Hawksnest Bay cottage description

THE HAWK'S NEST is a finely crafted small home with an ideal location on private property inside the borders of the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park and within walking distance to five world class beaches. The North Shore beaches of Hawksnest, Gibney, Denis, Jumbie and Trunk Bay are all within 10-20 minute walking distance from your front door. For more activity, the tennis courts, spa, beaches & restaurants of the world-famous Caneel Bay Resort are also on the North Shore.

Perched among the trees 97 feet above Hawksnest Bay, the cottage looks across the water to Caneel Bay Resort and further west to the sunset over St. Thomas and other out-islands. Enjoy the open-air, three-sided view from the great room to watch the birds fly by during breakfast. In the morning or afternoon, relax for a pleasant time in the garden among the native trees and wild orchids. For a spectacular sunset dinner, enjoy the full-length covered deck. In the evening, retire to the screened master suite which includes a king-size bed, TV/DVD and a spacious sitting area on the fully screened deck off the master bedroom. The bedroom also features an en-suite bath with alfresco tiled shower.

Enjoy the option (and savings) of not renting a car since the cottage's location is so ideal. The National Park road, Highway 20, is a 3-minute walk down the hillside road that leads from the cottage. The taxi-vans run along the Park road during the day and can provide a quick lift to Caneel Bay Resort or a 10-minute ride into the town of Cruz Bay for more dining choices and unique duty free gallery shopping. Some guests still choose to rent a car and,if so, you should reserve a small 4-wheel drive vehicle on St. John.

COME TO THE HAWKS NEST AND ENJOY A VERY SPECIAL NORTH SHORE LOCATION !
