Calypso Cove - Fish Bay
3 Bedrooms | 2.0 Baths
Nestled by the water's edge, this delightful 3-bedroom, 2-bath home sits less than thirty feet from the sea - the sights and sounds of the ocean can be enjoyed from almost every room in the home. Calypso Cove is a whimsical home, artfully decorated with gingerbread and pastel hues inside and out.
The great room houses a beautiful new kitchen, as well as warm and welcoming seating areas for dining and for lounging. French doors flow from this space onto a covered and screened gallery, where you can sit and enjoy the ever-changing seascape outside your door.
The air conditioned master bedroom offers a colorful retreat, where you can watch the sun rise over the bay from your queen sized bed. The guest area is on the lower level and has both a queen and twin bedroom. The two guest rooms share the second bath, and a comfortable sitting room with cable TV.
A plunge pool offers freshwater fun right by the sea, and sits amongst tropical blooms of every shape and color, from ginger and jasmine to banana, papaya and mango. The entire home is surrounded by lush palms and abundant tropical foliage.
Calypso cove sits on the rocky coast of pristine Fish Bay, much of which is a nature conservancy. Hunt for conch shells, enjoy kayaking, or just watch the sea life from the spacious screened gallery. Whether for a honeymoon or a family vacation, Calypso Cove is the stuff Caribbean are made of… the best of life on St. John at a great price.

Overall our stay at Calypso Cove was great. Our arrival on the island went much more smoothly than expected. We appreciated Destination St. John meeting us there, helping us with luggage and getting us to our car rental quickly. When we arrived to the house the air conditioners were already on as well as the wonderful basket of deli food. The Destination St. John rep explained the island to us, gave us recommendations and made sure we felt comfortable before leaving us. Overall the house was nice. We loved having the pool and the beach chairs and beach towels were great for venturing to the beaches. The kitchen was great and well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. We especially loved the outdoor gas grill! We also very much appreciated that there was wireless internet at the house. Given that we can never quite fully leave our home life behind this was essential for getting email and staying in contact with family. Overall we had a great stay. The house gave us exactly what we were looking for, a week of easy relaxation. The house was the prefect distance from town to make it secluded but also convenient. I would definitely recommend this house to others visiting St. John.
We loved this property. My wife and I have 4 kids and the house, amenities, location, proximity to town, and price were beyond our expectations. It came with everything you would need including internet that worked great (for kids' homework assignments), beach chairs and towels, a cooler to travel for the day, and hot water that never ran out, Destination St. John responded to our very few needs in an extremely timely manner. We would recommend this property to any friends looking for a bit of seclusion (but just the right distance from town and access to the middle road across the top of the island).
We arrived after the holidays for wind down time. Calypso was perfect. The water is literally 50 feet from the bedroom. The master bedroom and the living space are on upper level to take advantage of views and breeze. The sound of the surf was wonderful white noise all the time. The beach is definitely not swimmable easily, there are lots of big rocks and its really shallow. But there are sea kayaks there and we enjoyed exploring the bay and nearby beach at Reef Bay. The kitchen and bath upstairs seem brand new, and had everything we needed to cook the few meals we ate at home. The pool is small, but still great for a dip after the beach, or our occasional "lazy day". The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are on the lower floor, and their are outside steps, so you should be aware with small children. But our teens loved having their own space and privacy, so it was perfect for us. The decor is beachside cottage, as it should be, and was very attractive.
House is about 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay to restaurants and the beaches are close as well. Our kids enjoyed exploring Fish Bay and returning with conch shells found on the beach and all kinds of treasure. Destination St John was great to work with, met us at the dock and responded immediately to minor plumbing issue we had.
All in all it was a perfect week, would definitely return, with or without the kids!
Nice house; but many people coming down the driveway on a daily basis. It was not as private as I had hoped. Bay is not a good place to snorkel, rocky and shallow. Refrig has a smell and even the ice cubes tasted bad. I did like the house and location. Just wish it was more private.
