Wild Jasmine is located on the East End of St John in the Hansen Bay area. The home is about a 45- 50 minute drive on paved roads from Cruz Bay and about a 12 minute drive from the center of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is the sleepier side of St John, but don’t let this fool you. This area still has plenty to offer. There are several small grocery stores (Dolphin, Calabash and Love City Mini Mart) and some fun restaurants on this side of the island. From a burger at Skinny Legs, to local Caribbean dishes at Miss Lucy’s, pizza from Salty Mongoose Pizza and Rum Bar or a Pacific Rim inspired menu with Caribbean touches at Rhumb Lines (their Cuban mojo pork is to die for!), there is something for everyone to enjoy.
For beaches, there are several within a 5 minute drive of Wild Jasmine. Go swimming and snorkeling at Hansen Bay (rent kayaks – snorkel Pelican Rock), Haulover, Saltwell Bottom (locally owned – pay to park – rent glass bottom kayaks, lounge chairs, beach umbrellas) and if you like to hike (about 30 min), there is Brown Bay Beach. You are sure to enjoy exploring these more hidden gems.
Most of all enjoy your time at Wild Jasmine. The villa is tucked in to the hillside, and enjoys west facing views. During the day, you will enjoy the magnificent and ever changing turquoise colors of the Caribbean waters and in the evenings, sit back and watch the nightly kaleidoscope of colors, including oranges, pinks, purples, yellows and blues, dancing off the water and surrounding hillsides. It is a sunset to behold.
(Though the roads are all paved to the villa, we recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle as this will allow you to explore St John to its fullest and a sedan does not do well with the ever present pot holes and sharp turns on the island.)
ST JOHN SERVICES. The St. John services for Beach Cottage will be provided by two of St. John’s best service providers. Terry (she) and Olivier (he) are a delightful St. Johnian couple who are known throughout the island for their friendly, prompt and efficient manner. You will be met at the dock, escorted to the Beach Cottage and offered all kinds of advice on where to eat and drink, shop, snorkel, be entertained, or anything else you wish to know about St. John. Terry and Olivier are a phone call away if you need them, otherwise, after they settle you in they’ll leave you alone to discover the unique joys of beachside island living.
