Cruz Bay house description

If you want to relax next to your own private swimming pool adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park and surrounded by a private tropical garden, then this is the place for you. You will feel entirely away from it all, despite the fact that the galleries, restaurants, bars, music, and other conveniences of Cruz Bay are only one mile away.

Caribbean views from every room in the house will mesmerize you as the ridge-top breezes cool you after a day at the beach.

Our house has two bedroom suites on opposite sides of a great room. Each has a king-sized bed and its own en suite bathroom, individually zoned air-conditioning, and private access to a porch overlooking the Caribbean. One bed converts to X-long twins and there is an aerobed available and a pack'n'play crib.

The villa sits one mile outside Cruz Bay high up on the ridge in the saddle between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill, adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park.

40 yards from our back yard, through National Park land, is Caneel Hill Trail, which drops down to secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore in a less than 45 minuets, and drops down to the town of Cruz Bay with a half-hour hike in the other direction. A ¼ mile hike brings you to the Caneel Hill Observatory Platform, where you can see 360-degree view of the Caribbean and Atlantic as well as the entire Western Half of St John.

A lush garden surrounds the private brick patio that encloses a swimming pool, barbecue area, plentifully seating, and lots of space to idle away from it all. Expansive front porches look out over the Southwest end of St John and offer expansive views of the Caribbean. The house was built in 2005 and everything is quite new, state of the art, and in excellent condition. In case you aren't quite ready to get away from it all, though, we do have DSL/WiFi. There is an iPod-ready sound system and cable TV too.

We are entirely committed to protecting the Island's fragile environment. We recently assumed full management of the house, and as of January 2009, we promise that all products and practices encountered at the house are as earth friendly as possible. Please join us as we attempt to lead the way to a more sustainable tourism economy on St John.
