Overview

Coral Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Lovely spacious cottage with ocean view in very quiet area

Astral Cottage is a charming new cottage in a secluded setting with tropical gardens and a full-size hot tub. This cottage is designed with two stories. The lower floor has a lovely sitting room that opens onto the hot tub deck. This top quality spa is an excellent spot for star gazing. The kitchen is a lovely whimsical room that takes advantage of the tropical setting to give guests an open air insect-free cooking and dining experience. Under roof and fully screened, you are surrounded by the local fauna, tropical plantings, banana trees, etc. The kitchen is very well equipped, has terra cotta counter tops and teak furniture.

The bedroom is located on the second floor to afford a beautiful view of Coral Harbor and the Moravian church from the four poster bed. It also has a covered deck, with a beautiful ocean view. The Cottage can be rented with the main house for larger groups but when rented individually, the two share no facilities other than the parking area.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our 9th time to St. John and it never gets old. Our first time staying at Astral Cottage (always booked!) and it was great. Clean and spacious with nice views of Coral Bay, BVI and the hills of St. John. Comfortable on each floor with a cozy feel. A great place to relax and enjoy the breezes, birds and views. Worked perfectly for us.

5 star place

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an amazing place. Cottage is kind of a loose term because this building has beautiful details. The kitchen has full screens all around it so you are eating with all the vegetation and tree frogs outside. Two different balconies overlook the bay with spectacular views. We didn't need the support team, other than our greeter who showed us the place because everything was spotless and beautifully maintained. The Coral Bay side of the island is the quiet side which was perfect for us but still has many restaurants and bars with live music. I would give this place 6 or 7 stars but 5 is all this site will let us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. I am glad that you enjoyed the tropical ambiance. The kitchen at Astral Cottage always reminds me of a tree house. the tree frogs make delightful neighbors. It sounds like Astral Cottage was the perfect fit for you. So glad you chose to stay with us! Susan

What a wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Astral Cottage for our 30 year anniversary get-away. It was really wonderful! We are from Minnesota, so an amazing change from our Decembers - 81 degrees for high every day. The cottages was exceptionally clean. The views were amazing. The support staff went out of their way for us and were very friendly. Of all the places I've stayed, I don't think I've experienced that kind of welcoming and gracious support. Driving was an adventure - 4 wheeling to the cottage, and the narrow roads, not to mention driving on the left. Get the Jeep, it handled everything well! Snorkeling was more than I imagined it would be. My wife bought me a Ricoh underwater camera - well worth getting. I took some amazing shots!

Owner's Response: Dear Rob, Thank you for trusting us with your 30 year anniversary trip. I am very happy that the cottage and our staff lived up to your expectations. I have been in this business or 20 years and it is still gratifying to hear that guests appreciate the effort my staff and I make to welcome our guests. I also love to hear from first time snorkelers. I still remember my first glimpse of of a coral reef. It's a whole 'nother word down there. Thank you for staying with us. Susan

Perfectly Picturesque

  • 5 of 5

My lady and I recently traveled to St. John for a week of relaxation and natural beauty. Astral Cottage offered just that. The previous year I had stayed in Cruz Bay and making the move to the quiet side of the island was the perfect move. Starry nights who's soundtrack were curated by the symphony of singing tropical birds. Evenings spent in hot tub with a glass of wine from the nearby Calabash Market made for the perfect contrast to beautiful days at the beach. The cottage is a short drive from the popular north shore beaches but is even closer to a handful of secluded shores away from the tourists. Having a full kitchen to prepare meals was also a huge bonus. There's an organic vegetable farm nearby so fresh greens, herbs, cucumbers and bok choy were readily available. I will be returning next year and there's no doubt that I will be returning to this treetop paradise. Apart from all the benefits of the property, the team managing the property took great care of us and were quick to attend to our needs and answer our questions. An incredible value for the view, experience & service.

Owner's Response: I am very happy that Astral Cottage was such a good fit for the two of you. It's also nice to hear that you took advantage of some of the quietest beaches. I personally prefer some of the wilder rocky beaches to the north shore for the seclusion. It's rare that our guests find the organic farm so I am glad that you mentioned that. We look forward to seeing you next year! Susan

Wonderful Cottage in Coral Bay

  • 5 of 5

For Vermonters who had experienced lots of snow and sub zero weather this winter staying at Astral Cottage was a real treat. The location was wonderful. The cottage itself was extremely clean, well-maintained, and offered a real nice view of the Coral Bay area. Snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, and cooler were well used as we explored many of the area beaches and snorkeled them all. Enjoyed the hot tub several times. Did a kayak/snorkel with Hidden Eco-Tours (KayakSJ) and a sail/snorkel with the Kekoa catamaran. Both were wonderful. Area restaurants (Shipwreck, Aqua Bistro, Asolare, and Tourist Trap) quite good. Many thanks to Margaret, Diane, and Brian for all the excellent support in the booking, getting us there, and getting us home. Thanks also to Susan and her husband to a rapid response when the water pump needed some care. Want to come back to this cottage. Perhaps we'll bring some friends and take the main house as well. Until next time. Wade and Roberta Devlin-Scherer, Sunderland, Vermont.

Thanks again for staying with us and also for taking the time to write a review. I know that future guests appreciate hearing not only about your experience at the cottage but about the activities you enjoyed. The crew will also be happy to hear that you enjoyed their help. Hope to see you again if you return to St. John! Susan

Fantastic honeymoon hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

I would give Astral Cottage, Calabash Cottages, and all of their staff 5 out of 5 stars for every component of our stay. The place was exactly as pictured, even with the same view as in this photo! We enjoyed waking up every day to that beautiful scenery with nothing but the "jungle noises" around us. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

The best part is that the place is set up so that each cottage houses only 2 people. This meant that there was a great deal of privacy and we felt isolated (in a good way!).

Amazing place to stay for quite an affordable price (especially compared to the resorts on the island), and gives you the sense of being in "home away from home".

The staff were super helpful, even when our water filter stopped working at 7 am one day and we called them to report it, they fixed it within 20 minutes (and you have to drive up a dirt road on the side of the mountain to get to the house!).

Owner's Response: Thanks, Gina, for such a nice review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. I hope we see you on another visit to the island. Thanks again for staying at Astral Cottage. Susan

Map

Car: necessary

Astral Cottage is set in a very quiet location three quarters of a mile up a dirt road. Very few cars will pass during the day. The other house on the property, Astral Ridge, is secluded from the cottage by lush tropical gardens. The houses are oriented in such a way that guests enjoying the view from the deck of one of the houses will not be visible to the other. Each house has a private hot tub

Excellent snorkeling and swimming beaches are a short drive from the house and snorkle gear is provided. The nearest restaurant is within a mile and grocery stores boutiques, hiking trails and boating are just a bit farther. At Astral Cottage you will be able to enjoy a gorgeous view and solitude in a beautiful tropical setting but still have conveniences a short distance away.
