There is one air conditioned bedroom with a queen bed. 100% cotton sheets down pillows. (others are available)
A deck off the bedroom with lounge chairs umbrella and an ocean view.
The bathroom has a screened shower looking onto lovely island fauna. Wrap yourself in 100% lush cotton towels
The kitchen is fully equipped with Cuisinart cookware, Wustof knives, and all major and minor appliances.
We thought of everything. All in an effort to insure your ultimate comfort.
The cottage is decorated with all mahogany furniture and cool Caribbean colors. The Weber gas grill and dining table on the front deck is great for alfresco dining.
This lovely cottage is perfect for a couple with romance in mind or someone who just wants to relax between exploring our gorgeous island of St. John. When you are done doing that, just fix yourself a cool tropical drink, have a seat on the deck and listen to the palm trees blow in the breeze and watch an occasional sail boat glide on by. Can't wait to see you here!
I came to St John on vacation in 1980 from Newport Beach California . I loved it so much I came back in 1981 and opened the first hair salon on St John. I gave myself one year but loved it so much I stayed. And I am still here loving it so much !!!!
Just as the name states this is a Cute Cozy Cottage, Craig & Jennifer are the best hosts. My first rental by owner and Jennifer made me feel comfortable from day one, it will not be my last VRBO and we will return to stay here again. We rented a jeep for the day after we arrived, but no worries Craig picked us up at the dock in Cruz bay and drove us the 1.5 miles to the cottage. He explained all the best places to shop for food and gas along the way. Once there I noticed that it was clean just like Jennifer said it would be, with a goody bag of snacks, cheese and crackers, fresh water and a well stocked bar, all very welcomed after a full days travel. Also has two beach chairs and a cooler, nice touch and all the items needed to cook inside or grill on front porch. Wifi was a bit week and only worked on the front porch but hey all I wanted to do was check mail in the evening and look at news in AM so it did not bother me at all, also lots of stairs to go down to get into the cottage, this is not in any pictures and no big deal just worth a mention if stairs are an issue for you.
Hosts live right next door so if you need anything they are a phone call away, asked once for extra beach towels, they arrived moments later, we also seen Craig a few night when we returned home and he was walking the dog but he only stopped when we asked if we could pet the dog as we we're missing ours. So if you wish not to interact you will never know they are there.
We are walkers and decided to walk back into town the first night, but I will say beware these hill are very tough to walk up and down and we were happy to pick up the jeep the next day. A 4x4 is needed for driving around and they do drive on the left side here, but no big deal after a few turns you get the hang of it. I found the hair pins and tight turns a little fun to drive but some may be nervous just go slow every one on island seems to be aware of us travelers going a little slower. We went to a different beach every day, some flat, rough, small, bigger, but all had great snorkel spots, nice sand and a few different shades of blue water, could not ask for more. Never had a bad meal while here on the island, liked the burger at Skinny legs, ribs at Driftwoods Dave's, breakfast at Cruz Bay Landing.
So if you want a clean place to stay, deck with a view, cool shower, grill, stocked kitchen, front deck, chairs and cooler for the beach, comfortable bed, great host, all for a good price, than this is it.
Jennifer and Craig were awesome hosts- great cottage, especially loved the outdoor shower. The kitchen well stocked, great balcony, comfortable bed. The cottage very close to Cruz Bay where many teataurants and bars are. Use of cooler and chairs nice touch. Great stay!! Looking forward to return one day.
Our stay at the cottage was just what we were hoping. Perfect for a couple. It is in a very quiet neighborhood but still easy to get everywhere. Jennifer and Craig were just super at making us feel welcome and making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks, we are looking forward to a return.
This is a great place to stay and reasonably priced. Owners Jennifer and Craig made us feel welcome from start to finish. Craig met us at the ferry and directed us to the cottage a short drive away. (If you bring a car to St John's it would be best to have a four-wheel drive vehicle.) The cottage was decorated with flowers and the refrigerator was filled with treats, a welcome touch after a day of travel. The cottage is pleasing combination of comfort, decoration and ecological sensibility. I would, without reservation, recommend this property to my friends and family.
The cottage was cozy for two people. The view off the back deck was very pretty. The bathroom gives you the feeling as though you are showering outside as there are two screened windows in the shower. This was especially neat when it was raining one morning. It was really hard to beat for the price and proximity to town. I do recommend renting a jeep though as it would be a bit far to walk. The furnishings were very nice and had pretty much everything you could need during your stay such as sunscreen, bug spray, spices for cooking etc. I would recommend this to any couple looking for a relaxing place to stay with all the amenities you need!
The cottage is perfectly named and is everything we thought and hoped it would be. We've visited St. John several times and cute cozy cottage wins for most convenient and easiest to get to. It's just a short drive from Cruz Bay and it's paved all the way! Parking and turn around is easy for the rental jeep. We absolutely love the open shower, I sure wish we could have one of those here in Georgia! Everything we needed was there, shampoo, sunscreen, bug spray, coolers, towels, beach chairs, even the rum! The cute pink cups were perfect for sipping rum drinks at Maho Bay. Jennifer and Craig were wonderful, so helpful with everything. They're really nice. They were available anytime we wanted anything. They even took time from their day to let me come over and visit with Bella the cat and Lucy the dog when I just needed a few minutes of pet therapy. If you're not an animal person, no worries, we only saw them upon request and they were never on the cottage property wandering around. It was 7 years ago since we were last on St. John and am happy to say, it's still the same. We love, Maho Bay, burgers at Skinny Legs, pizza at the rum bar in Cruz Bay, the hot dog at the Tap Room is the best ever, the locally made banana bread and bread pudding. Everyone on the island was so nice to us, a very friendly place to be. We look forward to returning again in a few years!
