Overview

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Sweet Wind is a West Indian style home that sits just above secluded Hurricane Hole, which is a pebble beach that you can walk down to and has good snorkeling and kayaking. The villa is very private, quiet and secluded, being in the Nat. Park, but it's just 1/2 mile from Coral Bay which sports live music most nights, shopping and fine or informal dining. The place is designed in the more traditional West Indian style of 3 individual buildings with large decks connecting them. The main house being the kitchen, living room,and dinning room. There is a bedroom and bathroom attached via a private deck on the West side of the main house. On the East side of the main house there is a 3rd building, housing 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a large deck in between w/ dining table and lounge chairs. All the rooms have views, you feel like you are floating right over the ocean, and this layout makes them very private.

A lot of love and care whet into designing Sweet Wind, it's my own private art gallery, with hardwood floors, Purple Heart cabinets, fine dishes, antique furniture, local treasures and a bit of humor. There are two separate decks for complete privacy. One of the showers is outside, built with beautiful rock work. The bedrooms are in separate buildings,or pods which adds to the beauty and privacy. There is a lovely grotto behind the villa with an amazing stone retaining wall 9' tall and 100' long running all along the back side, that has the BBQ, orchids, flowers and herbs, and an outside shower. The villa has gates at both entrances that keep the wild donkeys out and children in.

You wake up to a amazing sunrise above Hurricane Hole. This is the most protected harbor in the Caribbean, and we look out over the Coral Reef National Monument, so there is no over night mooring allowed unless there is a storm warning. Sweet Wind is very quiet and private but we are just 1/2 a mile from town.

I think the photos say it all, Nina.

About Nina Hahler

I live with my dog Lucy here in beautiful Hurricane Hole. I am a painter and a musician. I use oils, pastels and water colours, and enjoy playing the mandolin and slide guitar. I had a salmon troller for most of my life and fished out of Sitka Alaska.

Nina Hahler purchased this house in 2008

Why Nina Hahler chose Coral Bay

Sweet Wind is just above Hurricane Hole in the National Park and over looks Coral Reef National Monument. All you see is the ocean and the green hills, this is a very private location. Looking over the deck railings all you see is water with the National Park behind. Boats can not overnight moor in the Coral Reef Nat. Monument and there are alomst no other houses in view. It's very quiet and peaceful here, the view is amaizing, and still close to town

What makes this house unique

Located 1/2 of a mile from the town of Coral Bay, shopping, restaurants and all types of water sports await you. The house is a West Indian style with hip roofs, three pods with private decks between, with greenheart floors, cyprus wainscoting and antique Caribbean furniture. The full kitchen has beautiful antique caribbean style purple heart cabinets with stone countertops. Open the back kitchen door and there is a lovely grotto, with a gas barbeque and a potted garden full of herbs herbs and spices. The villa affords great views and privacy. The views from most every room feel like you are floating over the ocean, all you see is water and Nat. park land. It is breathtaking and amazingly private.

Relaxing Week in Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Nina, for sharing this special spot you've created. The cottages are comfortable and well planned for two couples to spend a week sharing the common area and then each having their own private space. I loved the outdoor shower. (If you stay here, be sure to take a shower at night under the stars.) We also liked using the fins and beach chairs you provided on our day trips. The cottages are not far from nice beaches and day hikes. The best part of the week for me was being able to play one of your guitars and look out over the water in the evenings. The view from the deck is wonderful since it looks out to the National Park and land that is just as it was hundreds of years ago. It was so nice to meet you and get to share this spot for a little while!

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a great stay at Sweet Winds. The pictures don't do this place justice, the house is beyond perfect. The set up was great for two couples, we had a lot of privacy. The view of Hurricane Hole is amazing. Nina lives right next door and was always around if we had any questions. We love Nina! The house was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The beach chairs could be upgraded, but that's about the only complaint any of us had. The house is in a nice and quiet spot, she has a record player and a tons of records, so it was fun to blast music and not have to worry about bothering anyone. There place doesn't have an air conditioner, but you don't need it. Each room has a big screen door that you can keep open, and because of the wind there were NO bugs at all. The house is surrounded by a big deck which was great to hang out in either day or night. I can't wait to book my stay for next year at Sweet Winds!!!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

You will never stay at a more beautiful, comfortable, and affordable villa than "Sweet Wind". It overlooks the natural unspoiled beauty of St. John's Hurricane Hole and the uninhabited mountains beyond. It has everything you will need for a relaxing, romantic, or family vacation.

Back again at Sweet Wind

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed another wonderful vacation on St John at Sweet Wind. Nina was a great hostess and she is a great painter. Place is great for 2 or 3 couples and the outdoor shower is wonderful. No need for air conditioning--the sweet winds keep you comfortable. Coffee on the deck at sunrise shouldn't be missed. Cooking, grilling and Wisconsin basketball helped to make this a truly relaxing vacation. Nina's help with our fresh conch made a great meal. Sorry to leave and wish we were still there! The Lukomski's and Anderson's

Perfect Place on a beautiful island

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in Nina's beautiful house in the past two years but couldn't make it this year because of vacation times not working out. I thought I'd finally review her place so that someone else could enjoy it. First of all, it is exactly as shown in the photos - they are completely accurate. The view is fantastic, and the house is immaculate clean and comfortable, and Nina's creativity can be seen in all the details. Nina is a great host - she manages to be fun and funky and completely professional at the same time. She definitely knows the island! Wonderful place, best location, great owner! The driveway on the other hand? make sure you have four wheel drive.

Missing it this year!

WOW

  • 5 of 5

This place was every thing the listing says and more. Very private. Low traffic maybe a car every 2 hours goes by on the road below. Even though private and secluded Restaurants are within 5 minutes though. The home is beautiful with everything you need. Nina was a great host, she lives next door but you never see her unless you need her. She is available to help you with anything if you need her. The view is spectacular the pictures do not do it justice. There is nothing to block your view of the bay and the bay not used by boats so it is unspoiled. It was our first visit to the Virgin Islands so we road by the other places we thought about renting and were very happy we chose sweet wind it was by far the best option of the many places that we had thought about renting. Just to give you an idea of the view the place next door is for sale for 14 million if your interested.
