  • It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

    "We vacation on St. John as often as possible, normally once a year. This year we were fortunate enough to visit a second time with a group of friends. We selected Villa Carolina for it's view and location. What a fantastic home! It was the perfect size for our group of 7. The outdoor pool deck was the nicest outdoor area we've had at any of the villas we've stayed at to date. From the infinity pool to the comfy deck furniture, we spent a great deal of time soaking up the view, eating meals, drinking coffee and enjoying a late night glass of wine I can't think of a time that we were more relaxed, laughed a ton and truly enjoyed this special place. The three bedrooms are fairly equal with nice furniture and comfy beds. Plenty of drawers and closet space (although I packed really light this trip). The kitchen had just about everything you could want to cook great meals and even though there is a lovely dining room table, we ate all meals around the table and chairs on the pool deck. The living room had a couch, chairs, TV, sound system but we seldom sat in here and only turned on the TV once throughout the week. It was great to have a washer and dryer throughout the week as it allowed me to minimize the amount of clothing I brought along on this visit. While there is a villa slightly up hill to the right, we never heard nor saw anyone all week. Villa Carolina gives you a secluded feeling, yet you are close to all the Coral Bay restaurants and the north shore beaches. For us, Villa Carolina sits in a perfect spot! Sharon, the owner, was a delight to work with and I already know we'll be back to Villa Carolina for another visit. In fact, I wish I was still there. Thanks to Sharon for sharing her beautiful home with us."

  • Mill Ridge - Coral Bay, St. John USVI

    "This is a beautiful 2 bedroom home over looking Coral Bay. The woodwork and tile floors looked brand new. The appliances also looked either new or in great condition. Our 17 yr old grand-daughter said she wanted the master suite quite simply because of the almost outside shower. Not exactly outside but it certainly felt that way. The plunge pool was a most welcome sight every afternoon and evening after the beach outings. While some may question the rather steep and bumpy drive drive to the villa from the main road, we looked forward to the ascent and descent every single time. The wildlife was a bonus. The symphony of roosters, doves, banaquits, sheep and donkeys every morning around 5:15 was a wake up call that we will never forget (I mean that in a very good way). While the donkey neighing at 2:44 one morning rather scared the crap out of me, everyone laughed and thought that was the coolest thing ever. Only to be outdone by 5 more donkeys showing up two hours later to check us out. The location was 10-15 minutes from the North shore beaches and about the same amount of time to some fantastic restaurants in Coral Bay and other beaches on the South side of St. John. The only thing I would wish for is more bedrooms so that I could take more of our grand children with us. We will always be thankful to Hilarie for meeting us at the ferry dock, driving us to pick up our Jeep rental, having us follow her to the grocery store then to her Mill Ridge home."

  • 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."

  • 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."
