Many of my guests have commented that "its better than advertised" and it has "some of the best snorkeling on St John" The house has everything you need so you should be fine packing I carryon luggage for your vacation.

A lovely house on a beautiful bay
This is the third time we've stayed at Bob's place, and each time I have had the same experience. It's so beautiful there, I want to go back again. The house is on its own bay and it's all windows (and a lovely verandah) with a view east. You can see some of the BVI stretching away and watch the dawn and the clouds come in on the trade winds. On a practical note, the house is very comfortable with a nice bedroom, a big, airy great room, a large bathroom, and a big kitchen. I think the trade winds blow away the bugs. There aren't really any neighbors except goats and donkeys and the stray pelican. It's a great find.
This place was perfect! We enjoyed an extremely private and romantic week of absolute bliss! Spectacular views! Unbelievable sunrises! The restaurants nearby were amazing! I can't wait to come back!!! Best vacation ever!
Nov 2019 stay
House is great! Very private location! You definitely need 4 wheel drive to make it up and down the driveway. Yes, St John roads are hilly, but they are made to accommodate 2 way traffic. The driveway is a single lane with extremely tight turns, as in turn as tight as you can, back up to make more room, then complete the turn. The shoreline is filled with coral fragments and you will hear the waves throughout the house. I tried snorkeling, but the visibility was horrible with maybe 1 - 2 feet visibility. The location is not in a protected bay and conditions have to be perfect in order to snorkel or swim. That said, Hansen Bay is a short drive away with good snorkling, a nice beach, and be sure to get some food and drinks at Lime Out (a floating eatery). The house was clean, bed was comfortable (a little on the firm side per my wife), and the kitchen had all of the needed appliances and utensils.
Beautiful and relaxing
My husband and I just returned from our stay at this cottage. It was perfect! Just what we needed to get away from it all. We woke up to the beautiful sunrise every morning, had coffee on the porch, and watched the group of goats go down the beach for their daily trek. The goats came back by every evening as the sun went down!
The kitchen was nicely stocked, and we were able to make breakfast and dinner everyday. We found that restaurants were quite expensive so we only ate lunch out, and had other meals at the house.
We made good use of the snorkel gear at the house. We weren't able to snorkel right at the house, but we took the snorkel gear with us to a couple beaches on the island. Maho Bay was our favorite spot because there were many sea turtles. There was also a cooler that came in handy when we went snorkeling and for hiking. We just filled it with ice and drinks and put it in the back of the jeep.
We could not have asked for a nicer location. The house is on it's own private beach. The closest town of Coral Bay is about 20 minutes drive away, so you can get to restaurants and groceries pretty quickly.
We can't wait to visit again!!
The house is located on its own private bay, Stony Bay, inside of
privateer bay. There are no neighbors in this bay so you will have it all to yourself. I can guarantee no noise from cars, trucks, construction, dogs, roosters, people etc. Its a truly amazing location.
Coral bay has everything you need and is just 13 minutes away.
