  • Luminaria is amazing!

    "Our family group of seven adults and a 3-moth old baby stayed at Luminaria for two weeks. It was a wonderful experience. First, the house is beautiful--well laid out and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped ( a good thing, because with a baby, we did not eat out). We were even able to watch a little of the NCAA basketball tournament! The living area is very spacious, and gave us plenty of room to watch basketball, read a book, take a nap, or sit in the sun, without getting in each other's way. The pool was lovely, especially for those who had to stay home with the baby while the rest of the group went snorkeling. The driveway is very steep--even with dry weather, you will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle. But that was a worthwhile trade-off to get the amazing views. I can't imagine that many places have views over both Coral Bay and the Drake Passage. We enjoyed watching the boats in the Passage and the sailboats in Coral Bay. The Viva Villa team was great, supplying us with a first-rate greeter (Magabe) and responding quickly to our complaint of the downstairs bathroom drains clogging. The downside of being on top of a mountain is that you have to drive to go anywhere. But we managed to snorkel at least once a day, and even took the baby with us a couple of times. Plenty of shade at Trunk Bay (but get there early), Maho Bay and Francis Bay. We also enjoyed our snorkel-sunset sail with Virgin Magic Charters. We'd come back in a heartbeat if St. John were a little easier to get to."

  • 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."

    "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."

  • 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."
