  • Beautiful Villa

    "Southern Cross is all you could hope for in a vacation villa, it is close to shops, dining, has incredible views and is well stocked. We were a group of 7 adults, never did we feel crowded or cramped. Crandall Management was helpful with questions or any needs. We rented two vehicles and had plenty of room for parking. This was our 3rd year in beautiful St John and we all agree that it was our best time yet! I saved the best for last, upon our arrival an envelope was on the counter greeting us along with coupons for free drinks of choice at The Lime Inn, we enjoyed a delicious lunch along with our free cocktails. We feel in love with Southern Cross I know future guest will too. 😎"

  • Wonderful cottage close to Cruz Bay

    "My wife and I spent two weeks on St. John, with a week in Coral Bay and a week at Gecko House. As small as the island is, we had totally different experiences and both were totally enjoyable. Gecko House was a perfectly comfortable home and Andrea and Joel were wonderful hosts. We especially appreciated the close easy access to Cruz Bay which allowed us to sample the night-life, yet have an easy drive back home after dark. The cottage itself had all the amenities we needed and then a little more. We were surprised how much we enjoyed the hot tub in the tropical climate, providing a perfect place for star-gazing, enjoying the garden, and relaxing weary muscles after a challenging St. John hike. Before arriving we questioned whether we would like having a screened porch rather than a deck but it was great - very private and you still felt like you were outside with a great view of Fish Bay. Although the cottage is close to the main house, they are situated in such a way that it is still very private. Andrea and Joel always respected our privacy but were handy if we needed some equipment, directions or recommendations. Andrea even arranged a sailing trip with friend Ken and they joined us for a fun day of sailing and snorkeling. We plan to return in the future, hopefully for a longer stay."

  • If You Could Only Bottle This Breeze

    "I am sadly writing this on the drive back to Connecticut. Bay House was truly lovely. It was our 3rd time visiting St John and first time renting this particular villa. The view of Coral Bay is arresting and you have opportunities throughout the villa to experience it from the balconies. The rooms are painted blue and white - very soothing. The beds were quite comfy and we arrived to beautifully arranged linen in both rooms, fresh flowers in the kitchen window and on the dining table. The kitchen was well-appointed with everything you need, including a grill right on the deck. I love tiled flooring and the villa is tiled throughout. Our 3- and 6-year old sons loved coming back from the beach to play in the pool, play the checkers set that was there, and looking out for goats! Pristine beaches were a cool 20 minutes drive away - our faves are Maho, Jumbie, and a worthwhile trail hike to Leinester. Right at the bottom of the villa is the Crabby Shack where my hubby was able to rent a kayak and take our 6-year old out for $30 for 2 hours. Excellent experience. Then 6-minutes from the villa is Carolina's Corral where I was able to take our 3-year old for a 45-minute donkey ride for $25 - he was ecstatic! Fave restaurant in Coral Bay is Miss Lucy's - 15 minutes up on the same main road as the villa. Faves in Cruz Bay - Across the Street ( wonderful fish tacos and onion rings & drinks!!) and Ocean Grill in Mongoose Grill - wonderful everything!! The most beautiful part of our weeklong stay at Bay House was the incomparable sea breeze we got - we never used the AC. Between the view and the breeze - it was divine. Terry, the property manager was gracious and patient as we endured a 2-hour Budget rental car fiasco and met us when we eventually got to our meet up point for her to guide us to the villa. She was the tight balance of attentive and responsive without being intrusive. Thank you!!"

  • Loving Life in Coral Bay!

    "We just returned from a fantastic one-week stay at La Bella Villa. This was our third trip to St. John and La Bella Villa took things up a notch with its perfect combination of location, amenities, tranquility and beauty. The Villa is a gorgeous blend of natural stone and rich woods surrounded by lush tropical foliage. The pictures simply don’t do it justice. We immediately noticed the details in the stone moldings that frame the large number of screened doors and windows that allow the cool ocean breezes to sweep through the home. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We usually cooked breakfast and an occasional lunch, with dinner spent at one of the many local restaurants. Although we never used the available TV, the access to wireless Internet was appreciated. The villa is located in the northern part of Coral Bay. We found the location to be a perfect balance between peaceful seclusion, prime snorkeling (N. Haulover Bay, Kiddel Bay and Waterlemon Cay) and occasional evening access to Cruz Bay. Coral Bay has great restaurants and watering holes to include our favorite Skinny Legs. In addition, there are grocery and convenience stores in case you run out of any essential items. In the end, La Bella Villa hit the mark for us. We spent the days snorkeling various bays/cays and came home for cocktails on the huge back porch overlooking Coral Bay. The quality beds allowed us to get a great night sleep so we could do it all over the next day. We’ll be staying here again."
