    "Just returned from a two week stay at Villamahr and the property was everything it was advertised to be and more. We also rented a vehicle from Scott and it was big enough for 4 adults and all our luggage. ( 2 Weeks, we had a lot of luggage). We had no problems traversing the steep roads and trails on the island and got pretty good gas mileage considering all the hills. We stayed in unit 4 and found it to be clean and in great shape, comfortable king size beds and plenty of windows for breezes while we slept. Never hot or cold in the house. The living area is big and the kitchen has everything you need. The view off the porch is just hard to describe. It is truly panoramic with views of the water and surrounding hill sides. The pool was clean and a great place to hang out but with all the beautiful beaches so close by we did not use it all that much. This was a very comfortable home to stay in for two weeks. We met our neighbors in unit 3 and they said there unit was awsome to. It would take to long to mention all the cool things to do on the island but the beaches are some of the most beautiful we have ever seen. We visited 8 different ones all over the island and never traveled more 15 or 20 min. to get there. The ones on the north side tended to be more crowded. The east end of the island is the place to stay, less crowded and very laid back. Villamahr is also very close to all the stores and cool places. We cannot wait to get back."

  • Absolute Paradise!!!

    "If you choose Cliffhanger, you will never want to leave, I promise. This was our first time to St. John and I know we would never want to stay anywhere else. We loved staying in Coral Bay...it was quiet but close to everything we could want in terms of restaurants, groceries, beaches and snorkeling. Coming home to this spectacular house every day was truly luxurious. The views are incredible, the house is gorgeously decorated and you will want for nothing. My husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary here and each day we would come home and talk about what a fantastic respite Cliffhanger was at the end of a day at the beach. We raved about it so much, my in-laws have already booked a trip to Cliffhanger for Jan. Truly, it really doesn't get any better. For those who like water access right from the house and are comfortable with steep stairs...we swam & snorkeled right from the bottom of the stairs...an easy rocky entry and great explorations. Denise, the homeowner, is one of the best property owners I have ever worked with. Jared and Austin, the property managers, were fantastic as well. I can't wait to return, and bring the kids next time!"

  • Romantic! Amazing views!

    "We stayed here for six days and it was pretty great. We walked to Skinny Legs, enjoyed nature's wake up calls in the form of roosters, donkeys and goats - who would walk along the side of the house. There is a lovely patio, a kitchen with a large refrigerator and it's in a good location for visiting the various beaches on the island. Plus it's nice to have your our pool. Miss Lucy's was great as was Salt Pond for snorkeling."

  • Wonderful

    "This is a wonderful island house in a quiet location. Sensational views from an airy deck. Just a short hop to the good eateries in Coral Bay. The swimming and snorkeling made for a perfect vacation."

Coral Bay Travel Tips

Visitors to Coral Bay Vacation Rentals

Coral Bay of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands is arguably one of the most laid-back places on earth. With beautiful island views and a warm year-round tropical climate, you won’t be on the island very long before you are enjoying the slower pace of life. It’s a place people come to in order to escape the busy corporate and city life. Many even return and make this their permanent home.

Enjoy a Stylish Vacation at Coral Bay Villas

While the town may have the laid-back and rustic vibe, the villas in Coral Bay are anything but. Spacious, beautiful villas set up on the hilltops exude elegance and style. Huge open decks that look out across the bay and lush tropical gardens provide a slice of luxury in a pristine natural setting. Most are equipped with entertainment centers and a host of modern conveniences. Some also offer a housekeeping service which means you don’t even need to worry about catering meals or having to shop for groceries. You can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the island.

Best Time of Year to Visit Coral Bay Resorts

When the climate is tropical you can choose to visit any time of year. The days and nights are always warm and there is little difference between the seasons. The only time of year you need to be a little weary is late summer when tropical storms blow across the Caribbean. The summers have slightly higher humidity levels because it’s the rainy season. However, thundershowers are usually isolated and clear up quickly. In general, you can expect warm sunny days and balmy nights typical of a tropical island.

Things to See and Do in Coral Bay

Coral Bay has one of the most protected harbors in the Virgin Islands. Hurricane Harbor is an anchorage for numerous sailing vessels, some of whom are permanently docked in the bay. Located on the southeastern side of St. John, Coral Bay used to be the main commercial center on the island. When the ferry service was started to Cruz Bay on the other side of the island, much of the commerce and development of St. John shifted across there too. It’s not entirely a bad thing as now you can get to enjoy Coral Bay with all its rustic charm. It’s a close-knit community and in no time, you are made to feel at home.

There are a number of excellent restaurants where you can enjoy some local food. Most have quirky names; regardless if it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner you are looking for, it’s sure to be an experience. At the same time, you can catch up on the local gossip and experience what it's like to live in this island paradise, even if only for a short while.

The Emmaus Moravian Church is one of the town’s historical landmarks. It once stood on the grounds of the Caroline Estate plantation. For a leisurely afternoon out, head down to the harbor area and charter a yacht for a sunset cruise excursion. As the yacht sails around the coast, you can cool off by diving into the warm turquoise sea and return to a chilled cocktail on board. Snorkeling and diving excursions can also be arranged. If you want to explore a little, you can follow the winding roads that crest the hilltops and stretch out for miles along the coast. The only traffic jams you are likely to experience here are a few donkeys crossing the road.
