"Sea Rock was a perfect place to stay. The house is located a couple hundred feet about the sea, with sweeping views from every room of Coral Bay. Two decks run the length of the first and second floors, with comfortable seating, shade if you want it, and on the top floor, outside the kitchen, is a beautiful long table for dining. The kitchen is superb, with every appliance you could want. Plus, it's got all of the basic spices, oil and vinegar, etc. so you don't have to buy these at the store. The upstairs has a cathedral ceiling with 3 fans to keep things cool, but we rarely used the fans because the view to the East brought nice breezed all day and night. The furniture is very comfy. There are 2 bedrooms -- both air conditioned - which share a bath. There are two outdoor showers, which surprised us but we quickly found that we loved them. It's great to be taking a shower while looking over a privacy screen at the ocean. The beds are comfortable and there's a lot of closet and dresser space for clothes. We didn't use them but the owner told us we could use his beach chairs, coolers and other handy items. Finally, I can't say enough good things about the owner, Dan Maitland. This was our first time in St. John and we had many questions about where to hike, where to snorkel, where to eat, etc. Dan quickly sent very thorough answers to all of our questions. And his property manager, Jared, was equally response to my queries. It's very reassuring to see this level of service on a rental property. My wife and I will definitely be back to Sea Rock. Finally, let me say how much we enjoyed staying in Coral Bay. It's a small community about 20 minutes from busy Cruz Bay. The area is much less hectic, and the area isn't built-up. There's no town center but there are 3 grocery stores, a lots of restaurants -- several of them excellent -- and a few nice stores."
