Boats moored in charming Coral Harbor, unspoiled National Park mountains, and the islands of the Sir Francis Drake Channel meet your gaze from every vantage point of this tropical retreat. Enter the front door, walk through the beautiful stone archway, kick off your shoes on the terra cotta tiled floors and relax! Perched among the trees on a lush St. John hillside, Waterlemon Villa has all of the comforts (but none of the cares) of home!
At Waterlemon Villa you will have a variety of options to choose from for a memorable dining experience. If a night at home sounds inviting, turn on the grill! You can prepare meals in the gourmet kitchen where tropical breezes blow steadily through the 3 pair of French doors. Love City Market and Dolphin Market, both close by in Coral Bay, will be able to fulfill all of your shopping needs. Alternatively, contact Homemade Meals to Go for incredible prepared foods ready to serve at your convenience. With several restaurants only minutes away you can dine somewhere different each night. From burgers at the iconic Skinny Legs, the local flavors of Ekaete Pink Corner or Miss Lucy’s, Asian inspired meals from Wok on the Beach or Rhumb Lines, to pizza and drinks at The Salty Mongoose or Pizzabar in Paradise, it is easy to satisfy any food craving you may have!
The adjacent screened-in 10 x 30 ft. porch, with it’s wicker dining table and matching chairs, offers an inviting and carefree place to enjoy your meals. A comfortable couch with two lounge chairs and ottomans create the perfect spot for a post-beach nap or for curling up with a good book.
Inside, a cozy living room with couches, chair, and Smart TV invites you to relax together after a day of hiking the National Park Trails or swimming with sea turtles. The upper level bedroom has twin beds that can be made up as a king and a white wicker bureau and nightstand. *Please note that the twins/king in this room will be replaced with 2 twin bunkbeds beginning in August 2022.*
Across the hall is a full bathroom with a tiled indoor shower. Exposed rafters on the 16-foot ceilings throughout the upper level of Waterlemon Villa complete the open, airy, Caribbean feel.
A mahogany staircase leads to the lower level where 2 master bedrooms are furnished with queen-sized mahogany four-poster beds. Each queen bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with a private outdoor shower that is open to the sky with a window overlooking Coral Bay. Open your eyes in the morning to the view of the harbor and channel, then step through the bedroom sliders onto another 10 x 30 ft. porch with a book and a cup of coffee, or take a refreshing dip in the pool. Before you close your eyes at night, watch the stars and the lights twinkle. It is truly a magical sight.
The 8×16 ft. pool is set in a tiled deck surrounded by lush tropical foliage. Six wicker lounge chairs with outdoor pillows and matching tables tempt you to stay a little longer. Play some Kenny Chesney on the wireless speakers, pour a glass of rum punch and let your cares float away while you take in the incredible view. The pool deck is a particularly lovely place to relax while the sun travels from east to west, sinks on the other side of Bordeaux Mountain, and the sky turns from blue to pink.
Two-thirds of St. John is national park, ensuring that the island’s pristine beaches and lush greenery remain. Beaches in St. John are among some of the loveliest in the world. Waterlemon Villa’s location is ideal for exploring beaches on the North Shore, South Shore, and the East End. Several beaches have food and/or restroom & showering facilities as well as snorkeling right off the beach. Sea turtles, parrotfish, squid, barracuda, eel, and rays are all commonly spotted by snorkelers. All beaches on Love City (an affectionate nickname for St. John) have the crystal clear aquamarine water that lured you to the Caribbean in the first place.
Beach hopping isn’t the only outdoor activity people come to St. John for. The island has over 20 hiking trails to choose from. Explore colonial ruins, sugar plantations, petroglyphs, rugged coastline, native flora and fauna, and breathtaking views from many of these hikes.
Getting to Coral Bay and Waterlemon Villa is an easy 25 minute drive east from Cruz Bay on winding, scenic Centerline Road. Four wheel drive is a must at Waterlemon Villa and we suggest you reserve your rental car as soon as you reserve your stay.
