Close to town, yet worlds away, Magic View will charm you with its island living design - separate pavilions for the great room, the kitchen and the bedroom suites - all connected by the expansive deck, where you will feel like you are walking in a beautiful dream world. Air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room, a small pool and extensive gardens - at Magic View be aware - you will be tempted to come back soon!
Cruz Bay is the charming town on the west side of St. John where the ferry arrives, with many restaurants, shops, galleries, excursion companies, etc. The South Shore area extends to Reef Bay, passing Great Cruz Bay, Chocolate Hole, Rendezvous Bay & Fish Bay along the way. It is home to the Westin Resort & both sandy/coral locals beaches

The views from this villa are truly incredible---one of our favorite times of day was watching the sunset outside, sipping cocktails on the deck, while listening to our favorite music....inside, the amenities are superb...the villa comes complete with everything you would need for cooking in or preparing a picnic on a beach.....the beds and furniture were very comfortable--- and the master bath with its bamboo shower and rock interior belong in an issue of "Architectural Digest"! While a jeep rental is essential, the villa is located within easy reach of downtown Cruz Bay---we recommend "Magic" very highly...would come back again in a heartbeat!!
We had an amazing vacation with our sister and brother-in-law. This is our second time coming to St. John, the last being March 2002. I must say this vacation was better! Last time we stayed in another villa but the views here are better and your home had everything we needed and more. the weather was great- several rain showers mostly at night. We ate a great restaurants-the Fatty Crab, The Equator, Waterfront Bistro, Ocean Grill and Morgan's MangoThank you again for your kind hospitality- we'll be back!
This was our tenth trip to our beloved island of St. John- and magic View is hands down the BEST place we have ever stayed. Our trip was, once again, spectacular with glorious beach days. cocktails and amazing dinners ( Sweet Plantains blew us away!) We completely relaxed and enjoyed poolside reading, star gazing, and the cool breezes. This is a very special place in St. John- Truly magic- and like nowhere else
This was our 2nd visit to St. John- our favorite island- and we greatly enjoyed staying at Magic View. My husband is on a two week leave from Afghanistan and we were able to relax here and enjoy our favorite beach -Gibney, each other's company, the peace and quiet, and beautiful views from the villas decks. thanks for sharing with us!
had a wonderful time here and are sorry that it's over. we got married on the beach at Trunk Bay on 6/15 at sunset- 5 years to the day after we met. we saw lots of interesting animals in the water and on land. Octopus, barracudas, sting rays, flounder, grouper, starfish all while snorkeling. Mongoose, donkeys, lizards, hummingbirds, deer, skinny cats, goats, pigs, and we even saw a deer with a big rack walking through the back yard here at Magic View one evening. The view here is fantastic and the island is too.
We had a wonderful time here at Magic View and on St. John. Amazing snorkeling at Francis Bay, the best food at Rhumb Lines and Cafe Roma. Took a very hot sweaty hike out to Solomon Bay- well worth it to see this beautiful private little beach. Thanks to whoever left behind the after bite sting relief, it came in very useful as one of us ( me) apparently is very tasty to the local bugs and sand flies! Oh well, that's island life and a small price to pay to be in such an amazing playground. Sadly we have to go home but we will take with us great photos and unforgettable memories.
Would have loved a set of binoculars to see our feathered visitors better and the lizards! The beach chairs were so awesome and the grill extra special1 Absolutely the best vacation and we will defiantly be back- we know where everything is now plus there are so many more amazing restaurants and people to meet.
We've been trying for the past week to come up with words to describe our adventures experiences and views- guess we've decided there are none. The beauty and radiance of the island and this home is beyond words. The weather has been perfect, the views spectacular, the people warm and engaging and the comfort and "Magic" views from your home- majestic! Your home is beautiful and cozy, and did I mention the View?!
I would recommend your services to anyone going to St. John Thank you
This was our first time traveling to the US Virgin Islands. The house was "Magic" and the view was even better! It was an easy drive to Cruz Bay and the beaches. We will definitely be back!!
