Horizons Cottage on St. John is located on the quiet, breezy southeast end of the island. With the trade winds constantly blowing, the sound of the waves and the fabulous views, you’ll be content for hours sitting on the deck. You can see the mouth of Coral Bay, the East End of St. John, the British Virgin Islands all the way to Virgin Gorda, and the open ocean.

Horizons is a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath fully tiled cottage near the end of a paved dead end road. Park in the driveway and walk into the open floor plan home via the keyless entry. You’ll be amazed at the spectacular views through the large picture windows and slider. With a wrap around deck on the main floor, you can always find shade and a wind free place to sit and enjoy the views or eat a meal. The main floor consists of the dining area with a table to seat six, living and kitchen areas with a half bath. In the kitchen you’ll find granite countertops, double sink, dishwasher, glass top range, fridge with ice maker, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, small food processor, blender, as well as a full compliment of stainless and nonstick cookware. You should have all you need for meal preparations including cloth napkins. We have high speed wireless internet, hard wired phone with answering machine, smart TV with Netflix, DVD player and lots of movies, great books, puzzles and games, radio/DVD player with lots of CD’s and bluetooth capabilities.  Shampoo, conditioner and body wash are provided, along with a beach towel To make it easier for you traveling.

Downstairs you’ll find another deck and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms that have unique screened showers. On one side there’s a king sized bed, the other side has two twins that can be converted into a king with a memory foam topper. Enjoy the enchanting sunrise & moon rise views over the sea from the downstairs deck. Fall asleep to the sounds of tree frogs & gentle waves.

The concrete parking area can fit two cars. There’s also a storage box with beach chairs and lots of snorkel gear. We have a Weber gas grill and a garden hose to rinse beach sand from everything! For trips to the beach, we have a cooler.

Getting Here

After you have arrived in St. Thomas by plane, you can retrieve your belongings and when prompted at the exit for a taxi, just ask for St. John. There will be a charge for the transportation and a fee for the luggage. From there you will go to the ferry dock at Red Hook and take the boat over to St. John. (cost is $7 one way, plus the cost per bag at $2.50). Once you get to St. John, the car rental company (see below for phone numbers) will meet you and direct you to their location within walking distance.

We have had luck with these companies with rentals and their willingness to meet guests at the dock upon request. Remember that most close around 5pm so take this into consideration when making travel plans.

Remember, we drive on the LEFT side of the road. The roads are very steep, narrow, windy with very little signage to alert you of upcoming sharp curves in the road.

From Cruz Bay: Take Route 10 (Centerline Road) to Coral Bay, turn right onto Route 107 when you see all the signs and are on the flat section of the road. If you go over speed bumps, you missed the turn! Follow Route 107 south along the coast to Horizons and Captain’s Cabin, through Coral Bay and around the coast. You will pass Shipwreck Landing Restaurant, then 1 mile later, Miss Lucy’s Restaurant. We’re 1 mile from there on the left. At the top of the hill turn left where you see a group of mailboxes and a sign for “Concordia Eco-tents” and also a sign for “Sugarbird Hill”. Bear left up the concrete road, Sugarbird Hill. In about 1/10 of a mile you will see a small road split down to the left and one head up to the right. Stay on the one in the middle that goes straight up Sugarbird Hill. Horizons Cottage is on the other side of the hill on your left. You will see the blue roof as you approach, and the name of the cottage is on the house. It is a dead end road shortly after the house.
