Property description

Fishbone is a colorful Caribbean cottage on the private south shore of St. John. It is 2 story with 2 baths, one bedroom, queen sofa bed in the living room and lots of deck space.
You hear the crashing surf and have a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. There are hummingbirds and bananquit birds, great star-gazing at night. (You can see the Southern Cross and the Big Dipper in one sky!)
Walk to beaches. Easy hikes are to Ditleff Point and Reef Bay where you may be the only ones on the beach, or a short drive to public beaches. Fishbone is for privacy and nature.


Truely an magical place! Pictures just cannot discribe this cottage. All who arrive at Fishbone are struck with awe. We have many return guests. Concider yourselves blessed if you find this place. You will never forget it!!

Cruz Bay is only 3 miles to the night happenings. Or 2 miles to the Westin Resort for fine dining and a piano bar.

About: Welcome to our beautiful island and Fishbone!| May it's beauty bring you a joyous visit and peaceful stay. Your hosts, Al & Joan. Al is know as 'surveyor Al.' He sailed from his home state of NC in the early 80's to become Best-Winters Surveyors on the island. His wife, Joan is an artist and Cranial Sacral Therapist. Her paintings are for sale at the Banzhof Gallery. For Fishbone guests the art throughout the cottage is offered at a special rate. Gina is our gracious concierge. She is a wonderful guide for you on island. and 'can do' host. A school teacher and mother of twin girls, her husband and she reside in Fish Bay. We all enjoy having you at Fishbone! Take in the natural beauty of our island. If we can be of further assistance you can reach us at 340-643-5452. Fishbone is your second home in the islands! Please visit us again and be part of the family.

Why Fish Bay:
It has the privacy of the south shore. Al the surveyor saw the cottage as one of the first choice lots with panoramic views of the Caribbean and perched where the tropical breeze is captured. It is a traditional caribbean cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Convenience to amenities, 2.5 miles to the town, ferry dining and entertainment in Cruz Bay, yet secluded enough as we say, to be clothing optional. :)
