Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at the Coconut Hill Cottage. The home's owner, Susan, was very helpful and responsive to get our vacation organized. Views are stunning and the cottage has all amenities you might need. There are lots of beautiful beaches to choose from for sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming etc. We enjoyed taking a nice refreshing dip into the pool in the morning or after coming back from the beach.

Perfect place to get away and having a relaxed time!

Beautiful mountain side views of coral bay!

  • 5 of 5

8 days in Coral Bay were beautiful! The house had everything that you needed. It was so nice to meet the owner Bob and he was quick to fix anything that went wrong. The Lush Greenery made it so private. The only sound you could hear where the chirping of birds and the rustling of Palm leaves. We loved the open front porch that connected to the rest of the house. Hopefully we make it back to St John soon and get to stay in this house again. Our favorite thing about this house is where it was located. Coral Bay was our favorite part of the island. The small-town feel and beautiful surroundings made it a very special place.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at Coconut Hill Cottage--it was perfect for our family; everything is exactly as presented! The view is superb; the screened-in porch is so very pleasant for enjoying the view and nice breeze. We appreciated so much having beach chairs, cooler, towels to use. It was a fabulous vacation and we hope to return someday!

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.
