Recent Coral Bay reviews
A vacation in paradise!
"My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a week of quiet, relaxation in St. John. We fell in love with Coral Bay- and Bambooshay was perfect for us. Amazing location with excellent views and great amenities for a great vacation. We went into Cruz Bay a few times and always returned to Coral Bay thankful that this was were we were staying. Much more relaxed, peaceful, secluded. The villa had a kitchen that had all the cooking appliances and dishes that we needed. We went by the grocery store before arriving and stocked the refrigerator...and were surprised by the staple items that were fresh and already in the refrigerator. We snorkeled each day on a new beach. The reviews and info Scott and Lori have given are great tour guides. We were intrigued by the island wild life and enjoyed watching donkey's, deer, goats, chickens, and more cross the road at anytime! The beauty of the island was enough to make us want to return one day...maybe with our children next time! Thank you for an amazing week that we will never forget!"

"I stayed at Waterlemon villa, Coral Bay, St John in May, 2015 with my Mom, Aunt and sister. We had a fabulous time! Don't let the lack of air conditioning scare you away. You do not need it at all! The breezes coming in were sufficient. The screened in porch was a great place to hang out with cool breezes even though it was 85 degrees outside. The view was to die for! The house has island decor and has ample dishes and cooking utensils. The beds were very comfortable. My outdoor showers were a hit. We did enjoy the pool also. The owner of the villa was very nice and accommodating and always responded to may e-mails promptly.
You can get to some of the best beaches in a short amount of time. Coral Bay has nice restaurants and a grocery store. We stayed half the time in Coral Bay and half in Cruz Bay. It seemed like we were on two different islands. Coral Bay is much more quiet and laid back. I highly recommend Waterlemon Villa."

"One of the best views of coral bay we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying for a week. From the moment you park your vehicle you will be amazed. The drive to the villa we didn't find difficult at all. We were in a chevy traverse and a jeep. The outside of the villa is beautiful small details like sconce lighting as you approach the front door an outdoor shower were delightful. Kitchen and great room were the hub of the home for our vaction. We enjoyed the pool and yes the amazing view. The beds were comfortable. Rooms air conditioned and tastefully decorated. Loved our shower in the downstairs king bedroom and the clothes line to dry our clothes. We utilized the washer and dryer during our stay and they provided detergent as well. Outdoor lightening was great around the property and inside the pool. Speakers were utilized via our cell phones and auxillary plug and placed near the window for listening outside. It was windy but the only thing it prevented us from doing was playing cards outside. They provided many extras that make it very convenient. Beach chairs, cooler, beach bag,beach towels hand soaps, basic kitchen needs. We utilized the grill which was strategically placed on the side of the house up a set of stairs from the pool patio area or accessable from the front entrance around to the back. We did keep the sliding doors and windows in the great room open for the wonderful breeze to come in. It did keep the room cool as this area is not air conditioned but we didnt miss it at all.
The villa manager was accomodating meeting us very early on a holiday so we could avois traffic. The villa owner was excellent in responding to questions and providing us with an early check in due to the holiday. Very well done. We travel frequently and prefer to rent villas but also stay in four and five star resorts. This was overall our favorite accomodation to date. This was a wonderful experience for our family. We hope to be back in the near future."

"Perfect cottage for a getaway! Location is perfect -- you feel far away but you are really just minutes from the stores and restaurants of laid back Coral Bay. Cruz Bay is just over the island which the locals think is SO FAR but compared to my daily commute it's nothing :)
Coffee with the iguanas in the trees off the deck each morning was a treat!
It's a very open floor plan which is great for air flow, but just be aware that bathroom/bedroom are connected if you are someone who wants a lot of privacy :)"
