Bordeaux Mountain Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6, easterly views of St. John & BVIs

Brisas del Mar is located on the eastern side of St John overlooking Coral Bay, a 30 minute drive from Cruz Bay. The villa is situated just a 10 minute drive to shops, restaurants and bars in Coral Bay. Several beautiful national park beaches are a 15 to 25 minute drive.

Enjoy the beautiful sunrise and Caribbean sea breezes from this villa perched 300 feet above Coral Bay on the western hillside. This quaint harbor is filled with cruising sailboats from St John and other ports throughout the western hemisphere.

Brisas del Mar is primarily a one level villa with the pool and deck directly outside the sliding glass doors with a hot tub on the lower deck.

The great room affords expansive views of East End and the British Virgin Islands through two sets of screened sliding glass windows. All 3 bedrooms have sliding doors with similar east views. The house has tiled floors throughout, beamed and vaulted ceilings, and ceiling fans in every room. The living area includes cable TV, wifi internet access, DVD, stereo with CD and cassette deck player, books, games, puzzles, telephones and tropical artwork.

There is seating for diners at the casual bar or formal mahogany table seating six or enjoy the view from the glass topped table on the deck.

The well equipped kitchen features mahogany cabinets and island, stainless refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, espresso machine, toaster, blender, mixer, cookware and dinnerware.

The two en suite bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the villa on the main level to ensure maximum privacy. A spiral staircase leads to the third en suite bedroom with private balcony and spectacular sunrise vistas. Bed linens, towels and beach towels are provided.

An outdoor gas grill and laundry room with washer and dryer complete the 'at home in paradise' atmosphere. Ice chests in several sizes and beach chairs are available for island exploring.

The last half-mile access to the villa is on a road, part of which has unpaved switch-backs, that may require 4-wheel drive in tropical showers.

About Susan and Bob Voigt

After many vacations on St. John since 1968, we bought this beautiful villa with a fabulous view of Coral Bay and cooling breezes on the quiet side of the island. We extended the sun deck and added a lower deck and hot tub to make the villa even more attractive. It is a great retreat after a day at the beach to snorkel! Although we live in Virginia, we have a great couple nearby, Buck and Sally, taking care of our villa for us.

Susan and Bob Voigt purchased this villa in 2004

Why Susan and Bob Voigt chose Bordeaux Mountain

We have vacationed on several other Caribbean islands, but St. John is our favorite! The USVI National Park covers over two-thirds of the island and offers many protected beaches with great snorkeling. Our villa is central to south, east end and the north shore beaches.

What makes this villa unique

The spectacular view, the comfortable layout, and well equipped kitchen make this villa a comfortable vacation home for families or up to 3 couples. The final half-mile drive up the hillside on a partially paved road provides a chance to experience St. John the way it was 25 years ago.

Wonderful Home for our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 day stay at Brisas Del Mar. It was our 3rd stay on St John but our 1st at Brisas Del Mar. Prior to our arrival, the owner was extremely helpful in answering all our questions which was great! Please note the road up to the house has sections that would be extremely difficult without a 4WD vehicle. When we first pulled up to the house we were surprised how close the neighbors were but honestly it didn't end up being a problem. We only saw the neighbor twice the whole time we were there and when we apologized if we were making too much noise she repeatedly told us not to worry about it and encouraged us to make as much noise as we wanted and to enjoy our vacation. This was music to our ears and really helped us enjoy the rest of our trip without constantly worrying our 3 kids were irritating the neighbor while splashing in the pool. She even brought our girls some candy on Halloween. Very sweet lady! Brisas was close enough to a few Coral Bay restaurants and stores for a quick run "down the mountain" to Skinny Legs for dessert (their Key Lime Pie is AMAZING!) or to pick up a missing ingredient from Love City Mini Mart. The views were fantastic off of the deck and especially off of the 2nd floor balcony. We had several incredible sunrises during our stay and loved to sit on the deck sipping our coffee watching the sunrise. The pool was fantastic and was thoroughly enjoyed by our whole party! About 8 days into our trip the pool started getting a little cloudy after a quick text the caretaker Buck came up and cleaned it up. After a few hours it looked brand new again. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed during our stay. Plenty of linens, beach toys and chairs. The kitchen at Brisas was great, lots of pots, pans and other cookware. We cooked most of our meals in so this was a HUGE help! The TV was new and appeared to work great (although it was rarely turned on), also a brand new grill which was perfect for cooking up a dinner without heating up the house anymore. On that note, there is no A/C and for some people that might be a deal breaker, however we didn't find it to be an issue. 2 of the 3 bedrooms have fantastic breezes and the third (the wicker bedroom) was good as long as the sliding door was open to the deck. All in all we had a fantastic stay at Brisas Del Mar and will definitely consider it again should we need a 3 bedroom on our next trip!

