Coral Bay house description
$1200/week. RIGHT NOW offering spectacular March+ April savings for a stay of a week or longer. Call or email for more info.
Songbirds and hummingbirds are happy here, singing, floating around the deck with the cool trade wind breezes...This charming, sweet 2 level cottage with a mountainous valley view is awaiting your arrival for a week or two at a very competitive price. It's new on the rental market. It rents by the week or month. It provides wonderful privacy. The beaches are moments away... Come swim with the sea turtles in Lameshur, SNORKEL in paradise, go for a quiet swim in Francis Bay or take a dip roadside in the East End, so many possibilities!
There is one bedroom with a separate entrance across from the pool, a comfortable main living area with full bath, kitchen, living room, deck with lush views and sleeping loft, as well as a convertible daybed.
Sweet Spice has a pretty plunge pool to refresh yourself and beautiful stonework stairways with flowering tropical gardens. There is a lime tree in the garden, for making "Lime & Coconuts".
You can wander down the hill to the local, longtime organic gardens of Josephine Hugo and pick out some baby arugula, and other baby lettuces and sprouts and veges for your homemade salads or take a little drive to Shipwreck for some delicious fish specials or house pasta specials. Breakfast on the porch watching the hummingbirds is nice at the house or the Donkey Diner is always fun for a light or hearty breakfast to start out your day. I always recommend taking a sail on the Schooner, Breath, better yet, a full moon sail.

Great week at Sweet Spice
Great week at Sweet Spice
It was our first time on St. John and we stayed at Sweet Spice. A secluded cottage in the mountains with an increadible view of the surrounding valley. Accomodations were very clean and well kept with an open floor plan. The plunge pool was a nice welcome after a day exporing the island. Awesome property with a colorful array of island birds that were watched from the deck in the morning. Would definitely rent again!

A Romantic Haven

My husband and I stayed at Sweet Spice for a week for my birthday last year and it was the best gift. The house is cozy and comfortable, and very private. The dip pool was a great treat and the views were truly amazing. We spent a lot of time lounging around by the pool. There were plenty of towels, the kitchen was neat and clean. We didn't even have to buy spices as they were already there, a really nice touch. I wish we could come back every year!

We stayed at Sweet Spice for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. I definitely recommend renting a 4x4 since the driveway is a bit rough but worth it. It has a beautiful view of the mountains which can be seen from the comfy veranda. I would bring a mosquito net just in case since mosquitoes are fast and sometimes fly in when the door is opened. The air conditioning worked great, plenty of good books to read and a nice pool for dipping into on hot afternoons. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and an organic farm minutes away. A short drive to the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. I would stay there again.

Not so sweet spice.
Not so sweet spice.
It wasn't clean. Had ants, and we found mouse droppings in our bedroom. The loft didn't look like it was dusted. The towels were hard. The road getting to this villa is extremely bad. NOT at all what we thought it was going to be. We couldn't handle staying there so we decided to lose our money with this rental property, and find another one to stay at.

Owner response: It was disappointing to see this dishonest review where the guests decided the night they arrived that they wanted to be closer to town and didn't let me know until weeks later that they did not even stay at the house after renting something closer to town....They said it was clean and just a bit further out of town than they wanted, and wanted a full refund a month later. After not giving them a refund, they left a dishonest review. Its so disappointing because in the two years of renting, the house has never had a bad review. I work hard at making sure guests are very comfortable and happy. I have perfect references for the house from coast to coast. Please call if you'd like some more reviews.
Christmas at Sweet Spice
Christmas at Sweet Spice
What a gem of a property! and super affordable for a pool villa-that sleeps five. we stayed here for two weeks over christmas /new years 2009/2010--the owner was a pleasure to deal with! The gardens around the house are lovely and it is VERY private--there is not an ocean view but you get LOVELY valley/mountain views--that give you a different perspective on the island- the plunge pool was perfect for us and our kids--This is a great house for a family with kids who are fairly independent--they can sleep in the sleeping loft and you have the privacy of the downstairs bedroom. The porch was our favorite place to hang--watch the donkeys in the garden, feed the bananaquits, and watch the other bird life--we spent a lot of time out there--it's where we had our christmas 'branch'! The road in is a bit rugged, but nothing that you can't deal with --We LOVE Sweet Spice and will definitely be back!-- I understand that the owner has updated the appliances and the beds--so Sweet Spice is even sweeter now! sorry this took so long to post! Lori and Gord and family
