SURVIVED IRMA & MARIA ~ WE HAVE ELECTRICITY

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.

A fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger was the ideal home for our family of five to spend our first week on St. John. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of Coral Bay, and being right on the water was very nice. Of course the views were spectacular, but it was also nice to be able to walk out the back door and carefully navigate the steep stone steps to go snorkeling in the bay. We saw many varieties of fish, a lot of coral and even a couple of stingrays! Salt Pond Bay beach is a nice, sandy beach just a short drive down the road. We had a great time swimming and snorkeling there. Since the wind was out of the north during our stay, we found that Salt Pond was even nicer than the north shore beaches. Carolina Corral, just across the Bay, provided a great experience for our teenage daughter to spend a day volunteering to care of the animals. She loved helping with the horses, donkeys, goats and chickens! The Dolphin Market is nearby and had everything that we needed for meals. We also found three nice restaurants in Coral Bay that served up great meals when we wanted to eat out. The design and decor of Cliffhanger is top-notch. All of the living spaces are beautiful! The kitchen is very well-appointed, making it easy to prepare meals at home. It's a lovely property and we hope to be able to stay at Cliffhanger again on a future visit.

Very Happy to Return Post Hurricanes

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at the beginning of February 2017 at Cliffhanger, our fifth straight year of rental. St. John was in the midst of hurricane recovery. We were anxious to return to the island (our 26th year) but wondered if Cliffhanger and the businesses and infrastructure of Coral Bay would be ready for us. We knew there had been some damage to the villa, but, Denise, the owner assured us that all would be ready for our visit. It was and the required repairs were very well done allowing us to enjoy our stay at a beautiful place with a great view as we always have. And Coral Bay was ready for us: restaurants, groceries, snorkeling rental, etc., etc. This is the time to go and spend time on the “quiet” side of the island.

Wonderful Views and House!

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger was one of the best houses we have ever rented and you just can't beat that view. This was our first trip to St. John and we felt so lucky to have somehow found Cliffhanger and Coral Bay. The decks were amazing and we found the house and its amenities perfect for our family of 4. We had 3 adults and our son (6) - the beach chairs and coolers were a big help, as well as the flat parking spot convenient to the house. Coral Bay was the best (plenty of restaurants and groceries, fewer tourists and crowds). We only went to Cruz Bay once for gas and souvenir shopping, aside from the ferry. Jared and his crew (Austin) were super helpful getting us to the house we arrived and Denise was a great help w/ planning and things to do on the island. We look forward to our return trip and will definitely book this house next time. Thanks Denise for letting us share your slice of paradise. Can't say enough good things about the beaches and snorkeling and crystal clear water :) If you plan on driving the island, definitely recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle!

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.
