"My wife and I stayed at Stone Harbor Cottage for the first week of June to celebrate our 10 year anniversary (we were married on Tortola actually). This was our first time staying on St John and were really attracted to the idea of staying in Coral Bay because of its reputation of being more laid back and less crowded than the west and north side. But we also wanted to be close to the restaurants and market, so this cottage was the perfect place for us to feel secluded and private but also right near the "action" (as other reviewers have mentioned Aqua Bistro and the market are literally steps away). Upon arrival in Cruz Bay via ferry, and picking up our car rental, we met the property manager Mark who escorted us back to the property. Remember "Drink right, drive left". Mark made us feel right at home there and gave us some good info on Coral Bay. The property was really amazing. It was the perfect size for the two of us. We loved opening up the porch doors and letting the cool breezes flow as we had our morning coffee on the deck. We spent a lot of time on that deck, in fact we didn't even sit inside the whole week we were there. The sundeck and pool were a great way to spend time relaxing in our own private getaway. The master bedroom was nice and we didn't mind the entrance to it being downstairs from the main level. We did shower upstairs to take advantage of the larger shower and view of the bay right from the window. The kitchen was perfect for us too. We visited the market several times to stock the fridge for breakfasts, snacks, beverages, and for grilling out on the deck too. Previous guests have left spices and other local non-perishables as well. The cottage had a couple coolers as well, so we'd load those up for our daily excursions around the island. Be sure to visit the east end for great uncrowded snorkeling, Haulover North & South were our favorites on that end. Waterlemon cay was our favorite spot on the north side. And checkout the stone figures at Drunk Bay on the southeast side. We enjoyed grabbing a bite to eat and sipping drinks at Aqua Bistro and Shipwreck Landing. You can hear the live music from Aqua Bistro even after you make your way home. The locals were friendly and we really enjoyed the low key vibe of Coral Bay. We'll definitely be returning to this cottage in the future. And I recommend it to anyone looking for a perfect getaway in Coral Bay."

"We stayed here for a week, and our stay was wonderful! For the condo itself, it has a great layout, is furnished nicely, and is stocked with everything you would need. The beds are comfortable, and the condo is clean. The location can't be beat! We loved our short walks to town for dinner and drinks. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on a future trip!"

This house was located on coral bay with beautiful view looking down the beautiful water. it was quite place and well equip with every thing such as swimming pool, television, full kitchen and an outdoor shower.

The house is surrounded with natural beauty and natural breeze of the ocean. it is very clean and well organize inside and out. it is a place worth staying gain. Thanks to Sally and Mr. Franz for having such a beautiful vacation home."

"We were pleasantly surprised as we turned into the parking spot for this place less than a half mile from Skinny Legs. It has great curb appeal and the gardens are beautiful. I can only imagine how beautiful they would be during the rainy season! The interior is very tastefully decorated and really has all the amenities you need plus the added benefit of A/C in the bedroom for those warm nights. There is also a very nice covered back porch that overlooks the gardens with comfortable chairs for relaxing. We used this place as a home base for adventures all over the island. No doubt this is one of the best places to stay in Coral Bay for very reasonable rates!"
