About the Property
1BR Oceanview Vacation Rental St. John, Virgin Islands USA
IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT RATES AND POLICIES: Our rental week runs from Sunday to Sunday. We have two rates: Low season from April 16 to December 14 and High season from December 15 to April 15. The rates are as listed. The only additional charge is 12.5% hotel tax. We do not collect a damage deposit. Our 20 year relationship with guests has taught us that this is not necessary. We treat our guests with respect and we have found that they return the favor. There are no extra costs for reservations, cleaning or service. If you encounter any additional charges when requesting a detailed quote it would be from the advertising site where you found us. Calabash Cottages is an established company and information about our rentals is easily found..
Car Rentals: Since the purchase of Homeaway and VRBO by Expedia we have seen an attachment at the bottom of our ads with them encouraging guests to book car rentals through their site. Because of our unique location we strongly advise against that. You do need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We have for over 20 years done business with a very reliable company, Courtesy Car Rental. We believe in them enough that we forgo the commission they would give us and to apply it as a discount to your car rental. Please discuss car rentals with us before reserving. Our most important interest is in satisfying our customers. But the recent take over of our advertising sites by large corporations is constructing communication barriers. We can always be contacted directly.
We have numerous storage areas in a compact home with a a view that rivals any on the island. At Windwardside Guest Cottage you will wake up in a four poster bed to a gorgeous view of the Caribbean sea framed by palm trees. You could easily create a post card from the view of this adorable cottage.
The interior has a queen-size, four-poster bed, a small seating area, a kitchenette and a breakfast bar. The furnishings are both tasteful and cheerful. The covered porch has a dining area and two lounging chairs where you can enjoy the trade winds or good book while watching the sailboats pass by. A small gas grill is also available if you prefer to prepare your meals over looking the sea. A shower garden opens onto an uncovered deck. There you can have a relaxing evening soak in the hot tub under a starry Caribbean sky. The hot tub also has a wide view of the sea and total privacy.
In short Windwardside Guest Cottage offers a serene location, fabulous view, charming furnishings, a private hot tub, kitchenette and bbq, plus the dedicated staff of Calabash Cottages who will organize your vacation from start to finish all for the price of a hotel room. We provide snorkel gear, beach chairs and a cooler and a beach umbrella
We also include amenities that you may never need on our casual island (including an iron and a blow dryer) because we want you to be able to travel as light and carefree as possible. Please read reviews from out former guests. We hope to host you on our next visit to St. John.
Before making a payment, always call the manager at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Year Purchased: 1996
About: We are thirty year residents of St. John. My husband is a retired builder and we designed this home together. We built Windwardside in 1996 and have managed it as part of the Calabash Cottages group for over 20 years. Calabash Cottages offers charming and private cottages and villas in quiet secluded locations. Our main focus is to provide an assortment of options for couples in a tranquil setting. We and our staff always do our best to insure your precious vacation time is well spent at one of our Calabash Cottages. We are very happy to answer any questions to help you decide if Windwardside Guest Cottage or one of our other Calabash Cottages is a good fit for you.
Why Calabash Boom, Johns Folly, St. John, USVI:
We love Coral Bay and wanted to design a home that did not tower over the hillside but fit into it's natural surroundings. The shape and orientation allowed of this property allowed us to do just that while still offering fabulous views. We love quiet natural settings, tropical gardens and ocean views and we appeal to visitors who are looking for just that.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Windwardside Guest Cottage will make you fall in love with the view from the front porch. The first thing you will see in the morning right from your four poster bed is the palm fronds waving in the breeze. This compact cottage offers many amenities. It is also a great choice for two couples when rented with Windwardside Main House as each has a lot of privacy.
