Coral Bay villa description

Relax in the romantic ambiance of a Tuscan-style villa, completely private from neighbors on a quiet, paved lane yet an easy drive to all the beautiful St. John beaches, both north and south. You will be caressed by tropical breezes high above the waters of the Sir Francis Drake Channel with views of Tortola, Virgin Gorda and other British Virgin Islands. Luxuriate in the spa, surrounded by tropical blooms. Two identical, ground floor Master Suites with air-conditioning and large private baths provide the perfect Caribbean hideaway for honeymooners, two couples, or small family groups.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1996

                              About the owner: About Us: We first came to St. John with friends in 1988 to escape the Northern winter, rented a house in Coral Bay, and fell in love with the island way of life. After about 10 more trips, we started looking seriously for a place to build our own special sanctuary, a 'down island' view, balmy evening breezes, and the magic of those island clouds that reflect all the colors of the sunset. Because we had rented numerous vacation homes, we knew just what we wanted for ourselves, and our guests. We try to get to St. John whenever we can to relax, recharge and just 'chill.' Come see for yourselves why this place is so special!

                              Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
                              Why Coral Bay, St. John? St. John is such a beautiful island. Two thirds is National Park with many gorgeous unspoiled beaches like famous Trunk Bay. Coral Bay is the 'quiet' side of the island, home of famous Skinny Legs burger place, and the relaxed yachting community - St. John as it has been for decades. The atmosphere may be laid back and casual, but there is plenty to do - great restaurants, shopping and activities including quick access to fabulous beaches.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Unique Place: We love the peaceful location of Villa Margherita. It is in a quiet, established area with well-maintained, paved lanes, completely private from neighbors: they're there, but you can't see them and they can't see you! It's a short drive from the house to everything you want to do and see. To sit on the upper patio watching the full moon rise, sparkling off the Sir Francis Drake Channel - Magic!
