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!

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. :)
