Our clients trust our villa experience because we have been there.
Built in 2008, the VI Friendship Villa serves as the second home to longtime visitors to the United States Virgin Islands who finally decided on creating their own little "slice of heaven" in paradise. Designed from a unique and nautical perspective, VI Friendship Villa offers a layout that provides both privacy and opportunities to gather together, from its well-placed elegant (and equally-sized) bedrooms, to a generous sandy bulkhead "beach" for sunning, playing... or, contemplating under the stars.
Each air-conditioned bedroom has its own private balcony with a lovely waterfront view of pleasure boats at Great Cruz Bay intimate harbor, the pool and hot tub, and to the sea, with the Westin Resort's white sand beach in the near distance.
A complete gymnasium occupies the uppermost portion of VI Friendship Villa. Encased in glass on 3 sides, this room is fully air-conditioned, with stunning views of the surrounding area. Between sets, step out onto the magnificent patio to fill your lungs with fresh air, absorb the sun's rays, and enjoy the ocean breezes.
From here, stairs lead downwards to a split level Great Room on the Main Level. Separating east and west wings is a state of the art gourmet kitchen with top appliances, granite counters and a roomy pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen are a powder room, and an office nook complete with DSL line, computer, multifunction printer, and, of course, a view to Great Cruz Bay. Wi-Fi signal is available to those with laptops and devices as well.
Each wing hosts 2 bedrooms which are equal in size, for a total of 4 bedrooms here. Convenient amenities in each include 32" flat-screen satellite TVs, coffeemakers, and verandahs with ocean views. In the east wing are the blue, and blue-and-white suites; the west wing's suites are sage and white-and-gold.
Four steps down from the kitchen is the dining space with a sturdy trestle dining table suitable for 10, plus a granite counter and 4 stools for quick meals and chats over cocktails. The living room sitting area (with 46” television) adjoins across a tiled expanse, and contains a DVD player and Surround Sound system to carry musical enjoyment throughout the Great Room and pool deck areas.
VI Friendship Villa is an objet d’art writ large: Stainless steel yacht riggings create functional balustrades in both interior and exterior; well-placed balconies and windows offer the continuous tableau of sky and ocean. Utterly modern and built to welcome the Caribbean sunshine, VI Friendship Villa provides rows of windows that let in abundant light, accenting the spaces within. Modern furnishings, travertine flooring, and sweeping open rafter ceilings, all uncrowded, comfortable, and most accommodating. Delightful extras include a home office (with computer and DSL line), a full gym with panoramic views, A/C and satellite TV, an air-conditioned game room on the lower level, with ping-pong, billiards and game tables.
Through sliding French doors, you will access the sandy bulkhead beach outfitted with chaises and a fire brazier for cheerful evening get-togethers where you'll recount the day's adventures or share stories in the moonlight. The centerpiece of this customized hardscape is the infinity-edged pool with its integrated hot tub - an outdoor wet bar, gas grill with rotisserie and 6-foot dining table with umbrella covering are close by for al fresco meals, and a commercial blender and commercial ice maker will ensure that cool refreshment is always but moments away! Continue down a quick flight of stairs for the bulkhead sand "beach” surrounded by towering palms.
You’ll find two more queen bedrooms in a lower level (by way of an interior staircase). These air-conditioned suites are separated to afford good privacy, and each has its own coffeemaker, TV and balcony. The laundry room and game room are also on this level - included is a convenient half-bath.
Conceived and built as a dream getaway, VI Friendship Villa continues to provide repeat renters and new arrivals with exceptional creature comforts, modern amenities and media, and the natural advantage of its waterfront location. It’s convenient to dining, shopping, night life, access to marine adventures, the USVI National Park trails and beaches, and the Westin Resort, yet private and filled with its own unique array of attractions - you may never want to leave!

"The villa was outstanding! It suited the needs of our family of 11 perfectly. It was truly paradise - the villa open to the air all day and night, beautiful beaches, fantastic view, well appointed kitchen, maid service mid week." Debbie G.
"Villa 14 couldn't have been more perfect for our group of 12 people. The house was clean and exactly like the pictures. It was large enough for everyone to be together and spacious enough for people to go to separate areas. We all absolutely loved the villa and spent most of our time there. When we had any issues (which were very minimal), we would call the number left for us and someone would be out immediately to fix the problems. Very friendly people." Kelly S.
"Villa 14 was even more spectacular than the pictures! Very spacious, so everyone had plenty of room for privacy. A large, welcoming common area connected directly to the pool area with spectacular views of the bay and the ocean. Many, many hours were spent in the infinity pool and the hot tub. We had a great time waving to the boats going in and out of the harbor. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the plates, pots, pans, glasses, flatware, and appliances that anyone would need. The giant folding doors that opened on and off of the pool area allowed the cooling breezes to cool the living. dinning and kitchen. Only half of us used the air conditioning in the bedrooms because the breeze cooled the house so nicely. The greeter was at the ferry dock to meet us and drove us to get our rented jeep and then on to the house for the check out tour. We couldn't have been happier and would recommend this villa to anyone!" Cathy H.
"The group had a fabulous trip that exceeded our very high expectations." Melissa H.
"Villa 14 was better than we could have hoped for. The villa offered spectacular views, first rate accommodations, all of which was very well maintained. Kudos to the property management firm." Denny H.
"The Villa was absolutely perfect for 6 couples! We did not even want to leave the house." Tammy C.
"We all enjoyed staying in St. John. We liked that the house was oriented towards the bay and that there was a lot of outside space to relax and eat. The rooms were a nice size and the house was a perfect place to host several of our family members. We also enjoyed using the exercise room upstairs." Sheila C.
