The Crow's Nest is the penthouse apartment of the Town & Country Building located in the heart Coral Bay on the Eastern end of St John in the US Virgin Islands. This fully air conditioned studio has vaulted ceilings and an open floorplan giving guests a comfortable and relaxing environment from which to explore all the wonderful places there are to visit on St John.

The third floor private deck allows you to watch all the comings and goings of the nearby harbor and favorite local restaurants such as Skinny Legs(cheeseburger heaven!) and the Donkey Diner(great for breakfasts). Enjoy grilling your own dinners in the back patio of the building.

On site parking is available, and a rental car is highly recomended. For added convenience the local bus does stop directly in front of the building. Within walking distance are excellent hiking trails and several restaurants. Beach access is within 10 minutes by car.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thanks for all your help! We loved sunset paddleboarding and hiking to Ram's head. We also appreciated all the homey touches at the Crow's Nest. Hopefully we will be back sooner than later!

A WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had to be in Coral Bay for business; so we rented this studio. It is a lovely, immaculate, well priced and very well appointed apartment. Yes, it is a studio but it is very spacious and has everything you would need for a stay in St. John. The pictures are accurate. Thais Taylor, the property manager lives on property. She is very well informed, very helpful and available. I would highly recommend this property; and I will definitely return. We used the studio as a "home base" and easily explored the whole island. You are within easy walking distance to several fun laid back restaurants; but I would recommend having a rental car. Fortunately, this is not a busy, impacted, over crowded location; so if you love quiet, low key, casual tropical spots, the Crow's Nest is for you. We loved the owner's cat Dynamite. Also, the "daily commute" of many donkeys and goats past the building was great.

REFRESHING OASIS!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this adorable place for a week. The inside was very well cared for, clean and welcoming. Even though it is a studio the layout allows for the feeling of openness and plenty of space to store clothes, luggage, etc. I loved the bathroom and nice standing shower. Understanding that water is a precious resource on an island, I didn't mind conserving water! The porch is lovely and a great place to sit and have a cup of coffee. I enjoyed being right in Coral Bay, able to grab a burger at Skinny Legs or wall down to Pickles for breakfast. Also within short driving distance to BEAUTIFUL (and fairly secluded beaches). Thais, the property manager was so welcoming and friendly. Fully explained the property and have me great tips about island life. Felt from our interactions that if I had any problems (which I didn't) that she would be readily available to help. Needless to say, a weeks vacation at this beautiful spot left me feeling completely refreshed!

NOT SO LUXURIOUS...MAINTENANCE ISSUES

  • 2 of 5
The place is luxuriously furnished however the basics didn't function.

By the time we were ready to rinse the shampoo out of our hair the lukewarm water was cold. We were told once that clothes must be washing then suggested to turn the water off when soaping up to conserve. There was a problem with the water not being hot that was being ignored by the rental company and the VRBO manager. Windspree said to talk to the manager, the manager didn't resolve the issue and follow-up communication was poor.

There was only one window with a screen that we could open at night so the air had to be turned on. Once in bed and falling asleep after 15 - 20 minutes had passed it turned off with an E4 error message...every night. Again, Windspree said to get with VRBO manager. An attempt was made one night to fix by manager however it E4'd again that night. There was not any follow up by anyone concerning this...not Windspree or VRBO manager...other than implications that we don't know how to use the remote.

There are about 3-4 big power lines running across the front of the place within feet of the deck. In addition to Skinny Legs being directly across the street....you have to love the constant smell of hamburgers noon to night.

I think it would serve better as an office or year round accommodations. I would not rent this again.

CROWS NEXT

  • 5 of 5
We loved this little apartment, amenities and aesthetics were great. Perfect for couple.
Only complaint is the bed is a bit uncomfortable and the donkeys & chicken woke us a few times. You need a vehicle to get to the beaches. Felt safe and comfortable.

VERY HAPPY WITH OUR STAY

  • 4 of 5
We spent 5 nights at the Crows Nest in early Feb. 2014 and were very happy with our stay. The photos portray the unit perfectly. What they don't show is the some of the little things that enhanced our experience.
When we arrived there was some beer, juice and banana bread in the fridge and there are condiments and other small items that one likes to have on hand, but hates to buy for a few day stay. Also, the unit has some beach chairs and coolers which again, one could live without but make for a nicer experience when available.
We were a little concerned that the unit would be noisy as it is right across the street from Skinny Legs Bar, but the bar crowd seemed to head home very early. We slept with the windows opened and were not bothered at all by the bar noise. The local goats do chat (bleat), up a storm first thing in the morning, but that just adds to the charm of Coral Bay :)
The only minor hiccup that some folks might night like was a shortage of hot water. It really didn't bother us, but be advised, the water from the shower was usually warm, but not hot.
This place is perfect for a couple looking for a nice getaway.
*Disabled folks should note that it is on the third floor and you need to walk up a couple of flights of stairs to get in and out of the apartment.
