You'll find a tranquility you've never experienced before just sitting out on the deck of this beautiful home which offers everything. Spectacular sunsets with views of Pillsbury Sound and the lights of St. Thomas. This home overlooks Great Cruz Bay and the Westin Resort and is a scenic five minute drive from the town of Cruz Bay. Short scenic drive to all of the beaches (Hawksnest, Honeymoon, Cinnamon, Trunk, Maho and more).
Large living room has sliders with screens on both sides and the gentle trade winds keep the home airy and fresh. Well stocked galley kitchen with stainless steel appliances is open to the dining and living area with access to the deck directly from the kitchen. The deck has two large tables with seating for 8 with additional lounge chairs.
3 bedrooms with 3 baths. Large master suite on one side of house with large walk in shower with stone walls and rainfall shower head. Master has king size bed with dresser to store clothes, additional chairs for seating and door opening out onto the deck. You can sit in bed and look out at Pillsbury Sound and fall asleep to the sound of the waves.
Second master suite has king bed with attached bath and 3rd bedroom with hall bath. All baths have recently been renovated with beautiful walk in stone wall and glass showers.
Return from the beach in the afternoon for a dip in the pool before cocktails on the 45' deck with unsurpassed views and always a breeze. You'll want to get your dinner to go, just to dine on the deck.
Beach towels, beach chairs, washer and dryer, basic cable, wi-fi, a safe for your valuables, outdoor grill, docking station for your ipod, and a second outdoor eating area and outdoor shower. Available by the week or the month.
You'll find yourself getting up earlier than usual, just to go out on the deck and enjoy the early morning and counting the iguanas in the treetops or watching the sailboats in Great Cruz Bay or Pillsbury Sound. Our gardens are filled with tropical plants and flowers, including orchids, desert rose and bougainvilla. You'll see hummingbirds and bananaquits and maybe even a hawk or two. At night, you can look out to the sky and see millions of stars.
Many of our guests return again and again over the years. If you're looking to party hardy, this is not the island or home for you. If you love nature and want to decompress, this is the perfect island and home for you! Besides the gardens and birds and iguanas you'll see at the house, the snorkeling on the island is excellent. It's not unusual to swim with the sea turtles or see rays, tarpons or other tropical fish. St John is home to the Virgin Islands National Park and 2/3 of the island is National Park. The National Park Service has free hikes (check with them for schedule).
Walk around small town and shop or eat at some of the town's great restaurants. From barbeque at Uncle Joe's (the best), or a drink at The Quiet Mon, there's always something to do in Cruz Bay. Or drive over to the other side of the island and spend time in Coral Bay, go to the beach at Salt Pond (this is a hike and you'll need lots of water), but the snorkeling there is great. Go to Skinny Legs for lunch, stop at the top of Bordeaux Mountain for a smoothie and head back home to Cruz Bay.
St John is an out of the way island that is laid back and off the beaten track. There are no airport or cruise ship terminals. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation without the hustle and bustle or big city, this island is it.

Year Purchased: 1993
About: I purchased this home almost 20 years ago because I had been to St John previously and fell in love with the island. The Virgin Islands National Park was located here and I loved the serenity and peace of the island. I live in CT and NY most of the year and travel to St John frequently to get away from it all.
Why Great Cruz Bay: Morgan Point is situated at one of the best locations on the island of St John, at Great Cruz Bay. The villa boasts spectacular views and is within 5 minutes of the town of Cruz Bay. Morgan Point is equipped with everything you need away from home, including the incredible deck and entertaining area, a pool, laundry facilities and a well stocked kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This home is in one of the best locations on the island. The views are spectacular and the home is a short drive into town.
