  • Lovely Private Retreat

    "We found Pelican House online and wondered if it could be as wonderful as it looked online. We telephoned with endless questions so warmly and willingly answered by Nancy & Jason. That certainly invoked confidence. We were well instructed what to expect upon arrival to ST Thomas, how to ferry to ST John & where to meet them after we picked up our jeep. How nice to make that journey knowing that after we met, we would be escorted to the house to ensure we would find the home easily. So, how did we feel upon viewing this location that we hoped would be good? IT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!! We were promptly given the tour of our space and amenities. Few places are as good as advertised but how wonderful to see our spectacular view, and numerous spaces available to fit the mood. There is an amazing gazebo with comfortable furniture that is a space I can still close my eyes and imagine myself at. A separate outdoor deck for lounging, dining & grilling are at your disposal. Or simply walk down the steps to your private beach with chairs, kayaks, life vets. You can swim, snorkel, kayak or do nothing. The sea grape trees give shade to such a lovely spot. At the house there is also a screened living/dining space that was so comfortable. Two bedrooms but it was just my husband and myself so we chose the bedroom facing the water, standing up each day to the glory of our view and sleeping to the sounds of the waves. The kitchen is equipped with all you need but if you need something just ask. Soda, water and a bottle of rum was a nice gift to get us started on our vacation! Noodles to swim with, extra suntan lotion, beach towels, folding beach chairs to take around the island all there for your use. We covered the island with our jeep and went to so many of the beautiful beaches each with different attributes and snorkel opportunities. Saw barracuda, puffer, tarpon, mutton snapper, squid, and all the colorful fish you can imagine. Market nearby for emergency but better options/prices in Coral Bay. Went to Annaberg Sugar Plantation Ruins. Interesting and loved the view too. Saw mongoose, deer, iguana. We also took advantage of Jason's services as a boat captain. He met with us and arranged a trip tailored to us. I am extremely sensitive to motion so only did part of the trip but got to see sea stars & sea cucumbers. My husband spent a full day at sea, stops & BVI. He had a blast! Thx Jason & Nancy! Enough? GO! It's private, quiet & beautiful!"

  • Everything. Perfect.

    "Everything about Angel's Roost is perfect. The view of Coral Bay is gorgeous from high in the Upper Carolina hills. Sitting at the outside table, enjoying our morning coffee was our favorite time of day, put your feet up on the railing, snap a photo and your friends will disown you :-) This was our second year here. We stumbled on the property by chance as the tanned owners were dining in a restaurant where we both work in the Northeast and happily produced a card with their rental information. Our week of choice was open in 2014, thanks to a last minute school vacation week cancellation, and it set the stage for what is now a yearly trek to the Island of St. John and especially the lazy, eclectic Coral Bay side. Jane and Larry provided us with everything we would ever need. You can tell they love their home. The personal touches are everywhere and it is SPOTLESS and seriously comfortable. We love the walk-in tiled shower, clean well appointed kitchen and beautiful arched doorways that lead to the deck. I had a daily commitment to work online and the WiFI never had a hiccup. We would watch the Weather Channel every morning as New England got dumped on with record breaking snow, so lucky to be where we were.. Every day we would go to the nearby beaches. The Upper Carolinas are a short drive away from all the white sandy beaches you would ever hope for. On the way, stop at the smoothie stand and get free rum in your smoothie - why not!? Every night, we would spend time in the area bars & restaurants, rubbing tanned elbows with tourists and islanders alike. Everyone is so friendly. I would be remiss if I didn't write more about how wonderful Jane and Larry are as hosts - and great friends. Their knowledge of the island and its inhabitants is unparalleled. They are warm and friendly, and we consider them role models on how to live on the island and enjoy life. As other reviewers have mentioned, Jane & Larry live on property, but you wouldn't know it. If we needed or wanted to chat, we simply rang the bell and they would appear. If only life were always that simple! We know we'll see them "up here" in the Summer months, but really look forward to our next visit "down there" in the Winter. Book this property, and you'll go back year after year, and you really can't give a better recommendation than that!"

  • Awesome view and amenities

    "My wife and I just returned from our first stay in St. John and Island Dreams was the perfect place for us. It's location is quiet and private and the view of Coral Bay was beautiful. We spent hours sitting by the pool and enjoying the view along with the island breeze. Beaches for snorkeling are only a short drive away. We grilled out almost every night and the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind and remember who you are, this is the place!"

  • Peaceful, Relaxing, Spectacular Views, AMAZING week!

    "Astral Ridge is beautiful!! The descriptions and pictures come to life when you walk down the steps to the spectacular views. We had plenty of indoor and outdoor living space ... for 2 people it was so luxurious! We loved that they had a few sets of snorkel gear, cooler, umbrella and light beach chairs to use. The fully stocked kitchen was perfect since we cooked in a lot and used the grill overlooking the island and bays. The sunrise from Astral Ridge can't be beat. Not having A/C was okay (in December)... they have a ceiling and free standing fan for air flow. It was very loud at night with the tree frogs and nature sounds so be sure that you like those sounds as you drift off to sleep! We loved being at Coral Bay as it was nice and quiet but there were still restaurants and shops nearby if needed. The owners were helpful and super responsive with any request or question that we had. They really go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is perfect! You will not be disappointed!!"
