The interiors offer custom mahogany built-in furniture and cabinets, granite countertops, native stonework and other architectural details that reflect the quality and style designed into this lovely villa.
Latitude's layout encourages easy conversation and movement between the pool, deck, outdoor covered areas and great room-really indoor/outdoor living and dining. The expansive great room is appropriate for formal entertaining or just simple casual living. A graceful marble-top dining table seats 8 guests.
The home features three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. All of the bedrooms have air-conditioning, en-suite baths and large windows with grand views. All three en-suite baths have double sink vanities, walk in showers and double mahogany closets.
The master suite has a queen sized bed and is decorated with bright colors. It offers expansive views of Klein Bay and French doors open directly onto the poolside deck. The large shower in the master bath has two showerheads and it even has a view.
A second bedroom is located west of the pool and outdoor dining area and features a queen sized bed. The third bedroom (king or twins-guest's option) is located on the second floor and has its own circular deck area.
An open-air gazebo provides a haven where the views, privacy and peace and quiet are unparalleled. Indeed, guests can gaze at the pelicans and ever present surf that serve as gentle reminders of just how fine life is at Klein Bay.
A sparkling private swimming pool completes the fantasy.
The home is located just a one-minute walk from the secluded cobble beach below that offers exceptional snorkeling on either side of the protected bay where the rocks and coral reefs harbor a colorful array of fish.

Latitude on the isle of St. John was very simply the most special place that I have been. It is tucked away from the bustle of Cruz Bay (if you can call it that in such a tranquil place) on what comes to seem like your own private cove. We had access to a fabulous rock beach where we laid out and snorkeled and the fine restaurants and rum of Cruz Bay is just a five minute drive from the house. The house is prepared in such a way that you could hardly find something to find fault with, but in the one instance in which we needed some direction, they had a friendly and knowledgeable fellow out to us with the solution in under half an hour.
First time to St. John, Usvi. Beautiful, fragile island. Have traveled throughout the Caribbean. Latitude was a special place to stay for us. There were three of us so there was more room than needed, but luxurious having plenty of space to relax. House was in great condition and well represented by photos. Had more than enough to support us during the week with cookware, dishes, etc. Loved the bedrooms and waking to see the beautiful unobstructed view daily. If you want peace and quiet - this house is it. You don't need to leave to see anything else on St. John.
The location of the house is perfect. Great access to a beautiful rocky beach and good snorkeling! The house was stocked with everything you could want and more! Definitely a baker's kitchen, but it did get very warm inside.
Latitude is a beautiful villa, extremely well furnished with everything necessary for preparing elaborate meals and entertaining guests. The view is over the water is spectacular. In summary, this is an outstanding, well-managed property.
We loved this villa for our family of 4 (2 teenagers 14 & 15). Everything we needed was right there and having Klein Bay to snorkel in was fantastic! Right there in Klein Bay we swam with Spotted Eagle Rays and there was a really beautiful Coral Reef right there that we snorkeled almost every day. Cruz bay and the North Shore beaches were an easy drive from the house. The neighborhood was top notch! This is a great house!!! I would recommend this to a family/a couples vacation/honeymoon spot. We were very happy there! We will be returning!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Latitude. Latitude is a very spacious well appointed house with great views. We really were at the house more than is normal, as one of our kids had a stomach bug-- and it was just a nice, comfortable place to while away the day. You can walk down to a cobble beach, which has great snorkeling, or relax in the pool/hot tub. The house is a bit of a drive to the North shore beaches, and, can be tricky to find at night, esp. at first. But all in all, we would recommend, and would return to in the future.
We have stayed at several homes on St John and without a doubt Latitude is one of our most pleasant experiences. For a family that only requires a 3 bedroom home I would definitely recommend Latitude. Comfortable, value priced with views that are unbelievable. And the pool was a nice surprise as it is large and deep enough to even swim laps. We had several wonderful dinners at the house as the kitchen and dining area is well appointed. We will definitely come back.
I truly love St John, and have been lucky enough to visit every year for the past 20 yrs. Latitude is the perfect villa, is beautifully situated and very serene.
Villa Latitude was the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Everything about the villa was perfect. The view from the deck overlooking the pool and Klein Bay was magnificent. Being able to hear the waves was incredibly relaxing. We loved the "overlook" at the top of the house. It was a very convenient location: close to town yet extremely quiet and peaceful. We loved the open, airy and spacious feel of the villa. Sitting in the hot tub at night watching the stars was an experience I will long remember. Outdoor shower was nice to have. All of the furnishings in the villa were both beautiful and comfortable. I hope to return to St. John and Villa Latitude many times.
Our visit to St. John was wonderful! The photos on the website of our villa did not do it justice and the view was spectacular! The villa was complete with everything from dining and island information to Band aids and beach towels; they had it all covered. Property management was informative, flexibly and helpful, making our vacation that much more enjoyable. The four of us all agreed that we would come back and bring our friends!
