  • Great location! Spectacular view! And very cool house!

    "We only stayed 3 nights, but would definitely recommend this as a great location to spend any length stay on St. John. Nina lives right there next door and she designed this very cool West Indies style bungalow. The house was very clean and with nice detail going into the design and décor. There was also access to snorkel and beach chairs which we put to good use, as well as kayaks down by the small beach below the house which we didn't get time to use in the adjacent cove. Located near Coral bay, this house is on the quiet side of the island, but there are a few dining options ranging in price, with our favorite being Skinny Legs for the beach bar style atmosphere and burgers, plus there are small groceries on that side. Make sure to stock up on bottled water for drinking, as with many Virgin Island properties, the tap water is via rain cisterns. Access to the amazing north shore beaches is convenient, with Maho, Cinnamon, and Trunk (get there early to park) all providing great views, calm clear water, and amazing snorkeling. It's about 30 minutes to Cruz Bay where the ferries dock, along with the plenty of shopping, dining, and car rentals."

  • Goats and chickens and donkeys, oh my!

    "Stayed here for 12 days in September with 2 daughters. Great location just a few minutes from groceries and dining in Coral Bay and convenient to all the best beaches. East facing slope so we got to enjoy the sun & moon rises. We loved the pool and hot tub. Hung out on the screened porch and enjoyed the hammock. Nice breezes and no need for A/C. The outside grill was nice. Wi-Fi worked great. Books were a plus. Beds were comfy. Drank the tap water with no ill effects :) Privacy was great (except for one unannounced visit for pool maintenance). Kept doors unlocked and felt safe. The last .2 miles to the villa was a bit bumpy, but we got used to that :) Of the 4 places I've stayed on St John this was the best deal."

  • 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."

  • 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."
