Private beautiful stone home with the most incredible views of Cinnamon Bay and beyond. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the rainbows in the morning to the stargazing in the evening and everything in….


- Lisa C.

If you’re looking for a beautiful villa with gorgeous views and close to North shore beaches, and/or town, this is your place. This villa is better in person than the photos…..


- Linda P.

Our multigenerational family had a wonderful Christmas getaway to explore Valhalla Villa on St. John. We carefully researched videos, descriptions, photos, and VRBO website reviews, and were ecstatic to find that the online representation matched the reality upon our arrival.


- Michael R.

Just spent a week at Valhalla with a group of 13 celebrating my wife’s 60th and our 30th wedding anniversary. This was the best VRBO experience we’ve ever had – by far. The house is amazing. While the photos are very representative of the house itself, there is nothing like walking through the front door and experiencing the amazing views firsthand – simply breathtaking.
