If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing, family-oriented or two couples vacation home, conveniently located to Coral Bay and Cruz Bay, plus only 8 minutes from the amazing north shore beaches St. John is so famous for - then Sunflower Villa is the place to stay! 

The house is a welcoming, homey environment that is comprised of 3 pods. One pod is a combination of two bedrooms connected by a large bathroom, perfect for parents and young kids. The second pod is the kitchen, great room and a half bath. A large connecting deck is the ideal place for sunbathing after relaxing in the swimming pool; enjoying sun downers after a day at the beach; dining al fresco while listening to music on the rock speakers that connect to the Sirius FM stations on the TV or your own music on the I-Pod docking station.

It’s a great romantic home for two couples who share the deck and the great room but enjoy complete privacy on two separate levels. The third bedroom is located downstairs in another pod with a smaller private deck, and outdoor shower overlooking Coral Bay~ and the view out to sea that stretches for 41 miles. Queen bed with a full futon for up to 8 guests upon guest request and owner approval. Windows and large sliders fill each room, providing views no matter which direction you look. Out the kitchen window is a small back-patio area complete with a large grill for barbecues.

The home is Eco-friendly with energy efficient appliances; ample fresh water collection and storage; a three-filter UV system that makes the water safe for drinking; a solar heater for hot water; and fifteen solar panels and a Tesla Power Wall that helps ensure you will have power in the case of an outage.

The great room has beautiful bamboo floors and comfortable living room furniture. A wooden counter with stools and granite counters providing good cooking space. There is also a comfortable dining table and chairs. AC units in the bedrooms, but they have rarely been used thanks to the cool breezes that sweep around this lovely, low-key luxury villa.

If you want to catch beautiful sunrises over East End or fiery sunset skies from the west, then Sunflower Villa will not disappoint. When you arrive, after passing through a privacy gate, a cheerful wall full of painted sunflowers greets you. A step onto the deck will take your breath away as you see the view out to sea, or across the valley. Sunflower Villa is the perfect place for families or two couples that want comfort, hominess, privacy or the perfect place to dance under the stars if the mood strikes.

If enjoying the environment without hurting it is important to you, then you will love Sunflower Villa. Welcome and enjoy yourself!

Best Vacation EVER!

Sunflower Villa was the perfect home for our first time back since the hurricane vacation! Gorgeous views, great location, close to the North Shore beaches, perfect for 2 couples with or without children. The kitchen well appointed and roomy. We cooked in for half of our stay (who wants to leave that gorgeous view!) We put out nectar for the hummingbirds and enjoyed our many visitors! The drive to the villa is the easiest we have ever encountered in Coral Bay. The owners have hired the best property managers on the island (Antares property and Hospitality), The attention to detail was outstanding! Thanks so much! We look forward to returning next year! Kathy and Crew.

Thank you Kathy. We are so glad your first visit to St John post storms was enjoyable! We agree Sunflower Villa is conveniently located with easy access - Hard to find on STJ sometimes! Thank you for letting us host your stay! We loved having you as guests and we hope to have you stay with us again soon! -Your Island Hosts

Gorgeous Property!

My wife and I had a wonderful and comfortable 6 night stay in this spacious house that overlooks Coral Bay. It is well furnished and in great condition, large enough for a family with children and another couple to have their own private bedrooms and share the kitchen/living space. Pool, darts beautiful deck area enhanced our stay. It was also conveniently located to beaches and many other nature activities. We’d return if we get another chance to visit St. John in the future. The concierge service was most helpful in meeting us and giving us a tour of the property upon arrival.

Thank you, Mel, for your review! We are so glad you and your wife enjoyed your time on island, hanging around the pool deck at Sunflower Villa, and at the nearby beaches! We would love to have you return sometime in the near future as well. Thank you for letting us be your Island Hosts. We hope to hear from you again soon!

Perfect getaway for our family

My husband and I traveled with our six month old and my parents. We had all the amenities needed for a perfect vacation in paradise. Thank you to Antares for coordinating baby equipment rentals to make our trips down and back easy. The house is stunning and the attention to detail was great. We will definitely be back.

Thank you Kelly! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Sunflower Villa! No problem setting up the baby equipment. We are here on island to help! We loved having you as our guests and we hope to hear from you again soon!

Sheer Delight!

We had a wonderful stay at Sunflower Villa on St. John! It is a lovely property with a stunning view of Coral Bay. We liked the appealing bungalow style. The room arrangement with three separate bedrooms worked well for us: a couple, their daughter and a single woman. And I appreciated the outdoor shower! We liked having breakfast on the wonderful deck and we cooked dinner in on some nights. Only challenge is a rather steep driveway that we would back up. And location is beautiful but is in a hilly area and you need to drive for coffee, groceries, restaurants, etc. It was convenient to have a masseuse come to the house! So glad to have help from Antares!

