Property description

The Secret Seashell is a 3-bedroom/3.5 bath masonry ocean front villa located in the Coral Bay area, on the pristine and remote peninsula of Fortsberg Estate. Listen to the waves on the rocky shore below as you lounge under the shade of the gazebo, by the pool.

The thoughtful design of The Secret Seashell enables it to be rented as both a three-bedroom for six guests or, alternatively, as a one-bedroom villa for two, as the two bedrooms on the ground floor can be closed off. The two downstairs bedrooms have full private baths, small refridgerators, coffee makers and private ocean -view balconies. The master bedroom upstairs has a large outdoor shower connected to a private bath. With luxury linens, and every amenity, including beach chairs and coolers, The Secret Sea Shell is waiting to be discovered as the ideal vacation home.

The Great Room is designed with an open Caribbean-style floor plan, with a fully equipped and modern kitchen looking out into a gracious sitting area and the breathtaking private view beyond. The covered masonry balcony is a luxurious place to soak in the peaceful surroundings. The view is entirely private, with not another house in close proximity, surrounded by the pure elements of nature.

The special area of Estate Fortsberg, where this villa is located, is pristine and private, along a private road at the ocean's edge. It is graced by untouched shoreline, ideal for beach combing, and woods home to variety of wildlife including a great many birds. A corral along the country road leading to The Secret Sea Shell provides opportunities for horseback riding in the area. And yet, as private as this protected peninsula is, it is only a five-minute drive from the hamlet of Coral Bay with its eclectic good and affordable restaurants, shops and opportunities for watersports. The National Park, with its hiking trails and gorgeous beaches is also nearby. A more desirable situation cannot be found on the beautiful island of St. John.
