Stunning Views, Peaceful Location, Large Pool & Minutes from Cruz Bay

Villa with private pool, near Virgin Islands National Park
A fantastic home for families or multiple couples to enjoy peace and tranquility, with stunning ocean views, a large pool, and the convenience of Cruz Bay only minutes away. Terrapin Station (formerly known as Stella Bella) underwent a major renovation in 2020 that included an all-new kitchen, master bath, guest suite, AC systems and furnishings. The property retains the charms of old St. John while providing the modern conveniences you expect in a vacation home.

The upstairs has an open floor plan with amazing views. The chef-worthy kitchen sits just above a sunken living and dining area, allowing everyone to gather during meal time and social hour - or to watch a game on the 60” screen. Outside the living room is an expansive deck that overlooks Chocolate Hole and Hart Bay, with St Thomas to the west and St Croix to the south.

Adjoining the living area are two equal-sized primary suites. Each suite has its own private bath and large covered screened-n porch. Both bedrooms are over 350 sf and feature new king-size beds plus a separate day bed for napping…or keeping little ones close by.

The other two bedrooms are downstairs. Both are mini-apartments with private baths, kitchenettes and separate entrances – perfect for in-laws or outlaws who need privacy. Bedroom #3 is set up like a two-room hotel suite, with a king-size bed in one room and space for a full size air mattress in the separate living area. Bedroom #4 is an efficiency configuration, with a queen-size bed and a full kitchen. The views are essentially identical from all four of the villa’s bedrooms.

There are other great features throughout the house. For starters, 100% of the living area is air conditioned, which isn’t typical on St John. Terrapin Station has one of the island’s larger pools – and it’s private enough for skinny-dipping! If cooking is your thing, the well-appointed kitchen, two refrigerators and an outdoor grill will make your week. Fast internet service, a brand new laundry room, Tesla Power Walls to keep the lights on during a power outage, and parking for 3+ vehicles makes this a great place to call your island home.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this villa offer private pools and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Accommodations are furnished with dining tables and kitchen islands. Kitchens or kitchenettes offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers.

Beautiful property and view!
Beautiful property, worked out perfect for four couples. The large pool was certainly a bonus. Would definitely stay there again if we ever have a large group. The property manager Katja was always ready with quick response to any questions we had.

great home over all.
We loved our stay here. The main level has deck with beautiful view of Chocolate Hole and other bays. Nice pool, it is two levels below main level cascading down the hill. Two apt type rooms are one level below main level, each with their own bathroom. Driveway is very steep, need 4-wheel vehicle to drive up it safely, but there are many mountains on this island, so not surprising.. Property management was very responsive. Master bedroom mattress was comfortable, but other three couples said the mattresses definitely needed to be replaced. Deck is a bit worn with many nail heads sticking up slightly, so wear shoes. Overall, great place to stay and will be even better after some maintenance.

Great stay at Terrapin Station
We enjoyed our stay. House was well equipped with everything you needed. Great pool and superb views. Driveway a bit steep but we were able to handle after our first attempt. 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay. We would definitely return. Special thanks to Tori, the property manager, particularly due to flight cancellations we had to deal with. Communications were great
