Fish Bay cottage description

A charming, native stone cottage, designed by an award winning architect. Located on the south side of St. John, at the edge of Fish Bay with unobstructed views into the turquoise water of Reef Bay extending east to Rams Head and south to St. Croix in the distance.

The one bedroom cottage is perfect for honeymooners and or couples looking for a getaway. A second bedroom, available for additional fee, located on the lower level with a separate outdoor access.

Just beyond the cottage, a few minutes on foot to the National Park trail that leads down to Reef Bay beach, a beautiful sandy beach to spend the day. Ideal for snorkeling when the seas are calm or surfing with the locals when the waves are up.

Whether you are traveling as one couple or two, Reef Bay Cottage is a convenient drive into town or an additional 10 minutes to National Park north shore sandy beaches.

The main level of the cottage has a dining room/area with the kitchen to one side and living room on the opposite side. Just past the living room with native stone walls, step through the French doors to the tranquil bedroom. The comfortable, traditional queen sized mahogany, four poster bed is elevated and fitted with organic cotton duvet. A spacious vanity/desk accented with a native stone wall located between the bedroom and bathroom with views on two sides. Enjoy getting ready with ocean views directly in front of you.

Bathroom has white marble counter top and mahogany cabinets. Separate door leads to the outdoor shower, private and fully tiled. Enjoy your shower with the sun filled days or starry nights.

The living room is furnished with a very comfortable, fully upholstered sofa and arm chair. Enjoy movie nights on the flat screen television.

The kitchen has granite counter tops, mahogany cabinets and stainless steel appliances, outdoor gas grill. Well furnished with cooking utensils and a beautiful water view from the kitchen window.

The cottage is fully air-conditioned and stocked with beach towels, beach coolers, reading materials and a hat library for those who prefer to pack light.

Step out onto the east sun deck to enjoy the ocean view with sounds of the waves as it reaches the sandy shoreline. During winter months, keep a look out for whales migrating through.

For an additional fee, the second bedroom on the lower level is furnished with a queen-sized, hand carved mahogany headboard from Tanzania, indoor bathroom and shower to one side and laundry room on the opposite end. This second bedroom is not intended for younger children/guests requiring supervision due to separate outdoor access.

The pool is located up the hill, on the grounds between the cottage and main house. Guests can enjoy the exclusive use of the pool during their stay.

Reef Bay is a sandy National Park beach. To access, walk just a couple of minutes, 100 yards +/-, to the trail head. 'Agility' is necessary due to the uneven steps to the beach. Please note other sandy beaches are easily accessible along the North Shore, about a 20 minute drive from the cottage.
