“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Best vacation ever. The villa (#5) exceeded all expectations. Beautiful furnishings, great layout, awesome kitchen and great views. The villa also provided beach chairs, cooler and beach towels. The rental company could not have been better from the first to last email. The greeter (Eric) who met us at the car barge was very pleasant and helpful. The bowl of deli meat and salads was a really nice touch.

Location was perfect...a short ten minute walk into Cruz Bay for restaurants and bars. We had a rental and explored the island and its beaches daily.

I cant say enough about how nice St John is.

Only negatives were the rosters and barking dogs.

We stayed in PT #6 which is on the top floor and the view was very good. I think only the top floors (#3 and #6) have the views and the vaulted ceilings. The location was great because we were able to walk to the restaurants at night. We rented a car to drive to the beaches and hking trails. Palm Terrace was new and clean everything seemed to work except the wifi. The place was clean and the loghts were on when we arrived. The only way it could have been better is if they had a rum punch waiting for us.

Room Tip: Top floors are best by far

Just got back from staying at the Palm Terrace Villas for a friends wedding in St.John. The condo was walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops. It had a nice view of the bay and a not so nice view of a muck filled lake. The pool at the condo was very small and had no view but it was nice to have on a drizzly day that tanked our beach options. We stayed in villa 5. Rooms were broken down as such: king(w/view), two doubles and two singles. Each of the 3 rooms had their own bathrooms. Kitchen was well equipped and opened up to the living room. Condo also had linens, beach chairs, towels and a cooler. If you get a chance walk to the Beach Bar & look for Noah's Dinghy Rentals. The dinghy was by far the best way to see the island! We would stop and snorkel at all of the beaches they recommended, so beautiful!

We stayed at Palm Terrace #2 (“Tropical Blessings”) in December 2011 and loved it! So close to Cruz Bay (10-minute walk), but still a quiet and charming neighborhood. Just a few minutes’ walk down the lane is Frank Bay Beach, which has some pretty decent snorkeling. This place is outfitted to a T – plush, comfortable furnishings, a spacious kitchen with everything you need to cook and eat in (really helps the vacation budget!), a “book nook” with an extensive collection of best-sellers, well-appointed bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite, and a washer and dryer. The great room has two sets of large sliding doors onto the deck with beautiful ocean views. Perfect for cocktails while you watch the sun set! A modern, pristine luxury condominium with St. John charm – what a great combo!

Stayed here in May 2009 for my wedding.
Beautiful villas. Very quiet. Walk to town. Pool is small but who cares. Perfect for a dip.

Rooms are cozy and AC works great. Granite and stainless kitchens.
Upper Villas have a view out to salt pond and harbor.

Highly recommended.

This was are second time renting at the Palm Terrace. Two years ago we rented the 4-unit. -It's huge but lacks the view of units 4 and 5. We had a group of up to 15 people with people coming and going over a three week period. The location on the island was great. It was easy for the divers to walk to Low Key's dive boats in the morning and for others to stroll in and out of town at all hours. We rented a 7-passenger jeep but for the most part took the taxis to the terrific beaches. This allowed everyone to come and go as they wanted. We ate out a lot of dinners but did use the grill a few times to cook fish and steaks. The Starfish Market was five minutes away. It was a great vacation for our extended family. Destination Saint John's (the property manager) came through for us one night when we locked the keys in one unit. They were the nicest people and came in open the door at after 10 PM in a few minutes. We look forward to being back here again.

wow... that describes it all. Palm Terrace Villa is one of the best kept secrets on the wole island. we stayed in unit 2 which was on the second floor. the whole unit was clean and everything was brand new. the proximity to Cruz bay was good considering how much a pain it is to try and park down there. we walked to dinner every night except one. (we decided to just drive to Morgan's Mango because Mongoose Junction has plenty of parking and it was a little far.) the pool is small but was clean and maintained and perfectly fine for a dip after a beach day. the PTV is one of the best value for a room i have ever had, and the best room i have ever had. i would go back to st. john in a heartbeat but i would not look to stay anywhere besides the Palm Terrace villas.

  • Liked — How new the whole place was.
  • Disliked — we were told that power occasionally goes out, which we did not expercience but would have been annoying if it had happened
