Just got back from our 4th stay at the Serendip. This is the perfect place to stay in St. John: excellent location (close to town but quiet), good units, and affordable. They provide you with so many extras that make it possible to pack light. If they don't have it, you probably don't need it. Also, they have a new...

Serendip is all you need for great accommodations at an affordable price on St. John. We stayed in the Juliette studio the last week of May. The location is close to downtown yet quiet in a lush garden setting, the view of Cruz Bay from any patio is spectacular, the pool is refreshing, and the tempurpedic bed made me want...

We stayed in the India studio from May 8th to 13th and had a wonderful time. This studio was the perfect size for me and my husband. It had a king sized bed with a small but functional kitchen & dining area. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the essentials, as well as some condiments left over by previous...

My wife and I stayed here in May for our honeymoon. We stayed in the Coral room. It was perfect. Great location (you can walk to town, walking back is a bit more effort). The room was great - big area, awesome deck overlooking the bay and all the kitchen necessities. We wanted to move in. Friendly and helpful staff...

Thanks for the nice comments, Robert! Just wanted to let you know on June 1 we installed a WIFI Extender and now all of the units have excellent, strong signals. Thanks again for the feedback!

Stayed once again from 5/10 - 5/17 in Echo, a middle floor unit, a straight walk in from the parking lot. I won't repeat all I have said before, but the accolades continue to be well earned. Chai and Michelle were covering while Ashley was on vacation, but Hershey, her-cohost was there still to greet guests. Chai and Michelle showed...

We stayed in India, an efficiency apt. It was super clean, quiet, comfy bed, beach chairs, ac and/or ceiling fans. We were there in April and the fans were plenty. Kitchenette is stocked with essentials (coffee filters for machine, mayo, ketsup, salt & pepper, etc) which was very handy. Nice deck where we ate and enjoyed the great view of...

We stayed in the Coral Unit for our 'weddingmoon' on February 13-20. Everything was clean and comfortable. The view is gorgeous from the veranda! It was nice to have a kitchen to make dinners because eating on the island can get very expensive. Ashley was very helpful when we had any questions about getting around the island. Location is pretty...

My husband and I went to St. John March 4 - 11, 2013. We researched a number of places to stay, and decided to go to Serendip. We are so glad we did! It was the perfect place for us, and truly was a beautiful place to be. It was close enough to town, yet far enough to be peaceful....

Stayed in the Delta unit again, and everything was great. Love the location of Serendip, the beautiful views, the comfortable units. The manager Ashley does a terrific job and made us feel very welcome. I used the pool this visit, which was a nice late afternoon treat. Will definitely stay at Serendip on my next trip back to St. John.

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
