July 2013
“Beautiful, secluded, well stocked, well maintained”
I can’t say enough about how much we loved this property. The views from the balconies are outstanding, the pool and hot tub were spotless and well maintained. The villa is very well stocked and we did not need to purchase anything except our own food. The kitchen looks out on the water. The rental company was fantastic. After bringing us up to the villa, KD made sure that we knew where everything was on the island to get us started. The refrigerator was stocked with fruit and snacks, and there was a bottle of wine provided on arrival. Flowers in vases everywhere. There was a threat of a tropical storm when we were there, and KD called to make sure that we were ok, and sent someone to take down the umbrella at the pool just in case. The villa is about 5 minutes outside of town, in a gated community of three homes. Make sure to rent a Jeep to go up the big hills to the villa.

There are four bedrooms in the villa, two in the main house, and two in the pod outside. We stayedin the two in the pod, better views and access to the pool. There were abundant beach towels available for use, along with chairs to bring to the beach. We wish that we could stay here longer!

June 12 thru 19, 2011
The Villa called Argonauta was even more beautiful than the pictures on the Web. We were a little hesitant, we have never rented a house at St. John, we usually have stayed at Caneel Bay but we were taking the family and were a party of 7, so we decided to rent a Villa. It was perfect. The views were fantistic, the house was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Although seemingly in it’s own little world, the house is only 6/10 of a mile from town, which made everything readily available. And naturally, on St. John, all roads lead to one beautiful beach after another.
Jackie Harrison (Vacation Vistas, Inc) was so wonderfully responsive to our every little need. Even down to having the keys to the rental cars in her pocket at 10 P.M. after our plane was delayed in Charlotte for 6 hours. Tired and hungry, we were welcomed to Argonauta with fruit, cheese and wine.
When the sun came up the next morning, it was truly like waking up in Paradise.
Lisa and her staff were unbelievably available to us, day and night. Being thoroughly knowledgeable of the Island, they were very helpful with every detail.
Our vacation was wonderful beyond words.

We have stayed in Argonauta multiple times. LOVE the house!!! We stayed there last in April 2010 for 11 days (4 couples). It has whole house A/C, which we used the whole time. The sun really shines into the living/dining/kitchen areas and can get quite hot depending on the time of year.

The two bedrooms in the pod definitely have the best views, but no one complained about their bedroom during our stay. How much time do you really spend in the bedroom anyway?! The beds are very comfortable.

The kitchen is big and we could all be in the kitchen area without being crowded. We cooked most of our meals and the huge counter space made it easy to do prep work. Wonderful covered deck space for for dining and watching the sunset. Also plenty of space around the pool. There is a bar near the pool with a mini frig which we made use of. There is a 1/2 bath off the pool deck which is convenient as well as a washer & dryer for your use. We pack very light so having the W&D is a big plus.
IMO you can’t go wrong with Argonauta and Lisa is easy to work with.

April 22 – May 2, 2010
Argonauta is our FAVORITE villa on St John. Have stayed there multiple times and it never disappoints. This year hubby & I invited 2 other couples who had never been to St John. They fell in love with STJ and could not have been happier with the accommodations. Absolutely everything was perfect. Will stay there again and again.

One of the girls (OK, we’re in our 50’s…LOL) is an artist. She took her watercolors and spent most mornings painting different views from the decks and walkways. She also took many photos and surprised us with a photo album a week or so after the trip to remember it. I suspect they will be going with us next year!!! Can’t wait!!!

It’s been awhile since last visited this stunning St. John island…and..the most memorable Villa…”Argonauta” in 2002,,They have updated and it’s even more gorgeous from when I remembered driving down the driveway and in total “awe”…pinch me..was our reaction when first vieweing Argonauta…I see..it’s even more awe inspiring…
The best….

I see they added a hot tub..All I can say..this Villa, you can’t beat the privacy..the views “stunning”..a 5 star villa..

I hope one day to return…Gorgeous villa..

I’d like to be a “rep” for these owners in the states for I would hightly recommend it…wouldn’t ever stay anywhere else..location,location,location..

This “villa” has it all…They take pride in their home and once there, one doesn’t want to leave…it’s breathtaking…

This villa was so wonderful that I almost don’t want to post a review for fear that next time we want to rent it, it will be booked.

First, Vacation Vistas is amazing to deal with! This was our second time renting from them with other companies in between, and I definitely like dealing with Lisa and KD. One of the things I like about renting from Vacation Vistas is that they don’t clear out everything previous renters left behind so be sure to check what’s stocked already before heading to the store (including liquor).

We used all four of the bedrooms with our group. The two in the pod that are not connected to the house are probably my favorites. The one on the main floor of the house has to share a bathroom with anyone that doesn’t want to go back to their rooms which wasn’t really a problem for our group.

