|Minimum Stay||5 - 6 nights|
Brisas del Mar is located on the eastern side of St John overlooking Coral Bay, a 30 minute drive from Cruz Bay. The villa is situated just a 10 minute drive to groceries, shops, restaurants and bars in Coral Bay. Several beautiful national park beaches are a 15 to 25 minute drive.
Enjoy the beautiful sunrise and Caribbean sea breezes from this villa perched 300 feet above Coral Bay on the western hillside. This quaint harbor is filled with cruising sailboats from St John and other ports throughout the western hemisphere.
Brisas del Mar is primarily a one level villa with the pool and deck directly outside the sliding glass doors and a hot tub on the lower deck.
The great room affords expansive views of East End and the British Virgin Islands through two sets of screened sliding glass windows. All 3 bedrooms have sliding doors with similar east views. The house has tiled floors throughout, beamed and vaulted ceilings, and ceiling fans in every room. There is no air conditioning, since the south-easterly breezes are almost constant. The living area includes cable TV, wifi internet access, DVD, stereo with CD and cassette deck player, books, games, puzzles, telephones and tropical artwork.
There is seating for 3 diners at the casual bar, seating for 6 at the formal mahogany table and outdoor seating for 6 at the glass topped table on the deck.
The well equipped kitchen features mahogany cabinets and island, stainless refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemakers, espresso machine, toaster, blender, mixer, cookware and dinnerware.
Two en suite bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the villa on the main level to ensure maximum privacy. A spiral staircase leads to the third en suite bedroom with private balcony and spectacular sunrise vistas. Bed linens, towels and beach towels are provided.
An outdoor gas grill and laundry room with washer and dryer complete the 'at home in paradise' atmosphere. Ice chests in several sizes and beach chairs are available for island exploring.
Access to the villa is on an adventurous partially paved road which may be rough in places. Although the drive with curves and switch-backs is less than 1/2 mile, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.
After many vacations on St. John since 1968, we bought this beautiful villa with a fabulous view of Coral Bay and cooling breezes on the quiet side of the island. We extended the sun deck and added a lower deck and hot tub to make the villa even more attractive. It is a great retreat after a day at the beach to snorkel! Although we live in Virginia, we have a great couple nearby, Buck and Sally, taking care of our villa for us.
Susan and Bob Voigt purchased this villa in 2004
We have vacationed on several other Caribbean islands, but St. John is our favorite! The USVI National Park covers over two-thirds of the island and offers many protected beaches with great snorkeling. Our villa is central to south, east end and the north shore beaches.
The spectacular view, the comfortable layout, and well equipped kitchen make this villa a comfortable vacation home for families or up to 3 couples. The final half-mile drive up the hillside on a partially paved road provides a chance to experience St. John the way it was 25 years ago.
The reviews prior where all correct, and very helpful for me in picking this house. I will add for July you will have some amazing breezes, open all sliders& windows and you won't need a/c and it helps that this house is the last house on this road for privacy. You will not be disappointed, best part of this vacation was coming home to beautiful views and soaking in the hot tub after a long day of fun...We used take out from Oasis (inexpensive) and shopped at Dolphin market. Can't wait to go back, and thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home.
We were 2 couples in our late 50's that stayed at Brisas Del Mar. The renting process was easy. The owners were very attentive and a pleasure to work with. They responded timely to all our inquires. We used Wheatley Taxi Service & Tours from St Thomas airport to Red Hook ferry. We experienced comfortable tropical breezes at all times. We enjoyed the outdoor living space and the view, no matter what time of day, could not be any better. The house is very spacious and the bedrooms were comfortable with large en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we could possibly need. We picked up our meats at Calabash market in Coral Bay and they were of good quality and flavorful. The BBQ grill was in good shape and we used it a few times. We enjoyed dining out in Coral Bay at Skinny legs, Shipwreck Landing and Plantains. Pack light as the laundry facilities were in perfect working order and very handy to use. The care givers, Sally and Buck were prompt, courteous, very friendly and offered insight to local restaurants and beaches. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. This is a great place to stay and we look forward to a return trip.
Our recent visit to Coral Bay was by far our favorite vacation! The villa is clean, bright and has everything you need from beach towels and chairs to a fully stocked kitchen, linens and towels too! The washer/dryer were a great addition. You can really pack light! We traveled with 4 adults, 2 children (ages 10,7) and a 5 month old baby and had plenty of space.
My kids enjoyed the rough ride up to the villa! And of course going down was an adventure too! You need a 4 wheel drive. We rented jeeps and they did fine!
The villa is so peaceful and the views are spectacular. Sunrises and sunsets are fabulous.
My kids loved the pool and were in it all the time! The hot tub was nice as well!
We loved the neighbors little puppies. They are very sweet and greeted us when we returned home each day. Made us feel like we were home.
The owners are wonderful! Very helpful and will get right back to you with any questions you have. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!!
My favorite part of our trip was visiting with my Aunt Sally and Uncle Buck. They will take care of all your needs!! 💜🌺☀️
Fantastic..... is the best way I can express our experience on the island and staying in this villa. This was our second time on the island staying in Coral Bay. We love how tranquil it is. I setup this trip up as a surprise for my wife as part of her 40th bday and our anniversary. Simply put we loved the villa! Susan and Bob where great and easy to work with and answered any questions I had quickly. The only reason I could not rate this villa 5 stars was due to the road that other people mentioned in there reviews. However Susan and Bob are completely open about it I knew it prior to renting. After the first day we got used to it and it really did not hinder our experience. The best way we dealt with it was to pack up everything in the morning that you would need during the day and night and not return until the day was over which worked perfect for us. Thank you Susan and Bob we will certainly keep your house in mind when we get back to the island within the next year.
Having been to St. John before, we wanted to return with your children ages 9, 11, and 14. The home was perfect for our family of five. The road up to the villa is quite steep and unpaved, so you will need a jeep but that is true for much of the island and in particular this side by Coral Bay. You will not be disappointed when you arrive at the house! The views are spectacular and the home is beautiful! After long days at the various beautiful beaches St. John has to offer, the kids loved the pool for afternoon swims. We all enjoyed late night star-gazing from the hot tub. The owners and caretakers were extremely responsive and our interaction with them was very positive. We hope to some day return to St. John and would definitely stay here again!
We had an amazing vacation at Brisas del Mar. The house was perfect for our family. We stayed for two weeks. Spectacular views, constant breezes, short jeep ride to Coral Bay and beaches. We loved this beautiful house! It is so tranquil and peaceful. The road was kind of fun to drive. Ten minutes to town. This area had lots of goats, lizards, birds. Several mornings an iguana was in the trees by the deck. The pool was perfect size and depth for my kids to play in. We look forward to retuning another year!!
At the dead end of a quiet residential neighborhood. Cocolobo shops and Love City MiniMart less than 10 minutes away. Many great beaches in the national park for snorkeling and swimming within 20 minute drive. Famous Trunk Bay beach with underwater snorkel trail, life guards, and changing facilities less than 25 minute drive.
