This classic Caribbean pod-style villa features lush landscaping with separate units for maximum privacy. The main house includes a spacious living room, a fully-equipped kitchen with up-to-date appliances and granite countertops, a laundry room with a washer and dryer, a library, a master bedroom, and a bathroom.

Across the pool deck sits a second unit with a bedroom, a queen-sized bed, and bathroom. The third unit features a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a large living area, another kitchen, and a bathroom. Also on site is a Veranda - perfect for dining and relaxing in the shade, while enjoying panoramic views of the water and sunsets.

All rooms feature luxurious feather-beds so you can get a restful night's sleep before tomorrow's adventures. Perfect for honeymooners and families, Calicaribe is your ultimate U.S. Virgin Islands vacation experience!
My family and I (four young kids) absolutely loved this house. Great location on top of Contant Hill with a fantasic view, particularly from the patio/pool area, of St. Thomas, Pillsbury Sound and the hills surrounding Cruz Bay. Picturesque. The house is immaculate. Very comfortable and very private. Less than a 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay and maybe 15-20 minutes to the best beaches on the north shore (Hawksnest Bay, Trunk Bay). It can be hit or miss when you rent a house on the internet but no issues with Calicaribe. Absolutely top notch. We will be back. Note - you must get a four wheel drive vehicle (jeeps are all over the place) to get around the island. Taxi service seemed ok but if you plan to get out and about, buck up for a car rental (four wheel drive) and have fun.
My family and I just returned from a week at Calicaribe on St. John, USVI. My wife and I, along with our two teens, very much enjoyed the villa and everything it had to offer - not the least of which is the truly magnificent view! The view extends over 180 degrees from St. Thomas to the British Virgin Islands and enjoys spectacular sunsets over St. Thomas. The villa is even more impressive in person and was perfectly stocked with everything we needed. The owner and local property managers are wonderful to deal with and entirely professional. I would not hesitate staying here on our next trip or recommending it to our family and friends. The location is minutes away from Cruz Bay which offers great island shopping and top notch restaurants (although you will require a jeep rental). The beaches on the island are also some of the nicest beaches we have ever enjoyed (Trunk and Cinnamon are our favorites). While the villa is great for a family with teens or older, it would also be a great rental for three couples. The bedrooms are well separated and provide plenty of privacy, including the third bedroom suite with its own entrance and kitchen facilities. A romantic tropical paradise for certain
Our family just returned from a wonderful week at Calicaribe. There were three couples, my husband and I, our two sons and DILs. Everyone had their own private space with bathroom attached and shared the main living spaces. The 'pod' style layout is different from what we are used to, but in our case, it worked out perfectly. Everyone had privacy when they wanted it and gathered in the living room to play games or be together, have meals, etc. The house itself is so nice, very nicely done with high end finishes, the bedrooms equipped with very comfy bedding. The indoor/outdoor shower is unique and 'cool', however, I might prefer to be able to a/c it while getting hair and make-up done...just my opinion, and might be more uncomfortable in June than other times of year.
Calicaribe is absolutely the nicest villa I've ever stayed at. The views were outstanding, the decor was beautiful as well as comfortable and we were able to walk into town and back every day (if you're into the steep hillside). We enjoyed the pool and really didn't need to leave the villa as the pool was beautiful as well as the views. The sunsets were incredible as well as the moon shining over the water at night. This villa would be perfect for 3 couples as every room had it's own ensuite bath. Although we didn't use, the lower suite was nice for extra privacy and had it's own mini kitchen. I would definitely recommend this villa and will be staying there on my future visits.
