Coral Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
Few properties are closer to the Virgin Island National Park beaches on St. John's beautiful north shore. Four minutes to fabulous Maho Bay or Francis Bay and just fifteen minutes from Cruz Bay town, Swogjan's Dragon is a three bedroom villa with 2300 square feet of indoor living space and extensive outdoor decks. There is also a huge pool, hot tub, and unbelievable panoramic views of the US and British Virgin Islands. See all the way to Virgin Gorda, and Northerly views to Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke.

The property is perfect for beach loving families and honeymooners alike, with a private but very accessible location.

Looking for even more peace and quiet? Swogjan's is located just minutes from dining and live music in Coral Bay.

We stayed at Swogjan for 2 weeks over the Christmas weeks, and I've been meaning to write a review... Overall we had a great stay and I recommend the property- particularly for families. It's a medium sized split level house with 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 1 bedroom on a lower/basement floor. The lower bedroom is not directly connected, and I think they may rent it out separately at times. The main Pros are: perfect location on the island (very central and not near the noisy areas), a FANTASTIC private swimming pool, and probably the best views on the island. Also, communication with the rental agency and owners was very good. Cons: Definitely in need of an update; if you are looking for a super luxury new construction kind of place, this is not it- very clean and well maintained though. Water pressure is an issue because it has natural rainwater tanks which means that if you use up the tank you need to wait 15 minutes for the it to refill to get water back. Overall...

Swogjan's Dragon was the perfect place for me, my husband and our friends who traveled with us to St. John. The house was nicely furnished, beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of cooking utensils and parking at the house was some of the best I have experiended in 25 years of going to St. John. Swogjan's is very centrally located which made going to the beaches an easy drive. The location of the house made for some of the most fabulous breezes ever experienced in St. John (good for keeping the mosquitos at bay!). Air condition was really not needed, but it is great to have it if one needs it. Thanks for adding it to Swogjan's! Views were spectacular -- down to Coral Bay, the Sir Francis Drake passage, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola -- just breath taking!! Thanks for sharing "the Dragon" with us. A great time was had by all.
