  • Picture Perfect Views!

    "We had a great time of rest and relaxation at Island Dreams on St John. The views from the decks are as stunning as they appear in the pictures. It was always very breezy when sitting on the deck facing Coral Bay, but in the heat of the day, it was welcomed. The kitchen was great and we chose to eat out only a handful of times during our stay as we enjoyed using the well stocked kitchen and grill outside. We found a nice little grocery store just 5 minutes away in Coral Bay - Dolphin Grocery Store. Once we got accustomed to the island pricing, we pretty much found all we needed and more at that store. In my opinion, the jeep is a must, unless you are already used to the roads in St John. Having the private pool was great to cool off after a hike or sitting in the sun. The hosts provide beach chairs, coolers and a great selection of paperback books to use for your beach trips, which we found very useful. Although we came to relax and unplug, it was nice to have good internet connection to check in occasionally and take care of business when necessary. Would definitely recommend this property to any couple looking for a quiet beach vacation."

  • A slice of heaven!

    "This was our 5th visit to Rhumb Runners. How do you describe paradise? When we arrive I take a deep breath and remind myself how lucky we are to have found this beautiful, perfect, location and house to stay in. Coral Bay overall is a wonderful spot, close to less crowded beaches, convenient food store and great selection of restaurants. The house was lovely the first time we saw it many years ago, but Mike and Cris continue to put in improvements over the years, new kitchen, flat screen TV, original artwork, new chairs, the list goes on. They added some great beach chairs, easy to sling on your back and hike with. We used the grill on the deck and the kitchen to cook some great meals. Of course the views are priceless. I saw another review that mentioned a steep drive up. I've been to several other houses, and this is one of the easiest to get to with this kind of view. My sister was staying in another house about the same height but the view was more hills, less water. In addition to the beautiful views this is a very private location. Loved going to the beaches early, the snorkeling was great, turtles, rays, all kinds of fish, but is was wonderful to relax at the house in the afternoon. Our 23 year old son loved it as well, we were a little worried he would get bored with his parents but we all agreed it was a fabulous trip. Can't wait to go back, I wouldn't dream of staying in another house!!!"

  • What a view!

    "This was our 4th trip to the island and we try to be as budget conscious as possible when we travel. Previously, we had stayed at Cinnamon Bay cabins and at Concordia, which are both great for different reasons. The Blue Wrasse checked all our boxes for quality, comfort and affordability! We traveled with our 2 adult children and the space worked out well. Our daughter stayed in the Loft and our son stayed on the futon. The downstairs bedroom is private, having a separate entrance from the upstairs area. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal (we did). The grill on the deck is great and did I mention the view? Awesome! I was a little concerned with heat, given the time of the year, but the ac worked great! It was a pleasure working with John and the on-island support staff. Excellent communication! Yes, there are a lot of stairs, so don't be surprised when you get there. Remember, you're on island time, so take your time and enjoy the beautiful the flowers and tropical experience as you climb your way to the parking area. We are already looking forward to a return trip! Thank you 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."
