Holiday Rental House
Adorable caribbean cottage amongst the trees. Enjoy the cooling trade winds and tropical view of St John high atop Bordeaux Mountain. A romantic get away or adventurous retreat, no matter your goal....Tropical Tree House will not disappoint! The roads on St John are steep and curvy so you will need to rent a Jeep... This private cottage is down 68 steps in the middle of lush green trees with a view of St. John, Drake's Channel and Tortola. The main level includes the kitchen, living room, bathroom. The screened-in porch, dining table and chairs, a sitting area and a hammock. The comfy queen size bed is located in the loft which is accessed by a ladder. There is also a washer and dryer on the lower level. Fully equipped kitchen, filtered drinking water, ice maker, WIFI, cable TV, iPhone ...Adorable caribbean cottage amongst the trees.
