Skyridge is a very private ridge-top villa at 600+ feet elevation with the park, the ocean, and fourteen islands as your relaxing panoramic deck views on one side and magnificent Bordeaux mountain and valley views on the other. Unlike many villas which have dirt and very rocky roads leading to them, Skyridge is reached by a well-maintained paved road that leads to the top of Upper Carolina, one of the most desirable and safe neighborhoods on St. John. The villa has everything you need for your dream vacation including WiFi, large hi-def TVs, iPad/pod speaker docks, Tempurpedic king bed in the master bedroom, washer, dryer, two fully appointed kitchens and living rooms, outdoor dining in three areas, pool with barbeque and the most private, best all around views around. While relaxing over lunch on our upper deck, we have counted over one hundred boats at one time! Sometimes, big windjammers and cruise ships pass below us. There is always something interesting to see as you relax on the decks!
Our grounds are 1/2 acre of fenced beautiful garden and you can pick you own limes, bananas, soursop, and papaya.
Our renters often write in the guest book that they "stayed home" a lot more than they anticipated, because it was just so nice to sleep late, have morning coffee and afternoon drinks on our spacious decks, watch the boats, read in the hammock, cook out and lime at the pool and keep the birds happy eating sugar. We are often entranced to see hawks wafting in the breeze high over the National Park. Skyridge has three outdoor showers for your tropical enjoyment, plus one inside shower with the four bathrooms, plus rinse offs at the pool and carport.
It doesn't take long at Skyridge for all the stresses and strains of modern life to subside. You will feel yourself getting close to nature, the rhythms of the natural world relaxing your very core. At night, a vast sky filled with stars astonishes and occasionally bright satellites streak past. Seeing the moon rising out of the Caribbean sea is an experience never to be forgotten.
Our home, which has five bedrooms, can sleep up to ten guests but we think it is oh so wonderful for just one or two couples to make Skyridge their very own. The price is adjusted to reflect the number of guests so it is very affordable.
The famous North Shore beaches are only minutes away but, for those who enjoy their privacy, the magnificent beaches of the east and south shores such as Haulover, Salt Pond, and Lameshur are easily reached. We honestly think they are the best on the island. You may even find yourself alone on a world class beach!
In Coral Bay, you can avoid the "rush" of Cruz Bay entirely by staying on this quieter side of the island. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars to eat and be entertained. There are also three small but well stocked grocery stores in Coral Bay.
Our property and rental managers at Windspree meet you at the dock, arrange rental cars, show you the house, answer all your questions and provide bookings for activities such as offshore fishing, scuba diving, travel to the British Virgin Islands, and so forth. That free service is worth its weight in golden seashells.
Please "soon come" and enjoy Skyridge. Make it your own private villa!
