Property description

If you missed drinking rum with Hemmingway in Key West or Cuba, you can still grab a bit of that adventure in this West Indian home. Old Caribbean charm with all the modern amenities.

Callaloo was carefully built to preserve old West Indies design and ambiance. Each bedroom is a separate cottage surrounded by porches, decks, patios and open air baths and showers.

It is filled with authentic Caribbean antiques that are rugged, no need to worry about being careful. Couches, chairs, and the entire place work well with wet bathing suits and rum.

This is the perfect honeymoon place, romantic, and private, yet it is great for a group. Everyone will have privacy: Moonlight Cottage, Shell Cottage,Pineapple Cottage and a sleeping loft in the main house with a 4th bath.

The bathrooms were copied from resort cottages in Bali. Shower under the stars or the sun. Bake in the West Indian oven. Quickly smoke roasts, turkey, vegetables using aromatic tropical woods.

What Callaloo offers that you will not find in other villas:
Charming antiques, outdoor bathrooms, totally open cottages, romantic bed nets, total privacy, West Indian oven, two entry roads (one is a driving adventure and the other is for little old ladies; (I’m an older gal, but I prefer driving the adventure road). Center island location gives proximity to all the northern beaches, East end beaches, Salt Pond, south shore bays. 600 ft. elevation insures cool breezes.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I am a retired yacht designer. I've sailed to most of the Caribbean Islands and St. John is the best. For 15 years I collected photos of every charming West Indian cottage to design my own West Indian tin-roof 'shack'. I wanted a place for good times and parties; for my friends and family. Rather than a large American house such as you find in Florida or Hawaii, I wanted it to look truly Island. Furnishings were collected for years and stored in my potting shed. I designed the house and supervised the construction. Most of all I have enjoyed the visitors and parties that are always at CALLALOO
