I second the comments of previous reviewers who note how lovely and peaceful this place is. The owners were very kind and helpful. Jones even vacuumed out our rental car for us when the agency asked us to remove all sand before returning it! We loved the composting system using soldier crabs, the incredible views from inside and out and the proximity to Coral Bay, Salt Pond Bay and the Lameshur beaches. We used our 4wd option for the unpaved part of the driveway to the upper parking and took it slowly and were fine. Thank you Jones and Marjorie for providing coolers, a large water jug, beach towels and beach chairs for guests to use. We also appreciated the suggestion to drive to Cruz Bay on Hwy 20 rather than 10 (Centerline Road) on the day we left--much smoother and not busy in the early morning. We hope to return and would love to stay at Iola again.
Beautiful home. The artwork and views were breathtaking, and the constant tropical breeze was just what these two NH travelers needed. Coral Bay is quieter than Cruz Bay, with less to do, but we love that. Private, secluded, but with everything one needs. Phil and Marjorie are lovely hosts.
Best stay yet!
The property is incredibly well maintained. The views are outstanding! So much peace and quiet, it was true paradise. We were beyond comfortable and had the best week here. We can't wait to visit again!
The house is beautiful and the views are amazing.
The owners are awesome and take care of all your needs.
Five stars all the way.
Wonderful property and property owners!
We had a wonderful time staying at IOLA! Jones and Margie are the best hosts ever! You stay on the second floor footprint of their awesome home with beautiful views! They give you all the privacy you need even though they are living downstairs. They were also hugely helpful with "things to do" and couldn't be friendlier. The sunsets are pretty amazing. The property's landscaping is very well done, offering just enough privacy but not taking away from the views. They have put together a cute zen garden where we enjoyed sitting and watching the lizards, geckos, and hermit crabs scurrying around while having coffee, etc. The bed in the sleeping porch and furniture is very comfortable. We did not even use the air conditioned bedroom as the trade winds and fans kept the room cool enough for sleeping. The eating and lounging areas offer plenty of places to sit and relax, BOTH INDOORS AND OUT. The views from both inside the house and out are breathtaking(Tortola and the BVI's on one side and St Croix from the other)! The house has plenty of windows to enjoy these views while inside. The view from the sleeping porch was always a good way to start the day. Star gazing from the deck at night is a must as there is very little light pollution on this side of the island. Coral Bay is beautiful and the locals are very fun. Iola is far enough away to feel secluded but close to the village where you can eat, drink, and enjoy live music. The local restaurants all had delicious offerings (and different styles of food) at what seemed to be lower prices / larger portions than what We've found on St Thomas and in Cruz Bay/St John. Make sure you visit Salt Pond for the best snorkeling and buy some local island crafts from the vendor there, Delroy "Ital" Anthony. The villa is right outside the Virgin Islands National Park, which is a true treasure, where you can enjoy hiking, history, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! I HIGHLY recommend this property and would DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN! * A JEEP OR SUV WITH CLEARANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ACCESS THE TOP DRIVEWAY OF THIS PROPERTY (Steep and rocky) *
'Iola' is located 10 minutes past Coral Bay 'Town' on the quiet end of St John. Suggest you rent a 4wd vehicle to enjoy the adventures and all the many beaches you want to explore. From Cruz Bay cross the island via Centerline Road takes 30 to 40 minutes.
Other Activities: St John has over 40 hiking trails thru the national park & over 22 beaches. Snorkeling is excellent in aqua bays.
About Philip Jones
We first visited St John on our honeymoon. We fell in love with this island immediately and never left. Come see for yourself. Warning! St John can be addictive. Many lose their soles and leave their souls behind.
