About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Experience St. John’s natural beauty from this one bedroom home overlooking Coral Bay Harbor. This hand-crafted cottage was specially built by its owner with the protection of the environment in mind. Surrounded by trees, with gorgeous views of Coral Bay and Bordeaux Mountain, this is a perfect couples’ get-away, a beautiful home to call your own for a week or more. With a fully-equipped kitchen, king-size bed, and spacious wrap-around decks on both floors (hammock included!), Just Enough provides the ideal base for exploring the island of St. John. Located ten to fifteen minutes from both North and South Shore Beaches and trails, swimming, snorkeling, and hiking opportunities abound. A variety of restaurants, shops, and bars are less than half mile away in Coral Bay, and the bustling nightlife and shopping of downtown Cruz Bay can be reached in 25 minutes.

Just Enough sleeps up to four people, but can be rented in conjunction with New Moon (see VRBO listing 107852) for parties of up to six people. Both New Moon and Just Enough were custom built by their owner with the protection of the environment in mind. While separated by lush foliage, the houses are on the same property, connected by a short trail. This design allows for family or friends to have separate space and privacy, but the proximity to enjoy a vacation together. Each two-story house includes a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, living space and a fully equipped kitchen downstairs, and wrap-around decks on both floors from which to enjoy the views and stargazing

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: We (the owners Tim & Jane) finished building Just Enough in 2004. The lot was hand cleared in order to retain as much natural vegetation as possible. In addition to building the entire house himself, owner/cabinetmaker Tim handbuilt all of the beautiful mahogany cabinets, as well as the unique coffee table and side tables throughout the house. While we love St John (and Coral Bay in particular) we decided to go cruising in our sailboat to check out other parts of the world. Until we return, we hope you will enjoy staying at our home and exploring the island of St. John!

Why Upper Carolina, Saint John, USVI:
St. John is a wonderful island with so much to offer (including a U.S. national park and national marine sanctuary!). Being *water people* we love the snorkeling and diving all around us. Sailing in the Virgin Islands is also great - we enjoy day sails and overnight trips all over the US and British Virgin Islands from Coral Bay. And hiking in the national park is beautiful - the Johnny Horn trail is within walking distance of our house.
