Welcome to Caneel Trailside Cottage, a spacious 2-bedroom villa located one mile outside the popular area of Cruz Bay in St. John. Set high up on a ridge between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill, providing panoramic views of the surrounding tropical scenery and out to the ocean below. Positioned adjacent to the beautiful unspoiled Virgin Islands National Park, this property is at one with the surrounding flora and fauna. Perfect for an adventurous couple, group of friends or even an active family, this secluded spot is just 40 yards from Caneel Hill Trail, which winds down through the lush vegetation to some of the island's pristine secluded beaches on the North Shore. The bustling town of Cruz Bay, offering many galleries, restaurants, bars, and music, is also easily accessible by a hike or by car. A stay in any of the luxury villas in St John is bound to be a vacation of a lifetime.

Caneel Trailside Cottage is the definition of a tropical escape. A lush verdant garden surrounds a patio, swimming pool, teak poolside sun loungers and a barbecue area. The thick vegetation ensures you and your guests can lay out in the sun and make the most of the outdoor space in total privacy. A large shaded veranda covers a stylish outdoor dining area, perfect for enjoying casual lunches or afternoon cocktails as a brief respite from the midday sun, kept cool by the hilltop breeze. Overlooking the southwest end of St John, the veranda provides breathtaking ocean views as far as the neighbouring island of St Croix. For a special occasion, our concierge service can organize a private chef to prepare an intimate dinner for you and your guests to share from the privacy of your own villa.

The villa's interior boasts a casual and welcoming atmosphere. Large French doors connect the sitting room to the outdoor seating area, allowing the fresh breeze to wash through the living area and bathe the space with natural light. From the plush sofa, you can either gaze out to the surrounding scenery or spend a cosy evening with your partner or guests. Built in 2005, the property is equipped with modern, high-quality appliances. Two ensuite bedrooms are located on either side of the central living space. Complete with individually zoned air conditioning, the spacious bedrooms offer you and your guests independence. A sofa bed is also available should you have any more friends join for an overnight visit.

The picturesque US Virgin Islands are famous as some of the best Caribbean islands for couples. The tropical climate makes it perfect for exploring year-round. The luscious hilly terrain lies home to many hikes that take you to picture-perfect viewing spots, including the Caneel Hill Observation Platform just a quarter-mile walk from the villa. Centrally located, St John is a great jumping-off point for visiting some of the other spectacular Caribbean islands. A day trip to any of the nearby spots can offer rivers, waterfalls, plantations and wildlife.

We loved our stay at Caneel Trailside Cottage. It was a wonderful respite in a place of simple beauty. The house was beautifully laid out, open and bright and impeccably clean and fresh. The great view from the front balcony was spectacular and was a perfect place to read, have a drink or just sit and take in the beauty of this place.
