perfection in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The home's owner, Susan, went out of her way to make sure our vacation went off without a hitch. She quickly arranged our reservation, made valuable suggestions regarding Jeep rental & travel to & fro the islands, gave us clear directions to get us to the cottage, & did all of this with a genuine warmth & affability that made us feel like welcomed family. The cottage was ready & waiting, exceptionally charming, amazingly clean & picturesque beyond words. The photos on the Home Away site are stunningly accurate, but pale in comparison to the real thing. Nestled high atop Bordeaux Mountain, the stone & timber cottage is surrounded by lush, tropical plants that open to a breathtaking view of Coral Bay, that may be taken in while splashing in the pool or lounging in the screened patio. The modern kitchen & each room is well appointed, with quaint decorating touches. Everything that you could hope for is there, including a welcome book that details local restaurants, attractions & various points of interest. For us, the location was perfect, quiet & private, yet only a short drive to snorkeling, trails, shopping, & even downtown Cruz Bay. We've been traveling the Caribbean for 29+ years, & this is the first time we've rented a home. Thanks to Susan, we were thrilled with our choice. We are already waxing reminiscent as we look at our photos, & are looking forward to returning on our next visit to our beloved STJ.

Look no further...this is the place!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously the most amazing views! The pics do not do the view justice. We stayed for 9 days at Bob and Susan's place and can't say enough of how perfect it was. We cooked every night with the exception of 1 when we went to Cruz Bay. I am sure there are some amazing restaurants but we loved this place so much we decided to enjoy the evenings on the screened porch with dinner instead.

There are three markets to choose from close by...Calabash seemed to have the freshest produce and fish for grilling but was a little bit further down the road. Worth it if you want fresher produce. Buy ice before you arrive if you want cold drinks. There are only two ice cube trays so if you have a larger group, you may need more ice.

We saw a lot of reviews about how cool the pool is, but we are from Michigan so it felt refreshing to us and not at all cold.

This place has everything you need! It is VERY private also which was wonderful :) Having a hose was a bonus to rinse of snorkel gear and beach stuff. Also, a small vacuum to vacuum out the sand in the jeep rental (the car rental place will charge you an absorbent amount if you have sand in the jeep when you return it).

We are already planning our second trip and will definitely be booking here next year!

Seriously...stop looking, you will not be disappointed!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Coconut Hill Cottage for our honeymoon. The place was very well kept and had everything that we needed. The views from the porch overlooking Coral Bay are fantastic. The place is very private and quiet and was perfect to come back to after a day of snorkeling or a dinner out.

Beautiful views- worth the climb up the mountain

  • 5 of 5

A great property- updated, freshly painted, well apportioned. A 4 wheel drive is a must (without it you may not have enough traction to climb the hills especially if it's raining), but the views are stunning. Both bedrooms with air conditioned are located downstairs, accessed via an outdoor staircase- no problems at all using the outside staircase, still very private. The pool is lovely (we didn't find it cold as mentioned by other reviews- nice temp and refreshing). Great gas grill- cooked several dinners on it, poured a glass of nice wine, and watched the sun tuck behind the mountains- gorgeous and breathtaking.

Parking is tight if someone else is staying at the lower cottage. Although completely private spaces, you do share parking. Once you get used to it, it isn't a problem.

We love the Coral Bay side of the island and keep returning to it time and time again. Our time at Coconut Hill was wonderful, if not too short. Can't wait to get back.

Beautiful view. Soft breezes.

  • 5 of 5

This house is set a considerable way up Bordeaux Mt. and is not for the faint at heart. We tried to head up the hill early. Watching the light change in the bay below was worth missing out on Cruz Bay craziness. We missed music and would bring a small iPod speaker next time.

Beach towels and chairs terrific help. We hit every beach. The pool was great in the morning sun. Something about floating with that view was very serene.

Amenities good. Solar lights near pool would have be helpful. Sharper knives and some storage containers with lids too.

Beds , towels, dryer, porch all were absolutely perfect. Slept like a baby with wind blowing in the window. Exterior stairs were no big deal! We were used to it in the first day.

Thank you Susan and

Bob. I highly recommend this beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and especially your suggestions to make the house even better for future guests... we have taken care of everything including a new Bluetooth speaker. The only thing we are hesitant to do is put solar lights by the pool because they cannot be shut off will attract insects. Thanks again....we are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
