About the property

OCEAN BREEZES-OCEAN VIEWS- A true taste of what ST John has to offer. This airy 2-bedroom villa is very private and is located on a 2-acre lot in a quiet residential area. The villa features cathedral ceilings, many windows, and has lots of character. In the true island fashion, it has an outdoor shower constructed of native stone overlooking a waterfall (during the rainy season) with natural rock formations. The property is professionally landscaped with many varieties of flowering plants. It is located in the Pebble Beach-Saunders Gut region of Coral Bay on the mountainside overlooking the spectacular Sir Francis Drake Channel, BVIs and east end of St John. Enjoy morning sunrise and evening moon-rise under a star filled sky from either of two decks: one wrap around off of the living-dining area and another off of the loft master bedroom. Enjoy your morning coffee in the rear garden containing an outdoor dining area with gas grill. It is truly a unique vacation setting. Equipped with 2 flat screen TVs, WI-Fi, phone, ceiling fans, beach chairs, coolers and beach towels. Air conditioning for the entire home is available at an additional cost. A short drive to white sand beaches, national park hiking trails, and Coral Bay restaurants. Paved road and paved driveway access. A hot tub is located adjacent to the rear garden overlooking rock formations with a spectacular water view yet maintaining your complete privacy. A new mahogany kitchen and bath with glass tile back splash, new appliances and Corian counter-tops were added November 2012. The kitchen is very well equipped.

The lower queen bedroom suite has a completely renovated bathroom with new custom built mahogany vanity and fixtures. There is a 26 inch flat screen with Internet TV for Netflix , Pandora, etc . The lower suite has its own outdoor patio with an additional outdoor shower.

The suite is available for parties over 2 persons for the entire rental period of the main villa at an additional cost of $50.00 per night per person up to a total party of 4 for the entire villa. The suite comes with A/C at no additional charge. Due to the privacy of the lower bedroom, this villa is perfect for 2 couples wishing their privacy. The villa is not suitable for children.

About Kathy Reddington & Frank Borzenski

We purchased this property in 2012 after vacationing here for the last 25 years. We love ST John and especially the Coral Bay area.

Kathy Reddington & Frank Borzenski purchased this villa in 2012

Why Kathy Reddington & Frank Borzenski chose Coral Bay

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.

A little piece of Heaven in St John!

  • 5 of 5

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 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!

Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

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.

Home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Seawing is the perfect place for a couple. It is absolutely beautiful, clean, and quiet. It has the most spectacular views of Coral Bay (best place to stay in St. John, by the way). The owners were great to work with and answered all our questions. Terry and Olivier were helpful as well. There are multiple porches, hammock, the hot tub the best one Ive ever been in. The outdoor shower amazing...(no one can see you at all) VERY PRIVATE and all kinds of wildlife to been seen, heard and enjoyed. We did not get the A/C, and it was hot when we were there, but we kept the doors with screen open and small fan and were fine for sleeping. We were able to use the beach bags,coolers and snorkel masks/flippers which was great. It is close to some cute restaurants and beautiful beaches within 10 minutes. The ride up the driveway is steep and not for the faint of heart, but my husband did it great. Definitely need a jeep/4WD!

We would definitely come back to Seawing if we visit St.John again. Got our deposit back, no problems. Everything honestly was perfect. No complaints only happy memories of an amazing house to enjoy this amazing island.

Seawing is a fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I just returned from a 15 day vacation on St. John. We spent 8 nights at Seawing and absolutely LOVED every minute! The property is beautiful and very clean. It is excellently maintained by a staff of professionals who keep up with tropical landscape gardening and maintenance. The property had everything we needed and much more. The owners were very professional and were wonderful to deal with. They quickly responded to every question we had and were very helpful. The views from the decks and hot tub were fabulous. We enjoy grilling when we are on vacation and the gas grill was the cleanest we have ever found at a rental property. This villa is absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway/honeymoon because it is so private. We highly recommend this villa and you will find that it is exactly like the photos/description on VRBO.

Review #11627145 “ddbird”

How do you know, when you see a property on-line and read reviews, that all that information matches your needs for that relaxing and fun vacation? This property lives up to its photos, the description on the VRBO site, and the excellent reviews. We stayed 10 beautiful days and loved the fabulous views, outdoor shower, using the BBQ, the expansive deck, a great architectural house design, and the opportunity to go to a different beach each day for our 10 days. We'll never forget those island breezes coming into the loft doors as you awake in the morning. Being on the Coral Bay side of the island is a real plus for us: no crowds, very good restaurants in the area (Shipwreck Landing, Aqua Bistro), easy access to most everything, and plenty of goats and donkeys if thou wish. The 4 wheel drive is a must as the first trip up the driveway is a stunner and let's you know of the adventure ahead. All very doable to the 4 of us - all in our 60's and 70's. The owners love their property and it shows. All together it was one of our best vacations ever. Priceless and peaceful.
