About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Villa Carolina is a private and serene slice of paradise located in a prestigious area of Coral Bay known as Upper Carolina. Its highly elevated perch is nestled in the hillside bordering the Virgin Islands National Park. The bars, restaurants, and quaint shops of Coral Bay are just five minutes down the hill. The famous North Shore beaches of St. John are less than 10 minutes away. Francis Bay and Maho Bay are the closest. Several beaches toward the East End, like Vie's and Haulover, are also about a 10 minute drive. The incredibly pleasant sands of Salt Pond are maybe 15 minutes away. It's the perfect spot to enjoy both sides of the island.

THIS EXCLUSIVE, GATED LOCATION AFFORDS UNINTERRUPTED, 225 DEGREE, PANORAMIC VIEWS over the Carolina Valley, all of Coral Bay, out the East End of St. John toward Norman, Peter, Salt, Cooper, Ginger, and Beef Islands, and all the way to Virgin Gorda. That's 30 miles! Directly to the northeast is Drake's Channel and West End, Tortola. Spectacular sunrises on the deck are a sight to behold and star gazing evenings are out of this world. It's unforgettable 'postcard' scenery.

Relax on the expansive pool deck. Sit back in the fully reclining lounge chairs, or retreat to the comfortable wicker furniture in the shade. Float the day away in the infinity edge pool. Read a book and watch the sail boats dance the aqua blue Caribbean. Bring the blender outside and mix up a 'Painkiller'. Fire up the barbecue and enjoy a meal of local fish or lobster at the outdoor dining table. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

Wireless internet access is available throughout the house and poolside, for those of you that just can't seem to leave the real world behind. Shame on you.

The spacious Great Room with cathedral ceilings invites you to relax on the plush Tommy Bahama furniture. Five sets of mahogany French doors flow to the sunny pool deck to make for easy outdoor living. Arched breezeways allow the refreshing trade winds to circulate the villa. Ceiling fans abound, and Mexican tile floors are just another touch of class. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to prepare fantastic meals in style, and your chef will have plenty of room to get down to business. We haven't overlooked a thing; gas range, dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator with ice maker, coffee maker, toaster, and a kitchen island with an additional bar sink.

Two bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the Great Room for complete couples privacy. They are similar sized master suites and both have French doors overlooking the pool deck. Identical bathrooms have spacious closets, tiled double vanities and open-air stone grotto showers. An internal staircase leads down to the third bedroom with a private deck and a full bath with stone shower. All bedrooms have queen size beds and the third room has an extra daybed. All bedrooms also have A/C, but it's rarely needed because of the great breezes and ceiling fans.

Villa Carolina is extremely popular and has many repeat guests, so we recommend booking early (6 months advanced) to reserve your week in paradise. If for some reason we are not booked within 30 days of your desired vacation time, please contact us, as we often provide discounts for rentals on short notice.

WE APOLOGIZE, BUT BECAUSE OF LEGAL ISSUES WITH THE POOL, WE CANNOT PERMIT CHILDREN AGES 8 MONTHS TO 8 YEARS TO STAY AT VILLA CAROLINA. SORRY. We do occasionally make exceptions. Just ask.

Please do not hesitate to contact Sean by e-mail with any questions or comments. If Villa Carolina is not the right size or location for your party, Sean can also refer you to other villas. Thank you............and tell a friend!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I have been visiting St. John for about 30 years. This incredible island grabbed a hold of me on my first trip, and I had hoped to one day have my own piece of paradise. I've been fortunate enough to make that happen, and lucky enough to share it with others.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Carolina (Coral Bay, St. John, USVI):
If you've ever visited St. John, then you can certainly understand why anyone would want to own a home here. We chose the Coral Bay area to be 'on the quiet side' and we chose the home site for the view and elevated location. We also considered this a very easy and convenient spot to enjoy both sides of the island. While looking at the property for a possible purchase back in 1988, we had to climb a tree to see the view. We almost fell out! When we had the home built in 2000 and 2001, we made sure to leave that tree, and it is right at the top of the driveway now.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The location of the property provides for some of the best views on the island. There's just no way that any picture can do it justice. Sunrises are truly amazing. The Villa borders the National Park and is totally private. There is no through traffic. A true escape.
