Coral Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Villa & Cottage complex, 2 Bedroom, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2 or four)

Anchorage Aweigh is our exquisite 2 bedroom complex overlooking Coral Bay harbor. This couples-only villa boasts a centrally located shared pool and large pool deck with picturesque views of Coral Bay, St John. Anchorage Aweigh villa is comprised of a main house with a separate one bedroom cottage. If only one bedroom is desired, the main house will be available. If two couples are traveling together, the cottage becomes the second bedroom for an additional $600/week, regardless of season. Cottage is not rented by itself. This setup provides both couples with the chance to spend time together, yet have complete solitude when desired. The maximum number of guests at any given time is four on the property. It is a tranquil and serene setting with spectacular views of Coral Bay harbor, mountains and the historical 250+year-old Moravian Church.

Both villas have travertine marble floors, cable railing, air-conditioned bedrooms, outdoor stone showers, full kitchens, indoor/outdoor living and dining areas, gas grills and a shared pool and laundry facility. All of the appliances are new and include full-sized refrigerator, gas range, microwave and dishwasher.

Please note our calendar is accurate and up to date. We have more guest reviews on Trip Advisor as well.

Main Villa: Here you will find a king sized bedroom set with a gorgeous brand new sleigh bed. The mattress is a Serta memory foam with cooling gel. The bedroom opens out to the covered porch and is air conditioned. The bathroom has a granite vanity. There is an outdoor stone shower under an open air roof.

The kitchen has blue pearl granite counters with an exquisite glass tile backsplash. It is filled with all the amenities you will need to prepare many gourmet meals.

There is a granite-topped indoor dining table to enjoy should you decide to eat inside.

The living room has two love seats overlooking both the church and harbor. There is a 12' sliding glass door facing the harbor for you to enjoy the panoramic views. There is a flat-screened television in here as well.

The main house has an expansive wrap-around porch. We have an oversize sectional couch outdoors to relax and enjoy the view. There is also a dining table to enjoy meals alfresco. Sit and enjoy a cool drink on the breezy, covered porch while watching the sailboats bobbing on the harbor.

From the living room, the pool is accessed through an indoor set of stairs.

In both the cottage and the villa, you’ll enjoy the full gourmet kitchen with all of the amenities expected for the master chef.

Cottage:

There are golden granite countertops. Eat at the spacious indoor raised bar, or enjoy meals alfresco on the outdoor dining table with Coral Bay harbor and the Moravian church as your backdrop.

The quaint and cozy living area features a leather couch, coffee table and chairs. There is an entertainment center which includes a surround sound stereo system with IPod dock, video and book library and Wi-Fi center. It’s a comfortable place for relaxing and reliving your St. John experiences.

There is a full bath off the living area. Exit the second door into the outdoor stone shower. It is made with local stone and is decorated with seashells. There is a rectangular opening facing the harbor. Enjoy the experience of showering under the star-filled sky overlooking the mellow glow of the Coral Bay evening. There is an arched doorway leading onto the covered porch, including a swinging half-sized 'bar' door.

The spacious upstairs covered deck features a porch swing, an outdoor living room set (loveseat, 2 chairs w/ottomans and coffee table) and a beautiful outdoor dining table.

There are two ways to access the downstairs bed, bath and covered porch. You can use the the beautiful indoor cherry spiral staircase or use the outdoor stairs that wrap around from the front door to the downstairs covered porch. The pool deck is a half flight down from upstairs and a half flight from the downstairs bedroom. The downstairs bedroom features a queen bed, oversized dresser, nightstands and a small closet. There is a 32' plasma flatscreen tv mounted in the bedroom, along with a DVD player as well as a DVR player allowing you to record shows of interest while you're at the beach.

There is also a half-bathroom on this level. Opening the sliding glass door brings you out onto the downstairs covered porch.

