Experience the ocean views over Great Cruz bay and a private pool with waterfall from Blue Skies Villa! This wonderful 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom home is only a fifteen-minute walk to the Westin Hotel beach and restaurant, and can comfortably accommodate up to five couples with ease. The interior offers an inspirational touch to everything inside, and with the nearby beach and easily accessible restaurants, you can enjoy the villa and the local island attractions.
Blue Skies Villa is located in St. John's popular upscale Great Cruz Bay area. It is on a picturesque and quiet estate road with similar rental properties. Access is extremely easy, as it is located within two miles of Cruz Bay, yet you will enjoy total privacy. You can see Blue Skies' distinctive blue roofs as you drive towards to the villa. Pull into the ample parking area, and walk up to the villa on the native Island stone stairs that are lined with bougainvillea and Oleander. You will find the villa to be charming and understated--with an emphasis on ease of living, relaxation, and comfort.
Two structures make up Caribbean Blue Skies – a Main House on the upper level, and a Guest House on the pool deck level (the pool is large by Island standards). Large, wrap-around decks connect the structures, providing plenty of places for sunning and to enjoy the outdoors.
The villa features a bright, airy ambiance -- with tile floors, skylights, ceiling fans, and cushioned rattan furnishings. The full kitchen has every appliance you could need, including ice-maker (with purified water), blender, microwave, toaster, electric crisper, and, of course, a stove, dishwasher, sink and oven. The two air conditioned king master bed/baths are decorated in Caribbean colors and are appointed with art that was gathered from around the world. Each bedroom has its own private deck area. One master bathroom features fabulous hand-crafted Caribbean stone walls, and a romantic double shower that faces toward the sunset. the other King Master can be made into twin beds if you wish. The bathroom for this bedroom features a double sink and toilet that can be converted into a powder room. A flat screen TV, stereo/DVD, and WIFI is provided.
The Guest House has two more bedrooms, both full of color, and both with double doors that give you immediate access to the wrap-around decks. Each bedroom in the Guest House is a queen, with its own air conditioning and bathroom en suite. One of the bathrooms contains a bathtub for soaking. A kitchenette with a small refrigerator, sink, and microwave makes it easy to enjoy some time away from the other guests.
The fifth lower garden air-conditioned double bedroom has its own veranda with ceiling fan and sofa and private European-style bath.
Enjoy fabulous views in three directions, including two different bays. To the North you can see Great Cruz Bay Harbor and the beach at the Westin Hotel. To the West, you look out over Pillsbury Sound between St. John and St. Thomas, and you will be treated to glamorous sunsets.
You will enjoy St. John at its best when you stay at Blue Skies. The large swimming pool is perfect for an early morning dip. The best breezes on the Island will enhance your enjoyment of the sunset at cocktail time. You will also enjoy the second mini-kitchen on the pool deck where cold drinks can be handy. The gas barbecue grill makes meals at home fun to prepare and with any luck tasty and nourishing.
Dining can be indoors, or make use of the large outdoor teak dining table that seats eight. You can also take a short walk to the Westin Hotel where you are welcome to enjoy any of the restaurants as well as the beach and sport facilities.
The grounds at Caribbean Blue Skies are lush and mature, and full of color. Something is always blooming and fragrant. Walkways extend from the bedroom decks to other areas of the property, or you can just relax outside your bedroom and enjoy nature. We take pride in the natural beauty of Blue Skies.
Every Main Villa bedroom has double doors that lead to the outdoors; a garden bedroom with its own veranda provides the 5th bedroom. The extra-large wraparound decks afford views in three directions: Sunset view over St. Thomas, sailboats in Great Cruz Bay, and Chocolate Hole. Short stroll to beach, sports, restaurants, and exercise facilities (including tennis) at the Westin Hotel.

Although the water in the kitchen sink is filtered, guests generally buy water at the market to drink. There will be some water in the villa for you when you arrive as well as some other supplies.
Please conserve water. The villa has a huge cistern and it is checked before guests arrive, but it will run dry if water is overused.
The steps to the pool are always slippery in the morning and anytime it rains.
The deck was painted last year, which has cut down on the splinters, but children particularly should wear something on their feet on the deck.
