Palm Villa has been newly renovated and is a fine example of Caribbean architecture, with the pool, deck furniture, exposed beam cathedral ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, screened louver windows and french doors and coral stone tile floors throughout the interior and exterior, create a comfortable and beautiful living environment.
Palm Villa was designed to maximize the views with the pool and sun deck as the centerpiece. As you walk down the stairs to the entrance of this beautiful home, you will catch a first glimpse of the panoramic views you are sure to enjoy throughout your stay. With the newly added covered deck, you will create many memories while dining together at the outside table. For those sunlovers, you are sure to enjoy the all day sun by the pool, but for those sensitive to the sun, there is a shaded area as well, where you can enjoy the outside, without having to worry.
The main house with the kitchen, living and master bedroom are to the left of the entrance and the two guest bedrooms, 1/2 bath and laundry room are on the right. The main house and bedrooms are air-conditioned but if you prefer enjoying the Caribbean tradewinds, the home is fully screened, so open your windows and let the warm tropical breezes envelop you. A feature we know our guests are sure to welcome are the solar panels with Tesla battery back up system. If the power goes out, the Tesla battery will kick in, so you will not be without power. This will be a welcomed amenity for those unexpected power outages.

Sometimes your view stretches all the way to the mountains of El Yunque and El Toro, 80 miles off in the distance in the rain forests of Puerto Rico.

For those looking for some cover, two 9 ft umbrellas were recently added and are bolted to the deck. If opened the umbrellas offer a peaceful and shaded place to sit and relax or for those looking for sun, the umbrellas can be easily closed and you can work on your golden tan; the choice is yours.

Jan. 17, 2021 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One of the best St John Rental Villa ever!
We have known Palm Villa for many years and we absolutely loved our stay at the "New Palm Villa" in January 2021, and we think you would too. Here’s why:
It’s has been completely rebuilt with many great improvements! It is very lovely with an upscale contemporary feel. Every room has been thoughtfully furnished for comfort and beauty creating a true sense of casual elegance. The villa has both open and covered decks providing plenty of space to enjoy the sun or the shade. The layout is very friendly for a family as well as a group of friends. It is very convenient to Cruz Bay for restaurants but there is also a fantastic kitchen and outdoor dining and grilling area.
It’s a beautiful villa with a beautiful view. Set in a mature tropical landscape, the villa is situated perfectly to capture the beautiful sunsets and island views. It was great fun to watch the coming and going of all the boats in and out of the harbors. A couple of evenings we heard Caribbean steel pan music drifting up from the harbor which was an unexpected treat. It was very close to a full moon which was magical on the beautiful Coral Stone deck.
It’s friendly. Everybody knows that St John is a friendly island. If you’re looking for a nice three bedroom villa in one of the best locations on St John, don’t hesitate.
- We had an awesome vacation! Thank you!
- Our stay on St John was wonderful! The villa and the view were beautiful!
- I have been meaning to write a review about my stay at Palm Villa this past winter. We had such a wonderful vacation and enjoyed the villa so much. We traveled with our older children and the house worked beautifully for us! Our must have was a sunset and from this villa they are just breathtaking! The home is quite spacious – the pool is in the center of the villa and then the main house and 2 of the bedrooms open off the pool deck. The master bedroom is a good size and is located off the left side of the villa. My 2 children loved the separation between the master bedroom and 2 guest bedrooms. They are old enough now that we did not find this to be a problem and they loved going for a late night swim, especially since the pool was right outside their doors!! The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked – What you see in the photos is what you get so when we walked in to the home upon arrival – we were very pleased….. We will definitely be returning to St John and Palm Villa will be our villa of choice!!
- Thank you for an amazing vacation! Palm Villa had everything we were looking for at a great price! This was our honeymoon and the home had the privacy, the pool and the sunsets we were looking for in a rental. It was a perfect setting to relax after planning our wedding! We want to thank your sales office and St John Office - from the beginning to the end we received excellent service! We will be back!!
Thank you for your interest in Palm Villa!
Our villa consultants have 30+ years of knowledge and we look forward to helping you find your perfect villa vacation!
