We have visited St. John many times and stayed at various locations. Without doubt we found Calicaribe the most delightful. Close to town, yet secluded, with stunning views, a super terrace and pool, and well separated bedrooms, it is the ideal base to explore our favorite island. The house is clean, beautiful and totally liveable. The owners and local representatives are nice and responsive. We will be back.
We stayed in this lovely villa late November with another couple and even though the villa has 3 bedrooms, we only utilized the two on the main floor. Calicaribe is located only minutes from the ferry in Cruz Bay yet is set in a very private area with amazing views. All the indoor living spaces were great including great beds and an amazing master bathroom shower. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in along with an outdoor grill. The best part of the villa is the outdoor spaces with a covered porch, swimming pool and beautiful views. My husband is a paraplegic and the villa worked great for him. The main living areas and 2 bedrooms and baths are on one floor with no steps.
We stayed in this villa for 2 weeks and loved it. Have been to St. John for many years and this was the closest to town we have ever stayed.I was nervous at first when I saw how close it was but ended up enjoying the convenience of that! The owner, greeter, and staff were all very helpful and accommodating. The beds were great, the amenities, showers, and living areas were top notch. But the best feature is the outside living areas and pool with stellar views of the sound, boats and ferries and best of all sunsets every night! We enjoyed the iguana and hummingbird daily visits. There is a sound system, comfortable loungers, shade and sun options and the pool was perfect! Sometimes the pools can be cold but not this one. The owners provided beach chairs, towels, coolers, etc. Even the shampoo! Can't wait to return and will definitely stay here again.

I can't begin to say how happy I am with this vacation rental. In fact, it has me longing for the days that we were there. We planned this trip with some college friends of ours. Our house manager met us at the Ferry station and guided us to the car rental place...Cool Blow...which you want to use because you can park your car in their lot when you are downtown...Which by the way is less than five minutes away from the rental driving.
The house is set up in such a manner that everyone has their own privacy. Yet has a common area to hang out. The pool and patios are so beautiful and the view FANTASTIC. We went out during the days and then spent our evenings at home cooking a partying. We love to run the streets and play at bars, however, there was no need to be away from this gem. In fact, writing about it has me wanting to book another trip there. We went during October and I was worried about hurricane season a bit. We booked at the tail end. It did rain one day while we were there but not too much or for too long! I truly cannot say enough about this rental. It is amazing and I am very picky!
The owners are very communicative and great to work with. They have everything you need there except for your food and beverages...and they even leave you a little welcome basket.
I had the pleasure of staying at CaliCaribe for 8 days. It truly is a slice of heaven. If you are looking to relax, recharge and unwind this is the perfect location to do so. It's very romantic and the perfect set up for couples. The rooms are situated in such a way that provide plenty of privacy. The villa is decorated with elegant and beautiful touches.
The view is even more breath taking in person and the most beautiful I've ever seen!!
Town is a short walk or drive down the hill into Cruz Bay with all the restaurants, shopping and bars. A very cute area. The beaches I visited were all unbelievable.
I can't wait to go back! I've told all my friends and family about what an amazing place Calicaribe is.
