Caneel Trailside Cottage
Cruz Bay, Overlooking Caneel
2 Bedroom(s), 2 Bath(s)

A nature's paradise -- If you want to relax next to your own private swimming pool adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park, surrounded by a private tropical garden, then this is the place for you. You will feel entirely away from it all, despite the fact that the galleries, restaurants, bars, music, shopping and other conveniences of Cruz Bay are only one mile away. You'll enjoy Caribbean views from every room in the villa, and will be cooled as the ridge-top breezes refresh you after a day at the beach.

Caneel Trailside Cottage sits one mile outside Cruz Bay high up on the ridge in the saddle between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill, adjacent to the Virgin Islands National Park. This is our view. We love staying here when we can get away.

Caneel Trailside Cottage is designed with two master bedroom suites on opposite sides of a great room. Each has a king-sized bed and its own en suite bathroom, individually zoned air conditioning, and private access to a porch overlooking the Caribbean. Each bedroom suite also has a full-sized closet, two built-in dressers, and somewhere comfortable to sit and relax. All guests will like the bedrooms.

An additional sleeper sofa provides room for 2 additional guests.

All kitchen and laundry appliances are brand new and top quality.

Outdoors, A lush garden surrounds the private brick patio that encloses the swimming pool, barbecue area, plentiful seating, hammocks, and lots of space to idle away from it all. Expansive front porches look out over the Southwest end of St John and offer wonderful views of the Caribbean. The house was built in 2005 and everything is brand-new, state of the art, and in perfect condition.

Forty yards from our backyard, through the National Park land, is Caneel Hill Trail, which drops down to secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore in less than 45 minutes. Or walk the other way, and get to the town of Cruz Bay with a half-hour hike. A 1/4-mile hike brings you to the Caneel Hill Observation Platform, where you can see a 360-degree view of both the Caribbean and Atlantic as well as the entire Western Half of St. John.

Caneel Trailside Cottage is eco-friendly. We are entirely committed to protecting the Island's fragile environment. We recently assumed management of the cottage, and, like the prior owners, we want to be sure that all products and practices encountered at the cottage are as earth-friendly as possible. We are supporters of the nonprofit Friends of the Virgin Island National Park and urge you to visit their web site. Please join us as we attempt to lead the way toward a more sustainable tourism economy on St. John.
