Rainbow Room At Sloop Jones

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Commune with nature and art in The Rainbow Room by Sloop Jones, a quiet retreat on St. John in the US Virgin Islands.

The Rainbow Room is a spacious one-bedroom with high ceilings and tons of natural light, a large bathroom with shower, a kitchenette, and a large porch with screened in area and blissful water view. Walk less than five minutes and you’re on the neighborhood’s private, secluded beach.

It’s located on the same peaceful property as the famed Sloop Jones art studio and gallery, but in a separate, stand-alone guesthouse.

Lush tropical grounds surround the cottage, displaying nature’s bold and sensual palette. You will enjoy vivid and fragrant tropical flora that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

Visit while the jasmine or ylang ylang is in bloom, and your nose will have an ambrosial experience of a lifetime. Become friends with the silent predawn hour after the insects have stopped buzzing and before the birds begin to chirp.

The Rainbow Room is located on an enchanting piece of property, yes. But even better, the island is magical in and of itself. People who love St. John will tell you it’s a treasure of an island. A jewel.

About two thirds is reserved as National Park, saving the island from overdevelopment. As such, St. John’s beaches are unspoiled and high-rise free.

A nature lover’s paradise with tons of trails and ample snorkeling, St. John is also a great place to relax, imbibe, and shop. So if exercising on vacay isn’t your thing… no problem.

The Rainbow Room is on the remote East End of St. John, perfect for people who REALLY like to get away from it all.

Quiet and sparsely populated, the East End offers scenic vistas of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Plus, a starscape that will honestly-not-just-saying-this take your breath away. And probably bring tears to your eyes.

Also. There are wild donkeys and goats.

For the soulful traveler who yearns for a balance of solitude and connection, serenity and stimulation, The Rainbow Room will arouse your senses and rejuvenate your spirit.

And it may very well become your happy place.
