                  Car: Necessary

                  The house is located in the desirable enclave of Upper Carolina, a quiet, residential neighborhood about five minutes from the shops and restaurants in Coral Bay. High enough up the hill to catch the trade wind breezes and afford lovely valley and water views, but only seven to fifteen minutes to the best North and South Shore and East End beaches.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We've been renting villas in St. John for the past eighteen years, so we are keenly aware of what makes a great rental experience. We both work in design and construction in the hotel industry and we put that expertise to work in making this house a comfortable, tastefully-appointed, smart weekly accommodation.

                  Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
                  After renting in Cruz Bay, Bordeaux Mountain, Gifft Hill and Coral Bay, we found that Upper Carolina in Coral Bay affords us the best location for our annual vacations on St. John. A quick check of the prevailing winds in the morning allows us to get to the best snorkeling spots on the North Shore, East End or South Shore in less than 15 minutes for our first two-hour swim of the day. I can also get to the Leinster Bay running loop (the best place to run in the morning) in exactly seven minutes--from the house to the Annaberg parking lot. Which makes an early morning run that much more enjoyable.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This accommodation is all about the space. There's plenty of it for a one-bedroom listing. When you open the door, we want you to love the big, breezy, eat-in kitchen, the comfortable verandah, the lovely furnishings and the terrific valley and Coral Bay views. We have off-street parking directly in front of the house which is extremely rare for St. John rental properties. And, because the house is located in the desirable enclave of Upper Carolina, the road to the house is paved concrete with constant maintenance from our homeowners association. It's even level and long enough for a meaningful stroll under the stars after dinner--a pleasant surprise to all of our guests.
