Sun, Moon & Stars
Calabash Boom, Coral Bay - 1 bedroom villa
This charming villa commands a fantastic view of St. John's pristine East End and the many British Virgin islands and cays beyond, all dramatically staged against the vast blue backdrop of ocean and sky. Sun, Moon & Stars is a one-bedroom home just perfect for couples. Built all on one level, this villa offers a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious dining and living area with a cathedral ceiling, and an air-conditioned queen bedroom. French doors open from the living and dining areas to a wide covered verandah which overlooks that unparalleled sea view and catches the cool island tradewinds.
On one side is the secluded pool and sun deck in a lovely tropical garden setting. Sun, Moon & Stars' pool deck offers a surprising and unique feature: the oceanside portion of the deck railing is hinged and can be opened and swung out of the way, so that you may enjoy an uninterrupted vista of the amazing ocean panorama beyond - just perfect for a private poolside massage with a view! Relaxation and a good meal for two go together, so the wide covered verandah is furnished with a cushioned sofa and a table and chairs for alfresco dining; it's shaded and cool by day and frames the sky at night for romantic stargazing. Sun, Moon & Stars is located high on a hill above Calabash Boom, reached by a winding country road, so the elevation and the balmy breezes usually keep the temperature at this property very comfortable, and provide the incredible views you'll always remember. Behind you is National Park land.
Sun, Moon & Stars is located on the quiet side of St. John, but Coral Bay's bars, restaurants and small shops are just a couple minutes' drive down the road. You can rent small boats and snorkel gear at Crabby's, pick up some groceries at Lily's Gourmet Grocery (or ask us to arrange to have your groceries purchased and delivered to your villa just before your arrival - what luxury!), enjoy a casual meal at Skinny Legs, Donkey Diner, Aqua Bistro or Sweet Plantains, and try Shipwreck Landing for dinner and live music once a week. The Ram's Head trailhead is just a few minutes' drive from Sun, Moon & Stars should you feel like hiking to some of the best views in the Caribbean. Just recently refurbished and now beautifully furnished in comfortable island style, this lovely and private villa is cozy and welcoming and provides the perfect vacation spot for couples young and old. (Sun, Moon & Stars is next door to Moonswept, a new two-bedroom villa - if you need up to three bedrooms, you can rent both villas together).
