Notched into a beautifully-landscaped hillside and tucked behind an electronic gate, Great Turtle Villa commands sweeping views of Coral Bay, the Caribbean Sea and the emerald green hills of Bordeaux Mountain. This alluring red-roofed villa features four air-conditioned bedrooms situated in two two-story pavilions, bisected by the cool pool in between. In the west pavilion, on Great Turtle's main level, are the elegant living and dining areas, the fully-equipped kitchen, laundry closet and a powder room. Screened mahogany french doors open out from the kitchen and living areas to a newly-extended covered verandah set for alfresco dining with a view, with table and chairs, a gas grill and comfortable wicker rocking chairs for reading, cocktails and conversation, or for enjoying the cool tradewinds and the mesmerizing wide-angled vistas of sky, sea and islands. This verandah connects to the main level's second pavilion, separated for excellent privacy by a large palm tree, and to its air-conditioned Yellow Suite, a high-ceilinged king bedroom/bath suite. You'll awake on top of the world to St. John's inspiring natural beauty, seen right from your king bed through the french doors. A staircase leads from this verandah down to Great Turtle's pool level and to three more air-conditioned bedroom/bath suites, the office, and to a lush tropical rock garden which separates the villa's two poolside pavilions.
The pool features ingenious safety gates, which easily swing open or closed. Nearest the pool and garden is one pavilion offering the Green Suite, an air-conditioned queen bedroom with an ensuite bath - when you awake, a few steps will take you from your bed right to the pool for a morning swim - what a way to start another beautiful day in paradise! On the other side of the gardens and pool is Great Turtle's other poolside wing, which has a large covered deck for shady relaxation bordered by two more bedroom/bath suites with air-conditioning: the Blue Suite with a king bed (or two twin beds, if you prefer), and the queen Pink Suite. A lazy hammock hangs right outside on the verandah, and a convenient home office (equipped with a high-speed internet line with Wi-Fi for your laptop, printer, fax machine, and a handy mini-fridge and coffeemaker), is located between the Blue and Pink Suites, providing guests excellent seclusion.
Great Turtle Villa has been lovingly furnished and equipped, featuring original Caribbean art and an inviting mix of antiques and tropical furnishings. But it's that spellbinding, long-distance panorama which you'll remember, that wonderful expanse of greens and blues along a horizon dotted with palm trees, passing yachts and small cays, and that sublime peace and privacy at Great Turtle Villa - these will beckon you back again and again to this charming island hideaway. Although Great Turtle Villa's mid-island location gives you closer access to the island's beautiful North Shore beaches, you'll also enjoy nearby Coral Bay, the quieter, funky side of St. John, featuring notable waterfront eateries and bars like Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro and Donkey Diner.
4-wheel drive vehicles are recommended for Great Turtle Villa. Children over 8 years old permitted.

St. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It features beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, colorful coral and tropical fish, and green velvet hills. Two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park so the gorgeous beaches and forests will remain untouched and be accessible to everyone. Tour the national park by jeep or safari bus or hike the trails led by a park ranger. St. John is a peaceful, uncommercialized paradise yet still offers every facility and amenity that a resort has to offer. There is lots to do whether it be on land or in the water.

The St John Island region
St. John is a spectacular Virgin Island with exceptional Caribbean beaches. It's also located close to many other nearby Virgin Islands including St. Thomas, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Peter, Norman, Cooper, Beef, Frenchman's Cay, Eustatia, Prickly Pear, and Anegeda.
St. John is world known as being a luxury villas destination. Most of the accommodations on the island are privately owned villas that are available for let. St. John is well known for its well-preserved natural beauty and attractive beaches, having 60% of the island designated as National Parks. Restricted development and preservation in St. John contrasts heavily with such adjacent and more developed islands such as St. Thomas and St. Maarten. St. John is a travel and honeymoon destination with two main resorts and one of the top ten beaches in the world. The island's high level of affluence has earned it the distinction of being the "Beverly Hills of the Caribbean."
Cruz Bay Town in St. John is your ferry stop island entrance full of great restaurants, shops, places to stay, watersport outfitters, bars, and other points of attraction. Enjoy Wharfside Village, Pusser's Landing, and other funky centers.
Coral Bay, once a secluded fishing village, is home to more great restaurants, bars, and shops. About 20 minutes away from Cruz Bay by car, it's a must see part of this island paradise.
