Bordeaux Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath with Ocean Views, Private Pool

We are excited for Summer 2014! We are in the works of some updates on the Sea Breeze house. Major updates and repainting. Can't wait to share photos with you soon! We are ready to go for Summer 2014!

Located at the top of Bordeaux Mountain, in a beautiful lush tropical setting, Sea Breeze is a very private home offering stunning views of Coral Bay Harbor and the British Virgin Islands. It has high vaulted ceilings and an open kitchen and living room layout perfect for entertaining families.

Sliding glass doors from the living room lead to the private deck with hot tub, seating area and lounge chairs.

On the main level there are two bedrooms, and then a loft bedroom accessed by a ladder. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and also has access to the deck through sliding glass doors, with ocean views. The other bedroom is furnished with two twin beds and views of the gardens surrounding the property. The loft bedroom also has two twin beds and is perfect for accommodating older children.

Downstairs there is private pool with surrounding deck, perfect for enjoying the sea breezes and ocean views. On the pool level there is another bedroom with a queen sized bed and private bathroom with shower.

The house can accommodate up to 8 people, with four bedrooms (one is a loft with lower ceilings), two full bathrooms and an outdoor shower.

The house is surrounded by a yard with several sitting areas, and then bordered with jungle like foliage that gives you complete privacy.

Tropical trade winds keep the house cool on the mountain top. It is just a short drive (about 5 min) to the popular Reef Bay Trail hike where you can go see the Petroglyphs of St. John.

Roughly equidistant from both Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, the two 'town' areas, the house is centrally located. The world famous Trunk Bay beach is about a 15 minute drive, and the house has beach towels, toys and a cooler perfect for a day at the beach.

VIEWWATCHER

  • 4 of 5
The view was outstanding! Pictures don't capture the experience fully. We enjoyed the house and found everything we needed for a wonderful week. We were met and led to the property. Everything was clean and well supplied. The location was great for visiting all parts of the island. Four wheel drive was really good! We hope to return and soak up the view again. Some of our favorites: smoothies from the top of Bordeaux Mountain, Miss Lucy's, and Driftwood Dave's.

DISAPPOINTING

  • 2 of 5
Lovely setting but this is an older house that is a bit worn. That would not have bothered us except that it clearly had not been cleaned prior to our arrival: food waste bagged in the refrigerator, gobs of hair in the shower drain, dirty towels in the bathroom, rugs and floors that appear not to have been washed for a very long time. It is the only island house (and we have been to many) that we would not recommend.

NOT EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE EXPECTING

  • 2 of 5
The biggest shock came when we pulled onto a rocky, unpaved road filled with potholes that were full of rain water. We were looking for the home. My children and husband were laughing out loud, saying that it was impossible that our house would be on such a road, it was. I thought we would have a flat tire everyday that we drove on it........the house was pretty dirty. I was afaraid to walk around barefoot. The lower level bathroom had no towels, no soap. Our adult friend came upstairs soaking wet, asking for a towel. It was embarrassing. The hot tub was so scalding hot one day, that no one could go in it. We had to unplug it and wait for the next day. Finally, the wifi was out for about four days. My kids did not like that at all. The weather was very rainy and windy, which I was told, was typical for the top of the mountain location. I was not aware of that at all. So all in all, I would say it was pretty disapponting. We have been to Saint John about ten or more times in the past 20 years, so we were not strangers to the island.

BEAUTIFUL EVEN IN A TROPICAL DEPRESSION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I chose to spend our 40th anniversary on top of Bordeaux Mountain in the Sea Breeze villa. We were fortunate to choose this villa with its striking views looking over the Sir Frances Drake Passage through the British Virgin Islands because our trip was somewhat hindered by a tropical depression that sat on top of us for 4 days, eventually turning into hurricane Gabriella. Even in the storms, the villa was delightful. Although in need of some paint and a little updating, we loved it. We own two villas in the Dominican Republic and laughed at some of the comments in the guest book about problems with mosquitos and bugs. Come on, this is in the middle of a rain forest in the Caribbean, get real. We were thrilled with the lack of mosquitos and other creepy-crawlies. The pool was great sitting on a beautiful deck stuck out over the tree tops and a wonderful hot tub sitting on the deck overlooking the islands. The kitchen was adequate and large. There would have been plenty of room for us to have brought along some of the kids and grand kids as well. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Just as a note, even with all the storms, we never lost power or internet service. I wish I could say that about our house in Tennessee. We will definitely plan another trip to Sea Breeze.

THE PERFECT HOME IN THE PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
It is our first day back to reality and already we are missing the Island and the house, which was perfect! The house is everything it says it is and just as it is pictured, no surprises. It has everything you can possible need or want right down to band aids. The house is centrally located between Cruz Bay and Coral Bay which was great. Right in the middle of all the beaches, which we went to a different one everyday. Snorkeling was great, I recommend taking a day trip to the BVI. The house has no A/C, but as we found out, we never needed A/C once! The breezes are incredible! Getting to the house was not a problem, great landmarks getting up to the mountain (shopping and restaurant right at the bottom of mountain). Small road / drive way to house is not bad, and believe me, we have had some rough drives getting to our homes. It was a pure pleasure to deal with Carrie Cook and Jay, who both were always there to answer questions! We will be back next year and God willing, rent the house again! Thank you to the owner and caretakers, you do a great job!
We started a new tradition, we left a large shell in the deck with our name and date, hope the next renters will follow suite! It would be nice to see how many shells are there when we get back! Thanks again for allowing us to rent your wonderful home and experience the incredible views and breezes after soaking in the beauty of the island!
Favorite restaurants: MISS LUCY'S (Sunday Brunch is unbelievable as well as all other menu's), Skinny Legs, and PICKLES IN PARADISE (great deli for lunch and breakfast) and the SMOOTHIE Stand on the side of road! Lots of good restaurants in Cruz Bay, our favorite, JAKE'S Place has a GREAT breakfast as well as the rest of the menu. The BEACH BAR restaurant to the right of the Ferry in Cruz Bay has fantastic food too and it's a fun bar.

PERFECT FOR WHAT WE WERE NEEDING

  • 5 of 5
Even though this was an older house, the benefits outweighed the costs. The pool and hot tub were used multiple times a day by our kids and ourselves -- the pool was too chilly for adults and the railings are not well constructed/maintained for little ones, so that was a constant worry, but we felt like the extra attention to safety was manageable. The bedrooms fit our needs, although the ladder/loft was a bit nerve racking (getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom was not easy for a young child!). It was clean and well stocked, the yard was beautiful, the view amazing - close to the top of the mountain, so a little far from bays but well worth it. We would go back to this house!
