Stonegarden Cottage offers you a private retreat where you will enjoy your dream vacation on Saint John in the US Virgin Islands. Offering the privacy, comfort and views of a villa, this unique rental home beckons many of our loyal guests back year after year. Back-up Power: This eco-friendly solar cottage is equipped with a Tesla Powerwall back-up battery for our solar panels, which means there will be no interruptions. The island's power company has been struggling since the hurricanes, and there are frequent island-wide outages, sometimes for several hours a day (the longest outages can last several days).

Offering the privacy, comfort and views of a villa, this unique rental home beckons many of our loyal guests back year after year. Back-up Power: This eco-friendly solar cottage is equipped with a Tesla Powerwall back-up battery for our solar panels, which means there will be no interruptions. The island's power company has been struggling since the hurricanes, and there are frequent island-wide outages, sometimes for several hours a day (the longest outages can last several days). So, we installed a Tesla Powerwall back-up battery for our solar panels which means you will not even notice when the power goes out on island. Stonegarden Cottage consists of upper and lower levels, and you can book the Whole House or just the Upper Level. We're no longer renting the Lower Level separately to ensure that you and your party will have maximum privacy, with only one family/party in the cottage at any given time. However, the owners occasionally use the Lower Level when they are on-island it’s not booked, and will treat you with highest regard, and will ensure your privacy at all times. Christmas and New Year's Weeks: Whole House only, 7 night minimum stay required. This beautiful St. John vacation rental offers a gorgeous island view and on-site nature trails, close proximity to pristine National Park Beaches and restaurants and shops of Coral Bay - the peaceful side of St. John. Enjoy the water and garden view from our NEWLY INSTALLED SPA! Simply warm up after a swim, or treat yourself to a relaxing and therapeutic soak in the spa's jets. The cottage was upgraded with all new windows & screens, bathrooms, flooring, decking, interior decor, and a new Lower Level bathroom & kitchenette! We have a new whole house UV filtration system to ensure that your water is sparkling clean and drinkable. The cottage nestles within a shady, tropical forest, high up the steep slopes of St. John’s Bordeaux Mountain. At the foot of the mountain lies picturesque Coral Bay harbor; beyond unfolds a panorama of peninsulas, islands, beaches and glowing turquoise channels that run east as far as Virgin Gorda and the Anegada Passage. This is the view Islands Magazine chose as the top spot in the world to watch the sunrise of the new millennium. NOTE: This listing is for the Whole House. The Upper Level of the cottage can be rented separately (see our separate Upper Level listing). 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 sundrenched islands. Walk out the kitchen onto a dining deck with a phenomenal view of the islands and harbor below, where you will want to spend every evening gazing up at the constellations or to watching the moonrise over the VI National Park and Coral Bay Harbor. There is a full-sized dining table and 6 chairs, a chaise lounge and 2 deck chairs on the deck for your use, as well as four yoga mats to spread out for your morning yoga routine. A large living room space has a picture window looking out over the islands and harbor below, as well as a pass through to the kitchen with counter height stools. The cottage is decorated with beautiful Caribbean art and stained glass windows designed and built by the owner. The master bedroom with queen-size, four-poster bed and private, fully tiled bath has an expansive island view through a picture window. The enclosed Caribbean garden shower blends traditional stonework with the tropical environment. Off the living room, there is a 2nd bedroom (called the bunk room ) with twin sized bunk bed and ample closet space. It has its own tiled bathroom - the open shower ceiling lets in the Caribbean sun and balmy breezes. Outside amenities: Walkways from the front door lead you to our NEW HOT TUB/SPA, a spa deck for lounging. Lower Level: Private and quiet, this charming apartment is air-conditioned, has tasteful decor, art by Caribbean artists, stained-glass windows and beautiful views to the British Virgins. Enjoy the comfortable amenities of a queen-size bed, private bath with shower, a fully equipped kitchenette, dining table and chairs, and comfortable reading chair and lamp. You'll especially enjoy the private dining deck with its bistro table and chairs, lovely harbor view, a private garden with a grill, and direct access to the trails of Guavaberry Woods. The Lower Level has its own separate entrance, driveway and parking space. It's also accessible from the Upper Level deck by a side staircase. The unit was built underneath the deck of the main house and with solid cypress ceiling panels to ensure you peace and quiet. See why our guests return year after year to stay at one of St. John's most popular rentals!More
