We were fortunate to be able to return to Sunset Ridge Villas again in November. Great time of year to be there. Just before the season begins - warm weather and water, less people and local business gearing up for the season. NO MORE plunge pools. Courtyards are more open and the main pool is great let along the REALLY... More

The view is amazing and where else can you stay with a group of 7 and not be crowded. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They provided, a welcome package, (loved the rum), beach towels, chairs, coolers & everything else you can imagine. The only thing it needs to be equipped with is bug spray. The no-seeums are terrible!... More

St John (SJ) is a unique type of island that steals your heart. I have been to many islands from Bahamas to Grenada but fell in love with SJ. If you are middle class & on a budget and don't have to stay at The Ritz - Sunset Ridge is a great place to stay. It's affordable, clean & they... More

We are back at Sunset Ridge Villa for two weeks in May. The view is the best. With just six units it is very peacful and friendly. Water and weather is warm and less people. Great time to be back on St John.

We returned to Sunset Ridge (4/28-5/5) after several years to find that the new management company has done a terrific job in renovating the villas and property. Where else can you find a 2 building villa with pool and outstanding views for a reasonable price?! The units are clean and spacious. Beach chairs and towels are provided. Foliage has been... More

Date of stay: July 16-23, 2011. My review was posted in the wrong area. I must beg to differ with these recent reviews. Apparently, many people love these villas just to be on St. John, but I found my vacation to be just the opposite. We exchanged into Sunset Ridge for a week. We left after the first night! I...

This is a great place for a do it yourself vacation. As others have said it is not a resort. It is a collection of 6 condo-like villas. There is no air conditioning but you're at the top of the hill so you have constant breezes. You may get chilly at night, I did. Also remember that this is the... More

After few years of decline the homeowner's association has taken over the management of the villas, hired a new property manager and the evidence of these changes is evident to anyone who has been there before. New cabinetry, improved landscaping and views that where always spectacular have been opened up to all the units. With each unit boasting two buildings,... More

Great location! Staff couldn't be friendlier and even met us at the ferry to escort us to our condo. Located on top of the mountain, driving up requires a four wheel drive and is an adventure in and of itself. Pleasantly surprised with the private courtyard, amazing view and all the amenities. Even provided a cooler and beach chairs for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched atop Sunset Ridge on beautiful St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, are 6 lovely and quiet personal villas that take full advantage of their hilltop locale. The villas provide you with commanding views 180 degrees to the west. In the evening after a beautiful sunset, watch the lights of St Thomas flicker on or during the day watch the inter island traffic in Pillsbury Sound. But don't just take our word for it, view our video on the previous page. Each unit consists of two buildings with a private courtyard between them. On one side of the courtyard is the great house containing a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living rooms with a half bath and sleeping arrangements for 2 or 4 up stairs with a with a full bath. A fold out couch is available on the main floor to expand the possibilities for accommodations. A private master suite with a full bath is across the courtyard. The master suites are now air-conditioned for an additional fee. Televisions are in both the great house and master suite and each unit is equipped with its' own grill in the private courtyard. In addition there is a large 20' x 40' community pool with spectacular views of Cruz Bay, Pillsbury Sound and St. Thomas to the south and west. ... more   less

“No units have A/C, but they all have windows facing the ocean, so wind isn't a problem. Units A-C overlook St. Thomas, while units D-F look out over the Caribbean Sea.”
