SEAclusion-St. John offers panoramic sunrise to sunset ocean views high up top Ajax Peak overlooking Maho and Coral Bays.  We are happy to report SEAclusion suffered no major hurricane damage during Irma or Maria.  SEAclusion was renovated in 2014 and includes 2 King Master bedrooms with en suite baths, full house a/c and wifi, plus two additional great rooms with optional sofa sleeper for a 5th and/or 6th guest.  Sitting majestically 1000 feet atop of Ajax Peak with gated security access on all paved road/driveway, SEAclusion is less than a 20 minute drive from Cruz Bay along all paved roads, and only a short drive from Coral Bay. Less than 5 minutes from the house are the white sand beaches of Maho Bay and its sister beaches. Since SEAclusion is on the ridge top we enjoy views to both East and West Horizons from Coral Bay to beyond Norman Island and then along the North Shore of St. John and the outer cays to the lights of St. Thomas in the distance.  

Designed in the Traditional West Indian Great House style, SEAclusion has wonderful architectural details like the sweeping, stone stairway entrance, arched windows and wooden shutters, as well as ballast brick and stone wall detailing. Two levels, accessed by the handmade custom hardwood inside stairway, each with master suite to provide a maximum of privacy for couples or two families. As you enter the villa the great room is to your right through the expansive, stone arch and offers comfortable furniture to lounge and enjoy the panoramic views.  Two 12 foot sliding doors have been recently installed, bringing in the views of Coral Bay, the north shore, and all the way to St. Thomas.  Directly ahead is the newly remodeled, well equipped kitchen with TV, hardwood cabinets, granite countertops, and new appliances. The kitchen provides an indoor dining area with optional bar seating overlooking Coral Bay Harbor.   Or dine outdoors off the deck to enjoy the sunset over St. Thomas. You can also gather for pool side dining complete with gas grill to take in that amazing view all the way out to East End, Norman Island and beyond! SEAclusion St. John has decks that wrap entirely around the house so you can adjust your location to take full advantage of the varying sunlight and views.  Just delivered the first week in November are comfy outdoor chairs, settee, and chaise lounges for the deck spaces.  

Each of the king master suites has a wonderful mix of antique and custom furnishings, a/c, king bed, spacious walk-in closets and en suite bath. Both suites enjoy similar views over Coral Bay and beyond, while the lower suite enjoys a covered veranda with quick access to the pool. The lower level family room has desk, satellite TV, and sofa sleeper with memory foam padding.  The villa sleeps 4 comfortably, but additional space for up to two more guests can be provided here with the queen sofa sleeper.    The pool deck is spacious with lounge chairs, dining area, lush garden areas and that incredible view to Coral Bay and beyond - complete with in ground, concrete 24' x 12' x 4.5' deep swimming pool. 

Last but by no means least, is the roof-top terrace with large built-in bench, accessed by custom indoor, hardwood ladder; the panoramic views here are truly magnificent!  

SEAclusion's central island location is ideal for travelers who truly want to experience all St. John has to offer.  From the excitement of Cruz Bay, the beautiful beaches of the North Shore, numerous hiking trails, awesome snorkeling sites, to the private and pristine beaches of the southeast and the charm of Coral Bay -- SEAclusion provides fast and easy access to all as well as a private and beautiful retreat to call home at the end of the day.

Best VRBO we have ever stayed!

This property was over the top, literally! It is located on top of one of the highest peaks on the island and has spectacular views of Coral Bay, the BVIs, St. Thomas, Maho Bay and more. Every patio you stand on has a different unbelievable view! We felt welcome in their home, as that is truly was it was - not just some rental property. There were books, St. John guidebooks, cooking spices, any kitchen amenity needed, beach and pool accessories, yoga mats, reading lights, travel water cups! I only wish I would have known all the extra conveniences and would have packed a little lighter. The property manager lives nearby and was available via text for any questions we had. They were prompt to respond and very personable. If you are looking at other properties on the island, this is hands down the one to choose! We travel often and go to new places every year. This house is so amazing that we plan to return.

It is all about the views...

...and tranquility of being in paradise! We stayed at Seaclusion on St. John for our Honeymoon. Everything about our experience was fantastic. The Seaclusion was beautiful and in fantastic shape. There are so many places to sit and take in amazing views both inside and outside the home. The crows nest on the roof was our favorite! We sat up their most nights watching amazing sun sets. The owners and management company were great to work with! They were vey helpful in guiding us as we planned our trip. We highly recommend staying at Seaclusion and plan to come back soon!

Truly an amazing trip to St John, and couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else on the Island other then SeaClusion. There are truly no words to describe the views. The only thing you fight about here is which view is best, and what beach to go to. Conveniently located 20 minutes from Cruz Bay and 10 minutes from Coral Bay. Easy access to all over the island. Some of our favorite beaches: Maho (7mins from house), Hawksnest and Frances. Coral Bay favorite restaurant Rhumb Lines, and Cruz Bay Extra Virgin. Favorite hike: Rams Head.

Views Views Views .... AMAZING

Views Views Views .... only arguments here are deciding which view is the best! Ultimate rest and relaxation! My wife and I spent our honeymoon here for 11 days and wouldn’t imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Although located a 1000ft up, you are only 10 minutes from Coral Bay Restaurants (Rhumb Lines our favorite), 20 minutes from Cruz Bay (Extra Virgin our favorite restaurant). Closest beach Maho which happened to be one of our favorites is 7 minutes from house. Highly recommend and Michele couldn’t be easier to deal with, answering any questions we may have had. Thankful and blessed to have been able to stay in this beautiful home!

