Its a decent enough place, however; traveling up that hill to Serendip is not for the faint of heart. The car rental guys made a point to tell us to stay far behind trucks going uphill and for good reason. Also, the high season rate is a bit outrageous considering location. Sorry but for over $2,000 USD I would expect...

Thank you for your feedback. St John is a mountainous island with steep hills. We agree that driving around our island roads can be challenging. Serendip's high elevation provides wonderful panoramic views that so many of our guests love. Our location also offers Serendip guests some of the most stunning sunsets you will find anywhere. St John can be an...

We stayed in the India room which is a studio condo on the ground level. It had a full kitchen, private bathroom and a spacious sleeping area and patio for dinning. We had such a great view that we didn't want to leave our condo. We ended up buying fresh fish and eating in two of the nights so that...

We stayed in Juliette for 3 nights and Echo for 3 nights ... both have a lovely ocean view from roomy, quiet porches. Would recommend the owner of Juliette consider the lighting ... the unit was dark and even more so when the a/c is on since you have to close the shutters which are not glass, therefore completely blocking...

The view is amazing, but it was the small things like a gallon of water in the refrigerator upon arrival, beach chairs provided, and Audrey recommending places on the map to visit and eat that made Serendip the perfect first-start for our St John vacation. I already miss waking up in the morning to the sounds of a rooster crowing,...

Pros: + The Manager (Audrey) is very accommodating and easy to communicate with, she picked up a USPS package we had sent to the Saint John Post Office prior to our arrival. And she had the India studio unit ready for us to check-in early at 10 a.m.! + Private parking spot for india unit + India studio unit is...

Easy to book with Aubrey. My husband and I stayed in the India studio for 3 nights. We had a parking spot right next door. The condo was perfect - great view, beautifully decorated, plenty of towels, kitchen with appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster, etc), cooler and chairs for the beach. Very close to the jeep rental and grocery store....

Serendip ( Hibiscus suite) was very homey with a nice kitchen and a magnificent view. You should know that the residence is high up on a sttep hill- makes for spectacular views, but you nearly always will need a cab ride up ( the walk down is not so bad). It is about 10 minutes from downtown- close to restaraunts,...

Summary: We would stay at this location again. The property is outside the busier Cruz Bay area so you can enjoy a quiet retreat yet can still walk into town for the night life or $5/person taxi. It’s on top of a hill so the breeze keeps it cooler. It has wonderful outdoor space to enjoy the views and weather....

My wife and I stayed in the India studio condo on the first floor the second week of January 2015. Serendip is very close to Cruz Bay and has a great view, although the view is probably even nicer from the units on the upper floors. The kitchen is well equipped, it has nice beach chairs and a cooler, and...

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
