Securely snuggled into the verdant green hillside of Bordeaux Mountain, Estate Chateau Margot is situated on Bordeaux’s eastern slope, approximately 1,000 feet above sea level. Overlooking the quiet community of Coral Bay, the impressive 4 1/2 acre estate affords majestic views of St. John’s East End as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Norman and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This property is only 1½ miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho and Francis Beaches and only 3 miles from the center of Coral Bay. To reach the estate, travel 5 miles from downtown Cruz Bay, halfway through the Virgin Islands National Park, on cool tree-canopied Centerline Road. Only 3/10 of a mile after passing the historic Reef Bay Trail entrance, the road to the estate forks off just to the right of the famous Château Bordeaux restaurant complex. From there, a 1/2 mile paved drive curves around and down to the grand white gates of Chateau Margot.
truly incomparable distinction and class …
Chateau Margot, like its nearby neighbor Château Bordeaux, shares a name with one of the world’s best wines. Margot, a red claret wine of “truly incomparable distinction and class”, always “well-balanced and unsurpassed by any other wine on earth” makes an appropriate namesake for this estate. Being distinctive and classy, Chateau Margot stands out and above most other St. John properties. This villa’s classic quality and exceptional superiority are impossible to deny when noticing the warmth of carved teak and mahogany woods; the lasting beauty and strength of polished granite, coral and marble tiles; and the innovative appliances, fixtures and electronics found all throughout its structure. The artistic blending of a rich regal decor, set within coolly casual curves and angles, adapted to the middle of a secluded tropical forest, gives this estate the well-balanced “premier grand -cru” classification that it truly deserves. Completely renovated under the conception and direction of St. John’s talented interior designer Adette Irish, this villa showcases original art from local artists such as: Amy Tracer, Les Anderson, Elaine Estern and Janet Cook-Rutnik among others. Well known names for linens, rugs and furnishings are artfully arranged against St. John handcrafted doors, cabinetry and native stone walls. Winding terraces, railed wooden decks, native stone paths, gardens and koi ponds connect Chateau Margot’s three large masonry buildings. The interior living space is 6,165 square ft. and the exterior decking is 2,300 square ft. for a total of 8,465 square ft. of pure Caribbean paradise. The main level of the three-story Great House holds the living, dining and kitchen areas, as well as the infinity-edged pool and sundeck. The Margot Master bed/bath Suite and the Pineapple and Parrot bedrooms are on the upper level of the Great House. Situated beside the Great House, is the 2 level Guest House, containing both the Orchid and Bamboo bed/bath Suites. Overlooking the Great House, is the free standing Coral Cottage, a very private bedroom/bath that also has a kitchenette. All bedrooms contain ceiling fans, and each has its own A/C. This countryside villa is ideal for one, two or three families. The arrangement of the three upper bedrooms in the Great House is perfect for parents with younger children.
Thank you to the owners for sharing your wonderful home with us, it was perfect for our relaxing and quiet honeymoon that we were looking for. We enjoyed snorkeling at many of the north shore beaches. We hope to return to St. John for one of our anniversaries and will remember all the hospitality that we got at Chateau Margot!
Wow! Chateau Margot is just amazing! The view is incredible. Our 3 families had everything we needed to have an unforgettable vacation! St. John is the most beautiful place we’ve ever been. The beaches are all wonderful, but Cinnamon Bay & Trunk Bay were our favorites. Thank you for thinking of everything for a fantastic vacation! We loved the view, the kitchen, and the provisions upon arrival, AH! Our week couldn’t have been more brilliant and our 3 families will remember Chateau Margot forever. Our families could not have asked for a better place. Everything we needed was already in place. We felt at home instantly. Thank you for a wonderful place and for memories for our families that will last a life time.
We had such a wonderful week in Chateau Margot! We love St. John & will certainly return, your home is lovely! Everything was so beautifully selected. The art is magnificent! The view is spectacular! The gardens are beautiful and the pool was amazing! We had a fantastic week and will return for sure. Thank you so much for sharing your home, we have made some wonderful family memories.
“We have just finished a week at Chateau Margo. It really is as beautiful as the photos indicate. Our family ages ranged from 9 to 89, and everyone has indicated they had a great time and would love to be at such a place again. The couple of minor issues which arise with 12 people in the course of a week were resolved for us promptly and courteously. We prepared most of our breakfasts and dinners at the villa and found all of the kitchen tools to be well organized and in good order.”
“Chateau Margot was everything we were expecting. The kitchen was expertly furnished. Eating areas were spacious and various. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool was nice, but cold. The heat pump broke the first day we were there and the managers did all they could do to get it fixed, but the part was delayed in coming. The breezes were so nice, we rarely had to use air conditioning. Great place to stay!”
“Another wonderful visit to Chateau Margot. The accommodations remain exquisite and the view is priceless. Our family enjoyed ourselves immensely. St. John is one of our favorite islands ever. Thank you for sharing your villa with us!”
