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.

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

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.

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.

I really cannot fully describe the wonderful experience we had at Moonswept - from the "adventurous" ride up Calabash Boom to the breathtaking view, you will be thrilled with your stay. My husband and I, along with our 8 year old, son fully enjoyed the villa - we ate in every night (why leave with the relaxed vibe and unparalleled view?) and even decided to lounge by the pool for an entire day when the water on the North shore was a little rough. The villa has all you could need, and when you have questions, Dave is there to assist! Dave could not have been more helpful (even giving snorkeling tips to our son!) and responsive. Thank you Gary and Terre for giving us a vacation experience we will never forget. We are already thinking about how/when we can return!

Everything at moonswept was emaculate upon our arrival. The view from the villa was awesome. Dave the caretaker couldnt have Been better. When we arrived he showed us around and told us all the pertinent information regarding moonwept, then we never heard from him unless we needed something. I would recommend moonsweept 100%! At first we were a little hesitatant since someone else lived onsite, but we never heard from Dave nor did we see him. He truly takes pride in maintening moonswept to the upmost standard. We will definitely return!

Truly spectacular, panoramic views from a perfectly designed and furnished villa for two couples.

Moonswept exceeded our expectations in many ways. As others have written, photos on the website can not capture how spectacular and panoramic the views are from this villa. With a 180 degree view from 700 ft. above Coral Bay, nearly all of the BVI's are visible, completing a truly beautiful picture of paradise.
The villa itself has an ideal layout for two couples. The two master bedrooms, each with king bed and private bathroom, are equivalent and at opposite ends of the house to provide privacy for both couples. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed by any chef who enjoys cooking while on vacation.
The outdoor patio with pool, hot tub and covered seating area are all ideal. Again, the views are so spectacular, it's hard to read more than a few pages of your book before you look up and marvel at just how special this location is.
Much has been written about the challenging road up to the villa. This is greatly exaggerated, especially given that anyone staying here will have a 4 wheel drive jeep or SUV. The road is "no big deal". It is typical St. John, confirming that you have left the masses behind and escaped to paradise.
The location is very private and quiet. As one drives down to the main road, the villa is perfectly situated midway between "downtown Coral Bay" to the left and the beaches of
Salt Pond & Lameshur Bays to the right.

Moonswept Villa

Wonderful property with a view that is captivating. Moonswept is a well maintained and lovely home that was accurately described in the website. The photographs did not do the villa justice in regards to the view. The amenities were adequate and the kitchen was well stocked with necessary tools and gadgets for all type's of chef's. Moonswept was very private, other then the occasional visit from the donkey and the pool and hot tub was situated with views and privacy in mind. The plantings around the pool area afforded additional privacy from the road and lighting at night was an added treat. Moonswept was nicely appointed but not fussy or overdone. The property manager was not intrusive but did give us helpful hints and suggestions. I would highly recommend Moonswept Villa.

This home was in perfect condition, even more beautiful than the photos suggest, the view was spectacular, the house manager friendly, professional, extremely helpful and full of great suggestions for activities and outfits to make it happen, while also respecting our privacy. We enjoyed being on this quieter side of St. John, and loved Great Salt Bay for snorkeling, Ram's Head hiking, Skinnylegs and
Miss Lucy's for casual but wonderful eats and drinks. A great escape. We will be back.

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.