Sunday mornings are a special time here. You’ll hear the church bells ring at 8:30 am. The traditions of this historic, over 250 year old, Moravian church can be felt through the choral singing that drifts up the hillside. It’s an extraordinary experience you’ll not soon forget.

Coral Bay is located on the quiet, mellow side of St. John. A 2-minute drive down the hill will bring you to a variety of shopping, restaurant and entertainment options. Beaches and the National Park hiking trails can all be found a short distance away.

You'll definitely want a rental car so you can take advantage of some of the most pristine views of the lush, tropical hillsides and aqua blue seas. The 'busy' town of Cruz Bay is a 20 minute drive away.

This house has been an ongoing dream of ours and we have taken great pride in the construction of it. You can see our hard work on our blog that can be found on Google

We have completed a gorgeous 10 x 20 mosaic tiled swimming pool overlooking the harbor, with a 600 sq. ft. pool deck and adjacent tropical garden. Part of it is shaded by a huge royal palm tree and part is under cover of a shaded porch. The pool is a saline pool - meaning there is very little chemical use. Your hair, skin and clothing will not be affected as they might with a chlorinated system.

CUTE PLACE BUT MISSING THE FINISHES

  • 3 of 5
We recently stayed here and while it is a very cute place the finishing touches are missing (lack of towel hooks/racks/no toilet paper holders/and so on). I love the 'green' concept incorporated in the building of this cottage; but, we never had a even a 'warm' shower. There are very few towel racks or places to hang items. Seeing that there is no washer and/or dryer our towels never dried. If you leave things out to dry they inevitably get soaked again by the quick moving showers that move through. So, with cold showers and wet towels getting clean at the end of the day was a true chore that we did not look forward to! I do realize we could have made use of the laundromat but that was a 15-20 minute drive and really not what I wanted to spend my time on while on vacation. In addition, they are building a larger home on the property that really hurts the view from the cottage and eventually will eliminate privacy once completed and in use and guests will no longer have the option of enjoying a private pool and will be in very close (earshot) proximity of the renters of the main house. There are some very nice things about the cottage though and don't mean to say we did not enjoy our stay because it would be hard not to - the house is very clean and the deck is very nice as is the pool - but, if you are looking for 'luxury' it misses the mark as it just lacks amenities and details that accompany that definition for me. Overall, it is all in what you are looking for - I'm thrilled to have spent the time in St. John and the Coral Bay location is awesome.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that these guests did not enjoy Anchorage Aweigh more than they did. We always advertise that we do not offer laundry facilities. We have two towel racks and two hooks inside of the upstairs bathroom. On the lower covered porch, we have a minimum of 6 hooks to hang towels, snorkel masks, bathing suits, etc. It does not rain in this location. We also provide a minimum of 6 large beach towels and 6 bath towels. We understand the concern with the lack of hot water. In an effort to be eco friendly, we incorporated a solar hot water system. We are in the process of building the new house. However, it is only worked on when we are staying in the cottage and never when there are guests present. The new house is built into the hillside and does not impede upon the view of the harbor whatsoever. The new house will be finished in August. We are marketing the houses as a shared pool complex with reduced prices. The new house faces in a different direction, so it offers privacy. We try to provide all the amenities any guest will need to make their stay relaxing and enjoyable. Most of our reviews on this site and on others show that the vast majority of guests enjoy our villa.

PERFECT RETREAT FOR COUPLES

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Anchorage Aweigh. The house was immaculate and just as described in the listing with spectacular views down into Coral Bay. The outdoor area had such extremely comfortable furniture (dining table too) that we rarely spent a moment inside. We enjoyed the use of the pool, which with it's southern sunny exposure was warm enough for us even in February. The kitchen was well stocked and even had spices, oils, condiments, etc for our use.
The house is located up Seagrape Hill, which is a completely paved road (not all secondary roads are in St. John). It was an easy drive down to Coral Bay where we greatly enjoyed the local restuarants Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro and especially the Coral Bay Caribbean Oasis (we got delicious and inexpensive take-out from them). We also found the location to be centrally located to all our favorite beaches, whether on the North Shore, East End, or Salt Pond area.
The owners were extremely easy to work with and very prompt at answering all my questions.

