Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Cruz Bay - Eleah's Garden

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We invite you to enjoy our little piece of paradise. The property was named for our daughter. We started planting the gardens on the property when she was born and have added more every year. There are many fruit trees and depending on the season, feel free to harvest from them. As you look around the property you will see mangos, bananas, papayas, lemons, limes, avocados, coconuts and many tropical flowering and hardwood trees.

We are centrally located, town and beaches are 5-10 minutes away, close enough to be convenient but far enough to be away from the crowds.

The view from the deck is gorgeous. The night sky is incredible! It may be the best view you have ever seen, from the North Star through the Milky Way to the Southern Cross! Often you will see a shooting star. Don't forget to make a wish! Soak in the hot tub and let all your stress disappear!

Eleah's Garden is a kid friendly place. We have toys, games and books in the house for children to enjoy. Outside we have a basketball hoop. Remember that whoever knocks the ball down the hill has to go get it!

Relax and enjoy the view from the deck or venture into the yard to watch the fish in the pond or lounge in the hammock. Something for everyone!

About Sheri

David andI built the house ourselves and lived there with our 3 children for 15 years. Our middle child was born in the house. We have many fantastic memories of our time on St. John. St. John is a magical place and we get there every chance we can.

Sheri

Sheri purchased this house in 1994

Why Sheri chose St John

To get away from the cold and be near the beautiful beaches and water.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the world class beaches and SCUBA diving. We often picnic at the beach. We love to hike the trails and explore the island.

This place was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrivedat Eleah's Garden,our "Home away from Home".

We were visiting our daughter who was working at The Gifft Hill school.

The location was perfect for this.Everything was provided at the villa, especially cooking facilities as our daughter wanted to sit down as a family for part of the meals togeather.

Our daughters ran the annual 8 mile run and ended up getting very muddy. Was so nice to have the laundrey facilities (open air no less) to take care of the mess.

The owners take great pride to keep the facilities well maintained in top working condition and very clean. They are also perfect hosts and know most everything about the island. If there is a place you are looking for they know where it is or an activity they know the who-where & when that you are looking for.

We rented a car and had a flat tire one morning. In no time it was aired up (with their air compressor) and we were directed where to drive to get it fixed. Made a big problem into a very small problem that was over in less than an hour.

Everything exceeded our expectationsn and would love to go back.

We highly recommend Eleah's Garden.

Beyond great!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation! We had such a great time on St. John and were beyond happy with Eleah's Garden. From the moment we arrived we felt we had arrived in paradise. One of the owners, David, greeted us at the house on our arrival to ensure that we had everything we needed. The place was IMMACULATE! The deck was amazing and we spent every morning and evening listening to the tree frogs and watching the geckos scamper. The kitchen was very well equipped and all the little things like towels, movies for the dvd player,a blender for frozen drinks and chairs for the beach were provided. Bed was super comfy and ceiling fans were more than sufficient for the occasional warm night (but with those wonderful ocean breezes it was great to just leave all the windows open!). I have stayed in many places on St. John but I have to say that this central location was my favorite place to stay. Only five minutes to town and beaches! We didn't want to leave. Every day we hiked, went to the beach and had great meals (either eating in or out). I highly recommend this rental and anxiously look forward to a LONGER stay next year!!

The perfect rental for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family and guests of six on the island. The price was within our budget and the location was an easy access to town and beaches (with a rental car). We were initially concerned about the lack of air conditioning in the summer, but found the evening and nights very comfortable with the ceiling fans and breezes from the hill top (we were at the beaches in the afternoon).

The property was as described.

I would recommend this rental to anyone!

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great rental property for a relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was a well taken care of property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hot tub was refreshing at night and the beds were comfortable. A great property and a great value. There is plenty of room in the house and had an onsite property manager which is convenient. The property is a bit of a distance to town and the north side beaches, however if you rent a car (about $550 for a week), this isn't a problem at all. By car, Cruz Bay is only a five minute ride away, North Side beaches are only about 15 minutes away, and Coral Bay is a 15 minute ride. The property is right off of Centerline Road which goes right into town. Great place and I would recommend it to anyone!

paradise

  • 5 of 5

With my grandchildren we had a wonderful stay for 10 days at Eleah's Garden--breakfast on the deck with breezes and ocean view, starry nights from the hot tub/deck, short drives to Hawksnest or Trunk.

Comfortable beds, good cooking facilities, and laundry available made it really a vacation, even with kids along!

Grumpy with snow on the ground

  • 5 of 5

Eleah's Garden is a nice place! We enjoyed our stay on Gifft hill with quite a few dinner party/cookouts on the deck. The view is awesome and once the sun set the stars were incrediable. We saw the north star and the southern cross while hot tubbing. I have never seen the milky way so bright. We went to a couple of the old sugar mills at night also and the night sky was so cool.The house is simple,clean and comfortable and we will come again. Grumpy until I get back and have a rum punch on the deck!!