Wonderful House and Location

This is probably our 7th or 8th stay at this house over the past decade. We had been renting it from the original owner who built the house, and we were thrilled when the new owners continued renting out this paradise on the island. The house is well appointed, the views are truly incredible (you can see sunrise and sunset), and the owners and caretakers are very responsive.

Now This is a Beautiful Place to Stay.....

Debbie and I along with friends of ours from the Twin Cities stayed at SEAclusion the last week of January, 2019. Our timing was perfect as a Polar Vortex brought teeth chattering sub-zero cold and snow to the Great Lakes region while we were all enjoying the panoramic views from the wrap-around decks of the villa. Where does one begin to describe all the great aspects of SEAclusion? The location is perfect for those who enjoy the quiet side of St John high above Coral Bay on Ajax Peak. Watching the sun rise over the East End and set over St. Thomas always made us pause and enjoy the natural beauty of the setting. The quality of the villa's construction was fabulous with attention to detail everywhere one looked. The furnishings were all well thought out to make every room in the villa a place to relax and enjoy. And of course, the state-side property owners and on-site property management were all extraordinary from the beginning of our trip planning until the very end of our stay. Excellent communications throughout which made our stay at SEAclusion so enjoyable.

Heaven On Earth!

My husband and I, along with several different family members, have been vacationing on St. John since we discovered this beautiful island over 20 years ago. In all of our years here, we have never stayed in the same villa twice.....that is, until now, and our wonderful SEAclusion experience! Between the time we made our reservation and our arrival date, STJ was hit with two devastating storms. Over the course of the storm and for the months that followed, owner Michele kept us informed of the damage and progress in 'putting the island back together again'. Thankfully, their villa, built like a fortress, made it through the storm with only minor damage to the decking and foliage.....we fully understood how and why it made it through two Category 5 storms once we is as solid as could be! This communication was vital as our five week vacation the following summer was hanging in the balance. I can't say enough good about Michele through this uncertain time. Happily, we arrived on STJ as planned and spent five glorious weeks in a fabulous villa.....overlooking Coral Bay and Maho/Frances Bays with views all the way to St. Thomas.....does it get any better than this? Michele and Dave have done an incredible job designing a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean with all the modern comforts and amenities. We entertained two sets of family members during our stay.....each of us having our own 'floors' and 'decks', so we were able to enjoy some solitude every day before and after we enjoyed the modern kitchen together and the beaches in between. Maho and Frances, our two favorites, were an easy 5 minutes away. We were able to view the parking lot at Maho from SEAclusion, so we always knew when to leave to be ensured of convenient parking there. While there is no doubt that the underwater world of St. John suffered from the hurricanes, we were delighted to find representation of all of the corals, fish and sea life in various stages of rebuilding. We saw more turtles than we have ever seen at Maho......and were delighted by so many young didn't even have to make an effort to find them. Simply float.....within minutes, they are below you! Heaven on Earth! The location turned out to be perfect.....we loved the breezy coolness.....kept us cool and the flying pests away. Very comfy beds. Caretakers Wayne & Roseanne are fabulous.....very responsive and eager to please. It was perfect! We can't wait to return!

Vacation Extraordinaire!

Seaclusion is an amazing vacation home that is truly one of a kind - the pictures, while beautiful, don't do justice to this wonderful place. We placed a deposit for our vacation last fall prior to the hurricane hitting the island. Michelle, the owner, provided us with frequent updates on the status of the island over the following months. Based on these communications, we decided to continue with our plans to visit St John in February and we are so glad that we did!! The house , with its 360 degree views of the Caribbean (check out the widow's walk!) , is spectacular. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and the double decker porches were meant for relaxing. While there is still evidence of some hurricane damage on the island, we found the amazing restaurants and shops of St John open and ready for business. From seeing an impromptu performance by Kenny Chesney at the Sun Dog Café to sailing with Captain Max, our stay was fantastic! Michelle, Seaclusion's owner, was so helpful, arranging transportation from the airport to the ferry with Bazille, the best taxi driver(and tour guide) ever! Once on St John, Roseanne and Wayne, Michelle's island hosts, led us to the house and attended to our every question and request throughout the week. We definitely plan on a return visit to St. John and Seaclusion in the near future!!

We are very happy that you & your family had a great time on St. John and at SEAclusion! Thank you for visiting the island in this time of transition and helping in the recovery of the local economy and tourist businesses. We look forward to having you back for a future stay. Although it will be hard to top that impromptu Kenny Chesney performance, we will try our best to make your next stay even more memorable! Thanks again - Michele and Dave Meade

Ideal Island Stay

Seaclusion was the perfect home for our St John vacation. The photos are accurate but the home is even better than a photo can capture--the high quality construction, hand-carved mahogany staircase to the rooftop, furnishings, and outstanding views in complete privacy and quiet. There is a clean pool and extra large hammock for relaxing. The kitchen has full panoramic views, as well as multiple decks with even more views. For us, peaceful Ajax Peak was the best location for easy access to all parts of the island. We especially appreciated making a quick trip to the North Shore to be the first ones in the water for a morning snorkel or an early evening snorkel at Maho or Trunk Bays after the crowds have left. Sunsets and star gazing from the rooftop deck, what a great way to end a full day of snorkeling and exploring. Birds, butterflies, and deer were welcome visitors. Constant breezes kept away mosquitoes. I would not hesitate to return, as I can't imagine a more ideal home or island location. Many thanks for a perfect stay.
