Island Time is a charming 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a pool and hot tub. This classic Caribbean design consists of two buildings which are connected by spacious decks and patios. Upon your arrival, you walk into the colorful and lushly landscaped garden courtyard and when enter through the front door, you will be immediately welcomed by the warm and inviting atmosphere, the colorful tropical furnishings and the majestic views looking out towards the ever changing blues in the turquoise seas.
The air-conditioned great room consists of the kitchen, living and dining areas, which are surrounded by screened sliding glass doors, all looking out towards the stunning views. On the right, is the entrance to the west master bedroom and private bath, while the equal sized east master bedroom and private bath is outside access, and is located in a separate bedroom cabana.
Located off the great room, is a covered outdoor sitting area, perfect for those looking to relax in the shade. Between the main house and bedroom cabana, you will enjoy your outside dining area, perfectly positioned to maximize the beautiful views. A few stairs down, will be the spacious pool deck, pool and hot tub. Here you will enjoy working on your golden tan, or maybe you prefer to float the day away in your private pool, all while looking up at the blue sky and puffy white clouds, and in the evenings, especially at sunset, you will enjoy a soothing hot tub as you gaze out at the fiery sunsets over Devers Bay.
Island Time is perfect for everyone looking for a breathtaking setting that welcomes you the moment you arrive.

Island Time is blessed with a wonderful setting about 60 feet above the, beach at Dever’s Bay. It sits above the villas Sunset Beach and Dream Come True, and it’s two stones throws away from Dolphin Run. Dever’s Bay is located on the south side of Bovocoap Point, which is the peninsula that separates Chocolate Hole Harbor from Hart Bay and Rendezvous Bay. Dever’s is a small bay with less than a dozen homes, so it retains a very pleasant sense of peacefulness, privacy and seclusion. A dead end road takes you to Island Time and there are only a few homes beyond you, so this quiet neighborhood experiences little road noise. Usually the only sound you’ll hear will be the surf gently breaking on the beach below you.
Island Time faces south – southwest and the sun deck and patio are bathed in sun all day and the sunset and ocean views are beautiful. The lovely view sweeps from St Croix in the south, past Frenchcap Cay and St James Islands, to St Thomas in the west. Island Time is less than a 10 minute drive into Cruz Bay, where you are sure to enjoy the many fine restaurants, shops and beach bars that are located in this picturesque town.

Island Time can be described in four words; exceptionally cute, charming and adorable. We could stop there and let the photos tell the story, but, as you may have noticed, we always have something more to add.
Island Time was purchased in January, 2007 and we began offering it for rent in Feb.07. Its new owners also own the very popular 2-bedroom villa, Cliffside; these owners definitely know how to pick a winner. Prior to its purchase, Island Time was lightly used and only occasionally rented. It's in like new condition and the owners are committed to keeping it that way.
The location, design and appearance of Island Time all contribute to its charm appeal but its location is the biggest contributor. The quiet, peaceful and small tropical cove called Dever's Bay is an excellent location that our guests love. This setting provides privacy and tranquility, all day sunshine, the relaxing background music of surf breaking on the beach, beautiful views from every room, and gorgeous sunsets.
With its soft pastel colors, tasteful décor and classic design, the house itself is also quite appealing. This is an intimate and very romantic villa that is a superb choice for honeymooners or lovers, but it's also large enough to comfortably accommodate two couples or a small family. You're 5-10 minutes from Cruz Bay, but very much in your own tropical dream world.
If you desire a larger yet equally appealing villa on Dever's Bay, take a look at Dream Come True (3 bedrooms), or Sunset Beach (4 bedrooms).
- We did not want to leave St John or our villa, Island Time! Thank you for everything!
- This was our first trip to St John and our vacation could not have been better. We LOVED our villa, Island Time! It was absolutely perfect for our needs. We thought the location was ideal and the views magnificent! Thank you!
- Thank you very much for our wonderful stay at Island Time! The house, the location, the view, the weather could not have been more perfect!
- We just wanted to say how nice it was to be back at Island Time (we feel it is our home away from home though we do not own it, wish we did!). It is always sad to leave! Everything seemed to be in order. It was good to see walls painted in bedroom (off kitchen) and new bed pillows, etc. to brighten room(s) up. The outdoor fabric and wicker furniture are new, right? Tags on fabric I think gave it away? Four new beach towels were good too since the older four were showing age! Believe the grill was new too? I cleaned it pretty well before leaving to keep it looking new.
- We had a wonderful week and really loved Island Time. Everything worked out well and your staff in St. John was very helpful. Loved it and hope to go back next year.
Thank you for your interest in Island Time!
Our villa consultants have 30+ years of knowledge and we look forward to helping you find your perfect villa vacation!
