Convenient to both Cruz Bay and Klein Bay's famous beaches, Morningside Villa is the perfect attraction home for guests who want to enjoy picturesque views and total serenity. The modern wonders of the full, roomy kitchen will delight "foodies," and the unique and comfortable furnishings will help to keep guests relaxed during their stay. Arched doorways divide the space between dining and a beautiful, edgy swimming pool so the view is fantastic any time of the day, and with a comfortable breeze to boot. Wicker chairs and fluffy pillows mean you and your guests can confer in comfort, and the book library is another great bonus. With Morningside Villa, you are only five minutes away from the local fare of Cruz Bay.
Morningside Villa is a 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom island home that enjoys both sunrise to sunset views in complete privacy and comfort. The villa features a pool with attached whirlpool (not heated) on a private deck overlooking the waters of Rendezvous Bay. A short walk down the road leads you to the coral beach at Klein Bay where you can enjoy some of St. John's best snorkeling.
The Great Room, decorated in tropical colors, offers comfortable seating, and opens out onto the deck with a pool and spa, and plenty of room to lounge in the sun. Early risers can enjoy sunrises from the pool and spa area.
The traditional Caribbean arched doorways of this open-air villa practically call the outside in. Here guests can dine under vaulted ceilings while enjoying views of the bay below.
The four equal bedrooms with ensuite baths (one suite is also handicapped accessible) have private seating areas and electronic in-room safes large enough to accommodate a laptop. The two bedrooms on the upper level have private decks to enjoy the views. Late risers will appreciate the room-darkening drapes decorated in vibrant Caribbean colors.
The large open-air kitchen looks out over the pool and Klein Bay. Views of the Caribbean Sea will greet you as you relax on the deck.
Located just 5 minutes from Cruz Bay over all-paved roads, Morningside Villa is the perfect base from which to explore the world-class beaches, shopping, hiking, and dining that St. John has to offer.

Morningside Villa, St. John reviewVisited: June 2011
Don't be afraid of this rental! What a superb location, view, and villa.
This was our second trip to the island. We stayed at the Westin our first year. Our Morningside vacation consisted of eight people. It was a perfect setup for a family or multiple couples.
The poolside deck and view can't be beat. The kitchen rocked, and the bedrooms afford total privacy and space. Privacy was also tremendous as you could only see the top of one or two other villas and it by no means obstructed your view of the surrounding bays and landscape.
Vehicle rental is a must on this island. The short walk to Klein Bay beach was nice; however, this is not a swimming beach as it is very rocky.
Snorkeling was nice on calm days and stingrays abound. The island is just too beautiful to remain in the villa, but when you just need a day to relax, this is the perfect spot!
This villa was well stocked so you need not worry about grills, beach chairs, coolers, or any kitchen utensils. Driving on this entire island is not for the faint of heart - best stay at the Westin for that. But, it was only 10-12 minute drive into Cruz Bay and the privacy of this villa is priceless.
