Reef Bay villa description
Second Wind sits on a south facing lot on the very edge of the National Park in Reef Bay, on the south coast of St. John. Reef Bay and Second Wind remain a largely undeveloped and naturalist’s hideaway, off the roads traveled by most St. John guests. From your villa it is about a 1-2 minute walk to the Reef Bay path and then a 5-minute hike down to Reef Bay Beach - one of the most private National Park beaches on St John. For hikers, a scenic 1-mile hike along the Reef Bay shoreline brings you to another white sand beach at the head of Reef Bay. There is also an old sugar mill here with a self-guided interpretative tour. Another 1.6 mile National Park trail leads you to the turquoise waters, white sands and colorful snorkeling at Lameshure Bay. Along the way, you can visit the petroglyphs and a partially restored old manor house. You can also take a more challenging 1.2 mile hike to the top of scenic Bordeaux Mountain. For restaurants, bars and shopping, it's a 4-mile drive into Cruz Bay, but Reef Bay is well off the beaten path, so few tourists explore this relatively unknown area of St John.
Second Wind is a one level villa that consists of a great house, with a private and romantic one-bedroom cabana on the left and on the right of the great house. The great house contains the living/dining/kitchen areas plus one bedroom/bath. The second and third bedroom/baths are in the two cabanas and are similar in size and appointments.
All the bedrooms (2 kings, 2 twins-convert to a king) are air conditioned and all have pillow views of the Caribbean Sea. Each bedroom also has a tiled bath with a shower with a view. The twins/king bedroom is accessed from the great room or the deck, and the cabana bedrooms each have exterior private access. The three bedrooms all enjoy romantic water views through screened sliding glass doors.
The living room includes a 32’ flat screen TV/DVD, a stereo/cassette/CD and an iPod hookup, wireless Internet and books and games. Lots of south facing windows provide peaceful ocean views and create a bright interior that is accented by rose tiled floors, Caribbean artwork and rattan furniture that creates a comfortable and relaxing tropical island home.
The dining room seats six around a wooden table or you can dine on the deck at a table for 4-6.
The handsome kitchen is fully tiled and well appointed with a 4-burner gas stove and oven, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, telephone and a washer/dryer. A BBQ gas grill is on the deck.
Second Wind faces southeast and gets lots of sun on the spacious sun deck and the pool, but there is also a large covered deck for relaxing in the shade, with plenty of deck furniture for both the sun deck or the shade deck.
Second Wind is one of a handful of homes on St. John that is built on one level, making this villa ideal for young children or anyone adverse to climbing stairs. The real draw of this home is its location, 25 feet from the boundary of the National Park, you're in a peaceful, tranquil, naturalist zone where the only sounds you hear are surf breaking on the beach and the wind rustling through the palm fronds. This is a very stress free living environment, but you're only a 15-minute drive from great tropical bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay

Why Reef Bay:
Our family was one of the first families to build a villa overlooking Reef Bay, and we chose this location for its uncommon natural beauty and its gorgeous views of the National Park. We also like the calm and restful atmosphere on this part of the island, which is the quiet, less visited side of St. John. We do like tourists, most have come to St. John to visit the National Park and we share their love for its grandeur. But we don’t necessarily love tourists in our neighborhood, and that’s why we chose to build our home in Reef Bay. The south shore road that takes you to Reef Bay is not a through road, and unlike St. John’s other primary roads, this road dead ends at Reef Bay. We’re off the beaten path of the day-trippers and tourists that visit St. John, and that’s one of the features that we love most about Reef Bay. The foremost feature that we love is, of course, the spectacular beauty of the jagged south coast of the National Park. You can’t drive along the south coast of the national park, but you can hike it, and it’s a beautiful hike along the turquoise shoreline and through lush tropical forests. For most of the time you’re hiking, swimming, snorkeling, or relaxing in your villa, you’re in that Walden Pond - Caribbean style, state of being alone and at peace with yourself and your environment. We can’t say enough good things about St. John’s National Park, and about Reef Bay, which is definitely one of the park’s hidden jewels.
