BEAS MAISON BREATHTAKING VIEWS, POOL AND SO MUCH MORE

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

ONE BEDROOM ONE BATH

Fall asleep to the sounds of the surf and wake up with the sun rising out of the ocean. Beas Maison is the pefect romantic getaway for one ot two people on the quiet end of St John, 15 minutes from Coral Bay and 3 minutes from Salt Pond Beach and hiking trails of the USVI National Park. There are breathtaking views from the large deck with its sunken pool, outside dining area and every room. The unique Force 10 design and extra insulation keeps this spacious house cool, even on the hottest of days. The villa is extremely well equipped with everything from snorkel gear and guides to sarongs, kitchen spices and table linens to organic soaps and shampoos to hairdryers to BOSE CD players, cd & video library to books and binoculars.

The house and grounds are extremely private and make for a great honeymoon location.

POOL ADDED: Beas Maison is a work in progress. It is improving each and every year.

A sunken pool overlooking Johns Folly Bay is nestled in the deck Also in 2009 the entire interior of the house was plastered in color with 'Guava Jam' for the bed/bath and 'Sunburst' for the great room.

wifi, cable and cell phone reception: We have installed WIFI at Beas Maison, so those guests who feel the need to stay in touch with the web can do so while overlooking the sailboats plying their way among the BVI. In addition, we have cable TV and a roof top antenna and inteior booster to allow for ATT cell phone reception throughout the house and garden.

Privacy is paramount: The house is situated and the grounds planted so as to assure the utmost privacy so that although there are other homes in the area once inside the entry gate from the parking area, one is virtually able to do without clothing.

BEYOND PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
I do not know where to start.

Every detail was planned out in advance by the owners from shampoo to beach gear. Nothing was left out or forgotten. There are books for reference, maps, and information left from previous guests on the things that you may decide to see or things that you didn't know that you wanted to see. Plenty of reference material for your review. Not to mention cookware, dishes, and everything you will need without having to bring it with you or rent from the local vendor.

The house is perfect. Decor was awesome and created a very relaxing atmosphere. There are (if I counted correctly) about 5 different little seating areas about the landscape and decks that each make you feel like you are in a different oasis. The landscape is breathtaking. There is an awesome view from any room in the house. You feel like you are in a secluded paradise. Then there are the sounds of the ocean, the birds and then quiet.

The owners are amazing to work with and are full of great advice. I talked to the several times and felt like I had known them for years. Very nice people and they treat people with the utmost respect.

Can't wait to go back.

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
Beas Maison is an awesome vacation rental. You will love the cleanliness, cool designs, nice, furnishings and all the attention to detail put in by the owners. However, the view really speaks for itself. There are so many outdoor areas to enjoy this view.

I don't know what to add that hasn't been said already, but if you want a really nice rental, on the quiet end of St John, then Beas Maison is a great choice for you. For anyone unfamiliar with St John, it should be noted that it is only 9 miles to Cruz Bay, but the roads are pretty wild, and take a long time to traverse those nine miles. So if you want to get away from the action, Beas Maison definitely fits the bill.

The owners and their caretaker really make sure you are taken care of, and will enjoy your stay. We nearly had a hurricane or tropical storm come, and their caretaker Sharon was fantastic in giving us updates, telling us whether this was something that would warrant evacuation or not, and generally giving us a lot of peace of mind.

One thing to note is that you will want 4WD on your vehicle because the final stretch is a little rocky. Beas Maison is great, the owners are very attentive to their guests, and overall it is a great home with a great location and the perfect platform to build a memorable vacation.

One cool thing to note is that the kitchen is really nice and well equipped to make meals at home. Nice tools, and dishes. A dishwasher is also really nice to have on vacation, and one thing that was unexpectedly awesome was an automatic ice maker so no worrying about having cold beverages.

Last thing...I tend to be restless and unable to sleep if I am hot or the air is to warm or humid. I was a little worried seeing overnight temps of 79 degrees but just like the others have said, the breezes and fans really do a great job at keeping you cool.

OUR INCREDIBLE 10 DAY STAY AT BEAS MAISON

  • 5 of 5
Beas Maison is beautiful, meticulously clean, relaxing, well maintained, quiet, and very peaceful. We had to pull ourselves away from the villa to explore the many wonderful beaches that St. John is blessed with. We went to a different pristine beach every day.

The cool breezes through the house kept it very cool, and we had to pull up the covers at night. We could not believe all the amenities provided - snorkel gear, beach guides, sarongs, organic soaps and shampoos, beach towels and chairs, back pack, ice chest, Bose radio/CD player, and binoculars.

The views from the deck were breathtaking overlooking Johns Folly Bay. We spent a lot of time on the deck relaxing, swimming, eating, and reading. The pool was so inviting after a day at the beach. We looked forward to returning to "our home" every afternoon.

We enjoyed the side patio, the covered backyard garden, and the breezeway. There are so many areas to relax and enjoy the incredible views. Don and Safia's hard work definitely shows, especially with the lush landscaping with palms and flowering plants. They take pride in their home and want it to be enjoyed by their guests.

