Bordeaux Mountain cottage description

Unique St. John villa rental on top of Bordeaux Mountain offers absolute peace and privacy, with views of rolling hills and the sea beyond. Within walking distance of National Park trailhead to Lameshur Bay, this villa is a nature lover's dream come true. There are no close neighbors or towns; the only sounds are the squeal of hawks flying overhead, and the tropical breezes rustling through the trees. You will feel so relaxed and content here, you won’t want to leave. Yet the gorgeous north shore beaches of the National Park are just a drive away. The quiet village of Coral Bay is located at the bottom of the mountain, where you will find shopping, dining and night life. All are accessible over a road offering unparalleled scenic views of the water and islands around and beyond St John.

Villa Bordeaux is situated on a sunny and open ridge, with sweeping views of the hills and valley. The surrounding property provides great butterfly watching, and has a large number of small and full grown bay trees, source of the fragrant St. John bay leaves and bay rum. There are no other houses in view, just lush tropical foliage and rolling lush hills surrounding the property. Privacy, peace and quiet are what this villa is all about.

The villa offers a master bedroom and bath, a sleeping loft with two twin beds, one bathroom and washer and dryer. The great room has space for relaxing or reading indoors on comfortable rattan furniture. There is an indoor dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The great room opens out to a large covered, wrap-around deck, where you can eat and lounge while enjoying the absolute peace and quiet of the surrounding hills, as well as gaze out to sea. At Villa Bordeaux, you will find yourself more relaxed and at peace than ever before!

                  Year Purchased: 1976

                  About: I started coming to St. John in 1965 with a college friend who is from here. I bought this acre in 1976 from her stepfather and walked the land with him and the aid of a machete. Finally in 2009 I built this home here, where I hope to spend as much time as possible away from Michigan winters. I hope to grow an organic, sustainable garden, available to renters, which will provide fruit and vegetable for me and any guests. I love the beauty and tranquility of the mountain, and the calm joy of watching the butterflies from the porch.
