I can't say enough positive things about the Pearl Guest House. First of all, St. John is my husband and my favorite vacation destination. If we need a break, we try to head to St. John. We always rent a Jeep and have toured the island enough to feel like seasoned visitors with personal knowledge of the best spots, etc. We've stayed at five different places including "luxury" abodes such as the Gibney villas and the Peter Bay Gatehouse. The Pearl Guest House was by far our favorite for multiple reasons. First, the view is beyond incredible. There is literally an ocean view from every room in the house (even the bathrooms!) Ibro and Karen have done a stunning job with the interior. The living area has vaulted ceilings, a lot of light, morning sun on the patio, and a lovely overall feel. The bottom level houses the bedrooms which we found very comfortable with an oversized bathroom and washer/dryer. One nice surprise was how convenient the guest house was to town for groceries, restaurants, etc. It's also centrally located to the road to Coral Bay, so we found it to be so easy to get wherever we were heading. I also have to say how professionally yet friendly the hosts treated us. They were on hand to help, but not intrusive. We just loved our experience there and wouldn't hesitate to return.
