About the Property

1BR Oceanview Vacation Rental St. John, Virgin Islands USA, very romantic

At Calabash Cottages we specialize in private getaways for two guests. This charming Caribbean cottage, Sago Cottage, is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway or a honeymoon. The open airy design and the cheerful colors are distinctly tropical, while the cozy ambiance of Sago Cottage will make you feel right at home. Sunrise and ocean views can be enjoyed from the four-poster bed. Moon rises from the deck or while lounging in the hot tub under a star-filled sky are unforgettable experiences. The secluded location of Sago Cottage is still just a short drive from our lovely white sand beaches, the national park hiking trails and a variety of restaurants. The cottage has a full kitchen and both indoor and outdoor dining.

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT RATES AND POLICIES: Our rentals run 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 and those 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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: We are thirty year residents of St. John. My husband is a retired builder. We built Sago cottage with about 90% of our own labor. It was truly a labor of love. We designed the sort of cottage that we would like to stay in ourselves. We like privacy and beautiful views. When we vacation, natural beauty is our highest priority, During construction we went on a trip to a nearby island and were disappointed. We made a vow not to ever misrepresent our homes and to always do our best to insure your precious vacation time is well spent at one of our Calabash Cottages. We have stayed true to that for over 20 years. We are very happy to answer any questions to help you decide if Sago Cottage or one of our other Calabash Cottages is a good fit for you.

Why Calabash Boom, Coral Bay, Saint John, USVI:
View, view, view. We chose a piece of property with a fabulous view and designed and built Sago Cottage in a traditional Caribbean style. We hope you will love it!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our location is very quiet. Sago Cottage has all you need for a romantic vacation. We are extremely responsive to any questions or problems during your stay.
