Close to Cruz Bay but far enough away to enjoy a peaceful vacation away from the hustle and bustle and noise! Beautiful view and very comfortable! Todd, the manager was very helpful and knowledgable for car rentals and other points of interest!

My wife and I have been coming here for four years now. Serendip is affordable and far enough away from the downtown to offer a quiet lodging which is spacious and comfortable. The units offer a kitchen with stove, oven and refrigerator as well as a community outdoor grill by the pool. These features, combined with the availability of three... More

The managers are wonderful, warm, friendly and very helpful. They keep Serendip clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Gecko condo which has an incredible view from the deck, living room, and kitchen/ dining area. Our bed was very comfortable. We did not rent a car at first so we walked into town and took a taxi back, for $5/person.... More

We were so lucky to have been told about these condo villas overlooking Cruz Bay. We stayed at the Alpha Unit which had fabulous views of Cruz bay from a huge covered lanai. It also doesn't make you climb steps to get into it. It had a nice private bedroom and two bolster beds in the family room that served... More

The Serendip is a beautiful place, new, well-equipped, and very well cared for. The manager Todd was very friendly and helpful. We loved feeding the bananaquit birds and watching them from the patio. We stayed 3 places on our trip (the other 2 in St. Thomas) and we liked the Serendip the best.

Very nice, helpful manager. We stayed in the hibiscus unit. It hada great view of cruz bay, and st. Thomas. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and had high speed wifi. I would definitely stay at Serendip again.

this was my 5th stay at Serendip and it never fails me. the new manager, Todd & Brenda were very accommodating. Our unit was ready & waiting for us when we arrived. the grounds were neatly manicured. Even though all the units were full, it was very quiet and those guests we did meet, were very friendly.

We stayed a wonderful week in the India suite at the Serendip. Let me start by saying that Brenda and Tod were above and beyond anything we ever could have expected. We arrived in the early evening in a driving rain storm. They suggested we have dinner in town and they would pick us up when we were ready. They... More

I give the Serendip an A+ for location and for service. Our vacation started with a very stressful and delayed flight to St. Thomas. We did not reach St. John until 10 pm when the Jeep rental place was closed. I called the property manager Todd and his wife in distress. They calmed me down and told me not to... More

Just got back from a trip to St. John and it was as good as it has ever been. Part of the reason is that the new management team at The Serendip is absolutely outstanding.

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
