Overview

Bordeaux Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, loft, Sleeps 4-6

Bella Vista, a beautiful St. John villa rental, is true to it's name. A spacious mountain retreat with spectacular views of picturesque Caribbean Sea & British Virgin Islands. A long, 2 story layout allows for lots of privacy & every room opens onto it's own deck. You can enjoy the breeze as well as the views, which extend from Jost Van Dyke across Tortola & out to Virgin Gorda, no matter where you are in the home. From the parking area of this St. John vacation rental, follow the winding steps through beautifully terraced gardens. From the entry, step in to the spacious 2 story living room, furnished with TV, DVD player & stereo with CD player.

NOTE: This home is managed by its owners Mark & Annie, who reside in the caretakers apartment on the lower-level with separate entrance. You will rarely see the owners, but they are readily available to address your needs.

Luxurious decorating and wonderful art have been combined with beautiful wood work, tile and hardwood floors to create a stunning, yet comfortable interior in this very special island home.

A fully furnished kitchen, with lots of counter space, has a full stove, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator with ice maker. There is a telephone and an answering machine, as well as a separate laundry room on the lower level with washer and dryer. Beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and an umbrella are available.

There are two guest bedrooms, each with a queen bed and a private full baths. The 'Blue Room' is located on the second floor and the 'Green Room' is on the main level, adjacent to the living room. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, or leave the French doors open and enjoy the tropical breeze. There are plenty of lounge chairs to enjoy the view and find your favorite constellation. The loft is above the Great room, offering additional space which sleeps 2 guests in a Queen bed and Full bed.

Bella Vista is a wonderful house for a secluded honeymoon, but is equally comfortable with two couples or a small family.

This St. John villa rental is five miles (20 minutes) from Cruz Bay on Centerline Road and then one and a half miles on the paved Bordeaux Mountain Road. The last .25 mile to Bella Vista is unpaved (4WD is A MUST), and is an adventurous drive. It is a six minute drive to the Northshore Beaches; three minutes to the Reef Bay Trail; seven minutes to Coral Bay; From the front door, you can hike the Bordeaux Mountain Trail to Lameshur Beach in one hour.

St. John is reached from St. Thomas via a twenty min. ferry ride. St. Thomas is primarily serviced by Delta, American, US Air and United from the states.

NOTE: This home is managed by its owners Mark & Annie, who reside in the caretakers apartment on the lower-level with separate entrance. You will rarely see the owners, but they are readily available to address your needs.

NOTE, NOTE: If you are not adventurous, our house may not be for you, as the last 1/4 mile to our house is off road. It's really not bad, but it's not paved - if you've driven on hilly dirt roads with rocks before, then you'll be fine. The ride is worth the view. This ain't Kansas any more Toto...

About Mark & Annie

Hi! We're Mark and Annie, the owners of Bella Vista. We live in New Jersey most of the year with our Island dog Bella.

Mark & Annie purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark & Annie chose Bordeaux Mountain

We like the privacy and tranquility of Bella Vista, and waking up to the stunning views every morning. It's close enough, and far enough, from everything you need.

What makes this house unique

The View (not the show on TV).

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have rented Bella Vista for a week on 4 separate occasions dating back to 2004. It’s an open, roomy, well-maintained lovely home with rich wood details. It’s comfortably furnished and has a lovely spacious kitchen with a large refrigerator. A gas grill is close by on a porch. The furniture of the main living room is generous in size and there is a large TV with a full selection of programming. As well, there is a very reliable high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection throughout the home.



The bedrooms are each well appointed with custom detailing and very comfortable beds. The linens and towels are all fresh and new and the bathrooms’ clean, modern and spacious.



The biggest and best feature of this fantastic home is its location. Spectacular panoramic views of eastern St. John and the BVI’s will not fail to impress you. The morning and evening skies are something to behold! The position of the home high in the hills allows for wonderful trade winds. These breezes keep the home from overheating and the bugs to a minimum. A multitude of beautiful birds are close at hand and there are frequently hummingbirds dashing about.



I have visited St. John 12 times since 1992 and have stayed at Bella Vista 4 times. It offers a wonderful setting, great comfort and is a fantastic value. I have found the owners to be very fair in their dealings and they have always more than lived up to their commitments. I hope to stay at Bella Vista many more times in the years to come.

What can I say. Our trip was nothing less then spectacular. The house was beautifully done, incredibly comfortable and VERY private. The views are absolutely amazing. My 6th trip to St. John and by far my favorite. This is the only way to do St. John.

A great way to experience St. John

  • 4 of 5
We spent nine restful days at Bella Vista over Christmas. The house has everything you need for a family vacation in paradise - perfect central location for exploring all sides of the island and its beaches, fantastic views that are worth just staying put, home comforts that you simply don't get in a resort. Some of the things we liked best about the house were its many decks, each giving a different vista and making the whole place feel very airy and open, the privacy between the two bedrooms, and the living room with its soaring ceiling and comfortable armchairs, ideal for evening reading and chatting. The rugged driveway is part of the authentic "St. John experience," and we did it in our Jeep at least twice a day (even after heavy rain) without a problem.

One thing that doesn't fully come across in the listing is the amount of space this house has. Besides the two comfortable bedrooms, there is a spacious sleeping loft that would easily accommodate children or even another small family. We were three adults plus a toddler, and we loved the feeling of never being "on top of" one another.

And we must not forget Viky, the wonderful greeter who was so helpful in getting us settled and checked in halfway through our stay. Mark and Annie (who were off-island) were also incredibly responsive and helpful via email.

We recommend staying here! Thanks for a lovely, relaxing vacation.

Peaceful Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5
Staying in Bella Vista for two weeks convinced Stef, Linda, Dave and I there is peace on earth. The sounds of nature and the beautiful views are precious. The accomadations were exceptional considering you are on top of a mountain in beautiful St. John. Mark was extremely helpful and available for assistance if needed. We visited many beaches and enjoyed cooking on the grill. Vacation was an A+. Will definitely be returning.

Bird's Eye View!

Hi Mark and Annie,

We had wonderful time. Your house is beautiful, inside and out. And that road is quite an adventure (as are all the roads on St. John) but well worth the trip. We felt like we were in a bird's net on that deck. What a spectacular view!

We appreciated the bottle of wine and the list of recommendations you left. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to try all the restaurants. Maybe next time! We did try to snorkel at as many beaches as possible, though. Mat had to drag me out of the water. I am a ceramic artist and mostly what I do is sea creatures, both sculptural and functional work. I have renewed inspiration.

We hope to come to beautiful St. John again sometime.

Thanks,
Karen and Mat
