The Greenhouse Villa is a 3-story property, built into the hillside. The main entrance level features an open floor plan, with a kitchen, dining bar, living room, and glass doors which separate the outdoor screened living area and dining area. An interior staircase connects the main level with the master bedroom, which is directly below. The master bedroom has it's own screened-in living area, with en-suite bath, walk in closet, King bed.

An exterior staircase connects the lower bedroom to the rest of the house. The second bedroom can either be set up as one King, or two Twin beds, depending on your preference. Each level offers the same fantastic view, and both bedrooms have absolute privacy as well as air-conditioning.

There is WiFi throughout the house for guests who wish to stay connected. There is also a TV in each bedroom, as well as the living room, and the house has Dish Satellite so you can keep up with your favorite shows. The audio system is powered by SONOS and allows users to operate the audio with their very own smart phone. Simply download the application and the controls are yours. You will instantly have access to every artist and album ever recorded at any time all at your finger tips! So turn up the music and enjoy.

Where as there are many lovely villas and beautiful views on Saint John, the location, design, and amenities of The Greenhouse Villa make it quite unique. The spectacular mountaintop setting and views are considered one of the finest in the Caribbean. The breathtaking views can be enjoyed from every room, so you may never want to leave the house! The Greenhouse Villa has close proximity to North Shore beaches, and yet is only 20 minutes to the Cruz Bay ferry dock.

PLEASE NOTE: The Greenhouse is a non-smoking villa, both inside and out.

A security deposit of $500 is requested prior to check in, which is mailed back upon departure assuming there is no damage to the property. There are no other fees.

Parents, please note that this property is not suitable for children under the age of 8 due to the layout of the house. Bedrooms are located on separate levels, accessed by both interior and exterior stairs, and the villa is not child-proofed.

Note: As of April 2016, there is a new home being developed adjacent to the Western side of the The Greenhouse property border. The Greenhouse sits on half an acre of land, and this does not impact the view in any way. This development has not been a disturbance for any of our guests, and we provide this information as a courtesy.

About Alesia George

Ellen has been visiting St. John since the late 60's, when she first fell in love with the island. A teacher and avid scuba-diver, she would island hop in the Caribbean every summer, spending the majority of her time on her favorite island, St. John. She began bringing her daughter, Alesia, along when she was 7 years old, and they would camp out at Cinnamon Bay or Maho Bay every year. They have always wanted to own a home on St. John, and in 2014 that dream finally came true! Ellen and Alesia are glad to share The Greenhouse Villa for all visitors who would like to experience the natural beauty of the island.

Alesia George purchased this villa in 2014

What makes this villa unique

The Greenhouse Villa is such a unique property, incorporating all of the best elements of the island into the home. The view, the breeze, the hummingbirds surrounding each fruit tree.... it's absolutely magical.

Cacoon of Happiness

  • 5 of 5

Walking into Greenhouse Villa is like walking into a bubble of eco-happiness. From the moment you set foot on the property, you are transported to a place of serenity and a sense of calmness washes over you. You are truly on vacation now!

The living space is generous and the kitchen, perfectly equipped. One of my favorite features of the property are the enormous shutter "windows" that allow the perfect amount of breeze into the open spaces. The patio off of the living and dining room on the top floor my favorite spot, especially in the evenings. It's a great place to enjoy a night cap while watching the moon glitter over the waters of Coral Bay.

A beautifully-finished wood staircase takes you down one level to the first bedroom. There is a large patio area lined with herb plants to use for your meals (local basil and thyme, lemon grass, cranberry hibiscus and mint). Talk about fresh! The plants are perfectly positioned to receive any rain water, making it so eco-friendly. If you enjoy papaya fruit, there is enough available for your entire stay!

The outdoor shower was a dream. Outside and down a couple steps is another King bedroom, which makes Greenhouse the perfect hideaway for two couples.

I cannot begin to describe what happened when I sat on the bed in preparation for sleep. I melted into the most wonderful pillowtop mattress I have ever laid on and only the best, high-quality sheets and pillowcases were provided at Greenhouse. Also worth mentioning is the silent A/C unit in the bedrooms, which added to a good night's rest! The Internet was accessible all over the property and what I probably love the most is the fact that everything is screened-in, allowing for a generous breeze, sensational views, and best of all, no critters!

