Honeymoon Cottage: A Private, Secluded Cottage For Two

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom (1 Queen And 1 Full-size Pullout Sofa), 1 Bath (sleeps 2-4)


The Honeymoon Cottage lies nestled deep in the Virgin Island National Park on the North Shore of St. John at Francis Bay. The villa overlooks Mary Creek and Leinster Bay with views of Tortola in the distance. It offers extreme privacy combined with the peacefulness of undisturbed natural surroundings and is perfect not only for newlyweds, but for those couples who wish to renew their vows year after year or simply desire complete solitude and tranquility.  The “Cottage” is located 25 minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, 12 minutes from Coral Bay, and is only a 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk to the beautiful sands of quiet Francis Bay Beach with its great swimming, snorkeling, and sunning.  Cinnamon Bay Campground is a 7 minute drive. This Virgin Islands National Park camping area offers a nice gazebo restaurant for dining along with a convenience store and watersport equipment rentals including snorkeling gear, kayaks, and sailboards.

The Interior

The Cottage offers a cute and cozy open 600 square foot air-conditioned floor plan which includes a sleeping area with a queen sized 4-poster bed and a small living area with full-size pullout sofa, desk, and 32 inch LCD TV with DVD player. There is a well-equipped kitchen, which includes a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and electric range. A coffee maker, blender, and toaster are also supplied along with a washer and dryer. A full bathroom with dual vessel sinks and an open but private, sensuous outdoor shower adjoins the sleeping area.

WiFi Internet is provided via DSL connection with the Island’s telephone company. Guests on St. John and at the Cottage may also wish to carry mobile cellular Internet capability. Examples are MiFi via AT&T or Virgin Mobile.

Local phone service is available at the Cottage. Cell phone users on the Island find AT&T the most efficient company with the best coverage. If cell phone connection is important to you both at the house and in other areas of the island and AT&T is not your normal carrier, you may wish to consider a pay-as- you-go AT&T phone for your vacation. Cell coverage at the Cottage is primarily provided by towers in Tortola, which could potentially entail roaming charges. Please familiarize yourself with your personal cellular plan before traveling to anywhere in the Caribbean.

Cable TV is not available in St. John’s Francis Bay area. Periodic power outages for minutes to several hours are not uncommon on St. John. If no storm or extraordinary circumstance is present, service is generally restored within the hour.


A screened-in porch off the kitchen offers dining for 4 and opens to a rear deck with fantastic views of Mary Creek, Leinster Bay, and Tortola. Steps from the porch lead up to what sets this property aside -- a secluded, completely private, outdoor gazebo with its own hot tub, bed, and dining table for 2.  Yes, a true honeymoon experience.

In Conclusion

Whether you are newlyweds, celebrating your 25th anniversary, or just two people looking for a fantastic, healthy, nature-packed vacation of hiking, snorkeling, swimming, great restaurants, and utter relaxation, The Honeymoon Cottage is just the destination. Young couples with small kids also

love it. Experience the St. John Adventure. Welcome to the Island!

Why Beth Linden chose USVI/St. John

Francis Bay is not only the last in the string of famous beautiful northern beaches on St. John as one drives east along the North Road, but it is also the most secluded of the bunch. This creates a serene privacy amongst an abundance of nature. We love it.

What makes this cottage unique

For couples that wish to be alone in lush natural surroundings, the Honeymoon Cottage can’t be beat. Select an inside queen size bed with air-conditioning or a private gazebo in the woods with hot tub, bed, and a table for 2. For lovers, the Cottage has both.

Lovely island getaway complete with stunning ocean views, well-appointed kitchen, roomy deck and screened porch! Short walk to a quiet beach with good snorkeling, easy drive to many other favorite spots for snorkeling and hiking. Would definitely return here!

charming, romantic cottage in enchanting location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at HC for our Anniversary and it was everything an anniversary hideaway should be. This was our 3rd trip to St John so we were familiar with the location, which is somewhat off the beaten track yet only 15 minutes to Cruz Bay and about the same to Coral Bay but closet to some of the best snorkeling and hiking spots on st john.
