Non-smoking Villa 2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2 or four)
Anchorage Aweigh is our exquisite 2 bedroom villa overlooking Coral Bay harbor. This couples-only villa boasts a centrally located pool and large pool deck with picturesque views of Coral Bay, St John. Anchorage Aweigh villa is comprised of a main house with two master suites. If only one bedroom is desired, the upper bedroom will be available. If a second bedroom is desired, we will open up the lower bedroom. Both bedrooms are located on separate floors and allow maximum privacy. The maximum number of guests at any given time is four. It is a tranquil and serene setting with spectacular views of Coral Bay harbor, mountains and the historical 250+year-old Moravian Church.
The villa has travertine marble floors, cable railing, air-conditioned bedrooms, outdoor stone showers, full kitchen, indoor/outdoor living and dining areas, a gas grill, laundry facility and a pool that is all tiled. All of the appliances are new and include a full-sized stainless steel refrigerator, gas range, microwave and dishwasher.
Please note our calendar is accurate and up to date.
The villa offers two equal king-sized bedrooms with gorgeous brand new furniture. The mattresses are Serta memory foam with cooling gel. The upper bedroom is on the main level. It opens out to a screened-in covered porch. The bedroom is air conditioned. The bathroom has a granite vanity. Attached to the bathroom is an outdoor stone shower under an open air roof. The second king bedroom is located on the lower pool level, facing the harbor. It has the very same amenities as the upper bedroom. It has a covered porch facing the harbor, which is not screened-in
The kitchen has blue pearl granite counters with an exquisite glass tile backsplash. It is filled with all of the amenities you will need to prepare many gourmet meals. There is an indoor dining table to enjoy should you decide to eat inside.
The living room has two love seats overlooking both the church and harbor. There is a 12' sliding glass door facing the harbor for you to enjoy the panoramic views. There is a flat-screened television with DVD/DISH in here as well.
The main house has an expansive wrap-around porch. We have an oversized sectional outdoor couch to relax and enjoy the view. There is also a dining table to enjoy meals alfresco. Sit and enjoy a cool drink on the breezy, covered porch while watching the sailboats bobbing on the harbor.
From the living room, the pool and lower bedroom are accessed through an indoor set of stairs.
Sunday mornings are a special time here. You’ll hear the church bells ring @ 9:30 am. The traditions of this historic, over 250 year old, Moravian church can be felt through the choral singing that drifts up the hillside. It’s an extraordinary experience you’ll not soon forget.
Coral Bay is located on the quiet, mellow side of St. John. A 2-minute drive down the hill will bring you to a variety of shopping, restaurant and entertainment options. Beaches and the National Park hiking trails can all be found a short distance away.
You'll definitely want a rental car so you can take advantage of some of the most pristine views of the lush, tropical hillsides and aqua blue seas. The 'busy' town of Cruz Bay is a 20 minute drive away.
This house has been an ongoing dream of ours and we have taken great pride in the construction of it. You can see our hard work on our blog that can be found on Google.
We have completed a gorgeous 10 x 20 mosaic tiled swimming pool overlooking the harbor, with a 600 sq. ft. pool deck and adjacent tropical garden. Part of it is shaded by a huge royal palm tree and part is under cover of a shaded porch. The pool is a saline pool - meaning there is very little chemical use. Your hair, skin and clothing will not be affected as they might with a chlorinated system.
Adjacent to the main house, yet completely separate, is our cottage. It is a one-bedroom unit that is our living quarters while we are in St. John part-time. The main house and cottage were designed with privacy in mind. As you can see in the photographs, both houses face in different directions. The two houses share the pool and pool deck. Keeping privacy in mind, we do not use the pool when guests are present.
As you can see from our reviews, Anchorage Aweigh has become a popular vacation destination. We hope that you will find our villa, and the island of St. John itself, a wonderful place for your holiday.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful villa, stunning view!
