84 responses to “Skyridge”

  1. Packing to leave, a morning shower and a double rainbow! WOW! A beautiful finale to an amazing week. Snorkeling was great–as always. We had the friendliest turtle come up and swim all around the four of us. Carnival with the festivities associated with it is something to be bottled up and spread worldwide! So many memories… The restaurants were super ways to totally blow the diet. Skyridge is a treat. The wildlife, the view, the evening dips in the pool and the first class surroundings make Skyridge a place to remember! Thank you!

  2. We had a great week! Finally went to Trunk and Cinnamon after five years–still happiest at Salt Pond. Saw an eagleray for the first time. awesome. And the turtles are so much fun to swim with! Yesterday no power but went on five hours later with no problems. We left the gate open for five minutes and four donkey came in, but we quickly shooed them out! They didn’t have enough time to eat anything. Love the new supermarket (Lily’s) at Cocoloba Plaza.

  3. There was a beauty named Claudia,

    Who didn’t do much she ought n’tia

    But when under the sun,

    She yearned for some fun

    And sometimes became a bit naughtier!

    Walt Terry , Huntsville, AL , 11/2006

  4. Hazy summer days with lots of humidity and Sahara dust. Hot in town but great breezes here. Pool is great! Lush, there is a rain shower daily. We snokeled blue Cobblestone Beach for the first time and really liked it. Go to the right. Saw turtle and nurse shark. Enjoyed the birds–bananaquits love their “swimming pool (water in shallow dish) and sugar. Hummers galore too. Dired with larry and his Coral Bay operation… Grilled 2 lobsters we caught too. Waterlemon was super–turtle, eagle ray,.. Enjoy!

skyridge villa st. john
High on a mountain, Skyridge offers both privacy and breathtaking views.

The views can be just as magical at night with the stars and lovely distant lights of Tortola and Yost on the ocean side and across the valley on the pool side. Star and moon watching at its best here!  Sailing, power and cruise ships pass in front of you along the Narrows (The channel between Mary Point on St. John island and Great Thatch Island of the British Virgin Islands) and Sir Francis Drake Channel. The full moon rising over Sir Francis Drake Channel is not to be missed so try to plan your stay accordingly.  You also might be lucky enough to see a night blooming cereus plant in bloom then. It is an exotic huge beautiful cactus flower which only blooms for one night, always during a full moon and is as big as a dinner plate with a slight heavenly smell!  

This remarkable villa has the following highlights and amenities:

  • Expansive ocean and valley views
  • Salt-conditioned Pool
  • Outdoor grill on pool deck
  • Bluetooth Audio Sound System
  • Shaded outdoor decks on all sides
  • Flat screen Smart TVs
  • WiFi throughout the villa

    Skyridge villa star gazing
    Enjoy colorful sunsets, moon rises and stargazing from the decks at Skyridge villa on St. John
  • A “dark sky area”  - turn the lights out, give yourself 20 minutes to get your full night vision and use a star app or a satellite tracking app to see the space station pass by!  During the full moon in December and July, as you drive Cereus Corner, look for large yellow buds about to open – Giant Night Blooming Cereus. They open about 9:30pm and are as big as dinner plates! Blooming only one night, they are worth going out to see and photograph.
  • Binoculars are provided and there is info in the Guest Book on apps to download of special interest, like Boats, Airplanes, Satellites and Star apps.
  • Island wildlife includes numerous bird species and strangely enough, deer, goats, sheep and donkeys. They are descendants left from earlier settlers or belong to an islander who lets them wander loose until needed.  Iguanas, seagulls, hawks and other raptors like kestrels, and yes flamingos have been seen on island, apparently escapees from as they are tagged on their legs! Look for deer to come out of the “tunnel” to graze in the grassy on the sea side at dawn and dusk.

 

Skyridge is a non-smoking villa.

The private pool, the comfortable disposition of the house, and the magnificent views from the deck make Skyridge a terrific family vacation home.

Perfectly centrally located, Skyridge is only minutes from St. John’s North shore "top 10" voted beaches in the world for swimming or snorkeling.  Skyridge is fully equipped for your comfort and enjoyment with coolers, beach chairs and towels for you to use at the pool or the beach.

Paved roads in the exclusive Upper Carolina estate take you up up to this lovely ridge-top villa for the most incredible views.  Bordering the National Park, private and quiet Skyridge sits at almost 700 feet with large shaded decks off each bedroom slider, opening the house to mountain vistas on one side, and gorgeous panoramic views of the turquoise sea and fourteen islands on the other.

Skyridge downstairs bedroom twins

 

Paved roads in the exclusive Upper Carolina estate take you up up to this lovely ridge-top villa for the most incredible views.  Bordering the National Park, private and quiet Skyridge sits at almost 700 feet with large shaded decks off each bedroom slider, opening the house to mountain vistas on one side, and gorgeous panoramic views of the turquoise sea and fourteen islands on the other. 

