Why Mooncottage feels 'just right' for couples.
Most St. John villas are just built too large to feel cozy and romantic for couples. Mooncottage isn't too big of a villa. It was designed for couples and feels just right ... and you will feel right at home. From the gentle sounds at night to the brilliant turquoise colors by day, its magic surrounds you. St. John's world-class beaches are only minutes away. Wonderful local restaurants and bars close by. But the panoramic views day or night will simply blow your mind

I have been a fan of the Caribbean for most of my life. When I came to St. John in the late 90's, I knew this was the place--still feel that way.
My wife Tania and I love and care for Mooncottage as it is more than a just rental property, it is a labor of love--and our greatest pleasure is enchanted guests.
On our main Mooncottage website (just search Mooncottage on Google or Trip Advisor) you will find countless testimonials from people who have experienced Mooncottage as a rare piece of heaven.
I have an entertainment and marketing background -- and share my time between NYC and St. John (the ultimate expression of beautiful extremes).
I have never had a 'real job' ... for very long.

St. John in my estimation is the most beautiful and pristine of islands in the Caribbean or anywhere in the world ... as well as one of the most natural and relaxing. You can go out in the day or evening and feel safe anywhere. The island itself is 2/3 National Park - meaning the beaches and trails are always maintained and kept clean and free of vendors. Mooncottage is surrounded by undeveloped land on 3 sides and has only one villa far below to call it's neighbor. We also rent and manage this villa as well so you really DO know your neighbors. Nature is everywhere and the trade wind breezes day or night are soft and magical. There is only ONE Mooncottages.
- Unequaled Privacy

- Minutes from all of St. John's legendary beaches
- Located at the top of the property - no road noise or intrusions

Mooncottage is special in every way. Our most recent visit (March, 2013) was our fourth or fifth (we've lost count) and it will not be our last.
We have rented several villas on St. John and elsewhere in the Caribbean, including on Nevis and St. Barths. Considering all factors (convenient location, friendly people, the National Park beaches, restaurants, good value), St. John is the best and for a couple, Mooncottage is the best of St. John.
Brian Vandenbroucke's seven year project has been spectacularly executed, down to every detail. The view from 700' up is mesmerizing, facing east/southeast over Hurricane Hole, Sir Francis Drake Channel on to Virgin Gorda to provide great light, but also protection from the heat of the late afternoon.
The creative asian-influenced design and warm woodwork are pleasing to the eye and the lighting system adds to the mood. There is total privacy. With a well-equipped modern kitchen and other amenities it is tempting never to leave the cottage. But the beaches beckon, an average of about 15 minutes away. Our favorite is Jumby, on the North Shore.
While the road up may be adventurous for some, recent improvements make it very easy, even returning from a candlelit dinner at our favorite St. John restaurant, Sweet Plantains, nearby.
We have been fortunate to be able to enjoy Mooncottage almost every winter and are already considering our next visit!