Watching from the deck overlooking Johns Folly Bay, we thanked Mother Nature for providing glorious sunrises, colorful rainbows, and green hillsides. We had the opportunity to enjoy them all during our stay. The sun slipped up over the horizon like a great orange ball and we knew this was the magnificient start of another gorgeous day on St. John.

Don and Safia were a pleasure to work with and they want to make your stay at Beas Maison comfortable and enjoyable. We are so happy they enjoy sharing their beautiful home with guests, and we are so excited we chose Beas Maison for our vacation on St. John. We loved Coral Bay. The Islanders are the friendliest people in the world.

We highly recommend Beas Maison to anyone considering a visit to St. John. It is a place to relax and forget any and all problems you may have. We look forward to a return visit in the future.

I ALMOST HATE TO POST THIS REVIEW!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week at Beas Maison for our 15th wedding anniversary. It was the most incredible trip we've *ever* taken! The house is everything the owners promise and more. I almost hate to post this review - I'd rather Beas Maison stay a secret! It'd be hard for us to imagine staying anywhere else on a return trip to St. John (and I promise there will be one!) and it'd would have been nice not to have to fight for a reservation!

Beas Maison is very easy to get to but is tucked away south of Coral Bay overlooking Coral Bay and East end. It is quiet, peaceful, and close to some great south shore beaches. We spent a lot of time going to many of the beaches and had several all to ourselves.

The views are simply astounding! I thought the pictures of the view were cherry picked, but the reality puts all of them to shame. It really is that beautiful!

One of my main concerns was the lack of air conditioning. I like a cool house - I set our AC at home to 73. When I asked, Don assured me it was not an issue. I said to myself: "I'm sure they all say that." Let me assure you, Don was telling the truth. We had nice cool breezes through the house the entire week...in August, to boot. It was *hot* outside, but the villa stayed nice and cool.

As to the villa itself and the customer service. We had a few small glitches (internet was out and the cisterns went dry) while we were there. Don and his "on-island caretaker" took care of both problems efficiently. As to the villa itself, it is very roomy and comfortable. It was meticulously clean and had everything you could want: snorkel gear, towels, plenty of places to sit and look out at the Caribbean, soaps, shampoos, pots, pans, dishes, books, grill, etc... If I could make one complaint, it would be the water pressure (or lack thereof) in the shower. It's a *very* minor nitpick and nothing a different shower head couldn't take care of.

The grounds of the villa are remarkable. It is obvious Don and Safia have put a lot of love and care into the landscaping. There are well manicured plants and trees everywhere. In addition, there is a colony of hermit crabs that ate almost anything we dropped over the railing (at the request of Don and Safia), bananaquits that flocked to the sugar we put out and a pretty white kitty that came around looking for handouts.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough...I just hope you all leave it free for us the next time we want to go!

SPECTACULAR

  • 5 of 5
My first reaction when we arrived at Beas Maison was: the photos do not do it justice!!! The ceilings were higher, the new paint job was prettier, the landscaping was lusher, it was more private and larger than I thought...I could go on and on. It was unbelievably gorgeous. It had a washer/dryer, dish washer, EVERYTHING to make it homey and convenient. Even the dishes and kitchen tools were beautiful. On the huge deck was a large dipping pool overlooking the incredible view. There were no less than 4 eating areas in and around the house. The main portion of the house was a great room (living, dining, kitchen), a large bedroom with king bed and a bathroom. There was another bedroom with two twin beds and a bathroom that was separated from the main house by a breezeway. We didn't use this room, but it made the house perfect for a family vacation too.

The back patio smelled divine...jungle, organic, green. I kept saying that I wished I could bottle the smell and take it home.

I cannot recommend Beas Maison highly enough...although I am reluctant to do so in case we can't book there again when we want to return!

A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do it justice. As beautiful as the beaches of St John are, it is difficult to motivate yourself to leave the deck of Beas Maison. In the shade, in the sun, in the pool the view is wonderful and soothes the soul. All you need is a t-shirt and a bathing suit: they have provided everything else but provisions and transportation. Two minutes to some of the best snorkeling in the VI at Salt Pond and just a few minutes to the restaurants and shops of Coral Bay. We hope we get a chance to return soon.

Besides just lounging on the teak deck furniture, one can follow bird & marine life in John's Folly Bay, just below the house or try to keep track of the ever changing vista of boats on the waters plying among the Leeward Islands. Hiking trails abound close by, including the well known hike to Ram's Head, a spectacular promontory. Salt Pond Beach is a favorite for islanders and vacationers alike, for swimming, snorkeling or just soaking up the rays. Lameshur Beach just down the road is a favorite among the locals. After a day of hiking or swimming, a brief respite in the pool followed by a trip to one of several nearby restaurants, ranging from upscale fine cuisine through family style to bar / snack / deli type food is all available between the house and nearby Coral Bay, as are shops for clothing, souvenirs, supplies, boat and kayak rentals, etc.

Other Activities: bird fish and sea life & marine craft watching
