The Reviews are accurate--great time at the Stonehouse!
"My family of 5 enjoyed 10 nights at The Stonehouse. Excluding the 3rd BR downstairs and around the back, the place is fantastic!
Were met at the ferry by a very nice lady from the company that manages the property who helped us grab our provisions at Star Market in Cruz Bay (you can order online and have it waiting for you if you plan well) and took us on the 20-minute drive to Coral Bay. The first step through the LR and kitchen to the view was actually breathtaking.
The rotunda is great--2 great wicker couches, a hammock and a DR table we used often. This home is near the top of the mountain so we opened the doors that separate the rotunda and the kitchen/LR and the breeze was great--didn't need A/C. When we did, the top 2 BR's had good, working AC's.
Small snafu with the hot water but owner had a plumber there the next day--very responsive and didn't affect our trip at all as the cold water isn't too cold to shower with.
The two main BR entrances are off the rotunda. The third BR below was not secured from the wildlife (geckos!)--my teens were taping some screen seems so the geckos wouldn't get it but after a few days they waved the white flag and moved upstairs to the 2nd BR. We kicked my son out and he slept on the provided Aerobed which was fine. As in an earlier post, some attention to a few small things would make this place perfect.
Coral Bay location is great--we rented a jeep from Amalie Car Rental at STT (recommend) and took it to a new beach almost every day. We made lunch the night before and packed a backpack cooler with beer, soda and water and we were off.
We cooked dinner half the nights and used the gas grill (great) and stovetop--all the tools and pots/pans you need are there. They provide you with cloth napkins--I suggest you get some paper ones.
The pool is larger than it appears on the site, and we used it almost everyday post-beach.
We lit a few mosquito repellent-type sticks(Murphy's Mosquito Sticks on Amazon--worked great) during Happy Hour in the rotunda, but we over-prepared for the bug situation. Good breezes kept the bugs at bay or we were there during a period of low activity. Didn't run into many bugs at the beaches either.
If you're looking for a great 2BR in a quieter area, the Stonehouse is fantastic and we'd rebook it in a heartbeat. Took one star away (would have taken only a 1/2 star away but the site doesn't allow that) for the third BR, but highly recommend it."

"The view is amazing. The house is well stocked and very comfortable. But like I said the view is unbelievable as you lounge on the upper decks, pool side or while grilling. The house has plenty of space as the trip included my family of 5 plus my brother and his wife. This was our second trip to St. John and Casa Luna will definitely be on our list for our next trip back.
As with any place there is always the possibility of a problem and how those problems are handled is what can make or break the best of locations. When we arrived late Saturday we were escorted to the property by Leah of Island Getaways. She led us to the property which we would not have found on our own and showed us around the Vila. After she left we began to take showers and quickly discovered we had a water issue. More specifically the cistern was almost dry and we had no water pressure. We went to the book of numbers Leah had shown us and a maintenance man was soon on his way. After confirming our situation Kathy /Island Getaways arranged for a special delivery (two tanker trucks) to refill the cistern.
After resolving the problem in a timely manner Kathy insisted on paying for dinner at a restaurant of our choosing. As I said how problems are handle is what can truly make or break the best of locations.
We had an excellent trip at a truly great villa. Between The View and Island Getaways we will recommend this to anyone going to St John.
By the way did I mention The View..."

"My wife and I stayed in Coral Bay for 5 nights and La Dolce Vita was the absolutely perfect rental for our trip. The home and grounds were meticulously cared for and had all the features and amenities we could think of. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, the hammock and the sitting area right off the water. The views of Coral Bay were incredible - we ate in most nights and enjoying the evening views from the balcony. The location is very close to markets that had everything we needed (Calabash Market was less than a minute away and was well stocked, including fresh fish and produce) and it was also a quick drive to hiking and snorkeling activities on the Eastern side of the island. Snorkeling right off the shore also offered an abundance of coral and fish. We saw sea turtles and some rays as well. Would definitely recommend for anyone but this made for the perfect getaway for two. The owners were also very friendly, informative and great to work with. We hope to return again someday."
