St. John villa expert

Know Before You Go...

Couples who want privacy, space, and convenience to all of St. John’s best attractions will love Bananaquit Villa. The views are amazing, the location can’t be beat, and the villa is super spacious. You won’t be able to get enough of the sunset each night - they’re unbelievable from the upper balcony!

Overlooks Pillsbury Sound, St. Thomas, and more!

Bananaquit Villa overlooks sailboats drifting across the waves, sunsets sinking beneath the horizon, and the twinkling sights of St. Thomas from its elevated location in Virgin Grand Estates. With three bedrooms and a comfortable layout, this villa is ideal for couples.

Lush gardens with tropical flowers and foliage line the front walkway. Around the back of the house, there’s a generously sized pool between two lounging areas. Guests can dine, sunbathe, and gather al fresco with ease thanks to Bananaquit’s oversized terrace. Arched French doors open to the villa’s warm common area, which offers ample space for guests to relax in the air-conditioning. In the living room, there are games, books, and a flatscreen TV. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances and space to enjoy meals at both the breakfast bar and the sunbathed dining nook. Bananaquit’s three bedrooms each have an ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning, lots of windows, and gorgeous views. The ensuite bathrooms have double sink vanities, walk-in showers, and plenty of privacy. Each suite is exterior access only. The bedrooms are spread across two guest cottages. One cottage has a king suite and a twin suite with two beds that can be made up as a second king. The second cottage has a king suite.

Bananaquit is about 8 minutes from Great Cruz Bay’s beaches and restaurants, and an 18 minute drive to the North Shore beaches and nature trails.

Amazing Stay!

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

We loved Bananaquit! It was perfect for our family of 5! I cannot think of a better view on St. John than Bananaquit. The location is about 10-15 min from Cruz Bay, but we loved it because if gave us respite from the buzz of Cruz Bay, but it also gave us access to hiking trails and beaches closer to Coral Bay! The pool is amazing, and my kids loved it both in the morning before our adventures and to chill before dinner. All the bedrooms are great sizes. The kitchen is not huge, but perfect for easy meals. The outdoor deck area was amazing and we spent most of our time there when we were between activities or starting our days.

We had a minor issue (our fault!) and needed to call the Emergency line and the staff was amazing and solved our problem almost immediately. Truly amazing.

The “family room” was small, as there are only 5 seats to watch TV (we were there during March Madness!), and that included 3 people on a wicker sofa. But, it really didn’t matter as we spent so little time indoors. We improvised by moving dining room chairs over, but it wasn’t ideal. It could be an issue if a booking is looking for something more formal or to accommodate more than 5 people.

But, for us, it was PERFECT! Thank you Where to Stay for making everything seamless for our vacation to St. John!

Betsy and WhereToStay were impeccable! Our stay was perfect. in large part to them. I will only book through them in the future!

Beautiful villa with an incredible view!

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

Villa was just as described. All three bedrooms are wonderful with ensuites. The three bedrooms are equally nice. The pool has sun most of the day, so it is nice even in the late winter season. What views! Kitchen has everything you might need. Really enjoyed our stay and would stay again in the future.

Betsy was very responsive and proactive. Made it easy to plan our trip.

Our favorite villa to rent

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

Bananaquit has been enjoyed by our group so much. It is the only villa we have stayed at more than once. Layout is perfect for 3 couples, view for evening relaxing is great. Those caring for the villa do an excellent job.
Thanks for the great stay.

Perfect place for a perfect stay...

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

Bananaquit is an ideal place for couples or families to enjoy the full offerings of St John in a beautiful location with a breathtaking view. The layout of the vIlla is extremely well thought out as it allows for a great combination of community and privacy. We would definitely stay here again.

Shawna made everything easy and was a great “coach” for us in planning our trip. She communicates clearly and is very friendly and a pleasure to work with on addressing all trip and travel details. She gets a 5 star rating from our group!

Winter getaway 2022

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

Bananaquit was the perfect house for 3 couples. With equal bedrooms set in separate houses, it provided each couple with privacy and comfort. The views were amazing and the lush tropical landscaping greeted you each time you entered the home. The management was there when we ran low on gas and quickly replaced it to restore our hot water. The pool was beautiful but cool and a heater would have been an added bonus. Overall Bananaquit was a great place to stay!

The perfect stay!

Bananaquit, St. John villa review

This was the perfect stay for my family of 5. Just a short ride up from Cruz Bay, with all the amenities.
The pool and the views are spectacular!
The concierge service took care of everything for us, we are so grateful we found this gem. We can’t wait to go back!

Betsy took care of everything for us. I feel so lucky to have found her.