Thank you Meg! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Sunflower Villa ~ And that the room set up worked perfectly for you! It is hard to beat a massage with a view and we are happy to have helped you with that experience! We loved having you as our guests and hope to hear from you again soon!

Best of Nature & Comfort

Have you dreamed of being close to nature? Bathing in starlight at night, sleeping to the insects' chirping, and basking in the breeze in the morning ... Do you also dread certain elements of nature, such as bugs, critters, snakes, or just the rain? This property is an excellent choice for anyone who wants both nature and comfort. The location offers a fabulous view of coral bay (see pictures). At night, starlight stabbed my eyes with the lights off. Lying on bed, with the fan on, screen door closed and glass door on, the wind and breeze kept the mosquitoes away, and the insects, wind and rain lulled me to sleep. In the day, I thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor shower after a day of hiking and swimming. My family of 5 were grateful for the 5 beds at this property, and the well equipped and stuffed kitchen and living room. The staff were extremely courteous, resourceful, and responsive. Finally, a note of caution: you need a JEEP to access the property. The climb is steep, the turns sharp, and the road narrow. Welcome to St. John!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Sunflower Villa! We agree this unique property is the perfect balance of nature and comfort. Also, thank you for your note on the Jeep as that is necessary for almost all roads on St John. We loved having you as our guests and we hope to hear from you again soon! -Your Island Hosts

Perfect location between Coral & Cruz Bay

Recently stayed here in October with my spouse and one other couple. The property is in the most perfect location to have quick access to all the beaches near Coral bay and Cruz bay. The view is spectacular! I was really impressed with the layout of the home and felt we had so much privacy downstairs where the room is separate from the upstairs rooms. We never felt crowded in the living room area and the kitchen had all the essentials needed for preparing breakfast each morning. The open air living room was lovely and the ac in each bedroom was most welcomed! We had nightly tree frogs visit us at the outdoor shower which was amazing. I loved sitting on the HUGE patio downstairs. Even when it rained the downstairs patio provided shelter from the quick rain shower. We spent each night sitting at the table on the main deck just listening to the nature around us. The pool was perfect to dip into after a day of snorkeling. And the hose was great for rinsing off our beach items. What I absolutely loved the most though was the sitting area where the bbq pit was. The pictures online do not show just how incredible this spot was! You are sitting directly against the wonderful rain forest like backdrop and there were hummingbirds visiting every morning. This was actually my favorite spot on the entire property. I sat here each morning enjoying my coffee while surrounded by stunning nature views. It was a very peaceful place to sit and relax. I took many pictures of this spot just so I could remember it's beauty. We had a great time here at Sunflower Villa and I highly recommended it! Thank you Antares for going above and beyond to ensure we had the best vacation : )

Hello Shayla! Thank you for your lovely review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Sunflower Villa! We really appreciate your review! Since this is a new to the rental market property your feedback is extremely helpful to future guests. We at Antares agree this property has many unique qualities such as the convenient location, layout, and privacy. We loved having you stay with us and we hope to see you again soon! -Your Island Hosts

Wonderful location, very well-loved home!!

We just returned from a lovely stay at Sunflower Villa on Ajax Peak. There is a beautiful view of Coral Bay. We have been to St. John many times, and our favorite aspect of this home was its central location. Trips to either the Coral Bay or Cruz Bay side of the island are very convenient. The home is very well cared for and family friendly. As always, the Antares team is available to answer any questions and help make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! Can't wait for our next trip!

Thank you so much LeAnn for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Sunflower Villa. You truly cant beat the location! We love having you stay with us and look forward to seeing you on island again soon! -Your Island Hosts

Spectacular Views, Family Friendly!

Perfectly located for access to beaches and the Coral Bay community, this villa is super comfortable and eco-friendly. Fully-paved access to the home is most welcome on St. John. The open living, dining and kitchen area is charmingly furnished with everything you could wish for. There is a generous Dish Network package, great and reliable internet connection, and you can stream Netflix with no hiccups. In case of a power outage, the Tesla battery backup covers you. A huge deck area with pool offers outdoor dining and sunning overlooking the mile-wide view of Coral Bay harbor and Bordeaux Mountain. Three bedrooms offer both privacy for couples and closeness for families with smaller children. The Antares Hospitality staff is very helpful and responsive to any questions. We loved staying here!

Thank you so much for your kind and helpful notes! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay on island at Sunflower Villa! This villa is a true St John Gem! We loved having you stay with us and hope to see you again soon! -Your Island Hosts
