Property managed locally by James M. Miller Property Management

Miles Away is an elegant 2 bedroom villa located in Point Rendezvous, only 5 minutes from the shopping and restaurants of Cruz Bay. Tucked into a serene and private setting at the end of a road, this villa is perfect for honeymooners looking for privacy, two couples or a small family.

Two equally sized bedrooms are located on opposite ends of a large and airy great room, and each features a custom made, king sized teak bed and en suite bath. When it's time for dinner - or just a cool drink - the fully appointed kitchen is a cook's dream. Just outside is a lovely private pool, and the decks provide relaxing spots for sun lovers and shade seekers alike, with the peace and serenity of Ram’s Head in the distance, Fish Bay down in front, St. Croix off to the right, and the National Park mountains to the left.

When you are ready to come inside, Miles Away offers wi-fi, 100+ channels of television and DVDs for your entertainment. While the easterly sea breezes keep the home comfortable, there is air conditioning throughout, with individual controls in each room.

All rooms, decks and the pool are on the same level, so there are no steps to climb. If exercise is on your list of things to do, walk down to Fish Bay, to Klein Bay or Ditleff Point. The pool will be there to cool you off upon your return! When you are ready to explore St. John the National Park beaches and snorkeling are just a short drive from Miles Away.

we loved it as much this year as five years ago

  • 5 of 5

We had already enjoyed the property five years ago, and truthfully, it was pretty much like the island itself, in there are some elements that are always going to be there. For "miles away" it was the view of fishbay, the idyllic pool overlooking more aqua blue ocean, the comfort of the house, the tranquil neighborhood, the thoughtful deli goodies for us in the refrigerator.

We now know that "miles away" is the house for us, and will continue to be until we are no longer even looking.

It is exaclty how it is written up to be. We're already planning on a return trip and I know our suitcases will once again roll through "miles away," and I can't wait.

Thanks again for furnishing such a good base for our vacation.

awesome !

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a wonderful villa to spend a week with my husband ! First of all, it is extremely private, as it is the last villa on a dead end road. It would be perfect for 2 couples since the master bedroom suites are on opposite ends of the house. We loved that the villa faces east, so we enjoyed the sunrise, along with having a shaded area in the afternoons to read or simply enjoy the view. The villa is a short 5-10 minute drive to downtown Cruz Bay. The owner has thought of everything : beach chairs, towels, coolers, ice packs in the freezer, beach toys for the children. For rainy days or evenings there are over 200 dvd's , games, books etc. The king size bed is super comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked, and we enjoyed cooking "at home" a couple of evenings. We will definitely be back !!

Our Favorite Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Miles Away several times over the years. There is a very good reason for that ~ the villa is beautiful, perfectly maintained, a short distance to Cruz Bay and most beaches, wonderful sunrise views over Fish Bay, and a lovely pool that seems always fairly warm year round due to being protected from winds and receiving lots of hours of daytime sun. Nothing beats waking up to watch the sunrise while sitting on the comfy outdoor furniture with coffee and a book. Paradise. There is even an outdoor table and chairs for dining under the stars. And, as the villa is all on one level with equal master bedrooms, everyone gets the best bedroom. Having the pool only steps away is fantastic. Full A/C is much appreciated. It is the perfect layout for a small family or 2 couples. The landscaping is exceptional with fruit trees and flowering plants cascading over the natural stone and shell walls. It is also at the end of the road for privacy and quiet. Furniture and appliances are all high quality. Lots of cookware, china, utensils, glassware etc which you won't find in all villas. Makes a big difference. Plenty of very nice towels and beach chairs are also provided. Miles Away is even nicer than the photos show, and they are great photos. James (Marc) Miller is wonderful to work with. Everything was very easy to arrange and when we had a couple of very minor maintenance issues I was blown away by how quickly he responded. Fred who keeps the villa running smoothly could not be nicer or more helpful. Everything about the villa and the management exceeded expectations. We can hardly wait until our next stay!

The best option for our holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days with my husband in the house ( just las week) and we were impressed, it exceeded our expectations. I do not want to be repetitive but all previous positive comments regarding this house are over accurate: placement, private area, excellent building, super well equipped, unbeatable views, excellent service, outstanding swimming pool, incredible porch around the house, the videos they offer to spend "after adventure" evenings... everything even better than photographs. It was a pleasure for us having enjoyed this piece of paradise, that made our holidays, unique. We want to come back as soon as possible with our 3 kids.

Our second year in a row at Miles Away !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Miles Away for the second year in a row the first week of May. The House is exactly as advertised in fact id say it is actually better in person than it looks in the pictures. The house is well equipped with everything we needed, Washer, Dryer, Ninja blender, 2 coffee makers, plenty of silverware/ plates/ glasses etc. The Refrigerator has an awesome ice maker that really comes in handy for making frozen drinks to take to the beach like we did everyday. The Master Bedroom is big with a very nice 4 poster bed that is very comfortable. Very nice stone shower in master bath and plenty of nice (and large) bath and beach towels. The house has full A/C which is nice when you get home from the hot beach days, of course we also took great advantage of the nice pool outside. The house is at the end of a residential road so it is very private. The pool itself is bordered by a beautiful stone wall with flowers surrounding the top of it. We appreciated small things like the many outlets in key places for charging phones/ ipads etc....we've stayed in houses where this it not the case and it can be annoying. The cable and Wi-Fi at Miles away work very well which is not always the case on St John The house has nice flat screen TVs in the main room and master bedroom). Besides the house itself we have had the pleasure the last 2 years of dealing with Mark Miller who is the owners Property Manager. He could not have made the process any easier. Not only were we able to leave our things at the house early in the day prior to check in time but we were also given an awesome welcome basket from Sam and Jack's deli, which is a very nice place on the island. As return guests we certainly didn't expect to get another one this year. Mark was always quick to respond to any questions we may have had during our visit. Overall I would highly recommend Miles Away to anyone looking for a very nice villa in a great location at a reasonable price. I was actually a little hesitant to write this because I selfishly don't want it to become too popular!
