Seaside Breeze is a spacious and easy to love beachfront villa that was added to our villa portfolio in May, 2021, after being purchased by a new owner. The house was built in 2006, and it has not been previously offered for rentals. From 2006 – 2021 Seaside Breeze was lightly used and was very well maintained by its original owner, resulting in a home that is currently in very fine condition. With 3700 sq/ft of interior space and 1740 sq/ft of exterior decks, Seaside Breeze is a roomy villa that will very comfortably accommodate 6 guests in 3 a/c bedrooms with 2.5 baths. In the summer of 2021 Seaside will be remodeled into a 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath villa for 8-10 guests, with two master bedrooms/baths, and two guest bedrooms that share a bath.
Seaside Breezes’s design incorporates some unique features, including floor to ceiling windows with two huge pentagon windows on the front and back (east and west) sides of the house. The oversized windows combine with coral stone tiled floors, an open floor plan and cedar woodwork to produce a cheerful, attractive and alluring interior. The great room includes a waterfall, which adds an enjoyable audio and visual effect. If the restful sounds of a waterfall are not your style, the blue tooth enabled audio system has 8 speakers that will distribute lively (or soothing) music throughout the great room, or to a selected zone. Seaside Breeze is insulated, which is unusual in St. John homes, and this helps keep the house comfy and cool.
Seaside Breeze’s single best feature is probably its location. You are just a few steps from a sandy beach and the 82 degree, crystal clear waters of the Caribbean – where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, paddle board or go boating – in your front yard.

Living And Dining: With its bold 30 foot cathedral ceiling, huge pentagon windows running fore and aft, and its wide expanse of white coral stone floors, the great room of Seaside Breeze is pretty to look at and even better to live in. The living room opens to the deck and is located on the left side of the great room. It contains a 50” TV with surround sound, plus a stereo system with blue tooth and 8 zoned speakers that are placed throughout the great room. These photos show the current furniture layout, and in the summer of 2021 both the furniture and photos will be updated.
There are four dining areas, with the primary dining room located on the right side of the great room and also opening to the pool deck. The gas BBQ grill is conveniently located just outside the interior dining room, and almost within reach of the dining table on the deck. There is a third dining table in the middle of the great room, and a mahogany bar off the kitchen also has seating for six.
Kitchen: The little used kitchen is clean, modern and very well equipped for home cooked meals, or if you prefer, hire a private chef to treat you to some culinary delights. The kitchen includes mahogany counter-tops, with white cabinets and drawers filled with cookware and dinnerware. Stainless steel appliances include a cooktop stove and oven and a refrigerator/freezer with water and ice dispensers, a microwave and a toaster oven, coffeemaker and other gadgets and kitchen tools. A washer/dryer is conveniently located within the kitchen.
Bedroom Details: The current 3 bedroom layout includes a master bedroom (king) with a full bath, and two guest bedrooms (king convert to two twin beds, full-size trundle bed) that share a bath, with an additional half bath on the lower level. All the bedrooms have a/c and 42” TVs, and they open to a balcony with water views.
In the summer of 2021 the bedroom layout will change and the photos will be updated to show two a/c master bedrooms with baths, plus 2 a/c guest bedrooms that will share a bath.
Seaside Breeze is indeed seaside, located on the beach at Johnson Bay – a quiet cove carved out of Coral Bay on the southern coast of St. John. In front of your villa there is a small, reef protected sand beach that invites all kinds of water sports and activities. The lovely views look at Coral Bay and the east end of St John, with the British Virgin Islands and 1700’ Mt Sage on Tortola rising out of the background.
Seaside Breeze faces east and the pool, sun deck and sand beach are bathed in sunshine for most of the day. The trade winds are partially blocked so they usually blow mild yet refreshingly cool which provides perfect weather for outdoor activities. There are only four villas along the beach at Johnson Bay, and the thick vegetation between Seaside Breeze and the villa on your right provides a good privacy screen, while on the left side of your house an undeveloped lot that is owned by the homeowner’s association also provides a good privacy screen.
It’s a 25-30 minute drive into Cruz Bay, and a 4-10 minute drive to the restaurants, bars and groceries in Coral Bay, a 15-20 minute drive to the Park beaches located along the north shore, and a 5-10 minute drive to the two Park beaches (Lameshur Bay and Salt Pond) in Coral Bay.

Most of St. John's beaches are within the National Park, which results in only a few beachfront properties available for vacation rentals, and these tend to be quite pricey. Seaside Breeze is one of the lucky ones, with swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and powerboating available in your sandy front yard, at a reasonable price.
Even if Seaside Breeze was located in the interior of St. John we are certain that it would be a popular rental villa because it has all the essentials of a great vacation home – a pool with large decks, a cozy screened in gazebo, a spacious and stylish interior that includes floor to ceiling windows, comfortable furnishings and quality appointments, an attractive and well equipped kitchen, an 8-speaker zoned audio system, a/c bedrooms with balconies, and lovely views of turquoise seas, distant islands and blazing sun rises.
We have managed Seaside Breeze’s neighbor for 25 years and guests tell us again and again that this sweet little cove in Coral Bay is one of those wonderful spots where you actually become detached from "the other world." You could spend a week here and hardly ever drive into Cruz Bay, just because you enjoy being where you are. Guests often make plans to go into town, but then the day melts into evening and the stars come out and moonlight sparkles on the water, the soft trade winds caress your skin, the sweet smell of the sea captures you, the gentle sounds of small waves entrance you, the grill fires up and the bar opens up, and Cruz Bay becomes part of that other world - because you’re perfectly content where you are, and there is magic here.
