Why Kathy Reddington & Frank Borzenski chose Estate Ben Runnels Gut
The view is truly spectacular from everywhere in the house. We love the privacy and quiet of Seawing, yet it is close to beaches, hiking trails and very good restaurants. The paved driveway and road leading to the house is an added benefit.
What makes this Villa unique
An attractive feature is the airiness and openness of the house. The intimacy of the rear tropical garden with the hot tub, natural gorge and waterfall after heavy rains is something we have never experienced in any villa.

Seawing was as advertised! The villa was in great condition! We loved the amenities!
We enjoyed our stay at Seawing! First of all, Dena, our greeter, was great. She had good information for us and was easy to talk to. She was also accessible by texting when we had questions.
Seawing was great for my husband and myself. We enjoyed sleeping In the loft and seeing the sun rise every morning. We also enjoyed the porches and the hot tub. It was nice to come home after a day of exploring St. John and be able to get in the hot tub and relax a little more! The kitchen was just perfect for what we needed. The outdoor shower took a little getting used to but we loved it. It was very private. We loved staying at Seawing and hope to bring our family with us next time we come!
Very private villa in a great location!
We have stayed in quite a few villas on St. John and this is the one we want to come back to next time. The views, location and privacy were high on our list and Seawing exceeded our expectations. It has the perfect island feel! The landscaping and outdoor areas, of which there are many, are all beautiful and relaxing. In fact, this is the first time we were so comfortable that we only left the villa for food for half of the days during our stay. Seawing survived the hurricanes with flying colors! St. John itself is recovering quite well and actually looked a lot better than we were expecting. The people we talked to that live there were very welcoming to guests coming back and want everyone to know that they are definitely ready for more visitors! We consider ourselves very lucky that we could go back to our home away from home to see how things are coming along firsthand. Thank you so much, Dena, for a smooth welcoming and a great chat on the villa and how St. John is coming along! Thank you, Kathy and Frank, for sharing the most perfect villa on the east end of St. John (and the extra day we weren’t originally planning on)!
Perfect for our anniversary
Seawing is phenomenal. Very well designed and appointed, very private, much more stocked than we expected, everything is nice and comfortable. Yes the driveway is steep but no big deal. You can do it. As others have noted, you're way too far from the cab routes here so rent a jeep, keep left, and enjoy the adventure.
The bed is upstairs and faces the water so you open your eyes every day to sunrise, sea breeze, and the view shown in the pictures. It's tough to describe how cool that is. The hot tub really is great in the evenings when the breeze cools things down, and the shower is definitely awesome.
Frank and Kathy (owners) are super easy to work with, very pleasant and helpful (they went to the trouble of leaving a cryptic voicemail for me so as not to give away the surprise trip I was planning for our anniversary). Dena manages the property and meets you at the ferry doc to take you across the island to the property. She is fantastic, too. We needed a hand with something and that morning she came by while we were out, fixed the issue, and left a note that she had stopped by. They all provided great recommendations for our time there and were extremely responsive.
Finally, Coral Bay is THE place to be on STJ. Seawing is perfectly situated there to enjoy the surreal peace and quiet, but with very close access to Aqua Bistro, Indigo Grill, Skinny Legs, and Dolphin Market -- great places, all. Short drive to the beaches, too.
Thanks Frank, Kathy, and Dena for making our anniversary trip so easy and enjoyable!
This was our second stay at Seawing. We've already signed up for next year. Nuff said.
A little piece of Heaven in St John!
My husband and I just returned from spending an amazing week in beautiful St John and we absolutely loved our stay at Seawing. Dena was so gracious to meet us near the ferry and drive us to the grocery store and then to the villa whic is on the other side of the island from the ferry. I highly recommend staying in Coral Bay. It is more private, quiet, and away from the chaos is Cruz Bay...yet not too far. The drive back and forth is beautiful and fun to do. It allows you to see the island in a different way, get a feel of locals, and this side is prettier in my opinion.
If you are looking for the perfect place for a romantic getaway to reconnect, relax, and rejuvinate you must stay here at Seawing. Every morning we awoke to a gorgeous sunrise that we could gaze at and admire from our comfortable bed. Windows from floor to ceiling overlooking fabulous ocean views and mountain settings. Not to mention the glorious sounds of birds and wildlife reminding us that we were far away in a private oasis all to ouselves. After our morning coffee and breakfast on one of the several balconies/patios with scenic views we would start off our day relaxing in the outdoor hot tub which overlooks the ocean to one side and is set in a mountain side with a lovely waterfall on the other (if you are lucky enough to come during rainy season water falls down the rocks as you are soaking in the serenity). We were blessed witnessing a rainbow across the ocean one day from out hot tub! Then, we would enjoy the awesome outdoor shower which is very private...it was amazing. The villa is spacious, laid out and designed very well, and is stocked with everything you need from kitchen items, to bath needs, even beach chairs/bags/etc. We opted for the AC and we were glad we did because it was hot when we visited. We just turned it off as we left during the day and turned it on when we returned at night. It worked very well and cooled the whole villa down comfortably and quickly. Yes, the driveway up to the villa is very steep and does required a 4W drive but that made it even more fun for us. We loved exploring the island in our jeep with all the steep twists and turns...finding hidden trails and fabulous private beaches. The hardest part was getting use to driving on the left side.
We truly loved every minute at Seawing and are grateful for our time there. We feel in love all over again. Hope to be back as soon as we can! Thank you to Kathy and Frank for sharing it!
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon 14 years ago. Seawing is a beautiful villa in a beautiful, private location. We had a great time and made many lasting memories here. It's the perfect romantic retreat for couples with room for older children on the lower floor. I hope to return here one day with my wonderful wife.
