Amazing unobstructed views, sounds of the waves below, secluded yet near it all!
We are from Southern California and have lived in a little town in the desert - Pioneertown - for most of our lives. We graduated from high school in Yucca Valley, attended college and then returned to our home town to raise our family and start a business. After our children grew up we retired and started traveling. Sailing became a favorite pastime and we have sailed to almost every island in the Caribbean and Bahamas. We came to St. John for the first time on a sailing trip in 2005. We fell in love with the island and returned many times, both on land and on a sailboat. We finally decided to purchase a home on our favorite Caribbean island - St. John - in 2017.
Pam purchased this House in 2017
Why Pam chose Estate Zootenvaal
Livin' Life Smilin' has the most spectacular views of anywhere in the Coral Bay area. The house overlooks the waters of the St. John National Park. The feeling of privacy is unsurpassed, yet within 1/2 mile there are restaurants, grocery stores and entertainment. The house is also close to hiking trails, beaches, and snorkeling and only a 30 minute drive to Cruz Bay. The breezes are wonderful - you rarely need to turn on the A/C!
What makes this House unique
Privacy and seclusion yet close to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, beaches, hiking, snorkeling and a short drive to Cruz Bay. But most of all - the spectacular view from every room in the house and over 900 feet of outside deck so you can sit anywhere and enjoy the view!

The property was exactly as stated in the verb listing. Communication with listing agency was excellent. A wonderful visit.
Great family getaway
We had a wonderful stay at “Livin Life Smilin” and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet family-friendly getaway with access to all you need for a great vacation: close access to serene beaches, coziness of Coral Bay, and the off shore breezes from the east side of St John. The villa’s proximity to the national park made for quick access to public beaches not frequented by visitors from St Thomas and Cruz Bay, which allowed us on several occasion to have entire picturesque beaches all to ourselves.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Livin' Life Smilin' and we hope to welcome you back soon! We also enjoy the less frequented beaches of the East End. We have had many days where we were the only people on the beaches too!

Nice family stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Estate Zootenvaal. Our family of 4 had plenty of room to spread out and not feel cramped. One of my favorite things was the outdoor showers! Everything was as described and conveniently close to Coral Bay for restaurants and grocery. Great communication throughout the process with both the owner and property manager. The drive way was a bit rough but manageable with 4-wheel drive. We would stay there again for sure!
Debbie and family,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home Livin' Life Smilin' and we hope to welcome you back soon! We are working on the driveway but it is why we recommend 4WD, not only because of our driveway, but many roads on the island are better navigated with 4WD. It just adds to the island adventure! Thank you again for staying at our home.
