"If we were any closer to heaven, we'd be talking to St. Peter" said one guest about Great Turtle Villa.

Tucked into the lush mountainside above Coral Bay, behind an electronic gate, Great Turtle Villa is a casually elegant vacation villa with four bedrooms in two two-story pavilions bisected by a pool.

Rent 1, 2, 3 or all 4 bedrooms while just your group enjoys access to the main house, decks and pool. Honeymoon couple? Rent 1 bedroom. Girls' getaway? Rent all 4 bedrooms. The house is all yours! Rates vary depending on the number of bedrooms booked.

Great Turtle Villa is accessed via all paved roads, a rare amenity on St. John and very welcome in a tropical downpour. It is located in the comfortable, upscale neighborhood of Upper Carolina. Surrounding homes are on large lots hidden by lush foliage which provides lots of privacy. Enter Great Turtle Villa's drive through an electronic gate which not only adds extra privacy and security but it also keeps the wild donkeys out!

The front door opens onto the larger pavilion's main level which contains the attractive living and dining areas and the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with a marble-topped work table and breakfast bar. In the living area, a flat-screen TV, stereo, DVD, plus music and video libraries, provide indoor entertainment. The fully-equipped kitchen boasts stainless appliances, granite counters and enough dishes, bake-ware, and pans to satisfy the most particular chef. Hand-polished mahogany screened french doors open onto spacious shaded decks with cushy rockers and inviting chaises lounges, perfect for enjoying the cool trade-wind breezes. An outdoor walkway above the pool and courtyard garden leads to the other pavilion with its master bedroom suite. An open staircase heads down beside the garden, passing exquisite orchids and a stately coconut palm, as it leads to the lower pool deck level with three more bedrooms and a home office.

All four equal size bedrooms open onto large decks, with dazzling views, AC, adjoining baths, and walk-in closets making Great Turtle Villa a perfect vacation rental for friends or families to share. No one gets stuck in the "back bedroom with no view". The pool, just steps from your bedroom, is perfect, from a morning dip to a midnight swim. The lush courtyard garden ensures total privacy for swimming or sunning on the deck. When children are present, to keep them safe, self-locking gates around the pool can be utilized. The home office is equipped with high-speed internet, WiFi, a printer, and copier.

Just minutes from fabulous National Park beaches and the funky bars and restaurants of Coral Bay, this villa's central location allows easy access to both sides of St. John. Cruz Bay is only a 20 minute drive away and all the best hiking trails are within easy reach.

Everything about Great Turtle invites you to relax. Spend the day in the cushy rockers on the deck or let your cares slip away as you lounge by the pool. The Caribbean-style decor offers a comfortable mix of inviting antiques and pleasant elegance. The villa's lush tropical gardens are filled with birds-of-paradise, scarlet bougainvillea and rainbow-colored hibiscus. Slice a papaya for breakfast or pick your own lime for cocktails. But it's the awe-inspiring view - sparkling white sails bobbing on turquoise water in Coral Bay, shimmering islands on the horizon, the ever-changing greens on the verdant hills of Bordeaux Mountain, the speckled browns of sugar mill ruins peeking through the foliage of Carolina Valley - that you will carry forever in the memory of your visit to St. John and Great Turtle Villa!

As one guest from Connecticut said, "I travel the world for my work and have seen many beautiful places, but, I must say, your home and the view of Coral Bay tops them all!"

Beautiful property with stunning views

Well furnished and well maintained property with stunning views over Coral Bay. The 4 separate bedroom pods were ideal for us and our 3 kids aged from 18 to 24. Pool is fabulous with views over the bay. Drive to get to the property is a challenge as there are some steep inclines and hairpin bends but that is how most of St John is as the houses are set in the hillside. We use VRBO multiple times a year and this is one of the best homes we have stayed in. The Antares crew do an excellent job managing this villa and dealt with any questions very promptly.

What a way to celebrate my 50th with close friends and family! The view was absolutely breathtaking, the villa was very clean, fully equipped, the pool was on point. It was literally the perfect vacation during this pandemic. I was skeptical in taking a vacation during this time, but after speaking with the owner, and the property management-Antares, I was at ease and looked forward to it. Working with Antares was a breeze! They handled my private transportation on St. Thomas, offered recommendations, met my group to help direct us to the villa (comforting since it was our first time on the island and had no clue where we were driving to); they definitely went above and beyond! It was all well worth the trip. I look forward to visiting St. John and staying at Great Turtle Villa, again!

The VIEW!!

Wow! Those are the words that will come out of your mouth when you walk out into the back deck. The views are just breathtaking. We spent many hours relaxing on the back deck, taking it all in. We just kept thinking how lucky we were to be there to experience it! The house was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Everyone had their own bedroom/bathroom and were happy and comfortable. The pool was awesome. Everything was awesome! If you are considering this place, do it! I would DEFINITELY go back again. **We were there during COVID. Although we felt safe the whole time we were there, a lot of the businesses were closed and/or had reduced hours. That was the only challenge. It was a nice escape though and now I want to go back when things are operating normally.

Amazing oasis in a crazy world!

We had a fantastic week in the villa. The set up was perfect for us. We had two couples and two adult children, so used three of the bedrooms. Kitchen was well furnished. The pool is great. The balcony is amazing. This was our first time to St. John and we will return. The island is stunningly beautiful with a good mixture of privacy/relaxation and things to do (beaches, hiking, etc). Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Amazing views

Our week was amazing! 3 couples stayed in the 4 bedroom house. It is well equipped with everything you need from spices to coolers for the beach. The house has amazing views. All the bedrooms have similar views and the beds are comfortable. I would stay there again!

Wonderful holiday

Beautiful villa and great views. Wonderful breezes although it made the pool a bit cool at times. We had a great family holiday at this property! Had some issues with wifi at the beginning but finally got it sorted out. Would definitely stay again.

Words can not describe Great Turtle Villa!

This villa is spectacular in every way, from the dramatic view, private comfortable rooms to the beautiful living space and expansive covered decks. The location to Coral Bay and the North shore beaches was very convenient. This is a location where family memories are made and treasured.
