Property description

Sea Spirit is a VERY private 600-sq foot cottage superbly located on top of a dramatic cliff with sweeping ocean views and great breezes. Your privacy is ensured by National Park surroundings. It has some of the best hush-hush snorkeling at the front of the house that exists on island... caves, live reefs and ultramarine blue drop offs with rays and dolphins. There is a resident spotted eagle ray at the front of the house. From its unique location you can walk to 2 pristine beaches. Kiddle Bay is very Maine-like with large flat stones that crackle at night, becoming sandy on one side. The other is Grootpan Bay and tends to be empty. If there is ever anyone there, it tends to be a nude beach. It is a mix of sand, small pebbles and coral. Both bays offer awesome snorkeling.

A short drive takes you to either Salt Pond Beach or the Lameshuur bays. Your constant companions are the umbrella of stars at night, the smell of salt air and the sounds of the wind and the waves and the occasional deer grazing in the yard. The restaurants and shopping amenities of Coral Bay are only minutes away, though you might prefer enjoying the deck. It won’t be long before your biggest worry is opting for sunset drinks at Sea Spirit or at one of the local eateries, stargazing while relaxing in the hot tub or enjoying the musical scene in Coral Bay.

What’s no dilemma is our rates, we challenge anybody to procure such an experience as Sea Spirit for the price. Such a well-appointed cottage in such a one-of-a-kind location simply can’t be compared to any other St John house. Should you go for the Sea Spirit experience, you have to be warned: you’ll be back!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Sea Spirit found me. When I walked onto this deck for the first time in my life I sat there for hours and watched the stars and moon shining on the sea. I felt a sea of spirit and not only knew that this house had captured me, but there was no doubt about its name, it was Sea Spirit. The healing quality of this little gem never failed me ever since. I know for sure that every new guest to Sea Spirit gets the same suckerpunch when he/she walks that deck. I hope you will enjoy this experience, too!

Why the Owner Chose Estate Mandahl (Johns Folly, St. John, USVI):
A unique "Old Style" St John experience awaits you at Sea Spirit.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Ultimate oceanfront experience with crashing waves, live reef below and the infinity of the sea on all sides.
