If you are interested in receiving a quote for the Upper or Lower Levels separately, please inquire through one of our other listings. Relax in the comfort and privacy of Stonegarden Cottage, while enjoying the gorgeous view of Coral Bay Harbor and the British Virgin Islands beyond. Explore the surrounding gardens, ponds, and on-site nature trails through lush tropical forest. Venture to the national park trailhead just up the mountain. With pristine beaches nearby, the unsurpassed Virgin Islands National Park within view, and great hiking trails only minutes away, this charming mountainside home, with its outstanding view and artistic stonework, is centrally located in Coral Bay, on the quiet side of the island. For more information and photos, please visit our website and Facebook page Here is one of the glowing comments we get from our guests: Jo G. 6/1/18 ~ “It was perfect!” 'This was our 2nd visit to your beautiful cottage. It was fun sharing the top deck space with our friends. We love the view from the cottage on both levels. The cottage was very clean and accommodating. Your manager was great to communicate with! Internet worked the majority of the time, which was a bonus since we didn’t expect it at all since hurricane. Thanks again for everything! I don’t know of anything you could’ve offered to better our stay because it was perfect!' The Upper and Lower Levels of the cottage can be rented together or separately. Upper Level: The fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen opens out onto the deck where you will dine or just relax while gazing at one of the most beautiful views in all the Caribbean, with an ever-changing light show of turquoise water and sun-drenched islands. Note: The Upper Level is cooled by our strong trade-winds and ceiling fans in every room - there is no air-conditioning in the Upper Level of the cottage. The living room offers sleeping accommodations for two adults or children on the comfortable queen-size sofa-bed. The master bedroom with queen-size, four poster bed and private, fully tiled bath has an expansive island view. The enclosed Caribbean 'garden shower' blends traditional stonework with the tropical environment. There is a 2nd bedroom (called the 'bunk room') with bunk bed and ample closet space. It has its own tiled bathroom - the open shower ceiling lets in the Caribbean sun and balmy breezes. Walkways from the front door connect into the stone paths and trails of Guavaberry Woods. Lower Level: For the couple looking for a combination of affordability and comfort, the Lower Level is a perfect choice. Private and quiet, this charming apartment has tasteful decor, art by Caribbean artists, stained-glass windows and beautiful views to the British Virgins. Enjoy the comfortable amenities of air-conditioning, a 4-poster queen-size bed, newly built, fully tiled private bath with shower, a fully equipped kitchenette (toaster-oven, microwave, two-burner stove-top, small fridge, double sink), dining table and chairs, and comfortable reading chair and lamp. You'll especially enjoy the private dining deck with its bistro table and chairs, private garden with grill, lovely harbor view and direct access to the trails of Guavaberry Woods. The Lower Level has its own separate entrance, driveway and parking space. The unit was built underneath the deck of the main house and with solid cypress ceiling panels to ensure you peace and quiet. A perfect getaway for the couple looking for affordable comfort and privacy. Onsite Nature Trails: The best of St. John's natural beauty and astonishing biodiversity lies on-site at your doorstep. An archway of hanging tropical flowers greets you as you enter and walk down a short stone stairway to the front door. The large (2/3 acre) hillside property is an ecological wonderland that invites wandering -- beautiful hand-crafted stone paths and gravel trails on several different levels lead you through Guavaberry Woods. Cool Retreat: Steady trade-winds, an easterly view and the surrounding forest make Stonegarden Cottage a comfortable tropical getaway year-round -- cool, quiet and peaceful. After a day on blazing white sand beaches or out on the glittering sea, it is delightful to return up the mountain to your forest retreat, savor a frozen drink while enjoying the view while hearing the breeze rustle the treetops. See why our guests return year after year to stay at one of St. John's most popular rentals!More

About the neighbourhood
Stonegarden Cottage is nestled in the tropical forest on St. John's tallest mountain, Bordeaux, at about 500 ft. above sea level. The cottage is on Route 108W. The quiet village of Coral Bay is only a 2 minute drive away, and there you will find nightlife, great restaurants and shopping. National Park land surrounds the property, and there is a trailhead only a half hours walk away from the cottage which takes you to Lamishur Beach. The beautiful beaches of the North Shore are only a 10 minute drive from the cottage.
Getting around
Four-wheel drive is highly recommended, and required for guests staying in the Lower Level, due to the need for a high wheel base.
