About the property

Coral Bay Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Sea Rock rests peacefully over the BIG BLUE Caribbean sea. Relax in the elegance and enjoy the sounds of the sea and the salt misted air from this new luxury villa.

Gaze into the mesmerizing blue and watch the coming and going of mariners from all parts of the globe glide through the turquoise waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Enjoy sailboat races from the comfort of your hammock or get into the action with beach and anchorage access. Take a charter out of Coral Bay and explore the view- the USVI outer islands or the British Virgin Isles that lay at your feet. This custom home offers a true Caribbean experience, located in a quiet area in the slower paced Coral Bay area and only 10 minute drive to the Virgin Island National Park beaches.

Come home to the awe inspiring setting sun that melts into velvety evenings under a blanket of stars while you soak in the hot tub or enjoy cocktail hour on the Travertine marble veranda. The spacious Great room is perfect for entertaining the new friends you met on the beach or the family you brought along, with enough decks, patios and verandas crafted in West Indian Stone to wander and dream in, and ample cozy intimate spaces on overstuffed lounges for quiet moments. The lush tropical gardens & Koi pond with gentle water fall, offer a relaxing green refrain by the sea. With a very private design you may feel you entered an oasis.

The gourmet equipped kitchen brings out your inner chef, whip up an island inspired dish from the local gardens and markets or grab a snack from the pantry chest freezer. Finish your day as you slip away to the 4 Post King bedrooms furnished in traditional carved mahogany & Indonesian teak for exotic dreams, scents of spice and the sound of the sea at your feet.

GENERATOR As a result of our recent encounters with two hurricanes and the history of reliable electrical power on St John, we have installed a 25KW full service generator that automatically runs when the local power supply is challenged. To enjoy your vacation you will need uninterrupted power so you can have such basics as refrigeration, air conditioning, lighting, spas, entertainment and so much more. St John has not lost any of its beauty, the locals have rebounded with all the necessary services, but when it comes to electrical power you can never be too prepared.

As you search for your perfect island villa, do not leave electrical power to chance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"SeaRock provided the ideal setting for a wonderful vacation. We could not have

asked for more comfortable accommodations, tastefully appointed with an artist

sensibilities, while convenient to the islands beaches and attractions. It afforded

a serene base of operations-and you certainly can't beat the view! We had a

perfect week in paradise!"

5th time in Saint John but 1st time staying in Coral Bay:)

  • 4 of 5

With a last minute decision to take a trip to Saint John, our usual rental in Cruz Bay was already rented out for the week. As we began to explore for a new place to call home, we can come across Sea Rock. While we were a little hesitant, because it was located in Coral Bay, the beauty of the house and the views from the deck just kept calling us back. Dan and Jared were wonderful to work with and very prompt in responding to any questions we might have had! As we arrived and entered into the villa, the villa was gorgeous, extremely clean and the views were just wonderful.

Our only disappointment in the SeaRock was that we felt the description of the bedrooms and where the bathrooms were, was not clearly noted in the description of the house. We were traveling with my father in law and the lower level bedrooms were not connected to the main floor. Therefore you had to go down two levels of steps, outside, to reach the bedrooms and the steps were not fully covered by a roof. We had several spurts of rain during our stay and when needing to go quick grab something from the bedrooms, it was tricky because the floors were slippery and therefore you had to take your time going up and down and you got wet. While the rain felt wonderful, I was more nervous with slipping and falling. Another item is only one of the bathrooms is connected to the two bedrooms, so if you are not traveling with family or someone you are comfortable sharing a bathroom with, it could be difficult in the middle of the night to go outside and run up to the other bathroom in the main house. While these obstacles did not affect our love for SeaRock or the area of Coral Bay ...we were surprised at the lay out of the villa.

One last note....while our introduction letter, which we received approx. a week before check in, noted that ATT customers may have difficulty receiving service at the villa, I wish this would have been disclosed in the villas description as well. I had no service at the villa to receive calls from my kids and when traveling this is very important to both myself and my kids. It seemed like as soon as we turned the corner from the villa service was available. I again completely understand we are on an island, however we really never had an issue before. Just something to keep in mind if you need to stay connected while at the villa. Next time I will simply ask more questions:) Thank you SeaRock for an amazing time in Coral Bay!:)

Dan (owner) and Jared (manager) were great to work with and very hospitable. The villa was clean, up to date, spacious and just a short ride to many restaurants. the outdoor showers were a treat.

Sea Rock rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Rock is pretty close to perfect. The house is beautiful and has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and the patio is great for a sundowner before grilling. The views are fantastic and the location is ideal with short distances to all the beaches and best snorkel spots. The local stores have most things and Cruz Bay is just 30 min away. The teenagers loved the wifi. When can we come back?

The most beautiful and romantic place

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at Sea Rock and it keeps getting better each time. There isn't a better view on the island and you enjoy seclusion while still being close to restaurants and stores. We went out to each a couple of nights but really enjoyed grilling on the patio and relaxing at the house for several nights as well. The Jacuzzi was perfect once the sun went down if you wanted to spend time star gazing and listening to the sounds of water hitting the shore. I always tell people that St. John is my favorite place to go and Sea Rock is a big reason why. Once you stay here, you won't want to go anywhere else. My wife and I just spent our 10 year anniversary there, and I expect there will be many more spent at Sea Rock in the future. I highly recommend you stay. I promise you will be pleased!

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sea Rock for the past two years and will hope to come again and again. First of all the view is wonderful and the house is situated to take advantage of it from every room. The house is beautifully done with wood and stone and two terrific outdoor showers. A great kitchen and outdoor seating. The hot tub is an excellent place to have a cocktail and stargaze from. The location in Coral Bay is extremely convenient to some great restaurants and the drive up to the house is easy by St John standards. An extremely well done house that I would highly recommend.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Well, to be truthful I've been hesitant to write a review of Sea Rock for fear that so many would discover this perfect oasis that it wouldn't be available for our annual stays, however I realize that that is awfully selfish of me. So, Sea Rock...My daughter and I have been spending a week at the villa for the last 6 or 7 years because frankly - it is HEAVEN - or as close as you can get to it on this planet. The open airy feel of the house makes it breathtaking from every vantage point, the ocean views are the most spectacular I've seen in all my many travels. At night the stars are endless and watching them from the hot tub with a piña colada in hand AWE INSPIRING - actually just writing this makes my heart ache for how much I long to be there, all the time. The marble decks are gorgeous and expansive, the kitchen beautifully appointed, the bathrooms and outdoor showers are sensational and the house is always spotless for our arrival. I can't imagine visiting this most pristine, tranquil island without staying at Sea Rock - it is the trip, the home away from home, that we yearn for all year long.
