WATERLEMON VILLA CORAL BAY, ST.JOHN ~ IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VIEW!

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Waterlemon Villa is a private 3BR, 3BA vacation home located on the hillside overlooking Coral Bay, St.John. At 700 feet above sea level, this casually elegant retreat is high enough to capture the breezes of the trade winds and close enough to the harbor to watch the sailboats come and go. The breathtaking 50-mile view up the Sir Francis Drake Channel extends all the way to Spanishtown Harbor on the southern tip of Virgin Gorda. Two queen bedrooms and one twin bedroom accommodate up to six people, so it is ideal for three couples or a family, but the privacy of the location and pool make it just as enticing for a honeymoon couple or an anniversary trip! Larger groups can rent the house next door as well and accomodate up to twelve total.

The house is equipped for gourmet cooking with Cuisinart pots and pans, good knives, extensive cooking utensils, a microwave, and, of course, a blender and a margarita set! (This is a vacation home, after all). There is a Weber gas grill and plenty of non-breakable dishes and glasses if you wish to eat poolside under the sun umbrella. The wrought iron table on the upper screened-in porch is an ideal place to eat and enjoy the view.

There are multiple options for relaxing at the Villa from chaise lounges at the pool, to rocking chairs on the lower level porch, to the wicker set on the upstairs screened-in porch. The comfortable wicker living room set in the great room is a terrific place for watching TV or a movie or just listening to the stereo.

Coral Bay restaurants are five minutes from the house, and the outstanding snorkeling beaches of Salt Pond Bay and Leinster Bay are a scenic 10-15 minute drive. Put the beach chairs and the cooler in the car, grab the towels and spend the day exploring. The natural beauty of St. John awaits you!

Coral Bay and Waterlemon Villa are an easy 20-25 minute drive east from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. Come and visit, paradise is calling...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Waterlemon Villa welcomes children 8 years and older. The house is not suitable for younger children due to the height of the porches and retaining walls. In addition, a steep staircase between the first and second floors may make the house potentially undesirable for people with difficulty navigating stairs.

27th Anniversary trip-July 2009

Our trip to Waterlemon Villa was also our first trip to St. John so we did not know what to expect. We were VERY worried that the lack of AC would be a problem in July. Many people on the forums discouraged us from renting one without air based on our concerns but we took a chance and do not regret it one bit! We are from Alabama and run our air constantly from April to September! The breezes that blow continuously were a joy and believe it or not, one night we actually got a little COLD (it had finally rained about 30 minutes)!
The view from the villa is breathtaking and the villa itself is magnificent. The beds were great and the fans kept us cool each night. Waterlemon has so many great touches that made everything so much easier. We are used to walking directly out to a beach when on the Gulf Coast and trips to the beautiful beaches of St. John require some packing and planning. Ellen (the owner) has taken that into account and provides chairs, coolers, and beach towels, which makes this so much easier!
The outdoor showers were really nice. I actually put my contacts in BEFORE the shower so I could enjoy the view during the shower! There is also an indoor shower for those nights when you come in late or for the less adventurous so all tastes are covered.
There are so many nice touches, like books, movies, candles, spices, and a really well stocked kitchen, not that I believe in doing much cooking on a vacation, but many people do! There are even hairdryers in the bathrooms with diffusers! I didn't take mine to save space so that was great! Another surprise was a speaker for our MP3 player that is NOT an IPOD. I was also able to take my computer so we could find info while there.
The drive up was not nearly as frightening some other driveways we have seen on the forums. Backing out required a few passes but my husband mastered that quickly.
After we got there, I was really glad we picked Coral Bay. I really can't imagine staying around Cruz Bay and the villas with views of just the ocean are too much like what we have at home. We researched places to stay for hundreds of hours but it really paid off! We have been to other places in the Caribbean and I didn't think any place could be more beautiful that St. Lucia, but St. John just has so many wonderful beaches and the views to the other islands make it a cut above. The colors of the water are amazing and the snorkeling was fantastic. This was our best trip yet!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We had a fabulous trip!!!

