Quiet, Sea View, Pond Sanctuary, Walk to Park Beaches

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps (4), 900 sq’ Island Cottage

In National Park, on very private dead end road, 1bedroom, 1 bath complete home

Fiddlewood Cottage is an affordable breezy, very private, one bedroom (with AC), fully equipped, home on the undeveloped, quiet side of St. John, nestled within the Virgin Islands National Park. It is located a short distance from the end of the bus line at Saltpond Bay, above Mandahl Pond, with walking distance to Grootpan, Kiddel, Saltpond and Lameshur beaches. Mature gardens, with large shade trees. A peace filled sanctuary where all creatures find comfort. Except mosquitoes!!! 8 minute drive to Coral Bay for groceries, shopping and restaurants.

The cottage comes with all amenities including:

Dish soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, all kitchen supplies, bath & beach towels, beach chairs, swim fins (masks not provided), outdoor gas grill, full size kitchen and drinking water is separately filtered at the kitchen sink. In addition to the great breezes, there are ceiling fans in every room with AC in the bedroom only.

Fiddlewood has a queen size bed, plus a pull out couch in the living room. Affordable for those who loved camping at Maho Bay, Cinnamon Bay, or Concordia but want to upgrade with more privacy, comfort and easy access. Off road parking right to the front door. Dining on both the front and back decks with fresh herbs growing in the front deck garden.

There is a direct line to the cellphone tower with great reception provided your carrier works here. AT&T works GREAT but Sprint does not and Verizon, is spotty. Wireless Internet service is provided plus satellite TV is available in both the living room and bedroom.

Star gazing at night is a premium since there are no homes to look at or light pollution near by. The sunrises and sunsets are magnificent and the view down the pond to the sea from the back deck is reminiscent of the Hudson Valley Painters landscape settings. The light is especially wonderful for plein air artists. The cottage is full of original paintings and sculptures both inside and out.

Affordable, quiet, peaceful, comfortable, unpretentious living in the Caribbean is what we offer to the traveler who wants to get away far, far from the maddening crowds.
