About James M Miller

Our family was drawn to St. John and Kiddel Bay because of our strong interest in special and spectacular natural areas. The island's laid back character, unique National Park and commitment to preserving its natural resources make St. John a rare jewel in the Caribbean.

James M Miller purchased this house in 2005

Why James M Miller chose Saint John

We looked throughout the Caribbean and bought this house right above Kiddel Bay because of its location, surrounded by National Park, and because of the fabulous view!

What makes this house unique

The Perch is located on south shore of St. John, known for its quiet ambience and unique natural and cultural experiences.

The house is a short walk to Kiddel Bay where you will find a secluded beach and some of the best snorkeling on the island. Salt Pond Bay and Lameshur Bay are each within a 10 minute drive as is VIERS, an environmental education and research facility with a fascinating history documented in its small museum.

Great restaurants and a variety of live entertainment await you in the Coral Bay area.

You can snorkel and swim in your back yard during the day, enjoy a fabulous meal and live music at any of the iconic Coral Bay bistros in the evening and truly relax as you watch the shooting stars from the quiet privacy of your deck above Kiddel Bay.

House, location, host - all perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were all as described in the listing. The property manager was responsive in making the reservation, before we arrived, and in promptly addressing a problem after we arrived. The setting is perfect if you want to really get away. Great restaurants within 15 minutes. Beware, a rough road that requires a Jeep or similar vehicle. Kiddle Bay is a rocky beach, but the walk to the Salt Pond Bay parking area, a sand beach, is 10 minutes.

Best. Vacationspotever

  • 5 of 5

This' was our second time here. It bears revisiting which is the best indication of a great rental. It is a snorkeled paradise with easy access to the best beaches, hiking and natural beauty. The accommodations are very functional with great beds and linens, beach towels and plenty of cookware. We stocked up on food at the bigger market in Cruz Bay before we drove over and have not left this side of the island all week. We love the quiet. Where else can you have a whole beach all to yourself most of the time with sea turtles, Angel fish and so much more?

Great home with a stunning view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have previously stayed on St John, but this was our first stay on Kiddel Bay.

The view from the home is stunning and it is just a minute walk down the path to great snorkeling on Kiddel Bay.

The home had everything we needed. I love to cook all meals and the kitchen made it a breeze.

Evening time was spent outside enjoying the sound of the ocean and the stars above. There was plenty of furniture to take advantage of the expansive deck.

Some people might find the drive to the home trying, however, we always rent a Jeep and don't mind it at all.

You will not be disappointed staying in this beautiful home.

Fantastic views in a comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Located near Salt Pond, Kiddle Perch is isolated from the tourist bustle in Cruz Bay and close to some lovely beaches, great restaurants and interesting hikes. I have previously stayed closer to Cruz Bay and was initially dubious about being on this side of the island, but really enjoyed it. Great snorkeling at Kiddle, Europa and Great Lamishur Bay. Salt Pond Bay and Little Lameshur are nice, sandy beaches, great for families with small children. There are some excellent restaurants in the area and live music to enjoy as well. Check out open mic at Concordia and Jazz Brunch on the beach at Miss Lucy's. Nearby hikes include Ram Head and out to the Petroglyphs and sugar ruins. Keep an ear and eye out for the Black Parrots who live in the area, and a watchful eye for land tortoise and many, many hermit crabs! The property caretaker lives downstairs and is very helpful and quiet-we hardly knew he was there. The house is comfortable, private and well-equipped-plenty of towels and comfortable linens, pots/pans/dishes, etc. The fantastic views from the deck make this a magical place to stay-but are best enjoyed early sunrise and sunset, as it gets very hot out there during the day. Plenty of sliding screen doors and ceiling fans kept us cool inside the house night and day. We hope to return some day!

We spent 9 relaxing days at Kiddel perch. The house was clean and we enjoyed a nice breeze all vacation long. Definitely rent a jeep to get out here but then again you would be best with a jeep for exploring the whole island anyways. It is a 10 or so minute drive to Kalabash market and Coral Bay. There is a nice spot for lunch and delicious drinks 5 minutes away. As for the snorkeling, we found Kiddel Bay to be one of the best spots on the island. We saw sea turtles, squid, colorful fish and coral. Another 5 - 10 minutes down the road is beautiful Lameshur Bay and great hiking trails. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. The deck is perfect for evening relaxing (there is a grill) and morning coffee. Wifi worked well, there was a large clean shower, and a comfortable bed to look out at the Caribbean Sea. The skyscape at night is unbelievable. Do not hesitate to stay here!! We will be back. Definitely a gem!!!!

Private, perfect Perch.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at the Perch. The accommodations were casual and very comfortable--just what we were looking for. The cottage is very private, with direct access to the stone beach at Kiddel Bay, which has great snorkeling. It is a few minutes' drive to sandy beaches, hiking trails and wonderful restaurants. There is a beautiful view of Kiddel Bay and the Caribbean Sea from every room, a continuous gentle breeze, and brilliant stars at night. We loved the deck from breakfast in the early morning light to stargazing late at night. It exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to return.
