Property description

This two-bedroom/two-bath villa on a hillside overlooking Cruz Bay is the perfect location for watching the yachts and sailboats cruise in and out of the bay. Owned by a sea captain, the house features stunning sunset views across Pillsbury Sound to St. Thomas. An extensive network of decks down to the pool level offers multiple opportunities for socializing or privacy.

A five-minute walk takes you past the gourmet grocery store and into town for shopping and fine dining. A five-minute drive takes you to the first of a string of gorgeous National Park beaches.

Captain’s View is the perfect St. John accommodation for one or two couples. The two king bedrooms have private baths; they’re air conditioned and equipped with satellite TV. You can stay connected with high-speed WifF (most of the time!).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Ten years after sailing my classic ocean racer to the Virgin Islands, I bought what was at that time a plywood cabin on a sparsely populated hill above Cruz Bay, the main port of entry on St. John. St. John is arguably the finest Caribbean island with beautiful beaches and fabulous views. Since then, the house has grown into a wonderful rental property with incredible views of the harbor, sound and St. Thomas in the distance. Sunsets are incomparably beautiful and the morning water colors are shades of turquoise that are hard to believe. The convenience of walking just minutes to the grocery store or to restaurants and shopping in town, plus the privacy of being at the end of a little road, surrounded by undeveloped land, equals the perfect vacation retreat. I'm sure you will love it as much as I do!

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
The incomparable view of the harbor, the stunning sunsets, the early morning palette of blues, would sell this location alone. Add to that the privacy of a dead-end road and the five minute walk into town, and you have the perfect spot for a vacation house.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Evening meals on the verandah, with the breeze coming down the undeveloped hillside, the twinkle of lights on St. Thomas, the wafting of Caribbean music from town, all make Captain's View a great place to stay.
