  • Absolute perfection!

    "This was our second time staying at Estate Fortsberg and certainly will not be our last. From the moment you arrive, the drive up to the villa is exciting and adventurous! Upon walking in the front door, you start to understand what is going to make your stay exceptional.....the amazing view CANNOT be matched ANYWHERE on the island! The pool/spa is welcoming and encourages everyone to gather and share stories of the day, have great conversations while relaxing or dining al fresco! Cool breezes run through the main house and after a few minutes being there, you realize you may never leave and explore the rest of the island! We had a party of 8 and were all comfortable in each bedroom, in the downstairs hammock or outdoor living area. The outdoor showers are one of my favorite things about the house.. The kitchen was perfect to cook in as you never felt like you were missing out on enjoying the view, because even being behind the stove gives you the best view! The house has all amenities you could want or need. Every morning we would have coffee on the terrace and plan our day which would include a hike, beach, snorkel and lunch at a local restaurant. A few of our favorites are Aqua Bistro, Skinny Legs, Shipwreck and Indigo Grill. The local grocery store next to Aqua Bistro has EVERYTHING you could want or need as well. No need to go far if you run out of something. We would always head back to the villa around 3-4 pm and wonder why we ever left that morning, because it just doesn't get any better than a little music, a cocktail and a swim in the pool overlooking the blue water dotted with sailboats heading in or out of Coral Bay. Sunrise and sunsets are amazing and are worth waking up early for. Star gazing is taken to a new level here, as there are no lights to compete with and you can get a great view of constellations and shooting stars. I could go on and on about this property. Thank you to the owner for sharing this place with the world! Windspree took exceptional care of us from beginning to end, from our initial correspondence, greeting us at the ferry and grocery delivery on our arrival night. We'll be back very soon!"

  • Beautiful and airy

    "We had a great week on St John, largely thanks to this vrbo find. We loved so much about the space--the airy interior, comfy bed, substantial deck with delightful view, and outdoor shower. Tradewinds and fans provided ample cooling, and we enjoyed hearing the crickets at night. Great location, nestled in the hills yet close to restaurants and grocery stores. Sandy's hospitality made us feel right at home--thanks! The home was clean and kitchen well appointed. Wifi and stereo for ipod worked well. I was happy to have a break from a tv. One small word of caution: the driveway up to the home is barely drivable. Luckily, we rented a 4WD drive--the only way to navigate the rocks and cement gullies--but the mile-long road always felt much, much longer. If I could give 4.5 stars, I would (simply because of the difficult driveway). Overall, we absolutely loved the house and our stay on St John. Thanks!"

  • We had a fantastic time on St. Johns and La Dolce Vita is the place to stay!

    "We had a fantastic time on St. Johns and La Dolce Vita is the place to stay! A few points about our (Two couples) trip: 1. La Dolce Vita: a. Accommodations: Dorothy and Fernando have a fantastic house. The accommodations are first class! We felt like we were at our personal resort! The house is exceptionally well kept and functional. There was nothing we ‘wished’ we had. Everything was there and Fernando was only a text away and very responsive to any questions or requests. b. Location: being on the east side is great. La Dolce Vita is ideally placed on the west side of Coral Bay (east side of the island). We were minutes from eating, groceries and several terrific beaches. There are several wonderful restaurants on the east side. Two of our top eateries are minutes from La Dolce Vita. We met several people who traveled from the Cruz Bay side to eat on the Coral Bay side. Being on the west side of Coral Bay is a key advantage. c. Amenities: The La Dolce Vita has everything you need. Both kitchens are well equipped; A/C where you need it. The breeze is constant on any deck (we spent equal times on the 2nd and 3rd floor decks. Outdoor shower (hot and cold water) for rinsing off. The deck near the water makes being ‘on the water’ an easy experience. Snorkeling off the deck is an adventure! Beach chairs are available and work great! d. View: The views are incredible. The pictures on HomeAway only start to portray the beauty. We enjoyed the views and breeze every evening on the deck at La Dolce Vita after a day at the beach. 2. Our trip to St. John: This was our first trip to St. John but it won’t be our last. The island is beautiful and the roads are good. Islanders make you feel very welcome and are very hospitable. a. Coral Bay (The country side): La Dolce Vita is on the Coral Bay (east) side. We didn’t really appreciate this until we arrived. We will always stay on the east side. Cruz Bay (west side) is great but we only wanted to visit as it’s much more occupied and not as laid back as Coral Bay. b. Driving: driving on the left side of the road. Didn’t take too much to get used to this and again found islanders patient with tourists. We went to the west side 4 days out of our 7 day trip for groceries and lunch. The west side was more convenient to the beaches we went to on the north side (Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay, Francis Bay) We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next visit!"

  • Excellent location for a real get away!

    "Although, the title "Walk to Water " is misleading, we absolutely loved Island Cottage. Coral Bay is a great place to stay on Saint John, and the cottage had everything we needed. Loved the outside shower, the hot tub, the beautiful view of the bay. The double bed took some getting used to, (we have a king) but otherwise. fabulous vacation! Place was clean and pretty well stocked with items left in the cupboard from other guests.And Pebbles the neighbor dog, was a darling."
