Do NOT pass this one up!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults stayed at Frangipani for 8 nights and couldn't have asked for anything more! The video & pics do not do this place justice!!! Super easy communication with Ellen about the rental process. Even though my husband & I have been coming to St John for 10 years now, the home was very easy to find right outside of Coral Bay.

Ample space for 6 adults including a loft upstairs and whole separate living quarters downstairs. Everything we needed was at our fingertips: PLENTY of beach towels, coolers, beach bags, beach chairs, linens, a full stocked kitchen (we ended up cooking more then dining out), plenty of dining space both inside & out, tons of furniture and just the right amount of sleeping space! We didn't lack for privacy at all when needed. We LOVED that you could tell the house has had some amazing family times! Plenty of books & games to keep everyone entertained. In fact, one of our families favorite things were all the many books to read including so much island history! We didn't even notice we didn't have internet or a big screen TV.

We arrived after sunset and couldn't have been more in love when the sun came up the next morning. The views are TO.DIE.FOR! No A/C needed with that breeze! There was never a time when the wind wasn't blowing. It was fantastic! The deck space was awesome along the multiple levels with plenty of outdoor furniture. The pool was clean & well kept!

We all use ATT & had coverage on the upper level patio without a problem. Everywhere else in the house & outside was either no service or connected to the BVI's tower. Not that we wanted to be on our phones, but it sure was nice to post pics of the AMAZING views on Facebook. HAHA

We def look forward to returning to this hidden gem!

Perfect for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 weeks at Frangipani over Christmas and New Years with our three sons ages 18, 22, and 24 as a “last” family vacation (our second such vacation). The home afforded plenty of living and sleeping space and we were easily able to prepare dinners and breakfasts there with the facilities provided. The views are spectacular, and the constant breeze made the bedrooms cool and comfortable and kept the bugs away from the decks. There is no internet access at the home, and the television is quite small by today’s standards. The absence of these modern conveniences actually proved to be a plus, as we found that we spent more time engaged in conversation and discussion than would otherwise have occurred with these “distractions.” We are very grateful to Pete who provided valuable information and guidance to us with arranging travel and vehicle rental plans as well as advice regarding dining and shopping. After a long day snorkeling, hiking, sightseeing or shopping, I always looked forward to going back to Frangipani to enjoy the last hour or two of daylight while grilling or relaxing on the deck simply enjoying the view. Frangipani exceeded our expectations.

Homey paradise

  • 5 of 5

We relished in two weeks at Frangipani. Look forward to returning! The perfect staging ground for so many adventures - LOVED being on the quiet east side and it's abundant remote beaches and snorkeling. The house has everything we needed and more (blender for smoothies, small coolers and chairs for the beach, and games!) to make a comfortable HOME for our stay.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family and I spent a few very relaxing weeks at Frangiapani this winter. As everyone has said, the views are incredible and the house is comfortable if not fancy. The kitchen is well appointed, and we found it easy to cook breakfasts and dinners. It had everything we needed to have a great vacation. With the downstairs apartment, there was a good mix of privacy and shared space. Pete was very accommodating and helpful and we loved being in Coral Bay. The steady breeze is good for keeping the Mosquitos away, and we loved stargazing on the porch at night.

St. John and Frangipani is the Perfect Combination for an Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous post-Christmas family vacation to St. John and Frangipani proved to be the perfect island cottage! We arrived to the cottage after dark, but were truly mesmerized with the amazing view once the sun came up the next morning! We also loved the amazing coastal breeze's the house offered! St. John is a very small island so going to any beach or even back over to Cruz Bay from this cottage is relatively easy. We really enjoyed the beaches closer to Coral Bay like Francis and Maho since they proved to be less crowded during the peak season anyway. We loved eating at Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro, and Shipwreck Landing. Frangipani and St. John are a great combo for an amazing family vacation :)

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a great week at Frangipani House. Views are breath taking. You are able to catch both the sunrise and sunsets from the decks. We rented both units to the house, we had a family of 5 and there was plenty of room for us all. Upstairs room has a queen, that room gets a great cross breeze, the loft upstairs has two twins bed there's no door to that room. Downstairs has one bedroom with twin beds in it. The house is a bit worn, needs some TLC, but you have every thing you need there. The driveway is a bit tricky, it's on an incline and backing out there is a bit of a blind spot. Just take it slow. Coral Bay is great! Lots of restaurants and bars. It's a bit of drive to the beaches but that gives you a chance to see the island. Remember to drive on the left. Irva was great, we locked ourselves out and she was able to give us her extra set of keys. She saved the day. We enjoyed our walks every morning up and down the hills of Zimmerman road and Quacco. Every one is very friendly. ANY AND ALL bars and restaurants are good, try them all. Bring bug spray!
