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 Mandahl (Johns Folly, St. 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.
