Villa Great Expectations St John. Savor optimal privacy and amazing views when you stay at the luxurious Villa Great Expectations on St John. Offering you such sights as Hart Bay and Great Cruz Bay, it is a six-bedroom property that sits just above the water and provides visitors with the ultimate in comfort and luxury. Comprised of a main villa and guest house, it has been decorated in a blend of island, Balinese and Dutch modern styles to create a wonderfully robust and appealing setting.

The building is designed as three large pavilions with a great room comprising the central structure. They all face the gardens and the sea, and offer an immense range of outdoor and indoor living spaces. The pool terrace will prove popular and features a large pool, sun terraces and shaded dining or lounging areas, and a Jacuzzi. From the terrace, you can descend to the docks where boats are available. There is also a tennis and basketball court to be enjoyed, and a path that leads to the guest house.  Here, too, you find a pool and Jacuzzi as well as two bedrooms and other comforts.

The interiors are as appealing and welcoming, with the great room in the central pavilion housing a large dining area, a lovely living room and small office space, an entertainment space and the full-sized, gourmet kitchen.

Four of the bedrooms are in the main house and each is a master suite with king bed, large and private bath with outdoor shower and lovely views. The guest house has two suites on the upper and lower levels. They are queen suites with private patios or terraces, outdoor showers and private baths, entertainment systems and more.

Do we share the villa? click to close
No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.
