Property description

THE HAWKS NEST is a finely crafted small home with an ideal location on private property inside the borders of the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park and within walking distance of five different beaches. The North Shore beaches of Hawksnest, Gibney, Denis, Jumbie and Trunk Bay are all within a 10-20 minute walking distance. For more activity, the tennis courts, spa, beaches & restaurants of the world-famous Caneel Bay Resort are also on the North Shore, and Cruz Bay is a ten minute drive.

Perched among the trees 97-feet above Hawksnest Bay, the home looks across the water to Caneel Bay Resort and further west to the sunset over St. Thomas and other out-islands. Enjoy the three-sided view from the greatroom to watch the birds fly by during breakfast. Relax for a pleasant time in the garden among the native trees and wild orchids. Walk to a different North Shore beach every day! For a spectacular sunset dinner, enjoy the full-length covered deck at home. In the evening, retire to the master suite which includes a king-size bed, TV/DVD, a spacious sitting area, powder room and stone shower al fresco.

Over the summer of 2016, the Hawks Nest will undergo substantial restoration, consistent with its Caribbean cottage roots. Ecologically-oriented architect Doug White is making sure that the cottage retains its open air feel, but screens will be able to be drawn if needed. Guests will enjoy a new kitchen and bath, spectacular new outdoor stone shower, and expanded bedroom and decks.

The Hawks Nest location gives guests who enjoy walking the option, and savings, of not being required to rent a car. The National Park road is a 3-minute walk down the hillside road that leads from the home. Taxi-vans run along the Park road during the day and can provide a quick lift to Caneel Bay Resort or a 10-minute ride into the town of Cruz Bay for more dining choices and unique gallery shopping. Some guests still choose to rent a car to be able to more easily explore the island, and, if so, you should reserve a small 4-wheel drive vehicle on St. John.

STAY AT THE HAWKS NEST AND ENJOY A VERY SPECIAL NORTH SHORE LOCATION !
