Welcome to Windwardside, an elegant retreat with lovely furnishings, a beautiful view and lush tropical gardens. It is the most intimate and traditional of all of our homes In Coral Bay.

About Susan
My husband Paul and I are long term residents of St. John. We love to travel and our travel almost always focuses on finding beautiful natural surroundings. My husband (a retired builder on the island) and I designed Windwardside and Sago Cottage (calabash Cottages) with the intention of providing that to like minded guests. We care very much about preserving the beauty of Coral Bay. An import ... more +

Paradiso con vista su Coral Bay!!
Date of Stay: March 6th , 2016

Sono stato per una settimana di vacanza con tre amici e non avremmo voluto andarcene più!!! La vista e' stupenda e la casa, suddivisa in tre edifici, quindi con la massima privacy, lo e' altrettanto! Ogni sera al rientro dal mare ( e che mare ) ci si rilassava nella Jacuzzy ( ce ne sono addirittura due!) con un drink! E non ci sono vicini o rumori se non quelli degli uccellini! Fantastica vacanza!!! Serve una jeep per raggiungerla, ma sull'isola tutti affittano Jeep!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Andrea. I enjoyed meeting you. I have just enough Italian to understand most of it. So glad that after such a long trip Windwardside did not disappoint!

Perfect Oasis
Date of Stay: January 31st , 2016

This was the 3rd time we stayed with Calabash Cottages, and this one certainly did not disappoint! All of the standards are high and constant! The personal service, quality of the villa, and obviously the views! It all comes down to location, location, location, and we love that the cottages are far from the hustle and bustle, you get a touch of nature with the birds, lizards, butterflies, and yes even the spiders! Some days we didn't even feel the need to leave our little oasis on the mountain. Thank you to Susan and her team!

Windward Side
Date of Stay: March 16th , 2014

This villa is absolutely beautiful! The views from every window are outstanding and we especially loved the outdoor shower. The property is very clean and very private...a perfect spot. Susan & Diane are great and make sure everything goes smoothly from the pick up at the airport, car rental and meet and greet. I highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a luxurious spot to relax. We will definitely rent here again and again.

Stay here if ya wanna have an amazing adventure!
Date of Stay: September 28th , 2014

It has taken me a bit to get on here and leave my review..mainly because I miss this place so much. It is truly breath taking,gorgeous,romantic,adventurous,charming,convienent, spaciousand almost perfection! My husband and I loved the drive up because it was just fun and felt like we were staying off the beaten path. I seriously miss how I would laugh going down the hill, and after the first day my husband was a pro driving up and down. Bottom line, if you want one of those high up gorgeous views, you have to stay up in the hill tops to get those amazing pictures! And trust me this is the place to stay! The grounds are just , wow. All the flowers and greenery made you feel like you were in the jungle. I loved waking up every morning and drinking coffee on the porch , staring at the rising sun and being in awe of the views. There are bugs here though, so be mindful...staying here is being closer to nature and if you are looking for a high end resort feel I would go blow your money at the hilton...but if you want a fantastic deal for what you get and to be surrounded by absolute nature with still outstanding natural luxury experience, then please stay here! It made our trip so much fun staying on the more private side of the island. Yes there is alot to do on the boat dock side, but this side of the island has so much more breathing room...you can visit beaches that have nobody on them , seriously ! And there is a great conveince store right before you turn into the neighborhood, it just opened last year and the owner is a really great guy. He actually has an IOU system...so when I forgot my money he let me take my groceries as long as I would pay him back before out trip ended ( I did duh lol ) ...cannot find that in Texas anywhere! And besides that there are some great resturants, but Aqua Bistro was our favorite. We ate there 4 times and loved it everytime. And the drive to the other side of the island is just absolutly fun..at first we would drive thru the middle but after a few days we switched to the right side of island, going along the beaches...get to know your maps and do it both ways, it really is a great drive across....and please plan your beach visits accordingly. I made a loose schedule for each day ( it may have been laminated ) and by doing so we were able to visit and enjoy SO many beaches...also I highly recommend going in off season...yes some resturants will be closed, but you will be on a island that feels almost empty and that is a really amazing feeling.... it made it more romantic, less stressful ...and easier driving cause there was almost no traffic! ...back to this property.... it is wonderful...tree frogs at nightime, the outdoor shower which is so beautiful , the huge courtyard, the hot tub we spent everynight in (we rigged our laptop and set it on chair and watched movies every night out there ) , the full sized kitchen was such a plus....and the absolute best part was the customer service from the managment team!! Please I urge you if you stay here ( you really should do this anywhere you stay) and have any issue contact them and I promise you these guys will be there to fix or help out in any way. We had one small issue and literally in an hour I recieved a phone call (in suite landline) and they were on it immediatly. Truly great group of managment and because of this place and their team my husband and I had an amazing wedding anniversary week...it was just perfect in so many ways and I tear up thinking about it !! P.S I am adding pictures of not only the grounds but also some of the beaches, so that you can see what the beaches look like during off season...I will trade in every resturant being open for peopless beaches any day! Makes for much better pictures ; )

Everything we could have dreamed!
Date of Stay: January 25th , 2015

My husband and I just spent a week at Windwardside Cottage for our honeymoon. We decided on this villa because of the wonderful reviews, the detailed description and the wonderful things we had heard about the island of St. John. Additionally, we decided that the quiet Coral Bay side of the island would fit us better than Cruz Bay. Well, I can say that it is absolutely a gem. The villa is everything you see in the pictures! The lush landscaping, the privacy, the lovely hot tub, all of the balcony and deck options. We started every day by having a cup of coffee on the balcony off the kitchen which has amazing views in the morning, and all day! Then, we would make our plan for the day. We so enjoyed Salt Pond Bay that we spent 3 of our 7 days there. The Ram Head Trail hike that starts at the end of that beach has such beautiful views and is just long to feel like we got a little work out in and earned our beach time. We loved using all the of the supplies that the house had-- beach chairs, cooler, etc. We would then make our way back home, shower and either cook at the house and soak in the hot tub or meander to one of the restaurants around Coral Bay. The food on that side of the island is VERY casual. Aqua Bistro has some nice fish options. But in order to get a fancier meal, you will need to make you way to Cruz Bay, which is not a big deal at all. We loved Morgan's Mango. Besides Salt Pond Bay, the other beach we really loved was Cinnamon Bay. It has everything you could want to spend the day. We went for the little walk around the ruins before we went to the beach. You can rent kayaks or any other water equipment. There is also a small store and a restaurant with sandwiches burgers etc. It wasn't crowded, and the beach was spectacular. There is nothing bad to say about Windwardside or St. John in general. We did have one maintenance issue, but it was addressed and fixed within the hour. The only challenge is the drive up to the house. And it really is a challenge. Other reviews have described it as steep or bumpy. And that is an understatement. It is super bumpy! It is completely worth it, but I wish someone had described it more because we were kind of shocked the first time we did it.
