STOWAWAY is a breezy two story unit; excellent for two couples or a family. It is part of a small, 8 unit group known as VILLAS ON THE UPPER DECK. It is located just above town, making car rental optional. Three grocery stores are a short walk away.
The first floor consists of living, dining, kitchen, laundry, half bath, dining deck, front deck, and entry. The upper floor has two very separate bedrooms each with its own bath and deck. One bedroom has an added sleeping loft.
Gardens, tropical trees and a new pool create a West Indies feeling. Views are wonderful.
You will be met at the ferry, taken to the grocery and settled into your villa by a native, who will be able to answer all your questions and be available by phone during your stay.

As a yacht designer married to a yacht dealer, I have sailed most of the Caribbean. St John is by far the best place to live and vacation. If it isn't first in some particular category, it is surely 2nd or 3rd. I have my home, Callaloo, mid island on St John, and I keep my boat in Coral Bay. This villa has been a permanent residence until now. This year it was completely refurbished, and I'm offering it below market to jump-start the vacation rentals.
Before buying in St. John, I considered settling on St. Barths. I weighed the pros and cons of each place. St. Barths offers a bit of Paris (a place I adore), but St. John offered a lot more of everything else. Dependable, affordable phone and internet service, 22 beaches, good dining (although pricey), affordable air fares, hiking trails, and the heavy hand of the US Government which keeps St. John safe, beautiful, and accessible to all. We respect nature, wildlife, beaches, reefs, and the sea. We adore our wild donkeys!

We've been to Stowaway twice now and can't wait for our third visit. It is one of the best places on the Island, with fantastic views from two balconies, pool, parking and close to Cruz Bay, shopping, the car ferry, you name it. Georgia has a caretaker on the Island so you are always able to connect with someone at a moment's notice and Marcia is on top of things via email. Fantastic property for two couples. Brilliant sunsets, gas grill on the lower patio, kitchen fully equipped, dishwasher, washer dryer, all the comforts of home in a remarkable setting. We have found our paradise.
Another wonderful and relaxing week on St. John and at Stowaway. Always a pleasure to return and enjoy Georgia and David's hospitality. Could not ask for a more beautiful view or more convenient location. We have come to consider Stowaway our home away from home while enjoying a week of total relaxation on St. John. Sit back and relax!!
Just returned from our fifth stay at Stowaway! We enjoy it so much we keep coming back!! Georgia and David have thought of everything. Marcia is exceptionally helpful with any prevacation questions.
Especially like having early morning coffee on the deck! This year the skies were exceptional! A full moon really brightened up the night and after a quick shower one day, we were blessed with a beautiful double rainbow!
Highly recommend a stay on St. John at Stowaway!
We stayed at Stowaway for February school vacation 2015 and this property could not have been better. Georgia and Marcia were extremely helpful. The property comes with almost everything that you could ever need and the location is super convenient. We hope to stay as Stowaway again!
My friend and I spent a week at Stowaway. This was the perfect set up for two single people or two couples as the bedrooms are of equal size and both have their own bath. The condo is bright, clean and has absolutely stunning views of Cruz Bay. We had everything we needed, including beach chairs and towels, which made it so much easier to explore the many beaches of St. John on our own. Even though we were just two of us, we could each find our own spots to sit, relax and enjoy the views. This would easily be a perfect place for two couples. Marcia, her mother Georgia, and our local contact, TBird were all so helpful. They really went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Love, love, love Stowaway!
Our family of 5 spent 9 relaxing nts in March at the Stowaway. The lay out worked well for us. 2 kids shared the spare room and our younger one slept in the loft in our room. Condo is clean & comfortable and well stocked (coolers, beach towels, beach chairs & umbrella were much appreciated!). Condo is perched on hillside with about 10 other units overlooking Westin - spectacular view! My husband booked with Cruz Bay Divers at the Westin for scuba diving. It was nice to be relaxing at the pool and see his dive boat pull up at the dock and know when he would be back to the condo shortly. Markets & town are quick 5 min drive. North shore beaches are about 15-20 minute drive - very convenient. Marcia was very helpful prior to the trip (we opted to rent car at STT and car ferry over on her advice- worked well). Our greeter, T-bird (the local songbird on the island) was so friendly and offered her number during our stay (which we did use to text her and ask a couple of questions). I looked at all kinds of properties for our stay on STJ. I was so glad I chose this one once we arrived - location (close to everything, yet quiet and peaceful), value (everything on STJ is expensive so the price was right on this condo) and that beautiful view!
