In the style of a Greek Amphitheater, Doric columns and grand archways lead to a 50 foot pool. As at Cinnamon Bay Estate the views from Coco de Mer are truly some of the most stunning views of natural, tropical beauty anywhere on St. John and anywhere in the world.
NORTH SHORE SETTING. Villa Coco De Mer is located in the upper row of ulta luxury homes that stretch across the exclusive north shore neighborhood of Peter Bay. It is about a 5-minute walk from your villa to the white sands and turquoise waters of Peter Bay Beach. Peter Bay is one of the few parcels of pristine north shore land that was not deeded over to the National Park by Lawrence Rockefeller in the 1950s, and today it remains tranquil, peaceful, private and exceptionally scenic, surrounded as it is on all sides by National Park forests, waters and reefs.
The Peter Bay gated community homes all have deeded access to intimate Peter Bay Beach, which is located between the National Park beaches of Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay, and is very similar to these world class, exceptionally beautiful beaches. The fine white sand and usually calm turquoise waters of this exquisite beach provide tranquil swimming and excellent snorkeling. On a perfect beach day in February the National park beaches will host hundreds of people, but it's rare to see even a handful of people on Peter Bay (it's privately owned). The gorgeous views from Coco De Mer look north and east and include the lush mountains of the north shore of St. John, Cinnamon, Maho and Francis Bays, Whistling Cay, and Great Thatch and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. It's a 5-10 minute, incredibly picturesque drive to the three restaurants at the acclaimed Caneel Bay Resort, and another 5-10 minute drive to the captivating restaurants, shops and groceries in the fun loving, delightful town of Cruz Bay.
The Coco de Mer grounds consist of three structures . The Great House (left), a Guest Pavilion (right) , and a private Guest Cottage to the left of the Great House.

COCO DE MER SUMMARY. Coco de Mer has a dual personality that gives it a popular appeal. For those who need to relax in the sun and do nothing, the sunny, open decks, outdoor speakers, oversized pool and peaceful setting make for luxurious relaxation within a magnificent setting of tropical natural beauty. For the active lifestyle, St. John's world-class beaches and hiking trails, and water sports activities - including scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, motor yachting, deep sea fishing, and USVI & BVI island excursions - offer all the adventure that hours in a day will allow. This is truly a magnet villa. It is so accommodating, luxurious and enjoyable that you have little reason or desire to leave the house - it holds you in place like a magnet. But St. John, with its hiking trails, reefs, beaches, boating and exploring, and the delightful shops, restaurants, people and atmosphere of Cruz Bay, give you plenty of reasons to leave your villa.
This gorgeous home was designed to accommodate guests in near equal luxury and comfort. Coco de Mer is a 5 bedroom home that gives 5 couples plenty of privacy and space, while also providing elegant and relaxing common areas for everyone to be together. With the amphitheater overlooking the pool and the gorgeous north shore views, this is also a home that is designed for, and highly recommended for functions such as weddings or parties.
Coco De Mer is beautifully and abundantly landscaped and the tropical landscaping and the upper tier location give Coco a sense of privacy and seclusion, yet the delights of Cruz Bay are only a 10-15 minute drive and the restaurants at the renown Caneel Bay Resort are an even closer, 5-10 minute drive - of course, depending on how often you stop to gaze at the truly spectacular and dramatic views. Coco de Mer is a 5 star villa highly recommended for families, couples, groups, business meetings and events, and weddings.
