Coral Bay house description

Enjoy breathtaking harbor views and the luscious Coral Bay breeze from this cheerful, friendly cottage located in slower-paced, historic Coral Bay. It's a comfortable, colorful, and spacious home with lush gardens, lots of privacy and an expansive deck. This is not a shared environment; it is completely private with your own house and gardens. Tracey, your wonderful host, prepares the house beautifully and provides you with a key to your own private paradise! Beautiful white sand beaches for sun bathing, swimming and snorkeling are just a few minutes away or you can stroll over to Crabby's, rent a kayak and snorkel gear and paddle over to a secluded beach not accessible by car. (Island Cottage is only a 15 minute drive to northside beaches and a couple of miles to Salt Pond Bay beach.)

In the evening walk down to the harbor and enjoy a romantic dinner at one of the wonderful Coral Bay restaurants or stop for groceries and have a romantic dinner at home on the deck.

The owners are artisans and this shows up in this home. This house has a paved access and great off the street parking. When you inquire and reserve Island Cottage you will work directly with the owner. We make sure your experience is personal and rewarding - all interactions will be with the owner or Tracey our on-island host. Air conditioning in the bedroom.

REVIEWS:
' I've stayed all around St. John and Island Cottage is by far the best; it offers more for the price than any place I've stayed - hotel, B&B, and other houses. When I first saw Island Cottage on the website, I thought the pictures were amazing; but after staying there; I realized the pictures don't do it justice. It's an inspiration and a work of art.' Joyce Robinson, 2009

As the book full of accolades at Island Cottage attests, your home was beyond any expectation we had. Sarah and I had a magical week there. The house is beautiful and I counted myself lucky indeed to have a week of spectacular sunrises. Local dining was great, the snorkeling was amazing and the sightseeing was wonderful as well. Thank you so much for opening your home to the huddled masses as you do, you have a jewel there. And speaking of jewels...Tracey was one of the warmest people I have ever met. You have a treasure in her. Mary, the gardener, was a cracker, we met on our next to the last day and could have spent the rest of the afternoon talking away. Everyone associated with this time away was wonderful.' Kevin and Sarah, Vermont. January, 2009

'One of the best uses of space, color and art we have seen. Complements the view - not sure which is prettier.. inside or out! We loved it!' Jean and Scott, August, 2008

'We've had a short, but wonderful stay at Island Cottage. Your place far exceeded expectations and your attention to detail most appreciated.' August, 2008 Beth and Dean, Georgia

'This is our honeymoon and we feel we picked the perfect island to enjoy it and couldn't be happier with Island Cottage. We absolutely loved Salt Pond Bay right here in Coral Bay. We've had a magical time here. Your place here is wonderful, and it is very obvious all the care you bestow on it so lovingly. We were touched by your attention to detail; the landscaping shows an artist's patience and loving hand at work. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, magical place with us. Maggie and Eric June 2008

'We were so pleased at how well this place 'works'. The fans and cross ventilation kept it really pleasant in mid-July. It could sound mundane to someone who hasn't taken a look at other driveways hereabouts but this driveway is primo. We really enjoyed the birds and anoles; the bananaquits put on such a show in return for a bowl of sugar water. We had a great vacation!' The Campbells

Cindy, Harry and Tracey -
What can I say but St. John was so much better than imagined. Island Cottage is a place we will NEVER forget... beautiful, peaceful and rich with memories. You have a treasure here!
Dennis and Leslie; October, 2008

'If you seek constant entertainment, pool parties, cocktails served all day, dancing in the club or nightly bar hopping, this is not for you! I have a high stress job and I found the perfect get away, not only St John, but this lovely 1 bedroom home. St John is a quiet, serene, laid back island. I found none of the usual Caribbean attitude here. My family takes a few trips every year and after visiting Hawaii, Aruba, St Kitts, Nevis, Nassau, St Lucia and Puerto Rico, this is, by far, the cleanest, friendliest and most beautiful of all the Caribbean islands. 3/4 of the island is a national park.

Now, for the home. To get to Coral Bay, it is a great drive through the hillsides, passing some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. The home sits above Coral Bay, and juts out from the side of the hill. The breezes run through the house all day. Three glass sliding doors open in the living room bringing the outside in. The house is brand new, clean, comfortable, convenient and absolutely welcoming. We grilled out on the deck while enjoying some rum drinks, eating breakfast and dinner on the deck. We played dominoes while watching the ships in the bay, watched the sun rise with our morning coffee and felt like we were in a dear friends home on vacation. Anything you could want was here. 2 minutes to the local food market, 3 minutes to a local eatery called Skinny legs (great burgers and beer) and 2 minutes to a local breakfast eatery called the Donkey Diner The most amazing part of this house was its view, night and day. I can not tell you how peaceful it was to sit in the hammock, feeling the breezes from the bay, enjoying a good Belgian beer and looking up at the stars at night. It was intoxicating! The owners have thought of everything. If you need a place to connect with your wife and kids, this is it. No distractions. Pure family time in a magical place.' Scott from Jacksonville, Florida

                          Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
                          We chose this spot because of it's incredible view; but also because it was close enough to the village to walk to restaurants and shops, yet far enough up the hill for plenty of privacy
