With an unmatched level of privacy, luxury, and convenience, Finisterre offers a truly sumptuous enclave for your St. John vacation. “Finisterre” comes from the Latin phrase “finis terrae,” meaning “end of the earth,” and upon your arrival at this sprawling home, the inspiration for this moniker becomes immediately apparent. Nestled above the shoreline on Bovocoap Point, Finisterre affords sweeping, unobstructed views of the brilliant blues of Hart Bay and Rendezvous Bay beyond, with the wild, windswept Ram Head point in the distance. This, combined with the two-acre compound’s utmost level of privacy, lends a feeling of seclusion and indeed of being at the end of the earth.
The large pool features a submerged tanning ledge, ideal for splashing with your littlest loved ones or for reclining under the warm Caribbean sun. A variety of seating areas, both covered and uncovered, border the pool, meaning your entire party can gather in the comfort of the tranquil trade winds that waft peacefully through Finisterre’s outdoor spaces. The home’s pod-style layout ensures that afternoon siestas or moments of solitude can be enjoyed in the utmost of privacy.
Each of the six bedrooms at this completely refreshed 1950s bohemian traditional Caribbean-style home has been given its own Latin name, inspired by the features that make Finisterre so special. The rooms Cassiopeia and Andromeda are a nod to the expansive, glittering night sky that stretches above this private estate, while the poolside bedroom, Cetus—meaning whale—pays homage to the gentle giants that migrate through Virgin Islands waters in the winter, when you can witness them breaching from Finisterre’s plethora of outdoor spaces.
A media room, gym, and game room with pool table offer more than enough to keep you and your traveling companions busy, but should you wish to strike out and explore the island’s natural beauty, Finisterre is just a 15-minute drive to St. John’s unspoiled north shore beaches. The shopping, bars, and restaurants in bustling Cruz Bay are less than 10 minutes away by car.
For a true escape with a blend of exclusive comfort and enjoyment that you won’t find anywhere else on St. John, come vacation at the end of the earth—Finisterre.
