On the Market: Dove Cottage Offers Eco-Friendly Living in Luxury


Enjoy stylish eco-consciousness with stunning views at Dove Cottage in Estate Hansen Bay.

Dove Cottage combines refined Caribbean living and commanding views with the latest in eco-friendly design, without skimping on luxury.

This two bedroom, one and a half bath villa located in Estate Hansen Bay is for sale for $1.75 million, explained Islandia Real Estate broker associate Karye Carney.

Dove Cottage is nestled on a knoll with dual bay views to the British Virgin Islands and Sir Francis Drake Channel to the north and St. Croix to the south.

Located on the remote East End of St. John, Dove Cottage truly feels a world away from it all, yet is only a few minutes drive to the charming town of Coral Bay, explained Carney.

“What’s cool about the property is its remote location with spellbinding views, but with easy paved road access and located just 15 minutes from restaurants, grocery store and shops in Coral Bay,” said the Islandia Real Estate broker associate. “The level site is spectacular and allows for further expansion of the existing home. Dove Cottage is also one of the first eco-luxury vacation rentals with solar power on St. John.”

The home was carefully designed by the owner to maximize views and breezes, while ensuring harmony with the environment. A dramatic infinity edge pool, an expansive deck and several patios and balconies help to blend indoor and outdoor living at Dove Cottage.

The master bedroom is found upstairs with a large screened porch offering a bird’s eye view of the pool and patio deck. Soak up the views and relish in the cooling trade winds from the upstairs master bedroom, complete with custom mahogany pocket doors.

Downstairs find an open-plan great room with an exposed beam ceiling. The main living area encapsulates a comfortable living room, elegant dining room and a casual kitchen. A guest bedroom and a half bath are also located on the lower level.

Step from the charming great room outside to the spacious patio and pool area. Nearby a gently sloped garden area beckons for an afternoon with a good book.

With loungers, daybeds and hammocks found around the half-acre property, Dove Cottage invites you to relax in style, while feeling good about the home’s solar panels, low-flush toilets and rainwater recycling process.
