The covered porches were designed and furnished with comfort in mind. They hold a small dining table, reading chairs and a porch swing to while away the rare rainy afternoon. A coconut shell bird feeder attracts a delightful group of finches in the mornings. The view to the south and east is of the eastern end of St. John, the neighboring British Islands and the Caribbean Sea. This peaceful spot has unforgettable sun rises as well as moon rises.
The cozy interior of Sago Cottage has a distinctly quaint feel without sacrificing modern conveniences. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a full size dining room and a small but comfortable living room. The bedroom features a queen sized four poster mahogany bed, hand made on St. John and is a perfect place to wake up to a day in the islands. The colorful louvered shutters serve to filter the light as well as frame the ocean views throughout the cottage.
Sago Cottage is located in a secluded hillside setting with a great deal of privacy and no nearby neighbors. The last three quarters of a mile are via bumpy dirt road but the view when you arrive will be well worth the drive. Lovely white sand beaches, including Salt Pond Bay, are just a short drive as are national park hiking trails. Restaurants, shops and watersports are all available within two miles in Coral Bay. The main town on the island, Cruz Bay, is located 8 miles away. The airport is in St. Thomas which is reached via a twenty minute ferry ride (Ferries leave every hour on the hour and cost $7 each way).

For first time visitors to the islands or if “it’s been a while” we prefer to meet you at the dock on St. John. We will then take you to pick up your rental car and stop for groceries before showing you out to the house. If you feel quite familiar with the island we can also arrange to meet you in Coral Bay. Whoever shows you into the house will give you a basic orientation and also go over the map. They will discuss your interests and make suggestions to help you enjoy your stay on the island as much as possible. They will point out some of the best beaches, snorkel spots, hiking trails, restaurants and shops. Feel free to ask them any questions that will enhance your stay. Our greeters are all enthusiastic residents of the island that are hoping to make your vacation as much fun as possible.
