Coral Bay villa description
Dramatically perched over the calm Caribbean Sea, "Cliffhanger" presents stunning views across Coral Harbor and into Hurricane Hole. Completely re-modeled and professionally decorated in 2011, this waterfront villa offers everything new; a new modern full kitchen with all the amenities, new bathrooms with stunning detail, and all new furniture, appliances, and electronics. "Cliffhanger" is ideal for couples and perfect for families, as it comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests with its 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Gaze into the mesmerizing blue and watch boats from all parts of the globe as they glide through the turquoise waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Spot turtles and sting rays from the sprawling dramatic deck while mixing drinks at the outdoor bar. Cheer on sailboat races from the comfort of your hammock.
"Cliffhanger" is located waterfront to Coral Bay with surf sounds around the entire property. From the villa you can easily access the Virgin Islands National Park and white sand beaches for hiking, water sports such as sailing, snorkeling, or diving, or just plain lounging on the beach. The Village of Coral Bay is just under 1/2 mile away, with many shops, restaurants, bars, and access to an array of adventurous activities. The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.
Conveniently located with paved access to the front door, high speed internet, cable TV, soft linens, spacious decks both in the sun and in the shade, big blue ocean views from every room, and lush outdoor environment; these are but a few of the features that make "Cliffhanger" the perfect choice for your St. John vacation.

We called this our Griswald vacation, simply for the unusual happenings that didn't stop - cancelled flights, lost luggage, rain for first half, etc. Then there was Cliffhanger where we always could escape the adventures. This was our second trip to St John. The ease of getting in and out of the villa was an enormous advantage over climbing up a mountain back and forth. The house has everything you need, plus a romantic porch where we got engaged. We stayed up almost all night our last night wishing that we didn't have to leave. Bring good insect repellant, someone you care about, and stay as long as you can, then add two days. Ps. There are two ways to Coral Bay - over the mountain is the quickest and probably the least challenging, but the outside route is definitely the most scenic. Denise communicates promptly, keeps you informed, and Jared takes care of everything local. You won't need anything more!

Beautiful Views and Spectacular Villa
Beautiful Views and Spectacular Villa
My wife and I spent a wonderful week this beautiful villa. The location on Coral Bay is absolutely stunning, with views of the BVI's, beautiful sunrises, and is extremely well appointed. Every space on the property is well though out, including the outside living spaces, and inside lounging. Even the parking pad is user friendly(as opposed to many in this area), and provides a terrific view when returning from the islands many beautiful beaches. Many very good restaurants within minutes from the villa(Aqua Bistro, Shipwreck Landing, Miss Lucy's), and is closer than Cruz Bay to many beautiful beaches(Maho Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Hawksnest Bay). Property manager and owner truly make the stay at this spectacular villa a vacation to remember. They provide communication before and after the stay making sure everything goes well. We look forward to our yearly vacation to this beautiful island, and now to further enjoy our stay by returning to Cliffhanger, and highly recommend to others.

Owner response: Thank you for the wonderful review. When we started our renovations, the large parking pad was one of the first things we added on. Based on our past experiences with difficult parking situations, we wanted our home to be a place to get away from stress, not add it! We are happy you were able to enjoy all that Coral Bay has to offer. Seeing a guest return year after year is the highest compliment we can earn. We look forward to your next visit.
Spectaular week at Cliffhanger

My family spent the week at Cliffhanger. The house was beautiful, clean and well appointed. Could not find a single thing that was missing or needed! Coral Bay is the perfect location. A little quieter than Cruz Bay but with great restaurants, views and beaches. Denise is very attentive to all of your needs. She checks in with you (before and after your trip), answers questions,offers suggestions or helps in any way she can. Lovely house and lovely host. Would highly recommend!