No need to worry about locking doors, or knowing where or with whom to leave keys at departure because the entrances are electronic. I cannot tell you how convenient this is!

Greenhouse Villa is minutes from Coral Bay and the best beaches on the island. Perfect location, perfect accommodation.

The owner was so welcoming and always available to answer any questions that may have arose. Greenhouse Villa is definitely a St. John gem!

Wow. I have no more breath for which to speak! My family was blessed to spend a week at the villa. Organic and earthy with all the comforts of home. Thank you for sharing this beautiful house with us. We will return soon.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and parents stayed at this villa for 7 days in April. We highly recommend this villa. You will not regret it! The photos do not do it justice. It is a beautiful new villa with a breath-taking view you can see from both bedrooms and living area. The bedrooms were on separate floors, which gave us privacy we enjoyed, but we can also stay connected in the dining/living area on the first floor. My parents left early so we stayed at another villa for a few days, one that had very good reviews on tripadvisor, and it truly paled in comparison!

Here are some things we loved about the property: 1) The amazing view! 2) Access to the fresh, organic fruits on the property. We ate papaya every day and they were sweet and delicious 3) Cleanliness and modern decor. You can really feel at home here. 4) Quality kitchen supplies and furniture. Beds were very comfy. 5) A/C in the bedrooms. This really helped me sleep better because it is so humid on St. John! 6) The location provided a constant cool breeze. A/C was only needed for us during bedtime because it is what we're used to. 7) The location was great! We were within a 10 minute drive to all the best beaches, including Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho, Francis, and Salt Pond (our favorite snorkeling spot). We also loved eating at Shipwreck Landing and the Tourist Trap. It is about a 20 minute drive into town.

Thank you for sharing your lovely villa with us!! We enjoyed every moment here!!

A week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Greenhouse Villa is amazing, we went with another couple and it could not have been more perfect. Absolutely beautiful and very well maintained with a million dollar view. The owner is fantastic and very helpful. I never had to wait for my questions to be answered. I would recommend the Greenhouse Villa to anyone who wants a quiet, peaceful, perfect vacation. I am defiantly going back.

Paradise! Comfort and Beauty at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every aspect of this charming villa: design, location, spaciousness, gorgeous view, natural beauty inside and out! We stayed with another couple and both had perfectly private bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the comfortable common areas with room to dine, do yoga, relax, and dance! Outside we grilled, hung in the hammock, and did a little necessary email work surrounded by the awesome ocean view, gorgeous plants, trees, birds, and NO bugs.

The Greenhouse Villa has fun restaurants to choose from in nearby Coral Bay, as well as a completely stocked modern kitchen. The villa is new, spotless, and safe. It's close to more beautiful beaches than we had time to discover. Beach chairs, floats, and towels are all provided. We had a young sea turtle swimming and eating sea grass around us at Salt Bay. And we had a fine hike - trailhead in the neighborhood.

The owner provided great customer service before and during our visit. We plan to come back to this property next year (!) and highly recommend it; a couple or two couples, a family with children, active and too-tired-to-move folks will be all pleased.

Great location, unique villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at The Greenhouse and found it to be in an excellent location with fast access to the west side beaches that we like. The villa is brand new, and the large screened in side of the house makes you feel like you are living outside, but without the bugs. The location is private, with a nice view and the sounds of tree frogs to put you to sleep at night. It's about a 10 minute drive to the restaurants in Coral Bay.

Map

Car: necessary

Escape from it all to The Greenhouse Villa on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Built into one of the many emerald volcanic hills that spill into azure Coral Bay, The Greenhouse Villa surrounds you with breathtaking beauty within and without. The Greenhouse's offers numerous perches from which to spy upon pleasure boats in the harbor or watch the sun rise over the Caribbean Sea. For more information please visit TheGreenhouseVilla (dot com)

The villa's architecture evokes laid-back luxury with bamboo and mahogany throughout, and upscale furnishings. The Greenhouse feels like an oasis unto itself, yet restaurants and shops, Virgin Islands National Park and exquisite beaches are all close by.
