If you want to relax next to your own private swimming pool adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park and surrounded by a private tropical garden, then this is the place for you. You will feel entirely away from it all, despite the fact that the galleries, restaurants, bars, music, and other conveniences of Cruz Bay are only one mile away. Caribbean views from every room in the house will mesmerize you as the ridge-top breezes cool you after a day at the beach.
Our house has two bedroom suites on opposite sides of a great room. Each has a king-sized bed and its own en suite bathroom, individually zoned air-conditioning, and private access to a porch overlooking the Caribbean and St. Croix in the distance.
The villa sits one mile outside Cruz Bay high up on the ridge in the saddle between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill, adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park.
Forty yards from our patio, through National Park land, is Caneel Hill Trail, which drops down to secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore in less than 45 minutes, and drops down to the town of Cruz Bay with a half-hour hike in the other direction. A 1/4-mile hike brings you to the Caneel Hill Observation Platform, where you can see a 360-degree view of both the Caribbean and Atlantic as well as the entire Western Half of St. John.
We are entirely committed to protecting the Island's fragile environment. We want to be sure that all products and practices encountered at the cottage are as earth-friendly as possible. We are supporters of the nonprofit Friends of the Virgin Island National Park and urge you to visit their web site. Please join us as we attempt to lead the way toward a more sustainable tourism economy on St. John.
