Whale Watch is a lovely new home on the East End of St. John with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. At certain times of the year whales are migrating and you may possibly see humpback whales from the deck.
Beautiful views and waves lapping on the beach all contribute to your enjoyment in a private relaxed setting. Whale Watch is located on a private road ending a short distance away. It is a very quiet area with very light traffic. There is a parking area off the
street level with the front entrance.
You enter Whale Watch into a bright, cheery, well appointed great room including a sitting area with expansive views of the Sea and a dining area comfortably seating four people. The kitchen adjoins the great room, offering the same great views. In addition to the dining area, there is a breakfast counter for 2 between the kitchen and great room. The large master bedroom and bath is on the same level and offers the same ocean views. A beautiful stone outdoor shower adjoins the master bedroom. A large covered porch is a delightful place to sit and relax and keep an eye out for whales..
Whale Watch is close to several East End beaches. Hansen Bay offers a great beach with terrific snorkeling out and around Pelican Rock. Haulover, another great snorkeling area, is a short drive away. It is about a 12 minute drive to Coral Bay with restaurants, groceries, and rental of snorkel gear. The East End has some of the best snorkeling on the island and is more remote and thus more casual and laid back. We have two complimentary kayaks available to you during your stay, located at the beach for easy access to the water. This area is a wonderful area for kayaking in Round Bay and Hurricane Hole.
SPECIAL FOR WHALE WATCH GUESTS who visit for a minimum of 7 nights - We are offering a complimentary 3 hour tour during your stay on SERENASEA, a 30 ft classic motor yacht. Serenasea can take up to 6 people and is a great way to visit Hurricane Hole where there is terrific snorkeling in the mangroves. We also visit Flanagan Island, between the East End of St. John and Norman Island in the BVIs, if weather permits. We make 2 snorkel stops and offer drinks and a snack.
No Smoking, Please. No Pets
I sailed to the Caribbean in the mid 90's on my 40ft. sail boat - WATER MUSIC. After sailing down island and visiting all of the Windward and Leeward Islands I returned to St. John. I built Whale Watch in 2004 and love the casual living on the East End. I have many friends on St. John and enjoy meeting the guests who stay at my home.
I chose this location on the East End of St. John because it offers a continuous fresh trade wind breeze out of the SE. I also enjoy watching the sailboats and cruise ships pass by. It brings back many fond memories of cruising on my boat.
Whale Watch is located on the East End of St. John, about a 10 minute ride from Coral Bay. The East End is very quiet, and casual living. There is excellent swimming and snorkeling within walking distance. The ocean view from the deck is breathtaking, especially when the whales are migrating. We have kayaks for exploring Round Bay and Hurricane Hole. North Shore beaches are about a 20 minute ride.
