Sunset Ridge Villas
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We just spent 2 wonderful weeks at Sunset Ridge Villas. When we walked into our unit, the gorgeous ocean view, spotted with several green islands, took our breath away. The view at night, with the twinkling stars and lights of St Thomas, was equally stunning. The unit was comfortable, large and clean and supplied with everything we needed. When we found the can opener didn't work, the mgmt company promptly replaced it. The pool was clean and refreshing. We were not at all bothered by the lack of A/C since there was always a delightful breeze blowing through the screen doors and windows. We did encounter a mosquito or two but nothing a bit of bug spray couldn't take care of. If you're looking for a fancy hotel resort, then this is probably not your place. If you want a comfortable, large condo at a reasonable price with a gorgeous view, beautiful flowered grounds, clean pool, and a responsive and friendly mgmt company, then head to Sunset Ridge. We're happy we did, and we plan to be back.

Back when SRV was privately owned it was a joke. We have a timeshare in unit F and we would have to bring our own tools to fix the place. Now that Cimmeron has taken over managment, roofs have been repaired, interiors refurnished, floors retiled, and units repainted. An unfortunate casualty of the Cimmeron takeover was the loss of the plunge pools between the units, but the large main pool between units C and B is still there. Sunset Ridge continues to improve with every visit now that Cimmeron has taken over. The views of St. Thomas from the pool deck at Sunset, and equally stunning views of the Caribbean Sea from each of the units can't be beat anywhere on the island.

Room Tip: No units have A/C, but they all have windows facing the ocean, so wind isn't a problem. Units A...

We just spent a week at Sunset Ridge, and had a great time. It had been three years since we were last at Sunset Ridge and were very happy with the upgrades. New mattresses, kitchen cabinets / fixtures, indoor & outdoor furniture, as well as the beach chairs, towels, and coolers were all appreciated. The view from our villa was unbelievable, and we watched the best sunsets on the Island every night.
The management company has done a great job, and we're sure the improvements will continue.

Aside from the villa, we enjoyed our days at Francis Bay, Maho Bay, and Salt Pond Bay, and some of our favorite dinners were at La Tapa, Asolare, Fatty Crab, and Joe's BBQ.

We were fortunate to be able to return to Sunset Ridge Villas again in November. Great time of year to be there. Just before the season begins - warm weather and water, less people and local business gearing up for the season.
NO MORE plunge pools. Courtyards are more open and the main pool is great let along the REALLY big pool - provide by nature. Villas continue to improve, what a change from 2007.
Hope you also enjoy!

Room Tip: All six units are fine. Very quiet and private. Perfect for two couples with two building and common...

The view is amazing and where else can you stay with a group of 7 and not be crowded. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They provided, a welcome package, (loved the rum), beach towels, chairs, coolers & everything else you can imagine. The only thing it needs to be equipped with is bug spray. The no-seeums are terrible! Just remember there is no air-conditioning in the units but they do have ceiling fans and box fans. I would recommend this place to anyone who has a large group traveling with them as long as you don't mind getting back to the simple things in life. Also found "Hawksnest Beach" to be the best as far as snorkeling, many different coral areas. We snorkeled all beaches and this was absolutely the best for viewing a variety of fish. Also found Iguanas bar to have the best grouper fingers!

St John (SJ) is a unique type of island that steals your heart. I have been to many islands from Bahamas to Grenada but fell in love with SJ. If you are middle class & on a budget and don't have to stay at The Ritz - Sunset Ridge is a great place to stay. It's affordable, clean & they are doing upgrades all the time. Little no-seeums, and other little bugs do live all over SJ. I have never had bugs in my dresser, bags and there have been curtains on windows. The furniture is not the very best - but unless you want to pay Westin or Caneel Bay prices - then you look past the furniture. It's clean. We bought 2 weeks at SRV and we love it. The owners are continually doing upgrades & it has come along way. I would recommend it to anyone. I will say there is not a/c. But the breezes & fans at night keep you cool. And we are not there anyway - we are at the beaches, in town - out having fun. The poll looked liked it had been scraped & repainted and I saw no animal feces.

We are back at Sunset Ridge Villa for two weeks in May. The view is the best. With just six units it is very peacful and friendly. Water and weather is warm and less people. Great time to be back on St John.
