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.

Can't wait to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at Coral Bay Outlook couldn't have been better. The main floor was the perfect size for our family of 5. The cottage had everything we needed! The absolutely best part was the location. We had been to St. John 3 times before and knew for our 4th trip (taking our 3 kids for the first time) we wanted to truly embrace the laid back vibe of St John by staying in Coral Bay. The cottage is perfectly located with gorgeous views of the water. We loved having the grocery store and our favorite restaurants, Oasis and The Triple B right at the bottom of the hill. Getting to all our favorite beaches was a breeze. Watching the sun rise from the deck while drinking coffee every morning was the perfect start to every day. We are already thinking about our next trip back and who we can bring with us so we can rent the entire house! :)

Beautiful overlook!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week in St. John and miss it already. The house was lovely! We rented both units and they were both well maintained and had everything we needed. We loved the outdoor showers, the spacious main room, the banakeets that came to visit the deck, and everyone enjoyed having their own beds. The view was breathtaking and it was so nice to have a breeze all the time.

Coral Bay was nice and quiet which was just our speed. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to St. John!

Lovely view, from driving around we give Coral Bay Outlook #1 for its beautiful bay view.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, everything you need in a space. We loved the outdoor main bedroom shower with views of the bay. Clean and well stocked. The property manager contacted us via phone twice making sure all was okay. Ceiling fans or breezes flowing always when the decks open. Annie was a trip saver for us, thank you so much, we WILL be back!!

Girls vacation

  • 5 of 5

On a whim, I rented Coral Bay Outlook for get-away with my two daughters. We were thoroughly taken in by the beautiful view from the upper deck overlooking Coral Bay. We loved the outdoor shower and the high ceilings inside. The location was perfect for us. The grocery store and "Crabby's" water sports rental was just down the hill. We could walk to dinner each night. Each morning we packed up the cooler that was provided and set out to explore a different area of the island. We were glad we had rented a Jeep. The steep drive to Coral Bay Outlook and the winding roads of St. John made for a welcome challenge. I hope to rent from Annie again!
