Property description

Overview

The Honeymoon Cottage lies nestled deep in the Virgin Island National Park on the North Shore of St. John at Francis Bay. The villa overlooks Mary’s Creek and Leinster Bay with views of Tortola in the distance. It offers extreme privacy combined with the peacefulness of undisturbed natural surroundings and is perfect not only for newlyweds, but for those couples who wish to renew their vows year after year.  The Honeymoon Cottage is located 20 to 25 minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, 10 to 15 minutes from Coral Bay, and is only a 1 to 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk to the beautiful white sands of quiet Francis Bay Beach with its great swimming, snorkeling, and sunning.  Cinnamon Bay Campground is a 7 minute drive. It offers a nice gazebo restaurant along with a convenience store and water sport equipment rentals, which include snorkeling gear, kayaks, and sailboards.

The Interior

This cute and cozy 600 square foot, open floor plan, air-conditioned cottage houses a sleeping area with a queen sized poster bed, small living area with a full-size pullout sofa, desk, 32 inch LCD TV, and well-equipped kitchen, which includes a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and electric range. A coffee maker, blender, and toaster are also supplied along with a washer and dryer. A full bathroom with dual vessel sinks and an open but private sensuous outdoor shower adjoins the sleeping area.

Outdoors

A screened-in porch off the kitchen offers dining for 4 and opens to a rear deck with fantastic views of Mary’s Creek, Leinster Bay, and Tortola. Steps from the porch lead up to what sets this property aside, a secluded, completely private outdoor gazebo with its own hot tub, bed, and dining table for 2.  Yes, a true honeymoon experience. But you do not have to be honeymooners to value a week spent in “The Cottage.”

In Conclusion

Whether you are newlyweds, celebrating your 25th anniversary or just two people looking for a fantastic, healthy, nature-packed vacation of hiking, snorkeling, and swimming along with great restaurants and utter relaxation, The Honeymoon Cottage is just the destination. Young couples with small kids also love it. Experience St. John. Welcome to the Island!


A few helpful notes about communication services on the island:

CELL PHONE SERVICE: Cell phone usage in the Honeymoon Cottage and at other locations on the North Shore may pick up cell towers on Tortola (The British Virgin Islands). If this occurs, roaming charges could be applied to your bill, and/or you may be charged international rates. PLEASE FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH YOUR PERSONAL CELL PHONE PLAN BEFORE TRAVELING. For communicating with friends and relatives off island from the villa, think about using your computer’s video Skype mode via the house Internet Wi-Fi system. In most cases, this will be free. Cell phone users on St. John find AT&T the most efficient company with the best coverage. Although most other companies do work at the villa, if cell phone connection is important to you both at the house and in other areas of the island, and AT&T is not your normal carrier, you may wish to consider a pay-as-you-go AT&T phone for your vacation.

LOCAL PHONE SERVICE: Local phone service is available at the villa through St. John’s only telephone company. As in many semi-remote spots, service can occasionally be interrupted. We will do our best to remedy the situation should this happen. Again, you may wish to consider a pay-as-you-go AT&T cell phone.

INTERNET SERVICE: The Internet service for this villa is also provided through the island’s telephone company. Thus, it can also be occasionally interrupted. We will work to re-establish connection ASAP. Many times, however, the situation remains beyond our control. Renters may wish to carry mobile cellular Internet capability. Examples are MiFi via AT&T or Virgin Mobile.

POWER OUTAGES: Periodic power outages for minutes to several hours are not uncommon on St. John. If no storm or extraordinary circumstance is present, service is generally restored within the hour.

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Francis Bay:
Francis Bay is not only the last in the string of famous beautiful northern beaches on St. John as one drives east along the North Road, but it is also the most secluded of the bunch. This creates a serene privacy amongst an abundance of nature. We love it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
For couples that wish to be alone in lush natural surroundings, the Honeymoon Cottage can’t be beat. Select an inside queen size bed with air-conditioning or a private gazebo in the woods with hot tub, bed, and a table for 2. For lovers, the Cottage has both.
