Property description

Moonswept was named one of the Top 5 New Caribbean Villas of 2008 by Caribbean Way Canada Magazine. The villa is owned by two New York City musicians, Garry Dial and Terre Roche. If you are one of the many returning guests you'll be happy to hear that Moonswept has added a brand new hot tub to the amenities!

Moonswept is a picturesque retreat, high above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean with its scattering of islands, splendid in the morning sun and magical in the moonlight. The villa is a spacious getaway as far from the madding crowd as one could be, with the luxury of a villa and the serenity and natural beauty of an enchanted island.
When you enter the front door the high vaulted ceiling is a grand dome over the kitchen area, not unlike the sky itself. You're inside, but you're not cramped. Almost immediately you are called toward the Great Room by the most spectacular view of the sea through huge windows that give a sweeping vista of your surroundings. You'll want to stop and experience this moment fully. Many of our guests have remarked that the photographs on the website don't begin to evoke the feeling that comes with being at Moonswept.
The villa has plenty of cozy spaces in which to congregate, yet you'll never feel confined. The colors, the artwork on the walls, the furniture and all of the small details of design are elements mindfully added over time to maintain an environment in which each visitor can feel at home.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the modern conveniences. There are two equal-sized bedrooms, each with a large screen TV, two spacious bathrooms, laundry facilities, a large screen TV in the Great Room sitting area, a wine cooler and Wi-Fi throughout the house. If you feel like eating indoors, you can sit at the great Basque-style dining table in the center of the villa and watch the moods of the sea and sky changing moment to moment.
Out on the pool deck you'll sit under the awning in the shade and enjoy meals at the dining table, or soak up the sun's rays on the deck chairs by the pool in a completely private environment. There's a hot tub for soothing the tired muscles that we all seem to bring along with us. This is a great place from which to watch the night sky with it's stars, moon, satellites and comets inviting your mind to expand outward and reconnect with your true nature.
We sincerely hope that you can experience the beauty of the island of St. John through the wonder of Moonswept Villa and bring back with you some of her inspiration and serenity.

Four-wheel drive vehicle required.

St. John is a quiet and pristine haven mainly consisting of a State Park. It is known for having the most beautiful beaches in the world. Hiking, snorkeling, diving, swimming and boating are among the many activities for vacationers. It's restaurants are great, as it attracts many top chefs. There are a myriad of opportunities to dine outside on the beach, high above overlooking the state park and the ocean. You'll have to stop your car to wait as donkeys, goats, sheep, horses, cows and chickens cross the road. There are small boutique shopping areas where you will be able to find treasures to bring home. Opportunities abound for having massages, catered meals and sunset sails among the islands. Our caretaker, Dave, is a long-time island native and a really great guy! He can direct you toward many hidden treasures among the day trip offerings. In the house there are books about the history of the island that you can read as you take in the breathtaking view of the sea.

 

Manager info

About: We are two New York City musicians. When we arrive at Moonswept we exhale. It is the most exhilerating exhale we've ever experienced!

Why Johns Folly, St. John, USVI:
We never dreamed of buying a house in St. John. Through a series of magical events, we visited the island, performed some shows there, bought the land and a dear friend of ours helped build the villa.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike any other place we've ever been, Moonswept has a powerful effect on the soul, healing the wounds of stress and empowering us to return to our work lives in New York City.
