This property is extremely well maintained. Simple but beautiful. We really enjoyed staying here. It is very well equipped with everything you need. Jones and Marjorie are great hosts. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to St. John. Also, gorgeous views of the islands to the east and sunset to the west. Very private and relaxing. We loved it.
Lets just get the whole view thing out of the way first. The view from Coconut Hill Cottage is absolutely spectacular. We spent 5 days there and it never ceased to completely engage us, its beautiful. We also loved the continuity of the large screened porch with the living room/kitchen. This top section of the house is very comfortable and inviting and a great place to hang out. And bug free. Its the tropics, but mosquitoes and bugs were never an issue. Even outside we rarely even noticed mosquitoes. The master and guest bedroom and two bathrooms are on the bottom floor. The master is very comfortable, we didn't use the guest room, and the AC in the master worked well and was good to have, but the ground floor is more about bedrooms/bathrooms than a place to hang out. Its worth noting that the top and bottom floors are connected by an exterior stairway, so if its raining you'll get wet. The provision of beach chairs, cooler and beach umbrella was much appreciated and used. The property manager Gwen was very helpful and made sure we were all set up when we arrived. Communication with the owner Jake was very prompt and helpful prior to our trip, and it turned out he was visiting the island during our trip and we really enjoyed meeting him. This was our first stay in the east end of the island and really enjoyed the location, the cottage is close to Coral Bay making it easy to get to restaurants/provisions/etc. It was great to be back in St John and see the recovery, and Coconut Hill cottage was a great find.
