NOTE: Despite its name, Christmas Winds survived both hurricanes undamaged, and is completely ready for guests this season. We look forward to seeing you!
Enjoy a peaceful, private and perfect vacation at our home, a tropical paradise escape at an affordable price point. Christmas Winds' proximity to Cruz Bay makes it an ideal “home base” to enjoy all that St. John has to offer, while also feeling at home in your own, exclusive setting. The air conditioned house has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, each on a different level, giving maximum privacy for couples or a family of four.
The bedroom on the main level has a queen size bed and a full bath with shower, as well as ceiling fans. The bedroom on the lower level has twin beds or a king size bed, television, a full bath with shower, sitting area, a deck and air conditioning -- though the relaxing trade winds and Christmas breezes, for which the home is named, make it comfortable without. This lower level has its own entrance and is approached by an outside staircase.
The house is a quick 10-minute drive (a little over a mile) to the center of Cruz Bay, 8 minutes to grocery stores, and 15 minutes to the pristine, white sand beaches of the North Shore.
Guests especially enjoy kicking back after a day at the beach to experience St. John’s magnificent sunsets -- perhaps even glimpse the elusive green flash as the sun sinks into the Caribbean Sea -- from the lounge chairs or table on our expansive double deck, which faces southwest toward Chocolate Hole, Rendezvous Bay and the island of St. Croix. The water views are breathtaking!
After taking it all in, easily prepare and eat your own meal in our fully equipped kitchen and dining area (or outdoor gas grill), then relax further in the living room -- which has a flat-screen smart television, cable, wi-fi internet and DVD player -- or simply unplug and unwind to the natural symphony of the forest, as cooling breezes rustle the surrounding canopy outside. We even have a small library of beach reads for your enjoyment. Ahhh... blissful!
Christmas Winds as a whole is a well-maintained wood home with ceramic tile floors, native stonework and high ceilings. The atmosphere in the house is informal, and the home is ideal for one or two couples, or a relaxing honeymoon. The home is also good for a family with older children who can sleep on a separate level from parents. There is no maid service, but it is thoroughly prepared for guests and cleaned upon departure, and our house manager is happily on call for any questions. There are linens, beach and bath towels and a full laundry with washer and dryer, as well as beach chairs and some beach accessories and pool toys for guest use (snorkel fins and masks, boogie board, etc.).
Do feel free to email with any questions. We hope to see you soon on St. John!
