St John Cottage Rentals & Couples Getaways
How did this most romantic of St John Cottage Rentals get here in the first place you might ask? Well, many years ago, I lived in Japan and fell in love with their refined, yet simple rural structures made entirely of wood. It was here that I first learned how little space you really need to be really comfortable. So, I built this petite St John cottage rental with this concept in mind which has proven to be one of the best honeymoon destinations on St John. Just wait until you hear the gentle music of the night rain on the gracefully sloped cedar shake roof while you cuddle cozily together inside. Then wake up to another magical sunrise filtering through the trees with breakfast on the front veranda and a view that will literally knock your knickers off. This romantic honeymoon getaway was crafted by a local artisan and is one of the most unique of all St John cottage rentals.
St John Cottage Rentals for Lovers who Love Nature
The Teahouse Treehouse appeal is due in part to its natural surroundings and closeness with nature. Boasting spectacular sea views framed by the trees; because you are actually up in the trees. It’s gently curving natural stone stairway welcomes you up to its tranquil serenity. Hummingbirds and flowers flourish everywhere at eye level. One of the best honeymoon destinations in the Caribbean, it caters to romantic couples of any age who enjoy the beauty of nature. Oversized mahogany Shoji screen panel doors let light pass through by day and keep the rain out at night. Native hardwood floors, a magnificent queen size teak bed—designed to be equally comfortable for daytime lounging, an antique West Indian plantation chair, cabinet for clothes and a small writing desk. Everything you need ... and less.
Romantic Caribbean Getaway | Teahouse Treehouse
The Teahouse Treehouse is a romantic Caribbean getaway featuring all the modern amenities you expect cleverly adapted into its rustic indoor/outdoor surroundings. The under-roof teak outdoor galley kitchen faces beautifully designed native stone walls with cascading plants and flora offering a rest from the breezes. The living area inside seamlessly blends the inside with the outside—that’s because 75% of the house can be opened up to the beauty of nature at your whim by merely sliding screen aside. So cool.
Private St John Villa Rentals | Couples Getaway
Walk down a short flight of stairs past an outdoor shower and you’ll reach the garden level and a European bath and hot tub for two.

Gaze at the stars or at each other all night or day on your Honeymoon or Anniversary Caribbean style. The Travertine stone full bath features luxury European fixtures. One of the most sublime romantic getaways just for you or with someone you love. Nestled in the trees for sublime privacy, this may be the perfect private St John Cottage Rentals to start penning “that novel” you have always been meaning to write.

About Brian: General Manager
I built this little place to get away from it all - simple, yet elegant and romantic with everything you need ... and less. I lived in Japan for a while and always enjoyed this 'less is more' sense of design and clean architectural lines that blend the inside with the outside.
Brian: General Manager purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Brian: General Manager chose Estate Calabash Boom
Quite honestly, this area of St.John is one of the most sought after because of its peaceful tranquility ... and astonishing Caribbean down-island views. In fact, the New York times rated it #4 on its list of best places to go around the world in 2016. See the article: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/07/travel/places-to-visit.html?_r=1

Mooncottage never disappoints!!!!
This is our second stay at Mooncottage. Brian is an amazing host and the entire experience is incredible. A perfect place to stay!
We could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon. The views are breathtaking. The cottage is quiet and private, with coral bay being just at the bottom of the hill. It's a small space, but very efficiently designed to have everything you need to be comfortable. On top of that Brian gave us some excellent suggestions on how to spend our time on the island. Can't wait to go back!
An escape to paradise and adventure
The Teahouse Treehouse is everything the pictures show and more. There is nothing I would have changed and everything only exceeded expectations.
It was great getting to know our neighbors during the week as well: There was Suzy, who had to be the queen of the hermit crabs since she was the size of a softball and we found her milling about outside both upstairs and down; there was Tom and Jerry, two very curious birds who said hello every morning,; the air squadron as we called them, the half dozen or so hummingbirds that buzzed past us every day; the all Coral Bay Choir, aka the tree frogs that sung us to sleep and woke with us every morning and lastly the multiple species of lizards we would see on our way to the hot tub. That all said, if nature is not your thing, you may want to look elsewhere.
Bob who manages the property could not have been more helpful. He came to our rescue the first day when we experienced a flat tire and was available for advice, recommendations and guidance when ever we reached out to him. Whether you are familiar or new to the island Bob is great to have as a resource.
What I learned staying in the Treehouse. I have never had so little space, (though more than adequate), I have never had so little stuff (again, more than adequate) and staying in the treehouse with the love of my life I never felt like I had more.
Unique & Beautiful!
We had such a lovely time at the Treehouse.
We rented our jeep on St Thomas with Discount Rentals. The journey to the Treehouse was eventful & exciting driving on the "wrong" side of the road.
When we finally arrived, we were a little surprised to learn there was no AC! But Bob told us what to do to get some nice breezes at night. Super accustomed to cold air, we didn't sleep very well, but who needs sleep in paradise? We bought groceries & cooked breakfast each morning. (Be sure not to leave any food - i.e. a gorgeous pineapple - on the counter in your outdoor kitchen! The birds will find it before you awake in the morning!)
The views were outstanding & all of the details of the Treehouse made it magical. It's very immersed in nature which made for even more adventure. & its equipped with everything you need. Just bring lots of bug spray.
*our favorites: snorkeling at Water Lemon, sunset sandwiches at Maho, driving out to the East end, beaches at Trunk, food at Asolare, Extra Virgin, & Miss Lucy's. Also, the Bad Kitty Boat tour of Virgin Gorda & Jose Van Dyke was well worth the money.
In the trees with nature
The Teahouse Treehouse was great. Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful view. Unique construction. It has everything you need including Bob the caretaker/manager. Bob checks in every couple days by text to make your stay is exactly what you wanted it to be. The internet service never failed. Try it you will like it.
Amazing and relaxing honeymoon destination
This place is stunning - even better than the pictures. We can still feel the night breezes, hear the noises of the forest, and see the amazing water view that greeted us when we looked out from our bed each morning. The deck is a wonderful place to have a breakfast with a gorgeous view, and the kitchen is very well equipped, with all of the appliances and utensils you might need. The gas grill made for some delicious, simple dinners as well.
The hot tub is wonderful and perfect for romantic soaks for two under the countless stars. The hammock is also a great place to relax. We settled into a slower rhythm of life during our week in the treehouse, one where we woke with the sun, took in the beauty around us, explored wonderful St. John, and relaxed with drinks, the hot tub and sunset before sleeping wonderfully.
Finally, Brian and his team were wonderful hosts and very responsive to all of our questions. Altogether, this is a perfect romantic destination; it surpasses its description.
