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.

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

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.

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.

On our 5th trip to St John my wife and I found a very special place at the Pine Cone Drive Villa. Everything was exactly like the description and the pictures of the villa. Evening sunsets and early morning sunrises on the the valley will always remain special to us. Our week in St John was exceptional as usual. Weather was perfect and the north shore beaches were amazing.

We were met right off the ferry and escorted to Pine Cone Drive. The cottage was clean, spacious, quiet, and secluded! If we return to St John, we will definitely be staying here again!

We spent 2 weeks at Pine Cone. We have been annual visitors to St John for 20 years and always rent houses for our stays. The house was clean and well-maintained. The owner was friendly and helpful. We had a minor maintenance issue that needed to be dealt with and it was handled promptly.

Beautiful Home Away from Home

Catherine met us at the ferry, despite the delay in our flight, made sure we got our rental jeep, accompanied us grocery shopping, and led us to the house-what service! The house was very clean, comfortable, and bigger than it looks in the photos. We appreciated the beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding mountains from the deck, where we ate breakfast every morning, while the stars and nighttime sounds relaxed us during dinner. We had several rainbow sightings from the deck after sunshowers, including a double rainbow. We used the beach items-towels, chairs, and toys on our daily trips to various beaches, the dryer was handy for towels that didn't dry overnight, and the kitchen saved us time and $$, allowing us to prepare breakfasts at home and picnic lunches to take to the beach. The location allowed us to visit Maho/Cinnamon/Hawksnest/Leinster/Salt Pond with relative ease, and the quiet of the neighborhood was peaceful. Don't miss: snorkeling with the turtles at Maho and Leinster, beautiful sand at Hawksnest, the conch fritters at Miss Lucy's (Coral Bay), the fish sandwich at Driftwood David's (Cruz Bay), shrimp Verazcruz at Sun Dog Cafe (Mongoose Junction, Cruz Bay), good value at FishTrap (Cruz).

Owner's Response: It was wonderful meeting the Meyers family. Helping them was not a burden but a pleasure, because I know that most of the times families have to scarify a lot to come on vacation. They were very pleasant and easy to speak with; they also had a great sense of humor in terms of what they paid for organic peanut butter.

Thank you Meyers family for choosing to spend your vacation with us on St. John and specially at Pine Cone Drive (PCD). I hope you will return again in the near future.

The perfect place to get away from it all

We had a fabulous time at PCD!
The property is beautifully located in a very quite part of the Fish Bay. The house is very clean and well equipped. We spend most of our time on a very large, private deck that offers amazing views. The owners, Catherine and Leo, are super nice and are easily available when needed. We rented a standard car (not SUV or AWD) and were able to visit most of the beaches (the roads are very steep and get very slippery when wet though and had to use lower gear a lot). Those looking for a super relaxing getaway... look no further! Will definitely recommend it to all our friends and family!
