There’s noplace like Kiddel Bay!
We have been to St. John a dozen times and this is our favorite spot. Close to Coral Bay, Kiddel Bay cottage is a perfect place for those who want some privacy but quick access to your own beach. The cottage is freshly updated, clean, comfortable and fully outfitted with everything you need. The beach, while rocky (don’t forget your watershoes), has some of the best water and snorkeling on St. John. There are great hikes right outside your door, and Salt Pond Bay are an easy walk from the cottage. But the absolutely best part of this cottage is sitting on one of the decks and enjoying the view. We’ve been to homes in some of St. John’s most luxurious neighborhoods and, the truth is, the view at Kiddel Bay cottage is far superior. The nighttime sky is absolutely unforgettable, as is waking up in the night and seeing a lighted cruise ship make its way past your own little bay. True, you do have to drive a little to get to sandy beaches and restaurants, but for us, that’s all part of the St. John adventure. Highly recommended!
Thank you Jody for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage ~It is truly a unique experience on island, and a hidden gem! We are thrilled you appreciated all that cottage and location has to offer, and we hope to welcome you back again soon! - Your Island Hosts
Amazing charming and wonderful
The cottage is lovely. The walk to the beach is perfect and easy. Kelsey and Rosanna were extremely helpful even before we got there then helped us with a crisis at the airport and saved our vacation.
The bay is beautiful and had almost no visitors other than us. It was the most relaxing vacation ever.
I recommend renting a jeep on st John. Not at the airport. Take a taxi and ferry to st John. Then get your car. Easy that way.
The food on the island was fantastic. Every place we ate was delicious.
But we cooked at the house and used the grill also. It was perfect for amenities.
Hope I get to go again ❤️
Thank you Stephanie for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Kiddel Bay Cottage! It was our pleasure having you stay with us! We hope to see you on island again soon! -Your Island Hosts
Nothing short of a miracle
The ongoing recovery of the island, its people and the sea was nothing short of a miracle. My regular second home on island was destroyed by the hurricanes (concordia). I tentatively reached out to friends and property managers Rosanne and Wayne one year later. With trepidation I booked kiddel bay house for first two weeks I could December. Splendid house tucked away in supreme quiet and beauty with easy walking beach access. And shock of all shocks the coral has been regenerating, the reef fish multiplying. I could barely believe my eyes.
Then as I reconnected to those on island I have known and loved, I heard for the first time in detail about the trauma they experienced and are still healing from. Without my ever encouraging hosts and friends I don’t know that I would have returned to what I thought would be devestating loss and sadness. Yes, there was loss and sadness but more importantly the island’s ongoing return to health filled me with joy.
Thank you Kathy for your kind words! We truly appreciate you choosing to stay with us despite the devastation. We have come a long way in the past year and we are so glad you were able to see the growth and love our community continues to show. Thank you again for letting us be your island hosts! We hope to see you again soon! Happy holidays from all of our Antares Crew!
Cute cottage with excellent snorkeling within walking distance at Kiddel Bay. This beach looked like it could be a model for a salt water aquarium with its huge rocks, coral, and grass. We saw sea turtles, an octopus, and so many different fish. At night we enjoyed sitting out on the deck to watch amazing sunsets then later gaze at the star filled sky. We also saw three deer each day on the road in front of the cottage. There are great restaurants nearby in Coral Bay but we did use the well equipped kitchen to cook breakfast and dinner one night. The beds were comfy and wifi nice since phone coverage was hit or miss.
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Kiddel Bay Cottage and the amazing snorkeling nearby! Kiddel Bay is one of our favorite snorkel spots and we love sharing that experience with guests! We hope to see you on island again soon! -Your Island Hosts
