New Rental! Fish Bay Retreat 3 bedroom / 3 bath private home

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom / 3 bath family home adjacent to the National Park


The view from Fish Bay Retreat stretches out to French Cap, an island 8 miles from St John and about 5 miles from St Thomas. It is a protected wilderness island for sea birds. The immediate view is of Fish Bay, Ditleff Point, and the Caribbean Sea beyond. Fish Bay Retreat borders on the Virgin Islands National Park lands but lacks the steep-steep roads that normally need to be traversed.

Our home is contemporary but traditional post and beam structure built from tropical hard woods. The hip roofs give an open feeling to the house. You’re 15-20 minutes from Cruz Bay, the main town on St John, but blessed with a quiet neighborhood and great night time sounds; frogs and lizards serenade you to sleep. Wake up to birds chirping. You can relax, enjoy the sun and the spa, or hike up one of our nearby ravines to the old Sieben and Mollandahl Plantations not normally accessible by visitors. The house is just over the hill from Reef Bay beach where you can walk the beach over to the Reef Bay Ruins or just relax on the white sand beach.

Fish Bay Retreat is a 3 bedroom/3 bath home offering indoor/outdoor/screened living for dining and relaxing in the sun. The tradewinds are constant and the sun doesn’t beat down on the house immediately in the morning. Enjoy the spa day and night. Star gazing is amazing. A full library of natural history books and the famous St. John Magazine are available.

Our home is your retreat. Come and enjoy your visit to St John, US Virgin Islands.

1-4 person rates are available under Notes on the rate page. Posted rate is 5-6 person rate.

My deepest regret was that I had booked my self for only 4 nights. After dealing with the horrendous traffic in Portland, OR and the long flight, our successful. escape to Pardise was topped by our stay at the Fish Bay Retreat! As soon as I entered the living room, stress just oozed out of me and I felt my humanity return.

I can't thank the owners enough for allowing me to stay in their home, and I will defintely be back next year

What a memorable expirence! Forget all your worries here,for a relaxing and peaceful time this place is for you.Nestled in the National Park Reserve adds to your quiteness and peacefulness.No need for noisy AC,due to constant tropical breezes,along with ceiling fans through out the house.Has all the amenities you need,even a added bonus a hot tub to relax in day or night.A separate suite down stairs with mini kitchen was a nice addition.Only a short ride 10 to 15 mins to town and beautiful beaches. Had a unforgettable time,we will be back.