Owner response: Thank you for the nice positive review. We were happy to hear that Cliffhanger met all your expectations. Coral Bay offers so much...close to many great restaurants and beaches. Salt Pond is about a 7 minute drive and the start of the famous North Shore Beaches can be reached in about 10 minutes. We are happy to hear you were able to take advantage of it all! It was a pleasure working with you. Please come back and visit us again!
This was our first visit to St. John. We were a group of 4 friends. We're frequent travelers, have rented villas around the world and the Cliffhanger has to be by far our favorite to date. The villa is beautiful, clean, well equipped and in a perfect location. We loved Coral Bay. We are already planning our trip back. We highly recommend the Cliffhanger. Thanks to Denise and Jared for making this one of our most relaxing and stress free vacations.

Best Views On The Island!
Best Views On The Island!
I rented Cliffhanger to host a group of working writers for a 10-day stay and it was perfect. The views off the deck stretch across the harbor and out to sea, they go on forever. House is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and the stone stairs down to the water made it easy to go for a morning swim everyday. The owner is lovely to work with and the House Manager was attentive and responded right away to every request. The house is walking distance to Shipwreck Landing, a great Coral Bay pub, and the small rocky beach right next to it. My guests found it the perfect quiet place to write, they didnt want to leave! I have rented houses all over the island for the past 20 years and this one is definitely a winner, we will be renting Cliffhanger again!

Owner response: The ambiance and location of the Cliffhanger provides for a truly relaxing, quiet vacation. We are happy to hear you and your guests were able to get some uninterrupted writing in. Looking off the deck out into the distance was sure to inspire! Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to your next visit to our home.
PSD Great Vacation!!!
PSD Great Vacation!!!
Finally, a vacation villa that is better than the pictures, way better! What I love about this place is that it is perfect for all types of getaways- romantic vacation for two, couples, and families. There are 3 bedrooms, each with a private bath and a fourth bathroom in the kitchen and livingroom area. The whole house is professionally decorated, that it gives you a home away from home feeling. Sometimes we like to cook and the kitchen is the nicest we have had in any villa. As for the views, simply breathtaking. Morning coffee on the deck was a treat every day. Grilling on the deck was another treat when we took a break from going out to eat. You can spend your whole time at the villa, but if you must venture out, retaurants and beautiful private beaches are nearby in both directions. Whether you want activities or just want to relax, Coral Bay is the right place. This villa even has the best island music selection you will ever see. I will be back, hopefully sooner than later.

Owner response: Thank you! When we get the chance to visit, we are often torn between relaxing on the deck listening to music (or just the surf) and looking at the beautiful water with the distant islands in the background OR doing one of the many activities that are available on St. John. We usually end up leaving for several hours to do something fun, with the anticipation of a return to relaxing once again! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to Cliffhanger, and look forward to your return!
My husband and I traveled 24 hours from the west coast to celebrate our 30th anniversary at this beautiful home, and it could not have been more perfect. We had the pleasure of having it for 2 weeks, so we had time to wind down to island living and completely enjoy. This home was every bit of what we hoped for and more than we expected. They've provided all the comforts you can imagine from the kitchen to the beautiful walk in showers, the bar on the deck, the comfortable furniture, coolers and beach chairs to take to the beach, cd's of island music to play on the ihome. You name it, it had it. We stopped at the store to stock the frig, that was it. - The caretaker of the home was great as well. Just a phone call away if we needed anything.He had done a beautiful job on steps down to the beach. It is a rocky beach, so take your water shoes. Every beach on the island is perfect and the snorkeling was fantastic! And don't forget to hike Rams Head, Reef Bay trail and Johnny Horn trail! The views are spectacular!! Again, we could not have asked for a better location and can't wait to go back!

