Johns Folly Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Tradewinds Cottage: Stunning Ocean Views from Every Room! 1 or 2 Bedrooms
PLEASE NOTE: Rental rates are noted for rental of 1 bedroom for 2 guests. The second bedroom can be rented for an additional $300/week, raising the maximum occupancy to 4 guests.
Tradewinds is a two bedroom cottage perched high above John's Folly Bay in the scenic, quiet southeastern corner of St. John. It is available as either a one or two bedroom bungalow that can accommodate 2 - 4 guests. If it's just two of you, the downstairs bedroom is locked and unoccupied for the week. If you'd like more room, the downstairs bedroom and bath can be made available to accommodate a total of 4 guests for an additional $300 per week. A 40 minute drive from Cruz Bay (your ferry arrival point), we are just a one minute drive to Salt Pond Beach and 5 minutes to Coral Bay. Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the deck and fall asleep to the sound of waves on the beach below.
This charming wooden cottage features light, airy rooms with stunning ocean views throughout. The deck commands a panoramic view of the British Virgin Islands, and a southeastern exposure offers breathtaking sunrises - if you're up that early! Steady tradewinds keep the house cool on hot days and ensure bug-free evenings.
Tradewinds can be rented as either a one-bedroom or two-bedroom unit. Renting as a 1BR grants access to the upper level featuring a kitchen/living room/eating area, bedroom, and bathroom. For more space, rent Tradewinds as a 2BR cottage (an additional $300 per week) granting you access to both the upper and lower levels - one bedroom and bathroom on each level. The lower level, accessed by an enclosed outside stairway, features a beautiful bedroom with a private balcony and a bathroom with ocean views. This configuration is designed for maximum privacy between two bedrooms - each with its own private bath. This set-up is NOT good for small children, as bedrooms are far apart and access between levels is via a covered outside stairway. The choice is yours, one bedroom or two! If you reserve only the upstairs bedroom the second bedroom is vacant and locked.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This rental is the best value on the Island! Its clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and inviting, peaceful, tranquil, relaxing, with gorgeous views. You will love this charming vacation home in Paradise. The owners have stocked this home with everything you could possibly need to make your stay memorable and enjoyable, you will want to come back again and again.
Doug and I are a GREAT team... he can design or build just about anything, and I'm a good assistant, with my own tool belt! I'm also a master gardener, and pretty good with a paint brush!
Twenty-one years ago my husband Doug and I visited the island and fell in love with the place. We purchased this cottage – in need of more than a little TLC – in 1999, renovated it and have been renting it ever since. Every year at the beginning of the season we spend two weeks in St. John opening the cottage and making sure every inch is sparkling clean and in perfect working order. Then, our property management company, Cimmaron, comes in every week and inspects everything, cleans until every detail is sparkling, and fixes anything that might need a repair!
Our guests tell us that this place feels like HOME the minute you walk in. Wake up to the sound of the waves below, watch the sunrise from your bed, go out on the deck for coffee, then go off to the beach all day. When you come home at night, have a few beverages on the deck, listen to reggae on the sound system, and enjoy your little tropical paradise escape.
