Palm Cottage and Palm Studio are built along the face of a gentle knoll overlooking Coral Harbor, Hurricane Hole and the East End of St. John. The two cottages receive constant trade winds, open to beautiful views and are surrounded by mature native and planted vegetation providing surprising privacy in a small community. The two cottages are attached but have separate entrances and lie at different elevations on the hillside and individual privacy was a design priority. Palm Cottage can be rented as a one bedroom sleeping 2-3 and Palm Studio, new in 2014 can be rented as a studio for 2 guests and has been built to provide an affordable alternative to the recently closed Maho Bay Camps. Our driveway is paved and safe, but requires a small 4wd or All wd vehicle.
Palm Cottage has been providing lodging since 2007 and accommodates 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children. It has a newly added one bedroom queen, with one bath and full kitchen, living area, deck, porch and outdoor garden shower. The living area has a high quality futon that can accommodate 1 adult or 2 younger children.
Palm Studio, with a private entrance and a flight down has a queen, bath, outdoor garden shower, galley kitchen and an ocean view deck with a view to die for.
The two cottages are rented individually or combined at a better rate for larger groups that want a bit more privacy, bath access and quiet spots than a two bedroom might provide.
Lie in any bed or lounge on the porch or deck looking out over the boats at anchor in Coral Bay, the lush green of Fortsberg and gentle breezes carry you into a Caribbean state of mind. Both are located in Estate Carolina on the south side of King Hill Road.
On Palm Cottage, a large deck fronts the ocean view on the rear and a smaller shade deck on the west side provides the perfect morning or afternoon getaway.
Palm Cottage and Palm Studio are 'Green Villa's', built to local 'green' standards' to have a low impact on the fragile island environment. Site planning, drainage, building structure, water management, energy conservation and landscaping have been given serious consideration in limiting the impacts of this cottage on the surrounding environment. We are constantly trying to improve and lessen our footprint. If you care about comfort and limiting your environmental 'footprint', staying in Palm Cottage or Palm Studio is right for you. Modest, affordable, conservation oriented but a spectacular experience.
This rural area of Coral Bay, nestled 200 feet above the harbor has a 180 degree view of Coral Bay, Norman Island, Hurricane Hole and the Carolina Valley. Watch the sun and moon rise from a knoll that seems to be nestled in the palms along the harbor edge. The sleepy town lies spread below you, rural sounds filling the air. Constant breezes let you drink in the beauty of Fortsberg and the East End. Many world class beaches, fine restaurants, local craft shopping, are all nearby. There are several nearby trailheads that allow hiking access from Palm Cottage. We can provide great recommendations.
Dr. Barry Devine, a co-founder of the Island Green Living Association of St. John and a well-known island naturalist and author of the Field Guide 'Island Peak to Coral Reef' and his wife Diane, a retired educator and avid tropical gardener are your knowledgeable hosts who can provide recommendations and advice on what to do and where to go. We also operate East End Adventures, Paddle board tours to remote locations for snorkeling and beach-combing to the best places paradise has to offer. We specialize in the best snorkeling, beach combing, and coastal ecological adventures around the north, east and south sides of the island. Paddle board the best bays on St. John. If you love the ocean you will love these informative trips from a local waterman and naturalist.

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: We came to St John in 1985 for a visit and returned many times after. In 1996 we began building Agave Cottage and moved here full time in 1999. I worked as a scientist; swam, hiked, explored, observed, made maps, and did environmental projects. My wife, Diane, is a retired educator and master gardener. She spent 30 years working in education and now volunteers in the community and passes it forward. We came here for a vacation and it changed the direction of our lives and many other lives along the way. Palm Cottage and Palm Studio may change your life too.
Why the Owner Chose Lower Carolina, Coral Bay, St. John, USVI:
Palm Cottage and Palm Studio sit perched on the turn of a hillside. We visited St. John in the mid 80's, felt very comfortable and were drawn to the place for a decade before we came to stay. Coral Bay especially is a very neat place with interesting residents. The pace of life, the neighborhood feeling and the beautiful environment were what we wanted to enjoy more of in our future. Its a great island to chill or explore. It has an active, positive community surrounded by natural paradise. In 2006, we built Palm Cottage as a studio for the vacation rental market. We sold the original Agave Cottage in 2012 to ease the workload. We added a bedroom to Palm Cottage and recently completed Palm Studio for 2014. If you have been here before, it is sweeter than ever, bigger and with the same affordable rates.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We never tire of the calming view, the relaxing feeling of a small oceanside community. Palm Cottage and Palm Studio are quiet, private, comfortable, convenient, affordable and close to everything Coral Bay and St. John offer.
