditioners which were so quiet you had no clue they were on. The bathrooms were beautiful! The walk in showers were huge and so relaxing, especially ours downstairs because it had a screened in skylight which was wonderful. You could hear the birds chirping and you felt one with nature. The beautiful pool was just the right size and temperature for our family. Great to cool off in or jump in after a day at the beach!! The abundance of iguana and little lizards was fantastic ( my mother in law was terrified but it was fantastic to be so close) I also loved that there was a humming bird feeder on the top deck, every morning with breakfast and coffee our little hummers would come visit and it was so peaceful. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need!!!! The grill came in handy, we grilled hot dogs and steaks that we picked up from Starfish Market which is about a 2 minute drive from the villa (so convenient) they have everything you could possibly need! Downtown Cruz Bay is maybe 5 minutes away and has great food, shopping ect. Our daughter had a fantastic time playing on the top deck and watching the birds and lizards. And being able to go from the living room to outside in 1 step! This villa is sensational and we cant wait to come back!!! Hopefully as a family of 4 next time!!!!!!! Thanks for everything!

"What a wonderful review! Thank you! I just love when our gorgeous villa meets all the needs and wants of our guests. The view, the location and the villa itself is why we bought Perelandra. And we just keep on making it better. I haven't even seen our new dining area table and chairs or the new solar panels on our roof. Your remark on our air conditioning made me laugh. When it was first installed I called the company because I was convinced it wasn't working because I could hear nothing! Imagine my chagrin when while I was talking the air was perfectly cooled. I'm glad your family had a wonderful time. Please come back!"
