Holiday Rental House
Perched high above the Carolina Valley in the heart of the Bordeaux Mt. forest is a charming and romantic cottage overlooking the turquoise Caribbean waters of the Sir Francis Drake channel. Created for your enjoyment, your vacation for two, Sea Cottage is a private paradise. Just a 10 minute drive to the world famous North Shore beaches and less than 15 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Coral Bay or the ferry dock at Cruz Bay, the cottage can be reached by way of the paved and level Bordeaux Mt. Road which winds through the lush and fragrant bay rum forest. For those who wish to enjoy St. John on foot, the Bordeaux Mt. trailhead in the Virgin Island National Park is only a short hike away leading to beautiful Lameshur Bay on the south side of the island as well as other trails ...Perched high above the Carolina Valley in the heart of the Bordeaux Mt. forest is a charming and romantic cottage overlooking the turquoise Caribbean waters of the Sir Francis Drake channel.

Sea Cottage is a stand alone studio – an open floor plan with airy vaulted ceilings, a spacious wrap around covered deck, a queen bed, a garden shower, a fully equipped kitchen, DVD player and sound dock. Decorated with beautiful pieces made by local artists, this private getaway is accessed by means of a comfortable descent through a tropical garden. It is amply cooled by ceiling fans and tradewind breezes so there is never any need for air conditioning. Whether lounging in the hammock or admiring a moonrise or sunrise over the British Virgin Islands, you will be surrounded by the sounds of the forest and mesmerized by an unforgettable view. See you at the ferry dock!More

About the neighbourhood
Sea Cottage sits just two hundred feet below Bordeaux Mt. peak, the highest point on St. John. It is a stand alone cottage cooled by the tradewinds and surrounded by the Bordeaux Mt. forest. The cottage faces east overlooking the Drake Channel and the British Virgin Islands. It is secluded and very private but easily accessed via the paved and relatively flat Bordeaux Mt. Road.
How to get there
Your flight will come into St. Thomas. You can rent a car on St. Thomas and come to St. John on the car barge (30 minutes) or take a shuttle taxi to Red Hook to catch a passenger ferry to St. John (15 minutes). We will meet you at the ferry dock, guide you to your car rental if renting on St. John, to some light grocery shopping and then you can follow us out to the cottage where we will show you around and point you to our favorite spots on island.
