Breathtaking 180 degree views!

Heaven’s Gate is a Mediterranean-style, two-level home bordered by stone walls, landscaping, and tropical views. The privacy, tranquility, and natural beauty of this location emphasize St. John’s best qualities.

Heaven’s Gate Villa sits hillside overlooking Hurricane Hole, which is one of St. John’s most sheltered harbors. The harbor and hillside are part of the Virgin Islands National Park. Hurricane Hole has incredible snorkeling, and the National Park’s hiking trail leads to more snorkeling in Leinster Bay. Sunbathe anytime by the pool, which gets partial sun all day and visual privacy. Relax in the shade on one of six covered balconies and take in the 180º view, which encompasses Hurricane Hole, Round Bay, and the south shore. For elderly and handicapped guests, the parking area, sundeck, and main level are all on one level. All interior and exterior floors, decks, walkways, and stairs are tiled with rare, imported Jerusalem limestone. Combined with the tiled roofs, Doric columns, and archways, the look is decidedly Mediterranean. Heaven’s Gate also has a private driveway with a gated entrance and security cameras.

Guests enter the villa through the spacious Great Room, which contains the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The living and dining areas are furnished with antique mahogany furniture, French doors, and white Jerusalem tiles. A piece of stained glass, wall hangings, and valance lighting gives the Great Room a surreal ambience. In the living room, guests can watch movies on the 42-inch flatscreen TV and five-speaker Sony surround sound system. In the dining room, there’s a formal mahogany dining table and access to the deck. The kitchen is well-equipped with mahogany cabinets, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, a blender, toaster, and a coffeemaker. All four bedrooms have air-conditioning, flatscreen TVs, DVD players, 800-thread Egyptian cotton sheets, ocean views, balconies, and ensuite bathrooms. Three bathrooms have outdoor showers. Two master bedrooms are located on either side of the Great Room, ensuring privacy. The other two master bedrooms are on opposite sides of the lower level, accessed by exterior stairs. Both levels have a spacious, public veranda between the two bedroom balconies.

Heaven’s Gate’s large lot, lack of neighbors, and ideal location make it the perfect vacation rental for any small group. It’s less than 5 minutes from restaurants, bars, grocery stores, gas, and boat rentals in Coral Bay and 10-15 minutes from North Shore beaches. Cruz Bay is 20-30 minutes away, depending on whether guests take the direct North Shore Road or the scenic Centerline Road.

Amazing Place!

Heaven's Gate Villa, St. John villa review

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heaven’s Gate Villa. The view was amazing. The villa really had a “get away from it all” feel to it. The breezes were constant, so no bugs or oppressive heat. Our routine was enjoying one of St John’s beaches or hiking trails earlier in the day, and coming back to the villa for relaxing pool time with cocktails and that view. The villa itself was fancy, yet comfortable. We slept soundly in our comfortable bed. We thought we would change the locks and stay longer, but Hugo was too nice to do that! We will be back!

Shawna was very professional and answered all our questions promptly. She kept us informed of anything we needed to do for our upcoming trip and made sure we were ready to go. I wouldn’t hesitate to use WhereToStay and Shawna again.

Amazing Stay

Heaven's Gate Villa, St. John villa review

Heaven’s Gate was the perfect home base for our trip to St. John. With four private bedrooms, two on the upper level and two on the lower level, it provided an ideal floor plan. The landscaping is immaculate and the pool was a very nice size for our kids. We really enjoyed waking up and sitting out on one of the porches overlooking the water. The kitchen was very nicely equipped if you are inclined to prepare meals at home. We did have a little trouble with the phone and TV’s, but it wasn’t a big deal because we were enjoying such a wonderful home. We found Coral Bay to be ideal for our family, since we are very laidback and enjoy the non-commercialized feel. We did find plenty of restaurants within 5-10 minutes of Heaven’s Gate. Our favorite was The Thirsty Donkey, but we also had very good meals at Skinny’s, Aqua Bistro, and Shipwreck Landing. We would certainly recommend Heaven’s Gate and hope to return as soon as the bank account allows.

Our experience with Shawna was excellent as she was always on top of everything.

A Mixed Bag

Heaven's Gate Villa, St. John villa review

Absolutely stunning views! Landscaping and exterior space is lovely. Great East End location. Love the clothes lines. Loved the coffee maker options. Outdoor showers are great. Nice bathroom storage. Didn’t use the grill, but looked like it was in great shape.

Pool is so cold as to be unusable.
Kitchen is NOT well appointed. One measuring teaspoon. Nothing else. No measuring cups. One mixing bowl. No storage containers.
No bathroom toiletries—just doesn’t stand up to other villas in its price range.
No drapery on master bedroom porch-access door, so when anyone is in the great room at night, the light shines right into the master bedroom.
Lots of deferred maintenance—screens that are pulled out or taped back in haphazardly, light switches that go to lights that are no longer operable, including one in pool area. Ignition on stovetop inoperable, so need to light with lighter—either have to close all the windows to prevent breeze from blowing out the lighter, or have two people stand around with cupped hands.
Lightbulbs out everywhere.
Had to raid other bedrooms for hangers.
No pitchers for iced tea or anything else.
No sharp knives (couldn’t even chop veggies!) and no sharpener.
No dust pan, so couldn’t sweep.
Only one wash cloth provided in each bathroom.
Very limited supply of plastic ware for use on patio and around pool.
Kitchen faucet is shot. It leaks.
No way to plug the kitchen sink (this wastes water when cleaning up).
Shawna’s great. We’re very familiar with the island, so all went well. Glad we didn’t rent for April!

Response from owner:
We decluttered kitchen due to COVID but will add a few items back.
Soap, shampoo and conditioner are provided for guests. Toilet paper and paper towels.
The master bedroom porch access is an active access door and is not draped for this reason as all drapes would blow, get trapped in the slider door and tear. If the guests needed privacy, they could have closed the shutter on that door. 
All light bulbs work. They need to ensure they are using the correct switch, the stove burners work and there’s just one screen with tape on it. Guests didn’t call anyone and had they called they would have reinstructed them on how to find light switches. The stove is gas so they turn the dial and wait for the gas to ignite.
There are lots of hangers. Small closet in master bedroom has extra hangers.
There is a pitcher - a pure water filter pitcher in the refrigerator. We took out the other pitcher to try to declutter kitchen but will put one back so there’s two.
There are serrated knives and they are sharp, however we will re-sharpen them.
There are three dust pans onsite. One in windmill, one in upper closet and one in lower laundry room.
There are tons of washcloths out for guests and extras are in hallway linen closet.
There is extra plastic ware in storage under stairs. Guests have access to this as there’s snorkel gear also in that storage room and these guests used the snorkel gear and beach chairs. They were not put back in this area as they were asked to. 
Kitchen faucet isn’t leaking. Cleaner used it upon check-in and also on departure day. Previous guests had no issues. Current guests have no issues.
There is a sink stopper onsite. Cleaner used it to prep villa and the second sink has a stainless steel drying rack for dishes in it.
