Perfect Private Paradise
This is an amazing home. It's so much better than the photos, which are pretty amazing. Everyone who saw my snapchats of the home and pool wants to stay there. We thought we might miss the air conditioning, but it's so peacefully breezy upstairs in the bedroom area, that we were never hot at night. The fact that the upstairs is all screen is also amazing. You can leave everything open to the breeze and the views all the time! We thought we might miss a microwave, but the kitchen is so well appointed that we didn't miss it one bit. The pool and deck/patio area are amazing. I will have those views in my mind for the rest of my life! This property is well worth the drive, even with 3 children (ages 10, 7 and 5). Owners were very responsive to questions and requests for recommendations. Highly recommend this property and hope to stay there again soon. We didn't want to leave.
Wow, Thank you for the awesome review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay on this amazing little rock in the sea. We hope you get to come back soon
My husband and enjoyed our stay at Dove cottage. We definitely miss it and St. John! Our favorite part of the property was the pool deck and the beautiful views of Tortola: we saw a rainbow on 2 mornings. We left the beach early a couple times to hang out at the pool. The house was clean and nicely decorated.
It was our first time staying on the East End of St. John. The drive to Cruz Bay was about a 1/2 hour with a few steep hills and sharp turns along the way . Coral Bay is closer. My husband enjoys driving so we really did not mind. However, I can see the drive being a challenge for some folks. We miss seeing the donkeys on our way to Coral Bay and the goats on the road near the cottage :) Jared and his team were great to work with. They responded quickly to our questions and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities. We were lucky and blessed to sneak our vacation in before the government shutdowns due to COVID-19. Our stay was truly a treat and a fantastic experience. I would recommend booking this property!
Perfect for us
This was our first trip to St John, and Dove Cottage was perfect for us. We were able to unplug and relax. The Cottage is located on the East end of the island where it is very quiet. Jared and staff were helpful and there for us if we needed them. The biggest challenge in the Cottage would be a tight spiral staircase, but there was a second set of stairs if needed. We hope to return to St John and Dove Cottage.
Sad to leave, and now, two weeks later, still sad
Mid-stay, we began referring to the trip as our 33rd honeymoon and by the end of it, we decided it was our most romantic yet. Dove Cottage far exceeded our expectations, which is something because they do a good job of representing it in the photos. Still, you can't appreciate just how stunning the views are until you're standing there on the terrace, gazing at the sea and Tortola across the way and the archipelago (?) of lovely, serene islands, here and there, extending to the horizon, and pleasure boats worth more than your house by a lot passing unhurriedly and sailboats tacking, and the turquoise waters along the perimeter of Haul-over Bay. Or, maybe you have managed to wrench yourself away from that view and find yourself lounging on the daybed on the upstairs back porch gazing (much gazing) contentedly out over Hansen Bay and the silver water and St. Croix far off in the distance. And the ceiling fan is making a pleasant breeze. We knew the views would be lovely, but hadn't fathomed just how lovely, and in every direction! I think you can see water from every window in the cottage.
Dove Cottage really is a cottage--interesting doors and windows with interesting hardware, real shutters. I don't know how old the cottage is but it feels like an old (charming-old) cottage that has been immaculately maintained. We loved this about it. It is perfectly sized for a couple.
We spent hours a day on the terrace. Morning coffee and mimosas, afternoons trying to read but forgetting to look at the pages, evenings watching the sunset sky and lights come up on Tortola. The outdoor furniture is very nice. You want to sit on all of it. We enjoyed lounging on the day bed, which affords an especially lovely view. We spent a half hour one afternoon sitting out in a gentle rain. We enjoyed the pool. It is just as cool as it looks.
The place is very private. From the terrace, you can see only one other house, down below, but they can't see you! (I'm pretty sure). There are very few houses nearby. Still, it is an easy drive into Coral Bay.
Jared was as responsive as he could be. He texted back immediately when we had questions. We had an issue one day, which I would have been happy to address myself had I been able to find the necessary tool (plunger). Jared came right over. And then listened politely for half on hour to us gushing about the place. Great guy.
I'd go on but I'm out of characters. Truly wonderful place, we highly recommend it.
My family of four, two adults and two teenagers, just returned from a week at Dove Cottage. We loved the house, with it's stunning views from all directions. It had everything we needed and wanted for a quiet, relaxing break from the cold. We loved the pool and lounging on the numerous chairs that all took advantage of the view. The kitchen was perfect and we ate all of our meals outside, looking across the water at Tortola. On the days that we were out and about on the island, we were happy to return to this wonderful house.
The house has some quirks, which didn't bother us, but are worth noting. There is no indoor shower (but we take enough indoor showers as it is). The shower is off the bathroom on the second floor, so technically it's an indoor/outdoor bathroom. The spiral staircase is narrow, so anyone with mobility issues would need to be aware.
Overall, we loved the house; listening to the frogs singing in the night and the wind blowing through the upstairs were experiences we don't have at home.
And, seriously, the views!
Thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise with us.
Thanks for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. To help future guests understand, The upper level of the home has floor to ceiling screens on the North wall allowing both the view and the breeze in... This includes the shower. I can understand how one may consider that "outdoors" however the shower is under the same roof as the home and within the same (screened) walls. There is ALSO an outdoor shower near the pool.
