The views from the pool, sundeck and the villa all look south into the rolling green hills of the south coast of St. John, but you have only a very limited water view.  (It’s a 10-15 minute drive into Cruz Bay on the scenic road that runs along St. John’s south shore.

    Caribbean Villas Comments

    • Caribbean Villas Comments:

      The builder of Darcini has built a number of very luxurious St. John homes, and Darcini is another villa that incorporates top quality design, materials, workmanship and furnishings. Darcini shares all the attributes of St. John’s many fine luxury homes – central a/c throughout, five oversized private bedrooms with TVs and large closets, a spacious apartment on the first level, arched mahogany doors throughout, a state of the art kitchen, and a very private, quiet and somewhat secluded location with a gated entry. Darcini meets our definition of a top-notch luxury home in all criteria except one. It lacks the scenic water views offered by most St. John villas, although the views of rolling green hills are attractive. The rental price takes the lack of a water view into account, so you’re getting a true luxury villa at a nicely discounted price. If you are all right not having the water view, Darcini may just be the perfect fit for your villa vacation!
