Recent Coral Bay reviews

  • An outstanding property and an outstanding team!

    "Other reviews detail this place and its amenities, we have nothing to add. But we want to restate that Susan and her people are wonderful. We were in great hands from the moment we started our trip (coordinating our driver at the airport, in spite of Delta) until after we left (finding and mailing back a piece of overlooked jewelry). They really do go above and beyond. For example, we had a small issue one morning with our car; the auto rental office was not open, so we called the property office to help us find assistance on our side of the island. Susan had one of her own people come over to help us. After the trip my husband and I thought long and hard about anything we would want to change, we could come up with nothing that was not trivial. Astral Ridge was truly our private little piece of paradise, if only for a week."

  • Breathtaking views from a lovely cottage

    "My wife and I stayed here for 10 days at the end of August. The property was absolutely awesome! A quaint place nestled up on the side of Bordeaux mountain. The sounds of frogs and crickets could be heard every night and we loved it. Tom and Dee where some of the nicest people we have ever met. Tom met us down at the car rental, took us to the store to purchase a few items and then showed us to the cottage. Not your typical type of service. Both Tom and Dee went above and beyond to make our stay the best that it could have been. When we visit St.John in the future we will most definitely be staying with Tom and Dee."

  • Beautiful Villa, Exactly as Expected

    "My wife and I stayed 8 days here on our baby moon vacation and found the villa to be a great value. Kitchen is well appointed for cooking meals in, and we made several lizard friends there, just keep it cleaned up or the ants will flock! Washer and dryer were very handy too since we packed light. Access from Centerline road was doable in a Toyota Yaris by just maneuvering around the few high rocks in the access road. We arrived after dark and had no trouble finding it with the clear step by step directions provided. The master bedroom did have a portable air conditioner in it but we found that it had little impact since the windows were only screened. That is the ONLY thing we would have changed, and I'm sure most of the year the temperature is perfect. We just happened to come at the hottest time of year. Even so, the breezes in the open floor plan of the main level were wonderful and kept the afternoon temps comfortable. Wifi worked perfectly for when we needed to look up places to go. Coral Bay in my opinion is the best place to stay if you're planning to spend time exploring the island as you can easily go east, west, or south to most anywhere in <20 minutes. Some rental properties included kayaks and I wish Little Palms had as well but we made due by bringing our inflatable kayak so we could explore and snorkel around Henley Cay, Whistling Cay, Mermaids Chair, and get to the Caneel resort beaches without paying for a rental or admission fees. I'd absolutely recommend the villa to my friends & family!"

  • Slice of Paradise

    "Villa Jumbie is everything this that they say. This was our second stay here and the Owners and Cimmaron ST. John do such a wonderful job of keeping this property beautiful. After a day of beaches, hiking, coming back to Villa Jumbie and relaxing in the pool or on the deck just is magic. The views of Coral Bay and the privacy made the stay like it was our own island. The donkeys, chickens, lizards, goats, and singing of frogs is just a bonus. I hate to admit it, but I am jealous and wish I could live there all the time. Thank you Tom and Karen for sharing your home with us."

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.
