High above sleepy Coral Bay on Bordeaux Mountain sits Skyflower, named after the beautiful blue Plumbago which grows in profusion on the property. This newly built 2 BR/3 BA home is in the West Indian style with Great House and bedrooms in separate buildings. Property managed locally by James M. Miller Property Management.
The panoramic views from all rooms are spectacular, overlooking the British Virgins, St Johns East End, and Coral Bay. Skyflower provides an enchanting Caribbean experience and the ultimate in privacy for honeymooners, two couples, or a small family.
The Great House provides dining and entertainment space and a separate, two story building houses two equal size bedrooms and baths. 1500 square feet of deck unites the buildings into one indoor/outdoor living space.
The kitchen is a fully equipped 'cooks' kitchen with stainless appliances, marble countertops, quality utensils, and good lighting. Dining is inside on an antique family dining table or 'al fresco' under the covered deck.
Separation of the bedrooms from the Great House and from one another assures privacy for all guests. On the same level as the Great House the upper bedroom has a king sized, hand carved mahogany four poster bed with comfortable bath with a door to the private outdoor shower.
The downstairs bedroom with adjoining living area is accessed by an outside staircase. This bedroom has 2 twin beds which can be joined to make up as a king. A lovely bath opens unto a tiled garden shower.
We just came back from 7 wonderful days at Skyflower. Wow, this is such an amazing place. The views are breath-taking from the top of Bordeaux mountain. The pictures do not do it justice. We spent our mornings drinking coffee and taking in the warm summer sun and the cool ocean breeze. The location is perfect for taking in the sights and sounds in the middle and eastern end of St. John. The accommodations are excellent and the size of the apartment was more than enough for my wife and I. Everything in the suite is in excellent condition, and there's a full kitchen and modern grill if you're inclined to cook. Having spent the previous week at a villa just outside of St. Cruz I can assure you that Skyflower provides the best bang for the buck available on the Island. Bill and Jan are wonderful, and invited us up for drinks and appetizers one evening and we now consider them friends. Can't recommend this place strongly enough!
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at this magnificent villa for 9 days and it was not nearly long enough...we could have moved right in ;) I would never get sick of the most amazing view right from the porch and from every window in the house. We had another couple join us for part of the time and this villa offered outstanding privacy and space. Everything was clean and we had all we needed. They had wonderful chairs, towels and coolers to use for our days at the beach. We are now spoiled and do not want to stay anywhere else on St. John. Do not hesitate to book this place if you can find available dates. Thank you for opening your magical home to us! We will never forget our time at SkyFlower and the best island out there-St. John!!!!
My wife and I stayed at Skyflower for our Honeymoon and had an amazing time. The view looks the same as in the pictures but the real experience is breathtaking. Getting used to no air conditioning on the island was an adventure but the villa is at the top of the mountain where the wind cools.
First off, words cannot describe how beautiful this home is, not the mention the views and the wonderful constant breeze.
This was mine and my fiance's second trip to St. John, and we brought my grandparents along with us this time.
When only being able to see the vacation rentals online and only being able to go by people's reviews, it can be scary to not know what you're walking into, this was the issue with our first trip, unfortunately (another rental, NOT Skyflower).
This trip was amazing and we're so happy that we found this gem where we were able to share it with our family.
Back to the house... Like I said, amazing! We used the hot tub twice, but were otherwise at the beaches. At night it was very relaxing.
The bedrooms were large and had a lot of storage space. Absolutely fell in love with the outdoor showers.
The constant breeze was welcomed at all times of the day and night, we didn't have to close the sliding doors once, except when it would occasionally rain at night.
The living room, kitchen and dining room were perfectly sized, and we loved that the bedroom (top level) was split form the hours.
The man who met us to show us the property was very informative and gave us his contact information if we ever had any questions.
We were surprised that there were laundry facilities, as there aren't many rentals with them.
The house was completely clean and looks to be very well cared for. We especially loved reading the entries of other guests who have stayed there.
There was also binders including places to visit, dining and beaches.
We even got little iguana visitors during the day.
From our first stay on St. John, I was scared that bugs would get in the house at night, because of our last experience at another rental, but this did not happen, the doors and screen doors closed tightly to prevent this, which made me very happy as well as my fiance as he did not have to be up all night fighting off the beetles.
If I had only one superlative to describe Skyflower and our 10 days there over the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday week it would be “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”!! Words just cannot describe the setting and view from Skyflower and as several other reviewers have said the pictures do not do that view or the home justice! It really is that spectacular! Marc Miller, Skyflower’s property manager, was so very easy to work with, answering any questions/concerns we had, keeping in contact and was just a super nice guy to meet and deal with and we plan to book with him every opportunity from now on. After we arrived and picked up our jeep from Bougainvillea Jeep (btw - the best) Marc met us in Coral Bay and took us up, up, up to Skyflower. “WOW” “WOW” “WOW” the only words I could utter as we stepped through the front door and got our first glimpse of Skyflower and all of Coral Bay and the BVIs from aloft. I texted my daughter pictures of the view and she said it looked like we were flying/hovering over the island! We have been coming to St. John since 2001 and Skyflower is the nicest and best furnished home of the multiple houses we have stayed in! The house is immaculately kept, with very comfortable furnishings, fantastic stocked cook’s kitchen with every gadget and utensil to prepare any meal and very nice dishes and glassware. There are multiple ceiling fans throughout and in our opinion, absolutely no need for a/c as the breezes up there provide constant bugfree cooling, so much so, that I had to put a sweat shirt on at night. Every aspect of this house was so very thoughtfully and tastefully set out - from artwork on the walls to the carved door frames throughout the house to books with tips for enjoying Skyflower and St John and even binoculars to view a huge yacht moored in Hansen Bay! The hottub provided nights of relaxed star gazing and watching the moonrise. The mornings greeted us with beautiful sunrises from our bed and from the decks. We were lucky to literally have a bird’s eye view of the annual Coral Bay Thanksgiving regatta and enjoyed watching the boats race each other. We would always look forward to coming back to Skyflower from whatever the day's activity was and walking out to that “WOW” view again and again! We look forward to staying at Skyflower again and would HIGHLY recommend Skyflower to anyone who is looking for an exceptional home, the ultimate in comfort and relaxation and - yes - the most spectacular views on St. John!!
My wife and I have been coming to St. John for 15 years and have stayed in a variety of houses. Skyflower is by far the best we have stayed in to date. The quality of the house and furnishings is only surpassed by the location on Bordeaux Mountain. The views are second to none on the island. The trade winds provide cool evenings, bug free. Easy trip up from Coral Bay and easy to go down the backside of the mountain in to Cruz Bay. We can't wait to stay there again.
