Overview

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Astral Ridge is a rare find! To be able to enjoy this sublime view, from sunrise to moonrise, from such an elegantly beautiful home is transporting. The classic Caribbean style of this home is enhanced by beautiful tropical garden areas and lacks no amenity. The courtyard welcomes the visitor to enjoy a sunny afternoon beside a tranquil stone-edged swimming pool or to enjoy a good book from the shade of the covered porch.

The newly built home consists of two buildings on either side of the courtyard: On one side is a lovely bedroom with a four poster bed that looks out over the open air hot tub, the Caribbean Sea and nearby islands. There is a large, well appointed bathroom with interior and exterior showers that also boast gorgeous views.

On the other side of the courtyard you will find the living room, dining room and kitchen as well as a second bath. The mahogany kitchen is a beautifully designed blend of modern convenience and inviting charm. The dining room looks out over one of the nicest views to be found on the island and has an additional seating area that encourages the guest to linger.

The Coral Bay location of Astral Ridge is ideal in that it provides the visitor with quiet seclusion while still being close to restaurants and beaches. There are six different restaurants within two miles of the villa ranging from ultra-casual beach side cafes to fine dining. Salt Pond Beach is a few minutes further and offers one of the finest swimming options on the island. Kayaking, sailing, hiking and snorkeling are all nearby and snorkeling gear is provided for your use.

Keywords: Private secluded villa rental on St. John Virgin islands with ocean view, spa and pool. Romantic tropical house / villa with water view, hot tub. Perfect honeymoon home, couples getaway in Coral Bay. Nearby beach, restaurants and shops. Internet access.

This place is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

One word is all you need to describe Astral Ridge -- AMAZING! Astral Ridge is beautiful!! The descriptions and pictures come to life when you walk down the steps to the spectacular views. There was plenty of indoor and outdoor living space! For 2 people it was so luxurious! We loved that they had snorkel gear, a cooler, an umbrella and light beach chairs to use. The fully stocked kitchen was perfect since we cooked in a few times and we used the grill overlooking the island and bays. It was hard to decide if we wanted to stay at Astral Ridge to enjoy the views, pool and hot tub for the day or go out and explore. The sunrise from Astral Ridge can't be beat. We loved being at Coral Bay as it was nice and quiet but there were still restaurants and shops nearby. My favorite restaurant was Aqua Bistro. They have amazing food and amazing ahi tuna on Friday nights! It was also awesome being on at Coral Bay because we could explore the island on our way to Cruz Bay. The owners of Astral Ridge were amazing. They were very helpful and responsive to any request or question that we had. They really do go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is perfect! You will not be disappointed!! I will be back one day!!

Peaceful, Relaxing, Spectacular Views, AMAZING week!

  • 5 of 5

Astral Ridge is beautiful!! The descriptions and pictures come to life when you walk down the steps to the spectacular views. We had plenty of indoor and outdoor living space ... for 2 people it was so luxurious! We loved that they had a few sets of snorkel gear, cooler, umbrella and light beach chairs to use. The fully stocked kitchen was perfect since we cooked in a lot and used the grill overlooking the island and bays. The sunrise from Astral Ridge can't be beat. Not having A/C was okay (in December)... they have a ceiling and free standing fan for air flow. It was very loud at night with the tree frogs and nature sounds so be sure that you like those sounds as you drift off to sleep! We loved being at Coral Bay as it was nice and quiet but there were still restaurants and shops nearby if needed. The owners were helpful and super responsive with any request or question that we had. They really go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is perfect! You will not be disappointed!!

Owner's Response: Dear Shelly, It was our pleasure to have you as a guest at Astral. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed cooking meals at the house. I don't think any of the restaurants on the island have as nice a view as Astral Ridge does! And thank you very much for letting potential guests know about your stay. If your travels take you back to St. John we hope to see you again. Susan

A getaway second to none!

  • 5 of 5

We selected this property for our honeymoon based on the pictures shown and the notion of a romantic getaway / adventure; we couldn't have been more impressed with what we got. From the moment you are picked up at the airport and taxied across St. Thomas to Redhook, to time when the staff meets you off the ferry, you are given the experience of the "getaway". Once we reached Astral Ridge we were absolutely blown away....the pictures were what sold us but they couldn't compare with what we actually saw. The views are absolutely perfect and the layout just helps you to appreciate them. We could have been content staying at the villa all week as it had every amenity necessary for a getaway. But thanks to their snorkel gear on site we decided to see some of the surrounding areas. We ended up discovering that most everything we needed or wanted to do was within a 10 minute drive even though Astral Ridge gives you the perfect illusion of having an entire mountain all to yourself.

My wife and I are going to be back....no doubt about that. Only question is whether or not we are going to get Astral Cottage and bring some friends down with us. Thank you Susan for providing the best facilities and Service for our Honeymoon!

An outstanding property and an outstanding team!

  • 5 of 5

Other reviews detail this place and its amenities, we have nothing to add. But we want to restate that Susan and her people are wonderful. We were in great hands from the moment we started our trip (coordinating our driver at the airport, in spite of Delta) until after we left (finding and mailing back a piece of overlooked jewelry).

They really do go above and beyond. For example, we had a small issue one morning with our car; the auto rental office was not open, so we called the property office to help us find assistance on our side of the island. Susan had one of her own people come over to help us.

After the trip my husband and I thought long and hard about anything we would want to change, we could come up with nothing that was not trivial.

Astral Ridge was truly our private little piece of paradise, if only for a week.

A little piece of perfection!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we first stepped onto the patio, we knew that Astral Ridge was all we could hope for in a villa. The views are outstanding and you truly feel as though you have your own little piece of paradise. We rented this due to the other reviews and the pictures on the rental website. Everything that we read was true and the views were even better than the pictures showed. I am the kind of person that likes to try something different each vacation, but we will be returning next year to Astral Ridge because I know we can't find a better villa for us.

Astral Cottage was rented for most of our stay, but we rarely encountered the couple staying there. We introduced ourselves upon arrival and saw them maybe once or twice the rest of the week. We never felt our privacy was intruded upon in the slightest. Parking is a little tight with two jeeps, requiring a couple of turns to get out, but nothing to be overly concerned about.

The living quarters were well kept and showed no signs of wear. There was a nice selection of dvds to watch and books to choose from. We didn't use them though as it was just too nice to be outside and enjoy the pool and view. The pool seems very natural since walls and floor are black and is rimmed with natural stone. It was really nice to jump in and get the salt water off quickly after returning from a day of snorkeling. I was afraid that it would be too cool since our rental last year was on the same side of Coral Bay, was quite cold and nearly unusable. That wasn't the case here though as we found the temperature to be quite refreshing without being cool. We also loved having a hot tub. I really didn't think we would use it that much, but it was a treat to jump in first thing in the morning and watch the sun come up. I can't think of a better way or place to watch this magical moment!

The bedding was outstanding and we found that the lack of air conditioning wasn't a problem. There is a ceiling fan directly above the bed along with a floor fan that you can position wherever you need. the bedroom offered plenty of storage options if you tend to over pack.

As nice as all the furnishings were, the real reason to stay here is for the superb setting made up of the patio and the surrounding landscape. It is so natural and beautiful. There are no railings, poles or other man-made objects to interfere with the view - only the surreal beauty that is St. John.
