La Collina is an appealing 4 bedroom 4 bath private home with a pool.  The spacious design consists of two levels,  the main level includes the great room and two master bedrooms and the lower level houses the two additional guest bedrooms.

The centerpiece of the main level is the great room with its open floor plan and 30 foot cathedral ceilings, stone walls and screened sliding glass doors that open on to a partially covered deck in the center, with sunning areas on either side. The kitchen, living and dining areas are comfortably furnished and look out to the stunning views of Great Cruz Bay Harbor.  By day, you will enjoy watching the boats glide by and in the evenings, the sunsets and twinkling lights of St Thomas, are not be missed.

The two master bedrooms (with a/c) are located on opposite sides of the great room, to ensure privacy, and both open on to the upper deck.  The two lower level guest bedrooms (with a/c) are accessed by an exterior staircase and are located on the far right of the villa.

The renovated pool and pool deck are located on the left side of the property, this tropical oasis includes ocean views, beautiful palm trees and colorful landscaping, making this a wonderful place to relax, ‘catch some rays’ and cool off with a refreshing swim.

No matter the number of people in your party, from a couple wanting some alone time to families and couples traveling together, you are sure to enjoy your stay at La Collina.

  • Guest Comments:

    June 2022 - I just wanted to thank you and your staff for all your help with our vacation! La Collina was absolutely perfect! My family loved it! The villa was extremely well stocked and convenient to Cruz Bay, but quiet and private. It was everything we were hoping for!
    We had an incredible time on St. John, it was a dream vacation for our little family. Shamal and Kay Kay on island went out of their way to assist us. Please pass on to their supervisors how friendly and helpful they were. They went above and beyond to assist us.
    We look forward to staying with Caribbean Villas again next time.

    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.
