Solenborg

North shore, St. John, Caribbean
Sleeps 14:  $3,000 - $10,857 / night
  • 7 Bedrooms

  • 7 Bathrooms

    (7 Ensuite)

  • Pool

Solenborg achieves a seamless blend between the manmade and the natural for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation in a breathtaking setting. This incredible St. John retreat was built by two interior designers on a hillside overlooking Denis Bay and the spectacular Sir Francis Drake Passage, and Architectural Digest called the results “dazzling.” As you travel down the historic road to this secluded luxury vacation rental, you’ll feel like you’re approaching your own private paradise.

After transferring from the airport on nearby St. Thomas to St. John, you’ll be welcomed by the resident villa manager and guided down the national park road to the property, where a cocktail reception and chef-prepared dinner await. But that’s only the beginning. You have your whole holiday to watch the sun glimmer off the two heated pools, perfect your tan on the terrace, sample local seafood from the barbecue and linger over drinks and dessert at the outdoor living and dining areas.

Clad in local granite and bronze panels, Solenborg echoes the colors of its forested surroundings. Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors further link the villa to the landscape, opening its open-plan living spaces to the terrace. The travertine tile on the terrace stretches into the great room, where multiple seating areas and a bar encourage guests to enjoy each other’s company. A cactus-root pedestal table seats fourteen in the dining area, and there’s also a breakfast bar in the fully equipped, stone-lined kitchen.

The villa’s seven bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, al-fresco showers and ocean views, are a wonderful alternative to a resort for a family reunion, a birthday celebration with a group of friends or even a gorgeous destination wedding—and the honeymoon afterwards. There are five bedrooms with king beds, including the master suite, one bedroom with a queen bed and one with two double bunk beds.

Though Solenborg was placed on U.S. Virgin Islands protected parkland and nestled deep into the landscape, it’s less than a 20-minute walk or drive from dining, shopping and local attractions. Bring your camera on the 10-minute hike up to the scenic overlook from the Peace Hill windmill and your suit on the 15-minute hike down to Jumbie Beach. There are two sets of historic ruins within a 10-minute drive, and your choice of two markets within a 15-minute drive. If you’d like to see—or do—more, the villa manager can help arrange other excursions, rental-car delivery and more.
