Property description

"The "Studio" at Bella Vista, is true to it's name. A mountain retreat with spectacular views of picturesque Caribbean Sea & British Virgin Islands, this newly renovated Studio allows for lots of privacy & sliding doors that open onto their own deck and screen room. You can enjoy the breeze as well as the views, which extend from Jost Van Dyke across Tortola & out to Virgin Gorda. From the parking area of this St. John vacation rental, follow the winding steps through beautifully terraced gardens to a private outside staircase to access the studio on the first floor. From the entry, step in to this quaint Studio with an Eat-in kitchen, Queen Bed and bath with shower and double vanity.

NOTE: This home is managed by its owners Mark & Annie, who reside in the main house on the upper level, with separate entrance. You will rarely see the owners, but they are readily available to address your needs.

Luxurious decorating and wonderful art have been combined with beautiful tile floors to create a quaint, yet comfortable interior in this very special island Studio.

A full kitchen, has a full stove, microwave, and refrigerator and coffee maker. Beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and an umbrella are available.

There is a queen bed and a private full bath and both the bedroom and kitchen have ceiling fans, or leave the sliding doors open and enjoy the tropical breezes.

The Studio at Bella Vista is wonderful for a secluded honeymoon, and is equally comfortable for one person, or a couple.

This St. John rental is five miles (20 minutes) from Cruz Bay on Centerline Road and then one and a half miles on the paved Bordeaux Mountain Road. The last .25 mile to Bella Vista is unpaved (4WD is A MUST), and is an adventurous drive. It is a six minute drive to the North Shore Beaches; three minutes to the Reef Bay Trail; seven minutes to Coral Bay; From the front door, you can hike the Bordeaux Mountain Trail to Lameshur Beach in one hour.

St. John is reached from St. Thomas via a twenty min. ferry ride. St. Thomas is primarily serviced by Delta, American, US Air and United from the states.

NOTE: This home is managed by its owners Mark & Annie, who reside in the main house on the upper level, with separate entrance. You will rarely see the owners, but they are readily available to address your needs.

NOTE, NOTE: If you are not adventurous, our house may not be for you, as the last 1/4 mile to our house is off road. It's really not bad, but it's not paved - if you've driven on hilly dirt roads with rocks before, then you'll be fine. The ride is worth the view. This ain't Kansas any more Toto...

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Hi! We're Mark and Annie, the owners of Bella Vista. We live in New Jersey most of the year with our Island dog Bella and visit St. John in the winter to escape the cold and the snow. We've owned Bella Vista since 2003 and throughout the years have added our personal touches to make this our "Home away" from home. We're happy to share it with you and we hope you enjoy your stay!

Why Upper Carolina (Coral Bay, St. John, USVI):
We like the privacy and tranquility of Bella Vista, and waking up to the stunning views every morning. It's close enough, and far enough, from everything you need.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The View (not the show on TV).
