Property description

Tradewinds is a quiet, peaceful, private two bedroom cottage perched above John's Folly Bay in the scenic, quiet southeastern corner of St. John. In contrast to many cottages in St. John, we are easily accessible from a paved - yes paved - road. No scary gravelly mountain inclines to traverse to get to Tradewinds! Available as either a one or two bedroom bungalow, Tradewinds can accommodate 2 - 4 guests. If it's just two of you, the downstairs bedroom is locked and unoccupied for the week. If you'd like more room, the downstairs bedroom and bath can be made available to accommodate a total of 4 guests for an additional $400 per week.

A 45 minute drive from Cruz Bay (ferry arrival point), we are five minutes past Coral Bay, a one minute drive to Salt Pond Beach and Ram's Head. Tradewinds features beautiful sunrises from the large deck and the gentle melody of waves on the beach below.

This charming wooden cottage features light, airy rooms with stunning ocean views throughout. The deck commands a panoramic view of the British Virgin Islands, and a southeastern exposure offers breathtaking sunrises - if you're up that early! Steady tradewinds keep the house cool on hot days and ensure bug-free evenings.

Tradewinds can be rented as either a one-bedroom or two-bedroom unit. Renting as a 1BR grants access to the upper level featuring a kitchen/living room/eating area, bedroom, and bathroom. The downstairs area will be locked up, you'll have the whole cottage to yourself.

Or, for more space, rent Tradewinds as a 2BR cottage (an additional $400 per week) granting you access to both the upper and lower levels - one bedroom and bathroom on each level. The lower level, accessed by an enclosed outside stairway, features a beautiful bedroom with a private balcony and a bathroom with ocean views. This configuration is designed for maximum privacy between two bedrooms - each with its own private bath. This set-up is NOT good for small children, as bedrooms are far apart and access between levels is via a covered outside stairway. The choice is yours, one bedroom or two!

There are a few other houses on our hillside, ensuring complete privacy in our cottage, with a few houses nearby in case one wanted to wave hello to our neighbors.

Always best to contact us directly tradewindscottage@gmail.com or 781-934-9070 to hear about specials, ask about car rentals and groceries, weather, etc! :-)

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: Doug and I are a GREAT team... he can design or build just about anything, and I'm a good assistant, with my own tool belt! I'm also a master gardener, and pretty good with a paint brush!

Why Estate Concordia (Johns Folly, St. John, USVI):
Twenty-one years ago my husband Doug and I visited the island and fell in love with the place. We purchased this cottage – in need of more than a little TLC – in 1999, renovated it and have been renting it ever since. Every year at the beginning of the season we spend two weeks in St. John opening the cottage and making sure every inch is sparkling clean and in perfect working order. Then, our property management company, Cimmaron, comes in every week and inspects everything, cleans until every detail is sparkling, and fixes anything that might need a repair!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our guests tell us that this place feels like HOME the minute you walk in. Wake up to the sound of the waves below, watch the sunrise from your bed, go out on the deck for coffee, then go off to the beach all day. When you come home at night, have a few beverages on the deck, listen to reggae on the sound system, and enjoy your little tropical paradise escape.
