  • Wonderful Cottage and Location!

    "My husband and I just returned from our first stay in St. John and Palm Cottage was perfect for us! The cottage is exactly as described and the pictures of the view simply don't do it justice! Being July, I was prepared for it to be hot and the breezes to not be at their strongest. However, the house is perfectly situated and the breeze was AMAZING! It flowed through the windows and was so refreshing. The outdoor shower was an unexpected highlight. It is private and surrounded by a few palm trees, yet open enough to enjoy the moon and the stars. Palm Cottage is in a great location if you are wanting to really explore the island. You still get an amazing view, yet it is literally only a couple of minutes to the main road (I'd imagine getting to some of the other rentals we saw on the mountain would take quite a while off the main road to get to) and less than ten to local restaurants and bars in Coral Bay. We also loved the location because it was an easy drive to the east end, north beaches, and the south beaches. We love exploring and are so glad we chose to stay in Coral Bay AND that Palm Cottage was easy to get to. I also wanted to note that communication with Barry was great even with our very last minute trip! Tom, the property manager, was wonderful and was there waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us great recommendations on places to explore during our short stay and even though we didn't have any problems during our stay, we knew he would be available to us should we need anything. We had a wonderful stay! (We peeped into Palm Studio and also has everything you'd need with a great view. If you have teenagers, or another couple traveling with you, a great option would be to rent both the cottage and studio and still have your privacy AND be able to share time together.)"

  • Wishing we were still there...

    "I just want to thank Nancy for sharing her piece of paradise with us. The home and reviews capture everything perfectly EXCEPT for the views... there is nothing quite like the everychanging beautiful scenery of the bays below from sun up to sundown. We are adventurers and usually take the path less traveled and yes the driveway was a bit daunting, but it is true that it becomes part of the adventure and easily navigated after the 2nd time. The owners were on site for a couple days but respected our privacy and in fact assisted with making our stay even more enjoyable. Nancy - the snorkeling will be forever in my memories. Initially we were unprepared for the open concept of the house and no key to lock up when we went away, but the measures you need at home were truly not necessary on this piece of paradise. Cannot wait to come back and next time our son will be joining us :)"

  • Peaceful St. John Retreat

    "The St. John by the Bay cottage offers a great place to stay and explore St. John. There are great snorkeling sites all over the island, including the two private bays for the house and all are accessible from this cottage retreat, including Salt Pond Bay, Maho Bay and Waterlemon Bay just to name a few. The owner was great with following up and with suggestions on nearby sites and restaurants. Great extras were provided with the cottage, including a cooler, beach towels, a grill and extensive outdoor furniture. The view from the back porch is spectacular. Several good restaurants are close by, including Tourist Trap, Cafe Concordia, Miss Lucy's and Skinny Legs. We would definitely recommend this rental to our friends and relatives as a great place to stay in St. John."

  • exceptional hospitality, cottage and location

    "My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay here for 4 nights recently. Our trip was last minute and just by chance the owner, Catherine, had a cancellation. We couldn't recommend staying here highly enough. The cottage itself is beautiful, with wonderful privacy and incredible vistas. It is really appointed thoughtfully; the outside shower is great; you can shower under the stars or while overlooking the Caribbean. More importantly, Catherine does a few things that make a huge difference, especially upon arrival. She met us at the ferry, took us to get our rental car, to the supermarket and then led us to her property. The first night there she delivers dinner to you, while having stacked a bottle of win in the refrigerator and supplying a pound of coffee, milk, orange juice and granola. After traveling to get to St. John, these gestures, for us, really made a huge difference. We could relax the first night, not having to run out for food and were set for the next morning as well. The cottage itself is a wonderful place to be and Catherine's hospitality is completely unobtrusive and helpful. I should also note that there were very few bugs at night in this location, possibly due to the constant breeze and the location of the cottage itself.We felt lucky to get to stay there and hope to return. We would recommend it highly."
