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.

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.

AMAZING Honeymoon at Astral Ridge!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing honeymoon visiting St. John and staying at Astral Ridge. Susan and her team were so easy to work with, responsive to emails, and were so accommodating when tropical storm Bertha hit on the last day of our visit. We LOVED staying here. The views are (in my opinion) some of the best on the island. The house is clean and the kitchen stocked with cooking supplies and everything you need to make a nice dinner at home. The house has a cooler and beach chair which made for some great beach days. The pool and hot tub are perfect and so relaxing! The whole place is romantic and wonderful. We cant wait to come back to Astral Ridge and all of its beauty!

Beautiful place to stay on cool side of the island

  • 5 of 5
This was our honeymoon week. The place was incredible and had beautiful views. St. John is a DIY kind of island with tons of beautiful, national park beaches. Susan's management company is on call 24/7 to help you with anything you need. Rent a jeep and go from beach to beach with your cooler and snorkel gear. Great place to honeymoon.
The driveway is certainly a steep climb, but we got the impression from speaking with others a lot of the houses are perched up high. Coral Bay is a cool side of the island and a little more relaxed. We only went into Cruz Bay a couple of times to take a boat tour and eat at La Tapa. Otherwise, Coral Bay has all you need too.

CAN'T IMAGINE ANYTHING BETTER

CAN'T IMAGINE ANYTHING BETTER
  • 5 of 5
In searching for a villa in St. John to rent we came across the Astral Ridge House represented by Calabash Cottages. Now no doubt the photos of the grounds, the view and the house were beautiful but I have to admit, it was the pool that sold us. Black interior, rimmed by natural stone, and heavily planted with hibiscus and Bougainvillea. It gives you the look and feel of swimming in a natural garden pond, not a rectangular or oval everyday sterile swimming pool. We made our reservations and everything was handled for us expertly by the calabash cottage management company. Upon arrival day, we were met by the very warm and friendly Mr. Fitz who showed us up to our new home in the hills above Coral Bay. After walking down a small flight of stairs through a verdant tropical garden, we came out onto the tile deck overlooking the bay and the BVI. We looked around a few minutes, looked at each other, and then looked back at Mr. Fitz and said " Mr Fitz, we are never leaving" at which point Mr Fitz replied " yes I know, everybody says that" And yes we could see why. The photos, as beautiful as they are, do not do this villa justice. Nothing could be improved on, not the grounds, not the view, and not the house itself the layout is perfect and believe me we looked. In fact, we were so enamored with the property, we inquired if it might possibly be for sale. Sadly, it's not.
But anyway, moving right along, you can't go wrong renting this property. The attention to detail by both the management company and the homeowner is 100% right on. We could find absolutely nothing to be improved on. We have already made our reservation for next year.

Exceptional Property!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in multiple properties over the years and I have to admit often times the pictures are not exactly what the property looks like upon arrival. This is not the case with Astral Ridge!! The property and views are exquisite! The house is beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation! I have never seen a view as beautiful and private as what is offered from the pool, deck, hot tub, bedroom, etc... I would highly recommend Astral Ridge!
