Greetings from the Virgin Islands! 🙂
Donkey Holla is a new, unique shipping container house located in Coral Bay on St John, Virgin Islands. This labor of love is built entirely of steel and tropical hardwood and survived two category 5 hurricanes in September 2018! The shipping container home is in a rare, flat area of the island that is amazingly easy to get to. It is only a short drive from the famous north shore beaches, the east end snorkel spots or from Salt Pond and Lameshur bays to the south.
The space consists of two 20-foot shipping containers, 16 feet apart, with a screened in kitchen/ atrium in the center. Lovely hardwood floors run through the entire space. One container is the bedroom with a queen size bed, bath and gorgeous, private outdoor shower. The other container is set up with a small sectional couch and a 50″ smart TV. Both containers can be closed off from the middle area. The owners love to cook, so the centerpiece of the galley-style kitchen is an eight-foot butcher block island that they modified with a breakfast bar and a stainless drop-in cook top. It is definitely the heart of the space!
So what do you think? Would you stay here?
