We have stayed in Serendip in multiple occasions. Always at the Gecko, the apartment is cozy and has a Caribbean feel to it. The A/C always works well and the apartment has all the require amenities to have a marvelous time. Be aware that you are staying in an apartment, so do not expect hotel amenities. It has a great...

Upon checking in, I could tell off the bat that they take great pride in their complex. The managers live on site, are very welcoming, and make you feel right at home. We stayed in the Gecko, awesome view! This place is huge! It has that island charm! A large bedroom with a very comfy king size mattress. The kitchen... More

The condo is very cozy and personable with cute decorations everywhere. Love the huge balcony and well equipped kitchenette. It is also very conveniently located. The manager Todd made a big difference too. He gave us a very thorough orientation and all his recommendations for beaches (Maho Bay is indeed the best), restaurants, activities are first notch. We had an... More

Todd was so nice and very helpful. We used two units during our short stay and he moved all of our luggage for us while we were out. Our trip was primarily to help our son make his move to the island and Serendip provided everything we needed. Lovely outdoor space and the bed(s) were comfortable.

My husband and I recently just stayed at the Juliette studio here. Our place was just perfect for two people. It had everything we needed including beach towels, a cooler, fun noodles, and beach chairs. The view from the studio apartment was beautiful.

We stayed in the Coral unit of Serendip the week of February 22nd and the pictures on the website of the gorgeous view from the veranda do not do it justice-absolutely beautiful. The veranda is large-12' by 25' perhaps wider. We started every morning there and ended every evening watching the sunset and the lights coming on in St. Thomas.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled within a lush, tropical setting on two acres with ocean views to Cruz Bay, our one-bedroom and studio condos at Serendip Vacation Condos are being continually upgraded inside and out. We are an intimate complex of only 10 units in a quiet residential area of St. John. Each of the 8 one-bedroom and 2 studio condos have a fully-equipped kitchen, AC, cable, and large covered veranda with ocean views. The studio units have an maximum occupancy of 2 guests. Our one-bedroom units have a maximum occupancy of 4 guests, with NO additional 'per person' fees! The guest laundry facilities are a great added value for small families or the budget friendly traveler, and we also have beach towels, beach chairs & even a cooler for your memorable days on our beautiful USVI National Park beaches. One of our favorite features is the large covered veranda that extends the length of the entire condo and is a wonderful place for dining, reading a book or watching the sunset. The condo complex also has a lovely pool with a seating area, chaise lounges, and BBQ grill. Review our photos and let us know which unit you are interested in reserving when you submit an inquiry. This will allow us to provide an accurate rate and more details about the specific unit. Serendip is one of the best St John vacation values on the island. We look forward to having you as our guest. ... more   less
