Villa Description

This charming and romantic mountain retreat is perched high above Coral Bay Harbor,  overlooking the turquoise Caribbean waters of the Sir Francis Drake channel, and nestled among the treetops of the lush Bordeaux forest.  Built and decorated by one of St. John's own artists and her husband, the cottage has a creative and relaxing feel that you'll find refreshing. The house is filled with beautiful arts and crafts made by local artists and surrounded by a tropical garden and lush forest.

Sea Cottage is a newly built studio with an open floor plan and airy vaulted ceilings.  The house has a wonderful wrap-around covered deck for relaxing and enjoying peace, privacy and the outstanding view. You will have a fully equipped kitchen, lovely bath with garden shower, plus all the amenities you might need. 

This private getaway is accessed by means of a comfortable descent through the tropical garden. It is amply cooled by ceiling fans and tradewind breezes so there is never any need for air conditioning.

The cottage is just a 10 minute drive to the world famous North Shore beaches and less than 15 minutes from the shops and restaurants of beautiful Coral Bay or the ferry dock at Cruz Bay.  The cottage can be reached by way of the paved and level Bordeaux Mt. Road which winds through the lush and fragrant bay rum forest.

For those who wish to enjoy St. John on foot, the Bordeaux Mt. trailhead in the Virgin Island National Park is only a short hike away leading to beautiful Lameshur Bay on the south side of the island as well as other trails in the park.

Whether lounging in the hammock or admiring a moonrise or sunrise over the British Virgin Islands, you will be surrounded by the sounds of the forest and mesmerized by an unforgettable view.
