About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)


Now under new ownership this Luxury Villa has been completely remodeled inside and out.

Mystic Ridge was designed and built with quality lifestyle and love of beauty in mind. Perched high on a mountain ridge on its own private expanse of land surrounded by the National Park, this luxurious home offers dramatic and spectacular 'down island' views of the Drake Channel, the British Virgin Islands, St. John's East End, Coral Bay and the National Park mountainsides.

Enter into the mystic, to the spectacular Mystic Ridge Villa. From the driveway down stone steps you enter through two stately wrought iron gates. Surrounded by the lush tropical forest this private setting is one with nature.

The entry courtyard area includes a large round table with barrel bench seating for four and a white wood bench with bright blue pillows. This shaded area is the perfect spot for a game of cards, dominos or whatever suits your need.

The remodeled gourmet kitchen with bar seating for four, includes all stainless steel appliances and a side by side refrigerator/freezer with filtered water and ice dispensers.

An antique dining table with rattan chairs with padded cushions comfortably seats eight. The sitting area has two large white cushioned chairs, with small table and lamp, the perfect location to converse with the chef on duty or relax before or after dinner.

Mystic Ridge is 4200 square feet of luxurious living. The villa includes 4 bedrooms 4 1/2 baths, an expansive great room (26'X42'), ideal for entertaining, dining and casual living. The split level great room includes a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with countertop seating and formal dining area.

The large living space with a complete entertainment center including 60' TV, expanded digital cable, Phillips DVD/VCR player. Sherwood Tuner/Amplifier with Ipod/Mp3 hookup. Technic indoor speakers, Bose outdoor speakers and wireless DLS complete this electronics package.

The outside covered porch has shaded space for lounging on the outdoor sofa and ottoman or cool off on the comfy cushioned chaises under the shade of two market umbrellas after a long day at the beach.

Enjoy a home cooked meal or a catered dinner on the large outdoor dining table. The table has seating for eight with four large wicker chairs and bench seating with large comfortable pillows.

Nestled high in the trees, bordered by the National Park, this peaceful setting puts you at one with nature. Enjoy spectacular views of Coral Bay, the British Virgin Islands and the unspoiled East End of St. John from the pool or Jacuzzi. The view will take your breath away!!

The Dream, Master Suite amenities include king size bed, vaulted ceiling, multiple louvered windows with double screened French doors, a private balcony with seating for two, A/C, ceiling fan, telephone and tiled garden shower.

Gaze out to the unspoiled hillside of the National Park while bathing in your indoor/outdoor shower. Double sinks and vaulted ceilings give you a large sense of space. In addition there is a large closet with safe for all your valuables.

From the entrance it is just a short walk to the lower staircase which takes you down to the Serenity Master Suite which also includes a beautiful king bed with end tables and table lamps for each guest. Multiple louvered windows with double screened French doors, A/C, ceiling fan, and telephone make this quite the retreat. This master suite also includes an indoor/outdoor garden shower with double sinks and large closet for all your island attire as well as a dresser and mirror. A large private balcony awaits you just outside this suite with large wicker chairs to enjoy the view or catch up on some reading.

The Bliss Suite boasts high ceilings, romantic mahogany four poster queen bed and a large mahogany detailed armoire. The suite includes double screened French doors, private balcony with seating for two, A/C, ceiling fan, telephone and private bath. This suite enjoys the highest location with a fabulous down island view.

The Heaven Suite contains 2 twin beds, or the twins can be converted into a king, double screen French doors, private bath, a/c, ceiling fan, and multiple louvered windows to enjoy the scenic down island view and the refreshing tradewinds. The crystal clear pool awaits you just outside your door.

Lounge on the large bricked deck, swim in the pool (32'X12') 3 ft shallow end and 5 ft deep end, or relax in the hot tub in total privacy. For toddler safety, a nylon mesh barrier may be installed around the pool, for an additional fee and by advance request.

Our newest amenity is a fire pit situated on the edge of the deck. The natural stone wall is the perfect back drop with floor cushions and bar stools gives plenty of seating for all to enjoy this cozy space.

Allow St. John to seduce you by her natural beauty and Mystic Ridge to enrapture you by its magnificent views and comfortable living areas.

Located in the center of our small island means Cruz Bay (15 min), Coral Bay (10 min.), and North Shore Beaches (5 min.) are only brief drives away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to Mystic Ridge to celebrate my friends birthday. Loved laying on a raft at Hawksnest Beach, a boat trip to the BVI's. Enjoyed dinners, afternoons in the hot tub, the views and "The Robes" Loved the entire trip so much. No better way to celebrate my friends birthday week!

in the last week

This house is incredible!

