The Secret Seashell is a brand new, 3-bedroom/3.5 bath masonry ocean front villa located in the Coral Bay area, on the pristine and remote peninsula of Fortsberg Estate. Listen to the waves on the rocky shore below as you lounge under the shade of the gazebo, by the infinity edge pool.
The thoughtful design of The Secret Seashell enables it to be rented as both a three-bedroom for six guests or, alternatively, as a one-bedroom villa for two, as the two bedrooms on the ground floor can be closed off. The two downstairs bedrooms have full private baths, flat screen televisions, small refridgerators, coffee makers and private ocean -view balconies. The master bedroom upstairs has a large outdoor shower connected to a private bath. With luxury linens, and every amenity, including beach chairs and coolers, The Secret Sea Shell is waiting to be discovered as the ideal vacation home.
The Great Room is designed with an open Caribbean-style floor plan, with a fully equipped and modern kitchen looking out into a gracious sitting area and the breathtaking private view beyond. The covered masonry balcony is a luxurious place to soak in the peaceful surroundings. The view is entirely private, with not another house in close proximity, surrounded by the pure elements of nature.
The special area of Estate Fortsberg, where this villa is located, is pristine and private, along a private road at the ocean's edge. It is graced by untouched shoreline, ideal for beach combing, and woods home to variety of wildlife including a great many birds. A corral along the country road leading to The Secret Sea Shell provides opportunities for horseback riding in the area. And yet, as private as this protected peninsula is, it is only a five-minute drive from the hamlet of Coral Bay with its eclectic good and affordable restaurants, shops and opportunities for watersports. The National Park, with its hiking trails and gorgeous beaches is also nearby. A more desirable situation cannot be found on the beautiful island of St. John.

We had a magnificent stay here at the Secret Seashell! Your home is gorgeous and the location is ideal. I can’t tell you what a great time we had. All the best!
The Secret Seashell is a stunning home and property. The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable to be in. We had everything we needed for a fantastic vacation. The views from all rooms, the porches and decks was astonishing. It's conveniently located yet secluded and private. We loved our time there and can't wait to go back.
I never could have imagined how beautiful this place really was until I got there! The Caribbean weather and attitude is just beautiful...hard to explain in words really. The views from this place were absolutely gorgeous. The privacy was perfect and we were still close enough to some of the local action too!
I feel great recommending this place to anybody. I know we will be going back as soon as we can!
The week we spent at the Secret Seashell was one of the most, if not the most, relaxing weeks I have ever had. It was our first time in the Caribbean. Landing in Saint Thomas, and driving through to the ferry dock, was very beautiful and pretty close to what I had envisioned. We took the very short ferry ride over to St. Johns and this is where paradise began! The drive to The Secret Seashell gives you a taste of what this little quiet island has to offer in picturesque beauty, and the feel of stepping back in time.
When we arrived at The Secret Seashell, I could not believe how incredible it really is! It looks great in the photos on-line, but nothing can capture the beauty of this place more than being there in person. I have never felt stress melt away like this before. The views are so incredible. The feel of seclusion is so peaceful. You only have to go literally steps away to step back in time. Next door are the remains of an old fort with still in place cannons. You can just stand up there and imagine what it was like 300 years ago. From the villa, you can sit poolside feeling the light Easterly winds, the sounds of the ocean waves crashing on shore, and you may hear or see some of the wild donkeys that meander around the island.
The people of the island are as polite as you will come by. If you want to get a good feel of locals mixed with vacationers, and one the best burgers you’ll eat, you have to stop at Skinny Legs. You will probably meet people from all over the world, and you won’t be able to resist a little shopping too. With in a day or two, you’ll feel like a local.
There are plenty of sight seeing things to do on the island, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The only downfall is that to do them, you have to leave The Secret Seashell. When your there sitting on the balcony or under the cabana next to the pool, you never want to leave. Never. If you want your world to slow down, St. Johns is the place you want to go & The Secret Seashell is the place you want to stay! This was the most relaxing week of my life. Thank you, to the owners for building paradise in paradise.
