Tennis Villa plus Cottage actually consists of two separate villas. They can be rented together as a 7 bedroom villa or they can be rented separately as a 4 bedroom main house and a 3 bedroom cottage. Each property has its own private entrance but there is also a connecting walkway between the 2 properties. The spacious main house, Tennis Villa, comfortably accommodates up to 8 persons and includes a tennis court and a 43 foot pool. Completed in 1995, the one-story custom design is child friendly, spacious and comfortable. Only a few St. John villas combine this much space and privacy with such easy access to so many activities and amenities. Tennis Villa consists of a 3 bedroom/3 bath main house plus a 1 bedroom/1 bath detached pool house. The main house contains a truly gourmet kitchen plus the living and dining areas, while the pool house overlooks the all weather surface tennis court. The arched doorways of the living area of the great house flow into a large garden courtyard that encircles a 43- foot pool. The south-facing courtyard gets all day sun and affords privacy and sunset views. The design of Tennis Cottage is private, tropical and comfortable.
The Cottage consists of a main house and a guest house. The main house contains the living/dining and kitchen areas, plus a romantic master bedroom and bath. A large covered deck runs along the upper length of the main house and provides an excellent place to relax and enjoy the scenic views and magical Caribbean nights. The second bedroom/bath is private and cozy and is located in the guesthouse behind the main house. The third bedroom/bath is on the lower level of the main house and opens to the 40 foot pool and large sundeck.

Tennis Villa is located in Great Cruz Bay in a very convenient and appealing setting. It’s an exceptional spot that enjoys excellent privacy and peace and quiet, and yet it’s a 3-4 minute walk to a white sand beach with swimming and boating in calm Caribbean waters at the Westin Resort. For dining options, it’s an easy walk to a beach side restaurant/bar under swaying palms at the Westin or it’s a 5 minute drive to the restaurants in Cruz Bay. Tennis Villa sits on a large lot on the peninsula that separates Great Cruz Bay Harbor from Chocolate Hole Harbor, with picturesque views of both harbors. Both Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole Harbor are well-established and desirable neighborhoods that consist of expensive residential villas.
Tennis Cottage overlooks Chocolate Hole Harbor with south facing sunny and scenic views of the harbor and the Caribbean Sea. Although the Cottage is the neighbor of Tennis Villa, both villas are private and hidden from view from each other. Each villa has a separate, private driveway and parking area, but a path connects the two villas and insures an easy walk from one house to the other.
Chocolate Hole is a well-established, quiet and convenient neighborhood that consists of high-priced residential villas. Groceries at Starfish Market are a 4-5 minute drive and the many restaurants and shops of Cruz Bay are an easy 7-minute drive.

Tennis Villa offers an excellent villa amenities and activities package. This is one of the only rental villas on St. John that includes a private tennis court, and the in-house amenities also include a 43 foot pool, a/c in all bedrooms and a regulation pool table overlooking Great Cruz Bay. Even without its excellent amenities, Tennis Villa would rank as a very appealing villa in an upscale location, for you are an easy walk to boating activities, a white sand beach with a beach bar, restaurants and a spa. With its superb combination of spaciousness and amenities, Tennis Villa earns a rating as a very enjoyable vacation home, especially for tennis players. This house has something for everybody; it's a genuine crowd pleaser and is ideal for families and couples.
Tennis Cottage has always been a charming, attractive and comfortable villa, but in 2007 its appeal was significantly enhanced with the addition of a 40 foot pool, a 60 foot sundeck, more a/c, wireless DSL and an I Pod dock. Tennis Cottage is now, also, a very well equipped vacation home. Tennis Cottage also enjoys a favorable location in a private, quiet and convenient neighborhood with scenic water views. By itself, this is an easy to recommend, 3-bedroom villa with an oversized pool and sundeck. But what really distinguishes the Cottage is that it can be rented in combination with Tennis Villa, and you thereby gain access to the finest villa amenities and activities package on St. John. Tennis Villa's amenities include; a private tennis and basketball court, a 43 foot pool, a regulation pool table, a horseshoe pit and a piano. The Cottage also has a romantic essence that makes it a great spot for honeymooners, lovers and families. Better yet, rent the Cottage and the great house next door and bring the wedding party, lots of friends or the extended family.
•Tennis Cottage has a resident outdoor cat that visits the property.
- Guest Comments:
My family recently stayed at tennis villa for a family reunion. This villas is perfect for a large group and sleeps up to 14 with the cottage. We spent the majority of our time at the villa. The spaciousness and comfort allowed us to relax, play tennis, a game of pool, swim and venture into town for dinner. I strongly recommend tennis villa. Everything from booking to our arrival to our last day was exceptional. We will return.
