As you drive along Centerline Road and approach the Bordeaux Mountain overlook, you take a left onto a newly paved road and drive through the dense subtropical rainforest on the top of Bordeaux Mountain. After about a mile you reach Orchid Knoll and are rewarded with some of the most spectacular views, undisturbed privacy and natural beauty available on St John. If you have a sense of adventure and a desire to get away from it all, and if you long to try something a little bit off the beaten path, then Orchid Knoll will reward you. If you worship the quiet splendors of nature, dazzling sunrises and sunsets and nights meant for stargazing, but also want a modern, well equipped and comfortable home, you'll love this villa. This very private and romantic mountain top villa is ideal for honeymooners and other lovers, but we also recommend this unique home for adventuresome families, tan all over sun worshippers, or anyone seeking undisturbed peace and quiet.
If Orchid Knoll is not available, we have also have Summerwind (4 bedroom) and Bordeaux Breeze (2 bedroom). Both are located on Bordeaux Mountain and are just as peaceful and private.

- March 2019 - We have just returned from 10 days of island living at Orchid Knoll, this is our 4th or 5th time of having stayed high a top Bordeaux Mt. at this villa, we had visited the location in Feb. 2018 to see
what damage it had received from the hurricanes and it was extensive. The owners have done a marvelous job of restoring and rebuilding this wonderful home. It was just like we had remembered from our last visit there, our thanks goes out to the owners for rebuilding this wonderful home.
If one is looking for solitude and a view of the islands then this is your place, it may not be for everyone if you need activity around you as there is nothing but the quite sounds of the island breezes and nature each and every day. The nights are filled with the sounds of nature at its best.
Orchid Knoll has all one needs to make a trip here most enjoyable, the pool area is a nice reprieve each and every day if you are coming back from the beach, the kitchen is equipped for you to prepare most anything you desire. One should know that the nights high a top Bordeaux Mt. can be very cool at times, however there is a fireplace if you need it. The owner has an incredible library of classical music that is an added treat.
We will return to this magical spot high a top St. John, for us it fulfills the very reason we continue to love this island.
Caribbean Villas of St. John is a top of the line company that will meet your every needs when it comes to renting a place on St. John, the staff both on island and off know what they are doing and will make sure your stay is one you will not forget. You can trust them. “