Owner response: Thank you for your wonderful feedback and for choosing our home to celebrate your 30th Anniversary. We hope when you finally arrived at Cliffhanger, walked through the front door and saw the view that you would be enjoying for two weeks, all travel stress immediately melted away! The path down to the water was the latest of our property renovations. There is nothing like relaxing on a chair down near the water after a hard day of exploring all that St. John has to offer. The island has many different hiking trails to choose from with varying difficulty levels. There is something right for everyone. Ram's Head is one of our favorites, too. What better way to cool off after a wonderful hike then a swim at Salt Pond Beach. Happy Anniversary! We look forward to you coming back and staying with us again!
Our stay at Cliffhanger was beyond belief! The description of the house was right on. The home and setting are gorgeous! You walk into the home and face Coral Bay straight ahead. You are surrounded by beautiful vistas of the bay and surrounding mountains and horizons from every window.. The house is immaculate and very comfortable and stylishly decorated. Everything is designed for your ease and comfort. Quaint little touches like the red hummingbird feeder and hammock add a homey touch. The central location is perfect for excursions to south and also north beaches and just minutes away from Coral Bay restaurants. I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone who loves a gorgeous house in a gorgeous setting and location. We divided our meals by grilling in on some nights or other nights went to all the excellent Coral Bay restaurants. Denise, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful in answering any questions. I'm ready to go back.

Owner response: Thank you for taking such great care of Cliffhanger during your stay, and for your kind words. We really did enjoy putting our home together, and are constantly on the look out for the "perfect" pieces to go in every corner. You are right...there is nothing like relaxing on the hammock in the morning or after a long beach day and watching the hummingbirds with the beautiful blue water in the background. We try to offer a pleasant stay to our guest's by helping them out with whatever they may need. I am glad you were able to relax! Please come back and stay with us again!
The perfect graduation celebration!
The perfect graduation celebration!
The villa was amazing! We spent about 50% of our waking hours sitting on the deck...we all loved it! I took about 100 pictures from the deck of clouds, rainbows, sunrise, sunset, the Coral Bay Thanksgiving Regatta and iguanas hanging out in the trees next door. The last night we laid out on deck chairs and watched the moon and stars. We even saw the moons of Jupiter through the telescope. The house had everything we needed and more. It was so great that we cooked most of our meals right there. The sound system came complete with 15 or so CDs of island music. I think we listened to all of them...I am trying to re-create the experience with Bob Marley Radio on Pandora right now! The owners were wonderful and the on-island property manager was very available if we needed anything. Beaches and restaurants in close proximity. We will certainly be back!

Owner response: We were honored to be part of your Graduation Celebration and happy to provide an experience to remember. It was wonderful that you were able to take advantage of the open deck space both day and night. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our island music collection. There is nothing like listening while you are cooking, relaxing, gazing or even dozing! Please come stay with us again.
Perfect Family Vacation
Perfect Family Vacation
This was a beautiful house with a beautiful view. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Everything was perfect, the house, the walkways, the decks, the hammock, the parking spot (that may sound funny, but a parking spot on an island is very important!) and it was very private. Every detail was thought of. From coolers and chairs for the beach, to candles and an ipod docking station for stargazing from the deck. The house was set up perfectly for a family vacation. I loved that the bedrooms were downstairs and each had their own bathrooms, separate from the master bedroom on the main floor, it gave everyone privacy. Everything was fresh, clean and beautifully decorated. The property owner and the property manager were great to work with. They really cared about our vacation and kept in touch with us before, during and after our trip to make sure we had an enjoyable visit. I would definitely recommend this home. It is not really suited for families with small children due to the stairs and the separation of the bedrooms, but it is perfect for a family with older children or for 2-3 couples where you would enjoy the privacy of separated bedrooms. The kitchen was fabulous. With 6 of us, we were able to have family dinners each night with enough space for us all to be in there together preparing and cooking (or lounging in front of the TV) and not be right on top of eachother. It had every kitchen gadget that you would ever need. The island was great for preparing lunch for the days adventure. I could lay out all the bread and make 6 sandwiches all at once! We went snokeling almost every day and went to almost every beach from Honeymoon bay to Waterlemon. We even rented boats from the Westin Resort and spent a day hopping along the coastline stopping at different places. St, John is so beautiful!! This was our third trip to St John/St Thomas and we can't wait to come back again, and when we do we will be staying at Cliffhanger!
