Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dramatically perched 60 ft. over the calm Caribbean Sea, 'Cliffhanger' presents stunning views across Coral Harbor and into Hurricane Hole. Completely re-modeled and professionally decorated in 2011, this waterfront villa offers everything new; a new modern full kitchen with all the amenities, new bathrooms with stunning detail, and all new furniture, appliances, and electronics. 'Cliffhanger' is ideal for couples and perfect for families, as it comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests with its 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The master bedroom, kitchen, extra bathroom and living space is located on the main level. The other two bedrooms, each with their own entrance off the lower deck, can be reached via an exterior staircase. Having our home set up this way allows us to offer the master bedroom alone or in combination with either one or two of the downstairs bedrooms. Gaze into the mesmerizing blue and watch boats from all parts of the globe as they glide through the turquoise waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Spot turtles and sting rays from the sprawling dramatic deck while mixing drinks at the outdoor bar. Cheer on sailboat races from the comfort of your hammock.

'Cliffhanger' is located waterfront to Coral Bay with surf sounds around the entire property. From the villa you can easily access the Virgin Islands National Park and white sand beaches for hiking, water sports such as sailing, snorkeling, or diving, or just plain lounging on the beach. The Village of Coral Bay is just under 1/2 mile away, with many shops, restaurants, bars, and access to an array of adventurous activities. The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.

Conveniently located with paved access to the front door, high speed internet, cable TV, soft linens, spacious decks both in the sun and in the shade, big blue ocean views from every room, and lush outdoor environment; these are but a few of the features that make 'Cliffhanger' the perfect choice for your St. John vacation.

Another 5 stars for Cliffhanger!

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger was perfect for our family. Jared, one of the caretakers was easy to connect with and responsive during our stay. When we arrived we found an incredibly clean house. We had no needs; I especially appreciated the niceties like, soap in the bathrooms, kitchen sink, and the paper products we found when we arrived, beach towels were so nice to not have to pack. Board games for our family were used everyday! We have stayed in St John before but never with access to water; it was an amazing addition. The steps down, although steep were very sturdy and solid. Our youngest was 7 and she navigated well. We swam and snorkeled at the house almost everyday. The views were incredible, I woke up for the sunrise many mornings and found a peaceful place for yoga. Parking was easy and convienient (relative to the island), which makes a big difference. Denise, the owner was very responsive and helpful, she helped ensure our stay was easy and comfortable. In short we really loved our stay in this lovely, comfortable, clean house, we would most certainly stay here again.

Breathtaking serenity from a uniquely placed property

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a serene getaway from the hustle of our working lives and Cliffhanger delivered in spades. Coral Bay is the perfect spot to hide out. While still being close enough to the beaches, restaurants and stores to be convenient, you feel like there is no one for miles around you. The property couldn't be better named, since it is literally hanging off the Coral Bay hillside, with nothing between the house and the water. Taking meals and drinks on the balcony overlooking the bay couldn't be more relaxing, especially when accompanied by visits from friendly birds and iguanas.

The property has everything that you need, including helpful things that are either too difficult to transport or we just plain forget; like beach chairs, bug spray and umbrellas, to name but a few. Both the owner and manager couldn't have been more helpful ensuring that we had everything we needed to make out trip perfect.

Can't wait to return.

Great Location, Great House

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained, beautiful house in Coral Bay. 60 ft over crashing waves with 180 degree views of paradise .Located minutes from restaurants and groceries. Owner was very attentive and easy to communicate with.

First day at the house ,we were greeted by a 5 foot Nurse shark swimming by the house on the surface.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend this property .

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time in writing up a review for Cliffhanger. Thank you for your kind words! We are happy that our home is in a convenient location to some of the grocery stores and restaurants of Coral Bay, helping make vacations a little more relaxing. One of our favorite things to do in the morning is to sit on the deck and see what we can spot in the water. We've seen a few different kinds of fish and sting rays. Happy you were able to catch a glimpse! We look forward to hosting you in the future!

Doesn't Get Any Better

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I have been here twice and cannot say enough good things about this house, Denise, the location, the service provided by Jared/Austin, amusing critters that perch outside in the trees and amenities. Everything you need in the kitchen and more. The pictures cannot do the view justice. Beautifully decorated. We like Coral Bay because it has everything we like (beaches, restuarants, grocery) and less of the stuff we don't (crowds). We ran around every day snorkeling at the various beaches (Francis, Salt Pond, Maho, Honeymoon, Salomon, Waterlemon, Lameshur), hiking a few lazier trails, sampling food at the restaurants of Coral Bay (Shipwreck, Aqua Bistro, Concordia, Indigo Grill, Skinny Legs, Miss Lucy's - all very good) and sightseeing. Oh, and an official taste testing of everyone's version of the Painkiller cocktail. There is not one single thing I would change. Except maybe that I owned this gorgeous house instead of sweet Denise. : )

A dream vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger is a dream! Everything about it is spectacular - the views, its proximity to the water, its perfect location in town. It's close to everything and yet completely hidden, with no hairpin turns to navigate to get to. The sound of the water is everywhere and the warm breezes are healing. Of all the places we've stayed in on St John, Cliffhanger in Coral Bay is hands down our favorite place. And this is despite the fact that 3 of our 5 full days there were rainy and windy. Watching boats move into and out of the safe haven of Coral Bay harbor as soft rain fell on the bay was mesmerizing. Owner Denise is absolutely great to work with, very responsive, very nice and extremely helpful. We're already getting our calendars lined up to return next year.

RELAX AND UNWIND

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful vacation home with another couple and found it to be as spectacular as other reviewers noted. This is our second visit to St. John and this home did not disappoint. It was spotless, furnished nicely, had everything we needed, was close to the beaches and the local restaurants. We slept like a rock with the comfortable beds and the sound of the ocean waves hitting the shores below. We spent 2 of our 7 days right there at the house and found it was our most enjoyable restful days we spent there. So many nooks and crannies to settle in and relax whether it be the comfortable lounge chairs, hammock, chairs down beside the water, and even reading in bed looking out over the water. It was especially well set up for multiple couples. When we wanted time alone we simply went to our separate deck on the lower level and felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Our days were spent eating breakfast in, packing a lunch and heading to the beach, stopping for happy hour in the afternoon at the Café Concordia for our $4. Painkillers. Yummm. Then we headed back to the house for some reading, relaxation and a nap before heading our for dinner and coming back home for playing cards and board games. We all agreed it was the most restful vacation we ever had. On a calm water morning we headed down below to our own waterfront and snorkeled to the left near the rocks jutting out of the water. Not to be missed! Some of the best snorkeling we did. Fish galore and some really cool coral and rock formations. That was an unexpected treat for never leaving home. Denise was wonderful to work with and we had no issues at all. Would definitely return to this wonderful home. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about Cliffhanger. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed relaxation time and snorkeling at our home. We are very fortunate to have the water access at the bottom of our property. We know you have to work your way into the sea, but it sure is great to be able to hike back up the path for a nice cool drink after a great swim! We are glad you took advantage of every minute! Please come back and stay with us again.