All of Skyridge has recently been renovated as it was seriously damaged during Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017.  The spacious high beamed ceiling open concept areas all have new comfortable wicker furnishings and fun handmade decor. 

There are ceiling fans in every room and the cooling sea breezes flow throughout the house. Bedrooms are air conditioned if desired, but rarely needed in this glorious tree top location. A laundry with washer and dryer is on site for guest's use and the house is fully stocked with bed linens and towels.

Or head to the "laid back" ambiance of Coral Bay, only five minutes aay.  Coral Bay has recently built up from the sailing community it used to be and now features quite a few nice restaurants and shopping, including several markets like  “Love City” mini mart and Dolphin Market. And Coral Bay’s world famous “Skinny Legs” beach bar is still voted the best “Cheeseburger in Paradise” … or just order a delicious pizza to take back to Skyridge's deck. The “big town” of Cruz Bay with all of its offerings is only 15 minutes away.  Or why not hit the deck hammock with a book for a nap?

The large handmade wormy chestnut table for 8 is great for dining inside or playing games.  Skyridge's TV console is fully stocked with games - from poker supplies, board games, to puzzles!  The deck overlooking the Bordeaux Mountain and the pool on this side has completely shaded outside seating too.

The fully equipped top floor kitchen has new appliances and everything you'll need for cooking any of your meals "at home!"  Stainless-steel refrigerator, oven, cook top range and oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, blender and coffeemaker.  Wi-fi is provided property wise for keeping up with business and friends and a desk area with printer is in one bedroom. There is also a poolside gas barbeque that is perfect for grilling and dining by the pool.

Comfortable chairs on the ocean side are perfect for some of the best views and breezes in the Caribbean.  Sitting here and watching the birds and hundreds of sailboats that navigate the Sir Francis Drake Channel daily is a peaceful and entertaining experience, so be sure to bring your binoculars and camera!  You never know what you will see . . .  In our guestbook we have a list of apps for stargazing, locating the space shuttle, tracking boats or the planes that pass high overhead going to Road Town Airport in the British Virgin Islands.

The house is situated perfectly for breezes and for beautiful sunrise and sunset color, but not the glaring heat one would get if directly facing west or east.  Happy hour on the shaded decks on either side with tropical rum blender drinks is not be missed! 

Hawks can be seen hunting in the park and yellow and black bananaquits and four varieties of hummingbirds visit the property daily.

A “Dark Sky” areas, the night brings countless stars and the lovely lights of homes and even car lights on Tortola and Jost Van Dyke and the lit-up masts of moored ships across at Soper’s Hole on Tortola.  If you happen to be here during a full moon, seeing it light up the sea as it rises over the Sir Francis Drake channel is an unforgettable experience!

Located off the top floor Great Room are two bedrooms, each with a private bath featuring a wonderful outdoor shower area with a spectacular view of the ocean and stars.  Although tree-top Skyridge is usually nice and cool, each bedroom can be air-conditioned separately.  Everything you need is already here - linens, hair dryers, beach chairs and towels, even iron and ironing board!

The west bedroom has a comfortable new memory foam king bed facing the large slider door to the deck and the ocean, and an en-suite large double sink bathroom with outdoor shower facing the sea. 

The east bedroom has a large slider door to the deck with ocean views also and a new queen memory foam bed.  A private single bathroom features an outdoor shower facing the pool and Bordeaux  mountain.

Although usually pleasingly cool with wonderful breezes, each bedroom can be air-conditioned also.

The Great Room's sliding doors let in the wonderful breezes and lead to more comfortable shaded deck with panoramic views of the sea, the British Virgin Islands and the flowering gardens.

The lush one-half acre professionally landscaped garden is home to many birds and is constantly in bloom with tropical plants including bougainvillea, gardenia, hibiscus, and bird of paradise.  Pick your own bananas, papaya, mango, coconuts, soursop, guava and limes from the fruit trees in season!

The decorative turquoise glass tile pool with turtle mosaic is one of the most relaxing on St. John and now is salt-conditioned for your skin comfort. Beautiful Bordeaux mountain and valley views by day here and countless stars and lights by night.  The large tiled patio around it features a gas barbeque grill and lounge furniture for sun bathing.  It is quiet and private, surrounded by banana, soursop and palm trees.  For visits to the magnificent beaches ten minutes away, there are beach chairs, coolers and beach towels.  A carport shower and beach gear table are garden level for sand rinses after a day at the beach.

This rental home was designed to please all your senses and provide a home-away-from-home for your outstanding St. John "Love City" vacation. Please enjoy and come again soon!

For the best views that St. John has to offer and quality, unforgettable vacation accommodations, Skyridge should be on the top of your list of villas to consider.
