  • For 24 years we’ve been telling our guests that there are very few villas that offer a sunrise/sunset view, plus unspoiled views into the national park, and exceptional privacy and peace and quiet. Over the Rainbow still delivers all three and remains a rare vacation treasure.

Over the Rainbow was remodeled in 2018/19 and is now an alluring 3-bedroom villa that remains exceptionally peaceful, private and scenic. Over the Rainbow consists of three connected buildings – a great room and two bedrooms on the ground level with a third bedroom on the upper level. The buildings are built in a u shaped design with a tiled garden courtyard and dining area in the middle, bordered by native stone walls. You park below the villa and ascend a stone stairway up to the courtyard, where you enter the great room or any of the 3 a/c bedrooms. The great room features 16′ x 8′ screened glass doors that open to an intimate pool, sundeck and gazebo, all with spectacular views of the south coast of the National Park. Past guests frequently tell us that they’re amazed by the peacefulness and beauty of this divine setting. The two new (2019) equally sized master bedrooms/baths are in a 2-story building with interior stairs. Both of these bedrooms have private west facing decks that capture afternoon sun and memorable sunsets, while the upper bedroom has a second deck with east facing sunrise views.

    • Caribbean Villas Comments:

      We have been offering Over the Rainbow since it was built more than 25 years ago, and the serenity and superb privacy of this setting hasn't been compromised in the least. In 2018/19 Over the Rainbow was remodeled into a 3-bedroom villa and it now looks and lives the best it has since it was first built. If you are looking for good hiking, the Reef Bay area has several trails available. Reef Bay Beach is less than a 1 mile hike and except for a handful of those who know St. John's secret beaches, Reef Bay is usually deserted. The Petroglyphs (the famous rock carvings of unknown origin), Lameshure Bay, and Bordeaux Mountain (St. John's highest mountain with spectacular down-island views) are a 1-2 mile hike. This is an excellent villa for honeymooners, couples, eco-tourists or anyone looking to relax and unwind in a splendidly peaceful and naturalist setting. From the pool deck, gaze at the brilliant sunrise over Reef Bay, or a fiery sunset glow over Fish Bay from both the lower or upper master bedroom decks. With almost no vehicular traffic in this neighborhood and great natural beauty, this villa is highly recommended for those who want to get away from it all in a beautiful, unspoiled setting, which also has a 40" flat screen TV/DVD, wireless internet and iPod connections – the best of both worlds.

      - We had a wonderful time at Over the Rainbow Nov 15-22. It was difficult to leave. This was our 3rd trip to St John, and also booking through your agency. Every one of our visits was extremely enjoyable and the relationship with Caribbean Villas has been consistently professional and amiable. We plan to be back and of course will be calling you once again. The thing I most like about CVRM is the way you present the villas on your web site. I can trust that we are going to rent a clean villa that is among the best that can be rented in the various price ranges offered. You rent quality properties and I can trust your candid guidance when choosing the villa. OTR was no exception. Hats off to the owners for the detail they provided in the documentation and equipping of their beautiful home. Dawn and I loved it the moment we walked in. I know this is a business, but you can tell they put love and effort in their home. Please pass my comments along to them--especially labeling the lighting switches and telephone. The interior and exterior lighting was very well done and provided a nice ambiance.
      - We absolutely LOVED Over the Rainbow...perfect for 2 couples...St John is a beautiful place!
      - Thank you SO much, we had a wonderful time! Over the Rainbow proved to be a perfect spot for us! We will be back!!
      - We had a wonderful time at Over the Rainbow! The view was fantastic, the weather was great. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back!!
      - We just wanted to send you a quick note saying how wonderful Over The Rainbow was - it was so beautiful and tranquil. We absolutely loved it! We almost didn't want to explore the island because we thought the house was so perfect (though we did finally make it over to the beaches one day).
      - I wanted to take a couple of minutes to compliment you on how well everything went for us on our vacation. The whole process from beginning to end seemed almost too good to be true! Your company did a great job handling all the arrangements. We were delighted with the villa! It always makes me nervous to book a house “sight unseen” but Over the Rainbow was all that it was advertised to be! It was a great experience all around. Great service!
      - Just wanted to say the Villa was beautiful and your staff on the island was very helpful. The man we met who showed us the way to the Villa on the first day (Jim) was SO NICE. He even leant us some baby toys from his personal home. We returned the toys but never got a chance to say thank you. Please pass along our thanks. We will definately use you on our return trip in the future. It was so beautiful!!
      - My girlfriend and I stayed in Over The Rainbow Dec. 30, 2012-Jan. 6, 2013, and we had the best time there. The villa was AWESOME, location was very private and quiet, and Jim/Terri (our greeters) were the best and very helpful. We are already planning our next trip, and we are planning to maybe buy some property on St. John. We just wanted you all to know how much we enjoyed our trip and villa. Have a good day and Happy New Year!
      - Hello to the great staff at Caribbean Villas, I want to thank you all for our vacation at "Over the Rainbow". We found your business and communications to be first class. Our island greeteers Jim and Terry were very helpful and offered many suggestions on what to do on the island. Our Jeep was reliable and clean. The owners of the villa have done a super job of making the place friendly and comfortable. The plantings around the property and the pool were top notch. The Reef Bay view was spectacular. We slept in the Fish Bay room, the room was airy and comfortable. Never got tired of looking at all the animal life visiting the villa, the bananaquits and hummingbirds especially. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.
