private and so romantic, Mooncottage will delight those seeking
a lovers' hideaway or a secluded spot for vacationing with friends.
Tucked within lush gardens and set high on a green hill reached
via a winding island road, Mooncottage commands one of the best
views on St. John - a sweeping 180-degree blue and green panorama
of Coral Bay, Tortola, Norman Island and Virgin Gorda.
A stone staircase ushers you into the soothing
zen magic of Mooncottage: two pavilions crafted in native stonework
bordered by a graveled garden courtyard set with a bubbling
koi pond, and connected by a heated pool, with an adjacent covered
verandah overlooking the endless Caribbean horizon.
The main pavilion is tastefully done with upholstered
sofas and chairs, is accented with teak and other exotic hardwoods,
and shares space with the colorful gourmet kitchen and a full
bath with a moon window. A queen bed (perfect for a second couple
or third person, if you want to share) completes the restful
aura of this pavilion, and the shaded porch just outside beckons
relaxation. Adjacent is the master bedroom pavilion with an
outside shower, queen bed and full bath.
The architecture, Feng Shui, eclectic furnishings
and this villa's very serene and spiritual ambience are simplicity
itself, but exceptional in so many ways. Superbly equipped,
Mooncottage offers many excellent amenities, including satellite
internet access for your laptop, a complimentary welcome basket
of provisions and special gifts for all guests.
Set on a half acre of natural Caribbean beauty,
Mooncottage is exactly the right size, totally private, fully
screened and graced with lovely gardens, banana, papaya, mampoo
and flowering Chapeau Napoleon trees. Its high elevation and
constant island tradewinds assure cool comfort, and it offers
tranquility and closeness to nature, with turtle doves cooing,
surf whispering below and night skies offering you the moon
and a million stars. A short drive down the hill to Coral Bay
puts you within minutes of bars, restaurants and beaches - but
you may decide to stay at Mooncottage and just enjoy the peace,
the view and each other. Unique and exceptional.
