This private, roomy villa offers Coral Bay at its finest. Five decks for sun, shade, breezes, peaceful gardens and lounging at pool side any time. Handmade ceramic tile and wood floors, original local art, surround stereo and tropical furniture fabric make this a Caribbean dream. The north shore beaches are only a five minute drive away. Master bedroom has air conditioner.
We've only been home less than 12 hours. When I woke up this morning I was not looking to the sunrise over the beautiful gardens and enjoying the pleasant breezes but instead looking out at snow and cool wind. What a difference a day makes.
DeBolina was a perfect home-away-from-home for us. We have been to the island several times and stayed in four other properties. DeBolina is our favorite, hands down, and it will be our number one choice when we return. We prefer the Coral Bay end of the island and DeBolina gives us easy access to Coral Bay but yet it is just a short drop down on the north side to our favorite beaches. And jumping over to Cruz Bay is easy from the house. The home is well cared for, spacious and inviting. If it was too breezy on the front deck we could easily find another deck area to enjoy. The bedrooms have more than adequate space and storage, plenty of light and windows for island breezes, and comfortable bedding. With five bathrooms it was easy to feel you had privacy and they provide LOTS of towels. We always had sufficient water and plenty of hot water for showers. (For those who have never been to St. John in the winter, water availability can be a problem in some rentals.) The kitchen has absolutely everything you need for cooking and serving. We really appreciated the icemaker in the fridge for all those tropical drinks!
From the easy reservation process, good care-taking of our many questions prior to arrival and responsiveness during our stay we couldn't have asked for better property managers. Karen, Kay and staff took great care of us, even helping us out in an emergency with our car.
