About Dorothy micheletti
We have been traveling to St. John for over thirty years, and our children have come with us since they were born. St. John is home for us: the moment we stepped on the island in the 1970s it just felt right, and we've been coming back every year since. We look forward to sharing our dream home with you!
Dorothy micheletti purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Dorothy micheletti chose Lower Carolina
We fell in love with the Bordeaux Mountain site for Drake's View because of the breathtaking views. We knew that we would build on the site as soon as we saw the vista from this incredible spot(it used to host a hang gliding launch pad!). The villa is located in a perfect central location on the island: close to both the ferry dock and restaurants in downtown Cruz Bay, and to the more relaxed vibes and great snorkeling in Coral Bay.
What makes this Villa unique
Drake's View has the view voted by Caribbean Travel Magazine as 'the best in the Caribbean,' and ample patios and terraces from which to enjoy the vista, stargaze, and enjoy the sunset. Drake's View has incredible terraced gardens on site, great birdwatching, and is walking distance from the famous Reef Bay Trail and other hiking on Bordeaux Mountain. It is a short drive to both the North Shore beaches (5 min. to closest beach) and the more secluded beaches on the East End. Also, unlike some beach-side rentals which are often buggy and hot, Drake's View is blessed with a constant breeze!

Fabulous Family Time!
Drake's View was fabulous! The house, the amazing view, the island, the beaches and, of course, the pool and hot tub were perfect. Our family group of 7 adults was celebrating birthdays and our upcoming 45th Anniversary. The house layout and separate cottage was great and the kitchen was very well stocked. We had great meals at the house and in the local restaurants. I hope we can get back to Drake's View in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your home!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Drakes View. St John is a special place and we are pleased that you got to now the island. We hope that you will return to Drake‘s View.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Drakes View. It was short and sweets. Thank you!
Thanks for choosing Drake's View and we look forward to having you return in the near future!
Stunning views and impeccably maintained!
As repeat guests of Drake's View for several years, we feel very much at home there and will be returning again next year!
The photos really don't do this home justice because it's close to impossible to capture the feelings obtained at this house in a photo, even in a video. I've been coming to St. John for 30 years. I've rented mostly in the Carolina area. I've always heard you don't need air conditioning in Bourdeaux. You really don't. The wind is magical, just like the view, just like the home.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with everyone. What a gift.
We are so glad you enjoyed Drake's View and it's spectacular view. St John seems to choose it's visitors and I hope you return to explore more of the island.
