  • Can't wait to return!!!

    "OMG!!!! I can't say enough good things about my stay at Coral Bay Cottage. Melody was so nice and personal from the moment I first contacted her about the cottage; and she was always quick to respond and answer all of my questions. The cottage was exactly as advertised... and more!!! Perfectly maintained, simply adorable, clean, clean, clean! Everything you need, well, if you're ok without air conditioning. The cottage has wall to wall windows on all 4 sides with a ceiling fan and 2 additional fans, so it was very comfortable at night! The setting is absolutely beautiful and remote - the sounds of nature sing you to sleep at night! Definitely a place to get away and unwind! Melody was off the island during my visit, but left me in good hands - Tom was truly delightful - a Caribbean Santa Clause - such a kind gentle soul with a great big smile and a love for the island he loves to share. My friends were all staying on the other side of the island, but it was well worth the drive every day to meet them on the other side and return "home" each night. I hope the cottage is available for my next visit to St John - would love to stay here again!!! one last note - fresh water is precious on the island - they depend on rain water. So, you need to be considerate when showering, brushing teeth, etc. It really is no trouble at all to lather up with the water off and then turn it on to rinse... just something to consider if you like marathon showers. Happy Travels! I hope you love it as much as I did!!! :)"

  • Incredible Views and Hospitality!

    "We rented both of Lee's units over the holidays and we cannot say enough good things about her or the property. Everything was clean, kitchen stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals if you want. She even provided coolers and beach chairs! We really loved the large screened in porches. Note: You will definitely need a car as she lives on a large hill over looking Cruz Bay. She is a wonderful lady and we loved hearing her play the piano when we were coming and going. We have already planned our next trip and we definitely will be staying with her again. Don't pass her up!"

  • A Wonderful Stay!!!

    "My sister and I stayed in SeaSwan back in May for a girls getaway. The place was beautiful, and convenient to Cruz Bay, it had everything you need for a day at the beach!! Paul was so kind to help my friends that traveled with us find their Villa and make sure they did not get lost, you cant find that kind of hospitality any where else!! The views from the apartment are some of the best on the island, and great for relaxing and enjoying the sunsets. I cant say enough great things about this place,and when I plan to make a trip back to St. John, I will for sure stay at SeaSwan!!!"

  • Already Budgeting for Next Year

    "I really hate to start our with a complaint, but where was music from Cases by the Sea? Other than not getting some good Reggae music from the locals, everything was perfect. Clark and Cathy were on vacation during our stay and Jenae and Willis took care of us during our stay. It's going to be hard for Clark and Cathy to beat out their hospitality next year. They checked on us several time to make sure our stay was perfect, which meant a lot. The driveway there, I guess there are times you may need a 4WD but I stopped using it after my 2nd trip up. Definitely want to rent a Jeep but it's really not too bad. Many properties on St John with triple the price tag have much scarier driveways than this road. It's just what comes with vacationing on The Rock. The house temperature was very cool, I got a little chilly is the mornings. No mosquitoes inside and really none outside on the deck. The last 2 days there was a mosquito outbreak on the island (read on Tripadvisor about after heavy rains) due to the rains a week earlier and it never got to bad to finish off the night on the deck. We did use bug spray but much more so on the beaches during our last couple days. The property had everything we needed. Great beach towels, chairs, coolers, grill, ect. (we actually ate out most meals due to the cost of groceries and since it was only 2 of us, it made sense financially) We brought spices and everything but Coral Bay has some really good and decently priced food. Just don't run up a bar tab and you'll be fine. We got several lunches from Pickles deli to take to the beach and had breakfast there a couple times as well. Island Oasis is about as cheap of a place as you will find for a dinner and huge portions that are equally as delicious. You must have the Ponzu Tuna from Aqua Bistro, served only on Friday nights so budget that in your plans and be sure to make a fairly early reservation so they don't run out. Ship Wreck Landing is also a great spot for lunch or dinner and it's a scenic 3 minutes from you. Also, Lucy's is a great place to eat directly on the water. The places mentioned are minutes from the bottom of your almost private mountain. Rent this house if you want to get away from it all but still be in the middle of all the great beaches and eateries. Granted, you will want to make a couple happy hours in Cruz Bay but it's only a 25 minute commute that has breathtaking views a long the way. Just don't book the dates we want before us!"
