Caneel Trailside Cottage sits one mile outside Cruz Bay, high up on the ridge in the saddle between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill, adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park. Forty yards from the backyard, through National Park land, is Caneel Hill Trail, which drops down to the secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore (Honeymoon Beach, Caneel Bay and Solomon Bay) in less than 45 minutes, and drops down to the town of Cruz Bay with a half-hour hike in the other direction. A 1/4-mile hike brings you to the Caneel Hill Observation Platform, where you can see a 360-degree view of both the Caribbean and Atlantic as well as the entire Western Half of St John. From Caneel Trailside Cottage’s doorstep you can literally hike through the forest to get everywhere you will need to be on the western half of St. John.
A lush garden surrounds the private brick patio that encloses a swimming pool with teak poolside chaises and a barbecue area. A wide shaded veranda for outdoor dining and relaxing adds great space to enjoy the breeze and idle away from it all. The veranda looks out over the southwest end of St John and offers expansive views of the Caribbean all the way to St. Croix. The house was built in 2005 and everything is high quality, state of the art, and in perfect condition.

2 bedroom suites with king size beds (one of which converts to twins) are on either side of a great room. Each has a private bathroom within the suite. And each suite has independent AC control. Each suite has a private door to a sitting porch overlooking the Caribbean Sea. There is a convertible queen-sized couch in the great room that can accommodate an extra guest or two but they must share a bathroom. There is a Pack'n'play portable crib for an infant also, so a family of as many as 7 could be accommodated....moreless

Caneel Trailside Cottage, sits atop of the ridge between the two highest peaks on the west side of St John, about one mile outside of Cruz Bay off of Centerline Road. It features unobstructed spectacular views to the south shore and St. Croix and you can glimpse the north shore through the National Park forest. The property borders the National Park and there is a trail spur to the Caneel Trail that can be accessed from the driveway, hence the Caneel Trailside name. A few minutes hike on that trail toward town takes you to the top of Caneel Hill and a platform with 360 degree views; a few minutes further and you arrive in Mongoose Junction (Cruz Bay).
