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!
