Please note that there is construction next door to this villa. Please inquire with a Villa Specialist for more details.

On the unspoiled east end of Saint John’s, perched just 110 feet above the live coral reefs, white sands and soothing surf of Dreekets Bay, sits the tropical residence The Retreat. Among its charms, outside one bedroom pavilion is a wooden staircase that leads to a trail zigzagging all the way down to Haulover Bay.

The landscaped courtyard at The Retreat includes a pergola, lap pool, hot tub and a terrace welcoming guests into an aura of tranquil serenity swept by cooling trade winds. Its three pavilions, washed with cool green hues, are situated to overlook the sparkling panorama of Sir Francis Drake Channel with the verdant island of Tortola beyond. A hammock awaits the sway of quieter moments. The villa also features a barbeque grill. The indoors are loaded with entertainment options including electronic screening, satellite TV, a movie collection, books, and games. Wi-Fi access is complimentary.

This lovely hideaway is finished with rich slate tiles, handcrafted mahogany cabinetry and accent pieces from Guatemala, Indonesia, Burma and Thailand. High ceilings provide an airy atmosphere to the nearly alfresco interior open plan dining, living and kitchen areas. Cooking in the kitchen offers the illusion of floating on the sea.

Two air conditioned king bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms flank the main pavilion, and both offer a loft with queen size sofa beds. The baths feature romantic outdoor showers from which the spectacular views can be enjoyed in complete privacy. For additional guests, the sofa in the living area can be converted into a comfortable queen bed, with your advance request. Children aged seven years and older are welcome.

Frommer’s deems Haulover Bay one of the best snorkeling destinations on Saint John, and locals say it’s the best. Keep an eye out for frolicking dolphins or the gentle glide of a sea turtle swimming by. A few feet down the shoreline from the trail, a lovely crescent of white sand and rock beach curves around crystal clear waters, waiting for you. The Retreat offers the ideal combination of elegant luxury and relaxing seclusion. Refresh your spirit with this luxury villa’s ambience of natural harmony and peace.
