Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Heaven!!! Every minute of each day! We stayed for 6 days in the back beach cottage - Staying on Hawknest Bay was incredible, at night you could hear the waves and during the day you had the beach to yourself. The cottage was immaculate, every need was anticipated and taken care of with beautiful bedding, fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. Terri our host is an incredible woman, warm, smart and professional, she runs a first rate business. Terri went above and beyond, her knowledge of the island help with dinner reservations and most of all her kindness made this an wonderful trip.

Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week in the beach cottage. Waking up just a few steps from the beautiful beach and warm waters of Hawksnest Bay was a dream. We enjoyed every moment here. For the most part we had the beach all to ourselves. We made use of the kitchen and brand new gas grill and prepared most of our meals there. Teri recommended having lobster at Morgan's Mango one night which did not disappoint. YUM! We worked off our delicious dinners opening coconuts, paddling the provided kayaks and exploring the reefs (rent snorkle gear in town). Keep your eye peeled for sea turtles and rays - we had the pleasure of swimming with both. The beach cottage and grounds were private, safe, clean, quite and comfortable. Teri was a most gracious and helpful host.

50th Birthday at Gibney Beach

  • 5 of 5
My husband planned this 50th bday trip for me and from the moment we arrived to the minute we left everything was perfect. We have been to St John 6 or 7 times and this location was by far the best!!! The cottage was charming, accommodating and right on the private beach. Our host, Terri was so helpful. She helped us with dinner reservations and joined us as well one evening. It was nice having the owner close by and getting to know the history of the property. We had everything we needed to make the week enjoyable from fresh fruit picked on the property by Israel to paddle boards and kayaks. One of the best features of the location was the ability to snorkel from the shore on one of the most beautiful beaches in St John! We would certainly stay again! Thanks Terri for a wonderful vacation!!!!

Best Honeymoon Ever

  • 5 of 5
As much as I would love to keep this gem a secret, I promised Terri I would write a review! From the point I reached out through email to reserve until the moment we left, Terri and her family welcomed us to their estate. As other people have noted, she respects your privacy, but is also there to provide suggestions for any plans you'd like to make! Terri's cottage is right through the garden and although the beach and garden cottage are close to each other, we felt as if we were in our own personal paradise! We even took moonlit showers outdoors at night under a full moon!

Isreal brought us coconuts and fresh fruit to enjoy on the beach and the grounds are stunning. The beach is amazing. It was my husbands first trip to the island and he kept asking me to take him to other beaches because he wanted to see the island. Each time we arrived at a new beach, fifteen mintues later he would say 'OK, let's go back to Hawksnest!' To put it in perspective, we booked a snorkel trip that would take us to Soggy Dollar and Foxy's. As we were approaching the cove of Hawksnest from the channel, I grabbed my camera to take a picture from the boat, looking back at our cottage. The boat turned sharply and dropped us off in Hawksnest cove to snorkel over by Mermaid's Chair! The beach and snorkeling are THAT good!

My husband and I travel for work often and prefer to rent condos/homes when we vacation. We don't need someone to fold our towels or pick up after us. If you need that, this is not the place for you. If you want to live like a local in paradise and have a private beach steps from your bed, this is your place! We constantly reflect on our time there and often say to ourselves we had the best honeymoon ever and can't wait to return!

Glorious!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot thank Teri enough for sharing her cottage, beach, and knowledge of St John! The pictures of the property don't do it justice--it is even more amazing than we expected! The Beach Cottage was absolutely perfect-impeccably clean, well-stocked, and inviting. The surrounding gardens were lush and beautiful, and Israel, the groundskeeper, kept us stocked with fresh bananas from their trees and herbs for us to cook with.

And the beach...words cannot express how peaceful and beautiful the beach is! The only thing that could have possibly coaxed us out of the relaxing lounge chairs was the crystal-clear, cool, turquoise water! We enjoyed every second of our beach time! We brought home not only beautiful photos and a New Year's tan, but also memories and stories of a sea turtle joining us as we kayaked and gorgeous tropical fish sightings when snorkeling right off the shore.

There are too many trails on the island to count, so if you get motivated enough to leave the property during daylight hours, all the adventure you want is all around you!

Teri was the perfect hostess, securing dinner reservations for us (La Tapa is a must during your stay), providing recommendations for excursions (that we didn't take because we were way too happy right where we were!), and sharing stories of her life on the island. When we return to Gibney Beach, which we will definitely do, we look forward to seeing her again as much as staying at her lovely property!

I have been to St. John three times, Gibney Beach Cottage is the paradise I have always dreamed of. The cottage is absolutely the most charming well stocked villa with everything you could ever need. The beach is your front yard with sun, shade, chairs to lounge, rafts to float, and a kayak.... the garden behind the cottage was the most serene place to spend time with your thoughts or your loved ones, Isreal keeps the grounds in immaculate condition, he cut us fresh coconut from a tree in the garden, that was the freshest coconut I have ever had.....what more could anyboby ask for. Going into Cruz Bay is a short drive for groceries, shopping, and dinner. I would highly recommend La Tapa for a wonderful dinner experience. Then for lunch or a drink I recommend Skinny's in Coral Bay.
I can't thank Terri enough for sharing her paradise with us. She was there if we needed her for anything and she respected our privacy, however I enjoyed spending time talking with Terri about St John and our life adventures. I am going to return to St. John in March 2013 and yes I will be staying at Gibney Beach Cottage. This will be my paradise every time I return to St. John.
Terri, thank you so much....
