Brian was on the property to meet us and helped orient us around the unit and the property. He was gregarious and friendly in addition to being knowledgeable about the sites and beaches to visit on St. John. The grill could use an overhaul or replacement. It was a good size grill but we had difficulty lighting it. The salty...

My wife and stayed 4 nights at the Serendip at the beginning of May. We have been there multiple times and have found that the Serendip exactly fits our needs. Very affordable, off the beaten path, but close to everything. The new manager, Brian, is outstanding. He did everything possible to make our stay a complete success. Brian is definitely...

We stayed in the Juliette studio condo as a last minute accommodation but we're very happy with our stay. The owner Brian was very welcoming and helpful; he carried our bags for us and got us all settled. The studio was nice it's on the lower level and the veranda was great to sit out on in the AM.

We stayed 3 nights at Fiesta. It was comfortable, had all the amenities we needed. Brian and Trina, the managers, were friendly and helpful. They responded quickly to emails or phone calls. The Fiesta unit is a basic, (somewhat) updated 1 bedroom condo. There is a large deck (with views to St Thomas) , a king sized bed in the...

We stayed at Serendip in the Juliette unit April 22-27 and it was a fantastic stay! Brian and Trina are incredibly nice and went over the top to take care of us. Brian even took me Tarpon fishing!!!

This was a great find. We were trying to find a decent accommodation on St. John, without paying the high prices of the premium resorts. Serendip Vacation Condos exceeded my expectations. I had read a lot of great reviews before booking, and they were all true! Brain and Trina were terrific hosts. They were incredibly helpful, and virtually always available....

Due to a northeast blizzard we extended our stay by two nights and Serendip happily accommodated us. We rented "Bravo." Comfortable and clean; nice patio and views. Perfect for a short stay for our family of four or I would stay a longer period if it were just my husband and I (only one bathroom and kids slept on daybeds...

For our first visit to St. John, I wasn't sure where to stay. My husband and I prefer to vacation at a condo. We like to have breakfast outside relaxing to the sounds of nature. Serendip was a great pick. We stayed in Alpha and had a great view of Cruz Bay. The location was great. Brenda and Todd, the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled within a lush, tropical setting on two acres with ocean views to Cruz Bay, our one-bedroom and studio condos at Serendip Vacation Condos are being continually upgraded inside and out. We are an intimate complex of only 10 units in a quiet residential area of St. John. Each of the 8 one-bedroom and 2 studio condos have a fully-equipped kitchen, AC, cable, and large covered veranda with ocean views. The studio units have an maximum occupancy of 2 guests. Our one-bedroom units have a maximum occupancy of 4 guests, with NO additional 'per person' fees! The guest laundry facilities are a great added value for small families or the budget friendly traveler, and we also have beach towels, beach chairs & even a cooler for your memorable days on our beautiful USVI National Park beaches. One of our favorite features is the large covered veranda that extends the length of the entire condo and is a wonderful place for dining, reading a book or watching the sunset. The condo complex also has a lovely pool with a seating area, chaise lounges, and BBQ grill. Review our photos and let us know which unit you are interested in reserving when you submit an inquiry. This will allow us to provide an accurate rate and more details about the specific unit. Serendip is one of the best St John vacation values on the island. We look forward to having you as our guest. ... more   less
