Fruit trees and flowing palms lead way to jungle paths that make this property a magical natural place to be. Take the path uphill to the hammock deck for a nap in the shade or stretch out on the pool deck. Peaceful and quiet, this St John Cottage is perfect for couples, honeymooners or families with young children. Full Kitchen, Air Conditioning, High Speed Internet and a screened in porch are just a few of the amenities that will make your stay at new Moon Escape the perfect choice for your St John Vacation.

                                        Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the New Moon Escape. As we bumped our way down the rocky road in our rental Jeep (absolute necessity), we were not sure what was in store. But once we arrived, we found ourselves in a peaceful oasis. There's a wonderful private hammock set up on its own deck, beautifully landscaped tropical gardens, large and breezy screened in porch, and quaint/functional interior. As a family of four (two teenagers), it was a bit small, but great for the price and it worked for us since we were outside hiking or going to the beach every day. Jared was very easy to work with while planning the trip; he responded quickly and it all went smoothly. We hope to return sometime to St. John and would stay at New Moon again.

                                        I have to say that Jared was more than accommodating, promptly responding via email to any questions that we had ( we communicated primarily via email). The house was clean and had everything we needed for our eight day stay. There were ample pots and pans, towels, etc. We liked being able to cook a few meals rather than eating every meal at restaurants. There was plenty of room for our three member family. Our teenage daughter stayed in the sleeping loft (a separate room with its own doors) and we stayed in the master bedroom. Like most places in St. John, the water comes from the rainwater run off. This property had a huge cistern and we never had any issues with enough water even wi three showers and washing dishes. The pool was small (compared to our rather large pool) but cool and refreshing. The beds were comfortable and the a/c worked quite well. We stayed in early July and only really used the bedroom a/c for sleeping. He cool breezes were enough the rest of the time. The screened in porch was also a cool place to sit and relax. You will definitely need a four wheel drive vehicle for this property. It's in "la la land", which is really what it says on the map, a road that is only partially paved with huge pot holes. It's not a problem at all if you expect it and go slow. It was well worth this drive for the peace and quite of his property. It is also well manicured. When we return to the island, we will likely try to stay here again. It's only twenty minutes into town and only a few minutes to LoveCity Market and Skinny Legs.

                                        This was our first time on the island of St. John and we wanted to find a nice quiet place for our accomodations. The pictures listed are a perfect representation of the property and we found our time there to be fantastic. From the moment we arrived on the island our property agents met us at the ferry, we followed them to this secluded location which we HIGHLY recommend because it is off the beaten path. Don't be alarmed by the goats, donkeys, or chickens you will encounter on your way - they pretty much keep to themselves and add to the islands beauty. The cottage itself was incredibly clean and cool - we didn't need to use the A/C once. There are large ceiling fans which were just what you needed to stay cool. If you need anything at all the owners are extremely responsive and very helpful. There are delicious restaurants nearby - you will need a car and definitely a truck. The road to get to the house is hilly and rocky so be prepared for offroading it - it's fun, my husband even let me drive! All in all we highly recommend New Moon Escape and hopefully will get to return one day!

                                        This honestly was our favorite family vacation. Ever. Jared met us in Coral bay and we headed up to the villa. Yes, the road is rough but we knew that going in. Plus every day on this road you will see goats (and their babies) and sometimes donkeys. The Love city market is minutes away and stocked everything we needed and were friendly. The villa itself is larger than the pictures portray. It is extremely clean, warm and homey. We did use the AC at night as that was our personal preference. The kitchen was fab and we had more than we used. The beds? OMG almost as comfy as ours at home. There is a king in the bedroom and a queen in the nook (which is actually to me a room-with a dresser etc). We never had a problem with bugs and it rained every day. The sun shone in the morning and afternoon then we got the rain. We enjoyed the screened porch and the pool deck. My gosh! The stars seem brighter there! We didn't use the pool as we beached it every day but it was clean. The yard has beautiful tropical foliage and lotsa geckos. There is no tv and thought that would be a problem but the wifi is actually excellent here. I used my laptop and we usually retired early as we really saw as much of the island every day. Jared was very gracious and patient with this 16 hour travelled yankee. We loved every moment of this trip and are counting the minutes until we can return. You will come home refreshed and relaxed. I love that we had food at our finger tips for breakfast and our son could sleep late. I also love my own coffee :) Thank you again to Jared et al. We will hopefully see you soon!!