We just returned home from a fabulous week on St. John, and must express our gratitude to Scott and Patricia for being such welcoming hosts to their most charming villa, Anchorage Aweigh. It was very comfortable and well-equipped...We had everything we could possibly want or need for our perfect vacation. In addition, the location is wonderfully central and provides easy access to both the North Shore beaches as well as the East End beaches. After a long day of hiking and snorkeling, the pool provided a wonderful spot to relax and rejuvenate while admiring a great view of the harbor. (It must be stated, too, that we really appreciated having a fully paved road all the way to the house!) Simply put, we had a grand time!
It's very heartening to see St. John bouncing back so well after last fall's devastating hurricane season...We are so glad we were able to be there and see it for ourselves. May the great progress continue! We look most forward to our next visit to the island and this delightful villa.
Thank you so very much, Scott and Patricia!
Fantastic views, clean and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay in April 2018. The villa is well laid out with impressive views of Coral Bay harbor. The owners were very responsive to all communications. We would not hesitate to rent again on a future visit.
Anchorage Aweigh - Perfect hosts, perfect accommodations
We spent a lovely week at Anchorage Aweigh in April 2018. Owners Scott and Patricia Rose could not have been better hosts or more accommodating. We were originally scheduled to visit in September 2017 - the week of Hurricane Irma - and our hosts, without hesitation, graciously re-booked us in April 2018. Communication has been effortless, as they promptly responded to our questions and concerns before and after we arrived.
Scott and Patricia met us in Cruz Bay, and we followed them in our rental car across-island to their property in Coral Bay. Their 2 BR rental home is perfectly located, nestled in a shady area on a hill overlooking the bay. Our hosts live in a separate home behind the rental property, making them close at hand if you need anything, yet always giving us our privacy.
Inside Anchorage Aweigh, the travertine tile floors, stainless steel appliances, comfortable furniture, and attractive decor made us feel right at home. Power has been fully restored to the area. TV, cell phone coverage and internet at Anchorage Aweigh allow you to stay in touch back home if necessary.
There are two bedrooms, each with king size bed (ultra-comfortable!) and en suite bath. The kitchen is well-stocked, and we often cooked dinner at home - although there are several restaurants nearby if you prefer to eat out. We shopped at the two grocery stores in Coral Bay, and the Starfish Market in Cruz Bay, which has a larger selection because it is in a more populated area.
At Anchorage Aweigh, the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom on the main, upper floor open onto a spacious covered patio. The large outdoor couch, outdoor table for four, and separate screened-in sitting area off the master bedroom allow guests to enjoy the outdoor patio in any weather at any time of day.
Inside, an oversized, 3-door sliding door with sliding screen on one side and another sliding glass door with screen on the other side invite the ocean breezes to waft comfortably throughout the home. A second bedroom, down a short flight of stairs, is equally as nice as the upstairs bedroom. There is an outdoor entrance on the lower level to the pool area, which includes another lounging area.
We loved our stay at Anchorage Aweigh, post-hurricanes Irma and Maria. We had all of the services we needed, a beautiful and comfortable home, and as much activity as we wanted. Thank you Scott and Patricia for sharing your special home with us!
Thank you so very much for your kind words. It was great to meet you and we are so glad you didn't come in September! The island is bouncing back and it's wonderful to have guests like yourselves. We hope you make it to Anchorage Aweigh again. Blessings.
This is our second stay at Anchorage Aweigh, so we know what we were getting; a beautiful, well equipped home with million dollar views. That much did not change. I'd also like to give a shout out to Scott and Patty, the owners. They equip the house with beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler. Everything you need but don't want to travel with. We also had some island power outage issues due to a blown power station on the island and Scott and Patty came through with a generator to make the inconvenience no more than a little blip on the radar. We heard other vacationers complaining on the beach about their power issues. Not us! I highly recommend anyone to rent this beautiful home that is supported by two amazing people. Can't say enough about the home or Scott and Patty. Thank you for helping make lasting memories for my wife and I and our two teen boys.
