Amazing Home Nestled in Natural St. John
This property was beautiful! The home is very comfortable (even though it doesnt have A/C), quiet and peaceful. The views are incredible and the pool is amazing. One of our favorite parts was the private beach which had the BEST snorkeling we did in the USVI and BVI! Mark and Nicholas made everything easy and were extremely responsive and helpful. They know the island well and provided us excellent recommendations. We highly recommend this place to stay!
Peaceful and relaxing stay
We just spent 10 days at this place with our three kids. The house provided a great home base for our adventures. The views are amazing and relaxing by or in the pool was our favorite way to unwind after a full day of hiking or snorkeling. The beach is a short walk away, and the kayaks are a nice bonus. Many other beaches and hiking trails are close by.
It is about 15 minute drive from Coral Bay, which offers several great places to eat and a couple of grocery stores. The drive is worth it for the privacy and peace and quiet.
The house has everything you need to cook a meal and plenty of seating areas inside or outside.
We did not end up meeting the hosts in person since we arrived late and during a storm, but they were very welcoming through texts and offered assistance with anything we needed. All our questions were answered quickly and in a helpful manner and we felt welcome throughout our stay.
This property was exactly as depicted. In fact, even better than the pictures show. It was very clean and Mark and Nicholas were very flexible and extremely accommodating. The views from the house are unbelievable. We sat outside morning and night to just take in the surroundings. A local artist provided a watercolor lesson right from the deck of the house. She was even impressed with the views and said she will definitely be recommending this home to others. The pool is a fantastic amenity. We used the kayaks a few times for the easy paddle over to Lime Out (the footing taco bar) and just around the bay. And the snorkeling right off the private beach was great. This was our first VRBO experience and it couldn't have been better! We will definitely be staying here again!!!
Get away from it all, with your own private beach!
We stayed at Mark's house for 4 nights last week. It was remote and quiet and peaceful and beautiful. Being able to take a dip in the salt water pool just outside the master suite in the middle of the night and ponder the Milky Way was so refreshing. I think the place is even nicer than the photos show. The gentle breeze comes through the screened in windows, and the view out over the bay is impressive.
Having access to the homeowners private beach is incredible. My girlfriend and I were the only snorkelers there the few days we went out, and the snorkeling was very nice to both the left and right. Having access to the 2-person kayaks at the beach was amazing, too. We paddled just 5 minutes out to Hansen Bay, tied our kayak off and swam up to Lime Out, a floating Taco & Cocktail Boat (seriously!). It's crazy expensive (like everything else in the Virgin Islands) but tasty tacos, well-made cocktails, and absolutely worth a trip.
We met Mark's neighbors, including Sloop Jones a local artist who lives just down the road. We also met Siggy, who SUPed her way down the bay just to take the trash out. Everyone was so welcoming and nice!
Mark was there to greet us when we showed up and showed us all about the nuances of the house. It was comfortable, clean, and we would absolutely stay there again.
It's certainly far away from Cruz Bay, so if you're looking for nightlife, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking to get away, with some solid breakfast & dinner options a 15 minute drive away in Coral Bay, Mark's place is perfect.
Villa in Paradise
We had an incredible time at this wonderful house. Our host was incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home, giving a great tour of the house and an overview of the area. The beach is close and beautiful, the snorkeling was great. Coral Bay has great food options, and the villa was wonderfully secluded. The owners live nearby on site if anything comes up— you could yell and they’d come running to help.
JUST THE PERFECT LOCATION
We so enjoyed staying at this villa. great size, lovely views, clean, walking distance from beach and two kayaks that got us to explore around the bay and enjoy the floating taco bar that just opened. So much fun!! Thank you
hope to see you next year! would like to ask you to consider sharing photos of your famiy enjoying the house. We'd love to include them on our VRBO site next season.
(P.S.....You left the house in a pristine condition! Really appreciate it!!!)
