Coral Bay Outlook is a lovely, hillside villa overlooking one of St John’s most spectacular harbors with views of the British Virgin Islands on the horizon. Our house is fully equipped for gourmet cooking, and outdoor grilling. We are close to many activities but private and quiet if you just want to relax on one of our decks. You can rent the whole house with 3 bedrooms or - you can chose just the Main Level (sleeps 5 comfortably in 2 large bedrooms) or the very affordable Garden Level (sleeps 2).
We are within walking distance of the village of Coral Bay - with restaurants, shopping and kayaking available - and just a short drive to seven of the best beaches on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner
How do you begin to summarize a week in Paradise? What an enormously special place, and what an honor to be able to spend some time here. The house is magnificent; well equipped throughout and the location and view are wonderful. It is a fabulous place to call home for ten days. The nearly constant tradewinds gave it a sense of timelessness, and the feathered residents of the area added more local color: bananaquits, frigate birds, thrushes, pelicans, and even some species that travel all the way to New England. Then there are the hikes in to some undisturbed beaches and the coral reefs teaming with beauty and diversity. Hard to describe the experience in words....So much to explore here, and even in ten days I feel we just scratched the surface. I'm sure we will be back.
We live in Salem, Massachusetts just north of Boston but we try to escape to St John as often as we can. We still work full time but we usually made it to the island once every 4 to 6 weeks especially during the winter. I direct a non-profit organization that works to build trails and educate people about the environment and our heritage. Andy is a research scientist at MIT. We love the water - especially sailing, beaching and snorkeling. St John is a perfect place for these activities.
We discovered the US Virgin Islands while sailing around the Caribbean and fell in love with the natural beauty, uncrowded beaches and fantastic swimming and snorkeling in St John. We chose to buy in Coral Bay (the east side of the island) because it is less developed and has the friendly feel and relaxing pace of the 'old' St John. Also, it is fun to be so near some of the best Caribbean 'hang-outs' such as Skinny Legs, Miss Vie's and Donkey Diner - they are truly unique!
Our villa has amazing views, great privacy and is a wonderfully comfortable place to relax. Every time we are there, we are amazed at our good fortune to own such a piece of heaven. When we cannot be there, it is great to have guests and friends use it because St John is a magical place to be.
