Calypso is a wonderful villa with a totally fabulous pool and setting!
The welcoming entrance provide easy access from paved parking through lush tropical landscaping
Glorious orchids and other tropical plants bloom by the front door!
The nickname for this tropical plant growing out front is 'lobster claws'!
And you enter a charming getaway with terrific views and all the amenities.
Step into a comfortable, open concept living room
with its own bit of nautical character - an amazing model sail boat.
You're immediately drawn to the views out toward Chocolate Hole Bay and the Sound.
You step out to the large covered deck with comfortable seating and endless views.
This view from the deck perfectly frames Maria Bluff across the Bay, with St. Thomas off to the west.
Our big pool with the big hot tub makes you long for a poolside day in the sun.
And there's a chaise lounge for each person.
Here's a view of the pool and the villa in the quiet of the end of a great day.
A screened porch overlooks the pool and the Bay providing another area to sit!
Or a place for 4 to 6 to eat al fresco -- again with wonderful views.
If you prefer to eat inside, we have a spacious table for 6 -- again with views!
Our open concept kitchen has all the amenities and is fully stocked for easy meal preparation
The living area is spacious and designed for comfort.
The master bedroom is on the top level...spacious, open to the deck, charming -- with a king bed.
Each of the 3 bedrooms opens out to a large, covered deck - for breezes and views.
The en suite master bathroom has a large walk in shower, a 2-sink vanity, and Caribbean decor.
This view from across the Bay shows the villa has two levels and great privacy.
The en suite bathroom for the 2nd bedroom also features a walk in shower and double vanity
The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms can each be made up as king or twin beds -- very flexible.
As this 3rd bathroom -- also en suite -- shows, it's almost like showering outside but in privacy!
Calypso provides luxury while you enjoy St. John -- such as our tree and sun-loving iguanas.
And the banaquits that come to the deck for a sip of sugar water from a saucer.
Calypso is a place for relaxing and reveling in the beauty of the island.
Enjoying the days exploring the beaches. And the evening sunsets.
Did we mention the sunsets?
Come spend time with friends, family, or just your best friend.
Calypso del Sol is waiting for you.
We'd love to have you!

Calypso del Sol's best feature is the glorious, endless water views from the pool deck and the large, covered porches, with inviting views of Chocolate Hole and gorgeous sunsets. You can relax around the large pool -- our second best feature -- or take a short walk to Chocolate Hole Beach or over the hill to Hart Bay. The house is beautifully appointed to offer every comfort in a close-in but private location, while making the most of its Caribbean setting. It has the feeling of a very private hideaway. <BR><BR>The living room is furnished with traditional Caribbean furniture. With vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tiled floors, and Caribbean art, Calypso has an inviting interior. For your entertainment, a TV/VCR/DVD, cable, and a stereo with a CD player are provided. (And, yes, we have WiFi, although you really should not w... Read more

Myself, my fiancee, and two friends recently traveled to St. John for a wedding and stayed at Calypso. We found the house to be absolutely perfect for our vacation. The place is clean, well kept, and a very accommodating host. It is in a very good location, not too far from town, but also not too close. You can spend...

Management response:

We are so pleased that Calypso worked so perfectly for Chris and friends! The fact that the villa is in a neighborhood where you have privacy plus a great place to take walks (lots of St John roads are too narrow or busy for that) to enjoy the scenery is one of its special features. On a clear day, you...

Calypso Del Sol is designed around the breathtaking views of St. John, and the ocean currents that surround St. John and St. Thomas. Each room porch and pool side location provides an unobstructed view of the bay front, the ocean, hillsides of St. John and in the distance St. Thomas. The ocean side of well appointed kitchen, living room ,...

Management response:

So glad that you enjoyed Calypso! And what's not to like about wonderful St John? Your poetic description makes US want to be there more often. (smile) We hope to see you again soon -- try us in the Fall when the water is warmer and the beaches even less crowded!

We have been vacationing in STJ for 12 years and I have written several reviews on island homes. The management company moved us to Calypso del Sol when the house we were staying in experienced a problem with the pool, so we appreciated that Nancy & Crystal took care of us! Calypso del Sol is a wonderful home located in...

Management response:

So grateful that these guests were understanding about moving to Calypso del Sol when we had a pool problem at our other villa! We always ask guests about the ages of their children when we rent the villa, but of course this was an unexpected change so we didn't have that opportunity. One treat for youngsters at our Calypso villa...
