BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO SPEND OUR 42ND ANNIVERSARY!!Guest comment entered by owner
BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO SPEND OUR 42ND ANNIVERSARY!!
Sam and Joni October 28 – November 8 2013 Huntington Vermont What a beautiful place to spend our 42nd anniversary! Despite some clouds and rain (it was November), we had a wonderful time exploring our old haunts and visiting some new ones. Skinny Legs for Halloween was a hoot, Concordia for three dollar happy hour drinks and yummy food continues to be a favorite as does Salt Pond and Francis Bay for snorkeling and their beauty. Being dog lovers and missing ours, it was great having the HARMONY dogs around and we enjoyed their owners too. The original art around the cottage just makes me happy! Great hiking – we did the ranger guided hike down reef bay trail and boat ride this time – always love Ramshead, drunk bay and finding the Boabob tree. Thanks so much Sharon and David for everything! The cottage is just great! Now back to the reality of November weather :(

THIS PLACE IS A TREASURE
Dan & Carol Guilderland, NY 18 Sept – Oct 1 2014 We have had a wonderful relaxing and beautiful two weeks here. This is our third year in a row staying at Harmony – two years at Harmony by the Pool and this time in beautiful Island Harmony cottage. We just loved spending quiet mornings on the deck, taking a short drive to Maho Beach for a few hours, coming back for a dip in the pool and then an early dinner at Aqua Bistro or Skinny Legs. A great addition this year was OASIS by the Sea. Call and place your order and it will be ready for you to pick up. Delicious and very reasonable priced. Of course, Sharon and David are the consummate hosts and make sure you have everything you need. This place is a treasure!!

WE HAD SUCH A BLAST!!!
JOHNNY AND MICHELLE July 30 to August 5 2013 Oak Park, IL We had such a blast! The cottage is lovely – everything was perfect. We loved Shipwreck Landing, Aqua Bistro, Pickles Deli, Skinny Legs, Island Blues, and Cases by the Sea (which had a super fun live music concert.) We loved getting to know the local community! Everybody was so warm and friendly and always ready to give “insider” advice. We snorkeled and if you head up towards Maho Bay, stop and get a smoothie at the smoothie stand – Yum! Free shot of cheap-o rum with each smoothie! Love City Minimart over by the trash bins has cheaper prices and good selections We relaxed at Little Lameshire Bay, which was an adventure to get to but worth it. We snorkeled Yawzi Point (the trail down is on the left, about 50 ft before the peak of the trail - it is a hike and then a shallow entry off the trail. – Definitely an adventure. Beautiful coral covered rock formations with the best fish and sea life. Watch out for the current if you go. We went to Annaberg and learned about the sugar and rum industries that make up so much of the Islands history. It definitely rounds out the island experience as it's both fascinating and sobering. The state park guide personnel are wonderful! They're very knowledgeable. Francis bay and Maho Bay are great fun for a little light snorkeling and sunbathing and both seem to be skipped by the bus loads of visitors. Thanks Sharon and Dave! Best Michelle and Johnny

ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN THE WORLD!!
June 23 - 29, 2013 Maho beach is a sure bet to see sea turtles. We saw some every day that we went snorkeling! Banana deck has the best cocktails and swordfish, the Italian Ristorante has incredible Roman pizza. Of course Woody's has the best happy hour. Live it up, you're in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

COTTAGE IS BEAUTIFUL & EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!
June 17 – 23, 2013 Jerry & Michelle Des Peres, MO We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at Island Harmony Cottage! The cottage is beautiful & everything was perfect. After a day at the beach, reading a book on the pool bench, looking at the views of Hurricane Hole & beyond was unbelievably relaxing. From the pool deck, the outline of the harbor looks like a stingray, don’t you think? We cannot wait until next time. I would recommend Maho, Francis Bay and Gibney beach to all your guests. Thanks,

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.
