"Pink Horses is a beautiful property located on a steep hillside in one of my favorite spots in the world, Coral Bay. Upon arrival on STJ and picking up our Jeep from Amy @ Amalie Car Rentals, we drove to Red Hook and hopped the ferry. Upon arrival in Cruz Bay, we provisioned at Starfish Market, then drove to Coral Bay and met Nancy, the property manager for Pink Horses. She led us to Pink Horses, up a paved road, then turned onto a semi-paved road that was rugged in a few spots. A Jeep is the preferred vehicle. The bumps and bounces were worth it once we arrived at Pink Horses....lovely house, fabulous views, delightful breezes, comfortable chairs on both decks to drink in the scenery. Nancy was very kind to show us the house and explain its workings. The house has been well maintained and is extremely clean. A search of the kitchen cupboards reveals plenty of dishes, pots and pans, cooking and eating utensils. Our bedroom with King bed had plenty of clothing storage, nice linens, a very nice adjoining bathroom with an indoor AND outdoor shower with a view. The guys watched a football game one night in the living room with large screen tv. Our friends' room on the lower level was also nice and comfortable with a detached bathroom. There was not a lot of clothing storage in that room. We used the washer mid-week; it works flawlessly and helps cut down the amount of clothing one needs to bring. There is also a dryer, but we used the breezes. We had a minor plumbing issue in the master bathroom, but a call to Nancy's husband, Ernie, had the leak repaired lickety-split quick. We appreciated his timely response. The pool is enticing, especially after several hours at any of the nearby beaches. One day, we played Skip-Bo on the rear patio, still outside but away from the breezes. The plantings around the house are beautiful, and there are lots of birds! The house's location is also near many good Coral Bay restaurants...Aqua Bistro, Indigo Cafe, Concordia Cafe. Cruz Bay is a 25 minute scenic drive with more restaurants...we always patronize Ocean Grille...and lots of nice shopping. Go see Kima at Out of The Blue and treat yourself to a nice piece of jewelry made on STJ as a reminder of your visit to this lovely island. Kudos to Terri, PH's owner, who is conscientious about returning one's calls, answering any questions and responding to emails. If possible, we will return to Pink Horses sooner rather than later. Thank you, Terri!"
