About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Welcome to Dove Cottage. This is St. John's first eco-luxury vacation rental. I re-designed the house to maximize the views and comfort while ensuring harmony with the environment. Around every corner is an incredible view and a welcoming daybed or chaise to curl up on with a book or a friend.

The north part of the house has a screen porch on the top floor- attached to the master bedroom- and overlooks the outdoor living room and pool area with views of the passing boats on the Sir Francis Drake channel and Tortola and Jost Van Dyke. The south side of the house also has a huge porch, as well as a garden with hammock, and views toward Coral Bay, the Caribbean sea and St. Croix.

I have lived here on and off for the past few years and have had a blast enjoying the house with my friends and family, but now it is time to share this special place with others. At Dove Cottage you are just minutes from amazing beaches and the town of Coral Bay, yet totally private and secluded to have fun and relax on your holiday. Enjoy!

Fall 2014 Rates: From $375 per night

Winter/Spring 2015 Rates: From $500 per night

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dove Cottage- so aptly named! Two weeks of utter peace and quiet and relaxation. We could feel a years worth of built up tension melting away within an hour of our arrival.

A gazillion stars at night, Tortola winking and blinking on the horizon, like a vast cruise ship in the dark, the sound of the tradewinds accompanied by the wind chime on the porch to lull us to sleep each night..

Brilliant blue, turquoise and jade green water sparkling in the morning sun... sudden rain squalls escorted down Sir Francis Drake passage by iridescent double rainbows... a surprise evening visit by a thirsty donkey.. lazy sun-filled days by the pool, devouring books, laughing, drinking wine, planning dinner.. how divine!

Thank you so much for sharing your charming island home with us- we have loved every minute here.

Gorgeous, serene, to-die-for views. House was lovely. Views from the screen porch of Tortola were enchanting. Pool was fantastic. Didn't want to leave.

Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to St John and we had looked around the island for the perfect location. Peace and solitude are very important to us and we found it at Dove Cottage! The pictures don't do it justice. The house sits high on a hill with spectacular views out both the front and back. It is very comfortable and clean and has everything you need, including great quality cooking tools. The bedrooms are upstairs, with a large master and two tiny singles. Great for a couple alone or with small children. The deck is huge with lots of seating options. We spent alot of time day and night, just drinking in the views. The only drawback was it rained daily so the cushions were always wet. The up side is there were lots of rainbows! One night we had very high winds which tore the screens on the upstairs porch. One call to the property manager in the morning and they were fixed when we returned in the afternoon. The owner, Aurora was also great to deal with and patiently answered all our questions. You definitely need a car. We loved it so much we already booked next year and can't wait to go back!

Perfect Vacation Home...Peaceful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our vacation and the relaxation and privacy of Dove Cottage was what made the vacation. Everything from the beauty of the scenery to perfectly decorated home, and everything you would need meet in the home. We loved relaxing on the porch by the pool and then enjoying coffee and a book in the morning on the front porch. The kitchen had everything you would need to make a perfect meal. My husband woke up from a nap to have 4 goats visiting him which has made for a great story.

If you are looking for peace and privacy but close to wonderful beaches and restaurants this is the house. The owner was wonderful to work with, so kind, helpful and quick to respond by email. The property manger was great and checked in with us but then just let us enjoy all of our time quietly.

We will be back, I told my husband I would not leave unless he promised. Thank you for opening your home to us we loved everything about Dove Cottage.

How lucky are we? We got to return for a second time to Dove Cottage for a blissful week's vacation in December. The house is so comfortable, the views are incredible, and we just soaked up the peace and relaxation that this lovely place exudes. Can't recommend highly enough!

We spent two glorious weeks at Dove Cottage recently. Utter peace and quiet, jaw-dropping views, a charmingly decorated cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need ... absolutely the most enjoyable, peaceful vacation we've ever spent. We didn't want to come home!
