About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6, easterly views of St. John & BVIs

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.

About Susan and Bob Voigt

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

Why Susan and Bob Voigt chose St John

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.

What makes this villa unique

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. Recently paved sections have greatly improved the road through the neighborhood.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this villa. The photos do not show how beautiful it really is. We could not have found a more perfect vacation home. Coral Bay and its people are wonderful as well. We truly enjoyed exploring the island and having this home to come back to. We were glad we had a Jeep with good clearance to get up there, but the it was sure worth the driving adventure. Thank you for sharing your home.

Pleasantly surprised......the house was nicer then the pictures,

  • 5 of 5

The layout was perfect for 3 couples each having their own bedroom, bathroom and balcony. Plenty of room for privacy or socializing in the main living area.The house was well kept, and very very clean. The views were very nice overlooking the sea and mountains. The hot tub was great with lots of jets. Needed nothing the house was stocked, even had extra snorkel, beach chairs. Would recommend this place.

A very comfortable, well-stocked place with a great view and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in February 2017. The villa is well-stocked and very comfortable, truly a home away from home. Everything is in place and ready in the kitchen and bathrooms, also it was great that we had access to beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc. It is very kind of owners to provide those to all of us. The house does show normal signs of wear and tear, but these are very minor. The carerakers Sally and Buck were very responsive and available when needed (we only had one minor problem when we were there). Everything is very functional, operational and in good shape. The pool is a little cold, but refreshing on a hot day. The hot tub is adequate. There is no AC, as stated, due to trade winds. The house does get a little hot around 11 and through 3.30 or so when the front (which faces East) is in the shade. It becomes nice and cool then. We usually left around 10.30 and were back by 4-6, so didn't have a problem with this. The road to the house did not bother us - it was a little bumpy, but we had a 4WD and sometimes went up and down several times. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners as well.

Our second year staying at this house! We love it, perfect for our family. The views are spectacular! The pool is so nice for our kids to play, and the house has everything we need. I could spend hours looking at the views from the deck.
