St. John villa expert

Know Before You Go...

Moonswept Villa offers a well-furnished, romantic interlude in Calabash Boom. Guests at Moonswept are virtually guaranteed privacy, as the villa is secluded and sits high up on a hillside. It does require a four-wheel drive to reach the property, but this is a small price to pay for a secluded piece of paradise. The villa is designed to accommodate couples, small families, or friends traveling together, and is perfect for relaxing both indoors and out. There is a large swimming pool and a 5-person hot tub with an unbeatable view of the sea and surrounding hills. This view can also be enjoyed from inside through the huge picture windows. Less than three miles away are two spectacular beaches, and the action in Coral Bay is easily within reach, as well.

A generously-sized table from the Basque country provides dining with one of the best views you'll see on St. John. A couch and luxuriously comfortable chaise gather around a coffee table for conversation, reading, or simply enjoying the beauty of nature spread out before you.
