About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Monkey No Climb is a beautiful West Indian Style St. John villa completed in 2008. This lovely St. John USVI vacation home is perched 1,070 feet high on Bordeaux Mountain above the community of Coral Bay, St. John in the US Virgin Islands. From the villa, you will marvel at the breathtaking views of Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay, Tortola, Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole and the entire Sir Francis Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda. You’ll never want to leave!

A romantic and secluded St. John vacation rental, Monkey No Climb is perfect for nature lovers, artists, writers, birders, hikers, newlyweds, newly in love or people in search of seclusion. The focal point of the villa is the totally private, large covered deck. From this vantage point, you can enjoy one of the most pristine views in the Caribbean while relaxing in your private four person spa.

This lush and breezy location on Bordeaux Mt. on St. John, USVI can actually become chilly in the evenings, but you’ll stay warm as you star gaze towards the east from your spa.??You’ll be provided warm bedding in the cooler months.

A beautiful and spacious St. John villa, Monkey No Climb features two equal size bedrooms and two equal size private bathrooms. Both bedrooms have A/C units and firm king size beds. You’ll love the bright tropical décor, a beautifully stained cypress hip roof, quality wicker and traditional hardwood furniture, Caribbean wall hangings and whimsical furnishings.

The owners had your comfort and satisfaction in mind when they designed and outfitted this villa. Additional amenities include satellite television/internet, laptop size safe, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, ceiling fans, stationary 'Life Cycle' exercise cycle, and many comfortable outdoor chairs. You will enjoy the quiet here at the end of the road, many large shade trees, vacant surrounding lots and complete privacy from neighboring homes. The lovely landscaping around this St. John Rental includes bananas, limes, lemons, starfruits, mangos, papayas, tree orchids and of course, a Monkey No Climb tree.??

Our representative can meet you at the Cruz Bay ferry or Coral Bay area, help you secure your rental car and lead you to the villa for a personal orientation of the house. The drive is totally paved with an easy to navigate paved driveway. This St. John vacation home can now also be reached directly from Centerline Road (Route 10). Please watch out for chickens, goats, donkeys and cows in the roadway on your drive, a common site on this side of St. John!

Escape your everyday world and experience the Caribbean from the mountain-side retreat Monkey No Climb.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose St John

My wife and I chose to build on St. John and this particular lot because of the spectacular views it affords along with the buffer zones between properties. The location offers end of the road privacy and quiet with many large trees and vacant surrounding lots.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough about this property. The property manager, Gwen, was beyond helpful and friendly on the day of our arrival. The house, a 2 bedroom/2 bath house located at the top of Bordeaux Mountain overlooking Coral Bay and Tortola was more than we could have asked for. The view is better in person.

We especially appreciated that there were beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler for our days exploring St. John. The hot tub was hot, clean, and in working order. While there was AC in both bedrooms, we never turned it on. The kitchen had lots of plates, glasses, silverware, cookware, etc.

Is the drive to the the villa steep? Yes, but it's paved and perfectly safe. The location is secluded giving you complete privacy. We like being on the Coral Bay side of the island.

What you don't notice from the pictures is the amazing wood trim and beams throughout the property. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, and you can tell that the owners take pride in what they've built.

Villa in the Sky

  • 5 of 5

This villa felt like home the moment we walked in. This was a fabulous place. It is set up perfectly for two couples. The two masters are on opposite ends of the house with a covered porch that runs the length of it. It offers total privacy. The views pose a bit of a problem, because once you set foot on that porch you won't want to leave to do anything else. The bedrooms are air conditioned. The hot tub was perfect after hiking and snorkeling. The construction is a much higher level than many places in the Virgin Islands. There are fruit trees and beautiful flowers that were blooming all over the yard during our stay. The birds sang us to sleep in the evenings. It is a very special place! We will most certainly be back.
