About the Property
Surounded by National Park, 1bedroom, 1 bath well equipped complete home
The cottage comes with all amenities including:
Dish soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, all kitchen supplies, bath & beach towels, beach chairs, swim fins (masks not provided), outdoor gas grill, full size kitchen and drinking water is separately filtered at the kitchen sink. In addition to the great breezes, there are ceiling fans in every room with AC in the bedroom only.
Fiddlewood has a queen size bed, plus a pull out couch in the living room. Affordable for those who loved camping at Maho Bay, Cinnamon Bay, or Concordia but want to upgrade with more privacy, comfort and easy access. Off road parking right to the front door. Dining on both the front and back decks with fresh herbs growing in the front deck garden.
There is a direct line to the cellphone tower with great reception provided your carrier works here. AT&T works GREAT but Sprint does not and Verizon, is spotty. Wireless Internet service is provided plus satellite TV is available in both the living room and bedroom.
Star gazing at night is a premium since there are no homes to look at or light pollution near by. The sunrises and sunsets are magnificent and the view down the pond to the sea from the back deck is reminiscent of the Hudson Valley Painters landscape settings. The light is especially wonderful for plein air artists. The cottage is full of original paintings and sculptures both inside and out.
Affordable, quiet, peaceful, comfortable, unpretentious living in the Caribbean is what we offer to the traveler who wants to get away far, far from the maddening crowds.

Fiddlewood Cottage is for those seeking peace and quiet. For nature lovers and seekers of solitude. Waking distance to all levels of hiking trails in the National Park. A five minute drive to Estate Concordia for restaurant and yoga activities.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are 40 + year full time residents of St. John and Fiddlewood Cottage will become our retirement home when we can no longer negotiate our 50 steps to our current home in East End. We are both artists and built our East End home plus did all of the remodeling at the cottage ourselves with aesthetics and comfort as our focus. Mary managed 10 successful vacation villas starting in 1986 and sold it in 1996. Having done the vacation rental dance for 10 years we are "old school" and believe those who visit are truly our guests and not just renters. We know what it takes to have our guests feel welcomed, comfortable and secure knowing we are here 24/7 to insure a great stay.
Why the Owner Chose Estate Mandal, Saint John, USVI:
We purchased this property because it is flat land, has established gardens, totally private, walking distance to GREAT snorkeling beaches and is also waterfront. Completely different environment from our beach front, windward side property. The pond below the cottage is full of every variety of bird here in the Virgin Islands. We also love to garden and the property's topography with native vegetation is very inspiring. The contrasting environments is what we LOVE about St. John the most!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We saw Fiddlewood Cottage at 4:30 and bought it at 5:00 in July 2013. We are gardeners and the topography is perfect for our old age. Also, short, easy walking distances to beaches with GREAT swimming and snorkeling was another plus we were thrilled to find. The previous owners put in lovely gardens and left ample shade trees in all the right locations. The wide open pond and sea views of the National Park insured we would never be looking at another house or resort. There are great breezes and the feeling of being surrounded by a sanctuary full of wildlife is heavenly! The short drive to Concordia Restaurant, Coral Bay and grocery stores is also a HUGE plus.
