Tradewinds Cottage is a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage (can be rented as either a one- or two- bedroom) perched high above John’s Folly Bay in the quiet southeastern corner of St. John, US Virgin Islands. Doug and I built and maintain this cottage ourselves, because we visited St. John 21 years ago and fell in love with the place! We purchased this hurricane-damaged house in 1999, fixed everything up ourselves, and have been renting it to very happy guests ever since! Perfect for one couple, or two couples, family with older children, girls week away, etc. You can fall asleep to the sound of tree frogs peeping and waves on the beach below…
This charming wood cottage features light, airy rooms with stunning ocean views from every window. The deck commands a panoramic view of the British Virgin Islands chain, and the southeastern exposure offers breathtaking sunrises. We do not have air conditioning, but steady tradewinds and ceiling fans throughout keep the house cool even on hot days, and ensure bug-free evenings.
Far away from the crowds and noise of Cruz Bay, this quiet part of the Island features secluded beaches and scenic tropical views around every corner. “Concordia” is the dry region of the Island, surrounded by national park. The area boasts great restaurants and bars, and it’s a short drive to local markets and shops in the village of Coral Bay. It’s a one minute drive from the cottage to the hot, sunny, uncrowded Salt Pond Beach; and a 15-20 minute drive to the spectacular but busier North Shore Beaches. Unlike most houses on St. John, our road is a flat, easy, few hundred feet from the main road to our cottage. We don’t have a pool or hot tub, or granite countertops, a dishwasher, big flat screen TV, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, or maid service… it’s a quiet, peaceful, relaxed, beautiful beach house! Tradewinds Cottage is decorated simply but eclectically in original art and crafts against white walls and natural wood. Sorry, no pets, no smoki
