Recent Coral Bay reviews

  • Hard to leave

    "Just back from a stay at Stone Harbor Cottage to celebrate my wife's birthday. We picked a fantastic location. Wonderful private feel but just a short stroll to the heart of Coral Bay. Amazing sunrise each morning as we drank coffee and decided which beach to relax on for the day. We have always stayed in the "big city", Cruz Bay. After many day trips to this side of the island we took the plunge. It is not our last and we are already looking at the calendar for next year, back to Coral Bay, and back to Stone Harbor."

  • A gem!

    "We just returned from our most favorite family vacation to date. Periwinkle Cottage was perfectly suited to our family of four. We loved the indoor outdoor living and the views from every room. It was even more beautiful than we had expected from the pictures and very clean. The ceilings were higher than we thought, and there was such an open and airy feel. We didn't even turn on the A/C due to the breezes and fans that also kept mosquitoes at bay. Having reusable containers and coolers already at the house enabled us to pack lunches for the beach. There were also four beach chairs that came in very handy. We rented snorkel gear from Crabby's near the Coral Bay Dolphin Market which is a very close to the cottage. Periwinkle Cottage is an absolute gem! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family, and we hope to return to it someday."

  • Awesome stay in Coral Bay

    "We had such a lovely time on the Coral Bay side of the island and Starlit Escape was the perfect little home for the week. We really enjoyed the laid back feel and it had all the amenities we needed. We're dreading going back to the hustle and bustle of home. Thanks for an awesome villa Jared and Angie!"

  • 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."