                                        Me and my husband chose this property for our stay during our wedding week on the islands and it was fabulous. Jared was beyond helpful and accommodating - he helped us in multiple ways! The house is ideal for a couple, and the privacy is unsurpassed. We enjoyed the beautiful garden with a variety of flowers, and we really appreciated that the house had all the necessary amenities for our stay. We did not need to use the AC, even though it was available - just enjoyed the night breeze and the sound of various forest critters. I really hope we can return to St. John and this villa!

                                        Jared the the property manager was very nice, he came and picked us up at when we got off the ferry so we could follow him to the property...he gave us advise on what beaches to go to...and a restaurant where we could eat the night we got in....the property was clean and well will need to have a jeep to get back to he property because the road is pretty rough....there is internet service but no we when we wanted to watch anything after a day at the beaches we would access netflixs which worked great Sprint phone worked but my husbands Verizon phone didn't. I would recommend shopping for groceries over in St. Thomas before going to St John it is cheaper there, though there is a small grocery near the house it is pricey...expect to spend between $70-$100 (for 2 people) if you go out to eat at most of the restaurants (the food is great...service a little slow...but that is because everyone is on island time and not in a hurry)....we visited about 80% of the beaches there...all were beautiful!....we liked the less populated beaches not that any of them were overly crowded....the snorklng was great and everyone was very nice and helpful!

                                        My husband & I stayed here for a week & enjoyed every second of it. The house was perfect for us. The kitchen had everything we needed. We spent most nights on the screened in porch or on the deck by the pool looking at the stars. The pool was a perfect way to cool off after a long day on the beach or hike. We didn't need to ask for anything & we didn't have any problems. We would stay here again in a heartbeat & in fact wanted to stay another week instead of going on to Tortola.The property was clean and well maintained. No complaints!

                                        Our stay at New Moon Escape was a wonderful escape from the day to day grind. It is a remote location that allows for relaxation and privacy. The villa was well appointed with all necessary to meet the needs we required. We were comfortable and the suroundings of the island did not require the daily rush we are so accustomed to. It was very possibly our best and most relaxing anniversary trip we have had as husband and wife. Jerod was most accomodating, leading us to the facility from the barge and purchasing, for us, some breakfast fixings due to our late arrival. We would not hesitate to return.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                                        My husband and I stayed at New Moon Escape this past October. We were looking for a relaxing place away from our typical, stressful lives. We were a little unsure about booking a rental with no reviews, but boy, did we get lucky! After hearing horror stories from friends, this place was exactly as described. The only thing we were not expecting was quite the "off road experience" to get there. Pros: -It had Wi-Fi that was reliable and fast enough to Face Time our children at home. -The kitchen was stocked very well (including a few nicer things than I have at home!) -Everything was extremely clean, including the outside. -The property itself is beautiful. The pictures don't lie. I loved the tropical flowers, the growing fruit, the trail to the hammock, and the pool deck. -The beach chairs, hair dryer, and little extras really made a difference -There were plenty of maps and guidebooks that were REALLY helpful in planning our itinerary. -It was recently renovated, so all of the appliances/furniture was sturdy and clean. -There was a little convenience store really close that had most of the food we needed. The rest could be found in Cruz Bay. -Most importantly, both the property owner and manager were a dream to work with!! My e-mails and phone calls were answered promptly and fully. Jared, the property manager even met us at the ferry to take us to the rental and sent us an e-mail alerting us to weather problems regarding our upcoming trip. This allowed us to go into our vacation prepared to stay on St. Thomas for a night (Thank you tropical storm...). Because we wouldn't be able to stay on St. John for our full stay, the owner kindly refunded us the one night's rental (which he really didn't have to do.) If we had questions during our stay, Jared was actually one of those people who answered his phone ready to help. Thank you for everything, from recommendations on where to get the best food, to the best snorkeling/hiking locations. Cons: -The home is located in a remote area and requires 4 wheel drive on dirt roads to get there. But, in all fairness, I don't really know of any properties in Coral Bay that wouldn't. It seems to be the way the island is. I just wish we would have known beforehand. -There was no microwave. We made it work and was not a detriment, just something that would have made it a bit easier. -We went during off season, so a bunch of restaurants on that side of the island were closed Thank you!!
