About Helen

After 12 years of St. John vacations, we took the plunge in 2002 and purchased 'our' Caribbean dream home. The Lemoines and Peters, known to enjoy a margarita or two after a day at the beach, decided on a most appropriate moniker, 'HAPPY OUR.' We hope you'll choose 'OUR' own private paradise on St. John for your island vacation.

Helen purchased this house in 2002

Why Helen chose Coral Bay

Great Coral Bay location. Amazing dual views. Comfortable and casual living in our Caribbean home.

Great quiet location with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

What a great quiet location at the 4th switchback up above Skinny Legs. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle, which will come in handy for your day trips. Coral Bay is the opposite of Cruz Bay and very laid back. There are many colorful characters among the locals who will share some amazing stories with you after a couple of cocktails.

Fabulous views, cheerful home, attentive hosts and beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Happy Ours was perfect for us. We had two couples. Plenty of space and privacy for each couple, as well as great space for gathering. Spent all evenings and mornings on the deck, the big table was perfect for our nightly game of dominos, kitchen space was big so we were not tripping all over each other. All the amenities we needed were there. Nice to have beach chairs, towels and a cooler for our daily adventure. The home is very whimsical, tropical, spacious and comfortable. We truly loved the outdoor showers!

Helen was a great host. She was so attentive to our planning. She forwarded information on car rental suggestions, restaurants, beaches, markets, weather, ocean conditions and ferry schedules. Always answered my emails promptly and was very kind. She arranged for Tom to meet us at Skinny Legs grill and follow him up to the house. He was kind and reviewed all we needed to know as well as answered a few call we made later in the week.

Our vacation was wonderful on St John, such a lovely island. Thank you Helen, Ken and Tom

Fabulous beach vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the "vibe" at Happy Our - tropical, happy, spacious, comfortable, relaxing! We really enjoyed listening to music through the stereo's outdoor speakers on the balcony. In the morning we saw humming birds and an iguana in the trees. The outdoor showers are delightful. A cactus was blooming at night right next to the shower. The view itself is worth the trip. The pool area is it's own oasis. The beach chairs were so nice to have. Everything was very well maintained. The only minor complaint would be to have more Tupperware type of containers in the kitchen for leftovers and picnics to the beach. We had a wonderful stay at Happy Our. Hope to be back soon!

Cute house in Coral Bay!

  • 4 of 5

Cute house with all the amenities! View of Coral Harbor from the deck amazing! Great location to access beaches & cute restaurants in Coral Harbor. Enjoyed the awesome outdoor shower and pool. Would not be a good fit for families with small children. The main house has an upstairs room with two twins, the other bedroom is a down a flight of outdoor stairs and a separate entrance. Great for two or three couples or families with older kids who would appreciate the privacy. The beds not very comfortable. Tom, the property manager met us in Cruz Bay and showed us around and he was great!

" Our " Favorite

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year in a row staying at Happy Our in beautiful Coral Bay. After trying other places, we keep coming back to this clean spacious home that offers some of the best views on the island . If your family enjoys cooking like ours, then you will be impressed with one of the best equipped kitchens in any vacation house we have seen. . Don't want to cook, then take a five minute trip down the hill from the house takes you to Skinny Leg's for burgers or to Aqua Bistro where you can have a drink with an ocean view and the best buffalo grouper sandwich on St. John !

Bed rooms are very comfortable and the outdoor shower is stellar!

Short drive takes you out to Vie's Beach and Snack Shack , our favorite spot for an easy going beach experience. Maho and Francis Bays are also a short drive away. We didn't use the pool very much but when we did it was really refreshing.

The owners and property manager were very helpful and are genuinely interested in making your stay enjoyable. We will be back next year.

Lovely in every way

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Happy Our and enjoyed everything from the beautiful house to the pool to the great location! The owners also made our stay easy and enjoyable, providing us with everything we needed before our arrival. The property manager is also extremely nice and very helpful!

We stayed here with our two children and there was plenty of room for all of us! The three separate bedrooms would also make it great for three couples. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need and there was a nice large table to accommodate 8! We also loved the outdoor showers and the kids loved eating on the deck while looking over the water. They also loved the pool - which was clean and always warm!

The location was great! Easy ride to the beaches - kids especially loved Maho. We also enjoyed a great hike right down the hill from the house. We also enjoyed the great proximity to all types of restaurants from burgers to fine dining. We had an absolutely wonderful time and can't wait to go back. We will definitely be returning to Happy Our!
