Josiah's Bay cottage description

Without a doubt, this property delivers the best of what this island has to offer right on its door step. Only 7 minutes from the airport & 12 minutes to Road Town. You can walk to the loveliest sandy beach, Josiah's Bay, (one of the best surfing beaches on the island) or enjoy the tranquility of stargazing at the nearby Secret Garden Restaurant in a historic sugar mill plantation.

You can lay back & relax on the cane back lounging chairs on the front porch of Lime Leaf after a quiet dinner for two cooked in the full service kitchen. Tamarind Club restaurant with a swim up pool bar is a 5 minute walk away & can supply a more lively night life if you desire with Trivia nights & bands weekly.

The cottage compact design is functional and your sure to find everything that you need. As you enter past the covered and spacious stone covered porch & enter the large French doors, you'll encounter the living room & separate en-suite bedroom on the left and to your right , the open plan kitchen with teak dining table. The cottage is painted soothing shades of West Indian colors and the property is surrounded by mature flowering native trees. The furnishings are teak with a Balinese flavor, the cupboards display a unique tin stenciling of a Caribbean reef scene. The beauty of Josiah's Bay is all around you and you can fall asleep listening to the waves crash on the beach.

A great space to retreat to after a day at the beach or stay at the cottage to write a novel or paint a watercolor, it's definitely an artists paradise. This is the perfect romantic hide away retreat for two.

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: I first came to the Virgin Islands in the early 80's and worked as a chef on charter-boats out of St. Thomas. Tortola appealed to me with its unique charm of wandering cows, pigs & chickens and tranquil beaches. My mother also followed me down here & met my step father, the late Tortola born Jazz musician Jon Lucien. When I first saw this property I knew it was the one. It has all the quite charm you could wish for in West Indian tradition with exterior stone details and high tongue and grooved ceiling. Little did I know when I first saw the property that is was located close to Jon's birth place & a first cousin to Jon had helped to build it. The Islands have always called me back for yearly visits and Lime Leaf has been the perfect retreat for me to paint, write, swim & snorkel, boggy board, kite board, lay on the beach & dance to reggae music. I am an Interior Decorator, Professional & Instructional Artist. I totally refurbished this cottage with lots of artistic touches like custom hand tooled tin work cabinets and tile work.

                  Why Josiah's Bay:
                  This was the quiet retreat I was looking for. A quiet place on a country lane where cows meander by and chickens crow. A short walk to the almost private beach where buggy boarding & surfing dominate Nov thru April and flat waters in the summer. Several beach side bars & restaurants for food or refreshment. A quiet place for reflection to paint or write and a cool retreat from the sun after a day at any of the convenient beaches or mingling with tourists at the nearby large hotel pool (that I didn't have to maintain but could enjoy). It had the old West Indian charm with the high ceilings, stone work enclosed patio seating and beautiful mature flowering foliage. I enjoy the private driveway and you don't have to go a great distance up & down hilltops to get to the grocery store, there's one 3 minutes away on the East End.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  One of the most enjoyable things about staying at Lime Leaf is that you have your privacy. You can come & go as you please without walking into a public place. You can sit on the front porch to drink your morning coffee, read undisturbed or just walk to the beach. A perfect place to write with a desktop or paint a painting. You have everything you need to relax. Chickens, pigs and cows often walk by the paved quite country like lane. You can see and watch exotic birds coming in from the near-by salt pond. But, if you want to be around people or be entertained the night life and pool side bars are near too.
