Windwardside Main House Deck, Hot Tub and View

Welcome to Windwardside, an elegant retreat with lovely furnishings, a beautiful view and lush tropical gardens. It is the most intimate and traditional of all of our homes In Coral Bay. The design is reminiscent of a bygone era in the caribbean but the amenities are modern and designed for comfort. My husband (a retired builder on the island) and I designed this home. We have years of experience of offering visitors to the island an unusual experience that brings them outside of their day to day life but is a comfortable and welcoming home away from home. Recent renovations to the house have added much to its beauty and charm.

Windwardside Main House Deck, Hot Tub and Bedroom

This traditional West Indian style home consists of multiple buildings with a large central courtyard. The mainhouse consists of two buildings: the first is a detached bedroom / bathroom with a veranda that looks over the courtyard, gardens and sea; the second is the “great house”. The great house is entered though a roomy screened-in porch which holds a beautifully furnished dining room and a cushioned window seating area. There is a full kitchen and living room, an adjoining bath, plus an inviting covered porch overlooking the sea. Larger groups can rent Windwardside guest cottage as an additional bedroom. You will find a floor plan further below for reference.

Living and Dining Area

Our guests love the separation of the bedroom from the living area. It is a uniquely caribbean experience that allows you to end your day by admiring the night sky. Our skies are devoid of light pollution so we have a brilliant display of stars during the dark of the moon. During the days when the moon is full view from the hot tub is unbelievably romantic.

Living Room

Our kitchen is small but extremely well appointed. Windwardside (in conjunction with the neighboring Guest Cottage) has always been my choice when we have had family visiting so it is well set up for any meals you wish to enjoy in the comfort of the villa. You will find all the equipment you need to prepare your meals at home including a high quality gas grill. For those who prefer to take a break from cooking on their vacations there are numerous restaurant within a few miles from the villa. Our staff will be happy to tell you about the offerings both in Coral Bay and Cruz Bay.

Bedroom

The charming detached bedroom has a four poster bed and opens onto a relaxing verandah. Fill the coffee pot the night before and surprise your partner with coffee on the verandah as a romantic way to start the day. The master bedroom has a full bath with a shower located in an enclosed shower garden that is open to the sky but totally private. If the weather doesn’t allow for that (a rarity on St. John) there is also an indoor shower and full bath located off the living room.

Covered porch

Brick courtyard

Windwardside shares the property with the neighboring Guest Cottage. They share no amenities except the parking area and are visually obscured from one another by thick tropical foliage. Please be sure to read our reviews from former guests who can assure you that your vacation will be a private one.

View from villa

Windwardside makes every attempt to protect the beautiful environment that makes it such a special place. The majority of our power is from discretely placed solar panels. Gray water from our showers is recycled to water our beautiful tropical gardens. Whenever possible we use natural cleaning products including laundry soap. As more options open we will continue to add to our green environment efforts.

Courtyard and chairs

Our staff are long time members of the Calabash Cottages team and will do their best to help you plan your perfect vacation from start to finish. We hope to see you soon!

Location: Coral Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Windwardside is located in quiet seclusion with mesmerizing views of Coral Bay, nearby islands and the Caribbean Sea. The house is situated two thirds of a mile up a little used road in Coral Bay. Surrounded by tropical plantings and marvelous vistas, you are still just a short drive to a cool splash in Salt Pond Bay or other equally inviting white sand beaches. Restaurants, shops and watersports are all available within two miles in Coral Bay. The main town on the island, Cruz Bay, is located 8 miles away. The airport is in St. Thomas which is reached via a twenty minute ferry ride. (Ferries leave every hour on the hour and cost $7 each way).

Windwardside was created to meet the desire to travel in groups with friends and loved ones yet still maintain a sense of privacy while doing so. This focus on privacy also makes it a wonderful retreat for couples. The whole complex – the Great House (master bedroom, two baths) and the guesthouse (one bedroom, one bath) can be rented as one by larger groups. Smaller groups or couples can choose from either the main house or the guest house. When rented individually privacy is assured by the orientation of the buildings and the heavy plantings screening them from one another.

Activities

We are happy to make suggestions for activities that suit your interests.  When you arrive at your cottage we will go over a map of the island and point out the best beaches, hiking trails, snorkel spots, etc.  Most activities can be arranged once you are on island but if you are planning a day on the water you may want to arrange that in advance. Consider Busy Bee Charters “Lap of St. John” on Wednesday for a really fun trip that departs right from Coral Bay.

Arrival

Windwardside is managed by on island owners. We will meet your ferry on arrival, arrange for discounted car rentals and provide the personal attention you need to make your stay with us as pleasant and relaxing as possible. We can also arrange for a driver to meet your flight for the 50 minute ride to the Red Hook ferry dock.
