Heaven on Earth
"The Island Cottage was an amazing find. It was centrally located for all of our island excursions. There were nearby restaurants. It was quiet and excluded without being away from everything. Very comfortable. Air conditioner in the master bedroom worked great! Absolutely nothing that I can say was missing. EXCEEDED MY HIGH EXPECTATIONS."

"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!"

Outstanding choice for active couple seeking seclusion.
"We stayed eight nights at Coral Bay Cottage in October. We absolutely loved it! It is perfect for a couple who wants to get away from it all. The cottage itself is charmingly beautiful, well-maintained, clean, and comfortable. The setting is wonderful, with great views. We were immediately struck by how open and airy the cottage is, with windows all the way around. That was a real plus for us, as it made us feel far more connected to the surroundings. (We enjoyed watching rainbows appear over the valley as early morning showers moved through! And we loved seeing the tropical plants and flowers and trees around and near the cottage.) Fans including a large ceiling fan were available when we needed them, but usually there were ocean breezes coming up from the bay. We slept well every night. There are grocery stores and some great restaurants in Coral Bay, so except for our arrival and departure from the island, we never went into Cruz Bay for anything. On the other hand we went daily to the gorgeous beaches including Trunk, Maho, Hawksnest, Cinnamon, Salt Pond, etc. Fantastic snorkeling. Perhaps most of all we really appreciated the great warmth and hospitality of Melody, the owner, who lives close by. She made us feel incredibly welcome, and was always available if we needed anything. We would very gladly stay at Coral Bay Cottage again!"

"We loved every minute at the cottage. Very quiet location, close to beautiful beaches, and off the beaten path. The studio was everything like the pictures showed. Toured the main cottage and it was really cute too. Most days we went hiking in the morning, hit the beach in the afternoon, and came back to cottage to make dinner, while listening to some music and enjoying a glass of wine or two on the deck. Doesn't get any better then that! If we go back to St. John, we will definitely stay there again. Liz was very helpful and we enjoyed talking with her."
