SEAclusion St. John
About SEAclusion St. John
As a couple and with our friends & family, we have visited St. John for a few years now, the first time during a cruise ship stop which docked over on St. Thomas. By jumping on a cab and taking the Red Hook ferry, it was an easy escape from the hustle and bustle of St. Thomas to the true island paradise of St. John! We immediately fell in love with the natural beauty of the island and the people there! St. John was even more precious to us, as we were born and raised in the Midwest without the luxury of year-round warm temperatures, beautiful Caribbean beaches, and the care-free lifestyle of island living. So it wasn't too hard to resist the temptation of buying our own piece of island paradise. We have a large family (3 kids currently in college) and full-time commitments (jobs) back in the States, so we can not enjoy the island as much as we'd like to right now... that is why we wish to share our piece of paradise with you and hope that you, too, will come to love the island as much as we do.
SEAclusion St. John purchased this Villa in 2013
Why SEAclusion St. John chose Estate Maho Bay
We chose SEAclusion - St. John primarily for its location. The central island location provides quick access to the North Shore beaches, numerous hiking trails, and the great restaurants in both Coral & Cruz Bay. During our first few visits to St. John we stayed near Cruz Bay thinking we would be closer to all the island's best attractions. However, that theory quickly vanished when we stayed at SEAclusion and discovered its location was closer to most of the beautiful North Shore beaches than our previously rentals had been in Cruz Bay. Maho Bay is less than 2 miles or 5 minute drive away from the villa; and the beaches of Cinnamon, Trunk, & Hawksnest are just a few minutes beyond to the west on Route 20. In addition, some of the best snorkeling sites and scenic hiking trails on the island are found in the central to east side of St. John. The close proximity to the charming & unique restaurants in Coral Bay, complement the fine restaurants in Cruz Bay and provide a greater selection when going out for a night on the town! Lastly, but perhaps most important - we chose this property with for its amazing Sunrise to Sunset ocean views! Situated high up on Ajax Peak the property boosts prime views over Coral Bay, the East End & beyond to the BVIs in the southeast; and then to the northwest for views of Maho, Cinnamon, the outer cays and beyond to St. Thomas for gorgeous sunsets. These views can be seen from inside the villa to outside the villa on its wrap around decks & also from the roof-top terrace.

...and tranquility of being in paradise!
We stayed at Seaclusion on St. John for our Honeymoon. Everything about our experience was fantastic. The Seaclusion was beautiful and in fantastic shape. There are so many places to sit and take in amazing views both inside and outside the home. The crows nest on the roof was our favorite! We sat up their most nights watching amazing sun sets.
The owners and management company were great to work with! They were vey helpful in guiding us as we planned our trip.
We highly recommend staying at Seaclusion and plan to come back soon!
Views Views Views .... AMAZING
Views Views Views .... only arguments here are deciding which view is the best! Ultimate rest and relaxation! My wife and I spent our honeymoon here for 11 days and wouldn’t imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Although located a 1000ft up, you are only 10 minutes from Coral Bay Restaurants (Rhumb Lines our favorite), 20 minutes from Cruz Bay (Extra Virgin our favorite restaurant). Closest beach Maho which happened to be one of our favorites is 7 minutes from house. Highly recommend and Michele couldn’t be easier to deal with, answering any questions we may have had. Thankful and blessed to have been able to stay in this beautiful home!

Truly an amazing trip to St John, and couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else on the Island other then SeaClusion. There are truly no words to describe the views. The only thing you fight about here is which view is best, and what beach to go to.
Conveniently located 20 minutes from Cruz Bay and 10 minutes from Coral Bay. Easy access to all over the island. Some of our favorite beaches: Maho (7mins from house), Hawksnest and Frances. Coral Bay favorite restaurant Rhumb Lines, and Cruz Bay Extra Virgin. Favorite hike: Rams Head.
Wonderful House and Location
This is probably our 7th or 8th stay at this house over the past decade. We had been renting it from the original owner who built the house, and we were thrilled when the new owners continued renting out this paradise on the island. The house is well appointed, the views are truly incredible (you can see sunrise and sunset), and the owners and caretakers are very responsive.
Now This is a Beautiful Place to Stay.....
Debbie and I along with friends of ours from the Twin Cities stayed at SEAclusion the last week of January, 2019. Our timing was perfect as a Polar Vortex brought teeth chattering sub-zero cold and snow to the Great Lakes region while we were all enjoying the panoramic views from the wrap-around decks of the villa.
Where does one begin to describe all the great aspects of SEAclusion? The location is perfect for those who enjoy the quiet side of St John high above Coral Bay on Ajax Peak. Watching the sun rise over the East End and set over St. Thomas always made us pause and enjoy the natural beauty of the setting. The quality of the villa's construction was fabulous with attention to detail everywhere one looked. The furnishings were all well thought out to make every room in the villa a place to relax and enjoy. And of course, the state-side property owners and on-site property management were all extraordinary from the beginning of our trip planning until the very end of our stay. Excellent communications throughout which made our stay at SEAclusion so enjoyable.
Heaven On Earth!
My husband and I, along with several different family members, have been vacationing on St. John since we discovered this beautiful island over 20 years ago. In all of our years here, we have never stayed in the same villa twice.....that is, until now, and our wonderful SEAclusion experience! Between the time we made our reservation and our arrival date, STJ was hit with two devastating storms. Over the course of the storm and for the months that followed, owner Michele kept us informed of the damage and progress in 'putting the island back together again'. Thankfully, their villa, built like a fortress, made it through the storm with only minor damage to the decking and foliage.....we fully understood how and why it made it through two Category 5 storms once we arrived.....it is as solid as could be! This communication was vital as our five week vacation the following summer was hanging in the balance. I can't say enough good about Michele through this uncertain time. Happily, we arrived on STJ as planned and spent five glorious weeks in a fabulous villa.....overlooking Coral Bay and Maho/Frances Bays with views all the way to St. Thomas.....does it get any better than this? Michele and Dave have done an incredible job designing a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean with all the modern comforts and amenities. We entertained two sets of family members during our stay.....each of us having our own 'floors' and 'decks', so we were able to enjoy some solitude every day before and after we enjoyed the modern kitchen together and the beaches in between. Maho and Frances, our two favorites, were an easy 5 minutes away. We were able to view the parking lot at Maho from SEAclusion, so we always knew when to leave to be ensured of convenient parking there. While there is no doubt that the underwater world of St. John suffered from the hurricanes, we were delighted to find representation of all of the corals, fish and sea life in various stages of rebuilding. We saw more turtles than we have ever seen at Maho......and were delighted by so many young turtles......you didn't even have to make an effort to find them. Simply float.....within minutes, they are below you! Heaven on Earth! The location turned out to be perfect.....we loved the breezy coolness.....kept us cool and the flying pests away. Very comfy beds. Caretakers Wayne & Roseanne are fabulous.....very responsive and eager to please. It was perfect! We can't wait to return
