Description of Sun, Moon & Stars
This charming villa commands a fantastic view of St. John's pristine East End and the many British Virgin islands and cays beyond, all dramatically staged against the vast blue backdrop of ocean and sky.
Sun, Moon & Stars is a one-bedroom home just perfect for couples. Built all on one level for easy access, this nicely-cared-for villa offers a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious dining and living area with a cathedral ceiling, and an air-conditioned queen bedroom.
French doors open from the living and dining areas to a wide covered verandah which overlooks that unparalleled sea view and catches the cool island tradewinds. On one side is the secluded swimming pool and sun deck in a lovely tropical garden setting. Sun, Moon & Stars' pool deck offers a mesmerizing vista of the amazing ocean panorama beyond, perfect for a private poolside massage with a view! Relaxation and a good meal for two go together, so the wide covered verandah is furnished with a cushioned sofa and a table and chairs for alfresco dining; it's shaded and cool by day and frames the sky at night for romantic stargazing.
Sun, Moon & Stars is located high on a hill above Calabash Boom, reached by a winding country road, so the elevation and the balmy breezes usually keep the temperature at this property very comfortable, and provide the incredible views you'll always remember. Behind you is National Park land.
Sun, Moon & Stars is located on the quiet side of St. John, but Coral Bay's bars, restaurants and small shops are just a couple minutes' drive down the road. You can rent small boats and snorkel gear at Crabby's, pick up some groceries at Lily's Gourmet Grocery (or ask us to arrange to have your groceries purchased and delivered to your villa just before your arrival - what luxury!), enjoy a casual meal at Skinny Legs, Donkey Diner, Aqua Bistro or Sweet Plantains, and try Shipwreck Landing for dinner and live music once a week. The Ram's Head trailhead is just a few minutes' drive from Sun, Moon & Stars should you feel like hiking to some of the best views in the Caribbean.
Beautifully furnished in comfortable island style, this lovely and private villa is cozy, welcoming and provides the perfect vacation spot for couples young and old.
(Sun, Moon & Stars is right next door to Moonswept, a two-bedroom villa - so if you need up to three bedrooms, you can rent both villas together!)
A 32-inch flat-screen cable TV with DVD player, 3-CD player, iPod dock + MP3 connection with Bose indoor/outdoor speakers, books, games, movie + music collections, A/C in bedroom, high-speed internet connection + Wi-Fi for your laptop, answering machine, hair dryer, safe for valuables, binoculars, gas grill, beach chairs + coolers, UV water purification system; laundry. To be green, this villa uses non-toxic cleaning products and employs solar PV panels!
HOW IS THE ROAD UP TO SUN, MOON & STARS? This villa is located in Calabash Boom - a lovely, secluded, quiet community. The Calabash Boom Road to Sun, Moon & Stars is owned by the VI Territory and is largely unpaved. Seasonally, it can sometimes get pretty bumpy. However, any 4-wheel drive vehicle can handle it easily; renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required for Sun, Moon & Stars. In late 2010 and 2011, some sections of the road were paved, and some concrete water bars were installed to help keep the road in better shape. Is it perfect? No. It will only be perfect when it is completely paved, which won't happen for a while. Is it navigable? ABSOLUTELY! And actually, many guests think it's fun going up and down. But, the road is now routinely maintained to make it as good as it can possibly be.
