About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come to Bay Rum Breeze to experience a luxurious and relaxing vacation. Enjoy the cooling breezes and spectacular views of Coral Bay, the east end of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Experience St. John-beautiful beaches, snorkeling, hiking, sailing, then come back to the villa and relax on the sundeck or take a dip in the pool. Enjoy the fabulous view even as you shower in your private outdoor shower or relax on your private deck. Dine on the covered veranda or inside in the comfortable great room. At night, watch the shooting stars from the stargazing deck.

Bay Rum Breeze was designed for the comfort of both couples and families. Park in the large driveway, enter through the mahogany door under the island stone archway to the vestibule with its tropical plants and fountain. The 2500 square feet of indoor living space (as well as over 1800 square feet of outdoor living space) provides ample room for privacy and relaxation. The entire house is on one level, except for the upper bedroom which is accessed by an interior stairwell. The large great room features exotic Brazilian granite, counter seating, dining table for up to 8, stainless steel appliances, a walk-in pantry, a laundry room, and a powder room. Stretch out on the fully-upholstered sectional sofa to watch the 42' TV, a DVD, relax with a book or plan the next day's activities. Off the great room is a private study, with a desk and queen sleeper sofa.

The covered deck has cushioned chaise lounges, a dining table and chairs, and a built-in grill. A few steps down leads to the sun deck with more comfortable seating. Just a few steps from the sun deck is the spa deck with a 5-person Hot Springs spa.

The three bedrooms are equally sized and all face the spectacular view. The cabana bedroom is separated from the main house by a covered deck and features a walk-in closet and an outdoor shower made of island stone. The lower bedroom has two twin extra long beds that can be made into a king bed. The upper bedroom features a king bed. Each bedroom has a private outdoor shower, a private deck, and a ceiling fan. There are wonderful breezes on Mamey Peak, but each bedroom is air-conditioned.

The stargazing deck offers a great view of the night sky-watch the stars while lying on the teak chaises and chairs. The home is also environmentally friendly-with passive and active solar energy, solar hot water, and a solar pool pump.

Enjoy Bay Rum Breeze-a beautiful villa on a beautiful island.

Beautiful Villa, Centrally located on STJ

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Bay Rum Breeze. The villa is beautiful, views are spectacular, and the layout was perfect for us. Two bedrooms in the main house (one room upstairs for us and one room downstairs for our two kids - the two bedrooms separated by interior stairs) and then a third bedroom in a separate structure (for another couple). The house was well stocked with kitchen items, towels, beach towels, etc. Ellen was a pleasure to work with and the location of the villa is very centrally located on the island - close to north shore beaches and not too far from coral bay. We definitely plan to come back!

Amazing time - can't beat the view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at BRB with our family of three girls (19, 18 and 15) before two of them head off to college. It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we've ever had together.

THE VILLA: The house was amazing. The views were spectacular and are even better than the pictures. Because we were up so high, it stayed relatively cool in the August heat - the direction the house faces also helps with afternoon shade and the morning sun was beautiful. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we used the grill outside by the pool a couple of times which was very convenient. The beds were comfortable and we loved the outdoor showers! The road up to the house was not for the faint of heart but manageable and entertaining. One day an afternoon storm blew through - thunder and lightening for several hours which is so unusual the locals were talking about it all week. It truly was an amazing afternoon playing cards, games and reading books. Very cool watching the storm come in over the BVIs and up the mountain. Well... until the power went out...but even then we drove down to Skinny Legs for dinner and to pick up some water and power was restored by the time we were back. Weather the rest of the week was perfect. Plenty of fun movies to watch and the sound system was excellent. The roof deck and hot tub were both fantastic as well. Bottom line, we felt at home!

THE LOCATION: We've stayed on St. John before closer to Cruz Bay so we hadn't experienced Coral Bay before. Even though some of the restaurants were closed, we loved exploring this side of the island. I forced them all to go to Miss Lucy's and it was one of their favorite meals. The Grouper Reuben was the easy winner. Indigo Grill was also delicious! We were so much closer to the beaches - Maho Bay is only 5 minutes away. We saw donkey, goats and cows every day. And the couple of nights that we went into Cruz Bay, the drive home was fine. Grocery stores seemed to be less expensive as well - the one by Aqua Bistro was more than adequate.

We all agreed at the end of the vacation that we would definitely rent BRB again if we're heading to St. John - trust me that you will not be disappointed. Destination St. John and Ellen were both great to work with and it was apparent that they wanted to make sure you had a great week!

Bay Rum Breeze = Bay Rum PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

3rd time staying at BRB. Views are tremendous. Close to Maho and Francis Beaches (our favorites). And Coral Bay is a mere 8 minute drive down the hill, away from the maddening crowd of Cruz Bay.

The house works well for a romantic stay for a couple, or can comfortably host three couples (each with private bathrooms).

When small issues arose (as they inevitably might), the management company was responsive and uber-polite.

All in all, a tremendous experience, and a good value.

20th Anniversary in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Bay Rum Breeze was an exceptional choice to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. The view is more spectacular than the pictures. The location of the house is near the highest point of the island and is convenient to Coral Bay and the north shore beaches. It is only 6 miles from Cruz Bay, but took about 20 minutes due to the winding roads. BRB provided the perfect balance of a feeling of total seclusion, with the security of having other houses nearby. We never dreamed that we would use a hot tub in June, but the elevation and constant wind provided for cool nights after sunny beach days. The coolness of the elevation and wind did limit our use of the pool at the house on overcast days, but the view more than made up for this drawback. It was only the two of us on this trip, but the house seems perfect for up to 3 couples as all three bedrooms have exceptional views. One bedroom is detached and would not be great for small children, but two bedrooms are in the main house. The rooftop deck is exceptional both day and night. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. The outdoor shower was amazing and we could not imagine a better view. All in all, BRB was perfect and hopefully we will be able to go back soon.
