"What a wonderful get-a-way spot overlooking beautiful Cruz Bay on St John. The condo is immaculate and the view from the large, wrap-around balcony is just spellbinding. We walked to a different beach-front restaurant each evening for the entire week we were there. Jeep rental was easy and right next door which gave us access to a different secluded St John beach each day.
No question ... we would recommend this property to anyone!"

"We were lucky to stay in Coral Bay for one month this year. Our first week was spent at Mountain Haven. What a tremendous way to begin. Although the photos on this VRBO site are beautiful, nothing truly prepares you for your first walk around the corner on the deck. I kept telling my husband that it was so incredibly beautiful, it looked fake! Well, it isn't. I *worked* every morning from a table and my view was expansive and breathtaking. Every day we would put out sugar for the birds and it was so nice to see them gathering to feast. The place was beautifully appointed inside and out. We found the bed to be very comfortable, the kitchen clean and full of everything we needed. The closet space was most appreciated, as it was quite large. The bathroom was very clean, the outdoor shower (it's in a separate room off of the deck) was very clean and convenient, too.
Last, but certainly not least: Part of our experience that really stood out for us this week was the hospitality and friendliness of the managers, Thom and Jackie. From the moment they welcomed us at the Ferry, we felt a bond with them. They are talkative and abound with energy and knowledge about the island. They definitely gave us our private space, but we contacted them to hang out with us on a few deck evenings, too. When we had some trouble with our rental car later in our vacation (and at this point, not even staying at Mountain Haven), we contacted them and they helped us with a solution. We were so appreciative of this and of the property owner's assistance as well. For these and many other reasons, we hope to enjoy Mountain Haven in the future. I cannot get that VIEW off of my mind!"

"We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our recent St. John visit. If you want to experience the island as you might if you were a local, this is perfect. Walking distance to Dolphin Market (for your various essentials) and all restaurants, bars, and shops in Cruz Bay & Mongoose Junction, it made all our errands & meals very easy and accessible. For excursions around the island, it's also conveniently located right on Centerline Rd., and very close to the N. Shore Rd., so you can get anywhere you need to go easily. The walk up to the villa is a bit steep (but only for a short distance), so if mobility is an issue, this may pose a challenge. The villa is bright, clean, and very comfortable, with just about all the amenitites you need for a visit to the island. As at least one other reviewer noted, on a busy night, you can hear some of the action "downtown," so peak seasons (presumably, like during Carnival?), it may be an issue. We were so well provisioned, that we never needed to engage property management (though I felt like stopping in just to say "hi!"). The only thing that would prevent us from staying here again is that we will take our kids with us on our next visit, so we'd need another BR."
