What makes this Villa unique
The Hideaway came through Irma and Maria...bruised but strong! We have Power and a new stove and windows and shutters are to be made new by April. Until then, all it working and the screening over some openings lets wonderful sea breezes in and keeps mosquitos out! Internet is on it's way and TV have an extensive library of movies to entertain in the evenings. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 203 807 1971 Come enjoy this healing island....the beaches are just as beautiful as ever and the trails are all cleared!

Beautiful property on the less-populated East End. Spacious home with perfect views. We enjoyed the secluded rocky beach with kayaks and paddle boards, and the covered outdoor area with plunge pool. We explored several local beaches (Hansen Bay, Trunk Bay and Hawksnest) to snorkel and hike. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to cook every meal. We ate one night at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay (great burgers!) We also traveled by ferry one day to St. Thomas to zip-line at Tree Limin Extreme (thrilling and awesome views- recommended!) and dine/shop.
If you are inexperienced with driving on the island, we suggest arriving when there is still enough daylight to drive to the East End from Cruz bay - at least 45 minutes. We enjoyed the seeing all the wildlife- beautiful birds, geckos and lizards. We encountered the local donkeys several times, including the final morning of our stay waking up to find them munching grass in the back yard! Great vacation- would definitely return!
Best house ever!
Amazing view and landscaping in a beautiful and well appointed home! So much fun with toys provided for kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling!
The 'Hideaway' is simply stunning! From it's multiple sun decks with breath taking views, to the outdoor dining and pool, and well equipped kitchen, this house has it all. This home is located away from all the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay. It's a sanctuary to recharge your body and soul. Our family loved spending the days on the beach, exploring the cove on the kayaks and SUP's. We saw sea turtles, rays, coral and lots of fish right here. The shells were plentiful and fun treasures to find on our morning walks. We loved to retire to the outdoor lounge area and swim while watching the sun go down. The wild rooster announced the sun coming up daily, he was amusing! Traveling to the other beaches was easy. There are two markets and a handful of tasty restaurants right in Coral Bay, so no need to venture into town (unless you run short on gas!). Christine and Athena were both helpful and pleasant. Stop your search - this is the one!!
Amazing and perfect in every way!
There are not enough words to describe how much we loved our stay at this villa! It is even more beautiful than the photos online show. And it was the perfect home for our family of 5 to spread out, relax, and enjoy the most amazing view of the beautiful Caribbean waters. We had so much fun exploring St John and the incredible beaches but our most precious times were spent back at this incredible home. We spent time in the relaxing pool, and walked down the private path to the beach to enjoy the excellent snorkeling, paddle boards and kayaks. And we loved to spend the early evenings in the lounge chairs at the beach, reading and talking and watching the beautiful sunset sparkling over the water. Most evenings we stayed at the house and grilled out or cooked meals in the very well-equipped kitchen that had everything we needed. After dinners we often played games from the great selection or went for an evening swim in the pool, looking out at the water and enjoying the star-filled sky. It was an amazing week showing our kids St.John where we had honeymooned years ago, and this was the perfect home to enjoy it all. We even renewed our vows with just our family down at the private beach. The owners were very helpful before we arrived and everything was so clean and just as described. We will never forget this week and we would definitely want to stay here again next time we return to our favorite island.
We are delighted to see that you "got it"! Your days mirrored how we too enjoy this slice of heaven! Please return any time!
Perfect Villa for Our Family Vacation
Our first impression of The Hideaway was "this place is a home run!" It looked really nice in the photos but was even more beautiful than we expected. As we looked closer we began to notice how absolutely clean this home was. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO homes, and The Hideaway was without question CLEANEST HOME WE HAVE EVER RENTED. We used the guest suite as the master and the teenagers settled in the main part of the house. The pool and deck area between the two living areas was the show stopper. The kitchen was very well equipped and made our eat-in meal prep easy. There was a short path to a private beach (only saw 3-4 people all week around 300 yards away) area where we spent most of our days. The use of the beach chairs, kayaks and snorkel gear was very much appreciated. We snorkeled all over St. John and parts of the BVI, and one of the best areas was along the left side of the private beach. We have stayed on St. John twice and really enjoy the solitude and slower pace the East End offers. While the home is away from the crowds, it only takes about 10 minutes to get to Coral Bay for groceries, dining, etc. We also appreciated how beautifully the property had been landscaped. The owners and the local caretakers were very responsive and receptive to our needs.
Thanks so much for your review! We are thrilled that you "get it"! Makes me want to return sooner than planned to see this paradise from your prospective! Please come enjoy it whenever you can get away! By the way, we almost made the guest suite our master but for the bidet already installed in the main house master bathroom!
The Hideaway was absolutely perfect for our family.
Christine and Gary have done a great job with this vacation home and were exceptional hosts.
We loved the location. It is on the quiet side of the island. It has it's own secluded beach and the snorkeling was great. There were beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks available. Although we did do dome hiking and exploring and enjoyed that, we all agreed that the best experience was right at the Hideaway.
There is a great view from the large and well equipped deck. We spent most of the time outside in perfect weather. In the evenings we took advantage of the comfortable living room, wifi, and large catalog of movies.
There are decent restaurants nearby but we found that by buying groceries the first day in Cruz Bay and supplementing as needed from the store in Coral Bay we were mostly able to eat in using the well equipped kitchen.
The home was clean and everything was in good repair.
This was one of the most relaxing and easy vacations that my family can remember. When we return to St. John we will definitely return to the Hideaway.
