An elegant retreat with lovely furnishings! - Coral Bay St. John
Welcome to Windwardside, an elegant retreat with lovely furnishings, a beautiful view and lush tropical gardens. This traditional West Indian style home consists of multiple buildings with a large central courtyard. The mainhouse consists of two buildings: the first is a detached bedroom / bathroom with a veranda that looks over the courtyard, gardens and sea; the second is the "great house". The great house is entered though a roomy screened-in porch which holds a beautifully furnished dining room and a cushioned window seating area. There is a full kitchen and living room (with sofa bed), an adjoining bath, plus an inviting covered porch overlooking the sea. Larger groups can rent Windwardside guest cottage as an additional bedroom.
The Master Bedroom and Bathroom are located in a separate building above the courtyard. It is furnished with a queen sized four poster mahogany bed made on St. John and has a small cushioned seating area. There is a full bath with a charming shower garden: totally private but open to the sky. A veranda which extends over the courtyard and looks out to the sea is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while watching the birds flit about the garden.
The brick courtyard and the covered porch are surrounded by lush tropical gardens including banana and papaya trees and a profusion of flowers. The teak dining table in the courtyard seats six and is shaded by a large market umbrella for leisurely lunches al fresco. A large hot tub also holds six and has a peaceful view of Coral Bay. For more intimate gatherings, the covered porch is beautifully furnished with teak plantation chairs and wicker.
Windwardside was created to meet the desire to travel in groups with friends and loved ones yet still maintain a sense of privacy while doing so. This focus on privacy also makes it a wonderful retreat for couples. The whole complex - the Great House (master bedroom, pullout bed in living room, two baths) and the guesthouse (one bedroom, one bath) can be rented as one by larger groups. Smaller groups or couples can choose from either the main house or the guest house. When rented individually privacy is assured by the orientation of the buildings and the heavy plantings screening them from one another.

Entertainment: Location: Coral Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Windwardside is located in quiet seclusion with mesmerizing views of Coral Bay, nearby islands and the Caribbean Sea. The house is situated two thirds of a mile up a little used road in Coral Bay. Surrounded by tropical plantings and marvelous vistas, you are still just a short drive to a cool splash in Salt Pond Bay or other equally inviting white sand beaches. Restaurants, shops and watersports are all available within two miles in Coral Bay. The main town on the island, Cruz Bay, is located 8 miles away. The airport is in St. Thomas which is reached via a twenty minute ferry ride. (Ferries leave every hour on the hour and cost $3 each way)
