Guestbook comments from the owner
We could not have been more thrilled with our “home” on St. John, and of course with the island in general. This place is amazing. We love everything about this house – so beautifully furnished and with everything we needed to feel at home and make the trip a success. This was our first time in the Virgin Islands and we will definitely be back!

Thanks so much for sharing your home with us so that we could experience such paradise. We had the time of our lives. All the best!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very quiet, beautifully built and furnished, and very roomy for 2 people. My wife and I stayed here for almost 2 weeks in March and were very happy with your rental "cottage" (it felt like we had a separate unit). Mark and Mark are very accommodating hosts--helped us with wi-fi set up, treated us to a delicious dinner, and made available coolers, beach towels, etc. We have been renting properties through VRBO for almost 20 years and have never been disappointed (well, once....) , but this spot of yours in Coral Bay was a real treat. We will definitely be back again and will recommend it to our friends and family.

great hidden gem! amazing hosts!

hi mark and marco! sorry it took me so long to write this, but as you know, i move very slowly! my sister and i stayed here for a week last summer ( 2013) since i am a disabled traveler and use a wheelchair, i had to write many tedious and picky questions to mark before ascertaining if this would work. as it turns out, while not specifically handicapped accessible, it worked out VERY well! they were very accomodating for me, and since it's basically all flat, with one small step up to the patio which leads to the entrance, mark graciously built me a small moveable wooden ramp to make it fully indpendently accessible. with a rubber mat on it even!! so i wouldn't slip in wet weather ( a lot of wet weather!) thanks SO much guys!!!!! the inside is all flat, so will work very well for someone in a wheelchair or walking impaired. be aware you have to be able to walk a little, since the bathroom is not ADA standard. however, there is plenty of room, and they even supplied a shower chair for me, so all of the glaring accomodation problems were easily conquered. what more could you ask? as a disabled traveler and scuba diver, it's usually much more difficult to plan trips than this was. the location is on the far side of the island, so it's very quiet and secluded. the yard is gorgeous! the house is great! big open floor plan, excellent kitchen. the guys were great, and had us to dinner one night. Delicious!! only thing i would suggest is more cooling. i don't know how you would accomplish this without charging a fortune for air conditioning, not really feasible with the high open ceilings; but seriously, the many fans were not adequate. some nights it was just too hot to sleep. fans are great, but only blow the hot air around, so it was kind of like sleeping with hair dryers on! but that's a small prob compared to all the great stuff. you two have lived there so long you don't notice the need for air conditioning. but it was uncomfortable a bit!
thanks so much for everything! loved you and your great and reasonably priced house. and again, thank you both SO MUCH for your willingness to accomodate me ( and hopefully other disabled travelers). have definitely recommended this house to others! very hands on hosts. you will not be disappointed!!

Owner's Response: Hi Deb,
I’m happy you found our place so easily accessible and that we were able to tweak some things to meet your specific needs. I am, however, sorry to hear you were not comfortable with the temperature and I thank you for bringing that to my attention. We welcome all comments and suggestions to ensure we continue to provide comfortable accommodations for our guests.
Unfortunately, your stay with us last summer happened to be during a week that was unusually rainy and still. (We don’t typically have rain and the ensuing humidity in July.) I remember you mentioning that, partly due to your health condition, you were feeling overheated most everywhere that week.
While there may be some exceptions during adverse weather conditions, most guests find our accommodations quite comfortable, as you can see from our other reviews. I’m glad it didn’t put a damper on your trip and you were able to enjoy all St. John has to offer!
Thank you again for your review and I hope you’ll consider a future stay with us.

Over The Top!

  • 5 of 5
The property was everything it claimed to be and more! It was exceptionally clean, safe, appointed beautifully, and located well to take full advantage of St. John without the hassle of tourist density. And most importantly, Mark and Mark (the owners) were exquisite hosts!! We can't say enough good things about how nice they were to us and how accomodating they were. They were a treasure trove of local information about what to see and do while we were on St. John and the meal they prepared for Karen's birthday was a gourmet delight! We enjoyed their beautiful landscaping and having coffee on the veranda each morning; watching the sun rise over Coral Bay. The wild donkey's, sheep, goats, and chickens on St. John were a endless source of pleasure!

We would recommend taking full advantage of all the beautiful world-class beaches when you visit St. John (not a one of them was a disappointment to us) and also the many fascinating National Park Service hiking trails that are available (the Park Service-guided Reef Bay Trail hike is not to be missed!). St. John has a rich cultural history and a very friendly population of fun-lovong characters. While we ate most of our meals in (BTW: food prices at the grocery will shock you beyond belief - bring plenty of money!), when we ate out in the Coral Bay area, we particularly liked to eat at Skinny Legs, Miss Lucy's, and the Shipwreck Landing. Don't miss Colombo's smoothies at the junction of Center Line Road (Route 10) and Route 20. They're the best smoothies on the island and the rum is free! We also took a day sail and snorkel trip with Cloud 9 Adventures out of Cruz Bay. The captain and crew were very professional and loads of fun! Remenber, there's lots to see underwater as well as above water on St. John.

Karen and I highly recommend this property. It is an exceptional value and Mark and Mark are the ultimate hosts!! We'll defintely return some day!!

Quiet, beautiful location, very clean unit

  • 5 of 5
I researched for 2 weeks before I located this place. It was a good choice. Very quiet location, exceptional clean and organized. The unit was right off the road( very quiet road) and the grounds were beautiful, It was a 10-15 minute walk to the couple of stores and eating establishments down the hill. Desired beaches were at least a 10 to 15 minute drive, so it helpful for us to rent a car, Bring your own dvd's or board games if you need that kind of activity at night. The owners Mark and Mark were great, helpful if needed but unobtrusive. My husband and I felt we really lucky to have found this unit,

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place we found at "Inner Beauty"!!! We just returned from a 4 day trip to St. John and could not have picked a better place to stay. Do not hesitate to book with the owners, Mark and Mark, as they are wonderful guys.

The house is located in the beautiful area of Coral Bay, which we liked much more than Cruz Bay. We felt at home and had all our needs met at this house. The house is an absolute work of art, and the owners are true artists who have put their art and personal touches throughout the house. Everywhere you look, the small and thoughtful details make your trip all the more special. We plan on returning as soon as we can to stay here again. It is one of the best deals we have ever found.

Tips for staying here:
1. Bring movies or games for the evening, as St. John (especially Coral Bay) is fairly quiet. The house has a DVD player, and we wish we had brought some movies to watch.
2. There is no air conditioning, but it's pretty cool for the most part with the fans running. We were there during August, and we survived without it.
3. Go explore the little town of Coral Bay. There are some really good restaurants to find, and we loved Aqua Bistro the best. Be prepared for high!!! grocery prices, so maybe bring some food in your suitcase. The house has a full kitchen for your use which is great!
4. Most importantly, bring strong insect repellant. The mosquitos and sand fleas will eat you alive anywhere on this island. We wanted to sit outside more, but without repellant, it was a bloodbath. You should get out and enjoy the patio for sure!

In closing, don't hesitate to book this rental. It's incredible!

Exceeded All of our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
As our first visit to St John's we did a lot of investigation on where to stay and on return we agreed that Inner Beauty was the perfect selection. The home is roomy and beautiful. The location is ideal. After driving around the island for the week we were grateful for the easy access to the home (no hill to climb) and the convenience to Coral Bay. We walked to the grocery, the Donkey Diner and other great food options.
From a completely practical perspective the water tasted great (filtered), the home is spotless, the sheets were high quality (so soft), the grounds are beautiful. No question in our mind that we selected the right location.
