“Awesome location and Caribbean view”

The villa is one of three on the property but we had it all to ourselves during our stay so it felt very secluded - only us, iguanas and birds, and some wandering cats who would drink from the pool on occasion. The photos don't lie - Simply gorgeous picture perfect views of Cruz Bay from the porch of the hillside villa. It was a nice walk to town (and we got our exercise walking back up as the driveway is fairly steep). Villa was large, clean, and there was a nice welcoming gift of snacks left for us. Only downsides were 1. the lack of air conditioning in the main rooms and lack of much ac power in the bedrooms (but we do understand there is not much need for this when the spring/fall/winter breezes are blowing) and 2. the really low water pressure for showering. Also, there was nothing specifically communicated to us or in the villa by the sink regarding if the tap water was safe to drink. Rather, we read about this in a binder of info. after we drank it. Still not certain if it was safe or not, although no one in our party got sick.

“Loved the view and convenient location!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I stayed here 10 days in June. We have been to St. John 8 or 9 times and this was my favorite location of all. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the center of Cruz Bay. The bedrooms had comfortable beds. The ac worked great! It has an above ground pool that is shared with the villa below. It has a gate that made us feel very secure. It is very private. It had a bird's eye view of Cruz Bay, the NPS office, the Lind Point Trail, and the Cruz Bay harbor. There were also a lot of birds and other critters to view on the property. I would definitely stay here again!

“Great location and you can't beat the view”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband and I and another couple stayed here for a week and would rent here again. We have stayed on St John before, in different locations in/around Cruz Bay, as well as in Coral Bay. This villa is in a perfect location - close to everything, and with a fabulous deck with an outstanding view of Cruz Bay looking across to St Thomas. It's perfect to watch the 'world' go by.
I was concerned about potential noise, but the a/c was on at night in the rooms and thus it drowned out any outside sounds (e.g., music). In the early morning we loved watching the town come to life and in the afternoon, the sunsets were fabulous. The only concern to note for staying here would be for someone with mobility problems, since the driveway is steep. Agree with others that the appliances are dated, but they work. A mid-week cleaning would have been nice (we were told one would happen once during the week but it did not) but that was not a big deal. Was nice to be able to do laundry and cook a few meals.
Overall, I would recommend this rental.

“Unbeatable location and views!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We have visited St. John a few times before and this time we wanted to be located within walking distance to Cruz Bay for the restaurants and bars. Captain's View offered the perfect location, a bit of a hike uphill, but not bad if you are in reasonable shape. The views were terrific and allowed us to enjoy watching the town wake up in the morning while enjoying our morning coffee on the balcony. The evening sunsets were great. Captains View is a great value with fairly basic accommodation, not luxury, but very adequate. We had a great week and did not have to worry about a car rental as we utilized the local taxis and Vitran bus when going over to Coral Bay or Salt Pond.

“Great stay in town”

We loved this property for it's great location and the views. It is located close to everything in town, though you have to walk up a couple steep hills to get to it. The condo has all the amenities you need except some of the appliances are very dated and the bed pillows were horrible. It was nice to be able to cook our own meals and the grill was nice. We spent most of our time on the deck staring at the amazing view. No one checked on us while we were there and it would have been nice for someone to check in and see how we were doing. The welcome amenities in the fridge were a nice touch and overall I would definitely recommend staying here.
