Holiday Rental House
Caneel Trailside Cottage 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 the backyard, through National Park land, is Caneel Hill Trail, which drops down to the secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore (Honeymoon Beach, Caneel Bay and Solomon Bay) 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.

From Caneel Trailside Cottage’s doorstep you can literally hike through the forest to get everywhere you will need to be on the western half of St. John.A lush garden surrounds the private brick patio that encloses a swimming pool with teak poolside chaises and a barbecue area. A wide shaded veranda for outdoor dining and relaxing adds great space to enjoy the breeze and idle away from it all. The veranda looks out over the southwest end of St John and offers expansive views of the Caribbean all the way to St. Croix. The house was built in 2005 and everything is high quality, state of the art, and in perfect condition.Check out the owner’s website as well: http://www.*******************/ Additional amenities include: suitable for children.More

Caneel Trailside is great villa for a small family or two couples. Nice and quiet which is harder to achieve these days with so many trees lost in Irma. Everything you need is in the villa in a great layout. Good internet and phone coverage....More

We really enjoyed this house. We usually stay in town in a condo. This was VERY private and relaxing. The courtyard area was wonderful and the view from the porch was outstanding. The kitchen was very well stocked. We ended up cooking more than usual...More

We stayed in this villa in August 2013 and it was a very fun trip. I highly recommend St. John as a destination and staying in a villa is definitely the way to go if you don't want to stay at the Westin or Caneel,...More
