Recent Coral Bay reviews
Peaceful piece of paradise. Two amazing weeks!
"We recently celebrated our son's college graduation. He selected the vacation spot and wanted to return to Adeste.
The owners welcomed us back and made sure his celebration choice was all he desired!
Mornings at Adeste were peaceful with amazing views of quiet Coral bay and Hurricane hole.
Access to the best beaches on the island were easy and close.
Several good dining choices wee close and not crowded. Picnic lunches from pickles, And access to boat rentals was just at the bottom of the hill near skinny legs.
We loved the quiet evenings playing cards and enjoying Cruzan!
Adeste is a peaceful part of paradise!"

"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've been visiting St. John since the mid-80's and have rented on every part eventually purchasing a lot on Majestic Mile. Based on our experience we were looking for a villa with down island views above Coral Bay but without the extra drive around the bay since we knew we'd make daily trips to the North Shore beaches and Cruz Bay. We chose Villa Carolina for the huge views - Coral Bay and all the way around to Jost, the vanishing edge pool/patio, the outdoor stone showers and the layout which is ideal for 2 couples. It's on the ridgeline on the uphill side of Majestic Mile. By coincidence it's just east of our lot so we were also looking forward to getting design ideas and a sense of what our views would be.
Sharon has done a magnificent job of designing and building a villa that is appropriate for the island terrain and nestled into the side of the ridge (unlike some of recent monstrosities). She took advantage of the views and used local and imported building materials like local "blue bitch" stone and thick Brazilian hardwood French doors. It is a long and difficult building process on St. John so we took notice of all the little details Sharon incorporated into the design, construction and landscaping. There is an auto-opening wrought iron gate at the entrance and although the uphill driveway starts steep the lot flattens and there is a parking pad for multiple Jeeps.
In addition to the identical suites on either side of the main room there's a third full suite on the lower level for kids or a third couple. Given the perfect weather and the lack of bugs at this elevation we left the five, arched, double French doors that open to the pool/patio open all the time which makes the entire front of the villa open to the outdoors. The morning sun rising over the BVI floods into the bedrooms and at night we enjoyed the moon and the stars over the SFD Channel.
This is a real second home for Sharon and she visits often which means that you aren't staying in a stripped down investment rental, it's Sharon's home and she has furnished and stocked it with the best of everything... Tommy Bahama themed furniture, top quality large and small appliances, tons of cookware and utensils, quality linens, the best patio furniture and all the extras like beach chairs, coolers, etc.
Villa Carolina is a gem and Sharon is a delightful owner. We'll be back!"

"This was our third trip to St. John & Coral Bay. Pink Horses is a fantastic villa. Terri was very easy to deal with during our booking process (very prompt replies) & check-in was a breeze! The villa was lovely & very clean. The breezes on the outside porch were amazing (June)....really. The kitchen is very functional & open to the entire first floor which is great if you are cooking.This is a great villa for two couples, as it has one bedroom up & one bedroom down. The air conditioning in the bedrooms functioned well. However, on a few nights of our 7 day stay, the breezes were so fantastic that we slept without A/C. We used the pool a few times after returning from the beach & the water was always just right. We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends & family. It was a 5 minute drive to the main strip of Coral Bay and close to everything. If you love Coral Bay, you will love this beautiful villa! We will definitely stay here again!"
