  • Our Winter Escape to Rhumb Runners

    "We (a Medicare eligible but far from immobile couple) returned to our hill farm home in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region late Saturday night, Feb. 28, 2015 from a week at Rhumb Runners to find that the brutal, relentless winter we had escaped was still going strong. That week was a wonderful respite and Rhumb Runners, the Coral Bay area and the east end of St. John were what made it so. Perched high above a busy area next to Coral Bay harbor (up 5 switchbacks on a challenging, but paved, road, which our Jeep Wrangler from Cool Breeze rentals was able to handle when dry without resort to 4-wheel drive, absolutely required when the road was wet or in some other situations encountered), Rhumb Runners was ideal for us. Rhumb Runners is private, bright, clean, roomy, airy (no shortage of wind), with exceptional views of the harbor, east end and the BVI beyond, and a nice, very private pool. Chris and Mike were ideal hosts, took care of small problems (e.g., replacing a new, but non-functioning microwave) and interesting company to be with, although after introducing us to the place, they let us have our space to ourselves. Aside from occasional showers (mostly brief downpours in the middle of the night), the weather was good (much better than NH!!!). We had dinner each night at local restaurants, examples: best conch fritters in 18 years BVI and USVI experience at Miss Lucy’s; great grilled yellow snapper escobiche at Concordia; best seared tuna had anywhere at Aqua Bistro. We enjoyed the local beaches: Salt Pond (a hike downhill, uphill back), Round Bay (called Haulover south, uncrowded and steps from your car) and Vie’s at Hansen Bay in the east end (an uncrowded, sandy beach for which a donation of $2.50 per person was requested and happily provided). We also went to Waterlemon Bay beach (requires a level hike of maybe 2/3rds mile in and out, but what was said to be best snorkeling was too far out for swimmers of our level). Driving by other north shore beaches to the west we found that they mostly lacked sun early in the day and became very crowded later. So, to sum up, we had a great week and very much enjoyed our stay at Rhumb Runners, which we highly recommend."

  • Amazing Views

    "We researched for over two months, and fell in love with the view of the island online and then in person. The view from Villa Tiffany is the best on the island; I will treasure this memory for a lifetime. Tim and I had a wonderful trip to the island, enjoyed the beaches and sailing trip to Jost Van Dyke, with Calypso. We enjoyed the hot tub, and Tim the pool, a little too chilly for me. The road to the villa was not that bad using the Jeep Wrangler four door from O’Conner Jeep Rentals, was bumpy we were able to climb the road up without using the four wheel on several occasions. The only complaint is the water took a while to warm up. Truly enjoyed the outdoor shower we are now ready to build one! Thanks again to the owners for allowing us to stay at your villa. Ida & Tim"

  • Great spot!

    "This was our first stay at Periwinkle but not the first in Coral Bay. We loved the cottage. Everything about it! Views are great, deck, pool, hot tub, grounds and very private. We'll definitely go back!"

  • Best Vacation Ever

    "This was the second time my husband and I stayed in Jackie,s Studio. The condo is very clean and comfortable. It has the best view and is in the perfect location, walking distance to many great restaurants and bars. We loved having cocktails at the Drink in Grand Bay again with a beautiful view of Cruz Bay. Susan was extremely helpful in getting us settled, stopping at the grocery and liquor stores. We are already planning a return trip next year."
