Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

If you love the beach, what could be more perfect then vacationing on one of St John's beautiful beaches. The front yard is literally on Gibney Beach. It proved to be the perfect get away for two and we are making plans to return next year. A second house on the property is larger and would be good for two couples or a family with children. I totally agree with the rave reviews that are already posted. The beach cottage is charming and well taken care of by the owner, who lives on the property.

Located inside The Virgin Island National Park, it is a short easy drive to Cruz Bay and the other famous North shore beaches. The owner Teri and the groundskeeper Israel are very friendly and eager to help make your stay wonderful. The Gibney family are a part of St John's history and are mentioned in books about St John. I loved staying at The Gibney Beach Cottage and am no longer searching for the perfect villa for our St John vacations.

Perfect Annual Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming here for 11 years. You can not get a better location on St. John. Right out the door is the beach! All the comforts of home. Close to town, but extremely quit and private. We eat in most evenings with a wonderful grill available. All your beach needs provided, comfy chairs, hammocks, kayaks, limited snorkel gear. Hope to continue our annual retreat for years to come on wonderful Gibney Beach! The property is locally owned and managed with the owners on site to make your stay perfect!

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!
