Breathtaking views, cool Caribbean breezes and laid-back island living is what it is all about. This is your very own tropical paradise. A place to slow down life and get back to nature ... with all the amenities of home. Stone paths meander through flowering gardens surrounding this lovely property. The villa is located above and directly in the middle of a beautiful beach, giving it a commanding unobstructed vantage point of the water, where you can watch resident sea turtles and sail boats passing by, while relaxing on the deck or by the pool.

This is your very own tropical paradise. A place to slow down life and get back to nature ... with all the amenities of home. Stone paths meander through flowering gardens surrounding this lovely property. The villa is located above and directly in the middle of a beautiful beach, giving it a commanding unobstructed vantage point of the water, where you can watch resident sea turtles and sail boats passing by, while relaxing on the deck or by the pool. Because the property (one of the few on St John) faces directly west, you will enjoy a magnificent view of Coral Bay, with a spectacular nightly light show of a kaleidoscope of colors, including oranges, pinks, purples, yellows and blues, dancing off the water and surrounding mountains, that guests have described as the most amazing sunset views. This hidden East End gem is secluded, undeveloped, quiet and how St John was many years ago, vastly different from crowded and noisy Cruz Bay or even the West side of Coral Bay. Perfect for nature lovers and those seeking solitude. Here, you will see wild donkeys, goats, sheep, deer, mongoose, iguana, and many varieties of birds and lizards.. The 180 degree ocean and mountain views from the large deck and each room are as good as it gets, making this a romantic place to stay for a couple or a wonderful setting to relax as a family during your well deserved vacation. It's hard to imagine a more enchanting location. Just a 5 - 10 minute walk away is a semi-private beach with some of the best snorkeling on the island. Because it is semi-private, often you will be the only people on the beach and can enjoy the beach in solitude. Another great beach with soft white sand is just a 5 minute further walk away. Finally, 2 more beaches (both good for snorkeling) are within an easy 5 minute drive. Because many beaches on the island are not swimmable or accessible, there simply is nowhere else on the island where so many fine beaches are so close by your accommodations. We provide all that you will need to enjoy the fabulous water: snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler and 2 kayaks. The kayaks will be your best way to explore the pristine reefs and beautiful coves in Coral Bay. We'll tell you the best restaurants, trails and sites that you will want to see, so that you get the most out of your holiday. So mark your calendar and pack your bags, it's vacation time. Villa caretakers live nearby to assist you in any way they can to make this the vacation of your dreams. NOTE: This is a non-smoking property. There is no smoking inside or outside, anywhere on the property. Due to the steep hillside location, not appropriate for children under age 5.More
