Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fun & Contentment is the best views & property you could ever ask for! Breathtaking views everywhere you look with idea location high above Coral Bay. The views are incredible! Four-wheel jeep for drive up to house is recommended and so much fun getting there. This place has it all with everything from amazing comfortable beds with AC to kitchen with all you need. The deck was amazing with hot tub, pool. We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon and it was spectacular from the deck! This property is just stunning and if your looking for a properly that has it all....look no farther.

Thank you Heather and Joe for sharing this amazing slice of paradise with us!

Great views! Lovely house! Pool and hot tub are wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Fun & Contentment house is a wonderful property in an ideal location. High above Coral Bay, we could see all the surrounding British Virgin Islands and East End. The views are incredible. We enjoyed the beaches and trails of St. John in the morning, and returned to our "home for the week" in the early afternoon to enjoy the pool. Every day on our drives, we encountered the locals: mountain goats, roosters, donkeys, and deer. We enjoyed our meals "at home" on the outdoor patio. We enjoyed some meals out at Shipwreck Landing and Skinny Legs that are a mile or two down the road. Local grocery is located down the hill from the house.

You really must have a four-wheel jeep for the drive up to the house, but the drive is not really too bad-- part of the adventure everyday. Joe and Heather were easy to work with and the home had everything needed: air conditioner in the bedroom, blender, grill, and kitchen supplies.

You will not regret renting this beautiful home.

Everything that has been stated about the views are correct ---- they are breathtaking from everywhere on the deck. Getting up each morning to sit at the patio table with breakfast and coffee was the perfect start. The constant breezes are refreshing.

There was nothing else we needed during our stay at Fun & Contentment. We will absolutely recommend this property for anyone planning a trip to St. John.

Thank you to Heather and Joe for sharing this slice of heaven with all of us.

Owner's Response: One of the best things for us as a villa owners is the moment we walk our guests outside and they see the view for the first time - St John is a truly beautiful place and I am happy that our villa shows off the natural beauty of St John.

Hilltop Retreat

  • 5 of 5

It was a bit of a rough and vertical ride up to the house but once we arrived it was just as we hoped and definitely what we needed! Loved returning to the house after a long day of snorkeling and jumping into the hot tub, enjoying a glass of wine and gazing out over the gorgeous views. The beds were very comfortable and the crisp white sheets and AC a blessing after a long day out in the sun. There was a constant breeze so never saw any bugs and it was always comfortable outside on the beautiful balcony. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay - hope to see you again! With all the rain this year the road has been extra rough - the road was just regraded last week but still is not for everyone and does require a four wheel drive vehicle.

The photos don't do the house or the view justice.

  • 5 of 5

First thing is that the views from the deck were unbelievable. Even my teenagers who are normally unimpressed by things like beautiful views were blown away. We sat out on the deck for breakfast and in the evenings to unwind. The breeze would blow and we'd just feel relaxed. The house is great. The bedrooms were beautiful, the kitchen had everything you needed and there were beach chairs, towels and a cooler that we used every day. Heather and Joe were great and so helpful with suggestions and advice. The driveway did take a bit of getting used to, but we rented a jeep along with 95% of the visitors (it seems) so it was fine. I would highly recommend renting this house if you love the beach and getting away from it all.
