Welcome to Southern Exposure, a spacious home on St. John built and decorated in true Caribbean style, featuring expansive views of the open sea and cooling trade wind breezes. There is a huge, sprawling deck perfect for entertaining your guests or a private evening of stargazing. Day and night, views from Villa Southern Exposure’s deck give you 180 degree plus vistas of the Caribbean to the south, and to the broad expanse of the Fish Bay valley. Here, you’ll bask in the warm glow of the morning sun as it rises above St. John’s hills to the east, or while away hours watching sailboats on the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
The Southern Exposure is a 3 bedroom 3 bath spacious home located in Fish Bay, on St. John’s south shore, just a quick twelve minute drive to Cruz Bay, where you’ll find markets, restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
Away from the hustle and bustle of town, Southern Exposure offers guests the quiet and solace that brings people to St. John. The Home comfortably accommodates up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom.
The upstairs/downstairs layout provides two separate and spacious communal living areas with large decks so this home is perfect for families with children, or separate groups of couples wishing some ‘private space’. The raised deck pool, is surrounded by beautiful native stone and coral walls and an array of colorful bougainvillea, allemande flowers, hibiscus and palm trees.
Southern Exposure offers panoramic St. John ocean views and trade wind breezes. There is a second, lower-level covered deck that offers dining and sitting off of the lower sitting room.
The separate cabana’s newly covered deck area provides yet another private lounging space, as does the main house master bedroom’s private deck.

You have a beautiful, comfortable, well appointed home with fantastic views. We enjoyed our stay — our 8th visit to St. John — at Southern Exposure, and one of our best. And the folks at Seaview were fantastic – very accommodating and helpful.
– Susan & Mike, Atlanta, GA, and Petra, Prague, Czech Republic
Thank you for a beautiful villa, and thanks [to Seaview] for being a caring and helpful management team. For the over 60 crowd, we passed up the snorkeling but thoroughly enjoyed the views… eating out and cooking on the house’s Weber [grill].
