LOCATION. Upon entering Palm Villa, you are immediately struck by the magnificent views that open up in front of you, for Palm Villa is located in an excellent setting on Gifft Hill, on a private and quiet hilltop 750 feet above the blue-green Caribbean Sea. Sometimes your view stretches all the way to the mountains of El Yunque and El Toro, 80 miles off in the distance in the rain forests of Puerto Rico. Your captivating views sweep almost 180 degrees and include more than a dozen islands and cays, from Frenchcap Cay and St James islands in the south, past St. Thomas, Thatch and Lovango Cays, and beyond the Hans Lollick Islands in the northwest. At night after a beautiful sunset, the soft lighting, gentle trade winds and twinkling lights of distant islands create a wonderfully romantic and restful environment. During the day, your southwest orientation provides you with blessed sun on your pool deck from 9am to sunset. For those looking for some cover, two 9 ft umbrellas were recently added and are bolted to the deck. If opened the umbrellas offer a peaceful and shaded place to sit and relax or for those looking for sun, the umbrellas can be easily closed and you can work on your golden tan; the choice is yours. The restaurants and many other delights of Cruz Bay are a 10-15 minute drive on paved roads.

DESIGN. Palm Villa is a fine example of traditional Caribbean architecture, with a pool, Tropitone deck furniture, exposed beam cathedral ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, screened sliding windows, mahogany French doors, and terracotta tiled floors throughout the interior and also on the pool deck, creating a classic and comfortable living environment. The villa consists of four hip roofed buildings connected by decks, covered walkways and garden patios. The entrance to Palm opens to the pool deck and the fabulous views. On your left is the great house with the living, interior dining and kitchen areas plus a loft guest bedroom. On your right are the two poolside bedrooms. The master bedroom is a large suite located on the east (left) side of the great room. All the bedrooms are air conditioned except the loft bedroom.

provide a shady place to relax on this very sunny pool deck

KITCHEN. The original kitchen was ripped out in 2008 and replaced with a granite, mahogany and stainless steel beauty. Located just off the pool deck, the kitchen has great views and puts the chef right in the middle of the action. The new kitchen has mahogany cabinets and granite countertops, along with a s/s refrigerator, 4-burner gas stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, and sink. It also includes a toaster, blender, drip coffee maker and a complete selection of pots, pans, and kitchenware. A separate laundry room with washer/dryer is located off the kitchen and a gas barbeque grill is on the deck.

CARIBBEAN VILLAS' COMMENTS. We have managed Palm Villa since it was first built and this villa remains a very popular rental villa. Palm Villa was designed by the same architect who designed the other Gifft Hill home, Coconuts and also a remodeled version of Palm, Sea Wind. Based on reviews from hundreds of past guests from these three homes, this design is one of St. John's all time favorites. It's popular, in part, because it combines a traditional style with modern comforts such as air conditioning and a pool. Palm also owes its popularity to its quiet and peaceful setting. Palm sits high up on Gifft Hill and this setting produces unforgettable sunsets, fascinating night views and sunshine and warm breezes throughout the day. This south-facing villa is bathed in poolside sun from 9 AM to sunset and the sunny pool/ pool deck is the center of this home and is definitely a wonderful place to linger and relax. Guests also enjoy the tropical flowers and lush vegetation that surrounds you, or the clothing optional privacy, or the roomy great house and master bedroom suite. Many past guests who have stayed at Palm Villa agree that this is a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation retreat that is perfect for honeymooners, couples and families.

The owner's of Palm Villa have another home on St. John. It's a Grecian inspired, 3-bedroom villa called Ilios, located in Hart Bay. If you love listening to the sound of breaking surf and the joy of easy access to beach walks and snorkeling, take a look at Ilios.
