Nestled in the V.I. NATIONAL PARK on the island of St. John, these properties offer simple comfort in unspoiled settings overlooking white sand beaches and turquoise water, most with stunning vistas.
From Maho Bay Camps inexpensive tent-cottages ("…the best value in the Caribbean…"NY Times) and Harmony and Concordia's quiet, comfortable Studios to Concordia’s unique Eco-Tents ("…low prices and high style…" Vogue) these four award winning environmental showcases offer a vacation experience to satisfy any budget.
At Maho and Harmony you can be as relaxed or active as you like. On-site Watersports Center offers sailing, scuba, snorkeling and boardsailing. Three extraordinary beaches adjoin the property. Superb hiking trails are in easy reach. The Pavilion Restaurant and (winter season) Beach Café serve great food in a casual, social setting. There's nightly entertainment and our Arts Center offers demonstrations and craft workshops using recycled materials.
Concordia, on the remote southeast end of St. John is the place for those seeking peace and quiet in a setting of remarkable natural beauty. Choose from a variety of studios and award-winning eco-tents. The eco-tents are solar powered, each with private bath. All eco-tents have spectacular views of either Rams Head Point, Salt Pond Bay, Drunk Bay or various islands in the BVI. The studios are comfortable, fully equipped units, most with the same spectacular views as the eco-tents. With rarely visited beaches and hiking trails on the south side of St. John and an eclectic mix of Coral Bay restaurants in easy driving distance, Concordia offers complete relaxation in a unique setting.
