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.

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 Cottage

Caneel Trailside Cottage, St. John villa review

We cannot say enough great things about this villa. It was the perfect location, very easy to get to all restaurants, shops, etc. It was extremely comfortable for our family of four. The villa was clean and cozy with an amazing view. We enjoyed the pool and the beautiful landscaping and wildlife right outside our door. We cannot wait to return!

Wheretostay.com and Betsy made this trip so easy to plan!!! From all of the helpful recommendations to helping us set up an airport transfer, everything was seamless. Also, the greeter, Abby, was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed upon arrival.
