Johns Folly house description

Bougainvillea Sunrise is the place to truly get away from it all and relax. This magical, airy two bedroom, two bath home is nestled into the hillside of Estate Concordia with an areial view of John's Folly Bay. The East End of St. John to the British Virgin Islands are the back drop to your view of the Caribbean Sea.

Sunrises are not to be missed at least once during your stay. Seeing darkness turning to light as the bright red sun emerges from the sea and the sky turns brilliant shades of pink is one of the unique benefits of this home.

Both bedrooms are air conditioned, providing maximum comfort for sleeping and cooling off as necessary during the day. The master bedroom features a king size bed along with a full bath, flat screen tv and private balcony, all overlooking the ocean. Wander down the steps from the balcony to the large private porch to relax in the hammock or lounge chairs.

The second beroom features two comfortable twin beds. Tropical flowers grow outside the bedroom window in the terraced back yard. Located across the hall is another full bathroom.

The main living area extends into an incredible sunroom with two daybeds perched above the water. This is an ideal place to start your day. Watch the sailboats bob in the ocean or you may even get lucky and see sting rays in the bay below. Sunrises are amazing with the sun rising out of the ocean. Sunsets are also beautiful watching the colors of the sky change over the hillside.

Plenty of windows and skylights throughout this home create a light and airy atmosphere.

The fully equipped kitchen opens to the dining area. Everything you need to create a fantastic island dinner is here for you. Seating at the kitchen island is great to keep the cook company or you can dine at the teak dining table in the dining area. Grilling outide is also an option with a gas grill on the back porch right outside the kitchen door making cooking fun inside or outside.

Native hermit crabs live in the rocks outside the kitchen window. Eating left overs, especially coffee grinds makes them happy and ensures their stay. Have your own crab races. Great fun for both kids and adults.

Salt Pond Bay and Beach, part of the Virgin Islands National Park is about five minutes by car. Salt Pond offers some of the island's best snorkeling. It is about a five minute walk down a trail from the parking area. Ram's Head Hiking Trail starts out at Salt Pond. It offers breathtaking views and full moon rises. Salt Pond Beach is so named because there is a natural salt pond behind the beach. Depending on the weather you may find salt crystals.

Wander into the town of Coral Bay for restaurants, shopping, and groceries. You're likely to see free roaming donkeys and goats on the 1o minute ride along the island road into Coral Bay.

Coral Bay is the quiet side of St. John so please remember you may not be able to get everything you need there. There are two grocery stores that provide most of the basics and some of the luxuries. Cruz Bay is about a 45 minute drive for more shopping and grocery selections.

We also own a restaurant in Coral Bay, Aqua Bistro,http://www.aquabistrostjohn.com/, and offer a free drink to all of our guests.

Please note travel time from the airport in St. Thomas can be 2-3 hours depending on the ferry schedule between the islands. It is a beautiful journey between and through both islands and adds to the away from it all experience.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We have lived in the Virgin Islands most of our adult lives. We now split our time between our island home and a home in the mountains of North Carolina. We love our home in St. John and are happy to now share it's unique character with visitors to our island.

              Why the Owner Chose Johns Folly:
              The amazing views are what sold us on this property. They are really unbelievable. It has a laid back natural style to it. The native hermit crabs living in the terraces were really what did it for us. .

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The natural setting and style of the house make it easy to feel at one with nature. Once you arrive at Bougainvillea Sunrise you really are away from it all. It can be just what is needed when life gets too busy.
