About the neighbourhood
Calicaribe is located in the private community of Contant Farms, in Contant Estates, just outside of Cruz Bay, St. John, US Virgin Islands. The property address is 15A-11 Contant Estates. To drive to Calicaribe, go to the round-a-bout in Cruz Bay, and head south on highway 20, towards the Westin Resort. Take a right just past Star Fish market, in front of the basketball courts. Go to the top of Contant mountain, and turn left on the private concrete road ( Contant Farms ). Calicaribe is the first concrete driveway on your right. The villa enjoys a western orientation, which provides fabulous, panoramic views of the Caribbean sea and sunsets. This is one of the best views on island !
How to get there
To travel to St John, fly into St Thomas. Take a taxi to the Red Hook ferry dock. The ferry leaves every hour, on the hour. No reservations are required. The ferry takes about 15 minutes to reach the St John ferry dock. Once you arrive on St John, a greeter from Calicaribe will meet you and take you to the home, which is only about a 5 minute drive. Jeep rentals are available in Cruz Bay , and should be reserved prior to arrival. We recommend Cool Breeze Jeep Rentals, which is a short walk from the St John ferry dock.
