Coral Bay villa description
Satinwood- a luxurious villa especially appreciated by the environmentally-conscious vacationer. Located high above Coral Bay on the East end of beautiful St. John, Satinwood is solar powered; free from ties to island's utilities. The storage battery bank and back-up generator provide reliable and earth-friendly energy for all the comforts of the finest rental homes available.
Each main level bedroom consists of 1 King size bed, complete bathroom, plus ladder accessible loft with 2 twin beds (suitable for ages 6 and up). The lower level is a complete apartment with full bath, kitchen, and King size bed.
Outside on the sunny pool deck, lounge chairs, umbrella table, and gas barbecue grill make for the perfect vacation day or evening.
Tropical trade winds provide constant cooling. Awaken to spectacular sunrises and breathtaking views. Relax and watch the sailboats from the covered deck. Inside on the main level, the Great Room features an entertainment wall with 27" color cable TV, VCR with tapes, stereo with CD and discs, books, puzzles, and games.
The unique design of Satinwood's energy and water system provides year-round comfort. Even during times of periodic drought, the massive water collection area, huge cisterns, and use of Clivus Multrum composting toilet systems assure plenty of fresh, clean water for drinking, washing, and of course, relaxing in the cool private swimming pool.

A very good place at a very good price!
A very good place at a very good price!
Satinwood is a very nice, comfortable place with a fantastic view! There is plenty of space, the kitchen is very well-equipped, beds are comfortable, the pool is a joy, and the breezes are great. It may not be as polished as more expensive places, but it was a very good deal for the money. We appreciated the fact that the house had some green characteristics. The owner and property managers were most helpful and responsive. The few improvements I would suggest would be to fix the screens (there were some holes and loose screens, though maybe trying to avoid mosquitos is impossible), and make the guests aware of how to compost the toilets. There was some issue with odor from one of the composting toilets (maybe a fan in the composting system was not working?), and once we started putting some leaves in more regularly it was resolved. I want to stress that these were minor issues, and we all very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Satinwood.

Is it possible to have a bad experience on St. John??? Well, the answer is a very loud NO. But this is my particular perspective. I'd give 5 STARS to a hammock on the beach with a million mosquito bites on my body in this paradise which is the USVI's. In this case though, the house was just as expected and described. The ONLY critique I'd have for this property would be the no A/C issue, which leads to a degree of dampness (which you will feel in the linens, your clothing, etc.), however having a "green" house with backup power more than made up for it. I've been stuck on island many times without power, for extended periods of time. Being self sufficient, off the grid, was VERY NICE. The property management that runs Satinwood is TOP NOTCH and amazingly responsive and prompt with ANY requests or issues. Probably the MOST amazing and intriguing item this house offers is the flushless/green toilets. I am in "AWE" over this. I have spent plenty of time on boats, buses, planes, and very familiar with holding tanks and "smells". First bathroom/s I have ever experienced where you can have a gastrointestinal catastrophic explosion and the next person entering bathroom would NEVER have a clue. TOTALLY SMELL PROOF TOILETS. I am still in shock. I want one for home!!!!!! Cannot go wrong with this property.

Owner response: When Satinwood guests use the term "awe" to describe their stay, it usually refers to the view ..... Satinwood's location was carefully selected and the villa was designed to be comfortable without air-conditioning. The villa faces the cool, prevailing breezes and has high ceilings and clerestories to allow those breezes to flow through and up the hill. Most guests find this refreshing and comfortable - even in mid-summer. Other locations and house designs probably make air-conditioning an absolute requirement. Satinwood's location high on a hill side also gives the villa an awesome view. Many of our guests have praised Satinwood's self-sufficiency and enjoyed having power when the grid was down. We do strive for water and power conservation practices - without unduly compromising comfort. Satinwood demonstrates how comfortably guests can enjoy the tropical paradise of St. John while using recycled products in building materials and conserving water and power. Have a wonderful island vacation!
