Overview

Mamey Peak Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

Few properties are closer to the Virgin Island National Park beaches on St. John's beautiful north shore. Four minutes to fabulous Maho Bay or Francis Bay and just fifteen minutes from Cruz Bay town, Swogjan's Dragon is a three bedroom villa with 2300 square feet of indoor living space and extensive outdoor decks. There is also a huge pool, hot tub, and unbelievable panoramic views of the US and British Virgin Islands. See all the way to Virgin Gorda, and Northerly views to Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke.

The property is perfect for beach loving families and honeymooners alike, with a private but very accessible location. If hiking is your thing, the Reef Bay trail is only a mile away.

Looking for even more peace and quiet? Swogjan's is located just minutes from dining and live music in Coral Bay.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Andretti

The owners, from Massachusetts, are a bit shy... but don't let our personal shyness deter you from enjoying our beautiful home. Our property manager can answer all of your questions.

Andretti purchased this villa in 1997

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location. The property is so close to Centerline Road and the North Shore turnoff to the VI National Park beaches, yet it feels worlds away. The views are simply breathtaking. Visit just once and you'll understand why no other property can match this location!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Swogjan's Dragon was the perfect place for me, my husband and our friends who traveled with us to St. John. The house was nicely furnished, beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of cooking utensils and parking at the house was some of the best I have experiended in 25 years of going to St. John. Swogjan's is very centrally located which made going to the beaches an easy drive. The location of the house made for some of the most fabulous breezes ever experienced in St. John (good for keeping the mosquitos at bay!). Air condition was really not needed, but it is great to have it if one needs it. Thanks for adding it to Swogjan's! Views were spectacular -- down to Coral Bay, the Sir Francis Drake passage, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola -- just breath taking!! Thanks for sharing "the Dragon" with us. A great time was had by all.

St John Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful two weeks with friends and family. The home, pool and hot tub were clean and comfortable. The views from the deck were spectacular. St. John Properties couldn't of been more accommodating to anything extra we needed, which wasn't much. Aqua Blue car rental was a great recommendation, also. Thank you for taking such good care of us. We will be back!

Arriving late at night, all we could confirm was that there was beer/wine in the fridge,chips and salsa, the hot tub worked well, the pool looked great,the burros out by the road seemed nothing more than curious,and it was warm. Hours later the sun came up over Coral Bay (the quieter side of the island) and the place looked even better. Sit and read on the deck, soak in the tub,sway in the hammock, slip into the pool,exchange your coffee cup for a cocktail. There's a (under utilized) stone patio off the front of the house that says "take a nap here". Several great beaches (like something out a travel brochure great) and Coral Bay food/drink are 5-10 winding minutes away. Go 15 minutes the other way to Cruz Bay, the not as quiet end of the island. Luxury is where you find it, I could spend a long time here.

A dragon everyone will love...

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two incredible weeks with family and friends in this beautiful home. Not a new building but charming and welcoming with its own personality (think dragons). Facing east overlooking Coral Bay provides stunning sunrises on a daily basis. A large deck, comfortable chairs, a little black strap rum - who could ask for anything more. Add in an outdoor shower (there are two indoor showers as well) and a good size pool. A car (preferably a jeep) is a must as SD is about 7 miles east (and about a thousand feet above) Cruz Bay. The drive takes about 20 minutes but you're on vacation so take your time and watch for the donkeys. Coral Bay is closer (about 3 miles), much smaller and quieter, but wonderful in its own special way. If you've been to STJ you already know about the beaches, one grander than the other.

This is a unique property that you will never forget, as is the prompt, professional service we received from the gracious staff at St. John Properties. They are the best.

Great Location to Beaches

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased with our stay at this property. It is in a great location to some of the best beaches on the island. The home was in good shape, and well maintained while we were there. There was a great breeze the whole time, and the fact that the property does not have AC, was not an issue. The pool and the view were awesome! I would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

If your visiting STJ for the first time put this on your top places to stay list!! This was our 9th trip to the Island and the central location of this villa is always what I look for first. 15 Minnutes to Cruze , 5 to Coral and just a few to two of my favorite beaches; Francis & Maho. The cool breaze and elevated location kept the temp in the lower 80's during the day while dropping it to a comfortable sleeping temp of 66 at night! We had a great time and would defenitly stay here again! If you want a relaxing vacation do not hesitate to book!
