LEEWARD ST JOHN is a luxury modern villa beautifully situated on the South shore of St. John. Overlooking the tranquil Rendezvous Bay, the house is only an 8 minute drive from Cruz Bay town centre making this the perfect location for your stay in St. John.

Leeward is positioned to capture some of the best views on the island, with all rooms and the deck enjoying fantastic vistas of the south shore of St. John, the Caribbean Sea and St. Croix 40 miles away.

An arched entranceway with an impressive 9 ft solid mahogany door leads you to the spacious kitchen and indoor dining area, with vaulted ceilings and full height windows allowing you to drink in the breathtaking Rendezvous Bay below. With Thermador appliances, breakfast bar and Subzero wine fridge, the kitchen is fully equipped for even the most discerning chef's needs.

The views continue from the vaulted Great Room, which with comfortable seating and 60 inch TV provides the perfect space for relaxing indoors. From here, French doors open onto the expansive coral stone deck. Within the outdoor Pavilion is a shaded seating area as well as a bar and grill, whilst the deck has space for plenty of sun loungers. The south facing aspect ensures you can enjoy the Caribbean sun long into the late afternoon.

The best vistas are perhaps enjoyed from within the inviting 47 ft infinity edge pool, which steps from 4ft to 6 ft in depth, and appears to join the ocean below.

Leeward's four bedrooms are furnished with king sized beds and 42 inch TVs. All are ensuite, which are beautifully tiled and fitted with rain shower heads. The two upper floor bedrooms have covered balconies which create the perfect spot for your morning coffee or a moment of solitude looking out over the bay.

The house has A/C throughout with numerous ceiling fans ensuring comfortable temperatures.

We are environmentally conscious at Leeward, and a large array of solar panels are fitted out of sight beneath the house. Rain water and grey water is captured and used to water the luscious garden, in which we take pride. Power outages do occasionally occur in the USVI, so the house is equipped with state of the art battery back up power.

In summary, Leeward is a beautiful family house with well crafted details and upscale furnishings to ensure your vacation is a memorable one. We and numerous returning guests have enjoyed Leeward for 16 years, and with the recent remodelling we are extremely confident that it will continue to provide premium accommodation for those visiting St. John.

Manager info

About: We first traveled to St. John in 1994, with two very young children in tow, desperate to escape the London winter blues. Earlier in our marriage we'd travelled to a number of Caribbean islands, but the beauty of St. John was just awe inspiring. On that very first visit we purchased land, beginning a long and wonderful association with the Island of St. John. Leeward St John was completed in 1999. As our family grew and aged, the one constant in all our lives was Leeward. In their early years, the children spent time in the shallows of Maho Bay, playing and learning to snorkel, but also accompanied us on hikes and more adventurous outings as their confidence grew. Now we do all that, but can also throw in an hour at the Beach Bar or Woodys! Leeward has provided countless memories as the family has grown up. The London winters are still dreary, and we escape frequently to St. John. The lure of the island is strong, and even after 20+ years there is a rush of anticipation as we prepare for another visit. In 2015 we decided that it was time to extensively upgrade the house. We sought the expertise of well respected local architect Michael Milne, which has resulted in the breathtaking incarnation of Leeward you see today. It is a gorgeous island, and a beautiful house from which to enjoy it. Our family has done so, and judging by the number of repeat guests at Leeward, some stretching back over 12 years, many others have done so to. We prefer to call guests 'Friends of Leeward' as opposed to 'Visitors'. We do hope you'll find time to visit St. John, and if your travel plans incorporate another villa, that is fine too. Enjoy the natural beauty of St. John. We know you'll be back.

Why Rendezvous & Ditleff (Bethany, Cruz Bay, St. John 00830, USVI):
The South shore of St John is a popular destination for visitors. Rendezvous Bay is the most beautiful of the residential areas on the south shore, and Klein Bay is a charming and picturesque community within Rendezvous. We were fortunate to buy this plot long before the real estate boom. It is a choice lot, high enough to benefit from the gentle trade breeze, but low enough to feel as if you can step off the deck in to the ocean. The house faces due south making the pool and deck a favoured place. Enjoying an early morning coffee on the deck overlooking Ditleff Point, lounging on the pool side furniture soaking up the sun shine, laying on a pool float listening to music from the outdoor speakers, or having a late afternoon cocktail are all options you'll want to consider. And the night sky is a a joy to behold. The house itself benefits from high quality finishings. Yet it is not pretentious. Maintenance and cleanliness are high on the agenda, so you can relax in comfort. A/C and copious ceiling fans throughout the property keep it cool. There are stunning views from every aspect. We're a pretty active family, and after a day out on the latest adventure, nothing beats coming back to Leeward, firing up the BBQ, and sipping a cold beer or a rum cocktail whilst looking out over the ocean. No Caribbean property is complete without a garden and we take pride in the gardens at Leeward. It can be challenging at times, but there is a good array of mature palms and shrubs, fruit trees including mango, banana, coconut, star fruit and lime. I like to rise early and wander about the garden watching the humming birds feed and marvel at the colours of the foliage and tropical flowers. Leeward is a well maintained upmarket, family house with beautiful furnishings. Its views are unsurpassed, with many guests enjoying fabulous memories of the house. I feel confident you will too.
