“Love it”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Perelandra is everything we thought it would be! It is one of the best places I have ever stayed. We loved the view, the landscaping, the accommodations and the pool! The pool was a fun place to relax after our hikes and beach visits. Comfy bed, nice kitchen. We think we want to come back again!

“Outstanding Villa with specaticular views!!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I couldn't wait to write this review! My husband, our 2 year old daughter and in laws just got back 2 days ago from Perelandra on the island of St John in the USVI and we are missing it already!!! After missing our flight we were just excited to be on the island but once we arrived at the villa we were THRILLED! This place is a hidden oasis! On top of a hill overlooking the gorgeous Cruz Bay and St Thomas in the distance we felt so relaxed and ready to enjoy! We were met by Colby from Cimmaron management company at the car barge ferry and he took us straight there. He was the most friendliest person and so eager to help us with anything and everything. (they even had a complimentary bag of goodies soda, snacks and RUM!! along with a jug of water to get us started) This villa was also EXTREMELY clean! Not 1 ant, spider, or any bug!!!!! My husband daughter and I stayed in the bedroom on the lower floor which worked out great. We had the king size bed and my daughter had a blow up mattress (of course she ended up in bed with us) which was fine because we had so much room. That king mattress was the MOST comfortable bed we have EVER slept on (we really would like the brand of that mattress because we are wanting to buy the same one now) The bedrooms had air conditioners which were so quiet you had no clue they were on. The bathrooms were beautiful! The walk in showers were huge and so relaxing, especially ours downstairs because it had a screened in skylight which was wonderful. You could hear the birds chirping and you felt one with nature. The beautiful pool was just the right size and temperature for our family. Great to cool off in or jump in after a day at the beach!! The abundance of iguana and little lizards was fantastic ( my mother in law was terrified but it was fantastic to be so close) I also loved that there was a humming bird feeder on the top deck, every morning with breakfast and coffee our little hummers would come visit and it was so peaceful. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need!!!! The grill came in handy, we grilled hot dogs and steaks that we picked up from Starfish Market which is about a 2 minute drive from the villa (so convenient) they have everything you could possibly need! Downtown Cruz Bay is maybe 5 minutes away and has great food, shopping ect. Our daughter had a fantastic time playing on the top deck and watching the birds and lizards. And being able to go from the living room to outside in 1 step! This villa is sensational and we cant wait to come back!!! Hopefully as a family of 4 next time!!!!!!! Thanks for everything!

What a wonderful review! Thank you! I just love when our gorgeous villa meets all the needs and wants of our guests. The view, the location and the villa itself is why we bought Perelandra. And we just keep on making it better. I haven't even seen our new dining area table and chairs or the new solar panels on our roof.
Your remark on our air conditioning made me laugh. When it was first installed I called the company because I was convinced it wasn't working because I could hear nothing! Imagine my chagrin when while I was talking the air was perfectly cooled.
I'm glad your family had a wonderful time. Please come back!

“Very nice home with great views”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Perlandra is a very nice property with great views of Cruise Bay and St Thomas. Having air conditioning in the 2 bedrooms was great for a July vacation. Appliances in great shape and very new. The deck, pool and screened in porch are very nice. We grilled out a few times and had very nice dinners on the deck watching the sunset.

“Incredible stay at Perelandra!”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife, another couple and I stayed at Perelandra for 1 week in June 2015. We are 2 couples who met on our honeymoon 5 years ago and have the same wedding anniversary. We wanted to meet up and celebrate together. We decided on staying in St. John and found Perelandra as a great villa option for us. We couldn't believe how perfect this place was!
The view and location are the best parts in a long list of great things about this villa. The unobstructed view of St. Thomas in the distance and Cruz Bay is perfect to wake up to and when winding down at night. The pool was also a great place to wind down after a long day of swimming at the beaches. We would make some drinks, turn on the stereo, and relax in the pool.
Perelandra was centrally located. It is only about a 3-5 minute drive down a steep hill and one main road to the center of Cruz Bay and the road that leads to the North Shore beaches. St. John's market and a gas station are both right at the bottom of the steep hill. Drive 1 minute in the opposite direction and you will reach Starfish Market, which has Sam and Jack's Deli upstairs (had the best deli sandwiches).
We were very impressed with how clean the villa was. No ants or pests finding their way in. All the dishes and pots were clean and ready to use. All the appliances were in great working shape. The grounds and condition of the house were beautiful. The washer and dryer were clean and very convenient.
Cimmaron Property management were very helpful. They were there to lead us to the villa when we go off the car barge. They showed us around the house, gave us the keys and recommended some restaurants, bars, and beaches. One night we called the concierge service to make reservations on the night of our anniversary. They ended up getting us the last available table that night.
I cannot say enough great things about our stay at Perelandra. We were very happy we chose to stay there, and recommend it to any small family or small groups of people looking for a relaxing and fun villa in St. John.

I am so happy to hear you all had such a great time! Thank you for this great review! When I hear how guests appreciate all we do to keep Perelandra beautiful, up to date, well stocked, sparkling clean and how our management company goes out of their way to help our guests, I know all the effort we all put in is well worth it.

Our villa is now solar powered so as well we are doing what we can to help our environment.

Perelandra was just what we needed. Beautiful, well located and well outfitted for our family of four. The view is incredible, the neighborhood is quiet but accessible to everything, and the accommodations are so comfortable. Thank you Linda and family for letting us share your beautiful home for a week. Wish it could have been longer and we will definitely be back

We try hard to make sure Perelandra is constantly updated and outfitted to insure our guests get "just what they need" from a vacation on St. John. Yes, the view and the sunsets are incredible, it's quiet and secluded but still a five minute drive to Cruz Bay and close to our beautiful National Park beaches. Those are some of the reasons we chose to make Perelandra ours. We are happy when our guests are happy. Many of them come back and we hope you will too.

“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.
