Mooncottage is a romantic hideaway for couples seeking a secluded spot, or for vacationing with friends. Nestled high up on a hillside within tropical gardens, it offers one of the best views on St. John - a postcard 180-degree panoramic view of Coral Bay, Tortola, Norman Island and even Virgin Gorda.

Set on an acre of natural Caribbean beauty, Mooncottage is the right size, totally private, fully screened and graced with lovely gardens of, banana, papaya and flowering trees. Climb a stone staircase and you will be led into the peace and tranquility of Mooncottage.

The two pavilions crafted in native stone are bordered by a graveled courtyard garden with a koi pond. A heated pool and next to the covered verandah overlook the breath-taking Caribbean horizon.

The main pavilion is tastefully decorated with upholstered sofas and chairs with teak and other exotic hardwood accents. The space flows into the colourful gourmet kitchen and a full bath with a moon window. A queen bed completes the restful feel of this pavilion, with a shaded porch just outside. Next door is the master bedroom pavilion, complete with an outside shower, queen bed and full bath.

The Asian-influenced architecture, eclectic furnishings and this villa's very serene ambience are the definition of calm simplicity itself, while exuding luxury in so many ways. Lavishly equipped, Mooncottage offers many excellent amenities, including satellite internet for your computer, and a complimentary welcome basket of provisions and special gifts for all guests. Its high elevation and island tradewinds ensure comfort, and offers peace and tranquility, with birds singing, surf whispering below and night skies offering you the romance of the moon and a million stars.

It is a short drive down to Coral Bay where you will find bars and a couple of restaurants and beaches.

Enjoy an enchanting stay at Mooncottage.
