St. John villa expert

Know Before You Go...

Nestled in quiet Dever's Bay (on St. John's southwest shore), Vida de Mar is the perfect Caribbean holiday home for a family with older children or friends/couples traveling together. This luxurious beachfront villa is secluded yet only minutes from the shops and restaurants of Cruz Bay. The elaborate tropical furniture and sleek interior design pull together to create the artistic genius that is Vida de Mar, and with a private swimming pool and hot tub and unforgettable sunset views, this island home has everything you'll need. Best of all, Vida de Mar is only a short walk to the beach for some of the island's best snorkeling!

Vida de Mar Villa is a private beachfront villa located in an enclave of private luxury homes and just minutes from the town of Cruz Bay. Vida de Mar features five air-conditioned bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests with ease. Secluded, yet still minutes from town, you get the best of both worlds.

The air-conditioned Great Room is furnished in comfortable rattan furniture with colorful island fabrics. The Great Room's entertainment center includes a TV, VCR/DVD Player, Cable, Stereo, Tape Deck and CD Player, along with assorted games and books for your pleasure.

Guests can enjoy air-conditioned dining indoors or al fresco underneath the shimmering stars. The kitchen has many amenities to make cooking and dining a pleasure, including a blender, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, and trash compactor. The two Master Suites offer air-conditioning, ceiling fans for added comfort, as well as private open-air garden showers.

The Beach Cottage has two private bedrooms with separate entrances off of the main beachside deck. It's perfect for singles or teens. Private and secluded, the beach cottage lets you fall asleep to the sound of the surf. The Hibiscus Cottage has recently been remodeled into a private apartment that also doubles as a fifth bedroom. Each cottage also enjoys air-conditioning, TV, cable, and VCRs for individual comfort and convenience.

The large swimming pool deck area is tiled and offers a spacious pool and outdoor whirlpool spa, both with wonderful views of the bay, sailing yachts, and passing cruise ships in the distance. The spa looks out over the Caribbean Sea and south towards the island of St. Croix. The evening's sunset views add to the many pleasures of Vida de Mar Villa.

The rare and private 800-foot pebble beach promises hours of relaxed sun worshipping, swimming and exploring - including some of the best diving and snorkeling off of the beach at Dever's Bay.
