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!

Stacy Gray purchased this cottage in 2011

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a family of 4. The twin beds could use mattress upgrades but the full bed was comfortable. Location is 10 minutes from town, quiet neighborhood. Cistern water source means conserving water while in cottage.

Very basic cabin

  • 3 of 5

Beds and furniture were very worn. No water view and it could have been cleaner. Ashley was very helpful and met us at the ferry.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time on St. John and also loved the Starfish Cottage. It was perfect for what we needed as we were out and about for most of our trip. It's fun to have a happy hour on the porch and we were very close to downtown Cruz Bay. The Roosters are your alarm clock every morning but it's part of the charm (for me, not so much my boyfriend!) Stacy the owner was always quick to respond with thoughtful answers and Ashley the property manager is so kind and helpful, she's the best!!! The place provides everything that we needed (just two of us), plenty of linens, clean and extras (beach towels, coolers, beach chairs etc.) We would recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to make this an annual trip. St. John is made of magic and we had the time of our lives!

Wonderful cottage up in the middle of nature

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the lovely cottage. We were met and taken up to the cottage which was such a charming place to stay. We loved our time there and found it so relaxing sitting out on the veranda. I can thoroughly recommend staying here and St John was just heavenly to explore.

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
