La Bella Villa: where you can choose sun or shade, always with great views!
A welcoming entrance to our charming villa, with island stone work and mahogany all around.
You enter a spacious living room with access to the big covered deck...comfort, views and breezes!
The covered deck itself is perfect for reading, snoozing, chatting and dining.
Coral Bay is front and center...and a pleasure to enjoy watching all day!
Local birds, bananaquits, will come to the deck railing to feast on sugar water.
The front deck is also perfect for al fresco dining -- with a view, of course!
Back inside, the kitchen has all the amenities you need for easy cooking, and opens to the pool deck
And with a view like this, who can complain about doing dishes (or loading the dishwasher)?!
The bedrooms are on either side of the living room, which creates nice privacy.
The master bedroom features a romantic, king-sized British Colonial bed...
with views out to the Bay and access to the covered front deck.
The master bathroom has a sweet tiled shower and all the bathroom basics.
The second bedroom has a queen bed and overlooks the pool deck.
Here's the view from the second bedroom, including of Bordeaux Mountain.
The second bathroom is bright and airy and leads out to one of the best things about La Bella Villa.
The outdoor shower will spoil you forever! Showering under the sun or the stars is wonderful!
We love the pool deck...private, sunny, and the perfect place to read and tan.
The chaise lounges by the pool make for easy sun-bathing.
We provide beach chairs and a cooler for your trip to the beach.
The pool deck is great for breakfast, with views of Coral Bay and the mountains. Charming.
The pool deck is separate from the front deck -- a nice safety feature.
You'll love the stonework of the house including our two fossilized fish in the walls.
You'll also enjoy the lush tropical landscaping -- and the occasional wild life (gentle donkeys)!
You'll love the changing and always fascinating views -- morning, noon and night.
Did I mention the views?
Easy parking and easy access to our sweet villa!
Please come to La Bella Villa, a beautiful place in the American paradise called St. John.

Coral Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
La Bella Villa is a unique, hand-crafted home made of island stone and masonry. It has a gorgeous view of Coral Bay and of beautiful Bordeaux Mountain. The house itself has all the character and warmth of a traditional Caribbean home, yet it is modern, well equipped, clean, and comfortable. Romantics will adore this picturesque and idyllic home and marvel at the architectural touches.

The house faces Coral Bay: its 12 by 40 foot long covered porch lures you into sitting outside to read, watch the view, talk and simply enjoy comfortable outside living. Each room has a beautiful view and each bedroom is individually appointed with island art and touches. And you’ll love the magnificent mahogany shutters and doors (all fully screened, of course) all around the house.

Behind a Caribbean stone wall and next to the villa, La Bella Villa’...

We loved this home in Coral Bay! The home is located in the quiet part of the island but has amazing restaurants close by. The home is very private and very comfortable. We loved the decor, the huge porch overlooking the ocean and the location. The king bed was very comfortable and the home was larger than we expected. The...

Management response:

We love it when everything works perfectly for guests, and we love introducing people to the many pleasures of St John!

We've returned to La Bella Villa once again -- the intimacy of La Bella Villa and the beautiful view and refreshing breezes of St. John's Coral Bay always makes for a relaxing, comfortable and panoramic experience.One instantly is embraced as you walk through the front door by La Bella Villa's open spacious comfortable living room and open access to the...

We love having honeymooners as well as folks celebrating anniversaries stay at La Bella Villa. Must be that big British Colonial 4-poster bed! Or maybe the outdoor shower, which spoils you forever! There's just something about showering under the stars. Come back soon -- you're always welcome!

We have been vacationing on STJ for 12 years, and I have reviewed many properties. La Bella Villa is perfect for a small family or two couples. Though it is not air conditioned, the breezes coming from Coral Bay harbor, made our stay very comfortable, especially in the master BR. The back BR could probably use a small unit or...

We were so pleased to have you stay at the villa and so glad you loved it. There's just something special about this place -- it's great for honeymooners, families, and couples. We'll look forward to seeing you again soon -- with a repaired (actually, with hopefully a brand new!) pool.

About the neighborhood
La Bella Villa is on Cedar Lane, in a small "neighborhood" of 7 houses just up the hill from Coral Bay proper. Several of these houses are lived in by permanent residents which makes the area safe and private. However, it is only a 20 minute ride back to Cruz Bay, about a 3 minute ride down the hill to the restaurants, shops and grocery store in Coral Bay, and a 15 minute ride to the famous North Shore beaches. Also, access to the villa is easy...up a slight (but not scary) hill...with a flat, easy-to-access entrance.