Best Breezes on the island!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Brisas Del Mar. The house had everything we needed with extras. The porch was perfect and the breezes were the best! We sat out every night either in the sauna or on the lounge chairs enjoying the scenery and relaxing after a fun day of snorkeling and cavorting around the island. The caretaker, Sally, is great and was informative with any questions we had.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently returned from our honeymoon where we stayed at Brisas del Mar. As I stated in the title, it was absolutely wonderful, and I don't think we could have picked a better place to celebrate the start of our new life together. The pictures above, as spectacular as they are, do not compare to seeing it and being there in person.
The villa was very comfortable, open and airy and it was equipped with everything needed for making home meals and drinks, and for days at the beach (coolers, chairs, etc).
Our stay was in July, but although it was hot, once the windows and sliding glass doors were opened it cooled off quickly letting the breezes through and was very pleasant. Much to our surprise, there were no bugs to worry about (at least not at the villa).
As noted in other reviews, a portion of the road to the villa is steep, unpaved and bumpy. You have to have a 4 wheel drive with decent clearance. Our jeep wrangler handled it easily, and we considered it part of the adventure. We became quite used to it after a couple days.
Another thing to note is that the villa does have free wifi, which came in very handy for researching online and planning our activities during our stay.

The owners and the greeters were very friendly, helpful, and easy to work with.

We give Brisas del Mar 5 stars. We are hoping to return again soon with friends/family.

A week at Brisas Del Mar!

  • 5 of 5
When I first saw the pictures of Brisas Del Mar on VRBO I was captivated by the view and the potential of how good of a fit the villa would be for our family. The views, and the constant breezes, exceeded our expectations. As a family we have been traveling mainly through VRBO and other home rental agencies for the past few years, as I prefer staying in houses to hotels. Brisas Del Mar is the first rental we've ever had that lacked nothing. Everything our family needed was in the villa and then some. We loved jumping in the pool to start the day, and unwinding in the hot tub after a busy day on the beaches.

The three bedrooms, and bathrooms were all very nice, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We loved the tile in the bathrooms and through-out the house. It gave the house a very warm feeling.

The road to the house is bumpy and you need to be aware of that, but you do get used to it after a few trips. The caretakers - Sally and Buck - are really great and are available to answer any questions that you might have.

Our family had a great stay at Brisas Del Mar, and only wished that our vacation had lasted longer. We can only hope we get to vacation in this lovely house again.

Thanks so much!

Brisas is PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from 9 days at Brisas del Mar. SPECTACULAR is absolutely how to describe the view from this home on a ridge above Coral Bay. This was our 9th trip to St. John and our 1st stay at Brisas and this was by far our favorite location and villa and we will stay here again and again!!
The house was clean, clean, clean, as was the pool and hot-tub and everything was in great condition, beds were super comfy, there were plenty of bath towels & linens, items for the beach such as coolers, chairs, towels, etc. The kitchen was well stocked so we were able to prepare a number of meals at the villa. The house has a great layout and we would definitely bring family and/or friends when we return. We enjoyed ourselves so much at the house that we actually had 3 "villa" days just relaxing and enjoying the pool, breezes, hot-tub, breezes - oh and did I mention those wonderful breezes!! LOL! Seriously though - we had some warm days but those breezes and the ceiling fans kept the bugs away and the house cool at all times. Lots of wildlife up there, goats, roosters - birds all day long, tree frogs at night and 2 days in a row we watched a very young red-tail hawk testing its wings and hovering on the wind currents above the villa and practicing free-dives.... so very cool!
The road up was a typical Coral Bay road, and a bit bumpy in spots but definitely worth the adventure of going up and down every day to end up with that beautiful view!! We booked a private full day into sunset sail with Jimmy and his first mate Brita on Kiote and it was fabulous - we snorkeled gorgeous NewFound Bay -and highly recommend a sail on Kiote!! For dining, we suggest on the Coral Bay side Aqua Bistro for great food - (Ponzu Tuna night was wonderful) plus try their macadamia crusted grouper (delicious), Shipwreck Landing for the prettiest Bushwackers, Skinny's for burgers and potent Pain Killers and Caribbean Oasis for great pecan fried chicken. In Cruz Bay our favorites are always Lime Inn, sandwiches from Sam & Jacks and Candies BBQ - she makes the best BBQ and food on the island!!
Brisas' owners were fantastic to deal with - answered any questions we had and when we had cell phone issues when we first arrived on STJ trying to contact the property manager Sally, they were quick to respond and get us all set up to meet with Sally and get us to the house! We would rent this villa again in a heartbeat and look forward to returning soon!!

Great Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a super lovely stay at Brisas del Mar. The place was clean, the couches and beds super comfortable, the view was incredible, and every amenity we could need was provided. The pool and hot tub were clean and used every day :) A jeep is definitely a requirement to get to the villa, but we quickly got used to driving the uneven roads. This home-away-from-home is definitely recommended, although keep in mind that a car is required to get around.
