SKYLOFT, a modern vacation cottage completed in 2015, is 600 feet above Coral Bay and 1-mile from the Virgin Islands National Park. The home has two buildings, a kitchen and bedroom with bath. There is a 12-foot diameter pool on the deck. There are two outdoor showers. There is a shaded, outdoor dining area behind the bedroom.

The space
The Skyloft indoor kitchen includes a sink, a 2-burner stove top, a unique, full-capacity, under-counter refrigerator/freezer, cabinets and eat-in counter space for 2.

The outdoor kitchen features a built-in gas grill and a sink. There is a sheltered outdoor dining/lounging area between the two buildings.

The bedroom is a separate, enclosed, fully-screened building with a queen-sized bed, ceiling-fan, air conditioning, two closets, and a bath featuring an outdoor shower. The outdoor shower has stunning views of Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole, Tortola, Norman Island and the Sir Francis Drake Channel.

Reliable Internet service via WiFi is available at no charge.
Skyloft has an Internet-based VOIP telephone. There is currently no charge for using this telephone.

Skyloft enjoys a robust, state-of-the-art water filtering system installed in March of 2016. Our collected rainwater is thoroughly filtered, and then passed through a sterilizing UV process before it enters the buildings.

Guest access
The property is secluded, secure and private; surrounded by tropical vegetation. Guests have exclusive access to the entire property including a leveled, shaded side-yard.

Other things to note
Beach towels, beach chairs, and a cooler are available for excursions.

There is a 600-foot elevation change over 0.5 miles from sea level to the Skyloft parking space. The road to parking is 2/3 cement and 1/3 rough dirt road. You must have a high-clearance, 4-Wheel Drive Jeep in order to get up this road.

There are three flights of stairs between the driveway parking area and the Skyloft deck.

Rainwater is collected in cisterns and then pumped through a state-of-the-art "whole house" filtering and UV purification system which was installed in 2016.

The Government of the United States Virgin Islands imposes a 12.5% room tax on all vacation rentals. Airbnb has just started a program to collect this tax and remit it to the USVI government. This is a new system. Please monitor your account and verify that the tax has been applied and collected correctly. If we detect a problem with automatic tax collection, we will notify you.

IMPORTANT: REGARDING WINTER AIR TRAVEL
Airlines are now cancelling flights in anticipation of bad weather rather than because of bad weather. If Winter weather is forecast 48 hours or so before your departure, your flight may be delayed or cancelled. If your flight is delayed, you may not be able to get to the island of St. John the same day you land in St. Thomas. Please plan for this. When we travel during the Winter months, we are now booking a room for one night on St. Thomas both coming and going in case there is a delay. This reduces our stress if a flight is delayed, and we recommend it highly. We are now also STRONGLY recommending travel insurance for all winter travel. Because our costs of operation are fixed, we cannot issue a refund if your air travel is delayed or cancelled 5 days or less before your scheduled arrival date.

IMPORTANT-REGARDING CANCELLATION: We offer a generous cancellation policy that gives you a full refund if you cancel more than 5 days before your stay. THIS FULL REFUND DOES NOT INCLUDE THE AIRBNB SERVICE FEE. The Airbnb service fee is NOT refunded if you cancel your reservation. This is an Airbnb policy that we do not control.
