Quiet Caribbean living in Estate Calabash Boom

Nestled on the southeastern shores of Saint John, overlooking the turquoise waters of Coral Bay and just 2 miles north of carefree swimming at the protected Salt Pond Bay, Estate Calabash Boom offers a taste of laid-back Caribbean living in a true tropical paradise. The area's postcard-perfect surroundings, home to charming Estate Calabash Boom vacation rentals and a world away from the island's busier spots, serve up sweeping views of the British Virgin Islands, breathtaking sunrises and easy access to the many wonders of the Virgin Islands National Park.

Things to do

Road trips and tours from Estate Calabash Boom

Covering more than half the island, the Virgin Islands National Park is Saint John's top attraction, and one that is on the doorstep of all Estate Calabash Boom vacation rentals. Safari tours are fantastic, but if you want the freedom to spend longer in specific spots, it's worth thinking about getting a rental car. Take a scenic drive through the park to Cruz Bay, the island's main town in the east, where a bustling bay is lined with al fresco dining spots and Mongoose Junction offers upscale shopping.

Activities

Get out on the water in Estate Calabash Boom

While there's no shortage of palm-fringed beaches to discover on Saint John, you'll be just as keen to enjoy the island's idyllic waters. Just minutes from Estate Calabash Boom, Coral Bay Harbor is the launch pad for a variety of cruises and excursions. You might head north to kayak alongside mangrove forests at Hurricane Hole or venture down to the island's rugged south shore, where Lameshur Bay boasts a pristine stretch of sand, 18th-century ruins and picturesque hiking trails. Along with catching sight of sea turtles and rays, snorkeling in the bay often involves swimming alongside colorful parrot fish and Caribbean lobsters.

Weather

Find your perfect season in Estate Calabash Boom

Temperatures here rarely fall beneath the low 70s and often reach the high 80s, so enjoying a spot of sunshine is rarely a problem. That said, demand for Estate Calabash Boom vacation rentals is often at its highest from December through March, when winter getaways deliver sunny days and breezy evenings, the latter the result of the island's so-called "Christmas Winds". For those looking for a great deal on their vacation home, rates for the island's rentals drop a little from April through June, before falling again to entice those who refuse to let hurricane season get in their way.
