To conserve on water, Satinwood uses Clivus Multrum composting toilets/ These are massive, commercial grade composters that do not require and guest support or service. The units have power vents and are non-obtrusive. These are not the silly little bucket composters seen on Youtube.More

High near the end of paved mountain road, Satinwood is a gem! It is in the Coral Bay end of St John (where the vibe is quieter and casual). We have stayed at a great many villas all over St John, and there is no...More

About the neighbourhood
Satinwood is on a large, private lot. The neighbors are not too close and the whole area is very private. The location and view are what brings back our regular, repeat guests. The view is something special and the cool breezes, along with the carefully considered design of the house, keep the house comfortable year-round. All the roads to Satinwood are paved and the driveway is paved. A four-wheel drive is nice for exploring the island, but not necessary for Satinwood.
Getting around
A car rental is required. For some areas of the island, if you want to explore, a four wheel drive vehicle is recommended. To get to and from Satinwood, as well as the best beaches and restaurants, four wheel drive is NOT needed. We usually recommend renting a car on St. John. This does mean that you have catch a taxi at the airport to get to the ferry at Redhook, but the people ferry does run l;ater than the car ferry, the shared taxi drivers get you across crowded St. Thomas, with left hand roads and odd intersections, and sometime provide a good introduction ot the islands' culture. Renting a car on St. John does not allow St. Thomas shopping trips.