I stayed with my boyfriend and two other friends, what a experience!!! Can't wait to go back into that piece of heaven!

Beautifully structured and designed with comfort coziness feeling.

I am amazed with the entire house specially for the LOVE it was added into the details it offers, such as into the careful organization of the polished silverware to the functionality of everything else that makes a house feels like home. Including but not limited in every kitchen aspect for 'Chefs-for-fun (or for real) experiences. The living room is very open and ventilated with it's fun exquisites books and curious tips in it, besides the comfy couch, blanket, sound and tv system; pool towels well placed around the house so you don't have to soak the entire floor when walking in or just cause it got unexpected chilly with the breeze... the bedrooms were super comfy with the best bed I've slept in few months (I stayed into the master suite with my boyfriend, and I can say he loved the bed as well :), the shower (one of my favorites), nice and with open windows so you can hear the nature symphony and appreciate it; I checked the other bedrooms, they were all with the same comfy bed style. The bath towels were crispy and clean with extra ones in the closets, extra everything actually! The pool was super clean so was the jacuzzi (definitely recommend after a day exploring the Island), and the view, oh my!!! The view is GORGEOUS!! Day or night!

Another favorite spot was a little piece out for the back garden where you can lay at night to see how beautiful the sky is without all those city lights... It was magical!

St. John has more than I imagined to be explored and I can not wait to go back, will definitely stay at Mystic Ridge Villa again!!!

Mystic Ridge is a beautiful place for family or friends to relax and refresh.It sits on the mountain top so you get fresh breezes night or day.It also has the most amazing view of the stars at night.I love that each bedroom has it's own bathroom and separate entrance.If u let Kathy know before you come.She can set up Jeep rental.We have a brand new Jeep for our stay. The house is fully stock with beach chairs & towels. Whether you chose to dine in or out the house has everything you need or need to you.St.John's is truly priceless. I guarantee you will never forget your visit. It's heaven on earth.

Best views on St John, cooling breezes, gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a stay at this villa. This was our third St John trip, but our first stay in the Bordeaux Mtn area. I would definitely recommend this villa and/or location. The views were far better than pictured, with cooling mountain breezes. It is very convenient to Maho Bay for snorkeling (where we saw many turtles), and to Coral Bay restaurants and bars, and quick shopping trips. Major shopping trips would still need to go over to Cruz Bay, but the ride is only 20 minutes or so. It also is probably one of the most easily accessible villas in Bordeaux, with a short, level driveway. Absolutely no need for 4 wheel drive on this trip!

The villa was very clean, and the kitchen was extremely well provisioned with high end cookware, numerous plates, platters, glasses, bowls, utensils, and gadgets. It also had some aluminum foil, paper products, saran wrap, ziplocs, and S&P already there, which was much appreciated. The rental agency included a welcome basket with cheese, crackers, chips, salsa, fruits, beer, chocolates, milk, water, juices, etc.

Bedrooms were all very comfortable with good mattresses, and nice bed linens. Great views from the master bedroom and 2nd floor queen bedroom on their private seating areas (porch). It is an east facing view, so be prepared to have the sun wake you... The showers have garden window(s), and nice quality towels.

The villa supplied numerous beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc. North shore beaches are very close, as are hiking trails.

The living room has 3 large couches and other seating as well, so it will definitely fit 8 people very easily. The decking is expansive and has many deck chairs, and you have good views throughout, with great views at the far end of the deck. It is easy to prepare meals and still converse with people on the deck. The landscaping is professional and very nicely done. There were several papaya trees with ripe fruit, but we didn't try any. The view is just fabulous, although we had some haze for the first few days (which cleared eventually). The hot tub is probably only suited to 4 persons. The pool was cool and refreshing, but seemed smaller than pictured. Nice stereo system with iPod adapter.

We only used 3 of the 4 bedrooms, and while we didn't actually see the 4th, I don't know that I would recommend it. It is only accessible by stairs, no view, and no A/C (and not sure it would get a breeze).

Mystic Ridge is close to Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Mystic Ridge is as close to Heaven as one can get! From the minute one pulls into the very easily accessible driveway at this home, the views will take your breath away. Everything we needed was at Mystic Ridge from comfortable beds, spacious rooms, well-appointed kitchen to the welcoming pool and hot tub. Breezes were plentiful day and night at this wonderful home. It is almost in the middle of the island, which makes it very convenient to Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, the northshore and southshore beaches, restaurants and shopping. The kitchen is truly a gourmet kitchen with amazing views -- it makes cooking a pleasure! Four couples had ample room to be together and lots of spaces for privacy as well. Go and ENJOY!!
