St John is one of the real jewels of the Caribbean and this gorgeous villa with pool offers one of the most breath taking views in the entire Caribbean. The view extends from the waters of Coral Bay at your feet, to the East End of St. John and down the full length of the Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda some 40 miles away. Indeed, the islands seem to float between sky and sea in succession of Island Horizons.
The villa's two 62 ft/ 20m tiled and covered verandas take full advantage of this view whether in dining al fresco near the barbecue or lazing in the hammock. Sliding glass doors from the great room and each of the bedrooms prov...ide the same view and access to the verandas. Even the secluded pool with its large sundeck and shaded arcade set amid colorful tropical gardens share the view!
The villa is equidistant from the fabulous beaches of St. John's north shore, the secluded beaches of the East End and the less visited beaches of the south shore -- all part of the Virgin Islands US National Park. The beaches and the off-shore reefs offer some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean.
This sparkling 5yr. old villa is designed for comfort and fun. It offers 3 bedrooms (two quuens and one king/twins) withA/C and private full bath. The great room has a comfortable living area with a large screen HD cable TV, a dining area of relaxed elegance, and a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and all the appliances a chef might crave -- all surrounded by original art work. Fans in every room. Internet access and Wi-Fi.
The villa is very private and the pool very secluded, surrounded with tropical gardens.Read more
Quiet Coral Bay on the laid back eastern side of St. John is equidistant from the fabulous North Shore beaches, the quieter South Shore beaches and the secluded beaches of the East End of St. John. The site of the villa 700 ft above Coral Bay has one of the most spectacular vistas on the island stretching down the full length of the British Virgin Islands to Virgin Gorda 40 miles away.

Hi Marie-France and Ed,
We left your beautiful home yesterday and are already wishing that we were back there. Island Horizons was the perfect home away from home with the added bonus of having the most amazing views that we have ever seen.
When we first walked in the door and saw the breathtaking views, we were in awe of the beauty of St. John and felt extremely lucky to have found Island Horizons.
Our first visit to St. John was more than 12 years ago. At that time, we stayed at The Westin in Great Cruz Bay. We only had a car for one day at that time, so we didn't spend more than an hour on the Coral Bay side of the Island; now that we have stayed in Island Horizons, we are hooked and hopefully will always stay there when we are "on island".
You have truly thought of everything when providing for your guests' needs. From the beach chairs and coolers, to the well stocked kitchen, there was nothing that we needed that we couldn't find in the house.
Although we did stay in and grill during 2 of our nights there, we also went to some of the wonderful restaurants that were nearby.
I truly believe that our week in Island Horizons gave us the slice of "paradise" that we were looking for during this much needed vacation.
Be well and thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Words cannot even begin to describe how wonderful our visit to St. John & Island Horizons was. It truly could not have been more perfect. St. John is simply breathtaking, and so laid back and relaxing. We have already started scheming on how we can make it back!!!
Thank you so much for the ability to stay at your home during our vacation. Island Horizons was beautiful, clean, and comforting. I was very impressed!! And Sharon was such a sweetheart, so helpful and hardworking. She really does a wonderful job welcoming guests and keeping the home spotless. Your paintings were gorgeous, as well; I really enjoyed them! We were sad to leave, but look forward to returning to Island Horizons in the future!

We had a fantastic vacation at Island Horizons. The home is absolutely gorgeous and the views are beyond belief! The owners did an amazing job in planning and decorating. The home is lovely, comfortable, and so spacious. The house comes complete with everything anyone could want including kitchen items, comfortable bedding, and beach gear.
We enjoyed breakfast outside every day and even a few dinners. We enjoyed the morning sun by the pool and the wonderful afternoon shade. The views of Coral Bay and all the different islands, as well as the beautiful flowers and landscaping are spectacular.
The location was perfect for us! It was easy to get to restaurants and great beaches. We enjoyed aqua Bistro, Miss Lucy's, Vie's Snack Shack, Caneel Bay Restaurant, and Skinny Legs. Every day we went to at least one beach. The snorkeling was amazing at Little Lameshur, Honeymoon Bay, Hansen Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay. We also went to Jumbie and Hawksnest.
We definitely plan to return to St. John. Our first trip was only five months ago and we loved it so much we had to return. When we return in the future, we hope we can stay at Island Horizons again. We loved everything about it!

My family and I had a wonderful vacation in St. John and thoroughly enjoyed staying at your villa. You have done a magnificent job of anticipating every need of your guests and the villa very much felt like home during our stay. The views of Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands from the balconies on Island Horizons are spectacular! We liked the villa so much that it was sometimes hard to venture away from the villa to explore the rest of St. John! When we were able to drag ourselves away, we thoroughly enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at Trunk Bay and at Water Lemon Bay, shopping in Cruz Bay, exploring the annaberg plantation ruins, and eating out (especially at aqua Bistro!). Everyone in the group had a great time (which is no small feat when your kids are ages 11, 17 and 19). If we are fortunate enough to return to St. John, I know that everyones's first choice will be to stay once again at Island Horizons! Thank you again for your hospitality and for sharing your wonderful home!
We created wonderful family memories in an elegant and comfortab

Island Horizons was the perfect vacation home for our family. The owners of this gorgeous home have thought of absolutely every amenity that anyone would need. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking equipment that you need to dine in and the large, air conditioned bedrooms are tastefully furnished and extremely comfortable. We spent lots of family time in the large living room either watching tv at night, playing games or just reading quietly. Waking up to sunshine everyday and then seeing the view from Island Horizons is enough to put anyone in a great mood! No more hotel rooms for us! This was the perfect family vacation!

Wonderful 3Br, 4Ba house located on Bordeaux Mountain in coral Bay. We found the house to be clean, inviting, well equipped, and convenient. The views were incredible. The grill, pool area, outdoor dining table, and wi-fi added to the experience. Would highly recommend this property, but make sure you have 4wd and can easily climb some stairs with luggage. The way the house is built into the mountain is what gives the fantastic views but also gives a workout getting to the different levels on the property. Would recommend Lucy's on the Beach, Skinny Legs, and aqua Bistro. Also suggest buying fish at Coral Bay harbor and grilling it up at home. Snorkeled every day and saw an incredible variety of wildlife including turtles, rays, starfish, shark, and all of the Caribbean reef fish. Hike to Salt Pond Beach and Ram's Point is great.

Island Horizons has stunning views of Coral Bay and the Virgin Islands - just like you see in the photos. The house was the perfect size and had all the amenities we were looking for. It is a 3 minute drive down to the great restaurants and market in Coral Bay, and only 20 minutes from Cruz Bay. Marie-France was incredibly responsive to my emails and questions, and even checked in with us after arrival to ensure everything was as we expected. We rated it Very Good instead of Excellent, since the construction at the villa next door was more disruptive than we expected (jack hammers at 9am on a Sunday, hammering at 8am weekdays) and the snorkeling equipment that came with the house left a lot to be desired (suggest you bring or rent your own). Overall, we loved the place, and would absolutely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

This is a great house. It suited our family perfectly. We have 10 and 13 year old boys and there was room to spread out and still feel like a family. My wife was able to exercise by the pool with a great view of Coral Bay. The kitchen had everything that we needed, fully equiped. We didn't even use the middle floor so if you have extended family or more children, this house would still be ample.
Decorations and amenities were great, a really comfortable home. We prefer this side of the island, very quiet. The house next door is under construction but that was never an issue.
I suggest you have the property manager show you to the home, it is tough to find if you aren't familiar with the island. I would highly recommend!
