    Protected by a National Park, St. John is a Caribbean paradise in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) with miles of undeveloped land and noted for its powder-soft white sand beaches on the north shore. Visitors to St. John enjoy hiking, swimming, snorkeling and diving by day, then head down to Cruz Bay where colorful shops, lively bars, and delicious restaurants light up the night.

    St. John is a quick 20-minute ferry ride from St. Thomas, no passport is required, and there are plenty of flight options to St. Thomas. While ease of travel accentuates our love for St. John, the incredible views and small island community feel keeps us coming back year-after-year. 

    Our friends at have collected a list of their favorite villas. Ideal for couples, families, and friends traveling together, each villa offers space, seclusion, and easy access to attractions on St. John.