Thanks so very much for your kind review. We are happy that your family enjoyed your time at Anchorage Aweigh and on St. John. We felt bad that we lost power for over 24 hours, but happy that WAPA was able to fix the problem relatively quickly. From one Rose family to another, thank you and we hope you are able to come back to St. John one day soon. Best Wishes, Patricia & Scott
Slice of paradise at a great price
We really enjoyed our stay at Anchorage Aweigh. We are a couple in our 40's that have visited the island six times and have always stayed in homes rented through HomeAway. We have stayed in what would be considered "higher end" and higher priced homes, for the most part. We are very particular in where we stay and research quite extensively. We knew we would be up early and out the door beginning our days with hikes and then beach hopping. This location could not have been better for us. We enjoy staying on the Coral Bay side of the island. The view was amazing even better in person. The pool was one of the best and we have had a pool at all of our rentals. The bed is a king size and noted as very comfortable by many. For us, we usually sleep on a very firm tempurpedic mattress. Therefore, mattresses are always an adjustment for us. The layout was perfect for our stay just enough space for a couple utilizing the first floor only. There is an additional bedroom downstairs equal to the upstairs bedroom that they open if you have more guests. Our bedroom had an AC unit that cooled the room off quickly. We kept it off while out all day with no issues. The living area and kitchen do not have air conditioning they have sliding doors with screens to allow for the breeze to come in. We were there in August and it was a bit humid at times for us but manageable. We enjoyed the outdoor shower as well. The kitchen had everything you would need for cooking. The refrigerator has an ice maker. We used the beach chairs, towels and cooler every day. They also had paper towels, toilet paper and laundry detergent readily available. The washer and dryer were nice to have as well. One of the best parts of this rental was the owners. We really enjoyed Patricia and Scott. They are friendly and are ready to help if needed. They checked in via text to see if we needed anything during our stay. They offer plenty of privacy and only interact if you show interest. I would highly recommend it because they are amazing people and have a great story to tell. Anchorage Aweigh is not only an economical stay for all that you get. It is a wonderful place to create memories and to explore this beautiful island. It was the perfect fit for us. Thank you to Scott and Patricia for making such a beautiful home that will offer so many travelers a slice of paradise at a great price.
So thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay here at Anchorage Aweigh. Our impromptu dinner together was very nice! Hope to see you two again! Thanks for the beautiful review! Best Wishes, Patricia & Scott
The most amazing property!!!! And the view!!!
First, Patricia and Scott are wonderful. They are here as much or as little as you need and have thought of everything. The villa was fully stocked with paper goods, beach chairs, cooler, towels, new appliances including a gas stove (but we didn't cook) and every movie on DVR under the sun (not that you will watch much TV). The way they have designed the homes, there is complete privacy. The homes are only connected by the most amazing pool!!! The pool makes you feel like you are on the edge of a cliff with the most spectacular backdrop of Coral Bay. And then there is the wrap around porch with the same stunning view. Seeing all the boats in the beautiful Bay is so peaceful. It was our daily hang out for coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon.
Second, we thought the location in Coral Bay was perfect. Right down the hill is Indigo Grill. Best food in Coral Bay and great atmosphere. Pickles in Paradise, great breakfast and lunch is right around the corner and so is the well stocked market. You are 15 minutes from the best snorkelling on the island- Waterlemon Cay one way and Salt Pond the other. The ride to Cruz Bay is 20-25 minutes. If you take the North Shore road by the beaches the view is so spectacular, who really cares how long it takes.
Back to the villa itself- two bedrooms each with a full bath that includes the best rock and shell outdoor shower ever. If there isn't a second couple, the second bedroom remains closed. There is air conditioning, but we never turned it on. With the fans and how the villa is designed with huge sliders to capture the breeze you don't need it. Plus it truly keeps it tropical.
The road and driveway are both paved and there ample room to turn around in the driveway.
We have fallen in love with Anchorage Aweigh and will definitely be back!!!
