Overview

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Moonswept was named one of the Top 5 New Caribbean Villas of 2008 by Caribbean Way Canada Magazine. The villa is owned by two New York City musicians, Garry Dial and Terre Roche. If you are one of the many returning guests you'll be happy to hear that Moonswept has added a brand new hot tub to the amenities!

Moonswept is a picturesque retreat, high above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean with its scattering of islands, splendid in the morning sun and magical in the moonlight. The villa is a spacious getaway as far from the madding crowd as one could be, with the luxury of a villa and the serenity and natural beauty of an enchanted island.

When you enter the front door the high vaulted ceiling is a grand dome over the kitchen area, not unlike the sky itself. You're inside, but you're not cramped. Almost immediately you are called toward the Great Room by the most spectacular view of the sea through huge windows that give a sweeping vista of your surroundings. You'll want to stop and experience this moment fully. Many of our guests have remarked that the photographs on the website don't begin to evoke the feeling that comes with being at Moonswept.

The villa has plenty of cozy spaces in which to congregate, yet you'll never feel confined. The colors, the artwork on the walls, the furniture and all of the small details of design are elements mindfully added over time to maintain an environment in which each visitor can feel at home.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the modern conveniences. There are two equal-sized bedrooms, each with a large screen TV, two spacious bathrooms, laundry facilities, a large screen TV in the Great Room sitting area, a wine cooler and Wi-Fi throughout the house. If you feel like eating indoors, you can sit at the great Basque-style dining table in the center of the villa and watch the moods of the sea and sky changing moment to moment.

Out on the pool deck you'll sit under the awning in the shade and enjoy meals at the dining table, or soak up the sun's rays on the deck chairs by the pool in a completely private environment. There's a hot tub for soothing the tired muscles that we all seem to bring along with us. This is a great place from which to watch the night sky with it's stars, moon, satellites and comets inviting your mind to expand outward and reconnect with your true nature.

We sincerely hope that you can experience the beauty of the island of St. John through the wonder of Moonswept Villa and bring back with you some of her inspiration and serenity.

Four-wheel drive vehicle required.

About Terre Roche

We are two New York City musicians. When we arrive at Moonswept we exhale. It is the most exhilerating exhale we've ever experienced!

Why Terre Roche chose Coral Bay

We never dreamed of buying a house in St. John. Through a series of magical events, we visited the island, performed some shows there, bought the land and a dear friend of ours helped build the villa.

What makes this house unique

Unlike any other place we've ever been, Moonswept has a powerful effect on the soul, healing the wounds of stress and empowering us to return to our work lives in New York City.

Swept Away

  • 5 of 5

4th time at Moonswept was phenomenal! Once again, the views were remarkable and indescribable. While the trip up and down Calabash Boom can be challenging, the reward is oh, so worth it! Villa was great as always! Dave keeps the villa in tip top condition and it certainly shows. We hope our next visit will be two weeks as one week is not enough! Moonswept always gives us a serious case of villa gravity! We have so many plans to hit the beach and find ourselves unwilling to leave such a special place!

We would recommend for anyone wanting to truly get away from it all...

Amazing View and a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time to St. John and was our favorite place to stay. So many great extras in this house. We could tell that a lot of effort went into the planning and mantinece of this home. The beds were super comfortable, the breeze was wonderful (no AC needed), and the patio/pool area was exceptionally well planned. We loved sitting out under the stars in the hot tub. It was so private and quiet we slept with the windows open every night.

The view is amazing!!! Pictures don't do it justice. I could sit in the chase lounge all day and watch the clouds change the lighting on the east end of St. John, Tortolla, and many other islands beyond.

The house had everything we needed to enjoy our trips to the beach including coolers, very nice beach chairs, beach umbrella, and beach towels.

The kitchen was very well stocked, and we enjoyed cooking in the evening after spending the day at the beach. The newly opened dolphin market just down the road was wonderful. It made packing lunches for the beach very easy.

If you have never been to St. John, the road up to the house may be a bit of a shock. A 4 wheel drive Jeep will help with the bumpy gravel road and incline. Dave was very helpful in finding our way up the first evening we arrived. While it was a bit of an adventure, it was not dangerous. I always felt safe on our drive up and down. The view, house and privacy was well worth the journey.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home!

Moonswept exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The views at Moonswept are amazing. The villa has everything you need, to include coolers, beach chairs, washer & dryer, & anything you could need to cook there. The pool & hot tub were so relaxing, & the beautiful views continue to the outdoor space, with the pergola & dining area. We couldn't have asked for a better property manager than Dave. Very informative & helpful. Owners were also very responsive. We would absolutely recommend Moonswept. You will not be disappointed!

excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

The moonswept team was very professional, which helps the experience. The villa is as good, if not better than the pictures, and the views from the villa are immaculate. All of the furniture is comfortable, and there is plenty of space to relax. The villa has all the amenities you need (even beach gear) In my opinion, the best part of the villa is the patio with pool, jacuzzi, etc. It was a great place to relax. If I could, I would be back there in a second. The only service announcement, is that the road to the villa, calabash boom, is bumpy, but safe, so have 4 wheel drive.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to St. John for many years, and rented all types of villas, but nothing can compare to Moonswept. The villa is so comfortable, quiet and private. Everything worked perfectly inside the villa, the beds were really comfortable and there was not a single detail overlooked. We can't wait to plan our return.

St. John is a quiet and pristine haven mainly consisting of a State Park. It is known for having the most beautiful beaches in the world. Hiking, snorkeling, diving, swimming and boating are among the many activities for vacationers. It's restaurants are great, as it attracts many top chefs. There are a myriad of opportunities to dine outside on the beach, high above overlooking the state park and the ocean. You'll have to stop your car to wait as donkeys, goats, sheep, horses, cows and chickens cross the road. There are small boutique shopping areas where you will be able to find treasures to bring home. Opportunities abound for having massages, catered meals and sunset sails among the islands. Our caretaker, Dave, is a long-time island native and a really great guy! He can direct you toward many hidden treasures among the day trip offerings. In the house there are books about the history of the island that you can read as you take in the breathtaking view of the sea.
