Recent Coral Bay reviews

  • Just beautiful - like a dream

    "My husband, my 7-year-old son and I spent a spectacular week in St. John at Sunrise Villa. We could not have asked for a more lovely getaway. The view is positively breathtaking. The nocturnal jungle sounds, the nightly storms and morning cloud shows, and even the drive up (and down!) the mountain road all made for a fun and beautiful family adventure. Coral Bay is charming and beautiful. The beaches were fabulous. The caretaker was quickly and consistently responsive to our queries. The owner called us mid week to check in and make a beach recommendation. That was a really lovely gesture. We would highly recommend this gorgeous home to those who are in for the challenge of the drive. It is more than worth-it! Another bonus: being so high in elevation, we sustained very few mosquito bites with the constant trade winds. We will return and we would love to stay at Sunrise Villa again when we do! P.S. SAVE CORAL BAY!!"

  • Loved this villa and view!

    "We just left BHOM yesterday and it was difficult to leave, not only St. John, but this wonderful villa! There were two couples and we had the first 2 floors which was very sufficient. The spacious outdoor deck on the main floor has comfy furniture and a million dollar view!!! We all felt quite comfortable there and would not hesitate to stay again. I especially enjoyed my morning coffee with the hummingbirds and bananaquits and THAT view! We could not imagine a more wonderful place to begin or end our day! The pictures are very accurate and the villa was well equipped. Enjoy!"

  • Respite from a long winter

    "Cliffhanger is a great launching pad or destination in its own right! All three bedrooms are clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated, and have to-die-for views and private bathrooms. The common space has a fourth full bathroom. The kitchen has more stuff than any place we've rented before, including a coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster, and plenty of dishes and cookware. The two decks offer a cool breeze and plenty of shade for hanging out together, or apart, and enjoying the sound of the surf and amazing view of the ocean. You could easily spend your days just chilling at the house. If you want to get out, I would drive. Although the house is very close to a few shops (including Dolphin Market-- which has excellent produce and some items I would expect to see at a high end store on the mainland), the windy road has very little shoulder, and the cars go pretty fast. If you want to go for a run, you likewise should drive someplace. (I enjoyed the rough dirt road and then trails by Great and Little Lameshur beaches.) Other recommendations: 1) You can't beat a sunrise hike up Ram Head, just beyond Salt Pond Bay. (It's nice any time, but at sunrise you'll have the trail to yourself, and likely won't have to share the beach upon your return.) 2) Rent kayaks at Crabby's and paddle to Hurricane Hole. (Go for the full day. A half day wasn't enough to take it all in.) 3) Most of us got massages by Suki, who was excellent! sukistjohn@gmail.com. We set up on the lower deck, which offered total privacy, along with a cool breeze, and the sound of the surf. 4) Getting in the water at the base of the steep wood and stone stairway from the house is challenging, but rewarding. There's decent coral along the edge in the direction of the harbor. 5) Don't miss dinner at Sweet Plaintains! (We went twice.) 6) Keep your eye open for live music opportunities. We caught some on Thursday night at Skinny Legs and wished we'd gone earlier. 7) And, of course, the beaches. In addition to the popular north shore beaches (we really liked Francis Bay, next to Maho Bay), Coral Bay offers its own gems. If you prefer a sandy beach, Salt Pond Bay and Little Lameshur are nice. If you crave solitude, and don't mid a smooth pebble beach, Great Lameshur is appealing. Denise was attentive before, during and after our trip, and the property manager graciously accommodated our unexpectedly late arrival due to flight snafus. We were well cared for!"

  • Exactly How STJ should be done

    "My girlfriend and I stayed at Simply St John 2/9/15 - 2/13/15 and can't wait to get back. The other reviews here have all the amenities covered. A couple things demand emphasis: 1. The view is perfect. From the second you walk from your Jeep (yes, rent one) through the swinging doors it's all right in front of you. The cottages are perched high up on the hill so there's nothing obstructing the view of coral bay and there's always a nice breeze. 2. Even though there is another property next door, there is a great level of privacy. It was truly the getaway we were looking for. The place is about 30 mins leisurely jeep ride from Cruz Bay past all the North shore beaches out to Coral Bay. Maho and Trunk (both awesome) are within a 10-20 min drive. Always able to fit the Jeep somewhere so bouncing around is easy. The owners have left an incredible amount of helpful information regarding beaches, restaurants, etc. and I can't wait to get back and explore some more."
