On The Market: Calabash Boom Cottages Offer Unobstructed Views


Enjoy sweeping water views, above and below, from these two Calabash Boom cottages.

Perched on a lush hillside on the quiet side of St. John, the views from the Calabash Boom cottages will make you want to linger on your deck all day.

These two private cottages are each one-bedroom and one bathroom, are for sale for $675,000, and offer plenty of opportunities for a home buyer, explained Islandia Real Estate sales associate Lynn Giovanna.

“Enjoy extraordinary unobstructed views of Coral Bay, East End, Tortola, the British Virgin Islands chain and beyond from these two, well-appointed one bedroom cottages,” said Giovanna. “The cottages are located in Calabash Boom with lush landscaping throughout. Both cottages are currently income producing short term rentals, or you can live in one while you rent out the other.”

Located on a quiet, dead-end road, the two cottages are privately situated on a 0.23-acre parcel of land with plenty of space to install a luxurious hot tub or even a refreshing swimming pool, Giovanna explained.

“These cottages are privately situated on 0.231-acre of land and have a lot to offer,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate. “There is room to add a main house, pool and even a hot tub. Or, simply leave it as is, and enjoy plenty of green space.”

There are even architectural plans already completed for a two bedroom and three bathroom main house, for a buyer interested in expanding, Giovanna added.

The main cottage is called “Giovanna’s Giardino Al Mare” (Joanne’s Garden at Sea),  and currently enjoys robust short-term rental bookings. The masonry cottage, built in 2007, can accommodate up to four people.

“There is a bedroom and bathroom on the lower level and a Queen sofa is found in the main living area,” Giovanna said. “There is also a kitchen and bathroom on the upper level.”

Details in Joanne’s Garden at Sea include Cyprus ceilings throughout, extensive decks offering breath-taking views, native rock features and an attached outdoor, screened showers.

The upper wooden cottage, completed in 2009, is called “Francesco Sorride In Mare” (Francesco Smiles at Sea), It too is a popular short-term rental, Giovanna explained.

“This small, comfortable one bedroom cottage sleeps two and offers big views,” she said. “The cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen and new appliances as well as an interior bathroom with a private, outdoor mason and stucco shower.”

“Sliding glass doors in the bedroom/living room area open to a deck where you can relax and read in the sun or barbeque and dine outdoors while enjoying the views and trade winds,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate. “The deck has a rattan loveseat, marble table for two with benches and a gas barbeque for grilling.”

The buyer of these cottages won’t even have to purchase furnishings, Giovanna added.

“The cottages are both being sold furnished with lovely furnishings and a fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, as well as indoor and outdoor dining or barbecue on the deck,” she said.
