Aqua Gem is a charming 2 bedroom 2 ½ bath home with a private pool. The main level of Aqua Gem includes the living, kitchen and dining areas along with a ½ bath. The great room is surrounded by French doors, with invisible screens, which open on to a wrap- around deck and includes beautiful views overlooking Great Cruz Bay Harbor. There is a spiral staircase which takes you down to the lower bedroom level, where there are two bedrooms, each with a king bed, a/c and en-suite bath with tiled shower. Both bedrooms have screened sliders which open on to the private 700 square foot pool deck and 20 x 12 foot pool.

This two level design with its interior access bedrooms is a perfect layout for families traveling with children, couples looking for similar size bedrooms, or honeymooners, looking to start their new life together. If you are a larger group, traveling together, but want your own home, Ocean Pearl is the sister villa to Aqua Gem. You can walk between the two homes and if rented together, can easily accommodate a party of 8.

  • Caribbean Villas Comments:

    This appealing villa was added to our rental program for all the right reasons:
    Aqua Gem enjoys a good location in a desirable hillside setting and is a 5-minute drive to the restaurants and shops of Cruz Bay and an 8-10 minute drive to beautiful North Shore National Park beaches.
    Second, Aqua Gem was designed to be a affordable rental home but it has many of the features of our more expensive villas, such as sunset views, a delightful pool and sundeck, air conditioning, wireless internet, a 32in. flat screen TV, decks on both levels, colorful and fragrant tropical landscaping, an attractive décor, and a very attractive price.
    Third, The child safe railings on both decks make this a good choice for families with small children and the equal master bedrooms are perfect for 2 couples. If you are looking to rent 2 villas in combination, Ocean Pearl, its neighbor, are a perfect pair of Caribbean twins that are connected by a footpath.

    - March 2019 - We stayed at the Aqua Gem last was Great!!!   Kind of a silly question, but the bath towels were so fluffy and absorbant I would love to purchase some.  Can you give me any information on the towels so I can order some?
    - We had a lovely time! The home was very good for us. It was conveniently located to the beaches and points of interest that we had!!
    - The design and layout of Aqua Gem are fantastic and we loved the home!!
    - Our stay was lovely! Aqua Gem was comfortable and an excellent value for a family! We had a fabulous week on St John and hope to return next spring!
    - We loved Aqua Gem and Caribbean Villas! Having Luciah meet us at the dock and give us a little personal commentary through town was such a treat!
    - Thank you and what a nice experience from Greg at the car barge to the girls in the office that took care of my need for a hairdryer!! Aqua Gem was nicely provisioned with the paper goods and soap etc so we only had to figure out where to swim and what to eat!!!!! Thanks, would love to go back!
    - We had a wonderful stay at Aqua Gem. I have visited St. John eight times (twice this year), and this was the easiest check in/out process I have ever experienced. And renting the jeep from your company was much easier as well. We will definitely be renting from you again!