WEDDING AND HONEYMOON HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Anchorage Aweigh was unreal. The privacy was astounding, and the view was breath-taking. The only thing that threatened our comfort in the villa was the mosquitos, but the villa equips you with an electric flyswatter that takes care of that! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook, but we never made it to that point because Skinny Legs and Donkey Diner down the hill were too tempting! Besides those, there are plenty of restaurant options in Coral Bay. We spent every day at the beach, so it was nice that Anchorage Aweigh is only 5-10 minutes away from the most beautiful beaches in the world. The air-conditioned bedroom was a lifesaver, too. We slept like babies. Oh, and the pool! So refreshing! The night before our wedding, I stayed in the Westin so we could get ready separately. I can honestly recommend Anchorage Aweigh over a 4-star resort any day! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

FANTASY ISLAND!

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous home, setting, island ... When reading the descriptions and reviews of Anchorage Aweigh as we planned for our 30th wedding aniversary our expectations were high - they were not only met but exceeded! We miss leisurely breakfasts on the balcony overlooking the bay, town of coral bay, and the church. We miss evenings by the pool, watching the stars and an evening swim. The home is spectacular, well maintained and we were comfortable just hanging out there and cooking dinners some nights with the grill and well equiped kitchen. Days were filed with beaches, hiking, snorkeling, sailing and sight-seeing. We thought that Kauaii was laid back, but Coral Bay was a couple of notches lower than that. We loved it but probably not for everyone. Skinny Legs was a great place to catch dinner, but there were several other restaurants in Coral Bay as well. Since the villa is just above the village you will definitely hear the sounds associated with daily life in Coral Bay - buses, motorcycles, music in the evening. Be prepared to adjust shower schedule if you need hot water - it's solar so it's not warm in the morning or cloudy, rainy days (at least when we were there). Didn't need the A/C much after we figured out how to turn on the ceiling fans (there is a remote). Small quirks to adjust to as you kick back in PARADISE! We definitely want to go back.
ENJOY!

RELAXING IN SAINT JOHNS~

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful, views from all sides of the wrap around deck were spectacular...especially watching the stars at night, pool was so much fun and the view from the pool was fantastic! Sheep, chickens, donkeys and lizards all walking around wild and free! I would go back in a second! The outdoor shower was fun....look up to the sky and out a window with a view of the pool and the bay! To bad we can't have one of those in Minnesota! hahahahh!

YOUR SEARCH IS DONE...

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been more happy with our stay at Anchorage Aweigh. It is a short drive up Sea Grape Hill, which is a fun hill to drive. Look the video up on Google! Marc met us at the villa and gave us a quick rundown of information. The minute we walked in we knew we had made a great choice. The villa was fresh and clean. Everything about it was perfect, the view, the pool, the location. The owners have thought of everything you could every need. The ipod dock was great to listen to our music while sitting on the deck taking in the view, they have a complete kitchen and all the utensils that you will need to fix dinners there, as the restaurants get quite expensive eating out every night. Coral Bay is the quieter side of the island, and that is just what we wanted. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from in Coral Bay. We brought hot cereals and some bagels with us to have for breakfast at the villa. Then we would head out to one of the beautiful beaches or a hike that are a short drive from the villa. After a morning/early afternoon at the beach, we came back to the villa for a shower and to relax in the pool and then out to dinner. The outdoor shower is lovely...either taking a shower during the heat of the day or under the stars.
The only person I would caution is someone that has problems with stairs, as there is a steep spiral staircase that you have to go up and down to get to the bedroom. We loved it, but someone that has a problem with stairs may not. Otherwise, this villa is awesome!
