Winsome House provides an enchanting Caribbean experience for two couples or a small family. Built in 2004 in the style of the old plantation houses, a Great House provides the dining and entertainment spaces and a separate, two-story building houses the equal-sized bedrooms and baths. 1300 square feet of deck unites both buildings into one indoor/outdoor living space.
Glimpsed through five mahogany French doors, the sea is never far from view. The ambiance of the tropics is reflected in the Tommy Bahama and Indonesian furnishings throughout the house.
Mahogany kitchen cabinetry stocked with Villeroy & Boch dinnerware and Calphalon cookwear and cutlery will please the most discriminating guest. A beautiful carved wooden table provides an elegant dining experience when weather dictates.
On a 30-foot, covered terrace, alfresco dining is possible in all but the most inclement weather.
An unobstructed view of the sea from the pool and the deck beckons for lazy days at home. Spacious decks, both covered and uncovered, accommodate all degrees of sun worshipping.
Separation of the bedrooms from the Great House and from one another assures privacy and independence for all guests. On the same level as the Great House, the lower bedroom opens onto the main deck and the pool through two mahogany French doors. The large shower, from which the sea can be viewed, opens onto a brick and native stone patio.
Up a wide, brick staircase separating the bedrooms from the Great House is the upper-story bedroom with king bed. The bedroom opens onto a private, covered deck with just possibly the best view in the house. The shower too with its sea view is sure to delight.
Situated ideally at mid-island, Maho Bay and the string of North Shore beaches are but a five-minute drive away. Ram Head, Salt Pond and the solitude of the East End are reachable within fifteen minutes, as are many of the island's best hiking trails. Casual to fine dining is close at hand in Coral Bay or a mere 20 minutes away in Cruz Bay.

We rented Winsome house from Oct 29th until Nov 8th. There were 2 of us and we had a great time! The villa is everything it is advertised to be and better. The views are fantastic. The villa was clean, comfortable and well supplied. Everything you could need is there. From kitchen items to supplies for the beach ( coolers, chairs, etc) The greeter we had ( Eric) met us with a smile, which was so welcomed after all long day of traveling. He was kind enough to stop so we could get a few supplies. When we got to the Villa we saw there was a small basket of food items for us, which was thoughtful. We will return again to Winsome house.
Many thanks for providing flawless friendly service and stunning accommodation. Property and location are completely and accurately represented on the your website. Winsome House is very private and beautiful, and the views are "a piece of heaven on earth". Because of it's central location, access to all island services and activities is easy and quick (4 wheel drive vehicle is required). Everything you should need is provided at the villa, and is truly a "home away from home". We had an amazingly positive experience and are currently planning our return. This is also very good value for your hard earned dollar. We fully recommend Winsome House for your next vacation destination.
My husband and I recently celebrated our liberation from college payments by spending an enchanting week at Winsome House in St John. We were greeted at the ferry by an adorable young lady who got us on our way to our magical getaway. We never expected Winsome House to be so perfect. The house had everything we could have possibly dreamed of and more. The beds were extremely comfortable. The showers with french doors facing the breathtaking view were heavenly. If you are looking for total privacy Winsome House is for you. Area beaches are a few minutes away. We enjoyed going to different bays each day. Although the kitchen is first class we opted out of cooking and ate out each night. Coral Bay is also minutes away. We will definitely be back to paradise. Thank you for a relaxing and rejuvenating visit.
