Recent Coral Bay reviews

  • Great Stay

    "We have been to St John at least a dozen times. We like the Coral Bay area as it is less hectic . We usually rent a villa on top of Beaurodeau Mountain for the views and breezes. With that being said we opted for a location on this trip that was a little closer to the water. The villa is a advertised. Being at a lower elevation allowed us to get to Coral Bay and the East End beaches faster. Also the Salt Pond area is easier to get to. But, being at a lower elevation does make it harder to enjoy the inside of the villa due to temperatures. The master bedroom does not really cool down as it has very high ceilings and a louvered door to the great room. Not sure what they were thinking with that. The lower two bedrooms are fine. The great room was usually too warm to sit during the day and it was still hot into the evening. This is not a real problem as there are great areas outside around the pool to relax. I would have given the villa 5 stars but with the issue stated above coupled with a rocky rutted dirt road leading to the villa I had to give it 4. Just be aware that many villas in the Coral Bay area do have dirt roads. Some can be much worse than the one to Secret Seashell. It did get a little old rocking over the pot holes and rocky sections. All in all a great trip."

  • The Hortons

    "Well, another great stay on St.Johns at Villa Mahr. This was our second 2 week stay (we were here about the same time in 2014). We really can't say enough about this home and its owners. The house was in great shape and very comfortable to live in for 2 weeks- clean and well kept. The pool was refreshing and you just never get tired of the beautiful beach's on the island. We hiked to some of the more remote spots on the island this time and experienced some great beach's and views. The view from the porch at the house never gets old. Just an all around great trip. Scott rented us the 4 door pick up truck this trip and that worked out great. The rental has 2 glass bottom 2 man kayaks and they fit on the truck rack. We took them everyday we went to the beach- did some great paddling around the beautiful bays. compliments of the owner. If you are looking for a great place to stay while you enjoy all St johns has to offer - you will not be disappointed with this rental. CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK"

  • Amazing views

    "We stayed at La Dolce Vita April 2016, and had a wonderful time. The location in Coral Bay was great- close to a number of restaurants, as well as many beaches to choose from (Maho, Cinnamon, Salt Pond bays). With a small family (2 adults, 1 small child) we had plenty of room in the house, but spent most of our time outside on the decks. The property was well maintained, had nice amenities (spa, washer/dryer) and was in good shape. Dorothy, the owner, was responsive and available if we needed her. The views from the house were great, and we would definitely go back."

  • 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."
