Guestbook comments from the manager
WOW!!! Where to begin? Fishbone is a little slice of heaven and was the perfect spot to enjoy all that St. John has to offer! The highlights of our trip included visiting beaches that were a bit off the beaten path and more secluded... Gibney Beach: beautiful, very private, where we got ENGAGED!!! Klein Bay "Pebble Beach" covered in beautiful rocks and pebbles, very secluded. Honeymoon Beach: 1 mile hike to one of the most gorgeous beaches on St. John. Good snorkeling, saw a ray.

Bad Kitty excursion was a blast! Great variety of stops (Virgin Gorda "The Baths," lunch on Cooper Island, snorkeling was phenominal, and White Bay was the last stop. Soggy Dollar Bar was FUN!

Two awesome places to eat were Waterfront Bistro and La Tapa. Delicious meals!! (A bit pricey)

Wildlife we encountered tons of lizards, iguanas, hummingbirds, mongoose, and donkeys.

Fishbone was everything we hoped for and more! The views are incredible, we loved the seclusion, the natural foliage, wildlife, artwork, outside decks, shower, and the comfy bed!! This is a place we will always remember and hope to come back to in our future. Thank you for creating a place as beautiful as the island it's built on! Kudos!

Cheers from 2 Fishbone Lovers,

Fishbone is your second home in the islands! Please visit us again and be part of the family.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

It has the privacy of the south shore. Al the surveyor saw the cottage as one of the first choice lots with panoramic views of the Caribbean and perched where the tropical breeze is captured. It is a traditional caribbean cottage.

Convenience to amenities, 2.5 miles to the town, ferry dining and entertainment in Cruz Bay, yet secluded enough as we say, to be clothing optional. :)

Beautiful and relaxing as promised!!

Our first visit to St. John and first real vacation together, we were looking for someplace secluded and special to stay, and Fish Bone exceeded all of our expectations! The photos depicted the villa perfectly, the amenitites more than met our needs, and we cannot comment enough how wonderful the views and breezes are, along with the soothing sounds of the ocean and excellent stargazing at night. The outdoor shower was an awesome bonus, one which could not be experienced at a hotel! I especially loved the artwork (that I realized halfway thru the week were all painted by Joan, the owner), and was fortuntate to bring home a painting depicting the view of Fish Bay so that we can wake up and go there "in our minds." We rented a jeep on St. Thomas and brought the car barge over (Discount Car Rental, recommended for lower pricing and excellent service). Gina (manager and island contact for Fish Bone) was willing to answer questions in advance of our trip and helped to set up a private yoga session for us on Gibney Beach which kicked off our week. While on the island, we wanted to "do it all" which we did...Fish Bone is conveniently located (close to Cruz Bay but also to many other beaches, visit Francis Bay for excellent snorkeling and turtles). Cloud 9 is highly recommended for a day sail to BVI and Jost Van Dyke; Mixed Bag for sportfishing! Both were excellent adventures!! We were fortunate to catch some fresh fish which we brought home to grill, and the lettuce and herbs growing at the villa were a wonderfully fresh addition to our meal! Barb and Cary from Paradise Massage even came to the Fish Bone to give us a couple's massage on the porch in the shade...paradise for sure! And don't miss out on the drive to Coral Bay where you will see donkeys and goats roaming the island freely. Kayaking out of Cinnamon Bay allows you to find hidden beaches with many other island treasures. Overall a perfect trip and we definitely plan to return, hopefully soon!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Fishbone is the perfect place to stay on St. John. It is close enough to Cruz Bay that you can run into town if needed but far enough away that you feel you are in a remote location. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need. The outdoor shower is heaven. The porches surround the house allowing for much outdoor entertainment space and the views are incredible. Fish Bay is gorgeous, and at night it feels like you are in a different world. We always had a great breeze so we never had to use the air conditioning. Reef Bay is short 15 min. walk to a beautiful private beach. Staying at Fishbone is much better than staying at a resort. I would love to go back again!

Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was my second visit to Fishbone Cottage- and the house and perfectly landscaped property is even more beautiful than remember it. Attention to detail is everywhere- from the original artwork to all the perfect appointments both inside and out. The cottage retains an authentic West Indian Caribbean character in addition to one of the most spectacular views of southern St.John. I would pile eagerly return to Fishbone as soon as I can manage another escape from the gray north.

Charming, breathtaking, wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Fishbone is a special, special place. I will never forget my stay at this wonderful little house. Views were amazing, hummingbirds within a foot of your face on the balcony, wonderful outdoor shower. Really, just superb. The owner has put her special touch on a home full of art and fun colors. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment to have meals outside each morning and at night. I can't say enough about this place. As wonderful as St John is, (that is a whole other post), I wish we spent more time at the Fishbone house!!! Sooooo romantic!!!!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
What can we say that hasn't already been said? Fishbone is heaven on earth! The view inside is as beautiful as outside...(the artwork is fantastic!!! We would have loved to bring home a little piece as a constant reminder of our fabulous stay!) The information you provided was very helpful as well, we've been to the island before, but learned of some really interesting new places. We love the funkiness of the place; the colors, (even the whimsical silverware!), as well as the cleanliness and the true Caribbean charm. We've only been home for a week, but we are already planning on returning to Fishbone next year....As we said, it is Heaven! Thanks for sharing your beautiful place.

Loved Fishbone - our trip was too short

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent one short night in Fishbone between one rental and our trip back home. We wish we'd stayed longer and will be back. The place has all you need for a two-person stay - bedroom downstairs, kitchen and living area upstairs, magnificent deck and a perfect view. Linens are luxurious and the kitchen has all one would need. The outdoor grill is top of the line -we wish we'd had more to grill!

Fishbone is close to Cruz Bay but incredibly secluded (you see nobody else, at all). All of the furnishings appear brand news and are full of fun details. The place has "good karma" and color written all over it.
