Welcome to Hakuna Matata, a luxurious 4-bedroom villa on the dream island getaway of St John in the US Virgin Islands. The lavishly decorated property is the epitome of high-end island living. With breathtaking views of Cinnamon Bay and the stunning British Virgin Islands, Hakuna Matata allows you to enjoy all that the glorious islands have on offer. Whether you are looking to spend your days soaking up the sun on the pristine white sand beaches or try your hand at some of the more adventurous activities like scuba diving, this villa on St John is a great jumping-off point to immerse yourself in the Caribbean Islands.

Centrally located between Cruz and Coral Bay, this property provides a safe environment with its gated entrance while still being close to the buzz of local towns. The multi-tiered stone terrace is bordered with lush tropical plants providing guests with privacy to lay out in the sun on the sleek sun loungers. A waterfall and fishpond add to the natural ambiance of the terrace. The free-form pool gazes out over the dense jungle to the crystal-clear sea below. Perfect for cooling off in the midday heat, a refreshing dip in the villa's private pool can revitalize you before setting off to explore St John in the afternoon. The poolside alfresco dining area is kept cool by the trade winds wafting off the Caribbean, ideal for an afternoon cocktail. The villa's private hot tub is perfect for hanging out with your friends after dinner, enjoying some prosecco as the sun sets in the distance.

Arched French doors lead from the lounging area on the veranda to the living room so that you can flow seamlessly from the outdoors to the living area, which includes an entertainment center and dining table. White sofas and wicker furnishings convey a casual beachy vibe. Local art and traditional accessories and details add a pop color. The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can try your hand at replicating some of the incredible Caribbean cuisine at home. The stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops provide everything you could possibly need to whip up any meal your heart could desire. A large breakfast island is perfect for casual quick bites in the morning before setting out to further investigate the island. Each of the bedrooms has its own private terrace where you can savor a delicious coffee in the quiet of the dawn or share an intimate glass of wine after dark when the night's sky is full of stars.

The villa's complimentary beach toys and water equipment make day trips to the North Shore, the home of some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean a dream. Spending the day splashing about at the beach is the best way to work up an appetite before hitting the town of Cruz Bay for dinner and drinks. With the Virgin Islands National Park on your doorstep, there are many hikes and walks to visit with some spectacular viewpoints. Some of the nearby islands are easily accessible by boat. Our concierge service can organize a private boat to bring you to some of the more secluded spots. With so much on offer, a stay in any of our incredible St John villas is bound to be the holiday of a lifetime.
