La Collina is a well maintained, comfortable and spacious villa with many impressive features, including:
a/c in all four bedrooms, a peaceful, quiet and scenic location overlooking Great Cruz Bay, sun on the pool and decks from 9am to sunset, picturesque harbor views that include romantic Caribbean sunsets, a lovely new pool and sun deck bordered by palm trees and terraced gardens, convenient 6-minute access to the great restaurants in Cruz Bay,
July 2020 - We planned this with shorter notice due to Covid and could not have been happier with the outcome. The house is definitely more updated and even nicer than pictures show. We could not have been more pleased with the perfect location close to town and amazing views just overlooking the Westin resort. I would recommend getting the rental agency to show you around when checking in only because there are a few quirks we have learned over time. Make sure the laundry room is fully latched and locked before bedtime so the doors don’t bang all night. The TVs are also a little complicated but a few days of trial and error and they are working great(only for the kids to see sports because with this view TVs aren’t necessary). The porches are perfection. We barely spent any time in the den. The main room and kitchen don’t have A/C but with the front and back porches we didn’t really care. The 2 queen bedrooms are accessible through outside steps. Also fine for us since our kids are old enough. The pool is small but we used it daily. It’s great for an evening soak or a rousing game of Marco Polo. We feel so lucky to have picked this house and hope to come back soon.
- We had a fabulous time and the house hasn’t materially changed since our honeymoon 10 years ago. It is a great place! Thank you!
- Thanks for a great vacation in St John and at La Collina! This is the second time we stayed at La Collina and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The villa is in just the perfect location to everything! Thank you!
- Everyone had a wonderful time and we loved the house. We will be back!
- It was a terrific stay. Fantastic. We own a vacation home in South Carolina so we cleaned the place well because we know how it is! All the best.
Thank you for your interest in La Collina!
Our villa consultants have 30+ years of knowledge and we look forward to helping you find your perfect villa vacation!
