  • Ultimate relaxation at the Greenhouse Villa

    "We had a perfectly relaxing stay. The house is quiet, beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Finishes and details are pretty, eco-friendly, and easy to live with. The ceiling fans made for perfect comfort. We never needed to turn on the AC. The house sits atop a hillside, looking down on Coral Bay and the sea and islands beyond. We enjoyed being near Coral Bay instead of Cruz Bay, as it is less congested and built-up. Coral Bay does have more than enough places to eat (don't miss Concordia, Miss Lucy's, or Aqua Bistro) and things to do, and even a good-sized grocery store right across the street from the bay. It was easy to hop into our rental jeep and get to every beach or trailhead, or other places, for the day's activities. We focused on snorkeling, and within a week hit pretty much every bay or beach on the southeast and north sides of St. John, as well as enjoying some remote snorkeling by taking a boat out with http://www.islandrootscharters.com/. (Alesia helped line up that half-day trip for us.) Evenings on the lanai, sipping "Bones" rum on the rocks, was our idea of a mellow wrap for most days."

  • FIVE WEEKS IN PARADISE

    "We just returned from a 5 week stay, our 21st Caribbean Island, our 4th VBRO. This trip ranks at the top of our list of favorites. Others have done so well describing the Villa; let me touch on some other things that might prove valuable. The Blue Palm in Coral Bay is a perfect location; far enough from busy Cruz Bay but an easy drive to all of the beaches. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Just the mention of a minor issue resulted in a maintenance man the next day. From our experience, the Villa is a good value. If staying more than a week, be sure and consider Woody’s suggestions for cost savings. The option of adding on bedrooms on an as needed basis was great. The island is fantastic, a little busier than some we’ve visited but not overly so. If you like beaches, this is for you. They don’t get any better. There is also a good selection of snorkeling options. Do buy the book “St. John Off the Beaten Track by G. Singer” in advance of your trip. It’s a wealth of information. Get going by 9:30 AM or opt for a later start at 2:30 PM when some beach visitors are leaving. Parking and the selection of a beach spot requires some planning. Go on line and check the Cruise ship days and the swell (surf) report. Avoid the north shore beaches on Cruise Day, although Francis is a less visited option. If the swell is high, pick another day for Trunk or Cinnamon Bay. Do take the time to explore one or two of the plantation ruins. It will give you a real sense of the Island history. The small grocery stores in Coral Bay have a good selection of what you will find on Mainland US. Prices are high but then, everything made a long voyage! Coral Bay has a few nice restaurants, no need to go all the way to Cruz with impossible parking. The Aqua Bistro was a great place for dinner. There are nightly specials like All You Can Eat Lobster and Prime Rib Night. We had four dinners, all were excellent. Pickles isn’t fancy but has a good breakfast, serves great coffee and has fresh cold cuts and salads. At Indigo, dishes were a bit spicy for our liking but that’s personal. The made to order pizza was very good. Miss Lucy’s offered a nice lunch right on the water’s edge. Past the Love City Grocery store is a garden/landscaping center, ask for their fresh greens and vegetables. They supply many of the Island restaurants. Yesterday was the first day of Spring but we have foot of snow yet to melt. Five weeks was obviously not long enough."

  • Another wonderful week in Coral Bay!

    "We come to St John, specifically Coral Bay, annually. Bambooshay was perfect for our needs! Tom , the property manager, is wonderful - kind, fun, and responsive! The villa was very clean and 100% met our needs. I would highly recommend. Private and well stocked with the essentials while still being close to our favorite South and North Shore beaches and all the conveniences of Coral Bay."
