Know Before You Go...

If you want to relax in a private swimming pool next to the Virgin Islands National Park, then Caneel Trailside Cottage is the place for you. The villa feels tranquil and serene, even though Cruz Bay’s art galleries, restaurants, bars, and shops are only one mile away. This is the perfect location for hikers and explorers. A 1/4-mile hike leads to the Caneel Hill Observation Platform, where you can enjoy a 360º view of the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and the entire western half of St. John.

Shawna , 214-350-6220 x9102

Caribbean views from every room in the house!

Caneel Trailside Cottage sits one mile outside Cruz Bay, high up on a ridge between Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill. Everything guests could desire is within a short walk or drive, including the Virgin Island National Park Lands.

Lush gardens surround the brick sundeck, which encloses the villa’s private swimming pool. Teak poolside loungers enjoy sun and shade, thanks to large umbrellas and palm trees. Guests can enjoy al fresco feasts fresh off the grill, and dine in the shade beneath the wide veranda. The veranda overlooks the southwestern end of St. John and offers expansive ocean views all the way to St. Croix. Inside, Caneel Trailside Cottage’s warm living room and kitchen share the common area. The living room has cable/Dish TV and the kitchen is well-equipped with standard appliances, a blender, and a coffee maker. The air-conditioned bedrooms lie on either side of the common area. Both have ensuite bathrooms, exterior access, and individually zoned air-conditioning. One suite has a king bed and the other has two twin beds which can be made up as a king.

Caneel Hill Trail is forty yards from Caneel Trailside Cottage’s backyard, and secluded white sand beaches on the North Shore are within a scenic drive. Cruz Bay is minutes away, and home to the majority of the island’s restaurants, shops, and activities.

Caneel Trailside vacation

Caneel Trailside Cottage, St. John villa review

Upon arrival we met our greeter who took us to the cottage and walked us through the villa. The villa was very clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was supplied with cooking items needed to make in-house meals. We bought breakfast food and enjoyed cooking and eating on the deck. The view is relaxing with view of water off in the distance. Our stay was very enjoyable!

Andrew did a great job keeping in touch from the beginning of villa search to the end of our stay. It was very helpful working with him to make sure travel, transportation, villa, car rental was all taken care of.

Caneel Trailside Cottage, St. John villa review

Our stay at the Caneel Trailside Cottage was very enjoyable. The layout of the villa is very functional and it is nicely furnished, lending it a homey and gracious feel. We especially enjoyed the pretty patio with pool and surrounding garden and potted plants. Storage place is ample and the kitchen is well equipped. Gas grill and blender, along with large and small coolers were well appreciated. The view from the large veranda covered the south, and on clear days even St. Croix Island. My favorite feature was the proximity to the hiking trails - an easy 1/2 mile to an overlook on Caneel Hill, a 1/2 mile trail to the North Shore Road, and an even shorter walk to Margaret Hill. The driveway looks steep and daunting at first, but the Jeep climbed it nicely. A couple of times when we had questions for the management, our phone calls were answered immediately and professionally. We did not need to use the air conditioner in our bedroom because the screened windows and ceiling fan kept us cool enough at night. All in all, we loved every bit of it, including geckos and the nightly cricket chorus.

Very efficient and pleasant. Shawna was very responsive to our questions.
