About Stacy Gray

We have been coming to St. John for nearly 15 years now. After many visits we decided to purchase a cottage to stay at and share. Of all the many places we have traveled St. John is by far the best! Wonderful beaches, restaurants, shopping and relaxation. Come visit St. John!

Great location, Privacy, and Simple living

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 nights at Starfish with our small kids (5, 4, and 1). There was some confusion upon arrival about where the cottage was. I ended up receiving directions by text message from the care taker, and we found it with no problems. Having a car is a requirement to say here as the road down to the cottage is steep and windy with no taxi access.

It truly is 10 minutes or less to Cruz bay, which was very nice. The fact that there was decent internet was also a big help for us.

The stove was completely broken when we arrived, but apparently they are waiting on a replacement. All of the other amenities were perfect for us. Nothing is glamorous, but it's St. John... and most people who come to the island expect to be in nature, not sitting in luxury.

All that said, it was a great place for us, and definitely met our expectations. The caretaker (who does live below the cabin), was very helpful and responsive to anything we needed.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Ben. We are so happy you and the family enjoyed the trip to St. John and Starfish Cottage. Sorry about the stove, it's hard to get large items fixed or replaced on island. Most people are on "island time" : ) I am happy to say that there is a new stove in there now! Hope to have you stay again next season! Enjoy summer!! Stacy & Fred

Relaxing and Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival we were greeted by the caretaker and given a tour of the cottage, shown where supplies were located and given detailed information about island amenities. The cottage was very clean and bright. The views from the deck ... gorgeous! Lush green all around! We enjoyed our coffee on the deck each morning before heading off for daily adventures. The cottage was always a great, relaxing spot to return after a long-day of hiking, beach going and dining. We would highly recommend Starfish Cottage as a beautiful vacation retreat.

Great Location, Convenient and Clean!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Starfish Cottage for our first trip to the islands ever. The location was great and the privacy was exactly what we were looking for! Air conditioning, a place to grill on the deck, our own private retreat, what more could you ask for? Great location for quickly getting downtown and to the beaches. We were greeted upon arrival and settled right in. We plan on gong back again this year and will definitely stay at Starfish Cottage again!

Starfish cottage stay

Our stay at the cottage was great! The place was clean and close to town. I enjoyed spending the morning hours on the deck listening to the birds and getting some sun. We would definitely go back next time we visit St John!
