Your Place in Paradise

Three Generations in Paradise

We have been to St. John many times since our honeymoon in 1999. We have always stayed in a different villa, but Sanctuary was always one we said we would go back to one day. We traveled with our 2 children (13 and 9) and my husbands parents. The Villa did not disappoint.

It is still as welcoming and accommodating as it was when we stayed there in 2004. The kitchen and all it's amenities were a highlight of the house! One suggestion I would make is to have a couple beach chairs that are higher off the ground. This would really help out the older people when traveling to the beach. Other than that it was perfect!

Home Again

This is our 8th year at The Sanctuary. It never disappoints. We were thrilled and felt immediately at home on our first trip with our family of 8. We have had 6, 4, 3 and just the two of us and it has always been as welcoming as the first visit. We have our privacy with a view that is hard to beat. The close proximity to Cruz Bay makes it great for dinners out. We will return again!

A Great Place to Stay

This was our 4th visit to St. John. We have stayed in Peter Bay, Cruz Bay and Catherinesburg. This was our first stay in Rendevous Bay. We traveled with two other couples and our 3 kids, it was a perfect layout with two of the bedrooms having separate baths and the one our family used was downstairs with a shared bath with our kids. The house was beautifully appointed and had many extras as far as supplies needed for cooking so we didn't have to purchase things we may use just one time. The view is amazing and the location was convenient to town. The downstairs bedrooms are only accessible by steps outside of the villa, but since the weather is usually nice it wasn't a problem for our crew. Mark at SeaView Homes was very accommodating and helped us plan our trip along the way. The owners have thought of everything needed to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Everything in this home is well maintained and very clean. Thank you Wilson's for sharing your beautiful home with us.
