“Wonderful Villa with Wonderful Owners and Management”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

After spending 9 nights at Perelandra with our 9 year old twin daughters, my wife and I absolutely enjoyed every second of our trip to St. John and our accommodations at Perelandra.
The pool was perfect for the 4 of us. This villa actually was the perfect size for our family of four and I can see where two couple would be happy staying here as well. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were well maintained, stocked, private and nicely designed and appointed.
Linda (owner) and Cimmaron (mgmt. company) were very helpful for us first timers on the island.
I've read here on TripAdvisor where some folks didn't like the fact that there is no air conditioning in the living / kitchen area. While this might trouble some people, we had no issue with it whatsoever. (and we were there in June!) It's a tropical environment on St. John so we knew what kind of weather to expect. Any heating up in the afternoons could be lessened by closing the storm blinds while out at the beaches. When we would return in the afternoons / evenings the nice, cool pool helped refresh us in the late evenings.
There are some of the most beautiful views from that wonderful deck and balcony. (where we spent most of our time at the villa)
We played games in the screened in porch a couple of evenings as well.
Zero complaints from us on this villa.
Thanks to Linda and Cimmaron for everything!

Sound like you had a wonderful vacation on St. John. I'm so glad that we and Cimmaron helped make it so. You are right. The setup of the two bedrooms make it perfect for a family of four, two couples or even the two single women I have coming soon. Perelandra is also popular with honeymoon couples. We've hosted many. Thank you for a great, informative review. Your family is welcome back anytime.

“Beautiful house, awesome location, amazing view!”

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Perelandra and can't say enough positive things about the house, the location, the owner and the management company. This was our first time to St. John so we had no idea how to chose the perfect place to stay - but Perelandra was definitely it! The house is clean and homey with an AMAZING view and a great little pool for cooling off or hanging out. My six year old son spent a TON of time in that pool and loved it. The house has a very secluded feel, as it sits nestled into the hillside, and has with the most incredible view of Cruz Bay, St. Thomas and other islands. It is well-stocked with all you need for picnics on the beach and hanging out at the pool (plus the sunburn you'll inevitably get:)). The location is so great because you are two minutes from the Star Market (and liquor store) and three minutes from "downtown" Cruz Bay + the road that takes you to all the beautiful North Shore beaches. Finally, the management company is very attentive and the owner, Linda, was very patient with my MANY emails before the trip asking questions about the house, the island, etc. St. John is a beautiful island with tons to do - we went to the beach and snorkled almost every day and spent a ton of time in our little pool and admiring the view from our porch. My six year old son did NOT want to leave. Perelandra is a great spot!

“Breathtaking View, Excellent Location, Very well Maintained Villa!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was out 2nd visit to Perelanda. The first was 10 years ago for our honeymoon and this time we went back with our children, it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The villa is well maintained, clean and updated, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals (though we used the grill most nights to take full advantage of the view!) We loved our time in St.John and would definitely go back to Perelandra.

“Spectacular Villa with Great Views”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was our second trip to St John. If we were to return, we would certainly stay at Perelandra. Perelandra is a beautiful villa. The villa is very well maintained and it is very close to town. The view of St Thomas from the back porch area is equally beautiful in the morning as in the evening. The owner has given great thought to equipping the villa. The kitchen has a new stainless steel refrigerator and fully equipped kitchen. We cooked some meals in and always were able to find what we needed. The screened in porch is great for the evening when the bugs are out. The ceiling fan in it helps it stay comfortable. Whether you are planning to spend the day at the beach or a day at the pool you have what you need to enjoy the day. Beach supplies included several nice beach chairs, two sizes of coolers, umbrellas, and beach blanket and beach towels. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool area after a day at the beach. The pool area has two lounge chairs as well as a couple upright chairs and small tables around it. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and are air conditioned which was great given the heat in July. Our favorite beach was Maho so be sure to check it out. A little further to drive but good snorkeling and nice white beach. Our family would highly recommend this villa and booking directly with the owner.

We are so glad Perelandra met all your needs. We love it and enjoy sharing it with guests like you. It's lots of fun to watch the hummingbirds, bananaquits, iguanas while sitting on the deck with coffee or a cocktail in hand.

Recently stayed 9 nights at Perelandra, great Cruz Bay location..very easy to get to. Spotless villa! It's the perfect size for one or two couples, well stocked kitchen, all the beach chairs and towels you would need, WIFI, nice size bathrooms, sun deck and pool...the list goes on. Upper deck is very spacious and the views are to die for! I have stayed at about 8 villas on the Island and this is one of the best ones. The owner Linda Gallagher was great to deal with when booking the villa and Cimmaron took care of everything else while we were there. I would definitely stay there again!
