  • 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."

  • Just What We Were Looking For

    "We stayed at New Moon for one week in June. (our first trip without the kids in a while) The cottage was everything we wanted for a getaway. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. I mean, c'mon, they even had a french press for coffee snobs like me. While it isn't really secluded, the vegetation and landscape make it feel like it is. On our arrival, the place was spotless. We rented one of the Jeeps that they had, and Catherine made sure someone was there to pick us up at the ferry dock. He took us to the grocery store in Cruz Bay and then on to the cottage. Catherine was always available to answer any questions we had and to make sure that we got back to the ferry on time on our departure day. We really appreciated how she made us feel at home. I'm an island guy. In fact, someday soon I hope to be one of the locals that you meet in Skinny Legs. When we do meet, feel free to ask me for recommendations on things to do and places to eat. I'll talk your ear off. St John is one of my favorite places. While we were there my wife spent every day in the water with me, despite Jaws having scarred her for life where the ocean is concerned. We saw something new below the surface every day. I love the pace and natural beauty of the island. It was great to come back to the cottage at the end of the day and watch the twilight descend on the valley and the bay. You just can't beat falling asleep with the sea breezes rustling the curtains. Coral Bay is on the quiet side of a quiet island. Nothing is really all that far away from you though. The beaches on the east end and southern side are really close and on some days you'll have them virtually all to yourself. As far as food goes, Miss Lucy's, Oasis, and Skinny Legs all offer good food at reasonable prices and a great atmosphere. Pickles Deli has a good breakfast. Overall, it's great place to make your own adventure."

  • A great private getaway

    "Our family really enjoyed staying in this private house at the end, end, end of the road! Everything was clean and maintained well. I've stayed in places on St. John that had a more commanding view because they were higher up the mountain, but this spot is tranquil and still offered a picturesque place to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning on the second-floor deck. That deck is also a nice place to do some stargazing while listening to frogs and other night creatures. There are ruins right in your backyard, if you're willing to climb a bit, but they are totally worth the effort. This house provided plenty of room for a family of four -- we had the parents upstairs, one kid on the futon in the den and another on the pull-out couch. Having two bathrooms was nice, although note there's only one really useful shower. The outdoor shower provides very little privacy; more appropriate for a romantic getaway than a family vacation! :) The outdoor shower is very handy for just rinsing off after a day of hiking or at the beach if you were to do so while still in a swimsuit. Very nice kitchen amenities and an outdoor grill helped for some less-expensive meals cooked at home for a couple of nights. Despite very warm and humid weather, we never felt like we needed air conditioning thanks to the ceiling fans and comfortable breezes coming in the open doors and windows. Be prepared for visiting donkeys and, of course, the ever-present roosters make for some early mornings on the island. But then, you might as well get going early anyway since there is so much to do on St. John. The location was nice and secluded without being too far away from Coral Bay so you have relatively easy access to "town." Once you're stocked up on supplies, the owners provide plenty of coolers, beach towels and other things to help you enjoy your day at the beach or out hiking. While it's nice to be disconnected, we also appreciated the WiFi that was provided so we could upload and back up the many photos we were taking. All-in-all, a great place to call home for awhile. If we returned as a family again, this would be a place we would check on for availability."

  • Moonsong was a dream!

    "This lovely villa met and exceeded all of our expectations for our stay on St. John. Lynn, the villa's owner, and Rachelle and C.J. at Destination St. John, the management company, were all very helpful. As soon as we checked in to the house, we were in love. The home has been updated and is the loveliest shade of breezy blue. The location provides convenience and privacy. The home was spotless and well-stocked; we cooked often and found everything we needed, no problem. Hot water was abundant and water pressure was great. I even did a few loads of vacation laundry and was happy to find brand-new appliances and a fully-stocked laundry room. And the view- the view! Amazing for sunrises, sunsets, and pretty much any time in between. We loved Moonsong so much, we've reserved a week for 2015."
