Charm of a Caribbean Cottage Awaits at Treefrog

While a sprawling villa fits just the bill for large families looking for a second abode or a serious rental investment, anyone who prefers quaint over scale should not miss Treefrog.

An absolutely charming Caribbean cottage set amid the lush, tropical northern ridge of Bordeaux Mountain, Treefrog would be ideal for a young couple and is already a popular short term rental property, explained Holiday Homes sales agent Sandra Mohler.

“Treefrog would be a great home for someone who lives on St. John, or likes to visit, and would benefit from having the house rented when not in residence,” she said. “It has a good short term rental history with rave reviews from guests.”

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom masonry home is listed on the St. John MLS for $439,000 and is located in the Coral Bay area with sweeping views of the British Virgin Islands. Treefrog has two stories, with the living areas upstairs and the bedroom on the lower level, explained Mohler.

“The entry to the home is on the upper level which leads to the open-concept kitchen, dinning and living rooms,” she said. “The stairs down lead to the bedroom and bathroom, where you’ll also find an inviting sitting room.”

Both levels are surrounded by expansive decks, most on the shady north side of the home. Inside, the kitchen is outfitted with beautiful hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, while hardwood floors are found throughout the well-appointed home.

Located on a quiet side road off Bordeaux Mt. Road (Route 108), Treefrog is ideally located close enough to restaurants and shopping to be convenient, but far enough away to offer tranquility, according to Mohler.

“The setting is very tranquil with enough distance from the main roads and town to allow for a peaceful retreat, surrounded by tropical gardens,” said the Holiday Homes sales agent. “Treefrog has beautiful tropical landscaping in a very private yard on a quiet side road off Bordeaux Road. The road is great for walking, with no traffic, great views, and cooling breezes.”

From its perch overlooking Coral Bay harbor below, Treefrog offers sweeping views of the British Virgin Islands, all they way up the Sir Francis Drake Passage as far as Virgin Gorda.

Cooling breezes and tropical landscaping combined with modern decor and solid construction, makes Treefrog the perfect home for anyone desiring the ideal Caribbean cottage.
