SHORT BUT OH SO SWEET

  • 5 of 5
Rhumb Runners and Chris and Mike Jordan, are amazing. We traveled from cold and snowy Maine with another couple for a week in St. John in February. Our flights were cancelled and the only re-booking we could get caused our week in St. John to be shortened to 3 days. Though we were bummed and frustrated, the moment our feet hit the ground in St. Thomas, Mike made us feel like all was not lost. He went out of his way to meet us at the airport and give us a Rhumb Runner attitude adjustment with his home made, secret recipe rhumb runner cocktails. He saved us time and gave us a warm island welcome by driving us to the ferry and arranging for us to connect with Chris once on the St. John side. She led us to the house in Coral Bay and our wonderful but too short vacation started. Rhumb Runner is a very clean and lovely little house perched on the edge of one of the many mountainsides on St. John. The view from the house is beautiful as you look across the bay to the "town" of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is the place to be if you want to be away from it all. There isn't much for night life or shopping in Coral Bay and that was fine with us. Cruz Bay, about 1/2 an hour by car (though only 8 miles away) is the main town on St. John That's where the ferry lands and where there are restaurants, bars, and shops for the tourist to enjoy. Coral Bay, is quiet, has a couple of grocery stores and restaurants and a little "mall" with t-shirts and other touristy purchase. But, not much night life. This was perfect for us and we were there to see the beaches, snorkel, and enjoy the warmth and sun. Rhumb Runner, is a great place to stay for that kind of vacation. The house is well maintained and a great home base. We didn't spend much time in the house or use the pool there at all. We preferred the beaches and warm ocean water (warmer then the pool). We recommend snorkeling at Maho Bay and Waterlemon Cay. We like the Beach Bar in Cruz bay for a nice afternoon drink or three! The grocery store that we wished we hit on day one was in Cruz Bay, Starfish Market & Gourmet. Don't waste your time getting groceries in Coral Bay. The kitchen at Rhumb Runner is sparingly stocked with cooking utensils, but there is a gas grill that worked well. We hope to return to St. John for a full week and will definitely stay at Rhumb Runner with Mike and Chris Jordan again. Thank you Mike and Chris for your work at making our short stay worth the trip.

AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from this lovely home after spending a week there with another couple. The pictures do not lie. It is hands down one of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen. The view from the deck is breathtaking. We enjoyed the house very much and didn't mind doing our part conserving the precious commodity of water and electricity on the island. Our day consisted of coffee on the deck enjoying the view and the birds, a light breakfast and out the door by 9:00 to explore one of the many snorkeling spots. We saw the most amazing fish, everything from cuttle fish to barracuda to rays. Our favorite spots were the salt ponds and Francis bay. We usually grabbed a midday meal around 3:00 and then headed back to the house for a nap, quick shower, drinks and cards. Each evening between 8:00 and 9:30 a neighbor would play taps on a bugle. So very unique and entertaining. Our favorite places to eat we're miss Lucy's, the tourist trap (make sure you go on Tuesday or Wednesday so you can experience the server, Mary) and skinny legs. As for driving, make sure you get a four wheel drive jeep. That's what we had and didn't have any problems on the steep switchbacks. The owners Michael and Chris are lovely hosts. Chris greeted us upon arrival in Coral Bay and we met Michael later in the week. They are a wonderful couple with interesting stories who truly cared about us having a good time. Everything about our week was amazing..the location..the food..the weather..the house.. Upon leaving Michael suggested we catch the ferry to Charlotte Amalie instead of Red Hook which was a great idea. We got to spend a little more time on the ferry out in the beautiful weather rather than the taxi/van and grab a delicious lunch in Charlotte Amalie at The Green House and then catch a quick cab ride to the airport. If you prefer a more relaxing quiet spot, choose Coral Bay and Rhumb Runners over Cruz Bay. Thanks again Mike and Chris. If we get back to St John, we would love to stay with you again!

FUN TIME IN CORAL BAY

  • 5 of 5
Rhumb Runners proved to be an affordable rental for 2 couples. Leasing arrangements were handled by the owners, Mike and Chris, who always returned email inquiries. The house itself affords fantastic views of the harbor, especially from the awesome covered porch with very comfortable resin chairs where we sat having our coffees in the morning and wrapped up the evening with glasses of wine. We found the rattan furniture in the living room to be a bit uncomfortable. The beds were on the soft side, but we slept well every night, enjoying the lovely breezes. There is a small but refreshing pool alongside the house offering privacy...in fact, the location of the house is extremely private. I might suggest some extra towels, both bath and beach, be supplied for future tenants. Appliances were in very good working order. A cooler and beach chairs and towels are provided. Good dining options in the East End, and in close proximity to great beaches. A 4WD is necessary to access Rhumb Runners on a steep but fairly well-paved road. We hope to return to Rhumb Runners as we truly relaxed and enjoyed life for an all-too-short week. Thanks, Chris and Mike!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. A couple of comments; we have opted to have our beds on the softer side as the vast majority of our guests prefer a softer bed to a harder bed, the beds are high quality Serta perfect sleeper beds; rattan furniture is used in the tropics as it is less likely to become moldy, we think that what you experienced was the new upholstery and bunting that was used. Our policy, as is the majority of the the other Villas on the island, is to provide a complete set of towels, including beach towels for the weeks stay. There are laundry facilities at the Villa should one of our guests need to wash anything, however because of the severe water restrictions on the island we ask our guests to be conservative in their water needs.

We hope that you appreciated the little touches like the fresh cut flowers, the wide assortment of house plants, the special books on island life and the general appearance of the Villa. We personally, during High Season, do all of our own cleaning,greetings and orientation to the Villa to assure that our guests have a wonderful experience. We are available 24/7 should any of our guests need anything. In addition, we can also offer advice ranging from what restaurant to go to to and have even helped out with medical issues as Chris is a nurse at the urgent care clinic on the island.

We want all of our guests staying with us to feel that Rhumb Runners is their home away from home and we are dedicated to that end.
Thanks again for staying with us and your suggestions, the Jordans

PERFECT VILLA IN CORAL BAY WITH A WONDERFUL VIEW AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
The villa has a beautiful large deck with beautiful beautiful views of Coral Bay and the area islands. We loved it because you can get both sun and shade. The pool is a nice, private place to cool off. The beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need for your stay. It's quiet, private and a short drive down the road to bars, restaurants, groceries, shopping and the rental shop for water activities. We are definitely staying at Rhum Runners when we're in St. John!

THE BEST VIEW EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best week at Rhumb Runners! The whole family had a blast, especially our daughters(ages 19 and 22). Everyday we would take our jeep and go to a different beach to snorkel but at the end of the day we couldn't wait to return to our house with the best view ever! Chris and Mike were so helpful and we couldn't have had better host's. The location is great and the view is absolutely spectacular. We will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

PERFECT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
If you can brave a rather steep drive up the hillside, Rhumb Runners is the perfect place to stay on St. John! The view from the porch is incomparable, and can be enjoyed under a starlit sky, or at the break of dawn. The house is clean, comfortable, and spacious, and offers a delightful cross breeze at any time of day. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and each bedroom has beautifully tiled bathrooms. There are plenty of great places to explore on the East side of the island, and plenty of great (and fun) places to eat! This was the second time our family stayed at Rhumb Runners, and we can't wait to get back!
