About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 7) - can be rented as two separate units

Welcome to 'Coral Bay Outlook' – a beautiful hillside villa overlooking Coral Bay harbor with views of the British Virgin Islands. Coral Bay Outlook provides a relaxing Caribbean retreat that is perfect for exploring all that St. John has to offer. The National Park's premiere beaches and hiking trails are just a short drive away while the restaurants and small shops in the Village of Coral Bay are within walking distance. Nearby restaurants include Skinny Legs, Island Blues, Miss Lucy's, Aqua Bistro, and Shipwreck Landing. Many of these restaurants feature live music on selected nights. Even with so much to do on St. John, what many guests remember most is relaxing on the Outlook's deck with family, friends and their favorite tropical beverage while watching the sun retreat behind Bordeaux Mountain.

The villa's main level features a large great room with kitchen, dining and living areas, a spacious deck, and two large bedroom suites - each with their own bathroom and delightful indoor-outdoor shower. The great room also includes an HDTV, DVD player, basic cable service, excellent WiFi service and powered speakers for connecting to your smart phone, tablet or laptop.

The lower garden level of the villa provides a charming one-bedroom living space with queen bedroom, bath, kitchen, seating area and private deck with expansive views of Coral Bay.

Note: The main two-bedroom upper level may be rented separately at a discounted rate. Contact owner for details.

Coral Bay Outlook is comfortably furnished with natural rattan furniture, tropical hardwood cabinets and terracotta tile floors. The rental is supplied with ample linens, towels, beach accessories, guidebooks and more - everything you need for a carefree vacation. The open plan kitchen on the main level has a dishwasher, gas range, refrigerator and is equipped for group cooking. A Weber gas grill is on hand for memorable outdoor grilling on the scenic deck.

Access to the property is on a quiet, paved road. The villa is surrounded on three sides by mature tropical plantings. From the decks overlooking the harbor, you can watch the boats traversing the harbor, watch spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and relax while gazing at Norman Island and Tortola in the neighboring British Virgin Islands.

After an eventful day spent hiking, sightseeing, shopping or swimming in the warm Caribbean waters, retreat to your bedroom suite and drift off to the gentle chorus of tropical frogs and palm trees rustling in the evening Trade Winds breezes.

About Annie


We live just north of Boston, Massachusetts in the historic seaport of Salem. We love living near the water and sailing during the summer. I head-up a regional, non-profit organization that works in collaboration with the National Park Service on trail development, historic preservation, and heritage education projects. Andy works in media research and technology at MIT. We have one daughter.

Cheers, Annie & Andy

Annie purchased this villa in 2005

Why Annie chose Coral Bay

We enjoy sailing but the season in New England is very short so fifteen years ago we started sailing in the Caribbean during the winter. We fell in love with the Virgin Islands and especially St John with its uncrowded beaches, soft sand, clear water and spectacular snorkeling. When we wanted to buy a vacation house in a warm place, we decided to buy in the US Virgins and chose the village of Coral Bay because it is the prettiest part of this beautiful island island, and it is also the most convenient place to reach the best south shore and north shore beaches in the National Park.

What makes this villa unique

We have made every effort to make our home very comfortable for us - and for you! We like to cook; sit on the deck and admire the view; get on line and catch up on our email; go for a swim; hike in a beautiful place; explore ruins; snorkel; go our for dinner, and also just stay in and relax. The Outlook is convenient for all this and more. It is truly a place to get away from it all in comfort - and yet still have instant, excellent email/internet service in every room of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

How do you begin to summarize a week in Paradise? What an enormously special place, and what an honor to be able to spend some time here. The house is magnificent; well equipped throughout and the location and view are wonderful. It is a fabulous place to call home for ten days. The nearly constant tradewinds gave it a sense of timelessness, and the feathered residents of the area added more local color: bananaquits, frigate birds, thrushes, pelicans, and even some species that travel all the way to New England. Then there are the hikes in to some undisturbed beaches and the coral reefs teaming with beauty and diversity. Hard to describe the experience in words....So much to explore here, and even in ten days I feel we just scratched the surface. I'm sure we will be back.

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our needs. We rented the top and bottom for two families. Annie provided everything we needed for our island vacation and we love eating our meals on the balcony overlooking the bay. The road up is seriously steep, but we got used to it after a day or two! There are grocery stores, restaurants and other amenities nearby and nothing is far away on St. John!

The week was a coming together of three couples - longtime friends who get together far less than we would like. What a great week of sharing stories and exploring the island. St John is fantastic and Coral Bay Outlook was the perfect place for this to happen. Coral Bay Outlook provided all that was advertised and then some. And the views from the porch were fantastic! The setting is quiet, relaxing, and the town of Coral Bay was very laid back. The house was well equipped and also offered some nice extras - like numerous guidebooks, information about local services, beach chairs, coolers, etc. Each day we would head off to explore a new beach (or trail) and each night we would share our discoveries over a glass of VI rum. I loved Salt Pond Bay for snorkeling and walking the shore line of nearby Trunk Bay, just because it was so different. Oh, by the way, there is no need to set the alarm to see the fantastic sunrises over the bay - the roosters roaming the village made sure you were awake! I would highly recommend Coral Bay Outlook to anyone wanting to visit and explore St. John.

St. John is truly an amazing place. My extended family (seven in all) spent a lovely week at the Coral Bay outlook. The house is exactly as described, and there were many extra touches that just made it so perfectly handy (coolers and chairs for the beach, a line on the deck to dry towels, information and maps about St. John…) It was a pleasure working with the owner, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Coral Bay outlook if you are looking for a magical place away from the hustle and bustle of your life!

Excellent View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our 10 day stay at Coral Bay Outlook. We stayed in the upstairs unit where the 180 degree views of Coral Bay and beyond were excellent. We enjoyed the outdoor showers, the night sound of the tree frogs, the wild goats and donkeys, the snorkeling, the hiking, feeding the bananaquit honeycreepers, and eating dinner at AquaBistro. The beach chairs were a big bonus. It's difficult to identify a favorite beach since there are so many, and they each have their own attributes. We monitored the winds and currents on the weather channel to determine which area to go for snorkeling each day.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Coral Bay Outlook. We rented the entire house and my mom enjoyed her own space in the downstairs unit. Coming from a very flat, close to sea level area, the hills were intimidating. But worth it for the views, the breeze and being able to sleep comfortably with the windows open. I loved the outside shower! We walked to AquaBistro for dinner twice. The cooler and chairs were a big bonus! We went to a different beach every day and packed lunches and drinks.

I rent often from VRBO. Annie was the most helpful and informative person I have ever rented from! As this was our first time in St. John, I received great information on what to expect and how to get to the Coral Bay from the airport.

Comfortable, convenient and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four came here to escape the relentless Boston snow, and we were in heaven with perfect 85-87 degree temperatures and bay breezes. The home is exactly as pictured. The owner Annie was prompt and pleasant to work with and provided excellent tips and directions. The property manager Kaaren was on top of things and cautioned us that the open air bar might be noisy on one of our nights, but that didn't bother us as the music was fine. Each morning began with sunrises and birdsong. The location is ideal for exploring the entire island from Cruz Bay to the northern beaches to the East End; simply pack your jeep with the coolers and beach chairs provided for your use. You can walk down the hill for groceries, mail/print services and restaurants, then back up to peace, privacy and that amazing view.