It was nice to have a/c in the main house. That was definitely a luxury that we did use as we were there in June.

The pool was smaller than all of the pools we have had at other villas but it was good enough for our purposes as we mainly used it to hang out in and have drinks while enjoying the beautiful views.

Speaking of views…the views are excellent from Argonauta. It faces out towards St. Thomas and is at the point so you don’t have a bunch villas between you and the water. That was one of the things I really liked about it’s location.

The other thing I REALLY liked is that it is so close to town yet doesn’t feel that way at all. It feels very remote but you are in town in no time at all.

The only downfall in my opinion was the driveway. There really isn’t room to turn around a car so whenever we returned to the villa, we carefully backed down the driveway.

I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Those of us that have been to St. John several times and have even stayed in a luxury villa in Catherineburg voted it our favorite villa because of all of the above mentioned things.

Hi Folks!
I am looking for a villa that has 3 king/queen beds (each with it’s own bath), air in the bedrooms, a pool, a hot tub, and around the Choc. Hole area or North Shore. Anyone have any suggestions?

Try Argonauta. www.vacationvistas.comWe stayed at Argo in May and loved it! 4 bedrooms, all king with private bath and AC. The whole house actually has AC. Pool, hot tub, wet bar and half bath by pool. Awesome views. We had three couples and this villa was perfect. Lisa at Vacation Vistas is a pleasure to work with too!

Bug – I can second Argonauta as it has been our favorite villa so far and our favorite location.
The main house has full a/c as do all of the bedrooms. The views are unobstructed and our favorite on that side of the island. They face out towards STT, and it’s out on the point. It is soooo close to town, yet you do not feel that way because there are not alot of villas around you.
If you have any questions or want to know more, pm me.

p.s. we liked it better than Hakuna Matata on the North Shore and that says alot.

Today is our first day back from Argonauta (so sad!). Argonauta is awesome – pool, hot tub and great sunset views. The full AC was nice although I think it spoiled the newbies in our group. We highly recommend Argo – we rented through Lisa at Vacation Vistas.

We have stayed in Argonauta 5 or 6 times. It’s our favorite house on St. John !!! We reserve it a year in advance to get the time we want. (we stay for 10 or 11 days).

The main house has the master BR & Loft. Each floor has a bathroom. The stairs to the loft is a spiral staircase. Dangerous for small children or drunks in my opinion.
The upper BR in the “pod” has a regular entrance door on the same level as the main house. It also has a screened covered deck area with a beautiful view but no stairs to pool level and of course a full bath. The lower level BR entrance is sliding glass doors on the pool level ( and full bath).

All BR’s have king size beds and A/C. There is a small safe in the upper pod BR.
Besides the pool, there is also a hot tub, washer & dryer, 1/2 bath and wet bar.
The view is one of the best on St. John. Rainbows in the mornings and beautiful sunsets over St. Thomas at night.

There are screens in all the windows and we have never had a problem with bugs. Just a little lizard from time to time.

Argonauta is a 4 bedroom villa and has spectacular views. It has views of St. Thomas, on a clear night you can see St. Croix. The furnishing are nice. We rented through Vacation Vistas, specifically, Jackie Harrison, who is so helpful. The beds are so comfortable with spectacular views. It has a private pool and spa as well as a wet bar. Stayed there the past two years and will be staying there May 2006! Arlene

Argonuata is a lovely 4-bedroom house with unobstructed views over Pillsbury Sound to St. Thomas. The kitchen is recently updated with granite counters, bar stool seating, a gas stove, and a large, well powered fridge.
Argonauta is surrounded be expansive decking, all covered and outfitted with outdoor fans. Generous seating is available in multiple locations on the deck–from chairs to hammocks.
The pool area is equipped with a wet bar, stereo, and lots of shady umbrellas. Updated laundry facilities are on pool level.
Each bedroom is different. In the main pod, there are two: one bedroom is reached via a spiral staircase. There is a nice view and a full bath if you can handle the stairs (very steep!). The second bedroom (also with full bath) is behind the kitchen, with no view, but opens directly onto the main deck, so is best for anyone in your party with mobility issues. **new screened doorway gives a bit of view and glass mirrored closets make it much brighter**
The best bedroom is in the seperate “sleeping” pod, across the way from the main living pod. This bedroom has two sides of glass doors overlooking Pillsbury Sound and Great Cruz Bay, as well as wrap around decking. A full bath (with ocean views from the shower) is behind this bedroom. A fourth bedroom is below this bedroom, opening directly onto pool level.
Argonauta is beautifully landscaped, with multiple mature flowering plants/trees. There’s also lots of privacy. It’s a wonderful villa, you will definitely enjoy yourself if you stay here. liamsaunt
