Know Before You Go...

Whether you’re coming down for a getaway with friends or a big family reunion, Ami La Vita is perfect. There are two king suites, one queen, and one twin, so you can bring travelers of all ages. The two lower bedrooms are connected, which is great for families. The villa is located near Cruz Bay, but far enough away that you can enjoy some peace and quiet. The neighborhood is posh and exclusive, just above tranquil Klein Bay.

Outstanding views!

Ami La Vita is a posh, spacious villa with breathtaking views and comfortable design. Located in an exclusive neighborhood above Klein Bay, Ami La Vita is an ideal choice for families and couples alike.

Beautiful tiled balconies and breezeways connect the ample indoor and outdoor living spaces. A large lap pool lays at the edge of the lounging deck, and a small powder room sits adjacent. Guests can lounge on the hammock, cook on the grill, or sunbathe in one of the chaises around the sundeck. Ami La Vita is minutes away from a pebble beach perfect for morning swims or snorkeling, and the villa provides beach towels, folding chairs, coolers, and tote bags. The outdoor shower lets guests rinse off the sand and saltwater before hopping in the pool or laying out to sun-dry. Spend the evenings on the expansive covered balcony overlooking the bay and starlit sky. There’s no better place to uncork a bottle of wine than the shaded dining balcony.

Foodies will appreciate the full-service kitchen outfitted with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and two dining areas. The adjacent living room offers cushioned seating and a flatscreen TV, and sliding glass doors open to the balcony. A Tesla power wall keeps the villa energy-efficient, and a washer and dryer are available. Each of Ami La Vita’s bedrooms are separated across the villa’s two levels, which are connected by an exterior staircase. Two of the four suites have outdoor showers, and each suite opens to panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. There are two king suites, one queen suite, and one twin suite with two beds.

Ami La Vita enjoys easy access to several beaches and is a 10-15 minutes drive from Cruz Bay. Cruz Bay is home to most of St. John’s restaurants, activities, and shops.

Ami La Vita Villa

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

Fantastic Villa! Quiet, Clean, Pleasant and Updated interior. Located away from primary road but close to the beaches, downtown, and stores. Extremely quiet inside and outside. Comfortable furniture and beds. Relax in the beautiful family room or float the day away in the terrific pool. Gaze upon an unobstructed wonderful bay view that soothes the soul from the fabulous covered lanai. This Villa is a Gem not to be missed.

Excellent service. WhereToStay walks you through the entire vacation process. Continual communication through the entire process. Met at the Cruz Bay dock by Viky and taken to the car rental then followed Viky to the Villa. Viky provided a Villa tour along with how the Villa operates. Viky pointed out interesting facts pertaining to ST John as well who owned the Big Houses. Great service. We were also contact by the WhereToStay throughout our week asking if we questions or any issues; thank you for checking in on us during our stay!

Ami La Vita was perfect for our family

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

We loved everything about Ami La Vita. The views were stunning, the house is very well kept and stocked. Beds, pillows and AC kept us very comfortable. The driveway is really steep and takes some careful maneuvering. Loved the pool, chaise loungers, floats and noodles. Great beach chairs and thermoses. Would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!

Shawna was great. Like a personal concierge. I loved the services she offered through Wheretostay, her personal email follow-up, etc. I have already recommended two friends to Shawna. Thanks for the great service, Shawna!

Great Villa

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

We loved the house….great location, great views, loved the outdoor showers! The top notch cookware, was not expected, but was very appreciated, as we did a lot of meals there. The downstairs bedrooms was not a great layout for privacy, there is not a solid door between bathroom and bedroom, just a curtain…very odd we thought,...would be a nice to add a door there so that if someone from other bedroom is using the jack and jill bathroom, you still have privacy in that bedroom. It was a wonderful vacation, would absolutely stay there again!!!

Shawna was great, very good about communication with us at every stage of booking process. So helpful to make sure that we had taxi, food, reservations, etc. LOVED that there was some food in fridge after long day of flying….a wonderful surprise and SO APPRECIATED!!!! Thank you!!!

Fantastic stay in Klein Bay for family of 6!

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

Home was all that we expected and then some more. Pictures don’t do it justice. We had a wonderful stay for our family of six. House had all the amenities we needed and kitchen was well equipped for cooking. Views from all rooms are amazing (especially the outdoor showers). Very pleased with our decision to rent for the week.

Work/Play Stay

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

Very nice property with a stunning view of Klein Bay, 10 minute drive to town. Good island vibe with modern amenities, though the kitchen could have been better equipped and the grill was in an unappealing location. The bedrooms were nice, 2 upstairs and 2 down (more for kids), baths were good (though interesting that main showers were outdoor). Pool was nice, not huge but bigger than the pix on the site, with good floats and a very convenient 1/2 bath, fridge, and sink. Lounge chairs by the pool were really comfortable. The WiFi was fine, maybe could use an extender or two. Maybe our favorite spot was the large outdoor table on the lanai, which had ceiling fans, lights, and a stunning view over the bay - we worked from there whenever possible, and ate nearly every meal there as well.

Overall a very nice property that won’t disappoint.

Shawna was great - flexible, understanding, and patient. We need to talk to her about planning for 2022

Views out of this world

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

The house was everything we wanted and more. The walk to the beach was a good work out, but well worth it. Kitchen was stocked better than any we have ever rented.

Shawna is the best. She was quick to answer any questions we had and to arrange everything to make sure our trip was wonderful.

The Perfect Family R&R Retreat!

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

Ami La Vita Villa is a hillside gem! We are a family of six, with adult children from Chicago and London, who stayed at the villa between Christmas and New Year’s. The house was perfectly suited with space for us to come together, while providing enough room to carve out our own private oasis to rest and rejuvenate.

Shawna was fantastic, and helped us pick the perfect Caribbean location to meet our family’s needs. I would highly recommend WhereToStay.com and Shawna for any and all of your Caribbean travel planning.

Very Nice Villa

Ami La Vita Villa, St. John villa review

Ami La Vita is in the Klein Bay Area, which is a very nice and typically quiet neighborhood. We’ve stayed all across the island over the last 20 years, and Klein Bay is one of our favorite areas along with Maria Bluff. The only point to be aware of is the proximity of the new villa next door, Casa La Famiglia. The vegetation keeps the site private, however, conversations over a low voice are easily overheard from the pool deck and the outdoor dining area. Thankfully, our neighbors for our second week of the trip were relatively quiet, as opposed to the first week neighbors who were loud and boisterous. Once inside, there is no sign of your neighbors. The villa itself is very clean and well equipped, and has everything you need for a great St. John vacation.

Shawna is very attentive and quick with replies. A pleasure to work with.