Waterlemon Villa is absolutely lovely! The porches are wonderful, mornings and evenings: sunrise, sunset, Coral Bay! The beaches and water are spectacular! We loved the wildlife: donkeys, goats and sheep, mongoose, seaturtles, fish, stingrays. It was a week full of family time, relaxation, good food, good drinks, and lots of adventure. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We all agree that we hope we can visit again soon, perhaps as early as next year!

World-class view, very comfortable house

Waterlemon Villa is a wonderful base of operations for visitors to Saint John. The house is clean and well kept; the kitchen is fully-equipped for meal making; the beds are super comfortable; and even the showers have fantastic views.

The house is located in Coral Bay, which is on the quieter side of the island. That's not a disadvantage--there were plenty of markets and restaurants right nearby, access to Northshore beaches was easy, and we absolutely preferred Coral Bay to the busier/more hectic Cruz Bay.

We didn't have any problems with our stay, and our few questions were promptly answered by the property manager.

The only two downsides to staying at Waterlemon Villa? The 'side street' leading to the house was terrifyingly steep, although that's typical of driving in St. John. The other downside was that the views are so amazing, and the screened-in top deck so comfortable, that some days it was hard to leave the house to explore the rest of the island!

But seriously, don't miss exploring the rest of the island -- St. John is a wonderful destination, and it's hard to beat Waterlemon Villa for a place to call home during your stay.

A spectacular view! The one you dream about!

Waterlemon Villa is, truly, "ALL about the view!" I continue to picture beautiful Coral Bay as I fall asleep at night. As for the Waterlemon (not Watermelon!!) Villa itself, it falls just short of spectacular. It is a lovely, very comfortable place to hang your....bathing suit.....for a week or more.

We were prepared to face a daunting drive to/from the house, but it was amazingly easy after the first "run."

With everything you've ever wanted in a vacation home, there were few reasons to leave the Villa. (I must admit that we went out every night for wonderful dinners, especially at Aqua Bistro, as that is part of our "vacation.") Breakfasts and/or lunch were enjoyed indoors at the roomy kitchen table. The living room is comfy with sofa and chairs. I especially liked retiring to the (master) bedroom downstairs with its very comfortable bed. And there's a nice sitting area (with a view, of course) through the sliding glass doors. The ceiling fans are more than adequate to cool wherever you are.

I'd give Waterlemon a "thumbs up" in every regard. But the view is numero uno in my opinion!

A dream come true

Our very first trip to the island and we were kinda scared because we planned our trip through the Internet. We looked at pictures of the island and knew we had to go there. We found waterlemon villa scrolling through dozens and dozens of villas available to us. We knew waterlemon was the place for us because of the pictures of the view looking down on coral bay. We contacted the owner Ellen and she was so eager to help us plan our trip and confident that waterlemon would make us happy. We trusted her because every time we contacted her leading up to the trip she was quick at responding and such a nice person. We arrived at the villa and pulling into the driveway we seen right away that the scenery was exact to what was displayed on the web site. The villa was breath taking. I immediately rushed to the screened in porch because that is the place we were most excited to spend our time while we were there. The scenery was so breath taking that it made me emotional. I knew if heaven was on earth we found it. Every detail of the home was so perfect. You have to shower in the outdoor showers, looking down on the view while standing in the shower iis amazing. The home is Set up with everything a couple could possibly need or want but also set up to accommodate a larger party. We cannot say enough about Ellen and what a wonderful person she is. She won't let you down. One of the biggest questions I wondered was why was people telling us we needed to rent a jeep vrs a car? Well,we found out. The whole island is all hills. You are either climbing steep hills or descending steep hills. We explored every inch of the island. At first, I was white knuckled as my husband took on the duties of driving us around but after the first couple trips to and from the villa I was relaxed and had my feet pressed up to the rolled down windows. I don't no exactly what you are all looking for on your trip but I can say if you are anything like my husband and me and want a special time away from home with adventure trust in Ellen and I promise you will go home from your trip knowing that you are blessed. We can't wait to go to St. John again and already know that we don't want to stay anyplace but coral bay at waterlemon villa. Truly, a dream come true.
