SECLUDED & ROMANTIC: 'PINE CONE DRIVE'

Fish Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

“Pine Cone Drive” is a beautifully cozy and comfortable West Indies style home located in quiet Skytop, Fish Bay St John. The six very large concrete Pine Cones that sit on the right side of the driveway inspired the house name. The house offers a very airy & open view to our majestic mountains and lowly valley. It also provides an average ocean view on the west side. One can sit in the covered deck and just enjoy the boats pass by. Occasionally, even a cruise ship can be seen. The house has a full kitchen, living and indoor dining area, open dining at the covered deck and full laundry. For the BBQ Master enthusiast, take command of the BBQ coop at the front yard.

There are two air conditioned bedrooms; each has its own bathroom. The master bedroom is very airy. It has several windows and a door that allows the guest to step directly into the covered deck and enjoy the natural environment. The bathroom is wonderful with sliding glass shower doors that sits on nicely crafted island style stonework. Guests have the choice of lining their outfits in either an armoire or a built in closet. The second bedroom is smaller but just as cozy, with its own sliding glass shower doors and island stonework. Each bedroom also has a fan and individual lamps for reading.

Kitchen utensils and appliances are provided. Bedroom linen, shower and beach towels are provided. Small coolers and beach chairs are provided. Guests may soak away all their worries as they relax in the beautiful 6 person hot tub; or just sun bathe on the lounge chairs at the hot tub deck as they sip a cold ice tea. You will be visited by several birds as you enjoy the view of the majestic mountain range.

Fish Bay is a very quiet neighborhood that has an active association, which enforces its rules and regulations. Peace of mind and relaxation is a trademark of this neighborhood.

About The Owner

My husband and I have lived on St John for approximately 30 years. We have one young son.

We love St John because it is very quiet and very natural due to the National Park. We also enjoy the crystal clear waters that surround the island. I am a Certified Residential Appraiser by profession and my husband works at Caneel Bay Resort. We both love people regardless of what race, religious belief or nationality. Our family enjoys meeting people because it is a chance to learn something new about different cultures. We are both Christian who love God.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Fish Bay

We choose to buy in Fish Bay because it is a very clean, quiet and an uplift neighborhood. Also, because of the association that controls what can and cannot be done there. It helps up keep the neighborhood. Fish Bay is away from the main town area and the public roads. As a result, there is not as much traffic and noise that you may find in some other neighborhoods.

What makes this house unique

Some of the unique benefits of staying at Pine Cone Drive are Peace of mind, quietness and relaxation. It offers a chance to enjoy a combination of beautiful mountains and water view at the same time. Those who love nature can enjoy the natural surroundings that nature offers. The house is also very clean and the environment is inviting. For the hiking enthusiast, there is a hiking trail just a few yards from the house.

Too short a stay at Pine Cone Drive!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic property in a private and peaceful location! The 4 of us had a great stay and our only complaint is we had to leave too soon! The house is very clean and inviting with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Plenty of linens provided for the 4 of us, beach chairs, coolers, and even books for the beach. We cooked at home everynight as the grill was awesome, and we had everything we needed to prepare our dinners. The Deck was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. It was nice to have the AC at night because July is hot, but we were very comfortable on the deck and in the rest of the house as the breezes and fans kept us cool. Internet and Cable TV worked great, although we did not use them very much!

Only a 10 nminute drive to town, we normmally took the route past the market picking up what we needed, and just another 10 minutes to the North Shore. We swam with the Sea Turtles at Maho, but enjoyed almost all of them. We have been coming for 20 years, and have stayed at many places from the Camp Ground to Caneel Bay as well as many villas. Our first time staying on the Fish Bay side, and Pine Cone Drive is a perfect choice! Catherine was very helpful pre-vacation, met us in town, waited patiently for us as we got our jeep form C&C (thanks Clarice and Charles!), took us to the house, and showed us everything.

This is a great house for one or two couples povides lots of privacy. Also great for for a family with kids. A great value for the price!

We can't say Thank You enough! We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank You Mar & Tabitha for such wonderful words. At Pine Cone Drive, our ultimate desire is to make sure our guests have the best time ever. We always go the extra mile to make sure our guests are comfortable and relax while at the villa. We understand that if our guests are not fully satisfied, they will not return. Not only that, but they will tell other of their negative experience. We understand that while we are in the business to make a profit, our ultimate business is "PEOPLE & SERVICE".
I again thank your all for choosing to stay with us and hope to see you in the near future.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our honeymoon. The house was exceptionally clean and had great amenities. The grill was so clean we think we may have been the first people to use it! The views were amazing and we enjoyed breakfast every morning on the beautiful porch. The house is in a very peaceful and private location. The owners were wonderful to work with and we would recommend this house whole-heartedly to our family and friends. We look forward to returning for another stay!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My two daughters and I stayed at Pine Cone Villa last week and had a wonderful time! The home is nicely decorated and super clean. My daughter has been to St. John in the past and had trouble with ants where she stayed, and told me to expect that, but we didn't see any! We loved eating breakfast on the back deck and enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. The kitchen had everything we needed. We used the beach chairs and beach towels every day at the beach. The AC felt great in the bedrooms at night, really cooled the rooms down fast. One night we had trouble with the water pressure being low, and the maintenance man came out to fix it, even though it was 9 pm. If I ever had a question to ask Catherine, she always got back with me that day with an answer. The DVD player was really nice with surround sound, so we rented a couple movies from the rental place by Starfish Market. It was great to watch Pride and Prejudice with the night breeze blowing in the windows. Thanks Catherine for a great stay!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our week @ Catherine & Leo's Pine Cone Drive. It was very clean, comfortable & affordable & as a dad I instinctively observe how things are built: this place is very well maintained! Love the beam ceilings, stonework, how the deck & rails are perfectly built & painted. Love that after a hot summer day of fun, can sleep in air conditioned bedrooms! The DRIVE to this villa is so FUN! Thank you Catherine, we look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mr. Matey for these kind words; however, the pleasure was all ours. We make every effort to be sure that our guests are comfortable and relax. At Pine Cone Drive (PCD) we understand that PCD would cease to exist with our guests. Therefore, it behooves us go the extra mile for our guests. We thank you for taking very good care of the property. We look forward to having you and your family again in the near future.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice time at PCD. Everything was perfect - absolutely no complaints whatsoever. The house is very quiet, clean, and well-maintained. Perched high in the hills, the views from the large deck are amazing, and we loved the privacy. The location is still convenient to town and beaches (10 minutes to Cruz Bay). Catherine, the owner, was very friendly, extremely responsive to e-mail and phone queries, and even patiently waited while we made a quick supermarket run on our arrival day.
We enjoyed star gazing in the evening, the hot tub, and our 5-year old son loved the beach toys.
St. John is all about the beaches, especially on the North Shore - we loved Hawksnest (only 15-20 minutes drive. arrive in the morning before the crowds, and enjoy the beautiful reef snorkeling), Trunk Bay (arrive in the evening, after the crowds leave) and Maho (turtles!). Also highly recommend renting a dinghy for a half day from Cruz Bay to sample all the smaller quieter North Shore beaches or to visit the small cays for more snorkeling.
Highly recommended.
Thank you, Catherine!!

Owner's Response: Veronika,

It was a pleasure meeting you & your husband, and your handsome bright-eye little boy. One glance at him tells you he is a joy. I am so glad that all your needs were met at the house; and that you enjoyed the islands. I sure do hope you will come again; and also tell your friends of PCD. Thanks, Catherine
