Wonderful, spacious and very accommodating villa. WE loved the location which is walking distance to Cruz Bay. This was our second time here renting this villa. We would definitely come back.

We loved everything about the Penthouse. Amenities and supplies were very good. We usually stay at Grande Bay, so the walk was a bit more strenuous - everything else was very comparable. Thank you!
Stunning Views

We are thrilled with our experience here. The villa was perfect for our two families, especially with 3 full baths. It was well equipped with the essentials, including a cooler we used every day for our beach trips. The views from both patios were perfect for morning coffee, and particularly the sunsets. The villa was super convenient to the grocery store, and to restaurants in Cruz Bay. A great launching point to any of the beaches or hiking trails. I highly recommend a four wheel drive car - and book it as soon as you book the house. So much fun. Thank you for having us and we’re hoping to be back next year!!!

What a fabulous vacation spot! We loved the location and the space of the unit for our four adult-ish children. Quiet, clean and well maintained unit. The property managers were quick to respond to our need for additional beach chairs. Also, when our flights were canceled by JetBlue the managers were able to work with us to extend the back end of our stay to calvage some of the vacation.

This is our 2nd time staying in The Penthouse and it was amazing. Everything was clean, the air felt great. Destination St. John Rentals were very accommodating to our needs. The place is fully stocked including beach towels, chairs & cooler. Plenty of extra towels and extra bed sheets. Once again, our trip was very memorable. We will be back for sure.
What do you mean by booking?

Are we talking about the process of all of the rental booking and support or the actual villa itself?
We Highly Recommend Destination St. John!

We booked The Penthouse at Palm Terrace through Destination St. John for our family vacation and couldn't have been more pleased! The staff at Destination St. John were very helpful, friendly and so easy to work with. The Penthouse was terrific - very spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean. The location is perfect. We walked to town most nights for dinner - stopping along the way to catch the amazing sunsets at Frank Bay. We spent our days at the beaches and hiking the trails - returning to the condo late in the day to enjoy the cool AC. We loved every minute of our trip and we can't wait to return!

We had a fabulous time. Everything was beautiful, clean, well stocked. Easy walk to downtown. Beautiful view. Great balcony. Perfect vacation with our adult children. Every bedroom had its own bathroom. Very private.

Spent 8 days in the Penthouse at Palm Terrace with our adult family. It was wonderful. Great location. Great view. Well stocked kitchen. Spacious rooms. Clean. Bedrooms situated so everyone had their privacy. Comfortable. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.

We were very pleased with the Penthouse at Palm Terrace. It is spacious and well stocked. We arrived thirsty and hungry and found a lovely basket of snacks and treats from the rental company - very nice touch. Bedrooms are well spaced for privacy, kitchen and living room room nice and bright and the outdoor space was perfect. We walked to and from town every night and although it's a little hilly it was very manageable and safe - even with kids. I would highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay there again.

We had a great time staying at the Palm Terrace units! Being so close to town was a very good plus. We discovered most of the beaches and snorkeling spots and enjoyed the hospitality.
Posted: Aug 11, 2015
We had a great time in St John and loved staying at the Penthouse at Palm Terrace. It is a short walk to town (very short) so we would get up every morning and walk to town for breakfast and strolling. It was so peaceful. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. All the linens and furniture appeared to be new. We will be back
Posted: Jul 27, 2015
My wife, son and I stayed at the Penthouse with my parents and were very impressed with the condo and the property. It is just a short distance from town and a quick walk to a great snorkel spot. The unit is large, very nice and had everything we needed - the views from the balconies are awesome.

We spent a week at "the Penthouse" unit at Palm Terrace Villas with family and found it to be very clean, comfortable, spacious and a great value for a luxury condo. The property is quiet, well-kept and the unit has two nice balconies with great views of the Caribbean as well as a unique salt water pond. Only a short walk to town and the ferry dock. I definitely recommend this condo to friends and plan to go back soon!
Posted: Jul 23, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the Palm Terrace Penthouse so much!!!!!! Those were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! Wonderful accommodations and plenty of room. Would definitely go back!!!!!

