Cloud Nine villa is a property owned by a very accommodating couple–Linda and Allen, who love to view sunsets and distant islands. No wonder this same view keeps visitors coming back. This 3-bedroom villa sits right at the top of a hill where you can enjoy the view of mountain peaks and some lights dancing at night from neighboring islands. It is fully air-conditioned and can accommodate 7 people. It also has a central courtyard, a pool, shaded gazebo, and covered walkways that connect the living room with the bedroom. You can take a quick trip to the shops and restaurants in Cruz Bay or drive north to hit the beach. Everything is easy to access from this villa because of its central location.
It is one of the most recommended places for honeymoons, intimate family gatherings, or a week-long catching up with friends. You can literally stay on their deck all-day long and get mesmerized with breathtaking views.
