Hurricane Hole villa description
This newly completed, four bedroom luxury villa sits at the top of a mountainside overlooking St. John’s pristine Hurricane Hole, designated a Virgin Islands Coral Reef Monument in 2001.
Heaven’s Gate sits alone, high atop a hill, surrounded by Virgin Islands National park lands, with sweeping, unobstructed 180 degree views of Hurricane Hole and open ocean dotted with small islands and cays, including Leduck Island, Peter Island, and Tortola. This mountaintop retreat affords complete peace and privacy and is close to world-class snorkeling at Haulover Bay just below. It is also close to Brown Bay Trail, one of St. John’s best hiking destinations. This trail connects with the Johnny Horn Trail, which takes you to the Annaberg Sugar Plantation Ruins.
Each of the four handsomely furnished bedroom suites includes its own private bath, three with outside showers, and each suite has access to outside terraces.
The villa includes a sparkling pool with built in seating, gourmet kitchen, a large comfortably furnished great room, and both upper and lower level covered terraces framing the breathtaking views. And it is all surrounded by beautiful gardens and extensive tropical landscaping.
Heaven’s Gate is a serene and very private luxury hilltop vacation villa.

What A Wonderful Place!!!
What A Wonderful Place!!!
My husband and I just returned from a ten night stay at Heaven's Gate. It was one of the most awesome villas that we have ever stayed in. There we found a true jewel that provided peace, solitude, great views and the ultimate in comfort. Everything was there that we could have ever needed. We were met in Coral Bay and escorted to the house which has an electronic gate and a long driveway up to the house. The flower gardens beside the driveway and the house were done by the owner herself and the grounds are immaculate. The interior of the house is exactly as shown in the photos. The owner lives a short distance from Heaven's Gate and if you have a special need, she sees to it immediately. I would recommend this villa to my family and friends because of it's spectacular views and the well kept condition of the house itself and the grounds. Everything was spotless. If you are looking for a great escape, this is the villa for you!

What a wonderful villa! Absolutely stunning views from a fully equipped island home. The first thing you'll notice upon coming up the drive are the beautiful flowers, plants and trees that make even the exterior unique, even for St John. The landscaping is just the beginning, though. The gorgeous front entrance and 'silo' are welcoming and once inside you already feel as though you are home. A compass on the stonework out front gets your bearings for the view out of the windows in the great room and on to the porch is so much to take in,. The wrap-around porches (private on two of the suites) are breathtaking, with a full 210 degree view of the far East End and Caribbean Sea. To your right is a modest-looking, though deep-enough-to-dive pool thats just the right temperature to cool off in the warm sun. Should you turn back around to come inside and finally set your bags down, the well-equipped kitchen promises the meals will be just as good as the view. The suites are all set for a cozy, cool night in, should you choose to skip the top-of-the-line television in the great room. A/C really wasn't needed yet, but will be well appreciated in the summer months. A stereo in the great room powers the interior sound, while a separate one plays your music over the pool and sun deck. If you decide to leave the vila, theres great bars in the area to catch sports or live music and amazing food at Ms Vie's, a five minute drive East. Snorkeling is world class and the hiking will leave you hungry to fire up the grill out front. I would highly recommend this villa over any I have stayed in on the Western side of the island. The privacy is unmatched, the location is perfect, and the view cannot be beaten on St John.

Heaven's Gate AMAZING
Heaven's Gate AMAZING
The pictures don't do Heaven's Gate justice! The owners attention to detail throughout was impressive. The bedrooms are private & very comfortable. The outdoor showers are works of art. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. I never saw such a wide variety of tropical flowers at a private villa. We were up early every morning to greet the rising sunshine...coffee till 10 am on the beautiful porches. Then decision time....do we leave or not? Take a 15 minute drive further east to the East End of the island & stop at Miss Vie's snack shack~ geat food. Spend another $2.50 per person & swim & snorkel on her most private sandy beach. Lovely day away from Heaven's gate. Most relaxing vacation I've ever had! Definelty plan to come back! I wish them great success but I hope it's available when I need it next!

The perfect getaway!
The perfect getaway!
Heaven's Gate is absolutely gorgeous! The view is stunning - while staying there we traveled all over St. John and St. Thomas, and by far the best view I saw was from the beautiful patio of the house. It overlooks the water and the other side of the island, and is breathtaking! The house and grounds are well maintained and beautifully designed, and everything is very clean and welcoming. The kitchen was my favorite part of the house indoors - it is very well designed and has beautiful granite countertops, and is a great place to relax and enjoy time with friends. However, the outside is just beautiful - the patio and pool area are perfect, and look out over the water. The bedroom we stayed in was equally as stunning - we opened the French doors each morning to a lovely patio with a beautiful mosaic table and bench that overlooked the ocean - it was like a tropical paradise. It is just a short drive from the downtown area, which has great restaurants and shopping, but is wonderfully secluded and tucked away. It is peaceful and serene, and there are some great trails nearby that take you right over the beach (you could stop and go snorkeling, it is awesome), and take you to an old sugar mill. This would absolutely be my first choice for staying on the island, especially if you don't want to be in a crowded resort, and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to visit St. John. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been and this house was the perfect place to enjoy it!! While you're there definitely check out Skinny Legs, a restaurant right down the road (they have a great collection of Boston sports parapharnelia, which made me happy) - they have a great bar, and great burgers. Definitely take a day to do some of the trails nearby - they are the best way to enjoy the amazing wildlife, and you can stop on the trails for a dip in the beautiful water.
