About the Property
Three Bedroom, Three Bath Villa, With Numerous High-end Amenities
The pool is solar heated, and at night, the pool light slowly changes colors, with its diffuse hues illuminating the courtyard. The seven-person hot tub is mounted flush with the main deck, and offers panoramic ocean and sunset views. The addition of wide, gentle stairs down to the new lower sundeck provides unobstructed “infinity deck” ocean views from the entrance, pool, and deck chairs.
Coconuts single-level floor plan consists of four hip-roofed buildings centered around the solar heated pool and interior courtyard, and connected by decks, covered walkways, and patio gardens.
Coconuts provides the ultimate in Caribbean indoor/outdoor living. Its outdoor living areas include an interior garden courtyard, the main pool deck with its large, built-in spa, the gazebo with its dining table, couch, chairs, and outdoor sound system, the new billiard porch with its pool table, outdoor kitchen and sound system, and a large new lower sundeck with wrap-around bench seating. Unusual for St. John, Coconuts' grounds are flat and walkable, with large front and side lawns, gorgeous tropical landscaping, and mature fruit trees. An elegant and accurate brass sundial graces the ocean view lawn, and botanical plant labels identify many of the plantings.
Dining options are extensive, and include the great room table for six, the gazebo dining table for six, granite counter dining for six by the outdoor kitchen, and a table for four on the lower sun deck. Dine in the gazebo, at a table with some of the finest ocean and sunset views on St. John.
Coconuts is among only a few St. John villas that offer two kitchens; a fully enclosed main kitchen with a breakfast bar for entertaining the chef, and a complete outdoor kitchen facing the view in the new billiard porch. The outdoor kitchen includes a built-in 36 inch gas grill, Teppanyaki cook surface, dual side burners, hot water sink, fridge, illuminated bar, and granite counter dining for six.
The great room includes a high-definition 100 inch front projection system with a subwoofer, as well as a 42' flat screen TV. Use either to watch a movie from our extensive Blu-ray library, your favorite TV show or sporting event, or photos and videos taken during your visit to St. John. An HD-DVR allows you to record shows or games while you are at the beach, or out on the town.
Coconuts shares ownership with the adjacent villa on Gifft Hill, Plumeria vrbo 472847, and the two villas can be rented together, accommodating larger groups with up to sixteen guests. Lush tropical landscaping provides complete privacy between the two villas, which each have their own large, level, and fully walkable lot. For joint villa rentals, a gate between their lots is unlocked, allowing guests to walk freely between the grounds.
Play a game of pool or table tennis in the new billiard porch, cook and entertain in the beautiful outdoor granite kitchen, enjoy the star-filled skies from the hammock deck, or simply relax in the gazebo, pool, and spa. Whatever you prefer, Coconuts is a truly remarkable villa for your visit to the beautiful island of St. John!

NOTES: Coconuts has proven to be a very popular villa, so advance planning may be needed to secure a reservation for your chosen dates.
Coconuts is exceptionally well documented. Feel free to contact us and ask for a copy of 'Welcome to Coconuts', which has lots of detailed information about both Coconuts, and the island of St. John.
We will accept stays of less than seven nights. For these shorter stays, we charge a premium over the pro-rated daily rate of 10% for each day less than seven. For example, a five day stay would be the weekly rate * 5/7 * 1.20, where the 1.20 is the 20% premium for a stay two days less than a week. This is to cover fixed villa turnaround expenses such as housecleaning, laundering, and pool and spa maintenance. This less than seven night premium is waived for gap openings, where the villa is already rented contiguously before and after your stay. VRBO's rental charge calculator is not set up to process stays shorter than one week; contact us if you are interested in a shorter stay.

About St. John:
Travelers have once again voted St. John their #1 Caribbean destination in 2013, and for good reason. Thanks to the foresight of the philanthropist and naturalist Laurence Rockefeller, two-thirds of St. John has been and will in perpetuity be preserved in its original state, as part of the U. S. Virgin Islands National Park. Its 35 picture-perfect white sand beaches are each unique, with many of these lying within the boundaries of the National Park. As a result, when you turn away from the Caribbean Sea and look inland, you witness unspoiled virgin green hillsides, looking much as they did back in 1493, when Christopher Columbus discovered and named these islands. St. John's hilly terrain, and the literally hundreds of islands and cays that surround it, provide unmatched vistas and photographic opportunities from all around the island. The V.I. National Park maintains dozens of excellent hiking trails, and well preserved ruins from the era of the sugar mills allow you to step back in time to that earlier period. Despite large tracts of undeveloped natural beauty, St. John also offers extensive fine dining options, and the seaside village of Cruz Bay has many interesting shops to peruse.
If this will be your first visit to St. John, you are in for a treat!
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Kevin and Danielle McCarthy purchased Coconuts in 2010, and began extensive expansion, remodeling, and upgrades, which were completed in early 2012. Coconuts has since become one of the most popular rental villas on St. John. In 2013, we had an opportunity to purchase the adjacent villa on Gifft Hill, Plumeria vrbo 472847, which allows larger groups of up to sixteen guests to be accommodated. At both Coconuts and Plumeria, we are singularly focused on making the guest experience the finest it can possibly be.
Why the Owner Chose Estate Glucksberg and Grunwald, Saint John, USVI:
We were in the market for a villa with incredible ocean views, sunsets, Caribbean indoor / outdoor living, a level floor plan with a flat driveway, quick and easy access to Cruz Bay, and complete privacy. We were delighted to find Coconuts in the summer of 2010, which fulfilled all of our expectations and more. With the renovations and expansion that we embarked upon, Coconuts has gotten even better. We invite you to join our many repeat guests in discovering this tropical gem.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:

Its benefits include: - Incredible, panoramic ocean views - Flat, very private hilltop location - Magnificent, year-round sunsets - Solar heated pool with LED color lighting - Seven person spa with panoramic views - Indoor / Outdoor Caribbean living - Billiard porch with granite outdoor kitchen
