My husband and I loved Marcia’s place! It was rustic, but that’s what we were looking for. It was super cute cottage. Marcia’s hospitality was the icing on the cake! We will be back, if at all possible, to stay at Marcia’s cottage every year. We will just stay longer next time.
We had an AMAZING time at this little slice of heaven. It was all we needed. So simple and serene. We absolutely adored the little Christmas cottage and will definitely be back! We initially tried to just hitch and use the VITRAN but my hubby is a little impatient and wanted more freedom so we decided to just rent a jeep. But if you are in no rush, the bus station and restaurants are definitely in walking distance. Marcia told us all the places that we needed to eat at. She and her family were amazing and we couldn't ask for a better host. See you in the near future Marcia!!:)
Our stay at Marcia's little cottage was brief but very nice. Everything was as described, and you have everything you need for a stay in Coral Bay. Marcia was easy to communicate with and a great host!

We come down annually and stay at Cinnamon Bay Campgrounds. They are closed this year because of the hurricane. The Christmas Cottage and staying on Coral Bay was a refreshing change. We gained a new appreciation for the island on many levels. We will be back!
We are long time campers at Cinnamon Bay Campground. This was a great place for us since campground was closed by Irma. Come to St John. Still gorgeous and no crowds.
Exceptional place and amazing hostess!
Loved the Christmas Cottage, quaint and comfy. Added bonus was Marcia, a wonderful and gracious hostess
