Property Description

Welcome to Sago Cottage, a charming home nestled into the hillside above Coral Bay on St. John, Virgin Islands. Sago Cottage is a traditional west Indian structure – open and airy with brightly painted shutters and covered decks overlooking a gorgeous view. From its intimate and tasteful furnishings to its private hot tub under the stars, it is the perfect spot for a romantic holiday for two. The details and amenities are designed to give our guests an experience of the West Indies of a bygone era. With the cooling breezes and the captivating view you may never want to leave this idyllic hideaway.

The covered porches were designed and furnished with comfort in mind. They hold a small dining table, reading chairs and a porch swing to while away the rare rainy afternoon. A coconut shell bird feeder attracts a delightful group of finches in the mornings. The view to the south and east is of the eastern end of St. John, the neighboring British Islands and the Caribbean Sea. This peaceful spot has unforgettable sun rises as well as moon rises.

The cozy interior of Sago Cottage has a distinctly quaint feel without sacrificing modern conveniences. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a full size dining room and a small but comfortable living room. The bedroom features a queen sized four poster mahogany bed, hand made on St. John and is a perfect place to wake up to a day in the islands. The colorful louvered shutters serve to filter the light as well as frame the ocean views throughout the cottage.
Ságo Cottage is located in a secluded hillside setting with a great deal of privacy and no nearby neighbors. The last three quarters of a mile are via bumpy dirt road but the view when you arrive will be well worth the drive. Lovely white sand beaches, including Salt Pond Bay, are just a short drive as are national park hiking trails. Restaurants, shops and watersports are all available within two miles in Coral Bay. The main town on the island, Cruz Bay, is located 8 miles away. The airport is in St. Thomas which is reached via a twenty minute ferry ride (Ferries leave every hour on the hour and cost $7 each way).

We are happy to make suggestions for activities that suit your interests. When you arrive at your cottage we will go over a map of the island and point out the best beaches, hiking trails, snorkel spots, etc. Most activities can be arranged once you are on island but if you are planning a day on the water you may want to arrange that in advance. Consider Busy Bee Charters “Lap of St. John” on Wednesday for a really fun trip that departs right from Coral Bay.

Ságo Cottage is managed by on island owners. We will meet your ferry on arrival, arrange for discounted car rentals and provide the personal attention you need to make your stay with us as pleasant and relaxing as possible. We can also arrange for a driver to meet your flight for the 50 minute ride to the Red Hook ferry dock.

My husband Paul and I are long term residents of St. John. We love to travel and our travel almost always focuses on finding beautiful natural surroundings. My husband (a retired builder on the island) and I designed Windwardside and Sago Cottage (Calabash Cottages) with the intention of providing that to like minded guests. We care very much about preserving the beauty of Coral Bay. An important part of our design process was to create homes that nestled into the hillside rather than towering over it. We are very proud of how that succeeded without sacrificing anything in terms of the view. We take a very personal interest in our guests and never want to have someone disappointed in their stay with us. We have a small and dedicated staff that shares this view. We like to have a personal conversation with all of our potential guests. if we do not feel like one of our homes is a good fit for you we will honestly let you know that. If you do decide to stay with us you can be sure we will do everything possible to make your vacation all that you hoped it would be.
