  • Surf Sound Cottage is Idyllic

    "We just spent a week at Surf Sound Cottage and found it to be idyllic. The cottage sits up on a hill overlooking John's Folly Bay, near the southeastern tip of St. John and is 10 minutes or so south of Coral Bay. It is a very quiet location and area, and there is a fantastic view from the porch of Norman and Peter Islands and of the beautiful sunrise each morning. The great beach at Saltpond Bay is just a few minutes away, where there is good snorkeling (we saw turtles there) and a really good hike out to Ram's Head. It is also close to good snorkeling at the Lameshure Bays (especially the western part of Great Lameshure Bay) and at Kiddel Bay, which has some of the best coral (on the western side) we have seen in this part of the Caribbean in many years (it's a bit challenging to find and get to, but worth it; plug Kiddel Bay into Google Map) . It's only a twenty- to thirty-minute drive to the North Shore beaches, which are spectacular. There are good restaurants in Coral Bay, so we found no need to do the 30-minute drive to Cruz Bay, which is much more crowded than the Coral Bay area. Good National Park hiking trails are also nearby, but we didn't get the chance to try them because we spent all our time snorkeling. The owners are extremely hospitable, helpful and responsive. And they have provided everything you could possibly need for your stay in the cottage. This is a fantastic place, and we would definitely return. One cautionary note: you will definitely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get up the driveway (as the owners' information piece will advise), and it is a challenge to negotiate the driveway because it is steep and takes a sharp turn half-way up. but we were able to deal with it without incident."

  • Perfect Honeymoon Escape!

    "My new husband and I just came back from the most amazing week at Alice-by-the-sea. It is a week we will remember for the rest of our lives as a truly spectacular way to start our marriage! The house was so private and made us feel like we had the entire island to ourselves when we were up on the deck looking out over the bay. We loved waking up to watch the sunrise every morning, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the deck, grilling dinner under the stars, reading our books out on the porch, etc. etc. etc. We hardly ever wanted to leave the house, and had to tear ourselves away to go explore the island! We loved Coral Bay so much that we never even went back over to Cruz Bay the entire week we were there. We enjoyed casual meals at Concordia, Skinny Legs, and Aqua Bistro, and also had fun picking out groceries as the Callabash Market to cook dinner at home many nights, as well. Our favorite beaches and hikes were probably the ones out of Lameshur Bay and Leminster Bay, but we truly loved everywhere we went and explored! Lori has thought of everything - the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and we loved throwing the beach bag and towels and beach chairs (all provided!) into the back of our jeep when we headed out the door for an adventure. I couldn't possibly recommend Alice more, whether it's for a romantic getaway or an entire family looking for a fun adventure. I'm tempted to tell people NOT to go just so that it will be more readily available for us to come back more easily! :) But I couldn't do that and risk not sharing this beautiful place with more people. It's perfect! We definitely look forward to coming back in the future to celebrate our anniversary and to bring family with us!"

  • A great Caribbean Escape

    "I've been fortunate enough to stay at Spyglass Hill on two different occasions. Our last trip down this October was fantastic. Although it was technically hurricane season (and Hurricane Matthew was battering our home coast), the weather in St. John was perfect. From our home base at Spyglass Hill, five of us (all in our 30s) set out to see all STJ had to offer. Trunk Bay, Cinnamon, Jumbie Beach, East End, Salt Pond, Cruz Bay, Francis, Maho-- all within easy driving distance. After each day at the beach, Spyglass Hill welcomed us back home-- a kitchen well suited to host a family meal, a porch with amazing views of the East End and BVIs, and plenty of space. My only suggestion would be to add wall-unit air conditioning to the bedrooms-- or maybe some more oscillating fans-- at night it was a little warm in the bedrooms. Otherwise, it was the perfect getaway."

  • Awesome stay!

    "Just got back from a quick but incredible trip to St. John. Aerie is truly wonderful property and is a perfect fit for couples wanting an intimate getaway. Bruce the property manager was amazing and met us at the ferry, guided us to the grocery store and then to the house. He also made some great recommendations around the island! The property itself is ideally located to coral bay and the north beaches. Cruz bay was an easy drive as well at about 20 minutes. The property was very clean and well decorated with unique items and has everything you could possibly need. Before we went I was initially worried about the view from the house but I was not disappointed. No it is not waterfront but not many properties in St John are! The view and setting are just amazing from the both the deck and pool area. The sunset views are also ideal this time of year. Do make sure you rent a proper vehicle as the road is quite steep and somewhat rocky at times but the journey is well worth it! We had a wonderful time and were so happy with our choice. Bruce the property manager was also a huge help, he actually took the time to help us with a flat tire one day! Please consider staying at this wonderful property. Cheers!"
