Upper Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Located high above Coral Bay in the popular community of Upper Carolina, Satinwood is truly a 'one-of-a-kind' vacation home for visitors wanting to get away from the crowds while being eco-friendly! This unique home is completely energy self-sufficient and is truly an environmentally friendly house because of its 'off the power grid' construction and use of advanced Clivas Multrum waterless composting toilets . The waterless composting toilets use no chemicals and have no polluting discharge and they can save an average of 18,500 gallons of water per year. The home does not have any connection to the electric utility on St. John, and instead utilizes a system consisting of solar panels, storage batteries, DC to AC Inverters and a back-up diesel generator to insure reliable and earth-friendly energy at all times day or night! With all of its conservation oriented design, Satinwood provides discriminating guests with all of the conveniences and comforts expected in a deluxe private vacation accommodation on St. John while ensuring an environmentally friendly footprint on our beautiful island.

Guests arriving at Satinwood will be greeted by the inviting, sculpted swimming pool and fabulous surrounding deck complete with lounge chairs for sunning and a six person table with umbrella for alfresco dining - all arranged against the background of the awe-inspiring views to the East. The main house features a great room complete with comfortable furniture and an 'entertainment wall' consisting of a flat screen HD TV with cable TV connection, DVD player, CD player, stereo audio system, books, puzzles and games. The fully equipped kitchen is complete with energy efficient appliances and all the necessary items to prepare snacks to full meals. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area with table and chairs with seating for eight. The large glass wall with sliding glass door leads from the main living areas to a private balcony where guests will find a gas BBQ grill and a comfortable seating area to enjoy the fabulous views of Coral Bay and several of the British Virgin Islands.

Satinwood offers comfortable sleeping accommodations for up to ten guests. There are two master bedrooms located adjacent to the Great Room consisting of one king size bed and full en suite bathrooms with tiled, walk-in showers. Each master bedroom also has a loft sleeping area complete with two twin beds. There is a ceiling fan in each bedroom and floor/table fans located in the lofts. There is a complete studio apartment with a kitchenette, a king sized bedroom and en suite bath located on the lower level of the home. There is also a sitting area featuring comfortable chairs, a TV with DVD player, small audio system and ceiling fan. Satinwood is named for the large tree (which may be the last one on the island) growing out of the lower deck. Just as this rare species of tree has become unique to St. John so will be your vacation experience at Satinwood!

Eco-Friendly 3 Bedroom Vacation Home w/Pool overlooking Coral Bay!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Excellent location, great base for our incredible St. John vacation

  • 5 of 5

Satinwood was perfect for our family (two adults, two 19-year-olds, one 7-year-old). We loved the location high above Coral Bay -- stunning views, quiet, remote, 20-some minutes to most beaches, far away from the crowds. Our little one slept in the loft, and my wife and I started each day with a cool dip in the pool at 6:30. There's no A/C, but the house lets the high cool breezes flow through, and with the ceiling fans in the bedroom, we were comfortable, even in a heat wave, listening to the chorusing frogs through the open windows at night. And watching the big storm over Coral Bay at night was fantastic.

The house is well-worn with standard vacation-home decor (don't think luxury appointments). But it's properly maintained and very comfortable. The property manager met us at the ferry dock and drove with us to the house and got us all set up, and they were very responsive during our stay.

We want to come back!
