Monkey No Climb is a West Indian Style home completed in 2008, perched 1,070 feet high on Bordeaux Mountain above the community of Coral Bay. Marvel at the breathtaking views of Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay, Tortola, Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole and the entire Sir Francis Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda. Explore the slow paced nature island of St. John and all that the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park has to offer.
Monkey No Climb is perfect for nature lovers, artists, writers, birders, hikers, newlyweds, newly in love or people in search of seclusion. The focal point of Monkey No Climb is the totally private, large covered porch. From this vantage point you can relax in our four person spa and scan one of the most pristine views in the Caribbean. This breezy location can actually become chilly in the evenings as you star gaze towards the east.
The villa features two equal size bedrooms and two equal size private bathrooms. Both bedrooms have A/C units and firm king size beds. Monkey No Climb exhibits bright colors, a beautifully stained cypress hip roof, quality wicker and traditional hardwood furniture, Caribbean wall hangings and whimsical furnishings. Additional amenities include satellite television/internet, laptop size safe, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, ceiling fans, stationary 'Life Cycle' exercise cycle, and many comfortable outdoor chairs.. The villa enjoys end of the road quiet, many large shade trees, vacant surrounding lots and complete privacy from neighboring homes. Monkey No Climb plantings include bananas, limes, lemons, starfruits, mangos, papayas, tree orchids and Monkey No Climb tree.
Our representative can meet you at the Cruz Bay ferry or Coral Bay area, help you secure your rental car and lead you to the villa for a personal orientation of the house. The drive is totally paved with an easy to navigate paved driveway. The Monkey can now also be reached directly from Centerline Road (Route 10). Please watch out for chickens, goats, donkeys and cows in the roadway on your drive.
The villa is centrally located to all beaches on the north and south shores, twenty US National Park hiking trails and is just five minutes from shopping and restaurants in parking friendly Coral Bay. When the surf is up on the north shore beaches remember the south shore beaches of Salt Pond and Little Lameshur. They are destinations worth exploring even in calm seas. Driving out to the East End of St. John is not to be missed. Escape your everyday world and experience the Caribbean from the mountain side retreat Monkey No Climb.
My wife and I chose to build on St. John and this particular lot because of the spectacular views it affords along with the buffer zones between properties. The location offers end of the road privacy and quiet with many large trees and vacant surrounding lots.
Just want to start by saying what a place. Wow. We absolutely loved mnc. The villa is definitely private. This was our honeymoon and it was an amazing stay. Five stars means just that. Hate to leave this wonderful place . It was well furnished, comfortable bed, excellent kitchen and so much more. The drive up to mnc is steep but a jeep in 2wd goes up fine. Extremely quiet and private. Monkey no climb is on top of our list of places to stay. Thanks Bart for allowing us to share your villa. Max and shelly
We just returned from a fabulous 8 nights/7 days at Monkey No Climb (Coral Bay, St. John). The villa was absolutely perfect for us (2 couples) with identical king rooms, a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable living area, stunning views from the covered deck, and a wonderful hot tub. Truth be told, we didn't go out for dinner one time while we there because it was just so darn relaxing at the villa in the late afternoon and evening! We grilled/cooked at home and enjoyed the views from the hot tub and deck (along with sipping Painkillers, of course). The breezes were so nice at the villa -- we had virtually no problem with mosquitos, although they were a big problem lower down the mountain. The owner was great to work with, as was Peggy, the on-island manager. Peggy showed us the house on arrival, answered all our questions, and she (or her husband) came immediately when we needed something. We were so happy we chose the Coral Bay side of the island and so happy we chose Monkey No Climb. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend the villa for 2 couples. (You definitely need 4WD, however.)
We spent a wonderful 10 days at the villa. The gardens were lush and complete with orchids. The views of the BVI's were exceptional. The hot tub was great even during the occasional rainy day. Beds and furnishings very comfortable. The villa was spacious, clean and well maintained. We highly recommend this villa.
We had a fantastic time at MNC for our recent honeymoon in the US and British Virgin Islands. The house was in perfect shape and the views were breathtaking -- we saw rainbows from above! It's conveniently located near Coral Bay restaurants and a short drive from several beaches, but far enough from the bustle of Cruz Bay to be peaceful. We highly recommend MNC for future travelers.
Convenient location and paved roads. It was a perfect layout for 2 couples-bedrooms are on opposite ends of the great room.It had everything we needed in the kitchen and amazing views. Also the most comfortable beds we ever had in a rental!
