LOCATION. Sea Spirit is a totally unique hideaway that sits on an oceanfront cliff surrounded by National Park in a spectacular location in Coral Bay. This is certainly one of the most private, quiet and unspoiled settings of any rental villa on St. John. The beautiful views stretch for miles and there is neither house nor human to be seen anywhere, except occasionally a sailboat silently glides by offshore. Sea Spirit is secluded but not remote, for there are 5 restaurants, two small grocery stores, a gas staion and two National Park beaches within a 5-15 minute drive. Or, if you wish to go into Cruz Bay, it's an additional 25-30 minute driv...e along the beautiful North Shore of St. John.
DESIGN. Sea Spirit is essentially a 3-room design, with the living, dining and kitchen areas in one room. The master bedroom and bath are located off the living areas and the loft bedroom is above the living area. A deck wraps around the house on 3 sides and provides a great place to dine or to listen to the undisturbed silence and take in the view.
The hot tub is located cliffside between the house and the gazebo and is a superb spot for romantic stargazing. The cliffside gazebo is also a wonderful place to enjoy your favorite novel, so bring plenty to read.

CARIBBEAN VILLAS' COMMENTS. If you've got a bit of romance and adventure in you and you long for an uncommon getaway in a beautiful National Park setting, or if you're a naturalist looking for that ultimate location where you can be completely at one with nature, we've got your number. Sea Spirit became available for vacation rentals in the fall of 2001 and because of the unusual nature of this villa we quickly added it to our listings. This location really sets Sea Spirit apart, both literally and figuratively.
Although Sea Spirit is ultra private, it is still close to some of St. John's favorite attractions and also close to some of the island's lesser known jewels. For example, a 10-minute walk or a 2-minute drive takes you to snorkeling and swimming at the secluded, rarely inhabited pebble beaches at Groot Cove or Kittle Cove. A 5-minute drive takes you to the smooth white sands, turquoise waters and fine snorkeling at the National Park Beach at Salt Pond.
A 5-minute drive also gets you to Miss Lucy's, a not-to-be-missed restaurant on the water in Coral Bay. When you combine Sea Spirit's pristine setting with the romantic charm of St. John, you have a unique rental villa with great appeal to honeymooners, lovers, artists, writers, dreamers and naturalists. Sea Spirit is also suitable for small families.
