Description from owner

Miraculously, Stonegarden Cottage came through hurricanes Irma and Maria undamaged, and power has been restored to the cottage. The interior on the cottage is virtually the same as before the storms. We have repaired, restored or replaced mostly all exterior features, including solar panels, railings, fences, and our beautiful gardens and nature trails. We have a new Tesla Powerwall back-up battery for our solar panels which means there will be no noisy generator needed if the power goes out.

Note: The cottage consists of upper and lower levels which can be rented together or separately, sleeping two to eight guests. This listing is for the Lower Level. If you are interested in more space, please see our other listing on this website for more info and photos of the Upper Level and Whole House.

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.

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.

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.

The Upper and Lower Levels of the cottage can be rented together or separately.

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. Upgraded Nov. 2016 with all new windows & screens, interior decor and more!

Enjoy the comfortable amenities of air-conditioning, 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 and direct access to the trails of Guavaberry Woods. Stairs down from the deck lead to a private garden with a hammock and grill for your use. There are sitting areas around the property where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful and cool woods, tropical fruit trees and flowering plants. 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. A trellised 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 the lush hardwood foliage of Guavaberry Woods, where picturesque and unique ponds, a meditation garden, bridge and benches, plus gardens of orchids, frangipani, hibiscus, bouganvilla, citrus and tropical fruit trees delight the eye.

Cool Retreat: Steady tradewinds, an easterly view and the lush 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 or gaze into a lily pond while hearing the breeze rustle the treetops.
