St John Island is a precious gem in the Antilles necklace, two-thirds National Park.
Castle St John is a private hideaway within the Park boundaries.

On a windswept mountaintop, this Caribbean villa enjoys the most extraordinary seascape.

A spirited affordable island getaway, with two very separate bedrooms, king and queen, each with adjoining full baths.
Besides the fully-equipped, modern kitchen and mahogany great room, there is a tiled outdoor shower, expansive decks and balconies, an observatory sundeck with giant chess on the fifth level, and a whirlpool spa nestled in a tropical garden.

Equipped with full linens and cookware, gas outdoor grill, internet WIFI, cable TV, beach towels and chairs, as well as native drums, and a hammock deck.
