Mooncottage

Calabash Boom, Coral Bay - 1 bedroom villa

Utterly private and so romantic, Mooncottage will delight couples seeking a lovers' hideaway and a secluded spot for vacationing. Tucked within lush gardens and set high on a green hill reached via a winding island road, Mooncottage commands one of the best views on St. John - a sweeping 180-degree blue and green panorama of Coral Bay, Tortola, Norman Island and Virgin Gorda. A stone staircase ushers you into the soothing zen magic of Mooncottage: two pavilions crafted in native stonework bordered by a graveled garden courtyard set with a bubbling koi pond, and connected by a heated pool, with an adjacent covered verandah overlooking the endless Caribbean horizon.

The Main House is tastefully done with upholstered sofas and chairs and a comfortable articulated chaise lounge which folds flat for sleeping, and is accented with teak and other exotic hardwoods, sharing space with the colorful gourmet kitchen and a full bath with a moon window. The restful aura of this pavilion is completed by the shaded porch just outside, which beckons relaxation. Adjacent is the master bedroom pavilion with an outside shower, queen bed and full bath.

The architecture, Feng Shui, eclectic furnishings and this villa's very serene and spiritual ambience are simplicity itself, but exceptional in so many ways. Superbly equipped, Mooncottage offers many excellent amenities, including satellite internet access for your laptop and complimentary welcome gifts for all guests. Set on a half acre of natural Caribbean beauty, Mooncottage is exactly the right size, totally private, fully screened and graced with lovely gardens, banana, papaya, mampoo and flowering Chapeau Napoleon trees.

Its high elevation and constant island tradewinds assure cool comfort, and it offers tranquility and closeness to nature, with turtle doves cooing, surf whispering below and night skies offering you the moon and a million stars. A short drive down the hill to Coral Bay puts you within minutes of bars, restaurants and beaches - but you may decide to stay at Mooncottage and just enjoy the peace, the view and each other. Unique and exceptional.
