Charming luxury villa/ Super views/ Sleeps 2-8
Tucked into the lush mountainside above Coral Bay, behind an electronic gate, Great Turtle Villa is a casually elegant vacation villa with four bedrooms in two two-story pavilions bisected by a pool.
Rent 1, 2, 3 or all 4 bedrooms while enoying access to the full house, decks, and pool. Honeymoon couple? Rent 1 bedroom. Girls' getaway? Rent all 4 bedrooms. Rates vary depending on the number of bedrooms booked.
Located in the Coral Bay area, the quieter side of beautiful St. John, in the neighborhood of Upper Carolina, Great Turtle Villa is accessed via all paved roads, a rarity on St. John and a welcome amenity in a tropical downpour. Large lots, lush foliage and upscale homes give the neighborhood an aura of comfort and privacy. Enter the villa through an electronic gate providing additional privacy, security and it keeps the wild donkeys out!
The front door of the larger pavilion's main level opens onto the attractive living and dining areas and the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with a marble-topped work table and breakfast bar. In the living area, a flat-screen TV, stereo, DVD, plus music and video libraries, provide indoor entertainment. The fully-equipped kitchen boasts stainless appliances, granite counters and enough dishes, bakeware and pans to satisfy the most particular chef. Hand-polished mahogany screened french doors open onto spacious shaded decks with cushy rockers and inviting chaises perfect for enjoying the cool tradewinds. An outdoor walkway above the pool and courtyard garden leads to the other pavilion with its Yellow Bedroom suite. An open staircase heads down beside the garden, passing exquisite orchids and a stately coconut palm, as it leads to the pool level with three more bedrooms and a home office.
All four equal size bedrooms open onto large decks with dazzling views, have AC, adjoining baths and walk-in closets making Great Turtle Villa a perfect vacation rental for friends or families to share. No one gets stuck in the "back bedroom with no view". The pool, just steps from your bedroom, is perfect for a morning dip to a midnight swim. The lush courtyard garden ensures total privacy for swimming or sunning on the deck. When children are present, to keep them safe, self-locking gates around the pool can be utilized. The house is equipped with wireless high-speed internet. The home office has a printer, fax and copier.
Just minutes from fabulous National Park beaches and the funky bars and restaurants of Coral Bay, your villa's central location allows easy access to both sides of St. John. Cruz Bay is only a 20 minute drive away and all the best hiking trails are within easy reach.
Everything about Great Turtle Villa invites you to relax. Spend the day in the cushy rockers on the deck or let your cares slip away as you lounge by the pool. The Caribbean-style decor offers a comfortable mix of inviting antiques and pleasant elegance. The villa's lush tropical gardens are filled with scarlet bougainvillea and rainbow-colored hibiscus. Slice a papaya for breakfast or pick your own lime for cocktails. But it's the awe-inspiring view - sparkling white sails bobbing on turquoise water in Coral Bay, shimmering islands on the horizon or the ever-changing greens on the verdant hills of Bordeaux Mountain - that you will carry forever in the memory of your visit to St. John and Great Turtle Villa.
As one guest from Connecticut said, "I travel the world for my work and have seen many beautiful places, but, I must say, your home and the view of Coral Bay tops them all!"TripAdvisor property ID 2189100...Read more

A beautiful and well maintained villa with a breathtaking view of Coral Bay and the Francis Drake channel. Not the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay
but still close to great restaurants in Coral Bay. Separate living and sleeping buildings isa great idea.

We have stayed all over the Virgin Islands and this is by far my favorite place! It was absolutely perfect. First of all, the view is breathtaking! Just standing on the deck brings on instant relaxation. But apart from the view the house is exactly what we needed. Each room had its own bathroom so sharing the house with other couples was easy. The kitchen was well stocked (even nicer than ours at home) so we had a great time cooking together. And best of all, the house seemed to be built with children in mind. We have a toddler and never felt worried about her safety. The pool has an optional gate around it and all the railings are very secure (plus the pool was a big hit with her). Finally, the location was perfect. We were just a couple minutes from amazing beaches and wonderful restaurants in Coral Bay. I highly recommend staying here. You won't regret it.
