We stayed at Villa Serenity at Francis Bay in 2005. We loved the location and the view was outstanding. We walked to Francis Bay most days with our two grandchildren, ages 3 & 5, but Grandpa would drive the Jeep down with all our "stuff", coolers, chairs, and snorkel gear. If you travel light, walking is nice. Early one morning there were young deer on the beach.

We rented Villa Serenity in 2004 or 2005. I liked it. If you are looking for a modern villa with an outdoor pool, sat. TV and so on, keep looking.

If you are looking for a very nice, well kept villa within walking distance to one of the best beaches on St John, you have found it. The only thing that bothered us was the bedrooms both had window AC units that were noisy and on their last legs. Hopefully they have been replaced by now, you should ask.

The porch is to die for. It wraps around three sides of the house, there is always some part in the shade. There was a hammock that we layed on at night and watched the shooting stars.

The walk is easy to Francis Bay beach however we brought so much stuff with us, we took the jeep. Never a parking problem off season.

Property manager at the time was Terry, she was great!

Enjoy!

Our friends stayed at Villa Serenity in May '07 (we were there too, but actually stayed at a condo). We spent alot of time at Villa Serenity with them though. Our friends really liked it, and I highly recommend it as well. It is a bit of a drive into town, but the villa itself is so peaceful and secluded! Amazing views too! It was very clean and nice. I would definitely stay there if I went back to St John (hopefully some day!)

Oh, and yes, there is one beach (Francis Bay) that is an easy walk.
