About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Sweet Wind is a West Indian style home that sits just above secluded Hurricane Hole. The villa is very private, quiet and secluded, being in the Nat. Park, but it's just 1/2 mile from Coral Bay which sports live music most nights, shopping and fine or informal dining. Just a short walk down there's a pebble beach with good snorkeling and there are 4 kayaks available to explore the 5 bays that include Hurricane Hole. I designed and built the place in the more traditional West Indian style of 3 individual buildings with large decks connecting them. The main house being the kitchen, living room,and dinning room. There is a bedroom and bathroom attached via a private deck on the West side of the main house. On the East side of the main house there is a 3rd building, housing 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a large deck in between w/ dining table and lounge chairs. All the rooms have views, you feel like you are floating right over the ocean, and this layout makes them very private.A lot of love and care went into designing Sweet Wind, it's my own private art gallery, with hardwood floors, Purple Heart cabinets, fine dishes, antique furniture, local treasures and a bit of humor. There are two separate decks for complete privacy. One of the showers is outside, built with beautiful rock work. The bedrooms are in separate buildings,or pods which adds to the beauty and privacy. There is a lovely grotto behind the villa with an amazing stone retaining wall 9' tall and 100' long running all along the back side, that has the BBQ, orchids, flowers and herbs, and an outside shower. The villa has gates at both entrances that keep the wild donkeys out and children in. You wake up to a amazing sunrise above Hurricane Hole. This is the most protected harbor in the Caribbean, and we look out over the Coral Reef National Monument, so there is no overnight mooring allowed unless there is a storm warning. Sweet Wind is very quiet and private but just 1/2 a mile from town and you don't hear all the music and noise from Coral Bay
I think the photos say it all, Nina.

Other Activities: Sweet Wind is in the National park and there are many trails nearby to choose from. Check out the map,enjoy.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I live with my dog Lucy here in beautiful Hurricane Hole. I am a painter and a musician. I use oils, pastels and watercolours, and enjoy playing the mandolin, banjo and slide guitar. I had a salmon troller for most of my life and fished out of Sitka Alaska.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Zootenvaal, Saint John, USVI:
Sweet Wind is just above Hurricane Hole in the National Park and overlooks Coral Reef National Monument. Boats can not overnight moor in the Coral Reef Nat. Monument and there are almost no other houses in view. Park trailheads are a short walk away,and It's very quiet and peaceful here, the view is amazing, and still close to town. The snorkeling and kayaking available here at Sweet Wind in Hurricane Hole make this a special place for outdoor enthusiasts.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is a West Indian style with hip roofs, three pods with private decks between, with greenheart floors, cyprus wainscoting and antique Caribbean furniture. The full kitchen has beautiful antique caribbean style purple heart cabinets with stone countertops. Open the back kitchen door and there is a lovely grotto, with a gas barbeque and a potted garden full of herbs herbs and spices. The villa affords great views and privacy. The views from most every room feel like you are floating over the ocean, all you see is water and Nat. park land. It is breathtaking and amazingly private. You hear no noise from the bands in Coral Bay.
