  • Our most peaceful visit to the island

    "Our 4th visit to St John and our most peaceful visit yet. We stayed in the studio and loved it! Both Russ and Liz were great! A very hard working couple that were always available if we needed them but we never felt they were intruding.As mentioned in other reviews the cottage has everything that you would need. During our stay Russ completed an upgrade to the water storage and supply for the studio ,which worked wonderfully.Although remote, the cottage is a short walk to the bus stop which stops at Salt Pond Bay and then heads back to Cruz Bay. The buses seem more reliable than in past years, and the price is only $1/per person. If you like to hike ,the cottage is close to several of the most popular trails. Beaches are nearby and Coral Bay has plenty of good choices for dining. We found the cottage to be perfect !! We are planning a trip for next year and hopefully will stay at the cottage/studio again."

  • Heaven on Earth

    "What a great vacation we had at Flanders Villa. To start, St. John is just magical. It feels like another world. We loved staying in Coral Bay. First there are glorious views from everywhere! It was clean clean clean. Swimming in the pool and looking out over the ocean was sublime, especially at night. It is much more serene on this side of the island and the trade winds are wonderful and I am surprised to say for much of the stay we did not need to use the A/C in the bedrooms ! The house is designed to have privacy for each guest. The master is on the main floor with an outdoor shower - wonderful. Three bedrooms are on the floor below accessible by only the door from the veranda. Each bedroom was nicely equipped with bath and beach towels. It was great having chairs to take to and from the beach. The villa was near some great hiking trails and we loved to see the donkeys and goats on the road although the goats arose a little too early for me and were quite chatty when they got up! There are restaurants and a market right down the hill - very convenient. The kitchen had a gas stove/oven and all the pots pans and gadgets one would need. We cooked many times. Mark was great and answered any question we had usually within minutes. It was a very beautiful and yet comfortable villa and we felt at home as soon as we walked in. Highly recommended and we will be back!"

  • A little bit of heaven

    "My husband and I started coming to St John in 1998, and have been on island every year since. Once Mahobay Camps closed, it was difficult to find an affordable alternative. Coral Bay Cottage is definitely an upgrade from a Maho tent, and perfect for a peaceful vacation for two! We have come to love Coral Bay and all it offers, including restaurants and easy access to beaches and hiking. Coral Bay Cottage is equipped with everything one needs for comfortable living and meal prep , and we were especially grateful on the 3 rainy days last week to have an airy, dry, beautiful cabin with stunning views high on the hill. We loved snorkeling at Haulover and Leinster, open mic at Concordia, and hiking into Drunk Bay. Melody and Tom are wonderful guides. We’ll be back next year for sure."

  • Our home away from home

    "We first visited the "our villa" 10 years ago for our honeymoon, coming with our two kids (adolescent) and my BFF. 10 years have flown by (and the kids just about grown) and we all came back to celebrate and it felt like we had never left – it felt like our island home. We have only been back to reality 2 days and we constantly are looking back at our pictures and dreaming of being back there -- overlooking the breathtaking view of Coral Bay, hearing the cockadoodle-doo of the roosters and the hee-hawing of the donkeys each morning, and looking up at the crystal clear starry sky every night. It was great (and a money saver) being able to cook our own meals every day, including lunches to take to the beach (the house has dishes and things necessary for cooking as well as many of the minor things like condiments -- we brought additional things with us from home, trying to limit our purchases at the grocery store on St. John to perishables perishables – Starfish Market in Cruz Bay or Love City Market really close to the villa). Since we cooked in for most dinners, we had limited experiences with restaurants, but of course, we went to Skinny Legs, just across from Sea Grape Road, as well as the Tourist Trap (a fun place, like a food truck, on the way back from Lameshur Bay. My BFF and her husband had a good experience at Indigo Grill before we got there. We ran out of time and missed out on Caribbean Oasis which was on our list to try). We loved having beach chairs and towels at our disposal for our daily trips to the various local beaches (our tip -- check the schedule for cruise ships in St. Thomas and save going to Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay for days they are NOT in port - it was great!... Maho Bay is another great one... Waterlemon Bay (via hike) is not as beachy and has great snorkeling, but more of a current to be mindful of; Little Lameshur Bay was also nice and a little secret/privately owned beach on the East End - Hansen Bay that charges a small fee to get in). Having a washing machine and dryer at the house helped immensely, allowing us to pack less, clearing room in our suitcases for the non-perishable food we brought on the way down, and souvenirs and rum to bring home! I'm sure there is so much more I could say, but this is a wonderful place to stay! Charlie and Chris are great to work with and very responsive (and I love how they allowed payment through PayPal!). We hope to book again for our 20th anniversary, if not much sooner!!!"
