Sea View Beach Cottage

Gallows Point SeaView is a spacious and very private 2 bedroom, 2 bath home with romantic ocean views located in Cruz Bay, St. John VI. Set on a huge tropically landscaped lot of nearly 1 acre, Gallows Point SeaView offers privacy and solitude, while still being centrally located.

The Gallows Point SeaView living room faces southwest with views of St. James Island on Pillsbury Sound, and exits to a wonderful outdoor dining area, and lower tanning deck. The living room is designed with a laptop workstation (there is broadband wi-fi throughout) and has cable TV with a DVD player. Each spacious bedroom enjoys magnificent ocean and sunset views, and you have your choice of two large exterior dining patios, each with ocean/sunset views. The full kitchen, with Sub-Zero Refrigerator, is huge and is tooled with chefs in mind. The kitchen also enjoys spectacular ocean/sunset views! There is plenty of private parking for several vehicles via a semi-circular drive way.

Gallows Point SeaView is located on the geographical point in Cruz Bay known as Gallows Point, and is right across the street from Gallows Point Resort. It is about a 3-5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Cruz Bay, about a 2 minute walk to Frank Bay Beach and Coconut Coast Studio Art Gallery. The Gallows Point Gourmet Shop for quick shopping, and Zozo's Restaurant are conveniently moments away.

Gallows Point SeaView faces west offering magnificent turquoise ocean views through the day, and spectacular golden sunsets setting across the ocean to St. Thomas. This delightful 2 bedroom overlooks St. Thomas and St. James islands across Pillsbury Sound. The privacy, the romantic island views, and the golden sunsets are exceptional.

“Another week in paradise.”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

My favorite place in the world is St. John, Usvi. Last week I returned for my daughter's wedding. What a beautiful location for an even more beautiful event. While on St. John I stayed at Gallow's Point Seaview, a home as beautiful as the island itself. This was my third stay at the Seaview cottage and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Close to Cruz Bay, this place is a piece of heaven on earth. Thank you Richard. We returned to Rhode Island yesterday and are already looking forward to our return to this great location.

Beautiful sunsets and close enough to Cruz Bay to walk to town. The snorkling off Gallows Point was great and we did 5 or 6 other sites during our 10 day stay. Loved the house with its views and full kitchen. This place is great for 1 or 2 couples and Tommy (house manager) was a hugh help. This place was a great sure to take a boat out to see some beautiful coral.

“Best home away from home on Sjusvi”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

We shared this wonderful cottage with our adult daughter, my brother-in-law and his wife for a long weekend in august. Seaview's location was perfect as it is just a quick walk down the hill into Cruz Bay and all of its restaurants and shops. The cottage has two comfy bedrooms, a nice living room, a large well-stocked kitchen and two great patio areas off of each side of the kitchen. Having the kitchen in the middle of the cottage was so handy and sitting up on the hill allowed us to enjoy the ocean breeze. The large lawn and tropical landscape gave us a sense of privacy and of being much farther away from the town than we were. And we loved being that close to town! Being next to Gallows Point is huge plus also. There is a little shop there to grab essentials and more importantly, Gallows Point is the location of the incredible Zozo's Restaurant. We dined there twice on this visit and twice on our last visit to Sjusvi. Zozo's cuisine is just fabulous with a service team that is second to none. Make it a must on your list of to-do's on the island. We are trying to plan another trip back to Sjusvi next year and we will be booking Seaview for that vacation.

“So Convenient to Cruz Bay, nice views from porches too”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

We stayed at Sea View from august 5 - August 11, 2012. This was our 3rd trip to St John, and we decided to stay at Sea View so that we were within walking distance of town. The home definitely allows you to do just that. We had easy access to the ferry, the car rental facility (St John's Car Rental), Mongoose Junction, and all the restaurants in and around Cruz Bay. The down side, was the number of loud people returning from Cruz Bay between 2 - 3 a.m., but that was really only an issue one night. We did awaken early one morning to someone weed wacking the entire yard...and by St. John standards, it's a big yard! It must have taken 1.5 hours, starting at 8:00 a.m. The home itself is a bit dated, and in need of some TLC. The front landscaping was sad; actually a bit depressing entry into the home. We enjoyed sitting on the covered patio areas at the back of the house, and had to use one as the only dining area, because we needed the sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen was not air conditioned, and would get uncomfortably warm; especially using the stove or oven. The bedrooms were both nice and quite. Tommy was very pleasant and helpful during our stay. He met us at the dock, and checked in during the stay. The fridge was stocked with some welcoming beverages upon arrival! I would think twice about renting this home during the summer months again; but for location and access to Cruz Bay, you really can't beat it.

“Awesome island location an very functional quarters”

The view,location to Cruz Bay and cleanliness made for a great pivoting point to all that is unique and beautiful on St John.

“Relaxing and enjoyable time.”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2011

The location of the unit with the power in the view was not as great as we expected. We knew they were there, but thought they would be less obvious. The layout of the unit was great. The use of the pool arrangement was not as we were told at time of reservation, but owner was able to work out a good situation for us. We would not select this location again due to the power lines in view.

“Absolutely amazing!”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2011

We had stayed in Gallows Point condos a couple years ago and decided to bring our entire family this time and therefore rented the house for more space. It was amazing!! Beautiful view, comfortable for 6 adults and a baby and very convenient location. The outdoor patios were awesome and great for making dinner at home and being able to eat outside. Tommy was very helpful and went out of his way to help us with things along the way. I would recommend this house to anyone staying in St. John. It can't be beat and I hope to go back sometime very soon!!

“A very satisfying stay.”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2011

We enjoyed the design of the house very much: basically two separate apartments with a kitchen in the middle. That suited our purposes perfectly: one apartment for my husband and me, and the second one for our son, daughter-in-law and baby girl. We also loved all the outdoor patios. The location, so close to town, was another bonus. My husband and I liked to walk and we walked to town everyday. The ocean view was fantastic. And the neighborhood was quiet. The neighbor's bird feeder was a bonus: we enjoyed watching the bananaquits feeding there every morning. Also enjoyed meeting Nicodemus and the chickens.
