Graced with beautiful views and breezes and perched in the hills overlooking Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands, 'Island Harmony Cottage', is a beautiful and affordable, light and airy 780 sq foot 1- bedroom 1-bathroom Caribbean cottage. “Island Harmony Cottage” is located in the peaceful fenced and gated couples retreat named ISLAND HARMONY which boasts a centrally located shared pool/cabana/deck offering a dynamic view of the Village of Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole, and the British Virgin Islands. Cool off in the 9’ X 14’ pool or lounge around on the custom built pool bench with your feet dangling in the water and your favorite book. An ample pool cabana and deck provide that perfect pool side shady spot for an afternoon nap or happy hour libation.

In addition to Island Harmony Cottage, the Island Harmony complex consists of the owner’s main house, it’s downstairs pool-side vacation rental apartment named “Harmony by the Pool” (VRBO 324722) and the “Pool Cottage” (occupied by a long-term local business couple) Island Harmony rents to couples only and is very quiet and peaceful

Enjoy your morning coffee on your private covered outdoor dining porch as you gaze out over Coral Bay into the British Virgins or while feeding the sugar birds under the swaying palms by the pool.

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Welcome to the Island Harmony community. David and I are so pleased to have you and will make every effort to ensure your stay with us is enjoyable. We are also most happy to provide you with all the peace and privacy you might require. By way of a very brief introduction, I have been an islander since I was 7 years old. My family arrived by freighter in 1959 and proceeded to build a family run business consisting of a West Indian style guest house and restaurant overlooking the sea on St Croix. Every child’s dream come true, my childhood friends were monkeys, talking birds, horses, and all the wonders that the sea affords, coupled with a fresh array of new faces visiting from all around the world every week. What a privilege and adventure! In 1984, David who had been bare boating in the Caribbean for many years, came home from a vacation and put a sign in his front yard that said simply 'EVERYTHING FOR SALE” and some short time later, he boarded a plane to St John with his wife, 2 young children and 20 duffle bags of belongings to start his island adventure living aboard a Morgan 42 sail boat in Coral Bay Harbor. He proceeded to build a successful building contractor's business for the next 26 years and many of the lovely homes and rental Villas on the island are his handiwork. Now nearing retirement, he is focusing on our long and short term rental homes and maintenance jobs. Sharon & David

                  Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
                  David and I designed and built this property together 1994. If I can sum up the dream, which I named Island Harmony many years before it became a reality, it was to design, and build a harmonious, beautiful environment that affords peace and tranquility for all its occupants. You are most welcome to join us! We look forward to meeting you and sharing this special island paradise.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  WHY CORAL BAY? Coral Bay is on the “quiet side” of the island. We still have donkeys, goats, chickens, and iguanas roaming our streets. Our sleepy little village is populated with some of the friendliest locals you will find on St John. Sit at the bar and make new friends easily. Another really great feature of this side of the island is that we face the British Virgin Islands, arguably some of the best sailing in the world. The views are dotted with outlying islands and white sails along with the occasional cruise ship meandering by. We are a short 10 - 15 minute drive from the fabulous and pristine North Shore Beaches and have a wonderful assortment of shops bars and restaurants. All very relaxed and tropical. This is simply as close as I, Sharon, could get to my childhood on the island of St Croix as it was in 1959.