This was my families third ( and not last) time staying at Palm Terrace. Can't beat the location. Minutes from town but, quiet at night and beautiful views of Pillsbury Sound. Rainbows over St. Thomas everyday! The condo is well equipped and spacious. I can't wait to return!

Our condo rental in Palm Terrace through Destination St. John was outstanding! We were met at the ferry, dropped off at our rental car agency, then escorted to our condo. Eric gave us the run down on how to navigate our stay on St. John and then showed us the courtesy lunch that Destination St. John provided from a local deli. The condo was out of this world! There is absolutely nothing more we could have asked for. It was nicely decorated, comfortable, well-equipped (including the kitchen) and roomy. It was within walking distance of Cruz Bay, which was a tremendous advantage since parking is such a problem. Coming back to this condo after a day of snorkeling was a perfect end to a perfect day.

Great space & views! Grounds are well maintained. Convenient location to Cruz Bay. Loved our stay!
Posted: Jul 15, 2014
The accommodations were superior with ample space and amenities to meet the needs of our large group. Our party of 13 actually occupied two condominiums with enough bedrooms and bath facilities to satisfy everyone...including the bride and groom! The location was perfect with easy access to the shops and beaches surrounding the Cruz Bay area. If you plan to visit this area, be prepared for a good bit of physical activity as the hills around the town (and throughout the island) demand a good bit of endurance and ability to climb and descend steep inclines. We all would re-visit this island and these condominiums without hesitation. By the way, the wedding was perfect.

Another awesome stay on St. John - our 4th time coming to this amazing place! The condo is great and a close proximity to town - we highly recommend. Our favorite beach is Cinnamon and snorkeling is awesome at Waterlemon. Beach Bar has great live music!

We had an amazing time in St. John. Destination St.John was amazing! The condo was amazing! Better than the pictures depict it to be. It is the perfect location, walking distance to town (so we could get our coffee in the morning) and was very accessible to all of the roads that lead out to the various beaches. Destination St. John left a wonderful gift basket in the fridge which made us feel very welcome. We plan to return to St. John and would certainly book our trip through Destination St. John again!

Another amazing visit in St. John - I love walking around the town and hiking to different beaches. This condo is incredible and a great place to come "home" to after a long day at the beach!
Posted: Apr 2, 2021
My wife and I have made many trips to St John over the last 20 years. We have used several different agencies and also booked directly from villa owners. One thing we have come to expect is the island moves at a different pace than the mainland. However, the team at Destination St John turned that expectation upside down on our most recent visit. We decided to use our grill one night but discovered it was out of gas. They delivered a full tank the next morning! This is just one example. All interaction with them was prompt and courteous from initial booking to checkout. We will definitely be using them for future visits.

Destination St. John was top notch at helping us out with needs, questions and concerns. Easy and fast communication and transactions. What a surprise to find a welcome basket with delicious snacks - great after a long travel day!

...The staff at Destination St. John were very nice, accommodating, and quick to respond to our (literally) last minute request. They had the villa cleaned & ready the next day, with a staff member ready to meet us & show us to the villa...they even put a very nice welcome basket of food/snacks in the refrigerator. Another villa rental company sent me a rude email saying they were too busy to schedule a cleaning service...I'm so glad we stayed with DSJ...Great service!...I plan to use them exclusively in the future.

...Destination St John was excellent to work with. We enjoyed the welcome basket after a very long day of travel.

...The Destination St. John website was very informative and well put together, we knew exactly what to expect and couldn't wait to get there.
Posted: May 16, 2014
...Hope to return someday and visit the beautiful island again. And we would contact Destination St. John for accomodations again.

...We've been using Destination St. John for the last 6 years for villas and couldn't be more pleased....This Company is the BEST and so are all their employees, they take care of any need/question you may have 24/7.
