Other Amenities

  • The Villa is located on The UPPER DECK, which was the sight of the first restaurant on St. John. It was located there because of the view and was the sunset gathering spot of the island. A hurricane destroyed all but one building in 1989. The restaurant never re-opened, but the houses were re-designed and re-built. Another hurricane in 1995 struck, but damaged only the exterior decks and a few windows. ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: As a yacht designer, I have sailed most of the Caribbean. St John is by far the best place to live and vacation. You will also be talking to my daughter, Marcia, who manages the bookings and finances. My home, Callaloo, is mid island on St John, and my boat is in Coral Bay. Before buying in St. John, We considered settling on St. Barths. I weighed the pros and cons of each place. St. Barths offers a bit of Paris (a place I adore), but St. John offered a lot more of everything else. Dependable, affordable phone and internet service, 22 beaches, good dining (although pricey), affordable air fares, hiking trails, and the heavy hand of the US Government which keeps St. John safe, beautiful, and accessible to all. We respect nature, wildlife, beaches, reefs, and the sea. We adore our wild donkeys!
