Good Morning.

A group of 12 college friends (from a long time ago; we're old now.) are looking for a six-bedroom Villa on St. John for rent in February of 2025. We're looking for a hot tub with a view of the night sky. If not that, a pool with a view of the night sky. (There's a theme here.) Other than that, the requirements are few, up to $25k for the week. Is there anything out there that VRBO doesn't show? TIA.

I don't have any specific suggestions for you. However, just a question-- why aren't you looking at villa rental sites, not just VRBO?? Many large villa owners don't want to handle things themselves. If I were going to spend that kind of money, I would want to have someone not affiliated with the villa that could answer questions for me, that hopefully has even seen the property in question.

Best wishes.

Check out https://stjohn-villarentals.com/ - they list 15 6-bedroom villas.

Most villa management companies and villa owners shy away from VRBO due to the steep fees.

Cheers, RickG

Reach out to -

https://www.cateredto.com/?gad_source=1#!/

Or

https://blueskyluxurytravels.com/

The owner of the latter lived on STJ and reps large villas.

Personally, I would never rent $25,000 over vbro. I would want a well established on island rental agency or experienced agent.

Thank you very much. I appreciate those leads.

This is all the exact information I was looking for. I've never searched for such a large villa, and VRBO was my only real source for smaller ones.

I second Rick’s recommendation. While we are BVI based sailors, whenever we stay on STJ (usually once per year) we use the referenced website. Might also want to check out Calichi - you could rent several of their two bedroom villas. Incredible views of almost the entire BVI island chain, gorgeous common infinity pool, and hot tub.

I had friends stay at Rotunda once. Spent the night there with them. It is pretty spectacular.

We're planning a BVI sailing trip for 3 of the couples the week prior to STJ. Thanks for the link!

Another good resource, not sure I saw this posted. Have rented with them several times.
