Estate Fortsberg

Estate Fortsberg is situated in a very special and private location on the south side of St. John, just outside the wonderfully charming and quaint hamlet of Coral Bay. The house sits on a promontory of land within the National Park boundaries, overlooking Hurricane Hole and Coral Bay, at an elevation of 260 feet on historic Fortsberg Mountain.  The views from the pool deck are epic and serene.

Exterior of Villa

The home encompasses 270 degree views with every window offering breathtaking private views.  The thoughtful design of this villa makes it possible to rent it as a four-bedroom house, with all rooms open, or alternatively as a two-bedroom property for one or two couples seeking solitude and luxury.  

Estate Fortsberg

Estate Fortsberg is appointed with high end mahogany furniture of the West Indian tradition, including unique four poster beds and hand carved tables.

The pool deck at Estate Fortsberg is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and dining areas.  There is full sun, shade, and breeze in this idyllic spot.

Early risers will be delighted by the gorgeous sunrises to the east. In the evening of the full moon phase, Estate Fortsberg affords phenomenal views of the moonrise. Look northward to the towering island of Tortola and Southeast to distant Norman Island.

Estate Fortsberg

In the Caribbean tradition, the great room is the house center.  There is a gourmet kitchen, dining room and large living area complete with a wet bar.

Estate Fortsberg

The dining area, just off of the kitchen and island, is a formal and sheltered setting for meals.  Another dining area is just outside the large doors on the pool deck, with sweeping private views all around.

Estate Fortsberg

The design of this four-bedroom villa makes it possible to close off the downstairs and offer the home as a two-bedroom, with full access to the great room and pool deck upstairs.  

Estate Fortsberg

The home was designed with 4 master bedrooms complete with full baths, each with its own private outdoor stone shower.  On the first level, it has a large waterside granite patio with a roofed porch that extends the complete length of the house, offering reprieve from the bright Caribbean sun.

Testimonials

We've just returned from the most spectacular family vacation at Estate Fortsberg! The house was immaculate and fully stocked. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Every single room has its own outdoor shower. The kids played in the pool while the adults fixed dinner and enjoyed cocktails on the deck and in the hot tub. Every day we explored a different part of the island, including phenomenal snorkeling, going on boat trips, hiking and jogging on mountain trails, etc, etc. KAy and all the people at Windspree were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The only challenge we faced was that the road up to the house is as treacherous as all the reviews said it would be -- incredibly steep and full of loose rocks and dirt -- every time we went up it I was white-knuckled and gripping the edge of my seat. But overall, I would highly recommend this house!!

I’ve been meaning to call and thank you for your hospitality and courtesies during our visit.  It’s always a pleasure working with you. Estate Fortsberg was incredible!  We loved it! Everything worked perfectly, except the blender. And that was replaced in an hour. We’ve stayed at other villas on the island, but this was the best by far. Comfortable, clean, incredible panoramic  views, great lay-out, well-furnished, plenty of beach chairs and water toys (noodles). We only regretted having to leave.

We hiked up to the Fort one day for a quick look around. We didn’t get to the shoreline battery this trip, but we had explored it on a prior visit.

The new Dolphin Market is great, as is the pizza at Indigo Blue. Miss Vie’s and Maho are still our favorite beaches. The golf outing/fundraiser at Skinny Leggs was a lot of fun.

Thanks, again!

It has been ten days since we left St John, but it already feels like months! From the moment we met Richard at the dock to the moment we boarded the ferry to return home, everything was sweet paradise! I spent weeks searching sites for a villa to rent and decided on Estate Fortsberg for its view, location and layout. I have rented nice villas on St John before, all were nice and lovely, but NONE compare to Estate Fortsberg. Our group was in awe the moment we arrived! There are so many wonderful features about the villa, but I would mention three in particular. First, the bedrooms are very private, accessible, nicely decorated and well laid out. Secondly, the massive deck area allowed for enjoyment all day long - sunshine beginning at daybreak through the end of the afternoon. Third, the view! I can't imagine a view any better on the island - and i tried to find one! If anyone has questions to ask about the villa, feel free to share my email address with them! We will be back soon. I am thankful that I will not have to search hundreds of villas the next time. Estate Fortsberg is the one!

We can't say enough amazing things about our stay at Estate Fortsberg.  The house and the architecture, the pool, the VIEW!  Fabulous weather, visiting 2-3 different bays a day - Vie's beach, Hanson Bay, Hawksnest, Salt Pond Bay, Little Limeshur, etc, etc.  The Food - the Tourist Trap (Boom Boom Shake), Vie's snack shack, Shipwreck Landing, Skinny Legs, Miss Lucy's.  Riding up the hill to the house - so much fun!  Seeing the donkey's and the roosters.   Great home for young kids and multiple families.  Windspree was great!  They met us at the ferry, escorted us to the house and were available for any questions throughout.  We look forward to our next trip!

We all will be taking this place back home with us. So absolutely beautiful and truly special place with every detail thoughtfully done.

Our week was filled with snorkelling, sailing, hiking, exploring, eating, sleeping, reading, and starring off into the stars.

Taking back beautiful collection of shells, coral and remnants of the sandy beach!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

I could write a whole list of what we did and saw but you know those things. Between our two couples, we’ve stayed in 8 difference places on St. John over the 24 years we have been visiting St. John.  This lovely home is at the top of the list. You have added many special memories to what we love about St. John. Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise.


Leah & Jannis , Austin, TX , 07/2015

Since the time we booked our return to St. John, the anticipation has grown. Your beautiful villa has not disappointed. The view the pool, the design- all have exceeded our expectations. We love St. John, love Coral Bay, and now love Fortsberg as well! Thanks for such a fantastic place of refuge and solitude.

We’ll be back!


Holly & Cay Dutch , Austin, TX , 07/2015

After living in Naples Florida for the past 10 years or so. We always through we lived in paradise but now we have a truly visited another piece of paradise.

See you in Naples!


Patrick & Lisa , Naples, FL , 07/2015

This is our 4th visit to St.John. We continue to enjoy the tranquillity of the island. Great snorkelling this time at Hansen Bay and across from Vies.

The food was great as always at shipwreck and miss lucys.

Hiked reef trail saw the Petroglyphs and lots of flora and fauna.

Fortsberg is perfect. Lots of central gathering spaces but still there are spaces for privacy.

 Thank you Kay and Nancy from Windspree!


The Rivers , 06/2015

This is our second time visiting Estate Fortsberg and our third time at St. John. What a fabulous place and fabulous island to play on for a week. We came before with a family and adult children. This time we came with 4 couples. We snorkelled and snubbed and we ate at ZoZos! Great Eats!

We love the beauty of the water. One couple loved the hot tub and the scenery. One couple loved waking up 6:00 and watching the sun rise. One couple loved staying in the upstairs bedroom and looking out at all of the beauty. One couple loved how the house was decorated. Happy Faces we had by all. YOUR PLACE ROCKS!

Thank you!
