Ristaba Villa is a spacious 6 bedroom home consisting of 4 bedroom main house with 2 bedroom cottage, just a few steps from the main house, dual security systems, pool, a/c in bedrooms, and views galore. Ristaba is in Chocolate Hole North, commanding views of 4 bays: from Hart Bay to the south, Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay to the west all the way to Cruz Bay to the north. On most days you can clearly see St. Croix and the islands of Puerto Rico as well as many numerous cays in between.

Ristaba has one of the largest pools on St. John (28x13x12) with plenty of floats and toys. Large shaded area, as well as full sun decks, with a wet bar, blender, frig and glassware.

With the 4 bedroom main house and additional cottage, Ristaba can accommodate from 2 - 12 people with complete comfort. The Cottage and main house can be rented together or the main house alone. There are two phone lines offering

fax or voice mail and high speed, wireless DSL access.

Ristaba has a wonderful Caribbean flavor with it's hand-carved teak cabinets, vanities, plantation chairs,

and grand mahogany dining table, mosaic tile tables and sea-colored tile countertops.

Art from throughout the Caribbean enhances the design.

The upside down floor-plan provides the most spectacular views from the Great Room on the upper level, and along the pool, while the bedrooms have lovely garden or pool views.

The living area has wonderful plantation chairs and love seats with a full entertainment center offering TV/DVD/VCR and surround sound stereo. Games for the kids and books for all ages are there for your pleasure.

The Dining area provides a hand carved teak table that comfortably seats 12. The Teak custom kitchen has all the major appliances (gas stove top with electric oven, full size Whirlpool frig with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker), all the glassware and dishware to feed large families, and many small touches which will make any chef feel at home. There is a Weber gas BBQ on the deck just outside the kitchen for easy access.

Outdoor dining or relaxing on the upper deck is easy and comfortable with sunsets all year long and huge views. Plenty of space for all your guests to spread out.

From every corner of the home the extensive gardens will delight your eyes...

with hummingbirds flocking to the firecracker bush, the rich bougainvillea and many other tropical varieties.

Master bedrooms have beautiful, handcrafted, mahogany bedsteads, dressers and accessories.

The two master suites are poolside with King beds and baths and outdoor garden showers.

Each room has privacy curtains, and a safe as well as split unit a/c.

Walls are solid concrete for privacy and all rooms access from the central foyer.

The two garden suites each with private bath can be made as a King or two twin beds (we have complete linens and bolsters for each) as well as have privacy curtains. The baths have indoor showers and a walkway from outside the bath around to the pool deck.

A short tiled path leads from the Living room, from garden view bedrooms and also from the pool to the cottage - very easy access and yet very private. The cottage can only be rented along with the main house (never separately).

The cottage offers another very nice sized, fully equipped kitchen, living/dining great room and a half bath upstairs. The living area has it's own cable TV/VCR and stereo. A separate phone line is also available. The large deck with more great views await you and your morning coffee or afternoon drinks.

The cottage lower level has 2 air-conditioned bedrooms: one with Queen and

one with two Twin beds (which can make into King) as well as shared full bath. Cottage views are enhanced by the lovely gardens surrounding the entire property.

Ristaba has been thoughtfully designed to fulfill your holiday dreams.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 3rd visit to the Ristaba Villa and we enjoyed it more then ever. Watching the fireworks on the 4th of July was spectacular from our deck. it was a magical night. The children as well as the adults have many great memories from our stay here.

Our whole family comes for a total of 18 people at two villas. We love the beaches and the beauty of St. John. We are all looking forward to our next trip back here to the Ristaba.
