About Annie Harris

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.

Annie Harris purchased this villa in 2005

Why Annie Harris chose Coral Bay

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!

What makes this villa 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.

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.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Coral Bay Outlook. We rented the entire house and my mom enjoyed her own space in the downstairs unit. Coming from a very flat, close to sea level area, the hills were intimidating. But worth it for the views, the breeze and being able to sleep comfortably with the windows open. I loved the outside shower! We walked to AquaBistro for dinner twice. The cooler and chairs were a big bonus! We went to a different beach every day and packed lunches and drinks.

I rent often from VRBO. Annie was the most helpful and informative person I have ever rented from! As this was our first time in St. John, I received great information on what to expect and how to get to the Coral Bay from the airport.

Comfortable, convenient and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four came here to escape the relentless Boston snow, and we were in heaven with perfect 85-87 degree temperatures and bay breezes. The home is exactly as pictured. The owner Annie was prompt and pleasant to work with and provided excellent tips and directions. The property manager Kaaren was on top of things and cautioned us that the open air bar might be noisy on one of our nights, but that didn't bother us as the music was fine. Each morning began with sunrises and birdsong. The location is ideal for exploring the entire island from Cruz Bay to the northern beaches to the East End; simply pack your jeep with the coolers and beach chairs provided for your use. You can walk down the hill for groceries, mail/print services and restaurants, then back up to peace, privacy and that amazing view.

Coral bay

  • 4 of 5

My family of four which included a 2 year old grandson enjoyed our stay at Coral Bay Outlook, the views were the best ever as in was our 15 th trip back to St.John! Did not know there was an additional cottage behind us so parking was a bit tight and one shower had extremely slippery floor! On island manager was receptive to issues we had but overall very simple furnishings and comfortable.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Coral Bay Outlook garden level suite for five days in March and loved it. It was perfect-- comfortable, clean, convenient to everything, wonderful views, great restaurants and heavenly beaches right nearby. The property had everything we needed, and dealing with The owner and with the property manager on site was great. The communication in advance was thorough and so helpful. All good! What a great find!

Great views

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 had a great week-long stay at Coral Bay Outlook. We found the house to be clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The location was spectacular (though as other reviewer commented the driveway was very steep and 4WD seems like a must) and we really appreciated watching the sunrise from the balcony each morning. The outdoor showers were wonderful, and the full kitchen/gas grill made staying in and cooking dinner very easy. We would recommend Coral Bay Outlook!

Coral Bay TreeTop Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Since my husband and I had planned on heading to St John we figured to look into something small, less is more we figured.. Wow .....those words less is more does not even begin to describe what was waiting for us at one of Annie's rental "The TreeTop".... Paradise from the time you wake to the magic of the sunrise mornings! Natures music singing to you..Roosters, tropical birds and goats welcoming you a new day..until you fall deeply asleep to the tropical breeze! I could go on and on..... It was beyond what we have ever experienced. We have traveled to many tropical islands over the years but I would have to give St Johns with their flare of fun (Skinny Legs,fun musical atmosphere, incredible burgers; Lucy's.. Sunday Morning Jazz & Brunch now that would be my Sunday weekends.. if I had to choose; Paul the bartender at the local bar at Aqua Bistro, real nice guy, makes great Tropical drinks! Morning breakfast at Pickles in Paradise.. might have wait for the traffic of the goats and donkeys:)... say hi to Mark! Crystal blue waters, sugar sand beaches, incredible snorkeling minutes from the beach..... Rejuvenating hikes, history... natures beauty hands down!! Must not forget the precious glue to your paradise Karren, your "property manager".. a real soul always there with a smile. Annie you have a perfect location in Coral Bay....thank you again for sharing your paradise with us..to begin every morning with gratitude, for our beautiful planet... we can not even begin to tell you how it has change our views on where and what we want to do in the the future... cant wait to return.. can we come back today? Much Peace and Thanks Dusty and Bill

Two thirds of the island of St John is a National Park. The village of Coral Bay nestles on the east side of the park next to Coral Bay Harbor. In the village, there are small shops and several excellent outdoor restaurants with live music and beach bars fronting on the harbor. The famous Skinny Legs bar is just minutes away by car. Our house is within walking distance of the village; yet high enough above the town so that the property is private, quiet and has wonderful views. You will be surrounded on three sides by gardens with jasmine, bougainvillea, and hibiscus. Many of the island's best beaches are just a few minutes drive from the house. Water sports equipment and kayaks are available for rent nearby.
