This floor also has a bathroom and access to the walkout, wrap-around deck with 180-degree views of Drake’s Passage and the mouth of Coral Bay. Spend your days on the deck, in the shade or sun, whatever you please.

Wrap around deck at Captain's Cabin

Enjoy the breeze from the deck or even inside through the screened in windows.

Like many tropical homes, the master bedroom is detached from the common area. But on your path, you will find wonderful amenities.

Steps to bedroom and outdoor shower.

Just down the stairs outside, there is a completely private outdoor shower and plenty of hot water.  Keep down the stairs to the totally concealed outdoor deck – an absolute favorite of our guests for sunbathing. To the side of the deck, you will find the fully air-conditioned master suite, the absolute gem of this St. John rental, Captain’s Cabin.

Built to resemble the Captain’s living quarter’s in a ship, this bedroom is cozy and inviting and features a king-size platform bed, with lots of drawer storage below.  The bed is fitted with high-quality sheets, but it is the view from the bed that will leave you stunned.  Overlooking Tortola and the British Virgin Islands, this site will never be forgotten.

Bathroom in Master Suite

To the other side is the en-suite bathroom complete with a shower with a view.

Reviews for Captain’s Cabin

As for the cottage
It is delightful! We enjoy every minute here, whether in the cottage, hiking, snorkeling, or on the beaches💦! You have thoughtfully equipped the cottage with every detail one would need, including tiny needle & thread kits! Terrific host! Terrific cottage!

A Perfect Vacation Home
Everything was better than described, but let me outline the highlights:
Although the bedroom cabin is equipped with AC, the trade winds were so delightful and constant you will never consider using it.
You may discover a friendly lizard, but there were no insects in the house; the place is sealed up tight from the screens to the caulked construction seams.
Water pressure great; always hot water.
Excellent internet connection.
Bathrooms upstairs and downstairs.
The deck and the porch…OMG.
Location ideal for all activities especially accesses to the national park.
Very, very quiet. The very best night’s sleep.
If available, I will be returning.

Flawless. Wonderful.
This is our fourth year on the island in November, and Captain’s Cabin is hands-down the best place we’ve ever stayed. The location is simply amazing, 180-degree views of the sea from the fabulous wrap-around porch with a generous breeze. Views from every window. A perfectly appointed cabin for two. My husband and I cooked at the cabin most nights, and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our quasi-foodie dinners. Non-stick pans (thank you for that, eggs are not my friend on regular pans), tongs, whisks, a huge selection of sharp knives, spatulas – you name it. We loved the spice rack, used a few pinches of things, left a few things behind for the next guests. The cabin is in great shape, super at keeping the bugs out. That’s huge for me, apparently, I’m delicious (left island last year with 89 bites; left island this year with four I got on the hike to Reef Bay). I could really just never say enough about the cabin. My husband wants the floor plans. Sue was super sweet, calling us the evening of our arrival to make sure everything was ship-shape (HA, ship, Captain, I kill me), and was then completely un-intrusive the rest of our stay.  Anyhoo, long story short, we’ll never stay anywhere else on the island ever again. Captain’s Cabin is the best.

Completely Blown Away!!
First off, I want to give the most helpful info to potential renters; For descriptions of the beauty in store for you, just read all the other reviews and multiply the stunning perfection by 100! What you need to know is that the owner deserves all the credit in the world. Sue expertly knows how to prep the cabin AND the cabin-goers for the vacation of a lifetime. The cabin was so stocked and set-up that we could’ve almost brought nothing with us and still been happy. And this is very important: There were no hidden surprises. Not with money, not with the property, not with the whole experience. This is a honeymooner’s/ adventurer’s/ privacy seeker’s is probably not the best place for the faint of heart, the dull, or the lazy tourist who wants a place where you can sit on your butt and have your pampered vacation handed to you on a silk pillow. This is the REAL DEAL! ALL the natural wonders of an island paradise are at your disposal (literally-we couldn’t have even dreamed of how true this is!!), but you have to go outside and get it. Read the reviews…see anyone not totally blown away?? If so, that person probably should’ve stayed somewhere else!! Sue goes out of her way to match the adventure with the adventurer, and makes every effort to make sure her customers are not getting themselves into something ill-suited for their tastes. For those of you who want to hole-up for a week or two (especially honeymooners;)), this place would be perfect, but I challenge you to stay indoors for very long. We woke up our first morning and spent no less than 3 or 4 hours exploring and investigating the plants, creatures, and scenery…and that was just between the cabin and the car! Do yourself a favor and get the decent gear you need to explore every nook and cranny of this island: 4WD Jeep, mosquito spray, tight snorkel gear, well-fitted hiking shoes/sandals, GoPro, and your sense of wonder. Leave your phone at home, right next to your expectations…neither one will do you a lick of good here!!!
