Calypso Cove or Treasure Ridge Villa in St. John
Has anyone stayed in either of these villas? Review?
Which one would you pick?

I personally look for a villa that sits up high with a great deck and a view. My husband prefers a larger pool, so that limits us a bit. When you are up on the hillside, the breezes seem to chase the noseeums away--we used the pool in the late afternoon and evening. We beached it during the day.

Have you looked at the reviews on They have a great St. John forum and many villa reviews. There is an 2004 review for Treasure Ridge.

We have rented through Destination St. John. They were good to work with. have you asked them for their recommendation?

It is a beautiful villa in Coral Bay, with spectacular views, gorgeous pool, fabulous decor and near excellent beaches.

We have friends that live a few streets away. On a visit to our friends in 2006, we were out walking one morning and happened to see the owners of the villa out in the drive. We started talking to them and they invited us in to see their villa. They took such pride in it and rightfully so. It was breathtaking -from the views, to how nicely it was decorated [comfortable, but not overly so].

Since then our friends have gotten to know the villa owners. We were just back to visit our friends and we love Coral Bay as a place to relax, unwind, kickback, explore and simply have a wonderful trip.

Check the villa out, I think you would love it.
