  • Wonderful little villa

    "I don't even know where to start expressing my love for this place. Blue Wrasse is a wonderful little villa with a breathtaking view of Coral Bay and beyond. Getting your Jeep into the driveway is a little hairy (though the road to the house is really nice for this part of the island!), and getting down all those stairs can be a little scary, but once you reach the house it's so worth it. The screened front porch is a great place to relax with a drink, the screened bathroom is unlike anything ever, the compact living space has all you need--a full kitchen, comfortable couch, WiFi, and the bedroom downstairs is spacious with a large dresser and bed. Sunrises are awesome here! My only criticism goes to VRBO: we had some issues getting the instructions for check-in and check-out--the VRBO app is confusing and it's promotion is spam-like, so we didn't regard it very seriously until we learned it was supposed to have all of the information we needed on getting to Blue Wrasse, finding the house key, et cetera. VRBO needs to clean up this app and promote it more clearly, especially to first time travelers like us! Fortunately the on-island managers went above and beyond by calling us before we arrived and meeting us in Coral Bay to show us to the house and how to get in. We would have been lost without them! The owner was also very helpful in providing the instructions himself when he learned we didn't get them through VRBO. Blue Wrasse is the best for couples on a budget looking to explore the beaches and trails of St. John--my husband and I truly loved our stay here!"

  • 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."

  • Will Never Stay Anywhere Else

    "This was our third time visiting the house, each time with a different group of 4 couples. Once again, it was perfect. One word and one word alone sums up the house…VIEW. The view is absolutely breathtaking…whether it be your first time seeing it, or every time coming back to the house, it just takes your breath away. The house is a perfect size for 8 adults, and we have enjoyed so many nights relaxing in the hot tub and checking out the constellations. The pool is perfect to cool off in, and the bedrooms are completely private and beautiful. It's a hike to get up the driveway, but we have always enjoyed that part in the Jeeps! We will definitely be back!!"

    "My husband and I were in desparate need of a warm,welcoming place to escape the PA winter this year.We were very fortunate to find Jane and Larry's Angels Roost. Private,clean, with lush surroundings and view of Coral Bay to enjoy with your morning coffee! This studio apartment has all the amenities needed to have a great time on St. John.Felt like coming home after each day's adventures to beaches,hiking, seeing the ruins. Close to grocery and several places to eat out. Jane and Larry are very special hosts and we felt it a privilege to share their home on this beautiful island! Hope to get back some day!"
