When we began our search for a villa for this trip we had a few requirements: a pool, a great view, and AC (at least in the bedrooms). We found all that and more at Luna Vista. We booked our trip just a few days before we left and the owners, Jan and Bruce, were quick in their response helping us to arrange everything in a timely manner. When we got to Luna Vista we couldn't believe our eyes. The photos online barely did it justice. The whole place was immaculate and brand new. It was tastefully decorated and spacious. The bedrooms were of equal size and both had new AC's. Not that we needed them for our stay. This place truly had tradewind breezes. Other Villas we had stayed at advertised tradewind breezes, but we had never actually experienced them. At Luna Vista there was a constant refreshing breeze all day and night. Open screened windows and fans were all we needed. The pool was perfect and was surrounded by beautiful landscaping, ensuring privacy. While Luna Vista is an apartment, part of a larger villa, we never felt our privacy was compromised in any way. This villa was obviously well built as we NEVER heard the owners in their unit. We also felt very safe at Luna Vista. After learning of a break in (while the renters were home) in a villa we had stayed at previously, safety was at the top of our list.
Some additional benefits we enjoyed were the incredible view of St. John and the BVI's that stretched on and on forever. The drive up to the villa was very easy and quick to navigate and the parking spot for Luna Vista is right next to the rental with NO STAIRS. Just a neat, safe, brick-paved walkway surrounded by lush landscaping, orchids, and fragrant flowers. This made loading and unloading the car for move in day and day trips very easy and non taxing. The villa is centrally located on Centerline road. Around 10 minutes to Coral Bay, about 15 to Cruz Bay (depending on the cows), and 5 minutes to the north shore beaches.
The kitchen was well laid out and everything was new and in working order. The grill on the porch was very nice.
For days when we felt like lounging around the villa there was a flat screen TV and lots of satellite channels as well as games, books and movies (DVD). When we were missing our dogs at home the resident pooches would come up when called and show us some love and attention. The kitties were adorable as well.
We feel that Luna Vista was perfection and we plan on booking there again for our next trip. The value is incredible. For the same price at other villas you will not find a view, a pool, or AC. We found Luna Vista at:
