Donald & Deborah Schnell have brought the experience of over forty years of Saint John living to the creation and decoration of their Villas. Donald & Deborah have made St. John their home since 1975 and have raised their three children – Abigail, Lucas & Michael – here. The family has expanded to three wonderful grandchildren—Gisella, Olivia and Thomas. Donald & Deborah combine elements of their trips to Italy and Europe with traditional, island Caribbean Villas for a uniquely perfect vacation experience. Donald’s Studio creates ceramic lighting and offers lighting, design & decorating consultation to all the finest resorts in the Caribbean, and he brings all these elements to their Villas. Originally from Michigan, Donald attended graduate school at the University of Chicago where Deborah was a pediatric nurse.

We had five couples vacationing together for a week. We planned a couple of outings, but spent most of the week just relaxing around the villa. Everything for a perfect vacation is right there! We enjoyed every second of our stay and recommend the Beach Villa for the views, house, pool, hot tub, beach, walk-out to the ocean, and terrific hosts.
