Come relax in our custom built home overlooking the vast Caribbean. Built in thermal chimneys are a natural way to keep the house cool and the tradewinds at a maximum. Unique indoor gardens compliment the astonishing Caribbean views. We are a 10 minute walk to Cruz Bay, yet just far enough out of town to enjoy peace and quiet. We look forward to making you feel welcome and comfortable and assisting you with all of your vacation wishes! NON-heavy drinkers preferred. Owner's live on property below rental house. Smoking is allowed (outside please). Guest privacy is highly respected. Enjoy your day!

Owner Description/Comments:: Year Purchased: 2000 - The house was offered to us by the original owners, as we were regular renters. After the passing of my mom in 2002, the decision was made to pack my dad up and move with him to his beloved island and away from New York winters. We love that we can make our home a special get away for others, as it was originally for us.

Breathtaking views from a beautiful breezy home.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Serena for the incredible accommodations, and the delicious homemade cookies. We would love to come back some day, and relax at the home a bit more. Everything a person could need is provided at the home, and it is absolutely perfect for two couples.

Love love love

  • 5 of 5

We truly could not have loved our stay at Casa Contant more. It was my ultimate dream house, beautiful views, and comfortable accommodations. Perfectly appointed with everything you could need for any snorkeling/beach trip in St John and situated very close to town. Just the perfect place.

Incredibly relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contant is one of the best places to relax on St. John. It is close to town and restaurants. The house offers one of the best views on the island. The deck overlooks St. Thomas, and all the water activities in between - ferries, sail boats, yachts, and cruise ships. We enjoyed the plunge pool after a day at the beach. Extremely refreshing!

Serena is a wonderful host. Whatever we needed was at the house when we arrived. Even though she lives on the property, she is very respectful of her guests' privacy. Will we return? You bet! Thanks Serena for sharing Casa Contant with us!

Fantastic find in St John

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week in St. John. This house is perfect for two couples and in a great location for views, breezes, and getting to town. It is also well-situated for getting on the Northshore and Centerline Roads for getting out to the East End and south beaches. House is cool and breezy and well-equipped with guidebooks and stuff for the beach. It is tastefully decorated and the abundance of plants in the entry and in the house gives a wonderful tropical feel. We rented snorkeling gear before we discovered the closet that is full of high-end gear, so save yourself some trouble and $$. We used the grill and went to town mostly for happy hour on the way back from a day of snorkeling. As others have noted, Serena left fresh flowers and cookies for us (which we devoured - thanks, Serena!). Communications were great and although we never did meet in person, we appreciated the hospitality! We also recommend a snorkeling trip with Low Key Watersports, jeep rental with L and L, and coconut pina coladas at Joe's Rum Hut. We would go back here in a heartbeat!

Best place to stay on St John!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed mid February and couldn't have asked for a nicer place. Spacious, roomy, very comfortable. Magnificent view of St Thomas and the surrounding islands from the large warp-around deck. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood yet minutes away from the ferry dock, restaurants, grocery stores, gas station and beaches. Would definitely go back!
