Over the Rainbow is coming back! This beautiful villa is accepting reservations as of Oct. 21, 2019.

Over the Rainbow is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath villa consisting of three connected buildings – a great room, master bedroom and two guest bedrooms – all of which are built in a semi circle around a terra cotta tiled garden courtyard that is ringed 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 either bedroom. The great room features 16′ x 8′ screened glass doors that open to an east facing lovely view and an intimate pool and sundeck. The pool is surrounded by tiled and wooden decks and a gazebo off the pool offers a shaded place to contemplate the peacefulness and beauty of this divine setting. A smaller deck off the master bedroom offers a view to the west over Fish Bay.

    • Caribbean Villas Comments:

      In the many years since we began offering Over the Rainbow, the serenity and superb privacy of this setting hasn't been compromised in the least. The house however, has changed, all for the better. Since new owners bought Over the Rainbow in 2007 they have made numerous improvements and it now looks the best it has in 20 years. 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 the master bedroom deck. 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.
