Relaxing, affordable Coral Bay cottage
"Great cottage for our family of four (two children ages 10 & 12). It is in a peaceful and quiet location. We slept like babies, listening to the sound of waves and nature. The owners supply everything besides food, including sheets, bath towels, beach towels, kitchen supplies. The beds all have soft mattress covers under the sheets. There is a clothes line to hang wet clothes and towels. The caretaker is easily reachable by telephone. The house is not in the middle of the tourist areas, and is a little off the beaten path. However, the island is small enough that it can be crossed in 20 minutes. We spent our days going to different north shore beaches, then happily returned to the cottage. There are very good restaurants nearby, and several food stores. The owners are very responsive and accommodating. In short, we have nothing negative to say and had a fabulous time."

"We were lucky to stay in Coral Bay for one month this year. Our first week was spent at Mountain Haven. What a tremendous way to begin. Although the photos on this VRBO site are beautiful, nothing truly prepares you for your first walk around the corner on the deck. I kept telling my husband that it was so incredibly beautiful, it looked fake! Well, it isn't. I *worked* every morning from a table and my view was expansive and breathtaking. Every day we would put out sugar for the birds and it was so nice to see them gathering to feast. The place was beautifully appointed inside and out. We found the bed to be very comfortable, the kitchen clean and full of everything we needed. The closet space was most appreciated, as it was quite large. The bathroom was very clean, the outdoor shower (it's in a separate room off of the deck) was very clean and convenient, too.
Last, but certainly not least: Part of our experience that really stood out for us this week was the hospitality and friendliness of the managers, Thom and Jackie. From the moment they welcomed us at the Ferry, we felt a bond with them. They are talkative and abound with energy and knowledge about the island. They definitely gave us our private space, but we contacted them to hang out with us on a few deck evenings, too. When we had some trouble with our rental car later in our vacation (and at this point, not even staying at Mountain Haven), we contacted them and they helped us with a solution. We were so appreciative of this and of the property owner's assistance as well. For these and many other reasons, we hope to enjoy Mountain Haven in the future. I cannot get that VIEW off of my mind!"

"We had a lovely stay at Christmas Cottage. It was great to spend so much time outside cooking and relaxing. The cottage was well equipped, and Marcia, the owner, was very helpful when we got a flat tire driving up the dirt road from the cottage. St John was beautiful too with so many amazing beaches."

"One of the best views of coral bay we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying for a week. From the moment you park your vehicle you will be amazed. The drive to the villa we didn't find difficult at all. We were in a chevy traverse and a jeep. The outside of the villa is beautiful small details like sconce lighting as you approach the front door an outdoor shower were delightful. Kitchen and great room were the hub of the home for our vaction. We enjoyed the pool and yes the amazing view. The beds were comfortable. Rooms air conditioned and tastefully decorated. Loved our shower in the downstairs king bedroom and the clothes line to dry our clothes. We utilized the washer and dryer during our stay and they provided detergent as well. Outdoor lightening was great around the property and inside the pool. Speakers were utilized via our cell phones and auxillary plug and placed near the window for listening outside. It was windy but the only thing it prevented us from doing was playing cards outside. They provided many extras that make it very convenient. Beach chairs, cooler, beach bag,beach towels hand soaps, basic kitchen needs. We utilized the grill which was strategically placed on the side of the house up a set of stairs from the pool patio area or accessable from the front entrance around to the back. We did keep the sliding doors and windows in the great room open for the wonderful breeze to come in. It did keep the room cool as this area is not air conditioned but we didnt miss it at all.
The villa manager was accomodating meeting us very early on a holiday so we could avois traffic. The villa owner was excellent in responding to questions and providing us with an early check in due to the holiday. Very well done. We travel frequently and prefer to rent villas but also stay in four and five star resorts. This was overall our favorite accomodation to date. This was a wonderful experience for our family. We hope to be back in the near future."
