We designed and built Bay Grove as our home in 1994, intending St. John to be our final destination. Having purchased a farm in Puerto Rico IN 2007, we now split our time between St. John and Puerto Rico and are offering to share our private home on St. John with you.

Pam purchased this house in 1994

We travelled to St. John on business in November of 1990 and fell in love with it. We searched the island for the perfect piece of property for us to build our final destination home. We spent much time sitting on pieces of property at all hours of the day and nite just so we could find the perfect spot. We sat on parcels with views, parcels near the ocean, parcels on both ends of the island, parcels near town(s), and parcels in the woods. We finally found the perfect parcel, where we built our home. Our home is located on Bordeaux Mountain in the center of the island with easy access to both towns and all the beaches, and is one of the few lots that actually has a yard with grass! The 1200 foot elevation of Bordeaux Mountain combined with the constant flow of the tradewinds allows the fresh, cool, tropical air to flow through the large screened windows which cools our home naturally. There is a nice sunset view of French Cap.

We have always enjoyed the coolness of the altitude on Bordeaux Mountain, and the quiet, serenity of our home's location. It's a great place to relax, unwind, and get away from it all. From enjoying the presence of the humming and sugar birds, occasional wild deer, and donkeys, watching the sunset over French Cap, to star-gazing with the singing croakies at night, our home, Bay Grove, is one of our most favorite spots on earth and we are glad to be able to share all the comforts of our private home and Guest Cottage with you.

QUIET RETREAT IN THE WOODS.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights, and it was wonderful! The cottage was well appointed, clean, and generally cool. It had air conditioning, but we only used it a couple of times. It was roomy enough for us to spread out stuff out, and had a nicely furnished kitchenette.
The renters were on site during our visit, and were very hospitable, making sure were had everything we needed. They pointed us to a lot of great, off the beaten track things to see and do.
We had a wonderful stay, and were very happy with the location, away from the hustle and bustle. A caution, like much of St John, a Jeep or other 4WD vehicle is a good idea.

DEEP ISLAND EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I wanted a relaxing, comfortable place to stay on St. John with our adult daughter as we celebrated our 35th anniversary. This was our fourth trip to the island, but the first time we rented a house there (We used to stay at the Maho Bay campgrounds.)
Bay Grove proved to be perfect in every way. As the VRBO listing says, it's breezy and secluded on top of Bordeaux Mountain, which means virtually no mosquitos or no-seeums! (A nice change from Maho.) The main house was spacious with super-comfortable couches. The kitchen was huge and well-stocked for those who like to cook (as we do). We ate almost every meal at home. The bedroom was spacious and the mattress perfect - firm but not hard. High on the mountain, the house was warm but not hot in the daytime, and cool as soon as evening set in.
Our daughter slept in the cottage, which provided a perfect combination of personal space for her, but close enough so we were "together."
Bay Grove does not have spectacular views, but it's a short drive to anywhere you want to go. If you want the deep island experience, I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you found Bay Grove to be the perfect respite from busy NYC! We are working on topping off the trees to give the guests a sunset water view so frequently asked for. Thank you for your comments in the guest book also. It was a pleasure meeting and accommodating you on your visit to St. John.

ALL IT IS CRACKED UP TO BE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary on St John, it was our second time to the island and this time we selected Bay Grove. This place is much larger than it looks in the pictures and the grounds are amazing and very well kept. It is very quiet and secluded, just like the other reviews said, and Pam provided everything for us and checked to make sure all was well during our time. It is close enough to all the beaches but offers a nice mountain breeze at night that is a perfect get away from the heat. As mentioned in other reviews, the shower very relaxing under the stars. I almost hate to write a review because I don't want other people finding out about this place!!! We will definitely be back as often as possible.

Owner's Response: Laura and Jed...we are so glad that you enjoyed Bay Grove so much! We appreciate the care you gave to our home and are glad you found everything to be beyond your expectations!!! We find it quite amusing that you don't want anyone else to know about it! We've had a few people say the same. :) We so enjoyed meeting you both and would be more that happy to accommodate you on your return visit(s) to St. John! Hope to see you soon!!!

BEST YET!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd consecutive year on St. John and we were very lucky to find Bay Grove. It's in a secluded, quiet neighborhood high up on Bordeaux Mountain. The house is beautiful and impeccably clean, the photos don't do it justice. There's a wraparound porch, a patio in the rear with a gas grill and an amazing stone outdoor shower off the bathroom. The property is landscaped with lovely plantings and a gurgling fountain, it's shaded so the days and nights were cool with no need for air conditioning. The location is great from our point of view, about equidistant from either Cruz Bay or Coral Bay. North Shore beaches easy to get to from this central location. There is no panoramic view but we didn't miss it a bit. The owner was very accommodating, we were delayed by bad weather but when we arrived 2 days late the owner met us to show us around the property. There is a guest cottage on the property and it was occupied during our stay but it's not close to the main house and certainly no intrusion to your privacy. There are 2 kayaks available for use as well as coolers, beach towels and snorkeling equipment. We certainly hope to return, Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Joe and Barbara - Although you were few days late on your arrival, it was a pleasure meeting you and getting you settled in to Bay Grove. I had a wonderful time chatting and having dinner with you. I'm glad you had such a great time and that Bay Grove was such a great experience for your vacation. We hope to be able to accommodate you on your next adventure to St. John! Thank you for the wonderful review.

ALMOST HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Unfortunately, we live a frantic life on the Mainland and were looking forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary away from phones and people with some privacy. We were so thrilled over the seclusion of this lovely house...Lush greenery everywhere, breakfasts on the porch in our pjs, windows opened at night to the sound of gurgling fountain water, painting on wrap around porch, gazing at the blue skies while showering..

We rented a jeep and spent our days trying out all the different beaches as well as hiking. At the end of the day, it was nice to come back to a quiet house and enjoy wine in peace.

We were so appreciative of the wine and snacks that Pam had waiting for us after our long journey. She was an absolute delight to work with- she has that rare combination of a warm friendliness with a professional attention to details. She provided snorkeling gear, beach chairs, restaurant recommendations and local attraction recommendations. It was the summation of all these small things that made our trip even more relaxing. Thank you Pam!
