Holiday Rental House
Estate Fortsberg is situated in a very special and private location on the south side of St. John, just outside the wonderfully charming and quaint hamlet of Coral Bay. The house sits on a promontory of land within the National Park boundaries, overlooking Hurricane Hole and Coral Bay, at an elevation of 260 feet on historic Fortsberg Mountain. The views from the pool deck are epic and serene. The home encompasses 270 degree views with every window offering breathtaking private views. The thoughtful design of this villa makes it possible to rent it as a four-bedroom house, with all rooms open, or alternatively as a two-bedroom property for one or two couples seeking solitude and luxury. Early risers will be delighted by the gorgeous sunrises to the east.

The thoughtful design of this villa makes it possible to rent it as a four-bedroom house, with all rooms open, or alternatively as a two-bedroom property for one or two couples seeking solitude and luxury. Early risers will be delighted by the gorgeous sunrises to the east. In the evening of the full moon phase, Estate Fortsberg affords phenomenal views of the moonrise. Look northward to the towering island of Tortola and Southeast to distant Norman Island. The pool deck at Estate Fortsberg is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and dining areas. There is full sun, shade, and breeze in this idyllic spot. Estate Fortsberg is appointed with high end mahogany furniture of the West Indian tradition, including unique four poster beds and hand carved tables. In the Caribbean tradition, the great room is the house center. There is a gourmet kitchen, dining room and large living area complete with a wet bar. The dining area, just off of the kitchen and island, is a formal and sheltered setting for meals. Another dining area is just outside the large doors on the pool deck, with sweeping private views all around. The home was designed with 4 master bedrooms complete with full baths, each with its own private outdoor stone shower. On the first level, it has a large waterside granite patio with a roofed porch that extends the complete length of the house, offering reprieve from the bright Caribbean sun. The lower level includes a beautifully landscaped courtyard, private balconies off each bedroom, and a large covered deck area complete with ping pong and the traditional Soggy Dollar ring toss game. West bedroom with king sized bed on lower level East lower level bedroom has two twin beds that can be made into a king sized bed. More
