Gallows Point Seaview Beach Cottage

· Cottage



Gallows Point Seaview Beach Cottage is a lovely and elegant 2 bedrooms / 2 baths private home with romantic ocean views located in Cruz Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Set on a huge tropically landscaped lot of nearly 1 acre, Gallows Point SeaView offers privacy and solitude, while still being centrally located. At the Gallows Point Seaview Cottage, you can enjoy quiet and peaceful ocean panoramas and sunsets due west directly to St. Thomas across Pillsbury Sound, as well as southwest towards the St. James Islands, and past towards St. Croix. The Gallows Point SeaView living room faces southwest with views of St. James Island on Pillsbury Sound, and exits to a wonderful outdoor dining area, and lower tanning deck. The living room is designed with a laptop workstation (there is broadband wi-fi throughout) and has cable TV with a DVD player. Each spacious bedroom enjoys magnificent ocean and sunset views, and you have your choice of two large exterior dining patios, each with ocean and fiery sunset views.

The full kitchen, with Sub-Zero Refrigerator, is huge and is tooled with chefs in mind. The kitchen also enjoys spectacular ocean/sunset views! There is plenty of private parking for several vehicles via a semi-circular driveway. Gallows Point SeaView is located on the geographical point in Cruz Bay known as Gallows Point and is right across the street from Gallows Point Resort. It is about a 3-5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Cruz Bay, about a 2-minute walk to Frank Bay Beach and Coconut Coast Studio Art Gallery. The Gallows Point Gourmet Shop for quick shopping and Ocean 362 restaurant are conveniently moments away. Gallows Point SeaView faces west offering magnificent turquoise ocean views through the day, and spectacular golden sunsets setting across the ocean to St. Thomas. This delightful 2 bedroom overlooks St. Thomas and St. James islands across Pillsbury Sound. The privacy, the romantic island views, and the golden sunsets are exceptional.

The Seaview Cottage grilling patio enjoys spectacular unobstructed ocean panoramas of Caribbean turquoise by day and fiery golden sunsets by evening. The walkthrough chef’s kitchen connects the grilling patio to the master suite patio and sun deck. The Seaview guest bedroom (bedroom 2) with ocean view is on the grilling patio.

The Seaview Beach Cottage sits on approximately 1 acre of land away from other buildings offering wonderful privacy. Cruz Bay town with its restaurants and shops is a slow 5-minute stroll or a quick 3-minute walk. Across the street is Gallows Point Resort with its excellent Ocean 362 restaurant open only for dinner, as well as the Gallows Point Gourmet and Gift Shop for a varied selection of grocery items and prepared sandwiches and drinks. A 3-minute westerly walk towards the ocean is quaint Frank Bay with its beautiful turquoise sea. Though it offers no competition to the breathtaking national park beaches, it is certainly worth a walk to the edge of the Caribbean Sea to take in the view of St. Thomas across the bay.

The Seaview Cottage master suite living room with a queen sleeper sofa provides an excellent ocean view to the southwest. The living room exits to the master suite patio, the chef’s kitchen, and sundeck. The Seaview master suite bedroom is accessed via the living room. The Seaview Cottage driveway and parking is at the back entrance.

The spacious Seaview king master bedroom with ensuite bath offers relaxing Caribbean ocean panoramas and dramatic sunsets. Together with its adjoined ocean view living room, oceanview decks, and professional culinary cooking options, the Seaview Beach Cottage master suite provides simple elegance and essential amenities to enjoy a truly wonderful Virgin Islands beach vacation.

The tropical island setting and convenient location of the Gallows Point Seaview Cottage can be seen in this aerial photograph. Gallows Point Resort and Ocean 362 dinner restaurant are across the street to the west. A short walking distance north of Seaview Cottage are the shops and restaurants of Cruz Bay including the passenger ferry dock, the National Park Visitor Center, and shared jitney taxis to the north shore beaches. For hikers, Salomon Beach and Honeymoon Beach, two of St. John’s most beautiful beaches accessible only by hiking (or boat) are just beyond the white structures on Caneel Hill.

The Seaview sun deck is located on the lower level of the master suite dining patio. As this photo shows, the chef’s kitchen is just beyond the master suite dining patio. The large chef’s kitchen is conveniently nestled between the master suite patio and the grilling patio.

The Seaview spacious kitchen is completely equipped for the most meticulous chefs including a full-size refrigerator and gas stove. Cookware and dinnerware for six is provided. Counter & cupboard space is plentiful in this wonderfully well-lit oceanview kitchen.

The wonderful beach-side walk into Cruz Bay from the Seaview Cottage is approximately 3 to 5 minutes. The slower the walk, the more relaxing. Although not a swimming beach, Cruz Bay beach is a well-maintained sand beach. You may opt to walk on the beach directly to the town square at the ferry dock. The walk into town via the main road enters town via a dive shop, restaurants, and the Catholic church.

Salomon Beach and Honeymoon Beach mark the beginning of St. John’s famous north shore beaches. They are certainly among the most beautiful beaches in the world. Both beaches are just beyond Caneel Hill, a landmark overlooking Cruz Bay. Since there are no public roads to either, they can only be reached via the Lind Point hiking trail, or by boat. For hikers, the trailhead begins at the Cruz Bay National Park Center.

For access by boat, inquire at the Gallows Point Shop about renting an inflatable dinghy to control your own schedule and itinerary. You may also reserve a boating excursion that schedules round trips to Honeymoon Beach. Inquire at the National Park visitor center from park rangers about both options regarding current advisories and conditions.
