The villa was even better than the pictures. It was clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and had everything you need including wonderful beach chairs, nice beach towels and a cooler. The absolute best part was the incredible, surreal view from the wrap around deck! We also loved the pool especially each afternoon after a few hours at a new and fabulous beach! The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. We would recommend this villa to anybody - in a heartbeat!

Home Away From Home BUT In A Paradise Setting!

  • 5 of 5

Rhumb Runner is definitely home away from home BUT in a Paradise setting. We celebrated 40 years of wedding bliss - and it was! The house does not lack in amenities. The view of Coral Bay was spectacular and the morning sunrise was a nice way to ease into the day. Michael & Chris were very helpful and made our planning for this getaway stress free. The snorkeling was excellent - Maho Bay became our favorite - early morning with a picnic breakfast - not a better way to start the day. Then a dip in the pool back at the house to plan the rest of our day was refreshing. And a stop by the Nat'l Park Office in Cruz Bay to get all the details is a must. We would definitely recommend Rhumb Runner and hope to go back some day.

P.S. But the cherry on the top was walking into the house the evening of Thanksgiving to find two plates of Thanksgiving Dinner and pumpkin pie with a nice bottle of wine waiting for us... talk about taking care of your guests above & beyond!!

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to Rhumb Runners. How do you describe paradise? When we arrive I take a deep breath and remind myself how lucky we are to have found this beautiful, perfect, location and house to stay in. Coral Bay overall is a wonderful spot, close to less crowded beaches, convenient food store and great selection of restaurants. The house was lovely the first time we saw it many years ago, but Mike and Cris continue to put in improvements over the years, new kitchen, flat screen TV, original artwork, new chairs, the list goes on. They added some great beach chairs, easy to sling on your back and hike with. We used the grill on the deck and the kitchen to cook some great meals. Of course the views are priceless. I saw another review that mentioned a steep drive up. I've been to several other houses, and this is one of the easiest to get to with this kind of view. My sister was staying in another house about the same height but the view was more hills, less water. In addition to the beautiful views this is a very private location. Loved going to the beaches early, the snorkeling was great, turtles, rays, all kinds of fish, but is was wonderful to relax at the house in the afternoon. Our 23 year old son loved it as well, we were a little worried he would get bored with his parents but we all agreed it was a fabulous trip. Can't wait to go back, I wouldn't dream of staying in another house!!!

Trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our 16 yr. old son, and the 3 of us enjoyed the most lovely week of our lives together at Rhumb Runners. This villa has the best view if Coral Bay one could hope for; sitting on the deck watching the boats in the harbor and looking our towards Tortola was sublime. It is high on a hill with breezes, no bugs, and a huge kitchen for cooking in after a long day of hitting the beach. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all in paradise.

Great Place, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. We stayed for first two weeks of February and found the description of the house to be very accurate. Mike and Chris have gone to great lengths to make this a beautiful place. The art work and decor are extremely tasteful. The owners take care to maintain the cottage and it was very clean. The layout of the home is simple but functional and our party of four were very comfortable in this space.

Mike met us at the base of the road and lead us up the hill. He spent about 20 minutes orienting us to the home and island living. The introduction was appreciated and helpful. Some of the earlier reviews make reference to the steepness of the road. One gets used to this quite quickly and its not an issue, but a four wheel drive is very much worth having.

We primarily snorkeled and the location is great for this activity. On any given day you can get to calm water quite easily by use of opposite sides of the island.

Our whole family gives "Rhumb Runners" high marks!

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. This was our first trip to St John and we wanted to be away from the "big city " in Cruz Bay. The Coral Bay location of this house was perfect for us with easy access to north, south, and east side beaches. There is a great grocery store at the bottom of the driveway that could not be more convenient (and it was very well stocked). The house itself was perfect for my husband and me. It is very private and secluded and the pool was a great break from the ocean in the afternoon. The owners were great to work with in the planning process and were very responsive to all of our questions. We would definitely rent here again!
